Welcome to this
how to perform match.
The intention here is to try to make it easy for you
to go there and perform. Since for most people, this is only once in a lifetime experience, you will not get to do it again.
Actually, it's getting more and more difficult. So whoever is able to do it should do it. I don't know what will happen later. And therefore, if most people are going to do it only once, try to do it right.
As much as possible.
first of all, why do we perform
a lot of people annually they take
days off the work and they go to
on a vacation
or they go to some islands, but here you're going to perform.
Why is the view like there is beach are there very beautiful green trees is the weather nice? None of that action, but it is
the command from above.
And it is the proclamation of Hajj that was made by the divine.
it is the pillar of Islam as the province of our southern nation.
And the other
we have a surah
it is Sora.
And in this surah Palazzo just mentioned Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and he is the one who made this proclamation but as we get to kerajaan they will come to you walking while fully bombing and driving. I mean fully funded, I mean they will come from every beat route for everybody.
This will allow humanity
there was no one there
was empty. He Himself said
I placed from my progeny from my family in a barren Valley.
No one was there. Now you'll get people millions that don't
want that's from a lung surgeon.
Have no matter how many times we go there we still want to go for one. Again no one can explain that.
We've we spent money on going to other places that are beautiful. The weather is nice. It's less crowded, but they're no matter how many times we go we still want to go. It is from
the command came in Surah Al Iran in Iran 97 polylang alumnus
MINUSTAH. That's the command where had became mandatory
due to alarm from the people is pilgrimage to the house for whoever is able to find their to away this condition is for whoever is able to find their way made it easy for people
because height is not mandatory if you cannot perform it and a lot of them only said that due to Allah from people is a pilgrimage to the house. It would have been mandatory on all the one plus million Muslims
but Allah made a condition the man is the IV Sevilla for him who can afford we
will talk about that this is one of the conditions of the
based on this scholars actually different is had mandatory immediately or
it is it could be performed later.
We have in front of what we call watching and watching. Watch
Boolean is a logic that has to be performed immediately. There is no other time. Like,
when a man comes, you cannot choose and say I will fast. In the next month, there is only one robot, there is only one day every day you will have to fast. But for instance, when we have prayer for prayer, you have from the end that at 130 or 120 until
430. So you have three hours, or what it takes for you to pray over is about 10 minutes in those three hours. So that's what we call logic.
When it comes to hedge, some scholars said it is watching LFO immediate whenever you can afford performing hand, you have to do it. You cannot wait if you wait, you are blind mode.
According to Mark Shapiro, and how long he said this was if this command is added,
it could be delayed. But in our time, the Wisdom is whether you believe in the opinion of
or you believe in the opinion of other scholars, the wisdom says you need to do it as soon as possible. Because every year it's getting more and more difficult. And just this year,
about few, maybe two weeks ago, only two weeks ago. I don't know if you know that, by the way, who's going for Hajj from him from Malaysia to see
who is on the waiting list?
Have you heard any any news because unfortunately, I heard that two weeks ago, Saudi Arabia reduced the quota for Malaysia.
So it's getting even more difficult. Why? Unfortunately, they are mixing politics because of the new elections because of some political views. They reduced the quarter. If anything, actually they should increase it. But this just happened recently. So you don't know you couldn't have gone but you didn't, maybe you do not have a second chance. So try to do it as soon as possible. Shout out to him. He believes that this was revealed in year six of Egypt. Yet the prophet SAW Selim only performed Hajj in year 10. And therefore had is not mandatory. The majority of scholars said this I was revealed that he or nine and the prophets are performed immediately the next year. Yes, he was
able to perform hydronium nine but he said
on his behalf. So the mechanica would be ready for the Muslims because there were idols, there are people who are not Muslim still going there. So
the point here, trying to go for Hajj as soon as possible whenever you can. Now, I'm not sure if that works for you. But if you feel that it's going to take too long, and you can apply from another country, maybe that's the way I heard that some people they go to countries where the quota is is not high, but it is good enough, and people don't match the quota. Like in Europe, for instance. I don't know if that works. Maybe that would be a wait because you keep waiting. And some people I've heard from our students, some of them, their turn will come in year 2027. You don't get hacked.
hacked. Yes, you are shocked.
47 masama are you guaranteed to live
and even if you are alive, in Islam, the better, the better is either financial, like playing soccer, or physical, like prayer. You don't pay anything you just stand up and you pray, which requires both. And the physical part is not easy. So you need to perform it when you are strong. It will be crowded, strong, physically strong mentally, because even if you think that yes, I'm still strong physically, but you are all maybe your immune system is not that strong. And when you meet with all those people every year they add a new vaccination. You don't know what happens most people come back they are sick. So therefore, trying to do it as soon as possible. Had as the process
animation Jihad lashes, it is Jihad without fighting. Because it is
you need to be patient you need to spend time you need to spend money and there are many things so remember that now.
He here are the conditions for performing average
and there are seven
The most conditions for arriba is inherent. Why? Because had, as I told you requires both financial ability and physical ability, unlike all the other events, where you just have to be Muslim,
you have to be adult, each individual liberty and that's, you know, in had, it's more than
being a Muslim.
That's why actually even entering that area is prohibited on non Muslims.
Some non Muslims object to that and they say, Well, why you are discriminating, we're not discriminating, you're more than welcome to go if you want but accept Islam.
There is something you can do accept Islam and you can go because even Muslims, they have been waiting and they cannot go. So you need to be a Muslim. If you are not Muslim, even if you go it will not be accepted.
And then how to relax only once in a lifetime. When the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told the companions in unmarketable.
All Muslims, Indeed, Allah restripe hedge so performed hedge
is one of the companies he told the profits of.
Is it every year. So the profits are kept quiet the next time also he said visit every year. And then the process of setting up how they said yes, it would have been obligatory and hadn't been obligatory. What happens, you wouldn't be able to perform it. Imagine now once in a lifetime, and we are having difficulty what happens when it is every year? So there is a wisdom from above and beyond. So being a Muslim
reaching the age of puberty.
What happens when you have
I don't know if that's possible here actually also, but in some countries, like in both countries, even not, not now it's even the best, although they needed to do to drive their cars and go because they are.
So they take their family. So if they took their family like children, and they performed, they did perform him. Yes, they get the reward, yes, but it doesn't count. You have to perform hand
when you are adults.
Also, there is another situation, it doesn't involve us in shower, none will be in that situation. But just in case, a brother or
sister who was not a Muslim, and they told him you cannot marry her until she is a Muslim. She accepted Islam. Because they told her she had to they got married, and they applied for Hajj and they went for Hajj. They came back marriage fell apart. So she left Islam because to begin with, she didn't want Islam but she was forced to then later she accepted Islam willingly. Not for marriage, not for anything but checks into this life.
She has to perform.
she has to be
Senate, you need to be saying with your faculty in that.
Yes. Because it invalidates
being a free person and this, this is not an issue in our time in a free person. But at that time, it was a condition why because when you are a slave,
you will have a master that you have to answer to you have to work for. And he has to give you permission. It's not like few hours going on, it would take days. Actually nowadays, I would say similar to this being an employee, because you have to take permission from work and you have to apply before and and because now most packages, it's about one month to 40 days and they don't give you that much time, especially if you needed something else throughout the year. That's why it's not easy. Some people prepare a few years ahead of time when they know that this is the like 2020 so from now from 2018 they are preparing money and vacation time and all these things. So
availability of food and transportation for
Alonzo Joseph what is overdue fighting the heroes are the top one. There were people who used to go for Hajj and they don't take anything
So people watch them on the road, they are going for hikes. And they ask them what steel method, they say we are the guests of Allah. So what is your provision, they rely on others, so they start becoming members. So as we just said,
in our time, is that is the financial ability.
It's not really the food that you worry about most packages, they come with football, you have three meals a day. But it is the cost itself that you need to worry about the cost of going there, the cost of the fees, and the tickets and all these things.
safety of the role.
They stipulated that condition because it wasn't safe at their time.
Many people actually they would
they bid farewell to their families, or they go for there is a chance that they wouldn't come back.
Now, that made it easy, and we just fly there and it is safe. But in the past, it wasn't like that. This is what some of the scholars of Islam, they actually didn't perform. They live very far away. But
he was in attendance in school.
And to go to med camp wasn't easy. He didn't go.
And that's why in the book of hedge, he had some opinions that were strange, wrong, because knowledge is one thing. But practice is another thing you need to practice when you are there, you see things differently,
being able to walk.
That's the physical ability, when a lot of
ladies are needed for him who could afford the way
being able to afford the way meaning also being able to walk
in the past 20 years. And earlier, we used to see people on wheelchairs, and we used to see people carry on some wooden and that would cause a lot of
discomfort for people because they take a lot of space. And they show others just even though Imagine you're walking, you're doing it all off outside and it is very tight and someone behind you in the wheelchair, chances are you will return bleeding. So hamdulillah Finally, they stopped that. Just because you want to perform hajj, it doesn't mean you hurt others, because it did hurt others like for everyone wheelchair, it takes the space of three four people, there is no space anymore. It's very crowded. So what did they do, they allow people who are handicapped who have medical condition, but they have left they have one foot for them. So for the last in particular, there is
entrance. So if you try to enter from any place, they wouldn't let you they tell it to go to that designated place. So that made it easy. Why because here's the thing, you cannot do it, you don't have to do it.
Someone says I have the money.
And I have the physical ability and I meet all these conditions. But every time I apply, I cannot get approved. There are other conditions beyond my ability.
Actually, I was one of them.
Syrians for a few years they will not allow to go the only place like if you are here in Malaysia, you cannot apply. You have taught mine from only one place from Turkey.
Because of the political situation in Syria because of the war revolution, there is no ministry Islamic ministry or representation of the Saudi embassy there. So they can look over the head affairs for Syrians to activity which is there in Turkey. So I had to apply for residency then I had to go to Turkey first. Once I got it then I was able to apply
and then I got approved. So if someone who lives here, and he and that's the case with many people actually some brothers here they say if I want to perform hajj, I can skip the waiting line, but I have to pay roughly about 100,000 or 80,000 I don't have that kind of money. So for you had is not mandatory.
You tried your best. What else can you do? As I told you my my suggestion, if you can do it from another country, then try try that maybe this works. You travel like this time in chawan you go to some European country
Do you apply from there and if it works, you ask people first you don't want to. Or you just go there, you're going there anyways, qualification and from very important.
Because actually, this is what happened to me two years ago, I was giving exactly the same talk about tight. And I was telling people about hedge. And I was saying, Allah, I hope that I go, I was realizing that I'm not going because the names were already announced a long time from Ramadan.
But it just happened that I went to Turkey. And they told me that your name is there, you have to apply. And they have only one day and Pamela, it just happened to me. So when a lot of ways, it will be easy. And sometimes No matter how much you try.
So you just try, that's all.
Don't feel bad. You don't have to borrow money, you don't have. I mean, yes, if you're borrowing money to buy a TV, if you're borrowing money to go somewhere, then you borrow money also to go for 100 years. But generally speaking, you don't have to do this. Some people actually take advantage of that. In my case, I used to do this, they say we are in need of money, we are average savings, disability deserves a cap from the beginning, if you are in need while you came here.
You have to be able to afford
now one another condition. Now human again, you may meet all these conditions. But there is another thing. You are a female, and you don't have any male to go with you in the past. Also, that was a hurdle, you couldn't do it. Now, the embassy the Saudi embassy is easing this condition. They used to stipulate that you have to be above 45. Or you have to be with a group of women. Now I heard that with the new Crown Prince. It's, it's easier.
I'm not sure. So generally speaking, can a woman perform act without any male, relative present husband or father or brother?
According to Eman Shafi, it's not a condition.
According to other scholars in
the US, it is a condition. And then this agreement is not
based on how to particular actually, that disagreement stems from the disagreement on traveling, generally speaking for a woman, whether it is
permissible for a woman to travel alone or not.
We in America, both of them said that actually what the prophet SAW said that meant with the restrictions about a woman traveling is the safety of the road.
As long as the road is safe, as long as there is no danger of her being alone, then she's permitted to try.
And in our time, most likely, this is the case in our time. So my advice when a sister asks, I don't have any relatives, and I'm not married, or my husband died or whatever. But I applied for him and my children can if I skip it now or I pass it, then most likely I wouldn't get it again. So can I go I will say is
if you can then yes.
you decided to go for hedge and
you want to know what should you do? What are the acts of hedge?
There are three types
fraud, meaning singular, you perform head to
head to Iran join you join Amara
and how do
you perform Umrah and Hajj it's similar to a lot of the only difference is intellectual determinate.
And this is what most people choose.
Again, who's going to see inshallah for hat?
Did you choose a package?
Like this one, they ask you Oh, no.
usually, you should tell or they should ask you for what reason. Whatever truck you have to sacrifice. So that costs a little bit more. It's not the luck now anyways, because the package is
are expensive, so adding 500 will not be making that much difference. When you go for happy frog you're only performing hajj.
That's what the companions recommended above accomplishment and it
recommended that people go only for Hajj. Meaning they don't perform, why they didn't want people to go only one time just to perform. That's they wanted the house of Allah to be always in habit. But in our time, that's not the case because it is actually happening all the time.
reasoning behind that is that when you go for Hajj and Umrah there is no reason for you to go again. But when you go for Hajj, or when you want to go again to perform, and people don't go at the same time, so people will go frequently. That's why their community, but the companions actually at the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they look what the prophet SAW Selim himself performed, and he performed around.
He performed the aroma and had, but without terminating the home. And that's not easy. Some groups are starting flying, actually, today is the last day of shower today is the 29th. Maybe tomorrow is the 30th. Maybe tomorrow is the first of the pack. So some groups are already starting traveling. So you have about 40 days, those 40 days you are in the state of a home, that's not easy.
It's very difficult.
But the prophet SAW Selim, that's what he performed. So the companions went along with that, however, he commanded them from Allah to terminate that.
So they made it what that meant.
And that's what most groups now do. they announce that we are doing the difference is what you're going there or everyone is going there. The difference is when you are going for too far, you don't have to perform. So it is recommended for you to perform.
Whether it is the first of the fact that it is the fifth of the kegel, whatever it is, you don't have to perform a lot. It is only sooner
or they do it anyways. However, when you go for the mentor, you have to because you have to perform rower and in Aurora, you have to do power, and you have to do something. So if you went for a frog on the hand, if you went there and the the cabin, musty was not that crowded, so you were able to perform for most people. That's what we do. Since we did go off. We didn't have to do it, but we did it anyways, we can do decide, which is supposed to be later, we can do the sizes we say can only be done after power. Number four, you cannot do it backwards. So since you did power, which is sooner, you can do decide which is a pillar. So on the day of read, you don't have to do decide again,
you're left only with awfully father, which is the pillar.
That's an option for people who go with hydro, most people who go late.
And this doesn't apply here because most groups they go very well. But most groups from from Gulf countries, they go there on the fifth of the data. So it's only a short time anyways, so many of them go for
Hajj. Again, most people don't do it because you have to stay in the state of Islam and you have to sacrifice you have to have the side with you.
So you need to have sacrificial animals with you. From here it's not an option you cannot take them on plane or buy a boat unless you have your own yacht or from their from the from the park You can also purchase and think that maybe that's an option. But most people go for
the Mustang, that's the term that is used literally to enjoy. You are enjoying this time between the time of your arrival to occur until the time of performing the hedge on the eighth or the ninth of the danger. You are enjoying that time of 30 days or 20 days or 10 days without having
to do that when you arrive whether it is next week or the week after or one week before the return. You do
You decide and then you terminate.
The NEA has to be made when you perform the job once you arrive for Cobra or rush okay. If you are going for a hotdog you make money or for a job
Because you are performing on
if you're not going for a run, you have to declare the beta.
If you are going for head only, you say the beta level.
So, you did the camera, which takes few hours or maybe sometimes a little bit more depending on the grounds,
sometimes less than an hour. So, you did the live he did decide he terminated,
you are allowed to do everything as if you are not there.
because of that, you are liable for the sacrificial end.
Usually they distribute coupons, you purchase them and
they do it
what happens then, you are wearing your normal clothes, you're not in the state of your art in your hotel or in your room, whether it is an asiya, or around the horizon until the eighth or the ninth of religion, most likely until the eighth, the eighth is called Yo.
on the eighth, they tell you, it is time now to start to reform again from where you are.
Now, when you start the run again you started with intention of work.
can repeat the same
after performing, you are liable for the sacrificial animal, but it will be done on the day of eating. You pay for that, and it will be done on the day. Even if you couldn't sacrifice there is an alternative outcome to it. I will I will explain. But once hatch comes now you declare your intention for hatch. So you did drama and you did.
And then we will talk about the actions of hedges. So for now, I hope the three types I'm only talking about the three types are claim fraud.
So you need to know which one you're going for. You're going for if you're going for a run or you're going for
it used to be a luxury for people who are able to choose more than one
not from here, but when you perform the
when you perform the harm the animals, they have to be with you.
Now there is an opinion says you just purchase them from them,
which is not easy, but you just purchase coupons they represent the number of animals or one or whatever the profits are my salon from Medina, he took with him 100 candidates,
he sacrificed 100 guns.
once you enter into hatch
for essential actions, killers, with without one of them, they had one to be valid.
The first one is the one
you cannot perform hide without
the second one is standing in alpha.
The third one is a lot of the follow up.
When is that that's on the day.
So if you say well, I didn't perform the last when I arrived, that was the first of the interval that was the 20th of the pattern. It doesn't count as the office that only counts as either the last so now
because you are doing
the pillar of hedge will be done on the day of or it could be delayed a few days. But that's the time of the day.
And after it the sun between a sofa and
those are the four pillars of missing one of them meaning your hedges incomplete and it has to be redone.
It was meant to be actually.
So we start with the
Which is the first pillar,
it is a pillar to have a shot
with that pillar, there are two conditions, the time and the place
the time, which is already fulfilled once Ramadan is over,
that's the time of headstones. Someone says I want to perform hajj and he went down, that's accepted. Someone says I want to perform hajj and he went
on the 25th of Ramadan. And he made the Nation of Islam and the indigenous metronome. That's before that, just like when you pray before the time of Hajj starts once Ramadan is over, because the monks have had our show what other antonija so anytime of them, you can make the intention for Hajj.
That's the time, the place
you have to perform the ashram from those places.
What are those places there is one place for the people of Medina.
for people of
now most people they don't perform from there, they go to Robin. And Jafar is deserted place. It's empty.
from the region of Gulf countries and those who are coming from East that is
your apart. That's the closest one.
The people of Yemen
and then the final one for the people of Iraq that already
the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he pointed those places where you cannot cross them without performing.
You cross them without performing the harm you perform the harm. So you did the pillar, but you did it from a different place so you're liable for sacrifice.
This is these are the places this is my cup.
This is a guy that's near
this is Robin near that's where people from Assam they
on a Saturday and it's called a sale it can be for people of
the Gulf countries or the Gulf countries, they perform it
and then that elk for people
this is another map
it shows now most people most people especially from here, what will be their path because you are flying.
You are flying now I don't know how to find to gender first or to Medina first.
So if you're not going to Medina, you see this is Medina
from Medina because you stayed there from a dinner you're going to come to Makkah directly
and therefore dude may not be here even though you're coming from Asia, but you went there first because the products are selling
places for the people are coming for hedge well even after an intermediary in and they are the places for people from a different place who came to that place. We're not from Medina, but we went there first so performed around from the dinner.
So that's difficult for people of Medina, the farthest one because between Medina and Mecca roughly 420 kilometers
now the rest you are flying over and you're going to give them as you see a Jetta to most scholars it is inside within the vehicle.
So therefore, you cannot land
and you didn't perform.
There is an opinion actually say is no, just that is
you arrived and that can be done out there. I don't want to confuse you. I mean,
the easiest way just go with a majority because that's what most groups do. They make the announcements. When you are in the plane, they say that we are now coming to the main part.
So you should be ready
And we have here is the thing they found is not just by the clothes,
they found his body intention with your intention. Now I can take off my clothes and put on two towels or nothing.
So you say I want to prepare myself from you from Kuala Lumpur, I will change my clothes, that's fine. But the way you do it once you are parallel to that, when you come across the art, that's when you perform the at home with your intention. Now,
there are requirements for
first, as I told you the time and the place.
This is the time we already started the time and the place, these are the places and for us, most of us the place will be the plane. And
you need to be ready because if you are lying on entering the toilet in the plane, then it will be chaotic because you have 300 passengers and everyone wants to enter, you will wait and we'll probably land and you didn't do it. So if you want to do it, do it beforehand.
Which is actually the
Yeah, flying over there come from Malaysia here, they do the term. So when you are turning almost here,
it's just few minutes before landing,
or sometimes half an hour if they are making a circle.
That's what they are.
Now, if you are coming from here, most likely you are coming by bus. So they
tell the passengers we are stopping everybody goes down, you go to pray. And we must do. And it is recommended to perform to like you take a shower and you perform Torah.
Even with this still you're not in the state of Islam because you didn't declare the intention. The Sunnah of the prophet SAW Allah is to declare the intention. And when you are already moving. So when everybody comes back to the bus, and the bus starts moving, that's when you make the intention.
You already pray, you already performed the shower you already Put on your coat of Iran. But once the bus stops moving, that's the sooner you make the intention for
now, if you're fine, then once they say you already also you got yourself ready. You change the rules. You have the shower, if you're good, you're waiting. So once they say we are passing the baton, now you make the decision.
Most people especially for men, and women, it's different because their clothes, they don't need to change them. But for men, you cannot wear anything underneath the towel, no underwear, no nothing. So it has to be only $2. Most people, that's what they do. And this is not correct. You show your right shoulder once you start to power.
Not when you perform the harm when you perform the account. That's how it should be.
It's covering. Why because at the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he recommended the companions to show their shoulders when they started the doors. So the godfather of Quraysh would see that they are still strong, because the rumor was that Medina weaken them.
And it became so after that, everyone who performs it wrong It is so now that's what what is called the back of the bag, meaning you show the right shoulder. So you put the arm underneath and you do it like that. But that's only when we perform the power. When you make the crown, you just cover yourself like this. Now another thing
in wearing these clothes, because some people they have bottles and with clips. Now what's the difference between this and wearing a shirt?
I will talk about it.
So, for crossing those places that I showed you, without performing the harm, then there is a sacrifice.
Why because you violated awaji Why did you miss what you had to perform the harm from the location and you did it. You cross it
But what if you were able to come back?
He said, Okay, I will go back, you go back, you perform the harm there is nothing.
What if someone, now this is this does not apply to ask, but what if someone lives within that circle, because that area is big. Like he's only 200 kilometers from attack is not 400 kilometers, is nearer than the main path,
then from his house, just like the people of America, people are,
when they perform hajj, they don't have to go anywhere from their house. That's why you become like the people of Africa. When you go there, when you already performed on them, they tell you it's time, it's days.
So from the hotel, from your room, you may pay attention for
one exception to all of them. Again, this doesn't apply to us. When someone frequently goes
we have some students who are pilots.
And if they have weekly trip,
and he lands in general, since let's say he is within a month according to the opinion of the majority, and the process of saying whoever comes across the path has to perform.
So does he have to perform a ham? No, he's not even going there. But what if you are going there like the drivers, even the diversity scholars in general agreed that you don't need to perform.
you vote every day. There are bus drivers, taxi drivers. They pick people from Mecca to Medina, vice versa. They are crossing the heart every time they cross the heart Do they have to perform and how long only when they want to perform hadn't on a
limb and Angela for him wants to perform head trauma. So if you go frequently, you don't have to
