Episode Notes

The Kaabah and Hajj

Islam is established on 5 foundations – Shahadah, Establish prayer, Pay Zakaah, Fast in Ramadan and to perform Hajj if you have the means.

Hajj is an important foundation of Deen and a beautiful experience.

“The first house to be established for worship was Bakkah (Makkah)”
Makkah has more than one name because it is a significant place. Makkah in a rough area surrounded by ‘black mountains’. Allah chose Makkah to establish the site of meeting for hujaaj. A place where all Muslims unite under the banner of Islam to worship Allah. The pilgrims – the guests of Allah.

When looking at the Kaaba, one should look at it with the heart, because there is something that will capture you, you become connected to Allah with your heart.

The impossible happens at Hajj, the bringing together at hajj different people from different backgrounds, countries, ethnicities and cultures doing one thing. Striving to please Allah by fulfilling the pillar of Hajj and pleasing Allah. A miracle from Allah, a proof of the truth of Islam as the religion and way of life for the people.
“And it is him that brought their hearts together, if you (Muhammad) were to spend all the wealth of this world to bring the hearts together you will never succeed, Allah is the one who has succeeded.”

“This day I have perfected your religion for you…” Islam is the bounty of Allah upon you. How many of us realize this gift?

00:03:05--> 00:03:06

So stay tuned. For

00:03:08--> 00:03:14

all those who believe fee Allah Fie Allah the way you should be feed and do not die and listen, the state of Islam,

00:03:15--> 00:03:17

my brothers in Islam,

00:03:19--> 00:03:22

one of the greatest miracles that take place.

00:03:24--> 00:04:12

One of the greatest miracles that we experience every single year is the miracle of house, which is the fifth pillar of Islam as the problem Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, Guney Islam Allah house, Islam is founded and established on four foundations, Shahada to Allah ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah, to testify that is the record except Allah, and that Muhammad is the Prophet and the Messenger of Allah, what you call masala and to establish the prayers, when he turns zeca. And to praise a cat was someone Ramadan, and to pass the month of Ramadan 190 minutes to tie the Sevilla

00:04:13--> 00:04:15

and to perform

00:04:16--> 00:04:25

and together has to have the ability to get has so has is the fifth pillar of Islam.

00:04:27--> 00:04:34

And it is one of the most important foundations from the other foundations of the problem. Mohammed Salah Halima Selim has mentioned

00:04:36--> 00:04:48

I believe, last week, and just few days ago, has had ended and a number of the brothers here in Australia and around the world attendance has deceived, including myself.

00:04:49--> 00:04:55

I would like to share the beautiful experiences they experienced and you see and witness with your analytics did

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

not only a beautiful experience, but a miracle.

00:05:00--> 00:05:13

no other place around the world can take place or can exist beside a has in Mecca. We see people from all around the world coming to that place.

00:05:15--> 00:05:18

A city that's 1000s of years old.

00:05:19--> 00:05:43

Which our last panel Allah says, Allah Allah Karim, in our baynton orderliness Allah Allah de Baca, the first house to be established, and the first mosque, a place of worship to be established for people. It was that place in Becca. And Becca is another name for maccha. America has different sub names has more than one name.

00:05:45--> 00:05:49

And the reason Mecca has more than one rat name is to magnify

00:05:50--> 00:06:04

and not only magnify, but to give us the significance of the place. So it's called Makkah called Becca omotola Beatty live Hello, and many other names our last panel Tyler mentioned in the Quran Allah Karim.

00:06:06--> 00:06:50

So the first house of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the first was to be established on Earth. It was the Beatty line how long in Mecca, which is the Kaaba. And in a famous Hadith, that the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was also a messenger of Allah, which has the last panel to Allah was the first house to be established on Earth. So the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, it is the basis of the law. It is the house of alliances or just a mecca. And then this companion asks again and he says or messenger of Allah, then which house comes after him. So the first house is the Kaaba in Mecca, then what what is what is the next house or the house that

00:06:50--> 00:07:04

was established after it? So the problem Mohammed sobre, LA, he was telling me he says, Baitullah his madness, which is the one in Jerusalem that will ask Allah subhanaw taala to freed up from the Torah hands of the Israelis and designers from his dream.

00:07:06--> 00:07:31

And then the brothers that have been on the alarm, Thailand will ask the question, what's, what's the duration between those two houses? What's the duration, the period of time of the establishment of the Kaaba in Mecca, and basically lay all the mystery of the Luxor in Jerusalem? So the problem with haematological Selim, he says 40 years. So the duration between the Kaaba and mercy The answer is 40.

00:07:33--> 00:08:07

And Allah Subhana Allah Allah commanded Ibrahim to establish that house in the middle of nowhere in the middle of that so deep and so rough, it's not your typical value. Then you find greenery all around beautiful mountains and flowing rivers. But it's a tough rough area. So the surrounded by black mountains as they describe them to be and very hard to live in. But lots of hands on all places that you have created.

00:08:08--> 00:08:21

And and all the other beautiful places that Allah subhanaw taala has created around the world, Allah, tala chose Mecca to be the place that many people from around the world millions of people from around the world flocked to.

00:08:23--> 00:08:27

And just last week, he had over 2 million pilgrims.

00:08:28--> 00:08:40

2 million Hajji he came from all around the world, from all the different parts of the world, from all different countries and cities around the world countries that you've probably never heard of.

00:08:41--> 00:09:08

Though Oh, traveled further distances, including your own brothers and sisters from Australia, go into that place. For one reason, only one reason to fulfill the fifth foundation and villa in Islam. Now lots of hydro dial and command the Napoleonic era in 1400 years ago, and to respond to the call of Abraham 1000s of years ago.

00:09:09--> 00:09:41

And they you find a great miracle when you look around towards your right or left in front of you behind you. And everywhere you look around, you find that amazing miracle how Allah subhanho wa Taala brings all these people from all around the world to be united under one banner. And there is the banner of Islam, the banner of La ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah and all of them are doing the same ritual that their beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has taught them and illustrated to them.

00:09:42--> 00:09:46

And so whenever you look around, so diverse

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

people from different cultures, different nationalities, different countries, different languages, different ethnicity and you look around

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

panela what brings these people from all around the world.

00:10:04--> 00:10:08

And it is exactly the Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and he says

00:10:09--> 00:10:23

that the pilgrims are the guests of Allah. Allah had invited them so they responded to Allah subhanaw taala his invitation and cool in return the as a loss of loss panatela accepted this application

00:10:24--> 00:10:29

over 2 million pilgrim. And by the way, that's a small number this year,

00:10:30--> 00:11:15

from all around the world, are all united together, worshiping one gold facing one camera, one camera and doing the same actions, a lot of the problem happens on the law, they will seldom talk them in front doing the same exact actions. When it's time to get to me Not everyone gets to me, not everyone's asleep. I mean, no one is talking to get off, everyone's doing it off. I want to start to be our alpha, alpha. And you look out and you see some Halloween amazing miracle. What brought these people what brought them together? What made them say united, they're not even all look alike. All of them worrying that what government

00:11:16--> 00:11:22

and all of them raising their hands to Allah subhanho wa Taala weeping and crying to Allah and so

00:11:23--> 00:11:30

that within itself, it's a miracle and evidence that this religion is the deen of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:11:32--> 00:11:42

This religion is the religion of alliances origin for all these people from all around the world, from all walks of life, to be united together at one place,

00:11:43--> 00:11:54

in one front, worshipping, well known and all doing the same action. That's not something that can come coincidently, that's not something that can come to slaughter.

00:11:55--> 00:12:31

With all these great civilizations that you see around, you know, all these countries that you see on the superpowers they have. None of these countries can put something like this together in something impossible to bring people from different backgrounds, different cultures, nationalities, ethnicities, to bring them all together at one place. And for all of them to do the same action, like everyone else, without clashing with one another. Without Same for it. I'll be gone for over 15 years.

00:12:32--> 00:12:57

And I've never seen like a real fight in front of me. Well, you've got something that takes place at a footy game. Our process tells us someone else and you're talking about the same people from the same background from the same subject, maybe supporting the same team. And that moment that someone says someone else you find the big punch up takes place. But somehow this is a miracle they don't see why. Because this is looked after my last panel darlin.

00:12:58--> 00:13:25

All these people are coming from different backgrounds, and coming from different countries and states and different corners of the world. For the sake of Allah azza wa jal, there's no doubt that this event is looked after. But last panel, Tyler, and his name tell to Allah subhanaw taala his blessing is there and is named after. So john is really boasting about his servants on a da vida as the problem.

00:13:27--> 00:13:36

He says in the houses on the day of Allah, Allah subhanaw taala gathers the angels. On the last panel, Tyler boasts to the angels about his servants.

00:13:38--> 00:13:48

One and what the product is to come close because it's already out there. So there's a lot of gaps if we could cover those gaps and shut alone we'll have more room for the people outside to fit into circle.

00:13:51--> 00:14:03

So when you see that same and this miracle with your eyes, and you feel it with your own hands, and the experiences with the answers halala this is not that it's a miracle, a miracle from a lie so much.

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

And not only that, to me, it's just proofs. It gives me the evidence that this Deen is the deen of Allah subhanaw taala Alonzo church people

00:14:15--> 00:14:17

during the season,

00:14:18--> 00:14:26

while the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself is before we get out his first and last house, which is not as hostile

00:14:27--> 00:14:27

and has

00:14:29--> 00:14:34

Allah subhanho wa Taala reveals to the problem Hamas Allah Allah, Allah.

00:14:36--> 00:14:59

Allah Allah Allah wa sallam is given with 1000s of his companions that some durations exceed over 124,000 companion. Now Prophet Mohammed Salah Allah wa sallam is addressing his companions and then Allah subhana wa tada reveals this amazing verse to Muhammad Ali Salatu was Salam and to this oma in which allows the origin says and the automatic mode

00:15:00--> 00:15:02

To lacantina come to Allah condemn anti

00:15:03--> 00:15:14

Islam Edina. Today I've completed my religion upon you perfected my bounty upon you. I know I haven't accepted Islam as your religion

00:15:15--> 00:15:21

and I have accepted Islam as your religion or anti religion. One of the Jews during the time of

00:15:22--> 00:15:23

the alarm,

00:15:24--> 00:15:53

approached Armand and said to him, there is a verse that you have in your holy book in your Koran. If this verse was revealed to us, us Jews would have taken that day and that moment and that place, that this verse was revealed in an ad would have taken as a day of celebration and festivity. So, he says, I know when that verse was revealed, and when it was revealed, it was revealed that

00:15:55--> 00:16:41

he was sending him is addressing the companions, and it was revealed during the time of alpha in the days of has aliaga Akmal to lacantina co wattman Tada calamity wall due to lack of minister Medina, today I completed my religion upon you perfected my bounty upon you, and what religion is Allah subhanaw taala referring to Allah is referring to Islam. What are they to let go minister Medina, and I accepted Islam as your religion. But there's something about this verse, we're alive so Jenny says, I've completed my religion upon you and that is the Allah had perfected my bounty and blessings upon you. What bounty and blessing is Allah subhanaw taala referring to Allah is also a

00:16:41--> 00:16:42

very slum.

00:16:43--> 00:17:13

Islam is that great bounty of a loss of power upon you. It's that great grace of Allah subhanaw taala upon you. It's that great gift of a last parallel dialogue upon us all. Islam is our religion and Islam is our gift from Allah azza wa jal. So it is not only a religion to me, it's there is a religion and a great blessing of a great gift. And your Mac Mottola container comm today I can play my religion upon you. What?

00:17:15--> 00:17:36

I have perfected my bounty upon you, and this bounty is Islam. How many of us take Islam as a bounty? How many of us take Islam as a gift? How many of us take Islam as a blessing? Have you always take Islam as a grace and the best of gift I have in my life?

00:17:37--> 00:17:38

What?

00:17:39--> 00:17:48

What are the two local minister Medina and I accepted Islam as your religion and the religion and no religion except Islam.

00:17:49--> 00:17:57

The verse was revealed during the days of has during the day of alpha, and it was also revealed out of

00:17:58--> 00:17:58

the habit of the

00:18:00--> 00:18:36

present. And the verse continues to be resolved to this day until the day of gentlemen. But we need to understand the meaning behind that verse. Acknowledged to Allah subhanho wa Taala is alluding to what a lot of soldier is referring to that Islam is your religion, and it is your gift, and the best present, and the best blessings, and it's your way of life and the best way of life and early way of life. And it's your way of success. And it's a way of happiness, and it's a way of achievement and everything for Islam, you will get a three step

00:18:37--> 00:19:00

You want to achieve follow Islam, whatever you want to follow Islam and yo McMahon to lacantina come today is the day that I complete my religion upon you. What mentor Aleikum nirma to Allah perfect my built upon you what I'll do to knock on Islam and then on accepted Islam as your religion

00:19:02--> 00:19:19

as accepted Islam as your religion. You remember that verse, alpha and alpha on the day of alpha? Will Allah subhanho wa Taala completed Islam on Allah soldier perfect this bounty upon us.

00:19:21--> 00:19:45

I grant miracle my brother in Islam, that you see the next debate to learn how long the Kaaba the simple helps that Allah subhana wa tada came up commanded employees 1000s of years ago to establish now What did they below him establishing with simple rocks over each other, learned over each other? A simple house,

00:19:46--> 00:19:48

rectangle house at that time,

00:19:49--> 00:19:58

sir simple, nothing amazing about that house that you see from the outside except when you look at it with your heart

00:19:59--> 00:19:59

and that moment

00:20:00--> 00:20:10

You see the cover, even though there is nothing so amazing or spectacular about the building or the structure of the garba, but there's something that captures you.

00:20:11--> 00:20:28

There's something that draws you in the moment that you gaze at the camera and you look at the cover, something that just grabs you, and you no longer see with your eyes anymore. As if you could see with your heart, and your sight connected to the loss of held on to it with your heart.

00:20:29--> 00:20:40

This is the house of a law someone that will see not with our eyes, but with our hands. And then you start knowing that off, and 1000s of people from all around the world,

00:20:41--> 00:20:43

from different backgrounds and cultures,

00:20:44--> 00:21:01

different ethnicities, languages, all doing the same action, and all doing the test, we're all glorifying the last panel taala or just going around the Kaaba in one circle, what brings these people in line?

00:21:03--> 00:21:30

What brings these people in mind that Iran is just together, it's that great miracle of a loss of power, but veteran of this religion, and that completion of this religion upon these people that are all together, worshipping Allah and so utterly surrendering to one world. Well, law, you look towards your right and left, you just could see a miracle. Regardless of the people that you see towards your right or left, it's that great miracle that Allah subhanho wa Taala may take place to.

00:21:31--> 00:22:21

And then when it's time for so long, another great miracle that you see with your own eyes, over 234, sometimes even 5 million people standing in straight lines, facing one pillar, the Kaaba, and led by one email. And within less than 20 seconds of the karma of God or the center of karma to song, you find everyone standing and striding up the lines, that at this current moment, the superpower countries can even get millions of people of the same people of the same culture to stand in straight lines, not less than 10 hours, but you found that in less than 10 seconds, everyone just standing there. So Palawan cellml organized religion. Even though this current moment, you find the

00:22:21--> 00:22:27

people of this religion are the most disorganized people, but they belong to a very well organized religion.

00:22:29--> 00:23:07

So Pamela, within 20 seconds of the corner of the akarma you find millions of people from different backgrounds, because of the all come from the same background you would say these people have the same education. These people have the same culture these people have the same understanding the understand there is something called a straight line and something called facing towards this place. But you're talking about cultures that you've probably never heard of. And you'll continue never to hear of you talking about ethnicities they've never experienced you talking about the black and white. He talking about the Asian and the African he talking about the European and he talking about

00:23:07--> 00:23:25

the Australian American he talking about people from all around the world. What brings all these people together? What makes these people stand the straight lines? What makes them stand in straight lines? What makes these people stand shoulder to shoulder on foot to foot? What makes these people face What?

00:23:27--> 00:23:42

What makes these people do the same gestures and movements? What makes these people follow the same? Avraham? What makes these people when a man says hello? Hello, everyone raises their hands alone. And then when he says is set up on a coma

00:23:45--> 00:24:09

everyone just gives them a lot of work, but that's a miracle within itself. What brought all these people together? what you notice is all these people can it be possible anything besides Easter can unite them? Can it be possible anything besides the Quran can unite them? Can it be possible anything besides the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam Can you love them? What Allah

00:24:11--> 00:24:24

says, and it is him. It is him the probe the hearts together. Allah zoologia is him, the one that brought the hearts together. Now I'm out of the Jamia

00:24:25--> 00:24:41

lupien Allah Allah by now, if you Mohamad, the greatest creation of Allah stepped foot on the face of this earth, if you were to spend all the work of the soul to try and bring the hearts together, you never succeed, but Allah is the one that succeeded.

00:24:43--> 00:24:56

And Allah is the one that did bring their hearts together. Allah is the one that brought the house together. So Panama Allah is the one that broke the hearts of the pilgrims and the projects together.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

Otherwise the one and only one

00:25:00--> 00:25:29

ambala can bring this diversity of people from different backgrounds and ethnicities and countries and states and cultures. It is Allah, Allah, Allah that can bring them all together to be united at one front tbg is to be united, at what price to be united towards one cable TV, you know that to worship in the last panel of a lot, a last panel time will lie, that's a miracle.

00:25:30--> 00:26:18

Maybe sometimes there's meanings within see them when we go there because because we're overwhelmed with everything else and we're so tired with everything else, or we're distracted with other things. But these are the sort of miracles that you see with your eyes. You see a miracle of a last panel to Allah on earth. You see the miracle of Allah subhanaw taala in Mecca, you see the miracle of Allah, Allah from you see the miracle of Allah subhanaw taala has you see that a miracle? Then I'm the one that miracle because no country, no state, no kingdom, at this current place, or at this current moment, with all the technology with all the advancement can put together, or organize or illustrate

00:26:19--> 00:26:26

No way. It's the great miracle of has that we see during the days of has that lost power brings us together.

00:26:27--> 00:26:55

And the amazing part of it is when our last panel tada calls upon His servants on the day of alpha or alpha that had forgiven you. Today is the day that I forgive you and have mercy upon you. My last panel to Allah forgive every single has performed has deceived Milan soldier forgive every single Muslim molars or give us the ability to experience this great experience. I mean, open it up

00:26:59--> 00:27:12

and come to the ally Hampton Cathedral and come on our show Olivia Eman Shakur, well certainly was certainly more vertical than the Wii U. or Chateau La ilaha illallah wa, who

00:27:14--> 00:27:14

was

00:27:20--> 00:27:24

on price due to our last panel Tada. And please pay upon Mohamed Salah lavon he was alone,

00:27:25--> 00:27:30

brothers in Islam, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:27:31--> 00:27:32

He says

00:27:33--> 00:27:35

those who have the ability to perform

00:27:36--> 00:27:51

and did not perform has when they had the ability. And when we talk about the ability, we're talking about financial ability, physical ability, so whole toys, and security ability that you have the ability to travel.

00:27:52--> 00:28:02

And the reason Allah Holly was having says, Whoever has the ability to perform has and they do not perform has, then they die, a bit of ignorance.

00:28:03--> 00:28:18

They die a death of ignorance has is an obligation upon us all, especially those who reached the age of puberty. And that have those abilities that we mentioned before. financial ability, physical ability, and security ability.

00:28:20--> 00:28:32

You need to intend on this to have in your heart or intent in your heart that you want to perform has. You can't just live your day to day life and ignore that there is an obligation upon you that you need to go perform.

00:28:34--> 00:29:08

And it's something that you need to start with an intention. It's not just going to happen, suddenly, we're tomorrow, okay? 100. Tomorrow, I'm going to book in and get a house. Everything starts with an intention. And if you die with that intention, and you try, and he did not perform has a lot of penalties that are forgiving, but you must have the intention in your heart that I want to perform has, I intend to form hands. And if you didn't perform hands, you need to put the intention in your heart. You need to intend the hour to perform as as soon as I can. The moment Allah subhanaw taala allows me to

00:29:10--> 00:29:26

but some of us say, you know, I'm still young, of still to need to finish off this finish of the pay of my house, get married, married, have more kids, and so on and so on and so on. That's exactly the ignorance on the problem of homeless ourselves referring to

00:29:27--> 00:29:32

this is an obligation of our last panel data upon me that needs to be fulfilled before anything else.

00:29:33--> 00:29:49

And for that you need to intent at least start with an intention in number larmer everything starts with an intention. So everything begins with an intention all starts with the heart of what's in the house they intend to perform has a lot of power make it easy for you. How do you expect

00:29:50--> 00:29:59

or what do you think of the last panel will open the doors of hospital you will need that even in 10th forum. You don't even want to visit the last panel, Donna's house

00:30:00--> 00:30:39

So you don't even have the intention to get to this place and you want to learn how to accept that from me. So you need to have the intention. And based on the intention, I'll give you. So whatever the intent for is what most gives you in return. Now for that my brother and Islam, I do urge you and remind you to intend to perform, even though you haven't performed it. And the last point I'm making is is for you. When I'm most proud ta sees that sincerity in your heart somehow sees that you are really serious about performing housing and visiting his place. Visiting the house of Allah subhanaw taala and Mecca, they know for a fact Allah azza wa jal will accept at least a little

00:30:39--> 00:30:43

except that intention, and then the next step, the last part are accepted together.

00:30:44--> 00:30:56

So intend for them. Remember, they are following the footsteps of Ibrahim and Hamlet on the long run, he will send them our beloved prophets and messengers, Ibrahim alayhis salam and

00:30:57--> 00:30:58

then you'll see that

00:30:59--> 00:31:01

when you visit that place,

00:31:02--> 00:31:07

except our house and takes up the house of it, we have to make a hell of room.
