Welcome to the program, Islam insight, a very special series essentially dedicated for a new Muslim brothers and sisters, how do we commit ourselves to gain knowledge regarding Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him would like to know is he just compulsory for him? Somebody told me that a Muslim is not allowed to have relationship with a non Muslim knowledge revives the spirit of Islam.
The benefits of performing hedge and how does it impact us?
You see, the benefits of Hajj and impact of Hajj upon us is immense. The benefit of Hajj as we know, the greatest benefits benefit as Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him mentioned is the price the reward of Hajj is nothing but an agenda. That's the greatest benefit. The other benefit is that the one who performs Hajj with absolutely sincerity. Yeah. And then he does not get involved into any evil, he will return back as a newborn. That's another benefit. Also, you have at every level, different kinds of impact that it leaves upon the Muslim who perform hajj, for example, a spiritual impact, spiritually, you are so close to Allah subhanaw taala because you would be performing all
the things what Allah commands you to do. So you will be actually in reality submitting a lust pantalla sincerely, you will be praying, you will be doing Vicar you will be doing the acts of the Hajj, you would be doing the reminder of Allah subhanaw taala you would be reading the Quran, you will be doing all the things which are pleased by Allah subhanaw taala. So spiritually, you are impacted a lot. And you get closer to Allah subhanaw taala. As a result of this spiritual impact, you will have a physical impact or physical impact is that when you struggle, when you strive and you sacrifice all these things, you will realize that for the sake of Allah, I want to invest my
body and soul, my heart and mind, you invest. And that's a cycle, that that's a physical impact that you get, actually, when you perform Hajj. And imagine a person who was not hard, you did not perform hajj, and then he performs Hajj after some time you see a post Hajj impact upon him, you will realize that this guy is not the same guy, he has changed, you know, at least for some time, he will behave reflect actual teachings of Islam. That's the physical impact that the person gets upon him after performing hajj psychological impact. You see, in this world, most of the people, they have this racist feeling, psychologically, they don't take you equal to them. They think either wealth is
a barrier, either color is a barrier, or race is a barrier barrier, or nationality is a barrier. All these barriers, psychologically, will be broken utterly. During the time of hatch, psychologically, you will not make any distinction between a person who comes from Europe or Africa between us or you know, any part of the world, you would take them as your brothers and sisters. And that's the impact that you get on psychology, that all are equal in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala and anyone who would like to be more superior
to the other, that he has to be more God conscious, he has to make sure that he does things which are pleased by Allah subhanaw taala more and more in order to grade him higher in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala. So you have this psychological impact, you have this emotional impact. You see, you said you get so attached to Allah subhanaw taala that your heart would not allow you to depart from that place. It is so attractive and test emotionally you get so overwhelmed that you do not want to depart. You do not want to leave that blessed place. So emotional impact would leave upon you. After performing hajj, you would have these kinds of impacts and benefits when you prefer
hunch and hygine bada which anybody who has the ability to do must do it of their answers your question this brother
who are the people required to offer hedge and what is the punishment upon neglecting right, the
eligible eligibility for performing hajj and the negative or the punishments that a person will have if he neglects the duty of Hajj. First of all, let's talk about the eligibility factor. Allah subhanaw taala he says in the Quran, Allah Allah Allah
Almighty Manas Tata, this phrase man is Tata la semilla. If you have the ability
to perform must perform Hajj. So the ability is of two types, ability that you should be healthy, you should be healthy enough to perform hajj, and you should be financially able to do so these are the two main things that you need to have in mind in order to be eligible, apart from being Muslim, apart from being free, apart from being mature, apart from being all these things. These are the two main factors that you need to make. And keep in mind as an eligibility factor for performing hajj. So a person who has good health and who has enough wealth, financially is able to he must perform Hajj as soon as possible at the earliest, without any excuse at least once in a lifetime.
That's the eligibility factor. And this has to be redefined in our minds, that sometimes we are healthy for everything but not so much. You see some people they are, you know, they work a lot they do every kind of struggle they strive and sacrifice everything. But then when it comes to how much they try to give an excuse and this excuse will not stand forth in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala when you stand before Allah,
similarly, financially, as soon as you have some will, when you think that you will be able to survive in sha Allah, you must perform Hajj. So these are the two main things apart from being Muslim apart from being mature, apart from being the other criterias these are the two main eligibility factors that you need to keep in mind inshallah.
Your brothers and sisters, we mentioned the fifth pillar of Hajj
we have mentioned the fifth pillar of Islam, and that is Hajj. We've discussed how important it is for us who is able to perform and how beautiful this Alibaba is, what benefits that it brings to us. What impact that it leaves upon the mankind who performs Hajj, we ask Allah subhana wa tada to grant this opportunity to every single Muslim insha Allah, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to help us to fulfill the duty that we owe to Allah subhanho wa Taala I would like to end the session with an ayah with which I began from Surah Allah Iran surah number three or number 97 in which Allah subhanaw taala says, Well Allah He says
