Now this is the last part of the recording and as we mentioned when leaving Medina to munawwara, a person should try and visit the robot Mubarak, the resting place of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, present himself for the last time, present his durood and Salaam upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi Salaam in his country companions of over carosa do phenomenal how poverty allowed Thailand home. Likewise, when it comes to Mecca, Toluca, Rama, the last thing to do, when leaving for home is to make the wall for the last and final time. And this is to say that Allah subhanaw, taala, Jazakallah hyaluron, for bringing us to your holy lands. And may you bring us over and over again and also, to
leave with a lot of remorse that we have not been able to fulfill the duties of this place, we have not been able to fulfill the rights of this place. So we should leave with a heavy art and making a lot of draw for our shortfalls. And also at the same time making sure that the last panel does not bring us again and again, to this blessing in Mubarak land of mccurtain, mocha Rama and also Medina to munawwara. And as we leave the holy lands, once again, I'm going to remind myself and everyone else, we need to attach ourselves to the Sierra and to the life of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. It is because at this place, the new Buddha of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam started, and it is in a
Medina to munawwara where the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam ended of his mission. So both these places have a very, very significant role to play in the life of a believer. And therefore one needs to attach himself to the seer of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And I would also like to say that knowledge is extremely important when it comes to the holy lens, your journey just becomes much more meaningful, when you have when you have adequate knowledge about the important locations of the Kaaba, the surroundings and also other places when you are going on siara. So it's extremely important for us to educate ourselves, when it comes to the matters of the Holy Land. And when it
comes to the matters of
the the veto off and also sigh and other aspects of a ROM, I tell you are sitting in the holy lens and marveling at the sun and the shery are and you get a different perspective. When you are reading the Quran, when you are studying the Sierra,
many verses I would be reading at home.
But when I read it here in the holy lands, where it was revealed, I tell you, there's a different dimension and a different perspective to it. It's It's so unique. You learn for example,
when the Prophet of Allah sallallahu Sallam left the Cave of Hira, after visiting jabril la salatu salam, he went to visit his beloved wife Khadija de lo de la now for us is very easy. He came down from the cave and he went to below, visit his wife and she covered him and the story ends day. But when you come here, and you see how far up the Cave of Hara is, how much you have to submit to get to the top.
You realize it's not just a matter of he came down and he went to the house of Khadija and she comforted him. Rather you now you now get a deeper understanding that the Prophet of Allah Salallahu alaihe salam, he is in his 40s. And it's taken us as youngsters so much time to go up the mountain. Imagine how much time it took the Prophet sallallahu Sallam to go up. And we're not talking about the flat pedal, we're not talking about a soft,
comfortable area to climb, we're talking about the rocky land, which a person is climbing. And it's taken him a long time, a long time to climb. And similarly, it takes him a long time to come down. At least they say at least takes you an hour to climb an hour to come down. So imagine at that time you talking about the Prophet of Allah climbing down slowly, slowly, slowly, and then go into her IJA it's not just he came down and then he went to her teacher's house. Likewise, when you're talking about better and offered,
how the Mexican army came from muckety muck aroma and how the Muslims less from Medina munawwara but there is approximately 140 160 kilometers out of Medina. You then realize the kind of journey they undertook under difficult circumstances in that the rocky terrain and I tell you even today when we visit it's so
Hot, but we are traveling econ buses and air conditioned vehicles.
It gives you a sense of understanding how they had traveled at that time, in the thick of summer. And not only that, it was also Ramadan on the 12th of Ramadan, the prophet of Allah left Medina to munawwara to face the army and to intercept the duration. It was thick, it was in the thick of summer, it was extremely, extremely hot.
Under those circumstances, the Sahaba they are loaded on whom traveled from Medina and they were fasting subhana wa, they were fasting, that's the amazing aspect
because Ramadan had just become compulsory upon them. So, all these other dimensions of the Sierra you cannot appreciate and you cannot understand only after you visit the holy lands. So, there is a deep sense of attachment the person develops any visits mccurtain makara mind Madina, munawwara And may Allah subhanaw taala grant us the intercession of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi cinemavilla piano I request you to make to offer myself and my family and May Allah subhanaw taala make these recordings a means of Baraka and a means of higher every recording was done at the Mubarak location. Like at the moment I am standing right in front of the Kaaba. As I complete this recording. I've
been Alhamdulillah with the grace of Allah recording in riobel Jenna, I've been to the Hatim. I've been to many different locations to compile the series and put it together for you and to try to capture the essence in the atmosphere around me as I'm bringing you these pieces of information just to know Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah
