wa salatu salam ala Ashura, Olympia
wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Manuela.
my dear brothers and sisters and elders Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Alhamdulillah. We are in the first 10 days of the ledger.
And today as we stand here in India, the people in the Hejaz are preparing to go to alpha tomorrow.
They are in Minot today and inshallah they will go to alpha tomorrow.
And in case I forget, just remind me to explain the issue of the fast for the oval RFID there's confusion about that here. So we'll explain that in shall.
But people are going in sha Allah to make Hajj and that's why I thought it's a good idea for us to recall and reflect on the meaning of Hajj, what is this unique form of worship that Allah subhanho wa Taala has decreed and blessed us with?
And why is it important, both for those who are actually performing hajj as well as for those who are not in alpha but they are here in India or they are in America or in Australia or whichever place they are in?
Allah subhanaw taala said I will learn him in a shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim in WA etc to the arena seilala Db berkata Mobile aka wahoo the Lila I mean, he
he brought him woman de la

Verily, the first house of worship appointed for mankind was that at Makkah, full of blessing and a guidance for Allah Al amin, for all of mankind and jinn. in it are manifest signs. For example, the maqam Ibrahim, whoever enters it, he attained security and Hajj to the house is a duty that mankind owes to Allah subhanho wa Taala those who can afford to make the pilgrimage But whosoever disbelieves then he is a disbeliever of Allah, then Allah does not stand in need of any of the island mean Allah subhanho data is a Venetian Hamid
I want to remind myself and you that the Hajj is the story of Ibrahim alayhis salam. It is the story of the very essence of Islam. It is the story of the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala orders without question. Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this about his holy Libra him Allah is Allah is Allah la hora Boku wa sallam, Allah Aslam. toliara bilad I mean, Allah said, When his Rob said to him submit, he said, I have submitted to the rubber. I mean, think about this, just this one is enough for our EDA, Allah subhanaw taala saying he said to his colleagues, he said to his app, he said to his Abraham, Alexa, submit, obey, what did you say?
As long as I obey
no arguments, no discussion, no point of saying well you know what, this particular thing which you are telling me is fine, I will do that but the other one I got to think about it the other one well, you know, it doesn't look so nice among the people today because they don't like people with beard for example.
No, no arguments.
Allah Allah horombo Aslam Allah Islam to
because even ma Salam understand who is most important, even la Salam understand who he is going to return to, even when a Salam knows that all my friends and so on and so forth and all my fans are not going to be with me. They will not even be with me in this world. Forget about the next word.
To the first and foremost purpose of Hajj is to remind this, that it is this unquestioning submission to the orders of Allah subhanho wa Taala which is demanded of the Muslim. This is what is demanded of all people, and it is expected especially of those who call themselves Muslim. How can we justify calling ourselves more
slim, if we do not submit to Allah subhanho wa Taala unconditionally,
the Hajj therefore, whether we are in hajj or whether we are living somewhere else in the world during this period of the hijab is a reminder for us to make Toba and to renew our allegiance to Allah subhanho wa Taala and what is the allegiance to Allah subhanho wa Taala hora boho a slim Kala Aslam tulip Bill alameen. This is what is expected this is what is the allegiance that when Allah said submit I say I submit
it is for this reason that the Hajj has a uniform and what is the uniform of the hatch? It is the Haram the firearm is neither comfortable nor is it graceful nor is it fashionable nor is it elegant. But there is nothing more holy than the during the days or hatch.
If the Hajji no matter how devoted he is to Allah subhanaw taala No matter how much he loves Allah subhanaw taala if he does not wear the Haram, his Hajj is not valid.
There is no question of does it make sense? Is it logical? Is it modern? Does it conform to whatever the world likes or dislike, Do I look good in it?
Makes no difference. If you're a ROM You look like a monkey. It doesn't matter. If you don't wear the hair on your head is not accepted. And if you were the ham you who look like a monkey the Haram is given agenda by Allah subhanaw taala
makes no difference.
When the man is wearing a Haram is not wearing a Haram in order to look good or not to look good. He's wearing haram only one reason which is that Allah subhanho wa Taala ordered him to do so.
And he's doing it to please Allah subhanaw taala every rochen of Hajj is a lesson for the rest of our lives. What do we do then? Therefore, when we are outside of Hajj, what do we do with about other orders of Allah subhanaw taala
starting with the clothing,
but going on to all the other orders of Allah subhanaw taala when there is a hookup of Allah subhanaw taala Avi thinking, well is hokum is there but or am I saying this is the home of Allah subhanho wa Taala. As far as I'm concerned, that's the end of the story. I will do it. Whether people are proof whether people don't approve makes no difference, makes absolutely no difference.
The purpose of the Hajj is to be a lesson to us for the rest of our lives.
My brothers and sisters, I want to remind you and myself,
that it is the position of the slave to submit to the master. The joy of the slave lies in what is pleasing to the master. What the slave loves is what the master likes, what the slave dislikes, is what the master dislikes, the slave has no likes and dislikes of his own. The slave has no desires of his own. The only purpose of a slave is to fulfill the purpose of his master. There is a famous story about I asked who was the slave of Muhammad Allah has no he.
And my mother has never used to like and he used to love is very much and a lot of people were very jealous of us. So they wanted they asked bamboo they said Why do you love this man so much?
So as I will show you remember the last time he said I will show you
the next day in the court. He gave all the court years all his ministers and I as as was also a minister of his he gave them all
goblets very expensive crystal goblets.
And they were all holding these goblets very, very expensive, very valuable. They were holding this garbage in their head.
And then they said, drop it.
And nobody dropped that goblet, except as the moment my mother said drop it as dropped it to the governor shattered. So people thought well, you know, now is goose is cooked because he just smashed something which is so valuable.
So they asked him They said I would you do see why I love so much. They said we don't we don't understand. He said because he does what I tell him to do.
So they asked us they said How come you broke this thing which is so valuable?
And the answer is an answer for us. I said I had two choices.
To break the goblets which is valuable, or to break the command of my Lodge, which is even more valuable.
I chose not to break the command of biking
And I broke the goblet.
If a man can do that for a king, what must we do for our Creator? Think about that. Just think about that. They asked him, they said, Don't you know the value of this thing with your blog? He says, I know the value of that thing. But I also know the value of the commander of Iraq.
I asked myself and asked you seriously answer this question for yourself, or via class people sit down and reflect on this? What is the value that you have? What is the value that I have for the command of the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wasallam? What is the value that you and I have for the command of Allah? subhanho wa Taala? I mean, seriously, answer this question for yourself, you're not going to tell me or anyone else about it. But ask yourself because one day, you will have to answer this to Allah subhanaw taala what is the value of that?
True Value I'm not talking about you know, we all good at lip service.
Not talking about that true value in the heart, because true value in the heart is visible through actions. I cannot say I value the order of my robe. But I don't pray. I cannot say I value the order of my IRA but I pray but when I pray, I am lazy or I'm delaying my Salah or I'm not doing it on time or doing something with it. No, I cannot say I value the tsunamis Allah Allah, I value the orders and commands of Nabi sallallahu sallam, but then I do not follow him sooner.
This is like this is straightforward line. So we have to ask ourselves, what is the value that we have?
The era also has rules.
There are things that the person is allowed to do and things that he if he does, then he is fined heavily. While in the ashram, the Hajji is reminded that his total and only focus is towards Allah subhanaw taala. And so his entire identity and his being is seen in that light as devotion to Allah subhanho wa Taala and is considered worship. When the heart he has put on our arm and when he is going in hajj, even if he's sleeping, that sleep counts as worship.
You can tell me sleeping, but that sleep is worship is a bother, he's eating his Avada he's walking his Avada he's sitting is about why because he has chosen to obey Allah subhanho wa Taala
and that's why he has to before he puts on the RAM. He has debates and he has to make although and he has to make to Raka Salah before he makes the knee of Iran. It is demanded of the Hajji that he first submits himself and puts his head in sojos before he is even permitted to make the Nia for a while.
He shows his submission to Allah subhanho wa Taala Yara Do I have your permission to make this a ROM and to make this Hajj
and then he puts on the ROM and he
makes the Nia for Hajj.
My brothers sisters in hajj also as in Ramadan, think about this, we are prohibited even from what is otherwise lawful. While we are in the state of that a Baba in Ramadan. Eating and drinking of halal things is lawful. And if you eat and drink those things and make sure about Allah subhanaw taala This is a bother. But during Ramadan and during fasting from Daybreak to sunset, we are prohibited from eating and drinking and the company of our wives and husbands even though they are gize. Why? To reinforce the fact that the hokum of Allah subhanho wa Taala is to be obeyed without question without arguments, and without any form of delay. The same thing applies in hajj, the soul
of a Haram.
We are prohibited from that which is lawful, why not because Allah subhanaw taala gets some great pleasure from forcing us to do this or that it is for our own reminder to say that I am subject to Allah subhanho wa Taala not only when I'm fasting in Ramadan, not only when I'm wearing the harem of Hutch, but for every minute and moment of my life until the last minute of my life. I am submit I am subject and I submit to the same Rob because the same Rob is my Rob,
whether I'm in haram or out of Iran, and that is the reason why this is very important. And that's the reason why we are reminded this again and again, that there are there may be for example, what Allah subhanaw taala has made lawful, there may be social and moral and health and psychological and sociological and political and god knows what benefits from it. But that's not the reason why you are doing that. You are doing that only and only because this is the home of Allah subhanaw taala the Nia the day of fasting is not to lose weight. The Nia Hajj is not
To You know, walk six kilometers the idea that Nia is to please Allah subhanho wa Taala that's the reason you are doing it, irrespective of what other benefits that might be from that. So also with, with with Salah, why do we make Salah we make Salah in order to connect with Allah subhanho wa Taala because this is our connection to Allah subhanho wa Taala we make Salah to speak to Allah, we make Salah to listen to what Allah has to say to us so that we can continue and do that work once we are outside of Salah. There is no other reason for before doing Salah. So Hydra reminds us and
that our identity and our focus does not change when we are out of a ham. The identity is the identity of Islam. The focus is the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala whether we are an Arab or not, these days remind us of this so that we still draw our identity from the obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala we are Muslim, we are proud and confident to be called Muslim. We would like to look and act like Muslims. We would like to be recognized as Muslims in the world, because we want the Malacca to recognize as Muslims when they come to take our soul, yes or no. You don't want the Malacca to be in doubt right.
So we have to show this in our whole life. And say I want to look and walk and act and talk like a Muslim so that I am recognized as a Muslim and the Malacca will recognize me when they see me. The first ritual of Hajj as soon as you put your Haram is to make terracotta Salah as I said this is for the issue of Nia and then we submit to Allah subhanaw taala in prostration in salute and then we say that in this position of ultimate surrender, think of the such that Allah subhanaw taala said was Jude walk turriff Allah said make Sudan come close to me. As soon as I said upset the slave is the closest to Allah when he is in the state of sudo. Think about the such that what is the such data
such that is the ultimate gesture. It's the gesture of ultimate submission. It's a just seven your hands and feet and knees and your forehead and your nose are on the ground. You cannot even see what is there around you. You can't you are looking at the ground. You can't even see what is around you. If someone wants to attack you when you are in such that they can attack you. If someone wants to chop off your head he can do that. That's the reason why the such die is haram to anyone other than Allah subhanaw taala to submit yourself to anyone other than Allah subhanho wa Taala to this degree is haram.
It is haram it's private, because Allah subhanaw taala Does not he made he made he gave us a car, he gave us dignity and we are not permitted to, to submit and to give away this dignity to anyone other than the one who gave it to us. So we make sense the only and only to Allah subhanaw taala we do not sacrifice our dignity to anybody else. I'm not saying be respectful, for example, to parents and to elders and so on is highly recommended. And it is for but there's a difference between being respectful and completely, you know, wiping out your dignity by falling at somebody's feet or touching people's feet or making such that to people in the real life when they do we this is not
permitted as far as Islam is concerned. So we have we must be very, very clear about this. Allah subhanaw taala saying what should walk away because when you submit to Allah subhanaw taala Allah subhanho wa Taala draws you close to him. We know the whole the Haji that makes the wife and he makes a wish bring allow alive the Sunnah of Ibrahim alayhi salam, the whole story of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and his wife, our mother hydrolase salah and his son Israel alayhis salam, it's the whole family as if Allah subhanaw taala call your MLA Salam kana kana Akana oma. He said even MLA Salam is Yama by himself.
Who are the followers wherever is Allah? Nobody, just his immediate family. He had no mother no people love Ibrahim
Musa Salama, the huge oma. Allah subhanaw taala said my name is Omar by himself.
Allah Subhana Allah May Allah Allah wa sallam, he said, You are the oma, you are from the middle of the euro him.
What was it about this man? One man
and I loved him so much. Why?
The whole story of his life Jesus why
he takes his wife Think about this. I'm talking about this whole you know our concept today of obeying Allah subhanaw taala orders that which pleases us that which appears to be within courts are reasonable to our stupid brains, which have got you know, fried by watching too much television or by playing too many computer games or by God knows what.
You lost our ability to think we don't know who is important who is not important. We can we get confused between the orders of Allah subhanaw taala and what people like and dislike.
See the story of Abraham Allah
he worships Allah subhanho wa Taala. He asked Allah subhanaw taala for a for an air for a son.
And at the age of eight years, Allah subhanaw taala gives him a son. And then when that kid is a few months old, few months old, he still nursing
Allah subhanaw taala does his wife go and leave him in this valley?
So what is the primary Salam do they say Allah? You know what, why don't I also go and settle they're
not disobeying you but you know?
Right. So at least let me explain to my wife and son why I'm doing this.
Now let's be reasonable, at least I should explain to them.
Does he do all this? Nothing. Allah said, Go leave them. He starts walking.
You will have an Islam. So Alhaji hijra the story of Ibrahim alayhis salam is a primal Islamism his whole life.
He would have walked the earth man.
He walked the earth, from Iraq from Babylon and he walked from there and he went to Philistine and he walked to Makkah and he walked back to Varanasi and he walked back to Mark, can you walk back to Valentina. So while I mean he walked and he walked in, he walked.
He went to Egypt.
mohajir his whole life doing hijra for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala.
The name of rival Islam?
And who was with him? Which army? Which for nothing, one little family?
husband, wife. And when agile Islam after Egypt came to wives, to children,
maybe some animals, maybe a few serve, and that's it.
So Allah says go Liga wife. So what does he do? He goes, just three of them. husband, wife,
newborn baby few months old.
takes him, takes them to this valley. leaves them there.
Some dates, a small leather bag of water.
And then what does he do? He turns around and walks away,
turns around and walks away.
Think about that. What? What is this?
He doesn't say anything. He doesn't tell them. Why are you here? What are you supposed to do? Nothing. And whatsoever.
Now see the wife.
Obviously, like she's human. So she asked you where are you going? Wow. Why we love to hear. It doesn't say anything. That's broken promise Rob, does not give an explanation doesn't say why he
keeps walking. So she understands. This is the whole issue of thermea. This is the whole issue of tarbiyah. She understands she knows what's happening. She is as connected to Allah as he as he is. So she knows what is happening. So she says, Is this the Hakama era?
Even when Islam does not even turn around and say yes, he just nods his head.
She says then go.
He says go, if he ordered us to be brought here and left here, then he will not allow us to perish.
then she decides she's going to see from heel to heel to see who is there and who's not there and all that.
And then we know the Jayaram come and so on and so forth the whole story of how the plays got settled. We know the story of zum zum.
When she makes tacos and Allah subhanaw taala What does Allah do?
Think about this, Allah subhanaw taala could have ordered a spring. Allah subhanaw taala could have guided her to a spring which was already there.
Allah subhanaw taala sends jubril A Salah
it doesn't send anyone less than Hebrew religion.
Allah subhanaw taala sends gibreel Allah His salam to do what to come and go when
Allah says Angeles
is as they will get tired.
And then what does Allah do? Allah subhanho wa Taala makes this side of hydrolase Salam rakuen of Hajj and Amara if someone goes and says I will do a laugh but I will not make say his Amara is not accepted his Hajj is not accepted.
If a man says Why must I run by between Safa and Marwa I mean that's a historical thing she did it there was a reason What's the reason for me to do it.
The reason for you to do it is because you have ordered you to do it
and you don't need any reason bigger than that.
Allah subhanaw taala sent his nabee the mamula ambia
to go and repeat the action
His own mother
And Allah made this a bad. Allah subhanaw taala made it a place for the Ebola virus.
she's bringing up this little boy

He's not on the scene. We are literally of the mother. He's bringing up this little boy and Allah subhanaw taala even tells us how old the boy was.
Allah subhanaw taala said, For Lama Bulava Moussa Kalia niara filmen Ania Ania
Ma tomar Saturday dooney sha Allah Who me and I saw it in a Zed when he was old enough to walk with his father.
Unless even telling us how old the boy was, when he was old enough to walk with his father means how will tell me Is he 20 years old.
When he's just old enough to walk with his father, Allah Allah, maybe he's four years old, five years old, eight years old, Allah knows best, but he's a little kid.
Allah subhanaw taala even when like the whole life is test his whole life his tests, test after test after test.
When that little kid is that big First of all, when he is a very still nursing go and leave him in the in the desert, when he's just that big. The age when parents take delight from seeing little kids running around and so on and so forth. Allah said, sacrificing for me

He's showing him a dream. We know the dreams of ambia Rv but ambia are also insane they are also human beings.
He shows him a dream.

He says, Oh my son, I have seen in my dream that I am slaughtering you, that I am sacrificing you to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And then what does he say to his son? My brothers and sisters, ask in your hearts look in your hearts. Because that is what is asking his son to do you know what he's saying? funzone ma?

Or do you see yourself standing in the opposition to the enemy's Allah solemn? Do you see yourself standing there and saying Yes, that's right. That is your opinion, but I also have an opinion.

when they had both submitted themselves to the will of Allah, and he had laid him prostrate on his forehead or on his side. Now think about that. Why is he putting him on his forehead?
When you are slaughtering you put flat on your back.
We know from the hottie service our service Allah salam, the overseeded have said that is why the a salon told his father he said you cannot you will not be able to slaughter me if you see my face. So put me on my on my face down or put me on the side
so that you can carry out the command of Allah subhanaw taala
my brothers and sisters I remind you don't just listen to stories so Allah don't just listen to stories. Think about them, reflect on them sit down peacefully and say this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling me this story is not entertainment, His story is not for you to shed a few tears. This story is not for us to say oh Mashallah, Mashallah, what and no tomorrow I will go and slaughter a sheep or something. This story is for us to reflect
and think where am I? Where am I compared to this? Because why is Allah subhanaw taala mentioning the stories because the stories are the standards.
The stories are the standards. These are the standards on which you and I will be judged.
Make no mistake, make no mistake.
These are the standards on which we will be judged. Where do we stand with respect to these standards?
Even Mrs. lm is doing his best to cut his knife doesn't cut sharpens the knife cuts again knife doesn't cut his son says stabbed with a knife step with the point of the knife. He primary Salam stands with the point of the knife and the knife goes backwards into the handle.
Even if nslm takes and throws the knife down on the ground, why is he angry? Why is he angry? Why is he not saying I'll handle a knife can't cut I'm safe.
Why is he angry? He's saying this thing is not letting me carry out the order of by Rob.
he slams the knife on the ground and the movers have said that a voice came from the knife and the knife said yeah Abraham, do I obey you or do I obey Europe?
He said you are trying to cut your rubbish saying Do not cut
and Allah subhanaw taala said we sent for him Ophelia
gibberella A Sam came with a ram and the same knife which could not cut the tender skin of our little boy went through the skin and hair and an pelt of the ram without a problem.
What is this legacy of Ibrahim alayhis salam, my brothers and sisters, the legacy of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam is obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala
The legacy of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam is to obey is to obey Allah subhanaw taala.
And what is the wages of this obedience?
When they pass these tests, Allah subhanaw taala then chose the father and son to build his house.
Remember, that's why when we teach the Quran, the Tafseer and so on and so forth Allah Allah May Allah give us the opportunity to teach this the way we want to teach it in the sidebars Academy MC da.
We must read the history of the world at the time. When you are reading the Tafseer of the art of the Quran read the history of the world at the time, which were the civilizations which were there in the world, is it that Allah subhanaw taala had no one else except for this father and son to build his house. There were no other kings in the world. There were no there were no civilizations, there were no armies there was no gold, no silver, no workers, no laborers.
Allah could not have chosen any of the of the great tribes and the great kings and so on so forth to build his house.
Why does he pick
Because in the eyes of Allah subhanaw taala all the rest of this is trash. It's trash, it's rubbish.
It's rubbish. What has value with Allah is obedience to Him.
So Allah subhanaw taala said when he chose them,
why is Baba and Ali Ibrahim hamaca and LBT Allah to shirak be shy, water here by de la Paul in our call me in our case.
Allah says build the house and then clean it and keep it for the people who make a calf and make tawaf and who stand there and Roku and sudo and worship analysis was in Venezuela Jia to Korea and voila colada Wada colada Maria Tina mean coup de fujinami por
Allah does that give the other watch, you will have a disaster the Arab is only me and my son and my family.
I give her that what I do is that listen, Allah subhanaw taala says that's not your job to give the other words and we will send them
and they will come from the mountain passes.
And through the deep valleys and lean camels.
Today is one of the reasons them
from every corner of the globe soheila every corner of the globe. Some of them drive. They drive in trucks. They have a container truck they build a platform in them in the in between to divide the container truck on top is one platform below is one platform. They cut little windows on the sides. And they drive from Tajikistan.
go look at the map when you go home.
They drive country border after border country after country, war zones, all kinds of things that come into
I'm not talking about people like us, Angela wala is blessed and hamdulillah we just got a flight and we go and five days we make Hajj and we come back. No, I'm talking about the people.
I'm not saying we don't love Allah, of course we love all our beloved Miss Swami deals because of them that we
are here and we get to go.
I talk about myself alone. I'm not talking about us. But I see a huge, huge, huge difference
between my love of Allah
and the love of Allah for somebody who will take his family
and put his own life and the life of his family in danger, only to go and make the life
of the house of Allah. And he knows that he's probably never going to do that. Again in his life.
He's doing it only once, because that's all he can afford.
And he's traveling months together. no air conditioning, no nothing. They stop in the night they cook food, they wash clothes, they hang them to dry. When you go at the time of Hajj, go to Machu the Ayesha go and see some of those trucks. So Allah Gee,
I was too old when I went and saw that.
I thought to myself that if I had seen that in my 20s I would have gone and done that one journey with one of them.
Just to do it,
I would have done that one journey was one of them.
So take me with you.
I want to taste the sweetness of that Salah in the desert
and in the step is under pompous
In the Central Asian grasslands
how're to taste the sweetness of Salah. What is the sweetness of Salah of those who judge
who are putting their own life and and in danger? Because there are tribes and there are bandits and there are highway robbers and they are war zones and all kinds of things. And these people that travel with their wives and their children, everybody
I believe that compared to me and my love for Allah, my love for Allah is like a grain of sand on a beach and their love for Allah is like a mountain.
May Allah bless them and protect them.
And may Allah accept their hunch
And may Allah accept our Hajj because there are those in the oma Bahama Salah Salah
who do not think twice who do not think twice about obeying Allah subhanaw taala.
brothers sisters, this Dean came to us.
This Dean came to us and this Dean came to us because of the efforts of people far better than us. This Dean came to us and it remains protected today.
Because of the efforts of people who are far superior to us,
it is our job it is our duty. It is our responsibility
to continue to protect this deal. And not to spoil this thing by introducing our own whims and fancies and our own desires into the outcome of Allah subhanaw taala.
It is our responsibility is a sacred responsibility.
And that's why when the Hejaz go to alpha, remember your Buddha going from 1000s of miles away some of them
to the masjid al haram were one Salah the value and the reward for one Salah in Al Masjid al Haram is 100,000 silhouettes
the reward for one hat the budget, the reward is 100,000 Salawat don't give me tissues if you see my tears flowing to the flowing of tears the sign of the Rama of Allah subhanaw taala I see a lot of your tears flowing Alhamdulillah Allah subhanho wa sallam said the one whose eye weeps and the one whose eyes stay awake in the stays awake in guarding the boundaries of Islam, Allah subhanaw taala will make the fire of Johanna haram on this. The Sahaba used to take their tears and spread them all over the face and all over the body.
Don't give tissues we don't want tissues. We want tears.
Somebody told me you should wear a bulletproof vest because of the kinds of footballs you will give them with somebody one day will shoot you.
So I said why should I wear a bulletproof vest when I pray for a bullet
I don't pray I don't pray for a bulletproof vest.
Get your get your priorities straight.
My brothers sisters.
Allah subhanaw taala raised dimentional Ibrahim on his violin a Salah. And he raised the mention of their sacrifice. So that until the day of judgment as long as there is a Muslim somewhere in the world, he will sacrifice an animal for the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
In memory of the Nabi of Allah, the ambia of Allah Abraham and Ishmael, Allah is Allah.
Allah subhana wa Taala
reminds us by the sacrifice, that sometimes submitting to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala is inconvenient.
Sometimes it is politically incorrect. Sometimes it goes against our own personal desires.
Sometimes it goes against what we like and what we dislike.
But why do we still do it? Because it is the will of Allah
and the will of Allah is above all of these things.
So remember when they stand in alpha, the reward for praying and mercy ROM is 100,000 Salawat.
The reward for one salah and Mahara is 100,000 Salawat in any other Masjid.
But on the day of arafah in hajj, on the ninth of the ledger,
the best thing that a human being can do is not to pray in Matura not even to make top of the Kaaba but to be standing in arafa with his hands raised his head bear in the sun, asking Allah subhana wa Taala for his mercy and for his blessing.
So lasala Sallam said there is nothing better than what I and all the ambia have said when we went to arafa and that is La la la la vida Whoa, la sharika lahu la mercola Hola, Hamed, wahoo Allah, Alicia de.
So why do you leave a place which will give you 100,000 times the reward to go in a place which is some somewhere else, because it is the home of Allah, over and over and over this is being reinforced. And then
tomorrow night when it is evening,
when it is time for mcgarrybowen they are still in alpha will they pray Maghrib and not know,
even though it is the hope of Allah subhanaw taala when the time kosaka what do you do pray,
but you don't pray Naropa Why? Because the hook of Allah subhanaw taala supersedes the other gender.
And this is the principle of the Sharia. A specific order supersedes the General Order.
So they will go to most dairy farms, they will combine the salads, and they will pray in Missouri.
And then the following day, they will come to Mina, and they will make the sacrifice and they will shave their heads and they will come out of Iran. And also de la Sallam said that when the Haji has done all of this, when he comes out of Iran.
What is the reward for him? That he is as if he was born that day from the womb of his mother.
He is completely free from all sin whatsoever washed clean.
We ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept the Hajj of all the all the judge who are there. And these delight Alhamdulillah Ramadan? I mean, I think I was thought I was counting yesterday that about 10 people have from our budget. There are about 10 Muslims from our budget, what do we have ShangriLa May Allah subhanaw taala accept all the Hajj, and melasma they'll accept all their drawers, and melasma Tara, give them and reward them in keeping with his majesty and grace. And when they return May Allah subhanaw taala make them examples of Muslims for the rest of the world to follow. May Allah make them imams of the Muslim mean, so that they and their children and their offspring and
their families become sources of guidance and beacons of guidance for the rest of the world wherever they may be.
As well as Allison said, there is no day on which Allah frees more of his slaves from fire than the day of arafah. And he and he verily draws near and he boasts to the angels the MA Caribbean of Allah Subhan Allah and Allah subhanaw taala says to the angels, look at my slaves who have come to me disabled and dusty.
Allah subhanaw taala shows the angel see my sleeves, see how they are asking me and I will give them whatever they ask I will give them We ask Allah subhanaw taala to give and to give until we are tired of receiving so I mean, many of us 100 of you have done hygiene, at least by experience in our office. We've got the whole day to bake.
But you know half an hour after making dua, I'm thinking what should I ask for?
I suppose I asked for it again, maybe one hour after that.
We are dry.
We don't even know what to ask for is only one hour you got another seven hours.
The treasures of Allah subhanaw taala unlimited.
We don't have the power to take from those treasures. We ask Allah subhanaw taala give us this power.
Our brothers and sisters,
the last of it.
the UK well
above the alano said
that also Li salatu salam said, Whoever performs Hajj for Allah's pleasure, and does not and maintains all the provisions of the Haram and does not do evil and since then he will return after Hajj free from all sins as if he was born and knew that he as if he was born that particular day,
Abdullah bin Mubarak rajala that he said, I went to Sofia on the day of arafah.
And so we are even though Vienna was sitting,
and he was his hand lap and he was making dark. So I asked him he said Who is the worst of the people who is here in alpha?
jazz, he said who isn't the worst state
and Soviet era said the one who believes that his Rob will not forgive him.
He said who isn't the worst debt? He said the one who believes that his Rob will not forgive him. Do you see the the the benefit of the ram of Allah subhanaw taala to believe that Allah will not forgive you schofer
Insha Allah Allah Subhana Allah will forgive us. So let us make a Nia and make Toba. Now right now make Toba and say from this moment onwards I will not disobey Allah subhanho wa Taala no matter what yes

May Allah give you open your hearts to his love. May Allah fill your heart with his nor May Allah illuminate your faces with his note, may Allah subhanaw taala accept your door when your hands are raised and do me Allah accept every door before your hands come down. When you are in such that May Allah keep you close to him. And may Allah invented you in that stage when you are out of touch that may Allah bless you and your wives and
your children. And may Allah subhanaw taala fill your home with Baraka May Allah subhanaw taala remove all fears from you may Allah subhanho wa Taala lessons from you may Allah subhanaw taala remove all infirmities from you. May Allah subhanaw taala give you a long life, full of health full of Eman full of obedience to Him and keep you in a state of perfect health. When it is time until the time for you to go comes and when the time for you to go comes May Allah take your life in a state of you're in a state of watch in the in the land of arafah.
Take your life in that state in a state or in a state of Salah in a state of sajida was Allah Allah Karim while Allah He was savage might be Rama Tikka hamara he made? while I'm doing
I want to clarify one issue before because it's a source of confusion. People always ask this question, when should we fast when it is yamaraja? Because it is yamaraja in Saudi Arabia tomorrow, whereas the ninth of will he here will be on Sunday. So should we fast tomorrow? Or should we fast Sunday? quiz answer first of all, you should fast and you should have fasted the first 10 days all the days because these were these were the best days of the year. Why are you not fasting if you're not fasting for God's sake?
So start fasting from tomorrow and your your problem was solved anyway. Right? Do that. Answer specific answer the question the Yeoman arafa is the name of the ninth of the ledger.
It does not have anything to do with who's standing in alpha was not selling in alpha. It is then like y'all will Ashura what is Russia,
which is Russia. The 10th of Muharram it's the name of the day. So whether somebody is standing or not, is not is immaterial. You fast on the ninth of June.
For example, if you are living in Australia, by the time it is ninth of the ledger, it is already eighth in Saudi Arabia. So what are you gonna do? You want to fast on the sixth of June and call it yamaraja?
No, if you are living in South America,
it will be the second day of the Ayahuasca shift, by the time it is ninth of January bliss. So what you're going to do, you're going to fast on the 13th of Ganesha because it's something a lot of you know, so don't don't get into these confusions. Yamanaka fasting is under 9000. He, whichever country you're living in, when it is ninth of Malaysia, you fast on that. And as I said before, that what you and I should do is fast all these days. And if you haven't fasted till today, no problem. Tomorrow is another day next to her fast tomorrow and fast until the day of eat, may Allah subhanaw taala accept your fasting and May Allah subhanaw taala fill your life with no more and give you the
reward of fasting all the 10 days even if you have not fasted for them. I am famous for making all these drugs may Allah accept them Allah did not put a limit on what was what why should I put a limit was Allah Allah will carry while he was happy.
