بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِِ
A Khutbah Given by Shaykhul Islm Muhammad bin Abdil Wahhb (Rahimahullh) in the Ten Days of Dhul Hijjah1

All praise due to Allh, the One who honoured the days and months some above the others2, administrates the Ahkm (pl. Hukm; Rulings) with legalization and abrogation, warns the unmindful hearts by Tadhkr (remembrance) and Wadh (admonition), the Rabb (Lord), al-Mlik (the Owner) which there is no change or elimination in His Rubbiyyah (Lordship), the Haqq (True) Ilh (deity/god) whom Ilhiyyah (divinity) is not Haqq except for Him. I praise Him, Subhnahu upon emphasis to His Ihsn (perfection) and His Ifdhl (favouring). I thank Him upon His plentiful kindness and granting.

I bear witness that there is no god -worthy of worship- except Allh, He is One and He has no partner in His Rubbiyyah, Ilhiyyah, and His Kaml (Perfect) Sift (Attributes). A testimony which I hope with it an-Najt (salvation) from the severity of the Terrifying Day (Yawmul Qiymah i.e. the Day of Resurrection) and its horrors. I also bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and His Rasl (Messenger) whom Allh bestowed upon from all of the Ahlul Ardh (the People of the Earth) by dispatching him and sending him (Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam). O Allh, send salutations on Your slave and Rasl Muhammad, and upon all of his Ashb (companions) and his l (family), and send abundance of Salm (peace) upon them.

Amm Bad (to proceed);

O people, fear Allh Tal as He Tal should be feared, and desire from the acts that which He Tal loves and is pleased with. Know that you are in a Karm (blessed) month, and a tremendous season, especially these ten blessed (days); for verily, they are known days which Allh Tal took an oath3 with in the Muhkam (clear-cut) yt (pl. of yh; verses), thus take them as booty, may Allh have mercy upon you by hastening in the Aml (pl. of Amal; deeds) which are Sliht (pl. of Slih; righteous) and performing a lot of the Hasant (pl. of Hasana; good deeds); for verily the Hasant remove the Sayyit (pl. of Sayyiah; evil deeds).4

Ibdullh (slaves of Allah), these are days of doubling of the Hasant, these are days of answering the Dawt (pl. of Du), these are days of vastness and breeze, these are days of freeing the slave from the grave sins, and these are the seasons of earning and Jihd/struggle according to the possessors of concern and neediness. So increase the Tasbh (saying Subhnallh), the Tahmd (saying al-Hamdulillh), the Tahll (saying L Ilha Illllh), the Takbr (saying Allhu Akbar), the Istighfr (saying Astaghfirullh), the Tawbah (seeking repentance), and the Iql (abstaining) from the Dhunb (sins) and the Sayyit. Do not go developing amongst you in heedlessness and persistence in Shahawt (pl. of Shahwa; desires), thus repent until repentance does not benefit (until a person faces with death or until the sun rises from the west).

It has been affirmed from Raslullh (Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam) that he said,


ما من أيام العمل الصالح أحب إلى الله فيهن من هذه الأيام العشر. قالوا: يا رسول الله، ولا الجهاد في سبيل الله. قال: ولا الجهاد في سبيل الله، إلا رجل خرج بنفسه وماله، ولم يرجع من ذلك بشيء
There are no days in which Amalus Slih (righteous deeds) are more beloved to Allh than those ten days (in the month of Dhul Hijjah). They said: O Messenger of Allh! Not even Jihd f Sablillh (in Allh Cause)? The Messenger of Allh Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam) said: Not even Jihd f Sablillh (in Allh's Cause), unless a man were to out with his self and his wealth and not return from that with anything. (With similar wording; Bukhr, Hadth no: 969; Ibnu Majah, Hadth no: 1727; Ab Dwd, Hadth no: 2438; Tirmidh, Hadth no: 757)

It is also narrated from Raslullh (Sallallhu Alayhi wa Sallam) that he said,

"صيام يوم عرفة أحتسب على الله أن يكفر السنة التي قبله والسنة التي بعده"
Fast the Day of Arafah, for indeed I anticipate that Allh will forgive (the sins) of the year after it, and the year before it. (With similar wording; Muslim, Hadth no: 1162; Ab Dwd, Hadth no: 2425; Tirmidh, Hadth no: 749; Ibnu Majah, Hadth no: 1802)

I seek refuge in Allh from Shaytn (devil) the outcast,

سَابِقُوا إِلَى مَغْفِرَةٍ مِنْ رَبِّكُمْ وَجَنَّةٍ عَرْضُهَا كَعَرْضِ السَّمَاءِ وَالْأَرْضِ أُعِدَّتْ لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا بِاللَّهِ وَرُسُلِهِ ذَلِكَ فَضْلُ اللَّهِ يُؤْتِيهِ مَنْ يَشَاءُ وَاللَّهُ ذُو الْفَضْلِ الْعَظِيمِ
Be ye foremost (in seeking) forgiveness from your Lord, and a Garden (of Bliss), the width whereof is as the width of heaven and earth, prepared for those who believe in Allh and His messengers: that is the Grace of Allh, which He bestows on whom He pleases: and Allh is the Lord of Grace abounding. (al-Hadd 57/21)

I ask Allh to bless me and you in the Adhm (the Great) Qurn, and I ask Him to benefit me and you in the Hakm (Wise) Dhikr (Remembrance; i.e. the Qurn). I say this statement of mine, and I ask Allh al-Adhm (the Great), al-Jall (the Noble/Mighty) to forgive me, you, and the rest of the Muslimn (pl. of Muslim) from every sin. Thus seek forgiveness from Him, verily He is al-Ghafr (the Forgiver) ar-Rahm (the Most Merciful)!

والعالم يعرف الجاهل؛ لأنه كان جاهلا، والجاهل لا يعرف العالم لأنه لم يكن عالما
