the past five weeks, we've been
reading the idea
of Abdullah ignore a burst of the alarm Hama from Mohali
in relation to the Prophet Ibrahim and his
and his family
is suddenly smart.
smart, easily history mom's mother Hatcher of the law
the barren valley of Makkah.
Were they eventually settled, and
after some time, the property that our human system is
both built the garba have a last parameter,
we started the whole of heavy and there were many references to both the House of Allah
and the well of the water of Zionism.
And I did promise during the Hadith that I would reserve discussion, or postpone the discussion of both the garba anthems and until after we well till the end. So now that we've completed the idea today, in Sharla, as a continuation of the commentary of that,
I hope to discuss a few things about the virtues in the history of the house of Allah. And, inshallah, next week, we will discuss the war tropisms. And
one of the reasons for not going into too much detail during the Hadeeth is that it would have just prolonged it. So it was better to complete it first, and it still took five weeks. And now we can speak about the camera.
Like with most topics, in the court, and in the heavy, the subject of the garba is vast, and I would not be able to encompass
most, let alone all of its details in just one session. So I'll try to cover as much as possible.
parts of it may be repetitive, repetitive in the sense that most of us already know a bit about the garba and its history, and some of its virtues. So for such people, it seems to be a repetition, but
and they may find some of the details and explanation rather simplistic, but I have been specific requested to
keep in mind, those who don't know much about the history of the gather at all.
Last time who were there and I mentioned the word garba. twice and the hold of God
had the embedded little garba and jerilyn larval capital baited her arm of the almond in mass. So last time what data refers to the gamma bytes named twice in the Holy Quran and what exactly is the meaning of the word
Gather. While the word is actually related to meanings, meaning it actually encompasses two meanings.
In Arabic, God means to rise and to protrude.
This is why the heels, sorry, the ankles are referred to while each ankle is referred to gang, because it protrudes and sticks out from the rest of the leg.
So anything which protrudes and rises, but anything that protrudes, is referred to as a guide, or a guide.
Also, it sounds rather coincidental, but even in Arabic, one of the meanings of garb is something which is squared or cube. So, a cube so gam cube. So it's actually related to both meanings and the garba. In mccurtain, mahkamah, when he was built,
the Arabs always referred to it as the building with four sides. So much so that the earlier Arabs, it's actually been mentioned that out of respect for the holy Ganga
in and around the Kaaba in muckety muck aroma, we're talking about the earliest of the Arabs, they all ensured that their homes were built round and circular, and not as a square or four sides so that they could always distinguish their own earthly homes from the cube Gabba have a last panel with that. And it was only later that one of them broke this tradition. And then most people followed him. So it's of note that the earliest Arabs actually built their homes
differently to the gamma, they made sure that they were circular and round. And that was out of respect for the house of last panel.
that's it, it's just a simple protruding,
cube like structure.
And just like water, there are all kinds of drinks in the world.
Many different potions and mixtures and flavors and textures,
extractions of fruits and vegetables.
And there may be healthy, beneficial, nutritional, colorful, and yet inexpensive, and yet nothing. Nothing can match the simplicity of water.
And the same can be said about the gamma have a Lost Planet.
It's a very simple structure. And indeed, there are other homes other buildings and structures and edifices that tower above the gather in heights that are grand in their scale, that are magnificent in their in the complexity of their architecture. And yet, no building on earth can match the gamma of a last panel without a display. Despite its simplicity, the gamma to other buildings is like water to other fluids and the juices. So it's a simple structure.
Yet it's the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala It houses in one of its corners at a hedge of a sweat the black stone and I'll say more about that later. So what exactly is the history of the garba?
When was it built?
last panel with Allah says in the Quran in a What are they doing what they are doing nasty Linda de Baca Tamara como de la de mi, figure it out in the anatomy, Ibrahim, Allah says verily the the the first house
that was established on earth
for the people
is surely that one which is in Baka
which is just another name for my
and a guidance.
For all the words there in our clear signs.
We the stand of Ibrahim.
Now here in this verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala says that the garba was the first house established
On the earth.
So does that suggest that it was the very first structure ever to be built on earth?
Or does it mean the first house that was built and established for worship?
And for the guidance of mankind?
So was it ever preceded by other houses or buildings anywhere else on earth?
There are two opinions amongst the scholars.
And throughout the history of Islam, we're talking about the scholars of the sea. And the the famous commentators of both of these
have always had two opinions regarding this. One opinion is that indeed, the Garda was first built by
prophets, Adam, it has some even suggested that the foundations were laid by the angels. And then from the tone of the prophets, of them, it has said the Garber suffered collapse damage, or
severe damage because of floods, etc. And over time, you continue to be renovated by various profits, or they must sit down as well as various people.
According to this opinion, the Prophet Ibrahim and he's smart enough that he was merely raised the garba, again, from its original foundations. So that's one opinion.
The other opinion is
although our last panel who would that I say is in a weatherbeaten, would the idea that the first house that was established for mankind
is that one which is
referring to the gamma the house of Allah,
although it last panel, who would say is it This does not mean that it was actually the first structure on earth therefore it wasn't built by the angels, nor was it built by the prophets or the Malaika Salaam. But it was only built by the Prophet Ibrahim and his marine at a restaurant. And this is why their names are so
prominently attached to the construction of the gamba.
there is a clear narration from See you then it is no be thought of the alarm.
in which he stated that he was asked specifically about this verse of the quarter.
But see the idea of the alarm, I was asked that the in the verse Allah says, indeed the very first house that was established for mankind. So he was questioned, that does this mean, there were no other houses before the gamma?
I even thought he would have the alarm replied by saying no, no, there were other homes. But the meaning of the verse is this was the first house that was established for the worship man for the guidance of men.
One of the reasons why many of them are have argued for the validity and the preference of the second opinion, or the validity of the second opinion and its preference over the first is that this narration from a lead, nobody thought he would have the alarm, it was actually quite authentic. So from a leader of the alarm, and we know for sure that that's what he said. So if the alarm has given that explanation that must be must be taken into account. Furthermore, there are no authentic narrations which suggests that the prophets are the man whose salon built the Gabba or the angels built the gap.
Another reason is that if the angels built the garba and they're all the profits are the Miley has said and built the garba. And then Ever since then, various of the prophets and peoples continued to build or renovate the gather.
Then why does the aura and specifically and only refer to the Prophet Ibrahim and is smart, he really he was Salam.
If they were just one of many who built the garba who rebuilt or repaired it or raised it and reconstructed it from its original foundations.
So the fact that
quite significantly and prominently attaches the names of the Prophets given our humanists might either lead him Salaam to the construction of the garba
coupled with the fact that there are no authentic, authentic narrations of anyone having built the gamba before Ibrahim alayhis salam. These two facts as well as the other arguments suggest that indeed, the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam along with this and they were the first people to actually build a gamma of Allah subhanho wa.
There's another interesting question here, mammal hardy mohalla and many others all relate to these from a number of companions. Well, from one companion with another fire to the alarm, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was asked
that what which was the first machine on earth? Uh, you must have been what the hell out of the awana
which was the first mystery. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and mustard and
then he was asked, then which one after and must have had her arm. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
that the second Masjid was a little upset.
So, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was asked, Can I be normal? Now? What was the time difference between the establishment of the garba that unregistered and haram and elements to the
to the property of the love? I think most of them said less than 40 years.
So here the interesting question is that if we argue that the first person to build the garba was the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam,
then who built a Mr. Will xr 40 years after the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam. So the reply is it was the Prophet Ibrahim's
grandson. Yeah, Paul Bettany his Salaam and according to some scholars, it was Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salaam, himself, who lay the foundations of administer the Lok Sabha, just as he built administer to the Hara.
Moving on from this discussion of who actually built the gatherer first so let's go with this opinion that it was a Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salaam and his son the Prophet is.
How does the law refer to the garba in the Holy Quran?
Does that serve you calls it gather twice. He also refers to it as a debate meaning simply the house like he never would have eaten will bear that verily the first house that was established
McConnell bait the place of the house.
he also refers to it as a beta lacteal meaning
the ancient house so it's referred to as elite and it the ancient house, a lot also refers to it as
As he says in sort of the last panel of the Assad the idea he lay the men in the midst of that hot army Elon Musk develops and Livia Ballack now Howler that Glorified be Allah who carry the servants by night from a mystery but how long to master the locks are from the sacred master the walk from the sacred mystery to the fair this question.
why is it called a mustard and haram?
haram simply means forbidden, it means a sanctuary.
So originally, the meaning of haraam wasn't negative. For us, the word haraam is the antonym of Hadar and therefore, there's a lot of negativity attached. But it's actually the other way around, in that the word haraam denotes sanctity, sacredness,
and prohibition, prohibition in the sense that not that it's bad, but that it's too holy, it's too sacred is too grand and great for anyone to approach it.
In many parts of the world, you have, for instance, you have the Forbidden City.
The Forbidden forbidden palaces, and in China, you have the ground
very huge Imperial Forbidden City where non Royals weren't allowed to enter. And why do I mention that because it will help us understand the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam related by Lombardi and others from not random number sheet of the law one in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Allah in the liquidity Malik in Hema
were in the Himalaya him had him that know that every
king has a century. Often this word Hey man is translated as a boundary, but it doesn't really mean boundary means sanctuary. So, the meaning is that throughout history,
the nomadic Arabs, the chieftains, as well as kings, they always had a forbidden area.
And no one could enter into that forbidden area. So the Arabs, the Arab nomads, the chieftain of the tribe, wherever they would travel, the chieftain of the tribe would designate a certain area even though it was just temporary settlement, and that will be marked as
and that will be regarded as the chieftain century, no one else could hunt him.
Similarly, Imperial palaces, cities areas, these were the Hema these were the sanctuaries where nobody could enter because it will forgetten Why would they forbidden, it wasn't a negative connotation, but rather it was grand, it was regal royal to good for anyone to come close to.
So this is what the prophet sallallahu wasallam says, and are in the liquidity Millican Hema, that indeed every king has a sanctuary
we're in the Shema love them how they more and last sanctuary are his prohibitions.
And then they have youth continues, advising us to avoid the hammer the sanctuary of a Lost Planet, more data. That's another discussion. But here
the meaning of and harm is not negative in any sense. It means something which is so grand, so great, so good, so sacred, that it's forbidden, forbidden in the sense that Forbidden Palace or the Forbidden City.
Then, because of the prohibition,
we then get the word haram being the antonym of Halla.
But again, it's not so much a negative, that this is impure.
That's why we call it her.
last panel with the other
assays were heavily mildly more about is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam makes forbidden, the impure things. So of course, one of the reasons for its prohibition is its impurity. But we don't call it home because of its impurity. We should look at it this way that it's impure. Therefore, Allah has declared it forbidden. And we regard it as being haraam because of the prohibition of last Panama with honor that the prohibition of a law is so serious, is so great, that we should go nowhere near it.
So one of the names of the gather is and the and its facility is administered to her on the sacred machine.
So a lot of calls that will be thrown at the ancient house and most of them are on the sacred machine. He calls it just the house bait. He calls it the garba.
Say the mighty Brahim alayhis salaam built the Ganga with the sun smoky lilies. And we covered that in the last part of the earth and when they built it, how did they build it? build it, just father and son.
Lola sees what is your flower Ibrahim, we'll cover in the middle beta is married that Ibrahim and remember when Ibrahim and its marine were raising the foundations of the house and they were building the Gabba as they were building it and upon its completion they continue to pray to Allah urban and urban winner in the mirror and in our our Lord except from his very you're all hearing or knowing. I covered the commentary of these verses that have been out
last week in great detail so I won't repeat myself.
After season Abraham alayhis salaam built the Canada with the smart eagerly Hassan Ibrahim Alayhi Salaam returned to come around and then he may have returned whenever last time
Hola tada instructed him or allowed him to do so. But after the time of and then once they had built the garba Allah Subhana who would the Allah commanded both father and son? In fact they prayed to Allah that Allah show us our rights
make us Muslims. What a denominator second
and show us our monastic Allah rites and rituals of pilgrimage. So Allah Subhana Allah showed them and taught them the rights of pilgrimage to the house of Allah. And upon its completion Allah also told me but I hear from what other than finance will hatch yeah to carry jallianwala Kula Domini Athena mean coulda fujinami the announced to the people
announced the pilgrimage to the people. They shall come to you on foot, and upon every lean camel from every deep ravine.
So it's mentioned in the narrations that Ibrahim alayhis salaam said of Allah who will hear me
who will hear me
and the last panel with data said you announce and some of the Sahaba of the law, including Abdullah members of the illa nkhoma himself, they relate this that
even our humanity has sedans Salam said, Allah who will hear me and last panel Horta, Allah said that you make the announcement, you proclaim the Hajj, the pilgrimage.
And I will ensure that those who are destined to hear it will hear
me Brahim ready has ceram made the announcement of H.
And it's mentioned in this narration that every soul that is destined to visit the house of a Lost Planet hall with
every soul when he was alive at that time, or it was yet to be born, responded with the words in the bake.
And so when a person even now or in the future travels to the house of Allah subhana wa Adana, they are responding to the call of Ibrahim alayhis salam.
this is actually quite similar, although it's it's this isn't. A report from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself is mentioned from some of the Sahaba of the alarm, including the light bus will be a low amount. As I've mentioned, one of the principles is that I'm delighted not obverse of the alarm, along with the other Sahaba of the alarm. If they relate something which cannot be of their opinion, then we accept that they must have heard something to this effect from the sort of loss of the law it was.
So this narration of I'm delighted my boss and others about everyone responding to the color of hedge from Ibrahim alayhis salaam and saying, Look bank, this has a parallel in what Allah has original says in the Quran. That's what other a book can mean many of them in the Hurricane Rita watershed of America and forcing others to become available.
That remember when your Lord
extracted from the
children of Adam, their own children and progeny, are you from each generation, like strapped to the future generation.
And this isn't in terms of birth, but right at the beginning of creation.
And then Allah addressed all the souls that were destined to live.
And he made every soul a witness over itself in respectable law.
Same to eat soul a list of Arabic Who Am I not your Lord, and every single soul replied, but, of course, this is why the recognition of last panel without
the meaning of the Hadeeth couldn't omalu the newly added fitrah but every child is born on nature.
The very meaning of this Hadeeth is that if the child is left in a pure state, without being contaminated by family, friends and environments,
then the innate nature of a human being that pure, clean fitrah
it is preserved
Supposed to recognize in our last panel
because Allah said allow us to better become a more mature Lord, and every soul replied, but of course.
So just as every soul responded them with the words Bella
and recognizes last Hannah, who was
in a way you can look at it like this. There is a Muslim in every human being just waiting to break out.
Because man's in nature, his innate call being recognized as a last panel with In fact, the recognition of a last panel with Anna is every human beings primordial instinct.
Similarly, when he ran, he made he made the announcement. Some of us have battled the alarm relay that the profit of that every soul that was destined to travel to the house of Allah sedlar bake. And when it does embark on that journey.
It's in response to that original call of Ibrahim alayhis salam, and the meaning of the words are beautiful as the last days you make the announcement. What are the financeable hedge? How will they come to you? Yeah to curry Jalla wa ala Kula Domini Athena min Khalifa generically, they will come to you on foot, and every lean camel from every deep ravine and there's this image of the house of Allah subhanho Adana, in the center of the valley of Makkah, surrounded by its mountains, and in that barren VAT, on that barren Valley, without vegetation, without any water, except
people from all over the world using every means of transport, horses, camels, on foot, cars, planes, they converge from all corners of the earth. onto the house of the last panel, more data for the pilgrimage, all in response to the core of that noble Prophet Ibrahim at his
home, who is as I mentioned right at the beginning in Islam, the greatest prophet after the Prophet Ibrahim and after the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the greatest prophet in Islam is Ibrahim A.
After the time will be smart eagerly, the traditions of hedge Morimura and the worship of last panel of Allah with though he'd continued
they continued in a good, pure way, without being corrupted by sheer luck and polytheism or paganism. But gradually over time, as people became corrupt as people strayed and veered from the straight path of their forefathers,
idolatry sets in polytheism paganism setien. And the original rites and rituals of Hajj and Roma continued. But now they had accretions and many layers of innovations, and idolatrous practices. So they were buried the pure practices were buried in the rest of the idolatrous practices.
until the time of the prophets of the law, it was not as far as the garba itself is concerned.
After the town will be smart, easily history now we do know that the garba was repaired and rebuilt on occasions by various people
until the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
and one of the virtues of the gabbeh his that it is a house of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And when the prophets of Allah alayhi wa sallam was about to enter the world, a great event proceeded his company. And that's what law refers to in sort of defeat. And I'm not okay for a lot of what could be his hobby fee till the end. I've commented in detail on this surah so refer to the commentary of the server. But before the time of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam was Beth
Lee, one of the
governors and viceroys in Yemen. He decided to march on the gather with the intentional demolishing it's a last panel with data protected the gamma miraculously and
there's a very
Telling the story of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his grandfather Abdullah.
He was a chieftain of the parish. And when the army when he went out, to speak to the army and negotiate the negotiates with the invading army, or can't at some distance from Makoto Makoto Roma,
they have taken his camels. So I'm gonna tell him
when he met the
when he met up at hand, the others
he said to them, I've come to you to plead for my accounts.
So he was told that we thought you are the chieftain of the Quraysh. You are wise, you are noble. And yet you seem to be so petty and so lonely, that we are about to invade your city and demolish your temple, demolish your Ganga. And yet, you come here pleading with me, not for the garba, but only for your camels. So Abdulmutallab replied by saying that the camels a man.
That's why I'm negotiating with you and pleading with you about my camels in the little beta have been yummy. As for the house, the house has a lord who shall protect.
For camels are mine, I plead with you for my camels. As for the house, the house is a lord who shall protect it. So he was given his camels and everything will deliver returned, and he retreated to the mountains surrounding Makkah, overlooking Makkah, along with the others, and then they witnessed the miraculous incident of the whole army being decimated by the birds of Barbie.
And that's what's referenced in sort of defeat. And until I gave her a book of his hand and feet, as I mentioned, sort of the feel and the next sort of sort of range of what age they are connected one after the other. And towards the end of that sort of, what does the last panel say?
For Yeah, we'll do
that let them so let them arrange worship the Lord of this house. Why does the last parameter Allah mentioned that to them, is that the arrange many of them are witnesses to the destruction of a house army, and the protection of the house of a lots of more data. And they were they were a witness to this miracle.
And they were the first beneficiaries, the primary beneficiaries of all that the garba and Mr. haraam had to offer. And yet that in their in gratitude, they refuse to obey the sort of loss of the law,
or accept laws message. So the British were a witness. And they knew about what had happened on that occasion. In fact, that was one of their dating methods for the calendar. So they would, if they ever refer to something they would say, from the year such and such like it, according to the Muslims. hijra, is the momentous event. So we say, in the 14 136 year of hedger, Christian, say, in the 1800 year of our Lord,
so momentous events, mark the beginning of a cannon. So for the orange and for the Arabs, they actually marked the beginning of their new calendar, from the year of the elephant. So they would actually say, animal feel from so many years after the year of the elephants, so many years, after the year of the elephants, in reference to the story walk to the miracle of the whole army of Abraham being defeated and decimated in such a miraculous manner. So that was a precursor
and a grant tied in of the arrival of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam approximately 35 years later when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was 35 years old.
One of the
one of the tragic incidents and befell the gamma and before I continue I just like to mention something else.
If the Gabba has a house have a last panel
How can we it was
damaged by water by water by fire? How can it sustained severe damage so that even collapsed on vacations or you have to be demolished?
It's the house of Allah.
Why wasn't it consistently
Before I speak about the house of Allah,
in order to understand this, let me mention the prophets of Allah Allah.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the most beloved Prophet of the Last panel.
But when Allah sent him into the world,
alone, Lord did not keep his whole life, a continuous, consistent miracle.
If he had,
just as Allah mentions in a verse,
that if the orange demanded
if God wants to send us a prophet and messenger,
why did he send a man likers?
Molly has over soulier time away Williamson Hill as well. What kind of messenger is this? That he actually eats food and he walks and shops in the marketplaces.
That's the actual translation of the verse.
We won't see an angel.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala answers their question by saying,
if we had sent an angel,
they would have suffered the same confusion. And they would have suffered the same reticence and the same reluctance to believe as they are doing the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu.
The more we raise the threshold,
the greater their disbelief.
So if Allah wished Allah could have sent an angel, but like didn't, Allah always sent him beings as profitable?
Because that was the test. This whole world is a test. If a man sent an angel, where's the test?
If every day of the prophets life was a miracle, where's the test?
The test can only be if
any messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala leads a normal life.
And then he calls for people to believe in him.
But there are signs to aid them to help them to encourage them. A few miracles here and there. That honesty that integrity, different signs, these signs, aid and help.
But people still have to make a choice. If the evidence was blind,
if the evidence was absolutely overwhelming,
then where's the test.
This is why many choose to believe just before they die.
Meaning when they when a person passes away, and if they are still conscious.
What they call near death experience is the life of the hereafter and the afterlife and the other realm opening.
And if a person this is why we refer to it as animal raid, meaning the realm of the unseen. And this is why Allah says in the Quran, you only believe they believe in the unseen. That is a test of their faith. If it's all seen, if the barriers between us and the earth, if the barriers between us and the other world are removed, where's the man wears the faith wears a test
and there is no email.
This is why when when those veils are removed between this world and the next, there is no acceptance of email.
Because it's not human. It's not faith any.
So this is a test. The prophets of Allah had a he was Salam was sent into the world. As him beings. They lived. They act, they drank, they suffered injury. They were ill.
They suffered fever, the counter our own Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He was broke his leg. He was poisoned. he bled
He lost his teeth in battle.
He was injured.
He passed out he was unconscious in his final days, he passed in and out of consciousness.
He was grieved
on occasions. He suffered many different calamities, bereavement, physical pain, emotional pain,
the pain of loss,
sort of soul loss alarm it was sent him was sent as a messenger of Allah. And there's no better way to describe this than that verse in the Quran, where in the last panel with the other essays, or ma'am hamedan in Law School of Public
Affairs, Matt authored an
she was shocked in this verse was revealed after the Battle of word, because in the backseat of a herd, as I said he was injured. And in the confusion because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was retreating to the safety of the mountain along with a very small group of Sahaba of the law, protecting him there was great confusion on the battlefield.
In that confusion, word spread that he had been killed
as a result of which some of us have battled the law and became demoralized.
One or two of them even lay down their weapons.
Others said, Well, if he has passed away, there is no meaning to life after him. And they threw themselves into the battle.
Later they realize that no, he was just a room and he was he was injured, the safe and well after the battle last pranamar with Allah reveal this verse. What was the lesson? The lesson was that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is important to you without that, he is your guide, he is your messenger. He is your grand teacher, he is your prophets. But your faith is not in him, your faith isn't a law.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will be subjected to many of the normal trials and tests and occurrences of life, including possibly natural death, or even being slain in battle.
But if that happens, if a mother or if he dies, or if he is killed, what will you do when you flip when you turn on your heels?
So that was a lesson for this? How about have the alarm rang? And who understood this lesson? no one understood it better than I could have said vehicle of the law, and the prophets of the law it was passed away. How about the alarm who were greatly distressed? Undoubtedly, and even see the number of the alarm and was standing in the machine?
threatening the congregation saying Whoever dares to say that the prophets has left this world
I shall strike his head I shall kill him. I shall make an example of him
and he he refused to accept he refused to allow anyone else to accept the loved one Okay.
And then having visited the province of the law it was to them he spoke
and he all he said was man Ghana yeah Buddha Mohammed in for in the Mohammed and Padma dominicana Yabba de la la jolla.
Whoever used to worship Muhammad the know that Mohammed has died. So Allah it send them and whoever worships Allah then know that Allah is alive, everlasting. And then he recited this verse of the Quran, when he recited this verse,
some of this harbottle the Allahu said it was, of course, the verse has been revealed. It was as though we never knew the verse before.
And they've they regain their composure. So by explaining all of this, what I'm trying to say is that Alas, Hannah who were there for our test, anything he introduces into this world, even though it may be his it may, of course, everything is his, but it belongs to him. It's attributed to him, align shows that it is placed in the world, subject to the laws of the world.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was placed on Earth, he was subjected to the laws of the world. Of course, there were some miracles. But a miracle wouldn't be a miracle if it was an everyday occurrence. A miracle is only a miracle when momentarily
temporarily, occasionally, Allah subhanho wa Taala suspends the laws of nature and the universe and allows something shine through on occasions, but not always, otherwise it wouldn't be a miracle. So this is a case with the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala. It's only the house of Allah not because it houses anything of Allah azzawajal but rather, it's attributed to Allah subhanho wa Taala. It's an attribution of honor and esteem. And even though it's house of Allah has the vigil, when the last panel with the ad I wanted to, he allowed it to be protected miraculously. But apart from those few punctuated occasions, in the normal timeline of earthly existence, apart from those few punctuated
occasions, the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala, the prophets of Allah had even said, being on Earth was subjected to the laws of the earth. And therefore, the faith of the believers is not in the bricks and the mortar. It's not in the building. It's not even in a person. And it's not even in the Messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Rather, it's a loss of a job.
having explained that, the garba during the time of the crash,
it suffered damage, because
there was a fine
a lady was trying to sense the garba, meaning burn fragrance and incense in the gather. And unfortunately, as a result, there,
there was a fire and the fire consumed much of the gamma so it was damaged. So the orange decided to re rebuild the gap.
And even though they were pagans,
they came together collectively, the different clans have the courage, and they agreed that we will only build a garba with our halaal money.
unfortunately, they never had much halon.
So their funds fell short.
As a result of which they had to literally cut corners. When it came to building the Ganga. They cut out two corners.
I'll go back to that in a moment, but they rebuilt the Ganga and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was 35 years of age in muckety muck around and this is five years before the revelation of the Quran. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself participated in the construction of the gamma.
When the gamma was complete,
was the time for them to place the unhedged on us with the Blackstone. What is the Blackstone?
This is in the eastern corner of the Gambia, if you imagine the garba I'm sure everyone has seen pictures and many of us have been there last panel with Allah take us there regularly. In fact, one of the
well, it's not the name of the Gada. One of the descriptions of the garba is mythos.
What's the meaning of mythos?
What is the journal beta methodical in NASA what
And recall when we made the house say the house of Allah mythos.
methodic means a place of oft Ritter. What does that mean? That means anyone who goes to the house of a last panel who sees it, experiences it, and then returns home. He may return home, but he he or she leaves a part of their heart
so that they are forever drawn to it.
And they want to go back.
And that's the meaning of mythos. People go again and again and again. So that's a meaning of mythos.
But indeed, our hearts are attached to the house of a last panel with data. And in fact, this is one of the the hours of season at Brahim alayhis salaam, what was his
part of his the hours that will
cause the hearts of the people to incline and to flutter in love to the people of Macau.
So we there is again, a natural love for Makkah,
and of course from Edina, but the house of the last parameter with the ad is such that it draws people again and again.
One never tires of the house of Allah, just as one does not tire of the poor.
One doesn't tie of reciting the column of the last
one doesn't tire of visiting the house of the last which despite its simplicity.
what is the sweat
and as I said, if we picture the camera again, just a cube with four corners, so it's not exact, but approximately the four corners are in the four directions of the compass. So one of the corners is eastwards, slightly South East east, but it's Eastlands. One of the corners is
northeast, north northeast, and one of them is Northwest West and the other one is Southern. Now, all four of these corners have a name so the eastern corner is a hedgerow as with the Blackstone, the corner of the Blackstone, the North Eastern corner is referred to as because it's in line with Iraq. So it's known as a rock milliarden meaning the Iraq the corner and then a rock national army, the Lebanon time corner torch, and then the southern one is pointing towards Yemen. The Arabs always refer to them with these names. That one's referred to as iraq non Yemeni. So all four corners originally are important. Why are they important because they are founded on the lower end of the
Himalayas. Salaam. These are the four cornerstones of the Prophet Ibrahim heydays. But the most noble part of the garden is without doubt the unhygenic Well, one of the most noble parts is the brittleness with
what's so significant about the sweat the Blackstone, it's mentioned in having created by man did me the innocent any amount of ramblings, Muslims and by others, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the 101 s word the Blackstone is from Jim.
It is from gentlemen, and it was whiter than snow.
But the sins of mankind have dark.
And in another head these leads by man, Bernard was a man this he and by others have sort of lost the love it says that the sweat, the Blackstone, and
the arm of Ibrahim alayhis, salaam.
Both of them
are precious stones from the stones of Jim.
And in order to place them on Earth, boneless Allahu Rama, Allah
obscured their lines.
If Allah allowed their light to shine, they would lighten up the east and the west. And this is actually a so he has he has an authentic heading. So the natural estimate, without doubt is virtuous. And although the rest of the garba was built from the rocks, of muckety, muck around, and even from pieces afar, the sweat
was brought down by gibreel alayhis salaam, and given to the Prophet Ibrahim and his smile was so down. In fact, it was given to his it was their experimental Islam, collected it and then gave it to his father. And he placed it there. So the sweat is without that virtual stone. And
one of the virtues of the huddle is whether it's actually mentioned in the narrations that
I'm delighted normal to be alive.
He would struggle with people
like nobody else.
And he'd go to touch the stones. Someone asked him that why, why do you attach such importance to it? So he said the touching of the stone forgives once in his sheds one since So, there are many virtues to the tangible asset of the Blackstone and even the range they regarded the whole of the gamba with great respect the healthy integrates esteem and reverence. So when it came to replacing the black stone, every single one of them wanted the honor. So being
tribal Bedouin, they built the gamma of a last panel with Allah. They agreed on everything. They did it collectively they even ensured that we will only build it with halaal income.
But when it came to the digital as well
Almost like the iron factor,
just recall something. So I'll share it. I read an article once about lawyers in America
referring to a phenomenon known as the I am factor.
And these are all divorce lawyers. So divorce lawyers have a phrase in the US. The I Am friends, what does that refer to? So the explanation is that it's what the lawyers were saying that we deal with divorces. So in the divorce, it's very strange. You've got both the
husband and the wife
seem to be divorced, sitting on opposite sides of the table. And despite all the rancor, despite all the bitterness, despite all the history, about all the reasons for their divorce, they act very responsibly,
apparently, and very dignified and very well composed, and even sits opposite one another on the table, and then negotiate and they discuss properly. And they agreed to everything. There's a bit of haggling, but eventually they agreed to everything. And they agreed to
the division of the house, the division of the wealth, custody, divided or joint custody of the children. And everything's going well, until they get down to the smaller and smaller and smaller items.
Then, when it comes down to something as small as the iron, yes, the iron to iron clothes, suddenly they start fighting. He says the ions mine, and she says the ions mind.
And that's it. They apparently didn't disagree at all, or argue about a million dollar house about the children. Yes, you can have the children, you can have the children
and everything else. But when it comes down to the iron
$10 iron, they break out into a huge fat and they can never resolve it. And it's not just one lawyer, apparently there's this there's a whole there's a common trend. So divorce lawyers in the US refer to this as the iron factor. And psychologically, all that all that happens is it's all building up in the background. And the iron is not the cause is merely the catalyst of the
built up anger, which just bubbles beneath the surface, and it takes a slightest disturbance for the volcano of rage to erupt.
and hell hath no fury. In a
normally when we in Arabic, we say we quote part of the verse Then we say,
you know, how meaningful the end of the verse or parts of the Hadith, and we say in a till the end so hell hath no fury.
So be gracious. Well, they experienced the I.
Despite all their disagreements and their rivalry, when they came to building the caravan, they all agree, and they calmly and in very composed manner, they did everything. Finally, when it came to the US with every one of them wanted the army
and they started arguing
in and around the house of Allah. And it became so serious that within a short while they all straight away they made alliances, they drew the blood, the meaning of different blood is that there were so many clans. So the one clan said we are going to fight you and the other clans are new with you, we with you. So this one we we should enjoy the honor. Yes, let's get together Let's battle with them. So they would get cups or bowls. And in the bowls, they would have the blood of a sacrificed animal. And then they would dip their fingers in the blood.
And that would signify their joint Alliance. So they wouldn't sign papers that just dip their fingers and Blitzer the Arabs used to have a phrase lumpsum ad which simply means they get their hands. So when the Arabs would say they dip their hands they meant by dipping their hands in the sacrificial blood of animals, they forged alliances to fight alongside each other against their enemy. So they did bled me they dip their hands meaning in bled and forged alliances and there was going to be
the word they were going to be raging battles. Then in order to seize the situation. Someone suggested that why don't we make the next person to who comes into the masjid the arbitrator and
Let him arbitrate and decide what should be done. So because it was spontaneous, possibly a lot of them believe fine, you know?
Who are they going to get that everyone will agreed?
So, fine, let them do it. And once they do that we won't accept them we'll find.
So they agreed nominally. And then lo and behold, the first part, they're all waiting, the first person to enter the machine and machine to her arm was none other than the last alarm it was. And this was five years before the revelation of the Holy Grail. So
because it was him, he was regarded as a solid, I mean, the truthful, the trustworthy, they all agreed, and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam had this unique ability to reconcile hearts, even differing people. This is amazing.
A judge is in a very difficult position and arbitrators and he is in a very difficult position.
Because he's on the edge of a blade. Whichever way he is inclined, or whichever way he passes judgment, he has cuts.
But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had this unique ability, whether it was a marital dispute, or whether it was a family dispute, or a wealth dispute, or even a dispute between clans, he had the unique ability to please everyone. And even if someone lost in material terms, the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam assuaged his pain by such sweet words, that those words meant more to him than anything else that he had lost.
So when it came to the sort of loss of the love it who sent him, he came with a unique, he came up with a unique plan, which satisfied everyone. He said, all the claims should come together. And he brought a large cloth, and he plays the digital thread in the center of the cloth, and he got all the clans to lift the cloth, with the federal s word in the middle, and they in that way, carried it to the corner, and then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, in the tradition of his great grandfather, Ibrahim alayhis, salaam, he took the handwritten sword with his own hands, and he placed we placed it in the corner of the camera. And in that way, not only did he enjoy the honor of
replacing the digital thread, but at the same time, he thought it a possible war amongst the Quraysh over the building of the house of a last panel with that.
So when we witness and we hear of fights in and around the masjid for the masjid, of course, it's not good, but we do have a precedent.
after the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
restoring the illegible esmad that was the time when he was rebuilt.
Then, the gabbeh will remain the same as it was till after the
hidrive Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And then indeed when the prophets and the love it was silom did Hitler and then even later, he referred to the gamba, and he faced Mecca through karma. And he said, addressing Mecca hamaca.
You are the most beloved spot on earth to Allah. And to me, you are the most beloved place on earth to and if it wasn't for the fact that your people drove me out, I would have never left. So much government a lot to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, until the Sahaba battle, the alarm rang him, and if they had any chance, they would have come back to Morocco.
Why did they stay away after the Hydra? I explained it in a number of talks such as a sincerity of intention, my commentary on the idea
of a shadow the alarm hustle refer to one of the reasons why we have never really been able to appreciate the significance of Hitler, Hitler was greatest deed. They wanted to ensure that their reward and the complete and wholesome nature of their hedra that emigration wasn't affected in any way, which meant that once they had left Makkah through macabre as part of Hydra, even though it was conquered, even though it was the most beloved spots on Earth to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and that's how about the Allah in order to keep their hedgerows intact, and how they never ever returned?
That that is remarkable. That is truly remarkable. And that was true for all of us. How about on the line?
This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never went back.
He chose to reside in Medina Tijuana, even after the conquest of Mecca, a lot happens such as the, in the 16th hidrive. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam intended to travel again for Amara, where he was prevented. And as a result, we had the Treaty of Pavia. He then did the next year, in the seventh year of Hydra, which was known as a bar. Then the next year in the eighth year of Hydra, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam
embarks on the conquest of Makkah Han on that occasion, he did Emre again from jarana. And then finally, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the 10th year of hijra, performed his farewell pilgrimage. And so in essence, Prophet sallallahu wasallam did for me.
One of them was incomplete, the umbra of davia in the year six, the ombre to cover that in the year seven, the camera along with the conquest in the year eight, and then the camera along with his hedge in the year 10. So he did one hedge and 14 rounds, this is after the Hitler before the Hydra, it was an annual occasion to do hedge. So
there's a lot to discuss about that. But I won't go into any of that detail and Pamela, because of the we are in the period of hedge and people are traveling to hedge and hedge will begin very shortly. So in as a because it's relevant, and in commemoration of that, I commented on the heavy Ebrahim alayhis salaam, and then insha Allah after Hajj after Eve, I hope to begin very long for these on the Treaty of who they be. So all the discussion about the Treaty of how they do what happened in the year six, etc. I will discuss in my commentary of it after the after even shot. So
but apart from that, one thing that did happen, is after the conquest of Makkah,
shuttle de la asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about the health.
Now, as I said, I'll go back to the construction of the gamma, Ibrahim alayhis salaam, when he built the gamma. He built it in a certain way. And it remained like that, despite its renovation, etc, and reconstruction, it remained in that form all the way till the 35th year of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his life. Now, in that year, when the gamma was burnt,
the UN race rebuilt it, they insisted that it can only be built from the headline income, but the headline income was very it was minimal. As a result of which they actually did cut corners, and have they cut corners.
The caravan was rectangular, rather than a pure square cube. So being rectangular, the
to the walls were much longer, but the range because of their shortfall in the funds, what they decided to do is only build part of it. And the wall this half, and the one section that remained that the garba. They marked it
with a semi list. Well, they marked it with a semi circular wall. And that's what we see till today. That is known as the help team. And they used to call it the help team as well. And there are many meanings of helping him. One of the meanings of a team which is linguistically correct, is for the among the students of Arabic is for each
Mikasa sorry, exhale, which means broke.
So because that section is broken off from the garba, it's removed from the garba. It was called the healthy
so they regarded it as being
part of the Canada because of the shortfall in funds. They left it out and they didn't build it.
Another change was that the bridge in the 35th year of hedgerows, one of the things they did was that prior to that
what they did is that they raised the door of the Garda
about two meters just over two meters and in doing so and there was only one door so in doing so they controlled entry into the gamma they only allowed who they want and whoever they wanted to prevent they would prevent. So that was another thing rated.
So on a shadow the alarm her she asked the province of the law it was seldom Yasuda law is the theme part of the
Not so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said it is part of the gamma.
Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to her
that if it wasn't for the fact that your people
mean the bridge
if the array if it wasn't for the fact that the arrays have just recently embraced many of them,
I would rebuild the gap on the foundations on the structure of the Prophet Ibrahim release.
So what did he mean by not re if it wasn't for the fact that your people have only recently embraced, what that meant is that this was after the conquest of Mecca, when the final remaining groups in Macedonia Karima embraced Islam.
But after all, they were human beings. So if not too long after that embracing Islam, they were still coming to terms with the defeat their defeat, with a conquest of Makkah with the loss of their old faith, with this new religion. There were so many changes of pace. Now, if all of a sudden the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, took
and began dismantling the greatest thing that even they held in their pagan years, which is the garba that may have been too much for them absolutely unbearable, and it would have affected them negatively.
This had he had eatable Hardy and many others and many years ago in my commentary of ohare I explained this, what the hell are these shows? So just because something is wrong,
one, one can't just barge and charge into any situation without consideration of the timing, the effect the people, the circumstances,
one has to be judicious. One has to be cautious. One has to exercise discretion.
In another Hadeeth above
or below one again, Mr. mojari and others relate us abora hora de la hora. He had the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say that whoever says La la la la, he shall enter Jin.
So the Allah said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Yasuda Allah, should I not give the people the glad tidings of this message? that whoever says La ilaha illAllah
he will enter
the prophets of the love it was some sort of course. So it's a long had even just shortening it a walk, but I gotta hold the alarm and went out and began announcing in the streets. Whoever says La ilaha illa Allah shall enter Jenna. So you may not want to be part of the alarm. The alarm? So what are you saying? Whoever says LA, Lucha intergender
so it will raise the alarm said Whoever says that, you know, Marshall antigen or the alarm? I'm funtom in the chest. So when he thumped him in the chest armor, the alarm and being
the alarm being a warrior. He said, I fell down on my posterior.
So he said, I will complain of you to the messenger. So I'm out of the alarm being out of the alarm and he said he'll come I'll take you myself. So he dragged him to the Prophet Scylla highly.
sought after the Allah answer the art of sword Allah I was only telling the people what you told me to tell them that whoever says that martial intergender almost thumped me. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Why did you hit him? out of the alarm city out of sort of life. He goes around telling everybody whoever says La ilaha illAllah shall enter Jimena.
Then people will rely only on the Shahada thing. Only on this statements people begin to rely
and they won't do any good deeds, because the force with which he was repeating it.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam then said yes abora don't tell people this. So the reason for explaining mentioning this Howdy. What greater truth could there be than the fact that whoever says that, you know he loves martial antigen?
What greater truth could there be? What greater obligation could there be than to rebuild the house of Allah as it should have been rebuilt, instead of leaving it in the building and in the structure and in the form built by the pagans of origin
In their paganism, what greater truths could there be the least there are many. But look how great these two two truths are. And yet the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was judicious, he was cautious. He was mindful. He was considerate of the people of the timing of the circumstances of the impact the effect the repercussions.
Today is a great lesson in that for us. Just because something is Hello, something is
sooner or something is important or something is up.
We don't barge in charge into any situation, shouting, it's the truth. It's how I
look at these examples of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
So he said to me in shadow, the alarm if it wasn't for the fact that your people meaning the brush had only recently embraced Islam, if it wasn't for that fear, that I they will be deeply affected? And it may unsettle them. Then what I would do, I would rebuild the Kaaba, according to the foundations and the structure of Ibrahim alayhis salam, but he didn't.
So because of that fear, he left it. So how was it left?
What did he want to do? He explained to me what we need to shadow the alarm. And what I will do, what I would like to do is,
therefore, rebuild it on the foundations of Ibrahim alayhis salaam. That means remove the whole thing and rebuild over the broken area. And then not only that, and therefore restore all four core corners. The two broken corners restored them one to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said I would lower the door to ground level so people can enter and I build another door. So people could accent
but he chose not to do it. And then he departed from this world with the Garda being in the same state as it was built in the third fifth year of his life with some emissions. Then Unfortunately, it remained the same sorry, it remains not unfortunately with that just what happened later it remained the same throughout the time I'll see you then Abu Bakr Oh, man, I really love it. And while we should not be Sofia de la, then in the time of yours, Eden Wailea, and thereafter
I'm delighted to be here of the Allahu Akbar, the famous companion, daughter, the son of smiling to me because to do and
I'm delighted resurveyed of the alarm.
What he did, is that he along with many others in the whole of the Islamic realm, they rebelled against yours either not be Sofia has either been more Aurelia, the son of Maria, and they refuse to pay homage to him or recognize them as a leader of the Muslims. So they refused. So I'm delighted as of April the Allahu I'm in a way declared his own filler
and his own rule in muckety muck
in part in Medina, others joined him not only in Medina and Mecca, but in in different parts of the Arabian Peninsula, and even in Iraq, but not in Shang, that where there was the army, a stronghold.
Unfortunately, this is the part of the tragic history of Muslims, like all human beings, in a conflict. So what happened is easy to be so easy the memorial we dispatched an army that attacked Medina and then marched to Makkah, this was in the 63rd year of Hitler. And there what they did is that they actually laid siege to the city of Makkah. With the Sahaba of the Allahu Abdullah him surveyed under his leadership, others in macabre macabre
and they attacked the city. They actually sets up manga, mountains, and catapults. And they began bombarding the city with stones, large boulders, and fire arrows, as a result of which the garbage was actually bombarded and catapulted by Muslims themselves. And this was while some of the Sahaba of the alarm were alive.
I'm delighted as the beta of the alarm.
And then when he died,
the army was recalled to Damascus. So they broke camp. They lifted the siege and they left so I'm delighted debate and the others when asked
In mocha, mocha Rama, but because the GABA was damaged severely again by by fire, just like it was damaged by fire in the third fifth year of the profits of the love Island Muslims live. So I'm delighted reservado the alarm decided to it was a choice of either repairing the garbage or rebuilding it. So he decided to rebuild it because he was severely damaged. He, he felt and others he actually consulted the others. And they felt that it would be too risky to simply repair but they have to dismantle it and then we constructed so they reconstructed the gabbeh now Abdullah he was available the alarm I'm having heard the heavy from his Auntie, meaning shadow the alarm about the
Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his wish to rebuild the garba according to the structure and foundations of Ibrahim alayhis salaam. What he did is that he decided that since we are going to rebuild the garba, we shall fulfill the wish of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he rebuilt the garba. How, according to the wishes of the messenger sallallahu sallam, so he wasn't just square, but rectangular. all four corners were now on their original foundations, all four corners. And not only that, but the doors were lowered, or there was there were two doors built and both ground level people could enter and exit. And the garba remained like that for approximately 11
years. As long as Angela was obeyed, the alarm was present and maca. And he actually ruled Makkah for approximately 11 years approximately, as well as other parts of Arabia, then
America number one
sorry moronic, nom de Malik and others. That means basically, they sent a judge of the use of that tyrant
originally from life, and he came and he laid siege to the city of Makkah with a huge army. Again, the Romanians were attacking the Sahaba of the law.
And again, the sets of manga nails and catapults, and they began bombarding the garba. And unfortunately, on this occasion, many of the people were massacred, including Abdullah who was available the alarm and they even hung him.
And his his mother, a smile The Allahu sanghar, the daughter of Abu Bakar, the,
the daughter of abubaker said the
the eldest sister when the shuttle the alarm, that Anita have been the one who
the lady of two sashes who helped the messenger to love it was eliminated and who did so much for Islam and the Muslims. She had to actually go.
And at such an old age, because she survived for very, very long. She outlived her younger sister, and shall be allowing her, she had to go and actually bring down the body of our own son.
Abdullah was debate of the law.
So it was tragic.
Now when they retook the city, the Armenians and judge, he wrote to the omiya ruler and informed him that I'm delighted resurveyed has changed the gather to what he wants from the time of the poor age. So the maids instructed him that you demolish it and rebuild it according to the time of the as it was before because they didn't want the gather to be as reliable as availability. So they actually demolished it, or parts of it, and they reconstructed it to exactly as it was during the time of the ER Ah, so, parts of the gamba was removed, and it was left as a broken team. The two doors were removed, and only one was kept. Only one was retained, but it was raised again so that only those
who are allowed to enter could enter.
And they did that almost out of spite wonder one suggestion is that they didn't know that. But that seems like a far fetched explanation. The other is that they did it out of spite because they didn't want it. According to the construction of Abdullah lighteners debate. When the Romanians lost power, approximately 100 years later, approximately, and the bastards came into power over their rivals.
And the above acids were the children of bundler and bass. Well, they were a bastard children of Ella bass.
And the media
they were the children of
the son of chimps. So, these are all from
the family of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. So, the whole of the ambassade Empire, and the whole of the omiya Empire
was ruled by two families, ultimately from one clan, to clans, but ultimately from one tribe, the whole range and in fact from one clan that one will have them enough. So anyway, so the when the buses came to power,
one of the busted emperors in his heyday he decided that look, we should
rebuild the garba according to how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wanted it. So the some of the Allah may Allah have mercy on them, gave them some beautiful advanced coatings wonder he the man man, it gave this advice according to another generation, your man will use of Ashima Allah gave this advice. And quite possibly, both of them may have advised the Abbas's. And what they said is that do not do it. Because you do not want to set a precedent, whereby every new ruler that comes along, wishes to plant and imprint his mark on the Gerber and merely because he doesn't want to keep the garbage according to the construction and the structure of the previous ruler. That garbage will
become a plaything in the hands of rulers, kings and emperors. So leave it as it is.
So they left
and the garba has then of course, it was rebuilt in the 17th century because it was again, damage it was built by one of the Ottoman emperors who was actually called monarch Han. But there you go. So after
after the crash, it was built by Abdullah who was obeyed on the Allaha. And after I'm delighted was the bay was built by a judge of the use of
for the Romanians, and after her judgment, the use of no one.
Of course, it was repaired on occasions, but as a complete, reconstruction complete, that only took place in the 17th year
sorry, set not 17 here and Hitler 17th century. So
that was at the time of the Ottomans. It was damaged because of floods and other things. So again, it wasn't possible to repair it. So they reconstructed the garbage. But they did it exactly as it was from the time of judgment, the use of and as it was from the time of the prophets of the law. It was and the name of the Ottoman was, what was his name was some bum or I think the surname is harm in any case. So the structure of the gamba as we see now, the construction
is from the time of the 17th century, this is Sorbonne rods, the Ottoman construction, but the layout, the structure
and the layout, and the form is as exactly as it was at the time of the prophets of Allah it was. So again, if someone questions well,
if this is the building of the orange, and not the building of Ibrahim alayhis salam.
And Allah speaks about the construction of Ibrahim alayhis salaam.
And we should be doing hedge to the house built by Ibrahim alayhis salam on his foundations, and the theme is missing from the garba. And the door should be lowered. And it should be two doors just as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam wished so why don't we do it exactly as all Mr. Said, and simple answer is, if it was good enough for us all lots of love it was it's good enough for us.
