salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuhu hamdulillah. It's a great blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala that Allah has given me the opportunity to be able to go with the hajjaj and be a part of the Kalam Hodge group this year in sha Allah in 2020. As I was preparing for HUD and talking to people about it, I became aware of a lot of concerns that people had people were very apprehensive about the idea of going for HUD for a number of different reasons. And they were very interesting and very fascinating. One of the common ideas that I came across was that people were concerned and worried that I'm not religious enough to go for Hajj, I'm not, I'm not in a spiritually good enough place to
be able to perform the Hajj. And to that what I explained to those people and to those folks was that Hajj is a part of improving yourself, HUD see college as a part of getting to where you want to be. But if you keep waiting to be in that perfect place before you go for Hajj, what's a really scary idea is that you might just keep on waiting and waiting and waiting, and never really actually get to that place. Because you've kind of idealized it, versus seeing Hodge as part of your spiritual journey of coming closer to a law, then that's a lot more empowering. And every single time I've seen it so many times, over and over again, that hij ends up being such a pivotal moment,
such a turning point in a person's life, that they are completely different people pre hugs and postage. So you if you go into it with that mindset, not only will you feel encouraged to go for Hajj, but undoubtedly hug in shock insha Allah will be for you that turning points that will help you become the best version of yourself in sha Allah tala
