There are things to ponder during Hutch and this is what we are going to discuss in this episode. Thinks to ponder during Hutch,

00:02:14--> 00:02:18

our journey of Hajj would become merely

00:02:19--> 00:02:19

a

00:02:21--> 00:02:53

ritualistic journey, if we do not ponder over the things, derived the lessons from it. And if we don't learn it, don't practice it. It would merely become the ritualistic journey and which is not the goal of Hajj My dear brothers and sisters. When you go for Hajj, the pilgrimage, a journey of lifetime. You need to make sure that there are things

00:02:55--> 00:03:31

when you perform hajj, you need to ponder on them. There are things that when you ponder, it will boost your regimen. It will remind you, it will put you to action. It will make you obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala and it will it will help you to elevate your personality and it will help you to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So what are those things that we need to ponder during Hajj number one,

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

the Kaaba itself.

00:03:34--> 00:03:36

You have to look

00:03:38--> 00:03:52

this point in a different angle, just apart from doing you know worship, and doing tawaf and the rest in Kaaba, just stay for a moment and reflect upon the Kaaba

00:03:53--> 00:04:05

that this is the first house of Allah built for his worship. This is the house which is always blessed. This is the house my dear brothers and sisters.

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

where Allah subhanaw taala showers His mercy. This is the house which is absolutely pure. This is the house. I'll carrabba

00:04:19--> 00:04:41

My dear brothers and sisters, which is free from impurity which is free from sherek which is free from wrong things. You see when you go to perform Hajj ponder ponder over acaba itself and you will see the purity that Allah subhanaw taala has told for you.

00:04:43--> 00:04:48

When you see carrabba the people around him for the world

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

and the people, some people they're praying, some people they are reading or some people reflecting some

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

people making some people seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala I mean, this is totally a very impactful lesson for us. So first and foremost things to ponder My dear brothers and sisters that you need to reflect upon, you need to think and ponder over is an carrabba itself.

00:05:25--> 00:05:37

The second thing that you need to ponder over is Hijri esmod was it which is attached to Aqaba? Hijri password, you need to remember this Mario Brothers and sisters,

00:05:38--> 00:06:04

you need to understand the the eagerness, the excitement, the interest and the enthusiasm that the Muslims have in order to kiss and touch it. Why is it so? what is so important about it? You see, the most important for a Muslim is to follow the way of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam. And

00:06:05--> 00:06:20

Amara, the Allahu taala and whose statement is notable in this regard, he said, I know I know for a fact that this stone you hydrate password cannot harm or benefit me.

00:06:21--> 00:06:53

I seek no benefit no harm from the stone, but I do so, because I have seen I touch it I kiss it because I have seen my profits doing so, otherwise, there is no point of doing it. So for us it is important that we keep in touch it not with a belief that it will harm or it will it will help us no because it is the profits command and the Sunnah of the Prophet, we need to do so. And we need to understand and ponder over

00:06:55--> 00:07:10

that it was sent from Jenna it's a stone assemble from Jenna muddy brothers and sisters. It was sent pure as wide, but the sense of Adam made it black.

00:07:11--> 00:07:26

You see, these are the things when you ponder, you try to refrain from the disobedience of Allah and you will be eager to do what Allah subhanaw taala is pleased with.

00:07:27--> 00:08:12

So the second thing that you need to ponder during the time of Hajj is headdress. But the third thing to ponder during Hajj My dear brothers and sisters is to laugh. And sorry, the word is circling around the Kaaba circumambulating the seven rounds that a person does that a Muslim does starting from 100 us word and ending there itself for seven rounds. He goes around and he tries to do what you need to stay in, Think over it. Don't just do it and then move No. Don't be in rush. If you really want to get real fruit from it.

00:08:13--> 00:08:15

ponder over it.

00:08:16--> 00:08:28

And understand that there is no act in Islam, which hasn't got a benefit. Every act is meaningful. Every act in Islam is fruitful and every action in hajj

00:08:29--> 00:08:45

has a beautiful lesson in it. So you need to ponder over these lessons. tawaf it helps us understand that the older people they go and circumambulate the Kaaba

00:08:46--> 00:09:08

signifies one thing, there is no God. There is no deity vodi to be worshipped. except Allah subhana wa Tada. All the people are there to celebrate the unity of Allah subhanaw taala to declare, to declare my dear brothers and sisters

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

to declare that there is none

00:09:14--> 00:09:40

who is worthy of worship except Allah to declare that Allah is one and unique in his existence to declare that Allah subhana wa tada is one and unique in his lordship, to declare that Allah subhanho wa Taala is one and unique in his names and attributes to declare that Allah subhanaw taala is one and unique in his divinity and worship

00:09:41--> 00:09:47

and to declare that there is no deity there is no one no power, no authority, no owner,

00:09:49--> 00:09:54

associate with Allah subhanaw taala this

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

comes only when you ponder when you think

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

When you reflect, as I told you, don't do a bother, as a checklist know, every ibadah that you do, you should do it so that Allah will be pleased by you every ibadah that you do, you should have an objective and underlying objective that you should get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala don't do about it as a checklist, okay, I have done several rounds of the work and then I have to go sorry and then have to do this and that No, me

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

meaning

00:10:37--> 00:11:14

to your a bother. So ponder on tawaf and ponder on side. When you ponder on say, My dear brothers and sisters, remember, remember the struggle that harder or did the wife of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, the mother of his Marine, and he said, What struggle that she did. And Allah subhanaw taala love this act of the struggle, so much so that he made it as soon as a way of all the pre all the people to practice till the last day Subhana Allah.

00:11:16--> 00:11:22

This is the lesson that you get when you only ponder, ponder over sorry.

00:11:24--> 00:12:15

When you go the round trip, starting from suffer to Marwa and moreover to suffer, don't just wander around No, apart from making this the fall apart from making Brian the rest. You need to ponder why all these things are happening. There is a background attached to it. I love someone and his act and her act. He made this as a bar as a worship to Allah subhanaw taala. And remember, that these acts are done to get closer to a last panel Tyler. And these acts reminds us about the struggle of the people of the past. The struggle was meaningful, because they knew they knew the reward that they will get from Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:12:16--> 00:12:27

Allah subhanaw taala is never unjust, in the least degree. He will never leave his beloved people. My dear brothers and sisters

00:12:28--> 00:13:23

ponder over to us and sorry. And the last thing that you need to ponder over isms and water isms and what when you drink don't just gulp it up. No. When you drink think that it is the miraculous water. It is the water that came as a help from a loss of data to Hydra Islam. It came as a gift from Allah subhanaw taala. It came as assistance to the provision from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So ponder over this. When you drink drink it with that sense, drink it with that feeling. Drink it with that experience so that you may understand the importance of it. Dear brothers and sisters, I would like to end this episode with an ayah with which I began from Surah Mohammed surah number 47 and 24 in

00:13:23--> 00:13:40

which Allah subhanaw taala says are familiar to the balloon Koran? Do they not ponder over the Quran? Today not read or ambit care? Do they not understand or are Amala Lubin a follower or are their hearts are locked upon?

00:13:41--> 00:13:45

ponder the things during hatch.
