a salaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakato Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. While early he was heavy edge mine, my brothers and sisters, the pilgrimage is a pillar of Islam, it is known as Hajj It is one of the five pillars and it is compulsory upon the person who is able and capable. So you may be able in terms of physical ability, you have to also be able in terms of financial capability, as well as number three, the permissions to actually enter that land. This is very, very important. Once you have all that capacity, it becomes compulsory on you to go for the next pilgrimage and in the pilgrimage. Allah has definitely

00:01:02--> 00:01:41

kept a lot of healing and much hope. We lead our lives we've done things we may not be proud of. We are human beings, we've sinned, we've actually faltered, we want to reset our lives. We want to start again, as clean as the day we were born and even cleaner. Subhan Allah so what would happen Allah says, You know what, if you are to go for Hajj, then that Hajj would actually help reset you, it would give you an opportunity to rekindle that relationship with Allah upon the highest of levels. So, if you look at verse number 197 of Swords bacara Allah says Allah had Jewish Home Hello Matt, from

00:01:43--> 00:01:52

Giovanna Rafa Tawana for Sukkot Allah je de la Finca Hajj is in prescribed months, whoever

00:01:53--> 00:02:35

has the obligation of Hajj on their shoulders during that time, they should not engage in anything wrong during the time of Hajj, they shouldn't engage in immorality, they shouldn't engage in sin, they shouldn't engage in argument because all of that would heal you. If you observe that the right thing Subhanallah you become conscious of how you are what you're doing what you're supposed to be doing. Similarly, take a look at the Hajj. Allah heals your heart by reminding you that you know what you are one of millions or billions of people around, you've got to dress in a specific way. Everyone has to be uniform, the same doing the same thing at the same time. There is great healing

00:02:35--> 00:03:21

in this healing. healing happens when you appreciate others and acknowledge that you're just one of a large group of people and you need to fulfill their rights and it's not going to be easy, but you enjoy it because Allah is watching and He rewards you for it. So Allah Almighty tells us about that Hajj and says during the Hajj, you must call out to Allah supplicate to him. Ask him what ever needs you have. Allah creates needs in your lives and mine so that we can call out to Him. Imagine if you didn't have a need at all. Why would you call out to Allah, we have two types of needs. One is something we don't have that we want and to is something that we have that we don't want to

00:03:21--> 00:04:04

disappear or to go away. So you have to ponder over your health and the gifts of Allah, your wealth, your blessings, your family, your siblings, your spouse, whoever else it may be that you have, don't say I don't have a need or a lot. My need is that I don't want you to take this away from me, Oh Allah. That's also a prayer. So Allah creates these needs these concerns. Call out to Allah leave it in the hands of Allah, He will do the best for you. So my beloved brothers and sisters look at how Allah wants us to call out to Him, especially during auspicious times, like the time of Hajj in hajj. What an auspicious moment. What an amazing place. And here you are calling out to Allah, the

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

healing achieved from Hajj cannot be described except by the one who's been on that Hajj. So Alhamdulillah I have been, I'm sure many of you have been May Allah take those who have not been for Hajj for Hajj, Armenia to be. So my brothers and sisters are with that Allah is telling you worship Allah during those days. And when you ask Allah for things, if you want a wholesome healing, and if you want beautiful hope in the mercy of Allah, you need to know that Allah Almighty requires that you call out to Him not just for the worldly things, but even for that which is going to come in the Hereafter, so that you can rest assured that unfine Subhana Allah Subhana Allah, so Allah says,

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

Don't just ask for the dunya which means this worldly life I've been it now for dunya Hassan within our field, it has Anna you should need to

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

Ask for the hereafter as well and Savior from hellfire. Striking that balance is something amazing. Once you call out to Allah to forgive you to improve your worldly life, not to take away from you what he's blessed you with. You need to ask him also about the future the hereafter Oh Allah when I die, have mercy on me. And then leave it to Allah. He heard you, you said it, you meant it. It's registered next to your name. You won't go wrong. stop doubting it. shaitan wants us to doubt. Allah says, Don't doubt it. You called out to me. You asked me for paradise every day, you asked me to forgive you when you met me. Here I am. I'm meeting you. And you're forgiven, because nothing that

00:05:43--> 00:06:22

you said or did was not recorded it was recorded. And I am the Most Merciful, the most forgiving, here I am. Imagine the hope in that. Imagine how lovely we feel when we know that Allah has heard me, Allah loves me. I've asked Allah to give me paradise I'm trying. And I say robina atina. for dunya has an affair it has an O Allah give me goodness in this world, and goodness in the hereafter. And I kept repeating that and I asked Allah for that. My brothers and sisters, repeat those supplications even if you're not in charge, but when you're in hajj, don't only call out to Allah for worldly things. Because when you want a beautiful healing, you need to be comforted, that when I

00:06:22--> 00:07:03

die, I'm going to a much better place that is healing, your conviction will heal you, your faith will heal you the fact that you know that Allah has heard you and will give you what you're asking for will heal you may Allah subhanahu, WA to Allah grant us goodness. So we need to make sure that we don't do bad or evil against fellow human beings, because in that case, they will not be as forgiving as Allah, and they might not forgive us, which may cause an issue for us and it will disturb our healing. May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us goodness, a quick one. If you want to heal even from that, you just need to go to them and seek forgiveness. My brother, you know what I

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

said a few nasty things about you forgive me. The fact that you got it off your chest and you spoke to them will heal you. It will grant you a lot of renewed hope in the mercy of Allah. And they may choose not to forgive you, but at least you tried at least you spoke to them and said, You know what, please forgive me. Allah has watched that. So what Allah will do is on the Day of Judgment, that statement is in your favor. And perhaps that person will then forgive you at the time, were taught that maybe you could do a little charity on behalf of that person so that on the Day of Judgment, they see you did the charity on their behalf. And at the same time, you said a few nasty

00:07:39--> 00:08:19

things about them. And they will then let go of the nasty things because they see the good things. That's not guaranteed. But it's just one of the ways that some of the scholars have made mention of to be able to remedy a situation when someone hasn't forgiven you for something you've said about them or something you did that was oppressive against them. So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us that when you enter into submission for Allah, don't be selective. You need to enter into submission in totality. This first 208 are Surah Baqarah Yeah, I knew hell. Naveen man, odo lwvc, Mika.

00:08:22--> 00:09:11

All you who believe into into submission in totality, in order for you to achieve that comfort, in order for you to achieve the hope in order for you to heal. Try to follow all the instructions of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We are human, we're weak. Yes, we may not be able to fulfill everything at once. But we need to acknowledge that we should be fulfilling x, y, and Zed all of it. Now, if I'm weak with x, and I'm fulfilling y and Zed, it doesn't mean I must justify why x is not important. It is say for example, if I'm struggling with my dress code, I shouldn't now try and look for a loophole where someone somewhere said, well, dress code is not so important. It is very important.

00:09:11--> 00:09:58

But maybe I'm weak. So I pray that Allah grant me the strength to get there. I'm not going to deny that it's my duty. Because then I'm asking for trouble. I'm going to lose my comfort. But if I want to heal, I need to become correct in my dress code. And I need to stop this competition but the globe wants me to dive into of fashion and design and what what I look like and what I have, it becomes such a rat race that we lose focus that the main aim is to prepare for your hereafter because this world is temporary. Some of the happiest people were those who never used makeup in their lives and I'm not against it, but I'm just giving you an example. And some of the happiest

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

people are those who didn't ever

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

have cars or who didn't ever own much, they didn't have their own homes, they never had a proper income. Those are some of the happiest people when, when they focused on the hereafter and understood the temporary nature of this life. And life is temporary. You're going to have all this and prove your point to who? To mortals who don't even care about you. To who, to everyone whom you won't even know Subhanallah so they cheered you on but you lost your relationship with Allah in the process that wasn't good enough to heal. The first relationship is that with Allah, the rest is secondary. If they appreciate what Allah has given you, Alhamdulillah people nowadays, they're not

00:10:44--> 00:11:08

even happy with what they look like Subhana Allah, so Allah saying, enter into submission in totality, we gave you your looks, we gave you everything, be happy with it. That's good. We've spoken about this in a previous episode, but on hamdulillah We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us or goodness, Apolo Kali, or sallallahu wasallam Allah Nabina Muhammad wa known as xeno Minato Nima
