Welcome to live in a castle seminar. Haman hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Karim. While he was talking he was Selim Seaman cathedra.
So, once you finish your thought off, what's the Sunnah once you finish your thought off the sin of the prophets lie Selim was to take a break and to drink zum zum. Now, before you had to actually go to zum zum now you've got some some all over the place. So just to fulfill that suddenly you just take from those coolers inshallah, tada, you drink from that zum zum. And you continue on your way to the Saturday. Now you can take as long of a break as you want between the tail off and the sorry, if you want to take you know, 20 minutes, 30 minutes, whatever it may be, because you're exhausted, you're tired, that's fine inshallah you can take a break, you can sit down
and relax as much as you can before the Saturday
when you do the salary. When it comes to the bow off, you know, the second and third floor and obviously the way the house has been is has been built. Now we don't have that that ramp there anymore.
But the further you go away, the longer it is the Saturday It doesn't matter what floor you're on, they're all the exact same distance and a lot of people just don't make the effort to go up. Always go up to the second or third floor to do your sorry, it's so much easier, no matter what time of the year it is. Always try to go up in Charlotte's attitude to the to the second or third floor. First you will proceed to the signs that say a sofa, you'll head towards mount sofa
once you get to a sofa to the area of a sofa, you need to recite in the sofa when model water minchah illa the verse from certain Baccarat in the sofa will model water minchah illa you will then say above that will be my brother in law who he that I start with what Allah started. And it says here climb a sofa, there is nothing to climb. Okay, it's it's just the area of a softball. So you'll see where the area is you just follow the signs. A sofa, you know, is used to be a large Hill. But because of the amount of people that have walked it, it's eroded now, so it's just a little tiny area but the but it's, it's, you know, it's clearly marked. But you'll go to the area of a sofa, you
face towards the camera, you would raise your hands like you do in your app. So you raise your hands facing the Capitol like you do and you're not like You're so awesome. People will be doing this. Some people will be doing this. you'll raise your hands like your face the cab and you would recite the following words the profit slicer I'm used to c'est la ilaha illallah wa Hu luxury Kela Nicola hemd wahoo Anna cliche in de la ilaha illAllah. Whydah and just a word when also our other one has a much wider so the prophets lie some would say this drought three times. Now listen carefully. The Sunnah is to say this de la ilaha illallah wa de la sharika until the end of the drought then to
make your own surah
then to recite the dirt again, then to make your own deer and then to recite that there again. What that means is you're going to recite this to a total of three times and you will make your own in between. Okay, so you start off now you're not alone the hula cerignola until the end you keep your hands raised you're still facing the camera and then you make your own
recite the dirt again make your own recite to do a third time and you will not make your after the third time. So you're gonna say this a total of three times while standing at Safa and then in between you will make your own draft twice so you'll have a period of making your own draft twice and then you continue on to do sorry, okay so you're going to do a total of seven you know seven circuits inshallah tada and say, every time you get to suffer and model so you start off at suffer, you walk to model, when you get to model, you will start from La ilaha illAllah and do the exact same thing. So you won't read in the software model what some insha Allah, you won't read Abdel
Bhima but Allah hovi you will read you'll start off from La Ilaha Illa de la sharika you'll make your own draft you'll say la ilaha wahoo nursery Kala until the end of the draft, make your own draft and then say that a third time so you'll do this every time you get to a sofa or a model one facing the cabin shall let's make sure that you that you make the full circle on both sides. When you get between the two green markers, particularly for the brothers, this is a time to rush but again, not
to harm anybody not to run, but simply to pick up your pace and Charlottetown as you're doing Saturday, you'll see the green lights to indicate that this is the where the prophets I seldom used to use to pick up his pace. One very important thing and you'll thank me for this, if you remember this, you do seven times total insanity, not 14. It's not seven times back and forth. It's 1234567. There are some people that I know that have done. And by the way, sorry, is long. All right, it's painful and it's long. Okay, especially in the time of hedge, there are some people that actually do 14. All right, don't do that to yourself, don't torture yourself, you're not going to get more rigid
for that just seven times total inshallah time. Now it's time for you to exit your home. So you're finishing up your omura.
And, you know, you're going to go back to normal until the eighth of the hedge. So you'll have your hair trimmed for brothers in particular, you'll have your hair trimmed, but don't shave all the way at that point. Why because you want to leave some hair for the second time around to shave all the way for the second time around. So you can cut it as low as you want to, right you could even go zero and then you could shave at the time of hygiene, whatever it may be. But the point is, is that you want to leave a little bit of hair inshallah to Allah to to you know, to be able to take for the second time you exit the home, you can have your own clippers, you can do it in asiya or you can do
it in the hotel wherever you're staying. It's fine for you to do that as well inshallah tada or for people to do it for each other inshallah.
Getting out of hell, all right.
It's very unsanitary to use the street, the street guys are the people right? When you finish from Ottawa, you're gonna see a group of people that are saving, so it's probably best for you to avoid that altogether. For sisters, basically, what you're going to do is you gather your hair and you take from just a small tip from the back in Charlottetown. So you would grab your hand you take just from a small tip you'd cut from the back. For brothers Don't you know, make sure that inshallah tada you take evenly from all of your your hair, so you can't, you know, sit there and shave from the sides of your head and then leave the top of your head and stuff like that, right? Don't try to get
all fancy with hairstyles, it's all going to go anyway, with the next when you exit a home for Hajj. Alright, so just make sure that you take evenly from your entire head inshallah.
At that point, everything's headed for you, you're out of hell, until the eighth of the hedge. So once you finish aamra you get out of your comfort camera, you're done until the eighth, okay?
One of the big mistakes that people make is they think that it's enough to keep doing or at that point. So I'm gonna keep on going out to tender in do my intention for Amara again, redo my farm, come back and do Amara and so on so forth, people will exhaust themselves and this is not the Sunnah of the Prophet slice Allah. Okay, so just do one Ramadan in sha Allah to Allah, if you have an oath to do Ramadan for someone else, whatever it may be, and you want to do one more or something like that, that's fine, but don't sit there and try to do multiple cameras. At that point, it's never been done by the prophets lie Selim. Or by the companions, use the extra time in Mecca to rest.
People do not get this concept you get excited, you're in Mecca. I've got a few days until the Hajj day start. Most people wear themselves out before hedge actually starts and it's a huge mistake.
So rest, you've got a day or two rest. Don't exhaust yourself. Don't try to fight traffic and even make it to the hot on the first thing and as easy Honestly, I don't recommend people to fight and try to get to the bottom for those last, that last day or two, it's too harsh, you're likely to wear yourself out. So that's the time to rest to get yourself mentally and spiritually prepared inshallah tada for the days of hedge themselves. Okay, so the eighth day of the hedger comes
at that point, you're going to repeat all of the suddenness that you did for how long and Ramadan and you declare your intention for Hajj from where you are. So you don't have to go out anywhere. It's from where you are. At that point, if you were doing too much, or you will say labovick Allahumma headjam ob Hajin the bacolod Mahajan, or Allah make Allahumma hajra.
Now ideally, you reach Minar on the eighth day, all right, what we do in our group is we actually go out in the middle of the night on the seventh so that we can get some so that we can beat the traffic going to minute so ideally, you want to make it two minute it's sooner to do minute on the eighth day. This is called The Omen shuttle. Yeah, it was the day that they
have their camels rest up that they get themselves ready for the process of Hajj. So ideally you want to get there on the eighth day Don't panic if you get there late on the eighth if you get there super late on the eighth it's okay inshallah to Allah too soon
you know and you don't have to get there at any particular time on the eighth day in order to achieve that soon inshallah tada when you reach Mina on the eighth day, you're going to pray all of your prayers shortens but not joined. The sending us to pray. But not Gemma, okay? So you're going to pray the Horus to asanas as to Muslim as one and a half Irish testing you guys are the best three Irish as to everything is going to be you're going to pray shorten prayers, inshallah, tada, but in their times in their proper times, you're not going to join at that point. And really, the point is to rest the sin of the prophets lie some is to rest, to try to get you know, to try to get as much
rest as possible, because the most important day of your life is the next day which is out of.
So it's a blessing of a lot that was the beginning of hedge series, because alpha is the most important, broken, the most important pillar of hedge. And the only thing you're going to do before that is rest, get yourself ready. We have in our tent, we have the hedge convention. So we try to get all the machines around. And we do like a nice, you know, a nice reminder and try to, you know, revitalize everyone get everyone ready for the big day of alpha, but it's really just to get in those tents and to rest and to spiritually and mentally prepare yourself. And to get yourself ready. We tend to take off from out of a very, very, very, from minute to get out of a very early to beat
the traffic as well. Just an important note at that point. Bathrooms are going to be awful for the rest of Hajj. Awful. Okay, long lines,
heavy usage on the same bathrooms and so on, so forth. So you probably don't want to eat foods that are going to make you have to use the restroom. All right.
You know, take something to hold your stomach if you want. Don't take a laxative by accident, it happens to some people where they, you know, because you go to a pharmacy over there, whatever it is, and they just write you something or they throw you something your way and instead of giving you something that's supposed to hold you they give you something that makes you go
especially if they're angry with the hijabs for some reason, all right, but you don't want to eat foods that are going to make you go you want to keep that in mind inshallah tada also memorize your tent number your location in minute, people get lost in hajj and it's a it's a disaster, minute all looks the same. So if you want to drop a pin, you know if you know how to do that, drop a pin. If you don't know what that means. And don't worry about insha Allah just memorize your number. But drop a pin if you can know where you are in manansala just in case you get lost at some point so you can make it back to your tent. Now you're on the ninth day of the week. This is the most important
hedge This is the day of autofill now we tend to do we actually leave Mina early early early like we pray fudge and we're out what does that mean we pray fudger and we're out what that means is we're packed up and ready to go we pray fudge it and you jump on the bus. Okay, why because you don't want to get stuck in traffic on the day of alpha we try to get to auto as early as possible and sleep and rest before
because out of a technically starts loading. Okay, so you get there you rest you know when you get to alpha a lot of people try to go to the masjid and artifacts of Muslim namita it's not a good idea leave it alone gets your tent rest as much as you can. So that when the time of our comes in inshallah tada you are ready to go.
This is the only day of the year
that the profit slice and then prioritize your ad to salon.
What does that mean? the sin of the profit slice is to pray the horror and awesome as soon as the horror comes in combined and shortened and then to spend the rest of the time making your own until mclubbe.
All right. Why because this is the one day the profit slice and prioritize your ad to salaat itself. So as soon as the order comes in, there is going to be a small hope but there is the whole and also pray together combined and shortened. And then a person is supposed to engage themselves and the entire day. Do not mess this date up. As it sounds simple. You know it's Pamela but but a few years ago, and I'm sorry if you're one of those people that's watching that or you're here but I had to yell at my group because I because they were eating ice cream and hanging out in the tent like around the time on the day of alpha. That's literally the most important block of hours in your
entire life. You are closer to
Look at that moment than any other time in your life. So spend the entire time in there. If you run out of your eyes, make generic drugs make the liquid that's taught by the prophet slice Allah. But the point is, is that just spend the entire time in Scala one of the most beautiful descriptions on cinema all the time. She said that the prophets lie Selim his hands went up the hook, he prayed, his hands did not come down once until mother
and she said, we could see the armpits of the Prophet slice them from where he was raising his hands. There is only one point that happened, which was that the prophets lie so that some of the Sahaba didn't know whether it was simply the fact that out of a while they're there or not. Because as soon as the first out of a few nodded out of them, so they didn't know if they were supposed to be fasting or not. But the the prophets lie Selim, he literally was in his spot, making your and he wasn't moving. So finally, she went to him and she told the prophets lie Selim that I think they're waiting to see if you're gonna drink or eat or not. So the prophets lie Selim, he took, he took a
cup of milk, he raised it up, we'll see how the saw he said, his hands raised, he drank from it, so they all drink and then he went back to
does the only interruption on the day of the profits license. Right, just to show them that they shouldn't be fasting. So it's not saying that too fast. While you're there, it shouldn't if you're not there, okay. So don't waste a single moment of the day of alpha. Don't let some guide come and take you to a special place, stay to your tent, all of it is
what I say stay to your tents, I don't mean inside your tent go around. But don't think that if I go to this mountain, or if I go here, it's going to be more about the profit slice I'm set all of our offers out of the entire plane is out of Okay, so just where you are in shot, let's listen carefully to the ultimate.
Do your own analysis. And then the prophets lie Selim said, the best thing that I and the prophets have said on the eve of is La ilaha illallah wa the hula shriek Allah, the whole milk gulaal hunt or who Allah cliche. He said, that's the best form of remembrance the best form of Vicodin that can be made on the day of out of what that means is if you forget, you know, if you find if you have like a moment, where you have some time you're walking, you know, you're walking to the restroom, whatever it may be, you're walking to get some water. Or if you you know, you're trying to think of what you want to make do out for next, constantly use those words and Chatelet those transition points to
keep yourself busy with Vicki throughout the day of alpha, you don't have to go and look for congregational there are a lot doesn't need you to sound nice or to rhyme or to make your art in Arabic focus on making your personal dress in your own language inshallah tada as you as you do as you go through alpha. And then once the sun sets.
At that point, the day of alpha is officially concluded. Now you can stay in alpha after that, but the day of alpha is done. The Sunnah of the Prophet size is to pray Muslim inertia combined and shortened in was daddy.
Okay, so you don't pray an offer. Once Muslim comes in, you'll wait until you make it to was Delhi
was very first quite close to all of us not far away. But the prophets I sent him would make his way to Mr. leafa. And he would rush them was very fun.
And was very festive. Pamela is just
it's unbelievable. It's a site like no site that you'll ever see. It's literally a site of the Day of Judgment. It's unbelievable. It's just people packed. No accommodations on an empty plane to Panama. And it's something else it's something to experience and it's quite it's something to see. It's horrifying to some people
because there is nothing no accommodation. So Pamela it's literally like arriving It feels like you're arriving at the Day of Judgment. Right? So you get there. People will have their spots if you're able to find the spot. So a lot of times be prepared to not sleep on them. Honestly some people don't even get to sleep on the night and I know I've been to Hajj multiple times annually. I can't think of a time that I slept in was that even that's just me that I'm a light sleeper. Alright but it's very difficult to find a spot literally you just be crushed in their feet on top of you feet on your right feet on your left feet on your feet raises feet everywhere okay?
But it's it's it's a tough situation. The Sunnah of the prophet Sunnah is to is to leave from was dead. Sometime after the sunsets when you reach was dead if you face the Qibla the vicar is to say Allah
About a la had La la la la, la, la, la, la, he would pre Magnum inertia combined and join. The sooner interestingly enough on that night is to not do coleambally.
Okay, the Prophet slicin would would pray witted, and he would sleep. Why, because the next day is a very busy day.
The next day is a very busy day. So the profit slice and then prioritize the rest as well.
At that point, a lot of people like to collect stones, it's convenient to collect stones, it's not particularly virtuous to collect stones and was ready for it just makes sense. Because in minute, it's hard to collect stones. So if a person wants to go ahead and take their empty water bottles or their pouches, whatever and they collect their stones at that point, inshallah tada for the gemilut, then you could collect, at least at small size, pebbles and their rocks everywhere in Shell. And that can be done in minute as well. It's just not as easy as it is, and was pretty fun. So remember, everyone sleeps on the ground outside, no matter what package you're in, that's under $17,000,
you're gonna sleep on the ground, you're not gonna have any accommodations, that's where the small yoga mat comes in handy. The next day, the 10th day of the hedger is the date of receipt, it's the day of the sacrifice. So you will pray for it at the very beginning of its time. So as soon as the prefetch at the very beginning of its time, it's permissible for women for the elderly, for, for the sick, to leave before fudge on that night, and to go towards the bottom and to and to do their tail off of the father to do their tail off. And it's actually permissible for, for, for for, for people with those with exceptions and things of that sort.
But it's not good for the entire group to do them. Okay, so those that need to leave the firefighters to beat the crowds can do that. But for the most part, stick with the group, inshallah Tyler and if the group decides if the group that you're in, decides to do that all together, then follow the group. But generally speaking, at least in our group, we don't do that we wait until the budget comes in, to fulfill that sin and we make away for those that need to go early to go in Charlottetown. But otherwise, the sooner is to wait until budget, then you departmental. Now here's the depart for a minute, here's the thing about the day of variance.
The things that you need to do don't need to be done in any particular order. All right, so here's what you need to do on the day of eight. All right, you need to stone jamara tilaka. There are three pillars, three jamaats.
All right, you need to stone, the last one, Jamila to the October on that day. Okay,
you're going to need to trim your hair, cut your hair, or actually at that point, shave, right, you can shave or trim, it's up to you. But shaving is the pseudonym, but you're going to need to exit out of your harem. At some point, you're going to need to do the sacrifice at some point. Okay, and then you have the toe off the main toe off. And that can be done at any points over the next few days. So it doesn't have to be done on the 10th itself, it can be done on the 11th it can be done on the 12th can be done on the 13th. All right. But on that day in particular, I usually don't recommend people to do to off on the day of read. It's really really really harsh, really difficult.
Most people try to do it on the 10th day. Really what you want to get done is you want to get done. You have to get them jumbo to cover the stoning of the of the last pillar.
And you want to get done the sacrifice, the sacrifice will be done by whoever has been appointed to sacrifice. If you have contact with that person, you wait until they let you know. If you don't then you make a safe assumption at some point during the day, whatever it is that they were going to do it at some time during the day. So basically what we're gonna do is we're gonna head towards Gemini till October, we head towards the pillar, we stone, we get the call and Chatelet out of that the sacrifice has been done, we exit out of our head long. Even if you have not done so off, you will partially exit out of your alarm. What that means is the only thing that's held on for you. So
you'll shave your shield trim, you'll do all that type of thing. The only thing that's hot off is intimacy between spouses at that point, you have partially exit out of the hub, you can go back to wearing your regular clothes, you can go back to using cologne perfume, you can go back to trimming, you know your nails, whatever it may be. All of that becomes hallowed. The only thing that's left for you is what
to do little off of hedge the main toe off that you have to do. I typically tell people that it is a very, you know, it's a good idea to wait until the 11th, the 12th whatever it may be, it's going to be crowded no matter what but to go out at those times is usually better.
Or for the elderly, for the sisters that need to have it done for the sick, whatever it is the night of most. Otherwise, it's going to be really, really, really crowded on the 10th day. So you'll depart for jumbo till October, you'll depart for a minute and you depart to Jamaica to Alcoa, it's a long, long, long walk, takes quite a bit of time. Everyone is going usually in the morning. So that's actually the stampede last year happened at that time. Okay, the stampede happened. And obviously, it happened for other circumstances. But that's a really rough time, everyone is proceeding towards jumbunna tilaka. On the morning of the 10th. When you go to Jonathan alcova, you
will throw seven stones, I tell people this and please remember this. Alright, so here are the jumbo rocks, the water bottles.
Okay? When you come in, here's what you're gonna see. You're going to see some people that for some reason want to stone the other two, just to get their early shots on shape on on the different shale thing.
And then as you're walking, you are the bottlecap as you're walking. Most people what they do is they go directly at the gemba like this. So there's this huge crowd of people that are stoning and it looks overwhelming. All you have to do and trust me and you're gonna you're gonna question question initially, because you're gonna wonder if it's really true. It's never failed me and never failed any of my groups. All you do is you walk around that crowd and come back this way.
You guys understand this, you're going to have the jumbo to your right, walk around. Don't go directly with the crowd, walk around the crowd, you can walk up to the jumbunna and you can stone there without the huge crowd. It's safer. It's easy inshallah Tada, please don't hit me with your stones. I get hit every single year at the demo dots by people that are thrown from far away. Right or that for some reason think I'm shaped on but you know, otherwise, again, just walk around inshallah tada as you get there. You simply would say Allahu Akbar as you throw
with each stone. Try not to stand in front of the gemba there is no need to make sure at that point, you know, to stand in front of this stone and move on and Chatelet to Allah the stoning can be done any time after sunrise on that day.
Now you exit your home and the only thing left once again is to offer the father the main tool off of Hajj in sha Allah to Allah.
And the Prophet slicin allowed for any sequence. As we said, any sequence of these events is fine. And ciabatta any sequence is fine. But that's usually the most logical one and the one that we're going to do. So that's the day of read what's left for you. Is that one too often? Okay.
What about women that are on their cycle, they can do everything but fall off everything but often Charlottetown again, now you have the 11th to the 13th of the hedger. By the way, we're getting to the end in Charlottetown, you have the 11th, to the 13th of the ledger. These are called a amateurishly. These are days of Vicodin, the days of remembrance of a lot. And these are days that are typically the soonest to spend them in minute.
The requirements for these days is to spend half of the night in minutes, at least half of the night in minutes. So if you have accommodations in Isaiah, or you have accommodations in Mecca and you you left, then you need to make sure that you spend half of the night in minute, what is half of the night, from a shuddering perspective from a technical perspective.
It's mcribs budget divided by two
Muslim is one the night starts. budget is when the night ends, half of that time needs to be spent in minutes. Okay, at least half of that time.
Every day you're going to stone three Gemma rocks. So you'll go to all three of them at that point.
And you will stone each one with seven stones. The timing of the stoning is after a lot of time. Now it does not end that Muslims so I want to make a very important clarification here. The time is not devoted to Muslim The time is after the hook. Okay, so if a person wanted to go later on, there are many narrations of companions that went later on after Salatin Muslim and things of that sort and shot let's add, that's fine inshallah. At late awesome after awesome, that's all fine as well. The worst time to go is after the hood, because that's when a lot of people go that's when the major traffic is going before the hole is really not something that we find the precedents for.
Unless obviously there's overcrowding and the authorities announced that they have to really space it out. But otherwise going later on inshallah todos is, is easy. It's not so not to go to Mecca during this time, right, so it's not so necessary.
Go and play in the Caribbean things of that sort as soon as to take the time of Vicodin, Charlotte's island to use that time wisely. If a person is sick, or a person has a difficulty getting to the gym a lot, and a lot of people pass out on the way to the gym a lot and just it's it's a really harsh walk, especially if you're coming from the North American camps. You're talking about an hour and 15 minutes, an hour and a half to get there. All right, with the crowd sometimes and it's hot, it's okay to appoint someone to throw on your behalf.
No issue whatsoever. So especially for those that are sick that are ill,
the elderly, a person would simply throw on their behalf and Charlotte's Island when they get there, they don't go 123. So it's not like 123 and then go back to the front 123 simply that person will throw 14 1414 instead of 777. So seven for themselves. Seven for that other person. Please, if you're sick, our brothers and sisters that are elderly, don't put yourself through that stress on that day, if it's going to be difficult for you. On those particular days, when it comes to the stoning, it's okay to appoint someone else, inshallah to Allah to do so.
Now, a loss penalty, it gives us an option,
you can leave minute on the 12th.
For mental agility domain, you can leave on the 12th or you can leave on the 13th. However, if you're going to leave on the 12th, you need to be out of minute by Muslim. You need to be out of minutes by Muslims. So you need to stone on the 12th before mclubbe and safely be out of minute by Muslim. It is not sinful for that if money it doesn't decrease from your reward, it's fine. And inshallah tada you know, honestly, it's a very good option for a person to take. It's what our group does, what most of the groups do is to actually do to agile to leave on the 12th inshallah to Allah, because Allah tells us to leave on the 12th or to leave on the 13th you can leave on the 12th or you
can leave mentor, for that matter, you could stay until the 13th if you stay until the 13th what do you need to do? You have to wait until vote and you have to stone
Okay, so if you leave on the 12th you have to leave before what time Muslim if you leave on the 13th you have to wait until what time and then you stone and then you leave our group inshallah to Allah will stone on the 12th and then we'll head ties Isla will walk down to Isaiah and Shaolin will stay as easy and will do to agile inshallah Tada. Now at that point, what's left for you is the waffle with that the farewell to off. Okay, the farewell bow off.
This can be done any time afterwards. And the intention can be combined with the life of a father if not returning to Mecca according to some narrations. Now I'm going to explain this inshallah. So often when there is a farewell throw off the scholars different over it, whether it's a worship or a sinner. So too often a father remember I know that's late right now. But the main toll off on the day of or eat or the throw off of Hajj which you have to do either on the 10th 11th 12th whatever it may be. That toe off is a token it's mandatory, it's a pillar of the hedge. So often where there is either a wajib or a pseudonym, the farewell cloth and basically what it is, is that the last thing a
person should do when they leave Mecca when they leave the home they leave the sacred precinct is thought
so too often where there is done towards the end of your trip.
Okay, and after cloth and wood there you cannot buy you cannot sell you shouldn't you should not engage in things you know that you know buying and selling and things of that sort except for your food and your essentials and things of that sort but you can't go shopping after that. That should be towards the end of your trip. It's not reasonable to go do too often with that and go to the airport that's very difficult for people usually it's going to be like within the last day within the last 24 hours of your trip in Charlotte to it you go and you do your thrill often without now what happens
and this is what I mentioned about combining the intention combining the intention I want you to understand this combining the intention simply means delaying your philosophy father until the end of your trip to where it takes the place of philosophy there anyway that's something that's permissible and that was you know, Mr. Mallika, himolla and also within the humbly school that something that was allowed in that was done and basically what that meant is it serves the purpose of falafel were there at the moment No, we explained it this way. Okay. he likened falafel were there to the to darcars that you pray when you come into the masjid. If you come into the masjid and
there's a fault what do you do? Do you pray the two records of Tahitian Muslim or do you join the felt enjoying the fault because the point is is that when you come into
Most of you shouldn't sit without praying your two cards. All right. So that's what the scholars that said that you can delay the philosophy father until the end. And it could serve as your till often when they likened it to to hate it and mustard to the entering into the masjid. You can do your thought. So often the Father, for example, if you're leaving on the, you know, the morning of the 15th of the hedger, you would do it on the, you know, the 13th, or the 14th. And then that would serve in place of it. However, again, you know, I would just, I would recommend people to not do that unless, you know, it's really, really difficult for them, they're really struggling, they're
having a hard time. You want to you want to do as much as you can have the hedging shot, let's say you don't get this opportunity much. So if you can do too often, if all the Anto offers were there, that's the best way to go. That's the way we should do it and shout Lazzara unless there's some dire circumstances or a person has a very unique situation, because some people might have an early trip out, or whatever it may be.
So this should be the last thing that you do in Mecca. There is no sorry, for too often we're there. Okay?
And what about voluntary tow offs?
I tell people this and I really do mean it. That's not the time to do voluntary force. People are struggling to get their tail off. And he followed on to get there too often what they're done. That's not the time to cause a bunch of traffic and cause hardship by doing voluntary co ops in Charlotte, or you can do other things. Now, if you missed a lot, and we're there, let's say that you were late. Or let's say that you had to get to the airport. It just didn't work out. Something happened so often, when that was missed, what do you have to do?
If you if you're following the opinion of the majority, that's a logic, then you'll give a sacrifice, you'll do a video. Okay?
If a sister, you know, is on her cycle, and she misses so often would she have to do any type of sacrifice or makeup or anything of that sort? No. Okay, there's going to be no makeup for it whatsoever.
Some of the women's issues and Charlotte's I just put out here, because it's very, very important. Shout lots out a lot of times. And I feel bad because the sisters always have a lot of questions and a lot of confusions and things of that sort.
There are a few things that are mentioned here in sha Allah.
One of them is that again, the only thing that a woman is prohibited from doing on her cycle is throw off.
Now, let's say let's say that the time of hedge ended, and a woman has not done her too often the fall. What does she do?
What does she do at that point?
At that point, okay, she would do hurt though often he falda even though she's on her cycle. Why because not enough a person is delaying. Now let's say that she's staying for 21 days or whatever it may be and she can wait so you can delay your velocity follow to the 18th and 19th then you should do it that you should do it when you achieve to her when you achieve your purity. But if you're in a situation where you've got a flight on the 15th and you have not reached that state of purity yet, then you will do your tail off of the Father anyway. Okay, why because then you are like a person who has to do Salah but can't maintain that particular condition of Toyota during Soleil like they
have they have something that stops them from having the loop throughout their prayer. You still have to do your the walk out and Charlotte's are there's no sin on you whatsoever and it will completely fulfill the obligation. Okay, so commandment Samia Rahim Allah tala wrote in quite some, some detail on this. And there were other scholars that mentioned the same. And it's the only thing that makes sense. Because if a person left, I'm just letting you guys know, the person left from hedge. And they did not do their too often if you are in a state of a harem, until you come back to Mecca, and you do too often you follow. That means you can be in a home for a year. That means your
husband can't touch you for a year, which that might, you know, that might be what you're trying to achieve, but it's probably not going to do a good you know, it's probably not going to be good for the household. All right. But a sister could do her throw off in the fall, but in that case, just the mandatory throw off inshallah, tada, a lot of times you have people that take, you know, some sort of pills to delay their cycle or to try to play with it and usually it doesn't work. Okay, usually it doesn't work.
Because, you know, obviously just the nature of the entire, the entire Hajj period and things of that sort. So, you know, inshallah, tada while you're there, you can ask those types of questions and you can you can see those things, taking those pills. If you've, if you've, you know, sought medical advice, they're permissible, it's okay in sha Allah to Allah. In fact, there are early narrations of some of the Sahabi acts and some of the Tabby are trying to you know, to look for remedies so that they could shift their cycle around for the purpose of Hajj, but inshallah Tada. If a
person finds themselves in any situation there is a way around it. So even if they have to do too often the Father, and the time comes to leave them they can do they're too often the father, they don't have to do too often. They don't do any other time off. They only do the mandatory throw off. That has to be done before you leave.
Just quickly, should I do Medina just two quick things about Medina. There's really nothing to do and nothing really talking about there. So inshallah I'll just I'll just open it up to questions. Now.
By the way, this whole guide is available on Hajj package usa.com. It's on Hillel Hodges website.
So you can actually get the you can get this hub step by step and show what's on you can refer to it throughout the hedge period and show. So questions. I'll open up to questions. Yeah.
When you're not as easy, or you're still a traveler, so you're doing puzzles.
When you go to home, you're following the map.
But when you pray on your own, you're doing puzzles, or you're shortening the prayer.
Yes, yes. So the day of raid, you'll do General tilaka. The other days, you will do all three.
We'll all be doing it together. But when you're in the crowds, you can't really do it. Like, for example, there's no way for everyone to do a walk together, you'll be disintegrated in the first circuit. You know, so there's no way to do throw off together. And a lot of people, you know, make a lot of mistakes, especially in throw off including the first the first off because they were counting on everyone being together, and there's no way to do throw off altogether. All right. Now, you know, I'm pretty tall. And we'll see you can kind of scout me out sometimes. But even you know, again, there's no way for all of us to do it together. But we try to do is you know, it's good for
small groups to do a lot together. So you know, groups of 510 15 Max, actually, beyond 10 doesn't work.
Reference areas to look at.
Powers monstrosity, excuse
me, I was trying to
start off with
Any sisters? Yeah.
So throw on the day, a very general tilaka. Then the 11th and the 12th. We'll do the three jemalloc. And our group will do charges. So we'll leave on the 12th for a minute, we'll go back to Isaiah
80. If you're doing 80, if you're doing the the 11th, the 12th and the 13th. If you're doing to Arthur.
It's 21 plus 21 plus 21 plus seven.
Yeah, so if you're doing just two days, you're doing 721 and 21. So
I was saying at because you know, just to cover for people that are around and some people lose their stones, forget their stones, you know what I do? I'm gonna be very honest with you guys on the last day. A lot of people just leave their stones on the, on the ramp on the rail, because they, you know, they they brought too many stones. So I'd literally just walk up to them, I just pick the stones,
you know, but it's good to be able to cover for others, but you're only going to need a total of, you know, you're going to need seven on the first day, then you're gonna need 21 and 21.
But if you have the exact number, then you're probably gonna plus you're gonna get confused while you're throwing.
So, a lot of times you'll end up throwing like 910 you know, instead of seven. Yeah.
Very good. So, for the sisters in my group, I always do a session.
You know, just to go through each and every single individual what if what if, because they're a little
Out of what ifs will with these things right
if a woman enters into ombre and she's on her cycle and she came in with the intention of to mentor so she got in she did her Saturday she and she did not do her throw off but then the days of hedge Kane she will change her intention from tomato to Quran
and she will not have to make up any throw off for Allah. Okay, so her tail off of Hajj will be will suffice for all for everything before it as well so then she'll change from tomato etc
so she goes in with the intention of Ramadan doesn't work out it's okay to move from that point
so the fall the group so the question is that if a person if a person is with the group and the group for example leaves after half the night in was Delica Do I go with the group or do I stay behind you have to go with the group and that's okay because some of us will have accompanied us on the other hand when others they accompany the women and they accompany the elderly on that night
that's fine sound Lazzara it's an opinion it exists and a lot email dude.
other guy stay with your group inshallah?
yes, going to miss Delica is a necessity
so what the sick would do is they've literally just touched down and was ready for and they leave after the half of the night passes.
Now you change the intention while you're there so you realize that it's not going to be possible to do to do that off of the ombre it's the seventh of the hedger you know, it's just too late. So then you'll change this where you are from start to put on.
sleeping bags are fine.
You can I would recommend personally I recommend just for the sake of going light I recommend buying it up over there in Medina
from Binda wood
Now so there's just the alarm of Amara and the aroma of Hajj want to hit on perama want to head on for Hajj or want to head on for both in the situation?
Or for the sisters there is no add on anyway. Right? So for the sisters it's it's the state but you're not wearing anything special for for Perlmutter hunch.
So you're what the often the father, you're still in the state of
meaning you're observing the prohibitions
that are mentioned.
You know, up until you finish once you finish so often if
you fully exit so too often where there is just when for your exit from Mecca, but you're out of Vietnam altogether. So again, when you finish the sacrifice the stoning of the jumbo Tanaka and you've and you know, the trimming of the hair, the shaving for the brothers,
you've exited every aspect of the harem except intimacy between the spouses is still not allowed until you do the law for the father and then it's a full exit from
so when it comes to the sandals and the slippers and what's allowed on the sandals and the slippers, the different men that have have different you know, requirements and things of that sort, the main thing is to definitely leave the heels exposed so it's in resemble a shoe
closed from the front altogether. It's I mean, I wouldn't if you're in my group, I would tell you not to do that but it's not going it's not a violation but it's in the doubtful area. So it's better to leave to have something that's that's some some opening to it. And again, not to have something that can appeal to it resembles a shoe
yeah, that can be as long of a break as you want between so often sorry. There's absolutely no time time restriction that yes.
Now that wouldn't do anything, you would just would have killed the poor camel.
Yeah, but that's not practical. So the way that the Sahaba did it is that they'd wait. They'd wait until the woman could do it. Or the women altogether were able to do their to offer the father then they left but it doesn't work that way anymore. You've got flights. And trust me if you miss your flight and hedge it's what's that?
Yeah, you know, it's interesting, because so yes, technically, the way to deal with it is that the caravans would wait, but even back then, if the entire tribe the caravans ready to go, and you got one woman, then from you know, so there were a few situations, a few scenarios, either, you know, she will remain in a home, and she'll come back to do toe off when she can do that. And of course, they're around the area anyway. So they're not too far, where it's where it's hard for her to come back to Mecca. Or they'll wait until she's able to do it. But that's not practical, in our day and age. So that's why
absolutely. And that's why that's why those scholars have been saying we have no claim of showcasing others, they, they said that it's just like a person who has to do Salah, but they're not able to achieve all of the aspects of Torah purity for a lot of time. So law still has to be done. It's an obligation that has to be done at that time.
Will we all be traveling as a group, you'll be having groups,
but not so once we're there in Medina, from Medina, to Mecca, and so on, so forth, we'll all be together in Charlottesville, but no, not by.
So me personally, for example, I'm going to be flying separate from the group to get there, I have a different flight route. But otherwise, there are chunks of groups, right. So there are chunks of groups that are going to be flying together in Charlottetown. But once we're there, we'll all be together and chill.
So during the day of the 11th, and 12th the days of tissue, you don't have to be in Mina during the day, you have to spend half of the night in Mina, but it's in practice, I mean, the son does obviously spend the time to spend time there.
But let's say for example, what a lot of people will do.
So the way that for our place in Isaiah works is that you can actually stone and you can walk down to Isaiah so it's like 45 minutes walking down sort of like a downhill walk 45 minutes to an hour walking down to zero, whereas walking back is over an hour You know, so a lot of people will go down to zero after they stone and they'll still take a rest there they'll stay there for a few hours and then they'll make their way back to minute which is fine
You just need to spend half the night in jail
so you're going to need so from from a money perspective
getting so getting in and out of the system you're going to need to take cabs, there's there's no area for buses to get in and out of the home. It's It's impossible so what she'll probably do is you know you'll have a group of two three brothers and you'll go and you'll try and take a cab to get out every time you need to go to the bottom and stuff like that. I think just a couple of 100 you know a few $100 is good enough inshallah. Tada.
Yeah, they've got exchange currency exchange places, they're all over the place.
One thing about that and Charlotte's are just to keep in mind as well. Actually Earth man make sure you know that there's fees so the earth he has collected over there, the sacrifices collected over there and things of that sort. So that but yeah, so that's all cash.
Yeah, unless you arrange the sacrifice outside of the group, right. But for the sacrifice, if you're going to do with our guy that slaughters then it's going to be cash only over there and shelter so make sure you confirm whether it's not inshallah, about how much is due. Let me just answer these questions. last questions that are that were sent in.
If they weren't answered already, does it violate the rule to wear a face mask? No. I already said
So what about wearing disposable gloves? While using the restroom for a woman? That's fine
Can I cover a tattoo of an image that is prominent on my shoulder with a band aid or a band aids yes that's fine a band aid does not or a bandage does not fall into my feet it's not a garments or cloth so it's fine to patch up a tattoo or an image on days like autofill when you are not required to be within certain confines during given hours how feasible is it to get from various locations to Azizi from autofill there is no access the only time as easy as accessible is in on the days of Mina
How do I prepare my will okay these are these are will see your questions I'd recommend my will see a.com gelato can women change their clothes while they are in it head on
you can change as many times as you want to Hello Hello Mom is a state of being is not cloth for men even those two towels you can replace them as many times as you want
it can be many garments
for women who are touched inappropriately by strangers what should they do
what is a reaction that is not violating proper other someone touches you you can elbow you can punch you can do whatever you want to do. Just make sure that it's not It wasn't an accident it's like they didn't get pushed into you or something like that. But
I do recommend sisters to go you know with their husbands or something like that or in groups and things of that sort of just it's it's it's so crowded so panela this entire time, people upon people upon people.
But you can do whatever you want in Charlottesville to protect yourself, do protect yourself that's not part of the subject of hedge to let to let yourself be violated in that regard. Can you put insect insect repellent on your sleeping bag? Yes, that's fine. You can even put again unscented on yourself and out of a bomb you can put it all together.
When we go for when are we going as a group, we'll go with small groups and challah to do the tough part.
Will women be accompanied by their husbands? Yes, they should be are the men and women both allowed to apply scented or unscented sunscreen before this date of sunscreen is fine inshallah.
Please, so some some of you didn't get the socks part, the socks part or for when you do throw off. So for women, you can wear socks the entire time for men, outside of a home, you're gonna like for example, pull off any father, you'll be out of home already. Right. So because of the way the surfaces The only time that you're not going to be able to wear socks and fall off is going to be the falafel aroma. Because you'll be in a column when you when you do too often. Otherwise, the surface is very harsh on your feet, you're gonna have blisters and stuff like that. So it's good to have some thick socks just to protect your feet and Charlottetown.
Okay, is perfume permissible for women, after all, sort of before entering into how long? Using a sense, you know, body sense cleaning yourself? So for women, the the the ruling would apply that it shouldn't be something that that other people can smell around, right. So just cleaning yourself and things of that sort of gelatin is fine. Allow the item for any questions right now. I'll take those questions. Personally, I'll let earthman do the logistical logistical portion Charlottetown and then we'll go ahead and we'll conclude and then you guys can ask me on a personal level. And
so again, the guide is on the website, hedge package usa.com.
Okay, just gonna go over a few things. First, again, Zack, go ahead for joining our group.
inshallah, I'll be joining the group, my wife was returning this group this year for the sisters, if you want to get to know sister for over there,
she'll be able to help out.
In terms of, you know, the way we have our package set up over the years we've learned, it really helps us get things. It gives us a way to rebalance and kind of reset in Medina, you know, everyone's busy with their life and everything going on here. But when we get to the DNA gives us a few days before the you know the big pieces of hedge to start to disconnect from this world and you know, reconnect over there. So
when we're there we will have how it goes every day, as you can see on the itinerary. This is the preliminary itinerary. There might be some changes. We'll be we'll be sending notices every day on kind of what
