Showered upon our beloved prophet Muhammad,

00:04:10 --> 00:04:12

the master of the first and the last,

00:04:12 --> 00:04:14

and his family, his companions, and all those

00:04:14 --> 00:04:17

who call to his way and establish his

00:04:17 --> 00:04:17

sunnah

00:04:17 --> 00:04:18

to the day of judgment.

00:04:19 --> 00:04:21

As to what follows, my beloved brothers and

00:04:21 --> 00:04:24

sisters, to our viewers, our friends, assalamu alaikum,

00:04:26 --> 00:04:26

Alhamdulillah.

00:04:27 --> 00:04:30

This is another opportunity for us,

00:04:31 --> 00:04:33

to reflect in our new Muslim Corner.

00:04:34 --> 00:04:35

And

00:04:35 --> 00:04:36

this time of year,

00:04:37 --> 00:04:38

is

00:04:39 --> 00:04:41

another very important time,

00:04:42 --> 00:04:43

for those who have

00:04:44 --> 00:04:45

recently entered Islam.

00:04:46 --> 00:04:48

It is also interesting for those who may

00:04:48 --> 00:04:50

be interested in Islam

00:04:51 --> 00:04:53

and those who are comparing Islam,

00:04:54 --> 00:04:55

with other ways of life.

00:04:56 --> 00:04:59

Because this now is the last

00:05:00 --> 00:05:02

month in the lunar calendar.

00:05:03 --> 00:05:04

And it takes us to

00:05:05 --> 00:05:07

one of the important foundations,

00:05:08 --> 00:05:09

within Islamic lifestyle,

00:05:10 --> 00:05:11

and that is the performance

00:05:12 --> 00:05:13

of Hajj.

00:05:14 --> 00:05:15

We recognized,

00:05:15 --> 00:05:16

from the beginning

00:05:17 --> 00:05:20

that when prophet Muhammad was asked to describe,

00:05:21 --> 00:05:21

Islam,

00:05:22 --> 00:05:24

he basically said

00:05:24 --> 00:05:27

that Islam is to bear witness in the

00:05:27 --> 00:05:28

oneness of Allah

00:05:28 --> 00:05:29

and,

00:05:29 --> 00:05:29

that,

00:05:30 --> 00:05:31

Muhammad is his messenger

00:05:32 --> 00:05:34

and to perform the prayers

00:05:35 --> 00:05:36

to pay the zakat,

00:05:36 --> 00:05:39

give charity and the poor do, to fasten

00:05:39 --> 00:05:40

the month of Ramadan,

00:05:41 --> 00:05:43

and to perform the pilgrimage

00:05:44 --> 00:05:45

if you are able to do so.

00:05:46 --> 00:05:48

So these five actions

00:05:49 --> 00:05:50

really

00:05:50 --> 00:05:52

formed the basis of

00:05:52 --> 00:05:53

Islamic lifestyle.

00:05:54 --> 00:05:56

They shaped the Islamic personality,

00:05:57 --> 00:05:58

and

00:05:58 --> 00:06:01

some of them are constant.

00:06:02 --> 00:06:02

The

00:06:03 --> 00:06:04

pillar of shahada,

00:06:06 --> 00:06:08

that is the beginning of the road

00:06:09 --> 00:06:10

that we say the kalimah,

00:06:10 --> 00:06:13

bearing witness to the oneness of Allah and

00:06:14 --> 00:06:15

finality of prophethood.

00:06:16 --> 00:06:18

And hopefully, it's the end of the road

00:06:19 --> 00:06:21

because Muslims hope that their last words,

00:06:22 --> 00:06:23

would be

00:06:23 --> 00:06:23

these,

00:06:24 --> 00:06:25

this kalimah.

00:06:25 --> 00:06:27

So therefore, all throughout the life of a

00:06:27 --> 00:06:28

Muslim,

00:06:28 --> 00:06:30

we're constantly bearing witness

00:06:31 --> 00:06:33

with our words, with our thoughts, with our

00:06:33 --> 00:06:34

actions,

00:06:34 --> 00:06:36

in the oneness of Allah.

00:06:36 --> 00:06:38

And we do that in the light of

00:06:38 --> 00:06:39

the sunnah,

00:06:40 --> 00:06:41

in the light of the way of the

00:06:41 --> 00:06:43

messenger, peace be upon him. So this is

00:06:43 --> 00:06:45

a consistent thing all the way through.

00:06:46 --> 00:06:47

The salat

00:06:48 --> 00:06:50

is an act is actions

00:06:51 --> 00:06:52

establishing prayer

00:06:53 --> 00:06:56

is making that direct connection with the creator

00:06:56 --> 00:06:57

constantly.

00:06:58 --> 00:06:59

And so we are praying

00:06:59 --> 00:07:02

at 5 different times during the day.

00:07:03 --> 00:07:04

And that goes on,

00:07:05 --> 00:07:07

throughout the lifetime. And there are also special

00:07:07 --> 00:07:07

prayers,

00:07:08 --> 00:07:10

that are said at different points,

00:07:10 --> 00:07:12

you know, in the life of a Muslim.

00:07:12 --> 00:07:14

So this is a constant action, but there

00:07:14 --> 00:07:16

would be certain times during the day

00:07:17 --> 00:07:19

that you wouldn't necessarily be making salat.

00:07:20 --> 00:07:21

Okay. Zakat,

00:07:23 --> 00:07:23

paying

00:07:24 --> 00:07:26

the 2 a half percent the poor do,

00:07:26 --> 00:07:28

taking from your wealth,

00:07:28 --> 00:07:30

and giving to the poor and the needy.

00:07:31 --> 00:07:32

This is an action

00:07:32 --> 00:07:34

that needs to be done

00:07:34 --> 00:07:35

at least

00:07:35 --> 00:07:36

once per year.

00:07:37 --> 00:07:40

And the idea of zakat,

00:07:41 --> 00:07:42

the spirit of zakat

00:07:43 --> 00:07:45

is something that stays with

00:07:45 --> 00:07:46

the Muslim

00:07:46 --> 00:07:47

constantly

00:07:47 --> 00:07:50

because we're constantly ready to give of our

00:07:50 --> 00:07:52

wealth, give of our time,

00:07:52 --> 00:07:54

our thoughts, and our abilities. But

00:07:56 --> 00:07:58

it is restricted. The zakat itself does come

00:07:58 --> 00:07:59

in,

00:08:00 --> 00:08:01

once the wealth

00:08:02 --> 00:08:03

has reached a certain level,

00:08:04 --> 00:08:05

once a year.

00:08:06 --> 00:08:07

Fasting in Ramadan

00:08:08 --> 00:08:11

is done in the month of Ramadan, which

00:08:11 --> 00:08:12

is the 9th month,

00:08:13 --> 00:08:14

on on the lunar calendar.

00:08:15 --> 00:08:18

And Ramadan comes in yearly. So every year,

00:08:19 --> 00:08:21

Ramadan is gonna come in.

00:08:21 --> 00:08:22

So it is constant,

00:08:23 --> 00:08:25

but it's only 1 month during the year.

00:08:26 --> 00:08:27

So you can see that some of the

00:08:27 --> 00:08:28

actions,

00:08:29 --> 00:08:31

are always with us.

00:08:31 --> 00:08:33

Some of them have

00:08:33 --> 00:08:34

time,

00:08:35 --> 00:08:36

a time basis

00:08:37 --> 00:08:38

in order for them to be practiced.

00:08:40 --> 00:08:42

Hajj, the performance of pilgrimage,

00:08:43 --> 00:08:43

is

00:08:44 --> 00:08:44

required

00:08:45 --> 00:08:46

once in a lifetime.

00:08:48 --> 00:08:50

We have to try to make this pilgrimage

00:08:51 --> 00:08:52

if we are able to do so.

00:08:53 --> 00:08:55

And this ability, azadwarahila,

00:08:56 --> 00:08:59

which means that you have the the the

00:08:59 --> 00:09:00

money to pay for the trip,

00:09:01 --> 00:09:03

to take care of your family or your

00:09:03 --> 00:09:04

whatever it is,

00:09:05 --> 00:09:07

and you have you can travel there.

00:09:08 --> 00:09:10

Okay. So you go to the pilgrimage,

00:09:11 --> 00:09:13

once in a lifetime. And

00:09:14 --> 00:09:17

during the year, the pilgrimage only comes in

00:09:18 --> 00:09:20

at one point during the year.

00:09:20 --> 00:09:22

So there are specific days

00:09:24 --> 00:09:26

when the pilgrimage is performed.

00:09:27 --> 00:09:29

And there is a specific 7 days,

00:09:30 --> 00:09:31

in it that the pilgrims

00:09:32 --> 00:09:35

are there. They are specified. They are there

00:09:35 --> 00:09:35

in our calendar.

00:09:36 --> 00:09:39

So it is also time sensitive.

00:09:40 --> 00:09:42

And we have come to this point,

00:09:43 --> 00:09:45

in our, lunar year.

00:09:46 --> 00:09:48

We have come to the point where we

00:09:48 --> 00:09:49

have reached

00:09:49 --> 00:09:51

the 12th month,

00:09:51 --> 00:09:52

in the lunar calendar.

00:09:53 --> 00:09:55

And if you look at your months,

00:09:55 --> 00:09:57

and again, the lunar calendar rotates.

00:09:58 --> 00:10:00

So this is not similar to the solar

00:10:00 --> 00:10:00

calendar

00:10:01 --> 00:10:02

where every December,

00:10:03 --> 00:10:04

it's cold in Canada.

00:10:05 --> 00:10:08

Okay. And then you have your solstice at

00:10:08 --> 00:10:08

different times.

00:10:09 --> 00:10:11

This is lunar. So lunar rotates,

00:10:13 --> 00:10:14

and they'll it'll shift.

00:10:16 --> 00:10:16

And basically,

00:10:17 --> 00:10:19

the 12 months, you have Muharram

00:10:19 --> 00:10:22

as the beginning, Safa rabi'il Awil rabi'athani,

00:10:23 --> 00:10:25

Jamada Ulla, Jamada Uqra,

00:10:26 --> 00:10:28

Rajab, Shaaban, Ramadan.

00:10:29 --> 00:10:31

Right? That's your fasting month, number 9.

00:10:31 --> 00:10:32

And then Shawwal,

00:10:33 --> 00:10:34

and then Dhulqada.

00:10:35 --> 00:10:36

And we have just come out of Dhulqada,

00:10:36 --> 00:10:39

and we have entered Dhul Hijjah.

00:10:40 --> 00:10:42

So we are in the month of

00:10:42 --> 00:10:43

the pilgrimage.

00:10:43 --> 00:10:45

We've entered the 12th month

00:10:45 --> 00:10:47

in the lunar calendar.

00:10:48 --> 00:10:50

And again, so so the time sensitivity,

00:10:51 --> 00:10:53

comes in with this month.

00:10:54 --> 00:10:56

And the first 10 days

00:10:57 --> 00:10:58

in the month of

00:10:59 --> 00:10:59

Duhija

00:11:00 --> 00:11:01

are sacred days.

00:11:02 --> 00:11:02

Alhamdulillah,

00:11:03 --> 00:11:06

we have entered Duhija today. So we're actually

00:11:06 --> 00:11:07

in the first,

00:11:08 --> 00:11:08

of Duhija.

00:11:09 --> 00:11:11

And the messenger of Allah sallallahu alaihi wa

00:11:11 --> 00:11:14

sallam said, there is no day more honorable

00:11:14 --> 00:11:15

in Allah's sight

00:11:15 --> 00:11:19

and no acts more more beloved therein to

00:11:19 --> 00:11:21

Allah than those that are done in these,

00:11:22 --> 00:11:23

10 days.

00:11:25 --> 00:11:25

Say tahleel

00:11:26 --> 00:11:27

la ilaha illallah.

00:11:27 --> 00:11:28

So he should say that.

00:11:29 --> 00:11:30

Say takbir,

00:11:31 --> 00:11:32

Allahu Akbar.

00:11:32 --> 00:11:33

Say tahmid,

00:11:34 --> 00:11:34

alhamdulillah.

00:11:36 --> 00:11:37

He said, say it often.

00:11:38 --> 00:11:41

So during these 10 days, we should be

00:11:41 --> 00:11:42

constantly remembering

00:11:43 --> 00:11:43

Allah

00:11:45 --> 00:11:47

Also during the 10 days, and there's a

00:11:47 --> 00:11:48

number of traditions,

00:11:49 --> 00:11:50

surrounding this,

00:11:51 --> 00:11:53

But in this 10 days, we also,

00:11:53 --> 00:11:55

do good deeds,

00:11:55 --> 00:11:58

which could include fasting as well,

00:11:59 --> 00:12:01

fasting on any of the days. We normally

00:12:01 --> 00:12:02

don't fast on Jummah,

00:12:03 --> 00:12:05

but other than that, we try to fast

00:12:05 --> 00:12:06

as much as possible,

00:12:06 --> 00:12:08

especially on Mondays Thursdays,

00:12:09 --> 00:12:10

to give charity,

00:12:11 --> 00:12:13

call to the good, forbid evil,

00:12:14 --> 00:12:16

whatever you can possibly do in,

00:12:17 --> 00:12:18

these 10 days,

00:12:19 --> 00:12:20

has great reward.

00:12:21 --> 00:12:23

And so we've entered the 10 days,

00:12:24 --> 00:12:25

of the Uhidja.

00:12:26 --> 00:12:27

This is not compulsory.

00:12:28 --> 00:12:31

By the way, these acts are not compulsory.

00:12:32 --> 00:12:33

The only thing that comes

00:12:34 --> 00:12:35

becomes very important

00:12:36 --> 00:12:37

to a Muslim,

00:12:38 --> 00:12:40

right you could say it's compulsory

00:12:41 --> 00:12:43

if you're and that is to make Hajj.

00:12:44 --> 00:12:46

If you have the ability to make it,

00:12:47 --> 00:12:49

and there's nothing stopping you from making it,

00:12:50 --> 00:12:51

then you should

00:12:52 --> 00:12:53

give everything,

00:12:54 --> 00:12:55

to make that pilgrimage

00:12:56 --> 00:12:56

once in a lifetime.

00:12:58 --> 00:12:59

K? And

00:13:00 --> 00:13:03

so these are the dates. And again for

00:13:03 --> 00:13:04

our new Muslim Corner,

00:13:05 --> 00:13:07

the intention of our class is just to

00:13:07 --> 00:13:09

make things clear and easy,

00:13:10 --> 00:13:11

for us. So,

00:13:12 --> 00:13:12

June 7th,

00:13:13 --> 00:13:15

right, the month has begun.

00:13:16 --> 00:13:18

Okay? And then we're going through,

00:13:19 --> 00:13:20

the 10 days. And so

00:13:21 --> 00:13:22

next Friday,

00:13:23 --> 00:13:26

that is when the actual pilgrimage

00:13:27 --> 00:13:29

in Mecca itself begins.

00:13:30 --> 00:13:31

It would be next Friday.

00:13:31 --> 00:13:33

Doesn't begin for us because we're not there,

00:13:33 --> 00:13:34

you know, in Mecca.

00:13:35 --> 00:13:37

You know, we're not in the sites, but

00:13:37 --> 00:13:38

it begins,

00:13:38 --> 00:13:41

then. And then the 15th is Arafat

00:13:41 --> 00:13:43

Day, that is, next Saturday,

00:13:44 --> 00:13:45

and 16th,

00:13:46 --> 00:13:48

which would be the Sunday,

00:13:49 --> 00:13:50

that is Eid al Adha.

00:13:51 --> 00:13:53

So this is another important

00:13:54 --> 00:13:57

extremely important time because the Eid, these are

00:13:57 --> 00:13:58

the two most

00:13:58 --> 00:14:01

important days of celebration and gathering,

00:14:01 --> 00:14:03

in the Muslim calendar.

00:14:03 --> 00:14:05

This is the Eid al Adha.

00:14:05 --> 00:14:08

And for people who are not living in

00:14:08 --> 00:14:09

the area of Mecca

00:14:10 --> 00:14:13

or who are not in a Muslim community

00:14:13 --> 00:14:14

with a lot of people who are

00:14:15 --> 00:14:17

going back and forth to Mecca, this Eid

00:14:17 --> 00:14:19

can sort of, like, surprise you.

00:14:20 --> 00:14:21

It sort of catches up on you.

00:14:22 --> 00:14:25

Ramadan is clear because we're we're suffering for

00:14:25 --> 00:14:26

29 days.

00:14:26 --> 00:14:29

So by when Eid ul Fitr comes, it's

00:14:29 --> 00:14:30

release. You are released.

00:14:31 --> 00:14:34

So everybody is waiting for the Eid.

00:14:34 --> 00:14:35

It's a climax.

00:14:36 --> 00:14:37

But this one,

00:14:38 --> 00:14:40

although it's extremely important,

00:14:41 --> 00:14:43

it'll sort of catch us by surprise

00:14:44 --> 00:14:45

unless we're,

00:14:46 --> 00:14:49

very much tied in with the lunar calendar.

00:14:50 --> 00:14:52

Okay? So keep that in mind and try

00:14:52 --> 00:14:54

to get a calendar. You can get them

00:14:54 --> 00:14:55

in most of the masjids

00:14:56 --> 00:14:58

here. Get a calendar or have it there,

00:14:58 --> 00:15:01

you know, on your cell phone that gives

00:15:01 --> 00:15:02

you constantly,

00:15:02 --> 00:15:04

you know, your Gregorian's

00:15:04 --> 00:15:06

solar date and your lunar date.

00:15:07 --> 00:15:08

So you can constantly follow,

00:15:09 --> 00:15:10

those dates.

00:15:12 --> 00:15:13

So the day of of of Arafa,

00:15:14 --> 00:15:15

which will be coming,

00:15:16 --> 00:15:19

next week, not tomorrow, but the following

00:15:19 --> 00:15:20

Saturday.

00:15:21 --> 00:15:24

So this is, important. And the prophet

00:15:24 --> 00:15:26

said fasting on the day of Arafa

00:15:26 --> 00:15:27

is kafara,

00:15:28 --> 00:15:30

is an expiation for 2 years.

00:15:31 --> 00:15:33

The years preceding it

00:15:33 --> 00:15:34

and the year

00:15:35 --> 00:15:36

following it.

00:15:36 --> 00:15:37

So it is

00:15:38 --> 00:15:40

a release of the sins, a forgiveness of

00:15:40 --> 00:15:41

sins,

00:15:42 --> 00:15:44

for the preceding year and for the following

00:15:44 --> 00:15:45

year,

00:15:45 --> 00:15:46

when

00:15:46 --> 00:15:47

the person fast

00:15:48 --> 00:15:50

on this day of Arafa. That's how important

00:15:50 --> 00:15:51

it is.

00:15:52 --> 00:15:53

And the fasting on Ashura,

00:15:55 --> 00:15:57

and that is in the month of Muharram,

00:15:57 --> 00:15:59

that is the 10th of Muharram.

00:16:00 --> 00:16:02

So fasting on that date, which will be

00:16:02 --> 00:16:03

coming next month.

00:16:04 --> 00:16:06

Right? You gotta you have to finish this

00:16:06 --> 00:16:08

month, and then that is an expiation,

00:16:09 --> 00:16:11

for the year preceding it.

00:16:12 --> 00:16:13

So the year before it,

00:16:14 --> 00:16:16

that is an expiation,

00:16:16 --> 00:16:18

you know, for the sin. So that is,

00:16:19 --> 00:16:20

out of our,

00:16:21 --> 00:16:21

day,

00:16:22 --> 00:16:25

and, we are moving toward that time.

00:16:25 --> 00:16:27

Okay? So I wanna open up the floor

00:16:27 --> 00:16:28

now

00:16:28 --> 00:16:31

for any questions, immediate questions. This because this

00:16:31 --> 00:16:32

is a workshop.

00:16:32 --> 00:16:34

Okay? So we've we're in the month of

00:16:34 --> 00:16:34

Duhija.

00:16:35 --> 00:16:37

It's a shock for a lot of people.

00:16:37 --> 00:16:38

You might come to Jummah. You might hear

00:16:38 --> 00:16:40

people say, oh, Hajj is coming and it's

00:16:40 --> 00:16:43

Duhija and whatever. It's come up so it

00:16:43 --> 00:16:44

is upon us now.

00:16:45 --> 00:16:47

Okay? So this is the 10 days of

00:16:47 --> 00:16:48

the month of Duhija.

00:16:49 --> 00:16:50

K? So the floor is open for any

00:16:50 --> 00:16:51

questions. Question.

00:16:52 --> 00:16:53

For

00:16:53 --> 00:16:55

when you said that if you fast,

00:16:55 --> 00:16:56

then it

00:16:57 --> 00:16:59

it for your reasons for the previous year

00:16:59 --> 00:17:01

and the bump the upcoming year,

00:17:02 --> 00:17:02

what

00:17:03 --> 00:17:04

exactly does that mean? Because obviously, like, you

00:17:04 --> 00:17:06

don't you can't just go around saying, oh,

00:17:06 --> 00:17:07

I have a free pass. I can do

00:17:07 --> 00:17:09

whatever I want for the next year. So,

00:17:09 --> 00:17:09

like,

00:17:10 --> 00:17:10

what

00:17:11 --> 00:17:12

what does this You know? And and and

00:17:12 --> 00:17:15

these sins have been clarified. They're minor sins.

00:17:15 --> 00:17:16

Yeah. You know? And

00:17:17 --> 00:17:19

it it is like a blessing. It's it's

00:17:19 --> 00:17:21

an added reward and blessing incentive,

00:17:22 --> 00:17:23

you know, for the person, but it does

00:17:23 --> 00:17:26

not give the person that ability to do

00:17:26 --> 00:17:27

this sin

00:17:27 --> 00:17:29

because they think they're being freed from it.

00:17:29 --> 00:17:30

No.

00:17:30 --> 00:17:32

But it it's just like an incentive,

00:17:32 --> 00:17:34

you know, to show the blessings,

00:17:34 --> 00:17:36

you know, in in this month

00:17:37 --> 00:17:37

of Arafat.

00:17:38 --> 00:17:40

But, you know, it it it could be

00:17:40 --> 00:17:43

taken the wrong way. Question. So,

00:17:44 --> 00:17:46

in terms of the day of our when

00:17:46 --> 00:17:48

the day comes in, it's it's after the

00:17:48 --> 00:17:49

mother prayer. Right?

00:17:49 --> 00:17:51

So when Arafat comes now,

00:17:52 --> 00:17:53

and that will be next,

00:17:54 --> 00:17:56

Saturday, but it would start on Friday night,

00:17:56 --> 00:17:58

it's similar to Ramadan.

00:17:58 --> 00:18:01

You remember that the Ramadan starts

00:18:01 --> 00:18:04

your fasting, you know, when after Maghrib, you

00:18:04 --> 00:18:06

have entered the the day.

00:18:06 --> 00:18:09

So after Maghrib is when Arafat comes and

00:18:09 --> 00:18:11

then you're fasting. So the same way like

00:18:11 --> 00:18:13

before, you would get up for suhoor,

00:18:14 --> 00:18:15

before Fajr,

00:18:16 --> 00:18:18

and you you take your your your morning

00:18:18 --> 00:18:18

meal,

00:18:19 --> 00:18:21

and then you would fast next Saturday

00:18:21 --> 00:18:23

with the same basic rules,

00:18:24 --> 00:18:26

as you'd follow in the month of Ramadan,

00:18:26 --> 00:18:28

except there is no taweeh prayers

00:18:29 --> 00:18:30

being done,

00:18:31 --> 00:18:33

in the evening. And if for some reason

00:18:33 --> 00:18:33

the person

00:18:33 --> 00:18:35

couldn't, make it

00:18:35 --> 00:18:37

or what you know, didn't make the fast,

00:18:37 --> 00:18:38

it's not a sin.

00:18:39 --> 00:18:41

So it's not like you didn't do wrong.

00:18:41 --> 00:18:44

You just missed out on some serious blessings.

00:18:45 --> 00:18:47

Okay? But it's not Like, if you miss

00:18:47 --> 00:18:49

Ramadan, you've done something

00:18:50 --> 00:18:52

wrong. But that not with, Arafat.

00:18:54 --> 00:18:54

Question.

00:19:05 --> 00:19:06

So the question is, is it a must

00:19:06 --> 00:19:08

to fast on the 10 days

00:19:08 --> 00:19:10

of Duhijja? No. It is not. It is

00:19:10 --> 00:19:13

not like Ramadan at all. These are just

00:19:13 --> 00:19:14

blessed days,

00:19:14 --> 00:19:17

and you have your choice to fast or

00:19:17 --> 00:19:18

not fast.

00:19:19 --> 00:19:21

How whatever good deeds that you can do,

00:19:21 --> 00:19:23

you do it, during these 10 days.

00:19:24 --> 00:19:26

The important day is Arafat Day, which is

00:19:26 --> 00:19:27

next Saturday.

00:19:28 --> 00:19:30

So that that is the one that's you

00:19:30 --> 00:19:31

really try,

00:19:31 --> 00:19:32

you know, to make that. But the other

00:19:32 --> 00:19:34

days, you don't have to. Although it is

00:19:34 --> 00:19:37

good, it is much better. You get great

00:19:37 --> 00:19:37

rewards,

00:19:38 --> 00:19:40

for fasting, but it is not compulsory

00:19:41 --> 00:19:43

and and should not be considered to be

00:19:43 --> 00:19:44

compulsory on people,

00:19:45 --> 00:19:47

to do the fast during these days.

00:19:49 --> 00:19:51

Yeah. Do you have any insight on why

00:19:51 --> 00:19:53

doing Hajj is so expensive? Like, I hear

00:19:53 --> 00:19:54

some crazy numbers.

00:19:55 --> 00:19:58

Okay. Question is about Hajj. Now this is

00:19:58 --> 00:19:59

a, you know, very,

00:19:59 --> 00:20:00

up to date question.

00:20:01 --> 00:20:02

In terms of,

00:20:03 --> 00:20:04

making the Hajj,

00:20:05 --> 00:20:07

prices go up and they go down.

00:20:09 --> 00:20:09

But basically,

00:20:10 --> 00:20:11

what it says,

00:20:12 --> 00:20:14

in terms of our our faith is that,

00:20:14 --> 00:20:15

you know,

00:20:17 --> 00:20:20

So the prophet said, you make Hajj if

00:20:20 --> 00:20:22

you are able to make it.

00:20:23 --> 00:20:24

So if you have

00:20:25 --> 00:20:27

the ability to make it there

00:20:28 --> 00:20:29

and you have enough

00:20:29 --> 00:20:31

to take care of your family, your home,

00:20:31 --> 00:20:32

whatever,

00:20:32 --> 00:20:35

then you can make it. So that ability,

00:20:36 --> 00:20:38

you know, does have something to do with

00:20:38 --> 00:20:40

the time and space that you're in.

00:20:41 --> 00:20:43

For some people, making Hajj may be very

00:20:43 --> 00:20:45

simple because they live right next door to

00:20:45 --> 00:20:46

Saudi Arabia,

00:20:47 --> 00:20:49

or maybe they live inside of Saudi Arabia.

00:20:50 --> 00:20:52

Okay? For other people, it's a little more

00:20:52 --> 00:20:52

expensive.

00:20:54 --> 00:20:55

If you're in a war zone,

00:20:56 --> 00:20:58

then it's gonna be really hard,

00:20:59 --> 00:21:01

you know, to to to to to do

00:21:01 --> 00:21:01

anything.

00:21:03 --> 00:21:05

And so it it's it's the ta'a

00:21:05 --> 00:21:06

is basically,

00:21:07 --> 00:21:08

your ability to make it.

00:21:09 --> 00:21:10

And

00:21:11 --> 00:21:13

it should be made easier by,

00:21:14 --> 00:21:15

the Hajj authorities.

00:21:16 --> 00:21:17

But unfortunately,

00:21:17 --> 00:21:19

sometimes people take advantage,

00:21:20 --> 00:21:22

you know, of that. I'm not involved

00:21:22 --> 00:21:24

in organizing the actual

00:21:24 --> 00:21:25

trips themselves,

00:21:26 --> 00:21:28

but prices have gone up in terms of

00:21:28 --> 00:21:29

airfare

00:21:30 --> 00:21:31

and hotel fares

00:21:31 --> 00:21:33

and whatnot. So the person who gives you

00:21:33 --> 00:21:34

a package

00:21:34 --> 00:21:36

has to include all of those, you know,

00:21:36 --> 00:21:40

different things, and then whatever tax the Saudi

00:21:40 --> 00:21:41

Arabian government gives.

00:21:41 --> 00:21:43

All of this comes in the ability. So

00:21:43 --> 00:21:45

if a person, you know, couldn't afford it,

00:21:47 --> 00:21:49

then they don't fall in the category of

00:21:49 --> 00:21:50

people who can make it.

00:21:50 --> 00:21:52

They don't fall in that category.

00:21:53 --> 00:21:54

Although some people,

00:21:55 --> 00:21:57

based upon the culture that they live in,

00:21:58 --> 00:22:00

they are so determined to make Hajj

00:22:01 --> 00:22:02

that they go through

00:22:03 --> 00:22:04

a lot. And I know of stories. I

00:22:04 --> 00:22:05

met a person,

00:22:06 --> 00:22:08

when I was living in Medina. He came

00:22:08 --> 00:22:10

from the country of Mauritania,

00:22:11 --> 00:22:12

and that is in

00:22:12 --> 00:22:13

West Africa.

00:22:14 --> 00:22:15

And he set out

00:22:16 --> 00:22:17

on foot.

00:22:17 --> 00:22:19

He didn't take Saudi Airlines,

00:22:21 --> 00:22:22

from he walked.

00:22:23 --> 00:22:25

And he went through and every place he

00:22:25 --> 00:22:27

went, he worked a little bit. He was

00:22:27 --> 00:22:30

not a rich man. And after a couple

00:22:30 --> 00:22:30

years,

00:22:31 --> 00:22:32

he made it across

00:22:33 --> 00:22:34

to Saudi Arabia and then he made as

00:22:34 --> 00:22:37

Hajj. He was determined to make it.

00:22:38 --> 00:22:39

Okay? He didn't

00:22:39 --> 00:22:42

base it upon the money to pay for,

00:22:42 --> 00:22:45

you know, a ticket or a tour because

00:22:45 --> 00:22:46

he wanted to make it.

00:22:46 --> 00:22:49

So but basically speaking, you know, the religion

00:22:49 --> 00:22:52

is not to be made difficult on people.

00:22:52 --> 00:22:54

It's based upon the ability

00:22:54 --> 00:22:55

of the individual

00:22:56 --> 00:22:57

to make the Hajj.

00:22:58 --> 00:22:59

Question online.

00:22:59 --> 00:23:01

What makes Arafadeh good from the other days

00:23:01 --> 00:23:03

during these 10 days?

00:23:05 --> 00:23:09

Arafat Day is different because prophet Muhammad has

00:23:10 --> 00:23:11

said it is different,

00:23:11 --> 00:23:12

that it is a blessed day.

00:23:14 --> 00:23:14

And,

00:23:16 --> 00:23:18

it is considered to be when the pilgrims

00:23:20 --> 00:23:22

are on Hajj. And next week inshallah, we're

00:23:22 --> 00:23:24

gonna go through the Hajj with you.

00:23:24 --> 00:23:26

So you'll see every step of it.

00:23:27 --> 00:23:28

And

00:23:28 --> 00:23:30

when they on 9th day when they reach,

00:23:30 --> 00:23:31

Arafa,

00:23:32 --> 00:23:34

and when they go on the Mount of

00:23:34 --> 00:23:34

Arafa,

00:23:35 --> 00:23:36

in the afternoon,

00:23:37 --> 00:23:39

and this is when the prophet, salaam, and

00:23:39 --> 00:23:42

his companions were praying to Allah, that is

00:23:42 --> 00:23:43

considered to be

00:23:44 --> 00:23:46

the best possible time to make dua

00:23:47 --> 00:23:50

to Allah is in Arafat on that mountain.

00:23:51 --> 00:23:53

It is considered to be, you know, the

00:23:53 --> 00:23:55

best time of of prayer,

00:23:56 --> 00:23:58

that a person can have.

00:23:58 --> 00:24:00

And so even for the peep for the

00:24:00 --> 00:24:02

people who are who can't be there,

00:24:02 --> 00:24:04

then we fast.

00:24:05 --> 00:24:07

So so it it is a sacred time,

00:24:08 --> 00:24:09

it you know, within

00:24:09 --> 00:24:12

the Hajj itself. And one time the prophet,

00:24:12 --> 00:24:15

peace be upon him, even said, al Hajj

00:24:15 --> 00:24:15

Arafa.

00:24:16 --> 00:24:19

He said the essence of Hajj is Arafat.

00:24:20 --> 00:24:21

That's basically

00:24:21 --> 00:24:23

the essence of the whole Hajj.

00:24:24 --> 00:24:26

Because the essence is the connection with the

00:24:26 --> 00:24:27

creator

00:24:28 --> 00:24:30

and, you know, making that prayer.

00:24:30 --> 00:24:32

That is the pinnacle of the Hajj

00:24:32 --> 00:24:34

itself. So outside,

00:24:34 --> 00:24:35

we can't make it there,

00:24:36 --> 00:24:37

so we fast,

00:24:38 --> 00:24:40

during that time to get as as much

00:24:40 --> 00:24:41

of the blessings as we possibly,

00:24:42 --> 00:24:43

can get.

00:24:44 --> 00:24:45

K? Online,

00:24:45 --> 00:24:47

any other questions or anybody has

00:24:47 --> 00:24:48

online?

00:24:50 --> 00:24:51

So

00:24:54 --> 00:24:54

basically,

00:24:56 --> 00:24:58

the Hajj itself

00:24:59 --> 00:25:00

is the 5th

00:25:00 --> 00:25:01

pillar,

00:25:02 --> 00:25:03

and it combines

00:25:03 --> 00:25:04

all of the pillars.

00:25:06 --> 00:25:07

And that's also another observation

00:25:08 --> 00:25:10

that's important about the Hajj because

00:25:10 --> 00:25:11

it combines

00:25:11 --> 00:25:12

the shahada,

00:25:12 --> 00:25:15

you're constantly bearing witness to the oneness of

00:25:15 --> 00:25:16

Allah.

00:25:16 --> 00:25:18

It has prayer within it.

00:25:19 --> 00:25:20

It has fasting

00:25:21 --> 00:25:23

because if a person breaks certain aspects of

00:25:23 --> 00:25:24

the

00:25:24 --> 00:25:26

Hajj itself, then they have to fast in

00:25:26 --> 00:25:27

order to,

00:25:28 --> 00:25:29

make up for it.

00:25:30 --> 00:25:32

You know, it it has giving,

00:25:32 --> 00:25:34

You know, you're also giving, you're sacrificing.

00:25:35 --> 00:25:38

And so it combines all of the pillars.

00:25:38 --> 00:25:40

And if the person

00:25:40 --> 00:25:41

does the Hajj

00:25:41 --> 00:25:44

properly, then it is considered to be Hajj

00:25:44 --> 00:25:44

Ma'bruh,

00:25:44 --> 00:25:47

and that person is like a child.

00:25:48 --> 00:25:49

No sins.

00:25:50 --> 00:25:51

All sins are forgiven

00:25:52 --> 00:25:53

for that person.

00:25:54 --> 00:25:55

So this is something that

00:25:56 --> 00:25:57

we want to to experience,

00:25:58 --> 00:26:01

in our life. And most people when they

00:26:01 --> 00:26:02

think about

00:26:02 --> 00:26:03

Hajj

00:26:03 --> 00:26:05

or even non Muslims when they're taught about

00:26:05 --> 00:26:06

it,

00:26:06 --> 00:26:09

This is Saudi Arabia, it's Arabs,

00:26:09 --> 00:26:10

and whatever.

00:26:10 --> 00:26:11

And it's surprising

00:26:12 --> 00:26:14

when people find out

00:26:15 --> 00:26:17

that the actual Hajj itself,

00:26:18 --> 00:26:19

the rituals,

00:26:19 --> 00:26:21

the actions that we are doing

00:26:21 --> 00:26:23

are not based upon

00:26:24 --> 00:26:26

the actions of prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings

00:26:26 --> 00:26:29

be upon him. There's actions before his actions.

00:26:31 --> 00:26:32

So it was established,

00:26:32 --> 00:26:35

certain things were established, and then with the

00:26:35 --> 00:26:39

guidance of Allah, he was show shown how

00:26:39 --> 00:26:40

to put it into a package.

00:26:41 --> 00:26:43

So it becomes a package that we all

00:26:43 --> 00:26:44

can experience.

00:26:45 --> 00:26:47

But the person who is

00:26:47 --> 00:26:48

critical

00:26:49 --> 00:26:50

and central

00:26:50 --> 00:26:53

to the Hajj itself is prophet Ibrahim alayhis

00:26:53 --> 00:26:54

salam.

00:26:54 --> 00:26:57

And that's again an important understanding,

00:26:58 --> 00:26:59

especially for those

00:27:00 --> 00:27:01

of the people of the book,

00:27:01 --> 00:27:03

the Christians and the Jews and other people

00:27:03 --> 00:27:04

who consider,

00:27:04 --> 00:27:05

Abraham

00:27:05 --> 00:27:07

to be an important person.

00:27:07 --> 00:27:09

Historians have even looked into,

00:27:10 --> 00:27:12

Abraham's life and, you know, he was such

00:27:12 --> 00:27:13

an important person

00:27:13 --> 00:27:15

in terms of what was established,

00:27:16 --> 00:27:19

during his time and establishing the house

00:27:19 --> 00:27:20

that,

00:27:20 --> 00:27:23

people some historians even say that he influenced

00:27:24 --> 00:27:26

people all the way to India.

00:27:26 --> 00:27:28

That the Brahmins themselves, that the name of

00:27:29 --> 00:27:30

the Brahim, the the the Brahmins

00:27:31 --> 00:27:32

were considered to be the highest cast in

00:27:32 --> 00:27:33

Hinduism.

00:27:33 --> 00:27:35

You know, that their concept of the, of

00:27:35 --> 00:27:38

the creator and relating to the creator also

00:27:38 --> 00:27:39

came from this name,

00:27:40 --> 00:27:41

of Ibrahim,

00:27:41 --> 00:27:44

alaihis salam. So he is a central

00:27:45 --> 00:27:46

figure.

00:27:47 --> 00:27:50

A central figure in understanding Islam

00:27:50 --> 00:27:51

and also connecting,

00:27:53 --> 00:27:54

Muslims to other faiths

00:27:55 --> 00:27:56

around the world.

00:27:57 --> 00:27:59

And so we we need to just

00:27:59 --> 00:28:01

walk through the story again.

00:28:02 --> 00:28:04

The more you go through the story

00:28:04 --> 00:28:06

of Ibrahim alaihis salam,

00:28:07 --> 00:28:09

is the more we can understand what we

00:28:09 --> 00:28:09

are doing.

00:28:10 --> 00:28:10

Because,

00:28:11 --> 00:28:13

again, it's important for Muslims,

00:28:13 --> 00:28:15

especially those who

00:28:15 --> 00:28:16

are have entered into Islam,

00:28:17 --> 00:28:20

to be practicing Islam based upon knowledge,

00:28:21 --> 00:28:21

basira.

00:28:22 --> 00:28:24

You're not just following somebody else.

00:28:25 --> 00:28:27

Okay? But but but you base it upon

00:28:28 --> 00:28:31

sound knowledge. So Ibrahim alaihis salam, as we

00:28:31 --> 00:28:32

found out,

00:28:33 --> 00:28:34

lived in what is now Iraq,

00:28:35 --> 00:28:37

in the area of Chaldea and Ur,

00:28:38 --> 00:28:40

and this is in Tigris Euphrates region.

00:28:41 --> 00:28:42

Okay? And

00:28:42 --> 00:28:44

very intelligent young man,

00:28:45 --> 00:28:47

with a strong belief in the creator,

00:28:48 --> 00:28:49

naturally within himself

00:28:50 --> 00:28:51

from the beginning of his life.

00:28:52 --> 00:28:54

His father, unfortunately, was an idol

00:28:54 --> 00:28:55

maker,

00:28:55 --> 00:28:57

not just an idol worshiper,

00:28:58 --> 00:28:59

but he used to make the idols.

00:29:00 --> 00:29:02

So he's a very important person,

00:29:03 --> 00:29:04

there. And although

00:29:04 --> 00:29:06

this area of Iraq,

00:29:06 --> 00:29:07

you know, had

00:29:08 --> 00:29:09

great prophets who came,

00:29:10 --> 00:29:12

in this area, and the message had been

00:29:12 --> 00:29:13

around them.

00:29:13 --> 00:29:16

They forgot the message, and they were reduced,

00:29:17 --> 00:29:18

to idol worship.

00:29:20 --> 00:29:22

And these are some of the idols. These

00:29:22 --> 00:29:24

this particular shot of idols I I I

00:29:24 --> 00:29:25

took because

00:29:26 --> 00:29:27

the one in the middle,

00:29:28 --> 00:29:29

the big one there with the beard,

00:29:30 --> 00:29:32

that one there is a classical type of

00:29:32 --> 00:29:34

idol that you'd find in Iraq.

00:29:35 --> 00:29:37

Dating back to ancient Mesopotamia,

00:29:39 --> 00:29:40

and Ur and Khaldea.

00:29:41 --> 00:29:43

So this is how they would make it

00:29:44 --> 00:29:46

in these forms and in other forms.

00:29:46 --> 00:29:49

And Ibrahim's father was an idol maker, but

00:29:49 --> 00:29:50

Ibrahim alayhi salaam,

00:29:51 --> 00:29:52

he rejected this.

00:29:53 --> 00:29:54

And

00:29:55 --> 00:29:57

he looked at the stars and the sun

00:29:57 --> 00:29:58

and the moon.

00:29:59 --> 00:30:01

He he asked he literally spoke.

00:30:02 --> 00:30:03

Are you, my lord, did not

00:30:04 --> 00:30:06

he rejected all of this. And he broke

00:30:06 --> 00:30:07

the idols

00:30:08 --> 00:30:09

one time in the area that his father

00:30:09 --> 00:30:12

had set up and put the stick in

00:30:12 --> 00:30:13

the hands of the big idol.

00:30:14 --> 00:30:16

When the people came back

00:30:16 --> 00:30:18

and they asked who did this,

00:30:19 --> 00:30:21

and they saw Ibrahim, he said, ask your

00:30:21 --> 00:30:21

idol.

00:30:22 --> 00:30:24

Because if that's your lord,

00:30:24 --> 00:30:26

the idol's gonna tell you.

00:30:26 --> 00:30:27

And it couldn't respond,

00:30:28 --> 00:30:30

and they turned on him.

00:30:30 --> 00:30:32

And they lit a fire,

00:30:32 --> 00:30:34

took him to the town square,

00:30:34 --> 00:30:36

and they threw him in a blazing

00:30:36 --> 00:30:37

fire.

00:30:37 --> 00:30:40

This is a horrible way to execute somebody.

00:30:41 --> 00:30:43

They put him in a blazing fire, but

00:30:43 --> 00:30:44

Allah Azzawajal,

00:30:46 --> 00:30:46

made

00:30:47 --> 00:30:48

this fire

00:30:49 --> 00:30:52

a place of coolness and peace for Ibrahim.

00:30:52 --> 00:30:55

And when the fire went down,

00:30:55 --> 00:30:57

they expected only to see ashes,

00:30:58 --> 00:30:59

but Ibrahim was there.

00:31:00 --> 00:31:03

And so they were afraid. He's a magician

00:31:03 --> 00:31:06

or something, and they left him alone. He

00:31:06 --> 00:31:07

realized he had to leave,

00:31:08 --> 00:31:09

and he made his way out.

00:31:10 --> 00:31:13

And some say the king at the time

00:31:13 --> 00:31:13

was Nimrod.

00:31:14 --> 00:31:16

There's different understandings if you go back in

00:31:16 --> 00:31:17

the history of that region.

00:31:19 --> 00:31:19

There may be understandings,

00:31:21 --> 00:31:22

slightly different, but Nimrod is one of the

00:31:22 --> 00:31:25

names that comes up. In any event, Ibrahim

00:31:25 --> 00:31:26

alaihis salaam,

00:31:26 --> 00:31:27

married Sarah.

00:31:28 --> 00:31:29

And from there,

00:31:30 --> 00:31:31

they traveled across,

00:31:32 --> 00:31:35

Iraq, the northern way, which would go into

00:31:35 --> 00:31:36

sections of

00:31:36 --> 00:31:38

lower part of, of Turkiye

00:31:39 --> 00:31:40

and Syria,

00:31:41 --> 00:31:43

right, and then down into Palestine.

00:31:44 --> 00:31:46

And so this is important to understand that

00:31:46 --> 00:31:47

Ibrahim

00:31:47 --> 00:31:50

was a person who came from Tigris, Euphrates.

00:31:51 --> 00:31:52

He did not speak Arabic.

00:31:54 --> 00:31:55

He did not speak Hebrew.

00:31:56 --> 00:31:57

He was not Jewish.

00:31:58 --> 00:32:00

He was not an Arab,

00:32:01 --> 00:32:03

so he came from this area of Iraq.

00:32:05 --> 00:32:05

And

00:32:06 --> 00:32:08

his wife also came from that area.

00:32:09 --> 00:32:11

And they managed to travel all the way

00:32:11 --> 00:32:12

over to Egypt,

00:32:13 --> 00:32:15

and there they were given,

00:32:16 --> 00:32:17

a servant.

00:32:17 --> 00:32:19

And some say that

00:32:20 --> 00:32:21

she was a princess

00:32:21 --> 00:32:24

because the Egypt had been conquered by a

00:32:24 --> 00:32:26

group called the Hyksos, who are from Iraq.

00:32:27 --> 00:32:29

And they captured the princess

00:32:29 --> 00:32:31

they gave to Ibrahim. He's one of their

00:32:31 --> 00:32:32

countrymen.

00:32:33 --> 00:32:34

They liked him somehow,

00:32:35 --> 00:32:36

and, they gave him

00:32:37 --> 00:32:38

this princess,

00:32:39 --> 00:32:40

Egyptian African woman,

00:32:41 --> 00:32:42

as a handmaiden.

00:32:43 --> 00:32:45

And later on,

00:32:45 --> 00:32:46

you know, when,

00:32:46 --> 00:32:49

his wife Sarah, it appeared that she wasn't

00:32:49 --> 00:32:49

gonna have children.

00:32:51 --> 00:32:52

She said,

00:32:52 --> 00:32:53

take Haja

00:32:54 --> 00:32:55

as your wife.

00:32:56 --> 00:32:58

And she took Haja as a wife. Now

00:32:58 --> 00:32:59

this is my favorite chart,

00:33:00 --> 00:33:01

again,

00:33:02 --> 00:33:04

that we like to go over because there's

00:33:04 --> 00:33:06

so much inside of this this chart itself.

00:33:07 --> 00:33:09

Because you're looking at the two sides

00:33:09 --> 00:33:11

of the family of Ibrahim,

00:33:12 --> 00:33:14

and you see Sarah on one side,

00:33:15 --> 00:33:16

and then you see Hajar.

00:33:17 --> 00:33:19

Okay? And then there's your verse in the

00:33:19 --> 00:33:21

so called what's left of the Bible, Genesis

00:33:22 --> 00:33:22

16:3.

00:33:24 --> 00:33:25

Okay? So this is where

00:33:26 --> 00:33:27

even the Bible is saying

00:33:28 --> 00:33:29

that,

00:33:30 --> 00:33:32

Sarah said take Hajar as your wife.

00:33:34 --> 00:33:36

And you can see in Genesis 1616

00:33:38 --> 00:33:38

that

00:33:39 --> 00:33:41

Hajar had a child called

00:33:42 --> 00:33:42

Ishmael

00:33:43 --> 00:33:44

Alaihisra, Ishmael.

00:33:45 --> 00:33:46

So the first son

00:33:47 --> 00:33:48

of Ibrahim

00:33:48 --> 00:33:49

was

00:33:49 --> 00:33:49

Ishmael.

00:33:50 --> 00:33:52

Okay? So this is very important

00:33:53 --> 00:33:53

chronologically.

00:33:55 --> 00:33:57

And it wasn't till later on,

00:33:59 --> 00:34:00

it wasn't till later

00:34:01 --> 00:34:03

that Sarah did have

00:34:04 --> 00:34:04

a child,

00:34:06 --> 00:34:08

and you'll see that in Genesis again.

00:34:09 --> 00:34:10

Genesis in,

00:34:11 --> 00:34:12

21 5.

00:34:13 --> 00:34:14

She bore a son.

00:34:15 --> 00:34:16

She was up in age

00:34:17 --> 00:34:18

somewhere between 85

00:34:19 --> 00:34:20

90 years old.

00:34:21 --> 00:34:22

People were different in those days.

00:34:23 --> 00:34:25

Barahim must be around a 100 years old.

00:34:25 --> 00:34:28

So people were different in those days, not

00:34:28 --> 00:34:30

like us. We get tired easy, and

00:34:31 --> 00:34:32

we have a lot of problems.

00:34:33 --> 00:34:34

She had the child

00:34:35 --> 00:34:37

It's Haq, Isaac. Right?

00:34:38 --> 00:34:40

But on the other side of the family,

00:34:42 --> 00:34:43

okay, this is where

00:34:45 --> 00:34:48

our Hajj story actually starts to begin.

00:34:49 --> 00:34:51

And and most people, the people in the

00:34:51 --> 00:34:54

Western world are not aware of this.

00:34:54 --> 00:34:56

They are not aware of what actually went

00:34:56 --> 00:34:57

on

00:34:57 --> 00:34:58

on the other side. And it would be

00:34:58 --> 00:35:00

it's a shock for a lot of

00:35:00 --> 00:35:02

evangelistic Christians in the churches

00:35:03 --> 00:35:03

in Texas.

00:35:04 --> 00:35:06

If if they could have this chart put

00:35:06 --> 00:35:08

in front of them, they'd be in shock

00:35:09 --> 00:35:11

Because they have no clue

00:35:12 --> 00:35:14

of this even though their own Bible is

00:35:14 --> 00:35:14

saying

00:35:15 --> 00:35:17

that that was his wife.

00:35:18 --> 00:35:19

Okay?

00:35:19 --> 00:35:20

Now

00:35:21 --> 00:35:23

he returned to the area of Palestine

00:35:25 --> 00:35:27

and made a base for his homes,

00:35:28 --> 00:35:30

and Sarah stayed in that base.

00:35:30 --> 00:35:33

And then with the guidance of Allah, he

00:35:33 --> 00:35:33

went south

00:35:34 --> 00:35:36

into a desolate valley. He found this desolate

00:35:36 --> 00:35:37

valley.

00:35:38 --> 00:35:40

And this valley is called Becca.

00:35:41 --> 00:35:43

In the Quran, it's called Becca to Mubadaka,

00:35:45 --> 00:35:46

blessed Becca.

00:35:47 --> 00:35:49

And in Psalms, again, we're looking at what's

00:35:49 --> 00:35:50

left of the Bible,

00:35:52 --> 00:35:52

846,

00:35:54 --> 00:35:56

it says, who passing through the valley of

00:35:56 --> 00:35:57

Becca,

00:35:57 --> 00:35:59

make it a well,

00:35:59 --> 00:36:02

The rain also filleth the pools.

00:36:03 --> 00:36:05

So even in what's left of the Bible,

00:36:05 --> 00:36:07

it's talking about this area,

00:36:08 --> 00:36:09

there's water in this area.

00:36:10 --> 00:36:11

So periodically,

00:36:12 --> 00:36:14

water would appear inside of this area.

00:36:16 --> 00:36:17

And this is really important,

00:36:19 --> 00:36:21

because you'll see how important the water is,

00:36:23 --> 00:36:23

as the story

00:36:24 --> 00:36:26

goes on. But this is something which is

00:36:26 --> 00:36:27

in

00:36:27 --> 00:36:30

the Bible. Now, this is surprising because a

00:36:30 --> 00:36:31

Christian might say to you, okay, where is

00:36:31 --> 00:36:32

your Hajj?

00:36:32 --> 00:36:34

Where is your your your your your story

00:36:34 --> 00:36:35

in my book?

00:36:36 --> 00:36:38

Okay. That's one of the stories that you

00:36:38 --> 00:36:39

can show them.

00:36:40 --> 00:36:41

Okay. That Becca,

00:36:42 --> 00:36:44

which is still used as Mecca in our

00:36:44 --> 00:36:44

own traditions,

00:36:45 --> 00:36:46

became Mecca.

00:36:47 --> 00:36:48

It's

00:36:48 --> 00:36:50

there. Okay. So now

00:36:50 --> 00:36:51

Becca,

00:36:51 --> 00:36:53

which later is pronounced Mecca,

00:36:55 --> 00:36:57

Ibrahim alaihis salaam is guided,

00:36:59 --> 00:37:01

to be inside of this area.

00:37:02 --> 00:37:04

But then he also gets a commandment from

00:37:04 --> 00:37:05

the creator

00:37:05 --> 00:37:07

that he has to leave.

00:37:07 --> 00:37:08

So he leaves

00:37:09 --> 00:37:10

his wife Hajjah

00:37:11 --> 00:37:13

and his son Ishmael,

00:37:14 --> 00:37:16

may Allah be pleased with them, in a

00:37:16 --> 00:37:16

desolate

00:37:17 --> 00:37:17

valley.

00:37:18 --> 00:37:19

This is difficult.

00:37:21 --> 00:37:23

And she couldn't believe it. She said, are

00:37:23 --> 00:37:24

you really leaving us?

00:37:25 --> 00:37:26

And he said, I have to leave you.

00:37:27 --> 00:37:29

But she was a resolute believer as well.

00:37:30 --> 00:37:32

And she accepted the fact

00:37:32 --> 00:37:35

that this was a commandment of God. And

00:37:35 --> 00:37:36

as Ibrahim left,

00:37:37 --> 00:37:38

and it is said that when he reached

00:37:38 --> 00:37:41

the mountains there's mountains around Mecca. When he

00:37:41 --> 00:37:42

reached the high mountain and you're sort of

00:37:42 --> 00:37:43

looking

00:37:44 --> 00:37:46

down, then he prayed to Allah. You know,

00:37:46 --> 00:37:48

that I'm leaving my family in this desolate

00:37:48 --> 00:37:49

valley.

00:37:50 --> 00:37:52

You know, please protect them and,

00:37:52 --> 00:37:55

you know, accept us. So this was very

00:37:55 --> 00:37:56

difficult for him to do,

00:37:57 --> 00:37:59

but he was commanded to do it.

00:38:00 --> 00:38:00

And

00:38:00 --> 00:38:01

down in the valley,

00:38:03 --> 00:38:04

after a short period of time,

00:38:05 --> 00:38:08

they became thirsty because Mecca is a hot

00:38:08 --> 00:38:08

place.

00:38:09 --> 00:38:11

And those who have been in Mecca, our

00:38:11 --> 00:38:13

brother here just came from Mecca,

00:38:14 --> 00:38:15

Mecca is hot.

00:38:16 --> 00:38:18

Even in the what so called winter.

00:38:19 --> 00:38:21

Right? It's still hot. In Mecca, in the

00:38:21 --> 00:38:22

summer, it is blazing

00:38:24 --> 00:38:26

hot, and there's not a lot of greenery,

00:38:26 --> 00:38:29

you know, around like you have in Canada

00:38:29 --> 00:38:30

and in other places.

00:38:31 --> 00:38:31

So

00:38:32 --> 00:38:34

she was distraught, and

00:38:34 --> 00:38:36

she wanted she needed to get water or

00:38:36 --> 00:38:38

something. So she went to this

00:38:38 --> 00:38:39

mountain of Safa,

00:38:40 --> 00:38:42

and she ran to another mountain, Marwa,

00:38:43 --> 00:38:45

to find water, to look, couldn't find anything,

00:38:46 --> 00:38:47

and she ran in between

00:38:48 --> 00:38:50

these two mountains of Safa and Marwa.

00:38:51 --> 00:38:52

She ran in between them.

00:38:52 --> 00:38:53

And,

00:38:54 --> 00:38:55

it is recorded that,

00:38:57 --> 00:38:58

when she

00:38:58 --> 00:39:00

finally reached, you know, 7th, when she found

00:39:01 --> 00:39:02

she saw that there was an angel,

00:39:03 --> 00:39:04

that was digging in the ground,

00:39:05 --> 00:39:06

you know, and,

00:39:06 --> 00:39:08

water started to come up.

00:39:09 --> 00:39:10

And she went to that area.

00:39:11 --> 00:39:13

The water was coming up. The spring was

00:39:13 --> 00:39:15

coming, and she made a little,

00:39:17 --> 00:39:18

type of tub,

00:39:19 --> 00:39:20

a basin,

00:39:21 --> 00:39:22

you know, to catch the water.

00:39:23 --> 00:39:25

Okay? And so this became

00:39:25 --> 00:39:27

the well of Zamzam.

00:39:28 --> 00:39:29

This is the well of Zamzam.

00:39:31 --> 00:39:32

And that water,

00:39:32 --> 00:39:34

again, this is what the Psalms was talking

00:39:34 --> 00:39:35

about,

00:39:35 --> 00:39:35

Becca,

00:39:37 --> 00:39:39

The pools of water that can possibly come,

00:39:39 --> 00:39:41

you know, out of this area.

00:39:41 --> 00:39:43

And so what she did was,

00:39:44 --> 00:39:46

and you'll see it in your Hajj,

00:39:46 --> 00:39:48

what she did was

00:39:49 --> 00:39:51

looking for water. She ran it between

00:39:52 --> 00:39:53

the two mountains

00:39:54 --> 00:39:54

7 times.

00:39:55 --> 00:39:56

Okay?

00:39:57 --> 00:40:00

So this is not a action of prophet

00:40:00 --> 00:40:02

Muhammad, peace and blessings. He didn't make this

00:40:02 --> 00:40:02

up.

00:40:02 --> 00:40:04

This goes back

00:40:04 --> 00:40:06

to the time of Ibrahim alaihis salam, and

00:40:06 --> 00:40:09

you're talking, you know, way back in 1,500

00:40:09 --> 00:40:10

BC.

00:40:10 --> 00:40:12

So so you're going back,

00:40:13 --> 00:40:14

in time.

00:40:14 --> 00:40:16

And the valley

00:40:17 --> 00:40:18

became very fertile.

00:40:20 --> 00:40:23

Water is now flowing. And the local Arab

00:40:23 --> 00:40:23

tribes,

00:40:25 --> 00:40:27

who would which moving along,

00:40:28 --> 00:40:31

they were able to detect with birds

00:40:31 --> 00:40:32

that there's water

00:40:33 --> 00:40:35

in this valley. It wasn't known for water,

00:40:35 --> 00:40:37

but the birds were flying toward the valley.

00:40:38 --> 00:40:39

So they went

00:40:39 --> 00:40:41

there, and they settled, in the valley,

00:40:42 --> 00:40:43

itself. These are Arabs

00:40:44 --> 00:40:46

who came from the south from Jordan.

00:40:48 --> 00:40:49

K? And,

00:40:50 --> 00:40:51

Ibrahim,

00:40:51 --> 00:40:52

alaihis salam,

00:40:53 --> 00:40:55

after a period of time, he came back.

00:40:57 --> 00:40:58

So he he returned,

00:41:00 --> 00:41:00

and,

00:41:01 --> 00:41:02

he had another

00:41:03 --> 00:41:04

he had a vision.

00:41:05 --> 00:41:07

And in this vision,

00:41:08 --> 00:41:09

he was shown

00:41:09 --> 00:41:11

that he was sacrificing his son.

00:41:12 --> 00:41:14

He had to sacrifice his son.

00:41:15 --> 00:41:16

Now this is something

00:41:16 --> 00:41:18

for the average person, this is,

00:41:19 --> 00:41:20

not possible.

00:41:21 --> 00:41:22

Okay. But he was

00:41:22 --> 00:41:23

direct believer

00:41:24 --> 00:41:25

of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala,

00:41:26 --> 00:41:29

and he informed, Ismail, who was young man

00:41:29 --> 00:41:29

now,

00:41:30 --> 00:41:32

what had happened. Ishmael

00:41:33 --> 00:41:34

was really strong,

00:41:35 --> 00:41:37

and he said, carry it out.

00:41:38 --> 00:41:40

So they went toward the mount of Arafat.

00:41:41 --> 00:41:42

That's what's left

00:41:42 --> 00:41:44

of Arafat. If you go to Mecca,

00:41:45 --> 00:41:47

the white the little dots are like pilgrims

00:41:48 --> 00:41:50

that are dressed in white that are on

00:41:50 --> 00:41:51

the mount of Arafat.

00:41:52 --> 00:41:54

Okay. So they went there,

00:41:55 --> 00:41:57

in this area, this high area, it's all

00:41:57 --> 00:41:59

based on his dream, and shaytan came to

00:41:59 --> 00:41:59

him.

00:42:00 --> 00:42:03

So the devil came. And shaytan being jinni.

00:42:03 --> 00:42:06

Right? The jinn can take forms of human

00:42:06 --> 00:42:06

beings.

00:42:07 --> 00:42:09

So the jinni could took a form of

00:42:09 --> 00:42:09

a man

00:42:10 --> 00:42:11

and then tempted Ibrahim.

00:42:12 --> 00:42:14

Why you have to do this?

00:42:15 --> 00:42:16

Are you insane?

00:42:16 --> 00:42:17

That's what we'd say today.

00:42:18 --> 00:42:20

But he tempted him. You gotta sacrifice your

00:42:20 --> 00:42:21

son?

00:42:21 --> 00:42:22

That's not possible.

00:42:24 --> 00:42:24

Ibrahim,

00:42:25 --> 00:42:27

you know, to deal with this shaytan, took

00:42:27 --> 00:42:28

stones,

00:42:28 --> 00:42:29

and he stoned

00:42:30 --> 00:42:31

the devil.

00:42:31 --> 00:42:33

So this happened three times.

00:42:34 --> 00:42:37

He was seriously tempted. Now this is interesting

00:42:37 --> 00:42:38

too because those who come out of the

00:42:38 --> 00:42:39

Christian tradition,

00:42:41 --> 00:42:43

also know that Jesus was tempted by Satan

00:42:43 --> 00:42:44

as well.

00:42:45 --> 00:42:47

And that's something that if you're not in

00:42:47 --> 00:42:49

the Christian tradition, you won't know,

00:42:49 --> 00:42:51

that this type of thing. But this,

00:42:52 --> 00:42:53

type of temptation comes

00:42:54 --> 00:42:55

to many other prophets,

00:42:55 --> 00:42:56

direct temptations.

00:42:57 --> 00:42:58

Okay? So

00:42:59 --> 00:43:00

Ibrahim

00:43:01 --> 00:43:01

stoned,

00:43:03 --> 00:43:03

the devil,

00:43:06 --> 00:43:07

at 3 different places.

00:43:08 --> 00:43:08

Okay?

00:43:09 --> 00:43:09

Now

00:43:11 --> 00:43:13

he was ready to sacrifice his son.

00:43:14 --> 00:43:17

And some reports even give detail and say

00:43:17 --> 00:43:20

that he actually the son was so brave

00:43:20 --> 00:43:22

that he even said to his father, tie

00:43:22 --> 00:43:23

me down

00:43:25 --> 00:43:27

so my body does not move.

00:43:28 --> 00:43:30

And and and you can't do it right.

00:43:31 --> 00:43:34

And then even some detail said,

00:43:34 --> 00:43:36

let me face backwards.

00:43:37 --> 00:43:38

So when you sacrifice,

00:43:38 --> 00:43:40

it's kinda gruesome looking.

00:43:41 --> 00:43:43

You sack my back is here, and you

00:43:43 --> 00:43:45

sacrifice like this. Because if I'm looking at

00:43:45 --> 00:43:47

you, you're gonna lose your your strength.

00:43:48 --> 00:43:50

Okay? So he was in position to do

00:43:50 --> 00:43:51

this.

00:43:51 --> 00:43:53

The tool is in his hand.

00:43:54 --> 00:43:56

Right? And he's about to make the sacrifice.

00:43:57 --> 00:43:57

And then,

00:43:58 --> 00:43:58

miraculously,

00:43:59 --> 00:44:02

when he's about to do that, then Ishmael

00:44:03 --> 00:44:05

is is is taken out of the place,

00:44:05 --> 00:44:07

and a sheep is there, and he ends

00:44:07 --> 00:44:09

up sacrificing a sheep.

00:44:10 --> 00:44:12

So he was he was carrying this thing

00:44:12 --> 00:44:12

out.

00:44:13 --> 00:44:14

And Ishmael

00:44:15 --> 00:44:15

was sacrificing

00:44:16 --> 00:44:16

himself.

00:44:17 --> 00:44:19

That's also a great thing.

00:44:20 --> 00:44:22

It's not just taking the life, but giving

00:44:22 --> 00:44:23

your life.

00:44:24 --> 00:44:25

So Ishmael was sacrificing,

00:44:26 --> 00:44:28

you know, himself, and they passed the test,

00:44:29 --> 00:44:31

and they became the closest friends,

00:44:32 --> 00:44:35

of Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala. And their practices,

00:44:35 --> 00:44:37

what they went through,

00:44:38 --> 00:44:40

becomes the basis of monotheistic

00:44:40 --> 00:44:41

religions

00:44:42 --> 00:44:44

from their time immemorial.

00:44:44 --> 00:44:46

The sacrifice of the animals. Even if you

00:44:46 --> 00:44:47

look at,

00:44:47 --> 00:44:48

the children of Israel

00:44:49 --> 00:44:50

and you look at some of the Jewish

00:44:50 --> 00:44:51

practices

00:44:52 --> 00:44:53

coming from Moses

00:44:53 --> 00:44:56

and and Jesus, and they also have a

00:44:56 --> 00:44:56

sacrifice,

00:44:57 --> 00:45:00

you know, they you know, these are become

00:45:01 --> 00:45:02

basis,

00:45:02 --> 00:45:04

the basis of monotheistic practices.

00:45:05 --> 00:45:07

Okay? And this is a picture of present

00:45:07 --> 00:45:08

day Mina.

00:45:09 --> 00:45:12

So this is in Saudi Arabia today. Of

00:45:12 --> 00:45:13

course, the white is now tents and

00:45:14 --> 00:45:17

overpasses and, you know, whatever. And Mina is

00:45:17 --> 00:45:19

the place right outside of Mecca.

00:45:20 --> 00:45:22

Next week, inshallah, we're gonna go through,

00:45:23 --> 00:45:24

the Hajj with you,

00:45:24 --> 00:45:26

you know, step by step. But today, we

00:45:26 --> 00:45:28

want to learn about the spirit of the

00:45:28 --> 00:45:29

Hajj.

00:45:30 --> 00:45:32

What is actually in back of the Hajj

00:45:32 --> 00:45:33

itself?

00:45:34 --> 00:45:36

Okay. What is it based upon?

00:45:36 --> 00:45:38

And this gives you,

00:45:39 --> 00:45:39

your basis.

00:45:41 --> 00:45:41

And

00:45:43 --> 00:45:45

so these are the different places,

00:45:46 --> 00:45:48

there. We're gonna look in in in in

00:45:48 --> 00:45:50

in more details next week,

00:45:50 --> 00:45:52

you know, at it because now you have

00:45:52 --> 00:45:55

where the the the Haram is. That's Mecca.

00:45:55 --> 00:45:55

Right?

00:45:56 --> 00:45:58

And so from there, you can go,

00:45:59 --> 00:46:01

your numbers are saying number 2.

00:46:01 --> 00:46:02

You would go to Mina.

00:46:03 --> 00:46:04

Okay. That's outside.

00:46:05 --> 00:46:07

And then number 3,

00:46:07 --> 00:46:09

you'd walk along and you go to the

00:46:09 --> 00:46:11

plain of Arafa.

00:46:12 --> 00:46:14

Okay. And then from there,

00:46:14 --> 00:46:16

on your way back to Mecca, and we'll

00:46:16 --> 00:46:19

go to this next week inshallah, to Muzdalifa,

00:46:20 --> 00:46:22

and then you return to Mecca.

00:46:23 --> 00:46:25

So these are like your movements

00:46:26 --> 00:46:27

that that that you make,

00:46:28 --> 00:46:30

during the actual Hajj pilgrimage itself.

00:46:32 --> 00:46:33

People walk. People ride.

00:46:35 --> 00:46:37

It's it's it's something which

00:46:38 --> 00:46:39

will stay with you for the rest of

00:46:39 --> 00:46:42

your life. It's an experience that everybody

00:46:42 --> 00:46:44

should have, and

00:46:44 --> 00:46:46

we are actually encouraged strongly,

00:46:47 --> 00:46:48

to do it.

00:46:48 --> 00:46:49

K?

00:46:49 --> 00:46:52

So and and Mecca, of course, this is,

00:46:52 --> 00:46:54

you know, a shot of what Mecca

00:46:54 --> 00:46:56

would have looked like

00:46:56 --> 00:46:59

way back in the ancient time. Very simple,

00:46:59 --> 00:47:02

you know, humble town that is there in

00:47:02 --> 00:47:03

the valley.

00:47:03 --> 00:47:05

And Ibrahim alaihis salaam,

00:47:06 --> 00:47:07

of course, built the Kaaba.

00:47:08 --> 00:47:09

Okay? So it was basically a house of

00:47:09 --> 00:47:10

worship,

00:47:11 --> 00:47:13

that is there, and now it is the

00:47:13 --> 00:47:15

the the direction of our prayers.

00:47:16 --> 00:47:17

Okay? And this is the well of Zamzam

00:47:18 --> 00:47:20

that is still there today. It is now

00:47:20 --> 00:47:21

organized

00:47:21 --> 00:47:22

and mechanized,

00:47:23 --> 00:47:25

but before, it was just a well.

00:47:25 --> 00:47:26

Okay?

00:47:26 --> 00:47:27

So

00:47:27 --> 00:47:30

I want to leave you, there with this.

00:47:30 --> 00:47:32

This is the spirit of the Hajj.

00:47:33 --> 00:47:34

This is the spirit of what we are

00:47:34 --> 00:47:35

going through,

00:47:35 --> 00:47:37

and we are in the the the 10

00:47:37 --> 00:47:38

days of,

00:47:39 --> 00:47:39

Duhidja,

00:47:41 --> 00:47:42

trying to do as much good as we

00:47:42 --> 00:47:43

possibly can do and

00:47:44 --> 00:47:46

moving toward next weekend.

00:47:47 --> 00:47:49

And, inshallah, next Friday, we'll be able to

00:47:49 --> 00:47:50

talk in more details

00:47:51 --> 00:47:54

because it'll be right before Arafat Day,

00:47:54 --> 00:47:56

that we'll have, you know, the class,

00:47:56 --> 00:47:58

you know, and then,

00:47:59 --> 00:47:59

go into

00:48:00 --> 00:48:02

some discussion about the Eid,

00:48:02 --> 00:48:04

Insha'Allah next week. So I wanna open up

00:48:04 --> 00:48:06

the floor for any general questions,

00:48:07 --> 00:48:08

that anybody has

00:48:09 --> 00:48:11

concerning the spirit of the Hajj,

00:48:11 --> 00:48:14

and what is going on during this time.

00:48:14 --> 00:48:15

Floor is open.

00:48:18 --> 00:48:19

Sheikh, I have a question. Okay.

00:48:21 --> 00:48:22

Okay. It says, Assalamu alaikum. My question is,

00:48:22 --> 00:48:25

I'm living with my mother who doesn't believe

00:48:25 --> 00:48:26

in Allah.

00:48:26 --> 00:48:28

She now has a small block in her

00:48:28 --> 00:48:30

house. And this is me. The angels will

00:48:30 --> 00:48:32

not enter my home or accompany me in

00:48:32 --> 00:48:33

prayer.

00:48:33 --> 00:48:34

Okay.

00:48:35 --> 00:48:37

May Allah, you know, guide the question is

00:48:37 --> 00:48:39

that, you know, her mother doesn't believe in

00:48:39 --> 00:48:41

Allah and she's trying to give Dawah and

00:48:41 --> 00:48:43

the mother has a dog.

00:48:43 --> 00:48:45

So, what does this mean in terms of

00:48:45 --> 00:48:48

the house? It is, we we we pray

00:48:48 --> 00:48:50

that Allah would guide your mother, inshallah, into

00:48:50 --> 00:48:51

a state of Islam.

00:48:52 --> 00:48:54

Reality is that angels will not enter a

00:48:54 --> 00:48:56

house that where dogs are inside.

00:48:56 --> 00:48:57

That is the reality.

00:48:58 --> 00:49:01

In terms of living with a dog,

00:49:04 --> 00:49:05

Muslims have dogs.

00:49:06 --> 00:49:08

In some cultures, people are Muslims are, like,

00:49:08 --> 00:49:10

afraid of dogs. They run away from dogs.

00:49:11 --> 00:49:13

But actually, that's not origin that's not Islamic.

00:49:15 --> 00:49:16

Muslims have dogs,

00:49:17 --> 00:49:18

and you'll see within our traditions

00:49:19 --> 00:49:21

that the dogs, especially with, with flocks,

00:49:22 --> 00:49:24

with sheep and goats, as a shepherd, you

00:49:24 --> 00:49:25

have dogs who protect.

00:49:26 --> 00:49:28

You also have hunting dogs.

00:49:28 --> 00:49:31

And there are you know, you you shoot,

00:49:31 --> 00:49:33

you know, a bird, and the dog, you

00:49:33 --> 00:49:35

know, secures, you know, the bird for you.

00:49:35 --> 00:49:38

And there's even discussions if the dog comes,

00:49:38 --> 00:49:40

you know, what do you do? So we

00:49:40 --> 00:49:41

have hunting dogs.

00:49:41 --> 00:49:43

We have dogs to protect,

00:49:44 --> 00:49:45

you know, our homes,

00:49:46 --> 00:49:47

to protect our businesses.

00:49:48 --> 00:49:50

But the difference is we don't have dogs

00:49:50 --> 00:49:52

living in our house.

00:49:53 --> 00:49:55

We don't have dogs like children

00:49:57 --> 00:49:59

who inherit our wealth and who sleep in

00:49:59 --> 00:50:00

our bed.

00:50:01 --> 00:50:02

We don't.

00:50:03 --> 00:50:05

And part of that is, of course, the

00:50:05 --> 00:50:05

angels.

00:50:06 --> 00:50:08

But another thing is the fact that the

00:50:08 --> 00:50:09

dog itself,

00:50:09 --> 00:50:10

you know, is

00:50:11 --> 00:50:14

dogs have very good qualities. Dogs are very

00:50:14 --> 00:50:16

loyal. They're more loyal than some people too.

00:50:17 --> 00:50:18

So dogs are very loyal.

00:50:19 --> 00:50:20

But the reality is

00:50:21 --> 00:50:22

that the dog

00:50:23 --> 00:50:25

certain dogs, especially the black one with the

00:50:25 --> 00:50:25

white spot,

00:50:26 --> 00:50:27

an evil

00:50:27 --> 00:50:30

djinni, a demon can come inside the dog.

00:50:31 --> 00:50:32

Okay? So dogs

00:50:32 --> 00:50:33

can

00:50:34 --> 00:50:35

evil can inhabit the dogs.

00:50:36 --> 00:50:36

Secondly,

00:50:37 --> 00:50:39

the tongue of the dog

00:50:40 --> 00:50:42

is considered to be impure,

00:50:42 --> 00:50:43

negeus.

00:50:44 --> 00:50:45

It is the tongue.

00:50:45 --> 00:50:47

And if you look at a dog that

00:50:47 --> 00:50:48

is panting,

00:50:49 --> 00:50:50

the dog is panting,

00:50:51 --> 00:50:53

the we sweat, and through our sweat,

00:50:54 --> 00:50:55

impurities are released

00:50:56 --> 00:50:57

from our bodies.

00:50:58 --> 00:50:59

The dog's impurities

00:50:59 --> 00:51:01

come out of the saliva of the mouth.

00:51:03 --> 00:51:03

So literally,

00:51:04 --> 00:51:04

the dog's

00:51:06 --> 00:51:08

impurity is there in the lips.

00:51:08 --> 00:51:10

And also, it's a little graphic, but it's

00:51:10 --> 00:51:11

the reality.

00:51:11 --> 00:51:14

The dogs also lick their private pots

00:51:14 --> 00:51:15

constantly.

00:51:16 --> 00:51:18

Okay? So that if you,

00:51:19 --> 00:51:22

are if the dogs lick in your face,

00:51:23 --> 00:51:24

right, you got a problem.

00:51:25 --> 00:51:26

Okay? That's not clean.

00:51:27 --> 00:51:29

Even logically, it's not clean.

00:51:30 --> 00:51:32

Okay? That me that does not mean the

00:51:32 --> 00:51:33

dog is evil.

00:51:34 --> 00:51:36

But you have to learn how to deal

00:51:36 --> 00:51:38

with the dog, and dog's intelligent enough to

00:51:38 --> 00:51:39

know

00:51:39 --> 00:51:41

that if they they don't if if for

00:51:41 --> 00:51:42

a Muslim dog,

00:51:43 --> 00:51:46

you know, it doesn't lick everybody and jump

00:51:46 --> 00:51:47

on top of everybody.

00:51:47 --> 00:51:49

Right? It is taken care of. It is

00:51:49 --> 00:51:50

loved,

00:51:51 --> 00:51:53

but it has a certain duty that it

00:51:53 --> 00:51:53

does.

00:51:54 --> 00:51:56

Right? And it lives its lifestyle.

00:51:56 --> 00:51:57

So that's the difference

00:51:58 --> 00:51:59

in our lifestyle

00:51:59 --> 00:52:02

in terms of dogs. And we can only

00:52:02 --> 00:52:04

pray, you know, that Allah, you know, would,

00:52:04 --> 00:52:06

you know, bless the sisters,

00:52:06 --> 00:52:07

you know, mother,

00:52:07 --> 00:52:08

you know, with Islam,

00:52:09 --> 00:52:11

at some point in her life. Question.

00:52:11 --> 00:52:14

Floor is open. What is significance of Arafat,

00:52:14 --> 00:52:15

and why is missing it important?

00:52:16 --> 00:52:19

What is the significance of Arafah? This is

00:52:19 --> 00:52:21

the most important time of the year. It's

00:52:21 --> 00:52:23

the essence of the pilgrimage itself.

00:52:24 --> 00:52:24

And the prophet

00:52:25 --> 00:52:27

said, Al Hajj Arafah, that the essence of

00:52:27 --> 00:52:29

pilgrimage is Arafat.

00:52:29 --> 00:52:33

And on that mountain, 9th day, that is

00:52:33 --> 00:52:34

the closest to Allah

00:52:35 --> 00:52:37

that people can be in terms of their

00:52:37 --> 00:52:38

prayers being answered.

00:52:39 --> 00:52:40

That's why that's why we wanna go to

00:52:40 --> 00:52:43

Arafat too because you wanna be in that

00:52:43 --> 00:52:43

valley

00:52:44 --> 00:52:46

on that 9th day to have your you

00:52:46 --> 00:52:47

know, to make your prayers

00:52:48 --> 00:52:50

for your family, for your friends, for yourself,

00:52:50 --> 00:52:53

for anything in your life. You wanna be

00:52:53 --> 00:52:53

able to do that,

00:52:54 --> 00:52:55

at least once in a lifetime.

00:52:56 --> 00:52:57

So it is a sacred time,

00:52:58 --> 00:53:00

you know, for us. And, you know, we

00:53:00 --> 00:53:02

we we fast if we can't make it

00:53:02 --> 00:53:04

there. But if you don't do it, it's

00:53:04 --> 00:53:05

not a sin.

00:53:05 --> 00:53:07

If you don't do it, you just missed,

00:53:08 --> 00:53:09

some great blessings.

00:53:10 --> 00:53:10

K?

00:53:11 --> 00:53:13

Floor is open for any questions.

00:53:14 --> 00:53:16

Was it Ismael alaihi salaam who was kicking

00:53:16 --> 00:53:18

the sand and sending water came out or

00:53:18 --> 00:53:20

an angel that You know, there there's different

00:53:20 --> 00:53:22

reports. You know, the boy is digging in

00:53:22 --> 00:53:23

the ground,

00:53:23 --> 00:53:25

kicking the sand. There's reports saying that the

00:53:25 --> 00:53:26

angel,

00:53:26 --> 00:53:28

you know, kicked in the sand. There's different

00:53:28 --> 00:53:28

reports,

00:53:29 --> 00:53:30

that you'll get,

00:53:31 --> 00:53:33

about, you know, how the

00:53:33 --> 00:53:35

the water actually came. Allah knows best. The

00:53:35 --> 00:53:37

child is there. The angel is there.

00:53:38 --> 00:53:39

Allah knows best.

00:53:40 --> 00:53:42

Floor is open. Does the word for Hajj

00:53:42 --> 00:53:43

come from Hajj?

00:53:44 --> 00:53:44

No.

00:53:45 --> 00:53:45

Hajj

00:53:47 --> 00:53:48

is Hajja

00:53:48 --> 00:53:48

Hajja.

00:53:50 --> 00:53:52

So it's it's comes from that verb,

00:53:52 --> 00:53:54

and Hajja is Hajja Ra.

00:53:55 --> 00:53:57

So it's coming from a a 3,

00:53:58 --> 00:54:01

leaded verb. It's different. So it's not the

00:54:01 --> 00:54:02

same verb.

00:54:04 --> 00:54:05

No. Floor is open,

00:54:05 --> 00:54:07

for any questions. Yes.

00:54:07 --> 00:54:10

2 questions. 1, are there any other animals

00:54:10 --> 00:54:13

that are known to inhabit genes of dogs?

00:54:18 --> 00:54:20

The question is, you know, do the jinn

00:54:21 --> 00:54:23

demon spirits inhabit other animals as well?

00:54:24 --> 00:54:26

There are other animals possibly,

00:54:27 --> 00:54:28

that it can inhabit,

00:54:29 --> 00:54:31

like the the the scorpion.

00:54:31 --> 00:54:33

It can it can inhabit the the scorpion

00:54:34 --> 00:54:35

and also snakes.

00:54:37 --> 00:54:39

So if the snake is inside of your

00:54:39 --> 00:54:39

house,

00:54:41 --> 00:54:43

and then also there's certain lizards

00:54:45 --> 00:54:47

that that this that it it can inhabit.

00:54:48 --> 00:54:51

It's mentioned in the text about the wazakh,

00:54:51 --> 00:54:53

this wazakh, lizard.

00:54:53 --> 00:54:55

Allah knows that that's the only one.

00:54:56 --> 00:54:58

But this lizard, if it comes if it's

00:54:58 --> 00:55:00

outside, it's alright. But if the lizard's in

00:55:00 --> 00:55:01

your house,

00:55:02 --> 00:55:03

then you have a problem. And I lived

00:55:03 --> 00:55:04

in Medina,

00:55:05 --> 00:55:07

and so we actually had Wazak that came

00:55:07 --> 00:55:08

in the house.

00:55:09 --> 00:55:11

And it makes a noise

00:55:12 --> 00:55:14

makes a noise like that.

00:55:15 --> 00:55:16

Caribbean people,

00:55:16 --> 00:55:18

you know, we have lizards that are there.

00:55:18 --> 00:55:20

If you live in tropical climates, you have

00:55:20 --> 00:55:22

lizards. West Africa has lizards.

00:55:24 --> 00:55:26

And the lizard is a creation of Allah.

00:55:26 --> 00:55:28

But if it comes in your house

00:55:29 --> 00:55:31

or if a snake comes in your house,

00:55:31 --> 00:55:33

then you should say to it,

00:55:33 --> 00:55:34

leave.

00:55:35 --> 00:55:36

You should make it leave.

00:55:38 --> 00:55:40

Okay? And let it leave.

00:55:41 --> 00:55:43

This is a good practice with all animals

00:55:44 --> 00:55:45

to to take a stance because

00:55:46 --> 00:55:48

animals have sense, and you don't know what's

00:55:48 --> 00:55:49

inside the animal.

00:55:50 --> 00:55:52

I recently moved into a new house,

00:55:52 --> 00:55:54

and there's a ravine in back of our

00:55:54 --> 00:55:56

house, and I was taking out, you know,

00:55:56 --> 00:55:58

you know, my my garbage and left the

00:55:58 --> 00:55:59

door open

00:56:00 --> 00:56:02

and then came back into the main room.

00:56:03 --> 00:56:05

And I heard this noise. I had just

00:56:05 --> 00:56:06

been in the house for 2 weeks. Right?

00:56:07 --> 00:56:08

And I heard this noise, and I turned

00:56:08 --> 00:56:10

on the light. And there was a raccoon

00:56:11 --> 00:56:13

in my house, this big,

00:56:14 --> 00:56:15

this big.

00:56:16 --> 00:56:18

And it was climbing up the curtain. Right?

00:56:19 --> 00:56:21

You know? And I came inside,

00:56:21 --> 00:56:23

and I looked at I looked at the

00:56:23 --> 00:56:26

raccoon. And probably she she looked at me.

00:56:26 --> 00:56:27

You know, we looked at each other as

00:56:27 --> 00:56:29

man versus beast. Right?

00:56:30 --> 00:56:31

You know, and so I said, okay. Fear

00:56:31 --> 00:56:33

Allah. You know, you're teaching all these people

00:56:33 --> 00:56:34

about.

00:56:35 --> 00:56:36

Right? Fear Allah.

00:56:36 --> 00:56:38

Okay? So I so I thought about what

00:56:38 --> 00:56:40

I used to do with this wazak. Right?

00:56:40 --> 00:56:42

This is an animal. It's a creation of

00:56:42 --> 00:56:44

Allah. Don't get scared. Right?

00:56:44 --> 00:56:46

Okay. So I oh, I I I moved

00:56:46 --> 00:56:47

toward it because my door was on the

00:56:47 --> 00:56:49

side. So I moved toward,

00:56:49 --> 00:56:51

and the raccoon posed for fighting.

00:56:52 --> 00:56:54

And I opened up the door, and I

00:56:54 --> 00:56:55

went over to the side,

00:56:56 --> 00:56:57

turned off the light in back of me.

00:56:58 --> 00:57:00

And I looked at the raccoon, and I

00:57:00 --> 00:57:01

said, leave.

00:57:03 --> 00:57:06

Leave. Doesn't like that. Raccoons watching me. Right?

00:57:07 --> 00:57:09

So I said, like, leave. Right?

00:57:09 --> 00:57:11

So the raccoon said, okay. And and the

00:57:11 --> 00:57:14

raccoon just put its tail between its legs,

00:57:14 --> 00:57:16

and it walked out the door.

00:57:17 --> 00:57:18

And I and I shut the door.

00:57:19 --> 00:57:21

Then I fainted. You know?

00:57:23 --> 00:57:25

You know, but, you know, again, if the

00:57:25 --> 00:57:26

creature's in your house,

00:57:27 --> 00:57:28

right,

00:57:28 --> 00:57:29

talk to it

00:57:30 --> 00:57:31

first.

00:57:32 --> 00:57:34

And then if it's the Wazakh,

00:57:34 --> 00:57:36

you have to get it out. But I

00:57:36 --> 00:57:37

would not advise

00:57:39 --> 00:57:41

using a I would not advise fighting a

00:57:41 --> 00:57:41

raccoon.

00:57:42 --> 00:57:45

Right? Let it find its way out because

00:57:45 --> 00:57:47

raccoons are extremely intention,

00:57:47 --> 00:57:49

intelligent, especially Canadian raccoons.

00:57:50 --> 00:57:52

Canadian raccoons have rights according to the law,

00:57:53 --> 00:57:54

and I think they know that. Right?

00:57:56 --> 00:57:57

And where I live in Scarborough by the

00:57:57 --> 00:57:58

ravine,

00:57:58 --> 00:58:01

that used to be the raccoon's property. Right?

00:58:01 --> 00:58:03

And we moved into its territory.

00:58:04 --> 00:58:06

So we're actually living in its land.

00:58:07 --> 00:58:09

Okay? So you gotta have respect,

00:58:09 --> 00:58:11

you know, for the creation of Allah.

00:58:12 --> 00:58:14

Now floor is open for any other general

00:58:14 --> 00:58:15

questions. Yeah.

00:58:16 --> 00:58:17

My other question,

00:58:17 --> 00:58:20

what are the benefits of having angels in

00:58:20 --> 00:58:20

your home?

00:58:21 --> 00:58:22

The benefits, of course,

00:58:23 --> 00:58:25

this is something which is unseen,

00:58:25 --> 00:58:27

but angels can protect.

00:58:28 --> 00:58:28

Angels,

00:58:30 --> 00:58:31

you know, are forces,

00:58:31 --> 00:58:34

and you don't know when an angel can

00:58:34 --> 00:58:35

come to protect you.

00:58:36 --> 00:58:38

Maybe an angel helped me with that that

00:58:38 --> 00:58:38

raccoon.

00:58:39 --> 00:58:42

You don't know. So it's better to,

00:58:42 --> 00:58:43

you know,

00:58:44 --> 00:58:46

have that, you know, blessing from Allah, you

00:58:46 --> 00:58:48

know, to be around us. But angels are

00:58:48 --> 00:58:51

unseen, so we don't really know.

00:58:52 --> 00:58:54

But it's always good to have that extra

00:58:54 --> 00:58:56

blessing that is there. Now

00:58:57 --> 00:58:59

What are the benefits of Samsung water? Is

00:58:59 --> 00:59:00

it being sold

00:59:00 --> 00:59:01

in in supermarkets

00:59:02 --> 00:59:02

and stuff?

00:59:03 --> 00:59:05

So so the the Zamzam and we'll talk

00:59:05 --> 00:59:07

about Zamzam a little bit more next week,

00:59:07 --> 00:59:10

but the prophet said, you know, Zamzam is

00:59:10 --> 00:59:12

will give is is is is for the

00:59:12 --> 00:59:13

one who who takes it.

00:59:14 --> 00:59:16

So you actually can make a dua

00:59:16 --> 00:59:19

and and get good blessings from this,

00:59:20 --> 00:59:22

drinking Zamzam and making a prayer. It can

00:59:22 --> 00:59:23

be answered by Allah.

00:59:24 --> 00:59:27

So the person gets Zamzam water. Normally, when

00:59:27 --> 00:59:29

we drink water, we're supposed to sit down.

00:59:30 --> 00:59:32

The sunnah is the way of the prophet

00:59:32 --> 00:59:34

is do not eat and drink standing.

00:59:35 --> 00:59:37

Right? You eat and drink sitting.

00:59:38 --> 00:59:39

Okay. But when you zamzamwada,

00:59:40 --> 00:59:42

the sunnah is to stand

00:59:42 --> 00:59:43

and face

00:59:43 --> 00:59:44

Mecca.

00:59:45 --> 00:59:47

And you take a cup of it, and

00:59:47 --> 00:59:48

you drink it in one gulp.

00:59:50 --> 00:59:52

Normally, the sunnah way to drink out of

00:59:52 --> 00:59:55

a cup would be 3 3 gulps and,

00:59:57 --> 00:59:58

sitting down.

00:59:58 --> 01:00:00

But in this case, you stand facing Mecca

01:00:00 --> 01:00:02

and you drink 1 gulp.

01:00:03 --> 01:00:04

And there are great blessings,

01:00:06 --> 01:00:08

you know, in this your prayers can be

01:00:08 --> 01:00:08

answered.

01:00:09 --> 01:00:11

So so Zamzam water, it's a pure type

01:00:11 --> 01:00:12

of water,

01:00:13 --> 01:00:14

there.

01:00:15 --> 01:00:17

Some people use it for other things. Allah

01:00:17 --> 01:00:17

knows best.

01:00:18 --> 01:00:20

I've never heard any authentic tradition say that

01:00:20 --> 01:00:23

it has healing qualities in it. You know,

01:00:23 --> 01:00:25

but it is a purified water,

01:00:25 --> 01:00:27

you know, to take, especially somebody who's very

01:00:27 --> 01:00:29

sick. You know, it's good to to drink

01:00:29 --> 01:00:30

this water and to make prayers,

01:00:31 --> 01:00:32

you know, with the water.

01:00:33 --> 01:00:34

Thumbs up.

01:00:36 --> 01:00:38

What should you do if you would make

01:00:38 --> 01:00:40

a mistake while you're praying? Should you just,

01:00:40 --> 01:00:42

like, correct yourself and continue, or should you

01:00:42 --> 01:00:45

just stop and then restart the prayer? Yeah.

01:00:45 --> 01:00:46

So so this goes this is a question

01:00:46 --> 01:00:48

about prayer. If you make a mistake while

01:00:48 --> 01:00:49

you're praying,

01:00:50 --> 01:00:52

there's some details in that

01:00:52 --> 01:00:55

that, if if you make a small mistake,

01:00:56 --> 01:00:58

you know, in the prayer that is not

01:00:58 --> 01:00:59

one of your major

01:01:00 --> 01:01:01

actions.

01:01:02 --> 01:01:04

Like your major action,

01:01:05 --> 01:01:06

of, you know, missing a whole,

01:01:07 --> 01:01:08

your rakat.

01:01:09 --> 01:01:10

If you do something small,

01:01:10 --> 01:01:11

you can continue.

01:01:12 --> 01:01:14

Like for instance, you you may have forgot

01:01:14 --> 01:01:14

to read,

01:01:15 --> 01:01:17

you know, a chapter with the open with

01:01:17 --> 01:01:20

the fatiha. You may have forgotten that.

01:01:20 --> 01:01:22

Or you may have forgotten to say when

01:01:22 --> 01:01:23

you're sitting

01:01:23 --> 01:01:24

certain part of your,

01:01:25 --> 01:01:27

you know, your your dua

01:01:27 --> 01:01:28

and sitting,

01:01:29 --> 01:01:30

you just continue.

01:01:31 --> 01:01:33

But if you miss a whole rakat, a

01:01:33 --> 01:01:34

whole section,

01:01:35 --> 01:01:37

then in that case, you need to

01:01:37 --> 01:01:40

stand up and make the rakat over. And

01:01:40 --> 01:01:42

then you make 2 extra prostrations,

01:01:43 --> 01:01:44

you know, at the

01:01:44 --> 01:01:46

end, because of the mistake.

01:01:47 --> 01:01:49

Okay? So it's it's it's it's a little

01:01:49 --> 01:01:51

complicated. You have to go to a salat

01:01:51 --> 01:01:52

book to know which one. But as long

01:01:52 --> 01:01:53

as it's not a major

01:01:54 --> 01:01:55

section of your prayers,

01:01:55 --> 01:01:57

then, you know, you don't have to do

01:01:57 --> 01:01:59

the prayer over again. You can continue.

01:02:09 --> 01:02:11

When you're in Musa Dali Fuq. Okay. Next

01:02:11 --> 01:02:13

week, we're gonna look at it in more

01:02:13 --> 01:02:15

detail. But when you're in the place where

01:02:15 --> 01:02:16

they stone the shaitan,

01:02:17 --> 01:02:20

then, you know, it's Bismillah Allahu Akbar.

01:02:20 --> 01:02:21

So it's basically

01:02:22 --> 01:02:22

Bismillah

01:02:23 --> 01:02:24

Allahu Akbar, and then you stop.

01:02:25 --> 01:02:26

And

01:02:26 --> 01:02:28

next week, we'll look at that with a

01:02:28 --> 01:02:29

little more details,

01:02:30 --> 01:02:32

you know, there in the actual performance,

01:02:33 --> 01:02:35

you know, of how to do the Hajj

01:02:35 --> 01:02:35

itself.

01:02:37 --> 01:02:37

K?

01:02:38 --> 01:02:40

Any other any any other general questions, we

01:02:40 --> 01:02:41

have

01:02:41 --> 01:02:44

concerning, the spirit of of the pilgrimage,

01:02:45 --> 01:02:46

and

01:02:47 --> 01:02:48

what is coming?

01:02:49 --> 01:02:50

Nothing online?

01:02:53 --> 01:02:55

Does Sanzam water mean stop stop?

01:02:56 --> 01:02:57

Does it mean stop stop? Does sense on

01:02:57 --> 01:02:59

water mean stop stop?

01:02:59 --> 01:03:01

I'm I'm not sure. It is a good

01:03:01 --> 01:03:01

question.

01:03:02 --> 01:03:03

I don't

01:03:04 --> 01:03:06

from my understanding, Allah knows best what it

01:03:06 --> 01:03:07

actually means linguistically.

01:03:09 --> 01:03:10

I'm I'm not actually sure. I'll I'll I'll

01:03:10 --> 01:03:12

look that up for you, what it actually

01:03:12 --> 01:03:13

means.

01:03:14 --> 01:03:14

Lana's best.

01:03:15 --> 01:03:18

So inshallah, we will we'll continue on. Our

01:03:18 --> 01:03:19

question? Yeah.

01:03:20 --> 01:03:21

My parents

01:03:22 --> 01:03:23

have coal,

01:03:23 --> 01:03:26

and I used to before. Like, it was

01:03:26 --> 01:03:26

mine.

01:03:27 --> 01:03:28

But I don't wear it anymore, but I

01:03:28 --> 01:03:30

have to pay for it. Or

01:03:30 --> 01:03:32

They have what is it? Gold.

01:03:33 --> 01:03:35

Oh, gold. I don't wear it anymore, and

01:03:35 --> 01:03:37

it's still with them. But,

01:03:38 --> 01:03:40

like, how would I go about it? But

01:03:40 --> 01:03:41

the gold is your property

01:03:41 --> 01:03:42

or their property?

01:03:43 --> 01:03:45

It's in the stage of handing off right

01:03:45 --> 01:03:46

now. So But but it's but it's their

01:03:46 --> 01:03:48

it's their property? I think it might be

01:03:48 --> 01:03:50

theirs. Well, then it's not yours. Okay. But

01:03:50 --> 01:03:52

if it were mine, it would be 2

01:03:52 --> 01:03:53

and a half percent? If if it's yours

01:03:53 --> 01:03:55

then you would pay, you know, on that.

01:03:55 --> 01:03:57

Yeah. Once you had it for a year.

01:03:57 --> 01:03:58

Okay.

01:03:59 --> 01:04:00

Yeah.

01:04:00 --> 01:04:03

So we'll we'll close the general class, you

01:04:03 --> 01:04:05

know, now, and inshallah, we will continue on,

01:04:05 --> 01:04:07

you know, for our class next week. In

01:04:07 --> 01:04:08

any event,

01:04:09 --> 01:04:11

if we're able to come together or not,

01:04:11 --> 01:04:13
