appraise due to a lack of a lot of Peace and blessings.
And all those who find the process of righteousness. And so the last day,
before going into the last section,
we will just make a brief summary of what the amount was talking about in the book. But
today, I'm talking about
the, say the trial.
we talked about that earlier,
the idea that
it's training for the individual to control the various parts of his body, that
parts of his body that
these parts of the body will testify for or against him on the Day of Judgment.
And the eyes
were required doing some art to look to one particular spot, shouldn't be looking around all over the place. And this is training. So we said that the benefits from Dharamsala one, the purpose of God is realizing control and design is not just looking all over the place, looking, you know, maybe into places you shouldn't be looking at cetera. And of course, you know, for us,
especially as males, one of the big, you know, fitness or trials of the eyes, is looking at women.
And this is, you know, probably the main point.
One of the main points that the amount was talking about the trials of looking at women, and looking at women doesn't necessarily mean the women were walking on the society, it could be, for example, the magazines, almost every store that you go into, they have a rack of magazines, they're the cover of the magazines, you know, is a beautiful women, I made this may not as in the case of in Philippines or in America, where they will have maybe the whole body of the woman there and these pictures, the woman will be sitting her face and she's when she's covered, mostly she may be covered. But still, you know, they have chosen a woman who's particularly beautiful
for the purpose of attracting the eyes of those who would come near the magazine so that they will buy this magazine. And of course, these magazines are built on the outside this is written these magazines are supposed to be for women, most of the people who buy these magazines and flip through the pages of magazines, and then we can see that these magazines in themselves they present a fitness
because Elon has said that the I commit Jenna that is a commit fornication or adultery depending whether you are you know, married or whether you are not, the eyes will commit fornication. And therefore dedication is staring at
that which is around for them.
And he said the private pilot will confirm the fornication or deny.
And I'm sure you understand what he means when he says the province tries to confirm it or deny that if there is some reaction, then this is telling you you're involved in.
Right, because the last element also said that the first look, as he told me even to be solid, he told him that he should not follow one loop with another loop. That is in the sense that if somebody you know you're walking in the street, or you're working on your job or whatever, and a woman comes into your presence, and you see her, you can't help but see her. The fourth is that at the point that you have seen her, then you should look away
You should not follow up after seeing her, you continue to stare at her.
Because, you know constantly looking at women, what this does, is it creates you know desires in the individual
desires and the individual which he may not and likely is not able to fulfill.
So all he's doing is building a frustration within himself is building up more and more frustration within itself. And of course, you know, psychologists
have shown that you know these types of situations that a person builds within itself it will come out in different ways. It will come up in his actions in his dealings with other people
as it will affect him because anytime you have this kind of frustration that it's not just that it stays inside of it, it doesn't come back out. No it will come out in other forms of action. So the Muslim you know is advised that he should avoid staring you know as women avoid these magazines if you turn your head up the magazine
Don't go looking through our magazines and looking around women seeing how beautiful they are, I mean, even without opening the pages, just looking at the coverage,
you should avoid
it not saying that you have to walk around everywhere with your eyes staring on the ground, but that is
a beautiful face classes, your vision,
you know, without your intention, you should not
continue it, you should not follow it up and build up, you know, the desires within yourself.
This is, of course, you know, the, as I said, the main point is the amount of developing in the footwork. And it's a lesson that you know, we should all take heed to, and try to put into practice in our daily life. He also mentioned another Hadith or standards of the Prophet, Allah, English, he has said that you have one, look, and they see somebody, and that person, you know, has created a desire inside himself, he should go to his wife, because his wife has what that person has.
So as a person, I mean, of course, some of you don't have your wife here with you or you're not married, then for you, I mean, you just have to be even that much more careful. And the last element said, you know, if you can't get married, you should find
is the alternative is not masturbation. Some people take the alternative as being masturbation, that is causing yourself to ejaculate by playing with your yourself. This is not an alternative.
Alternative. Solomon said, you know, all young men, those amongst you who are able to get married to get married,
whether it has the means to get married, get met, and those who are not able to fat. This is the Islamic alternative fasting,
that improves down the life because of what the plant what is involved in the fact that massage requires one to control one, no thoughts, or actions, etc. And also the fact that, you know, you're denying the body, you know, certain foods such as this house, to decrease the desires of the individual. So this is the Islamic law services. And as I said, not masturbation. Because masturbation does not solve the problem, it only increases the problem, and the person develop that as a habit becomes his habits.
So, for those who are married, if one sees somebody who's attracted in this fashion, and the bank says, we should just go home and be with our wives, because ultimately, when you take away all you know, the looks and everything else, it comes down to one basic thing, which your wife has, that the person has to help remove this from the individuals who are married. Okay, so from the trauma, we now move on to the last section of our
series on hatch.
And prior to this, we looked over the practices of ombre.
And the basic pillars that were involved with on there are what should be what should be avoided, et cetera. And now we're moving on into the Hajj itself.
And we're starting from the eighth day of the hijab, because the Hajj itself officially begin on the eighth day of the hijab. And on the eighth day, the first who has intended to make Hajj
similar, but those who are just making hash by themselves of that, that was just called and said, had a thought, or that has by itself not involving anyone, but the first one that did he put on his arm, if he was in Mecca, Mecca, if he was inside Mecca, he had come from a long time before or he was a resident of Mecca, he put on a different at that point and he goes through a minute, if he was coming from the outside, what he does is, of course he put on the cloud when he crosses the new path. And when he comes into Mecca, he does recall a lot to do the arrival to all those and make the circuit seven circuits around GABA right without going and making the the psyche or the walking
between stuff on motorway just make seven circuits around GABA. And from there, I mean, if you came a day before whatever, he would do the rest of his Salah, and on the eighth day, he would now head out those who are making Hajj Iran, we said that those who brought along with them the animal that they're going to slaughter, they were dead ready after they made the oma. They kept on their farm they're not allowed to take the llama, no matter how long before they made. They have to keep on their farm. And at that point, they just hit out with the animals.
So those who are making what we said was hatch them up to the combine
Hajin Amara without bringing the animal that we're both sacrifice with us. Then we said after they had made their overall
after they had made their own law, they took off their
rights and they returned back to a normal state doing anything they were doing prior to the farm, which was allowed for them to do. So now after
the eighth day
of the hedger come, they now put their farm back on again, with the intention for making Hajj and they go to Mina. Mina is just outside of Mecca.
they spend the night they go there, from you know, anytime the eight day starts actually, in the Islamic calendar, the night begins on the day before.
Well if you've realized it or not, but like today is what they have shown. Anybody know what's today?
The trough of sorrow Well, okay, the night of the trough was yesterday night after
writing to the lunar calendar. The night
on the day before.
And then from yesterday at
the flop began. And it ends today is Mother's
So nice to be Optimizely will begin to 13
this is how the, the purple from the night or during the day he heads out to dinner.
And he spends
which would become like the night of the of the night there he spends that in minutes. And the morning of the night
set out for powerful
because of the fact that the Prophet Muhammad had said that Hajj is out and had
people have taken that as an excuse for not going to minute.
But really, this is, you know, distorting the intent of the Prophet Muhammad, Allah and the intent of the law in the pillar of hatch. The hatch should be made complete, as long as we're able to make it. But if for some reason, we're not able to get there
on the eighth to make it the middle and we have to go straight to Halifax, it is possible to complete our ads by making it clarify, but it is not something that we intend.
When we intentionally avoid going to Mina, because we know that
this is no good.
Really, it is against the spirit. You know what it is similar to you may see this in some of the matches
among the children,
especially during summer we
will do young kids that they will sit talking in the back of the masjid until the amount says a lot of walk but it goes into some running up and down.
It's true. The Tavistock element says that we have where you know catches the will for the bowing he has caught that regard. right this is the principle
that this does not mean that you should no get back. You know, taking a drink and talking with your friends until they come to the point that you go running cattle.
It is no good because it is intentional. Now because the prophets our fellow man also said last a lot that the man lamea probably but there is no salon. The salon is not acceptable for one who doesn't read the first half. That is one who is able to read the fact that and chooses not to eat if you have
kids who are thinking that they are learning their to fill out the capsule for this in fact that is not acceptable.
This is where it becomes very important that we understand the letter of the law and the spirit of the law. Because if you just go by the electoral law, you can change
the intent of the religious practices
you can make them into
the spirit has to be there the spirit has to be understood. Otherwise, the actions become just blind ritual
meaningless rituals, which we're doing like a physical exercise when you're in a normal
No reward No, no desire to please allow no reward involved in this at all.
It's just like turning a monkey to go through the actions of as he goes through you think allows most rewarding is done through the physical actions
like athletes who came here with a desire to see,
see the Kaaba because of course, they knew that it was forbidden for non Muslims to go in there. So some non Muslims, they had this adventurous, you know, desire to come to see what they call the holiest of holies right. So they would begin, you know, like filby pretend to be Muslim, Muslim. Now another one, his name is
Richard, Richard Burton is another individual,
not the actual now, but another one by
Richard Burton, he pretended to be Muslim,
so that he could come in to make Hajj. So he went through and did all the actions of Hajj. So he could come in and see what the Kaaba look like. And then he came up into pictures. And you know,
those actions that he did, of course, is no reward for, although he has gone through all of the actions and had the most the most, there is no reward for it for him, because the belief wasn't there.
His intention was something similar to the one who goes to make heads.
Because, for example, he wants to add them in like, the gun fighter in the West. And they
have the American Standard in the movies Anyway, you know, after he killed, somebody would put a notch on the,
the handle of his gun, or the airplane pilots when they sat down. No one with any of the aircraft, he put a little marker on the side of his aircraft to indicate how many he had killed, right? This was a source of pride. Similarly, a fine Muslim will tell you I've made 30 hash.
I've made 10 has how many of you made one are you for fellow? I mean, he doesn't know. He's not conscious. But the Prophet Muhammad wa sallam only made one?
He only made one. All
right. But for him, it is you know, he can make as many as he right. So he can tell us? Well, you know, I've made hats every year. I've made hats 30 times. It is a source of pride. Those hedges that he is making you think that allies rewarding him for these badges. With this intention, his intention is to have something which would make him superior to his comrade to the people around him. You think a lot of
is why as the Prophet said, in them an Imam Binya deeds will be judged by their intentions.
When it comes down to said important that the Spirit has to be there, otherwise the lecture becomes a meaningless ritual. So
if a person is unable to make it two minutes, and go sit, the RFID tags will still be complete.
But if one is able he should go to dinner, and spend the night minute on the morning.
Oh, I should say also that Ross is in minute he joins and shortens his salon.
We talked about that before in salon, the before and after Maghrib and Isha prayers are joined together and they shorten in the case of Bahasa and Asia Of course, neither of which is three Raka, three units of fraidy. Cat shorten, it stays the same. But shorten them down to two units of prayer each and you play them one immediately after the other with one of them and to comment.
On the morning of the night.
The Muslim and Islam he sets out to herefor.
And he should spend, he tries to get into some of the problems has to boil
just after dinner, right. Shortly after sunrise, he sets off for our phrase budget in other words in minutes, and he sets off.
And if he can get into earlier now because transportation will get us there earlier. No harm. But it was the center of the problem of SLM civilian just after the war. And the war is sprayed there just after the war comes in meaning the size of the company I don't mean after he would praise the work. And after they're in this plane of America. You will find
a lot of people when they come into arafah they will go straight to a middle note that there was a pillar on the top which is called the mount of mercy. Jebel Rama
And then we'll climb up to different levels of making prayer that you can buy pictures. You know, they have Hajin Mecca widow show pictures of these people all over the smoking thing. But actually, this is not a right.
This is not a rite of passage. Although, as I said, you'll find people found it, they're fighting to get up on this mountain to pray on this mountain mount of mercy. The problem is, I did not do it.
And it was not something that to do. And he said
he should take the rites of passage from me. We do it according to how I do it.
But this has become a popular myth amongst Muslims and they climb a pipe to climb up on this mountain, they spent all this time on this mountain, you know, praying on this mountain, whereas the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad was to be in the flame of alpha, and to pray there.
Now, after sunrise, or sunset, sorry, in
the plane Have
you set out for Metallica, this is on the way, coming back now a minute. But one thing
we should spend as much of our time in prayer asking the Lord's forgiveness, we do prime various acts of worship either doing you know extra prayers, whatever, blah,
We should try to engage all of this time in some form of worship, reflection on our life, after lots of forgiveness, various things, you know, that we need forgiveness for life, after lots of guidance, etc, we shouldn't spend the time a lot of times when you go there, he will just spend the time talking about
worldly things, we think which have really no connection to the rites of passage and what we're therefore
we should try during the course of
Hajj or Umrah or any act of worship that we're doing, we should try to make
mine concentrated on a law
of sickness, pleasure, happiness, forgiveness,
guidance, this should be you know, the essence of our worship.
And after that, we pray them together
Normally, you would expect to pray your mother immediately after sunset. But here what happens is that you delay the trailer
until you reach
velyka where are you play the Netherlands and Asia together
in the three Raka unit, and he is ready to do
is a relatively small area. So people tend to be quite crowded there and you will probably end up sleeping out in the open what has happened. It was again because
the basic the minimum requirements for one who is unable to spend a
period of time in the zelicah is to make the fair there needs to have stood there and made the prayer. So if you are forced for some reasons to just stand there, make the prayer and carry on Well then, you know it would be accepted as having fulfilled the requirements of Magellan. But if you are able,
you should not only pray there but you spend the night there.
But what has happened again, because people are taking the minimum
companies that deal with guiding people through Hajj will do is they will drive them they may even drive them straight through with Delphi just looking at new villified keep on and drag them onto minutes or just stop enough time for them to play getting back on the buses and carry them out.
Again, you have to be very careful that we don't get in a situation where you know these companies or whatever it's just going to rush us through how much we don't get the full benefits.
When we get the move Delica said we should get down make the model number the issue there and spend the night sleeping. They don't necessarily have to stay up all night. Some people say
you know I'm proud of the night spray. sleep until you get up and pray there.
One other practice you'll find people doing them is that they'll be gathering stones. see them going around looking for stones. They'll gather a big bag of
which is for two days of Sterling in minutes.
And if they're going to stay for free, they'll gather up 63
The fact is that the government did not gather and
it didn't work out. And they love to see people doing that take the stones, wash them and everything, put them in a special bag.
Did you see like people are breaking
these will not
fragile in Delphi and set out a minute. And when he came into the region of Mina, he sent the alpha Hardy was with him to go pick up some pebbles.
Picking up the pebbles in minutes is sufficient.
And you pick up enough to do the sterling for that day. But picking up again a big bag of soil Do you want to carry around love around with you through the rest of the day,
pick up seven because the next day you pick up seven more in your store.
And this is
you have to be very careful said you're in the process of O'Brien is back to the pads. People have innovated inside the minute practices, which have nothing to do with the practice of
in the performance of
the salon allow
the women and children to leave
Midnight, because of the crush of the crowd there when the stoning is taking place, he allowed them to leave early to go into Miller and
do the sterling which is the throwing of the pebble at three different points which are known as the gem rock.
Okay, on the show dogs, but they're not cheap on the general general.
So he's allowed for those who are weak, physically, they're not able to take the crush of the crowds or women to go ahead and do the filming earlier.
Now, when we get into midnight after
right after we get in, we go to the largest general known as Gemma, Papa.
And sorry, I said that it is the actual number of stones that you throw it will be seven for each Gemma.
it probably around 21. But you can pick up seven doors to the front, if you find another seven, and throw like this is fine. Or you can pick up the 21 and go to each already.
You say Allahu Akbar, with each symbol that is thrown, and a person or somebody might be throwing all seven at one time was not allowed to throw one at a time. And the devil said this now. Because at first some people are taking some big titles throwing them in our first they missed the gemba, and somebody on the other side is getting hit in the head. And so of course,
you have to be very careful in the process that we go in our enthusiasm to practice the rites of passage, we don't hurt others. Right? So it shouldn't, some people are waiting their way back away from the gemba. And then throwing the stones in original Jabra hitting the people ahead of them, have to be very careful to make sure that you wouldn't try to practice your rights. You don't hurt all this, you know, you have to pay attention to practice the rights of how do you make sure you do it properly Get up, work your way to the present to your store, you know, one at a time, a lot of walkways. And you may see also some people climate agenda
with a huge meeting agenda, they have this idea in their mind and this is shaped
in order beginning six and you know, whatever they're there in their mind, umbrellas, whatever they're in their mind, the agenda somehow is shaped and the other tries to you know,
they will find people throwing shoes
at the gemba. But again, novices you know, ignorant, ignorant. And this fall back also on the Muslim communities where these people are coming from because it's very important that the communities inform the people on what is the rites of passage, what is required of them before they go without the responsibility. As we said in the beginning, when we're talking about when a person is intending to make it his personal responsibility to find out all that is required of him.
Because if he doesn't know what he's doing, he shouldn't go
because he's liable to go there and do what he's not supposed to do is just get into a frenzy and do what everybody else has which may be bizarre maybe against the family be harming other people.
becomes like a sin against rather than a blessing.
Now after throwing the stones we said decided the largest jumbo, and this is before the stone, the price in the middle and the smallest.
After that, the first thing was to perform what is known as double. That is sacrificing the animal sacrifices and sheep are both different if he's making Hajj to Mecca,
right, or he's making Hajj get on with take an animal the sacrifice.
Now, the situation is
such that, you know, you get tickets and so on. So it is better for you to slaughter the animal yourself. If it's not possible, or, for example, you get sick at the sight of blood or whatever, you know, it's possible to give the money to somebody else or through an agency for them to slaughter for you. But it's better for us to slaughter the animal yourself. And after slaughter the animal you should eat some of the meat that should be cooked up and you should eat from it also, and then give the rest away and charity to the people I've met.
Before course, you may have a difficult time finding for people of Mecca now. And it is allowable that the meat or the skins whatever be given to the company that handles the loss of the animals and they can it and send it to now being sent frozen, some of the animals can
vary very popular lifting world where people are in need of food.
some people have asked, you know, what really is the significance of the stolen, you know, what is the
meaning behind it.
There have been some explanations given that
these explanations are not based on authentic ID that
Abraham, on his way to sacrifice his son is mine.
People had come to him at different points and tried to dissuade him from making the sacrifice. And that at this point, you're throwing pebbles
and you know, two seconds to go away really telling him to go. Now this is not really hasn't been authenticated by statements of profit. So we can't really say that. This is a fact store which has been handed down along with that.
As far as we know, this is a life that
we're throwing the pebble thing, a lot of rock by the time and, you know, asking allows refuge from
it's not really for us to go to find an explanation where no explanation has been given. If we find something
makes us feel better above the right side, but to go and tell others that this is why we do it, we have to be very careful, because then we can start a false idea which can carry on and we will be held accountable in normal fiama for everyone was heard that idea believes the contract.
whoever men send this will never happen or whoever, you know, starts a good practice.
That is a practice which is in accordance to Islam. He will get the reward
for everybody who does that practice, or who benefits from that prime
example he builds a match.
Everybody will praise Him that match it until
he will get a reward for everybody.
Everybody would take the benefit.
He builds the Islamic school.
He writes a book or whatever he does some good deed. This is one of the few things that a person can benefit from after his death. He's done a good deed and this good deed has repercussions, which carries on he gets the reward that everybody gets from that app without decreasing their reward at all.
But if he stopped the backpack
like for example, he smoked cigarettes
and his children smoked cigarettes following his friends and their children and their children and their children we talked about last time I'll join you carefully you know with in detail why cigarette smoking is hard. So he started a
practice in his family. Every child and his children's children graduate and carry on everybody who commits that
comes back on Yama, Yama
only done a little haraam grammar, you find his scale of these, you know overburdened with this Tara which is carried on because he started that and he will hold
Since everyone cares.
So we have to be very careful what we do
that if we are an error, we do an error that this error is not passed on to others.
If you realize you've made an error, we have to catch those other people and tell them this is an error, please don't do it. If you do it, this is on you. It's not on me.
if you for example, in language, Islam, you heard a story,
you know, which was a false story.
And you as until somebody, then you find out afterwards, it's not true, you have a duty to go back and tell that person the mistake.
So you're not part of the process of carrying something on.
That's why I said if you come to some kind of reasoning, in your own mind,
better for you to keep it to yourself.
Right, rather than passing it on, otherwise, we end up passing on falsehood, and you have to carry the weight of it.
In terms of slouching, this is clearly in commemoration of Prophet Abraham.
Command, the commands is given to him by lots of slaughter,
witnesses commemorating this slaughter,
an animal was given to slaughter in the place of his son, because this was a test of his faith. For us as Muslims, this is our test of our faith, our willingness to sacrifice some of the things of this life of this dunya. This is the material.
Solid animal represents a side of our material.
Well, we're not taking the money which is involved in buying the animal, we are not an animal,
that this is representative of our willingness to sacrifice some of the things that a lot has given us.
We should also note the fact that Ally's pointed out in the plan, that the flesh and blood of animals does not meet your law, the law teaches him is the spirit of your piety.
that the, it is the intention behind the slaughter of Will it be willing to sacrifice part of the vignette for a lot, this is what a lot of it is not the blood
and the flesh of the animal, we eat from the animal, and we
give away the rest of South Africa as a good deed, which inshallah Allah will accept.
That condition the flesh to the animal, you know, this is in the notes that you'll be getting
ready to go into now. But the point is that the animal should not be in any way damaged, or,
you know, we've read in other words, when we're going to get something for a lie, we give the back.
We don't take from that, which is ministers who have the basic principle, you know, when you're going to get set up, if for example, you don't take your own, your old worn out shoes, your clothes that are tattered that, you know, you no longer are able to we're not because they're too small for you. But because they're so broken up, this is what you're given charge. No.
You got to give, you're going to get into it again, from the things that you love. This is the ones this is the ones that have the greatest reward when you get them from the things that you love. Of course, if you have some things that you've grown out of, you know, if you're if you're too big right now, whatever you do small, free, anything good should you give yourself, but you should, it's very important that when you give a lot of pleasure, you give things that are of value.
Similarly, when you're going to choose an animal, you don't find a first you can find they'll be selling some animals that are really young. Yes, now you're cheap. But these are not acceptable for animals, you know, the cheaper lifestyle now they got diseased diagnol can you get them cheap, you see people that are they, they shouldn't be selling it,
the people and God is harming them,
because they shouldn't be
because they're causing some people to be incomplete or to be damaged to the arm. And similarly, you should not be looking to try to find a person when you're trying to buy the animal to try to find you know, any reasonable size, but not to the point where you're getting an animal which is diseased or damaged in any way. The animals should be healthy, you know, burn cetera.
making the sacrifice, then we do what is known as the hunt.
We either shave the head off, or we put our hair and stuff it was a shame to hear that someone
had asked the Lord's mercy for those and shaved their hair.
He repeated that three times.
Somebody was asking, Well, what about those who cut their hair?
repeated is that, you know, after shave the hair, and the man asked him after the third time, then he said, Okay, well, I bless those who didn't decoding, that the shaving of the year, is much more highly recommend.
And for those of us who have great attachment to the here, then it becomes even a greater
act for the first. Because, you know, for those of us who spend a lot of time in front of the mirror, you know, making sure the here goes this way. And you know, for when they grow up, and they have grown to want to put a little bit because they don't want it to balance, this is a test for them, especially, nevertheless, it doesn't really matter if it's a big test. But a lot of what is hidden
and involved in there is some humility, because people feel proud about their hair. By removing that here. This is also some humility, taking you back to really how when you were born, and you came, you know, as you were created, you were created. Well, here, of course, some people are born here in the head, right? No, but initially, the initial stages when they're being formed in the room, out here, you hear something that comes nature.
And it's really of no consequence. When you die, does it matter whether you're here with long and Mason clearly are,
they things really are of no consequence. So we should not we should try our best not to get involved and tied up in that if you find, for example, that you're telling 15 minutes in the morning, the commoner here, then we know something is wrong here. You know, for the Muslim, he's not be caught up in this.
It's better to hear down to a point where in the morning, you just do something simple, and you're going to waste time, this kind of
shouldn't be wasting time on dialysis.
After making the sacrifice to shave your hair or flip it, and at this time also be good to fit the fingernails and toenails, shave the hair under the armpits and around the profit.
go on had
to make a sacrifice.
To make a sacrifice on Big Macs on the 10th day of
the 10th day, we make a sacrifice,
that if we're not able to make the sacrifice, you know because of lack of money, or the animal that we have, we need, for example, for the nest for our family, whatever. You know, those of you back in the Philippines, when it comes
to the aid,
you should make the sacrifice if you can, if you can't instead, you slip your hair
and your fingernails toenails in your mustaches and shave your pubic hair here on the private side.
Just what you do.
In terms of the factor that we mentioned mentioned factoring before we know that certain cases are not allowed, it should be known that that they should not be done on the ninth
and the 10th.
But you may not know chapter 13 especially for those those who are
those who are not able to make the sacrifice. Although they made the intention for their own Robert they don't have the money to make the sacrifice the animals is too expensive. Then instead they fast.
After he completed the
shaving and clipping, he can go again to Mecca to perform the nature of which is known as a father
to Mecca then, and we perform the Seventh Circuit, it could be on the 10th day because when we said the ninth day in America, we spent the night
in the tent now that we started our storming, right. So on this day we can also go to
Mecca or we can go at night it doesn't necessarily have to be during the day depends on the ability that if you want to feel smarter when you hear you're able to go You should go there. If you're too weak, for example, the struggles that have been involved, you know, your knees down to rescue Google sleep
Raise sleep and then when you regained your place you can go ahead to perform the thought.
you play the two units appear behind the place of Abraham, Nepal
and at this point after completing that go between Safa model
so it's almost like what we do is here we're doing like a little Omer in the middle of what it is really is that you know has has in it the rights that we do for our own lives like a shortened version of you know, outside of the hatch time. So, the time when we come here we make
Makati Brahim we go and make the site or the walk in between.
This is not for the faint of heart
If we didn't pay for guns in the night, we go back to Milan and we complete spending the night in Vienna and the next day which is the 11th
on the 11th we stole after the
after the war and then we go to make the story of the three Jamaat
and we spend the night again minute on the disinfection process on the day of the 11th
and we repeat the right
at this point we can return
make the loss with a call to loss
and with that are the fellows are off and leave
or we can spend 13 they also
alive given this as an option in the farm itself. For those who wish to go back early, they are allowed to do to go back after completing the job. And those who would like to stay on they can stay on do it on the 13th but the point is whether you finish on the 12th and 13. Before leaving Mecca The last thing you should do before leaving Mecca is to make the flop and make the final seven circuits you know as farewell and leave
So that completes the
basic rights. As I said the notes have more details as well as it has in it the description of the topic as the seller you can
get a better picture for yourself. If you have any questions after reading it over next week, you know we can look at that also. But for now Shall we stop here? And if anybody has any questions on what we've covered or any questions unless you've read during the week, please ask the questions.
Before the hair could be done before the
night before the study
you can do it that way. Whether you shave your head before the slaughter or optimists love
him and asked him about it he said about it
a perfectly good escape you should be careful not to take the cover and cover your head because you know when you're not supposed to cover your head
you'll see some but this is big American
they are still going to their buses have no
I will have you seen that people will drive they will say why did you and why they say Thomas because the idea is you're not supposed to cover their head. They feel that this is included
for the driving buses that don't have to explain what he's talking about is you physically covering your hair by putting on a cap or putting the top of your arm over your head and
sneaking in. Snake look up in the morning. I found it to be right. Again this is no fun. You move it you know there's no no tsunami because in spite of snakes if you do anything
we mentioned this already.
Already there, this is the, the has is one of the world that has Malika
that they talked about. Solomon said, Whoever goes and makes Hajj without, you know, doing any sinful acts or speaking in any sinful fashion, then
he returns This is done otherwise completely returns, like the day on which he was born, that is free from sin, like the day on which he was born.
But we thought that this has which is what they both have
been accepted by law, you know,
that the only reward for the Hajj mob rule is
not opposed to make that kind of hedge to get hired as a guarantee.
something worth fighting for.
But that there are signs, there are signs This lets us know to what degree or has accepted. One of the major signs we said was that the individual
his life changes,
he doesn't come back from doing the same thing he was doing beforehand.
If he returns to doing the same thing he was doing before Hydra Homer, this is one of the five let him know that his head was not accepted.
Because that accepted has is one in which one has has done the Hajj
sincerely after lots forgiveness, all the way through the head, this must have an effect on it. And action is not going to come back and they come back is back to doing all the things that didn't say that he was doing before. All
this is letting us know is why I say things.
A lot gives us a criterion to let us know what's the lie is acceptable to you. What's the lie is the lie which is desired. When he said that in the fraud.
That law prevents
fascia, which is, you know, evil speech.
Talking about filthy things.
And he will be you know, watching dirty movies
should not be touching
The law, a law says that
that's what the law is supposed to
find that we're making the law.
But yes, we continue to speak
and do evil actions. And this is letting us know that this a lot of we're performing is just a empty ritual.
Yeah, we've mentioned before about your purpose should not deliberately pluck out here or deliberately gear off his body. That doesn't mean you can scratch it, not to the extreme.
You shouldn't scratch
head like this.
So what is better, is better for you to scratch and the movements that need to be rubbing if you have to make the life
changing a fortune when you take your bath when you're unhappy. You know you shouldn't wash your hair because whilst washing here from here may fall.
Or you should come here because when you come here, these are extreme. These are extreme Islam doesn't require you to go to those places that you should not deliberately
pull hair out of your head or from your body. nor should you put your fingernails we mentioned this already amongst the things that they call the forbidden things when love is in the state of
and then the parliament
to the debate by
it is a physician which is held by a number of the scholars that the research is done is what they call
according to the Sunnah of the Prophet, that form of Hajj was only for those who brought the animals with them.
Well, as I said, you know, this is a position which is held by some of the scholars, scholars do this
as they call it
a combined without taking off,
there was no need to do that, because you could have taken up the arm after the ombre and you had to be in a complete without any question
he there was no necessity for you to
perform that form of of Hajj when you got the other tomato, which is the one was recommended.
So, if you read the Hadith, which describes
what he did was he told his companions
those of you who did not bring the animal with you,
after you make the unlucky copy,
and he said that if I had known
before, what I knew now, I would have done the same, but he bought the animal with him. So, once you got the animal with him, then that means he was making around, but the one that he recommended is to say that which is the best, obviously, the fact that he's recommended a gentleman by to do it is the
one who is going to do ombre
not really not really because I said this is still a position taken and you did it you know based on the information which was given to you and then it said
it would have been preferable if you take an animal with you and even more preferable was not was not able to take animals with us just doo
again, as we talked about before spoofing has become acceptable today, you know, because of the fact that this can be described literally according to the language as cooking. But what the intent was cooking be here as opposed to shaving and
you know, having a complete haircut, as a wrap or shaving. And again, in the case where you are doing it before
the heads been spent enough to shave because we will have some here
performing the study.
But it would have been better for you now if you teach other people or you're helping other people that you didn't know that they should put their
you know to be
there for the rest
thing is that the after you made the overall picture here is you put this properly now you have had no need to write
but because of the fact that wasn't kept properly, then there was need to comb it and there is no harm for me.
It was described as you know when you fill the forms where you get a fine tooth comb through their hair coming up. So you know this is deliberately going to do it and you shouldn't do But you get a large two fold. You call it easily
as you don't have to go back to my parents to finish the time of what they call
those 1112 when you're finished
in the middle,
back to Mecca, you know, after Sterling, for example, in the 11th and the 12th.
But it's not really the practice or the practice
was to spend that time.
But what is this the minimum requirement is to spend the night
at the minimum.
He said that if this was an angel,
he said he was an angel, he said he was among the among the difference between the two, right? Because he believes was a jinn but he was among the angels allow head
had raised his station, given him a position lock the position, because of certain knowledge and abilities which he had over the rest of the gym. And that had given him the right to be among the angels. He was among them in their group. This is why a lot of said yeah, he was telling the
Then I said,
he was also telling that he did not
Yeah, it was a Jim, you know, Jim has a choice between believing or not believing
was wet and refusing to obey God.
He became a Bajin
above to that point you would not imagine.
He was not an angel. It says right in the bank can imagine.
Crime says specifically that he was agent and he believed actually his explanation. He even said when Allah asked him, Why didn't you bow out? And he said, because he was made you made enough play and you made me off fire and we know the angels are made from light and said that angels are made from light and the jinn are made from smokeless fire. So fire not far as we know you light a match by to the gym.
But a elemental fire could be you know, a nuclear fire or whatever, you know, but a fire which is smokeless is not the fire that we know, in regular life. Some people may ask, how could they go to the fire the bad didn't sit there from fire? I was allowed to punch them with a Hellfire? Well, the point is that it's not a problem. Because you know, I you made some play, right? But I can take a piece of play that's been hiding and smashing, can you get that? So the fact that you are made from clay doesn't mean you can't be harmed by play that just means that you have your origin was your origin was claimed. But are you a piece of clay rocking around? No, no, that's your origin.
Similarly, the Jim's origin was fine, I mean, it is his fiery ball flying or a
mistake in concept.
But the belief was among was the gym was given certain
powers and certain abilities which allow meaning higher and greater than the rest of the gym.
This like among the angels, certain angels have given greater powers and the other angels like Jimmy Gabriel has given more powers and more responsibilities on the other. Similarly, he believes was given greater responsibility etc among the jinn and he was allowed to be among the angels so he was with the angels in the command was given his book and in Malacca, the job is to be added for search. So in that list, a lot of said crowds to the angel
Among them was a nice bow to Adam. And they all did except for
And this, you know, in terms of Islamic context, this is looked at as the original sin. If there is an original sin in Islam, it is the pride of a belief, because that's what led him to not bow.
You know, in talking with people that got rid of the original sin, you're important to clarify that for,
for non Muslims, Christians, etc. The idea that when we talk about in Christianity original sin in Islam, we have no original sin in the sense that you have a sin, which is an inherited generation after generation. We have no sin like that. But original meaning the first Yes, we have. The first thing that was that he believed when he refused about Adam, and his refusal was based on pride is what it's all about. Solomon said that anyone who has a mustard seeds worth of pride will not interfere that
pride over out of race, or out of country, or any of these types, these types of skyway few years superior to others. This destroys your Eman
because of the losses in the in the chromosome in the law, he's
the one who's most noble, in a lot of sites, is the one fears a lot.
Okay, is that clear? idea?
I don't want to get too philosophical on this right? The scope is clear. Because the again, you're telling me what you heard. And I can only judge what you're saying, I cannot judge what gelato being said, because I didn't hear, you know, you might have read something or you thought you were something you're related to the right thing based on what you're saying. I would say that Allah,
Allah commanded, it leads to bow to Adam and he refused to bow. So his refusal to both Adam was a disobedience to allow commands to vote as clear. Now the reason why he bowed, was not because he didn't believe in a law.
I mean, he believes in a lot more than you and I do in the sense that he was conscious of the law.
He knew that alive.
But the point is that his disobedience was based on pride.
this pride can cause somebody to go beyond what he knows to be true. And when he does that, then he enters into disbelief. Because you have for example, the case of
He knew that he was a prophet, he knew because he raised them, he knew the type of person he was. And he had confidence in you that he really was a prophet was Yes, when he was dying, when the problems are Selim came to him and said, you know,
accept a law, it is not about going to law.
and I will intercede for you with a lot of judgment.
He wanted to say that his other relatives,
cousins, brothers came to me to give up the belief of your forefathers, you know, are you saying that they are on the wrong path? Or are you going to stick to the belief in your profile.
And so, other is pride.
Pride in his
and his forefathers, he stayed in a state of disbelief and
says that he is.
I mean, he is not on the same level of the outside say, you know, some people who have done
major, but still, he's an alpha, he said the places he is
and the upper level
is such that the fire,
get to see.
But, in getting all these feet, it causes brains to boil.
Because he didn't know it is different from pride.
a desire to protect something which is yours.
Because you should have Riera relative to your religion.
It's like pride.
But pride as we normally know it,
we refer to it, we look at it in a negative sense, our pride is usually used.
Right? So if you want to say you can put it this way, that is the positive side of right.
Yes, not allowed but required.
You should have pride in your religion.
Proud to be a Muslim, you should be proud to be more submissive, this side is different from the other one will usually use the term drive. If he This means now, when you feel you're better than others, because of something which is intrinsic in you this is because you are you are your people, or your people or whatever you feel you're better than others. That's the pride which is despicable, which is a sin.
But the pride
for Islam, the sense that you're proud to be a Muslim, proud in the sense that, you know, when people are standing up talking about their religion, you don't quite do the same thing because you know, you're shy and this is not good. It's logical, you should stand up and say I'm a Muslim. And listen, believe in this.
You should have confidence, right? In the sense of having confidence.
Feeling the worth of
right, not wishing that thing that is in your possession to be destroyed or use.
You may have this feeling it needs to lead to honor. Honor.
We've only decided to move
the other countries.
Okay, there's a problem which can arise
under a number of different circumstances, you have two principles.
One, either you follow the principle where they thought about them and said that
whenever the moon decide to do fast, when I'm excited again.
In other words, whenever and wherever it's cited
in the world,
in the time now where we have communications where we can find out what's happening in Mecca and immediately the same day.
You can follow that principle as fast according to that, or you can fast according to deciding in your locality.
So you keep her wherever you are, you have to decide which principle you're going to follow the thing what you don't want to do is have some people doing run some people doing the other.
So you should decide, you know, either in your area, you have different islands or some countries close by that you're in constant contact with. You should then set up a network where on the 29th of Shaban, we expecting the sizing of the moon, if you ever decide that if
you call the other countries or you know the country, do your range amongst yourself that whenever you decide that you will contact each other one will call or whatever. So if nobody calls,
you probably said that inside of your website in your area, we assume that it's the 29th of shabaan and tomorrow is the 30th
you can either follow that principle or you will according to the sighting in your area, you're in the Philippines.
You have to decide one or the other. There is a better price in the Philippines and then if you
That's somebody outside and you got to have to be when apparently that wasn't seen that that, sorry that you should have seen it, but you didn't. And then it's going to mess up, it's going to become gonna be a mess. Right? You have to decide one way or another, both are valid.
So the community decides which way they're going to follow is would you always give the community you decide in one way,
just like, for example,
the same place on earth, where the distance to Mecca is the same as the east, from the west.
So which way do
the people in that area have to decide which way they want to do it and do it, but just you decide as a group, they don't have one method across one fitness to another one vision the other way, and you have that it's happened.
It does happen, especially in, in South America, we have a lot of people who are brought there from Indonesia,
and Indonesia, people face to the west.
right as you are in Philippines, they say to the west, now they were carried as workers by the Dutch, they brought them to South America.
Some of them said, because he said they were informed, they can see the culture.
In the West, as I said, we're now we're now much closer to the east. So we should be facing the east, then facing east, actually, doors are facing east in a correct way. Because, you know, anywhere on Earth, you can either go east away. So the principle is that whichever distance is closest to the Kaaba, that's the direction.
I mean, there's some people were gonna say,
Medina, you're facing,
you could ask for fake news,
because you had
to come back.
But the point is that you face
And when you reach a point where you're equidistant,
then you should
agree, if you will, the area should agree on one direction and the
and as you said, before, that you're proud of you in terms of fishing, this is the general direction.
You don't have to have the exact compass, you know, directions.
If you're making a Masjid, and you have a conference, and you can make some calculations, fine. But you don't need to go around to the other matches that were built 50 years ago, and say, Well, look, you know, you're off by three degrees. Right, you must now change your message to confirm with our message. No, we don't have to do this. Because 50 years from now, somebody else will come with a more accurate 10 years and say, Look, your five years, your two degrees, now you must change.
This is not a requirement. Because as we said before, when you're talking about 1000s and 1000s of miles.
If we are off
by point 00000000001 degree with Mr. Comma by a mile.
Because over the distance, that small section that you're off here becomes a huge difference.
So we're not required to face the Kaaba Exactly. Because we are not capable of calculating it exactly.
So when you decide to do with the first, the general direction of the cabinet, and the only time you're required to finish the job exactly, is when you're there in Mecca, you see the combination of selfies,
you're not allowed to pray in any other direction you must read.
Otherwise, as it turns out, someone said to his companions, he said my band and worship he will never be
what is between East and West, it
is the direction
needs to be thought about direction you're facing.
the only time when you look at different principles and practices, if you see something that is creating confusion amongst within you must try to find out what is the root of this thing, find out where the flexibility lies, because there is certain you know acceptable and allowable differences which any community must recognize otherwise it will be at war with itself.
You must know those areas so that it can be flexibility and people can work together and the areas where there is no flexibility then you must know love and be able to clarify for the people that the other ones
because some people may be playing longer to Allah. Some people may be praying to some
These are different ways.
Right? And when you ask the person spent about one second and he says I'm praying to Allah,
we are to Brisbane to the city champion to the saints were prayed to us
When not from
end to end, but especially to the left.
I certainly think, but the only acceptable ways medically, is to play directly.
So you have to know the difference of these other ways and unacceptable.
The political level is a bigger shadow
