Brother Majed Jarrar from Ottawa, Ontario is visiting Vancouver.

On Thursday evening, he shared a short backgrounder on the significance of Dhul-Hijjah at Ajyal Islamic Centre.

He then delivered the Jumah Qhutbah (Friday Sermon) at Muslim Association of Canada Vancouver earlier today.

I was able to attend both.

Video is Br. Majed Jarrar’s 45-ish minute lecture on Islamic Jurisprudence of The First Ten Days of Dhul-Hijjah.

His presentation was methodical as he narrated each of his points in an easy-to-digest manner. I learned so many important take-aways about these most important 10 days of the year, many things I had never learned before, ever. He also explains why we never learn this knowledge nowadays.

To only mention a few of those teachings:

  • Ramadan is a Training for the day-to-day Living during The First Ten Days of Dhul-Hijjah
  • Ramadan is Communal, we have a group dynamic which encourages positive behaviour. Dhul-Hijjah is Personal, did we learn and are we applying what we trained for in Ramadan?
  • The First Ten Days of Dhul-Hijjah are More Important and Blessed than the Last Ten Nights of Ramadan
  • During Ramadan, Good Deeds are Multiplied. During the First Ten Days of Dhul-Hijjah, Good AND Bad Deeds are Multiplied, so, whoops, we better watch ourselves, eh?
  • Takbeerat is to be said aloud not only on the morning of Eid-Al-Adha, but throughout the First Ten Days of Dhul-Hijjah. [ More on Takbeerat below ]

Please consider watching the entire video then apply and share what you can.
