Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Today's hedge protip relates to cutting the hair. This is the last part of your Amara. Once you do this, your Amara will be complete, and is also a very important component of the Hajj as well. Now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made three laws three very special Bois's for the one who shaves their head. And this relates to the men process that allow it to some segment allows mercy beyond those who shave their head allows mercy on those who shave their head allows mercy on those who shave their head. And the companion said, O Messenger of Allah, what about those who trim the Prophet said, and them too. So from this, what we learn is

00:00:35--> 00:01:13

that for the men in particular, you must make every attempt there is to shave your head. Now, someone may say, but why do I need to shave my hair? Well, the reason is because the hair is the honor of the human being. And when we shave this hair for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. It's as if we're single Allah, Allah have humbled myself to you to the degree that I've done something that I would have never done in my life. And the idea that the whole point that you're asking that, why do I need to shave my hair shows that that's something very hard to let go of. And you're saying, Yeah, I'm gonna let that go for your sake. Most people, the only time in their life, they'll

00:01:13--> 00:01:45

shave their head is in hydro phenomenon. And that's a huge sacrifice. They're something you've never done for anyone other than Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now, many people, they're worried that if I cut my hair, if I shave my head while I'm in hydrometer, what's going to happen when I come back home, my co workers, my friends, my relatives, well, to make that burden easier, break it to them before you go, before you go on your journey. Let everybody know that matters to you that Hey, guys, I'm going on my pilgrimage. And as a part of it, I'm going to be shaking my head, you know, so, Hey, get ready for it. You know, you can say it in a joke. You can say it formally however you like. But if

00:01:45--> 00:02:17

you let them know before it happens, it'll be a lot easier to break the break the news to them. And when you're there, everyone in your group will most likely be doing it. So don't be afraid and put that bled to put that blade to your head and inshallah shave your head off. However, if for whatever reason you can't, and everyone has their unique excuses, then know that trimming your head, trimming your hair is also completely permissible. Now for the women. As well, you are not allowed to shave your head. However your reward lies in trimming and that the law of the profits along with some applies. by trimming your hair, you want to do a summer privately for the women because your hair is

00:02:17--> 00:02:48

such that you want to keep it covered. Maybe in a private place, you can cut your hair after you've done your telephone study. If there's no one there to cut your hair, you can cut it yourself as well how much needs to be cut the equivalent of the top part of the finger if you want to say an inch of each side of the hair. So you're going to split it into the right or the left the back and cut one inch from the bottom of each one each each segment of your hair, each part of your hair and you're good to go. You're now out of the state of go use your soap your shampoo, apply perfect yourself, trim your nails, whatever you want, because from this point onwards, you are now out of the state of

00:02:48--> 00:02:56
