All tres due to Alon His praise and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family, his companions and his followers until the day of judgment.
As we all know, the Muslims around the world and the globe are carefully with so much love.
watching what is happening in Mecca and Medina these days as so many Muslims in Medina getting ready to go to Mecca, getting ready to perform they're ahead. And so many Muslims around the world did not get the chance to do the head yet estimated maybe about 1% of Muslims do had or 2% which is a very small percentage of Muslims that they were able really to go on to perform hajj,
which is understandable. And hedge is not only for those who are in Mecca performing hedge hedge is not only for those who will be in the mountain of arafa. On the ninth day, hedges not only for those who will be in Mena or around the cabin making pull off on a Saturday between the softball model
and head is a lessons and a school and a reminder to all of us. Yes, those who will maximize their benefit from it, or the one who will experience physically. But as if no Chi and Rahim Allah once said, there is two travelers to Mecca, the one who travel with his body
and he will be physically there.
And the one who will travel with his heart and the one his soul will travel to Mecca, and to arafa and to Mina and to miss Delica to be around and how long even if his body somewhere else in the world.
For sepharose Cephalon sufferer kulu or suffer on abdon. And what he meant by that, that basically when your heart is attached, when you allow yourself to reflect and to think of what that means to me what an hedge is all about. Because I can guarantee you that there is people don't learn anything from HUD, even while they are in Mecca. I'm not saying after a while from coming back from Hajj they forget about everything. No, I'm talking about people even inside Mecca. They didn't get the lessons. They didn't learn the concept. They didn't learn what is the point of going to Mecca. As I said last week, unfortunately hedge is all became about a long list of nose and don'ts. You're not
allowed to do this. You've been allowed to do that. And sometimes you will ask you a very strange question. Like Ibrahim and nahariya Rahim Allah was asked Is it allowed to scratch my skin or my hand? Any word would stop me from scratching your hand he said yes. He said to how much you need to work limit kalila I had Carla Elantra
he said scratch it until you see the bone if you if you want What do you mean the tire? Jani some people became like when when this is not new by the way. That's why I've been a bass rahimullah when the bother him was so many strange beauty questions, which is shows you not the problem of asking the problem of the mindset, the problem of the misunderstanding of the concept. That's why when they kept asking me when I burst so many these strange
Pity questions and Limbo period now that they are simple now that silly questions he said Egypt to leukemia lol era
aluna Nia and damaged by OVA. want him to run a demon Hussein?
He said, What is strange? You are you asking me about, you know, I did like this to my head or to my head on as a mosquito on my forehead. Or I did like this and I killed a fly by mistake. Oh, did I kill an ant, or onset if you killed an animal? And you asked me if a mosquito will be considered an animal any common sense that not other brands speaking about price being and forbidding hunting, nobody hunt flies and mosquitoes? I hope not. So, and he said, I'm surprised you're asking me about these questions. And you never cared about the blood of Hussein, that you have spelled in Iraq, either by being in the army who fought Al Hussein, or by being among those who betrayed their Husayn
and gave him up to be killed.
So those people didn't get the lessons, they didn't get that concept, what is the point of
and these are some reflections you might need to work on the more you and your family and maybe friends, something that you can see what is something that missing in my life that I can relate to it, or our life as a community, or even as a oma and as a society as a nation.
Number one for me when I think of how I think of Poland nebia sallallahu alayhi wasallam haldwani man a seeker come. One of the most famous a statement with the process, Olam said, Take your monastic learn your knowledge, or your deen from me from how I practice it.
And another word This is an invitation to all of us to make sure that we practice our religion according to the sin of Muhammad Salallahu alaihe salam, according to the way of the prophets of Allah, not according to the way of a specific group or Gemma or whatever it called themselves. You go and see is this how the Prophet sallallahu Sallam did it? Is this how the prophets of Salaam wanted to do it? Because on hammertoe Oda Al Quran never told us how to perform hajj, how to perform the Hajj and what's the ritual the head. It was basically a general orator, perform HUD reform complete your Hajj and Umrah but similar to an abyssal Salam would explain to us how to perform this
head, how to perform the oma
and what is allowed and what is not allowed and when it should be done and where and what the sequence what's the orders and so forth. This is a very important listen for our oma today. who unfortunately don't seek the guidance of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in it all it matters. Sometimes we only look at what's the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam when it comes to concepts that it fits us that is comfortable for us. But we don't look what is the son of Mohammed Salim when the issue that matter also the most. So for example, you will see what's the man will look at what's the son of the prophet SAW Selim, when he in the salon were in domestic, but he will
not look what is the son of the prophets of Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam at home. You will see a sister will care about what's the son of the prophet SAW Selim. When it comes to for example how to make Lulu or bahara purification or
this but you will not look at what's the sin and how the problem order us how to dress or what is the dress it should be for the Muslim or how she treats her husband.
She will he or she will not care for the sin of the process of them when it comes to the issue when it related to social justice. When it comes to stand for what is right. We will not to come to the sin of the prophets of Salaam when it comes to spirituality. We will start seeking a spirituality from people who are not from the way of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam so that's important concept should be basically expand to cover all our life to see what's the guidance what's the way of Mohammed or Solomon every area of life.
Also, I had must have an Amir must have a leader cannot have since we know what is hedges. We never had had in history of Islam without a leader.
law you did head up to the Navy so salam, ala Leone be doing a mural has never happened as far
I know there is always someone appointed as called a mural heads person in charge of that
he makes the call
because that's a huge big Chrome. Somebody has to put to organize that, to organize that work to organize that effort. And that person should be listened to and obeyed and the system that he put should be in place and checked and and basically lead that the oma
even in Nabi sallallahu sallam, when he couldn't go to Hajj, who did he send isn't Ababa cartelli the hut before he went to Hajj salatu salam in the eighth year of Pedro, then the next year, the process of him himself led the head.
So he You see, there is another lessons for us to know that leadership is a very important
role in our community. And I'm saying for a time, and I still believe we have still a need of more leaders to come to the society. And those leaders don't think of our situation here in America and in the West. When I talk about leaders on the level of our community, in our society, in our
basically level, that representative body can be represented by several forms. One of them is individuals who are leaders, like religious leaders or individual who lead the community, also lead organizations but also organization in my opinion in these days. Consider also leader inside our community. There is organization leading efforts in one area, like for example, you have organization leading effort when it comes to health issues to decide to lead the effort in North comes to civil rights issues when it comes to so basically relief organization, the taking the leadership on those, you know where we need to appreciate that lead. We need to understand the value
of this lead of this leadership. There's people taking leadership role in every mastered in every organization. But I'll tell you the truth, those people will never function. If the Society of the community don't appreciate the role. Don't work with them. Don't listen to them, don't interact with them don't basically respond to their call. Otherwise, there is no point from it. Can you imagine the Emir of hedge telling them Hey, everybody go route one and nobody cares.
What will be to be a mess, but unhedged teach us that there is a rule and there is a leader and without good leadership, wise leadership, it will be a mess.
I had remind this oma with it with it's basically history. Every time we go to Hajj, remember the prophets of Salaam and we remember the companions, but even Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam when he was doing had, it's interesting, the process of the marking with his companions and had then he goes down in the valley and he said, I can see that musala his ceram also came making tell BIA I can see that moose at one time, he came to Mecca making Toby a singular Baker lahoma bake.
He prayed it mastered the life and he said I prayed here and many prophets before me prayed in the same place.
In Nabi sallallahu Sallam in multiple times, he would mention the Prophet and Messenger before heard before Him who came and performed the same ritual. You know, when we threw the jamara to do you remember Ibrahim and his family and that's another lessons for us. We will not have a future if we don't recognize our high pass. Those who try to disconnect us from our past completely, are trying really to cut the road for us or basically cut the the veins that bring fresh oxygen to our hearts and to our mind. Our future and our presence should be always looked at and plan by learning from the past while or unfilled with all these unforgettable stories is to take lessons from it and to
plan better for the future. why there are so many stories about Benny Esra Eve to learn from their experience try to learn from their success and from their failure. So we can basically as the oma do a better job in the way that they when it comes to the deen that Allah subhanaw taala have entrusted us with
in had we learn that Islam never want us to separate dunya from the
GBI and NASA trucchi dounia Kalia. They'll have
People leave everything behind their back when it comes to her.
Then Allah subhanho wa Taala said about why would go to Mecca, Kalia shadow manaphy, Idaho, so they will witness benefits and the benefits here it's a financial benefits. People do trade people get to basically make plans or trade and sell and buy and and make money during Hajj. Yes, this is not the goal of HUD. But even if it's not a goal, it's not a forbidden things to be achieved. Many people think that adjust it means that you don't be successful in your life. You don't basically a person who can accumulate wealth or to get a high degree. And religious students It doesn't mean that you're not an ace Jesus should be an A students, you should be a successful business person, you
successful whatever field of work that you are, and fedco de la Hakka de crookham Usha dechra remember Allah is the way you remember your family and your forefathers. Even more than that
allows the panel to an order them to make a lot of Vicar to Allah subhana wa to Allah.
But with the same times he told them and he recognized that they would remember their family they will miss their family and that's why there is a concept even there is no time to go in detail to it. There is a concept called handwritten letter, handwritten message to make ombre. Then you have free day a few days off, then you start your head. So Omar rhodiola and said jasola I couldn't get this concept. cognac tea I do now. Mina
wha Yeah. Annie Walker Isabell Jana
obiri. Live in a civil Makkah.
He said, I will come to Mina.
After I did that means I'm completely finished out of that. I come back. Absolutely. Everything held for me said yes. So how come I just go to Mina which is tomorrow had after I just intimated with my wife
then in the visit, so what's wrong with that?
Because some people thought this is how people taught religious study. It means to avoid everything in the dunya it means to cut off every desire. That's impossible. We are human beings have our own desires. And these desires, if it's not fulfilled in the halaal way, it will be fulfilled and the wrong way. And that's a lessons that we should learn how we deal with our souls hadn't been filled pit the AMA, a new force
and had Melania and a member of him is moved to Holland
and had based on a very, very beautiful principle. Allah Masha Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam jabber
jabber said the process of never was asked that day the day of now about anything
in has to do with the order of actions unless the person do no harm. Do no harm. It's okay yeah Rasul Allah I made sir a bit before off he said no harm. Yasser ally made this talk before jamara did no harm jasola I slaughter before I throw it no harm. It's okay do it.
In the Bissell solemn walk, know he was riding his camel sallallahu Sallam to make sure that the people will see it number seven alpha refused to fast and when he heard about people fasting, he said there are a little sign they're not allowed the sending an RFI you don't fast you drink the water. Let the fast thing for those who are not an RV you have another another thing to do. And out of a he sit in the shade sallallahu alayhi wasallam
you don't ever choose the hardest way to do it.
And nobody will never did that. Once I was in Mecca.
I basically I had someone with me and I told him Hey, you can use the electric car to go around Aqaba? You know you don't feel very well. He said yes. But I can't. I said yeah. But that's gonna make it harder. He said yeah, there is more agile. I said I don't know about that.
I will not feel that there is any more agile in taking the card than you just walking. If you it is hard for you to walk. Absolutely. Actually. It's much better to take the I think it's more rewarding if you take the easy way. Because that's how the Sharia is built upon. And when you know what's so weird. I'll be very honest with the same people
Who do this thing kind of things? When it comes to think that that matters? That is not optional between good and the best between the pure heroin,
they will do it and they wouldn't care.
For Rahim, Allah is the most forgiving, they wouldn't care. That's weird mindset. And that's basically, in my opinion, after generations what happened, people will start having this, you know, narrow vision of what's religion is all about. It's all about choosing the hardest way making difficult and erosions never was ever about that. Also had European oven Nevada to heat with the slim lilla.
I come and head jurmala laser,
let's head toward ritual of head, teach every and each one of us as Muslims, that we should submit completely to Allah.
There is no reasoning behind 99% of these actions.
Why to have to start off from LA black storm? Why to have to put it in your left hand side? Why to have it seven? Why do you have to do seven? You know, in this way, why to have to have jamara this order? Why there is no reason there's no logical explanation for it, except one thing that the prophets of Salaam did it and we had, that's how we do it.
That's exactly how it is why you have to stay with Delphi in the night and why don't allow it to do this before that. That's how it was why it is the ninth? Why does not the 10th
it is exact because you teach you something, to submit yourself to law, to not forget that in the end of the day, no matter how powerful you are, how smart you are, how young you are, how wise you are, how rich you are,
you still a slave of Allah,
you still a servant of Allah, you still someone owned and created by your Lord.
Not to break that arrogant inside you. You have to learn how to submit.
Otherwise Allah could have explained otherwise. We believe that every single legislation and every single paddle everything happened in the world. There is a reason behind it and wisdom. But a lot doesn't share everything with us.
it reminds us of the archaea,
remind us of the
hedge is a reminder of your piano. When you look look at the TV and you see those people coming with their caffeine
that remind you of how people come from their graves, different colors, different look
from different parts of the world.
And they will all gather in one place. And it's amazing how this place keep accommodating them you read in the history. People 781 1000 years ago they told you it was so crowded and I said what are you talking about like couple of $10,000 a couple of 10,000 people making you know 20,000 people maximum of this you're making had that time at that like eight 900 years ago, you talked about a 2 million people today it's not 3 million people's praying to coming together and out of it until accommodate them. There is an aeration but I don't know about the authenticity of it. It says the demeanor is like a Russian it's like the womb. Its power. It's basically ccommodate the size of the
baby no matter how the baby big or small going to be.
What is overdue for in the hierarchy taqwa Allah subhanaw taala said that the best provision for HUD is a tough one. That to prepare yourself for the ophira ask Allah subhanaw taala and you hear polu venafi have they had the money? No. yaku Minamata burian akuto masumi Tomas de la jolla.
Al Hamdulillah salat wa salam, O Allah May Allah Allah be about the who and
when we look at Al Hajj and what is
the lessons that we're supposed to learn from it. And again, for those who came late. Regardless if you go in or not, you still reflect? You still relate? You still see what is required for me to do while I'm here,
that unhedged, teach the best of manners,
teach you how to be patient. That's why Allah Subhana Allah said there is no jeden
No doubt, no argue.
It teaches you how to be patient with people. People step on your toes all the time. And you know, you just be patient. Also, it teaches you
to be down to earth. No matter how rich you are, you still wear the same clothes. No matter how rich you are, you will not be recognized from the crowd.
You will be looked the same.
It teaches you
generosity. It's amazing and how to how people compete to serve one another.
bring food and distributed and put water and distribute water. You know to people offer meals unlimited for a while. But the old good days when they used to go every year, I will never forget that I was Delica we always plan how are we going to cook our meal? But every time we end up getting food from every corner everybody around us, hey, we have macaroni we have this we have that people like to share
also in ob sallallahu alayhi wa sallam colorata Drona my beautiful head, you know want to know how to make your home abroad, which is basically your reward is nothing but gender what how to make it mobile city so how can I do better and hygiene? What's better? He said, so I'll allow it to sell them that by being good to others.
That's an encouragement to be generous. To teach generosity. generosity starts with your smile starts with your words. Then goes beyond that. also teach us that we should care for people can and may be subtle mem chabane. NASS, we are all a Sakina Sakina hakoda you should be a D. He used to walk between people basically doing this hand gesture he say a second at a second and he come down Come down Come down.
That's that's the role of
us. That's the whole up that's the mannerism that we should deal with each come down. You didn't need to get you know
not to me. You don't need to go crazy on each other's come down.
You know, there's we all gonna have a shallow tan. Crazy. Did you see what how people acted just because there is a lot of rain coming on this weekend. Have you seen how people and Walmart and Sam's clubs and these guys are
finding almost overwater.
Last night's come down I don't want water by something else. You know people are like so agitated.
That's what the role of us the role of good leaders people a good man is to come people down. That's a good manners.
That's a good mannerism when it comes to dealing with others.
Also, one of the lessons that I couldn't leave had without mentioning it shows how international versus religionists
just look at the faces of the hijab and ameya to Islam top half and had to be shaved It's
unbelievable. How how basically wide this religion is comes from every corner of the earth. They come to this place. People from everywhere
and Allah subhana wa tada Yeah, and with each and every one of them.
You know, one of my friend saying that one of the soldiers in had on was telling him about this simple woman. She looked at all the hijab in the huddle, she's sitting next to him. And she making any this two hour the loud voice he said yeah and he all this head judge now calling you your
natural mean hombres de la mahalik my. She said
you leave these guys for a lot of bed and just give me attention for a few seconds. I just want to make one request. I said Mel like Southern Harris very pure heart. She think that she needs a few seconds by herself every seconds are you are by yourself with a lot.
It just shows you how amazing god that's panel to Anna we have.
I don't want to say that.
Those who are heart over there.
I asked a las panatela to reward them with the judge as well. Harlan Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa
selam Mala Mala bin Illa Boucher.
anyone say you love bacon Allah, Allah bacon during Hajj or Umrah when he called love bacon woman Hunter nomina Bush, the angel said I have a glad tiding as a response for you.
Then individuals one on one kabara mo Kabira on a level ship, and no one will say Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, unless an angel said, and I also have a glad tidings for you.
So he didn't leave the one who never made it to hedge out. He said, there is something for the one who go who've been to Orrin Hatch, and the one who's not unhappy. What's the glide dating that the angels have for both? Hallelujah Rasul Allah wa rahmatullah Shiro jasola. And what the angels going to give what the glad tidings, the angels how for such person, he sets all sudden the agenda. May Allah make us among those people who deserve it, and who enter it, and who stay forever in it without ever being punished before that.
Finally, I have a few points to cite.
People asked me if I was going to be joining
tomorrow and also, and I don't follow that madhhab have that opinion that to join Juma and also because I don't believe Juma is a vote prayer. Those scholars who believe that a Juma is a form of our prayers, well join the boat on acid so the Juma and basically an ourselves I don't believe tomorrow is a vote it's a separate different Salah when it comes to timing, the way to perform and so forth. So that's why I'm not going to be joining the arsenal and the tomorrow to somebody said chef, but it's raining, it's raining don't come to the mustard. Have you ever heard the certain amount telling you don't come to the master?
In Nabhi, sallAllahu wasallam said and he ordered a villa to call the dansette Salo theory, Hardy comb, pray at your homes, when it was was raining so hard. And I'm saying we're going to close down we're going to keep the mustard open the Sharla.
Okay, Ed, as long as it's possible and safe. But my point is, there is no harm. In addition, some auditor said call people from that don't that's why the sudden and this is for the son now he you can if you if you want to do as him other than to do instead of saying hey Allah, Salah, come to the Salah, you replace that by saying pray out, Yuri Han Solo very hard equals solo very hard.
Basically don't come to prayer replaced by pray at your place, because it was not safe to for them to come to the Muslim. So that's basically the answer for this. I have one more thing. Some of you in the come to the mustard, I noticed they like to take the back areas, and they pray in the back or on the side. And I just want you to know that is an options available for you, which is these chairs. If you notice all the in the sides, there is an like kind of
storage area on the sides and there is chairs in it. So what you can do, you can pull the chair and stay close if you want. Or even if you don't go to the corners or the back, you can use the chair and by the Select comes you can fold it and put it back and pray normal. You don't have there's nothing in the Sunday and you have to sit to the floor. If you cannot, and it's not good for your back. You're always welcome to use these chairs to do that. And just you fold it and you put it back. My point is for those who pray the back when the Salah start, or those who are going to pray on the chair and they are on the back. The will be hard for them to catch up with the lines when it
lines up for the Salah. So what happened in many times I've been told, I can't see you from here, but I've been told us several times now that lines are not complete. And in the bizarre some of them said among the completion of the saliva completion of the lines.
And I cannot imagine that we are lazy to that extent not to walk just to the side to fill up the lines. I don't think is that the issue is being just lazy to walk I think the issue is not being paying attention. So I hope that you before you especially if you're on the side of the line before you line up a new line. You look you see if there is basically a space left just followed up. Before you pray this is the responsibility for all of us. And if someone tells you hey there is a space here, it isn't Navy so some of them said Masada when I say that huddle people will intentionally keep
Getting late or basically praying behind like going to the rare lines and that will lead for them to intergender late as well.
So that's not a right attitude when it comes to the hair. The earlier the earlier you come and you closer to the Imam the closer to the first line is the best
attitude I guess when it comes to Salatu Juma I asked the last panel data to accept from all of us. And this applies to men and woman as as well.
