Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Smilla Rahmanir Rahim Al hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Nabi him stuff about my dear viewers welcome to another edition of our seas history of Hajj. In today's episode in sha Allah we're going to speak another very prominent sign that Allah Almighty deposited in the Haram amongst the ayat which he referred to in number 97 of Surah, Allah and Milan when he said, fee

00:00:30--> 00:01:23

begginer in it in a national haram, yet plural of signs by unit clear proves then one of those signs is the Blackstone alhaja rule. So, the Blackstone brothers and sisters, is the most precious stone on Earth on the entire Earth. And within the cabin, it is the most precious stone in the Kaaba, itself. The bricks and the rocks of the Kaaba may change over time. But the black stone is the same ever since Ibrahim Ali salaam, raised the foundations of the Kaaba, because this is not like any other stone. It is not one of the stones on Earth. It was like a hated on Earth. Rather, it is one of the stones of paradise the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam assayed and had a role so the black

00:01:23--> 00:02:10

stone is a stone that came down from heaven. When it's male who is helping and assisting his father Ibrahim Ali Salam in constructing the Kaaba Ibrahim you support the bricks on top of each other. And it's now you would collect the bricks and hand them over to him. And then there was one spot there is remaining. So by the time is now Isla Salah moon to look for a stone to put it there. Gibreel Arias Salam came down from heaven, as the Hadith tells us and he handed over to him this stone was it black? When do you realize that I'm dead? So no, it wasn't rather, on the contrary, it was whiter than the milk. In the Hadith the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam assayed and huddle. So the

00:02:10--> 00:02:26

Blackstone used to be whiter than the milk. First one is cindered when Gibreel Ali salaam brought it down from heaven, and he handed it over to Ibrahim Ali salaam to place it in this corner to the south eastern side of the acaba.

00:02:28--> 00:03:07

It was whiter than the milk. So what made black then he said it turned black due to the sins of Benny Adam, the children of Adam. So every time somebody puts his hands on it, it's like besides, Allah forgives his sins, it turns the color of the obvious or the surface of the Blackstone, it turned it into black and darker and darker. Basically brothers and sisters, what appears to us from this black stone in its corner is a surface that contains small segments, small stones,

00:03:08--> 00:03:25

approximately 15 small stones, sometimes a size of a date fruit, but they were all put together and cemented in a paste made of amber musk in wax. And that's why the color is kind of reddish black.

00:03:26--> 00:03:33

The height of the Blackstone from the floor in the corner is approximately one and a half meter.

00:03:34--> 00:04:29

The length of the Blackstone itself is two and a half feet while the width is one and half foot. So this is with regards to the place of the Blackstone and its position in the cab. The Blackstone departed the cab of for a while there have been several attempts sometimes to break it sometimes to steal it. These terms are done by non Muslims, and even sometimes some of the deviant sects such as what the Koran muta did, or kuramathi is about any sect. They claim to be Muslims. They claim to be amongst the Shia, and they claim to love Al Bayt, while what they did was on the contrary to all of that, they attacked Mecca. While people were performing Hajj, they attacked Mecca on the day of

00:04:29--> 00:04:55

authorea On the eighth day, that was on the year 317 After the migration of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and they killed many pilgrims. And the leader who was the king of Bahrain back then destroyed big parts of the Kaaba tore its cloth and broke the door and stole it and he was looking for a rock ngulia Nanny because of its preciousness.

00:04:57--> 00:05:00

But the custodians of the cab, many

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

used to hide it. So what was apparent to him is a Blackstone. So he broke it. And he removed it from the cab and you stole it and you took it with them to Al Aqsa or cliff

00:05:12--> 00:05:22

in the peninsula. And as a matter of fact, they kept it there for 22 years. The Kaaba did not have the Blackstone in its Blackstone corner.

00:05:23--> 00:05:54

And not only that, they built a house there and they put the Blackstone there, and they order the people have agreed to perform hajj on the following year 318 The ban people from going to make and they said you gotta perform Hajj here, and Copperleaf but when people refuse that they started killing many of them, they killed among the pilgrims, and those who are on the way for Hajj, approximately 30,000 Muslims, May Allah curse them.

00:05:55--> 00:06:42

Then 22 years later, the Blackstone was the return on the year 339. And it is ever since it in there, every time there have been some attempts to break a piece of it or to remove it Alhamdulillah that was hindered, and it was protected. The black stone. As I said it is the most precious stone on Earth. That's why a lot of people have entrusted it amongst the enemies in Islam to remove it from the Kaaba. Does it mean that we perceive it as a sacred stone? Do we as believers believe that this stone has special access to fulfill our needs? Or to do any benefit or to prevent any harm from befall in us? Absolutely not.

00:06:43--> 00:07:29

Rasool allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did indeed, case and patch that black stone that He had have been many Hadith narrated in this regard. And we will call upon you some insha Allah in a few minutes. But also, we're not honorable Hatha Bharati, Allah who was performing tawaf and he came to kiss the Blackstone, and he put his lips on it, that is called is the enamel harder is to touch it, or to put your hand on it, or toxicity honey is the Lamb literally means to receive. So when you read this word, it means to kiss it or to touch it, whether we will bear hand or through another tool, such as the Prophet sallallahu Sallam once was performing power on the back of his candle. And

00:07:29--> 00:08:01

every time he would come across the Blackstone, he would touch it with a mission or with a staff in his hand, and he would kiss. So the Sunnah is that whenever you touch the whenever you come across the Blackstone, in your power of in the beginning of your tawaf, to touch it with your hand with your right hand, and you say, Bismillah, Allahu Akbar. Or, if you can, then through anything else, maybe if you have something in your hand, a stick or a cane or stuff, you can do that, you can still get it.

00:08:02--> 00:08:40

But if you don't have access to it, then it will be sufficient to face it to your body, and point only with the right hand and you say, Bismillah, Allahu Akbar. Mistakenly you see a lot of people put in both hands up like warm in their hands before fine, this is not right, will you the right hand. And if you point without touching it, then you don't kiss your hand. This is the meaning of following the traditions of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So what did Omar Hapa Allah be pleased with him said in this regard, he said, as he was kissing the black stone by Allah, I know for certain that you're just a stone.

00:08:42--> 00:09:31

You do not benefit? No, do you protect against any harm? So he acknowledged the fact that we as Muslims believe that it is a stone. And he reminded the believers after the death of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam that we will never we kiss the stone, we cast it in order to appreciate it because it is a stone that came down from heaven. It doesn't have anything like it was similar to on earth. It is very precious, but it is not an object to benefit or to protect against any harm. It is exactly brothers and sisters, like when you kiss any of your children, or do you kiss your spouse, out of love, of compassion or out of respect, it does not mean at all that you worship, those whom

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

you kiss, rather reflects how much you love them, how much you revere and respect them. It doesn't mean that you bow down to them in worship. That is the same meaning of kissing the Blackstone or touching the Blackstone, and we must clarify that to those who are going to perform Hajj or Umrah and non Muslims because upon seeing that they think that as a matter of fact, some Muslims may think that there is you know, for touching the Blackstone

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

You will go straight to heaven. What the Prophet sallallahu sallam said in this regard, number one in the seven Hadith which was narrated by Anna Sydney Malika said Alhaji Raul Aswad mean Hey geratol Jana. The Blackstone is one of the stones of paradise. And secondly, he said, the Blackstone came down from heaven and it used to be whiter than the milk. And it turned out due to the sins of Benny Adam, the children of Adam hadith is narrated by Abdullah Abdullah bass and collected by Imam Tirmidhi. And it is a sound Hadith.

00:10:34--> 00:11:22

In a third Hadith or Sol Allah is Allah Allahu Allah cinema said in the Ragna will mahkamah your quote at anemia coetail JANA Thomas Allahu Taala Nora Houma. Well, I will unmute Miss Nora Houma la Alba at Mr. Boehner Michelle key on melody. Indeed, these two stones that black stone and the stone of Mocambo Ibrahim are two precious stones that came down from heaven. Allah Almighty put out the light and if Allah Almighty didn't do so, they would have let what is between the East and the West. It would be brighter than the sun. So most wholeheartedly as what we're rock ngulia Many your hotel annual hotwire have pop

00:11:23--> 00:12:09

touching the Blackstone in it's gone, and also a rock mulia many the Prophet sallallahu sallam said in the sound Hadith, which is collected by Imam Ahmed in his most net and narrated by Abdullah abnormal remit sense. remit says due to the compliance with the traditions of Prophet Muhammad and the guidance of Allah Almighty in this regard, but any stone including the Blackstone or arugula many does not benefit. No does it protect against any harm? Why RocknRolla Manny and the Blackstone, the Blackstone because it's a stone that came from heaven. What about a rock Malia Manny, these two corners brothers and sisters to the Father. Direction of in the south direction of the cab

00:12:11--> 00:12:58

are known as a rock nine Elia man Yang, because the point towards south towards Yemen. And these are the only two pillars of the Kaaba, which are built on the original foundations of Ibrahim Ali salah. You all know the story as we discussed in earlier episodes, that the Kaaba when it was reconstructed. Before the prophet hood, when the Prophet salallahu Salam was 35 years old, they ran out of Halal fund, and that's why they built it short and there is what is known as l hedge. So, a rock Nordea money and the Blackstone corner are the only two corners which are built on the original foundations of the cap. In the case of a rock ngulia money, it is also recommended to touch it with

00:12:58--> 00:13:11

your right hand without kissing the hand or a rock and in case that you will not able to reach there then it is not permissible even to point with your right hand. You just skip it without pointing

00:13:12--> 00:13:55

it brothers and sisters in case that it is very crowded in front of the Blackstone corner or RocknRolla many then it is recommended to pass by for the Blackstone corner you point with the right hand you say Bismillah Allahu Akbar from distance without trying to push people or shove them. Rasool Allah is Allah Allah Allah sallam said to Omar Abu hottub may Allah be pleased with him or Amma you are a powerful man. So if you find a room to see it on, in order to touch or kiss the Blackstone, but if you can, then it will be sufficient to point from far away, not to hurt people. Last Hadith in this episode, that rasool Allah is Allah Allah Allah is lmsc in the sound Hadith
