Today the people that have made the intention to perform hajj, they begin the Hajj Alhamdulillah they gather now as we speak, they're getting they're preparing themselves to head to me now. And tomorrow
they'll head to our offer, where they will stand there and as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah had you out of the most important part of the Hajj would be to stand at alpha. I remind myself in you that tomorrow is one of the most rewarding times to fast as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam encouraged us to do so I encourage myself and I encourage you to do the same too fast tomorrow. But what I want to talk about today in the hood, is related to hedge but it is something that you and I also need to think about and to apply in our lives in a practical way. Those people that are hitting out for the hedge those people that have made the intention to go into
the state of alarm, they are words that they will be reciting for the next few days. Those of you that have performed Hajin Amara, you are very familiar with these words, and I might do it for you. For those of you that have not yet performed online the Hajj, may Allah subhanho wa Taala take you there. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy, and most importantly May Allah subhanho wa Taala accept it from you and reward you abundantly for it.
But for those of us even if we haven't been we've heard these words before love bake Allahumma love bake love bake Allah Sherry Kala Kala bake in the Hamza, when no matter lacquer well molk luxury khaliq these words the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam started reciting from dole halifa just outside of Medina, until the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam through the Jamaat, at on the 10th day on the day of aid, the jamala to LA Cava, he kept on repeating these words and the Muslims that were with him, they kept on saying these words. What I want to talk to you about today is what do these words mean? And how is it that we can all start applying the meaning of this title via this
proclamation? How can we start implementing it in our own lives even though we are very far away from MK and Mina and was Delhi find out offer? How can the meaning of the Tobia find its way into our hearts and into our lives? Listen to these words again. Love bake Allahumma bake? Oh Allah. Yeah, I am. I have responded to your call. I'm at your service. I'm at your service. You repeat it twice. What is this mean? Oh Allah 1000s of years ago, you told Ibrahim to make it announcement to the people that they should perform Hajj to this house, a house that was in the middle of nowhere for most people, there was nothing that grew there, and there was nothing to attract the people
there. But yet Allah subhanho wa Taala chose it to be a book I'm about aka a very, very blessed place. And Allah subhanho wa Taala calls the well of Zamzam to sprout from it. And Allah subhanho wa Taala created a people and a civilization to take care of his house and Ibrahim and his son they both the carrabba and for 1000s of years, those who believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala performing the pilgrimage and the hygiene, the aroma to displace. So as Muslims we are only continuing in this tradition and we are responding not only to the
Have Ebrahim but to the commands of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he said, Yeah, are you a nurse or her do oh people perform the Hajj, perform the pilgrimage. And now we find those millions of people are gathered there in doing what? What are they doing? They are they are answering the call of Allah subhanho wa Taala and obeying Allah and His messenger. And that is what the tell BMS mean to us and what we need to reflect on. Every time Allah subhanho wa Taala commands us in the Quran. Do you and I also do we also say love bake Allahumma bake. The mother then recites and reads and equals out five times a day. Hi yah la signer Hey, I ll fella come to the solder come
to success do we say love bake? Oh Allah Yeah, I am. I'm responding to that call. I am here to answer and to obey. I am at your service. This a bar that I'm about to engage in is more beloved to me than anything else that could keep me busy. Do you want to know my dear brothers what the meaning of Russia and fear is that meaning of Russia and fear of a loss of a hand or Thailand the heart being filled with that is it shows when you are in private and you are alone? But it also shows when you have to make a decision between Allah and the dunya or between the dunya and the Akira What do you choose? Those who judge many of them could could have taken that money they could have said I
know people in Cape Town South Africa we learn from these people they bake doughnuts every single Sunday and they say for 2030 years they put away a few ringgit every week every month and they save for years and until they have enough money they purchase you know the ticket and the accommodation and everything they need. Why? lobby kolomela bake? Oh Allah Yeah, I am in service to you. Because nothing else matters more than this love and this obedience and servitude, this surrender submission that I must and should show to you. If you think about the rest of it. Like bake Allahumma bake love bakerella Sheree Kala Kala bake Oh Allah I am you have no partners. Allah you have no rival you have
no one that can challenge you. So there is no one that is worthy of my a burdah there is no one that is worthy of this kind of response that I have made to your call and your commands more than you. No one is more deserving in Alhambra. All praise is All praise belongs to you. All praise I am here, whether it is soya or Zakah, or the fasting of the month of Ramadan, or it is the Hajj. Why am I here in Alhamdulillah, one nanometer laka Well look, these three things that I want us all to ponder about it. I want you to ponder these three things. All praise is due to Allah, there isn't another being that you know of that is deserving of all praise exclusively. And is only Allah subhana wa
Taala not our parents, not those who have given us employment, not our leaders. No one is word is worthy of unrestricted exclusive praise except Allah subhanahu wa taala and when you perform the Hajj, you make the statement. Every time you pray, you're making that same statement, Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen All praise is due to Allah What are you saying? There is no one more perfect, greater, more exalted than you are Allah, because you are the creator of the heavens and the earth, you are my Creator, you are the one who sustains me and everything in existence. So you are worthy of all of my praise, all of my love all of my servitude. All of my energy should be directed towards
you. So but Hanna what Allah what no matter every now that you and I possess, it comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he is the one who has bestowed upon is you will recall many weeks ago when we spoke about the meaning of the word Rob, and we said the word the rub of it six meanings that are allama of the Arabic language mentioned, we said that all of those six we'll talk about three, the nareesha, the Sustainer and the provider. That is Allah subhanho wa Taala. He has provided you with everything, he nurtures you and me and everything, everything that we know of everything that exists. And Allah subhanho wa Taala sustains it. For those of you that come from a science
background, when you study physics, and especially astrophysics, and you talk about how finely tuned this universe is, and you talk for those of you that come from a medical background, you look at the human body
Perfectly it has been created every nirma that we have the beating of our hearts, the sun that we enjoy, all of these things come from Allah subhanho wa Taala every now, and now Metallica. Well molk and this is the last thing that I want us to think about of these three rules. Allah subhanho wa Taala has dominion over everything. Therefore it is the law of Allah subhanho wa Taala the commands and prohibitions of a law that must be all encompassing. Everything must be subservient to that. And that's what you're saying, when you perform your Hajj. Oh Allah, I am you're recognizing my place in the cosmos. I am here recognizing my place in this world that you have created, because I know who
you are. And I now know who I am. That I am your app. And I am under your dominion and your sovereignty. Oh Allah.
lashari luxury Cadillac, and you end off your Tobia by saying that oh well. You have, you have no partners. This is the essence of though Hey, this is the call of the prophets. What did they call people to? It was to make sure that Eva, this love this fear, this hope this sila this sujood, the sadaqa everything that we do, whether it be the actions of the heart, or the actions of our limbs, they are exclusively for the one who is deserving of it because no one else deserves it deserves it, except him Subhana Allah to Allah. Allah mentioned a few meanings of the word or the word Tobia, or the Tobia. That's what I want to share with you before ending our football. So that we think deeply,
not only about the Tobia, but also about everything else that we recite. A few days ago, I was teaching my Koran lesson. And one of the girls she was reciting from Surah, to room
that was her, you know, her gift for the day or half as on the second or third page, the third page of soldato room. And one of the is the loss of a hyena who are dynasties and from His Signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the differences in your languages and in your colors.
So I stopped the cross, I said, Everyone close your must haves. You want to look at this idea for a few minutes.
If you think deeply about this, one of the signs of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the creation of the heavens and the earth, you could talk about that you could think about it and your astonishment would not end.
Just this universe, this this earth that we live in, even ourselves, you can study the human body and you would spend your entire life being amazed at how Allah subhanho wa Taala has created you and everything else. But then Allah says something that we all pay attention to anyone who's traveled or even anyone who just lives in Malaysia, these different languages that we Bahasa Melayu English, you listen to people are coming from around the region, they all speak into one another. This one is speaking or Nepalese, that one is speaking in Hindi, another person who's speaking in Tagalog and so on and so forth. Allah saying that there are signs in that for you to pay attention to. What I want
to point out is that that one ayah has so much to reflect on, that the person who is engaged in the recitation of the Quran or inside out, that person has much to ponder and much to think about, but yet we find ourselves and how many people complain to me, they say, Chef, you know, I'm reading the Quran, I'm praying, but I just don't feel that effect on my heart. I don't feel it making a difference in my life. What should I do? Many people complain about this. So I'm here to tell you that one of the solutions, not the only but one of the solutions is to understand what it is you are reciting. If we did this hood bar or we did a class about the salvia, before people left for the
hedge, I am sure that they would pay much more attention to to what they were saying on a daily basis, even just with Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen we would pay attention to that what does that mean? What are the implications? What is the loss of a handle what Allah conveying, it is extremely important. So let me share this with you. The first of these meanings he said love bei kolomela bake means Oh Allah, I am on screen and I'm on screen and I'm on to me. You call them Yeah, I am. That's when you when you come to the masjid five times a day. That's exactly what you're doing. There was a call Allah subhanho wa Taala called you and you came. Isn't that amazing? Allah subhanho wa Taala
called you and you came.
You fulfilled what Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted from you right now you sitting in this Masjid. You are here because the loss of a handle a dialer called you and UK you might not know about the item
So total Joomla you might not have memorized it or studied it. But you know that you need to be yes. So you came. So the first meeting of the Tobia is to answer the call of a loss of a Hannah who are to Allah. Number two, it means Oh Allah. Yeah, I am to obey and submit myself to you. You called How can I be of service? That's what you're saying, you know, when we were younger, and we lived with our parents, and our mother called us, and then we didn't go. And he said, Barack, and we didn't go. And he called another time, Tarik, and then you didn't go, because your smart aleck answer was, if she wanted me to come, she would say come, isn't it so? She would say, Daddy, come here, come to the
bedroom come to the kitchen. She'd say something. So we had this response. But this year is not just responding. This tell BIA this response is I'm coming. But what do you want me to do? And the Hajj, the Messiah, Li the person will force the person who gives these aka you Sadako whatever he does, he does this and he says, Oh Allah, you commanded. Not only am I going to show up in person, but I'm going to do what you want me to do. I am submitting myself completely. Number three. It is also from the Arabic word love Buffy McCann, a person who stays in one place and he finds himself settle there. So to say that Elvia is to say, Oh Allah, yeah, I am upon your worship and I intend to stay
here. I don't intend to go anywhere else. Many of us, we left behind the life of sin. We gave up things for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And part of the meaning of tell BIA is to say, I will not go back there.
I am here now I'm in the masjid. I'm teaching Islam I'm studying Islam, I've gave I've given up that life. So this is why I am that I am now responding to your call and my my hope my my intention is to remain right here is to you know, like when we perform Attica off in the month of Ramadan, what do we do? We stay in one place in one must eat Why? Only for the obedience of Allah subhanho wa Taala it also means love. Allah Yeah, I am out of love for you. In Arabic we say in Morocco to love a woman who loves her child. She loves it so much. She's overwhelmed with her love for a child. You know that Hadith we quoted many weeks ago, when we spoke about the raw the loss of a Hannah what
Allah we said that the Prophet was he saw this woman looking frantically for her child with my with my son or my daughter. And then after this was after a battle, so you can imagine the carnage and the confusion. But she finally finds this child and she she hugs this child and embraces this child. And so the Prophet turns to his companions and he says, Do you think that this woman would throw her child into a fire?
So of course the Sahaba said, Never Yeah, Rasul Allah, she will never do something like that. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Allah is more merciful to his creation, then this woman is to her child. So I love a loss of a high note what Tyler you love Allah, we love Allah. And so that's why when we do our a vida, it is not heavy. It's not difficult, it's not burdensome, we do it with joy and happiness. We do it out of love for Allah subhanho wa Taala
did the last of these meanings is that the loop of something where the word Tobia comes from is that which is sincere and that is with that which is without any defects and without any impurities. I am Uriah Allah for you and only you I have no worldly desire. I am not here because people pay me to be here. I'm not here because people praise me when I am here. I am not here for any other reason. Except for you. So behind the hood to Allah, they are more meanings to take. But my daughter for myself and for you is at a loss of a Hannah Montana makes us have those that will respond to His commands and he's called whenever we hear them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us of those who say
Samir, I know what I thought I know. Oh Allah we and we obeyed barakallahu li walakum pupil and allow the whenever I knew I er can be mafia him and it ridiculous.

why not only he will be here woman, dad. But my dear brothers, you all know what's happening in the Muslim world. One does not have to be a researcher or someone who's dedicated his life to understanding what's happening in the Muslim world to know what's happening in the Muslim world. At least you just read the headlines. What is important for us at these times is that, as I've said, in many of my code buzz is that we focus on ourselves. Yes, but we also focus on the affairs of the Muslims. We focus on what's happening in the Muslim world. And I don't mean places that are far away only. I mean, right here, where there are Muslims who will not have enough food to eat on eighth.
There are Muslims who will not have new clothing to wear on this aid. Are they far away? Are they in South Africa? Are they in Yemen only know the year as well. Our focus must be global because we are a global oma, our focus must be on all of our brothers and sisters, or the some of our brothers and sisters that deserve our help more than others all who are for lack of a better form to say it say better, that they are those who need our help more than others. Yes, that's true. But we must have this you know this. The sentiment that none of us truly believe until we love for our brothers what we love for ourselves. In a few days, you will be celebrating aid. If you can help others if you can
make their lives better if you can improve their situation. Do so seeking the reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala whether they be here or anywhere else in the Muslim world, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to alleviate the suffering of our brothers and sisters around the world. Yeah, Allah we ask you to help them wherever they are. Oh Allah keep them safe. Oh Allah grab them the kind of peace and security we enjoy in Malaysia. Oh Allah grant them the best of this life and the best of the year after and protect them and us from the punishment of the Fire.
