Episode Notes

Performing Hajj

May Allah allow those who haven’t gone on Hajj to go and those who have gone to go again and May Allah grant the Hujaaj Hajj Mabroor.

“Verily the first house of worship for mankind was that of Bakkah (Makkah)…”
As the hujaaj get ready for hajj we need to remember what is intended by the Hajj.
The story of Ibrahim (as), the essence of Islam – complete submission to Allah without question, argument or doubt.
Hajj is a reminder to submit ourselves to Allah without question, obey Allah’s orders.
Muslim – those who have submitted
Very strange the behavior of the Muslims today who follow their whims. Hajj is a pilgrimage which is to attain the renewal of our oath of allegiance to Allah.

Ihram
Ihram is neither comfortable, graceful or elegant but nothing more holy as the clothing of submission to Allah. Without ihram, hajj is not accepted. It reiterates the position of the slave is to submit to the master. Accept that we are slaves of Allah – even though accepting or not accepting this fact doesn’t change the FACT that Allah is Malik Al Mulk. We are born as slaves of Allah. Good or bad or rebellious or not. Obedient or disobedient. And both choices have results.

Rules of Ihram
The ihram reminds the haji that his total focus is Allah (swt).
Bathe, make wudhu and 2 rakaats salaah to come into Ihram – Identity comes from obedience to Allah (swt).
Thereafter Make Niyyah for Hajj – demanded from you to make sajdah then Niyyah. Demonstrating your obedience to Allah – complete and total submission before Allah. There is no sajdah to anyone other than Allah (swt) and is a way of coming close to Allah.

Tawaf & Saee
The story of Ibrahim (as) and his family is a story of submission to Allah. A story of sacrifice. Allah mentions in Surah Saffat the incident of what happened.

“When his son was old enough to walk with him…”
“Oh, my son, I saw in my dream that I am slaughtering you – offering you as a sacrifice…”
“Look, what do you see??” strange way of talking (not really asking an opinion of his son) —to Ismail (as): Look inside your heart, what do you see….

“Oh my father, do what you have been commanded to do, InshaAllah you will find me of the patient…” Ismail (as) reply.

This is not only meant for Ismail(as) – what is in your own heart regarding Allah’s commands?
Allah’s command doesn’t make sense – that Allah gives Ibrahim (as) a son and commands him to sacrifice him. Whether we understand or not, want to or not we need to submit. Reflect upon these ayah.

Allah directly spoke to Ibrahim (as): “Ya Ibrahim, you have fulfilled and made truthful your dream and verily thus do we reward the ‘muhsinoon’ Verily that indeed was a manifest trial…”

Ibrahim only succeeded by the help of Allah (swt).

What is the legacy of Ibrahim (as)? It is obedience to Allah (swt)
“When his Rabb said to him submit – He said, I have submitted.”

How was Ismail (as) able to obey Allah and his father? It was the Tarbiyyah of the mother! A mother who introduced him to Allah (swt).

Spirit of sacrifice is spirit of Islam – Tawakkul on Allah. Allah will not allow anything done for His sake with Ikhlas to be wasted. Make no mistake – Disobedience to Allah brings ‘nahoosat’ of our lives in this dunya and if we die with disobedience we will be in the fire.

Do not disobey Allah, because Allah only gives us victory based on our obedience!
Fear sin! It is an extremely serious matter – to take sin lightly is a sign of the Munafiq! The sin is like a rock that will crush him, the only way this rock will not crush the believer is when he makes tawbah.
May Allah have mercy on us and give us tawfiq and the ability to immediately make tawbah.
The standard we should measure ourselves against are the Sahaba.
After obedience to Allah, Ibrahim and Ismail (as) were chosen by Allah to build the Kaaba!

Day of Arafat
Sometimes submitting to the will of Allah means denying yourself something you like. As in hajj, pray at odd hours, sleep in tents and wears ihram, makes dua at Arafat for long hours – this is sacrifice.
Standing in Arafat is the Hajj! The dua of the one who stands in Arafat is accepted.
There is no day in which Allah frees more slaves from the fire than the day of Arafat!
For the one who does not make hajj- fasting on this day is equal to expiation of sins of the year before and the year to come.

The Talbiyah
Is a declaration of faith.

Ten Days of Thul Hijjah
Its day are the best of the year! Fasting a day of these years is equal in fasting to one year.
Its nights are equal to reward of a night of worship on Laylatul Qadr.
Takbeer at tashreeq (for the days of tashreeq)
Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Laa Ilaa Hailalhu Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar Wa Lilahil Hamd

00:01:01--> 00:01:02

my brothers and sisters,

00:01:03--> 00:01:23

the topic of the lecture today is Hajj, what it means and what it gives Allah subhanaw taala in sort of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala set out we live in shaytani r rajim. In our lava eating Woody Allen Nancy Lizzy baccata Mubarak and wahoo de Lille al Ameen Fie.

which means Verily, the first house of worship appointed for mankind was that at Baka, which is another name for maca, full of blessing and a guidance for Allah Al amin, which includes the jinn and includes human beings and whatever else Allah Subhana Allah wishes to include in that term. in it are manifest signs dhamaka of Ibrahim alayhi salam, Whosoever enters it, he attains security and Hajj to the house is a duty that mankind owes to Allah subhanho wa Taala those who can afford the expenses minister Tyler he Sevilla, those who have the Easter that to make the journey

00:02:28--> 00:02:56

and whosoever this believes that is whosoever denies the Hajj. He is a disbeliever as regards Allah subhanho wa Taala then Allah does not stand in need of any of the IOM in Allah subhanho wa Taala who was summit? Well, honey, y'all Hamid Allah Subhana Allah is not in need of any of his creation and his whole all of his creation is in the need of Allah subhanho wa Taala for every instance of their lives.

00:02:57--> 00:03:29

As the Hajaj once again, get ready to go for Hajj it is good for us to recall what is intended by this unique form of worship, that Allah Subhana Allah has blessed us with the Hajj is a story of Ibrahim alayhis salam. It is a story of the very essence of Islam, of obedience without question to Allah subhanho wa Taala achieved the story of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam I mentioned it in different contexts at different times. And you will recall some of those mentions

00:03:30--> 00:03:36

among the ambia of Allah subhanho wa Taala bramalea salam has a very special position as Khalid Allah

00:03:37--> 00:04:04

Allah Serrano della said about his Holly live Rahim Allah He Salam is Carla la hora boo a slim Allah Aslam to de la bella mean, when is Rob said to him Submit. He said I have submitted myself to the Red Bull Allah mean no questions, no arguments, no doubts, no hesitation. Allah says Submit. And Ibrahim Alayhi Salam says I have submitted as Lim Allah Islam to

00:04:05--> 00:04:53

the first and foremost purpose of Hajj is to remind us that it is this unquestioning submission to Allah subhanho wa Taala orders, which is demanded of the Muslim that is what is demanded of all people. And it is expected especially from those who call themselves Muslim, because the word Muslim means those who have submitted How can you justify calling yourself Muslim yet you don't submit to Allah as a very peculiar situation that the Muslims today are in. We say I am Muslim, but I have my own desires. I have my own will. I have my own things that I want to do which are different from what the dean permits me to do? Very strange. This is not how I have understood Islam. This is not

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

how Allah subhanho wa Taala into the intends us to understand Islam. The Hajj therefore reminds us to make

00:05:00--> 00:05:45

And to renew our oath of allegiance, our buyer to Allah subhanho wa Taala it's for this reason that the Hajj has a uniform. The Haram which is neither comfortable nor graceful nor elegant, but there is nothing more holy because it is the clothing of submission to Allah subhanho wa Taala the Haram is compulsory for the Haji. It doesn't matter whether you like to wear it or you don't like to wear it, it doesn't matter what you think about it, it doesn't matter whether it is comfortable or not comfortable, but without the Haram the Hajj is not accepted. If a Haji is does not wear the Haram without unless there is a Sharia reason for him which which which absolves him from that for a

00:05:45--> 00:05:56

normal person if he says I will not wear a haram and instead of that I will wear something else I wear a nice tracksuit or something which is comfortable or whatever he wants to wear anything other than the eram not acceptable has is not valid.

00:05:59--> 00:06:49

And it also doesn't matter how pious and devoted to Allah subhana wa Taala that he feels, if he does not conform to the uniform of Hajj is has does not count. And this is clearly to underline the glory and majesty of Allah subhanho wa Taala as the true king to Allah, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, Allah, Allah Karim and to drive home the point, that it is the position of the slave, to submit to the master. The joy of the slave is the pleasure of the master. What the slave loves is what the master likes. The slave is one who has no will of his own, the will of the slave is the will of the master, the desire of the slave is the will of the master. The only purpose of the

00:06:49--> 00:07:03

existence of the slave is to fulfill the purpose of the master, and that is who the Muslim is, and that is who what is expected of the Muslim, that he puts himself in this situation of accepting that he is a slave of Allah.

00:07:05--> 00:07:31

Please understand, whether you are I whether the Muslims or non Muslims accept it or don't accept it, it does not change the situation. Everyone in the on the face of the planet gene or human being is a slave of Allah coluna eva de la, there is no one who is not an ABS of Allah. The only difference is there are some slaves who are obedient slaves and there are some slaves who are disobedient and rebellious slaves. That's the only that's the only difference.

00:07:32--> 00:07:38

This situation of being a slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is like the whole issue of being human.

00:07:39--> 00:08:03

Can I deny the fact that I'm a human being? I cannot I can be a good human being or a bad human being but I can't turn into an elephant or something you know, because I am not a human being are lions. No. collars are what you want right? Join the Lions Club is a lion so Enzo does become a lion. They even roar in other the the the games that men play, women have far more sense. There's no lioness club, and women don't roar, men roar.

00:08:05--> 00:08:07

I went to one Lions Club meeting my life and that was

00:08:09--> 00:08:22

completely ridiculous. But anyway, the point I'm making is that that doesn't make you a lion. Right? You are a human being. And that's how you are Abdullah. You are a slave of Allah. I'm a slave of Allah, whether we like it we don't like it makes no difference. We are born we are a slave of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:08:23--> 00:08:29

And just like I'm a human being and I want a choice, I want to be a good human being or a bad human being that's a choice I can not be a human being.

00:08:31--> 00:08:58

And so also being a slave of Allah subhanaw taala Am I an obedient slave or am I a disobedient slave, that's the only that's the only choice and both of them have price tags, there is a there is a result of being an obedient slave, and there is a result of being a disobedient slave. Just as there is a result of being a good human being and a result of being a bad human being. Just like those those two things have got results. Similarly these two things also have results. The Haram also has rules

00:08:59--> 00:09:31

for the one who wears it things that are allowed and things that he are not allowed for the person and if the person does those things, then they will refined with a heavy fine. While in the Haram the Hajj is reminded that his total and only focus is towards Allah, Allah Allah. And so his entire identity and being is seen in that light as devotion to Allah subhanho wa Taala and is considered to be worshipped. That is why he has to bear and make widow and make terracotta salah and then he has to make the Nia of coming into Iran.

00:09:33--> 00:09:58

This is to draw our attention, that the identity comes from obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala the very very first ritual of Hajj as I mentioned is to make the need of for Hajj and for the Nia of Hajj. You make you put on your RAM, you have a universal ram you may put on RAM and you make your Casasola and you make the NEA for how much

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

it is

00:10:00--> 00:10:11

demanded from you that you first make such that before you make Nia, you first demonstrate your obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala. The sudo is the icon of the Muslim.

00:10:13--> 00:10:24

The thing which distinguishes the Muslim from everybody else is a such a state of complete and total helplessness, which is gize only before the one who created us.

00:10:25--> 00:10:28

There is no such that to anyone other than Allah subhanaw taala.

00:10:29--> 00:10:30

No matter who that person is

00:10:31--> 00:10:38

sajida is jeyes only to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And this says that is the condition

00:10:40--> 00:10:49

before a person can even enter into a harem and even enter, make the knee of watch. And that's why a lot of Antara said was God.

00:10:50--> 00:10:53

Allah subhanaw taala said make such that and come close.

00:10:55--> 00:11:34

The such that you is the way of getting close to Allah subhanho wa Taala that he then makes the often say, which bring alive the Sunnah of Ibrahim alayhi salam, and our Ma and our mother has alehissalaam think about the story of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and his family. It's a story of submission to the will of Allah. We all know the story of the sacrifice of Ibrahim alayhis salam of the several times you dreamt about the sacrifice and what he did. He sacrificed animals, sacrifice camels and so on. But the dream kept coming over and over again until he realized that Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted him to sacrifice his son. See the T the tests that Allah subhanaw taala

00:11:34--> 00:11:36

puts for his ambia

00:11:38--> 00:11:52

Allah subhanaw taala could have simply sent jabril A Salah with ye and say Allah subhanaw taala want you to sacrifice your son, right? Love is not dependent on sending a dream and for him to interpret and so on and so forth. But this is the muscle of Allah subhanho wa Taala the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala so what does the MLA Salam do

00:11:54--> 00:12:01

when you read these Ayat of surah Safa It's a strange, strange thing if you just think about this and we reflect on it

00:12:03--> 00:12:07

and say what it what did what did he do? Yeah, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned

00:14:05--> 00:14:08

What he's saying? He's saying fondo Mathura.

00:14:09--> 00:14:11

He said See, look.

00:14:12--> 00:14:13

Look where? See what.

00:14:20--> 00:14:26

So Allah Jeeva this conversation. He says reason. See, look what you see.

00:14:28--> 00:14:32

Who can have this conversation? Who can have such a conversation

00:14:33--> 00:14:34

with somebody?

00:14:36--> 00:14:42

Whenever they said I'm saying to them, this is what I saw in my dream. You look inside your heart and see what do you see there?

00:14:44--> 00:14:47

Who is saying it is a to some some?

00:14:49--> 00:14:51

Some great album.

00:14:53--> 00:14:55

Some Brooke is saying it to a little kid.

00:14:57--> 00:15:00

He's saying this to a little boy who's about to just about everything.

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

To walk alongside him whatever his age was,

00:15:04--> 00:15:08

funds or mazara reflect on these is

00:15:09--> 00:15:17

reflect on these ads because this is the column of Allah subhanho wa Taala this data is for you and me also, look inside your heart and see what is there.

00:15:19--> 00:15:21

It's not only meant for Israel as a salon,

00:15:22--> 00:15:37

it is meant for us it's meant for you and me saying, Look inside your heart and see what is in your heart with regard to what, with regard to a home of Allah subhanho wa Taala which within quartz makes absolutely zero sense.

00:15:39--> 00:15:52

Here is Rama Salam who is the past at God knows in his 90s or something, he makes law for decades. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala gives him one son and when that son is just about able to walk, Allah says go kill him.

00:15:53--> 00:15:54

Does this make sense?

00:15:55--> 00:15:59

Is it logical? Is it reasonable? Is it sensible?

00:16:00--> 00:16:06

What are all the terms that you and I have got used to using with regard to the orders of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:16:09--> 00:16:16

Rama Same, same abs, Allah has not changed. The law of Abraham is our hamdulillah.

00:16:18--> 00:16:35

What is the demand here the demand here is here is a form of Allah subhanho wa Taala which does not make sense to me, which does not appear logical to me, which does not appear reasonable to me, which seems to be an oppression of me.

00:16:36--> 00:16:40

funds or mazara look inside your heart and what do you see?

00:16:42--> 00:16:49

Look inside your heart and what do you see? Now what did what did these the sun Xia achieve? What did he say?

He's about to Alma tomorrow, SATA. junee insha. Allah who Mina, Siberian. He said oh my father, do what you have been commanded to do. In sha Allah, you will find me

00:17:11--> 00:17:13

What does it tell you in sha Allah? Allah?

00:17:14--> 00:17:17

He understands his own limitations.

00:17:18--> 00:17:24

When was the last time you were slaughtered? What do you know what happens when he was when you are being slaughtered? Right? Have you any clue? Do I have any clue?

00:17:26--> 00:17:53

is I don't know there is this is a test. But insha Allah if Allah subhanaw taala gave you this hokum insha Allah, Allah subhanaw taala will make it that I will be able to help you to fulfill the order that Europe has given you. What kind of conversation that's why make Allah tada burner Quran. Allah, Allah when Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala is the question, don't they? Don't they reflect on the Quran? Or is it that the hearts have been sealed?

00:17:55--> 00:17:58

reflect on the Quran? Just sit with that ayah

00:17:59--> 00:18:04

reflect inside ourselves and say where are we with regard to this Dean.

00:18:06--> 00:18:16

And then when they had both submitted themselves to the will of Allah and he had laid him prostrate on his forehead, we called out to him Allah subhanaw taala was they wanna they inaho

00:18:18--> 00:18:21

Allah did not send jabril A Salam. To give a message.

00:18:22--> 00:18:31

Allah subhanho wa Taala directly addressed Ibrahim Elisa, Allah subhanho wa Taala spoke to MLA Salaam in a way that pleases His Majesty and grace.

00:18:33--> 00:19:01

Allah subhanho wa Taala Juana De La Jolla, Ibrahim. Allah subhanaw taala called out via Ibrahim sir Dr. Roja you have fulfilled and made truthful your dream in Casa de Cana Josie merci Nene. And verily thus do We reward the mercy known verily that indeed was a manifest trial. Allah subhanho wa Taala himself is saying in Naha, Allahu Allah, Allah, Al Azim by Allah when

00:19:03--> 00:19:06

Allah subhanaw taala says, this was a very difficult thing, it was not easy.

00:19:07--> 00:19:08

We know what we gave you.

00:19:09--> 00:19:16

And you succeeded. And how did he succeed by the help of Islam by the help of his

00:19:17--> 00:19:34

message number 234. I don't know I've lost count how many messages but the one of the one of the messages that if Allah subhanaw taala gives a test, and if the slave accepts this test, and if the slave has suffer, than the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala will come in sha Allah.

00:19:35--> 00:20:00

This is the word of Allah subhanaw taala whoever I am la Salam have fulfilled the test without the help of Allah goodsmile la Salam have given this answer that he gave without the help of Allah. No. But Allah will give what when Allah subhanaw taala tests. My brothers and sisters, what is the legacy? What is the inheritance what is the third cause of Ibrahim alayhi salam, obedience to Allah the third

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

Gather the legacy of Ibrahim Alayhi. Salam is obedience to Allah, Allah Allah. And it is by this study, Ibrahim Alayhi. Salam himself is remembered as someone who was a true Muslim, Allah subhanho wa Taala said is Kala la hora boo Aslan all Aslam told me when is Rob said to him Submit. He said I have submitted when I read these I tried to imagine the situation after a while my imagination does not work anymore. Truly the way of the MBA are unique. However, what I was struck by other words of Ibrahim alayhis salam, when he spoke to his son, as I mentioned to you, funds, or Mazza, Tara,

00:20:41--> 00:20:47

remember, how is that son able to answer this question? Because of the upbringing of his mother,

00:20:49--> 00:20:55

remember that that son probably did not see but did not see his father. That was probably the first time he was seeing his father.

00:20:56--> 00:21:09

Because his father left him and the mother, when the son was a absolute infant, he left him by the hook of Allah subhanho wa Taala, in the dry and barren Valley of Baca,

00:21:11--> 00:21:17

who brought up this child in a way where this child could say,

00:21:20--> 00:21:24

where the child could say, do what you have been commanded to do.

00:21:28--> 00:21:29

Who brought up the child,

00:21:30--> 00:21:32

his mother, his mother.

00:21:34--> 00:21:48

And as if that whole story as well, whenever I'm Elisa Lam, takes his wife and son on the order of Allah subhanaw taala without any explanation to them whatsoever, takes them and leaves them and turns around and walks away.

00:21:50--> 00:22:01

He doesn't tell them why he took them there. He doesn't tell them what they're supposed to do. He turns around and goes away doesn't tell them why is he going away? Where is he going? Is he going to come back not come and nothing.

00:22:02--> 00:22:03

Because that's not the Hakama of Islam.

00:22:04--> 00:22:08

Allah subhanaw taala said take them and leave them there. solemn takes them and leaves them

00:22:09--> 00:22:26

and he walks away. And as he is walking Allah subhanaw taala described all these in the eyes. As he is walking away his wife tells him he's asking for an explanation says nothing. He says, Did your Rob tell you to leave us here? Even though he does not say yes or no, he just nods his head.

00:22:27--> 00:22:29

He just nods his head.

00:22:30--> 00:22:31

What is her reaction?

00:22:32--> 00:22:39

What is her reaction? Her reaction is that if you are up told you to leave us here, then he will not allow us to perish.

00:22:40--> 00:22:47

What level of taqwa is this? What level of tawakkol? is this? What level of reliance on Allah subhanaw taala is this

00:22:49--> 00:23:24

and that's the reason why when this child was brought up by a mother who was like that, that child developed at that early age that child developed a level of connection with Allah, where he could say to his father, do what you have been commanded to do, and inshallah I will help you to do it, and inshallah you will find me among the sovereign. This is not a child without tarbiyah this is not a child who is brought up like a light like we bring up bring up children, there's no difference between how we bring up children and how do we bring up your pets, a pet cat or a pet goat or something, you know, feed them, clothe them, keep them dry for us.

00:23:27--> 00:23:37

This is not how I smile a Salaam was brought up Islam is vile Islam was brought up by a mother who introduced him to Allah subhanho wa Taala. The father had no hand to play in that until that point in time.

00:23:39--> 00:24:05

My brothers and sisters, the spirit of sacrifice is the spirit of Islam. It is the spirit of implicit unquestioning, complete total submission and obedience to Allah subhanho wa Taala, the tawakkol Allah subhanho wa Taala the certainty that Allah will not allow anything done for his sake with your class to be wasted. The sincere and certain belief that Allah subhanho wa Taala will use as for his work, provided we are willing to stand up to be counted.

00:24:07--> 00:24:21

That's the key. The key is to stand up with the class. Remove all disobedience from our lives. Remember, we read the story stories of the MBR There is not a single nubby who did anything to disobey Allah.

00:24:23--> 00:24:24

Not a single lovey

00:24:26--> 00:24:37

disobedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala brings in a whole set in our lives in this dunya and if we die with a disobedience it will take us into the fire. May Allah protect us from this Make no mistake?

00:24:38--> 00:24:57

Make no mistake. That's the reason why those who understood this Deen warned others about disobeying Allah. The famous letter that Omar Abdel Fattah amirul momineen Road to sodimm w Casa de la no one of the Ashura MOBA Shara writing to another one who has been promised Jana

00:25:00--> 00:25:09

When he was the commander of the army at the Battle of Cassia, what did Omar Nakata right? Omar Al Khattab said, save yourself from disobedience of Allah.

00:25:11--> 00:25:28

Do not disobey Allah. Because Allah does not give us victory based on arms and does not give us victory based on numbers. Allah gives us victory based on our obedience to Him. And if we disobey Allah, Allah will give victory to the enemy he will not give victory to us.

00:25:30--> 00:25:37

My brothers and sisters, I remind myself when you Who are we talking about? We are talking about people who had the guarantee of Jana.

00:25:39--> 00:25:49

What guarantee Have I got what guarantee have you got? Have you got some guarantee? Have I got some guarantee? How is it we live with in such complete absence of all fear?

00:25:51--> 00:25:54

whereas those who had a guarantee of Jannah they will remind each other

00:25:55--> 00:26:00

I will do so deserve it. What disobedience of Allah Do you think sodimms Abacus was doing or the alano

00:26:02--> 00:26:04

and the people with him were all Sahaba

00:26:05--> 00:26:11

it was an army of Sahaba I don't say that everyone in the army was happy but most of them many of them were there at that time.

00:26:12--> 00:26:39

What disobedience were they doing? These were the people who learn the deen at the feet of Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. These were the people who are witness to the as Baba knows all of the ayat of the Quran. They were witness to the circumstances of the revelation. Every single eye of the Quran Edna Masada Delano says that there is not a single ayah in the Quran about which I do not know how and where it was revealed.

00:26:41--> 00:26:48

Right. Can anyone can imagine we say today we talk about does Allah that Allah which alum is equal to A Holla Holla what a level

00:26:49--> 00:27:12

Abdullah life nimasa delana says this, he says there is not even one ayah Not a single ayah in the Quran, about which I do not know how it was revealed and when it was revealed. And who is Abdullah Abdullah Massoud is the man about whom Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said if Abdullah Abdullah soul tells you something from me take it.

00:27:13--> 00:27:22

Blanket guarantee whatever Abdullah Abdullah Saud conveys is the truth who is giving this guarantee mohammadu Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam

00:27:25--> 00:27:35

these were the people and they were wanting each other do not commit sin do not do haram do not do something to disobey Allah subhanaw taala for what who was is wanting for

00:27:36--> 00:27:45

they were wanting themselves because they say that no matter what guarantee we have from Allah subhanaw taala we will rest only when both our feet are inside the agenda.

00:27:46--> 00:27:53

These are the people who understood this Deen These are the people who had genuine L of Islam of the Quran and the Sunnah.

00:27:54--> 00:28:06

My brothers and sisters, fear sin, fear sin, it is a very serious matter. Do not take sin lightly to take sin lightly is the sign of the monastic

00:28:08--> 00:28:33

rasulillah salam said the one who has the man the believer if he commits the smallest sin, He that sin sits on his head like a huge rock which is about to fall and crush him. He wants to remove this rock in as quickly as possible. And what is the way of removing the rock make Toba? So immediately as soon as he realizes that I made a mistake, immediately he makes Toba he does not wait he does not ask for time.

00:28:34--> 00:28:42

Who asked for time? Who's there and zuri li Yamato Who said this? He believes give me time.

00:28:46--> 00:29:27

And what did Allah Allah is Allah and his wife, our mother and father What did they say? Ravana Salam nanfu sana immediately accept immediately x O Allah we make. We forget we are sinners. Ravana Salam nanfu sana Whalen de la Hamza, then akuna Minal Hassan if you don't have mercy on us, and if you do not forgive us, we are destroyed. We are finished. We are among the losers. Allah have mercy on us. We ask this about finances myself. And as for all of you in sha Allah, may Allah have mercy on us. And may Allah give us the toffee to immediately immediately make Toba let us look into our own hearts, our brothers and sisters, all of these lectures are not for the sake of getting some

00:29:27--> 00:29:37

knowledge and getting some information and learnings our head is no The idea is for us to look at ourselves, look at our own lives and bring about actual visible changes in our lives.

00:29:39--> 00:30:00

Alhamdulillah there are many of you doing that melasma Tara strengthen you may Allah subhanaw taala help you and melasma will accept that but we need to do it more and more and more. Because as I have said before, who is the standard against whom we will be measured? The Sahaba of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam that is the gold standard. We will not be measured. I will not

00:30:00--> 00:30:40

be measured against my father, my grandfather. No, we will be measured against the Sahaba. And what did what did the Sahaba do? We have what the Sahaba did? its history. It's not mythology. It's not a it's not it's not a mystery. Please understand very, very clearly. When they passed this test, Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and Hassan Allah subhanho wa Taala chose the Father and the Son to build his house and to call the people to Hajj he immortalize the action of the mother when she ran from a sofar to Al marva. As one of the Hajj and the Amara. Allah subhanaw taala made the spring of Zamzam an eternal source of blessing for all those who come to visit his house. And he sent the Allah Allah

00:30:40--> 00:30:52

those who love Him from afar places to visit his house and to pray at alma kamagra him, which he named after MLA Salaam and directed that this be made into a place of prayer.

00:30:53--> 00:31:42

And finally, Allah subhanaw taala raised the name and mentioned Rahim Allah is Allah mini smiley Salaam and sacrificing the world for unborn generations remember them and the actions What more can one ask? And remember that these are the rewards of this world. What Allah subhanaw taala will give the Brahim Elisa Lam and his wife and to his children, only Allah subhanaw taala knows best. Allah subhanaw taala mentioned our relationship with Ibrahim alayhi salam, and he analysed Allah said wha hoo Villa haka jihadi, who was tabacum wa Giada. La confit de manera Mila, Mila abiko Ibrahim, who was a Mako muslimeen min kaaboo. Was he had Lia coonara solutia. He's an aleikum. Wa kono shuhada

00:31:42--> 00:32:27

Alana's for ottimo sala de la to sakata watashi mobila. He, who am Ola comb for Nia malamala wanyama Nasir Allah subhanho wa Taala zaidan strive hard and Allah scores as you are to strive hochkar jihadi, make Jihad as it is the heart of the heart, and that he has chosen you to convey his message of Islam and has not laid upon you in religion any hardship. It is the religion of your father Ibrahim, it is he Allah subhanho wa Taala who named you Muslims, both before and in this Quran that the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam may be a witness over you and you'll be witnesses over mankind to establish a salah and pay zakat and hold fast to Allah subhanho wa Taala. He is your

00:32:27--> 00:32:39

molar what an excellent molar and what an excellent helper now I'm Al Mohler, when am I gonna see you ask Allah subhanaw taala to be our molar and to be our helper in everything that we do.

00:32:40--> 00:32:41

Now my brothers and sisters,

00:32:45--> 00:33:27

sometimes submitting to the will of Allah subhanaw taala may mean denying yourself something that you like something that you find pleasant, and this is true of Hajj, the Haji voluntarily undergoes all kinds of hardships only to please Allah. He may be wealthy and may be used to living in luxury but he wears two pieces of cloth and he sleeps on the ground in a tent and he walks without proper shoes, and he prays or odd hours and he stands in the hot sun in arafa and begging Allah subhanaw taala for his mercy. Remember that the reward for one rocket of Salah in the Haram is 100,000 times 100,000 record. But on the day of all of us if a Haji in Iran says that I am going to stay in the in

00:33:27--> 00:33:53

Makkah. I am going to stay next to the Kaaba and pray here. And I will not go to arafat. He is he has there is no hedge and he's actually committing a sin because he has made the knee of a hedge and he's deliberately not gone for hedge where his hedge rfis hedge so on that one day of 9000 hedge the most pious the most beneficial thing that a Muslim can do is what is to stand in.

00:33:56--> 00:34:42

There is no action of the Muslim on that day which is of greater value which is of greater worth and greater benefit to him. Then the standing in the in the in the door of the one who stands in alpha. Allah subhanaw taala accepts the door of the Haji Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said in a hadith in in Nevada and even a ban the soldier in the path of Allah and the one who makes Hajj and the one who performed Amara, all our delegation of Allah He called them and they answered and he asked and they asked Him and He will grant them and that is why the telomere itself labovick Allah Humala bike, the bike Allah Shetty Kala Kala bike in Alhambra, one near Metallica, well molk la sharika luck. The

00:34:42--> 00:34:58

Delta itself is a declaration of the heat. The delvia itself is answering la la Vega la Humala back, it's answering Allah subhanaw taala call them and they answered May Allah swatara makers all those who will answer again and again and again inshallah

00:34:59--> 00:35:00

Rasul Allah Allah

00:35:00--> 00:35:42

Salam said, inside a Muslim, the Hadees in which isn't a Muslim, the meaning of which he said there is no day on which Allah subhanho wa Taala frees more of his slaves from the fire than the day of arafah and he verily draws near them and then boasts of them before his melodica saying what do they seek? See how they have come? They in another Hadith? Nevertheless, Salam said Allah subhanaw taala boasts of the people of arafat before the people of the heavens, saying look at my my slaves who have come to me disabled and dusty. Abdullah Nemo Baraka della and Rahmatullah narrates, he said, I went to Sofia, Sofia. And if not why Anna, as the day of arafat was setting he was he sat on his

00:35:42--> 00:35:59

knees, his hands raised to the heavens and tears moisten his cheeks and his beard. He turned and looked at me. So I asked him amongst the people who have gathered here for Hajj, who isn't the worst state. So we asked him, Why not said he who thinks that Allah will not forgive him.

00:36:01--> 00:36:41

He said somebody is sitting in spring in arafat, anything I do, I will not be accepted that is the most wretched person to make dua with the complete confidence in sha Allah, Allah subhanaw taala will forgive and Allah subhanaw taala will will give da da da da da is the is the essence of the battle. It is the brain of a battle. The whole purpose either is to make do is to connect ourselves with with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Let us make dua with a complete certainty that we we ask Rob who listens, we ask Rob who hears we ask Rob who sees we asked Rob who has who has knowledge of what is inside our hearts. That is sudo Allah subhanaw taala knows what's in our hearts ask Allah subhanaw

00:36:41--> 00:36:45

taala with complete and total certainty to grant us what we asked him

00:36:46--> 00:37:06

the truth is that I want you to make today one is for the niece of I have Ashfaq 23 days old, she is in ICU make dua that Allah subhanho wa Taala should completely cure her of all the problems whatever she has, and Allah subhanaw taala should bring her home to her parents without any difficulty inshallah little child 23 years yes three weeks old,

00:37:07--> 00:37:19

may or may maybe the firstborn first child of his of his sister, the other one is for another sister of ours who has been diagnosed with breast cancer may Allah subhanaw taala should completely cure her

00:37:21--> 00:37:29

without any operation without any problem inshallah and remove the remove the the it's the hope of Allah subhanaw taala

00:37:30--> 00:37:57

with hope of Allah the cancer can turn and you can just go away. Make dua make dua with complete certainty inshallah, we ask Allah to accept all our doors inshallah. So these two doors I wanted to make today and as we know in Java, there is a time when the door of the of the slave is accepted. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to decree that that is the time when we make this door Charla so these two drives Allah make sure that you make this dude was de la quiero salovaara Allah subhanaw taala said,

00:37:58--> 00:37:59

Allah Allah Allah Allah.

00:38:01--> 00:38:17

Allah Delano narrates whoever performs Hajj for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala His pleasure and does not have relations with his wife during that period and does not do evil or sins, then he will return after Hajj free from all sins as if he was born new.

00:38:18--> 00:38:59

What more can we ask Allah subhanaw taala then that he forgives all our sins and that we come back as if we have been born on that day. We are coming to the first 10 days of Malaysia and I want to before I finish I want to talk to you about that because that's a very important part of the year for us. inshallah, Allah Allah, it will probably the first will probably be on the 17th or the 18th of October, a few days from now We ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us that the importance of the first 10 days of the ledger. Allah subhanaw taala mentioned this in Surah Al further what Allah Allah subhanaw taala took the oath of 10 nights, and according to the majority of the officer on the

00:38:59--> 00:39:48

Koran, these nights are those of the first 10 days of will he Abdullayev nabasa Delano narrates rasulillah salam said good deeds performed on other days, other than these 10 days are not superior to those performed on the first day first 10 days of the ledger. The companions are the Alon whom said jasola not even Jihad Rasul Allah salons are not even jihad, except that a person goes out putting his wealth and his life in danger and does not return. So if a person has been shaped feasibly Allah, that is the only thing which is superior other than that a person nor deed is superior to the deeds that are performed in these first 10 days of Rhodesia. So let us take the

00:39:48--> 00:39:53

maximum advantage of those first 10 days. Abu huraira the Allahu anhu

00:39:54--> 00:40:00

narrated from rasulillah salam reported in tirmidhi and if de magia on

00:40:00--> 00:40:10

No days is the worship of Allah desired more than in the first 10 days of the ledger, the first of each of these days if a person is fasting and I

00:40:12--> 00:40:16

recommend that all of us inshallah, let us fast on the first 10 days of the ledger inshallah

00:40:18--> 00:40:30

the fasting of one day is equal to the fast of the whole year. And the worship of each of these nights is equal to the worship of Laila Kolkata.

00:40:32--> 00:41:12

And this is the narration by Abu huraira, the alano from Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam the word of fasting of one day of the first 10 days of julija. First 10 days mean 10 days at the first nine days of Malaysia is equal to fasting for one full year. So we fast for the nine days it is equal to nine years of fasting. And remember when Allah subhanaw taala, saying nine years it means continuous fasting for nine years, can you imagine the what is the reward of this thing? And the prayer in the night, there is no specific prayer in the night there is no therapy and so on and so forth, whatever, that we do, devour the Quran, and so on and so forth. That prayer in the night is equal to

00:41:12--> 00:41:14

the prayer of Layla Toluca.

00:41:15--> 00:41:17

So we don't get one letter to color we get nine letters

00:41:18--> 00:41:20

and what is the reward of letters?

00:41:21--> 00:41:24

What is the reward? Hi Roman l fish are

00:41:26--> 00:41:40

better than 1000 months of Avada 1000 months of continuously worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala 24 hours better than that, Hiram min al Fisher.

00:41:41--> 00:41:50

Many times we will make this translation this is equal to Allah did not say equal to Allah said it is better, how much better, better in keeping with the grace and majesty of my Arab?

00:41:53--> 00:41:58

Who knows? When Allah gives Allah gives according to his Shan he does not give a gun into our little brains.

00:42:01--> 00:42:05

Right? Always have the best, best expectation was ran out in

00:42:07--> 00:42:44

the mother of the believers have Serra de Allahumma reports that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam used to fast the first nine days of the hijab, and this is in Muslim Imam Muhammad in Abu Dhabi in si afterlight Nirmala Delano narrates Rasul Allah, Allah said no days are more weighty with Allah and so liked by him for good deeds than the first 10 days of Legion. So on these days increasingly say Subhana Allah La ilaha illAllah Alhamdulillah and Allahu Akbar and this is a hadith in Muslim Imam Muhammad

00:42:45--> 00:43:02

Rasul Allah Sallam said in a hadith narrated intermarry, which I have mentioned before, one fast during these days is equal to the fasting of one complete year. And the worship of one night during this period is equal to the worship in Layla Toluca.

00:43:03--> 00:43:07

The ninth day of the ledger is called yo mo arafa.

00:43:08--> 00:43:33

Right, and we should call it Yeoman Fitton. Because that's another day when we have differences of opinion, is it out of out there standing there, they're not standing there, whatnot, whatnot, please don't create confusion in your life, the ninth of the ledger in whichever country you are for you that day is your mole arafa whether somebody is standing in alpha or not, has no material significance for you. Obviously, if you are living in Australia,

00:43:34--> 00:43:36

they are doing it.

00:43:38--> 00:43:39

Or other way around,

00:43:40--> 00:43:47

you are standing up for your 9000 ledger is actually eighth of the ledger for them, they haven't even gone to alpha.

00:43:49--> 00:43:54

Right. And if you wait until they go too far, then you will be doing something which is harder material faster on the debit.

00:43:57--> 00:44:38

So don't confuse yourself. the opinion of all the IMA across the board is you celebrate, you observe according to the date in your country, whichever country you are in, when it is the ninth of the ledger, that is the day which is called Yeoman arafa that is only a name for that day, it does not necessarily mean that on that particular day, there are people standing in alpha, obviously the world time differences are there. Therefore it cannot be the ninth of villager in every country in the world. At the same time you know this, I know this, so do not confuse ourselves. Now, the fasting on that particular day, the fasting on any of these days is equal to the fasting of one

00:44:38--> 00:44:50

year, the fasting Of The Day of arafah itself, which is the ninth of villager rasulillah salam said that the fasting experience the sins of one year before and one year after.

00:44:52--> 00:44:59

There is no limit to what Allah gives a Jeep, Allah subhanaw taala gives and gives and gives. Another very important thing is

00:45:01--> 00:45:37

From the father of the ninth of the ledger up to the author of the 13th it is obligatory for each Muslim to recite the top duckbill of the Shrek. Godzilla called the Yamato ship. For every for Salah saying Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar Allahu Akbar. Allah Allah Al hums. So for the for the men, we do it aloud, the women can do it softly. But it is important that when you pray, whether you're praying in JAMA whether you pray myself, that from the ninth to the 13th, after every fourth Salah that we recite this bugbear, insha Allah,

00:45:38--> 00:46:20

prohibitions for the person who is going to be doing the Qurbani. The idea is that the Rasul Allah Salam said, when you see the new moon of Malaysia, if any one of you intends to offer a sacrifice, then he should stop cutting his hair and his nails, until he has offered his sacrifice. Now, please understand, this refers to the person who is who's whose sacrifice, it is not the one who's actually slaughtering the animal, for example, for the women, they might delegate the actual slaughtering to a brother or the husband or the father or somebody or the sun, they might not actually slaughter the animal, but they that animal is being slaughtered in their name, that is their animal. Therefore,

00:46:20--> 00:46:35

for them also, this prohibition applies no cutting of nails, no cutting of hair, and no removing of any skin during that period from the ninth of julija, when you see the moon to

00:46:36--> 00:46:56

to the time that the sacrifice is very not not the night, then the new moon Yeah, the the the moon opposite individuals from the first from the first of the region for the 10 days, until we have you have actually done the sacrifice. So do understand this. So the prohibition of cutting the hair and the hair and the

00:46:58--> 00:47:34

look at us for free via you can use perfume, you can wash and so on. So what do wash I mean, not washing for 10 days is nasty, right? So you can do all that you can you can wash and so but when you're watching, don't try to grab your hair and and and you know dry it all over the place. No, do it do it in a way where it the whole idea is to be as close to the Hajaj as possible. So this is trying to be as close to them as possible, because they are the people who are in the, in the Presence of Allah subhanaw taala, and so forth and so on. So we try to be as close to them as possible, and that's why we this is the provision.

00:47:35--> 00:48:09

inshallah, now accidentally, if something happens if you're if you forget, and you cut your nails, or some hair comes off and so on, in this case, there is no expiation, there is no afara, there is no fine to be paid. So that's the only difference whereas in the other case, it would have been also if you have to cut your nails or you have to remove your hair or whatever, for some medical reason, for example, May Allah keep you safe. But supposing you you know, walk into a wall or something and you kneel piece of metal comes off a nice guy, if you don't remove it, it's causing you a lot of pain and all of that is obviously permitted. And you can do that Allah subhanaw taala does not

00:48:10--> 00:48:14

put us to unnecessary hardship and suffering.

00:48:15--> 00:48:31

And that's why as I said Finally, the the prohibition does not apply to the person delegated to do the of Incidentally, the women can also go and slaughter. So don't think that it's women cannot slow women can slaughter, women should slaughter, there's nothing wrong with nothing wrong with that it's good for them to

00:48:32--> 00:49:09

you know, harden themselves a little bit. So it's a good thing to slaughter. But if you don't want to do that, you can obviously delegate somebody to do that for you. But the prohibition applies to you not to the person who has been delegated because that right that sacrifice is on your behalf that it is being done. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept all arriba that ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us a trophy to do to maximize our ibaadat in these first 10 days. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us these first 10 days and to help us to maximize our ibadah in the first 10 days. We have no guarantee that we will ever get it again to make sure that we maximize our

00:49:09--> 00:49:18

developing these days. And we asked Allah subhanaw taala to accept all outdoors. And do I ask you once again make special for these two people, which is like a la hermosa mala Kumara Mottola
