I once took a group for Hajj and you know when you go for Hajj everybody has gone for Hajj for their first time. They're so excited. And they want to learn all of the rights and the rituals of hedge. So they're reading every single book and every single pamphlet that they can get their hands on. So there was this brother who's reading everything that he could have had. And he was really confused about a verse in the Quran. What is the verse that he was confused about? Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says, in no fluff, one another watch me.

nulla Shakeel 190 team, the brother was asking, why are we telling people that sadly between suffer in Ottawa at the walking, running and walking between the mountains of a southern Mandala is an obligation. Why do we tell people that it's a pillar of Hajj and Umrah that your Hajj and Umrah is not valid unless you do the Saturday between Suffern Marwan? He's asking why are you saying this? When when you read this verse, Allah Subhana Allah says there is no sin on the one who does say between Suffern Marwan Allah Subhana Allah says there's no problem. There's no sin on the one who does it. He says from the verses sounds like you know, you can do Sally if you want or if you don't

00:01:38--> 00:02:16

want, but you people IE people like me are telling people, it's an obligation. He was confused about this. I said, Tim Subhana Allah this question that you've asked, is the same exact question that Ursula Edna Zubair asked his aunt, Aisha rhodiola, who had had the wife of the Prophet, he went through with the same question. He said, This verse sounds like you know, you can do Saturday if you want. Why do we tell people that it's an obligation? I should told him you didn't understand this verse. He didn't understand what's meant here. She explained to him why this verse was revealed. She said in the times of jahai, Leah, suffer and Mandala, the two mountains of South our motto would be

00:02:16--> 00:02:51

filled with idols, they'd be idols on the peak of each mountain and surrounding each mountain, they would wipe themselves on these idols before they would do the Saturday between Safa and Marwa and particularly the idol of an Monette was related to the cell phone model and they would wipe themselves particularly on the idol and then they would do Saturday between suffered not one and the Arabs didn't know or they were very disconnected from the history of Prophet Ibrahim and say that Hajj, Ali SNM. And the miracle of Zamzam that came to Prophet is Marian and the entire story surrounding that they didn't really know much about it. All they knew was the idols that surrounded,

00:02:51--> 00:03:29

suffer and Mandala. And there was even said that there were two idols he saphan that you know, which was apparently a story in january of two young people who committed how long inside the Kava will add the villa. And when they committed how long inside the Kava, these two lovers a lot petrified them, he turned them into stone, and the machete coolin instead of saying oh wow, Allah punish these two people for committing how long instead they said, Wow, this is a romantic story. And they took their petrified bodies, and they put them on a sofa with Medusa and they used to worship them and and do acts of veneration to them, even though this was a story of punishment from Allah subhanaw

00:03:29--> 00:04:05

taala so the Muslims the Sahaba when they came to do their Hajj and Umrah they felt something inside of themselves when they were told to go do Saturday between Safa and Marwa they felt uncomfortable because their entire life they saw suffer and model as being related to idolatry. And so they did they felt very uncomfortable about doing this when they've become Muslims and they believe in Hades and they believe in Allah and they don't believe in idolatry and worshiping idols and things along that line. They felt uncomfortable. So Allah subhanho data revealed this verse in the slough our model a term in sha Allah. Indeed the suffering model is from the symbols of Allah from an hudgell

00:04:05--> 00:04:41

beta a tunnel Fela Juna Holly yo of habima so whoever does Hajj and Umrah there is no sin upon them for doing Saturday between the two of them. Allah saying this has nothing to do with idolatry. There's no sinfulness there's no idolatry by doing say, between stuff and Mandala. No, this is from the symbols of the symbols of Allah subhana wa Tada. There are so many lessons we can take from this particular you know, verse in the Quran of It is Allah subhanaw taala emphasizing and establishing the sacredness of the suffer and Mandala and the sanity between them. But also amongst them is the importance of understanding the context of the Quran. Because when you read that verse, it's very

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

easy to get confused by it if you don't understand the context and the reason for which it was revealed, which is one of the reasons why we are doing the series to better understand the Quran. By understanding its context. If we read the Quran with no context without looking at the Hadith and the situations that occurred when these verses

00:05:00--> 00:05:07

were revealed we can very easily take the wrong idea and that's why it's important for us to learn the plan as holistically as we possibly can.
