Come and check. I want to do hedge and I want to know what is the common mistakes of hedge Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah bad Salam alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Barakatuh. My dear brothers and sisters
when we were young, when we were growing up, our parents, they taught us Islam. They encouraged us to be muslims and taught us to love Allah subhanaw taala and love the messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
However, at times, there were things which were passed on maybe from one generation to the next, which maybe weren't from Islam, had good intention, wanted to bring about some goodness, however, didn't really have any basis within the religion of Islam. And over a period of time, that people then thought this was a genuine, authentic Islamic practice. However, we know that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that, beware, be very careful of these newly invented matters,
that these newly invented matters are a source of misguidance and misguidance, of course, will ultimately take that person to the Hellfire We ask Allah, Allah, Allah to protect us, I mean,
so on the course of our journey, in practicing Islam and you know, engaging with knowledge and gaining more knowledge, it's important to refer back to the authentic practices of that what we find in the Quran. And that what we find in the authentic sources from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu, it were they were seldom,
as I mentioned, that there may have been good intention from one particular individual that got past on other times, there may be actions which are done, however, the evidence which doesn't support that there may be something a weak Hadith, or maybe a number of reasons. And all of these things may come under if you'd like a title of common mistakes. Common Mistakes are common beliefs that people may have, at a particular time, or when you are performing an act of a bad act of worship. These are common things that people have.
Now, in fact, you know, the scholars of the past, they would compile books of narrations and these narrations, which were very frequent on the tongues of people. However, these narrations were weak. They, some of them were made up narrations. Some of them were very weak narrations. And scholars of the past compiled the books of these narrations saying these are generations which are frequently mentioned on the tongues of people. There are many books written like this Subhanallah to identify and make sure people were aware of those narrations which were weak and didn't have any basis in SLM. So this is not, you know, a modern day phenomenon, where people are, you know, being
overzealous in you know, pointing out mistakes, or pointing out things which don't have any basis in Islam. This is something that existed from the you know, the early times of Islam, making sure one's Islam is based upon authentic sources and I don't think really, anyone should argue or want to argue or disagree with, everything we should do should be referred back to the Quran and the Sunnah, referring to authentic sources. Now, on the topic of hajj, there are multiple things that people believe that they do during the Hajj that they believe to be correct.
We should know that Alhamdulillah Islam is perfect.
There is nothing has been left out in Al Islam. The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam taught us everything, everything that was revealed to him, he taught to us Al Hamdulillah. And it has all preserved there are no shortcuts. In arriving at something before or how the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam taught us. He told us the optimum and best and only way in how to do acts of acts of worship.
Now, what I want to speak about Dayton, Ohio, because what I've mentioned, I think are important principles for us to move forward and talking about such subjects. And there are certain things or beliefs that people have during the Hajj, or maybe even an Omaha
that they believe to be correct.
We all want to mention these things. May Allah Subhana Allah bless us all, and guide us to that what is best, because we want to fall in line with the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it's not about a person, you know, taking the higher ground and I'm more knowledgeable, you are there new and so on. It's got nothing to do with it. This is Dean of Nicaea. This is a religion of sincere advice
and that nobody is above being advised whoever they are.
What is correct is correct.
What is incorrect is incorrect. We are all followers of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu it well it was. So I wanted to go through some of these common mistakes that people have believed in or follow during the Hajj or maybe even the Amara. The first one is the first glance of the cab. The first glance the first sight of the cab that derives accepted okay there is no authentic narration to support this
and you find that a person may have inherited this knowledge from somebody or somewhere and to say that you've never been before you Okay? As like you know the first time don't waste the opportunity. Make sure you've got that door on your pocket don't forget it when you see that caliber that's when you make that door that'll never be rejected, okay? There's no authentic basis for this okay? There's no authentic basis for this and a lot of equity Allah can answer your supplications at any time, yes, there are optimum times there are very good times for you to make dua and it is hoped that your I will be answered more likely at this time other than you know, other rather than other
times. You know, Saturday job, like after salata us up on the devil Juma does an optimal time, a time between the oven and the karma again as an optimal time. Okay, but that first glance, I'm afraid that this is a common mistake.
Another issue is when making power off.
Now when making Tawaf, it was the practice of the Prophet la socialladder When he would go around, he would kiss the Blackstone,
he would kiss the Blackstone if he was unable to kiss the Blackstone did he would touch it.
Okay, if he was unable to touch it, then he would put his hand
in the direction of the Blackstone
there is a mixing where a person who is far away from the Blackstone so far well of course they cannot kiss Blackstone, they put their hand towards it and then they kiss their hand. Okay, this is incorrect and you shouldn't do that the practice of the Prophet edit Salaam is we know the Companions as well as the if you're not close enough to kiss Blackstone
is that you don't kiss your hand if you do, unable to kiss it. Okay? And like the Yemeni corner, okay, you can touch it, but there's no kissing of it. Okay, you can touch the Yemeni corner but there's no kissing involved of the of the Yemeni corner.
Also, when making fall off, there is this Unison
that everybody together chanting the DUA together, both brothers and sisters
is not done in congregation to Office individual. Yes, you may be with people but it is an individual experience. And therefore the hours and the supplications that you make are for you. Now there aren't specific do hours for the first time you go around and then you get you go to the booklet and then on number two, you say these and then number three, you say those I get that has no basis. It is allowed for you to talk if there is a need for you to make, say something or whatever. But make zikr yourself make dua read Quran these are the things that you should be doing Shotaro and the person may say well, I don't know all the dramas that are taken or you know from the authentic
sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, no problem, no problem Charlotte Allah say would ever do that comes to your mind that God is close to your heart and your needs in specific.
Another common mistake during the
during the performing of the hedge and and so on and so forth, is performing tawaf on behalf of another person.
So off is for the person who is making that offer themselves. You can't perform the toe off
for another person. As for making Hajj for another person, then yes, that has its place. If the person passed away, you want to make Hajj for another person, that's fine, that's clear, but to take part of the pilgrimage and dedicate that, then we say no, that's incorrect. And Allah's pattern is best. Also, when throwing the stones on the Jamaat, that you think that these are shaytans themselves, this is the devil. And therefore you find people throwing umbrellas and shoes and knows what that they can find. This is not the case, this is not the devil himself. Okay, this is as the prophets are certain but done to establish the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa taala.
there are many common mistakes and we don't have time to go through some of them or all of them, but some of them are mentioned in the last one we mentioned China, Tyler, is the Cabot self and touching it and wiping and so on and so forth. Okay. Again, there's no specific evidence to state. This is an authentic practice. And it goes back to what I mentioned at the beginning brothers, sisters of adhering to the teachings of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, we ask Allah Allah to guide us through that Allahumma Amin
May Allah subhanaw taala bless you all as Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
