salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
shala. Continuing with our series on the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Sierra to Libya. In the previous session, we were talking about the renovation of the Kaaba. And as we talked about last time, this occurred at the top in the majority of discourse, in the opinion of the majority of the scholars of Sierra, this, this occurred at the time,
when the Prophet of Allah salatu salam was 35 years old. So this occurred at the age of 35. In the life of the prophets, a lot a seller.
And at that point in time, who underwent a major project, a major renovation project of the Kaabah, acaba to sharifa.
And we talked about some of the details of it. We talked about why that renovation was occurring, aside from just wear and tear. There's a couple of other nations that tell us there was some flooding at that time. We also have some narrations telling us that there was also a break in at the GABA, somebody tried to loot the Kaaba. And because of all these circumstances, basically, they decided it was high time that they underwent a major renovation of the GABA. And we talked about some of the circumstances at that time, how there were some very miraculous events that took place some narrations tell us about some very miraculous things occurring at that time. And, you know, of
course, as is the question, a lot of times, as believers, we have no problem believing in that. But maybe sometimes somebody might not. Might be a little skeptical about some of those things. But, you know, that's an issue of faith. And that's an issue of human. And, you know, I was talking to a friend earlier today on the phone. And I told him, you know, we were just having a conversation and we were actually talking about, you know, he was mentioning the Sierra lectures. And so I what I told him was that if you've ever been to the Kaaba, if you ever been to Beit to LA, you've ever been to Mecca, you visited the Kaaba, you really have no problem in believing in what we talked about in
the previous session, because it is such an unbelievable place. It has such a profound effect on a person. When you are in the presence of the Kaaba, you're in all of that place and just of the, of the of the Godhead itself. This is beta luck. And so you really don't have a problem in believing in those things. So we talked about what happened. And the major outcome of those miraculous occurrences was that the primary major outcome was that the people of NACA realized that this, if they had if they had any doubts remaining, about the sanctity and the how special of a place that GABA is, they had no doubts remaining at this point in time. And so they came to the conclusion that
we need to go about the renovation of the GABA, very carefully, very cautiously. And at the same time, we also need to make sure that we are very respectful in the renovating of the GABA, we will do it respectfully little by little bit by bit, piece by piece. And we will also make sure that any and all resources we put into the renovation of the Kaaba, they will be of the purest of nature, meaning we're going to make sure that we don't put any type of you know money that has been earned wrongfully or in morally and ethically we will not be putting it or investing any such money or wealth into the Kaaba. So that was the primary conclusion that they came to.
Now they go about in the renovation of the GABA and we talked about last time how you know, there were some initial hesitation, they were very nervous because it was the GABA but exactly what happened at that time. And they you know, the one of them the very first one was, as we mentioned last time, last time
he took the very first step and you know, when when he was safe and everything was okay, then everybody else got motivated to do so and they figured, okay, inshallah everything should be okay. The next thing that we also talked about was how they started getting into a fight who's going to renovate the Kaaba and of course at that time again, they decided to distribute the the the areas of the GABA in amongst different tribes and families that okay, the parish will do this part, and they will do this part and they will do that part and they started renovating the Kaaba accordingly. I also mentioned that that time that the Kaaba, and this is something we're going to talk about in
more detail, but the capo originally before this renovation was about six or seven
meters high. And when they decided to renovate it, they decided to make it taller, they basically decided to double the length to about 16. And seminary should say 18 meters high. So they decided to go more than double the height of the original GABA. And the one the main reasons for this was because they wanted to move the door of the Kaaba up, they wanted to move the door of the Kaaba up, move it higher.
And the reason for that was so that not anybody could get inside and that anybody could enter into it. But you would basically have to get a ladder, and then you'd have to climb up it. And if somebody was going to go to all that lane, somebody who's going to actually need a ladder and things like that, you would see them doing so you'd be able to kind of catch them or see them. And nobody could basically sneak into the Cabo or enter into it undetected. So this is what they decided to do at this time. Now, obviously, to make the Kaaba taller and to make the building hire required more money, more resources, more raw materials. And in doing so, what they didn't end up realizing was,
they didn't have enough resources. Because remember, there was one primary restriction restriction was, we're only going to put the purest, you know cleanest of money and wealth into the renovation of the GABA, they ended up realizing they didn't have enough to actually finish the construction of the GABA.
They didn't have enough to finish the construction of the GABA. So when we think of the GABA today, we think of a square.
The original shape of the GABA was that it was straight on three sides. And on one side, it was oval.
It was extended, so it was more rectangular than it was square, it was extended off to one side a little bit extra. And that is basically what we know today as to how clean or what the profits a lot even referred to as a hedgerow as well, the extra room the extra area of the GABA, which is also known by the name of clean, all right, where there's a little half wall, there's a boundary. And that's why when we do to off one of the main things that your you know, your mom or your Sheriff or somebody whoever's giving you instruction on doing to offload, so you make sure you don't cut through there, you have to go around there. Otherwise, if you cut through there, it doesn't count.
Because the entire bait to load. That guy by itself is around the area of the Hatim. And that's why there's such a motivation to pray with inside that little area. And there's such a scramble to get in there and pray in there because praying and there is as if you have prayed inside the Kaaba. So when now that when they're doing this reconstruction, they realize they don't have enough material, they don't have enough funds to be able to include the huddle room into the GABA. So they were forced to leave it out. They were forced to leave it out and make it a little bit shorter and smaller than it was supposed to be. And what they did was they just took a few stones and a few
rocks. And they put it around that boundary to be able to mark that this is also part of the original Kaaba. But what are we going to do? This is the lack of resources. And that's what occurred at that time. Along with that, because they had a lack of resources. The beta law that GABA is capital sharifah. It originally used to have two doors. It originally used to have two doors, one on the east side and one on the west side, one on the east wall and one on the Western Wall. All right, the door of the GABA that we're used to today, and we'll test them and the door of the Kaaba that is on the eastern side. But there was also a door on the western side. And the reason for that was that
when people would visit the Kaaba and wanted the blessings at the Kaaba, the way they would do so is that they would enter from one door, and they would pray or do whatever they did in between, and then they would exit out the door on the west side. So it was created that way it was made that way two doors were put there to keep the flow of traffic going and turn to one side exit out the other side. And that way, there was a steady flow of traffic. But again, because of lack of resources, they were not able to put a door on the western side.
And they ended up just leaving it a straight wall. And also part of that was because they wanted to deter, they basically wanted to limit the access that people have to the Kaaba because of the break in. So this also serves that purpose. If there was only one door, there's one door to go in one door to get out one door to watch one door to guard and also another door is going to be 567 feet above the ground. Alright, so not everybody can even enter into it undetected. There whoever tries to go in there, everyone's going to know. So this is a little bit of detail as to what happened at that time. So the construction of the Kaaba was incomplete instead of two doors one door was put and it
was made taller and the doors moved higher.
Now they get to this point. Now what do you do at this particular point? So they finished they constructed the gabaa up till this point
Until the very last thing that was left was the placing of the the placing of the Alhaji aswhat into its proper place.
Now, at this point in time, the, you know, another fight broke out. All right, another fight broke out, by the way, all the fighting in the machine. Sounds familiar, doesn't it?
Right. Sorry, I couldn't help myself. All right, it was too easy was right there. All right. So.
So another fight broke out. And this time the the fight, or the argument was, who's going to put the 100th episode back into its place, obviously, they had enough of a caste or enough of a social hierarchy at that time, unfortunately, which is obviously incorrect or wrong, that enough of a caste system or social hierarchy at that time, to where whoever was going to be putting the Kaabah hazard lassoed back into its place on the Kaaba was going to be a leader of the tribe, but the fight was between the tribes as to who which tribes leader would be that individual that would get to put the GABA back into, put the Elijah last word back into its original place. So this little bit of a fight
started to break out, an argument started to happen, once again, you know, things deteriorated very quickly, very badly, you have to take, you know, the condition, the social circumstances of that time into consideration to understand the nature of these people. And so they started fighting amongst each other. And, you know, somebody's saying, No, he's gonna do it. They're saying, No, he's gonna do it. No, our tribe leader is gonna do it, no, your tribe leader not gonna do it. And they're all going out, and they're all fighting at it. They're all about to draw their swords. It's getting really messy at that time, abou Mejia Alito tip now, Abdullah, he was one of the elders of the
operation, he was one of the oldest men amongst operation. So he was very respected for his age and his wisdom, his seniority. So he says, everybody stopped everybody quiet, of course, out of some semblance of respect for an older gentleman. They all got quiet. And he's like,
Look, we're rebuilding, we're reconstructing we're renovating the house of God. And so why don't we leave this matter to God?
And they said, and he says, that will pray here, to the to the rub of the bait. We'll pray here now to the rub of the bait, that the next man that enters in through that door, and will pray from the rubber to the rub of the bait, that he may get a very special person, the next person to enter in through that door, but whoever it is, is going to be the person who will put the alleged last word, not necessarily two narrations one says that he will be the one to put it back into place. When narration says that he will be the intermediary, he will be the arbitrator, the mediator, and he's the one who's going to make the decision and selves matter for us as to who should be the one.
So they all figured they all said, Alright, we don't have any other solution. This is getting pretty bad here right now. So what's the harm? Let's go ahead and go with his suggestion. And everybody went ahead and agreed. And they said, this is acceptable to us. The next guy who walks through that door is going to be the one who makes the decision as to what we're going to do here and how we're going to handle this situation.
It said at that time that the next person to enter in and this door that was designated was the was the door, the gate of the caliber of Mazel haram at a time known as Babel, bunny shaybah. It was the door of bunu shaybah. And it said that the next the next person who entered into that door was none other than Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he walks in through that door to worship and to, you know, pay his daily respects at the Kaaba to worship to meditate to do whatever it is that you know, the prophet of Allah loves him will do at that time. So he walks in through that door. And it said, actually, that when the Prophet of Allah loves and walk through that door, there
was like a sigh of relief, when the narrations actually says that amongst a lot of the leaders, there was like an audible sigh of relief, and they were very relieved to see Mohammed Abdullah, walk through that door because he was somebody that everybody liked, everybody respected, and because according to the majority narration that they decided that the next person to walk through that door would be the mediator. They were very relieved that it was Mohammed Abdullah, because they knew him to be a man of great intelligence, a man of great honor and dignity and fairness. And they and it's also narrated that some of them said that, you know, that how perfect and how great this is, that
the person who walked through the door was a mean,
that by that time, he was literally no more people would identify and more people will know would know him and would refer to him as
I mean, then they would even by his own name
by his own name, right. So they're like, oh, man, you know,
how grateful How amazing is it that amine was the one to walk through the door. And so the profits or losses and walks in everybody sitting there looking at him big smile from here to here under face, he's probably wondering what's going on. Right? And so they tell the Messenger of Allah sallallahu sallam, that this is what's going on. We have this situation happening. This is the situation at hand. hygiene last what is the last thing that remains? And so we couldn't decide. So we decided next person to walk through the door will decide for us and you're that next person.
So the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
gave it some thought. And the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam said, Fine when narration says that he asked for a big shawl or sheets or something like that to be brought through, to be brought to him. When he says that he actually removed his own shawl that he had wrapped around his upper body, he removed his own shawl, because it was a hazardous word. And he put it down on the ground, he asked for the last word. And he placed it in the middle of the sheet of the shawl. And then he called for the leaders of all the different tribes to basically come up and hold a corner, hold the edge of the sheet, and altogether, everybody lifted up. And they all together lifted it up. It's a
very famous story. Most people have heard of it before. And it was and then they walked it over right next to the Kaaba all the way and brought it all the way up to the level of where the alleged last word would be placed. And then when it was right there, right sits right next to it, the Messenger of a loss allottee son with his own blessing, Hans took the very blessing alleged less wood into his hands, and he put it into its proper place, fit it into the proper place. Now, as I mentioned last time, that when we did the earlier sessions on the birth of the messengers, a lot of them, we talked about the couple of miraculous incidents that occurred prior to his birth, the
rediscovery of the well of Zamzam. We talked about the defeat the miraculous defeat of the army of the elephant's right, and we talked about how that was not just coincidence, nothing is coincidence, right? But that occurred, not just as a coincidence, but that occurred as a telling, as a forthcoming of the of a forthcoming sign of the birth of the Prophet of Allah salani Center. Similarly, this occurring a couple of years prior to the beginning to the initiation of the divine revelation, again, is not mere coincidence, but the Prophet of Allah ceylonese and first of all, the renovation of the Kaaba taking place, then the Prophet of Allah, Allah isn't playing such a pivotal
vital role in the renovation of the Kaaba, and then the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam being the individual who with his blessing hands, lifts the heads and less wood and puts it back into its proper place. Again, this is not mere coincidence. But this again, was by the Divine Decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala, to bring the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and his piety and his nobility and his honor and his dignity and his truthfulness and his trustworthiness to the center stage of his people. Why? Because he was very close to the beginning of the revelation, and of the message. And so this was to again, put the prophets a lot SLM in the spotlight, and to highlight above everything
else, the trust, and the honor and the dignity that he held amongst his people.
So that this is something that could not be denied from the prophets, alleles and later on, and as we see later on, they could say whatever they wanted to say, but they would always be stuck at one place. Whenever they tried to claim that you know, they could they could say whatever they wanted to say about the Prophet of Allah salon, he said them, but any and all claims that they would make about the prophets, Allah is him being untruthful, or the profits along some having a personal agenda, or the profits a lot. He said, I'm being malicious or ill willed in some way towards the people. That was something that absolutely, it was an argument that held no ground, because the
man's reputation and the man's presence amongst his people was well known. And they knew what he stood for. And they knew what, you know how he was viewed by his own people. Just a couple of years ago, he was the man who solved this problem. He was the same guy, who was who everybody was okay with taking the 100 last word in his own hands, and putting it into its proper place. And now a couple of years later, how are you going to tell me that he's a terrible human being? You can't claim that with a straight face. You can claim that and take yourself seriously. look yourself in the mirror, by trying to claim that he's a terrible human being you can't do that. Because he's the
same guy that you had no problem with handling the most sacred thing that you have. And so this was by the Divine Decree of Allah subhanaw taala. And this is basically that story in that incident of the renovation of the Kaaba. Now, as I mentioned last week, I wanted to finish off this
This story in the narration about the renovation of the Kaaba. But I also wanted to take this as an opportunity to because many of the books of Siva, such as even as half even a sham, even Kathy and many of the different scholars of Sita, they also use this opportunity they use this little chapter or this particular point of the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to discuss the overall history of the Kaaba. They use this as an opportunity to discuss the history of the garba. So I mentioned last time that we would similarly use this as an opportunity to do so.
Allah subhanho wa Taala and the Quran says about the Kaaba beta law in a world of aging will the alien Nazi levy be bacchetta Mubarak and wahoo danila alameen Fie is from beginner to macabre him and Allah who can Amina Allah subhanho wa Taala says that the very first house that was established for the people on the face of this earth was the house of Allah subhanaw taala in in Makkah, and mccutchen in mccutchan, mocha Rama and Allah subhanaw taala mentions a few qualities for for the Kaaba. Number one, he mentioned that mobile icon, it was a source of blessing. Number two Allah subhanaw taala mentioned who delila Allah mean that it was a source in a place of guidance for all
humanity. Second, thirdly, Allah subhanho wa Taala says fee is to be you know, there are some very clear evident signs there from amongst them is my family Brahim the crew has about the lamb, woman duckula who can Amina and number four Allah subhanaw taala says that whoever enters into it has attained safety and security. All right, so these are a few qualities that Allah mentions. And then Allah subhanaw taala tells us some of the rights of the Kaaba, the beta law upon us will in archaeology headjam Beatty, many SATA II civilian that upon you know for the sake of Allah obligated upon the people is to actually go and visit that house visit the GABA For whosoever is actually has
the ability to do so somebody who has the ability to capability financially and physically to visit the GABA make the pilgrimage should do so it's an obligation upon the people. So these are some of the rights of the GABA that are mentioned in sort of earlier imraan so the number three is 96 and 97. Similarly, in this a hadith in Bukhari Muslim is mentioned from Abu Dhabi Allahu anhu. That he says I asked, I said to the messenger of Allaah, messenger of Allah yeto, Sula, la au monsieur, then we'll do a one that which Massoud was established first, and the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam said Allah she did Hara the beta la de kabane, mccutchan, mocha Rama, Rama au then I asked which was
the next one. He said I'll Masood. Azhar does the house of God in Jerusalem elements you will absorb a tremendous pool to combine him I asked him how much time elapsed between the establishment of these two massage de su machines, or Barona Sonata, he said 40 years apart that they were established.
similarly, in this a hand the Prophet of Allah salatu salam is reported to have said in the huddle Bella, the Hare Rama hula who Yamaha la casa Maharaja will help that this place of land, the heart of the Kaaba debate to law, that this is a place of land that Allah sanctified and Allah made it very, very sacred and holy. The day that Allah created the heavens and the earth, for her on behalf of Mattila de la Yama, and it will remain sacred by the by the sacredness of Allah meaning it remains sacred by the sanction of God till the Day of Resurrection. So these are some of the narrations which talk about the sanctity, the sacredness of the beta law and when it was
established. Now when talking about when was the Kaaba first established. Now here there's a little bit of discussion. We know the Quranic what the Quran basically points to is where the other Pharaoh Ibrahim will cover a terminal bait. When Ibrahim raised the foundations from the bait from the house, he raised the foundation of the house what is married and his son is married also to pardon this. All right. So we know that however some of the scholars do point out that the language of the Quran is very interesting. It talks about raising the foundation raising the foundation of the GABA, which means that maybe the foundation was already in place. And based off of that some of the
scholars even as hot talks about this, even a sham talks about this he mom and bayhealth he has a lot of literature on this, that among bayhealth he brings certain narrations where he says For instance, from Abdullah bin Amma been asked about the Aloha numa he says cannon Bay to popular out of the bl face and he says that the that the Baitullah Cabo was established even before the creation of the earth by 2000 years. And he's and then he references Abdullah bin in the US. The Sahabi radi Allahu Allah. He actually references the IRS
Ron where he then I'll do that, then when the earth was spread out. So you again points of the language of the eye and saying that the language of the eye is very interesting. It talks about when the earth was stretched out was spread out. So it's almost as if something was in a place and then you stretch it and spread it from there. So he says that the beta law the Cabo was the originating point of the earth. And from there eight min data he Madden Madden. He says from the beta line, the Kaaba, the earth was completely pulled out and stretched out and so that was the originating point of the earth. However, many of the scholars say that majority of such narrations which talk about
the Kaaba and its origins, which goes way, way, far back before that creation of the heavens in the earth, the majority of them they say, are from the Iliad. They are narrations, about which the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam told us land also depot Allahu Khatib. They are from the scriptures of the people of the book that we got from before us. And the process I'm saying we don't fully attest to their truth. We don't confirm them, nor do we deny them. We don't confirm them, nor do we deny them. We say Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah knows best and we leave it at that. So similarly, this is the nature of some of these narrations. Another such narration again from
Abdullah bin amabilis. He says that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam said Botha hula who gibreel Isla de la Wa Wa for Colin alguma emiliani beighton that are lost power Tata sent the sense when Allah Allah subhanaw taala sent Julian Alison to Adam and Hawa and he gave them the instruction that build a house for me, like build a place of worship, for hatanaka mcbreen gibril. Alison actually told them this is where the Kaaba needs to be located. For Jana Adam. Yeah, Pharaoh, Wil Wheaton. kulu. So Adam Elise, I'm starting to digging up dirt in Hawaii, his wife said to me how was started actually kind of taking and moving the dirt over to the place. And they basically built the
Kaaba like this.
Until when they finally completed it, God that Islam told him that okay, this is good, this is fine. Then when they constructed the Kaaba, oh hello, which Allah in a twofer be he then Allah spirit, Allah commanded Adam Ali salam to actually do tell off of it.
And then he told to him he said to him, and 2010 nazwa will debate that you are the first of humanity and this is the first of that houses of God the first place of worship. Then he goes on to say so methanosarcina Quran. Then centuries past generations past, had the head Yahoo new, until new Halle Salam came and visited the Kaaba through Matanuska hotel room. Then centuries and generations past Hathout Rafa Ibrahim will ally them in who and then finally until but I'm Elisa Lam came and actually raised the foundation of it. And again, there's some skepticism among some of the scholars about the validity of some of these narrations. One other narration says that when other Mali Salaam
did the first Hodge meaning did the first off of it. Then he met the angels in the melodica. They said Burano, suku kya Adam, they basically you know how we congratulate him when we say headjam Abreu, right so they congratulate him said may god accept your worship Adam, Nakata, hygena tabula alpha Armin and then they said that we actually did did Hajj we did throw off of the Kaaba 2000 years before you. All right, a little bit of trash talk there. All right. So, but again, it goes on to say the same thing, though not all of the scholars, except some of these narrations, similarly are about to lose debate or the love and humor. Another Sahabi the student of IE Chateau de la one
ha says, Mammon nabin illa wapa huddle beta, that there was not a single Prophet, but he actually did have of debate. He actually visited the Kaaba. All right, what the nature of that exactly is Allahu Allah Allah Musab again Allah knows best.
So these are some of the narrations.
Allah Vitaly radi Allahu anhu he was asked Salah Raja una de amor de Allahu anhu. And bolita Allah, in our debate, will the alumnus somebody asked earlier the Allahu anhu about this idea that the very first house that was established was the Kaaba, he's and then the person asked him open herbatint booni and so the person was taking a little bit literally he said, was this the first house generally speaking, like the first house ever built on the face of the earth? He said lakita who opened debating will do I feel Baraka will Huda macabre him. That woman de la who can Amina he says that no, but this is the first house that Baraka and blessing and guidance and signs of God were put
into. Alright, so he says no, it's the first place of worship that was established on the face of the earth. And some say that know what the questioner meant by asking a leader the Allahu anhu was, was this the first place of worship and Alito, the loved one
is taking the other opinion, not the minority opinion that I've shared with you that it was established from the time of other malayalam. Brother Alito, the loved one was taking a minority opinion, the minority, the majority position, and he said, No, no, no, there were other massages. There were other houses of worship that were established prior to the GABA. But this was very special because Baraka blessing the signs of God, my family, Brahim, the station of Ibrahim, whoever entered into it was safe and secure. All of this is what was special about the Kaaba. All these factors came together in the Kaaba, first and foremost. And that is what gives the Kaaba its
this is a little bit about the GABA before the time of the Prophet of Allah Salatu. Salam, It then goes on to say that
it talks about this narration of the loved one who talks a little bit about when Ibrahim Ali Salaam is constructing the Kaaba with his son is married alayhis salam. So it talks about how they build the Kaaba. And for Lama Hata Isabella McConnell hijab until they finally reached a place where the huddle is what goes the black stone, the hijab, that's where it goes. They reach that point because when they were given the instruction on how to build the Kaaba, they were told by a law that lead, create some create like a little place like a little recess where a stone can fit. So they created it, so they created the place the recess for the the alleged last word, but he didn't know he was
the Alhaji last word they were just told. This is part of the design of the Kaaba that needs to have that place for the black stone or for a stone. So when they finally reached that place, Ibraheem alehissalaam says who is married, that
that go and find me and stone that I can put in its place? Going Find me a stone that I that we can put here because in the design that we were told the instructions, we were told, a stone needs to fit here, fell tamasa Hassan says mine, Alison goes and finds a stone that fits the size of the recess hat that will be he and he brings it to him for what it drew Kiba.
So then he comes back and he sees that the Alhaji last word is already there in that little spot. And it's fine as long as Roger stone to put it in and sees the Alhaji last word there. So he says to his father Min indelicato
says Where did you find this Oh, father. So Ibrahim Ali Salam says that Jabba hegi believe mina samartha at Emma, who that jabril alehissalaam brought this from the sky and he completed the construction of the Kaaba for us. He brought this from the sky as a gift and he placed it here in its proper place in its proper spot.
It goes on to say for Murali had done. A long time passed after Ibrahim Ali Salaam fund had ama and the GABA started to crumble, started to deteriorate and started to fall down for banette hola Malika. So another people who later inhabited the area and the region, the family, they reconstructed, renovated the Kaaba and made it proper again. Someone had Mr. Fabiana, to drill home, then again after many centuries passing and started to crumble and fall apart again. And the people of Judah home, who was another race and a tribe of people that live there, they basically reconstructed it through Manhattan and then it again started to fall apart for Bennett to flourish.
And then the Quraysh were the next people to create to do a major renovation of the Kaaba. And that was, of course, with the involvement from the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam
excuse me and the Prophet of Allah, Allah took part in that renovation of the Kaaba. So this brings us to what we've discussed so far, to the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. Now to talk a little bit about the, the post, you know, the after the Prophet of Allah salatu salam,
to talk about that period of the history of the Kaaba, and what exactly transpired and what occurred at that time, after the Prophet of Allah salatu salam. So it said that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam informed the Sahaba it's actually a narration of our Isha rhodiola
in which he says that during fatigue mcca when they,
you know, cleaned out the Kaaba basically, and they they purified it and they started establishing the Salah and their prayer, and the proper form of worship there at the Kaaba, that the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam told her about the original construction of the Kaaba. So the prophets, a lot of the some shared with her what the Kaaba originally used to look like, and what was the shape and what was the construction of the Kaaba originally. And so among some of the things that he told her was that it used to have two doors. And the fact that the Hatim, which is now outside of the actual construction of the Cabo was originally a part was included within the structure and the
construction of the Kaaba and he told her some of this stuff and
He says lm ta n Oppo maka and this is a hadith that is both in Bukhari and Muslim. He says Allah and Nepal Maki pasar una vaca. He says he tells her what the Kaaba should have been like should have had two doors and should have included the Hatim. And then he says, But realize and understand that your people because she's from Malaysia as well so he goes your people, they didn't have enough funds to do the construction of the Kaaba fully and properly and that's why you find it in a slightly different shape and form today. And then he tells us something very interesting. He says well Ola hit van home Miki be cofrin, la Karnataka, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba ba ba ba and what are the health what
how to feel.
And then he says that if your people weren't sold, you know, new in Islam. That's one way to translate it, meaning he was saying that if they hadn't been in coup for So recently, meaning they weren't such new convert such recent converts to Islam.
And what that means is that they haven't really had time to learn and understand and kind of change a lot of their different, you know, perceptions and some of their ideas, they haven't been able to fully come around yet. And it would be too drastic would be too sudden amount of a move, it would actually have a traumatizing effect on your people. So if it wasn't too traumatic for your people, he says there are a Chateau de la Mancha. He says I would have actually done a complete reconstruction of the Kaaba. The prophets awesome says that Fatima, I would have done a complete reconstruction of the GABA and I would create an Eastern door and a Western door for the GABA. And I
would once again include the Hatim into the construction of the Kaaba. So the prophets a lot of them said this fissa hain This is what the * Ali mentioned in Bukhari and Muslim. Now, of course, you know, I shall a Mumsy is here, so I feel, you know, unqualified saying this in with him here, but just as an observation that the scholars make, based off of this narration of the prophets, a lot of them because one of the things when talking about the CETA, that we've, you know, kept a regular habit in a practice of is that whenever we talk about these incidents and occasions from the Sierra, we don't just talk about the story, but we try to extract some of the lessons and we take out some
of the points that the scholars use to establish some of the fundamentals the principles of our religion and our Deen. One of the principles that is extracted from this particular point is that sensitivity to a people and their customs and their traditions and their culture, and where they're coming from. And keeping in mind, where they're coming from, and what type of a transformation they're going through is very, very important. And it's actually part of this and nine, a part of the theater, that you're supposed to be sensitive to people's situations. That doesn't mean we compromise a religion, it doesn't mean that we change the ruling within the religion. But at times,
if something is not absolutely fundamental, fundamentally a core part of the deen and a religion, then we need to be sensitive to people's situations. This is one of the things that you know, a lot of times growing up and knowing you know, I have one of my best friends a really, really good near dear friend of mine, he actually accepted Islam when we were in middle school together, and we grew up together. And so this is something that I saw him personally go through. Because back, you know, then there was
sometimes a lot less sensitivity there was a lot less, you know, sensitivity towards you know, the situation of somebody who's just learning their Deen and is new to the dean and still trying to acquaint themselves with everything that's going on within the dean from you know, changing of name to No no, no, you can only pray in Arabic, but I don't know Arabic yet. And you can only read the prayer stuff in Arabic, but I don't know any Arabic yet. Okay, but you can only pray in Arabic. So do I now pray until then what do I do? And so there was even a time in a phase I remember and I was a kid myself, so I didn't have the ability to be able to help him out in any way. But I remember him
being literally being confused honestly, sincerely, to him born Muslim. This sounds preposterous. It sounds silly. We have to understand to some people, this is a reality for them, where he wasn't sure if he should even prayer not took Islam accepted Islam took the Shahada a not sure if you should pray, you're not getting to know Arabic. Right? So there's so many different things that sometimes we're not sensitive to about people in their situation, their circumstances. So the scholars use this hadith and this instance, from the life of the prophets, a lot of Islam, that the process of is clearly telling, he shot, somebody that he knows, can can grasp the situation a shadow, the lohana
was a genius. All right, she was a faqeer mafia, right? So he's actually explaining attorney saying, look, this is the way that GABA was. This is the way the Kaaba should be, and this is what I'd like to do, but I can't do it because your people won't be able to handle it. So I'm gonna leave it be and the Profit System didn't make those changes to the GABA at that time. So very interesting perspective from the seat of the profit side.
Now what happens afterwards is Abdullah bin Zubaydah the Allahu Allah, who later on was, you know in charge of Makkah used the misool of Mecca, right the mayor of Mecca if you will.
When he was the mayor of MCI he knowing because Abdullah Abdullah bin Zubaydah, the Allahumma, one of his main teachers was Archie Chateau de la Juana is odd. So knowing this from his art and his teacher, I shot all the love I mean, he decided to fulfill that, you know that to basically carry out that what the promises are made expressed, and he did a complete reconstruction renovation of the Kaaba. And what he did was he made two doors and two gates for it, he included the huddling into the construction of the Goblin completely redid the Kaaba. What happened after that was, when Marwan bin Abdul Malik, you know, who was basically in a fight or I'm sorry, hi, Jasmine Yousuf, who was in
a fight with Abdullah bin Zubaydah on behalf of the king, the halifa. That time, Abdul Malik bin Marwan he defeats Abdullah bin Zubaydah and actually Abdullah bin Roberto De La Hoya Anima was killed. He was shahidi was martyr, and then he reclaimed control of the Kaaba of Mecca. He actually writes back to the King Abdullah Malik bin Marwan, and says that I've regained control of the Kaaba and of Makkah and Abdullah bin Jubail, even Zubaydah had made these these changes. Would you like me to make the changes back? And I've done Malik says, Yes, not knowing full knowledge that Abdullah obeyed, was only doing that which he learned from Ayesha when she was told by the prophet of Allah
salatu salam. So not knowing that they figured this was Abdullah Jabez doing something crazy at the Kaaba, because they didn't get along. So they didn't, I guess have a lot of hustle along with each other. I mean, after all, they had killed the guy. So he says, Yeah, go ahead and redo the Kaaba the way it's supposed to be the way it was.
So now they reconstruct the entire cabinet. They bring everything down, they put it back up, they bought up the other door on the western side, as again, one door on the eastern side. They removed the Hatim from the original concert, the gabaa put the little border back around it completely redo it
years later, when the king or the halifa at that time was a monsoon. All right. He actually consults with Mr. Malik, Mr. Medina and his rod the alum of Medina, Mr. Malik, he consults with him and he says that, you know, we've now come to realize that there's this this this Hadeeth in place, and that the process I'm actually expressed that that's what he would have liked to have done with GABA, but he didn't. And Abdullah Abdullah bin Zubaydah done exactly what the process had expressed. But then additionally, bin Moran came along and had judge came along and redid everything.
So now that we know that that Hadith is in place, you're the Imam. You're the big chef. You're the Grand Mufti, you're the scholar. If you tell me that, you think that we should reconstruct the Kaaba in the way that the Prophet says on that expressed, I can have it done. And we got the funds. We got the people, we got what we need. I can do it. I just need to work from you. I need the fatwa from you. Mr. Malik Rahim, Allah at that time, told the king he told him in the Accra who and yet the hell Maluku mala button. He said, Don't leave it be
because the processor left it. That obviously shows that that was also okay with the Messenger of Allah syllogism. He says, leave it be because I don't want kings to come along later on and turn the carbon into a toy. I don't want kings to be territorial about the Kaaba, that later on. Another King comes along and he says no, I didn't like this king. So now I'm going to go back and redo it again. And now the king comes along. Say I'm going to show you what's up and I'm going to redo the GABA. And actually, you know, this is going on non stop. So he says, leave it be leave it alone is the house of God, for God's sake, leave it alone. All right, don't mess around with it. Don't play
around with it and leave it. All right. The Messenger of Allah loves and left it there was a divine wisdom and a prophetic achema. In that leave it be. And so then the Cabo was left according to that until today. The beta loved the Kaaba. It has one door until today the Hatim is not included within the actual construction, the enclosure of the Kaaba itself, but that little border remains around it. And that has been left like that till today. All right, some more details about the cabin, its expansion and some of what we see today. You know, today we see that one thing that is a tradition at the Kaaba is to put the cloth over the goblet, the covering of the Kaaba, the kiswa of the Kaaba
is a big tradition, and it's a big deal, right? When did that start? When did that first happened the first one very interestingly, the first one to actually put the kiswa the cover on the garba and start that tradition was none other than hydrogen.
yussuf All right. We don't have a lot of time to talk about this here. Maybe we'll talk about it some other time. But hi gentlemen, Yousef is typically known to be a pretty terrible guy. All right. He was he was basically he's been described in books of history to be a mass murder. You know, his the amount of people he executed and killed or ordered to be executed and killed, ranges up into the hundreds, possibly even the 1000s. There were new multiple Sahaba you know, or rather a couple of Sahaba that he actually had a hand in killing, like Abdullah bin Zubaydah, the Allahu anhu Ma, you know, some of the great scholars of tuttavia own likes or even Ubaid.
You know, Rahim Allah, you know, he did he in front of him directly had them executed directly in front of him. So he's typically known to be a pretty bad person, like he done a lot of terrible things but goes to show you, you know, you never know what somebody you know is capable of or what somebody could bring to the table. Hi, Jasmine Yusuf was the first one to actually you know, formally have a covering of the GABA made and that has remained a tradition in the Muslim oma till today. And that's one of the ways through which we show respect to the Baitullah to the carrabba Shetty from
similarly, some of the books of history also tell us about the expansion of the Mazel haram as we see it today. That the first one to actually expand. The Muslim haraam was Ramadan. mahatama, the Allahu anhu he was the first one. So the masjid now that's all around the garba. The first one to actually start expanding that machine to accommodate the growing oma that was coming for hygiene I'm trying to worship I think about the first one to accommodate them was none other than honorable Katara De La Hoya. I know he basically all the houses that were immediately around the Kaaba, he bought them from their owners, compensated them very, very properly very well above and beyond what
their property was worth, so that he could expand the area of the machine around the Kaaba and accommodate all the Hajaj and all the worshipers and then later on, at the time of Abdullah Earth man or the loved one who actually then purchased more homes and expanded the Kaaba even further out. And then even Zubaydah, the Aloha, I'm Houma.
He, when he had that whole reconstruction of the Kaaba done, he had a lot of, you know, different decorations, and he had a lot of very ornate things put on and around the Kaaba. So even when we go there today, and we see very, very nice beautiful construction, and we see elaborate decorating of the Kaaba. And again, that's something that the Sahaba of the Allahu anhu did do. And they saw it as a sign of respect, and there's nothing wrong with it in and of itself. All right, there is this much that, you know, the prophet of Allah selection did talk about how when people will simply adorn something, but not actually get the point of it. Like the process, I'm talking about people who will
very beautifully recite the Quran, but it won't have any impact on their hearts, it won't change their lives. So there is that much that we there's always a balance and the Sahaba or the aluminum didn't have to worry about that balance because they were the Sahaba the loved one, they were exemplary people. So when they beautified the Kaaba a little bit they beautified the Kaaba a little bit, but their worship and their dedication and devotion to a law and their worship at the Kaaba was a very high quality. All right, so their decorations were far behind their actual dedication, their decoration was far less than their dedication. Whereas today, it's a lot in the reverse. We have a
lot more decoration that we do dedication. And so definitely, it requires us to exert ourselves and try to implement more, you know, dedication, issue in our salon a badass and attendance of the masjid. That should be a goal. But just as a rule as an issue of fick as a must Allah as a rule, it is there's nothing wrong or inappropriate or harm in any way, shape or form about decorating in creating a big, nice beautiful Masjid. Why? Because it's something that the companions of the Prophet ceylonese and the Sahaba or the local Imam engaged in, they did this they expanded the machine they beautified the machine, and they do the deen a lot better than we do. So we take that
from their action as a fatwa that it is permissible and all the Sahaba that were alive at that time, had no issue had no problem and had no qualms or complaints with it.
So inshallah we'll go ahead and stop here for this week's session and next week we'll pick up and continue on from here in Sharla.
