To this day hedge is actually a time where scholars from around the world get to meet each other that otherwise don't get to meet. It's a time where Muslims get to interact with all sorts of cultures that they otherwise have never heard of. And you can imagine at that time, right if you had not traveled the world, and most of the people that were coming from Medina at the time had not seen the rest of the world. Imagine what it was like to see the first expressions of Islam from Africa, from Yemen from a sham from all of these different places, and to interact with those people. Now one of the things about this particular hedge the hedge of the profit slice is that the majority of

00:00:42--> 00:00:49

those who we call Sahaba, who we call companions, today became companions only because they met the Prophet sallallahu alayhi, wasallam and hedge.

00:01:00--> 00:01:40

So when you go to the books of how do you find Bab Hagit in Abhi, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and it is one of the longest chapters and you will find one of the longest narrations about the Hajj. In fact, this long narration from jabil will be a lot of data and how that goes point by point and everything that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam did for the Hajj. But he starts off with this he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he stayed in Medina for a total of nine years. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam announced in the 10th year that he had intended to do the Hajj. And so people found out about that and they started to gather around Medina so excited to do Hajj

00:01:40--> 00:02:22

with the Prophet slice I'm imagine anywhere in the world that you were when you heard that also lustleigh Sam is going to do Hajj this year and that this is going to be the first hedge purely of Muslims. How would you react and what type of VIP package is that? Right? So what ends up happening is that you have 10s of 1000s of people that start to pitch tents on the outskirts of Medina, way before the hedge starts waiting for the profit slice of them to embark on this journey so that they too could be with him. So 10s of 1000s of people around and this was the time as we said, more people became Sahaba during this Hajj than any other event in Islam, up to 144,000 people would do

00:02:22--> 00:02:59

Hajj with the Prophet slice on them and that's all that you have to do to become a Sahabi is to see the prophets lie Selim as a believer, and so all of these people that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had never met, and there they are waiting to go with him. sallallahu wasallam now even during the prophets lifetime, this was called the farewell had had to adapt, because the Prophet sallallahu it was said I'm kept on indicating that this was perhaps going to be his final year. In this world. However, the people still held out hope that the Prophet slicin was going to be amongst them for a long time. So it also lost my son he appoints the famous companion abou Jana or the

00:02:59--> 00:03:38

alongside animal, the warrior to be the governor of Medina during his absence. And on the 25th of the lucara, which corresponds to February of the year 632. He makes his way out of Medina, accompanied by all of his wife sallallahu Sallam so all of my hearts and mumineen of the mothers of the believers went on this hedge with the profit slice alone. It was Saturday, the 25th of the declared and as we said, This is the fourth or almost all of the profits Isilon and all of his ominous were in the ricarda. He prayed the hood of Salalah why he was selling in his own measures in Meza net buoy. And then he goes out to the furthest meat plot, the furthest station where people

00:03:38--> 00:04:20

enter into a bomb and this is the main part of the labor. This is the part that are essentially his salon that Jesus peace be upon him will enter into her arm from when he comes back to do his Hajj or his Ramadan. So the prophets lie Selim, he gets to the halifa. And he does his household and he changes into his f ROM, and he says that a messenger came to me last night, and he told me to pray and this bless that valley of alactic. So he prayed to chi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then he dressed himself at his Salatu was Salam in two plain, white garments of cotton from Yemen For how long? And this is significant, by the way, that also lost my son's mom was indistinguishable from

00:04:20--> 00:04:58

everybody else. He was wearing absolutely nothing sallalahu it was something that would set him apart from everyone else as the leader of the people. The prophets lie Selim is on a camel just like everybody else. The prophets lie some is carrying his luggage just like everyone else. And the prophets lie some is wearing the same haraam as everyone else. Now something significant that takes place there is that a snap into maicel the Allahu taala and her she gives birth to the only child of herbal Beckett acidic or the Allahu taala and who in Islam as smart with the Allah and who was married to Jaffa will the Allahu anhu and then when Jaffa died, she married a bucket and then when I

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

go back to the day she married I

00:05:00--> 00:05:36

You will be allowed to how to handle and this child that she gave birth to at the me thoughts when the Prophet slice on them and the companions were about to go out because it was the only child of apobec in in Islam. He named this child Mohammed. So Mohammed even Rebecca is born. But guess what a smile of the Aloha still wants to go to Hajj literally the same day that she gives birth. She tells the Prophet sallallahu it was them that she gave birth, but she is in the fast and she still wants to go to Hajj. So she takes instructions from the Prophet slicin them with her post Natal bleeding, to cover herself and to still proceed with the prophets license. So what Pamela what a woman to go

00:05:36--> 00:06:19

out on that day, the day that she gives birth to Mohammed, the son of Abu Bechet, she makes her way on the Hajj with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam so the Prophet slicin them he prays is two records, and he mounts the famous camel alpa slot, which was the camel that the Prophet slice them use for his journeys between Mecca and Medina. It was his favorite camel, and he his Salatu was set up and jabber or the Allahu taala and he describes the scene of looking at the Prophet slice that I'm in Aveda when he is surrounded by people from all over the world. And he said Navara to Elon Musk, the boss Sorry, I looked at the furthest where my eyesight could reach benei a de mental

00:06:19--> 00:07:00

occupant romashin Well, I'm Yemeni Mr. Dalek Rani Sati mithila Dallek woman Kofi mytho Dallek, what are pseudo law he sallalahu it he was selling my bainer a hoodie now, where are they he NZ reported on well, who are you already for 10 Wheeler. He said that I looked out that day. And the furthest of my eyesight, I just saw seas of people think about that many people at that time. This wasn't a world where you had six 7 billion people, over 100,000 people. And I look to my right to my left in front of me behind me and there was either someone who is mashing who was walking or someone that was writing something. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was amongst us he wasn't Sinhala why he

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

was so distant from the people. He was writing amongst us, while he and zero Quran, Allah Akbar, and the Quran was descending upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, while he was writing amongst us Subhana Allah, so we're looking at him, and the Quran is coming upon him and they knew how the Prophet slicin looked when on would descend upon him. And he said, one I mean to be human shaking, I mean, be whatever the profit slice on did, we did the exact same thing. So we're looking at him throughout this entire journey and we're conveying to those that are not in the vicinity of the profits license to see him what he is doing a hell of veto heat. So the profit slice I'm starting to

00:07:39--> 00:08:21

check out with monotheism with the chance of tawheed lebap Allah, Allah beat la bakerella Shetty calcular beak in Alhambra, when near matter laka will milk la serie khaliq. So we started to chant just as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam chanted the entire time until we made our way to Mecca. So we arrived in Mecca on the fourth day of the hedger and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he camped out at night at the Valley of toilet and the scholars say that the Prophet slicin did not like to enter during the nighttime so he stopped with his companions there and they waited in the valley of toilet and then in the morning, the profit slice on woke up. He did listen once

00:08:21--> 00:09:01

again in Harlem, and the profit slice on enters into Mecca on Sunday morning, the fifth of the hedger and Jabba all the a lot of time and who describes portion by portion, him doing the pull off and as he did the toe off sallallahu wasallam he touched rock nearly Amani, the Yemeni corner of the Kava and he kissed the Blackstone sallallahu wasallam because these are the two foundations of Ibrahim It is said that Remember, the Kava used to be a rectangle but it was built now as a cube shape. The original foundations are on the side of the m&e corner as well as the Blackstone and that's why the Prophet slicin would touch the Yemeni corner and he would kiss the Blackstone

00:09:01--> 00:09:42

sallallahu wasallam and higit isma He is the original shelter that Ibrahim alayhis salaam constructed for her job and is married and he was set up so at that point the profit slice on them he does the bow off and when he finishes that the off sallallahu wasallam he goes to macom Ibrahim, the station of Ibrahim it Salah, and it used to be attached to the cabinet It was literally the place where Ibrahim Isom stood as this made it Islam handed him the bricks as he was building the Kava, the profit slice on recites with tequila woman mikami Ibrahima masala and take from the station of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, a place of prayer and he prays placing the station of Ibrahim

00:09:42--> 00:10:00

Alayhi Salaam, between him and the Kaaba and honoring his father Subhana Allah who built that house one day making your app for him hoping that this exact scene would happen you know Ibrahim it some never lived to see the scene but imagine Subhanallah this was the true real is

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

One of the the Brahim and Islam people coming from all over the world on the backs of every single animal speaking all types of languages all saying lebay Kala Humala, big chanting the chant of monotheism, and the Prophet slicin recited in these two guys, certain kaffee rune and certain class, the first surah is one in which all of the gods besides Allah are negated. The second Surah is of course, and if last bull who Allah I had the affirmation of Joe Hayden the affirmation of monotheism. Then he says that the prophets lie some drank Zamzam and he claimed to suffer the same mountain where he started his call sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he faced the Kava sallallahu

00:10:44--> 00:11:25

alayhi wa sallam and as he was looking out to the caribou from a suffer the profit slice on them recited in the suffer while moderate dementia it Illa that verily a Safa and then Marwan are from the signs of Allah subhanho wa Tada. And he said up that will be my bed Allah hubby. I start with what Allah subhanho wa Taala started, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he raises his hands like he's making they're looking towards the Kava. So imagine him standing on a slough at sallallahu wasallam looking towards the camera, raising his hands and do and he recites La ilaha illallah wa had the whole la sharika lahu mukalla Hemant who could be shaking Kadir so the famous

00:11:25--> 00:12:07

way of declaring the oneness of Allah and then he says La ilaha illa Allah who had and as the one Asada abda What hasn't been azova the same thing, the profit slice I'm set on the date of Fattah hammacher that there is no God but Allah alone, he fulfilled his promise. He aided His servants being the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and he alone destroyed the Confederates panna Horta, Allah, the Prophet seisen repeated this three times and he made between them. Now by the way, this is significant Why? Because this was the place where the prophets Elijah them stood up, and he called the people to La ilaha illa Allah, and no one responded to him except for his uncle, Abu

00:12:07--> 00:12:47

lahab. And his uncle Abu lahab cursed him on that day Subhan Allah and this was the context of the revelation of Tibet here the Abdullah have been watered where Allah subhanaw taala responded to Abu lahab on behalf of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam so imagine the Prophet slice I'm standing on a sofa for the first time and it was a large hill at the time, and he stands on top of it and the memories of the Prophet slice I'm looking out to his people, and his people staring at him blankly and rejecting his message and him feeling like a complete stranger amongst his own people. And now Allah subhanho wa Taala is surrounding him with over 100,000 believers in his message, as he's

00:12:47--> 00:13:26

standing on a sofa, looking at the cabinet without idols, and looking at his people, which are the believers from all over the world that worship Allah subhanho wa Taala without partners and reminding himself with this door and we acknowledge this, just as Allah subhanaw taala supported hudgell it has said I'm running between us suffer, well Mandala, Allah Subhana Allah Allah supported the Prophet slicin and when he was alone, on that day, standing upon a Safa and every time we go to suffer, and then Mandala we remember those moments with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, after the Prophet slicin finished the Prophet slicin and made his way to her June and this was the

00:13:26--> 00:14:05

same place he pitched this tent and fled to Mecca near where are these all the Allahu tada Anna is buried, and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam waited there until the days of Hajj where he made his wait a minute for the date of a terawatt where the camels would rest before he would make his way to alpha Salallahu it he was selling them and the profit slice on them at this point, by the way, he was performing the type of hedge which is known as pylon which is where you combine the same haraam of O'Mara and hedge and the Prophet sly. Some had advised those that were not with the same intention to break between their home of oma and their ROM of Hajj, which is Hajj tagamet Tour,

00:14:05--> 00:14:25

which is the most common way of doing the Hajj and the Prophet slicin. I mentioned that if he was to be able to do it again that he would do Hajj in tomato form. So he stayed in his ashram sallallahu wasallam until the days of Hajj, combining the Haram, Umrah and Hajj and then came the beautiful moments of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam at out of
