continuing with our study of the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a sila tin nobilia, the prophetic biography
we've been talking for quite a few sessions now about Hydra to be down the farewell pilgrimage of the Prophet salallahu, alayhi wasallam. The Hajj the prophets a lot is performed, and the 10th year of hatred towards the end of his life. Now, at some level, we've been going on for quite some time, and anybody who's been keeping up with the sessions understands this, that, you know, normally we would think, or maybe we've heard, or read even a book on the CETA. And we've seen that there's a chapter on how to deal with and there'll be a couple of pages, where we heard a 20 minute lecture, we've been going on for a number of weeks now. You know, half a dozen hours, we've already been,
we've invested into talking about it. But that goes to tell you exactly how much detail we have about the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and also how much profound benefit there is to take from it. So in sha Allah, it's really, you know, a blessing of Allah subhanaw taala that we have such a phenomenal resource available to us. So we'll continue with that. where we left off previously was the profits a lot. He said, you know, observed the day of alpha he made throughout the place of artifacts. He spent the night it was really fun. They came back to minack in the morning, where they, after they came back after the federal prayer to Mina, where they went and they
tossed the pebbles at the largest of the pillars, the biggest of the shade bombs as people refer to the through they tossed the pebbles there. And after that point, now it was time to observe the other elements of Yeoman, not the 10th day of the hedger for anyone who is not at Hutch, generally normal for the rest of us. During normal times, the 10th day of the hedgehog is the day that we know as each other how they're either the sacrifice, all right. But for people who are at hij, the 10th day of the hijab is called younger now, and that means also sacrifice, but it's giving it a little bit of a different name so that it's more uniquely identifiable. The word that is specifically the
method that is used for sacrificing camels. It's the method that is used for sacrificing camels. I won't go into all the gory details, but nevertheless, it is a very unique experience. Forget about doing it even seeing it is quite a unique experience. And you know, so at your at your own peril and at your own risk. Feel free to YouTube it but uh nevertheless, hamdulillah I've had the opportunity to perform it not only see it, but that's the way camels are sacrificed. So that's why it's called human now and we'll talk more about why he got that name. First of all the profits will be some referred to it with that name, but why even he referred to it with that name we'll see in just a
Going back to the lengthy narration on Hutchinson riddle narrated by the young Ansari companion jab between Abdullah the Lakota and who he says someone sort of an alien man Ha. So see on the 10th day of the hedger after you throw the pebbles at the largest of the pillars. The second thing you're supposed to do in sequences, you sacrifice your animal and anyone who has come for Hajj and come for Hajj from outside. They came from pipes from outside, they're not from the hottest territories. They came in from outside the word that's used and fifth for that is
it alright, so somebody who's coming to perform hides from outside, they perform either what's called hydrocodone or hijama, which means you do an ombre and you do a Hutch. And in order to appreciate that blessing of Allah that you were able to do two things in one journey, fulfill two rituals.
One journey, a sacrifice is offered but of course only for those who can afford it. Those who cannot afford it, they have too fast the number of days in the Quran talks about that. Nevertheless, a sacrifice is typically made and after throwing the pebbles The second thing in sequence that is done is the sacrifice. So human sacrifice element half the profits lobby selam he went to the place where the sacrifice they were sacrificing the animals where everyone had gathered all the animals together.
And then for now, hora de la Tomasi Tina bat, remember the I live in a Vitaly part of the Allahu taala Han who, from a lot of the spoils of war in Yemen, and some of the other offerings and the gifts that were given by the people, the prophets a lot. He said, I've had 100 camels that were sacrificed at that occasion to celebrate how to do that and also to provide meat and food to everybody who was there at the hedge. Right. So 100 camels were sacrifice
the profits a lot in some sacrificed 63 of them with his own hand. Like the initial cut, that doesn't mean like all the butchering and skinning and cutting up of the meat not all that but just the initial sacrifice that was made with the dagger because not the camel is basically killed with a dagger not a knife. But the profits a lot, he said and performed that act 60 on 63 of the camels that were done, to our body and by the Lakota on who for now. huruma
Guevara, Ashoka houfy Howdy. And then after doing 63 animals, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then handed the dagger to the Allahu taala. And who and he said, Why don't you finish up what is left? All right, and that way, the prophets are included on either the Rakuten, who, within this particular noble deed as well, was one of the scholars mentioned something. And again, there's no real evidence that that is why the prophets a lot he sort of did this. But you know, how you look for some times like interesting tidbits, you look for something that is an interesting note, a note of interest. Some of the scholars have noted, the profits along the zone stopped at sacrificing 63
animals. And that was his age at that time. That was his age at that time. So we'll look into whether that was, you know, his objective or purpose not Nevertheless, we know that. And it's a very interesting, you know, kind of like note to take.
And we do know that the prophets allottee seven was a fan with the prophets a lot. He said him was fond, excuse me, the profits of autism was fond of symmetry. The profits lobbyism was fond of symmetry. He liked seeing symmetry and things because symmetry, another word for something that is very symmetrical, or some symmetry is when you see something that's very symmetrical, what do we call it we say it's very,
is beautiful. When we see something symmetrical, we say it's beautiful, and what did the prophets a lot tell us about beauty in the larger meilan your
God is beautiful and he loves beauty. So the prophets a lot he was very fond of symmetry in the social things. So luckily tell Adam whether that was his objective or purpose or not. Nevertheless, it is still something of note. Imam Ahmed mentions that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after doing the sacrifice
the next deed the next act that is basically performed in the sequence of the Hodge Anya monado is that the hair the hair is cut and I'll explain that in a little bit more detail the hair is cut and but obviously after sacrificing the animals because that was all being done in one place so you didn't create a mess everywhere. It was now time for people to basically set up camp where they could then cut their hair and clean themselves take their showers to change your clothes so on and so forth. So it was now time for people to settle in the profits a lot isn't gathered everyone he explained everything to everyone what they needed to do next hop on the profit salon and explain to
them what were the following steps and then the profits a lot of them actually you know allocated space for different people. The Ottoman abuse A lot can be run out when as a home and as you know makalah Leon zil, Alamo Haji Runa Hakuna, he said Mahajan should set up camp over here. What Sha? Allah mingma till Qibla he's pointed to the right direction of the fibula, while unsought Hakuna Shara
the Ansari constructor camps over here through Malayan Zeeland, nahezu how level and then everyone else should set up somewhere around them. And there's a note in that the profits allottee subsyndromal. How'd you do in here? The unsought over here and everybody else, find the spot
When you do that, you're basically highlighting someone, you're honoring someone. You know, it's like if I said, Holly, why don't you please come have a seat here. And everybody else Grab a seat, please. I highlighted on it. So either, you know, I'm honoring him or he's in trouble either what right? Depends, right? If it's my son, he's in trouble. He's not here today. So don't worry. But, you know, otherwise, it's a way to honor somebody. It's a way to highlight someone. And the profits a lot. Nice. I'm honored to Mahajan in the inside in front of everyone.
And the reason why he did that was these were the people who invested in Islam early on, so to speak. They got in on the ground floor was Sofia, Luna, Luna, Meena Mahajan, Lena valenza. Well, the thing that
we can also gain virtue by following in their footsteps by finding inspiration within them. But it doesn't change the fact that you know what, they made that initial sacrifice. And there's something to be said about that.
And then the province alone isn't told everyone else what to do next.
And then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he now proceeded himself to basically the cutting of the hair. Now, the two things that I'd like to mention here is first of all, the profits a lot he solo, cutting his own hair. How did that exactly go? What was the hair? How did he cut his hair? And how was that exactly done? And then what did he say at that time when it was time for everyone to cut their hair? So Mohammed mentions that the profits in there's a number of narrations among Bahati mentions his humaneness IE mentions is everyone mentions is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at 100 WIDA. He shaved his head, he shaved his head. He did not cut his hair, he shaved his
head. And it also mentioned Abdullah bin or the Allahu taala anumana habito. Hadith says that the majority of the companions of the prophets and the men of course, they also shaved their heads with cassava do some people, they cut their hair. They didn't completely shave their heads.
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
how did he have his own haircut in my Muslim Aram Allahu taala, he has a narration in the sahid narrated by nsmen Malik or the Allahu taala angle, in which he says that the prophets a lot, he said, um, he went to the biggest of the pillars, he threw the pebbles, he then went and offered the sacrifice, then the prophets, a lot of them sat down, and he called someone he said, Come shake my head. And then the prophets a lot he said on and this is something interesting. The prophets, alabi, some had long hair at this time, the prophet SAW lovely, someone had long hair. So the way the prophets a lot is that we used to wear his hair, kind of comb his hair, or whatever you want to call
it. The way he used to keep his hair was that the profits along the Silk would basically push it back, he would push it back, and oftentimes, because the profits a lot of a sudden would tie a turban on his head. So that kind of helps kind of push your hair back a little bit. And so the profits, a lot of them would push his hair back. And that's how he would keep his hair and the profits a lot. He was fond of long hair. He typically in his lifetime, aside from when he shaved his head at the four times, which was the three cameras and then the Hutch. Aside from those moments, he typically have longer hair, it would be anywhere from his ear lobe. So when you would push it back,
you would come to his ear lobe. And sometimes it would come get to his neck. And if he was traveling, like he was on a journey, a long journey like the journey of Luke, it would sometimes get so long where it would go all the way to his shoulders, and the process of that very wavy hair. So when it would get longer in the back, it would curl up in the back of his head to here it would curl up. And so the profits a lot of them typically at that longer kind of hair. So when he called the person to shave his head, he kind of grabbed his hair from the right side here. And then he said what he said start over here, grabbed his hair on the right side here and he said start over here.
And so the person started shaving his head from the right side. Then the profits a lot he said he grabbed his hair on the left side and he said hood, he pointed to the left take this now and then the person shaved his head from the left side as well.
and then after the profits a lot of his own books, shy aside to his head were shade basically they kind of you know, finish it off, cleaned it off. And that was how the profits a lot of them basically shaved his head had his own head shaved and then the profits
other people to do the same as well.
One last detail that I mentioned about the haircut this profits a lot asylums hadn't been shaved. Before I go on to talk about just the sum of the two eyes that he made and what he said about this particular moment was Imam Ahmed mentions in his Muslim narrated by anessa the Allahu taala on who he says brought into Rasul Allah He solavei selama when hanok Yakubu, he says I saw the Prophet sallallahu Sallam sitting and then the person who was shaving his head was standing behind him shaving his head, but further up off of he was hugging. All the Sahaba gathered around the profits a lot. He said, Oh, my God, do not and Taka Asha Rani lafiya de la Julian, not a single one of his
hair and he had long hair, not a single one of these hairs touched the ground. Everybody was catching his hair as he was shaving his head and he was falling. Everyone was catching the hair and keeping it basically, as a souvenir as a safe keep. And as is the understanding of the vast overwhelming majority of Muslim scholars for as a source of Baraka as well as rupee, Arthur in the visa lottery setup. Right? whether or not somebody seeks blessing from another person that is disputed, and I'm not going to touch on that. But one thing that people have knowledge, I don't care what anybody says on the internet, people have knowledge they all agree upon because the companions
all practice this, the Sahaba practice this, the elevate practice this, the mothers of the believers practice this, and that is the personal effects of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam are a source of blessing. He is blessing. He Rahmatullah me. He receives divine revelation.
He says, Would you believe? Right? So the prophets a lot is from his blessing. And his personal effects are a source of blessing. And Saba used to keep these kinds of safe keeps for its source of blessing from the prophets a lot. So that way, it's very beautiful. They were all basically grabbing the hair as it was falling and they were keeping it for themselves.
Now, what did the profits overall say at this particular time, Mr. Muslim, along with a number of different variations, he mentioned that
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he, Abdullah bin Machado, the Allahu taala, who says that the prophets a lot after getting his head shaved, and everyone saw that He then said, Everyone gets your head shaved, and he said, your homolog? Would Mahalia clean?
And everyone said, I've been meaning that may Allah have mercy upon those who shave their heads today. And I said, I'll be. And then again, he said, Your beloved Mahalia thing, and everyone said, I mean,
and then, after two or three times he made
for people who were shaving their heads. Some people who were interested in getting a haircut, not shaving their heads, they asked what am quasilinear?
But what about the people who get a haircut? And he said, Well, who can save him? He said them as well. Sure, why not? Right. So he kind of mentioned it on the side like that one time, but he made two or three times for the men who shaved their heads after performing hajj in another hadith of Sahih Muslim as well. He explicitly mentions that
there are little Mohali Athena Salah syrena merata. The profits a lot of these are made to offer the men who shaved their heads that hunch three times and you make to offer those who get who get a haircut one time. All right. So just something to keep in mind. sha Allah May Allah take us all 400 but whenever you do go
you can get a haircut Just don't let me see you getting a haircut because I will tease you. All right. The next thing that after everyone cut their hair, the profits a lot he said I'm then instructed the companions. He said that now you can put on regular clothes because remember, they're in your home. They've been around for more than two days from the eighth or the eighth or the ninth. And this is the morning of the 10th so now he said now you can change your clothes. Now you can remove your home now you can put on regular whatever, you know civilian clothing so to speak. Alright, you can wear whatever you want to wear. And you can clean yourself up you can take a
shower, you can apply some perfume in our case, you know you can use your soap and shampoo you can you know put on some deodorant or some ATAR or cologne or perfume or whatever you can do all of that.
The only restriction that still remains in the profits a lot is clarified. This is however if a man and a woman a wife and a husband
If a husband and wife are on Hajj together, they should not be intimate yet.
They cannot resume intimacy yet, and that's a physical issue. So I'll leave that for another, you know forum.
inshallah the Allahu taala says that after the prophets, a lot of stuff was done with all of this, He then took a bath, he washed himself and he put on some regular clothes. And then he asked the eyeshadow, the Allahu talana, his wife, the mother of the believers, he asked her, do we have any perfume? And she said, Yes. And he said, Bring me the perfume, and I shadow the left, which says, I rub the perfume in my hands. And I applied it to the profits lobbies.
I applied into the process. I mean, that shows us that it is absolutely allowed at this particular juncture. After the lapel, the pebbles have been tossed, the sacrifices you've made, and the hair has been cut. Now somebody can resume back to normal, kind of like dress and behavior and the profits a lot. He said, it's even described kind of the perfume that he had the profits a lot he said
he was so fond the profits of some one of his very amazing qualities was that the profits a lot of the sun was very particular, about hygiene, about cleanliness, about always being presentable.
And that doesn't mean luxurious or extravagant. But he was always very presentable. The profits he loves him took a lot of pride in being clean and dressed cleanly and smelling nice. And having his hair combed and his beard combed and the process and was very particular about these things. Because you're supposed to carry yourself with that type of dignity.
And so I bass,
radi Allahu taala on who he actually even says He notes that or excuse me, Abdullah bin Arbus, his son, Abdullah bin Abdullah says, I saw that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam took some type of perfu that was almost kind of like a cream. And he put it in his hair. And he rubbed it into his hair. And then he combed his hair with that in his hair, kind of like almost putting some type of cream or gel or something that smelled nice. Right. So that's how particular the profits a lump sum was about being nice and clean and presentable.
After this, the profits a lot a send them then said, Now everyone there in Mena,
everyone's done what they supposed to do. And at this time before going forward, one other thing I wanted to mention was, some people came to the profits a lot. He said, I'm at that particular time at that juncture. And they had some questions. And I talked about this previously, I alluded to this, but I wanted to reiterate it here. Some people came to the profits, a lot of these women they said O Messenger of Allah, I cut my hair.
Before I made the sacrifice.
I cut my hair before I made the sacrifice. What should I do now? The product should I now make my sacrifice now even though I've already cut my hair, the profits a lot. Nizam said if
he said do it, and it's no problem. Do it? There's no problem. That's okay. And that again, kind of goes back to what I had emphasized earlier about the accommodating nature of the profits a lot. And overall, the accommodating nature of our religion. If somebody deliberately does it wrong, that's disrespectful. But if somebody had knowingly, accidentally or it's even outside of someone's control, right like when you go for lunch now and there's like millions and millions of people and aren't really sure is your haircut? Is your is your sacrifice happening before your haircut or vice versa? The profits allow the seller, the religion of Islam, our Lord Almighty Allah subhana wa tada
has created room for us.
Right has created room for us. It's practical. Our religion is extremely practical. And I talked about this earlier that when we skew things one way or the other, we create a problem. If we become too lacks where we don't respect anything, somebody deliberately does it out of order.
90 don't even respect the law. That's a problem.
You will lose the haibo the respect of the religion and have a law.
But if you skewed things too much to the other side, where it becomes so rigid and so strict, you will break people.
You will break people and the profits a lot of them told us not to do that work with them more Yes, ceding the level assuming the profits a lot of a sudden
said you were sent to facilitate Islam for people not to make it an obstruction.
But shiru will not interfere. facilitate things congratulate encourage, motivate, inspire uplift people. Don't chase them away and bring them Yes.
Facilities facilitate things don't do Don't try to make things more difficult. Allah says in the Quran Ma and Santa Monica Khurana the
we did not send down the Quran upon you, to make your life difficult to ruin your life to make you miserable. That's not why the Quran was at its mercy. It's a guidance, it's a blessing. And so we have to remember that at times.
Now, after this,
the prophets a lot of them gathered the companions together and he said Now we will go to the huddle, we'll go into Makkah, and we're going to go to Module how long the Kaaba we go there and now here we perform fell off.
Now here we perform to off and do sorry, and again remember what we had talked about earlier what we had talked about previously, that the wharf, the procedure of the wall if you entered the masjid, okay you make to our to Allah subhanaw taala.
You gaze upon the Kaaba you make to Allah, then you proceed, you kind of offer your greeting to the house of God is still on if you can kiss the Blackstone without creating a situation you do so otherwise, you gesture, you do seven circuits counterclockwise with the GABA to your left. You go around the Kaaba seven times at each circuit at the Blackstone you gesture towards it, when you are done with seven circuits you gesture towards it, and then you go somewhere beyond the spot the place called macom Ibrahim the station of Abraham, you go somewhere beyond there and you offer to the cause of prayer. After doing that the prophets allottee some signal was he would then drink some
and after drinking dissolves on the profits a lot so then went to then what he taught us to do was we go to setting a Safar with marijuana, the mountains of suffering murrah, we go to suffer, we stand there at suffer a little bit of up on sofa. Now if you're just at the end of the massage the area where you make sorry, you're already on top of the mountain, because it's been built on top of it, right? So you go to the end,
you turn in the direction of the Kaaba, you make do either you praise and glorify Allah, say Bismillah, Allahu Akbar. And then you walk from suffer Chihuahua, that is one
trip, you go one way, and then you make you come back from Ottawa to suffer that is to stopping at each point in making. In this way, you make seven one way trips. So you started out so far, and you will conclude at miroir seven one way. Alright. And when you finally conclude at lorawan, then again, you make two out there, and that is the conclusion of this era.
So the profits a lot a sum brought the Sahaba to the harem. And then he said, Now performed these rites and these rituals here. And this is known by two names, this juncture of the hajus either called the law of alpha, or the law of zyada. The prophets a logician referred to as the luffas era. So this is what that's called, something very interesting that happened at that particular moment that is mentioned in the Hadith Sahih. Muslim is that when they when they people were gathered there at the bottom, and they're doing so often they're doing sorry, and they're praying, all the herb jobs, 100,000 people.
People were getting water from the well of Zamzam, and they were scooping it into cups and giving water to people settling into the hands, the old tradition of Abraham giving water to the judge, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. When he saw that, he called on his family members, he called on his family members and he said in zero but anyhow,
him do this.
the children have absolutely because they are the descendants of the caretakers of the Kaaba. He said, You guys need to get in there and serve water to people. That's your prestige. That's your heritage. That's a legacy you've inherited, give one or two people and then the process of it was himself was riding on the back of the animal. And he said something very beautiful. He said for Lola and Jada Lieber como Nasrallah, say, Chico, Linda Zahra tumaco.
He said I myself would come there. down.
there and also serve water to people, if people would not start
creating if it would not create a situation, because you can imagine if the profits all of a sudden start serving water, everyone's going to want water from the hands of the profits. And so he said, it'll create a situation. So I won't come down there. But otherwise, the family, the descendants of others, they need to serve the water because that is the honor and the distinction of our family in our household.
And the somebody's got some water, they gave it to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a mentioned generation, that shedding them into the profits, a lot of them drank some of them, and a little bit was leftover one after I lay him in who, and then he took the remainder of the water and he poured it on his face in his head. So that's part of the cinema, because you've just shaved your head, you're performing the Waffen sorry, you're hot, you're tired. So the process of drink some water and then you poured some water on his face in his head. And that is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did at that particular time. So and after
this, they pray the heart, they're at the heart of Africa, and then they went back to me now, we'll conclude here for some observation. inshallah, in the next session, don't we'll talk about the next three, two days, two, almost three days that they spent in the place of Mina. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all the ability to practice everything we shouldn't hurt. So how to like he saw how to go along with the shadow Allah Allah Allah
