My dear respected elders, brothers, mothers and sisters and friends.

00:00:58 --> 00:01:04

We begin today's presentation by praising Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:01:05 --> 00:01:27

and sending salutations upon our beloved maybe a Kareem sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Subhan Allah he will be handy here I did a follow up what is enough see he was in at our See he when we did a kinematic Glory be to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allahumma Salli was selling were very kerosene and now whenever we are now Milena Muhammad

00:01:35 --> 00:02:08

My dear respected elders, brothers mothers and sisters is indeed a great honor to be able to present this small presentation on the spiritual preparedness for the unique journey of Hajj. Now, normally, there would be many people who would be joining and preparing for Hajj and there will be many who are also just be listening in. They will be having a yearning for Hajj, they might not be for whatever reason they might not be part of the quota.

00:02:09 --> 00:02:56

So we'll get perhaps not been able to bring them into the quota this year but they have a yearning, some do not have the means but they feel inshallah one day we will go for those such people I would just want to make one small, you know very important request. It continues the yearning Allah al Azim if you have that yet, in one day, Allah subhanho wa Taala will make it a reality. Maybe a Kareem sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on one occasion was going out in jihad. And he said and he told us how Sahaba mas selectadna Why do First Gen. Oh come on Colin Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that there is not a mountain or valley that you cross. But there are people in Medina who are with

00:02:56 --> 00:02:56

you.

00:02:57 --> 00:03:44

In the reward that you are accumulating, having several other that a valid excuse and reason resulted in them not coming with you. Otherwise they wanted to join you. So even if you have the yearning and you can because of a certain reason, Join the journey and join the Hajj. That yearning inshallah Allah subhanho wa Taala will grant you the reward of Hajj. That's the first aspect that I would like to make mention of for those who are on this presentation listening in, but they might not be going this year, but they have a yearning that very soon we will go continue with the URI inshallah Allah makes it a reality very soon for you. Secondly, we are all aware that how do we how

00:03:44 --> 00:04:06

do we go for Hajj? Right The first thing is we are known and as the primary salat wa salam built the Kaaba and I will come to the DUA he recited after constructing the Kaaba in the bakery line I will deduce from the very important lesson. However, let me start off by saying that when Ibrahim Alayhi Salatu was Salam

00:04:07 --> 00:04:11

completed the Kaaba and the construction. He said

00:04:12 --> 00:04:14

he he said that

00:04:16 --> 00:05:00

Allah Tala told him call the people towards Hajj Hey yah, another Hajj, come towards Hajj, something might have said call people towards Adam. But before he said that, he said Yeah, Allah is no one who is here. Who is going to listen to me you are telling me I must call people for what thing is no one who is here who is going to hear my call. And a letter I say the family Oh my family. Oh my beloved. It is for you to give the call it is for me to see that call reaches out to every human being every soul who's who ever sees the bake. They will come to the Haram and they will come for the cover and they will come for lunch. Even Emily salat wa salam called out every human being the soul of every

00:05:00 --> 00:05:01

Human being herded.

00:05:02 --> 00:05:26

And those who are fortunate their whom whom Allah Tala had said that they will celebrate, they will come to the calling of Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam. So, the prime minister that was salam gave the calling and whosoever said Let bake, he will go for lunch. And as a as I made mention yesterday in a talk and I will repeat it, no one goes

00:05:27 --> 00:05:54

because he has got the wealth or no one goes because he is wealthy and he's got the amount of wealth that will take him no one goes because they have been accredited by the hutch regulator in the area. No one goes because in the new system in many countries, they have logged on to the nusach app and they have been accepted.

00:05:55 --> 00:06:07

No one goes because they are close to Allah Tala and they feel they are very pious. Therefore Allah Tala because of the piety Allah Tala is taking them.

00:06:08 --> 00:06:10

The reality of the matter is,

00:06:12 --> 00:06:35

everyone goes because Allah who is the controller of the universe, and who is the controller of the turbine Baitullah and the turbine blade to lies a symbolic house of Almighty Allah which represents and is a symbolic house of Almighty Allah subhanho wa taala, the landmark of Allah,

00:06:36 --> 00:06:39

the Shire of Allah, the symbolic House of Allah,

00:06:40 --> 00:06:46

the salient feature of Allah, Allah is the One who is decided you must come

00:06:47 --> 00:07:37

in therefore I tell the people who are going for Hajj, don't regard this as to be insignificant. No one can today go to the president's house, to the White House and say, I want to go and meet the president. He will say that we have to have to an appointment. If the President agrees, then perhaps you would be able to go, if he agrees to calling you then only you can go if the president of a country only allow certain people who can come to him by his express permission, then how is it that anyone can go for the Kaaba and Baitullah without the permission of Allah, without the grace of Almighty Allah and their respective brothers and sisters? No one goes because he has wealth or his

00:07:37 --> 00:08:17

close to Allah. And I made mention of this previously, that no one goes because they are close to Almighty Allah there are people who are more closer to us, closer to Allah than us. They have not been able to perform Hajj. There are people who have more wealth than us. And they are tremendous wealthy. Allah didn't give them the Tofik they are Muslims, they have wealth. They never ever have the ability. And Allah didn't give them the day he died to go and perform Hajj. There are many occasions like that people have seen with regard to those who are more pious than us. Send our dinner up Rahmatullah Lee who doesn't know Salah Butina up today in the midst of what's happening in

00:08:17 --> 00:08:22

Palestine we all wish for Salah who Dean who can liberate material

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

despite his closeness to Allah, despite being high hero to Islam, despite being such a great service to Islam. So that would be no up Rahmatullah. They did not perform Hajj. He was so engrossed in the Liberation of Palestine, he never had the opportunity to perform and there are people who are wealthier than us, there are people who are greater than us. There are people who are pious than us. Sometimes, a lie didn't

00:08:52 --> 00:08:58

decree that they must go for Hajj. So anyone who goes for Hajj remember it's a grace of Almighty Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:09:01 --> 00:09:07

Because it is a grace of Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala make the most of your journey.

00:09:08 --> 00:09:51

Go and make the most you are going there for a purpose. The purpose is for you to come closer towards Almighty Allah I will make mention of one or two points. I won't be able to give the all the points and the benefits and the objectives of Hajj in the facilities of it but I want to make mention of it. We are not going there because of the food that is there. The accommodation is the accommodation is a means ALLAH has given you the means you adopt the best means for you to go for Hajj. Allah Allah has given you the means you take the best means of conveyance and getting them. That is a means it's not the objective. The objective is something else. The objective is to come

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

closer towards Almighty Allah the objective is the way Allah Allah in the Holy Quran says when Allah He had a nursing he will Beatty it is a right that you owe

00:10:00 --> 00:10:44

Do Allah Allah that you go to his house in somebody's house so we don't go there because of any other reason we don't they go to for shopping. We don't go do that because the hotels are good. We will be able to enjoy the food it will be a good experience. We go there to fulfill the commands of Allah Tala the Hajj. And that is why you will see reason many times I remember this three, remembering and hearing this incident many times as a chef already there's a monozukuri a sub Rahmatullah. Ali has a chef has written this incident in his facility. I heard this incident many times from Mallanna at Shamala Tammy Rahmatullah li while I was studying in Karachi, a person went

00:10:44 --> 00:11:20

to Medina when he went to Medina, he bought what he called a yogurt. Now it's so happened that that yogurt that he purchased nowadays everyone goes and buy yogurt, the medina yogurt is very famous. So now when you go and get there, the porter yogurt, he commented and he said that that particular yogurt was very sour. It was very sour, more sour than what he had in his home place. So he remarked and said, Medina que de be cut out

00:11:21 --> 00:11:27

that the yogurt and sour milk of Medina is excessively sour.

00:11:28 --> 00:11:32

So he sold me a cream sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a dream that night

00:11:33 --> 00:11:55

and nebbia carried him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told him you are not worthy of being in my city leave leave Madina Munawwara leave Madina Munawwara and go out of Medina now the question and I heard this from wild salmon we said the question is if someone found the yogurt to be sour

00:11:57 --> 00:12:03

candies or only notice these one or two technical problems that we just saw that out well this is holding hold on hold on for a minute.

00:13:14 --> 00:13:15

You can

00:13:19 --> 00:13:19

just write the

00:13:31 --> 00:13:57

I inshallah we will be back when we do apologize for the slight technical hitch in that so as far as making mentioned there was an incident of a person who commented about the yogurt of Medina saying it is very sour. So it's gonna be a cream salsa them in a dream who said, go out of my setting. So mama used to ask why it's someone that used to say that the question that is in a mind that can come in the minds of many people is

00:13:58 --> 00:14:03

the yogurt was sour, and he said It is sour what was wrong in that?

00:14:04 --> 00:14:22

And then he gave the reason why it was wrong. He said that it was wrong because did you come to Medina for the love of Libya, Karim saw Salam or did you come in say a source have to commend on the yogurt of Madina Munawwara

00:14:23 --> 00:14:37

What did you come to Madina Munawwara. For did you come to Madina Munawwara to comment on the food that you get in Madina Munawwara or did you come to Medina to gain the proximity in the Shiva and the intercession of the VA cream sauce?

00:14:38 --> 00:14:59

So, we must keep in mind let us be very very focused when we go there. And that is something that I would like to make mention with regard to it. The very important point one of the points is for us to rectify our intention. We all know in normal ama Lavinia Nebia cream sauce limited, everyone's action is decided and it

00:15:00 --> 00:15:48

He's judged by the intention he makes for that, that act of his. We must be very clear we are going for Hajj, Umrah and Zerah. solely to please Allah subhanho wa Taala not to the people must call us *. People must call us so and so that you went for hygiene. Or we don't want to be in any way criticized that this man had money and he didn't go for Hajj to save myself from the criticism of people that we go for Hajj. You are going there to fulfill a hatch and a requirement of the deen. You are going to fulfill a pillar of Islam and you are doing it because Allah Tala has made it compulsory upon you. Keep your intention to please Allah subhanho wa Taala what is one min Allahu

00:15:48 --> 00:15:52

Akbar. The greatest thing is the pleasure of Almighty Allah.

00:15:54 --> 00:16:38

Even the aloe vera Talalay says when the ayat warmer O'Meara OLALIA Abdullah have only seen Allah who did was revealed. You have been commanded to do everything only for the sake of Almighty Allah. He said the heavens and earth stood still. For a moment the Heavens and Earth Stood Still by the consequences and the implication of this verse. All believers, whatever you do you do it solely for the sake of Almighty Allah subhanho wa taala. You don't do it for any other reason. One of our great scholars more than our Palin Puri Rahmatullah used to give this example. He said, Just take this example and he say that you are constructor of a building

00:16:40 --> 00:16:45

builds a construction house for a person by the name of Musa

00:16:46 --> 00:17:31

after you build a house for Musa, he goes to isa for the money for the construction and he goes to ISA and say, Isa, give me the money for the construction I have constructed is I will say, who did you construct the building for? And the constructor will say I build it for Musa so. So I will tell him, You construct it for Musa Why are you asking me isa for money going ask Musa for money, you construct it for Musa. He said in a similar manner on the day of chiamata. If we have not done things for the sake of Allah, Allah can question us and Allah will question was that for who did you do that good deed. If we had done that good deed for the sake of name and fame, Allah will be

00:17:31 --> 00:18:20

entitled to say, you didn't do it for me. Why are you asking me? Why are you asking me for the reward? Coin as the one for whom you had done it quite ask him for the reward. Can you understand what is the importance of doing things for the sake of Almighty Allah subhanaw taala the vehicle himself Salam said in one Hadith tuber democracy, congratulations be upon those people who do things solely for the sake of Allah Almighty Allah will come Masabi rouda they are the light lentigines of Hidayat and guidance, the reoccurring sa cillum tone while they may Jamal when he was sending him to Yemen. Yamaha as Felicity Enoch, Omaha's do your Deen in your good deeds for solely for the sake of

00:18:20 --> 00:18:33

Allah. Then even little good deeds you fecal Amarula Khalil, even little could teach will suffice it will be a means of your salvation. And if you don't do it for the sake of Allah you can do tremendous amount.

00:18:35 --> 00:19:14

But it will not find reward but Allah subhanaw taala let us see to it that we correct our intention for why we await our Allah we're very very, they used to harshly judge themselves. So we do we checked our intention before we go. And even during the course of the journey, we constantly we evaluate our intention, where are we going we are going to please Allah subhanho wa Taala that's the second thing that I would like to make mention of it. Thirdly, we must make dua to Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala to accept. You know when he primally salat wa salam completed this. But

00:19:16 --> 00:19:40

then after he completed he made to our to Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala which Allah Tala is recorded in the first use of the Holy Quran, or have been cobbled Mina in Mecca Anta semi all Ali Baba except from me, you are all hearing all knowing what to Ballina and forgive any shortcomings. So this was a dua bribery salatu salam made. Now can you imagine

00:19:42 --> 00:19:46

the importance of this? The reason why this is important is

00:19:47 --> 00:19:57

Allah might have written written many times for Etihad, Abu Abu Amel many times the door of Amal is open.

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

The door of acceptance is now

00:20:00 --> 00:20:06

lopen sometimes you do something and Allah subhanho wa Taala does not accept it.

00:20:07 --> 00:20:53

Allah in the Quran has made mention of an abbot of the Bani Israel a worship have been in Israel who worship Allah for 300 years and he died as a coffee. He died as a disbeliever he died without believing in Allah subhanho wa Taala into Janam. Allah Tala calls him a dog in the Holy Quran. So we have to be very careful sometimes you have the Amal acceptance is not there we have to plead with Allah to make it Allah must accept and Ebro Emilie's Salam Sedra been at a couple me now Allah except for me you are all hearing all knowing sometimes. You know, you think about it this way that he primally salat wa salam sacrifices to comply with the commands of Allah is legendary.

00:20:54 --> 00:21:08

Allah Allah told him to leave his first homeland, the homeland of his forefathers era in what is present day Turkey in OLFA, in order to come to Canada, he did so

00:21:09 --> 00:21:11

when he was in Quran, Allah Tala told him

00:21:12 --> 00:21:18

or Ibrahim, come to Kaaba Baitullah come to Mackay Makara Mercer time was a barren desert.

00:21:20 --> 00:21:30

And leave your wife and child in a barren desert. No, no vegetation, no food, forget food, not even a drop of water.

00:21:31 --> 00:22:13

And a primary Salam left as it Hajer and Ismail was just newly born. And he left from there. And he as he was leaving, obviously, the Roger must have seen him leaving and said Tony prime Ibrahim, where are you going? Ibrahim? Where are you going? Oh my husband. Where are you going? Where are you leaving us in this barren desert? There is nothing here. If Emily Salam because he was Helene, he was person who submit continued walking we are not Allah told him to walk I told him we Allah you must go. And eventually because he was not answering in the spirit of submission. She said Did Allah tell you to go?

00:22:14 --> 00:22:52

His Allah commanded you to go and he nodded in the affirmative. Affirmative. She was also the wife of such a great Nabi she also must have learned something in the company of that Navy. And she remarked, if Allah Tala told you to go, if Allah Tala told you to go and Allah Allah commanded you to leave us here and Allah Himself will make the necessary arrangements for our provision. It so it happened ally Nazim it is that sacrifice it today, you and I we fight with people to bring more than five liters of zum zum back

00:22:53 --> 00:23:35

it is you someone say five liters we say why five liters that has been 20 liters. You go there you drink as much Simsim as you can, you will never tire from zum zum Nemea cut himself some said whatever intention you drink some some for that particular intention inshallah will be fulfilled while by the grace of Almighty Allah. It is because of the sacrifice of the primary Solomon as we all know the incident she ran between what is pretty made me lane of the rain, when she couldn't see the smile. And when she came past and so that water was gushing forth, you know, and gushing forth and she came and said zamzam Stop Stop, stop thinking that she will you know, keep the water and

00:23:36 --> 00:24:26

eventually salaam left. Then he primary salat wa salam was to put us put us a knife at the neck of your son to slaughter him. He did that. If anyone ever could have said, If anyone in the history of human humankind other than our beloved, could have said, Yeah, Allah. I made so much of sacrifice. I left my two homelands. And I left my wife and child in a barren desert. I was prepared to sacrifice and slaughter my one and only son who was so beloved to be a winner. You have to accept. You have to accept what I've done. Perhaps the primary salatu salam could have been justified in saying that but no, he's making dua to Almighty Allah have been at Taco Bell Mina, in the context of you will Aleem

00:24:26 --> 00:24:59

who will accept from me you are all hearing or knowing if that was Abramelin salat wa salam ziani What is our yearning, what is our concern? So we must constantly remember the super basically, what we are making mentioned this for thus far. We started saying firstly the origin Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam was told by Allah Tala Hey, Al Hajj come towards Hawaii, after he constructed the Kaaba and ALLATRA told him who ever listens to it will say Lubbock secondly we say no one goes because he's wealthy is close to Allah Tala.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:44

He's well connected. He knows someone he knows how to work the nusach app, no one goes because of that reason everyone goes because Allah Tala called you remember that. Thirdly, make it worthwhile. See to it that you go and you go and spend your time in such a manner that it is worthy of you because Allah Tala has called you for three very important your intention must be correct your intention. Firstly ask Allah Tala for acceptance as the primary salat wa salam ask Allah Tala for acceptance after construction. Now many times we see we already talking about spiritual preparedness. Many times we have this whole particular aspect in our communities, that and maybe

00:25:44 --> 00:26:24

nowadays is not so common. But I know we all know previously people used to go and ask and go house to house go to the family people's house to ask for forgiveness before they go for Hajj. And many of the elderly people would know I know that we used to do that people used to go far and wide for weeks or months before being for Hajj, weekends degree from one far off places where their relatives are why we were going for hydrogen as that particular relative for forgiveness. Nowadays it doesn't happen like that. So, either you send a message or sometimes you make a phone call or sometimes the way I see nowadays, that you know instead of you wave to so many places you call everyone to one

00:26:24 --> 00:26:35

hour to new medium, whatever it is, one of the things is seek forgiveness from the people whom you have wronged. And why do we do that? You see there are two types of rights that are upon us.

00:26:37 --> 00:26:55

Who kukula We are going to the place where inshallah Allah Tala will forgive us, if we have violated the rights of Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala and inshallah Allah will forgive us. So this is the one that we are going to the place which is the center of asking for forgiveness.

00:26:57 --> 00:27:02

So this is something that we have to keep in mind in sha Allah, Allah says, Allah will forgive us, but who?

00:27:03 --> 00:27:41

Allah subhana wa Taala has said that Allah won't forgive until the person who have wronged does not forgive you. If you have done something wrong to someone, when asked for forgiveness, it is easier to you for you to ask for forgiveness here, then to leave it for another occasion. And you go for Hajikko all the way for Hajj. And because of the wrongs that we have done to someone, your do ours are not accepted or your hatch. There is a barrier towards acceptance of your hedge, there is a barrier towards the acceptance of your DUA. And today it's amazing. I don't know why what's happening today into this thing. We just don't have the relationship that we used to have with our

00:27:41 --> 00:28:21

relatives. Allah in the Quran says what is the Kuba haka, give each and every one the relatives they do, right. It's compulsory for us to fulfill the rights of our relatives. Now, obviously, if you have fulfilled your rights, you go to someone, you ask for forgiveness. You go and speak to someone, they don't forgive you or they don't. You know, obviously if there is something that you are owing them, if there is a financial right that you have not been able to fulfill, you must go and fulfill it. But if they you can make Salam they don't make Salam to you. That's their responsibility. You have fulfilled your your duty, but see to it that you don't leave anyone whom you have wronged

00:28:21 --> 00:28:56

without asking for forgiveness. This is important today. Today you find the way I was listening to a talk of someone who was very close to me, he said that nowadays is a Jeep. The people they tell you, their own brothers, they don't invite to their own children's wedding. I'm not inviting my brother. You know, you invite everyone for 500 euros, invite your very small very, very close family member. Sometimes you even say I work people making these type of statements. He said he wasn't even come to my janazah they go to a mana and said sit with it has anyone come to my janazah you are trying to control things after you have passed on.

00:28:57 --> 00:29:21

When asked for forgiveness, then another important thing is deaths. Now this is very important for us to understand spiritual preparedness for Hajj. Many times people will ask the question Is it permitted for us to go for Hutch if we had debt we have debts we are owing people is it permitted for us to go for Hajj very important for us to understand this particular masala

00:29:22 --> 00:30:00

debt in Islam is not an insignificant thing. Maybe recurring saw Selim used to ask him that Allah for Allah's protection against having a debt. N for death, you know, so for a bed death since Aisha said Yara Sula, you join these two things together. So maybe a cream sauce some said yes, Aisha. When a person is someone's curse, someone's debt that he has to fulfill. Then he becomes morally vulnerable. When he speaks he speaks lies when he makes a promise

00:30:00 --> 00:30:16

As he breaks a promise, so, therefore, stay away as far as possible from a debt, if you have a debt now, what is the situation with regard to how much well am I have written, there are different types of debt one debt is you have an agreement with someone to repay the debt.

00:30:18 --> 00:31:09

Over many years, I will you took a loan from someone you are going to repay 20,000 rent every month 10,000 rent every month 5000 rent every month, that is an agreement that you have, you know, an agreement that is as a data you have, you know, that you are going to pay you are going to pay in over so many years. Now, in that particular situation as long as you make arrangement for the repayment while you are going for hutch, it is perfectly permitted for you to go watch. There is no problem whatsoever for you to go for Hajj, if there is an agreement that we have to pay over so many months and you will see to it that the repayment plan is met during the journey of lunch. But if for

00:31:09 --> 00:31:15

example, you are going for Hajj and you are owing someone who wants the money,

00:31:16 --> 00:31:24

who wants the money, who is desirous of the money, who is in need of the money and you

00:31:25 --> 00:31:26

you don't pay him

00:31:28 --> 00:32:12

then it is it is better for you. It is not permitted for you to go you must go and pay the money person unless the person gives you permission permission. So if you don't have a monthly installment and you are owing someone, then there are two things either if he doesn't agree and he said no, I want my money then you have to pay his money. And if you for example, you tell him see I'm going for Hajj, I'm owing you money, but you know I have been paying you and when I come back inshallah within a specific amount of time I will pay you for masa focus, but you have to take his permission. And if if for example, a person is in need of his money and you are owing him money, then you have to give

00:32:13 --> 00:32:47

more preferable more important to give him money into Overwatch. So, these are the some of the points that we have to keep in terms of the spiritual preparedness. Now let us very beautifully make mention with regard to some of the salient features of hedge. Firstly, let me read the ayat which Allah Tala and the Allama say it is the ayat which made Hotspurs while he lay here, Alan, see he will bait well Illa to Allah, alumnus, upon human being had chil baichwal bait

00:32:48 --> 00:33:00

the pilgrimage of the bay to La Minister da la sebelah whomsoever can afford an edge the means of performing it. Just look at the way Allah Tala is

00:33:01 --> 00:33:48

performing Hajj is a right that you owed to Allah subhanahu wa taala. That Allah Who gave you the faculty of speech, who gave you the faculty of hearing, Allah Allah says in the Holy Quran, Allah de janela como some our appsero Well, after the Quran, he gave you all these faculties so that you might be grateful to all my camera, the one Allah Who gives you Allah is the one who puts so many different colors in your eyes to be able to see, Allah is the One who allows the heart to be several 1000 times every day. Allah has done so much favors upon you, that Allah that creator is telling you, you owe it to me for all the favors I've given you to make hydro at least once a once in a

00:33:48 --> 00:34:17

lifetime. Woman kufra and whosoever is ungrateful, after Allah has given him all this, he does not perform Hajj. Allah is independent from his creation and the entire creation. Allah doesn't need you in a hadith of Namibia cream sauce. If a person has the means of performing it doesn't perform much nivia cream sauce them said Allah says I don't care whether he dies as a disbeliever it acts as a jewel as a Christian. I don't care.

00:34:18 --> 00:34:57

This is the reality with regard to performing Hajj, that after Allah has made it compulsory. How did when you have the means you don't go and perform it. When can you read Will Hajj failure for you again, maybe occur himself some said, Whosoever upon whom hatch becomes first for you. Let him be hasty performing. Don't let him procrastinate. Look, don't let him deny. Obviously there are situations and circumstances. He put his name in the queue. He put his name in the southwest. It didn't come out. He's obviously Lashkar is helpless, you won't be held responsible. But if he has the means, and he doesn't try to go for Hajj, Allah subhanaw taala will hold you accountable. This

00:34:57 --> 00:34:59

is the beauty with regard to it is

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

Just bear this in mind.

00:35:03 --> 00:35:17

This besides human there are four practical duties, which are the principles of Islam. Nebia creme sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that Boullier Islam welcomes that Islam rests upon five principles, five pillars.

00:35:18 --> 00:35:51

There is no secret of all the four practical pillars other than hudge Surah Hodge in the 17 use of the Holy Quran, heart is amazing. Height isn't height is an example and a manifestation of the love of Almighty Allah. You are going there, everything and I just hope I have the time. As a chef. Chef already does. It was a curious up info Xyla Hodge has spent several pages on showing how much as an exposition of love Almighty Allah,

00:35:52 --> 00:35:55

you are going in the

00:35:56 --> 00:36:11

in the clothes of an Ashik of a person who is overwhelmed by the love of Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala you are Ashik a Level Level of the beloved the beloved is another beloved isn't any other human being

00:36:12 --> 00:37:06

and you are going in the uniform and you are going in the clothes of the lover. Allah loves that clothes they for you going in that clothes, maybe a cream sauce celebrates it on the Day of Arafah there is no other day where shaytan is more humiliated and disgrace the way he is humiliated on the day of alpha because of Allah Tala showering His mercy and forgiveness. And Allah Tala on that particular day of alpha boasts in front of the angels. Oh my angels. Look at my peoples zoo Whalley Beatty. Those people who have come to visit my house on jewelers worry Beatty, Caja oni shortfin Obara OH MY ANGELS look at those people. They have come to me, they are disheveled hair, and they

00:37:06 --> 00:37:07

are full of tasks.

00:37:09 --> 00:37:30

This is the clothes that we wear because the beloved likes the clothes that we are wearing. That is why we wear they have because a learner loves it. So even if there is difficulty and people say it's coming out, I don't know how to tie it correctly and other belt is coming out whatever it is you wear it because Allah loves it.

00:37:31 --> 00:37:41

How it is hearing yesterday and it was an incident in one of our one of our lives made mention. He said he was Junaid about Daddy Rahmatullah Lee

00:37:43 --> 00:37:44

was making dough off

00:37:45 --> 00:37:50

of the cover in the victory lap. As he was making the wealth of the Kaaba and Baitullah

00:37:51 --> 00:38:01

a young woman fully covered in hijab was rendering poetry of love.

00:38:03 --> 00:38:10

So Junaid said Junaid, Baghdadi said, Oh man, what are you seeing? In front of the Kaaba in between?

00:38:11 --> 00:38:13

You are singing poetry of love.

00:38:15 --> 00:38:22

And she said Junaid don't misunderstand me. I'm not talking of love of Krishna, I'm talking of the love of Allah.

00:38:23 --> 00:38:26

And then she turned around and said Surely

00:38:29 --> 00:38:31

what Who are you making it off of?

00:38:32 --> 00:38:36

What are you making Tawaf off. So donatable Derrida material he said,

00:38:38 --> 00:38:39

I'm making a wealth

00:38:41 --> 00:38:42

of the Kaaba.

00:38:45 --> 00:38:50

And this woman was such so much in patient for love of Allah.

00:38:51 --> 00:38:54

She looked up at the heavens

00:38:55 --> 00:38:57

and said, Yeah Allah.

00:38:58 --> 00:38:59

How are people?

00:39:01 --> 00:39:02

They make the wealth

00:39:03 --> 00:39:05

of a stone structure and they leave you.

00:39:08 --> 00:39:16

They make the wealth of a stone structure, obviously the Command of Allah, but why are we making it because it is the house of Allah.

00:39:18 --> 00:39:20

She turned and she said yeah, Allah.

00:39:21 --> 00:39:28

People are Jeep people are amazing. They make the wealth of a stone structure and they forget you

00:39:29 --> 00:39:59

to read Baghdad, Iraq, Tulare, fill down fintech. He fainted when he heard this particular woman telling him that he fainted and has heard this from our whole AMA. So what I'm saying is, this is this is the whole thing is about love. You are going there because of the love of almighty and look at everything is this. You leave your house you leave your your house, the comfort of your house or the level of furniture. You wear clothes, which is not normally done.

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

Out of the level four, sometimes you will because then you in MENA, then you are going to refer then you come into Magellan Fund anyway to Mina, can you come to Makkah, then you come into Mina, because the beloved, whom you are doing it for has told you that this is what you must do. Sometimes you work so much, that on a 10th of the stool, he will walk to do it and you do it because the love of Almighty Allah, you're doing it. My dear respected listeners, this is an remarkable aspect. There are so many other benefits that I can make mention of remember.

00:40:32 --> 00:40:53

I'm going to conclude with this one here. And then if there is any comments, people want to any questions maybe people could ask, but I think very important is it's also together with it. Amazing journey of submission. You know, every other act of Ibaadat is some some joy in some wisdom that you can fathom.

00:40:54 --> 00:40:59

Many aspects of hygiene during these days, no apparent wisdom.

00:41:01 --> 00:41:03

You know, sometimes it even goes against

00:41:04 --> 00:41:37

apparent wisdom and using the word apparent very, very carefully and very deliberately. It goes against the penalty wisdom, but you do it because it's a command of Allah just submitting. Allah told me I'm doing it. That is why when Omar Villatoro came to the hatchery I sweat What did he say? He said, Oh Hydra. Oh stone Oh, Hydra Assad. I know you are stone you can benefit you can have all your luck and benefit only Anakin. Hum, I'm only kissing you because I saw the beloved of anarchy

00:41:39 --> 00:41:59

I in a spirit of submission and kissing rule because I saw maybe a Grimsel slim dude he did it in the visa system said oh people take from me the rites of passage perhaps you will never get an opportunity again to learn from me the rites of passage and doing it because of that. Just consider this and before I conclude

00:42:00 --> 00:42:25

you go and you run between me lady as vary between the two green lights. You run because as it Hajra did not have water and she was running in search of water. And she could not see as sunny that time that between that place that that that distance. So she started running so that she could come to the other side where she could see a smile.

00:42:26 --> 00:42:33

And she was running because there was no water. Now you also run you also run

00:42:34 --> 00:42:49

someone asked you and said Why are you running? I'm running because Allah loves hazard agilus action so much that Allah made it part of Hajj for us to run. Someone tells you but Hydra was running for water.

00:42:50 --> 00:42:57

UAB is in every 50 meters deep inside. You got a full bucket of some some water.

00:42:58 --> 00:43:18

You got to get cold some some and you go to Hot and you get the room temperature some some. Why are you running? Hazzard? Hajra whom you are emulating? She was running because there was no water? Yeah, there is water every 50 meters. Why are you running? I'm doing so because the navy of Allah told us to run between millenia

00:43:19 --> 00:44:07

in commemoration was an homage era. Then someone tells you, you are stoning and you are pelting the Jamara Why are you doing it because the primary salatu salam saw shaytan in front of him and he pelted him that he must not become an obstacle in him carrying out Allah's commands. Someone tells you, Ebro Emily's Salam, soy bliss, where are you seeing bliss? He Bramley Salam, soy bliss, it took the stone and he was hitting the bliss. You don't see please What are you What are you stoning? Imam Ghazali Rahmatullah says If anytime that particular notion comes into the mind of someone into the heart of someone, remember, it is put into him by shaytan. Who, who doesn't want him to carry out an

00:44:07 --> 00:44:10

act out solely out of submission?

00:44:11 --> 00:44:27

He said that then when you preach something comes out in your mind, go and do it with more fervor. And you will break the back of shaytan that there is a person doing something solely he can understand the reason he can understand and Fathom there was the but he's doing it out in the spirit of submission.

00:44:28 --> 00:44:59

So this is how much it's an exposition of love. It's an exposition of submission. Therefore we are cream sir Allahu Allah He was celebrated Subhan Allah Subhana Allah, that the person who makes height Alhaji Almagro Lisa who does her own ill Jana, for hijama grew there is no other reward but Jana, another most beautiful passage, most beautiful Hadith. And this is my last my last point what it may be a cream sauce from said, when a person comes back from Hajj and accepted Raja Alka Yom

00:45:00 --> 00:45:28

You will get home. Oh, Kamal Khan, he comes back the way he was born from the womb of his mother, and your person is born on the wombs of his mother. He is completely free from sin. That particular example is also in a way, one one way correct. And one way, coming back from HUD is even more greater than that. That's situation. Why is it great? Can I tell you

00:45:29 --> 00:45:36

when a child is born, there is no there is no sleep. There is no good and there is no bed.

00:45:37 --> 00:45:39

But when a * completes his Hajj

00:45:41 --> 00:46:03

Allah still keeps the good deeds and wipe away the evil deeds. So his situation is even more greater than a child that is born. The child that is born is good, no good teacher no evil deeds. The Hajime then he comes with a little as accepted is that he comes back Allah has wiped away his evil deeds, but his good deeds are still there.

00:46:04 --> 00:46:48

This is Hutch and therefore letters My dear respected listeners, let us go there with full full yearning for passion. And we may do other a little except in a little a grant has all the benefits of hygiene and those who are not going for Hajj, may Allah subhanho wa Taala give them also a few things and inshallah Allah subhanaw taala makes other people who are going Allah subhanho wa Taala grants him and accepted Hajj and Allah Tala makes it a means of the fulfillment of all the objectives. The objectives of agile many, there are many, many benefits I've just made mention of to amongst many others, and I've given you certain certain aspects of preparedness for Agile. May Allah

00:46:48 --> 00:47:02

subhanho wa Taala grant us the acceptance anyone wants to ask any question, please type a message and we will try and reply and we will do our utmost to be able to do and reply.

00:47:03 --> 00:47:20

I'm not sure if we want to open it up for for people to do questions. If anyone wants to come on, they can even ask and they can come on in everyone can listen if not, they can type in the reply and they can type in a message inshallah we will try and do our utmost to be able to do that.
