While the terminal is sunny, yes. Who? golly gee viewers Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh meaning with the peace, mercy and blessings of Allah Almighty, we upon all of you. Welcome once again to our program, why Hajj?
In the last episode, we have mentioned What is the meaning of Hajj and we have also dealt the question of the people of other faiths. Why do Muslims perform hajj, what are the benefits, the fruits and the impact that they have? After doing Hajj? In this episode, we'll throw some light on the aspect of the history of Hutch how it all began. You see, anything in Islam fundamentally, is for the benefit of the people. Nothing Islam, nothing in Islam that you will see which will not benefit us fundamentally, Hajj is again certain a bada that we owe to Allah subhanho wa Taala that brings lot of benefits and every act of worship of Allah subhanaw taala it has a background. It has
a reason. It has a history. The history of Hajj It began in the life and time of Ibrahim alayhis salam, Allah subhanho wa Taala. He mentions about the history of Hutch in a chapter in a sutra which is dedicated by the name sutra to the Hajj. Surah number 22. Allah Almighty says In surah tallahatchie surah number 22 number 26 and 27
Allah subhanho wa Taala he says that we have designated, we have designated we have designated Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam
to set a place
the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala saying, do not associate any partners with me and purify the house by inviting people to do tawaf, to do circumambulation and to pray to bow down and to prostrate.
Allah subhanaw taala mentions
this command to Ibrahim alayhis salam and Ibrahim Ali salam, he started to build the Kaaba. He, along with his son is Milo Ali Salaam, the two righteous prophets and the messengers. They started this house of Allah, they built this house, which is the first house for the worship of Allah subhanaw taala. It started at that time.
And when he built the house of Allah subhanaw taala acaba,
Allah subhanho wa Taala said,
raise the call, or Ibrahim proclaim to the mankind to perform Hajj. Ibrahim alayhi salam, he said, Oh Allah, oh my lord, my voice will not reach them. Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, Allah says that you raise your voice, and I will convey this to them.
And you will see people coming on their foot on every lean camel from deep and distant mountain. And we see Subhan Allah today, the the impact of this command, the call of Ibrahim alayhis salam, the people from different parts of the world, they come by different means to celebrate the unity of Allah subhanaw taala. This was the call of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam that he raised. What is the lesson that we learn
when we do something good. When we plan and intend to do something good, we should do our part. We need to play our role and rest Allah subhanaw taala will take care. This is an important lesson My dear brothers and sisters that we learn in the life of Ibrahim Ali
Salaam that he
raised this call, and Allah subhana wa Tada. He invited, he invited and called the people from different parts of the world.
After making that call, Ibrahim alayhis salam, he used to perform Hajj every single year. And later, after his, he passed away, his son is my alayhis salam, he continued this righteous practice, but with the time gap with the time gap
garba it lost its essential purpose and purity, because the people got indulged in idolatry
in worshipping the idols, the Kaaba,
that was righteous, that was pure and blessed, the people,
the people, they spoiled and they misunderstood or they deliberately got deviated, and got indulged and involved in the idol worship, they used to keep, they used to keep idols, they used to keep idols and worship them.
And Subhan Allah, they used to say the same reason, as you and me if we interact to even an intellectual person,
to an intellectual person, if you interact and you say, Why do you worship these idols? They will say we don't worship them, but we, we we take them as our intercessors. We worship them in terms of they mean that they may take us closer to Allah subhanaw taala. And this was the same reason that the mystics of Mecca that the pagans of Mecca, they used to give analyst panel dimensions into the Zoomer surah number 39. Number three,
when it was asked to them, why do you worship them? They say we should worship them, so that they may take us closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. My dear brothers and sisters, in fact, they used to circumambulate that ignorant behavior was such a high level that they used to circumambulate
do tawaf around the Kaaba, absolutely naked, absolutely naked. And they had this reason, this reasoning that we would like to offer ourselves as we were born.
The ignorance word was at high peak, it was so viewed and absurd and obscene, that these two saying, dream, got involved in idolatry, in fornication, and adultery. The Kaaba, the house of Allah subhanaw taala was contaminated with this disbelief with this wrong worshipping. And these people, they used to do all of these acts during the time of Hajj
and they used to make this Tobia, not the same what we do in the current time, they used to say, we associate no partner with you, except the one whom you have permitted. You are his master and the master of what he possesses. This was the Tobia at that time, they used to do direct ship with Allah subhanaw taala. The you used to do direct association with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Over a period of time, we knew that Ibrahim alayhis salam he prayed and that is recorded in the Quran in surah baqarah surah number two or number one 129 Allah subhanaw taala he recorded this prayer of Ibrahim al Islam who did long long back, said oh loss and among them, the messenger who can teach them who
can sanctify and purify them so that they understand the real purpose of Hajj, the real blessing of al Qaeda, the purity of Kava
and that was in reference to our Nabil Karim beloved Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. When he came, he revived the son of Ibrahim alayhi salam, he brought back the same message.
the purity of tawheed of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He invited people
and asked them not to associate any partners with a las panatela he invited them to the same and original an actual and accurate religion of Ibrahim alayhis salam, he invited them and his struggle of this 23 years continuous and constant struggle.
lost when he lost his Sahaba, his companion, his beloved companions, their lives, their properties, their families were sacrificed. And Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. He brought this essential purpose, what Hajj is meant for what Kaaba is meant for. He brought this beautiful, beautiful way of life that was sent by Ibrahim alayhis salam, my brothers and sisters, he brought this message.
As we know, when we read surah, Hajj surah number 22 is number 36 and 37. The sacrifice that they used to do
was again very different,
impure, but the sacrifice that Prophet salallahu alayhi salam again taught us as a part of during huch
he taught us to slaughter In the name of Allah subhanaw taala and Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in the Quran in Surah Surah number 22 is number 36 and 37
that the meat doesn't reach to Allah, the blood doesn't reach to Allah. What reaches to Allah is duck wa is God consciousness is the fear of loss penalty.
So in short, my dear brothers and sisters, the Hajj began in the time of Ibrahim alayhis salam, and raised this call was a model of piety, whose model of righteousness, he made that call and the call is continuing.
Allah subhanho wa Taala he puts this as an obligation upon us. Since then,
we would like to end this episode
with the prayer that may Allah Subhana Allah help us to visit the house of Allah with purity of intention,
and action as was followed by Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Wakanda Juana hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen
surely can play.
he can play.
One now better. Let go and
