Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen ob Hina sterlin. On a Sunday on Salim Allah Hartman nabin Amina Muhammad Ali Abdullah, Allah Allah He or sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira en la Medina, bad. Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar La ilaha illallah wa Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allah Hello. My dear mothers, my dear fathers, my dear brothers and sisters Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. I welcome you all to yet another short episode dealing with the matters related to hedge as well as the first 10 days of will hedger. Today is the seventh of the hedges and inshallah tomorrow, our fellow Muslim brothers and sisters who are from amongst the Hajaj will be
commencing with this sanctified journey, they will be beginning this fifth pillar of Islam in the endeavor to complete the fifth pillar of Islam, which is the pillar of hedge. Now, for purposes of tomorrow being the eighth of the ledger, and the discussion surrounding this particular session, allow me to share with you a little bit of information regarding what a pilgrim should be doing on the eighth of the ledger and a few matters, as explained to us by the orlimar regarding the eighth of the ledger. Now, the eighth of the ledger is known as yom Acharya. It is known as yom at Serbia.
Why is it called yom utter via while they deliver, they have a couple of explanations regarding the naming of this particular day. And one of the explanations is that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Sahaba and all those intending Hajj
on this particular day, they prepared wholesomely for the other days of Hajj is that they would feed the cannibal, the camels and the animals and ensure that they drink to their soul, as well as ensure that the quantities of water needed for the journey would be collected in containers and placed upon upon the animals that would be accompanying them during the Hajj. So they were actually preparing for the days of Hajj. Now obviously, today, this does not need to happen for Al Hamdulillah the sanctified places and the areas of hedge have been developed to such an extent that running water does exist and this is a great nevermind blessing from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So during that time,
they didn't have these amenities and thus had to prepare for it. So this concept of gathering water
which total MSA comes from the verb rover euro we turn we are based on that they say that this is the reason why the eighth of the ledger was called yo atheria. Some of the other lemma explained that row one euro we thought we attend comes from continuous contemplation over something. And they say that Ibrahim alayhi salam. And we know that this whole concept of Hajj goes all the way back to Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and the actions of Hajj go back to that which happened at the time of Ibrahim Alayhi Salam and indeed he was commanded to renovate the Kaaba, and he did so with his son, Allah He was Salatu was Salam. So they say that Ibrahim Alayhi Salam during the these days of hijab, he saw
this dream continuously a recurring dream and in the dream, he saw himself slaughtering his son smile and his Salah it was confusing, but it was recurring. And on the eighth of the ledger, it became a reality through contemplation. It became a reality through contemplation. So he pondered and deliberated over it and thus, it was called yom utter via the day of Serbia. And they go on to say that on the ninth of the ledger, he understood the dream, right. And that and that is why the ninth of the ledger is known as the day of arafa. Because arafa
stems from iron or alpha, and words that come from this root denote something becoming understood or something becoming
known, so he knew what was being asked from him on that particular day, which was the ninth of the hedger. And on the 10th of the ledger, he attempted to follow the command of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And that's attempted to sacrifice his mind and his solemn and the sacrifice is known as the
now because, obviously, you spill blood on that particular day and that's the 10th of the hedges known as your house. So this is the explanation of some of the dilemma regarding the reasons behind the naming of the days of hedging Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best. Now with regards to the activities of a pilgrim on this particular day. We know from the lengthy Hadith narrated by jabber Ravi Allahu Akbar, whereby he explained the Hajj of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in this hadith in Sahih Muslim, he states that on the eighth of the hedger, the Prophet sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam as well as the companions and all those who attended hedge, they made their way to Minar.
And that is why the LMS state that from the center is to assume the state of Islam.
Meaning you make the intention for hedge as well as were the clouds of hedge which is also called the harm the state that doing this, on the eighth of the ledger, and preferably before noon is the sun as this was the practice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So he stationed himself in Miller on the eighth, and he observed salat wa salam, O Allah alacer, solid, solid elicia as well as solid alpha. So he observed five of the obligatory Salawat and the jabber of the 11. And this has benefited from a hadith stipulate that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam observed the prayers that were inclusive of four units of prayer, he observed them with two units of prayer. So the
concept of kasota was applied, meaning that sort of instead of observing four units of prayer, he observed two units of prayer and the same was for us, as well as select Elisha. Now there's a difference of opinion between the dilemma should it be observed as for or should it be observed, as to some of the elements say that it should be observed as to based on the practice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and others say that it should be observed as to only for those who are travelers because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam observed it as two units of prayer because he was traveling. Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best and it is upon the program to follow the
student of knowledge or the person of Vicar or the Allium of the group that he or she is with and take guidance from them for Allah subhanho wa Taala said, Allah, Allah decree, income to letter Allah mode that asked the people of knowledge, and obviously by people of knowledge, Allah subhanho wa Taala is referring to those who are with you at that particular time. First, Vicar, if you are aware, or if you do not know. And this is a common question that comes about whereby pilgrims might be situated in Mena in close proximity. And you might have one group following the fatwa of a particular scholar and another group following the fatwa of a particular scholar, and some of the
general public become despondent and they feel that they're losing the hedge and they confused as to what to do with regards to the hedge. And is the hedge accepted, who do they follow? And in answer to that, my dear brothers, my dear sisters, you should follow the limb of your particular group for Allah subhanho wa Taala has placed your salvation in following that particular item because indeed, you're not a person of knowledge and if you were, then you would have known what to do so inshallah as long as you follow the photo of somebody reputable, inshallah obligation is complete. And Allah subhanho wa Taala is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful. So it shouldn't become a point whereby
we become despondent and start doubting our hedge, and we become so upset that it affects the day of alpha that is coming the next day, and the other activities that a pilgrim is supposed to engage in during these particular days. So this is what the prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam did on the eighth and inshallah our judge will be doing this tomorrow Bismillah hytera insha Allah in our next episode, we will discuss that which our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did after the eighth which obviously entails the day of arafah Unfortunately, our time has come to an end, everything correct mentioned is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and he is the most perfect and any mistakes from
myself and Siobhan and I see colossal panda who were tireless forgiveness has Allah who Island until we meet again Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
it man is done Maniscalco.
