Series: Omar Suleiman - His Hajj Story
When a las panatela talks about calling people to his path with wisdom and beautiful preaching, the wisdom, according to most of the scholars, is making sure that you give people the preaching in proportion to where they're at so that they can properly grow. Now at no point does that mean concealing the truth or making wrong seem like right. But whether you're speaking to the individual and building their character, or you're speaking to a community, you build them in accordance with where they are at, you prioritize certain elements of the message, and you build and you build and you build then you built now with the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wasallam, you can imagine as he
looked around, and he saw all of the wrongdoing in hajj in particular, all of the innovations, all of the indecency, that the Prophet slicin had a desire to change this as quickly and as strategically as possible, but he was why sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and that's why he should have the alonside on her. When the Prophet slicin told her that Do you know that your people built the Kava wrong that the structure itself is actually not in the same way that Ibrahim it is set on built in the Prophet slice lm when he said that to Isha, her immediate reaction was, Well, why don't we go ahead and change it, let's go ahead and reconstruct it on the way of Ibrahim it his Salah, but the
Prophet sly, some said your people are still new. And so I don't want to divide them over this rather, the important thing is that they fulfill the original purpose of the structure rather than the structure being in accordance with the original structure.
So one of the innovations of the people of Mecca and it's really interesting because they were stricter than Islam in some ways. And it's not because they believed in Allah or they believed in an afterlife, it's because they wanted to honor their ancestors. So they had these practices and these cultural things that were so rigid. One of the things that they said was that you cannot make our omura in the sacred months. And what you see from the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is that all four of the aromas of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were initiated in the cardia, which is one of the sacred months, the third owner of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam takes place right
where we left off last time right after the Battle of her name. So the prophets lie Selim comes to Mecca, obviously, in his armor, and in Santa Monica. In the conquest of Mecca, he did not do a home run, and then immediately they went to her name. And after they finished her name, the expectation was that they would return back to Medina, but the Prophet sallallahu wasallam every time he comes to Mecca, after the hizballah, there has to be a homeowner he does not want to go back to Medina without observing the sacred ritual. So the Prophet sallallaahu, Selim takes up his harem in a place called Lj Ilana. And in fact, there's a Masjid now, which marks the exact place where the prophets
license entered into a ROM so that we too, if we would like to enter into a ROM from that place, and he goes at night after the Battle of her name, and he performs aroma and in the same night, he goes back to Medina from the Harlem after performing his third aroma in Islam sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so that's the eighth year after his. And things were still too unstable to commission a serious Hajj from Medina. So the Prophet slicin on wants things to stabilize around Mecca, before commissioning a hedge. So now it's the ninth year. And the ninth year is a year in which tab book took place, which was a very difficult journey for the Muslims. The prophets lie some took the
largest army he had ever taken to confront what was seemingly a Roman attack. And he goes out so the law when he was dealing with 10s of 1000s of soldiers in these difficulties in the month of Rajab, in the ninth year, and he returned sallalahu, it was some in Ramadan. And of course, that is the year as well that you had desperate plots from the hypocrites in Medina who knew that they were losing all ground that they had to try to unseat the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and Allah subhanaw taala foiled all of their plans at that point. And this is actually when the song pilot had better Alena than a seed was actually Sung. According to correct accounts and no claim rahimullah data, he
mentions that one of the reasons for that is that the need to adapt the value of our data is from the direction of a sham, not from the direction of Mecca. And so in the part of the song, where they mentioned that the Prophet slicin Rose upon them from the Valley of weather, and they mentioned and we owe it to show gratefulness wetjet Basha Kuru Alina, Madame de la hida as long as a supplicate or invokes Allah subhanho wa Taala that this was after tebu can that shows you that the love that the people of Medina had for the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was not only when he first arrived, but it only grew with every year that he was amongst them sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So now comes
the time of Hajj. Now at this point fucky is Muslim. Now the areas around
mcta are Muslim, there's a thought that perhaps the Prophet sallallahu wasallam will go out to hedge that year. However, this would be the year that the Prophet slicin would first send abou Beckett, a study called the Allahu tada and with a group of 300 Muslims to do the Hajj and abubaker would hence become the first image of Hajj in Islam. Some of the scholars mentioned that that is because the Prophet slicin and was busy with the with food with the delegations that year that tribes were coming from all over the world to embrace Islam. And so the Prophet sly son wanted to give that its do right you know, the 10s of 1000s of people that were embracing Islam and Medina. Some say that
the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not want to perform the Hajj, while others were still doing so with some of the rituals of ignorance, particularly performing pull off without clothes. And so this was one of the objectionable acts of jelly of the days of ignorance that the prophets by some report, which was that they will do tawaf naked, and this is in fact, the context of the ayah who Xena tecoma in the coolie Masjid, that you take your best clothes to every Masjid and Allah some parents are referring to it as a fact he shot as an act of shamelessness that the people would do toe off and nudity. So the prophets lie some did not want this. And this would be the one year the
ninth year after his thought that the Muslims and the pagans would perform Hajj together. So this is the last year that this is going to take place that Muslims and pagans perform Hajj in their own ways together. And this would be the year that all of the rituals of the days of ignorance would be done away with. So for example, they used to carve out holes in their homes, to not enter from the front and they saw this as an act of righteousness and a loss of penance as as well as a liberal be in touch with the Buddha and the holy Ha. Well, I can a little one minute tough Ah, and it is not righteousness that you enter into your homes from the back but rather righteousness is with taqwa is
with God consciousness and piety. So, all of the rituals of the days of ignorance, those that were seemingly more righteous, those that were more rigid, those that were more lenient, those that were Shameless, all of these things were meant to be done away with, before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would commission his Hajj it his thoughts was set up, so the Hajj of apobec Little De La tada and who is not to really set the stage for the next year, when the Prophet sly son would come with all of the Muslims on his farewell hedge. Now the narration of apobec it'll be a lot of time whose hedge comes from jabil. The alongside Daniel and Jabba bin Abdullah are the alonside and who
is most frequent narrator of the heads of the prophets lifetime as well. So Jabba was witnessing much of this himself or the Allah tada and is the most extensive narrator about the way that hedge was taking place in Islam. So he says that when the prophets lie Sam came back from the era of Lj Ivana, he appointed apobec kill the alota and who to lead the Hajj. So he said we went out with him until we reached the area of the image. And the karma for frigid was called so Rebecca the lowdown who stood up to start the salata, saitec bead and just as he was about to, he started to hear a camel grunting behind him, and he said to himself, that this is the camel of Rasulullah sallallahu
alayhi wa sallam, he recognized the granting of the camel of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he said perhaps the Prophet slice alum has reconsidered and he's going to do Hajj and he's here now so we'll get to pray behind him. Instead of Rebecca will the law of town who turned around and he saw earlier the allot of time on the candle of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam which signifies obviously that he was sent by the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So Rebecca will the alongside and who immediately says to him, you don't I'm Rasul? Are you coming to assume the responsibility of the immediate of Hajj? Or are you coming as a messenger? He said, No, rather I
was sent as a messenger by the messenger sallallahu wasallam, with Al Bara, which is sort of the Toba and the Prophet slicin ordered me to recite it to the people in all of the different stations of Hajj. So he said, we came to Mecca, and one day before the day of Tuttavia, which is the eighth of the hedger, apobec kettle, the low tide and who stood up and he addressed the people telling them about the way that they should perform the Hajj. As soon as he finished it, it'll be a lot of time who stood up, and he recited suited to Toba until the end, and then they went out on the day of alpha, I will bet there will be a long time who wants again he stood up and he addressed the people
teaching them how to do the hedge. As soon as he finished it all the alongside and who stood up and he recited sort of to tober until the end of it. Then on the day of the day of the sacrifice again, Abubakar stands up after he finishes it, it'll be a lot of time and who stands up and he tells the people he recites to the people sort of to tober and then again on the days of touchy apobec it'll be a lot of time who stands up and he addresses the people and it it'll be alongside and who stands up and he recites so
October again. So this was consistently happening in the hedge, and upper Hodeidah or the Ulta annual he describes that I was in fact one of the people that have Rebecca will the Allahu tada and who had sent out to proclaim that no pagan should perform Hajj after this year, and no one should do throw off again without clothes. So this was the year that it was ensured that no one will come again performing the acts of God of the acts of the days of ignorance within Hajj. And this was something that was sent out as a message to all of the people that had come from all over the world to set the stage for the one ultimate Hajj of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with his
companions, which would be done in the exact same way that Djibouti and it his Salaam type Ibrahim alayhis salaam and that Jubilee rally has said and done taught the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
In these days as we exert ourselves with all sorts of good deeds that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us, we invite you to spend in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala so that we may all further ourselves along this journey and draw closer to Him.
