mean was Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Karim Wiener and he was hobby for many standard embassy in Nigeria I only been outraged due to a lot of a lot of Peace and blessings on his last prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and and all those who follow the path of righteousness until the last day.

00:00:23--> 00:00:23

Hajj

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

should be looked at within the context

00:00:30--> 00:00:32

of Islam as a whole.

00:00:34--> 00:00:37

Though I've been asked to speak about hedge,

00:00:39--> 00:00:44

and many if not most of you are contemplating making hedge.

00:00:46--> 00:00:53

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

That he has,

00:02:02--> 00:02:04

that we can fulfill for him.

00:02:08--> 00:02:16

When Allah has prescribed for us, these fillers is prescribed them for us out of a need which we have for the spirit.

00:02:18--> 00:02:28

So this is why it is fundamentally important to understand Hajj within the context of the pillars of Islam, and the goal. The fundamental goals of these pillars

00:02:30--> 00:02:34

and prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:02:36--> 00:02:39
