Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was so happy woman what a
bad old praise due to a lion his breeze and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Today is one of a series about al Qaeda. And the next one will be about the second sacred place of worship that we have as Muslim, which it will be administered in Nebo IE in Medina and will be presented by chef command monkey. And the third one well ended with Jerusalem, that mustard will upside in Jerusalem.
And this is actually inspired by the season we have the Hajj season, and a lot of people go on to Mecca gong to maybe your own mind shallow with us and the end of the year
or going for Hajj. So I would like them to know about it and those who have never been to Macau and never been to el cobre never visited this place before. I would like from them to take get the chance to know more about what does this place is what's Aqaba is
Al carrabba is something very much honored by all Muslims and they consider it a very special place. And a Shetty have put it in a very distinguished place.
Allah subhana wa tada said about this place that this is the first place ever was put on earth for the worship of Allah subhanahu wa tada a word of a tin will the holy ness. This is the first house was put a house of worship that was ever put for people.
And in nebby sal Allahu Allahu Allah he was sent them said in the LA ha ha la Mecca, Allah had made Mecca sacred, sacred place, and he created the heavens the day he created the heavens and the earth and it is sacred until the Day of Resurrection. So the sanctuary or the respect for this place should continue until the end of the days. And Islam shows so many ways of respect to this place. Number one, refer to it as a place of worship who will evaluate to learn by if even when I mean what okay sujood Allah said to Ibrahim and to son is married. Well, he did not either Ibrahima is smart ILA and Bihar IBT. We order Prophet Abraham and his son to prepare this place and purify this place
to be a place of worship where people can pray, can prostrate to the Lord can make a life to worship Allah subhana wa Taala.
Also, Allah Subhana, Allah have chosen the best of his prophets, and the best of his messengers to build it, and to clean it, and to take care of it, and to look after it. So this place was built as we get to know a little bit, either by Prophet Ibrahim, which is considered the father of all the prophets, or literally, figuratively speaking, he's the father of all prophets, or literally the father of all prophets, which is Adam and his son. Adam even said that he's the one who built our karma out of honoring also some enemies said that may be built even by the angels, not by humans in this is to show you that how sacred this place and how special this place, this place has two stones
were sent down from heaven to earth. Hi, john Lindsay diamond agenda, which is a head on acid, the black stone, and Ibrahim both came from gentlemen to Earth, came from Heavens to earth.
And by the way, it is interesting, we might talk about it if we have time. But some of the
one of the premises, Amir Muhammad Faisal.
He used to be a professor at Stanford University. And he worked for the Ministry of volkoff now or volunteer some of his time there.
When he was here in Washington, DC, he actually sponsor a team that the examine part of the black stones, and this via geologists, they said that whatever the stone is made of, it doesn't belong to any stone on the face of the earth. You know, we have a specific three categories with stone in the face of this earth. This one is not one of them. It is completely something alien to what we are familiar with here and he said, that's exactly our Prophet Mohammed Salam told us that this is a stone was sent down from heaven.
Also, it is this place It is a central of the worship. It's a point of reference when it comes to the worship for what leverage Hakka shabalala SDD al Hallam, that Allah Subhana. Allah said, whenever we pray that we should direct our face toward al Qaeda, what is Al calibers? And just as an explanation, when we say face, Al Qaeda doesn't mean that if you make a line from your feet is going to hit al Qaeda? No, it means the direction what is Al Qaeda is? So basically, that's also another way of showing honor to this place. I was a panel to honor honored acaba by making it in the central of the world. And it was looking into some of the research into this. And they found out that the
modern scholars try to look at cannabis possession compared to any other place in the world. It's really in the heart of the world. They said if you make a lion from from whereas Mecca is to the world that we know today. So if you go for example, all the way east to the farthest point east,
Willington something like a city by that name in New Zealand, then you go to the farthest north, okay, then you go to the farthest, basically,
in South America, if you tried to do that, basically look at these three different locations between Australia, South America and all the way in the north, you will find that I'll carrabba exactly in between the three points by 13,253 kilometers. And it reached to the farthest known modern cities or city where people living like he talked about the the I think it's an Alaska when they said, Where's the most known city to be populated with people. So they said, if we look at these three cities, in the three different sides of the world, you'll see that Mecca comes really in the center of the world, it's about 8300 miles between these three directions. So part of honoring this place that
Allah subhanho wa Taala
protected this house, from the time it was built, that every time someone tried to destroy it, someone tried to harm this place, Allah subhanaw taala protected it and never let anyone to harm it. And the example that we're very familiar with when the army came from Yemen, to destroy al cabo, and the profits are solemn, was just born. And Allah Subhana Allah sent from heaven from the sky, a bird carrying stones that killed all the people or the army of abraha, who came from a PC and killed his elephants and whatever you need.
Soldiers he came with. And also, but that protection to al Qaeda was only before the time of the Prophet Mohammed Salah.
The promise of protecting al Qaeda was only in the time until the time of slam on Mohammed Salam was sent as a messenger, not anymore a lot of promise to protect al Qaeda.
It's interesting as an Al Qaeda was destroyed many times after the time of the prophets and rebuild, many times it will be destroyed in the future to and it will be rebuilt until it will be destroyed in the end of the days by again, a lot this.
An army comes from a senior in Ibiza, some of them said he will come and he will destroy a cabin although hydrogen hajra he will knock it down one stone at the time, people watching it and no one will move. No one will do anything and it will never be rebuilt again.
And in that moment, in the B cell, Allah Salim said, Allah will take back the stones that he sent down from heavens, take it back to the heavens. Your father Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah s word, Allah will take back the black stone to the heavens because it doesn't belong to this earth anymore after it will be destroyed. And this is by the end of the days this is after the return of Jesus this after uni completely in the end of the days.
It really must raised a good question. This said, Why? Why Allah subhanho wa Taala wouldn't protect the Kaaba. He used to do that by when the Muslims and the Mohammed Salam was sent as a messenger this promise not there anymore. 100 imaginary take a photo library metal Kava. And the answer for this lemma said because before the prophet SAW
Sell them. The majority of the people who populate it around the cabinet, what are the kofod? What are the mushrikeen the disbelievers and those people don't deserve to get the honor to protect al Qaeda. They don't deserve to get the honor to build it and to take care of it. And that's why in ob Salalah, you send them after he was sent Allah give that honor of protecting al Qaeda, to the people to the Muslims. That's an honor itself. So they will have that honor of protecting al Qaeda, and make making sure to rebuild it if there is anything wrong happen to it.
Among the honoring of this place, that didn't Obi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that it is forbidden for anyone to cut the trees that around Aqaba.
The trees is not allowed to be cut to be utilized for building houses or anything of that nature. Also, you're not allowed to hunt around the room of a cabin, you're not allowed to kill the animals that are in the cabinet, the birds, the cats, whatever, animals that you see there, unless it is something harmful, you're allowed to protect yourself from it. But anything other than that, no, you're not allowed to touch it, you're not allowed to hunt, you're not allowed. If you see a deer or you see
somebody see a chicken, let me eat for lunch, you can do that. So every animals there is protected. Anybody who goes to the room have a cabinet column column, which is an area surrounding al Qaeda. It is something protected you can touch you cannot disturb, even in ob sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said lako total karma Maha Brahma that anything that fall off from you on the ground, nobody else can pick it up. Nobody else can claim it, it should be kept until the person who lost his whatever belonging claim for it again. For example, if you see now in this place, or any in the street, $5 in the floor, you pick it up and you're allowed. If you don't see in a bit around, you're allowed to
keep it as long as it's small amount, but it's something valuable like 500 or 1000. Or around golden ring. No, you can take it you there is a certain rules for it. In in Canada, even if it is 10 cents.
Even if it's one cent, you're not allowed to pick it up and put it in your pocket.
Then what do we do with it? In the old days, they used to leave it until the person come back. But these days know the regulator that that is the last time found place they collected and people can go and take it. That's why last two weeks ago, I was there in Mecca, and I lost my shoes. Somebody it looks like took my shoes by mistake. So now I don't have a shoes. You know there is hundreds of slippers and shoes in front of me nobody claiming it. But I can take any one of them. It's forbidden. You can't take something doesn't belong to you. And that for the sacred of this place.
Also in Nabhi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam forbade us to spit spit towards Aqaba if it's front of you or not in front of you and that's a lot of people don't know this rules that didn't nobody saw some of them said parlimen basata healthcare but anybody split towards where the fibula is a tab osako Khomeini Oh pm his spec will come in his face in the Day of Judgment.
So that's why when you if you ever in the old days you know they don't have napkins this so in the spirit the you have to look down on on the side, but not towards where the fibula is or the cupboards
or the allow are answered since I heard this hadith I never ever spent until I made sure where's the Buddha is before I spent and if you didn't know what it is you just do it if you do it in a napkin or you know which is I think you should do now. But if somebody did it desert or outside he spit basically on the side not directly just in case he facing a camera or facing the Hibler. Also in Nairobi. Salallahu alaihe salam said when you go to urinate or to go to the bathroom, you should not when you sit in the toilet seat or you sit to relieve yourself you should not be facing our cabin no giving out care by your back
and debated over this. I'll explain this in shallow when we talk about global muram
in my Wednesday class, which is sad. sad that this is only restricted in an urban area like in desert. Okay, but if you are in building It's okay.
But doesn't matter even if we go with this some other said No, you cannot ever build an a bathroom and it's facing a criminal. That's why if you see some Muslim architect whenever the designer
bathrooms, they actually don't design it in certain Muslim countries that I know that in their architects, they don't design them the toilet seat to be facing the fibula, intentionally and still that part of Islamic architect
but I believe that it is permissible as long as you have a building inside a building what's not allowed to be in the open field or an open area where you basically facing that there is no restriction around or you're not in the bathroom.
But all these rules the point was, that all these rules and maybe others are meant to show you how Allah subhanaw taala honored this place and out of honoring this place that Allah Subhana Allah called it Baitullah the house of Allah and please don't be like those people who wouldn't be here house for licensing and a lot of lives there. No, it's like when a when a las pantallas said in the Napa de la he was Sofia that this is a laws she's she's kept the she camel a lot of very good as a laws she camel doesn't mean that this is what Allah right out of Allah No. It means this is something Allah made Allah created Allah gifted it it's from him and that's why l can but the same
thing when we say this is basically beta Lighthouse for like any house that Allah auditor to be built. A lot wanted to be built to honor it. Allah subhanaw taala respected it and made it made it very special. Same thing when Allah said Abdullah the slave of Allah because Allah has a slave and he free him No, it means an honoring for that person or the servant of Allah or Allah servant doesn't mean that he is
like the way we think of servants of someone No It means someone else will not honor him by giving this title
as carrabba means the word carrabba basically refer usually to the heel which it means in Arabic language
the something that stick out okay, something that has the shape like a round shape and I'll Kava was called the Kava because maca if you if you can imagine how it used to be, it's flat. Okay, so this flat surface you all see then you see this sticking out building in it. This is the only building that's sticking out like that. And in the in the past it was completely there is no buddy lives around a cab used to be an abandoned area, that is only this building is sticking out in the middle of nowhere.
And this is before Ibrahim basically moved his family there. So that's why it was called El carrabba because it's sticking out something very easily to be recognized and distinguish. I'll combat this word was mentioned in the Quran two times and so on till now either in 95 and 97. Jol Allahu Allah hold capital beta Hallam, pm and the NASS Allah has made the Kaaba, the sacred house a bright for the people
also known as elevate the house and pay to harm the sacred house and pay to it, which it means
mentioned in the Koran
ancient something very old.
Something liberated because Allah freed the karma from being destroyed by dictators or pagan.
It also like when you say electron, it is something beautiful. Okay, something honorable. So that's what elbaite will it means. Also, I'll Qibla which it means direction.
People go around that so some people call it a dwarf any people go around it because the people circling around in which it was known as a boss
who built a cabin.
This is one of the things that we have no clear evidence, like very explicit evidence about who build a cabin.
But the most famous opinions about this among the Muslim scholars and historians and theology is three opinion or three opinions. Number one, a melodica. And that mentioned by Abu Jafar, Al Baraka, Rahim, a whole lot.
The second opinion which is Adam, when he was sent down to earth, that one of the tasks like give to Adam to do
was to build al Qaeda. And this is the opinion of alpha one of the famous scholars of Mecca. Among the successors and set ew musei and the choice of n half of n hijaab lahemaa. Hola. And before him and emammal Josie, the famous professor, and among the modern scholars and Amina shmp, the Rahim Allah, the One who wrote of what will be on
a third opinion, which is very, very famous, which is Ibrahim and he said, I'm Prophet Ibrahim. And this is the choice of urban Tamia being Ethier Iam and Shama Shama Samia Rahim Allah, all of them said that this place was built by
a Prophet Ibrahim Addy his setup.
Why? They said because Allah in the Hadith in Bukhari, Ibrahim said, Allah order me to come to build house.
This is the most strong opinion that evidence of the house but the other group who said no, it was built before Ibrahim al Qaeda was exist before Ibrahim. And we have many evidence to prove that among them what Allah said and sort of Pilbara. He said what he did in our era Ibrahima is Marina ampyra Beatty.
We ordered Ibrahim and is smart enough to clean and to purify my house. So that means the house is exist. But some said no, it means purified and clean it after you build it. Not very explosive. They said okay, they said we have another one. Allah said what if you're a pharaoh Ibrahim will power either mean elbaite what is smart? When Ibrahim and is smart, he risen the house.
So they basically what they did a lot of them to build on the foundations that was already exist. So that means this house this and kabah the foundation were exist. But the build on this foundation, so there is someone else build this foundation. So that means it was exist before Ibrahim did it.
Also, before Ibrahim built al Qaeda,
before he built the Kaaba, this son when he just brought his the mother of his son hajer with his son is married to the place of Mecca. And he left them there what Ibrahim said anybody remember that? There are
in any scan to
mean jewelry at eBay redesign in de basical Mohan? He said, Oh Allah, I left my family. I left my family without food without provision. Okay. In a very basically I left my family be winding up these are in a valley where there is no water that has no plans, nothing in it. It's basically empty. But that place right next to where is your house is your sacred houses. So that means Ibrahim knows that this is the place of Aqaba.
us right. So that means this place known to be the place of Aqaba.
analyst parrot Allah said in Surat Al Baqarah. What if Bo? What the Ibrahima mccannon beat inish but what I love now, what they learn when we guided Ibrahim to this place, where are the bait is where the house of Allah Spano Tata is also in another himolla said that the concept of salah and a bag and had was exist before Ibrahim, there is some of the Hadith mentioned that no did had no one that had sheath the son of Adam did had and even some said Adam himself meant had. And that means the hedge was only performing the visit of this earth in cabin around the cabin. So they said then we have narration giving these suggestions. And that's what all of a sudden they are an hour debating
Woody Allen NASA Lady bacchetta Mobile aka the first house of worship was built on Earth was the one in Mecca
was the one so that means that this was basically this place was the first place of worship and definitely has a place of worship. Definitely the prophets before Adam had a places of worship.
So these are some of the evidence that they used to say it does exist before either before Ibrahim sorry, before Abraham and his son, but who build it before Ibrahim they debated Some said Adams
So the angels, for me what it seems to be that the foundation of al Qaeda was exist, maybe even citizens were building exists at certain time. But for a very long time in history, this was destroyed, and basically vanished. And Ibrahim and he said I'm came and rebuild it. And the way that basically is very close to what we see today, some even said the one who built a chief, the son of Adam, but there's no proof for that at all.
we have no doubt, historically speaking, that al Qaeda
was built several times during the history
And what we know, are undocumented for us, the building of Ibrahim to it, for that Ibrahim built a cabinet that's something I'll call undocumented for us. And we 100% aware of, but also history reported to us that there is other people build a cabinet through time. And among them a very famous known troops or tribes known as Amanda. Okay.
And Amanda build Acaba and Amanda, it's a name of a tribe, it goes to their father in live their great grandfather, Emily, the son of loud, the Son of Sam, the son of Noah. So the basically somatic and among them, they are the basically he is the one that his tribe known to be built of Kava, they used to live in Yemen, and a poverty the very famous Muslim historian, he said, Those nation were known of they're big, they're very big build tall, with a great civilization, the left Yemen and the spread in hijas, in the west side of Arabia, and reach Egypt reach what's known in Syria, Jordan, Palestine, these parts of the world, and some even reach into Iraq, but this whole entire tribe with
time, basically were destroyed through wars. Also we know is the known to build a cabin. Historically speaking also German.
There are the cousins or the while the uncles of smell in his salon, and the first tribe that we know in history that settled around Canada and lived in Mecca. So Jerome is another tribe also known that the build al Qaeda after it was destroyed by natural disaster.
we know also that or I should build al Qaeda and
all these rebuilding of Aqaba happens that we know historically happened after Ibrahim alayhis salam build it earlier the Allahu Allah said
Ibrahim build a cabinet. Then after a while it basically broke apart or fall apart. So that Amanda rebuild it, then fall apart, then the drill home rebuild it, then fall apart, then Quraysh rebuild it. And this narration from Alabama Vitaly reported by hacking will be happy fi assura
so let's look at the most important one which is Ibrahim Allah His setup when he built a cabin. But him and his Sam build a cabin in a very simple way. and Canada was not doesn't look like the way it is today during Ibrahim alayhis salam.
Ibrahim alayhis salam came to his son Ismail and inform him that Allah has commanded him to build a cabin. He pointed to a risen area of the Valley, where the foundation of the Kaaba was established and began he began to work with his son Ibrahim, the foundation of al Qaeda. It's ironic even at best said that he saw it.
He sold these foundation in the cabinet and tell you what's interesting, he said he uh, he Gianna to hava calibres. He said it looks like the molars and it has green in it, and it goes deep into the ground. When the people of Mecca were trying to rebuild it. They were trying to shake these foundations. And the moment the head it would though the Act, the whole entire America had an like an earthquake was shaking. So the people of Mecca said Don't touch it. Don't touch one of the people who were part
of the recent Rebuild of Aqaba in modern days. And I'll tell you, he was telling me he was inside al Qaeda. I don't know if you guys know that. But in 1990, in 1996, the whole cabinet was knocked down completely and rebuilt
completely from the top to the bottom.
Without people realizing they made it in a very interesting way, they put a curtain in each side that the knot down, so people will not see it, and they rebuild it again. But one of the things that I was told by someone who was in that process, he's told me the T so way deep in the basically in the foundation of al Qaeda, the same exact he didn't even know about the duration. He I told him, how did he say I saw the foundation shefali I said, How would you describe it to me he said, like the molar teeth, he used the same word that boss did. And he said it has a color in it like turquoise like kind of greenish color in it as well. Then I told him that duration of basketball
they allow and, and the ratio that came to describe the formation of a cabinet and the same way. So, Brahim and his center or center is start collecting stones for his father, who placed placed them one above another, his style of building do not require cement to keep it basically solid. As the house grow higher, Ibrahim couldn't reach how he go higher and he put the stones. So I lost the panel to Alison for him down a stone from heavens. And he said in this standard on this stone and the stone will carry it out. Carry him up high so he can build the cabin. And that what we call today mama Ibrahim, the Macan Ibrahim, that still exists until today. And it's been said and the
sound duration that counted towards fi today MA in our committee, that the stone actually was what we have today is that much
of the stone. That's how big it is today. But originally it was so big that it will when he stained and he will go all the way to his knees.
And I understand that so you will not fall because of a just a small surface you're on top of it and you go up by you can fall off. That's right. But it was actually all the way to his knees. He goes all the way inside it basically has a like a hole on it and he puts his feet inside it all the way to his knees and it will go up high. And he will put the stones so it's married will handle him and he will take the stone and he built the cabin.
This special stone lifted and gave him higher left in him and give him higher reach. While he stood above the ground is Marian continue to handle him the stones of construction. This special stone agenda became soft, because of the amount of time that Ibrahim stood on it. And basically made a deep print of the feet of Ibrahim and his salon, which is known today as Muhammad Ibrahim. If you go today to Mecca, and you look at the stone, you see the print of Ibrahim speed in that
rod. Alonzo JAL commanded Ibrahim and this marine to leave a vacant space in one of the corners of al Qaeda. And they were surprised for what there is one space left and one of the corner, then by the end of their construction, debris in the end of jabril, came down with the stone from Jenna to be placed as the cornerstone of the house of Allah subhana wa Taala. And that what was known as the black stone, it wasn't actually a black, the stone is not a black. And even if you read in the books of history and the books of Hadith, they will tell you that the black part of it was the top
it's about one and a half foot, this black stone, it's like this size, like a rectangle and you only see the top of it and that was black, but actually the rest of it was white
and in Nabi salatu salam and say that I have no time for it. But in Derbyshire, Sana mentioned that it was all white, and a term black the top of it because of the sins of the people.
Some Ranima said the sense of the people was what because every time people wipe over it, it takes away their sense. So that would turn it black. Some said no, it is because of the sense that committed out
Side A turn this stone to a blog, you might say, what's the significant? How's that possible? The point was, if the sins can turn a block a stone to be dark color and turn it to be dark, what do you think sins can do to your own heart
to your soul, so that's something to reflect upon.
So Ibrahim alayhis salam built of karma in a quite different look than what it is today. First of all,
it only had two corners,
not four corners. The first one, the one where's the Blackstone is here
and the second one over there, that's where a rookie Amani is.
Okay, so he has only two quarter to 90 degree, basically corners. And here, it was a curve.
So it goes straight, and a curve, like a kind of rectangle look without that 50 degree. So it goes all the way in. Then it's curved like basically half a circle that how it looks like. And also, there were a new roof for the cabinet completely open. And also, it has two doors. One from this side, where the Blackstone is next to the Blackstone and another one in front of it. Where's that Yemeni the Yemeni corner is called the m&e corner because it's facing toward Yemen. Okay, like this one facing Iraq, the other one called a sham, because facing north to Syria, and this one call the Iraqi coordinator because it's facing Iran. Anyway. So this basically, there's two doors on the
ground, people can come in the front one an exit from the other one.
And it was much shorter. Al Qaeda today is about 45 or 46 feet high. But Ibrahim only made it 14.8 feet high. So from 14, today, you have basically 54.9 you know, it's basically was 4.5 meter, and today it is 14 meters high. So it's big difference between the two.
And because of this style lead, it doesn't it has only two corners.
It's ironic to know that the Arabs, Arabs did not build houses with corners. They were so scared. Nobody in the Arab culture will build a house with corners. They say because they don't want their home to look like Kaaba. And one of them did it once and they said let's see how Allah will curse him and destroy his house when there is nothing happened to him. They start building homes like him with corners otherwise it took them years to have the guts to build a house with corners because thought that's only something unique to Aqaba.
So the Amanda
I think they call them in English, the American the American keys, you want to research about to them AMLEK it is
among an alibi either they are the one and they just told you under home basically rebuild it. Then what happened later after that. Let's move forward until the time of the prophet SAW Selim when he was 35 years old. Were the people of Mecca rebuild al Qaeda. How did they rebuild and Canada what made them rebuild al Qaeda? Basically what happened
five years before the prophethood of Muhammad Sall Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam was about 35 years an accident happened
with a woman came with to basically with the charcoals and they put on the top of this charcoals some nice, good smell pieces of wood to burn it to give a good smell to the cabin. So why don't she carrying this basically charcoals around and fire around,
fall off her or whatever incident basically happen.
And the cabins curtain caught fire caught on fire.
In quickly the fire reach to the woods because they'll cover made of rocks and woods that basically
The whole Woods was burned. And
in no time most of al Qaeda was destroyed it
and basically it became so weak and in any time can fall apart. So the people of Mecca said we can't leave it like this the sacred place everybody respected it. Let's rebuild it. So they decided to knock it down and rebuild a cabin. And it's interesting when you read in the history, when they were knocking it down, they said Dr. Avila Tora, Tora in the Mohali Nia, God don't be scared with knocking it down so we can rebuild it as of Allah doesn't know what they're doing what an ignorant so they said Don't be worried. But they said let's make a rule. Alliance Helen, I had to come people will donate basically the fundraise to build the Kava, but they made a condition, you cannot donate
to this. cause any money coming from prostitution, or coming from usury. So any money that you made out of usury out of interest, rebar, or prostitution, you cannot bring it into because we want to build it with what with pure money.
listen, you see how it is here. See that curve. That was before it was burned part of a cabinet. So it's not like this, it's like that, okay. So they couldn't have enough money to extend the cabinet all the way towards originally is they didn't have enough money.
Which is only 30 meters, I'm just surprised. Like, doesn't make sense to me, you know, only 30 meters they can go follow that do not have money. So they said, You know what, we just close the tear. And we do that small arch wall. This one you see here, they said let's make a wall here to identify where it is originally supposed to be.
And we just leave it there. So people will know that originally this was part of it, but we couldn't include it now in the new construction. Because they don't have money maybe later on will do.
And what they did,
they also said no stealing money can be used what they did, they closed the door from the man eurocon from the other side. And this door, they raise it up high
why there is an up high because they hire some one of them one of their people to stand at the door. So when it is high, you need someone to pull you up to get in and will only pull off to get in their own people or those who pay so they want to make business out of it.
So they have control over on cabin
one of the reason they've been sitting also because they used to have a treasure inside al Qaeda and they don't want it to be stolen okay. So, they decide to keep it safe by closing the other door so can manage it properly.
So, the change that was made the raised alcazaba from 4.5 meters to nine meters high. So they did good about that it became about 29 or 30 feet high
and instead of 14.8
added a roof that was previously not exist
close the second doorway okay.
To maintain no internal flooding also the cabin not be flooded with water
raised the first doorway and added locked door which is never existed before before it was just opening no doors nothing. So the add the concept of door
and that make them control who in or out or somebody has the key for it and so forth.
And also shorten the distance between the two corners and curved wall due to the lack of material by three point 26 meters on one side and 4.3 meters on the other side. converted the ones curved wall into a flat wall with two corners, added stones to mark the original curve that built by Ibrahim Ali his setup. And that's basically the shape of Aqaba during the time of Polish when the problem of 35 years old. What we have today
There's different I'll tell you what the different various minor different, but that's how it looks like. One more thing. The Blackstone when it came to Blackstone, they said who will get the honor to put it and they said after a big dispute the first one comes, we'll see what he says it was Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and he said, I have a suggestion for you. He bring his clothes like this. And he put it in the, in his basically clothes. And he said everybody carry that garment from every head of tribe carry part or carry hold the garment from one side, and all of us will put it together so they all carry it and the process and replace it with his own hand in that spot in the same spot.
Also, during that time, maqam Ibrahim, this place where Ibrahim the stones were Abraham's footprint it was touching Aqaba was like right next to a cab was not far like that was basically almost attached to a cab as it originally was during Ibrahim Elisa Lam's time. But later on in history, it was pushed back.
This is basically how the building in Ibiza sanlam participating in building a cabin. And one day in Nairobi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was when he was carrying, it was very heavy to carry this basically stones and mark on his shoulder. People are very simple live only have one piece of garment to cover his lower part. So his uncle, or his uncle, my boss told him, my boss said,
boss, he said, don't carry it in your skin, it will basically mark your skin, pull your izhar pull your garment up and put it on your shoulder and put the stone on the top of it. Because at that time, the issue of covering private part is not a big deal for a man to show his private part or part of his hour in front of others. So when he said this to the prophets of Salaam, the process of them reach to his garment to pull it up. He's not a prophet yet or messenger yet. And when he did that, he fainted.
He fell on his face philosophical.
He fainted. He fall on his face of a lot of Selim, before he lifted his clothes up.
And that was one of the things that in the visa Salaam Allah protect Mohammed from anyone to see his private part or his our not nobody ever seen except his own way.
So that was part of how our loss want to protect the honor of Mohammed Salah. And also when the process of them was met young men. One of his friends in Mecca told them Why didn't you join us? He said, What do you do? He said, we go on the night we drink and we go to these places and you know, we have fun we he's was 20 years old and at that time, so he never says okay, tomorrow after we come back from the, you know, taking care of the sheep and he was a shepherd, when we come back I will go with you. So in the bee sallallahu Sallam was waiting for the man to come to basically take him to where the ghosts when the night and where people drink and you know, but in Nabhi Salatu, salam,
Alka LA and he known he slept and he never walked up until next day.
So he never Salalah seldom ever witnessed anything of these indecency or anything of these back Allah protected him from being have any dents in his history salatu salam to be held against him in the future.
Anyway, so they basically this is how it was built during the profits or sometimes I'll Canva remain this way for a quite long time until the omits time came.
And maybe it comes which is about 64 Hijri.
During that time, after the death of Mao Zedong, numa Alia, some people refused to show their loyalty to him to consider him the halifa they rebel against them, and among them, a man by the name of Abdullah ibn Zubair or the ally of the lioness Zubair basically stood against the omate and he was surrounded in Mecca by the army of ewz. In while the surrounding Mecca the hit Mecca with the catapult, the engineer with big rocks and rocks with fire, they put rocks and oil and put let it and they throw it into muck. So what happened, a big portion of oil capital was destroyed and burned.
big portion of the mustard actually was destroyed during this process. But the seed was lifted because the Caliph died. And the new one order everybody to come back. So the seed was left and people left uncap left al Qaeda half destroyed or big portion of it destroyed and domestic was completely mess. So I'm the live user now he wants he's the governor of this area, and he wants to rebuild it. So he said, I made it harder for three days. And I decide to rebuild and kabah the way Ibrahim build it, not the way that people of Polish build it. So what he will do, he will cancel this corner and this corner is to corner and the far can see I think you can see in your
screen. So he will cancel this corner cancelled is gone and extended like this and curve it like the way it's curved here. And you will basically reopen the other door because it's there but it is not basically use it there is a rock or like they have someone to close it down. So he will open it. And he will bring this one down so people can come from here and get from the other side. He said I will do them.
The only different teammate than Ibrahim Ali Salaam. He raised el cobre higher, because the higher you go, the more honor the building is. So he decided to do that. And guess what? It had been? My boss told him Don't
call a DA Hey, Jonathan Aslan, Arianna. sumatera naswa metalia rasulillah live the rocks the way it is live the building the way it is, this is how the Prophet came and he died and Abubakar on Omar on earth man and the caliphs and this Muslim scholars and most of the companions, nobody in nevison never change it. Just leave it in the visa someone was worried about people now that is political unrest. There is a lot of reason people will attack you for because of it. He was not very happy with the idea. Then he said in Nabi sallallahu Sallam was worried about Polish reaction, and I'm not worried about anybody's reaction color in the Navy, so southern half operation de la vida.
And there are shortage of money and I have so much money
and I'm gonna do it the right way.
Because NW Salalah Salam said, if your people are Asia, if your people of the people of Mecca we're not just a new Muslims, I would have knocked down al Qaeda and rebuild the same way Ibrahim build it
and the right way.
But I'm afraid if I do that people of Mecca will say oh Mohammed want to destroy the religious sacred place, blah, blah, blah. So he's this close the door that show you the wisdom of the processor. So he did. So the basically he added the three or four meters taking away out by Porush return the curved wall, made it even higher all the way to 13.5 meters, okay, 44.3 feet closer to reaching to the height of today, and also return the second doorway and kept both open in the ground level
of the loudness of bear surrounded again by the umayyads he was killed al carrabba who was regained by the riots. So now the halifa Abdul Malik of new Marwan got a letter said, what should we do with the change that he made to al Qaeda? He said,
change it. He doesn't want the legacy of this man who rebelled against his dynasty to remain he said changing. Not only that he was not aware that the Sunnah is to do it. According to Brian, he was not aware. That's why later on when he was told that he said the Hadith, he said if I would have heard this Hadith, I would have not changed what Ebenezer bear did.
I would have not changed with Ebenezer bereted. So what he did
he basically rebuild the wall again and make it like cube kinda.
He kept that curve outside. He closed the other door. Reason this one, the one that you see in front of you. And he returned back the way it wasn't the profits of salon time. The only thing he kept is the height. He said, that's fine. Let's keep the hype because it's more honoring for
days goes back another dynasty comes with called abassi dynasty,
that Harun Rashid came to America and he said, What do you think? Before the Mayans now dynasties of Abbas's are not very good term with the domains? So they said, What do you think of the Romanians? Did? Did Should we keep what administer bear did and this is what the process of wish was. Should I not
Knock the camera down and rebuild it according to the wish of the prophets of Allah since people became Muslims and Islam strong now that an image vionic Rahim Allah said, I asked you by Allah, let it be as it is, so that it may not become the sport of kings.
Have a toy of the kings. If the rulers continue to demolish and rebuild the Kaaba will become a toy, losing it respect and honor from the minds and the hearts of people. And he said, Please leave it at this. And it was until basically, the Ottoman Empire time comes during the Ottoman Empire comes during a very famous Sultan is named Sultan Murat Han, in 1039, Hijri, not the Hijri.
During this soap on a big flood came to market and destroyed almost the Kaaba
in many fatals many people dying this flood, it's in the history. And one of the sides of the cabin was completely knocked down. And during the reconstruction of that side, the other side fell apart. So the halifa said, You know what, just knock it down completely and rebuild it again. And they did and the completed in 1014 took them one year to rebuild it. And basically, this is the exact dimension that we have today. of El Capitan. The same way you see today. That's what we're did, the Ottomans died. And it was there. It stayed like this until 1996. In 1996, about 400 years later, King Fahd the King of Saudi Arabia, he ordered the reconstruction of the Kaaba in a way that he
wishes that it would remain until the end of the days.
Because the type of wood that he would use used, and basically the bricks that you use is a lifetime warranty on it. He took it I think from Finland or something like that, that would that it is a lifetime warranty. It's never goes back.
It's an amazing if you ever want to read more about it. So basically, this is how it looks like without the cover the cover.
Oh, lifetime lifetime of humanity. That's what they say. So he brought this very unique wood and very unique. The wood to basically is to it's mainly from inside, like if I have a picture for Yeah, you see inside the Kaaba that's basically constructed with wood here. So there are certain parts of it made of wood and the other bricks. So this special goods and this is special Brooks that he used. It's supposed to be a very unique and have like a lifetime warranty. If you want to read you can read more about it in many resources online. And what's so unique about it Why did he do that? First of all, because it was completely rotten. The wood inside was completely rotten, and a lot of what
he called the found
termite Yeah, termite was completely destroying the camera from inside. So the treated the basically the want to replace it with new and improved one. And they added a new silver
basically face to the black stone. Okay, they renewed the door, completely put a new door, a new lock for the door. I have a picture. So this is the old one and this is the new one. So they made a new lock for the for the door of cabinets.
And, and what is interesting made of pure gold by the way 23rd 23 carats
One of the unique things about when the knockdown and kabah the people who work there, they used to work with the
like dress code or overall has no pockets.
You can't there's no pockets in it, you know why? So people will not steal some of the rocks and go sell them and said hey, this is a blessings of love Allah. And one of my friends was telling me part of the committee that appointed by the king at that time to all these rocks used to be sealed in basic containers and then
schwag or like,
like bags, okay.
And sealed and will be representative from different department intelligent secrets intelligent and religious authority that if then the Romanian all this kind of groups and the gather them in the ship and they went on the Red Sea and the actually while the ship is going with no coordinate save they release all the rocks in the bottom of the ocean so nobody ever will be able to come and bring it bring it back I'll tell you people are crazy about stuff like that in there is the cost just not long time ago somebody was selling the dust that comes out of the profits of salons grave
he somehow managed to bring some of the dust that you know in the horrify in the room where the ads not even close to the grave and he collected this dust today I got some dust and some tissues maybe somebody's throat whatever they think it's so blessings and you know sell it and make money out of it and and people believe in stuff like that. That's why they were very careful about not letting this kind of rocks fall on the hand of people because people really can make a big deal out of it.
And so this is just a very brief background over the rebuilding of a cabin unfortunately we have to pray we only have three minutes left over there
why I have a 10 in my mind
Yeah, I know.
It was 10 when I just arrived that's right then I got sick it was more
Okay, so just give me five more minutes Hello was
one of the things that Blackstone I told you about one thing I wanted to know about the Blackstone Blackstone during the history was unbelievable amount of attack specifically on the Blackstone and that can be a lecture by itself
many times the Blackstone targeted specifically and even the history speaks about one of the Romans came in discards himself and says Hodge and when he reached out Kava ology Kim is not even a Muslim. He came in he took the axe and he had the black stone and destroyed part of it. Then people captured him. And the worst thing ever happened to the black stone
is basically when
a man by the name DeLisle Janabi is the parameter it's a sect is a very extreme shia sect who basically destroyed al Qaeda. And
in this basically not destroyed he took the black stone from Makkah, and that was 317 Hijri.
And they kept it in the East province of Saudi Arabia today, for 21 years.
First, when he came, the told them you cannot get and he said why it's had a promise. He came in, he killed a lot of people around Mecca so he has the reputation of bringing his army. Then when he came, people of Mecca came out. He said, no fight, just let me go as Hajj I'll go to make Hajj, the moment he they open the door for him or they let him in. He ordered the soldiers to kill everyone on the street. They estimated that he killed 30,000 Hajj that day, that season. He prevented the head from being completed. And he used to take the people's bodies and dump them in Zamzam. And he ordered someone to climb the Kaaba and to knock down the means app. This means app or the rain comes
from when he tried to do that he fall off and he died. Then he sent another person then he couldn't and he died. Then he said, okay, just let it be. And in that time, he basically he was very, it's a very clear code for an in state a lot of beautiful things. He said a lot is me and me and Allah is one thing He created you and I'm here to collect. He made your soul and are here to collect your soul, and he will kill people while he's laughing. And he used to go with his horse inside a cab and order one of his soldier was in the top of Canada or around the Canada urinating on people. You know, it just shown an unbelievable amount of respect disrespect and the worst thing is not always
the worst thing was killing people, men and women and children and dumping their bodies in the will of Zamzam. Then he ordered them to knock down so the hit the black stone with the X.
Pick x and it destroyed it into many pieces. Okay.
So they collect whatever they can and they transfer it all the way to Sir in the eastern Arabia today in their place non copies today. And guess what? He put the black stone in a dumpster area. He didn't even put it in a circuit in a dumpster area. If you miss Bella
and it took the Muslim 21 years to get it back and knew how to get it back, they paid him
and like oh please and blah blah blah they bring another group of share to basically beg him to let the Blackstone comes back.
21 years was 22 years.
When people got on Capitol is no Blackstone
until he was brought back
in the 14th of the ledger last day of it. And
after 20 years, he was taken in the last day of eat sorry, in the 14th of hjem. Then it was brought back by 20 after 22 years actually
what I would like to say
out of that almost two feet long black stones
60 years ago
on the reported 15 small pieces like this, like the coins of
15 that's 60 years ago the report left from it. Some some pieces like that big.
But what we have today, not 60 years ago, not half today, only eight pieces.
And this eight pieces and the size of a date small date.
So these eight pieces that's only thing left from the Blackstock the top of it, eight small pieces from it are accounted for. And these pieces are held together in a black clay, compressed of umber. wax and musk.
Okay, the magic module and around the silver. Basically.
Here, these are the pieces.
Yeah, whenever they destroy them, they fall on the floor people take from it in the past. Basically, the only thing survived from it today is these pieces. And they're not the same size. So people think that this is the whole thing is the black stone. No, it's actually inside of this these more pieces.
And, and that's what's left from today. The only other part that is left from Canada. The only other part that still the same
is this part.
which is the Amani corner, that's still from the time of the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam, you might say why he didn't take that Malcolm Ibrahim, the stone of Ibrahim, because one of the Muslims took them up on the stone, hide it with his Garmin and he run you know during that time when they took the Blackstone he took it and he hide it in one of the valleys of Mecca and the search for it everywhere they couldn't find it.
And again this is another talk about macabre him there is a lot of stories about Abraham and how many times the flood come and carried the day bring it back.
One of the things that the last point I made a lot of Madame Ibrahim and the black stones and the Redeemer said
you know the people of Mecca were pagans. That's right, the worship What? idols the worship rocks. But these two rocks even though everybody know they are from gentlemen, very special. No one ever through history worship them.
There is two rocks never were worshipped ever.
Allah kept them pure from any type of shirk.
And also always found no matter how the what happened to them, taken away getting lost, you'll always find them and you always bring them back to a place. And then remember I said until they find their way back to Gen fee IR to V net Muhammad Ibrahim.
Clear sign from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
As many things to be speaking about one of them, absolutely Zamzam
until today, it's a very mysterious word. Exactly. That's the exact picture of where Zamzam comes. This is pictures come from underneath, actually
diver goes and took the pictures. It comes in between rocks. There is no any scientific explanation where Zamzam comes from. Some people said Zamzam actually comes from underneath the blacks. Sorry, the black stone
that's where that original water comes from. And some said notes read a bit around a cabin that area, but nobody exactly knows exactly where is this water comes from until today. It just keep gushing is the amount of water or less, it depends, because what you see today in Mecca, isms are mixed with other type of water. There is another world not far away from Mecca also runs in the same direction mixed with Zamzam. Then you have the rain when it comes mixed with them.
So it's not a pure Zamzam that what you have today, the only pure Zamzam is basically underground. But what you have here, it's the mix of these depends on the season of the rain and stuff like that. But there is a little bit of mixer doesn't matter because it's still in the old days, they used to pull up a that is old enough people hear the witness that if they went to Mecca in the 50s, in the 40s, you will see people still pulling that water from what you see today you don't see this is the will underneath the basically the surface.
We used to have access to it before about 1015 years ago, the closet nobody have access to it especially with unless you have a special permission. And if you go to YouTube and you Google diving inside the will of Zamzam there is actually diver with camera and show you what they see there and all the kind of sort of people through through history. But what do you have today is these basically coolers that they provide you with Zamzam with it?
There is a lot of virtue for drinking the water of Zamzam and one of the tendencia Sallam said she found
wha BAM burn to healing and it is like food for that person.
I ask Allah to Allah to grant those who never been to Mecca, the ability to go and to visit Mecca soon. And I asked Allah subhanaw taala to make it easy for those who've been to Mecca to go back to it. But if Jan alveta Mesaba, Tenley nasci, Amina Mesaba, Anita fubu, la, either to anass that have been ambassade we made the house of Allah a place where the heart always love to go back to it.
You finish the head, you finish after a very hard day's very hard time. With all the difficulties The moment you finishes it, when I'm coming back. I wish I can go back those who went with us last year to Mecca in the amount of Institute it a get the pleasure with some of them to go to Kaaba and inside the mustard give them some more insight about it as well. And hopefully this year, in the end of the year, inshallah you can join us.
If you're not going to hatch I highly recommend for you to register with us and our mustard group.
I suppose the people who register during Ramadan, it got an email by now have some information about how this will work and what is requirement and stuff like that. So we can organize this a shala together. I'm very excited about it. Because there is a lot of opportunity, especially with your family with your kids, even if you decide to go with one of your children or two, or you your mom and her son or daughter be an excellent opportunity for them to come close to each other and to spend a good time in one of the most beautiful, sacred purest place ever in the face of this earth.
Thank you very much. Sir Kamala hair will pray now.
