Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salaam aleikum, which means peace be unto you. Welcome to another episode of the deen show helping you understand Islam and Muslims. And now that you've understood that there is no deity worthy of worship except the Creator of the heavens and earth, it's actually in your Bible, if you're our non Muslim guests, and you are coming to us for the first time, you're a little confused about some things. It's in your Bible to if you look in Deuteronomy six for the Lord, that God is one God. In Exodus, it tells you worship the Lord, alone, know the deity to be worshipped, except God alone. That's the first step onto becoming one who surrenders and submits to God, as
Jesus said, not unto my will be done, but your will. That's the first step. The second step we talk about now, the prayer, if you're a Muslim, you need to be praying five times a day. If you're looking at us from the outside, you're Christian, it's in your Bible, the same thing as all the messengers of God prayed. And Moses, he fell on his face, and prayed the goddess in numbers. In Genesis, it tells you, Abraham, he fell on his face, and pray to God, it's in your Bible. And Jesus and he went a little further and he fell on what? on his back on his bomb no on his face, and he prayed to who, to himself, no, he prayed to God, senior Bible. So we cover two things now that there
is none worthy of worship except the craters, one, not three and 1416 101 and one alone worthy of worship. Then you follow it up with some actions. You say you love God, you love your dog, too. But what about the Creator, you got to follow it up and prove this love so you got to pray to Him. Remember him got a lot of things distracting us nowadays, TV, the music, hollywood, bollywood, the prayer keeps wanting check. Remembering the next life. Now. The charity, you got to give now God has given you all this wealth, you're gonna keep it and what you have to depart for as soon purify your wealth. It's another pillar of Islam. All the prophets of God did it. And then what else do we have?
We have the fast.
It's in the Bible. Also Jesus in Matthew four to tells you He fasted, the disciples of God, they fasted. And now
we're talking about today, because we're bringing you up to speed. Because Islam is based on five pillars. But today, we're going to be talking about the fifth pillar. Hodge.
And, again, as I've been saying, It's a unique thing. When you put all these things together, it's actually in the Bible. In Psalms 80 456, it talks about the pilgrims passing through the valley of Becca. So another way of saying Mecca. Now you're like, Wow, amazing if you're sincere. As I'm sure many of you, are you probably curious, why am I mentioning the Bible, we're talking about Islam, because this is the consistent message that's been the same, worshiping one god submitting to him, meaning, doing what God wants you to do. So we've made some comparisons. There's some things that look, that we don't agree with that are in the Bible, but we do believe there is the word of God in
the Bible that things have been changed. It talks about, for instance,
God has certain attributes, he doesn't rest he doesn't get tired, he doesn't get sleepy.
You see, after the show, I might be just wanting to just knock out God don't get tired like this. But in the Bible, it talks about God sleeping Psalms, got a walk
in another verse in Psalms it talks about in the Lord a walk it as one of sleep.
I mean, now we just need you to think a little bit, turn it on.
Don't turn it off. This is something we can attribute to God. God doesn't sleep get tired of rest. Enough of this. We're going to be bringing out our next guest. Who's more qualified than myself to talk about the fifth pillar, Dr. Shaikh, Mooji. Shekhar How are you? Thank you very much. Thank you for being with us today to cover this very important topic. Thank you. We're gonna get straight down to it. Fifth pillar of HUD. We want to know what is HUD and why is it so important? Can you please explain this
all the lists I mean, it shows you smilo hamdulillah was Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. While early was of the woman whether or not she will lower the hula sharika wanna shadow no Mohammed Abu rasuluh. First of all, I would like to thank my beloved brother, Ed, for giving me this opportunity to speak to all of you
And I hope that's good mighty help me to fulfill this responsibility to clarify a lot of things about the fifth pillar of Islam we call a hug.
First of all, as I start with Arabic by breathing, the Lord, the only one a lot, and I witnessed there is no one worth it to be worshipped but him and also I bear witness that Muhammad, he is a beloved and the messenger of the only one God.
Today as brother Eddie, he started his show talk about four pillars of Islam as he talked about the declaration of faith. Then he spoke about fasting and Salah, prayers and charity as all of them.
common things we can see in all the faith, the religion God sent down to human being in his books, in the Old Testament, and also the New Testaments, also in the Koran. As a quote him, he said, in the Old Testament is spoke about Becca, the value of Becca, it's the same word in the Quran, by the way, chapter three, when Allah subhanaw taala, he mentioned, that is the first house Allah subhanaw taala built for mankind. For him as a place of worship. It's the house in Becca, even we call the town itself called Mecca. So the scholar of Islam they said the house called Becca, and the word Becker as Arabic word. It is a place where the people come and the weep. This has come from the
mean, the weep, and we travel all the way, leaving our families, our children, we leave our business or wealth, and travel all the way to the house, the first house God,
command the engine to build as some history in Islam, spoke about when Adam, peace be upon him and our beloved mother Hauer Eve, when the sin down to hit to the earth from the heaven.
After the forgiveness of God, of course, you forgive them into heaven, after the eighth from the tree. So they came to the ground and gods in the angel, and they build the house for worship in the ground. And we have a similar house in the heaven also. It's called elevating Mahmoud, as in the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he said, this house in the heaven will be visited every day by 70,000 angels, and they will never returned back to the house to show us the creations of God, how big and how, you know,
numerous numbers of creations God is not only us, we are the smallest of his creation, yet we are the most honorable creations as God stated in Surat, Al Isra, which means in English, the journey chapter 17. Allah said, what are called the columnar Benny oedema. wahama. Now, the variable back was a bet in Verily, We have honored the children of Adam
and prefer them over the creations all the creations of God
as a pillar of Islam called had Hajj as Arabic word, if you want to translate into English means it is
a trip. But it's not any trip to make it is a journey but not in Israel. noumic is not it is a traveling but not any traveling you make it is a trip to specific and holy places, Muslim or commanded by a law in the Holy Quran. Through the Prophet Abraham, the one who erected the house, from the foundation in Mecca and the value of makeup. And he after he built the house, he ordered Abraham peace between him and his son Ishmael, to make the call to all mankind. Come and visit my house visit me in my house. Though in Islam, we look at all the mosques, we call them and consider them as the house of God. Yeah, God called us come and visit me in my main house, which is Mecca,
Mecca, it is
the main and the central town of the earth. We call God's mentioned in the Koran Mecca it is Cora, the mother of all the cities, when Allah subhanaw taala created the earth create Earth, first in Mecca, then he from Mecca, the whole entire Earth
born and divided into what we see today, continents and and cities and towns and countries. So and even in according to science Mecca, it is a central point as the earth is oval shaped and is spinning around itself.
When you have oval shaped spinning around itself, you have to have a point,
center point, everything go around it. It is the real, original point. And all these longitude lines as we consider Greenwich Village, it is his imagination line. Yeah, but the main line, it's thought that comes from Mecca, all the way passing by Medina and Jerusalem. So that is the it's been proved by scientists today after the the went to the moon, and they study the earth, all the things. So it shows us God calling all of us to come back to our original mother. That's why you see when you go to Mecca, you see Muslims, not only from the urban Muslim come from all the way from Indonesia, from Australia, from Japan, China, Europe, you know, Latin America, you know, from all over. And you see
the unique and the unity of human being in this town called like, so it's a holy trip.
there is some requests for the trip he must have
financially is able and physically fit. Because it no it requires at least spend at least 10 days, they're more or less to perform very hard work. That is you are in certain cloth. We're gonna explain that soon. And you are in certain areas, where most of it mountains area, desert area is not as many people the living in the comfortable cities and you know air condition and heat and things, it is completely different. We get out of all our belongings, we have no more, no more our wealth, no more banks, no more things, it is nothing but you and the one who created us. So just to
summarize this part you had mentioned, it was first brought by the you talked about the angel with Adam. Yes. And then for from there erected by the prophet, Abraham peace be upon them. Yes. And then from there, it was a call to everyone go to make the journey, the pilgrimage yes to the worship one god, yes. And even in some ahaadeeth some sayings of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. He said, It was no prophet, God choose. But he was commanded and visited that house. You know, because in a lot of history of prophets are missing. You know, people the my think Moses, for instance, he only traveled between Egypt and Jerusalem. Yeah. The reality is that Moses and his brother earn all
the other prophets they visit the holy place in Mecca. Yeah. And they perform it pilgrimage. That is the official word of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. How would you summarize the importance of Hodge? And if somebody just in short wanted to know, we talked about the angels and then the the Prophet is going on? How would you just summarize the essence and importance of HUD, will you see
there is some support from God Almighty as your word for it, of course, and something for ourselves to benefit from? Yeah, there is no service we do in Islam.
But serve it really serve and benefit us because as God said, in the in the Holy Quran, he said, you know, yeah, you unless all mankind, you are in real needs to him, but he has no needs to all of us. So when we do any service in Islam, we understand the service, it's more beneficial to us. Yeah. So let us see from the point of view from goddess, you know, the word as a word, as there is some Hadith, I get called all of them, but just to give you an idea, when the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, he said, Whosoever performs Hajj in decent way means, you know, stay away from any illegal or unlawful act and behaviors.
Not using foul language, not harming the others.
Even even the relationship with you the legal relationship with your spouse, you know, it is you're staying away from that during all of this few days, certain days. And when you are called the restriction of ROM that you're in a certain mood.
At that time, he said, Whoever whoever does it, in excellent way with sincerity, seeking the pleasure of God, He will return back to his home, sinless. Yeah, as if he was reborn again, as if he was a newly born
person, you know, all his past will be, especially the we talk about the sins, the mistake, the whatever evil things that will be removed from his record will be clean doesn't mean that we use reborn because in Islam, whatever we did bad in the past and we ask Allah for forgiveness, that allowed forgive that things but our good deeds is still there and even in some sewers as a loss what Allah said in sort of falkon will echo you bedroo lousy at him hasn't had those, those the really repent We sincerely to Allah subhanaw taala believe in him believe in His Word, Allah not just wipe out or expiate their sins, Allah will exchange their evil into or change them into good deeds. So,
there is there is even when we repeat their word, it is returning the bad into good as a reward. So for pilgrimage, when we go there, you know,
there is a word from God, for given other other reward as whatever we seek in these days, not just forgiveness, if any, any call we make, because we are there to serve God Almighty with sincerity and invoke him. So by invoking him, there is a hadith one of them, God mighty himself says, and the Prophet peace be upon him, he caught this word. He said, I'll judge the pilgrims, or my guest, my honorable guest. This is this. Yes. Yes. Exactly. And he said, I invited them.
So it is it is not it is invitation from Governor mighty. So those the the one the really visit the holy place at the time, they are the one honored by him appointed by him. Yeah. You know, like if you have a party or something he you don't send to everybody. Yeah. You said to certain people. We are today Muslim 1.6 billion. Yeah. Only the fortune people the to make Hajji for you. You know, it's around between three to 6 million people. Yeah. You know, so this small numbers, they are the honorable guests of God, they the hair, the coal. And Allah allows him, allow them to come and visit, visit his place. So they became the forefront and he continues it. So by responding to me and
come to visit me,
look what he said. He said, they asked me, he put the phrase in the past. And I answered them. So as as a traveler when I go there, I know already, that God and mighty. He already heard my prayer. And he answered them. So that encouraged me to look for the best of the prayers, as much as the prayer as much as the invocation you raise your hand, Oh, God, you know, give me some portion. Give me some money. No look for the better than that. You know, it's not just for the for immediate life for the eternal life. The next slide, don't you know, we don't have to waste we know, there is an answer. So this is something we benefit from the trip. As a word from God Almighty. Our service is something
very important. Yeah, you know, think about it, you are leaving your home. You live in your business, you live in your family, you go on by yourself. For some people, they go for 20 days, some people 1510 days. You know, it is a time for us to sit down with ourselves
to start to see, what is our life all about? What is the purpose of our life? How can we change ourselves? It's a chance, you know, for us not to meditate like some people they think, you know, go say this Be quiet and silent. No, no, don't Don't Be quiet. Do something, change yourself. change yourself for better life than the life you had before. Shake Tell me now. We know that. Islam brings the American the African the white the Chinese people come to this house of God to worship one God and it's a beautiful thing that when people do this, and we know that there is a great misconception Some people say you know these Muslims, they worship a black box in the desert, we notice is
something totally false. Yeah. Now, we talked about the importance of Hajj, we're going to get into all the steps of Hajj. So we know how just coming up. You don't want to sit tight and see all the steps. But we want to go into real briefly we're going to come up with a few of the top excuses that some of you guys are making and we hope you're not making them but somebody
I wait until I'm 40. I got some kids, I retire, then I'll make the hedge. What do we got to say about the show? We there is no time for the time is the moment. Again, it has in Islam requires two things requires to be fit to be fit physically and able financially.
There is no age required. So if you're young, let's go for it. If you are if you if you have the wealth go because that's what exactly the Prophet, peace be upon him. He said. He said, Don't delay the hedge, the moment you have the wealth. The moment you can do it today, do it. Because you don't know what will happen tomorrow. The wealth can be diminished the health some people get sick. You know, and I had a lot of experience with that. I remember one person he prepared himself for Hi, I'm going this year. They said,
Well, I'm still young, here. Common, excuse me, take it took him 10 years. Even he said, I will do it next year. It took him 10 years, I met a person from
I believe sencillos. And he told me, he made the Haji first year, the second year he came and I said oh he did the required, you know, he said, Well, this has for my father. I said, Oh your father never did the hash. You told me your father was engineer walk it between Mecca. This holy site. Yeah. And arafa and other cities. He was in a civil engineer building all these tunnels. He said he was so busy building the tunnels. And then he died. And they were living in Mecca. wolky they're just so you can put your clothes around and just perform that, you know, and miss it. That's why we say the honor guest, you know, just a guest You are the most honorable human being does it. I want
you, even you come from South America. And someone live in Mecca. And allows it, not you? Not yet. The person says now you know what? I'm waiting for God. And you said a law had invited you 1400 years ago, some people will say I'm waiting. It's not my time yet God hasn't invited me. I don't feel it in my heart. What do you say to them, you know, that this is see what sometimes give excuses like that. Because we have weakness in our faith. You know, in God, that is them. If we really believe in the God's word, if we believe in the promise of his word and the promise of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him that we would never be hesitant to say, God doesn't want? How would we
know? We don't know the unseen. We don't know what will happen to us tomorrow. As I give some examples, I personally met some Mexican people, people born and raised in Mexico. And I asked him, How many times did you perform hash? None. whatsoever? You know, it is so for the person to say,
Well, I'm still young, you know, I don't know what's what's gonna happen to me. You know? No, no, the first the first one it is must if you if you if you have the means, you must go there is no excuse. Maybe for second time, third time, you can delete but the first one, it is like the prayer you cannot say, Well, I'm not going to pray today I will operate Morrow doesn't work doesn't work. Doesn't work. Because you know, there's there's a word of one of the scholars in Islam called in worship and humbly he said for us to define a person a Muslim, you know, we have to see with that person, the the performance of the pillars of Islam. So if he
declared his faith if he prays, if he fasts if he gives charity or if he travels and he's able we call him Muslim. It is pillar think about it five pillars if you're not one of them down
that person think he is a Muslim? We have he has to question himself if you have a house if you build the house and you're not one of the pillar down Do you think the house would be still there? It's not going to be solid it's gonna fall down we got another one and then we're gonna go on to the fun part all this is fun learning about your Creator and what he getting to know what he wants you to do.
Another communist skew shape. And, you know, we forget that we think this is some you know, devil with the horn and he's gonna come appear and we forget about his tricks. You don't want us to pray. He don't want us to worship god alone. He don't want us to fast and pay charity and he don't want you to die. He don't want you to make Hajj. So these things
The from Shakedown processor. Yeah. So now
another excuse before we go on to the details, and how to make cards and what to do when you're in Hodge.
person says, You know what, I got family issues, I got some
things I got to take care of with some credit card bills, this bill, he's got the money, I'm scared to leave my business behind. I got all these clients, he's got the money, because he's making cards down to Florida. He's making 100 down in his hometown. I don't know where it is, I don't know if he's thinking his house, but you find them every year, every other year, taking the whole family of five, six. But when you bring up hij, he just got a dozen excuses, pulling out his pocket when we got to say, Sure. Well, again, you know, let us remember that one of the advice of the prophets, when he said, Take advantage of your situation today, because you don't know what will happen
tomorrow. Again, he said, Take advantage of youth, you use time, before you get out of your work of the time you only are wealthy before you become poor. You never we never know we, you know, excuses. Again, in one surah. It's called SoTL PM, on Allah about the judgment. Allah says, you know, no matter what excuses we try to present to the Lord, we ourselves know our service better than anyone else. You know, so so sometimes we give excuses, but we know this is not the right excuse. There is no excuse. But we again there is a weakness, we have to have, you know, we have to be strong in our faith. And you have we everyday, everyday in the morning, we say to when we leave our house,
we learned from from the teachings of the Prophet peace upon him by saying, you will leave the house with Bismillah in the name of God, I believe in God, and I put my trust in God. So if you have family you were about,
you have to know, it is only one provider.
It's only one protective garden mighty. It is we are nothing but a means for them to enjoy their life. We are not the one who provide for them, or provide to them or world the world, we are not the one to protect them. How many of us living around our families, try to protect them and all of a sudden, we ourselves get sick.
And we cannot protect our own self, how we're going to protect others. So I think we have to see ourselves we have to speak to ourselves sincere. This execuse I am I made it acceptable to myself, before I stand before the garden mighty. That's a very important thing. And I think once we found that we found we'll find the answer. I think all of us would be able to go and make this beautiful trip, which is called the journey of our life. That's what Indeed it is. And you know what, it's something that you don't want to miss out on. Had you something beautiful. It's a spiritual upliftment, you come into the house of your Lord, knock off all these excuses and make the hudge if
you're already going now hamdulillah we're going to be talking about the steps you want to know what you got to do. You don't want to be confused. We're going to help try to explain some of the details for those who have shunned all the excuses away you making the five daily prayers, you're coming back to your Lord repenting, he's forgiven inshallah everything is going smooth. Now you want to make the hudge shift Can you please break it down? What is after they have paid the ticket? They got their visa the shots and all these other things in order. Now they're on the plane? Yes. Or even just before that, what do they got to prepare before they leave? And then when they get there steps
1234 so they can complete and inshallah haven't accepted Hodge
The most important thing you know, let's see that first hash is very simple. Every better every service we do in Islam, very, very simple, very easy. And hamdulillah you know, as a prophet of Allah, He says in the Hadith,
the deen the faith, the religion of God is very simple and easy.
And Allah will never place any hardship on us in His commands. All his commands are in our match our capacity in our, you know,
in the way we can do we can handle the things is not nothing hard at all. Whatever God commanded. It we have to understand is the most important thing but hash helps to prepare ourselves from here.
The minute you pay the money, the minute you will get all your reservations. You start thinking about yourself.
You know I want to go too harsh not to come back the same person I was I want to be different person I have to make a commitment with God Almighty I have to check with myself what I'm doing wrong here How can I change myself when I come back you know I have to burn my mind this this has it is a journey to allow you are traveling to him that will remind reminds all of us that as if we are really going to meet him which reminds us with the day of judgment when you go there and you see millions of Muslims around you different culture, race, languages, color, but all of them look the same. The way they dress the way the talk the way they pray the way the the walk around. So it
reminds you that's all of us as if we are standing on the ground of the desert. The land of resurrection. Everybody raise their hand to the heaven Yeah, everybody crying everybody but everyone weeping. So all of the things you start thinking about it from today you know you start trying to collect your thoughts and your mind and your heart how you know this is I want to be different How can I change myself you know how can it be this trip to be my real spiritual trip is not just physical trip yeah is you know this this part missing in many people life you know the goal there and you come back oh I never be I don't know nothing tortured me. I'm the same person. Some people
they come back worse than they used to be. No, we want to come back better than the way we are. You know, all the commands for Allah subhanaw taala for service. It is nothing but to elevate us from one status to different to bitter estates bitter, bitter position, bitter life. So that is something we have to bear in our mind. Then now
let me give you some something you should have it in your mind and start to prepare yourself.
Don't burden yourself with many items you carry as a traveler you know Mecca
if you don't shop in Mecca and Medina, you cannot shop anywhere else. McCann Medina, you have the whole entire world there. So don't carry many items with you. In your luggage. Don't don't carry that's the one thing. I don't carry. much luggage. Ah, yes. Take you know,
taking a note very light. Yeah, you know, because you know, whatever things that you need, until you reach there. But you know, I see some people they go to three, three luggage heavy. For what? Sleeping bag with a sleeping bag. You don't need a sleeping bag. Yeah, you don't need it. You know, it's everything's there. Everything's there. You buy it there and the price is cheap. So you can buy a sleeping bag? If you if you really need it. Yeah. You see what happened with in our regular life here? As many of us buying stuff.
There is no need for it. Yeah, let us if we search in your house, you find many things he never used. Yeah, it's still there. So don't go and buy stuff for the men for example, you know, just buy a sliver comfortable sandal. No more than that. Yeah. You know, you don't need to if we cannot find it here. Mecca has the best leather he can see. Yeah, you can find so pack light and you get it there. Yes, I can get it there.
Some people you know they they try to get all these built things you know, yes, he can need some build tools to you know, protect your your wealth and whatever you carry. Don't take too much money with you. And and some something very important also, when you reach there.
Take off your watch. Because you're not dating nobody you're not have a job appointment or work.
Listen to the instructions of the company you traveled with. It's very important. Yeah, you know, don't be by yourself. Try to be with the group because this is the blessing the Barker's as in many words of the Prophet, peace be upon him. So you listen to instruction, you're going to face certain challenges and certain trouble. The first one you will face the minute you land in an airport in Jeddah. You might spend their six seven hours for no reason. You don't know what's going on. Be patient, you Be patient. And this was a pic of your watch. Don't look at the time you ain't going nowhere. Just do not going exactly sure. You know, the, the the bus will take you from the airport
to another location. Be patient, you know, then you get a ticket to another area.
You're not to be silly. Be patient Now, did you you're not Iranian or you know, we just you're from Okay, so let's reverse a little bit. At what point do you get into that state of? Okay? Is that what it's called? I'm just giving some I'm not too bad. I'm just going to talk about something in general to be aware of because it's very very important a lot of people they get shocked when they get there Yeah, they are not familiar they are they used to be here they go to airport 123 you know these just you know, this thin line for five minutes they go to the to the immigration the stamp No, and there's different Yeah, so you're going to face some challenges Be patient Be patient Be patient
This is that's why the trip the COVID ratio to Sabra the trip of Sabra mean patients Yeah, so you have you're going to learn that believe me you're going to learn if he spent 2020 days there, you're going to learn it Yeah. You know when when you are in the crowd area people pushing you to expect someone will say excuse me, yeah, because there is no time to say excuse me, so we have to be very very careful. You know, when we see that
you want to make your trip. Pleasant. always smile. Always when you see when you face hardship or difficulties smile and you know, ask Allah subhanaw taala the prayer of Satan masala is rubbish really sorry. Oh Allah widen my chest make it easy for me you know an ease my desk we don't have to fight with nobody it is you have everybody there sometimes there is no communication because everybody speak different languages. But you remember the are your brothers and sisters as a last part Allah called all the believers as 100 in them and we know if we're indeed the believers are nothing but brother ins so whatever you and you always look how can you help others how can you
cooperate with others this is very important some other things you know when you're in the crowd area don't carry much money in your pocket or things because as it's the season for some people like you or me going there to worship Allah subhanaw taala is also season for some bad people there. So be careful with your money you got some devils working everywhere. So hello everywhere so you make sure what you have in your pocket what you're going to spend outside and don't go in the in the crowd area without pay attention to so that's why we ask people if they can have some built with pocket there where they can have you know, place the money. Remember your passport, you're not gonna
see it the passport they will take it from you from Jeddah airport and you're not gonna see it until the day you are departing from Jeddah again back to you see, so something also you have to bear in your mind that is don't fight with your travel agent. Where's my passport? It has nothing to do with it. This is in the hands of the Saudis government so you have to be careful that you don't worry about it Don't worry about sometimes you know the company will say we're gonna meet you downstairs at seven o'clock pm sharp the buses will be there so people the they panic and they will don't say and oh seven o'clock and become eight, nine then they start you know become impatient. start
fighting with the company. You like to ask you to a seven o'clock you know, no, no, no, he didn't lie. It is. Again, bear in your mind. You're not only there by yourself, you're not in this in, in the big city and everything running smooth and easy. No, there are at least 3 million people around you. And there are 1000s of buses, cars, everything there. And sometimes the authority the clothes, the town itself due to the prayers or some crowd, so nobody allowed to drive in. So you have to be patient. And again, cooperation is very, very important. You make your trip simple and easy and easy for your for your agent, the travel agent and try to work the differences out with each other. This
is would make the trip very easy. And Allah subhanaw taala wouldn't be Alex hipster.
Let's talk about the
the service itself. That's the question about how to perform like the hardest the rules and regulations. Yes.
The rules, any better any service we do in Islam.
This color they classify this the act itself into three, two or three categories. Yeah, for pilgrimage, Hajj, there are three categories. The first category will quote our can which is the essential or the pillar of hatch. The second one we call it,
worship and worship it is less than the essential in degree
called mandatory, so you still have to do them. And the third category called recall them or not, not otherwise, the option was called recommended, which is sooner. So it's an extra or optional things. The first
group, what we call them, pillars are essential. Let us see the penalty of it. If we miss any of these pillars, the whole entire hash invalid, so we missed the hash.
That's why the pillars usually are the smallest amount of actions. And we have to be to pay attention to them not to miss any one of these. The second category, which is where you, or we call it mandatory, if you miss any one of them, there is a ransom for it, you paid or you do certain thing, and your hedge is complete the sun, which is you know, recommended action or option. It is better to do this way, you know, you get the whole the full world you follow as a local meant us to be the processor them to follow his footsteps. But if it came, sometimes it was hard to perform them. Don't burden yourself. Don't burn yourself and burn the people around you. Sometimes people
they hang on little things. Oh, if I don't do this, my hij the whole interaction? No, no, no. If you understand each category, you're not going to fight. Yeah, but what happened people the read one book, and the book doesn't explain to them the difference between this at from the others. So, let us today inshallah try to understand, I will say it slowly, and show it in simple way. This way, a lot of us can take note and understand the whole thing. There. So to speak first about the most important things are what we call them, the pillars, the essential act. And remember, if we miss any of them, the whole entire hash is invalid. So there is no hash. So there are four acts, we have to
remember them. The first one, the intention, what we called intention of
how to be in the mood of certain restriction. Yeah. And then we explain how to perform that. So the intention, any act in Islam, as we know, in order to be judged by Allah, to be accepted a lot. First, we look at a our intention that's in the heart. That is, we didn't say anything if you intend to perform hash. Yeah. But now we're going to talk
another another way. How? And where gotcha. So so the first thing is as a pillar. As even if you were a pray, you have have entrenched
Did we? Did we say, we didn't say anything about yet yeah, with the details, but your intention has to be there. So the first act is as a pillar, the intention of the hero to
be an alpha,
you know, most of the day, the ninth of the hedge.
Third, I don't want to sit most of the day you know, you know, because some people say, Oh, you have to be there from fashion until sunset. That is, the sooner the extra thing if you can do that have to lead if you can, whatever portion of time you can be there, because the school they went all the way until the end of the deal for eight. This is another thing this is this way we don't want to confuse people when I say intention to to be an alpha on the ninth of the hedge.
Because this rahsaan says
so the main pillar of hedge is to be notified no hanohano hash, same thing, no intention. No hash. Yeah. Okay, but data is the main thing. So number three, the wolf alley photo, that is the circumambulation we call it departure or some
in some other language called to have a zero but we call him a an Arabic father because that's what it was in a political and in sort of Baccarat for either of two men are referred when you depart from alpha Suki called alpha. So, this is the it will be after the finish will have fought through the third thing. And number four, a salary between a safa and marwah. It is the walking between the two
hills in the mosque called one one site called a software and the other one called Elmo. So these are the four pillars of the hash, missing any one of them. There is no hash. Again, quickly intention of Iran
To stay in arafa on the ninth of the
three tawaf that pusher, tawaf recorded. And number four walking between the two small hills in the mosque called suffer, and I hope it's clear inshallah those are the main colors. Yes. Yeah. So you can you cannot there is no hazard without this for if you stay is it Mina where you stay and you sleep overnight? Well, now we're going to go to what we call the worship, watch. Okay, so where do you have means, you know, it is mandatory? And if the person missing, there are seven, agreeable among the scholars. So, we're going to talk about what the majority of the scholars are not the oldest cause, agreed. So our seven and then some what extra, you know, in some other school of
thoughts? Yeah. So, there's you know, understand that So, these are the worship or mandatory If we miss any one of these there is a ransom for it. What all of you when you go there you hear the word them means blood means sacrifice, you have to pay extra sacrifice in order to compensate the missing act is like a charity. It is not shared its sacrifices in hajj, we we have to slaughter lamb or sheep or seven people they have to join together to sacrifice to slaughter camel or cow. So all of these
called sacrifice of If we miss actually, if we miss six out of seven, we have to pay for extra sacrifice that goes to the poor that meters of course, this is how they would be distributed there. This is all nobodies. Some I hear some people sometimes say will Well, when I go back to USA, I will select No no. All the performance of act of harsh must be there. Gotta be there. Yes, whatever the government do with the meat, you know, if you know some poor people in Mecca Alhamdulillah is letter there and you go by yourself. Yeah, but usually we have we pay certain banks, or certain butcher and and some people, they're the residents of Mecca, they take care of that. Gotcha. And even
Alhamdulillah with the majority of the scholars nowadays, and the Saudi government does that every year, they send a lot of meats after the you know, clean them and they froze them they send it to poor Muslims all over the world. That's something you know take it took time from the scholars to agree because it said this means supposed to be
you know, deal with only in Mecca. Until discuss it. Well, there are today we have millions of people this latter thing so what we're gonna do we have enough meat, so we are not going to throw them in the desert. Yeah, so it learns benefit from gotcha. So as Islam always taught us to always benefit from from any things that people can build from. So this, this act,
it will be
doing the harm,
and perform the intention at what caught me caught.
So when we going to do the intention, the words, when we're going to put the clothes of her arm on, you know, we have to be at what we call the station of the home, there's a place designated for different different places before Mecca. So, people when they traveled from different places of the earth, the reach to this distance, and they have to before they have to say the word they cannot pass that place of the person they have to come back to say it and if they pass it and there is no way to come back, they have to pay for extra sacrifice. So now they have the intention as as pillar, whatever you already intend okay to do it, but how to do it and where to do it. Now this was called
as the first mandatory act at the distance of
Rome. So we got the main pillars, we got some of the wajib We're almost running out of time, we got a few more minutes if you can break down the rest of them and then to continue learning some of the more is there anything that you recommend that we go and a certain website or a certain book or anything else or how they can contact you directly? Sure. So the second one will be spending
in the on the ninth of the hijab between Maverick until further of the of the 10th in town cold and was dead. Then throw in the pebbles in minute stain in the days that they
or feed in minute
then sacrifice which we pay for it then we cut our hair or shave it and the last one that is we do what are called off what they are the fair will throw off that's at the end the last thing ever we do too before we leave the whole entire hygiene Mecca as we go straight to cover and do
seven rounds around cover called off, these are the seven arguable
mandatory ads among the scholars some scholar This is staying in minute on the eighth of the hedger is mandatory, as well to many some schools of thoughts, but the majority of discard they said it's sooner, that's why I said there are seven acts are the mandatory act. So if we understand that, and six of them if we missing miss miss any of the six we have to pay for extra sacrifice, but one of them if we cannot do it, which is shaving or cutting the hair at the time, I mean, sorry, slaughtering do the sacrifice for the Hajj itself
allows patata and sort of Baccarat he said that that we should first three days in during the Hajj time and seven days when we go back to our home. So this is just so these are the living act, we have to understand these are the main act whatever we do after that our sunon are recommended and an extra act. So in order to understand that
haram itself you know it means you are in restrict of not to be in your normal life again this meaning you cannot cut your hair anymore The minute you alter your intention The minute you say a bake along the hygiene hombre The minute you say that you after you pray that too soon all these students would call but the from that minute when you have your garment on he cannot know more you can apply your perfume you can apply no more we can wear underwear you can't wear socks you cannot you know for men that were had you know it's only too long towels was like cold garments for the woman there is no restriction for the cloth they can wear whatever they want to wear you know the
some woman they said no I must wear white cloth no there is no white cloth you can wear whatever you want to wear. But this is once you are in that mode, he got cut you know a clip your nails no more, he can cut your hair no more he are in the mood of restriction you cannot go back to normal life you are restricted to all of what you do in your normal life until you finish with the certain performance of Hajj at that time. Yes, you will back to your normal life. And you will leave this meaning or out of free of restriction again back to normal life.
If we see someone break these rules, you know someone forgot and he went to the barber cut his hair or someone.
Some people by accident, you know kill some animal over the material is harmed to kill any things in Mecca oil, or any even not. So if something happened like that, there's a penalty for that. And either you feed six people of Mecca, or you first three days, or you pay for extra sacrifice. So this is in general about the Hajj. Because of the time I don't know.
We're going to do because there's some some more details we're going to cover we're going to invite you back, we're going to have a part two where the shake is going to go into some more of the details. Now we encourage everybody shut off the excuses. And if you got the resources you're financially and physically fit, there's no excuses.
