In the number 11 salatu salam ala shuffelin via Murali he was happy human well, but
my dear brothers in its symbolic word Allah Allah, that today the reminder about the lessons from Hajj is about universal brotherhood. And today's also the vizier inshallah
the if there is one thing which the HUD symbolizes, perhaps more than anything else, it is the coming together of Muslims from all over the world, from different countries coming together
in Makkah, for one reason only, which is to worship Allah subhanaw taala.
From every country in the globe, and us, Van Alterra, since Muslims, all nationalities, all races, all colors, all tribes, families, and they all come together. And they all lived together for an extended period of time in Makkah, and then they traveled together, all the way to Orava, and then the back. And when I say all the way, it's not so much the distance, where it is the numbers, it is the confusion of that, and we know all this.
But one thing we stand out in all of this, is that despite the differences in culture, I mean, we all have the same religion. And that's why we all come together, because the one thing that Bond's all these Muslims across the world is the religion is Islam, there's nothing else in every other way they are different.
So that one Islam bond, during that period of heart is so strong, and Hamdulillah, that despite the fact that they don't understand each other, because they speak completely different languages, they don't have a single word in common. Despite the fact that they look different. They walk and talk different, they eat different. They come from different places, they have different histories, they have different hopes and aspirations. They have different fears and apprehensions. Despite all the differences. I can if I make a list of differences on one side, and I make a sort of balance sheet or differences on one side and commonalities on one side, I can fill that paper with differences.
And there is only one commonality which is Islam. There's absolutely nothing else in common only one thing, which is that we are all Muslim.
And that one bond is so strong that what is abundantly clear year after year after year, is that in that entire period of hutch, from the beginning to the end, there is not a single fight, there is not a single dispute. No one gets beaten, no one gets cursed, no one gets murdered. Although there are some people who are out of there begging to be murdered. And they do things which as I said, coming somebody coming in saying please murder me is like that. But they are not. Their desire is not satisfied.
Absolutely nothing. And you know, and I know what happens when there are gatherings of a lot of people for any other reason in the world. They're all giving the football games are a classic example.
Again, people from all kinds of diversities joining together to watch football and you know what happens? The whole stadium is trashed and people are fighting and these fans and whatnot whatnot. And it's not that the Muslims don't have differences we not only do we have differences with respect to all of these things, which I mentioned, but we have May Allah forgive us we have lots of differences with regard to our even our beliefs in Islam.
Because when you go for Hajj, the Shia also goes the Sunni also goes the barrel he also goes the Hanafi goes the humble he goes the Jaffe goes the Salafi goes, the Maliki goes, everybody goes
no one who follows no matter goes.
So there are even those differences there ideological and there are theological differences. Despite that, there is not a single fight. There is absolutely no dispute there is no and cursing anybody. Nothing. And as I mentioned not because there is no provocation, there is plenty of progress. With any amount of progress. We Muslims are Muslim people are people they will do things and they don't change but something else is there. And that is what I want to talk about and that's something else is the hug of Allah Subhana Allah and Allah subhanaw taala about Hajj, unless it Lara fossa wala for suka Villa della village, and let's say no shamelessness, and no rebelliousness and no fighting and
no wrangling and no quarreling during Hajj
and the Muslims take this
Oh God, Allah subhanaw taala so seriously,
that they do what they do not do otherwise, which is forgive.
They forgive each other.
They forgive each other. And you can see and I'm sure all of us were willing to hedge. And those of you those of you have not been five minutes mother gives you the opportunity, and Sophia to go next year.
We have seen this not once we have seen this a million times.
People forgive people forgive when they are asked for forgiveness. People forgive even when they are not asked for forgiveness. I mean, you're praying, and somebody will just step on your foot and go away.
I've seen people literally tripping over somebody else's neck and for no reason. I mean, this place to go. What Allah knows best. The man wants to walk like that. And he trips over the man's head and he goes,
he doesn't even bother to say sorry, but nothing, nothing happens.
And I can list a number of stuff. I'm not going to go into that now but I'm saying that all of us know this. People forgive. That is just one reason nothing else. There's only one reason which binds the Muslims together which is the love of Allah Subhana Allah Jalla Jalla Lu and the Sunnah is heavy Mohammed Salah Abu Salim salah, which is La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah, that is the only thing which is common among all the people who come for the touch. La ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasul Allah is the caliber of the Shafi and the Hanafi and the Shia and the Sunni and the Barelvi. And the Obon the and the whoever the whoever, on this one caliber Alhamdulillah we do not differ. We differ
on all other things, but it doesn't matter when we go for Hajj. This one Kalama binds us together like brothers, and like sisters, and the one thing which saves us from fighting and from disputing is this forgiveness for each other. We forgive each other, we forgive each other asked and asked whatever.
Now my question is very simple. My question is a reminder to myself and you which is there it is this home of Allah subhanaw taala where Allah Subhana Allah says Allah refers Allah Fukagawa did Allah village the same Allah Jalla Jalla Allahu Amana who in the same Kitab Al Quran Al Karim, which came to us from Muhammad Mustafa sallallahu alayhi wa sahbihi wa sallam, the same Rob also said why Tassimo be happy lahij me young wala for Rocco.
So what happened to that? The same Rob said all to the rope of Allah subhanaw taala firmly and together
why does he move we have a jelly and Allah did not say further and further. Individual no Jimmy and together while at the for Rocco Lau waters he will be having Elijah me and was enough hold to the rope of Allah subhanaw taala together means do not differ do not differ do not dispute this was enough. But Allah subhanaw taala reinforced and said while at affordable and do not make every cut, do not make far do not make differences do not dispute do not create divisions amongst yourselves. So the same Rob says something in one place and we await and the same robbing the same Kitab which came to us to the same Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said this in another place and we have
absolutely no disregard for it. I asked myself and ask you, how do you intend to answer Allah make sure you will know how you are going to answer Allah.
Because this question will be asked, this question will be asked, and it will especially be asked for those people who not only dispute but to create differences, who create differences between Muslims who create differences between brothers who create differences between people who make this thing and say don't follow this one. Don't follow that one. Don't listen to this one. Don't listen to that. Don't pray behind this one. Don't pray beyond that. Fear Allah. Fear Allah subhanaw taala littler because on the Day of Judgment, you will be caught by your neck and you will have to answer how you create differences amongst the Muslims on what basis if you have a good enough answer
between you and your rabbi Alhamdulillah if you don't have that answer, then
there is a price to pay.
I remind myself anew today we are in a hurry, we got to go for Salah and so on. So I remind myself and you let us make sure that we make we create a we do not have this Neva in our dealings. The Hajj is an example the Hajj is a living example of lessons for us to learn not only to leave behind in the hub, not only to leave behind Nara file minute, but to take home with us for not only that time, but for the rest of our lives. And that's why I started this whole series of
Lessons from Hutch and Abdullah today's lesson of universal brotherhood. What binds the Muslim to the Muslim? is Islam is the love of Allah subhanaw taala and His Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and what is the glue? The glue is forgiveness. We have to learn to forgive one another no matter what, no matter what unconditional forgiveness, asked or asked, because that is what we want from Allah. Ask yourself this question. Do you want unconditional forgiveness from Allah? Or do you want Allah to forgive you on conditions? Because if Allah subhanaw taala puts one single condition, one single condition then we are destined for the pit of the Hellfire, let me assure you, one single
condition is if Allah subhanaw taala simply says one condition which is did you do what you did with sincerity? Did you have a glass in your hammer? This one condition is enough to write Jahannam in our market that made me let me make it very clear what condition is enough and there is not a single person on the face of the planet living today, who can say that I will satisfy this condition, not one single person
no matter who it is, if I like it, this only on this class, just one class, we will all be sitting in the pit of the Hellfire without exception.
So we want unconditional forgiveness from our Jalla Jalla who yes or no. Inshallah, we ask for it, we beg for it. We ask Allah to give it to us, then let us try to practice that in our lives give unconditional forgiveness to your brother and your sister, no matter what they did,
no matter what they did.
And if you cannot do that, then be prepared for Allah subhanho wa Taala to apply the same same standard to you. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to save us from that we ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to do what is pleasing to Him and save us from all that is not pleasing to Him. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept this aid and the sacrifice all those people who did till today and we will who are going to be doing today we ask Allah to accept all the sacrifices we ask Allah subhanaw taala to put Baraka in, in the lives of all those people who have come to him on in Hajj as well as those who are doing the sacrifice in whichever country they are. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to
protect the Muslims from all forms of shadow and all forms of of evil. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect the Muslims from themselves and from their own knifes because this is the biggest evil the biggest evil is our own knifes right sitting right inside our hearts. We ask Allah to forgive to save ourselves from ourselves and to save ourselves from our new force and to save ourselves from the was office of Shaytan was Allah Allah Allah will carry Madali he was abused me in Africa.
