So this session is going to be about hope everybody's doing well.

00:01:38--> 00:01:45

And, as usual, we always like to do the height housekeeping items, just where where's everybody joining from? Or is everybody joining from?

00:01:46--> 00:01:49

We got a beautiful global community here of course.

00:01:50--> 00:01:52

So the first thing

00:01:53--> 00:02:18

that we'll be doing in Charlotte as we'll be talking about, Omar and the reason why is specifically because I have a shout out to everybody in Nigeria how far now? Alas, man, I am. I am anointed to be from a kind of state in Nigeria. So if I'm not from a disease state in Sudan,

00:02:19--> 00:02:21

then I'm from kind of state in Nigeria.

00:02:23--> 00:03:03

Hey, welcome Allah. So, the Welcome to Rochester. Welcome everybody. Um, they're in LA. So we'll be talking about umbrella because we have our umbrella group Pachala that's, that's heading out. And this This shirt is Nigerian by the way just so you know, once I got my my style in Nigeria, hello. So that's all I've been wearing over here. But we have an envelope that's, that's traveling a child outside on March 1 to march 9. With blessings voyage. We're gonna have some lady just posted in the in the chat blesses. wage.com welcome to everybody from all over I see the Somali flag,

00:03:05--> 00:03:08

Algeria and also hidden Paris and also Hello and welcome.

00:03:10--> 00:03:29

So, a couple of things. We'll just be talking about Amara and so what I'd like is actually I want you to give me a thumbs up if you've never been to me before. If you've never been to Morocco for everybody who's on the live. If you've never been to Amarillo before giving me a thumbs up. Allah Subhana Allah says a Tim would help Joe I'm gonna tell you that.

00:03:30--> 00:03:34

Allah says Complete the Hajj and Umrah for ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada for a while.

00:03:36--> 00:04:19

And I want you to appreciate there is a gap a lot of thumbs up coming May Allah subhana data grant you all the ability to complete Umrah and to visit Allah Subhana Allah at his house, it's actually a great blessing. It's a great blessing. And sometimes we're not able to go for a lot of reasons. Because of obviously finances and because of opportunity. And because of school and because of scheduling because of work and because of family, and a lot of different types of things. And that's absolutely true. But I want you to know that sometimes we don't go simply because we've never thought of it before. We've never taken the the opportunity to plan to try to go and I know that to

00:04:19--> 00:04:22

be true for hedge for sure, but also for umbra.

00:04:23--> 00:04:51

There are so many people who said you know what, I just made the intention. And Allah subhanaw taala made it happen. And so I would say if you've never gone before and even if you have gone before, you know one of my my recent memories. Last year, we took a group. And I remember a couple of weeks before I had a friend of mine who grew up having been very involved. Thank you Lola for pinning it. Here we go. Let me pin this comment.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

I had a friend of mine who had never never been to a model before even though he grew up in the message

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

isn't all of that. And so he was debating with me before we actually went, why people go every year. And he was saying to me, you know why I feel like people should they don't need to go every year maybe instead if they have that type of money, Allah subhanaw taala gave them that type of money. Maybe they should go one year. Sure. And they should sponsor people the next year, and they should sponsor people the year after that and then respond to people that really after that, you don't need to go all the time. Don't be greedy. Don't be selfish. And so I remember him saying all of that and I'm like, Yeah, bro, okay, you obviously sound like you've never been. And then when we got there,

00:05:36--> 00:05:46

we landed in we went to Medina, and we started walking through the courtyard of MSG, the Nepalese day one, our number one, he just walked into the courtyard of investors and nobody.

00:05:47--> 00:06:30

He just walks into the courtyard of admission and he looks at me, he goes, I gotta come back next year, five minutes into smelling the center of Medina, walking into the mysteries of the progress of the lightest, and he looks back at me, he goes, I need to go back next year. And I'm like, Absolutely, you need to go back next year, at the end of the day. Hajin Amara are things that we do for ourselves. It is a journey that we take it is a rejuvenation, it is a recommitment, it is a reconnection. It is. It is a beautiful experience that we ourselves are in need of visiting our last panel at dad's house. So I mentioned a few things in sha Allah to Allah. And then I want to open up

00:06:30--> 00:07:09

the floor for a lot of questions. Because with Omura people have a lot of questions. But our trip is in Charlotte out of March 1 to march 9, if you're in the US, we are flying out of JFK and actually the early bird ends tomorrow. So you can check out the website listed voyage.com make a decision. The way that it goes is like this, it's very simple, is if you're in the US, you could fly out of JFK if you want to fly out of JFK with also you know, there are a lot of packages, you can fly out from wherever you want, but we have a group leaving from JFK. And then you make a deposit. You make the deposit you would make the deposit today or tomorrow last item to secure your seat. It's a it's

00:07:09--> 00:07:52

just a fraction of the price of the actual trip. I think it's $500 and then from there you prepare for the journey in Charlotte data. And then you you head out in Charlotte data in a couple of days with us obviously paying the complete amount and the itinerary is Medina Oh, first and we'll talk about those details and all of that in the q&a. But let me get to some of the virtues of Hajj and Umrah and also how to prepare for hygiene or how to prepare for Hajj and Umrah and by Hydra number I mean, because I'm not talking about hydrate now, but it just flows off the tongue. Okay, so first, what are some of the virtues? I want you to tell me? What are some of the virtues of ombre right

00:07:52--> 00:07:56

from the get go? What do you know as far as being a virtue of Mr. What are some of the virtues of Omar?

00:07:58--> 00:07:59

Number one.

00:08:00--> 00:08:42

When people think about Ankara, a lot of times they think about the cost it's in the 1000s of dollars no matter where you're going from right unless you're coming from somewhere in Serbia itself. It's going to cost you 1000s of dollars and so you're looking at your bank account and you're looking at whether you're able to go and noticeable loss of the lights and I'm says in a hadith that's authentic reported, he says I deem would have showed an ombre he says consistently do I generally will go back and forth doing hydrogen Amara why because they repel a *er with renewable energy and in fact close the loop they repel poverty and sins like fire repels like fire

00:08:42--> 00:08:55

repels impurities in metal, impurities in metal impurities and steel. So just like a blacksmith uses fire to repel impurities from steel,

00:08:57--> 00:08:59

hajj and umrah both of them.

00:09:00--> 00:09:48

You go and it removes poverty from you. Hajj does and I'm going to do the opposite of making you broke. They actually repel poverty from you. And so that's an important thing to keep in mind. And all you have to do is go and talk to somebody who went to Anambra and ask them who here became broke, became poor, because they went on no guarantee they came back and they found a promotion, they found a job, they found a sustenance they found risks that came to them in many different ways, not just with regards to money, but the amount of people who got married after the amount of people who had children after. Like it's I mean, these stories are well known. And all you have to do is to

00:09:48--> 00:09:49

ask anybody who's gone.

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

There's a beautiful, a beautiful brother, who his father made do to have him make

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

You're asked to have them at the Kaaba

00:10:04--> 00:10:40

and this brother until today he says, My father anytime I do something good, he says, My dad says, You're the the guy but of course you're going to do that. Like, of course you did good. Like that's his way of phrasing it. He says, Enter the Al haram. He says, You are the drought that I made it up. How about I have a share of my who after a long period of not having children, he went and he did Amara and he asked Allah Subhana Allah to be granted two sons, one who had served the Quran and one who has served us enough. And Allah Subhana Allah granted him two sons when he came back.

00:10:42--> 00:10:51

Two sons, this is from his mouth to my ear. So the point here is that whatever poverty a person is feeling,

00:10:53--> 00:11:04

had their own raw repellents. Okay, so that's number one. What other virtues do we have? What other virtues do we have, as everybody in the world tries to message me right now?

00:11:06--> 00:11:10

And how to remember I gotta turn off my notifications. Hold on, I'm sorry, but I actually don't know how to do that.

00:11:12--> 00:11:50

Okay, so number two, is that the Hadji and the monatomic both of them together, they are in the protection of Allah subhana Dawn and the custodianship of Allah subhanaw taala until they return back, rasool Allah, Allah Allah there, send them says Maha Raja had Jen fermata cutterbar Allahu Allah who had you know, Yeoman PMO. And Hubbard I want to call them I think the right format, it's about lower level hmm, definitely laying on the dam. So Rasulullah sallallahu dissonances, whoever goes out in Hajj and then passes away, ALLAH SubhanA data right within the reward of Hajj until the day of judgment, and whoever goes out in Omaha and passes away, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah writes,

00:11:50--> 00:11:53

For them, the reward of Umbra until the day of judgment.

00:11:54--> 00:12:35

You know, a couple of years ago, we heard of a brother who passed away and I have a whole lot to add, in ombre, ombre, he had arrived in the sacred lands for the purpose of umbra. And so we hope that Allah Subhana Allah writes for him, the reward of Umrah every single day until the Day of Judgment. These are incredible rewards from Allah. Allah Subhana Allah Allah is the One who is in you are in his care while you are on that journey. Number three, it it it for it forgives what is between of the two, sort of sort of loss of a lot s&m says, I dominated America falling and I've been on hold, I mean, a little ball coppia it says that one camera to another. And that's why that's

00:12:35--> 00:12:50

another great reason why a person should go to umbra, again, is because number of forgives what ever since we're committed between those two cameras, so I made a move in 2018. I made around 29. To innovate on when I turned 20 I don't want to 20 to 21 I don't want to 2022 I don't want to 2024 however,

00:12:52--> 00:12:56

those things become forgiven in between those, those two ammos.

00:12:57--> 00:12:58

Number four

00:13:01--> 00:13:18

is that something beautiful? We don't look for difficulty in Oman. You don't go looking for a hard umbra. You don't go looking for like the the worst package that you can get so that you can suffer during the umbra. But undoubtedly, even if you go with a great comfortable package,

00:13:19--> 00:14:03

you still may encounter encounter some hardship, because travel always includes hardship. It just, it just comes with the territory, flights get delayed, flights get canceled. Or hotels don't end up being what you were looking for, or this room has an issue or that room and jetlag and, and food and, and sickness and all of these types of things. They come with travel, we all know they come with travel, and sort of sort of loss of Allah instead of them. He says in the terminal every other Slavic. So he says you have from reward in accordance to your difficulty that you experience, meaning that a person if they go through difficulty, their reward goes up. If their difficulty goes

00:14:03--> 00:14:42

up, their reward goes up. It goes like that. And so if I encounter reward and encounter difficulty, again, I don't create difficulty that's not part of our deed. It is not part of our deen that a person goes looking for difficulty or trying to make things difficult. The process of Elijah syndrome as he says he would never be, he would never be presented with two paths, except that he chose the easier one that's the Sunnah of the Prophet is the lightest and not look for friction and not look for hardship and not look for difficulty. Life is difficult enough on its own without making things more difficult for yourself. However, if that difficulty does present itself, and you

00:14:42--> 00:14:57

endure, then you are rewarded more. Again, we don't look for difficulty. But if difficulty comes, we endure it seeking Allah subhanho data is reward and we are told that the more difficult it becomes, the more rewarding it becomes as well.

00:14:58--> 00:15:00

It is incredible.

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

For a person to experience at home

00:15:04--> 00:15:07

when I went I was in a state of serenity all had worries behind me

00:15:09--> 00:15:11

because I was going to the headquarters

00:15:13--> 00:15:20

you know, let me let me find you something I want to find you guys a passage that I love very much okay.

00:15:22--> 00:15:23

So

00:15:24--> 00:15:25

let me see here

00:15:28--> 00:15:39

two quick verses okay I'm gonna give you the verse numbers. I'm gonna give you the verse numbers. Where is it? No, that's not it sorta Nisa, Allah Subhana Allah Allah says

00:15:42--> 00:15:49

okay, okay, so Denisov, verse five Solothurn is that verse five? You just inspired this comment.

00:15:50--> 00:16:33

Allah says, wala to suffer and while Allah says do not give the weak minded, you're mad your wealth, okay? I let a job Allahu Allah come Kiama that ALLAH SubhanA Medina has made for you to men, okay? This is very powerful, incredibly powerful, and incredibly powerful. Allah says, Do not give the poor, not the poor stuff of luck, do not give the the the weak sufa The foolish, do not give them your wealth, which Allah Subhana Allah data has made for you to them and it has made for you beyond the means to stand right. And so ALLAH SubhanA data has made wealth, what allows for you to stand up

00:16:34--> 00:16:38

Allah has made wealth, what allows for you to stand up

00:16:39--> 00:16:51

and while a cool little gal, Hola Hola, como Tiama, that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah has made it your ability to stand up a nation that has money gets to stand up.

00:16:53--> 00:17:36

A nation that doesn't have money is humiliated and indebted and invaded and conquered and bullied and colonized and they don't have money. Right? Wealth is what allows for a person to have dignity. A person who has money, that is a person who's able to stand up on their own two feet. They're given that dignity and so Allah subhanaw taala calls wealth that which allows for you to stand on your own two feet piano chairmanship. Soon I heard him one time we were we were going over this verse and he said, I don't know of a verse. That phrase is money more than this verse. Okay, so this is verse number five of chapter number four, sort of a nice, okay. I rarely quote reverse numbers. Okay, so

00:17:36--> 00:17:39

if I'm quoting a verse number, I hope you're at least writing it down.

00:17:40--> 00:17:51

Then, our next verse is salt and Matt ADA, the fifth chapter 97. Salt and Matt ADA, the fifth chapter 97. This is mind blowing. Okay.

00:17:52--> 00:18:04

This is the second place where we see this concept of piano that this is something that allows for you to stand on your own two feet. What was the first the first was wealth right, chapter four, verse five.

00:18:05--> 00:18:22

Allah Subhana Allah Allah says, jab Allahu Kabataan, baited haram pm and in us. Allah says, Allah has made the Kaaba, the Sacred House, pm and leanness standing for the people. This is unbelievable.

00:18:23--> 00:19:09

We go out into this world, and we recognize that wealth is something that allows for us to have dignity and power. And Allah subhanho wa Taala uses this word to also reflect the cab, the cab and the worship of Allah and to heed of Allah subhanaw taala. And you going to the Kaaba and raising your hands and making Tawaf to Allah subhanaw taala his sacred house, that in and of itself, grants you dignity and grants you power, not only does it grant you dignity and grant you power, it grants you safety and security in this life and the next. So if wealth is that which gives you security and power in this life, the Kaaba and the two feet of Allah and the worship of Allah Subhana Allah data

00:19:10--> 00:19:14

is that which gives you security and power in this life and the next.

00:19:15--> 00:19:22

Can I get to take big luck poor? And that's why, you know, I don't know about you guys, but I'm seeing a lot, especially over the past couple of weeks.

00:19:24--> 00:19:59

This this question about should we continue to go to ombre and hedge with everything that's happening in philosophy and is this something that we should continue to support? Should we not go to hedge O'Meara and I was thinking Subhanallah Allah Subhana Allah says that he made the Kabak Dr muddiness and beta haram Allah made it clear Molina's just like we all understand that when it comes to the issue of Philistine money is such an important factor. Money is such an important factor. Allah says that he made an mal piano Allah

00:20:00--> 00:20:40

maidwell something that allows for us to stand on our own two feet. And it is something that in sha Allah to out of the mobilization of money, the correct usage of money, the correct usage of withholding money and boycotting with our money, all of that and sha Allah to Allah will allow for our brothers and sisters and Philistine to be able to stand with dignity, because wealth gives you that ability. But don't forget Allah subhanaw taala also said the same thing about the Kaaba. So if going to Umrah and going to Hajj is one of the strongest tools at our disposal, as an ummah, that I go to Mecca, and I complain to Allah Subhana Allah and I cry to online, 1000s of us go, and millions

00:20:40--> 00:20:43

of us go in Hajj season and we invoke Allah subhanaw taala

00:20:44--> 00:20:53

Why would I cut off this great, great cause of goodness and worship to the Muslim community? Why would I do that?

00:20:58--> 00:21:19

I honestly think that people who make those types of arguments, they're not aware of how important that is as a tool of changing our condition. And if that is truly a tool of changing our condition, which it is, then why would I cut off the ability to make dua to Allah subhana data at his house? Why would I do that?

00:21:23--> 00:21:24

And Allah subhana Dawn was

00:21:28--> 00:22:05

also one of the great advocates of and we'll get into some of the etiquettes inshallah data but something beautiful, is that when you go to umbra, you have to remember always that you're meeting the OMA, some people are meeting the OMA for the first time and you're meeting the entire Ummah, and you're meeting the OMA as they are, you're not meeting the OMA on your home turf, where they're becoming Americanized or they're becoming British, and they're surrounded by that you're meeting them on their home turf. I remember one time I woke up in the home after taking a nap. And it was an ombre. It wasn't how much I was taking a nap in the huddle where I dozed off or something like that

00:22:05--> 00:22:40

I had laid down. And I woke up to two Chinese men having a conversation as they literally sat on my head. It was insane. Like they were as close as close could get for no reason. It wasn't like the message. I mean, the messenger was very packed. But still, I felt like every sense of space that I knew and was familiar with had been invaded. And these two men for absolutely nothing of it as they sat, like pretty much at my head, having a conversation, everything is fine. I don't know what they were talking about. But they seemed incredibly engaged. And when I got up, I wasn't mad.

00:22:41--> 00:23:06

Because I already knew that this is what you're gonna get when you come to Edinburgh. And in fact, I took a selfie with them. And we had a conversation even though we didn't understand each other. But when you when you go and you've experienced the OMA, you have to realize that you know what, I am coming here as a guest of Allah subhanaw taala. And these are all guests of Allah, Allah chose them to be here. And so I am going to be as best as I can.

00:23:08--> 00:23:50

on my best behavior, I'm going to be as best as I can, as accommodating as possible, I am going to be as best as I can, as optimistic as possible, as I am looking and trying to understand what people around me are doing, even if some of it seems very, very strange, even if it seems very, very strange. So what are some of the attributes and we'll end the Java data very, very soon. But before that, I just wanted to remind you for those of you who are interested, we have the blessed voyage Omega group which all that data that's leaving March 1 to march 9, we have land packages from all over the world you can join us from Europe, you can join us from South Africa, you can join us from

00:23:50--> 00:24:27

Asia, you want to come from Australia and all the sudden you want to come from the US of course we have a package that's leaving from JFK, that which is the full package otherwise you can join us with lamb packages from all over inshallah to Allah but we always start with Medina first and the reason why we start with Medina first is because when you go as a group, you hopefully are coming with some people that you know, Amara is always you know, it's always memorable when you bring people with you that you know for sure because then every time you see each other at home, you know in your community, you will remember the ombre that you experienced together creates an incredible

00:24:27--> 00:24:59

bond amongst people who are already friends or family. But then number two, even if you don't and you come alone inshallah to Allah we create amongst the group specifically, we've tried to make sure that we create bonds that will last way beyond the Amara group. And when you come you want to spend a couple of days in Medina first just so that the group can kind of get to know one another. So that when it culminates on day three or day four, with us traveling down to Mecca, taking the very comfortable and beautiful high speed

00:25:00--> 00:25:15

train to mcta that this is a group that knows each other. This is a group that's familiar with each other. When we go and we do the camera together, the bond is already there as opposed to landing in Makkah on day one, and then going straight into the camera. That's been my experience.

00:25:17--> 00:25:27

Okay, so what are some of the important attributes that a person should have and prepare before they head over to camera?

00:25:29--> 00:26:00

A couple of things. Number one, and this is I'm not necessarily going in order but I'll mention four or five things that shall have done that whatever o'clock whatever questions we have in sha Allah, our comments, I'm happy to go over them with your chocolate data. Number one. The first is gratitude to Allah subhana data. The first is gratitude to Allah, that Allah subhanaw taala chose you, you know, Shadow he mentioned that if you know people are

00:26:02--> 00:26:39

or if masajid are the best places on Earth, Messiah are the best places on earth. And they are the most beloved places tool Allah as the prophets of the lighthouse and was told by Djibouti that the most beloved places to Allah are the massages. And these are the massage it that we choose their sites, we choose to build a message on this corner over here. We choose to build a masjid in this area of the city here, we choose to build a message on this, you know, in front of this lake here or this bridge here or this street here or what have you. We're the ones who choose the location. We're the ones who do to the location, and that location that we choose. That structure that we build on

00:26:39--> 00:26:49

that location that we chose becomes the most beloved place to Allah subhanaw taala but what about the masjid that Allah subhanaw taala chose the location of

00:26:50--> 00:27:14

what about Mecca? And what about the one that Allah Subhana Allah commanded Ibrahim alayhis salam to build with ismail and Allah subhana wa Tada called his own house on Black Hills diabetes, but if you know what Aquafina okay sujood Allah Subhana Allah Allah commands Ibrahim and dismayed to purify his house, the one that he called his house.

00:27:16--> 00:27:46

And Allah Subhana Allah, Allah made the hearts of people inclined to that place. Allah Subhana Allah, Allah says, or Ibrahim is that it says Allah mentions in the form of entertainment and is it that we lay him? Allah says, Make the hearts of people fly to Mecca. Let the hearts of people just soar to Mecca just want to be there. You know, and it's amazing. When you go to MCC and you go to Medina. They're not very spiritually.

00:27:48--> 00:28:06

Actually, they're not very physically inviting. If you remove the Haram from Mecca, I doubt that anybody would travel there, it would not be a tourist attraction at all. It's just a bunch of mountains in the desert. That's it. There's no rivers, there's no gardens, there's no there's nothing there. And yet,

00:28:07--> 00:28:36

Allah Subhana Allah Allah made that the sake the site of his sacred house and Allah Subhana Allah Allah knows best. I believe that possibly of the reasons why that is, is so that there is absolutely no distraction. When you go to Mecca, there's no kayaking in Makkah, when you go to Mecca, there's no there's no there's there's nothing to do. Other than that spirit. There's no physical beauty there. It's just spiritual beauty is a completely spiritual experience, but then has a little bit more to do.

00:28:37--> 00:29:01

But still, if you remove messaging away from Medina, I doubt that people will travel to Medina to go do anything as opposed to a coats and postures physically beautiful and Allah subhanaw taala free it from occupation. But of course, I mean, it's still one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to in my life, if not the most beautiful it's completely different. But Mecca, Medina, spiritual beauty, not physical beauty.

00:29:02--> 00:29:03

So

00:29:06--> 00:29:48

it is a place that is bless it. And from the blessedness of this place, you show gratitude to Allah span of data, recognizing that you know what, the fact that you've invited me to this place, and that you allow me to come to your house is an indication of incredible honoring for me, because I know that you don't invite to your house except those whom you love. You don't invite it to your house except that you offer the second is Toba. So after gratitude is so bad that a person repent to Allah subhanaw taala and these great acts of Umrah that you are offering to Allah. You don't want them to be weighted down by since Shackleton thought we he mentioned and he gives the example of an

00:29:48--> 00:29:59

airplane and he says that if an airplane is too heavy, it has to release some cargo for it to be able to fly. And so he says similarly these these acts of worship that you are offering to Allah subhanho data and you are

00:30:00--> 00:30:41

hoping that they ascend to a law. They're way endowed by our sins. They're burdened down by our sins. And so you have to remove the burden and the weight of the sins from these acts of worship that they may assent and so meaning Allah subhanaw taala with Toba and Allah subhanho data says and sort of the Toba verse 117 With up a tab Allah a tab Allahu Allah Nibi Allah has accepted the repentance of the Prophet, when will hygena will on slaughter ledvina Turbo visa It is Allah, Allah says and upon Allah has accepted the repentance of the Prophet, and the more hygienic and the onslaught, who followed him in moments of difficulty, Allah accepted the repentance now, if no pay

00:30:41--> 00:31:22

in comments, and he says, This was after the campaign have to book this was after the campaign is to book and so after these people have went on a military campaign, with all of the difficulty, and remember, the campaign of taboo had so much hardship it was called the army of hardship, all of this sort of content, they went through all of the charity that they gave all of the hardship of the harvest in the summer that they avoided, because the army, it was time for it to go out all of the wealth that they lost. Everything that they went through, what was the end goal that they received the end reward after going through all of that difficulty, Lukka tab Allah Who identity Allah has

00:31:22--> 00:32:03

accepted the repentance of the Prophet, and the mighty Dean and the unsolved and there were three whose matter was delayed for 50 days you know the story of cognitive pneumatic, and when his story ends, with his repentance being accepted him and his two companions, the prophets of Allah hottie who sent them he said, I've shared a bit later Yom in Marathi coming to my wedding that he said, Rejoice with the best day you have ever experienced since your mother gave birth to you. And so we learned then from the province that nobody has said that the best day of a person's life is the moment where Allah Subhana Allah accepts their repentance, if only we could position ourselves, put

00:32:03--> 00:32:25

ourselves in a place where we could repent to Allah subhana died with sincerity and with humility and with true commitment. And ombre is one of the best places for you to do that, that you put yourself in a position to seek a loss of Hannah data's repentance with sincerity. And if you're able to walk out of Omaha, having your repentance accepted, then it's the best day of your life

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

okay.

00:32:51--> 00:33:02

The last one that I mentioned Charlotte that two very quickly is patience. And number five is mindfulness and focus. So

00:33:04--> 00:33:46

shall Hamza should declare him Allah, he used to have a very beautiful example that he would give. Specifically in Hyderabad, it applies to him as well, which is the idea of having a patient's circle we used to call a patient circle. And the patient's circle was a very simple idea. And that is that you, as you go through the sacred rituals, as you go through the pilgrimage, you are going to be tested, every one of us has a limit, we have to draw a circle I have, this is my circle, this is what I'm comfortable. If if something an incident happens that's within my limits, and I'm cool and calm and collected, I will endure, I will persevere I will have patience. But what Allah subhanaw

00:33:46--> 00:34:01

taala does is he doesn't send you something that's within the circle itself, he'll send you something that's outside of the circle. And when he sends you something that's outside of the circle, something that is very difficult to bear, then one of two things is going to happen. Number one is you are going to

00:34:02--> 00:34:21

you are going to break. And that's when people flip out. And that's when people get disrespectful. And that's when people curse. And that's when people, people do all sorts of things, when they're angry, or when they're tired, or when they're disappointed. Or whether insulted or offended. And all of these things may happen. Right? This is this is number one.

00:34:23--> 00:34:59

Or the second thing, and that's what you would hope to happen. And that is it landed outside of your patient circle. Option number one is that you break for option number two is that you grow and your circle expands to include that thing that was outside of it a second ago. And so you show more forbearance than you've shown before, and you show more patients and you've shown before you show more resilience than you showed before. And that person has benefited from the experience of going to Ebola or the experience of going to hatch a person's patients gross

00:35:00--> 00:35:01

So,

00:35:02--> 00:35:41

and again, when you're dealing with the OMA, for me, making the bull off is always a mission. Because I'm just very used to people walking in a particular way. If you're in traffic and everybody's moving in one direction, it doesn't make sense to me at all, that you decide to move counterclockwise against the entire wave of people, just because you want to move back to this door, as opposed to just waiting five minutes and then making another rotation around the Kaaba so that you can exit with the traffic, as opposed to breaking the flow of traffic for everyone. But guess what? Every single person, or every time I've ever met the law, that exact thing has happened.

00:35:44--> 00:35:54

Every time I've met the wife, that exact thing has happened. And so you can let it be a pet peeve that grows and causes you harm, or you can simply absorb it and grow and move with the flow.

00:35:55--> 00:36:15

That's number I think, number four. And then the last thing is, is mindfulness is mindfulness. And it would be horrible that a person goes to a place where they have traveled to come close to Allah subhanaw taala. And they still don't connect with them.

00:36:16--> 00:37:00

When you go to camera, I know people very beautifully, who don't take their phones into the huddle. Just because it doesn't, it's not appropriate that I don't take that I take my phone into Hanuman video, or I take my phone, it's at the heart of Africa. I reconnect when I get back into my room, or people who who don't do that. They keep it with them. But at the very least they leave groups, they leave their family, they leave their family groups, they leave their friends groups, they leave this and they leave that just because I'm for the next seven days, I'm I'm here for about them here for focus. If you need to reach me reach me. The last thing that I personally want is that they go to

00:37:00--> 00:37:38

unlock, and then while they're in umbra, they're still keeping up with everything that's happening outside. This is your time for spiritual reconnection, this is for your time for you to remember those people not in their group chats but for you to remember those people in your app to ALLAH SubhanA data while you're in the to house if you want to remember that remember them in your job. And remember the Elsa will last little via days and it says they do I have a person for their brother in their absence key their key word there in their absence is Mr. Chap. In their absence is up if you make the offer your brother in their absence, it will be remembered. So remembering them

00:37:40--> 00:38:15

with your DUA in those moments, and recognizing that these are very, very fleeting moments, it's just a matter of days, and you never know when you'll be invited back. So being present, and recognizing the gift of being our RA and ALLAH SubhanA data knows best. Now though, the way that we will end here, but the way that we we prepare for Umrah so the blesseth wage group, so we're leaving on March 1, and then it's until March 9 And so we'll have is we'll have a couple of webinars, private webinars for the group inshallah data that are

00:38:16--> 00:38:54

to prepare for Umrah so everything from the fifth of Umbra to even more discussions about preparation, what you need to bring and best practices and all of that type of stuff to make sure that everybody knows what they need to know. And everybody is as prepared as possible, even spiritually even, you know, from a knowledge basis, before you even had to Medina before you even bought the plane. And then so that's three sessions in Charlottetown in February that we're going to have scheduled and then when we get there what makes the unmolded blesseth voyage experience different different is I think the focus on knowledge. What we'll be doing is we'll be studying a

00:38:54--> 00:39:33

book called a sheaf up by other yacht and it's a it's a beautiful book. In fact, it's one of the most celebrated books in history about the Prophet cellulitis and I'll call the Al was a Moroccan slash and the Lucien scholar and Maliki scholar of course, and his book, Shiva Kumar refer to her cooking Mustafa, the healing in knowing the rights of Mustafa, the Chosen One somebody said them in the melodica the Western Africans they used to say if it wasn't for a Shiva then Mustafa wouldn't have been known. So it's a book that covers the rights of the Prophet it covers his Shabbat age some of the characteristics of the prophets that Allah has said I'm the character of the prophets of

00:39:33--> 00:39:34

Elijah is ended up

00:39:35--> 00:39:59

theology about the province of the lightest of them, all of that is covered in that book and we're going to be going over what we can it's actually we're not going to be able to cover the whole thing but we'll have sessions from it inshallah to Allah. During the end it will be the theme of the trip inshallah. So you'll go and you'll be getting to know and studying the province of allied SLM and connecting with him in Medina and in Makkah, and what is more powerful than that, so that's the idea.

00:40:00--> 00:40:00

If

00:40:01--> 00:40:06

and if there are any questions in sha Allah to Allah will take them you can type them in the chat or

00:40:08--> 00:40:10

house like and let us know how else we can do questions

00:40:23--> 00:40:30

project drafter says Do you need a roommate for material solid flooring? My first I'm gonna with you welcome chef and oh Santa's

00:40:31--> 00:40:36

welcome. I don't know who project rapper is but you're welcome to join Sharla be great

00:40:57--> 00:41:31

I already answered that question about going to Morocco, for those who are are asking about the safety of going to Umrah in Charlotte that it's safe to go. Someone's asking about the ethical law aspect of going to umbra, like I mentioned to you, you don't boycott ALLAH SubhanA data and you don't boycott going to ALLAH SubhanA data's house was full of loss of ally they send them the Kaaba was filled with 360 idols, and he himself was expelled from Mecca. Can you imagine that he himself was expelled from Africa. Like there's no injustice that's greater than that.

00:41:32--> 00:41:38

Him and his community are from MK and they're expelled and yet also lost a little lighter said love.

00:41:39--> 00:41:47

He takes the journey. He takes the journey to Mecca. And then Skander would be great to have you man. Welcome welcome.

00:41:50--> 00:41:51

Cinnamon delight says

00:41:53--> 00:42:01

it says it was an honor to meet you in Melbourne. Why it was Siddhartha Gottesman as an honor man. Reading your screen names is hilarious, man.

00:42:03--> 00:42:14

You know, eventually I feel like people when they when they you know people choose their usernames when they're like 14 or 15 years old. I get it. But eventually we got to grow out of our usernames right and go to like our regular names.

00:42:17--> 00:42:57

Should you go to a number if you have to borrow to go and don't have the means to pay yet? Can you make that for the means there? Well, if you don't have the means to repay the No Don't borrow money that you can't pay back. That's not that's a recipe for disaster. But can you borrow money to go for? I'm not sure. So I'm going to borrow the amount from my family or my friend or what have you and I'll pay them back in a certain amount of time and we agree on that time. That's perfectly fine. There's nothing wrong with that people borrow money to do all sorts of things and borrowing money to go do Amara is better than most every reason why people borrow money to go write the worship of

00:42:57--> 00:43:01

Allah subhanho data. But if a person can't pay a person back then no don't borrow money

00:43:08--> 00:43:12

is it permitted to go on camera as a single woman without family so the idea of traveling

00:43:13--> 00:43:32

as a single woman, the province cellulitis and I'm forbade the woman from traveling the journey of a day and night except without a more modern whatever the journey of a day or a night. So the question then becomes, is it how far is that distance for you? Is it the travel of a day and night?

00:43:34--> 00:44:12

Are you somebody who it's a two hour flight away from? Is it somebody who it's 16 hour flight away from so if it's someplace that's close, then shot like that it's more flexible, but if it's placed that's very far then I wouldn't advise for you to do that. Then once you arrive then you're in the company or even if you're traveling then travel with the group and if you travel with the group inshallah Tada you are you know some of the Folk behind even some of those have they allowed for the travel of women if they're in a group like Iceman, I found out the line he sent the waves of the prophets of Allah to send them to Hajj under the company of Abdullah commanded me I'd be back

00:44:13--> 00:44:28

after a minute I'll be back Chris, obviously, I'm gonna have him for I shall but he's not gonna hold on for all of the Mothers of the Believers. But they all went with that group and so the person is able to go in the company of a righteous group, then Charlotte is more flexible as well.

00:44:31--> 00:44:33

Can you wear

00:44:34--> 00:44:59

footsies while running from software to Marwa? I don't know what footsies are, but you can wear footwear. Whatever footwear it's allowed for pilgrim to wear you can wear it while you're in a software model and to be honest, you can even wear it and throw off but I wouldn't encourage for you to wear into off in the actual courts of the Kaaba. Because most people are barefoot and it's very tight space and you don't want to be stepping on people's feet. But if you're on the second

00:45:00--> 00:45:02

flooring, third floor fourth floor human

00:45:03--> 00:45:06

and you are wearing your footwear that's perfectly fine.

00:45:08--> 00:45:11

Do your medical going to visit historical site or just focus on praying all the time?

00:45:13--> 00:45:23

No, I recommend going and seeing the historical sites in Medina and Mecca if you can. And we're going to organize for some of that in the trip going to see of course the Shahadat hood and

00:45:24--> 00:45:25

going to see

00:45:26--> 00:45:48

a number of the massage didn't Medina as well, like well organize that in sha Allah. And I would encourage that, especially if you're going with a group and the reason why is because if you're going with a group, then usually it's not just a matter of just going and seeing but also experiencing the story of those events. So it's, it's encountering the Sierra, in those places as well.

00:45:50--> 00:46:15

Could you guide me about covering a job whatever restrictions while on camera, then my job is to decide decided to attend the woman who's in Omaha, she doesn't wear Nipah but she doesn't she doesn't wear gloves. Other than that, she dresses? Absolutely normally, if she's your normal hijab, he was not in a closet. She dresses just like how she would at home. That's perfectly fine. But if she's in a closet, and she doesn't worry about while she's an ombre, and she doesn't wear gloves.

00:46:17--> 00:46:22

Do you need to take any special vaccination in preparation for that? I'm gonna know Saudi doesn't require any vaccinations.

00:46:28--> 00:46:38

Cool. Any other questions? When we'll be going we'll be going in sha Allah March 1 to march 9, so you can check it out at

00:46:40--> 00:46:42

00:47:01--> 00:47:10

And I'm going to call them to head get on with that. Yes, the province level line they send them said that that person who does run by Ramadan is like a hedge with me. So it's not just like 100 but it's like 100 with the profits of a lot so.

00:47:23--> 00:47:25

Can disabled people go of course disabled people can go.

00:47:27--> 00:48:03

What to Expect travel into a model with family and children? I don't know what to tell you. What's the question? I don't understand what the question is what to expect. You can expect that it's just like traveling with family and children anywhere else. It's going to be a lot slower. And you're gonna have to do a lot more waiting. But other than that, it's absolutely normal. I mean, the home is very accommodating of children and families. So when you go with your families, you'll be able to find places where you can sit together usually in the courtyard. But of course, when you go into the actual you know, how, then you get separated the men and the women will have you. Mr. Brian Davis

00:48:03--> 00:48:09

says I'm in California, we were able to join the group. Yeah, if you're in California, you can join the land package. So the land package means that you just

00:48:11--> 00:48:23

you just the land package means that you book your own flights, because we're flying out of JFK. Or you could fly to New York to chop it down. And you can join the group leaving from JFK. But all of that is on the website. blesseth wage.com.

00:48:32--> 00:48:38

Will busboys take care of our business? Yes. If you register and get all that data, you'll get it taken care of all of your pieces, Michelle.

00:48:40--> 00:49:19

Cool. If there are any other questions guys, you can just go to blesseth voyage.com striving soul Stryver says What if you don't have the means to go for a murder? What are other ways to get your die accepted? And you can make dua to Allah subhana data from wherever you are. You don't need to go on envelopes heavier accepted, all you need to do is raise your hands and be present. And ask ALLAH SubhanA data Allah says We gave that there are never any Akari view without a doubt either than that whenever my servants asked you about me I am near I respond to the call of the caller when they call upon me at any point in time, where you make dua to Allah subhanaw taala, your DUA is accepted. So

00:49:19--> 00:49:23

make dua lesses when My servants asked me about me than I am near,

00:49:24--> 00:49:33

he's near Allah is you can get to Allah faster than anybody can get to Mecca. That's the way that it goes.

00:49:40--> 00:49:40

Cool, cool.

00:49:42--> 00:49:49
