Aleem Bishop could be somebody way acidity, Emily could attend Mila Sonia Gabor Kohli, my brothers and my sisters Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. I hope everyone is doing well in sha Allah to add up today is the 25th of October 2020. And we are going to continue on with our class essential thick. In fact, today what we're going to do is we're going to conclude the chapter on hedge. Okay, we'll include the chapter on hedge
by looking at the virtues of hedge an arm Well, actually not looking at the virtues the hydrometer we're gonna be looking at the virtues of visiting the city of Medina termina WA, k blesseds city of Medina, a little moonwalk when you lay your hand
now whenever we go for Hajj or anyone goes for you know from from the etiquette of visiting Medina is to go and visit mustard and neverwet right so when you go visit Medina you usually go visit mustard in February as well.
But before we get into that, you know a lot of the time people think that aroma itself must have a visit to Medina and Hajj will not be complete until there's a visit to Medina that's made and in fact that's not the reality. The reality is that it is not compulsory to go for Hajj Sorry, go visit Medina during your hedge or during your trip. Okay. So we're going to look at that in a lot of data. But before we do let's look at some of the virtue some of the blessings of the city of Medina to want
to start with debited in some of the Alomar I narrated that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Verily Alon named Medina Baba, meaning the good pure city right so good and pure Baba. He says barely Alon named Medina, Baba, okay, so the city of Medina to Manoa in fact before we even get into that, for those who don't know Arabic, they might find it a little bit hard or difficult to understand why Medina is called something else. Most of us who speak English, just call it Medina. Okay, the city of Medina. But in fact, it's not Medina, it's Medina to the MANOVA. Okay, or baba or by Eva, and there are many other names that we can use for the blessing See,
Medina in Arabic actually means city. So when we say Allah Madina, munawwara we say the enlightened city or the illustrious city, okay, so we're actually referring to the city as being blessed. Okay, so Medina to munawwara. The city of Newark, okay, so Medina means city. So when we say go to the city of Medina, we're actually saying I'm going to the city of Medina.
Yes, yeah, that is what we mean. We're going to the city of Medina means we're going to the city, the city for it to translate literally Okay. Now of course we know that Medina means
is the name of the of the we call it on so forth.
But really, it's the enlightened city Medina omoto water okay.
Or Medina, Baba or Medina by Eva. Okay, the good pure city. But what about the long run heard? The Messenger of Allah long rather he was send them say, Medina is like a bellows, which eliminates impurities. You know,
I don't have one in my office because I'm not a blacksmith. But you know, that thing that you use to blow air on fire, for example, or on iron, or if you're trying to make a fire, and you have the old school fireplace in there.
Right, you squeeze that thing and it blows air out. And it basically gets the ashes off of the wood that's burning, and then you have good
coal that's burning there, and it burns even stronger and brighter and harder. You also notice that it can be used for removing the impurities as you heat up the iron. There's impurities that come off of it and that you know, sort of comes off I don't know if I'm talking about but my name is David Wood and prophet down with them. It was a steel iron worker, and my dad is a welder. So I know a lot about steel and iron and welding and stuff like that. So I don't know it's just a thing. So most of you probably have no idea what I'm talking about. But the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said Medina is like a bellows which eliminates impurities. The hour will not occur until Medina banishes its evil
ones like a bellows eliminates the impurities of iron. Okay.
So one of the signs
At the end of time is that Medina Tijuana what I will actually reject or those who are not pure and sincere in their belief will leave and run and flee the blessing city of Medina and mana wa what are the virtues of its mosque mustard and never we
And should we be praying in mustard the number we more than we pray and other mustard seeds? Is there a better amount of blessing in that mustard? Or you know what do we what do we know from this city?
well above what I thought it'd be a long one narrates from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam do not undertake a journey except to three mosques. And I think I've taught you this before, right? That's a should the rehab, Elizabeth LSAT in Lolita tema sajida. So the Prophet song It was send them said, you shouldn't embark upon a dirty now what is meant here you have to look into the explanation of the Hadeeth what is meant is you cannot embark upon a journey for the purpose of very bad, okay, so you don't go intentionally to pray in a specific mosque or intentionally to perform some sort of pilgrimage other to the places that Allah subhana wa, is permitted. What that means is
you are permitted to go on vacation, you're allowed to go sightseeing, you're allowed to go touring, you're allowed to go to many different places. It shouldn't be your sole purpose and intention to go to this place for the sake of let's say praying in that mosque and then coming back. Okay, why? Because a loss of data gives importance to these three places, and we should not
grant a different status to other places and trying to elevate them and bring them into a more important level within the deen. So everybody about the law narrates from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam do not undertake a journey for religious purposes, except to three mosques. The mosque of mine must God has right which is referring to the mosque of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Masjid and
secondly, the masjid al Haram. Okay, I must do that how wrong which is in Mecca, the mustard built around the Kaaba. And thirdly, the benefits of long learning this enum says and must do the exercise. So once again do not undertake a journey
except to three mosques, the mosque of mine, the mustard
which is in Jerusalem.
He also narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Who is He Who narrated this? Let's see who's paying attention? Who narrated these Heidi?
Who narrated these heavies very quickly, you type it in there take any guests while guests Don't worry, just typing in the chat. I want to see who's paying attention and who isn't.
yellow, yellow, yellow, no one's paying attention. Oh, what I will do, okay, I'll do a lot more. He also narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,
a prayer in this mosque
a prayer in this mosque of mine is better than 1000 prayers in another mosque or in other mosques. Except for must do that how long?
So the reward or benefit of praying and mustard UI is that your prayer there is multiplied by 1000 times. Okay? A prayer in this mosque of mine is better than 1000 prayers in another mosque.
Except for most of them, how long in Mecca and the reward for that we'll see shortly inshallah hota blood is a narrative that the Messenger of Allah sent along it he was send them said, What is between my house and my pulpit, or member is a garden from the gardens of Paradise now being a bat woman Betty robot to Maria vagenda. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is indicating that this area that the masjid is built in and remember must be the number we originally started from the house of put some level or either us sanlam which also in front of his house is the house of Attica of the alarm and I wish I had two cubes to show you what I'm talking about. Do I have blocks don't
have anything that I could use
to do okay.
So, you have the original must have the Navy. Okay, the original must have the Navy, which is not where the new one is. So when you're coming in to say send out the profits, and a lot more
Send them now the mustard extended further in the front. So the Qibla is this way, right, and you would enter through Bab SNM. And you would go through to the other side, right here where the Greek of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is situated, which is inside of the house of ash out of the law. So right here, you would have the house at a shop or the lover and her. And right behind it, you would have the house of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, some people like we need his house, but his house was the house of atisha every single one of the ways of the Prophet sallallahu and even someone that had their own house and the prophets all along where it was send them had a house
for him. Right?
For those of you living in Canada, who just spent a million dollars on a house, well, if you want a house of your own, you're gonna have to dish out another million dollars. Right. So I showed up to her had her house here, right. And the profits that I knew of some of this house was connected to it. So that wall, right this wall
was a wall between the house of the province and along with the sentiment of the both of them shared the wall with the masjid. So the masjid now goes from here to the member of the prophets and it will send them so he says my BBT remember what is between my house and my member is a garden from the gardens of paradox, and I will tune in every other agenda. Okay?
And that's why people when they go to Medina to when they want to pray in the robot, they want to pray in this blessed place, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam called the garden of paradise. Okay, so what are the etiquettes of visiting mustard
and the grave of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam which is found built the mustard is found built around the grave of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam so when you look at the extensions that were made, the extensions were actually made, you know, branching around the grave or the houses of the prophets and along there I think it was Sunday and they are not within the masjid we do not say that the grave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam is inside of mustard the number we we say the mustard the nipple is built around the grave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
and there's a reason for that. The reason is that the massages Allah subhana wa tada says, Well, no messaggi delila he fell outside the room. He had that the massage it belonged to Allah subhana wa tada and we are not to worship anyone inside of those massages, except Allah subhana wa Tada. Now, in order to keep the mustard pure, and sacred for the sake of worshiping only a law, it is not encouraged them to put graves inside of massage it to have massage with graves in the grave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, like we said is, if we look at it from an aerial view, we'll say yeah, it's within it, but it's actually the mustard was built around the grave of the Prophet
sallallahu alayhi wasallam in order to protect it kind of like a fort or fortress built around it to protect the grave of the profits and I need a sentence and no one to dig through, or go and try and harm or, you know, dig up or do anything that they shouldn't be doing to the grave of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Now, I can talk about Medina's MANOVA all day long, okay. And that's because I lived there for seven and a half years studying Medina and spent a lot of time in mustard and never we would go sit in the front row, first row, second row, third row of mustard and double usually for selected I said I would be there or for Sutton motive almost every single day. And you know, we'd spend time looking around and understanding and analyzing and trying to, you know, realize where things were inside mustard and then we will save that for the time that we go for hygiene together in sha Allah. Okay, usually, we have a lot more time to sit and discuss and explain certain things. Of course, now, you
know, anyone who's going to muster the Navy, you have certain
permits that you need to acquire in order to go into the Oda. So it's basically like booking time, right scheduling a time to go and sit and pray in that folder, which is actually nice, because then everyone gets time. He is very calmly and I think this is probably the first time that anyone goes to the VA and enjoys themselves in terms of being at complete and full, know ease and calm and and comfort.
Now, from the etiquettes of visiting mustard and we we see that the virtues that are particular to the mustard of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
and most of them how long and mustard the saw and the superiority of the prayers of those mustard is elevated. But generally visiting any Masjid The rules are pretty much the same, but there are certain things that are related to the Prophet's mosque specifically because it is built
Around the grave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so there's no real specific
etiquette for visiting the mosque itself that is different than any other Masjid. Okay, except for the fact that the grave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is found bordered off within that area.
Now first of all we look at when a person enters the mosque, so when a person person enters any Masjid, including the mustard of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam, he should enter with his right foot or she should enter with her right foot. And of course, there's a number of different variations of door that we can say. One of them is just me that was sent in or I'd absolutely love a lot more fiddly. Along Philly, the movie was actually abueva hermetic or Milan salatu salam or annatto su de la Allahumma salli Ababa romatic. So in the name of Allah and peace, be upon the Messenger of Allah, Allah forgive my sins and open for me the doors of your mercy, or someone can
say, Ruby that allows him will be what he came also upon to khadim mina shape on a regime I seek refuge and a lot of the great end in his noble face and his ancient rule from the cursed Satan.
The second thing that we do or from the etiquettes of visiting Masjid nabawi then a person should pray to what I have, you had to massage it before sitting down or before getting comfortable within the masjid. Now, of course this is a typical thing that we do when going to any Masjid except muster the power on so when we go to muster out on the tip of the mustard pharmaceutical How long is making a walk around the counter, okay, so make up around the carrabba seven times that is the to hire to the masjid which basically means the welcoming of the monster so the masjid welcoming us we do something there, okay.
We make often mustard. But every other Masjid, we pray to Africa, to here to muster before sitting down in the mustard and getting comfortable there. Thirdly, from the etiquettes of visiting mustard than a person must be careful to avoid facing the direction of the noble Grave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam while praying or facing it in supplication, so we do not face the grave of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam when we're praying, nor does a person face it when they're making grace. So, some people will come into mustard normally and have the grave of the prophet SAW it was something to their left, it is not permitted to turn to the left and pray in the direction of
the grave, or you know, turn to an angle based on wherever we are within the masjid. And it is not permissible to actually go and stand for the grave and to make dua asking, you know, in the direction of the grave, we are, what we find in the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is, you know, we can face any direction when making from the etiquettes of making to our eyes that you actually face the content. So turning towards the kudla is something that is encouraged when, you know, making door out to a lots of panels. Okay?
Now, you might say, Well, yeah, Deadwood, that's obvious, but I actually lived in Medina for a number of years. And I've seen people not only face the grave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam to do some really strange things, but I've seen people go out to eat and turn in the direction of the graves of people that are buried in the cemetery and actually pray towards those graves from outside the gates of the cemetery outside the fence. So I know a lot of you might say, Yeah, no, that's obvious. We know this stuff. You don't need to tell us but you know what, there's people who do some really strange things. And there might be 99 people who are watching because 99
of the people who are watching me know this already, but there might be that 1% of people that say I never knew that and now they do. And so we have a responsibility to teach each other the Dean of a lot of panel what's had Okay.
What else have I seen I seen people go up on the roof of mustard, the Navy so when I was on the roof of mustard that we'd like you can actually go up there it's not like they took a ladder and climbed up there anything No. So people will go up onto the roof of mustard and Louis, especially in the winter season they used to open it up. And you know, you go up there and the air is nice and cool and it was beautiful in the daytime with the sun shining down on you. It's nice and warm and beautiful with the cool breeze. And I used to see some people turn in the direction of the green dome so they would look for the green dome and they know that underneath the green dome
is the of the grave offense on the USL. So
I seen people standing there on an angle standing there and actually listening to what they're saying. And they're calling upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam asking him to bless them with certain things or using him as an intercessor or
Assuming that they are, but they're not right. So they are actually committing shift from the roof of us to the number one, I've seen this and I've heard it with my own eyes, I actually approached people multiple times and tried to stop them and tell them this is wrong, what you're doing wrong. Can't do it, right. And it's not like we're how I'm police. But it's a responsibility that we always felt as students there that, you know, if we learn something, and we see people coming and doing things, remember people only cut, most people will only make one trip to Mecca and Medina in their whole life. Okay, I would probably say that the average Muslim will probably only make one trip
there in their entire life.
Now, when we don't do something regularly, we don't really know what we're supposed to do. And we're not supposed to do so for example, you've never driven a car before, all of a sudden, your parents allow you, too, take the car keys out and drive. You're like, I don't know what to do. So you're probably gonna do some things, right? And you might do some things wrong as well. Okay.
And that goes for anything. Like if it says, I want you to come up here and teach my class today, right? And ask you to come and teach a class, like, Wait a second, I can't. Too bad here. You got it. It's all yours. All right, take care. Bye.
How would you be able to teach the class right? You'd be like, I don't know what to do. I don't know what to say, I don't know. And I never done this before. And, look, I don't know how to turn on this and that and activate certain things I don't know how to type into, you know, there's so many things that we don't know. So when a person goes to Mecca, Medina, a lot of the time people don't know what to do, and because they love the Prophet sallallahu I think he was on them so much, and they've read about him, and they've heard about him and they've, you know, tried to tried to replicate certain things that he's done in his life and in our lives. You know, we have so much love for the prophets
all along. A lot of the time, people are blinded by that love, and they don't know what they're supposed to do, and they get there so they do anything that tells them
and we're not supposed to do that. We're supposed to know what we're doing. Right? almost kind of we'd have an unfair victory. coolatta Adam would ask people of knowledge when you don't know. If you don't know something, go and find out ask educate yourself first and then go and do that right or don't do it if you're not supposed to do it. So it's important for us to educate ourselves with regards to the deen before we go and do certain things. So if you're going for as you're going for, educate yourselves. So I've seen people do these things and this is why we're going over it. Number four,
from the etiquettes, of visiting mustard Nebu, ie
a person should then after you know praying their tool that they can go and visit the grave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam selling them now this arrived in Medina go to the masjid they pray there to proceed towards giving
them to the Mr. Ali
he was Salah a person should avoid
putting their hand on their chest you know when
they're bowing down right? Those are things that we don't do right we do that only for a while we only back out to a loss of material we become humble yes by doing the wanted us to do which ties in with the next point right the next point number five is not raise our voice in front of the grave of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the area of his mustard in his home. We keep our voice low quiet soft right this is the way we talk around the profits in the long run. Whether he is alive or after he's passed away. So we lowered our tone a little bit we speak nicely and quietly what I've seen happening is people going into give setup and they're walking in like oh that's the grave of
the prophet SAW Selim. Check it out they take out the phone or like somewhere
yo check it out a little harness on them and then like on Skype or family or WhatsApp calls and you know some kind of lunch just like what's going on and then you find other people that get there and they're just like they don't even like they just keep coming bleeder tells them you got to go every time you go to the mustard go and Gibson I'm going to give them so they're walking through in the talking about KFC they talk about McDonald's and talk about all these different restaurants that want to go eat at because it's helpful for them over there. They're just like hey, you know what, let's go do this is to the Hi there laughing and joking in front of the grief of the Prophet
and this is why something did not encourage that we go do certain things very often. For example, the people of MK they lose the
become close to the problem. They live close to the cabin. And
you know it loses that chirality. Right that extra level of honor of going to the house of a loss of Hannah without
place that was
a loss of hanaway data. It's not his home.
People who live in and around the area
bring us back. Right? You probably saw my posts, I don't know a few times in the last few months, every now and then I just post about the how I'm in Macau media and it just yeah, I'll bring this back. Yeah, a lot of us to come visit your house, we wish to go. Because we don't get to go as
often as the people who live there
to something, especially when it's a holiday.
Who's that? You know, sense of respect, like, okay, yeah, we're just walking through a big deal, right? Yeah, they're great. They're right. And so we have to understand
we're supposed to be in that area in that space and make sure that we're not in violation of anything
related to it.
Now, when a person stands before the grave of the person along the center, on the profit side,
we also can use the green
stop creating a
course right next to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is about karate alone, and an aroma
of the alarm.
etiquette number five, like I mentioned, is that a person should have a tone that is lowered, right? We're not to raise our voice around the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, or in the mustard of the profits, and along with us alum.
Number six, a person should try to pray in the first two rows of the congregation. And what do we mean? Sorry, not the first two rows. The first row is I don't know why I said to right, should we should try to pray in the front rows of the masjid as as, as far front as we can. Right? Try to get as close to the front of the masjid as you can when you're praying the congregational prayers. Why do we do this? Well, because there's a great reward for being closer to the front or being in the front row.
Low Yeah, and openness to profits and a lot of ideas send them said if people knew nothing needed, what is in the the importance of coming early to the mustard when the call to prayer is being made, or before the call to prayer is being made?
will suffer Award and the first row right front row,
Mama Willow have won the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says we would come to those to, you know, come to the mustard early and try to be in the front row. Even if we had to crawl to the masjid. Even if we had to crawl to the masjid. So the prophet SAW Allah is showing us there, the importance of being early, and the importance of trying to make it into the front, the reward is greater for being in the front rows, as opposed to being in the rows.
And when we talk about the mustard,
it was the reason why our teachers always try to get in the front rows, don't try to get into the old. Right. And that's the next point. Next point is the person, you know, desire to try and pray in which to play between the house of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam of the longer it was on the live, he said, it is a garden from the gardens of Paradise. However, there is no special merit or no special reward
with regards to praying in that area.
That we Okay, there's nothing that has been mentioned like your prayer. Is there something of that sort? No, it's basically indicating that this is a sacred space.
And it's blessed. And we should try our be in that area. Why first of all that original space of mustard. That's where it's habitable, more often than free did. He walked back and forth all them for every of every one of the prayers from his house to the house to the men but that's a place to send them frequented the most frequented area
probably on earth by the prophets and alongside of us ended up right between his house in the house and a member going to pray prayers right and to drivel.
So there's there's also the, you know, an importance to that area. However, sometimes people will stay back to try and pray in the roba when the front rows are empty. And remember, I used to see this all the time every single day. We try to get to the front either for us or for most of it.
We'd come early and go to the front end, the front rows
of the mustard would be
especially if you come like an hour and a half before us.
Right or if you stay after till awesome. No one's and you could sit there pick up your most houses when no one's gonna bother you.
When it's time for slough, you're already seated there. Well, you are now praying in the front row.
But everyone is behind you fighting with each other to try and pray
when the reward for praying in the front rows is greater than seeing the rows behind you. So that's a mistake that people make and we used to see it and be like, if only they knew, right.
So some have a lot try to make it to the front rows. Try to pray in that older try to make the
old try to get there. I mean, do I call? How do we turn it for forgiveness? But remember the front Rosa said rose to pray in
during the congregational prayer.
Okay, number eight of the prophets on a long ride to pray for deacons prayers in the mosque. So, yes, some people will say but I think there's a heady, okay, there is a Hadees that is weak and not authentic.
And that practice is based on that Heidi, that states whoever prays 40 prayers in my MOS without missing prayer will have for him freedom from the fire, rescue from the punishment and freedom from hypocrisy. But it is not an authentic hadith. And it is a week it
is inserted when it comes to things like make sure that we understand that we are not supposed to be missing prayers.
And one thing that I did in
the years that I lived there is we'll be very comfortable to miss prayers.
miss them without feeling any sadness.
But when they come to Medina, they're like, well, we have to do this. We have to because he days, I'm going to be saved from Jonathan, I'm going to paradise. Right? By 40 consecutive years. That's a big thing, right? So it's not even 40 days, just a few days. I need to be in Medina for these days. So that you know you can make those. It's not that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam encouraged to do
and it was not a common man or general practice of this habit of the home is not something that we're encouraged to do remember, some people will also and this is a point that I wanted to bring up later, but some people will also
try to stay in MK for a shorter period of time during their trip. Let's say their trip is three weeks long. They'll try to stay in Mecca for just like four days and then spend the rest of the day in Medina because they're trying to get 40 consecutive prayers
don't we know that England must have they'll have all it is is much greater have been praying and must have never we? We do. We mentioned that we'll come to it right. So remember, actually better for us to be in Macau than it is for us to Medina. It's more rewarding to be in Makkah than it is for us to be in Medina number is not sanctioned to continually go back and visit some a lot more it was sent to them and to greet him. Right if a person wants to greet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or send peace and blessings upon the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, you do not need to go to the great faith wherever you are in the process and along I do have some actually said this.
wherever you are, wherever you are on Earth, you could be in Milton, Mississauga, you could be in Toronto, you could be in Canada, along with Mohammed Ali Muhammad
Ali Ibrahim Amina Majeed are both Muslims.
And is done it's sent to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his son in law or LA. He was seldom when you were hammered some law or LA he was Salaam,
your the name you say
La, la even airplane, fly over there and walk all the way up to most of them we get in front of the grave and be like, you know what, on October 25 in the middle class
I heard down the mud. And so here I am today he was
So you know, Pamela, you can send peace and blessings upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wherever we are and it reaches him. Okay, so you do not need to go and stand or tried to visit the grave every single
One of the prayers now, someone says is my only chance, the only time that I'm ever here, I want to try and go maybe once a day or something fine, right? Fine. There's no like restriction on that. However, what we do need to understand is, if a person does go, that's fine as well. Send Peace and blessings upon the profits in the long run is more and more, more and more wherever we are, you know, some of our teachers up until today, whenever you see them, meet with them, talk to them sit with them, they're constantly, suddenly Island, some new island, right? Suddenly identity is constantly reminding each other send peace and blessings upon the prophets all along. It was
From the etiquettes of visiting mustard, and when the person leaves the masjid, he should not leave by walking backwards.
I see some people doing this even in our must over here. When we finish the prayer, they walk out going backwards until they've passed all the rows where people are praying and then they'll turn and walk the other way they will turn their back towards the Qibla now is that from the Sunnah of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam No, it isn't. Are we allowed to walk backwards we're not supposed to. That's not something that was done right? This is something new, that's that's added or innovation.
Innovation within our team. So don't leave walking backwards instead of person leaves the masjid exiting with the left foot. So step forward with your left foot to exit the mustard and a lot near silicon in public or Bismillah. So there were a lot of Sunni law a lot of affiliates Ruby was definitely a word of public okay in the name of a law and peace upon be upon the Messenger of Allah. Allah forgive me of my sins and open for me the doors of you
know, few other things and we'll go through this fairly quickly in Charlottetown.
When visiting Masjid, when visiting Medina to manohara sometimes people will end up visiting Masjid Koba, okay Masjid Koba,
and it is from the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to visit mustard Cova especially if you're in the city. So if you're visiting Medina, then you're going to visit must the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he himself used to go on Saturday morning after sellouts and photo he used to go to a Masjid Koba, why it is the very first Masjid that was built in Islam and we say during the time of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as in a community Masjid, that was built especially on the hedgerow of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. That is it. No. Does that mean that is a very fertile? Yes, it was established for prayer? No, of course not. They used to pray in Mecca
and they used to pray in front of the Kaaba but the actual building of a structure or a place to pray known as a Masjid, the very first one was Masjid that was built. We know a Baba Baba and had made placed within his home when
when the boycott was taking place, a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Muslims are going through a very difficult time and abubaker the loved one, you know, he was facing some some challenges. In fact, I think it was just before that. He built a or he didn't build anything, but he reserved an area within his home, that he considered it to be a Masjid and he couldn't leave and he considered that a mustard and so he would stand there and he would recite loudly recital and loudly within his home. So he wasn't allowed to recite outside loudly but within his own he would do that okay.
So it is from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to visit Masjid Koba. And as we mentioned, he would visit it on Saturdays, and he would actually go there walking, so he would walk from his home right by mustard. neverwet all the way to mystical about or sometimes he would ride his animal.
So he would visit it on Saturday mornings, he would pray to it. There, okay. Also, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said whoever purifies himself or herself in his home is in the loo at home
or wherever they're staying within Medina. So if you're staying in a hotel that's considered your home that's your temporary home within Medina, okay. So whoever finds himself in his house and then goes to mustard Koba and
prays a prayer they're in right praise to NACA within Muskoka
will have for him, the like, will have for him or her like the reward of a neuroma. So they will get the reward of an aroma, right? That doesn't mean that they get the reward of having performed
as in the, you know, this person went from No, but you will get the rewards that a person would typically get had they gone for. Okay, which is a bummer.
into large amount of reward. So that is really what is meant by this Hadeeth here, okay.
Now what about visiting the book here? Okay, what about visiting the book here, which is the cemetery right next to mustard and now we are getting that and also mount or hood. Okay so we have Mount Hood, which is right next to
basically you know when you come out of the airport to land in Medina and you come to the airport and you look in front of you that's, that's mount or hood right there. But that's the end of Mount Hood. So all the way to the other end is where the battle took place. Okay, so the book there, we'll start with that that says the Muslim Cemetery in Medina, many of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam are buried there, as well the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, is a mountain which loves us, and we love it. So it is a mountain that loves us, and we love it. Okay. So getting back to the, to the cemetery, if someone comes to Medina and wishes to visit the
bugbear or the cemetery at Mount Hood, then there is no prohibition on this it is something that's permitted to do why because the Prophet sallallahu it was sent him in the initial years for be visiting the graves, okay. But in the later years, Allah allowed him to make it permissible for everyone to go into visit the graves and to be reminded of the hereafter reminder that short span of time that we would live in this life, also to remind us of the importance of committing to a loss of habitat, and where we are going our direction in life. And it's a lesson to remind us of what happened to the people of the past, okay, their hardships, their struggles, or maybe even the
punishments that came to certain people not talking about at the booth or at home, but other cemeteries, you know, or other places on earth where the punishment of Allah subhana wa tada came, you know, reminds us of that and we submit to Allah subhana wa tada Okay.
Um, there are other places that a person can visit within the city of Medina to Manoa and it is permissible to go and visit them but there's no specific need to go and do that. So if a person goes to Medina and does not go to certain places, that's fine as well, from the places that a person might visit when they're there and Medina is set out on the tagit Okay, the seven mosques which is close to the area that the Battle of 100 took place, okay. Usually the bus just drives down you'll see that some buses from some countries you know, some people give huge importance to certain things and they'll stop there and they'll climb up and go into some massages and prayer and stuff like
that. If people want to go there and learn about it, that's perfectly fine. You can go and learn about the area so you can go and visit that area and learn about it. The other places mustard could attain that people go to which in fact is mustard Sonoma. And we'll talk about that when we go there. For hygiene Ramadan inshallah very very soon inshallah Tanis they amin type me and let it be known and recorded in writing. Also most of them have
around the area of mustard and every like mustard, double bucket and mustard aroma and mustard atisha and you can go and visit these places as well.
Now the visitors should not think that he's getting some sort of special blessing or she's getting blessed in a certain way by going and visiting all these extra places. There are wells within the city of Medina like the well versed metal the lung and
and all these you know places that we go in history, there's no specific reward for going visiting them but it allows us to understand and to learn more about the history of the Muslims at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam two important points that we will end with inshallah Tada, the last two things that we will take Okay, the last two things are, number one, many pilgrims seek to spend more days in Medina, like I mentioned earlier, so a lot of people will seek to spend more time in Medina, as opposed to spending more time in Mecca. When in fact a prayer in must in the home is worth how much
it's worth 100,000 prayers, praying and most of them how long is worth 100,000 prayers. Okay, and praying and mustard and w is worth how much
1000 prayers. Okay, so what is better? 100,000 or 1000? Okay, we know praying any other mustard praying in our mustard over here. The reward for praying that prayer in congregation is multiplied by 27 times. Right? And that's because a prayer that's prayed in any Masjid, right even in musty the Navy or in how long is multiplied in congregation of a preeminent congregational prayer by 27 times
Another word for praying in the masjid general is multiplied by 1000 times mustard in the Navy and 100,000 times for mustard that how long
you do the math which one is better? Right? So a lot of the time people spend their time in Medina not realizing they could be getting or they're missing out on a lot more rewards had they stayed in Macau or spent more time in Mecca.
The second and last points that we'll take in Montana. Many of the pilgrims or Muslims believe that visiting the masjid of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Medina is one of the rites of Hajj and that is not true. Your Hajj is accepted without even going to Medina. And yes, some people will say,
quote, a number of fabricated IDs IDs that are not true. Like whoever makes HUD and does not visit to me has dishonored me. That is not true. Okay. It is not compulsory for someone to go to Medina after they've finished their hedge or finished. So if someone flies into Jeddah goes into their hedge and goes back to Jeddah and fly out and never even sets foot in Medina, they're hedging their Amara is, you know, not invalidated. Okay? I can't say that it's correct or accepted because only Allah knows if it's accepted or not. Right. But if they follow through with all of the principles and it would be correct, and you do not need to go to Medina, okay, there's no absolute need to go
to Madina munawwara
That's it for today. In short, a lot of data that brings us to the end of the chapter on hedge. And from next week, we will begin chapter the next chapter, which is marriage hamdulillah Here we go. And in fact, there's over No, just about 100 pages in this chapter. So we're gonna be talking about marriage. You know, a lot of things to do with marriage, we're obviously going to talk about marriage and divorce and how to choose a spouse and how to you know, the rights of the husband and the rights of the wife and so on and so forth. So please do join us and share this with others and let them know that inshallah dad and next week we start a new chapter on marriage, and we're going
to be going through a lot of things dealing with marriage. Okay. A lot of data does that come a little later on about a FICO model or send them all out and have you know,
