What is Hajj?
But a reenactment of the life of Ibrahim and his family who had raised the bar so high
when it came to being a Muslim, I submitted to Allah
Who had freed the hearts from everyone and everything
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would say about this before I let my Shahidi come visit the sites of Hajj for in a coma Isla everything mean Airbnb calm Ibrahim, because you are following the heritage of your father Ibrahim, you're upon the heritage of Ibrahim.
Think about how true the statement is. Think about hajus running between the two amounts of Safa and Marwa seven times as she was searching in desperation for any sign of life for her hungry child.
Abdullah even though I best comments on this by saying further Lucas, are you Nursey but he now Houma. This is why the Pilgrims do this. Between the two mounts. They're following the footsteps of Hajah number two, think about Ibrahim stoning of Shavon throwing the pelts at the devil when the devil came to try to dissuade him from carrying out the Command of Allah and His Son, Ismail Abdullah him know how does he comments on this? And he said, a shaytan who told you moon? Well Mila to awaken Ebrahim Tabea who,
during your head, you are also pelting the devil, the symbol of the devil, and you are following the way you have your father Ibrahim Allahu Akbar, reenactment of their life
and then thinking about Ibrahim's intention to slaughter his son through the command of Allah. That, of course never happened. In the end, she had the Rama the Saudi, he said about the sacrificial animal that is given during Hajj, who worked through that will will highly sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. This is following the steps of Ibrahim when his son was ransomed from being slaughtered. So notice with me here, how the footsteps of Abraham's family have now become an act of worship, which the intellectuals of the world and the philosophers and the scientists and the Nobel Prize winners, they're all obligated to emulate? Should they wish to enter Jannah SubhanAllah. So truly visit the
sites because you are following the heritage of your father right.
Now this is also the heritage that would be later imitated by prophets, Musa and Yunus. Imagine Abdullah Havilah does he said that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam once passed through a valley known as as rock. He said, Are you working harder which values this? They said this is the value of Allah's rock?
He said, Can you Musa alayhis salam? Have you told me nothing yet you Allah Who do our own Illa Allah He was telling me, he said it's as if I can see Musa Moses coming down from this mountain track, as he calls loudly upon Allah saying, Lubbock Allahumma the big O Akbar, was visited by Musa
then the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam arrived at the mounting track of how SHA amounting track called hub Shah, he said, au Sunni, yet in hada Which mountain track is this? They said this is the mounting track of Harsha. He said on the envelope. LRU sabini Mata Alana cotton Hamra shahada he said it's as if I am seeing unis riding a well built red camo wearing a cloak of wool around himself. I like he took that to mean sort of HIPAA Munakata. He holds well who are you will be and the reign of his camera is made out of fibers of date public he saw the details, as he calls upon Allah saying that make Allah who might have been so the site was visited by UNICEF and he set up
Furthermore, when Prophet Jesus Hasani, he said, returns towards the end of time, he will make Hajj or Umrah or both the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, well, Lady in fcbd Now you will learn Abu Maria Marie Fangio ha ha Jin, Omar Itami Ron, I will use a ninja whom I swear by Allah who possesses my life. The son of Mary, meaning Jesus will make Tobia meaning the required declaration for pilgrimage he will make Tobia for Hajj or for Amara or for both in the valley of Aroha.
Now we can ask the question why Ibrahim of all people?
Why was it that his legacy has been internalized in the form of a pillar of Islam the pillar of Hajj See, listing the wholesome traits of Ibrahim one after the other is of course impossible, but there is one word that appears time and time again in his biography, and that word is Islam submission. He was a true submitted to Allah
I'm not referring to the Islam that separates between belief and disbelief. I refer to the Islam which is in reference to one's absolute surrendering to Allah, whereby you almost literally fail to see your reflection in the mirror. Because you just want to be how Allah wants you to be.
Allah praised Ibrahim for being that person, while they're coding stuff COVID Dunya Allah said, we're in the whole field Kira de la mina Salah hain. We had chosen him in this world, and indeed in the Hereafter, he will be among the righteous. Listen now to the description in the verse after if Allah Allahu Allah boo hoo, slim color Aslam, Toliara behind I mean, when His lord said to him, asleep, submit surrender. And Ibrahim instantly said I have submitted to the lord of neurons. This was the defining feature of Ibrahim and this is why he is an example for our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam according to the Quran, an example for our owner as well. Ibrahim was
commanded to emigrate. He submitted he was commanded to leave his family all by themselves in the desert he submitted, he was commanded to slaughter his son, he submitted, commanded to build the kava to circumcise himself at the age of 80 Every time he submitted, so the path to greatness and nearness to Allah is clear, absolute submission to Allah. Without hesitation or second thought or delay, the companions of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they said something beautiful Mahana Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam an American Candela Anna Anna Fei Sofia, what our ayatullah he was truly and founded. He said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
prohibited us from certain things that used to benefit us. However, obeying Allah and His Messenger is of greater benefit to us.
Had gentle hija they teach us to be lucky but I hear
so that when we're told that such and such financial dealing is haram or this is how we should or shouldn't dress or this environment is displeasing to Allah or Salah is not to be delayed, or whatever a painful decree comes to you in your life from your Lord. I will take a page from Ibrahim his book. We also submit and we recall and repeat his words. A slum to your hobby lobby. I have submitted to the Lord of the Worlds
