  1. Some notes:

    We are now in the blessed days of Dhul Hijjah. How fast they are going. We only have a few days left. And it includes the day of Arafah. In a Hadeeth, it mentions that the day of Arafah is the day the most slaves are freed from the hell fire.

    The scholars differed as to whether it includes everyone in the world or only those performing Hajj.

    Allah then boasts to the angels asking them what the slaves want. The angels say they want your forgiveness and Jannah.

    Allaah loves righteous actions on Arafah. Did we use these 10 days? Did we recite Quran? Did we forgive our Muslim brothers? We still have a few days left.

    The prophet said that fasting on the day of Arafah, which for us is on Monday (this year), expiates the sins of the previous year and the year that is coming.

    We cannot throw these days away. Let your husband, wife, children know that there is fasting on Monday. Prepare.

    In a Hadeeth it mentions that the best supplication is the supplication on Arafah. The best supplication made by the prophets is Laa Ilaahah Ill Allaah, Wahdahu Laa Shareekalah… To the end of the Hadeeth.

    The day of Eid is on the 10th of Dhul Hijjah.

    It is a Sunnah on Eid to attend the Eid Salah. Even the women who are in their mensus should attend. Too many of us have fallen into the rituals of the non-Muslims. Getting involved in their celebrations.

    Make Islamic holidays a big thing. Not the Kuffaars. Buy new clothes for Eid. Don’t spoil this Eid by wearing tight clothing. Fear Allaah in how you dress.

    On the day of Eid, it’s Sunnah to sacrifice for those who have the ability. Sending the sacrifice elsewhere is not from the Sunnah. Do it locally.

    The prophet ate from his own sacrifice and distribute it. Instead send Sadaqah elsewhere if you can. That would be Sadaqah and not the official sacrifice.

    Another misconception is that everyone in a household should sacrifice. Rather, one is enough for a household.

    Let’s value what Allah has given us. Don’t let us just pass by it. May Allaah make us of those who are forgiven.
