Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Today is day six
of the Hajj Chronicles.
day six, this is the last day of Hajj.
For those of you who left yesterday,
after doing your stoning
in May now,
if you went to MCE and that have to sunset, or before sunset, actually, you have to leave before sunset. As we said yesterday, if you didn't leave before sunset, you would need to stay to be obligatory for you to stay for the sixth day. That's the third day of
the third day in which you are praying supplicating remembering the law, and
stoning the colors.
Those are the main rights of these three days known as the days of testimony.
So, as we said, Today, your stoning should have been after
the midday prayer
after the midday prayer, not in the morning, as I mentioned yesterday, because some people will say okay, it's alright on the last day, you can start early and leave early know, the stoning for these three days are supposed to be after the midday. Now somebody may argue well, you know, what's the big deal? What does it matter whether you go before or whether you go after? Well, if it didn't matter, then the Prophet Mohammed Salaam would not have said Hulu and the monastics take your rights away from me, he would have said just go and do your own thing.
But he didn't.
He didn't tell us to do it anyway, anyhow, anytime, anyplace. He told us to take the rights from him, do them according to how he did them.
So this is a part of the Hajj itself, this is a part of submission,
submission to allow
submission to his commands, through following the messenger bot.
He has instructed us and he has done where the days were such that he did everything they were okay. You could do it any which way. You know, you're allowed to do one before the other that was on the 10
that was specific for the 10
he said whether you want stone first, or you slaughter First off, you make too often without first or you shave while the shaving is after two, but leave the shaving out these three acts on the day outside of the shaving, whether you do your stoning, then do your toe off, or do the stoning venue slaughter or slaughter first, then do your stoning. Then do it often without
shaving after doing any two of them. This
was on that day.
it was left open. That was the day the day when you could do it in any order.
At any time.
Well, not quite any place because can only stone where the pillars are you can just go stoning, cancer, you know, Masjid or houses. So we know that
doing those rights in the correct places, they need to be there in the correct places. But the timings the order, this was left open. So where that was allowable, the proper size alone made it clear and he gave instructions and the other item has where he didn't give those instructions, we have to assume that it should be done the way that he did it.
With The only exceptions being for those who have special conditions, women's Mensa starts in the middle
The hedge, you know, what do they do at this point that's such okay. There are certain allowances that are made for them etc to handle their situation. But other than that, we should follow the way of the pseudo law.
Because this is part of the way of purification, this is the way of coming close to a lot. You know, as Allah subhanaw taala said in the Quran in kuntum, buena life it is that you love Allah, that 10 year old need your
follow me the Messenger of Allah and the law will love you.
A law made conditional on the believers, in order for them to achieve and to attain
to gain the love of a law, that they must follow the messenger of Allah. So this is what Hajj is about. Hajj is about following the law. So
it's about worshiping Allah, above all else.
It's about following the traditions that will lead by Prophet Abraham,
his wife and his child, what they went through,
and the rights, which became a part of the pilgrimage as a result of what they went through.
And as defined by the Messenger of Allah, Mohammed, some of the lions, Allah, the last of the messengers of Allah.
So we should strive to follow his way.
So we do the stoning today,
after midday, after what is called as a while,
where the Sun reaches the Meridian, and it processes time of prayer when it's forbidden.
And today, we should have
fudger on time, because it would be a calamity.
If this morning, we got up and we missed the morning prayer. We're trying to purify ourselves. We're not it's not going to help us to miss the beginning prayer of the day,
the two Sundays before the two voluntary prayers that should be done before
we start off the day with that
sitting in our place, remembering a law reading on
when sunrise comes
we can make two minutes of prayer as opposed to someone recommended and said the one who does that gets the reward of making hedge.
Hedge with him.
So, you know, it's this is among the the x which gainers reward throughout the year. And we said that men are
and the aid is really practicing and implementing what we should have gained
the level of spirituality and obedience we should have learned we should have achieved in those beginning days of the actual Hajj pilgrimage.
So for those who went
yesterday, went to Mecca before
sunset, they went into Mecca or they run into Mina, sorry, into the Mecca is outskirts you know, rather than going directly to the Kaaba to do the final talk because we have one more major act. Besides our prayers, and prayers of course, once we've gone into Mecca, we should try to make as many of these prayers now before leaving as many of the prayers as we can in and around the karma.
the master where a single prayer there is worth 100,000 prayers elsewhere, with the exception of
mustard nabawi in Medina, the mosque of the Prophet
and master the officer in charge
loosen them, the
So except for these
all other locations, one prayer in Mecca,
in mustard oil or CBD facility is equal to 1000 100,000 prayers elsewhere.
So we should take advantage of this, this is unique, it's special.
So before we leave, we should do it. And then before we leave the masjid
The last thing that we should do, when we have already planned to travel
is what is known as the farewell to law. The law often with
the prophets, Allah told us
in our prayers that we should make a farewell prayer. He spoke about that before that in this period of time, we should be striving to make every prayer that we do a farewell prayer,
the prayer that we would do
if we were told that we only have this last prayer to make, before we leave this world,
our life will be over.
That type of prayer
is a unique prayer, a prayer that we don't normally do.
We treat prayers in
a very casual and negligent
and of course, the reward from guides casual and negligent prayers is going to be zero or next to zero.
That's the bottom line. For many of us who have been praying
and wondering why our prayers aren't answered, we just keep praying over and over again
by just doing the ritual
our brains, our minds, our souls our heights elsewhere.
Those are not farewell prayers
and those prayers out there
and the prayer is the first thing that we're going to be asked about
so we've really put ourselves between a rock and a hard place they are in grave danger
if we don't take care of prayer, we're going to be in very grave danger
when we are resurrected
and even in this life
there are consequences a lot chooses what they will be
and we would have to face them
so the point is that when we go back into Mecca
don't just go and stay in the housing
in the accommodations the ad group has arranged for you just spend their now relaxing you know your finger hatches over only thing left and so often we die You know I can just not take it easy. Relax, you know chat, walk around. Just had is over. No, No, it isn't.
Until you make the waffle we die. Your hedges not
still on hatch. Yes, you may have taken off your crown, which you already did. Those three days. Most people will take your arm some people might keep it on
due to not having made the option father, they may have kept it on will make it off from the Father so they can take it off later. It's possible, but most people will have taken off there.
So the whole stoning procedures and going back into Mecca they're not they've come out of that state that consecrated state wherein they weren't allowed to trim their fingernails cut their hair. You know where perfume is supposed to be. And some people feel Oh no, you shouldn't even make because if you bathe and you rub yourself maybe hairs will fall off. No. If you remove hair from embodying chipping, trim your shaving. Whatever you move here like that. Then there is a consequence you have to smile.
But if you just accidentally wipe while it's bathing, rubbing your body or face whatever some ears fall off women
are washing their hair and here's follow, there's nothing that doesn't count. It's not considered as having violated the state of consecration known as your crop.
So once we have left that state,
that consequences state,
we're now stepping closer to the state that we will be when we return home. Why not? Under restrictions?
restrictions are being lifted. So now how do we behave?
Do we just leave the Hajj behind us?
Finished, done, have the nilla.
Now I can get back to my normal life. Since we're taking it that way, then for sure when we get back home, whatever we learned on Hajj will be gone,
will be lost.
Our hedge will be lost.
Because how we conduct ourselves after returning will determine whether the hadr is acceptable or not.
Whether terrified is of sin or not, we will know.
We can tell by how we conduct ourselves.
So we have to be very careful.
This last day, as I advise people, we're there to stay on for this last day, you've come all of this way from around the world come here.
Don't cut it short.
That's really for people you know who live in Arabia, close to the harem, they can come and go anytime they want. You know, they can make O'Meara it's just very easy for them, it's there available to that they want to go back on the 12th instead of the 13th. No problem. But for you, you who have come from all the way across the world.
You want to come and cut things short.
It's not really
the advantage of leaving a day early
is far less than the advantage of staying on for that extra day.
It was prescribed.
It was set for our benefit.
when we go into Mecca,
this too often we die,
we're going to save it. So that is basically the last thing that we do in Mecca before Why is too often.
So if there were some shopping that you need to do, go and do it first.
Don't go and make it often without and then you're going to go shopping and hang it around. Maybe you're there for another day. No, no, this is the last thing that you do before leaving
a hat on.
So do all the other things you have to do. And now, because you're still in that hadj mode, because you still have too often the die, then during that period of time, you should be still conscious,
aware of what you've just experienced.
Mentally, some changes should have taken place. So you are conducting yourself in another way, in a way influenced by the rights
to build image rights.
So after you have finished off all the things that you need to do,
and you're now prepared to go
many times the buses will come in and wait for the people it will make you go off, join the bus and you need.
Now we have trains which are coming through. So it's going to depend on whether you're on a train or whether you're on a bus, whether you're in a car depending on the group that you're traveling with.
Anyway, we'll come back into the home
and you had for the Blackstone
If you're able to
touch it, if you have to fight to touch it, then
it's better that you don't touch it than to hurt another Muslim trying to touch it. Because the prophet SAW Selim told us I will Muslim, the true Muslim man Solomon Muslim Muna melissani, who led
the true Muslim is one from whose tongue and his hand, Muslims are safe.
This is the true Muslim process.
So anytime you have to wait between harming a Muslim
and taking a benefit,
always give up that benefit and avoid harming another or another human being
Muslim because mostly Muslim living amongst Muslim but in general, it's harming another fellow human being, or even harming an animal.
limit wave instead.
When you wave
when you wave at it,
you don't kiss your hand. Yes, you touched it, you kiss your hand
instructed. But when you just wave you don't wave and you start your talk. The Black Stone is the starting point of the talk.
We're not worshipping the black stone.
And that's why we can do the whole Hajj without ever touching the Blackstone.
So don't think
that it is an object of worship. It's not
and we make the dough off.
If possible between the maqam Ibrahim and the Kaaba, it's better to do in there if you can't you have to go by lay around behind Muhammad Ibrahim we do what you have to do. What you're able to do,
you avoid what is called a hedger. This maelle. Behind the Kaaba is a semi circular wall with two entrances, one on one side of the Kaaba and one on the opposite side.
You see people going in there and praying.
If you walk through there, you have canceled your toe off, you have to go and do that talk over again. Because it's considered to be a part of the Kaaba and Prophet Abraham built the Kaaba. He didn't build it in the shape that we see it now
in a cube shape, it was a cube like in the front part. So the front part was the shape, but then the back was circular.
That was the shape which he built it. So that represents the remainder of the Kaaba, which in the last rebuilding
and the time of the Prophet
by the pagan Qureshi. When they ran out of money, they were rebuilding the cabin and to make sure that they knew this much, though they are, you know, off the beaten, etc. But they knew that they couldn't use
corrupt money to build the cabin. So
when they ran out of clean money,
they had to stop and that's where they ended up in the queue. And then for the remainder, they just put that wall to indicate the remainder of the gabaa.
That space became known as hedger is mine smile said it's mine was very good, but it's not. It's not true.
That's not the case.
So the toe off should go around.
And when you come to the other side,
opposite the black stone, you touch the m&a corner. If you're able, if you can't touch it and leave it you keep walking you don't wave. Keep walking in from there you make your profit
or loss give us
well Phil Ashkelon in the life to come.
Enough in junior high center of activity has enough
Lord, give us good in this life good in the next life for Canada, Vietnam, and protect us from the punishment of the hellfire.
That's the one which is prescribed. So all those law books you see people buying and spending a lot of time with
these books are really of no use, because they should come from your heart.
Somebody is just reading texts in Arabic and you're just repeating after
there is no
if there is it not an Arabic speaker, okay, this is a reminder of laws that you need to make. One please make, though they say well, you make this law on this circuit and this one on this circuit and that one on that circuit, there's actually no evidence for that you can do whatever device you want to do.
And the best two hours will be the ones coming from you or
those are the best.
in this case, focus on your own.
This is between you and Allah Remember, the last element said that tawaf going around the Kaaba is Sala, it is prayer, it is formal prayer, except that they're speaking as we speak it
as the only difference. So keep that in mind as you made
and when you complete the boss, now that is the last of your relationship with the Kaaba Mecca
is the time now to be
and you head back to gender to catch your plane off from here many people go up to Medina north to Medina to pray in the province our Salah was mosque
was the Hajj is over. Now you leave not some people question? Is it better to just stay in Mecca, you know, you have another week or another three days another whatever.
Medina they spent up there and they come back.
And they will tell you all you need is even nicer than Mecca.
But if you only have three or four days, it's better for you to stay
because those prayers there
100 times more valuable than prayer
100 times more valuable than prayer each prayer in Medina in the mastering process.
Each brand Mecca is worth 100 more than that prayer Medina. So why should you be
there any point of question?
Should there be any debate of which one better? No. The problem is our setup has told us that then it is clear that the best place to be is in Mecca. better for you to stay on as extra three days there in Mecca. Make your extra prayers there.
Save your toe after the last two often with that
last final talk last thing before you leave.
If you want to do now photo off you can make the intention that this is your final too often that's it. Don't do anything after that.
It's better to do that.
We will say but you come this one bad chance for you to get here. You come here and you know maybe you have been praying the mosque of the prophet SAW some didn't the prophet SAW Some say that whoever comes for Hajj and prays there and does not come and pray in Medina has slighted me. Didn't the prophet SAW Selim say that? No, he didn't.
Yeah, there are some narrations which are quoted but they're false.
They're not true. They're not authentic. It is better for you to spend that time in.
If you come again for all around, okay, after aamra you've completed your aamra you can go to Medina or when you are coming here, go to Medina first on your way
and then you come into Mecca. Then after that
give you time to macro
priority is macro even though maybe as people say the people of Medina they're much nicer than the people of Mecca
we didn't come here to socialize
we came here to worship
so don't let these other issues shape on Satan will put these ideas in your head oh it's better you know the people of Medina they're much nicer people better to spend your time with them you know you'll feel a whole nother vibe and things of being in Medina and then there is also you know to go visit a herd and the graveyard of Medina bacteria and all this other but did the mumps or some of them say that when you make ads make sure you go to
go to you know, mustard.
Mustard provided the service No it didn't.
Well, people came to make ads came and made Hajj They spent their time in Makkah
Don't be fooled. Don't be tricked.
Makka is hatch
had just out of process upset. But I'm saying in relationship to where you're going to do your hatch had just connected with Mecca, you stay within and close to.
So once that is completed,
then we leave
make sure you
by monitor. Or even if I ended up leaving aftermarket Sony wireless over time, because then the third day of the ship is over. Remember the days begin with sunset.
The day begins with the setting of the sun.
Once the sun has set the new day, the night of the next day begins. This is the lunar calendar. So the day is going to me over this third day will be over with the setting of the sun. So make sure you do your stoning before the sun.
Once the sun has set, are you obliged to leave men or right away? No.
But because you want to be
born into Makkah arranging your affairs so that you can start doing your prayers in Mecca. If you can catch a shine maca tried from the time Mina is over, you're going from Mecca now. Because this is where you're ending it ending.
So that Asia that night, if you can get in, go in and catch Alicia
and then pray your father and your door and your acid and your mother and your Asia in
to do harm. Try to keep all your prayers there as much as possible, as much as the circumstances allow you to do. Some people have got suites, hotels, whatever right next to the items. So that's very easy for them to do it. Maybe you are in the outskirts of Mecca with a hotel, whatever they put you in. So you can't just go in and out just like that. It's not as easy.
You know, so they'll drop you in there for fudger and they'll collect you at a time that's it
against the on any further you know it's limited or you have to come back for lunch and you go back out again. Whatever you follow the schedule that's there try to spend as much time as you can there in Mecca, with must
finish off your hives in the nicest way possible, the most pleasing to allow weight
loss is happiness.
Because you have given your all everything that you have, you have given it to your pilgrimage. May Allah accept it and reward you with purification from sin. Your return the one like a towel, newly born free from sin
that we get the ultimate reward from Hajj which is Jana.
May Allah give you all
and for those of us who are not there, and even those of us there
we wish you also an acceptable
EAD extension of the heat these last three days. A common law minimum income, they're like separate from us, and from you. It mobarak it, Kareem heats it.
