So on equal 100 Allah

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

Allah Al Hamdulillah salatu salam ala Rasulillah no Muslim no man found out when finally my alum Tana was at nine min Yahama Rahimi ask Allah Subhana Allah teachers would benefit us benefit us from what he told us and increase us in knowledge amenable

00:00:39 --> 00:00:44

for restarting Charlotte Allah just quick question how many people are going to judge

00:00:46 --> 00:00:46


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

handle Allah failure how many people have been to Hajj already

00:00:59 --> 00:01:01

how many people are intending to go to Hajj

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

everybody in sha Allah may Allah subhanaw taala grant all the people who are intending to go granddam Hajj May Allah accept from the people who went and the Allah subhanaw taala except from the people are going this year Inshallah, I mean

00:01:22 --> 00:01:23

the first

00:01:24 --> 00:01:31

one of the first Hadith that we learn when we are kids, or when someone takes Shahada.

00:01:32 --> 00:01:39

One of the first Hadith they teach us is Boonie. At Islam Allah comes, Islam is built on five pillars,

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


00:01:43 --> 00:01:47

Salaat cm of Ramadan, Zakat, and hash.

00:01:48 --> 00:02:40

This whole Constitution called Islam, with all its laws and regulations, it built on five pillars. Imagine all of this cam of everything. The way of life is built on these five pillars. So they are extremely important. The shahada, we understand, it should be a pillar because without it, you're not a Muslim. The Salah is five times a day. You see it, you know, you practice it every day. The CM is once a year in Ramadan. The Zakat is once a year, either you're giving or you're getting, but hash has to be a pillar of the deen and millions of Muslims die without performing it. And they are not sinners, because they couldn't afford it financially and physically. So how come harsh?

00:02:41 --> 00:03:17

Were millions of Muslims die without performing it? It's a pillar of the deen and even if you perform it, it takes 10 days or two weeks of your 70 or 80 years of life. So how come Allah Hakeem made this a bad as a pillar Madison, a pillar of the deen Yanni this whole deal built on five one of them 20% of the deen. So that has to be a secret, because that came prescribed. There has to be a comma why hash is a pillar of the day.

00:03:19 --> 00:03:30

Unfortunately, at when, or before I start telling you that in sha Allah to Allah, this short lecture will get it's going to change all your concepts about hash Bismillah.

00:03:31 --> 00:03:37

Many people, many, after hearing this lecture, they said I should have heard that before I go too harsh.

00:03:39 --> 00:03:43

Because most of the time we go to hedge not prepared. And

00:03:45 --> 00:03:49

a lot of us do not have the opportunity to go again.

00:03:50 --> 00:03:58

So it's extremely important to open your heart, open your ears and listen to how am I going to say because within the law, it will be extremely beneficial.

00:04:02 --> 00:04:07

When you ask people when they come back from Hajj, how was the Hajj this year?

00:04:08 --> 00:04:09

Most of the people

00:04:10 --> 00:04:20

exhausting so it's very crowded. A lot of people got sick. Many, many excuses. You know we hear many statements from people. But

00:04:22 --> 00:04:27

I asked the sister one time which is Subhanallah she was a new Muslim.

00:04:28 --> 00:04:48

And she came back from home. And I asked her how was harsh and she said it reminded me of the Day of Judgment. She does not complain about anything. We are so spoiled, very spoiled. We go with the best packages, best hotels, best of everything. And we still find something to complain about.

00:04:50 --> 00:04:52

They promised us shrimps, we got chicken.

00:04:54 --> 00:04:56

I went to Mina there was no coffee mate.

00:04:58 --> 00:04:59

Brother told me Allah

00:05:00 --> 00:05:09

Okay, the other camp had Wi Fi have no Wi Fi. Well, I was gonna cry for him. It's Pamela. Yeah. Annie, you hear things that blow your mind Subhanallah

00:05:12 --> 00:05:23

so one of the main lessons that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala wants us to learn from harsh that it reminds us of your milk piano.

00:05:24 --> 00:05:34

Why do I have to remember your mouthfeel call Allah subhanaw taala in a lady Niobe Luna, Serbian in

00:05:35 --> 00:05:41

loving mother, Shirley, the Bema Natsu young woman is

00:05:43 --> 00:06:25

the one who go astray from the Path of Allah. They have a severe punishment. Why? Because they forgot that there's a day of judgment. So the hash every single year, either some of us are going to hash or definitely 100% Every one of us know someone going to hash whether it's his brother, his sister, his neighbor, his brother at the masjid. So when they come back, they tell us about what happened in hash. So you feel that the whole community, the whole Ummah, is living that hash process SubhanAllah. So remembering the Day of Judgment will make everything change in your life. Imagine that every single day you wake up and all you are concerned about is the Day of Judgment.

00:06:26 --> 00:06:41

Would you sign a contract with Reba? If you remember the day of judgment with the sister take off her hijab? If the if the Day of Judgment right in her face all the time? Would you deal with haram buy and sell haram impossible. Tomorrow, I can't human hisab

00:06:43 --> 00:06:47

that's what I'm concerned about. That's what I'm worried about. I can't I can't afford it.

00:06:48 --> 00:07:26

So the hash comes every single year to remind us of the Day of Judgment. From the moment you decide you want to go you you make sure all the money that you have saved is halal. And you make sure that before you go you gather everybody and your family and you tell your wife if I don't come back, make sure you do this, this and that as if you are heresy and you're going to Yamuna itself, you're done. You're dying. And you call everybody that you know and you tell them please forgive me if I did something wrong. Even when you get there the clothes that you're wearing remind you that you are wearing just similar to your shroud two pieces of white cloth Subhanallah and when you enter the

00:07:26 --> 00:07:58

meal cart, you become like a dead man walking you can you become so helpless that you can clip your nails or take any pieces of your hair you are in from everything reminds you of the Day of Judgment. Even the Saturday between the Safa and Marwah running back and forth between stuff and Mattawa reminds you of the Day of Judgment when you run from one prophet to another, telling him please give me your chauffeur, and they tell you enough CFC until you get to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and in sha Allah to Allah, He will give you a chef ah, may Allah make us all from the people who will get the chef out.

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

Every moment of Hajj reminds you of the Day of Judgment when you get there and you see those millions of people gathered. And remember, you remember the day of judgment? How are we all going to gather in one place? But one of the greatest

00:08:16 --> 00:08:22

evidence that the hash reminds you reminds us of the Day of Judgment?

00:08:24 --> 00:08:29

Or before I tell you that, let me ask you a question for the brothers and sisters who are going to hash

00:08:31 --> 00:08:32

how many?

00:08:33 --> 00:08:34

How many?

00:08:35 --> 00:08:40

Or how many books you have read about how to

00:08:41 --> 00:08:47

perform the hash or how many videos you watched? You? I'm sure you did, right? You watched videos you watched,

00:08:49 --> 00:09:06

attended seminars, how to perform hash, the machine or how to wrap the firearm, what to do here what to do there, right? We all did that. I asked that one time to a crowd of five 600 people and almost everybody raised their hand. And then I asked them the second question.

00:09:07 --> 00:09:14

How many of the people are going to hash red? What did the ROB of hash wants from them?

00:09:16 --> 00:09:20

How many people have has read surah Al Hush, zero.

00:09:22 --> 00:09:37

There is no pseudocode of suited salad. There is no Surah Surah zakat, there is no sort of cm there is no sort of shahada but there is still at an edge and everybody goes to they read everything that a human being right and they did not write what the rub of hygiene wants from them and

00:09:38 --> 00:09:39

reads were too harsh.

00:09:41 --> 00:09:45

Why first Aya Yeah, are you hon.

00:09:46 --> 00:09:54

It took the comb in Zanna Tessa, show you on Avi

00:09:56 --> 00:09:59

as the biggest deal that hush comes every year to remind us of the Day of Judgment

00:10:00 --> 00:10:33

The first area in Surah till has is all mankind feel Allah the earthquake that shaking on the Day of Judgment is che on our team you think that two 3 million pushing each other is che on our vein? Wait till you go today with judgment you think 120 degrees is shade on a VM is something great? Wait till you see the sun only one mile away. You think waiting around for three four days stay on the wait till you see 50,000 years the day of judgment that is of him

00:10:36 --> 00:10:44

read the whole ShoreTel hash you will never see much telephone you will never see Arafa you will never see Mina you will never see shamrock

00:10:45 --> 00:10:47

never read it all

00:10:50 --> 00:10:58

because that's not what Allah wants us to do. This is monastic that you have to do this to show you know you have to do all these things. Without them there's no hedge even though

00:10:59 --> 00:11:05

I'll help you out, you will never see it mentioned and circle hedge because there's something bigger,

00:11:07 --> 00:11:08


00:11:09 --> 00:11:21

to be derived from all these monastic Datawatch and all this without them there is no hash but what is the purpose of these things? Go Rizzolatti hash first Aya all mankind fear Allah

00:11:24 --> 00:11:28

that day is terrible day. Listen to the second. Yong

00:11:30 --> 00:11:31

Yong Yong

00:11:33 --> 00:11:35

could know more of the art in

00:11:37 --> 00:11:40

Watauga Okaloosa Hamlin

00:11:41 --> 00:11:46

with Ron Suzuka will

00:11:47 --> 00:12:27

be suka. Weather can work in the mall he showed the the on in has, you are making sure you're holding your mother, you're holding your wife, you're holding your daughter, you don't want anybody to touch them. Allah is telling us on that day, the mother feeding her baby, which is the most beautiful, most tender, most kind image ever a mother feeding her baby, she's gonna drop him, leave him run away from him. And the pregnant woman's gonna drop her load. And you're gonna look at the people that you think they're drunk and they're not drunk. But because of the severe punishment.

00:12:29 --> 00:12:33

You think pushing an elbow is this is going to be a problem. All of this to remind you,

00:12:34 --> 00:12:35

this is nothing.

00:12:36 --> 00:12:37

This is nothing.

00:12:38 --> 00:13:03

Oh, this is preparation. Allah is telling us as if he's telling us. If you do have right, one time is enough for you in your lifetime. That's why hygiene is not you have to go every single year, every 10 years, every 15 years. No, once in the lifetime if you do it right. It's enough. Unfortunately, how many people go to hedge and come back? Nothing has changed.

00:13:05 --> 00:13:06

Nothing has changed.

00:13:07 --> 00:13:44

But now we are preparing ourselves. We are listening to this. So I can go to hedge and preparing myself. What should I expect? As I'm going there, and I'm seeing the path. I remember the day of judgment as I'm there. And I'm seeing the heat and I'm feeling the heat. I feel I remember the day of judgment as I'm going in the SE and between the Safa and Marwa I remember the day of judgment in every step of the way, has comes and remind us of the Day of Judgment. That is the main reason for hash Lea shadow Manaphy Allah, this is one of the best benefits

00:13:45 --> 00:13:48

second to second third iron circle hash

00:13:50 --> 00:13:51

Wamena Nassima yo Jaiden

00:13:54 --> 00:13:55

and there's a lot of people who argue

00:13:58 --> 00:14:02

no argument and harsh law professor whether

00:14:03 --> 00:14:04

whether Judah and Phil Hodge

00:14:06 --> 00:14:30

Rasuwa Salam promised us whomsoever go to Hajj, and he does not have any relationship with his wife. And he does not does not does not do any evil deeds. He will come back brand new, baby, clean. Look at the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala look at the greatest 6070 years of sins, delete zero.

00:14:31 --> 00:14:45

Law I look at the great opportunity. That's why you're actually that's why my brother, if you can afford it financially and physically, and you did not go yet, you are a major sinner. You have committed a major sin

00:14:46 --> 00:15:00

because Allah did not make it an obligation on every single Muslim. He said Minister ta la subida whoever can afford it. So don't go buy or borrow money with river to go to Hajj uses it's not a master knew because

00:15:00 --> 00:15:29

If you can't afford it, you don't have to go. If you don't borrow money to go to highs hamdulillah You're excused. But if you have the health, and you have the wealth, and you decided, no, my daughter's getting married, my son's graduating, I need a new home. I need a new car. No, that is priority priorities in life that are priorities. And this as a person who can afford it should be on the top of your list should be on the top of your list.

00:15:33 --> 00:15:37

Normal Shatila, no argument, I'll tell you about my first package.

00:15:39 --> 00:15:42

It was around 2002. Three.

00:15:45 --> 00:16:10

You know, they give you in the package 1-234-567-8910 We're gonna do this. We're going to do that. We're going to take a bus from here, this this and that luxury air conditioned? Oh, that the guy we went with he made sure that he breaks every single rule on that package, everyone to the level that we got there. And even though that was the gold platinum package, no rooms,

00:16:11 --> 00:16:27

no rooms, there are no rooms. What am I going to do? We have in the lobby 48 People in the lobby. Some people lost it. Keep in mind. One of my brothers, he told me brother badger. My test started from JFK.

00:16:31 --> 00:16:43

Some some of us might start here. Some of us might start there. Some of us may have nothing. But get ready. Get ready. Be ready. Always be very patient. And we're going to come to the patient's part.

00:16:44 --> 00:17:03

No argument. Some of the people in the package in our group, they lost it. One of them was a dentist. He said you know what? I can afford to come back again. I can take this anymore. He went and start beating the guy with with the package. It's another one that's harsh anymore. I can't take it anymore. Five, six days nothing.

00:17:04 --> 00:17:06

And every time you go to the guy with 100

00:17:10 --> 00:17:11

Don't argue and

00:17:12 --> 00:17:14

is using an area to defend themselves.

00:17:16 --> 00:17:45

Yeah, he just want to eat and then at the end, he said Carlos I got your food. And we said Hamdulillah He said the food is in that hotel next next door. We were in we were wandering but because we saw hungry How can we stay in this hotel and you go eat and other hotel. But because of the hunger and because we haven't you know normal not too many choices. Yanni. We said okay, so we went to the other hotel and we start, you know, having our breakfast and lunch and there. And then we found out that that hotel was sponsored by the king and it's free for everybody.

00:17:46 --> 00:18:18

The guy has nothing to do with it. SubhanAllah. Now sometimes I don't want you to have an impression that all the people are bad. No. Sometimes the people are very sincere. The people who run the packages, they are very sincere, but they find difficulties from the people over there to give them the accommodations that they promised them. So don't think that they are doing that on purpose. Some of them are really excused but maybe very few Allah Allah Allah, may Allah subhanaw taala forgive them. No matter the point is, no matter what happens, do not argue.

00:18:20 --> 00:18:36

Control yourself. Control your anger. Leave him to Allah subhanaw taala if he is doing it on purpose, Allah will take care of him if something happened and he could not you know, the people do not keep their promise. May Allah subhanaw taala forgive him and help him he's not doing it on purpose.

00:18:39 --> 00:18:40

One time a minute.

00:18:42 --> 00:18:55

Because it's very easy to lose your temper why? Because we are used to so much luxury. We are very spoiled. Very very spoiled. Especially the American group. very spoiled. air condition.

00:18:57 --> 00:19:33

Everywhere you go, fans, cars, big homes. SubhanAllah. So you go there you are with four people, three strangers in the same room, you have a tent, maybe 8090 people in it, and you never get used to that so it's not you know, it's not the comfort that you used to. You have to really sacrifice that comfort zone for few days. Keep reminding yourself, keep telling yourself it's a week or 10 days of my life time. Consider yourself in jail for 10 days.

00:19:34 --> 00:20:00

But this is very rewarding. You're going to come back as a brand new baby, they push you they elbow you hamdulillah Take it easy, do not argue and harsh otherwise you're going to lose that reward that are so lost as salaam promised Nagi dial in has no G dial they said this boss has air conditioning you find that the bus is all fans. Patients. Be very patient which is our third

00:20:00 --> 00:20:44

instep extreme patients, my brothers, my sisters will lie. If I keep repeating the word patients all through the lecture is not enough. You need loads and loads of patients, you're going to see millions and millions of people from all over the world, different cultures, different language. How do you expect them all to get this it's not going to happen. You're going to see things you do not like. You're going to smell things that you do not like, be patient. Be extremely patient. Whatever happens, remind yourself, I am being tested our brother, he said from JFK, I started I lost my bag. Even though he was leaving, he lost his bag leaving and I got to Medina he was going to Medina first

00:20:44 --> 00:20:56

the minute I arrived. While a wallet is gone, $2,000 cash in it all my information, test after test after test after test and Wallahi not one word.

00:20:57 --> 00:21:43

Not one word all the time smiling good hamdulillah because he did not do anything to lose. He's not like get the bag and throw it away and make his wallet get lost. Things happen. And keep in mind Allah test you to purify you, Allah give you these small calamities to test to see how how strong is your patience, the more patient you are, the more you will be rewarded. So be very, very patient, very patient and do not complain. Do not complain. Why this why that? No, if you can go and ask politely but don't make a big deal. Because a lot of times over there a lot of times you see a huge line in the bathroom. You see a huge line and then the for the for the food. You see people and

00:21:43 --> 00:22:17

tawaf, elBulli and he hurting you really hurting you. Just be patient and keep going. You're going to see people doing a lot of better. Be patient and keep going. Keep going. Keep. Continue with your tawaf continue with your side. Don't let that bother you keep going, keep going. Too many things you're going to see that will annoy you, especially in alpha. Alpha is like Subhan Allah, Allah, it kills your heart, as if you're walking in a dumpster, garbage everywhere, everywhere garbage, and hurts us any I had

00:22:18 --> 00:22:51

an empty water bottle, because we're not used to throwing anything I kept on holding it even though I'm walking through bottles all over, but I never I couldn't throw it because we're not used to that. But people throwing everything. Be patient, be patient, there are people you are living in a five star hotel with air conditioning and everything. There are people you're going to see and Allah is going to make you see them. They are sitting on the street, all they had was the price of the of the ticket. That's all they had. And they're sleeping on the street and they're eating, they have nothing and ALLAH blessed you so much luxury, be patient, be patient.

00:22:53 --> 00:23:21

Allah Allah subhanaw taala on purpose made you see these people, you're gonna see them one blanket under one blanket over and that's it and he tells you go sit down with them. Go sit down with them, go eat with them, especially in minute. Every big, big trays of food are coming inside and you see outside you're gonna see them tomorrow when you go, you're gonna see people 1000s and 1000s are sitting over there waiting for them somebody from the from the tent or from the camp to go outside and bring them a plate.

00:23:23 --> 00:23:47

And after we finished in the tent, stomach like this food thrown in the garbage, La ilaha illallah be different. Allah all I'm telling you is from experience, be different. Go outside sit with these people. That's what I saw was so nice to do. Sit with the pool, take them food, sit with them. Allah Hey, brother called me yesterday. May Allah reward him. It was his first time, Hajj last year. I promised him I'm gonna go with him. Something happened I couldn't leave.

00:23:48 --> 00:24:24

He said, Brother, I want to send some money for these people a minute. You know, somebody's going there. I'm gonna give you a pack tax of 20 is just somebody go there and give them because what I saw, I can't I can't accept myself living all this luxury. And Allah bless you so much money. And I'm looking at the people here. They're suffering. These are my brothers. These are my sisters. Three days, four days and minute. They're sitting there outside. Where do they go use the bathroom? Where are they? And we are complaining because maybe I have to wait five minutes for the bathroom. 10 minutes we start complaining come on and we'll fight people fighting in the bathroom. That's why

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

I'm preparing you be be very patient, very patient, very patient. It's okay the shower took a little bit longer. The guy in front of you was was yelling was screaming, calm him down. Just don't let anything bother you.

00:24:40 --> 00:24:59

This is what he teaches us. Because when you come back from home, you'd be very patient with your wife. You will be very patient with your children. You will be very patient with your community members. You will be very patient with the people working for you. This is what ash comes and teaches us. First it teaches us how to remember they will

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

Just seconds teaches us not to argue. Otherwise we go to hygiene we come back and our life did not change a bit. That's not what the reason of hygiene. The first i Tacoma fear Allah look at all the areas of hash in Bukhara anywhere. You will definitely find the word taqwa in there. Always what Takala What duckula wife always tells you to feel ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada fourth lesson of harsh

December Indonesia very easy. Everybody goes finish and come back.

00:25:57 --> 00:26:06

That's not the case. Everybody from everywhere doing the same thing wearing the same clothes. Isn't that

00:26:07 --> 00:26:31

there has to be a lesson you see your brothers over there? The King and the peasant the white and the black the poor and the rich they all wearing the same exact thing doing the same exact thing. Is that a coincidence? There is a lesson yet one we don't see all these things all we look at or we look at is this guy did this to me. This guy did that to me. No Yeah, he here you're gonna leave with a different mind. different mindset.

00:26:34 --> 00:27:22

When you come back to your community, you don't say Oh, this Arab. The spec Stan these Indians this Bengalis to in the middle. We are brothers. We are brothers. This is what Hajj comes and teaches us every year. It teaches us in a Kurama calm in the MA here at car COMM The best of you in the sight of Allah is not the Arab is not the Pakistan is not the NZ as the one who has more Taqwa. When we're going to wake up and understand that every year hush comes and remind us wake up stop this. Can you imagine the whole Muslim Ummah united, Allahu Akbar who would touch us, from Indonesia to Turkey to Qatar to to the Arab world all united. Can you imagine? Who would who would even dare to talk about

Muhammad Salah Salem, who would there

00:27:26 --> 00:27:31

but because we are separated, we go to the hatchery and we separate and we fight and we argue, oh, this

00:27:32 --> 00:27:37

leader of the package is Pakistani, he is going the Hanafi way this guy is going

00:27:38 --> 00:27:39

fear Allah.

00:27:40 --> 00:27:41

Fear Allah.

00:27:43 --> 00:28:13

Do your homework before you go. Don't worry about everybody else. They go there. I saw so many people in Hawaii, they don't know nothing. They did not prepare themselves. How come? When you when you have a wedding, you prepare for a year. When you're going for a vacation, you prepare for six, seven months. When you had a business opportunity business plan. You start preparing and asking many questions. How come when it came to as young as the guy over there will tell us everything? No. Do your homework. Do your homework.

00:28:14 --> 00:28:37

Well, I wish that every hedge will attend something like this, everyone because the other stuff how to do this how to do that Shama Imam Nadeem we'll cover next week, these are very simple 123 do this, this this and that they will known but what I'm teaching you today, you will never hear it anywhere. And you will remember everything I'm telling you, when you get there.

00:28:38 --> 00:28:40

It will really give you

00:28:43 --> 00:28:50

a shield from all these evil things that will tempt you to fall into and lose your hash.

00:28:52 --> 00:28:54

So third, fourth is the unity

00:28:56 --> 00:28:57


00:29:00 --> 00:29:05

hedge comes in teaches us an extremely important lesson

00:29:10 --> 00:29:15

it teaches us and remind us that I'm slave. I'm abd

00:29:20 --> 00:29:24

Why am I going seven times around the Kaaba. Why not nine?

00:29:26 --> 00:29:35

Sanjana Wattana Why am I picking a stone? I'm throwing it at a stone. I'm going around the stone. I'm kissing the stone does not make any sense.

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

Son Yeah. And

00:29:45 --> 00:29:59

you see him malt. You see a brother that you know very well. All I know this guy from Dallas. His houses is $1.5 million. He has 17 businesses and he's sleeping on the ground and Miss Danica Why doesn't he go to a hotel and was terrified. So no, no

00:30:00 --> 00:30:01

I'm gonna stay on the floor.

00:30:06 --> 00:30:07

So when you come back

00:30:08 --> 00:30:09

from your house

00:30:11 --> 00:30:25

and you hear that there is this company deal with Reba. I don't deal with it somewhere in Atlanta. You hear that? The Hijab is a must center and a foreigner. You hear that this is haram sent here and now I find I don't argue.

00:30:26 --> 00:30:55

I listened and I obey. This is what Hajj comes every single year and teaches us Samina Wattana. I listen and obey. I don't have the luxury to do it three, four times the Hajj. I don't have the luxury, you see Subhanallah Can you imagine you are in hajj and you're wearing your ramen during the Hajj days. Can you during the Hajj? Allah hey, I want to book a package. No, no, no, no, you can't do anything anymore. Everything is done here.

00:30:57 --> 00:31:10

Just like dunya and akhira everything is done before you put the clothes on. Similarly, when you get to the akhira everything is done here. You can go there and ask I want this I want that there is no people selling stuff over there.

00:31:13 --> 00:31:16

Everything has to be done right now.

00:31:17 --> 00:31:18

So the hash

00:31:20 --> 00:31:26

comes and teaches us that you are the Abbot, you are a slave to Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:31:29 --> 00:31:30

Another lesson from the hajj

00:31:33 --> 00:31:37

it reminded us that you have a Do you have an enemy,

00:31:39 --> 00:32:24

this enemy that separate between you and your wife, between the wife and her mother in law between the brother and the brother, his name is shaitan and every year the hash comes in reminds us that there is a shaitan there's an Iblees there is this devil that all his goal in life is to take you away from the path of Allah and go with him to *. So the the hash comes to remind us, when you come back, when you come back, make sure you say Bismillah before you eat so you don't feed the shaitan Bismillah before you until you're home. So do you want let the shaitan stay. And another one which is a lot of us do not do an A Subhanallah you heard it yesterday Bismillah when you take off

00:32:24 --> 00:32:25

your clothes,

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

if you do not you are letting the short version the shayateen watch you naked

00:32:34 --> 00:32:37

and this is most of the time when the shy teenager the shouting takes over

00:32:38 --> 00:32:51

is when the person taking off his clothes or when the person goes into the bathroom and he does not say that you are of the bathroom. Because when you go into the bathroom, you're saying that I have the bathroom so you will keep the gin away. So all these things

00:32:53 --> 00:32:56

the hush comes and trainers that in the hedge

00:32:57 --> 00:33:17

I throw these tables. I throw these troubles at a wall just to remind me that I have a shaitan I have an enemy that is on his goal is to take me away from the path of Allah. So when I come back here, I tried to fight him in every aspect of of the way

00:33:19 --> 00:33:22

there is a beautiful Hadith I'll share this with you

00:33:24 --> 00:33:26

an amazing Hadith that

00:33:31 --> 00:33:33

sort of loss on Allah and he was salam

00:33:37 --> 00:33:38

said listen to this I'm gonna read it

00:33:39 --> 00:33:43

at length in English right away inshallah just because of the time

00:33:47 --> 00:33:52

of the law normal and I will finish with this inshallah so you can choose to have the rest of the day off and continue with your

00:33:54 --> 00:34:00

seminar Moroni, Allah and Omar he said, I was sitting with a Salah Salem and two men came

00:34:02 --> 00:34:04

and they said, uracil Allah,

00:34:05 --> 00:34:07

we came to ask you some questions.

00:34:09 --> 00:34:11

Lay this hadith. After you hear it.

00:34:12 --> 00:34:27

You want to go back to highs? No, look at that. Look at highs, no matter how much money everybody suffers and highs with the you know, with the crowds and with the heat and all that stuff. But still no matter what happened. You asked the guy would you like to go back? Yes. Nobody say no. Nobody.

00:34:29 --> 00:34:40

So they said yes, Allah, we have a few questions you want to ask? So So as I said them, he said, if you would like you could pause the questions, or if you'd like, I will tell you what you came to ask for.

00:34:42 --> 00:34:59

So they said, go ahead. jasola. Tell us what we came to ask for. He said in salatu salam, you came to ask me about leaving your house and going to the harem and what is the reward for it and

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

about praying to raka after tawaf, and what is the reward for it, and the Saturday between the Safa and Marwah? And what is the reward for it? And staying in the evening in minute, and what is the reward for it stoning the camera? And what is the reward for slaughtering an animal? And what is the reward for it? And what is the reward for the love and the Father? So the man said, I swear by Allah that He sent you, this is exactly what we came to ask you.

00:35:28 --> 00:35:48

Now listen to the answer. My brothers who went to Hajj and my brothers who are going to hash I want you to live this hadith before you go. So all your all your highs will change. Listen to this, so called Annie salatu. Salam, as for you, as for you leaving your home, going to the bathe in Haram.

00:35:50 --> 00:35:52

Subhan Allah, every step,

00:35:53 --> 00:35:57

every step you make, every step you make.

00:36:01 --> 00:36:15

A reward will be written for you Hassan, and the car will be wiped. Every step, you're talking about 3000 Something miles from here, or maybe more. How many miles is from here

00:36:17 --> 00:37:03

7000 miles, 7000 miles, if you multiply it by how many feet this is how many has an AD This is already written, and how many say you add erased. So Salem, of course, he said, every time your camel, lift the foot and put a foot it has an I will be written and the car will be white. As for your record to raka after tawaf, then it is equivalent to freeing a slave from the children of smile, freeing the slave every time you see a reward that tells you equal to freeing a slave. That means you are doing something that will increase your possibility of your neck to be freed from because we don't have slaves now. You're not to be freed from the hellfire.

00:37:04 --> 00:37:16

As for your tawaf around the side between the Safa and Marwa is equal to 370 slaves as for your staying till the evening in the Arafa

00:37:17 --> 00:37:43

then Allah descends to the sky of the dunya. And he bows about you to the angels and say, My slave have come to me looking rough from every deep valley, hoping for My Mercy. So if there's if there are sins, listen, Jaquan if their sins were equivalent to them to the amount of sand, or the drops of rain, or the form of the sea, I have forgiven them.

00:37:45 --> 00:37:53

I have forgiven them. So go my slaves, you have been forgiven for what you have done in the past. And as for the stoning

00:37:55 --> 00:37:56

of the Jamaat

00:37:57 --> 00:38:12

Subhanallah you know that we when we do Amen, all your minor sins are forgiven, you never hear a man that your major sins are forgiven. As you for your stoning of the Shamrock with every stone, it removes a major sin.

00:38:14 --> 00:38:17

Every stone removes a major sin.

00:38:18 --> 00:38:26

As for your slaughtering, then Subhan Allah, as for the reward of slaughtering, it is saved with your Lord.

00:38:27 --> 00:38:45

Nobody knows what is the reward for slaughtering. And as for the shaping of your head, then your reward for every strand of hair that you shave, you get a Hassan and his sin his wife. So make sure you go with an Afghan sha Allah, every sin every hair, one

00:38:46 --> 00:39:12

Hassan has written and one say here is erased. And as for you're performing the tawaf of WADA, then by this time, you are performing the tawaf with no sin upon you. And an angel comes and place his hand between your shoulders and say, perform good deeds in what you face in the future, in what you face of the future for everything in the past has been forgiven.

00:39:13 --> 00:39:16

Aloha Akbar. That's why Rasulillah Salam said

00:39:21 --> 00:39:33

Allah said, I suppose I said and said that Allah said, if I give my slave the health and the wealth, and he does not visit me once every five years, he is my room.

00:39:37 --> 00:39:45

Now we all know that hashes once in a lifetime, but this hadith element explained he is my room he is deprived from all these rewards.

00:39:46 --> 00:39:59

The hash that is followed has been done. But if you can afford to go once every five years, it is highly recommended and that hadith, that Allah subhanaw taala if somebody does not want poverty, for

00:40:00 --> 00:40:42

Another hedge by another hedge, you know, every five years go to hedge so you can get all these rewards that are promised in this hadith with every hair with every step SubhanAllah. So, my brothers and sisters, my last advice to all of you and to the people who specifically to the people are going to hash, I repeat patients. Be extremely patient from the moment your wife bothered you. She wants to go shopping over there, make sure my sister do not waste your time. dedicate one two hours for these things and do not waste that precious, very precious time. These are the days of the hedger which is in sha Allah to Allah for us who are not going to hash. I'm going to give you a

00:40:42 --> 00:41:01

whole lot but about the virtue of these days that they are the best days of the year that are male in them are better than jihad. Yeah, Annie, we will talk about that. Another thing in sha Allah Tala. So inshallah Tada go with the mentality, that Allah subhanho wa taala. Nobody goes to hush, except that ALLAH has invited him.

00:41:03 --> 00:41:09

Don't ever think, keep this in mind. Don't ever think that's your money, that got you to hush.

00:41:11 --> 00:41:31

Or lie. Don't ever think that there are millionaires or billionaires has never came their mind never crossed their mind. So the idea that you're going to hedge by itself is a huge honor. Because Allah chooses the people who will permit them to go and visit him in his home in his house.

00:41:33 --> 00:42:08

So that by itself is a great honor. So be appreciative of this great, great invitation from Allah subhanaw taala be very patient. And may Allah subhanaw taala accept from all of you. And please keep your Emanuel dua for the brothers who are going keep your community in your da make a lot of data for yourself. Make a lot of data for your children make a lot of for your parents, especially if they have passed away, make a lot of drive for them, especially in RFM. In other fact, I will give you the best advice on how to fit in how to fight you're going to see before you go to alpha.

00:42:09 --> 00:42:12

Tell your wife tell everybody I don't know you.

00:42:14 --> 00:42:20

I don't know anybody. Those nine hours I don't know anybody. Take yourself out of the

00:42:21 --> 00:42:55

the tent if you can go sit somewhere alone. Take an apple with you don't eat too much that day. The bathroom are very very horrible. Nada. Don't eat anything on that day, that day before just a little bit survive. Don't drink a lot of water because Allah will first strip the brothers four hours in after which is you can count it by the second how precious it is the best day of the year. For hours waiting for the turn in the bathroom. This is how we want to waste out of it. So make sure sukiyaki it's a little bit so you won't be considered fasting while we are fasting here just to eat a little bit just to survive.

00:42:57 --> 00:43:13

dedicate the whole day of harder for after you pray the door because you're gonna combine door and acid after that you sit down from that moment you finish your acid stay till Muslim non stop da non stop. This is an approach Alhaji Arafa

00:43:14 --> 00:43:32

00:43:33 --> 00:43:44

They used to plan six, seven months in advance right? And take a horse or a donkey or a camel or whatever. Right? And they go Now listen, just to show you how

00:43:45 --> 00:43:58

lucky we are. How fortunate we are. Can you imagine my grandfather left from Pakistan and he's going to Mecca let's say because most of them they do not make it they die on the on the way

00:44:00 --> 00:44:06

let's assume that he arrived in Mecca on 10 of the Asia

00:44:08 --> 00:44:10

some delay happened what happened

00:44:12 --> 00:44:12

what happens

00:44:17 --> 00:44:21

has this over has to wait another year

00:44:23 --> 00:44:26

here so I'll hush

00:44:27 --> 00:44:28


00:44:30 --> 00:44:31

00:44:33 --> 00:44:45

00:45:00 --> 00:45:04

A golden opportunity you never know if it's ever comes back never know

00:45:05 --> 00:45:07

could be your last hedged Allahu Allah.

00:45:08 --> 00:45:42

So make sure you take advantage and there are so many, many, many other tips I will give you but I just want to prepare you spiritually and other stuff maybe we'll talk about it in during after a failure or so on or in the future Insha Allah, Allah accept from all of you.
