THE FIRST TEN DAYS OF DHUL HIJJAH

IMPORTANCE OF FIRST TEN DAYS OF ZIL-HIJJAH

The first ten days of Zul Hijjah are among the most magnificent days in Islamic calendar. The Messenger of Allah, Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said: “There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days.” (Hadith -Bukhari)

The Messenger of Allah, Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam, has said, “One fast during these days is equal to the fasting of one complete year, and the worship of one night during this period is equal to the worship of “Lailatul-Qadr”.(Hadith-Tirmizi)

Every Muslim should avail oneself of this wonderful opportunity by performing as much Ibadah (acts of worship) as he or she can during this period.

THE TAKBEERAAT OF TASHREEQ

It is Wajib (incumbent) for every adult to recite the Takbeeraat of Tashreeq after every Fardh Salaat-performed with Jamaat or individually from the Fajr of the 9th of Zul-Hijjah to the Asr of the 13th of Zul Hijjah. The Takbeeraat should be recited once only.

The words of the Takbeeraat of Tashreeq are as follows:

اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ لَا إلَهَ إلَّا اللَّهُ وَاَللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ وَلِلَّهِ الْحَمْدُ

Transliteration: Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar laa ilaha illallahu wallahu akbar. Allahu Akbar walillaahil hamd.

Translation: “Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest. There is no deity besides Allah and Allah is the Greatest. Allah is the Greatest and all praises belong to Him Alone.”

FASTING ON THE DAY OF ARAFAH (9 ZIL HIJJAH)

It was reported from Abu Qutaadah that the Messenger of Allah(peace be upon him) was asked about fasting on the Day of ‘Arafah ( 9 Dhul Hijjah). He said, “It atones for the sins of the previous year and of the coming year.” (Hadith-Muslim)

QURBANI / UDHIYYA

Zaid bin Arqam (R.A.) reports that the Companions of Rasulullah (Sallalaho alihe wassallam) asked him:

‘‘ Oh Prohpet of Allah (pbuh), what is this sacrifice?” He said: “It is the way of your forefather Ibrahim(AS) .” They asked:“What (reward) is for us therein?” He replied: “There is a reward for every hair (i.e. the reward for meat and useful parts of the animal’s body will be very lofty in merit, but there will also be a great reward for the parts which are useless and thrown away such as the hair).” They asked: “For the wool, Ya Rasulullah?” He replied: “There is one reward for every strand of wool.” (Ahmed, Ibn Majah)

Ten Blessed Days

By His wisdom, Allah Ta’ala gave preference to some places and times over others. Friday is the best day of the week, Ramadan is the best month of the year, “Laylat al-Qadr” is the best night in Ramadan, the day of “Arafah” is the best day of the year. Likewise the first ten days of the month of “Dhul-Hijjah” are the most blessed days.

On the merits of the first ten days, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is reported to have said: “There are no days in which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days.” (Al-Bukhari)

In what follows are suggested ideas on how to make the best use of the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah:

Repent to Allah

Make a sincere repentance to Allah Ta’ala and promise Him that you will not do bad deeds again. This may be your last chance. You are not sure if you will live till next year.

Observe Fasting in the First Nine Days

Abu Sa`id al-Khudri said: I heard the Prophet saying, “Indeed, anyone who fasts for one day for Allah’s Pleasure, Allah will keep his face away from the (Hell) fire for (a distance covered by a journey of) seventy years.” (Muslim)

Fasting the Day of Arafah

On the day of Arafah, non-pilgrims are highly recommended to maintain fasting. It is reported that the Prophet was asked about fasting on the day of Arafah, whereupon he said: “It expiates the sins of the preceding year and the coming year.” (Muslim)

He also said: “There is no day in which Allah frees a greater number of His slaves from the Hellfire than the Day of Arafah.” (Muslim)

Supplications (duaa) on the Day of Arafah

The Prophet said: “The best supplication is that of the Day of `Arafah, and the best thing that I and other Prophets before me said, is: La ilaha illa allahu wahdahu la sharika lah, lahu al-mulku wa lahu al-hamdu wa huwa `ala kulli shai’in qadeer (There is no Allah Ta’ala but Allah alone. He has no partners. To Him belong the sovereignty and all praise. He has power over all things.) (Al-Tirmidhi)

Reciting the Takbir

It is an act of Sunnah to say “Takbir” (Allah is the Greatest) in the first ten days.

The “Takbir” should be pronounced as much as possible in the mosque, at home, in the streets, etc. It is reported that: “Ibn `Umar and Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with them) used to go out in the marketplace during the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah, reciting Takbir, and the people would recite Takbir when they heard them.” (Al-Bukhari)

There are many forms of Takbir, but the most common one is: Allahu akbaru, Allahu akbaru, Allahu akbaru, la illaha illa Allah, Allahu akbaru, Allahu akbar, wa lillahi al-Hamd.

I pray to Allah to accept our good deeds in these days of Dhul-Hijjah and throughout the year.

It is reported in the Sahih of Imam Muslim that one day our Prophet Muhammad(S) was once sitting on one of the houses of Medinah. He looked around and said to the Sahabas: “Do you see what I’m seeing” They said “What oh Messenger of Allah” The Prophet answered: I see trials and tribulations falling upon your houses like the drops of rain. The frequency , the quantity will affect everybody”

In another Hadith, our Prophet(S) said that towards end of time, trials would become repetitive by nature. Every time a trial/calamity would come, the believers would become scared and terrified. They will say that we cannot pass this trial. The Prophet(S) said Allah will open up the doors and let it go away. Then another will come, they will say “ This is my destruction” and so on and so forth.

Nowadays when we look at how many incidents are taking place, how many issues that are rising day by day. We can see the difference of the how the world was before and what it has become now!

A masjid and Islamic school has been targeted with an explosive device in Minnesota, while the Shaykh and community were in prayer.

Alhamdulillah the Shaykh was not in his office at the time of the blast, and no one was injured.

I was at that masjid earlier this year, visiting one of the gentlest and kindest and erudite scholars who lives in this land, and someone whom I consider a teacher (and who graciously granted me ijaazahs in Hadith): Sh Waleed al-Minneesi.

We need to be cognizant that the America many of us grew up in and used to live in is no longer the America of today. The rise of Islamophobia, and the phenomenon of Donald Trump, are symptoms of a far greater problem that always existed but is only now rearing its ugly face to the Muslim community. That problem is the problem of xenophobia; a feeling that ‘we’ (in this case, a large demographics of this land, predominantly white, nominally Christian, typically middle and lower middle class) are better than ‘you’ (that’s anyone other than the majority : Latinos, immigrants, Muslims). That, coupled with the fear and lies being maliciously spread against Islam, makes it possible for people to bomb houses of worship believing that they are somehow doing a good deed.

We have no choice but to rise to this challenge. We need to do what we can to protect ourselves and our families, and to fight this bigotry and hatred with education and the best of manners.

And Allah is the only source of protection, and in Him we put our trust.

The Diet of the Prophet ﷺ
Full Talk: http://akacademy.org/prophets-family-life/
In one hadith of Bukhari Umm al-mu’minīn Aisha says, “For two whole months the fire in the hearth of the home of The Messenger of Allah ﷺ would not be lit because there was no solid food to cook and occasionally we would receive a gift of milk.”
The Prophet ﷺ loved meat, but never would he overindulge and consume it regularly. We live in a time where meat and good food are plenty, often leading to overindulging lifestyles with disregard to our physical health. On the other hand there are some of us who count the amount of calories we consume to monitor our diet and try to live a healthier lifestyle by choosing the food we eat.
The Prophet ﷺ remains a prime example of how we should live our lives on a daily basis. His routine would balance the perfect lifestyle to keep himself physically, mentally and spiritually fit.
Find out in this short excerpt what the Prophet ﷺ would eat and how much meat he would consume when he was invited to a meal.

A beautiful anecdote about our Prophet (salla Allah alayhi wa sallam) playing with children:

Ya`la reported, “Once, we were invited to a dinner, and we went with the Prophet (salla Allah alayhi wa sallam). We came across Husayn playing in the streets, so the Prophet (salla Allah alayhi wa sallam) rushed ahead of us and opened his arms [to embrace him]. But instead, Husayn ran away, trying to escape, and [the Prophet (salla Allah alayhi wa sallam)] went here and there, laughing, until he finally caught him. He placed one arm under his chin, and the other over his head [meaning: the Prophet (salla Allah alayhi wa sallam) grabbed Husayn from behind] and hugged him, and said, ‘Husayn is from me and I am from Husayn. May Allah love the one who loves Husayn. Husayn shall be [like a] tribe of the tribes (sibṭ min al-asbāṭ)”

Reported by Imam al-Bukhari in his al-Adab al-Mufrad (# 364).

From this Hadith, we can derive the following benefits:

– The eagerness of the Companions to invite the Prophet (salla Allah alayhi wa sallam) to their houses, and his gentle nature in agreeing to go and making them happy.

– The simple life of the people of Madinah – here the Prophet (salla Allah alayhi wa sallam) is walking in the alleyways, there Husayn is playing as a child his age (probably 5 years old at the time) would.

– The playful and loving nature of the Prophet (salla Allah alayhi wa sallam), for him to not be embarrassed to demonstrate his love for his grandchildren, and to run around in the streets, in front of his Companions, in a ‘catch me if you can’ type of routine with Husayn.

– The noble status of Husayn, radi Allah anhu, and the high regard that the Prophet (salla Allah alayhi wa sallam) had for him.

– The prediction that Husayn shall have many children and that his lineage will continue after him, like the descendants of Ibrahim (as). The term ‘sibṭ’ is also used in the Quran to describe the children of Yaqub, the grandson of Ibrahim.

Note: The love of the Family of the Prophet (salla Allah alayhi wa sallam) is established as a fundamental of theology in all circles of Sunnī Islam. Sadly, some have gone to extremes in this regard, in both ways. So, at times, when the blessings of the Family of the Prophet are mentioned, as per authentic Hadith, some ignorant people become uncomfortable and feel that the speaker has deviated to another sect! And on the other extreme, some groups have given mystical and even semi-divine characteristics to the Family of the Prophet, claiming that they control the creation, or that the creation was made for them, or that the creation should be ruled by them.

Our Prophet (salla Allah alayhi wa sallam) was the best human, and his family is the best family. Just as we love him, we love his family (which includes his children but also his wives), and we love his Companions.


Q: Do We Have Free Will Or Is Everything Predestined?

Allah (SWT) created us with the ability to make choices. We have free will. Yet, it is mentioned that Allah (SWT) has predestined everything.

Allah (SWT) knows what is going to happen to you 5 years from now, even 10 years. He knows every single aspect of your life even before you were born into this world.

A companion once came to the Prophet (PBUH) asking this exact question. The companion asked what is the point of doing anything if everything is already predestined?

I answer the question and explain the hadith in the video below.

Before you take this world too seriously! Check this Hadith out.

Mālik Ibn Dinaar said: “Whoever proposed to the world, then the world would not be satisfied until he gave up his Deen as dowry.”

A detailed analysis on the hadith of Allah being more merciful than the mother and how we reconcile His mercy with His punishment.

The Infinitely Merciful and the Question of Hellfire

*NEW PUBLICATION* If God is The Most Merciful, why does hellfire exist? This question is a common source of doubt for many young Muslims. “The Infinitely Merciful and the Question of Hellfire” by Mohammad Elshinawy focuses on one famous tradition of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ regarding God’s mercy and the hellfire and refutes the claim that this tradition is counterintuitive. Read the entire publication here – http://bit.ly/2t3sVG8

Not everyone is going to like what I’m about to say, but it needs to be said.

Dear imams and shayukh, when a sister comes to you begging for khula (divorce), you are not helping her by refusing, or by telling her to have “sabr” and go back to an abusive relationship “for the sake of her children.” You are hurting her *and* her children and aiding oppression.

Allow me to tell you why.

If she does go back, she will continue to be harmed.
But if she doesn’t, here is what will happen behind the scenes, without you ever knowing what you’ve caused:
When you refuse to grant khula with justice, the woman is left to the mercy of the husband. Now he has the power to place all sorts of unjust conditions before he grants her the khula. Some men will unjustly demand money (beyond the mahr–which is only to be paid in cases with no abuse), while others will demand full custody of the kids. In any case, the refusal of the imam allows for this injustice.

This is a distortion of the sunnah. Upon the returning of the mahr, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) granted divorce (khula) to the wife of Thabit bin Qais without protest (see Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 7.197). What is being practiced today is a far diversion from the sunnah, and a grave injustice. You aren’t improving on the sunnah.

And it needs to stop.

Light of the Qur’an:

These next 3 days all of us will go through pangs of hunger as we fast more than 4 hours – our gastric emptying time.

As you feel the hunger remember that this fast can never be taken away from you on the day of Judgement. Even if we owe other people our deeds for some mistake that we have done to them; they can never take our fasts.

“..the fasting is for me and I will reward him for it..” [Hadith Qudsi in AlBukhari]

So it is the closest of our deeds that will always stay with us. Some scholars also said since the reward has no clear limits, that it is too large to measure on the scales on the judgement. This is the beauty of Fasting. Finally, fasting will witness for us on the Day of Judgement. Ibn Rajab alHanbali said: Fast the long hot days seeking for food and drink on a day that is longer and hotter than any days on Earth. Allah give me and you food and drink on the plains of the Day of Judgement and delight when we meet Him ameen ya Rabb.

Hadith 14: The Poisoned Well; Burying Elitist Privilege.

Asalaam Alaykum brothers and sisters.

Bismillah. Alhamdulillah. Wa salaat wa Saleem ala rusulullah. (Saw)

Share this please.

I must warn you all to be very careful about investing any of your hard earned cash into One Coin, information is NOW surfacing to show it may not be what it claims to be. I urge you NOT to just trust without a good long hard look at it before parting with your cash.

A few questions to ask:- does OC have a blockchain? Can you sell your coins?
How long will it take before you recover your investment? Is it sharia compliant, is OC certified? Are there any Police investigations in process? How many OC bank accounts have been closed around the globe over the past two years? How many countries have criminalised trading in OC? At the end of the day it’s a free world. It’s your choice.

But as the prophet pbuh mentioned None of you truly believes until he loves for others as he loves for himself. Hadith.

May we be guided to do the right thing. Ameen.

Please share any information you may have to assist research into OC.
