Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatu departures are never easy, and especially departing from the Holy Land like Medina sumana wa, where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is resting. It reminds me of when the Sahaba they allowed Allah whom would be sent out of Medina, they would find it difficult, but they would continue with the task at hand because they understood the importance of it. One particular incident is of While the majority of multilotto the Prophet of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was walking with Him out of Medina, as you are sending him out on a mission.
And his final words was Omar's,
perhaps this is our last meeting. And we might not see each other after this day.
Just Just picture that moment. And the feelings and the sentiments of that Sahabi miles traveled at that time,
live in Medina and been told that he will he might not see the Prophet sallallahu Sallam again, when he returns, imagined the heart he left was the sentiments that he left to us. What's the kind of feelings that each person goes with and he's leaving Medina to munawwara. So when you live in Madeira to munawwara leave with this was this deep attachment that you have with the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, and you are finding it difficult to leave.
So as you are departing, you make your way to the road or mobarak. And you present yourself for the final time. And you present to rudan salam upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi Salaam and you leave Medina to munawwara you must treat the Prophet sallallahu Sallam before leaving.
And as you leave in,
I draw your attention towards an important aspect and I spoke about this in the previous episode, that there was a pillar by the name of Astana Han Nana, where a date palm wood would be stationed at once upon a time in the Prophet have allowed us to recline upon this date palm, in separation of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam started crying so profusely
because of the detachment there and because of the separation, Mr. Malik Rahmatullah Lee mentioned that if this is the attachment of a three to the beloved Salallahu alaihe salam, imagine our attachment as believers and as human beings, to the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So as we are leaving Medina to munawwara, we should leave with the attachment of Sierra,
and at attachment to the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And we are fortunate that we have been given the opportunity to visit this holy land. And so we should have a deeper sense of connection to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that we've seen the place we've been here. It's only right that we now create a deeper sense of attachment or the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, which means we need to study his life. We need to study his day, we need to study his night, we need to study his mannerisms. We need to study how he interacted with people, we need to study his family life. And slowly we need to try and bring that change within our life.
And this will only happen with education, which means that we need to purchase a good book on Sierra and we need to at least read the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam at least once from cover to cover in a chronological order, starting from his birth right up to his demise. Some of the books that I would suggest is a raha Palma tomb. The sealed nectar is a very good book to start off as a starting point number two, co2 Mustafa the abridged version, excellent read. And then if you want to go more intense the third book is a Sierra Nevada or the life of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam by Dr. Ali Mohammed a Celebi, which is covered in three volumes in the English language. So we must
attach excuse me, we must attach ourselves to the Syrah and to the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, especially visiting the Holy Land.
And as you are exiting, you must leave with a lot of Toba and a lot of is still far that Allah forgive us for we have not been able to fulfill the rights of this place. We have not been able to acknowledge its proper status, and we have not been able to fulfill its duties or law you forgive us for our shortcomings. And we should always make dua that over law
as we are exiting this holy land bring us again and again. Again and again to this Blizzard land and because mobile places
Make it a regular feature in our life over law.
And the last point is, as we are exiting, many of us will be going for ombre. And those who are going formula, it's important that to turn that around as you reach the mccobb boundary. And the mccobb boundary for the people of Medina is vole halifa. So the easiest way is to Don your harem in the in the hotel, make your hotel you can apply perfume I throw oil, whatever you want to because you're not yet in the state of a harem. You're only putting on their helmet you're not in the state of a heroine when once you reach the halifa you can lead to rocket Salah. This is Mr. hab if it is not my crew time, you really are two rockets Allah after two rockets Allah you are going to make
your intention. You're going to make your intention for ombre. And once you've made your intention, then you read your Tobia. So to put the two pieces of cloth to make the intention and to read the Tobia these three things will enter you into the state of a home.
So that's important to keep in mind. Once you've done that you are in the state of a harem. Remember, if you pass the midcard boundary without donning the harem, then your ombre
will be will be impacted. And there's a penalty that you have to pay. And you need to you need to get this right before you get before you pass them your court boundary. Also for men, you must make sure that you have proper foot gear for the firearm. And for that you can refer to your books.
And as you are leaving,
look at the terrain around you towards the right and towards the left. And think of the journey of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in that long, tiring, odious terrain with a profit of a loss of a lot it sort of made his way to Medina to munawwara while he was making hedgerows and think, what he must have experience and what he what he must have went through in terms of the difficulties of the journey. So these are some humble thoughts we leave you with as we depart from Medina to munawwara male muscle panatela bring us back to Medina over and over again.
