Welcome to the program, Islam insight, in which we are dealing with some of the most prominent significant and relevant questions pertaining to the essentials of Islam. And

00:01:41--> 00:02:00

in this session, inshallah, we will discuss about the fifth pillar of Islam. And that is Hutch, and we have with us three new Muslim brothers who would like to ask questions pertaining to the topic of Hajj, can we have the questions for them? So

00:02:02--> 00:02:06

my first question is, what's the meaning of Hajj and how did it start?

00:02:08--> 00:02:40

The meaning of Hajj is to set out for a place in an Islamic context, it means to set out to the house of Allah subhanaw taala to go for Hajj, to go to the place to the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala in Aqaba in Mecca in Saudi Arabia. Allah subhanho wa Taala he has given this as an obligation upon the Muslims to perform at least once in a lifetime. Now,

00:02:41--> 00:03:07

this again, is one of the greatest ibadah of Allah subhanaw taala one of the pillars of Islam. Hajj is a struggle is an effort that our Muslim makes in order to please Allah subhanho wa Taala This is the meaning of the Hajj, how did it start? It has a very interesting history

00:03:08--> 00:03:35

that when we hear when we read when we study, our Eman gets boosted, because most of the acts most of the things related and associated with Hodge are related with the life of Prophet Ibrahim is b1, the heleen of Allah subhanaw taala the most Beloved of Allah subhanho wa Taala after Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:03:36--> 00:04:18

It all started as a Lost Planet Allah mentions in the Quran in Surah Surah number 22 and number 26 Allah subhanaw taala mentioned the Quran and we have designated to the site of House of Allah subhanaw taala to Ibrahim Ali Salah to purify the house so that people can come and make the wharf they can circumambulate bow down, prostrate and worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and do not associate any partners with him. So it started at the time of Ibrahim Ali Salam and Ibrahim alayhis. Salam was commanded by Allah to build the house of Allah and that is Al Kaba.

00:04:19--> 00:04:43

After building the house, Allah subhanho wa Taala told Ibrahim alayhi salam to call mankind to perform hajj and Ibrahim Ali Salaam. He said yeah, Allah, oh my god, Oh Allah, my voice will not reach them. So las panatela says and this is recorded in the Quran in surah Hodge surah number 22 and number 27

00:04:44--> 00:04:48

and declared and called proclaim to the people

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

to come for Hajj, to come for Hajj. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will raise will convey this voice will transmit this voice

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

To the people, and you will see the people coming on every food on every lean camel from all distant places. And we see today and hamdulillah there are millions of Muslims who come from different backgrounds. What is the history of this? It was the goal. The first goal of branding Miley Sara Ibrahim Ali Salam made this call and Allah subhanho wa Taala. He invited and called people to the house of Allah to make sure that they don't associate any partners with Allah, and they purify themselves by coming there. So it started all the way there. And later, after his death of Ibrahim alayhis salam after the death of Ibrahim alayhis salam, his mind la salami continued the same

00:05:48--> 00:06:14

message, the same practice without any concoction. However, however, later Later, the people they got deviated and they started to worship idols, they started to get involved in certain illusion and disbelief, so much so that that they used to worship and bow down prostrate, and give sacrifices to the idols.

00:06:16--> 00:06:42

And that's how the story of Hajj started. And until the time when RMB Karim Mohammed Salah Han Solo became, he again, transformed the mankind into the purest and the real belief of the Ibrahim alayhi salam. That's how the story or the history of Hajj began. Hope that answers your question.
