Everyone,

00:00:16--> 00:00:57

I want to welcome you all, once again to our Friday reflections and also, inshallah Tada. I want to start off by making your art by praying the last panel, except all of your deeds that are done in these 10 days that are lost, except the hedge of those that intended to go to hedge fully without any decrease. They lost pantalla accepted from them for their sincere intention. May Allah subhanaw taala accept and facilitate for all of those that intend to do Hajj in the future may Allah allow us all to have a hedge, mock wall abroad and accepted Hajj done in the near future with the night Allah Allah subhanaw taala accept our deeds in these 10 days and beyond May Allah make us amongst those

00:00:58--> 00:01:35

that are forgiven on the devout offer that are accepted on the day ratify whose sacrifices are accepted may last parents Allah allow us to be amongst those that worship him properly now and always be the night owl and make the best of our deeds, the last of them a llama amine gelatin. And just a reminder, before we get started with the topic, that hamdulillah bromine we have a lot of content that's going out for the hedger. We have the previous year series on the virtues of the hedgehog 10 days on the virtues of the hedgehog. We have articles, papers that were written about the spiritual significance, the rituals, the meanings behind those rituals. We have infographics on

00:01:35--> 00:02:14

the hedge and the meanings of hedge. And then of course, we have the hedge my hedge story series, which is running at hamdulillah on all of your gains pages right now where our fellows are sharing their own experiences and some personal lessons from their own experiences of hedge. And then we have a lot about Ibrahim it is handled by me that's very intentional to really allow us to connect Brahim it has to them in a special way, as he is a special Prophet, especially a special messenger of Allah. And so some of you have been following the voice in the desert, which goes through the eyes of Islam, but then connects the eyes of abroad to the eyes of the prophets. I saw them and then

00:02:14--> 00:02:56

ultimately to our own personal drives as well, and some lessons we can take from those personal drives. So I hope you're following along and shout out as that's being released every night at 8pm. Eastern. And then we also have if you go to our that hedger portal, you'll find infographics on the life of blogging, writing some infographics on the virtues of all humanity. So there are so many different elements in Charlottetown. And that helped us to really understand how central Islam is to our faith and didn't die. Tyler were able to honor the call of Ibrahim alayhis salam in these days, which are of course in honor of him as well as the last panel to Anna has chosen that these are the

00:02:56--> 00:03:18

days that we engage in these in these acts of worship and these extra acts of worship and in the entire process of Hajj is an honoring of Ibrahim is that as well. So inshallah tada please do follow along and of course, we would encourage everyone to donate for the first 10 days of the hedger inshallah Tada. And you can do that below inshallah, tada, may Allah reward you all and except from you.

00:03:19--> 00:04:02

And Charles, I'll get into the topic now. So the hedge of the heart or the hedge of the soul is one that's particularly interesting, and there's a lot to get to that subject from Sharla Tana. So I want to start off with this heavy from Amazon and also the long tail and who, who says when Allah subhanaw taala instilled the love of Islam in my heart, I came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said to me, or I said to him, stretch out your right hand so that I may pledge my allegiance to you. And so the prophets lie some stretched out his right hand, so he was going to the Prophet size on to become Muslim, and also to give allegiance to the Messenger of Allah sallallahu

00:04:02--> 00:04:44

alayhi wasallam. So he said, stretch out your right hand, the prophets I'm stressed out his right hand and then our last are the longtime and who withdrew his hand momentarily. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked him what happened or ometer, what is it? And also the low tide? And he said, I want to lay down a condition I want to put a condition of this bay out of the slump. And the prophets lie. Some said, what is it that that condition is what condition Do you want to put forward and he said that I would be forgiven for everything that I have done before this moment. So how long I'm going to also be a long time. It was a recognition that he spent his life in defiance

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

of the prophets lysozyme at least the beginning of Islam, the beginning days of Islam, he went to Abba, Sonia and try to persuade Natasha to send back the Mahajan, the migrants to Abyssinia to Mecca so they could be persecuted. He was amongst those that

00:05:00--> 00:05:37

fought against the profits license that led the charge against the profit slice. But he devised against the profit slice. I mean, there was so much that he did. And he was worried about it. So he's asking the prophets lie Selim for forgiveness for all of that. And the prophets lie, some could have simply told him that you are forgiven. And it may have come off, you know, some of the scholars say the wisdom of how the Prophet slicin was going to answer this question is that if the prophets lie, some told him Yes, that may have come off as a specific covenant with and it might have come off as some sort of favoritism, but instead the prophets lie. Some spoke about the concept he spoke

00:05:37--> 00:06:20

about the principle he said to him and also the low tide and who first and foremost Are you not aware of the fact that Islam wipes out all that was done before it. So first and foremost, Islam wipes out all that was done before it so when a person becomes Muslim, at everything that they have done before the moment that they become Muslim is forgiven so Islam wipes out everything that came before it, but then the Prophet slice alum expanded and he said and migration and his law wipes out everything that has been done before it and then the profits license that and Hajj wipes out everything that was done before and accepted Hajj wipes out everything that was done before. So the

00:06:20--> 00:07:06

Prophet slicin gave these three things that wipe out all previous misdeeds and inshallah tada the the good deeds that were done before those moments only continue and they are beautified and made acceptable to a loss patterns and uh, through the prism of Islam. And so you don't have to worry about this right? And he's telling I'm Rasul the law of town and who you don't have to worry about this anymore. But what's of interest to me in sha Allah Tada, and you know, for the sake of this cultiva, what I'd like to speak about is this idea of the comparison between Islam and hatch, Islam, Allah and hatch. And this is a powerful connection that you'll find the prophets lysozyme makes

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

often between Islam and hedra. Okay, so hingeless the migration, and it's fleeing with your Islam, right, fleeing with your Islam, and we'll talk about the difference between Hitler in the in the technical sense in the apparent sense and his,

00:07:20--> 00:08:00

in some of the meanings that it conceals. First and foremost, there's the hadith of Abdullah Ahmed and the loss of the Allahu taala and humor. So this is the son of Allah Ross. This is Abdullah, who narrates the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Muslim and setting the Muslim woman melissani he will end well how'd you manhandled Amanda Hello. And that a Muslim is the one who avoids harming Muslims with his tongue and hands. And by the way, there's another narration which is also authentic and study madness. Whoever avoids harming the people with their tongue and hands and the Mohajer is the one who gives up that which Allah Subhana Allah has forbidden who migrates away

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

from that which Allah subhanaw taala has forgiven now, I'm going to talk about the first part of the Hadeeth in a future in a future virtual hultman Sha Latina. And by the way, next week, we won't have one there will be the day of eat. So after next week, and also two weeks from now, so I'll get to the first part later because the first part of this had the about men setting men Muslim woman resigning, here we go the connects actually to last week's Friday reflections. So I actually want to get to the second part, which is more pertinent to the topic now, which is the digital part of this, okay? Obviously, the meaning of this hadith is not that if a Muslim, you know, people feel safe from

00:08:40--> 00:09:17

the hand in the tongue of the Muslim that they don't have to pray five times a day, they don't have to fast they don't have to carry out the obligations of Islam. This is speaking about the completeness of Islam, right, and Islam that carries from faith to character because the prophets lie Selim always made the connection between faith and character. So this is speaking about that, you know, and there are numerous Hadith where the prophets lie some is talking about the importance of the Islam that we have encompassing our characters our faith, encompassing our character and beautifying our character and bringing us closer to Allah subhana wa Tada. But the digital part of

00:09:17--> 00:09:59

this is very interesting. And inshallah tada we can build on that to really think about what are some of the meanings of Hajj that we can have in our lives even as we are not there? Even as we're not able to make the hedge physically and in a technical sense, what are some of the meanings of hedge that are encompassed in our lives? So, first and foremost, talk about the history here, hedge law, you know, linguistically, it means Toka sheet, it means to leave something. And so the hedge lot is of two types. First and foremost, there is the, the apparent digital which is the obvious way of it that the technical way of it and the the fullest understanding of digital

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

Which is one one flees with their religion from fitna from trials. And so, you know, when you're talking about the mohajir on the people of Mecca, they fled with their faith from Mecca to Medina. And they had an opportunity they could have relinquished their faith in Mecca and stayed in Mecca and lived in peace, right? If these people would have left Islam, they would have been able to stay in Mecca and avoid the persecution, avoid the migration. After all, all of the tactics that were being employed by the people of Mecca, by flourish on the Muslims was meant to deter them from Islam and to protect as they saw it protect the environment from the effect of Islam, right, so they could

00:10:44--> 00:11:23

have left Islam, and lived in peace in Mecca, but they chose to remain firm on their Islam. And so the only way that they could maintain their Islam going forward was with his luck with the migration to Medina, to flee from persecution so that they could practice their faith properly. And so you have the people that made his own to Abyssinia, then you have the people that made his way up to Medina, then you have this special group of people that made both hingeless. And and that's a topic in and of itself, that those that actually have migrated to avicennia and then migrated once again, to Medina, and would have the reward of both of those, those hingeless. So that's the that is the

00:11:23--> 00:12:05

his law, right? That is the his law. And within that concept of his law, literally fleeing with your faith, persecution, and there are elements of that hyjal Today, there are people that fleed that move that migrate because of their Islam because of the the need to practice their faith and the intention to maintain their Islam to maintain their practice of faith. And they don't feel like they can properly do that, where they are or they're being forced out, bid the night out. They'd have the reward of that. But of course, there's the ultimate hits, which is the hinge of the prophets lie some of the companions to Medina. And and so there's the narration about there's no Israel after the

00:12:05--> 00:12:40

fact after the conquest of Mecca. But that's the the ultimate heads of the heads Well, okay. So this is the apparent Hitler, fleeing with your religion from a place where you're not able to practice your religion, either because of a persecutor or someone who is oppressing you, or because you, you find that you're no longer able to practice in that place. And so it's a voluntary hedge a voluntary means of fleeing with your faith. Now, the second part of that is what the prophets I send them spoke about here,

00:12:41--> 00:13:07

which is the the inner meaning of the hizballah. And that is the abandonment of that which misleads the soul. And that which the shape on calls to, to the acceptance of the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala, and the pursuit of Allah's pleasure. So it's to leave off, to leave off that which is displeasing to Allah subhanaw taala Adam, and that Allah one, and of course, that is, you know, made

00:13:08--> 00:13:54

or beautified for us through this the call of the shape on and through, Enough said amata, the misleading self. And so a person abandons that which the shape on calls to abandons that which the lower self calls to and instead accepts embraces, commits themselves to the obedience of Allah subhanaw taala. And to that higher calling to that higher purpose, and this type of his law is connected to the other type of hitter as well, right. So it is the sacrifice the commitment that you're willing to make, to move away from that which is held on to that which is praiseworthy, and the connection to Islam, of course, and you see, people when they first embrace Islam, they have a

00:13:54--> 00:14:35

hard time making hits away from their old habits. And so you've moved from creed to creed. You've moved to the creed of Islam, but the practices are difficult. You've got old habits that that you have a hard time with. And this is true even with Toba, right, especially Toba for major sin, that it's hard to leave behind some of those old habits, some of those old practices. And so there was a curve, even for the companions of the Prophet sly salon. Some of them had a curve, right, it took them time to abandon some of those things. And there was, of course, some of that calculated in the nature of the industry or the nature of the legislation, and the graduality of how things came down

00:14:35--> 00:14:59

to the profit slice and to account for that curve. So there's the individual curve, and then there's the community curve. But you see this even when people when they first become Muslim, that they struggle sometimes, right. And, in fact, most of the time and we struggle as well if we have to leave off an old habit that we're so accustomed to. And so there's Islam and then there's Hitler, in that sense, right abandoning that, which is displeasing to Allah subhanaw taala

00:15:00--> 00:15:41

In pursuit of that, which is pleasing to Allah subhana wa Tada. So the hits of La builds on the Islam, the connection between the two as well. The two types of Islam that are spoken about here is what the prophet slicin. I mentioned, for example, I don't you bother to fill heritage kids out in LA, that to worship a loss of parents in difficult times is like making his way up to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And so there is the higit, or the discontinuation of the physical hits at all, once Mecca was open to Islam, and to comfort the hearts of those that didn't take part in the physical Islam, right. But the reality of the law, the spirit of the hidrive is encompassed in

00:15:42--> 00:16:26

abandoning that which Allah subhanaw taala has prohibited even when it becomes extremely difficult to abandon those things. And so sometimes, a person just has a hard time making his law away from the things that are displeasing to Allah subhanaw taala because of the desire the strong pole and the desire towards those things, but then you add on to that persecution and fitna and the hardship of of practicing Islam, right, just practicing Islam, then that becomes all the more rewardable in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so, you know, you find this beautiful construction here of Islam and then Hitler. Okay, so where does Hajj fall into all of this? How do we then start to talk

00:16:26--> 00:17:18

about the hedge hedge is to flee away from something right so hinted at is to abandon that which is displeasing to Allah subhanaw taala. Hajj is too long for Allah subhanaw taala to direct that longing to Allah subhanaw taala. And so, you know, a few weeks ago, we talked about the various doors and paths of shape on and then that one path of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right. So if you're fleeing from all of those doors, you have that one direction, that one longing that one pursuits, that one path back to a loss of Hannah Montana, right. And so what you know what you're fleeing from, but have you really encompassed what you are fleeing to, okay, so the taking refuge in a loss

00:17:18--> 00:17:55

of Hannah Montana, and then directing your longing to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And so some of the scholars when they talk about this in Tesco, they talk about, you know, the detachment from sin in the physical sense, by the way, that sometimes you have detached yourself from a sin and that you've repented from that sin and so you've made Hitler from that sin, but the heart still yearns for those sins. Now, what you want to do is not just physically detach from those sins, but then physically connect yourself to the obedience of Allah subhanaw taala. And in the process of physically connecting yourself to the obedience of Allah subhanaw taala your heart starts to yearn for a loss

00:17:55--> 00:18:33

of how to how to in a way that it yearns less for those things that it has left behind for the sake of a loss of time. And so there's a physical turning, and then a spiritual turning that takes place. And so with Hendra, you don't for example, decide that you're only going to quit How long? Once your heart feels at ease with quitting how long right once you know something is forbidden and displeasing to a loss of parents aren't even if it's going to hurt, it's going to be bitter. It's gonna it's gonna be tough. you disconnect from that right away, right? So you make kids away from that which is displeasing to Allah Subhana, WA, Tada. And then Hajj, right, the cost, the objective,

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

the yearning for Allah subhanaw taala, turning yourself physically towards the Qibla physically towards that direction, and physically towards that which is pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala. And then the heart finding its pleasure finding its pursuit, finding its meaning, finding its sense of purpose in Allah. Right. So heads up, away from all of those paths back to Allah subhanaw taala and Hajj is acculist. Hajj is that objective? Hajj is that you are dedicated now that you're making a turn in life, it's probably even the physical action of Hajj By the way, a lot of people will struggle with sins for their entire lives, and they don't know how to quit those sins, but then they

00:19:18--> 00:19:55

kind of set Hajj up like it's had, I'm gonna go to Hajj and once I go to Hajj, I'm gonna quit this. Okay. And I want to actually say here, by the way, that if you had intentions to quit things, once you go to Hajj, you should know very well by now that hedge is not a guarantee for you, in the sense of they're a body of hedge the actual act of hedge. It's not a guarantee for you and never was a guarantee for you. But it's only being solidified this year that things can happen where hedge will not happen, or might not be able to happen for you. And so you can't put off Toba to that moment. But sometimes you find people right that that is the only time that they're able to come back to a

00:19:55--> 00:20:00

loss patterns and to transform themselves had is as an

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

Act, you know, an act of worship, that can cleanse a person of all of the spiritual ills that kept them away from Allah subhanho wa Taala. But there's something else that connects Hajj to this, this construction of Islam, which is the initial submission, and then what that translates into of Hilah, which is abandoning that which is pleasing to us, which is displeasing to a loss of hundreds and favor for that for that, which is pleasing to a loss. And then that direction. And that longing for a loss of Hannah Hannah, right? And imagining the call of Ibrahim alayhis salaam, when Rahim Instagram calls to the house of Allah subhanaw taala. And people come from all over the world with

00:20:44--> 00:21:28

all different ways, some on the backs of camels, some in the, in the seats of an airplane, you know, everyone comes in a different way, calling or responding to the call of a loss of Hannah hota Anna, out of that longing for a loss of Hannah Montana, right? answering the call of a loss of hearts and longing for the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala the way that Ibrahim and Islam himself did and the way that he intended for those who answer that call, that they come longing for a loss of kinda hope to add, wanting a loss penalty, desiring a loss of nanotyrannus pleasure, so much so that in the pursuit of the desire in the pursuit of the pleasure of a loss of how not to have the desires for

00:21:28--> 00:22:12

other things dissipate because they're no longer significant, because you're overwhelmed by that sense of purpose, which is found in the pursuit of a loss of Hannah Montana. And so that's where the loss of the heart starts to come. Right? That that it's not just a person physically, making pull off around the camera, but awful clothes off of the hearts as one of the as one of the pious said that how many bodies make heads without hearts and how many hearts make heads without bodies? Right? How many people are there physically, that would make the laugh, but their hearts are not really there. And how many people whose hearts are there, but their bodies are not there? Right? They see

00:22:12--> 00:22:51

Hajj every year and they say yeah, Allah, Allah, right, because their hearts are connected to a loss of hands on their hearts are connected to acts of obedience to Allah subhanaw taala. And so their hearts yearn and burn for the moment that they could have the opportunity to physically make Hutch to have their bodies follow what their hearts have already decided upon. right to have their bodies follow with their hearts have already decided upon. And by the way, you find this in even the diary of unhedged medical Chavez, Malcolm X Rahim Allah to Allah, we spoke about how he thought about himself as he was making Hajj. And he thought about this man in India, that would have a picture of

00:22:51--> 00:23:29

the Kaaba on the wall, and that would look at the wall and look at the picture of the Kaaba and cry and Allah subhanaw taala wash away that person sins and accept their heads, even SubhanAllah. He made that realization, or he came to that realization and he was there seeing some people that were privileged to be able to do Hajj but might not have had the the sincere pursuit whereas there are people that don't have the privilege to make Hajj but they have the sincere pursuit. And so the Hajj, the physical Hajj is the culmination of what they've already sincerely spiritually decided upon and have connected themselves to Allah subhana wa Tada. And that's the part here that's

00:23:29--> 00:24:14

important. That taqwa by the way, is the abandonment of sin. Right taqwa is the abandonment of sin. And the sun and excellence is the pursuit of a loss of antis pleasure and excellent ways which translates into doing more and more and more and added quality in your in your obligations and an added quantity of your voluntary good deeds that to worship Allah subhanaw taala as if you can see him and if you can't see him, then you know that he sees you and so there's, there's this this zeal in worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala that is too great to be encompassed by the sight of others and, and and it's it's translated most in the yearning of the heart and then the performance of

00:24:14--> 00:24:55

those good deeds in accordance with that yearning of the heart for a loss of Hannah Montana's pleasure. It's kind of like I'll I'll just talk about this inshallah Tada. In conclusion as well, when you think about an act that the prophets I seldom mentioned gives us the reward of hedge even as we are away from the the practice of hedge the profit slice on talked about praying a lot of budget and then remaining in the masjid going to the masjid first a lot of budget. The last fantana opened the doors of the Mazda to us once again, and staying insalata staying after so lots of fudges, remembering the last pattern tada reading your remembrances reading his book and reading his

00:24:55--> 00:24:59

words until the time of they'll have comes until the time of the sunrise comes

00:25:00--> 00:25:45

And then you would pray to cars or or more in remembrance of a loss of hands on the Prophet sighs I mentioned that whoever does this has the full reward of Hajj. Now, obviously that doesn't take into consideration, the the struggle, right that the finances that are spent to get to hedge the physical toll of doing hedge and so many other things. But this is the reward of hedge as in the act of hedge itself similar to some of the scars mentioned. You know, when you find when the prophet SAW some talks about a person who says about the Holloway the whole luxury color 100 times that it's like freeing 10 slaves, the, the the reward, the actual reward or the struggle and all that goes into the

00:25:45--> 00:26:27

freeing of the slaves and the obligation of freeing the slaves and or freeing the enslaved as an expiation as a CAFOD. All of these things cannot be replaced by that, but there's a beautiful connection, right? There's a beautiful connection. And so there's a connection right to this idea of sitting in the masjid after Salatin faj yearning for Allah subhanho wa Taala. Remembering the loss of habitat and not moving from your place until the sun rises, and then after the sun rises, after some time a person gets up and prays as well and the prophets lie Some said they have the reward of Hajj, complete, complete, complete complete. One of the names of Salaam aloha is a lot of our being.

00:26:27--> 00:27:08

And a web is the one who's turned back to a loss of habitat a yearning for a loss of habitat, nevermind, no web, your body is yearning for a loss of Hannah Montana. And this is taken from the honeycomb Sahih Muslim, where the Prophet slicin went out to the people of Oba and he found them in Salah. And he says a lot of our being is when the young camels lift up their feet in meaning from the heat of the surface. So it's sometime after the sun has risen and that's when these people still they've been waiting for the time. They've been remembering the last pants out for this time and then they pray to Allah subhanaw taala in a voluntary deed, yearning for a loss of habitat and some

00:27:08--> 00:27:52

of the scholars By the way, you know, particularly from the from the Hanafi school say that salata wellbeing refers to the voluntary prayers aftermath of the sixth occurs between Muslim and arratia based on some narrations, and some of the scholars say salata, there's nothing wrong with actually referring to both salata and the voluntary prayer between buffalo Venetia. Salatin a well being the point is, is that it it shows a person who is connected to a loss of hundreds and a yearning for Allah subhanaw taala. At times when others sleep at times when others become distracted a time when others are doing things that that are worldly, they find ways to connect to a loss of data in those

00:27:52--> 00:28:38

times and there's a sincere yearning for Allah subhana wa tada for his pleasure that's found in those times. And so all of this is to say dear brothers and sisters that while Hajj has been taken away from us physically this year, the cost, the objective, the determination, the purpose of Hajj has not been taken away from us, that pleasure and that yearning, that yearning for the pleasure of Allah subhana wa tada and the pleasure found in yearning for the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala. All of that is still there is still our Qibla and we still have the opportunity to do to off with our hearts and to remain in that direction. longing for our last panels I were still called to do

00:28:38--> 00:29:19

hinge away from that which Allah subhanaw taala has prohibited to complete the construction, right of Islam in our hearts of true submission in our hearts as we celebrate an honored Ibrahim alayhis salaam, who of course was if Allah Allah horrible Islam, kada Islam to the man who was Lord told him to submit, he submitted himself he said, I submit myself to the Lord of the worlds. And so we submit ourselves to the Lord of the Kaaba, by remaining in that longing remaining in that yearning for Allah subhana wa Tada. We pray that Allah subhanaw taala accept once again, the sincere intention of those who want to go to Hajj but have been unable to go for Hajj this year or in other years may

00:29:19--> 00:29:56

last can't accept that as a full Hajj. May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to be amongst those that fully submit ourselves to Him that fully abandon that which is displeasing to him, and that are fully in pursuit of that which is pleasing to Him. May Allah subhanaw taala allow our hearts to yearn for him always in our deeds to follow and May Allah subhanaw taala make the best of our deeds and the last of our days. May Allah subhanho wa Taala allow us to be amongst those that are shaded under his throne on the Day of Judgment May Allah subhanho wa Taala as we have been prohibited from being able to be in the shade of the cabin may have lost contact makers amongst those that are in

00:29:56--> 00:30:00

the shade of the throne on the day of judgment as we have been prohibited

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

from being in the city of the prophet SAW Selim this year May Allah Subhana Allah Allah make us amongst those that are in the companionship of the Prophet slice Allah on the Day of Judgment around his health in general for the dose alone, I mean, does that allow hate unto you all once again Charla Tao Please follow along with the various series and the content that we have coming out, please follow along with with this particular series of voice in the desert.
