Imam's Message

Assalamualikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

 

Insha'Allah this email finds everyone in the best of imaan and health.

 

The best 10 days of the year, the first ten days of the Islamic month Zulhijjah.  Try and do as many good deeds as possible, for on these days good deeds are more beloved to Allah than any other days according to an authentic hadeeth:

 

It is narrated from Ibn Abbaas (RAA) that the Prophet (SAW) said: "There are no days in which righteous deeds done in them are more beloved to Allah than these days, ie the ten days (of Zul-Hijjah). They said: O Messenger of Allah, not even Jihaad in the path of Allah? He said: Not even Jihaad in the Path of Allah, the Most High, except if a man goes out (for Jihaad) with his self and his wealth, then he doesn't return with anything from that." (Al-Bukhaaree, Abu Daawood and others. The exact wording is that of Abu Daawood)

 

So sacred are the first ten days of Zulhijjah that Allah SWT swears an oath by them when He (SWT) says in the Quran:

وَالْفَجْرِ وَلَيَالٍ عَشْرٍ

"By the dawn; by the ten nights (i.e. the first ten days of the month of Zulhîjjah)" [al-Fajr 89:1-2]

It is narrated from Ibn Umar that the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said: "There aren't any days greater, nor any days in which deeds done in them are more beloved to Allah, the Most High, than these ten days (of Zul-Hijjah). So, increase in them the saying of Tahleel (La Ilaaha illa Allah), and Takbeer (Allah Akbar) and Tahmeed (al-Hamdu li-llah)" (Musnad Imaam Ahmad)   

DEEDS THAT ONE CAN PERFORM IN THE FIRST 10 DAYS OF ZULHIJJAH

1, Fasting during these days 

From Abu Sa'eed al-Khudree who said that the Messenger of Allah said: No servant (of Allah, the Most High) fasts one day in the Path of Allah, except that Allah, the Most High, removes his face from the Fire because of it (the distance of traveling) seventy years. (Al-Bukhaaree and Muslim)

From Abu Qatadah that the Prophet said: Fasting the Day of Arafah will be credited with Allah by forgiving one's sins of the previous year and the following year. (Muslim) 

2. Doing plenty of voluntary (nafl) righteous deeds of worship like Prayer, Charity,  reading the Qur'an, Commanding what is Good and Forbidding what is Evil, and other such deeds. 

3. Qurbani (sacrifice of animal) The slaughtering of a sacrificial animal (Adhiyah) is also legislated for the Day of Sacrifice (10th) and the Days of Tashreeq (11th, 12th and 13th).

It is related by Aayesha (r.a.) that Rasulullah (s.a.w.) said, 'There is nothing dearer to Allah Ta'ala during the days of sacrifice than the sacrificing of animals. The sacrificed animal shall come on the day of Qiyamah with its horns, hair and hooves (to be weighed in reward). The sacrifice is accepted by Allah Ta'ala before the blood reaches the ground. Therefore sacrifice with an open and happy heart." (Tirmizhi, Ibn Majah)

Zaid ibn Arqam (r.a.) related that the companions of Rasulullah (s.a.w.) asked, "O Rasulullah, what is sacrifice?" He replied, "it is the Sunnah of your father Ibraheem". They asked again, "What benefit do we get from it?" he answered, "A reward for every hair of the sacrificed animal." And what reward is there for animals with wool?" they asked. "A reward," he said, 'for every fibre of the wool." (Ibn Majah, Musnad Ahmad, Mishkaat) 

4. Those who do the Qurbani, It is Sunnah to refrain from cutting nails  and hair.

 It has been narrated from Umm Salamah (may Allah be pleased with her) that the P rophet said: If you see the Hilal (new moon) of Zul-Hijjah, and any one of you wants to make a sacrifice, then he should not cut (anything) from his hair and his nails. (Muslim and others) . 

 And in one narration, he said: "Then he should not cut (anything) from his hair, nor from his nails, until he performs the sacrifice". Perhaps this is because of the similarity with the one who is bringing a sacrificial animal for slaughter (in Hajj). As Allah, the Most High, said: "And do not shave your heads until the Hady (sacrifice) reaches the place of sacrifice..." The apparent meaning of this prohibition is that it is particularly for the one whom the sacrifice is for, and does not include the wife or children, unless there is an individual sacrifice for one of them. There is no h arm in washing the head, or scratching it, even if hairs may fall out. 

5. Perform the Eid prayer. It is incumbent for the Muslim (who is not performing Hajj) to make every effort to perform the Eid Prayer wherever it is performed, and to be present for the Khutbah and benefit

The Masjid

The masjid is a sanctified area, in which the rewards of prayers in congregation increase 25 to 27 times and where the mercy of Allah descends. It is considered the best of places by the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him).

Ibn 'Abbas (may Allah be pleased with him) relates:

"Masjids are the houses of Allah on the earth. They shine up to the inhabitants of the heavens just as the stars in the sky shine down to the inhabitants of the earth."

A true masjid, in the legal sense, is a place that has been permanently dedicated to Allah for the sake of prayer, recitation, and His remembrance. Any piece of land that has been dedicated permanently for the sake of congregational prayers will also become a proper masjid..
