If you turn on the TV and you go to, or you go to the channels of the Saudi Arabian channels, you'll be able to see the Hajaj moving from one place to the other, you'll see names, you'll see the names of this part and that part. So knowing what these places are and what they represent. And what exactly how they actually work on a map is, I think, gives a little bit of a way, a better visualization of it and a better appreciation of what was actually occurring.
So we'll do that. And then once we come to the end of it, I will continue to share with you the whole Farewell Sermon of the Prophet it is, so it's I shared a few pieces of parts of it yesterday, I'll share a few parts of it as well today. So starting out
the conversation of hedge.
The concept itself, before we even go into the details of what this is the word hedge, which is in English, in Arabic, and translated is pilgrimage. So the actual translation is pretty good. It's when you go on a journey
to discover something. So the Pilgrim is someone who goes on a journey trying to find something or discover something or pick something up. So Allah Subhanallah tells you, I mean, perform Hajj and come, he's asking you to take a pilgrimage and come and you're supposed to be looking for something on the way. So the concept itself is there, like the idea of the Infinity Bill Hedgy, using the word
without even going into any further detail, you know, that this is going to be number one, a journey. And number two, there's something that you're you're looking for. So those two on their own, if you know nothing else about this, about this ritual, will open up certain doors for you in terms of how you're going to understand it, like just just the word itself is very self explanatory. So you're, you're on a journey, this is not going to be something that you do, it's steps that you're going to take one after the other. And the joy of a journey is not in achieving one thing. It's in the actual process itself. Like when you go on a road trip, it's really not about the
destination. It's about the journey itself. Even when we use those terms, it's what we mean. So hygiene is not really about doing one thing or or this thing or that thing, even though obviously hygiene, and I'll explain them to you so that you don't think I'm I'm singing this ritual outside of the context of this jurisprudence. I will point out what is the what the Onchain are and what the Big Bertha with the Sunnah, and that's all understandable. But the actual value of it is within the journey that you take itself. And then you're in search your search results. It's not just a journey, it's you're looking for something.
And I think that piece is what people miss out on. I don't think we are perfect. Do you have the flicker is like a look at perfect? Yep.
We can point out what we're looking for, I think what you're looking for kind of comes down to what actually occurred here. Why is it that Why are you going on on this journey to begin with? What's the point of it and why to this specific piece of Earth, which is what I shared with you on Jomar. During the hotbar, I pointed out something for you that
this pilgrimage, Hajj was performed by all of the prophets of God, everyone that Allah subhanaw taala sent was encouraged or obligated to perform this. Most of them did. Some of them for reasons of of distance or any turbulence or calamities did not. But they all were aware of the first house that Allah subhanaw taala put for his work for worship on Earth where it was and the importance of performing the pilgrimage to that house during a certain season. There is something that the prophet Isaiah sought to Assam, Islam tells us explains to it. And this is what the Quran points out in its in his verses in the way that Ibrahim is told to rebuild. He was told to rebuild. But what if yellow
file all these terms they refer or they suggest or they imply that the structure was once there. The structure was not being established there with his hands on he set up? How rather is going to be reestablished there. And that's what the Prophet said he sought to a certain point you know, so as in abundance, a number of it that I shared with you during the hotbed of Joomla
is at work Oh perfect. So if you go to the verses themselves now what we've been working on Ibrahima, McKenna's, B et al to Shrek beach and when we when we reveal to Ibrahim there's the place of where the house was but what not my kind of baby me explaining where the house was and we told him not to she could be she do not associate with me anyone else? What the hill at a low GPA in and purify this might help my house for those who would like to circumambulate perform bluff. Well call me in and those who would like to worship Me and praise me. Well rock guys to you and those who want to engage in prayer.
Well as in financeable hygiene, you have to carry Jalla wa Ala
Will you buy me any tea and I mean coolly Fujinami and call upon them for Hajj, they will come to you walking in on the back on the backs of horses or or animals.
And they'll come to you from every faraway Valley or faraway pathway, maybe they'll come from everywhere to you, which is obviously something if this was meant to be a prophecy, then it's a prophecy that was fully fulfilled. Because Otto continued to fulfill the pilgrimage of hygiene and during their times of ship, they performed Hajj, same timing within the agenda, they went for Hajj, they went obviously with a different mentality, for different reasons, different things. But once the Prophet alayhi salatu salam performed his height, and since then, the people come to perform Hajj from all over the world, and it's one of the most interesting things that you'll see when you
go to Hajj is the variety in the diversity of Muslims, and literally from all over the planet from parts of the world that you didn't really think Islam had reached or that there was a an actual Islamic Ganic community there, but there isn't as a flourishing one as what we just don't know about it. And that's the fulfillment of this beautiful prophecy that Allah Subhanallah, it will come back to these to these verses as we go along. Because they are actually quite important.
And they point out, so the the pillars of hydro four things. So when you perform hydrogen, again, I'll point out the symbol symbolism to you as we go along. Because really, it's about again, remember, this is a journey, that you're looking you're going on, you're in search of something. So those two points should stay with you as we go along. And you should be asking yourself, what is that I'm looking for. And as we kind of point out the symbolism you'll become, it'll become clear to you what is it that we're trying to achieve with this beautiful ritual? It's a beautiful ritual. Yeah, I feel bad for those who actually perform it and don't understand what they're doing, or why
they're doing it and don't have any context any of it. Because without context, it actually
without context, it makes no sense at all. You go and you walk around a rock, and then you walk between two rocks, and you take small rocks and throw them on big rocks, and you sleep amongst rocks, and then you come home again. And aside from that, really, you don't if that's what you do, if that's what you did, then yes, this didn't mean, but if you actually understand where you are, who was here before, what actually occurred here, why you're doing all of this. It's a very different experience. And that's why there's a pilgrimage. It's why it's a journey that you go upon, and you embark upon, and you learn things. So the four rich pillars of hutch, these four things with
some difference of opinion within the schools of jurisprudence. So there is some difference opinions, meaning the chef and the hunt buddies have an extra one, the honeybees have less one. But generally speaking, these four even within these four in the four schools are mostly to one degree or the other agreed upon the harm, which we'll talk about in a moment. And then the performing of at least one, one set of bluff, doing at least once during highly recommended it will be two but at least once this can be later on around the cabin, and then say bit yourself, and Marwa and then standing and standing in Arafa, which is going to be Tuesday, inshallah Tada. So that's those are
the pillars of patch. And the pillars of Umbra are different. So it's a random prophesy. So the difference between a hammer on hydro is just what from a pillar perspective, meaning if you don't do one of these, your hydrogen is not complete until you do them.
The only difference being on HUD is this standing in Ottawa. Aside from that, they're pretty much the same. And why do I say pillars? When I say to places that if you don't, if you go on an alpha, and you do a pull off and you don't perform, say, you're in hudge, until it before I'm sorry, even if you get on a plane and come back to Canada, you're still in hajj, until you go back and perform that same meeting, this spiritual has not ended for you. You have the rituals not done. Even if you go back a year later, you're still you could do it. You could go to Holland, you mean you can get out of your from, obviously, you're wrong by doing it, you'll get out of your harm. But technically
speaking, you're still within hygiene till you go back and from that site isn't important, because why not explain things to people, because you should not get on that plane until you've done all for now or else you basically announced that your hygiene was invalid. And you got to say this, you end your height by saying My height is not accepted. This is not invalid. It's not valid. It's like if you know if you make a mistake, your foot is invalid after repeated again, so that hygiene is invalid until you get all four and it has happened. I know people and the reason I know because one of my teachers was someone who would perform these these Hijjah journeys and they went to hydrogen
one of the brothers there didn't perform sigh
left outside and on the way back he tells me share so Jeff stops the bus. He basically gets off the bus with him since the rest of the people back to Syria and he turns around and goes back because like you your hydrogen is not your enemy. You have not performed high jet because you didn't do this site is a pillar of hydro all four have to be done. Everything else. No everything else if they're not done you don't get your hedge can end
He can be accepted, it can be valid, it can be totally valid, even if you didn't do them. So think of everything else, you can probably think of other stuff. What about this? What about that? Everything else there are ways out of it. There's are ways around it, there are things you can do. But these four, no, all four have to occur. Unless, of course, you follow the Hanafi madhhab, which the drops certain aspects of
certain pillars aren't there, mostly with balaclava. But if you're a Shafi, for example, you all four apply to you. So you're going to want to do all four. So we actually went got off the bus. And he said, this was the worst trip because I was I was trying not to make dua against this person the whole time, the whole time back on him, just making getting him back to get this guy and then bringing him back again. And it cost us a fortune, fortune. And he said he has never spoken to this person since then he'll never speak to this person again, since he did this to him. But so it is important. That's why the education is important. You go for hygiene know what you have to do. And
you know what you can afford, if for some reason you get sick, or you can't do it, or or you have to you have to admit or none of this hedge was invalid. And then you you still owe it to do it again.
Acceptance and validity are two different things. When you pray Maghrib right now you're straight Muslim, it's valid for Inshallah, the majority of us you made will do. He was doing for the Qibla. And then you You did all the the ritual, all the pillars of prayer were fulfilled. So it's valid, accepted, that's a different story. A different question. That's a whole different question. Asking that question to yourself is actually a really important one you should be asking yourself was accept accepted, and that will take you down a completely different path. But you can never actually for sure know that. So for hygiene, same thing, there are things that you require in order for your
house to be valid to say that I performed my hijab not accountable for performing and again, whether it was accepted and whether you got a uniform or something different. You prayed Muslim today, we pretty much humbly pray Maghrib We don't owe to pray Maghrib. Again, you don't have to pray it again. Like why it wasn't focused doesn't matter. Focus next prayer. The only time you would repeat Muslim is if it was invalid. Like your did not will do I forgot I thought I did it. And I remember I didn't have to do then you repeat it. Like, oh, I didn't actually I need what are you praying Moon for the majority of of muda hip, as long as whatever the it's up to the amount so you're fine. But
if we're praying alone, and you'll go I didn't refer to any of your humbly and Sophia and Maliki then you want to, I need to repeat that or if you're 100 feet and forgotten to do with the Haram, there are things that will make your prayer invalid that you'd have to repeat again. Acceptance is different for hire, I'm going to teach you the validity, how to make sure it's valid so that you can say I performed my hedge acceptance, that's a different story. That's why you learn the spirituality, the symbolism, so that the acceptance probability will go up to you learn why you're doing it so you can connect so you can actually do it well, and you can get the job okay.
The large amount of hedge I'm gonna I'm gonna move around a little bit.
So if you're gonna use the
so I don't know if I have this in English or not. So the word GMAT me these are the not the pillars but these are the obligatory actions within for the majority of muda began with the majority if you move the Scheifele out of this picture, and parts of the Hanafi madhhab they they all use terminology of pillars things that if you don't do your hydrogen either invalid or you stay within Hajj until you go back and do it like and some people will will postpone their survival if father which is the one of the pillars for like a month later they'll do it sometime in will haram and that's totally acceptable. They may Oh, obviously a hottie okay, I wish they may have already done
but you can totally do it you can stay at home the whole time and that's fine a lot of people do that and historically people used to do that a lot as well though it but you know don't want this one time before Can you can you can you go back one because there's not listening to me anymore
now if I did
then you have the obligatory actions with your actions that if you miss you don't your hygiene is invalid you just have you owe something you owe an explanation of some sort you have to perform a thorough or then you have certain hygiene, which are the recommended actions of hygiene that you don't owe anything if you don't do just like soda, if you miss a sunnah You don't owe anything you just keep on going try and do it again next time because there's a lot of children doing what he did how to his slot to a center, so there are different
denominations. This is not listening. Are you able to fix it?
I'm gonna put the obligatory actions for you inshallah. And then then the Sunon are pretty simple
okay, just just to refresh it and we can do it. So the amongst the YZ back to hydrogen, a number one is it the Quran from the Muppets? So I told that I picked the pillars. The concept of Haram is a is a pillar, where you have you have a certain moment you have to get into your home, and I'll explain that to you in terms of what that means, but doing it from the meat but is our job. So if you don't do it from the meat part if you don't
You're from the exact spot that you're supposed to do it, your height isn't working, then your hydrojet
functions. So the family part number two,
staying in Mina for the nights of tissue. So staying in Mina in the 11th 12th and 13th Night of the hijab, those are words. That's the logic now for everyone. Now for all four schools of jurisprudence, this halacha today is not designed for me to go through all of the difference of opinions within demographic. So if you follow a certain method, like I start by learning, okay, I'm just talking about what the majority of Medina have talked about without going into the details, or the difference of opinion because it's too it's too complicated. And there's no point of doing that here. Unless we're gonna, let's we're gonna design this as a flipper. mcaren Any
Halacha, which I don't think it's going to be standing in an alpha during the date, setting out about during the day from the morning until the guru, that's a worship. It's not a pillar, standing in alpha is a pillar, like, well, what's the difference? Well, the timing is a difference. So if you stack from the morning till Monday, you will perform the job and the father the same time. But if you miss the day and you come at night, come at night and you're standing out of it, it's the faces because you got the pillar, you didn't get the wajib so you're going to owe something you're going to always have to have a headache, but you've got the pillar so your hygiene, technically is valid
if you come to Ottawa after the first day of aid, you're too late. There's actually an opinion that accepts it but it's but it's only one it's very weak. So we taught we tend not to give the fight to on that. But but if you if you can't shout offer anytime, from the failure of the day of alpha to the federal of the day of aid, technically speaking, your hij is valid you have enough you have to have behind you that will solidify your hunch the word ship is you stand from the failure of the day of alpha until Maghrib and then Maghrib Phil Murphy law men who are farther nuts and you go and you go to miss Daddy for but you will come after your marketability of alpha you standing out over even
for 15 minutes. Even for a short bit of time your hedges still valid and that's the difference here of opinion. Staying in with his deliever that night the night of after the day of out so out of Tuesday for example the morning will be on a mountain in the evening the nighttime will be in was dead if I so saying was anybody's a worship if you don't do it, if you don't do it, your head is still valid you do off you do Oh something
throwing the gym out is an obligatory action the three Jamara that you have to throw the stones and I'll point them out for you in a moment and help autopsy which is either shaving your head or cutting your hair when you do to Holland is also a legend and then pull off and whatnot that the wife when you're leaving, the farewell fell off and you're leaving Mecca. Alright. So like I said there's two puffs. One of them is pillar. The other one is going to be a watch if you for the majority of scholars, some some school sees as a sunnah. So you would owe something. So what's the difference if you miss one of these you owe a hottie you're in this is oversimplifying, this is
oversimplifying this, you owe to perform at them, meaning you you offer Corbin and that is how you get out of doing one of these if you if you miss all of them. If you missed nearly all of them. You don't owe 100 For each one you already for all of them, you just do one you don't have to. And the only time you would require more is that if you performed a specific sin during Hajj, but if you just missed these things you don't if you miss one of these, you stay or you owe it until you go back and do it. You owe it or it is determined that your height is invalid. That's why if you miss out on a that's it your house is invalid if you if you show up any eight o'clock on the day of age
ready to perform you're
going to have to see it next year. Like just come back next year you're done if you didn't value because it had a specific time but the life and decide don't they don't have a specific time but have a set time and don't have any time doing before do it later do a month later doesn't matter. They have to be done though in order for your hedge to be to be complete.
The sooner are the recommended actions of hedge for example are if decides to play you meaning you have a shower before you get into your prom you smell good you're taking care of your hygiene tend to be performing tobyhanna Bake Allahumma bake on the way to hygiene throughout the hedge throughout the height it's also something that my family to get started so I'm did scholars differ on that point but we do have evidence that he did that allow us to auto send meaning when he was moving from Alpha was Eddie fan from was it fair to Mina for a minute to the Harlem that he would receive a big Allahu Milla bake on the way we have evidence for that not all scholars agree to it though just to
be clear, but often will do the third bow off. So the way this delightful Kudo, powerfully Faber and powerful whether these are the three of us, one of them is pillar, which one doesn't matter you have to do one. Once you do one then you've removed the pillar. If you want to do all great if you want to choose then choose the father and deliver that and sorry and because we're the last one is Well Jim and the first one is sooner like the if you don't do too awful for them. You're Not You don't owe anything like if you don't do it at all. This first one doesn't matter if you miss the two then you you owe a hoodie and if you if you miss one if you don't do not even one of them then you're
still in hygiene till you do one or your hygiene isn't valid. You have to do it again. Next
You're in the Bahamas where they put the men put their arm under their their right armpit so the shoulders are out for the first number of circulations of woman if you don't show up with it I think with the first three pull off
rounds you you do a look at the men do a bit of a jog he's all sudden if you don't do them no problem they're a bit old you got a knees hurt it's fine you just walk there's no issue do a tour like as after toe off and macabre him is a sunnah
it's impossible to do it I'm a clinical Rahim possible doesn't matter the time of the year. Doesn't matter the time of the year, the time if you go at 12 o'clock noon in the middle of the summer, you will definitely get it and then that's where you'll be buried as well. Like you'll do it and you'll die right there. Because you'll you won't be able to actually get up afterwards. Otherwise it's very difficult to get it is very, very busy. I was when I was young my father used to work in the house. I'm so used to drop me off I used to go and I was small and I had my little I used to always be able to get myself somewhere beside putting climate Brahim and pray beside McClung Brahim. So beautiful
thing to do. If you don't if you hadn't do it, just go back a bit and just keep it somewhere between your eyesight so that you're praying towards the Kaaba and Rahim is somewhere between you and the Kaaba and that suffices as well and against the Sunnah. So you try and do it. You don't you know, have to elbow people to get a subpoena done. Just make sure you do your your, your make sure that the pillars are done, make sure that the obligatory actions are done. You don't do the suddenness. It's really not a problem at all.
decisiveness, drinking zamzam and then istilah and so this dilemmas and you go to the Blackstone you put your hand or you kiss it or you make dua SDRAM happens in different ways doesn't always have to be Jani, the case it can be anything else.
So here the adequacy of hijab, I will share this presentation to you if you if you want to if you're if you're if you're thinking of going to hijab software. So let's talk about some of these basics. So let's talk about how long is really interesting.
Now that I talked about the UN, I'm not gonna talk about jurisprudence anymore. No more. I explain to you the Philippines. Now you understand how what's a pillar? What's the obligatory? What's the Sunnah, you owe things for the obligatory actions that you miss. You don't owe anything for the Sunnah, which are usually Oh is the slaughtering of a huddle for and that's given to the poor. If you miss a pillar, then your height isn't valid until you do it, you have to you is not complete until you do it or invalidate, you miss it, you have to do it again next year. And that's the jurisprudence in a nutshell. I need some of my teachers would kill me knowing that I oversimplified
it this week. But that's kind of what you need, in terms of the symbolism is where I think it's important for you to understand the value of this Hallum, for example, because I have made a slight mistake, okay, good. So, which is a very simple, it's a really simple thing. It's just this.
What it serves as
it serves as a moat as a moment of transition is your transition, you go from one mindset to another. And all of everything in Islam has within it that when you transition mentally, you transition physically. So in prayer, the reason that we go up and down is because each and every moment movement has within it an obligation that's different than the other. You don't recite Fatiha during your sujood races. Subhanallah get out even when you stand up. No, there are certain things you say because you're supposed to have a specific mentality in that movement. So it's a mental transition that is accompanied by a physical one that suits it, that's suitable. So when you're
reading the Quran, you stand up straight, because you're saying the words of the almighty himself supposed to do it standing up straight. When you show gratitude for all your blessings. You don't you're not in a humble position with your face on the ground. No, that means that whoever gave you blessings didn't do a very good job. Look how bad you look. So you do your gratitude, standing up, standing up, because you're the only one of the few creations that have had the posture that you do. And when you want to submit to God you do it you bow that's what bowing means it's showing, it's a show of submission that I am telling you I am I am making it clear that I'm not equal to you in any
way. So I bow and when you want to ask for something, because you're speaking to the Almighty in your creation, you put your face on the floor and a show of complete humility. So every movement is has some mental transition is a mental state status that has a physical status this suits it. So Iran is the same thing.
Iran is when you so it comes from the same root aroma, something being sacred, uh huh. Rama
actually got is you're entering a state of sanctity.
You're entering a state of sanctity now. What you're putting in not only are you doing it mentally, so what further well gee dollar weather for Sue. None of those behaviors will be acceptable hijo appointment a moment but you're doing it also physically. You're taking off the garments of this dunya you're putting all that away all that money can make all that your wealth and your your other journey has brought you you're going to put that aside. You're going to get you're going to put down to put on two pieces of an
sewn cloth, just piece of cloth. And that's you're gonna look, you're going to look simple, and you're gonna look humble. And you're gonna go back to the origin of the human experience, which is very simply just, you're just covering your Outre for men, at least for women is little bit different. But the same concept is there when the man or the woman sees men doing it, you understand that this is what she's supposed to be going in as well. So it's like you're transitioning, you're leaving, you're hanging you're you're you're doing you're behind now you're entering it's like you're entering a different reality.
Really, what the hell am I supposed to do it was allow you to put your old reality behind you all of your problems, all of your worries, all of your fears, your ambitions, but put them behind. Now, enter, enter into a state of sanctity. And to make it even more real, you have something called the limb you caught. It, let me pass is a is the place that you do it. It's like it's like a portal.
It says if these are like, I don't know if you ever seen them before, these are the 12345 portals. So your landline will offer the flavor that elephant communism
and the department ism had these spots for people coming from certain directions. And when you came for hunch, if that moment is where you perform from, it's like this is the portal before you enter before you you enter the Haram you come in towards the bottom now before you enter leave everything behind. You know when you go to the airport, you take off your shoes and put your keys and for a moment there you feel a little bit kind of vulnerable because you haven't
like it it's a very weird feeling when you started the airport with everything is in that bin over there and they may give it back to you and they could easily just not give it back to you. When you go to Iran This means caught me caught is that is the timing or the or the spot. So work this time. kneepad means a place in time McCartney's a place and time so it's both at the same time you're coming this is the place this is the time leave everything of your previous life behind please enter and you're gonna look at to
you're gonna look real simple.
All of your status all of your wealth leave that all behind Please now enter in the state of sanctity that you're going to carry understand this journey so so the moment you start that of course we don't do this anymore as the way we should because it's always happening in planes like somewhere in the plane they'll tell you we are over I think it's I think it's about it isn't is it all about it? I haven't I haven't done it from here but I think you're over about Alibaba you're over it's called actually there's so you're right on top of that flavor. So now enter into your ROM you can do it before that you can do it after that because it's not a pillar is it haram is a pillar
doing it at any thought is Allah Jim so most people just do it any at any point and perform yeah need the data and for aamra It's not as difficult you can do it any at any point as well. I'm gonna is different. How does Morris is more rigid and those rulings. But that's what this means. But is there some eclecticism and when you're caught in makan, so it's a specific time and place where you go, you leave everything behind, and you enter simply, in a simple matter, y'all can come to your LORD with all of your jewelry, and all of your your money. No, no, you're not coming with your, with your xOP, you're gonna come very simply, just two pieces of clothing, barely covering yourself.
That's how you're gonna want to go to Allah subhanaw taala on this journey, where you're looking for something, or you're looking for something, okay.
And this is like a little bit of a, where they kind of there's, they're around. So so the farthest away is actually the data, it's not that heavy. If I don't know why this guy made a mistake, is there anything about it, it's the farthest away from from the cops like 400 kilometers away everything else as you can see much more much closer to the bottom. The same same thing here. So you can see a little bit of a just so you know what Milwaukee are. So now you know what I mean? Cost is when you hear the word you know what that means. This is the place that you will make the Haram is the place where you transition. It's like well life like a portal, like I'm going to enter once I
enter, I enter I'm different, I leave everything behind. I can't walk through with my you know, with my money and my wealth and my status and my names and all the letters before my name. And afterwards, I'll leave all that behind the walk in with two pieces of clothing. And you're going to Allah subhanaw taala as simply as you as you were brought into this world.
The three prohibitions of hydrogen is something I took from one of the authors on on the issues of hedge. He calls him that hedges that other three knows that he knows, I didn't know you're not allowed the three. So why are they? I think you all know them. All you're talking about. So now, what if Asuka will he does? Well, first, anything sexual?
Anything? No expression of any form of sexuality at all. Doesn't matter towards whom doesn't matter in what context you put, you do not want to enter this portal. Once you pass through, not you leave your sexuality behind. You're not here to get married. You're not going to be romantic with your wife. You're not going to be nothing. You're here you see people as people, you do not see them through the lens of your sexuality as a human being. This is what life means offer.
does not mean love is actually the word that is used to refer to what two spouses will do a husband or wife will do together, it was not haram. Outside of that's why Hindi like a little CML refer to it and he said he commits Halal on the night of Ramadan to perform rough. So profit is haram. Obviously Usina is now
and a million times more hubbub and heights than it is any other time. But the idea here is that when you enter this, this portal, you you set aside, your sexuality, you put that aside, you're gonna see people without that lens, you're not going to see people like that you're gonna start thinking about things differently. So that's who you are. We're all sexual beings. And we think like that, but not during hutch, during how you're going to put that that's the transition. That's why we're changing. This is the whole point, if you can't do all this stuff, then you're not, if you don't understand this is what you're required to do, whatever. So you're not going to deviate and
hedge and hide, you're not going to look for the easiest way out, you're not there to sin, and you're not there to disobey, you're coming in with full obedience and full commitment with what Allah has taught you. So no sexualization of anything, no disobedience. Well as you done, no interest in argument or, or personal problems, other people, you're not, you're not coming into hij with any interest of confronting people, of defending yourself, or pointing out people's mistakes, of getting into arguments or trying to correct other people's behavior, none of that is of interest to you.
You don't sexualize human beings, you're not disobeying your Lord, you're not in it for any form of confrontation. Why? Because you have a specific goal. Because you're looking for something in order for you to find what you're looking for, you have to be able to set aside all of these other problems. Because these are distractions. You dull, why do we argue with people we try to become we tried to prove our superiority. If I argue with you, I'm trying to prove you're wrong, who myself right. And then I feel good.
Because I know when you don't. And until next time, I'm more knowledgeable than you are. Or I pointed out your mistake in front of everybody. And I didn't wasn't making the mistake at the time. But once
so I am one step ahead of you. So you don't do judo, there's no none of that status struggle. There's no facade, the facade because when you deviate.
So it's not about sin. Alone. I still have Bermuda Noah, when it leaves, leaves, the seed leaves the origin of it. You're not trying to be special. You're not different. In life, we try to be better we trying to be get ahead, we try to achieve more. That's what we try to do is fine. And hedge. You don't you're just one of the people you actually try to blend in. I'm not I'm not special. I'm just I'm just one of all these millions. I'm just one of his creation like anyone else. There's nothing about me that no, I'm not superior or better or different. That will suit me I'm not trying to be I'm not trying to be different. I'm not trying to set myself aside, I'm not going to treat myself
different than I see myself differently. I'm not gonna be selfish because I believe that somehow I have more rights than people around me. No, I'm just one of all these people. And I'm not sexualizing which is a huge, obviously another problem. I'm not seeing people through that lens, very beautiful, very meaningful, these three things in hij. Because in order for you to achieve your goal of height, if you want to actually find what you're looking for, you have to put these things aside, you have to stop focusing on ourselves being the center of universe No fullsuit I'm not special. I can't sexualize things a lot of us and I can't be trying to prove I'm better unless you
do it and then and put all that aside. But all that petty parts of being a human being a site don't get into that, that primitive part of our of our instincts and our existence. Put that aside when you enter it when you enter the portal of Islam and enter Hajj.
Teletubby It's beautiful, beautiful. Well, I want to I can I can barely ever tell the story honestly, like, emotionally is so huge. I just thought of what the words mean. Like there's so meaningful. They really are. They don't have the Quran and things the Prophet alayhi salatu salam said, so whether you feel told them to say them specifically or whether he just said them because that's what came out of his pure heart are your thoughts I don't know. But either way doesn't matter. The bake Allah Humala bake the baker, Cherie cola cola bake in Alhambra, when near metallic will molk luxury calendula Baker bake means I am coming to you. I'm on my way as quickly as I can in
full satisfaction and pleasure that I'm allowed to come to you. The bake is not just I'm on my way quickly, I'm doing it and I owe you for coming to you not the opposite. It's not like I'm doing your favor. No no, you're doing me a favor by allowing me to even come that's why it's a beautiful thing for you know whenever students to their teachers or children to their parents, when they're called upon to bake is a beautiful response because it means I'm coming immediately. I'm not late I'm not gonna I'm not distracted and i You don't owe me anything for this IOU thank you for allowing me the opportunity which is a huge so the basic hola Erica repeating that same word. It's one word in
Arabic That means this whole all of that so that's what it means if they knew that the bake Allah Humala, bake the bake Allah Surely there is no there's no other God but
You will bake and he's given are repeating those four times now, even if he's the same word in that 100 All praise when intimates and all bounty like belong to you will milk and sovereignty that actually belongs to luxury collector is the one but you love Bake. I'm on my way. And he's saying the earliest slot was that I mean that's a hardware thing they let you see the whole time they got to Mecca when they did their 100 to a double.
They had no voices left. When they arrived that day, everyone's voice was was all gone because the whole time the profit is done with a bake Allahumma singing it and UbD came to him and told him ya rasool Allah Morris Hi, Becca, in the UK, obviously, most of us have like a failure to file or swear to home but tell via that Allah sends his son and says, Tell your your companions to raise their voices as they perform this Tobia as they as they established and they acknowledged their their willingness and their yearning to come to Allah subhanho wa taala. And to return to him returning father a better word honestly, to return to Allah willing willfully in love and feeling his his his
bounty upon them is a very beautiful, so tell him he has a really nice part of hedge. I mean, you don't have to lose your voice when you do it. But but you know, make sure that you perform to be and we don't, we can't do it
during these days as they can, but we have the alternative of ticket view and to speak and to Hamid. So the technique that you performed the night of our for the morning of aid, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Allah, Allah, Allahu Akbar, Allah will lead hand in and all the other variations that every culture has differently, you can do them if you don't know them. A lot of people you're telling me we don't know the other parts, like the when you do the, the technologically the other parts, we don't know what they are. And that's fine, because that's that's called surely variable. You know, every culture has a little bit of a different way of continuing it doesn't matter, just do the basics. And
that's more than enough. But that could be the telly in the hand of Allah subhanaw taala is the equivalent of them doing telopea Because you're not unfortunately you're not on your way. But see, now I've made you want to be if you feel like you missed out, because you would love to be able to celebrate along with a big but you can't because you're not actually on your way. You're not allowed to see it because you're not actually going there. So that'll just make you want to go and show it next year. May Allah grant us the ability to perform Hajj. And I always tell people like when you get married, take your wife for Hajj.
Well, the most important thing take her off for Hajj before you have kids.
For sure, before you have kids, once you have kids, I said You're done. You're gonna wait until they're old enough to either leave them with somebody who won't kill them, or you take them with them with you. And then you try not to kill them there. And then it's not it's not an enjoyable endeavor. When you do you have to wait until they're old enough until you can actually learn from it. But to definitely perform Hajj I think I think it's something we should consider when we talk to young couples who are looking to get married Hajj, is you don't you fast Ramadan, not up years ago, golden from your hunch, I came from a country where it wasn't an option. You have to be like over 60
in order for it to even be something you could think about oh, you would go as a butcher. Like as a man you could go as a butcher like and then you get your hydro but you're you're you're working as a butcher, they're like you're doing it as a job that your wife can go with you. So she ends up but women end up not being able to go to hydro they are taking when their 70s and it's too late. And if you want to go on your tongue. So here's the the Tobia,
beautiful, beautiful chant and I needed it's just it's just amazing.
So, circumambulation, which is the luff, I'm not gonna use that word anymore. It's a very annoying word, I guess you'll still off. Bluff is one of the main, one of the four pillars of hydrogen with difference of opinion amongst them in their head. So don't worry if you if you follow different methods, and it's not there. But let me just make the offer really simple. A love is you being in a synchrony with the universe, it doesn't happen very often. But it's when it happens. Everything in this universe from the smallest observable, existing part of the atom, to the largest part of the observable universe into the center of galaxies, everything, everything is continuously rotating
counterclockwise around just center. Everything rotates around the center, you are made from molecules that are rotating around their center right now you sit there, you're made of a couple of trillion molecules stuck together, all of them, there's an nucleus and everything is rotating around his center, everything. This goes from the delta to the Manjaro, as they say, from the the atom to the to the Galaxy, and then you go and you were in for a moment you're in synchrony with everything else, you are also rotating counterclockwise around your center, the first house that was ever put for the purpose of worshiping Allah subhanaw taala. And that's, that's the beauty. Of course,
there's 120 of this, and they just perform throw up because that's what Ibrahim Ali's did when he rebuilt the Kaaba. And that's what all of the autumn didn't know that the prophet Isaiah saw Sam did. It's a beautiful, beautiful act of worship by the way, it's amazing. I used to love doing thought it just you just walk, you know, taking a walk is is Punic on its own and when you do it and you're not really forced to figure it out your your, your pathway, you take a right or take a left so it's a really, you just the movement is repetitive our brain
He's actually, you know, crave repetitive movements. They told that that's if you look at again, philosophically, if you look at the human experience, we are very much we love repetition, we love rep any, any repetitive movements bring out a lot of joy for us. And there's something that if you look kids who remember a sport, if I, if I'm sitting and the kind of tech team, and some people think they're moving back and forth, they shift on to this. No, no, they just do this. It because when you move, and it's repetitive movement, it helps the brain focus for sure where percentages helps the brain focus. There are stories from Nolan poets where they would go, and they would ever
see, they used to have these huge when before the era where we were able to
harvest wheat with those big with these big machinery, you'd have like this, this stick with this horrific looking sword at the end of it is one of those was a call a cipher just a horrific looking thing. This thing is like ready, this is what you would use to kill like six people at the same time. But but when it was used for harvesting weed, it's just this repetitive movement. And there's like, there are poets who would go specifically to do this only because when they did this,
they did it enough times, they would get into a position where they were able to actually say poetry, because they're repetitive of the movement, repetitiveness of the movement, put them in the right mental position to have clarity. So any movement that is repetitive is very helpful for the human brain. So when you look up off, whether it's rotating around a center, whether it's the walk, whether it's the repetitiveness of the movement is the closest to Allah, this is home, this is house upon this is the first this is your center. When we stand here, we're going to pray in a few minutes. When you stand here, and you put your hands up, where are your hands going? What Why are
you doing this? What's the point of doing this, you're doing this, this is Bismillah Allahu Akbar from here. That's what this is. Because when you worked on Bluff, you stand towards Vulcan. And then you go, Allahu Akbar or Bismillah Hello, what did the concept is that there could be a lot of buttons, then you go on, you perform a follow up and every time to come by you turn back and do this. So we stand in prayer, what we're doing is this exact same thing. We're towards the Kaaba, and it's Allahu Akbar, the same thing, you're still focused on your center, you've never lost it. Like when you go back there, you will never lost that you were doing it every day, five times and it is
not it's not like this is the first time you you're doing it, you're doing it right now. You're gonna do it tomorrow morning as well. Every single time you're focused on your center you don't worship the house, the house is not the target of your worship but it's your center is the center that symbolizes the one whom you worship Subhanallah without you rotate around it, you're not rotating around it or, or doing pull off. Because it in its own sense is sacred is because the one who put it there was sacred. Because Allah subhanaw taala committed that's going to be my house and other money instead and built it with the mala. And then time had its effect on it as time has an
effect on everything. And it was rebuilt in history multiple times, the scholar was talking about new, highly semi built, rebuilding and dying in Makati. He said, um, and then Ibrahim is somebody building it and then and then it falling again. And then during the time of the of Gehenna, before the Prophet Allah, you saw some prophecy, they rebuilt it again. And then this has happened a couple of times because it was rebuilt, it doesn't matter the spot is still the same. The place is still known to people that this is where Allah says, this is your center. So you go and you perform this beautiful ritual.
I'm not gonna go I'm running out of time. So I'm not gonna do all of this. But these are just
specific points that you should know about their four corners quarters to the copper. So this one here where the hydro is split, and then you have Iraqi Shami and Alia money. Right? So
Shan has been looking a lot closer look in Yemen has looking and then the rest of you don't have a look, unfortunately.
No, it's only called the corner of a certain country because it was pacing hypothetically towards that country. So that's that they just named it based on where they thought the geographically was facing. It's actually not very accurate, but doesn't matter. These are the four that was the music. The reason I'm sharing this with you is that you know, when you hear the words, what can this you know what we're talking about, and it will what's being talked about, you understand the most DISM is this little area over here. This is the hydraulic fluid. You see this line here, this is where you turn and say Bismillah, Allahu Akbar, and you continue to walk and go around, you come to that
line, Allahu Akbar, and then you go around and seven times. And then there's the door of the Kaaba and right between the door and the high yield is the militarism is where the Prophet alayhi salam would go and smother himself and make dua and sob SallAllahu Sallam and I've been lucky to actually go and do that a few times in my life. Especially if you choose if you choose the right times, if you go the right time of the year, you can get it like if you go really really early in the morning at three o'clock to four o'clock and it's the right time where it's not Hydra or Ramadan or something, you actually get access to them to them. So I always say if you go to choose actually the
times of year where no one wants to do Amara so the guys yesterday said don't do it in December No, no, go do it in July. Like what if no one was going so it's empty. So you actually get access you can actually make it if you just if you time it correctly, you can actually get to them with doesn't mean get to the hotel. You can actually experience the car but the way you'd actually want to experience it. So it's called prejudice. Now you
I'll just point out this piece for you that I'll move on.
Of course, it's called the Brooklyn budget. Last one. This corner is the hydrilla sweetcorn, obviously, this part of the Kaaba is, this is the part of the cup, this little piece here. So the cabin is actually not supposed to be a cube is a cube with a little bit of a Yanni
half us circle in front of it. And that's called prejudice me that's where it's made it histogram was it was left during the time when, when hijo Ali Hassan was walking back and forth, so he was left to go to smile. But when they rebuilt the cavity for the Valley, it's awesome prophecy, they left it out, they didn't have enough rock didn't have enough material. So they left it out. And we just it was just kind of shown that it was still there. And the provider also had the intention of rebuilding it but didn't, it didn't out of fear of people finding it really difficult to see him.
Really tearing down the cabin rebuilding it didn't want to shake people's faith. So we left it and it was left until this day, no one actually ever rebuilt it again. Which makes the car look like a lock. If you look from above, and actually be looked at at the cabin from above. Not sure I put a picture of it here or not. Maybe I didn't maybe didn't right there.
Looks like a lock, doesn't it? Yeah, there's a key for every lock is there is a key for every lock.
I think that's enough. In terms of information that you need to know. So you're not allowed to prepare to pray a folder inside of this because inside the cabinet for all obligatory salon you can pray inside the cabin, and to pray outside the cabin. But suddenness, you can pray inside the cabin. And where you face is an issue of issue of difference among scholars. And it's actually quite amusing to study it because they differ on in a really cool way. And they all have their own ways of where to do it. Because the the narrations of those of the profiles on the Sahaba actually differ in terms of which way they they faced and, and I believe it doesn't matter where you face inside the
Kaabah honestly, but but if you pray here you face towards the carpet. So it's easy when you're in it to smell you. It's always nice if you go to pray to Santa Monica. So here's my calling Brahim. It's not that far away from the Kaaba, actually, if you go behind a little bit, you can always find a spot where you can
where you can pray.
Alright, so that's the Kaaba. That's the love. That's McClymont, Brahim Longstone is remembered or he must have stood when he was rebuilding it.
I say are striving I'm gonna talk about that Inshallah, during my, my, the whole book elite, so I won't go into too much detail. All you need to know right now is that this is where and this is what it looks like. This design is No, sir. It's a bit long. It's not it's not. It's not short. But it's a beautiful. It's a beautiful ritual on its own. This is where how God said, I'm walking back and forth. Keep that in mind that you're walking in the footsteps of a woman.
There is no man who did this before that that is it that we're following in terms of significance. Ibrahim didn't do this later. The only person who this was Hjelm. So when we go in walk, we are walking in the footsteps of Hudson on the Hudson. She was a lady who was enslaved. And then she was freed and she married Ibrahim on Instagram. And she went through all these tribulations and walk in her footsteps. That's why we do this. There is no other reason. No one else did this. And they say Oh, well, it was because she did it in some No, no, there's no this is the only person who did this. It thought oh well marijuana is for hydroponics and walked in. It's a very important, I think on its
own has a lot of symbolism and its own, that we're walking in the footsteps of one of the great women to ever live one of the greatest women to ever live on. He has a lot twisted up. So just keep that in mind. So you do seven you start with a sofa, and then you go to medulla. You can still see technically GABA from a sufferer. If you're able to position yourself appropriately you can see and that's the son of the son that brought back here we will see we stand on the sofa. He was tourists around the Kaaba, he would do Tallinn you say Hola Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola. Sharika hamdulillah coalition de la isla in the LA who had the who
was the Kava is agenda who has an Alexa who will make all this dua and he was telling me do I need to go down tomorrow I was telling him how do I turn towards the Kaaba do the same thing here. So let's dive into them. So you start with software because you do seven. So it's not seven as in, go go one, no, seven, eight and 123467. So that's how you ended up. For 4567. You end up you end up at Marvel you struggle suffer and you end up with Marwa there's a lot of symbolism in that as well but I'm gonna leave that inshallah talk about that during the eightfold bus. So I pointed out for you and show with me because it's very meaningful. There is some maps.
Alright, so here's the Alpha. Here's mas de femme here is Mina. Here's the Haram but it looks like I have a better I think I have a better one than this one.
A little bit better. Maybe not. Yeah.
All right. So he's a bit so it's around 1314 kilometers from alpha to the Hello Miss it's quite it's it is it is quite a walk. It's not it's not close you that's why you just take a couple of days for you to do this when you do this over a few days in terms of walking or anything else that the last map Yeah, so So nine kilometers from alpha to Zoeva. Five and a half from instead of a demeanor eight from technically speaking so altogether you
Got it around 20 Something kilometers to walk. But again, it's not it's not as bad as it sounds, you'll be fine. You'll survive the walk.
The point that you should know is that when we say the word haram, so, so you entered a state of sanctity
and you're going to enter the Haram which is a place of sanctity.
Out of us not inside the hell
out of us in the hell
out of it is in the hell was Dilip and Minar are a part of the halal was the halal meat. So the boundaries of Mecca that are considered the HUD on the sacred land, the Holy Land, that once you enter there are a number of rules you have to follow. And then there's the hill so if you go to Mecca today as a city, now all of Mecca is haram. There's a lot of Mecca that is hell we lived in the hell we lived in part of it is do is outside of Harlem, so you wouldn't live inside the Harlem living very difficult because a lot of rules that apply you're in the end, it's easy to enter the Harlem into the holy land now a lot of rules apply. So our offer is actually outside the boundaries
of the Harlem is in the hill. And there's a really nice it analogy that the monks have fairly filthy would give on this. I always thought this was really interesting, because they asked him Yeah, hmm. Why is out of find the hara and the hill? It doesn't seem to make a lot of sense that out of phase outside the actual Harlem. So that's what he said. He said, You're coming to Allah subhanaw taala you're turning to Allah. So so his, his God, but his house.
This is his home. Right? And the Haram is this. The boundaries are the fence of his home.
And right outside of his every home is a door. That is right. Literally the Haram begins after Autofit. Here's Ottawa, the boundary of the Haram and there's the haram. So you're like well just push this here. So there now this could be a part of the home. So no, it is specifically made outside because you stand on the door.
So you'd go to stand you stand on his door Subhana wa Tada. And you cry and you make dua and you speak and then he tells you this is how it works. You start with the Autofit you stand there you stand there all day, you continue to speak to Allah subhanaw taala and humiliate yourself on his footsteps on the footsteps of his eye at his doorstep soprano data until he tells you to come in. So you come in and you enter go through the door now you're in the in the area of every house, every Arabic would always have the house. You're inside the house, but not inside the house yet you're still and you spend that night was Daddy found the home and then you go to the minute a minute
where's the second door and then once you're ready, he allows you into his home Subhana wa Tada and this was an analogy that thought of fights on the Hill for a reason who started his door supine and trying to bless you and bless you bless you when he locks you into the first door so now you're in the in the Haram you stay there a night you stare the next night and then he allows you subhanaw taala to actually enter into his house and be apart
and why can't you perform cm during these are young tissues? He said because the guest of Allah does not starve himself. So when you're inside once you've entered the sudden so you don't fast during the days of tertiary like you're not supposed to fast out offer you fast outside the door, not for hygiene you shouldn't but the cons are you You're fast. But once you get allows you in you shouldn't fast anymore because now you're his guest because once you've entered the home as your his guests upon it without you don't fast, because it's an appropriate for his guests upon without to go hungry. We just while you perform, you're over here, and you've got a brand new feed, because no one
should go hungry that day. You're at his guests apana without him. So the analogy is there are very, very beautiful from that perspective now to actually completely run out of time.
I am very bad with time management, aren't I? I'm not good at this. So let me point out maybe for you what, what matters what what actually matters, in terms of the symbolism. All right. So the reason that you're going here,
when Adam and Hawa Allah, he
left the garden, the agenda
after they made a mistake, and they were kicked out.
Obviously, they repented. And Allah subhana accepted their apprentice, but now they were no longer allowed back to where they once were. No one likes to be kicked out of something and not allowed back in. Especially after the apologize. It stinks. If you're part of something, make a mistake, you're expelled, you want to be able to go back and you're told no, you're not allowed to come back anymore. And you're in essence, that's the end of it. Even though you apologize and you wish you weren't allowed to go back to it hurt.
We don't know. But they lost each other for a while. And maybe that was a symbolism of them losing themselves a little bit coming into a state of not knowing who they playing the blame game a little bit, maybe feeling that one of the some one of them should have helped the other they didn't. We don't know but they they weren't around each other for a while and they spent some time apart. What out often is called alpha because that's where they finally found each other again, this is the this is the significance of this area. The significance of this area
The importance of it is as this is where your father and your mother reunited again, and these are the steps that they reunited through out of Arcata, hey, through our demo, where he saw her. And he saw she saw him, they saw each other.
And that's where the story of our existence begins. US where we come from, when you stand there with the millions of people on our sofa, from every walk of life, from every ethnicity from every race, we all are united by the two people who stood here. At the beginning, it's like, it's like, we go back to the reunion of our parents every year, they go back to where they found each other, but not even, and not just physically know, symbolically as well. Where because they knew each other before that, but something happened. They made a mistake mistake that cost them a lot. Forget about what it cost you I know we get very selfish about it. Even in Be quiet, you don't know what you're talking
about the cost them It didn't cost you, you were never in Jannah you're in the guard, you'd have no idea what you're talking about it cost them they're the ones who lost, the other ones are in a position with Allah subhanaw taala. That was very beautiful. And they lost that it was taken away. To me one mistake, they made one mistake. They didn't even get a second chance. They weren't offered the ability to No, no, they wouldn't have mistaken they're kicked out. And they had to go and figure things out all over again. And it caused them a lot of pain, a lot of suffering of agony, they went and saw the reality of the nature of nature that basically produce them in the way that they are.
And they had to come to certain conclusions. And it's like when they were ready, when they were ready when they were good and ready to make some decisions that were needed to be made. They Allah subhanaw taala Yes. So facilitated for them to be reunited again. So they saw each other and they knew out of a means. If you took the word out of iron law firm and just put it as a verb, it means to know.
What did they know?
What are you looking for?
What are you looking for on this journey, and there's you're looking for something outside, you're looking for something, what did they know, they knew something. Things were clear to them. They knew what it was they had to do. They knew what they did. They knew what they need to do.
So there was there was no, there was not even there was there was knowledge. There was an understanding, thought of them with the he knew her she knew him and they knew also what it was that they did, and what it was that they needed to do. So that's where they they saw each other and then lose delivers deliver is when two things come together when they physically come together. And that's where I didn't how actually physically reunited. Because this is where they saw each other out off is where the actual visualization occurred. So you stand there. And then it was Geneva where they actually came together. And then Mina minute cut means the word only it means a wish. It's
plural is Mina, plural love it. This is where they figured out what they were hoping to do. This is where they planned out what the next steps are going to look for them. This is how you get that and that's what you have that first, the first Gemorah Yamaha is significant Ibrahim, and it's also significant to add them Alehissalaam because that's where Chevron came to them again, if I didn't want this, you want to prove quickly to God that this was not going to work. You went to that both of them were not worthy of anything, they weren't gonna figure this out, they weren't going to make the right choices, they were gonna continue to make their mistakes. He wanted to be able to prove to
God that they were not worthy. And so when they knew, and then as Jennifer, they came together and the United physically and appropriately,
Emily's got scared, this wasn't good. So he came to them for Gemma. So they they stoned him to get away. And then in Mina, they made their plans. And then Allah subhanaw taala introduced him to their his house, and they built the house. And you go and you walk in those footsteps every year, every year, you go back to your to our family reunion, we go back to where all of this began, where the story originated from, where it originated appropriately, you don't go back to the tree where the you know, we go back to where this originated properly, where they figured out what it is they were going to do, who they were, why they were here, why things happened the way they did and what they
were going to do moving forward. And each movement of hedges symbolizes and an aspect of that. And you're walking in those footsteps so that you can actually experience the feeling and experiencing experience. The idea is that if if, if you love your parents love and one of them passes away, you will hold on to sentimental aspects of who they were. Maybe a place maybe a thing, maybe maybe even just a restaurant or, or a park or a bench something that they enjoy something they set a place where you enjoyed their company or you didn't used to love. So when you go back to out of an MS delissa and Mina and the Haram when you walk down, you walk this journey, you walk it, you're just
walking in the footsteps of your parents. And your and of course the lessons that come from that are in abundance, like the number of lessons, honestly, they just just by just by understanding what I said there are an endless number of lessons. You can choose whatever one works for you. Whether it's the unity of this of this human race, whether it's the understanding
of why it is we are the way we are and what we hope to achieve in our lives. And what is why Allah spawn the Creator just like they figured it out. And they made their plans, you go back and you walk in the same footsteps to do the same. You supposed to go to Otto so that you you figure it out, you know, you know now why you're here. Can you stand there and you're supposed to achieve that Maddie for that Arafa right there. And then you go and you spend that and even in a forum in a time of is de la for you bring yourself closer.
If you ever heard the word that you've already bought a Allah he's certified bring us closer to the word certify means to be close. So you bring yourself closer you start figuring out what used to. And then in Mina is where you use you make your ambitions, if you have your wishes, what you hope for, where are you hope to? Where are you hoping to go with all of this? What is your long term plan? You figured that out and hudge and then you go back to your center and you perform your toe off and you're saying your rituals as a person who now understands who they are and where they're going. It's very meaningful. It's very, it's a very, very meaningful experience. If you walk it's
understanding the origin of who was here, and why we're standing on a mountain and a mountain in the middle of nowhere.
Not because no, there's importance here. Is your parents stood here. Your parents, you understand that? I don't think we do. I don't think we do. I think we're still we're so
compartmentalized as as a race. So divided, that we don't even comprehend that none of us belong to Adam and how about more than the other? Like, I don't belong to him or her more than you do?
Like maybe as a as a if you're a pushy, right? You can say I belong to Mohamed Salah Mohammed, I have a little bit more than maybe me or someone who from the subcontinent or some Muslim from North America. Fine. But none of us belong to Adam and Eve more than the other. We belong to them equally. Because we're all their children. And standing there and realizing that I think is very important. I mean, it's a bit isn't that what isn't that? Why is AutoSum said those words that they mean? Think about it? Oh, yeah, he chose me never really I don't think we analyzed it appropriately. During the Farewell Sermon. I'm sorry, I'm not able to go through the whole thing for you. But during the
Farewell Sermon, he said words that we celebrate and we like telling people that sees what he said. But do you realize where he said them?
Did you take a moment to see where he said that? He said them there? He could have said this anywhere else but you said it on that moment? In? Are you on NASA in Europe back home warhead? What about warhead? Go look only Adam the moment to ARB. Allah Allah Abdullah Arabi In Allah Allah Jimmy invalidly me and I'll be
available in the Toccoa in economical Mandela he taught from Allah Allah, Allah whom efficient indeed or people your Lord is but when your father is but when you all come from Adam, Adam comes from the salt of the earth, there is no advantage for an autumn over a non autumn or for an hour over an autumn. There's no advantage for a white man over a black men or black men are red men or red men over a yellow man. There's no advantage except through Taqwa. The highest ranked in the eyes of God are the ones who have the most Taqwa have I conveyed the message. They said, Allahumma now and he said, Allahumma Fashola be my witness.
He said it then.
That's why he said that, and he said, why he's saying it then. Because that's what the point of this is. We're back to our origins. This is where it all began. This is where they stood. And this is where we are. And that if that's not meaningful, I don't know what else is like I don't I don't know what else could be that more more than that feeling and walking this journey. The journey of Autohome was Delhi for Mina al haram, walking the footsteps of Adam and Eve as they figured out as they learned as they came closer as they plan and as they built the cup as they went through these the stages of acceptance or realization and clarity, which allowed them to they never sinned again.
Either of them.
Either of them, He never sinned again. It was a one time thing happened at first it was a part of being human was the only part of being human that they were able to actually appreciate just this one sin never did again. So don't complain too much about about that. And focus really on the story that was that came of it. And the beauty of the story and that's what hydro is about.
Another thing that hydro is about, I have four minutes left to break this down for you which is not going to work. But it's also about the story of Ibrahim so when you when you study Hajj
so here's Mina is where you stay. So you go to our office during the day you stay sleeping was delivered that night, and then you spend the rest of hij in minutes going to the gym or not to throw the gym rat or going Portola for insight and then coming back to Milan you spend another two or three nights come and dad Jennifer your main effect your family heal my daughter, but your family him and his doctors usually is for two nights after the day of not after the day or for three. It's really not a problem. You can do whatever you want, but this is what it looks like. And I think I have a picture of the gym a lot
if this will work
is a better picture.
This is all a minute or so here. There's a lot
here the 3d model that you're going to throw. So
I have time I don't think I have time
All right, so how do you throw a jump? Right, you throw Giamatti Autobahn first and then you do the three jab right after that in a row. So I think I did the math for you. So if you throw them three times, let's say there's three so you throw seven into seven rocks and two and three times. So that's what for each genre is 2121 times three is what?
And then you throw the gen two aka on the day of number ones. So that's all what 70 Alright, so you end up leaving 70 Hustle yet seven for jam o'clock by the first day they have not and then throughout the next few days, you will throw each you go through three and then the next day three then the third day three and then you're done. So altogether, you seven seven, you hustle yet if you throw none of these at all, your ideas still valid you owe a hoodie, but your head is still valid. Why because we went talked about this the beginning Snod are looking right for the majority of scholars at least. So you can afford not to do it, even though you should definitely do it because
it sounded the first one. But then the other times is actually a symbolism of someone else. The symbolism of what happened with Ibrahim it has set up this story is probably one of the most insane stories that that exist. And I use the word because it is it is borderline insane story to to even hear. Because to be told at any point in your life. to slaughter your own child is not something that the human mind is capable of comprehending or even accepting. Ibrahim it Saddam. I don't say he prided himself. But if anybody has said I'm carrying himself in light, someone extremely logical. Someone who performed the best performing critical thinking all throughout his life. All about
Ibrahim in the Quran is how Ibrahim argued with people from the age of 17 Logically, rationally about what they were doing, and ask them questions. Tell me again. Why is it that we're speaking to the stars?
Why? It doesn't seem that they are constant? It seems to me that they're variables, they seem to change a lot. They don't seem to have any. There's no messaging from them. I don't see why we do this. Why not? The sun went off the moon. None of this makes any sense. Why are we is worshiping something that you literally I saw you literally sculpt with your own hands? Why me worship me the piece of rock that you made? How is this how is this divine? And why am I wasting time doing this? So he'd have these arguments. And even when Allah told him I resurrect you, he told me, he told them, how do you do it? How do you I totally accept I'm gonna worship you, but how would you
resurrect the dead? How does that work? Once I'm dead? Obviously, he's basing it on the amount of science that he had at the time. So how do you do it? It's not that he asked him what I'm talking Do you not believe? Of course, I believe but how I can't I can't imagine how so Allah gave them to you here, take it slaughter a couple of patients, put them on mountains stand by and I'll show you. So we did. That's how he was. And then he was told to slaughter his son.
Where's the logic of that?
Where's the rationale and slaughtering his own son, its own son, his eldest son, after he'd achieved 15 years of age, he was a really good kid. He was capable. He was obedient. He was intelligent. He loved Allah subhanaw taala. He did everything right. And he told them to slaughter his son.
Why? How could that be acceptable? Where's the wisdom in that? Where is the where's the there's nothing, there is no wisdom in it. There is no his vessel point. That's why it didn't go through. But this is the point you have to learn that he never told you the power to do anything. They didn't have wisdom minutes. He never did. And if he did, he still would have to do it. If he commanded you to do something to do it, whether you see the wisdom or you don't doesn't make a difference. You still do it. He never told you to do something that was not beneficial for you. He never did. He could have but he didn't. And had he done it you would have still had to perform. Because Allah
subhanaw taala commands and we all obey, but he didn't supine and whatnot. And he gave Ibrahim this test. Yes. Your logical and rational and that's exactly what I need you I need you to be a critical thinker. But when I tell you to do something, you will listen because you are a Muslim. And Muslims need to submit, meaning you give up your will for his will Subhan Allah Tada, whatever he asked for, that's what's going to happen. He told him to start his son
and this very difficult story to comprehend. So he said, Yes. And his son said, Yes. And he and his wife and his son, the walk towards
the Manhattan. Think I have this picture. I think the picture is somewhere here.
Sorry. Well, we'll go for a shot in a second.
I think I should have it here somewhere.
Anyway, the metadata is somewhere over here.
Right after where the genital warts are, so they're walking towards them on how to the place where they're going to slaughter and every time as they walk, the chiffon will come up three times once to him, wants to his wife wants to his son to try and tell them what are you doing? Do you even
realize where you're going. But they went anyways. And they and they.
And they basically stoned him away. Because they're like, no, no, don't bring us this. He said to do it, we're going to do it. Yes, we understand. We're not we're not going to go there. He said, do it, we will do it. That's what He commanded, we're not going to ask questions because he commanded was clear. And Allah Subhan Good afternoon, Hakim is the most wise of all rulers, he told us to do it, we do it. So when you go in front of a mirage, the symbolism there is very meaningful as well for you as a person. So on end with that, and inshallah that was beneficial, we do have our Arafa
event, where I will go through the full sermon, and I'll make it into a workshop as well meaning if you're here, you'll get the chance to maybe discuss a little bit of aspects of the of the federal sermons share it and I'll explain it to you so we'll start 730 So if you're interested in kind of bringing your kids and coming and participating, please do so on Tuesday and we have a slot afterwards. And afterwards we have a Kahoot the Kahoot is based on all the Hello thought about that I gave last year they're made into a playlist I put on Facebook and the link is already shared within a within the WhatsApp or within the communication.
