Imam Bukhari narrates for us that the Prophet

00:02:37 --> 00:02:39

alaihis salatu wa sallam on that day

00:02:41 --> 00:02:42

was standing on Arafah,

00:02:43 --> 00:02:45

and the way we know this is because

00:02:45 --> 00:02:47

Sayyidina Umar ibn al Khattab years later was

00:02:47 --> 00:02:48

told

00:02:50 --> 00:02:51

that had this verse

00:02:53 --> 00:02:54

been revealed

00:02:54 --> 00:02:56

to a different faith, they would have made

00:02:56 --> 00:02:58

that day Eid for themselves.

00:02:59 --> 00:03:00

They would have made that day a day

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

of celebration for themselves.

00:03:02 --> 00:03:04

So So Sayyidina Nurul Salaam, he looked and

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

he said,

00:03:15 --> 00:03:17

I know exactly where the Prophet was when

00:03:17 --> 00:03:20

this was revealed. When it was revealed, where

00:03:20 --> 00:03:21

it was revealed, where I was when it

00:03:21 --> 00:03:23

was I know exactly when it was. And

00:03:23 --> 00:03:25

it was revealed on the day of Friday,

00:03:25 --> 00:03:27

on the day of Arafah, while the prophet

00:03:27 --> 00:03:30

alaihis salatu wasallam was standing in Arafah. And

00:03:30 --> 00:03:32

he says, and I myself was standing with

00:03:32 --> 00:03:33

him on Arafah.

00:03:34 --> 00:03:35

The day of Arafah which is going to

00:03:35 --> 00:03:36

be tomorrow.

00:03:37 --> 00:03:39

It is the day that Allah Subhanahu Wa

00:03:39 --> 00:03:40

Ta'ala concluded

00:03:40 --> 00:03:41

this faith.

00:03:41 --> 00:03:44

He completed it. The best night of the

00:03:44 --> 00:03:45

year is the night of 'Adir when it

00:03:45 --> 00:03:46

all began,

00:03:47 --> 00:03:48

and the best day of the year is

00:03:48 --> 00:03:50

the day of 'Arafah when it all ended.

00:03:51 --> 00:03:52

And between the night of 'Qadr and the

00:03:52 --> 00:03:53

day of 'Arafah, the story of his life

00:03:53 --> 00:03:56

alayhi salatu wasalam, the legacy of that book

00:03:56 --> 00:03:58

and the legacy of Islam. And the day

00:03:58 --> 00:03:59

of Araf is by far the best day

00:03:59 --> 00:04:01

of the year because it was the day

00:04:01 --> 00:04:03

that Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala declared for us

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

that He has completed upon us His bounty.

00:04:06 --> 00:04:08

He has completed and fulfilled for us this

00:04:08 --> 00:04:11

blessing of Islam and he has accepted this

00:04:11 --> 00:04:13

this deen to be our way of life.

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

Scholars would say that if we knew what

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

it meant when he said, and

00:04:20 --> 00:04:22

then we will spend the rest of our

00:04:22 --> 00:04:24

lives just trying to explain it to others.

00:04:24 --> 00:04:26

When he says subhanahu wa ta'ala, I have

00:04:26 --> 00:04:29

accepted, I have I have riba, I have

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

acceptance

00:04:30 --> 00:04:32

for you to live through this way of

00:04:32 --> 00:04:35

life, through this faith, through this deen. Islam

00:04:35 --> 00:04:37

is something that I accept for you as

00:04:37 --> 00:04:39

your faith and nothing else is needed afterwards.

00:04:41 --> 00:04:43

As we enter the 9th months

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

of this barbaric

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

attempt,

00:04:46 --> 00:04:49

this, barbaric genocidal attempt of the Israeli government

00:04:49 --> 00:04:51

on the people of Gaza Palestine. As

00:04:52 --> 00:04:55

we count above of 30 north of 30

00:04:55 --> 00:04:56

37th

00:04:56 --> 00:04:57

a 1000 people.

00:04:58 --> 00:04:58

37,000

00:04:59 --> 00:05:00

people.

00:05:01 --> 00:05:03

I don't I don't think we fully understand

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

what that number means. For for 9 months

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

straight, we've been slowly counting and we reached

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

37,000.

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

It didn't it

00:05:11 --> 00:05:13

didn't happen across the globe, it's happened in

00:05:13 --> 00:05:16

an area smaller than the city of London.

00:05:16 --> 00:05:18

Smaller than the city over 9 months, we've

00:05:18 --> 00:05:20

just been counting day after day.

00:05:20 --> 00:05:23

Deaths, a death toll has been stolen going

00:05:23 --> 00:05:24

up to reach 37,000

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

people. The majority of them children and women.

00:05:27 --> 00:05:29

And this is what we're stuck with.

00:05:29 --> 00:05:31

This has to be one of the most

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

disgusting display

00:05:34 --> 00:05:35

of human indifference

00:05:36 --> 00:05:37

in modern history.

00:05:38 --> 00:05:41

When wars occur, war is war. This is

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

not war. This is not war.

00:05:44 --> 00:05:46

War means there are 2 armies that are

00:05:46 --> 00:05:47

fighting. There are battlefields.

00:05:48 --> 00:05:50

This is just the destruction

00:05:50 --> 00:05:54

of residential areas, the bombing of schools, the

00:05:54 --> 00:05:57

bombings of of of hospitals and university, the

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

refugee

00:05:59 --> 00:06:01

camps. In an ongoing manner, the only reason

00:06:01 --> 00:06:03

has not stopped is because of the texture

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

of the skin of the people who are

00:06:04 --> 00:06:05

there.

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

It's because of their religion and their background

00:06:08 --> 00:06:09

and the language they speak and the faith

00:06:09 --> 00:06:11

that they carry. That's why it hasn't stopped

00:06:11 --> 00:06:12

yet.

00:06:13 --> 00:06:14

I can tell you I can tell you

00:06:14 --> 00:06:16

that it was that the Ukrainian problem was

00:06:16 --> 00:06:17

dealt with very differently.

00:06:18 --> 00:06:20

That the Ukrainian problem was dealt with very

00:06:20 --> 00:06:21

differently.

00:06:21 --> 00:06:22

We don't need to go back to the

00:06:22 --> 00:06:24

history books to know how that was dealt

00:06:24 --> 00:06:26

with. It just happened a couple of months

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

before.

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

If you're watching the news, you know how

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

that was dealt with. You know the stern

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

language,

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

the firm language that was used.

00:06:33 --> 00:06:36

The aid and support, and the help, and

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

the military aid that actually occurred to them.

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

They continue to aid

00:06:42 --> 00:06:44

the military government. The the the the Israeli

00:06:44 --> 00:06:45

military.

00:06:46 --> 00:06:49

Our countries, our academic institutions Think of that,

00:06:49 --> 00:06:51

your academic institution.

00:06:51 --> 00:06:54

An academic one. Now forget it. I can

00:06:54 --> 00:06:56

understand the politics. I can understand the government

00:06:56 --> 00:06:58

aiding another military. I can get that. I

00:06:58 --> 00:07:00

can get it. I think it's absolutely unethical

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

and disgusting. But for an academic institution,

00:07:03 --> 00:07:05

why are you investing into a military to

00:07:05 --> 00:07:08

begin with? What academic institution has any has

00:07:08 --> 00:07:09

any

00:07:09 --> 00:07:12

integrity or has any values or principles? What

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

would invest in a military?

00:07:14 --> 00:07:15

I don't understand that piece.

00:07:17 --> 00:07:18

Apparently, it's very lucrative.

00:07:19 --> 00:07:21

Apparently, it makes a lot of money. Why

00:07:21 --> 00:07:23

wouldn't it? It's killing a lot of people.

00:07:23 --> 00:07:25

So it has to replace all of its

00:07:25 --> 00:07:26

weapons. So yeah, it's a good investment.

00:07:27 --> 00:07:29

This investment that is that that dips the

00:07:29 --> 00:07:31

hands of those who do it in blood.

00:07:31 --> 00:07:33

Our countries in the west,

00:07:33 --> 00:07:35

our hands are in the bucket of blood

00:07:35 --> 00:07:38

like any other country as we continue to

00:07:38 --> 00:07:40

observe and watch what occurs in the holy

00:07:40 --> 00:07:41

land. This is their 2nd aid that the

00:07:41 --> 00:07:44

Palestinian children will will walk out hoping

00:07:45 --> 00:07:47

to to get on a swing or to

00:07:47 --> 00:07:49

run around with a with water guns and,

00:07:49 --> 00:07:51

any any other child on the planet to

00:07:51 --> 00:07:54

enjoy a day of of celebration. They will

00:07:54 --> 00:07:56

do it under the fear of death. They

00:07:56 --> 00:07:57

will do it with family members missing. They

00:07:57 --> 00:08:00

will do it with their amputee friends. That

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

is how they're going to enjoy tomorrow and

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

the day after.

00:08:03 --> 00:08:05

But tomorrow is the day of Arafah.

00:08:05 --> 00:08:07

Tomorrow is the best day of the year.

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

The day where

00:08:23 --> 00:08:24

Prophet alaihis salam told us the best dua

00:08:24 --> 00:08:26

is the dua of the day of Arafah,

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

and the best thing I've said and all

00:08:27 --> 00:08:29

the prophets before me have ever said is

00:08:29 --> 00:08:30

La ilaha illallah.

00:08:30 --> 00:08:33

So say La ilaha illallah and make dua

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

tomorrow on the day of Arafah for the

00:08:34 --> 00:08:36

people who are suffering all across the globe

00:08:36 --> 00:08:39

in Gaza and Sudan and other parts of

00:08:39 --> 00:08:40

the world where they are being mistreated, where

00:08:40 --> 00:08:41

they are being

00:08:42 --> 00:08:44

oppressed and transgressed against. What I wanna share

00:08:44 --> 00:08:45

with you today

00:08:46 --> 00:08:49

is what happened 1400 years ago, on a

00:08:49 --> 00:08:50

day very similar to the day. Today is

00:08:50 --> 00:08:52

Yom Terruiyyah, and the day that the Hijjah

00:08:52 --> 00:08:54

go and they fill their water buckets in

00:08:54 --> 00:08:55

preparation

00:08:55 --> 00:08:57

for the beauty of what happens tomorrow.

00:08:57 --> 00:08:58

Tomorrow

00:08:58 --> 00:09:01

is the day that Islam was completed. If

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

you are going to look at Hajj from

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

the track of the Prophet Muhammad

00:09:06 --> 00:09:07

alaihis salatu wa salam's life. If you wanna

00:09:07 --> 00:09:08

look at look at it from the track

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

of Adam and Eve, it's the day that

00:09:10 --> 00:09:13

they were reunited and where they admitted their

00:09:13 --> 00:09:15

sin and their fault and they decided to

00:09:15 --> 00:09:16

live differently. If you wanna look at it

00:09:16 --> 00:09:19

from Ibrahim alaihis salam, it's the time that

00:09:19 --> 00:09:20

he had to tell his son that we

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

need to do something, and it was not

00:09:22 --> 00:09:24

very pleasant, and they agreed to it. However

00:09:24 --> 00:09:25

you look at Hajj, you're going to find

00:09:26 --> 00:09:29

an angle that is absolutely majestic and extremely

00:09:29 --> 00:09:31

profound. But regardless of all of that, I

00:09:31 --> 00:09:33

want to share with you things he said

00:09:33 --> 00:09:35

alayhis salatu wa sallam when he got on

00:09:35 --> 00:09:36

the mimbar of the day of Alafa or

00:09:36 --> 00:09:38

the day of Nahl or a yamatashikh

00:09:38 --> 00:09:40

or even on the day of taluya where

00:09:40 --> 00:09:43

he knew alaihis salatu wasalam unlike most people

00:09:43 --> 00:09:44

around him at the time, he knew that

00:09:44 --> 00:09:46

his time was running out.

00:09:46 --> 00:09:49

That his time was running out exactly 3

00:09:49 --> 00:09:50

months after he said the words I'm going

00:09:50 --> 00:09:52

to share with you, he passed away alayhis

00:09:52 --> 00:09:54

salatu wa sallam. 3 months later in Rabi'

00:09:54 --> 00:09:56

Al Awal, he passed away alayhis salatu wa

00:09:56 --> 00:09:57

sallam. He knew that his time was running

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

out. He knew because he heard those verse.

00:09:59 --> 00:10:01

That first on the day of Arafah, right

00:10:01 --> 00:10:03

before his khutbah, he heard, Aliyom al Khmatulakum.

00:10:03 --> 00:10:06

He heard that it's over, it's done, it's

00:10:06 --> 00:10:08

completion. What happens after completion?

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

When something is completed what happens next?

00:10:15 --> 00:10:17

Anything that is completed, what comes next is

00:10:17 --> 00:10:18

it starts to get lesser

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

because it's complete. It's reached its its pinnacle.

00:10:22 --> 00:10:24

It reached its epitome. Lost, there's nothing more

00:10:24 --> 00:10:26

to add to it. It's full. It's it's

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

perfect.

00:10:27 --> 00:10:29

Now whatever comes next is going to be

00:10:30 --> 00:10:32

loss of some sort.

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

It's going to decrease,

00:10:34 --> 00:10:37

and the decrease would come in the form

00:10:37 --> 00:10:39

of him alaihi salatu wa sallam moving on

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

to something better.

00:10:41 --> 00:10:43

Alaihi salatu wa sallam knew that when he

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

heard those verses, he knew

00:10:46 --> 00:10:48

that Mala Qal Mote is is waiting for

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

him very soon. He knew that, which is

00:10:50 --> 00:10:52

why I think he gave this the most

00:10:52 --> 00:10:54

beautiful sermon that could ever be given. Qutbudalwada

00:10:55 --> 00:10:56

is something you should study in your life

00:10:56 --> 00:10:59

multiple times. It's 9 paragraphs, you have to

00:10:59 --> 00:11:01

study them. You have to study each paragraph

00:11:01 --> 00:11:02

and listen to it or 8 paragraphs if

00:11:02 --> 00:11:04

you want to, combine the last 2. But

00:11:04 --> 00:11:06

you have to study these paragraphs and you

00:11:06 --> 00:11:08

have to listen to him alayhis salatu because

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

these are the words of someone who knows

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

that very soon he will not be around

00:11:13 --> 00:11:15

to tell you what to do, or to

00:11:15 --> 00:11:16

explain things to you, or to guide you,

00:11:16 --> 00:11:18

or lead you. And And he was speaking

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

to a 100000 people. I am talking right

00:11:21 --> 00:11:23

now to less than a 1000 people in

00:11:23 --> 00:11:24

a masihid with all the microphones in the

00:11:24 --> 00:11:27

world, with the perfect sound system, with your

00:11:27 --> 00:11:29

ability to sit in the shade. He was

00:11:29 --> 00:11:31

speaking to a 100000 people at a time

00:11:31 --> 00:11:34

where you needed people on horseback to gallop

00:11:34 --> 00:11:36

into the crowds, to repeat the words. So

00:11:36 --> 00:11:38

every paragraph took half an hour to an

00:11:38 --> 00:11:39

hour because he had to wait for them

00:11:39 --> 00:11:41

to go and repeat things because there was

00:11:41 --> 00:11:44

a question at the end of each paragraph.

00:11:44 --> 00:11:46

At the end of each paragraph they had

00:11:46 --> 00:11:48

to respond to him alaihis salatu wa sallam.

00:11:48 --> 00:11:49

They had to say something, he had a

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

question at the end of each.

00:11:52 --> 00:11:54

And knowing that alaihi salatu wa sallam, he

00:11:54 --> 00:11:56

chose his topics very carefully.

00:11:57 --> 00:11:58

He chose I'm not gonna tell you all

00:11:58 --> 00:12:00

late to worry. I'll share with you 2

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

or 3.

00:12:01 --> 00:12:03

But I'll start with the one that is

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

most important to us. And if we understood

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

the one, this first if we understood

00:12:07 --> 00:12:09

nothing else but then the then the first

00:12:09 --> 00:12:11

one, then really this a lot of what's

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

occurring today in the world would not be

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

occurring

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

to Muslims or by Muslims, from Muslims, or

00:12:16 --> 00:12:17

as Muslims. If you understood

00:12:18 --> 00:12:19

that first one. One.

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

So

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

he

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

stood

00:12:23 --> 00:12:24

If ever we make it to the other

00:12:24 --> 00:12:26

side, I hope to go back in time

00:12:26 --> 00:12:28

and witness this moment.

00:12:28 --> 00:12:30

One of my one of my questions, one

00:12:30 --> 00:12:31

of my my duas to Allah subhanahu wa

00:12:31 --> 00:12:33

ta'ala is I want to be there. I

00:12:33 --> 00:12:34

want to be I want to be on

00:12:34 --> 00:12:36

the day of Arafah or Nahuwah. He said

00:12:36 --> 00:12:38

he gave this khutbah at least 10 times

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

alaihis salatu wa sama. Never fully he'd give

00:12:40 --> 00:12:42

it in small. Every time he found a

00:12:42 --> 00:12:43

group of people he would repeat it again

00:12:43 --> 00:12:45

all throughout Hajj. From the 8th day to

00:12:45 --> 00:12:48

9th to 10th, 11th, 12th 13th, he kept

00:12:48 --> 00:12:49

on repeating to say that's why this hadith

00:12:49 --> 00:12:52

is narrated to us through so many different

00:12:52 --> 00:12:54

narrators because so many people heard him say

00:12:54 --> 00:12:56

these words alayhi wa sallam. And every time

00:12:56 --> 00:12:58

he gave this hukmah, he removed the paragraph

00:12:58 --> 00:13:00

and inserted another one. But he always said

00:13:00 --> 00:13:01

the first one.

00:13:02 --> 00:13:04

He always used the first one. Even though

00:13:04 --> 00:13:06

he sometimes would drop paragraph number 2, or

00:13:06 --> 00:13:08

number 3, or number 7, or number 5,

00:13:08 --> 00:13:10

but never number 1. He always started off

00:13:10 --> 00:13:12

with number 1 to the point where the

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

person who heard it knew what was coming

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

next. But out of respect wouldn't say anything

00:13:15 --> 00:13:17

because he knew what the Prophet alaihis salatu

00:13:17 --> 00:13:19

wa sallam was doing. And on the day

00:13:19 --> 00:13:21

that he actually gave all 8 paragraphs which

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

is the day of Arafah specifically.

00:13:24 --> 00:13:24

He said,

00:13:33 --> 00:13:35

Oh, people listen to me and understand what

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

I'm going to say, because who knows? There's

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

a possibility

00:13:38 --> 00:13:40

that we never meet again in a place

00:13:40 --> 00:13:43

like this, in a similar setup ever again.

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

He was already explaining to people alayhi salatu

00:13:45 --> 00:13:48

wa sallam, this is probably the last time

00:13:48 --> 00:13:49

I speak to people to you in this

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

and it was.

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

He only addressed a small congregation in his

00:13:53 --> 00:13:54

Masjid a few

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

a month later, a few times. Meaning he

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

was talking to maybe a 100 people, talks

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

to 100 people, But not that moment he

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

spoke to a 100,000. You and I are

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

the the the descendants of those people. This

00:14:05 --> 00:14:07

is what he was telling your grandfather and

00:14:07 --> 00:14:09

your grandmothers, what he was telling all of

00:14:09 --> 00:14:11

us. He said, Alayhisratu asrama yuhanas

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

Atadruna

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

aya yominhada

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

faqaduhada

00:14:16 --> 00:14:18

yomu arafah. He said, You know, O people

00:14:18 --> 00:14:20

what day it is today. So they say,

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

It's the day of Arafah.

00:14:21 --> 00:14:22

So he repeated the question.

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

He

00:14:24 --> 00:14:26

turned towards a different group and they said,

00:14:28 --> 00:14:30

And when some people said, Maybe maybe he

00:14:30 --> 00:14:31

meant that the days are changing.

00:14:32 --> 00:14:33

And they would ask the question again a

00:14:33 --> 00:14:34

third time,

00:14:38 --> 00:14:39

Maybe he wants to change the name of

00:14:39 --> 00:14:41

this day. Maybe Islam is gonna change the

00:14:41 --> 00:14:42

name of this day.

00:14:45 --> 00:14:47

So we stopped answering with Yom Arafah or

00:14:47 --> 00:14:49

Yom An Nahal or whatever or Yom Jumuah.

00:14:49 --> 00:14:51

We stopped answering. We said, Allah and His

00:14:51 --> 00:14:52

Prophet know best.

00:14:54 --> 00:14:56

This is a sacred holy day.

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

This is a sacred and holy day.

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

You know what month this is? Well, that's

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

easy. It's their hija. So the answer so

00:15:04 --> 00:15:05

he repeated the question to another group, and

00:15:05 --> 00:15:07

he repeated it again.

00:15:17 --> 00:15:19

It's a sacred and holy month, it's a

00:15:19 --> 00:15:21

month Ashurul Haram.

00:15:21 --> 00:15:22

And then he asked,

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

Do you know what country this is? Do

00:15:26 --> 00:15:28

you know what area and space? What city

00:15:28 --> 00:15:29

this is?

00:15:35 --> 00:15:37

He's not answering questions. This is they start

00:15:37 --> 00:15:38

telling him this is the name of the

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

area that we're in, and he would repeat

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

the question 3 times,

00:15:42 --> 00:15:43

and then he would answer himself and he

00:15:43 --> 00:15:44

would say,

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

This is sacred

00:15:46 --> 00:15:48

country, it's a sacred space.

00:15:49 --> 00:15:51

It's a sacred space. You see the sanctity

00:15:52 --> 00:15:54

of that moment that's why this moment is

00:15:54 --> 00:15:56

a the holiness of that moment.

00:15:56 --> 00:15:58

It's a holy day

00:15:59 --> 00:16:00

in a holy month

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

on holy land with the person who was

00:16:03 --> 00:16:06

speaking, the most holy person that ever lived

00:16:06 --> 00:16:07

alaihis salatu wa sallam, coming from his holy

00:16:07 --> 00:16:10

mouth alaihis salatu wa sallam. You understand that

00:16:10 --> 00:16:13

Hajj with Muhammad alayhis salatu wa sallam on

00:16:13 --> 00:16:14

the day of Arafah in the month of

00:16:14 --> 00:16:17

Dhir Hijjah on the land of Makkah?

00:16:17 --> 00:16:19

But more How many How how much more

00:16:19 --> 00:16:22

can you compound sanctity in one moment?

00:16:23 --> 00:16:24

Then he would say

00:16:30 --> 00:16:31

and then he would repeat it 3 times.

00:16:43 --> 00:16:45

He would say, Alaihisra, indeed

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

the sanctity of your lives,

00:16:48 --> 00:16:51

the sanctity of your wealth, the sanctity of

00:16:51 --> 00:16:52

your integrity,

00:16:53 --> 00:16:54

of your well-being

00:16:54 --> 00:16:56

is more sacred than the sanctity and the

00:16:56 --> 00:17:00

holiness of this holy day, in this holy

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

month on this holy land.

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

Allahalbalaqut

00:17:04 --> 00:17:07

have, I explained Myself well, that He would

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

wait for the people to go into the

00:17:09 --> 00:17:11

crowds and ask the question. And the answer

00:17:11 --> 00:17:13

would come, Allahum manaram, yes we understand. Yes

00:17:13 --> 00:17:15

we understand. And He would turn to the

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

sky

00:17:16 --> 00:17:19

and say, Allahum Mafashad. Oh Allah be my

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

witness. I told them I told them that

00:17:21 --> 00:17:24

their lives are more sacred than Makkah and

00:17:24 --> 00:17:27

Arafa and Dhul Hijjah and Yom An Nahar

00:17:27 --> 00:17:30

and Muhammad salallahu alaihi wa sallam and everything

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

that comes with it. The sanct the sanctity

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

of the one life of one life is

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

more sacred than all of this holiness put

00:17:36 --> 00:17:37

together.

00:17:37 --> 00:17:39

That's what he explained to us alayhis salaam.

00:17:39 --> 00:17:41

He wanted to make sure that that message

00:17:41 --> 00:17:44

was clear before he died. Why? Because before

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

he went to his Lord, before he went

00:17:46 --> 00:17:47

to Ar Rafi Al A'la where he was

00:17:47 --> 00:17:49

going to be treated in accordance to his

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

status alayhis salatu wa salam, he had to

00:17:51 --> 00:17:53

make sure that he left with us the

00:17:53 --> 00:17:55

really important piece of information that we needed

00:17:55 --> 00:17:57

to understand, that the sanctity of human life

00:17:57 --> 00:18:00

is more important than anything else. Or you're

00:18:00 --> 00:18:02

gonna be How upset would the Muslims be

00:18:02 --> 00:18:05

if they bomb the Kaaba? Or if they

00:18:05 --> 00:18:06

took away from us our Hajj? Or if

00:18:06 --> 00:18:08

they took away No. It's not as bad

00:18:08 --> 00:18:10

as what they've been doing for the 9

00:18:10 --> 00:18:13

last 9 months. It doesn't even come close

00:18:13 --> 00:18:15

because one life

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

one life is worth all of that. Imagine

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

all of these

00:18:20 --> 00:18:22

lives. Imagine all of these innocent lives being

00:18:22 --> 00:18:25

taken. All this blood being unjustly spilt.

00:18:26 --> 00:18:27

He told us.

00:18:27 --> 00:18:28

He told us. And

00:18:30 --> 00:18:31

he you he told us in a way

00:18:31 --> 00:18:32

that was

00:18:33 --> 00:18:34

it's undisputable.

00:18:34 --> 00:18:35

It's undebatable

00:18:36 --> 00:18:38

because everyone at that moment felt the sanctity,

00:18:39 --> 00:18:40

the holiness of that moment.

00:18:41 --> 00:18:43

You're sitting there. It's towards the end of

00:18:43 --> 00:18:44

his life.

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

20 years of a struggle

00:18:47 --> 00:18:48

comes to an end. He's tired.

00:18:49 --> 00:18:50

It's been a long time coming.

00:18:51 --> 00:18:54

A 100000 people are at his feet listening

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

to him.

00:18:55 --> 00:18:57

Not too long ago, he stood alone

00:18:58 --> 00:18:59

with a few people who were being persecuted.

00:18:59 --> 00:19:00

But now,

00:19:01 --> 00:19:04

coming full circle Full circle he's back at

00:19:04 --> 00:19:06

this time he is not weak, this time

00:19:06 --> 00:19:07

he is not being told, he's not being

00:19:07 --> 00:19:09

cursed out by his own family member, he's

00:19:09 --> 00:19:11

not being not trying to kill him. They're

00:19:11 --> 00:19:12

not trying to take away his home. They're

00:19:12 --> 00:19:14

not trying to harm his companions. No. This

00:19:14 --> 00:19:16

time he comes in and he has more

00:19:16 --> 00:19:18

followers than Arabia has ever seen. A Hajj

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

that has never been anything's no Hajj has

00:19:21 --> 00:19:22

ever been similar.

00:19:22 --> 00:19:24

There had never been up to that moment

00:19:24 --> 00:19:25

a Hajj that was so busy where you

00:19:25 --> 00:19:27

couldn't move, where you couldn't walk with the

00:19:27 --> 00:19:29

prophet, where people were finding it, it was

00:19:29 --> 00:19:30

never like that.

00:19:31 --> 00:19:33

Coming full circle, he would stand there alaihis

00:19:33 --> 00:19:34

salatu wa sama will look at people and

00:19:34 --> 00:19:36

tell them the sanctity of your lives amongst

00:19:36 --> 00:19:37

one another.

00:19:38 --> 00:19:39

The sanctity of the person sitting beside you

00:19:39 --> 00:19:41

right now. The person beside you right now,

00:19:41 --> 00:19:44

the holiness of his wealth, of his integrity,

00:19:44 --> 00:19:46

of his life is more holy than it

00:19:46 --> 00:19:48

because everyone sitting there were like, wow this

00:19:48 --> 00:19:50

is very holy. Look at this, it's the

00:19:50 --> 00:19:52

day of Arafah, it's the day of Jumuah,

00:19:52 --> 00:19:54

it's the month of Dhul Hijjah. This is

00:19:54 --> 00:19:55

Arafah, this is Makkadah Rasulullah

00:19:56 --> 00:19:59

Imagine the beauty, imagine the majesty of that

00:19:59 --> 00:20:01

moment, the significance, the magnificence.

00:20:02 --> 00:20:04

He takes all of that magnificence, all of

00:20:04 --> 00:20:06

that sanctity. He takes it all alahis salatu

00:20:06 --> 00:20:07

wa salam. He says, you see all of

00:20:07 --> 00:20:08

it.

00:20:08 --> 00:20:10

The person beside you is more sacred than

00:20:10 --> 00:20:13

all of it. Tell me that doesn't mean

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

something.

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

Tell me that how could how is that

00:20:15 --> 00:20:17

not clear? How could we not oh, I

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

don't understand. I don't understand how Muslims that

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

was not he did it in a way

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

that he repeated this every single chance he

00:20:24 --> 00:20:25

had for the next 5 days.

00:23:47 --> 00:23:49

He will continue alaihi salaam and I'm sorry

00:23:49 --> 00:23:51

we're running out of time, but I'll share

00:23:51 --> 00:23:52

with you 2 more pieces

00:23:54 --> 00:23:55

that he said here. So he stood

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

and he said, paragraph number 4,

00:24:00 --> 00:24:01

or paragraph number 5. Sorry.

00:24:29 --> 00:24:32

Imagine this God. He never said anything similar

00:24:32 --> 00:24:33

to this in his life, alayhis salaatu wa

00:24:33 --> 00:24:35

sama. He lived it. He lived it, alayhis

00:24:35 --> 00:24:36

salaatu wa sama salatu wa sama for sure.

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

He lived it. But then at the end,

00:24:37 --> 00:24:38

he had to just bring

00:24:39 --> 00:24:41

it bring it closure. You say, look, just

00:24:41 --> 00:24:43

just in case it's unclear to you. Just

00:24:43 --> 00:24:44

in case you have just in case you

00:24:44 --> 00:24:46

haven't picked it up after all the years

00:24:46 --> 00:24:48

of teaching and reading the Quran and watching

00:24:48 --> 00:24:50

how I live, I'm gonna make it very

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

clear to you. Oh, people indeed, your Lord

00:24:51 --> 00:24:54

is but 1 and your father is but

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

1.

00:24:55 --> 00:24:57

You all come from Adam. Adam comes from

00:24:57 --> 00:24:59

the soil of the earth. There's no advantage

00:24:59 --> 00:25:01

for a Arabi over a non Arab, or

00:25:01 --> 00:25:03

a non Arab over a Arab, or a

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

white man over a black man, or a

00:25:04 --> 00:25:06

black man over a white man. There is

00:25:06 --> 00:25:08

no advantage for anyone over anyone except through

00:25:08 --> 00:25:11

taqwa. And taqwa is something that only Allah

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

sees and the best of you are the

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

ones who have more taqwa in their hearts.

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

Indeed have I

00:25:17 --> 00:25:19

conveyed the message. And then they galloped into

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

the groups again.

00:25:20 --> 00:25:22

Into the crowds, they would gallop again saying

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

these words.

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

And they would say, allahum manam. Yes. And

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

he would say, allahum, afashadu, allah, be my

00:25:27 --> 00:25:29

witness. I told them. I told them that

00:25:29 --> 00:25:31

there is no that they are 1. They

00:25:31 --> 00:25:32

are 1. They are 1 big family.

00:25:33 --> 00:25:34

They are especially this Ummah. This Ummah is

00:25:34 --> 00:25:38

1 big family that agrees on the fundamental

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

answers to fundamental questions.

00:25:41 --> 00:25:43

This Ummah specifically is an Ummah that agrees

00:25:43 --> 00:25:46

on the basics, that knows where it's going,

00:25:46 --> 00:25:48

that knows what it's Iblah is, that knows

00:25:48 --> 00:25:50

what legacy, what message it carries. We're one

00:25:50 --> 00:25:52

big family, our father is Adam.

00:25:53 --> 00:25:55

Imagine meeting Adam, You Mirkiyama.

00:25:55 --> 00:25:58

Which of us has has more claim

00:25:58 --> 00:25:59

on the

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

on our relationship with him. Does anyone Does

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

any of us When we see Adam and

00:26:05 --> 00:26:07

we see Eve, Alayhi Salaam. Do any of

00:26:07 --> 00:26:08

us Can anyone's gonna say I'm more related

00:26:08 --> 00:26:10

to you than this person here?

00:26:10 --> 00:26:13

No. We are equally related to them. We're

00:26:13 --> 00:26:14

all just

00:26:14 --> 00:26:16

think about that. That's what Arafah is. Arafah

00:26:16 --> 00:26:18

is we go and we stand where they

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

stood.

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

We go and we stand where Adam and

00:26:21 --> 00:26:24

Ahawah were reunited again, where where the story

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

of humanity began. So you can remember the

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

basics,

00:26:28 --> 00:26:30

The basics of this being one human race,

00:26:30 --> 00:26:33

we have to do what's in its best

00:26:33 --> 00:26:35

interest. Even though amongst us are zalama,

00:26:36 --> 00:26:38

even though amongst us there are oppressors, there

00:26:38 --> 00:26:40

are transgressors, there are people who have very

00:26:40 --> 00:26:42

little ethics, or have no moral compass at

00:26:42 --> 00:26:44

all but they're still a part of this

00:26:44 --> 00:26:47

big family. It's a miserable family but it's

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

a family all the same.

00:26:49 --> 00:26:51

It's still a family. We're still brothers and

00:26:51 --> 00:26:53

sisters whether you like it or you don't

00:26:53 --> 00:26:55

like it. It makes no difference. We are

00:26:55 --> 00:26:57

connected through blood. We are connected through Adam

00:26:57 --> 00:27:00

and Hawa alayhi wasalam. And we are forced.

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

We have to as Muslims, we have to

00:27:01 --> 00:27:04

carry the baton of the end of time.

00:27:04 --> 00:27:06

We have to carry that with or you

00:27:06 --> 00:27:08

unite people. We have to do what's in

00:27:08 --> 00:27:10

the best interest of this human race.

00:27:10 --> 00:27:13

That's what Islam is. Islam is the solution

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

to the struggles of this group of people.

00:27:17 --> 00:27:18

And that's what he explained to us that

00:27:18 --> 00:27:20

his thoughts was him. A final reminder that

00:27:20 --> 00:27:21

you're all related.

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

Whether you are Arabic or something different, whether

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

your color is this or some other color,

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

regardless of where you come from, we're all

00:27:28 --> 00:27:30

the same. We're all related, and we're all

00:27:30 --> 00:27:33

equal. The concept of equality. Why is it

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

that some blood is is is valuable in

00:27:35 --> 00:27:37

this world and others is not?

00:27:37 --> 00:27:39

Why is it, it seems like the darker

00:27:39 --> 00:27:41

the shade of your skin, the less value

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

your value where your blood is. Why is

00:27:44 --> 00:27:46

that? That sounds horrible? It is horrible.

00:27:47 --> 00:27:48

It is horrible. But it it is it

00:27:48 --> 00:27:49

not the reality

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

of the world that we live in? Is

00:27:51 --> 00:27:53

it not the reality that we're that we

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

live in that the leaders look at people

00:27:54 --> 00:27:55

that way?

00:27:56 --> 00:27:58

That people look at people. You remember what

00:27:58 --> 00:28:00

happened when they first entered Ukraine? I remember

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

this. This will I will die and never

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

forget what I heard on TV that day.

00:28:04 --> 00:28:07

I remember someone going around in this subway

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

area of the in in Ukraine and they

00:28:09 --> 00:28:11

were going around and people are are are

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

absolutely

00:28:13 --> 00:28:14

terrified from what's going on. And then they

00:28:14 --> 00:28:16

of course they are swore. They lost their

00:28:16 --> 00:28:19

homes. And someone's going around taking interviews from

00:28:19 --> 00:28:21

the individuals in there. And one of the

00:28:21 --> 00:28:23

people in there you know what they said?

00:28:24 --> 00:28:25

They said, well, you know, this is not

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

acceptable. We're not the Middle East.

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

This is not acceptable. You know, for for

00:28:30 --> 00:28:31

there to be war in our area and

00:28:31 --> 00:28:33

for people to die like this. We're not

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

the Middle East. Really? You're not.

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

Yeah. So you know, indeed you're not. Indeed.

00:28:37 --> 00:28:38

Indeed. And of course, that was proven later

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

on that they're not they're not the Middle

00:28:40 --> 00:28:41

East. That's not gonna be allowed.

00:28:42 --> 00:28:43

And we haven't even started to talk about

00:28:43 --> 00:28:45

what happens in the African continent where the

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

majority of people there are also Muslims. We

00:28:47 --> 00:28:49

didn't even start talking about that and how

00:28:49 --> 00:28:51

that doesn't even make the news. At least,

00:28:51 --> 00:28:53

Hassan makes the news. At least, we have

00:28:53 --> 00:28:55

a media outlet that will cover what's occurring

00:28:55 --> 00:28:58

there. But elsewhere, there's no there's no news

00:28:58 --> 00:29:00

there. No one's even covering it. People are

00:29:00 --> 00:29:01

dying into 100 of 1,000 and no one

00:29:01 --> 00:29:02

even looks there.

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

That's not what he taught Alaihis salat wa

00:29:04 --> 00:29:05

sif.

00:29:05 --> 00:29:07

That's not what he taught. That's all I'm

00:29:07 --> 00:29:08

here to say today. That's not what he

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

taught us.

00:29:10 --> 00:29:11

I'll end with this.

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

Paragraph number 6 alayhi salatu wa sama will

00:29:13 --> 00:29:14

say the

00:29:14 --> 00:29:15

following,

00:29:28 --> 00:29:30

Said indeed I am waiting for you upon

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

my base

00:29:31 --> 00:29:34

and I want your numbers to be the

00:29:34 --> 00:29:36

highest numbers. I want my followers to be

00:29:36 --> 00:29:38

the most followers amongst all the other prophets.

00:29:38 --> 00:29:39

So do not

00:29:40 --> 00:29:42

It's a word that is said within Arabic

00:29:42 --> 00:29:45

I mean within the Arabic language that means

00:29:45 --> 00:29:46

don't make me look bad.

00:29:46 --> 00:29:48

Don't make me look don't make me don't

00:29:48 --> 00:29:49

embarrass me in front of all those I

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

am telling them is going to work out.

00:29:50 --> 00:29:52

My followers will get it done. They will

00:29:52 --> 00:29:55

carry this. They will take the legacy of

00:29:55 --> 00:29:56

what I and they will carry it, and

00:29:56 --> 00:29:57

they will fix the problems. And they will

00:29:57 --> 00:30:00

bring to Allah all of his lost sheep.

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

All of the lost flock will be be

00:30:02 --> 00:30:04

brought back by my by my followers. They

00:30:04 --> 00:30:05

will go find their brothers and sisters who

00:30:05 --> 00:30:07

are lost and they'll bring them back to

00:30:07 --> 00:30:09

Allah. That's the idea here.

00:30:31 --> 00:30:33

He said indeed on that day I will

00:30:33 --> 00:30:35

save people from the hellfire. May Allah make

00:30:35 --> 00:30:36

us amongst those.

00:30:37 --> 00:30:38

May Allah make us amongst those who the

00:30:38 --> 00:30:39

prophet

00:30:39 --> 00:30:41

looks at us and calls us and he

00:30:41 --> 00:30:42

saves us. But then he will try and

00:30:42 --> 00:30:44

save some, but they'll be taken away from

00:30:44 --> 00:30:46

him. He will try and pull them, but,

00:30:46 --> 00:30:48

the Malaika will come and take them away.

00:30:48 --> 00:30:49

So the prophet

00:30:49 --> 00:30:51

will get upset. He will say, oh, You're

00:30:51 --> 00:30:53

up, oh, my lord, Usay Habi, these are,

00:30:53 --> 00:30:55

Well, they're not my actual companions, but they're

00:30:55 --> 00:30:56

people who followed my companions.

00:30:57 --> 00:30:58

They came a little bit later, but they're

00:30:58 --> 00:31:01

they're still close enough. I know who they

00:31:01 --> 00:31:02

were. I I I I know what they

00:31:02 --> 00:31:03

did. They're a part of my ummah. Why

00:31:03 --> 00:31:05

are they be being taken away? So the

00:31:05 --> 00:31:07

malaika turned to him and they say, you

00:31:07 --> 00:31:08

don't know what they did after you.

00:31:08 --> 00:31:10

We use this always to talk about bidah,

00:31:10 --> 00:31:12

and I think I I agree. But let's

00:31:12 --> 00:31:14

zoom out for a second. Just zoom out

00:31:14 --> 00:31:15

for a second in terms of understanding this

00:31:15 --> 00:31:17

phrase. You don't know what they did after

00:31:17 --> 00:31:19

you. You don't know how little they cared

00:31:19 --> 00:31:21

about your teachings. You don't know how little

00:31:21 --> 00:31:23

they spent how little time they spent learning

00:31:23 --> 00:31:25

what it is that you stood for. You

00:31:25 --> 00:31:27

have no idea how little time they spent

00:31:27 --> 00:31:29

or how little energy they spent trying to

00:31:29 --> 00:31:30

bring back

00:31:30 --> 00:31:32

the the values and the principles and the

00:31:32 --> 00:31:34

strength and unity of your ummah. You have

00:31:34 --> 00:31:37

no idea how little they cared. No, they're

00:31:37 --> 00:31:38

not. They're not a part of your legacy.

00:31:38 --> 00:31:40

They're not a part of your ummah. They

00:31:40 --> 00:31:42

acted like it. They they were in it

00:31:42 --> 00:31:44

for the perks. They were hoping for you

00:31:44 --> 00:31:45

to take care of them now but they

00:31:45 --> 00:31:47

lived nothing like that. They didn't live like

00:31:47 --> 00:31:48

you.

00:31:48 --> 00:31:50

They didn't live like you, You Rasool Allah.

00:31:50 --> 00:31:51

No one like the people who were with

00:31:51 --> 00:31:53

you. They didn't live like you so they

00:31:53 --> 00:31:55

don't get this here today. So he says,

00:31:55 --> 00:31:56

Suhaka, take them away.

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

Take them away.

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

And if they if they try to fool

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

me, take them away.

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

If I after everything I left them, they

00:32:03 --> 00:32:05

still didn't live the way I explained that

00:32:05 --> 00:32:06

for them to look. They still didn't live

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

the way I explained to them. The way

00:32:08 --> 00:32:10

I showed them. The way I lived myself.

00:32:10 --> 00:32:12

The way I walked into this world and

00:32:12 --> 00:32:13

walked out with nothing.

00:32:14 --> 00:32:15

We don't understand that piece very often. We

00:32:15 --> 00:32:16

don't think about it. Didn't

00:32:18 --> 00:32:20

he didn't capitalize on anything. You know? Think

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

about that. Take that with you today when

00:32:21 --> 00:32:23

you go home. He didn't leave he he

00:32:23 --> 00:32:24

entered he lived poor

00:32:25 --> 00:32:26

financially. He didn't have a lot of money.

00:32:26 --> 00:32:28

He gave it all away. Right? He lived

00:32:28 --> 00:32:29

like that. He never he never built capital.

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

When he passed away alaihis salatu wa sallam

00:32:31 --> 00:32:34

he had pawned his own dirah.

00:32:34 --> 00:32:36

His own shield. He had pawned it to

00:32:36 --> 00:32:39

pay off someone else's debt because he didn't

00:32:39 --> 00:32:41

have enough money to spend it for he

00:32:41 --> 00:32:43

didn't have a the person who had the

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

debt was had more money than the prophet

00:32:45 --> 00:32:47

alaihi sallahu alaihi wa sallam did. But he

00:32:47 --> 00:32:48

came to him asking him, I want help

00:32:48 --> 00:32:50

with my debt. So he pawned his dirra

00:32:51 --> 00:32:52

and he took the money and gave it

00:32:52 --> 00:32:54

to him. When he passed away his shield

00:32:54 --> 00:32:55

was pawned, they had to go buy it

00:32:55 --> 00:32:56

out.

00:32:57 --> 00:32:58

Ali had to go buy had to go

00:32:58 --> 00:33:00

buy it out so that they wouldn't lose

00:33:00 --> 00:33:01

his shield.

00:33:04 --> 00:33:05

And that's what we have to think about

00:33:05 --> 00:33:06

really. We have to think about these are

00:33:06 --> 00:33:08

the days where you take some time and

00:33:08 --> 00:33:10

you make some decisions about what you're going

00:33:10 --> 00:33:11

to do with your life moving forward.

00:33:12 --> 00:33:13

Whether you're gonna live like him

00:33:14 --> 00:33:15

and on that day you come to him,

00:33:15 --> 00:33:17

he's waiting for you on his basin and

00:33:17 --> 00:33:18

and you

00:33:18 --> 00:33:20

and you're not pulled away from by someone

00:33:20 --> 00:33:22

else and you're not someone who made him

00:33:22 --> 00:33:24

look bad, alayhis salatu wa sallam. You did

00:33:24 --> 00:33:25

you did you did well.

00:33:26 --> 00:33:27

You did well. Good for you. You tried

00:33:27 --> 00:33:29

hard and you you did well.

00:33:30 --> 00:33:31

1 of 1 of 2 things will happen

00:33:31 --> 00:33:32

on that day. 1 of 2 things will

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

happen.

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

And we have to understand the importance

00:33:36 --> 00:33:36

of the sanctity

00:33:37 --> 00:33:38

of one another.

00:33:38 --> 00:33:39

If we just took that first piece and

00:33:39 --> 00:33:42

thought about it, things would change internally within

00:33:42 --> 00:33:44

our own within our own community would change.

00:33:44 --> 00:33:45

If I start to see your integrity to

00:33:45 --> 00:33:46

be that sacred,

00:33:46 --> 00:33:48

then I would treat you differently. I would

00:33:48 --> 00:33:50

think about you differently. I would take more

00:33:50 --> 00:33:51

time to to assess your

00:33:52 --> 00:33:54

your your inner feelings and and how you're

00:33:54 --> 00:33:56

doing and I I actually care about it.

00:33:56 --> 00:33:58

It would something important to me. I'll treat

00:33:58 --> 00:33:59

you better. I'll be kinder. I'll be more

00:33:59 --> 00:34:01

compassionate. I'll be more open hearted.

00:34:01 --> 00:34:04

And then people overseas wouldn't wouldn't they wouldn't

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

this wouldn't happen.

00:34:05 --> 00:34:06

This wouldn't have happened.

00:34:07 --> 00:34:09

So may we learn his final sermon alayhis

00:34:09 --> 00:34:11

salatu wa salam and may we take from

00:34:11 --> 00:34:13

him the lessons that he left us. Tomorrow

00:34:13 --> 00:34:14

is the day of Arafah so make sure

00:34:14 --> 00:34:16

that you fast and make sure that you

00:34:16 --> 00:34:18

spend that day in du'a and in dhikr.

00:34:18 --> 00:34:20

In a recitation of the Quran, in all

00:34:20 --> 00:34:21

good deeds you can think about. And if

00:34:21 --> 00:34:24

you're capable of sending your Ubhayah overseas, this

00:34:24 --> 00:34:25

is the time to do it. Ubhayah, you

00:34:25 --> 00:34:26

can do it here and that's fine as

00:34:26 --> 00:34:27

well and Allah subhanahu wa'ala will accept from

00:34:27 --> 00:34:28

you whether you do it here. But if

00:34:28 --> 00:34:30

you want to do it overseas, you wanna

00:34:30 --> 00:34:31

send it to people who are suffering and

00:34:31 --> 00:34:33

starving, then you're you're absolutely within your rights

00:34:33 --> 00:34:35

with Islamically to do that as well to

00:34:35 --> 00:34:37

support people who are in difficulty. We will

00:34:37 --> 00:34:40

have, inshallah, a journey of Hajj lesson in

00:34:40 --> 00:34:42

Arabic tonight after Salat al Maghrib, and then

00:34:42 --> 00:34:44

tomorrow before before Maghrib, I'll have a journey

00:34:44 --> 00:34:46

of Hajj lesson in English for those who

00:34:46 --> 00:34:46

would

00:34:47 --> 00:34:49

like to come and listen, to the journey

00:34:49 --> 00:34:50

of Hajj and maybe the different tracks that

00:34:50 --> 00:34:52

you can understand this beautiful this beautiful ritual

00:34:52 --> 00:34:53

through. I hope that was a benefit

00:36:43 --> 00:36:45

The aid fairs will be in different centers

00:36:45 --> 00:36:47

and will be in the BMO. We won't

00:36:47 --> 00:36:48

be having an aid obviously here. We'll be

00:36:48 --> 00:36:49

I'll be going

00:36:49 --> 00:36:51

and attending one of the aids, inshallah ta'ala,

00:36:51 --> 00:36:53

at BMO, probably the early one. Hope to

00:36:53 --> 00:36:55

see you inshallah there and and, and everyone.
