All right at Santa Monica Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Salam Allahu alayhi wa sallam without? How's everyone doing?
You're almost choked out. It's all over. Allahu Allah, Allah. May Allah subhanaw taala make it easy for all of us in sha Allah in our journey to hedge the screen that I want to begin with.
this so what do you guys see? Oh, nothing. That didn't make it. Laptop?
What do you see?
Apple? You guys are ready, perhaps your cap is already there. On setelah? What do you see?
If somebody who isn't in the room and ask you what do you see on the screen? What do you see?
Any color and
most of us we kind of gravitate to the center, right, we see that white rectangle, that's the first thing you see. But nobody actually says I see blue.
And usually we focus on that little one dot
and enhance. If you focus on that one dots, you're not going to enjoy your hunch.
If you focus on the bus that was late.
If you focus on the room that wasn't ready. If you focus on people occupying your space,
if you focus on going to the bathroom, and it just not tidy, it's not your Australian standard.
If you focus on that, and you leave everything else,
you leave the sights, the sounds,
the emotion, the hopes the DUA, then your head is missing what it could be. So my job.
And the job of all of us who volunteer to do this is to take you through a process where we take away all of your rights,
all of your privileges.
And you become in one way or another kind of subject to being led towards completing your hedge that is mob rule. Now the reason why I say we begin by taking away your rights and your privileges, is because many of us have come to do that in whatever we do in our normal life. We're very used to you could see that even in the chatroom, right? We're very used to linear progression.
I click on something it's supposed to work.
I stood in line, I waited my turn when I got there what happened? Why Why is everything you know, not what I assume that it's going to be. So I can tell you
had edge is not what you assume it to be unless you believe it is not as you imagine it. So I want to first begin speaking about emotions,
the emotions of hedge. The first emotion is going to be sadness. Spangler, one of the emotions that I have, as I'm going to Hutch even now as I'm speaking about it, I am thinking dreading the moment that I'm going to get out of the car, I'm going to kiss my wife, my daughter, my sons, and we say okay, so don't worry. I'll see you in three weeks. sha Allah in short,
and you leave them behind.
And you're going to their to make your art for who
are many of them. Right? And there is, you know, they've been or they haven't been for some people, they haven't been there yet. And there is this emotion. There's this longing Subhanallah there's people that I wish I could take with me. There may be even friends and family members who were trying to come with you this had to Subhanallah there's a sense of sadness, and you will feel that. The second is a sense of
It's Panama I've been Alhamdulillah too many year after year up until COVID. Year after year my shot la grew
mean people taking them with us, celebrating the worship of Allah subhanaw taala. And every year there's fear. You know, what if there's a misstep? What if somebody passes away? What if somebody is ill SubhanAllah. I was in Amara, this year, I had one of my people who passed away. Right? I have an uncle.
Everybody called him uncle, but he's my age, as I
am I in the uncle category.
Right, all these young people that are also panela, that uncle passed away, like, I looked at his passport, he was like, 48 years old. I'm 46. I'm in that Uncle zone. Right? It's Pamela, many of us are in the uncle zone.
He arrived with four children, his wife, his father and mother for him run
in the holiday period. As he is on the bus, to Medina, he had a cardiac arrest his wife, and boarded the bus, his children, his parents continued on to Medina.
When they arrived there, we all know that he has passed away, they are not yet informed. Right?
There's a sense of fear. And I want you to have that sense of fear. In 2015, there were moments of difficulty moments of hardship, where there are stampedes and people going in from the wrong direction, and people not listening to instructions and going out when they shouldn't, when it's ordered that you stay in your tents, and all of these kinds of things. It's not always easy. So there's always this fear. Subhanallah, since the time of the Prophet sallallahu, it was said,
you know, the head jittered without the Farewell Sermon of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And his has been just one was this kind of evidence that, you know, it's something that you and I, as Muslims, we look forward to going to the house of Allah subhanaw taala, and we make sure that we returned. So there's a sense of fear. And I want you to have that within you because it will help you in sha Allah in staying safe and listening to instructions and being careful and cautious, and, you know, looking both sides before you cross a road in tawaf, and, you know, being aware of yourself. There's also a sense of hold Subhanallah will I be one of those on the day of alpha? Who,
on account of me standing there, other people around me are also forgiving? You know, Subhan Allah, like some of the Sahaba, they would say, they would look for that person who they think maybe it's that guy, right? Maybe it's this sister or that brother whose heart is with Allah, they don't look it, you know, you don't have to be a scholar to be chosen by Allah subhanaw taala, the right amount of Allah has chosen for whom he knows whose heart is invested in that process. Will you be that one? Will you be the one in the in the in the group in the tent on the bus? Who is the stability of everybody else? Will you be the one who from a distance, I just look at you and you understand? And
you say, oh, I need to help that sister with her bank? You know, will you be that one? Right? There's hope. Will I be chosen to be one of those who serve that would judge
there's a sense of
love for Allah subhanho wa, as you begin your journey, you begin to think Subhanallah
1000s of people
Subhanallah for a lack of better words competed with one another in the Olympics of clicking right. You know, I, you know, seeing some of the brothers writing said I'm wanting some of the writers writing I wrote code to make sure that it's clicking and I was like, these brothers. How do you compete against that the brothers writing you know, Python code, click every microsecond. Subhanallah
it's, you know, was phenomenal. It's something I've never seen before in my life. I've never experienced that before. As I stand in front of you, I don't have my desire.
So I in sha Allah
Insha Allah, and as I stand in front of you, I'm not counted in the Australian group because I put myself in the Canadian group hoping you know, there'll be room for other people. Right. So I'm traveling with daata Sadam, with the Canadians with Americans and all of us will be together in sha Allah will talk about that in the second part. So
There is this sense of all
you are a guest of Allah subhanaw taala and had Allah subhanaw taala not open the pathway for you. You would not want Allah He you would not It's not by how quickly you chose. Sadly the brother who wrote the code didn't get a spot. You know, it's not it's not just about skill sets and ability and Subhanallah This is harder.
There's a dear brother and may Allah Subhana Allah allow him to complete his Hajj a brother of eight passengers he had seven people in his group his friends his brothers for for men for women, they're all with my MCDC group click he got in eight. Yanni it's unbelievable. That's like climbing Everest and Subhan Allah one payment
until now has not yet arrived. Can you imagine? Three two or three days ago the it released again. And he was sitting there he was looking at his watch he Pamela got it again. Other
guy got it again.
Got it against panela nothing anybody can do. I told you you just gotta say look when your payment was made, look by the second and just click, just keep clicking. Got it again. I've got Allahu Masha fire in your heart. I want you to rejoice that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah has given you an opportunity while Allah He is an opportunity. Do not my dear brother, my dear sister, squander it. So begin to take seriously your preparation for the Hajj. You're walking, your nutrition, your sleep, your shopping, we'll do the flip of shopping all the sisters are happy with that Mashallah.
Your shopping, your Eman, your tahajjud
your to rock before fetch your way through prayer every night. Get yourself ready, get yourself in that mode of thought. Allah is bringing me forward panela.
So that dot that is on the screen is important.
What are some of the obligations that makes you from those who want to step forward? Is we come forward as Muslims. We come forward as adults, as you could see, this year, they didn't allow anybody under the age of 12. Because, you know, could you imagine if families was 12? And you're like, Listen, I'm 70 years old. Why are you You know, it's not fair. Right. So this is one of their motivations for canceling out those under the age of 12. That people are kind of aware of what it is that is the obligation that they're heading forward. When we speak about sanity, we mean that you know somebody is understanding of the importance of the rituals of the Rebbe that they're going to
perform. And that's usually tied with maturity and age that there is is Fatah ability.
And that is that law is something that relates to our debts being in order. It doesn't mean that you can't owe money on a home, it doesn't mean that you can't owe somebody else wealth. What it means is is that you are not on demand from someone, someone has not said to you, I need my money before you do anything. You owe this to me as soon as possible. Your hedge is not permitted for you to you cannot put the right of Allah instead of and before the rights of the creation of Allah, how Allah is after Hochuli bad you owe someone it is your duty to either ask them to defer it or to structure it or to monthly compartmentalize it, whatever it may be, but you cannot go having that with you
that there is safety. Now the four Imams they have different opinions about women traveling, especially unsecured and I wanted to speak about that from a macro perspective because it always comes down. In El Imam Abu Hanifa is the only one who makes
the demand that the Macron is an essential for a woman going to Hajj and he takes this from the Hadith of the prophets I send them which is narrated by Imam Al Bukhari,
where a man came and said, O Messenger of Allah, my wife has intended Hajj and I'm going out to the frontier. You've written me to be on the defense of the southern borders of our community, but she's heading to Hajj because the prophets I send him not because the Prophet is going to Hajj Okay, everybody go to Hajj. Somebody has to defend the home and the land and the farms and so
says a messenger of Allah had been written prescribed can scribe to be there, but she's going to Hajj and the prophets I seldom said, Gemma, you are relieved of your post go. So from that is circumstantial evidence. This was circumstantial evidence that the prophets IS LM is saying no, she should not go on her own, the other imams in particular. So Al Imam, Abu Hanifa and an opinion of Imam Ahmed that a woman shouldn't go on her own the other Imams they hold the same Hadith as evidences Well, they say the Prophet never condemned her. He didn't say no, no, she's not allowed to go hold her back. The Prophet just recommended for him to go with her. So it could be seen as a sign
of chivalry from the prophets, it said. Then they use another Hadith as evidence where they say that the prophets I send them says as narrated by the human hat and that there will come a time where peace will reign amongst us that a woman will be able to travel from hadramout, the Yemen to the Canada making hajj on escorted on her own, and she will have no fear. So the prophets I send them envisions that there is going to come a moment where there will be an assurance of safety and travel that a person is traveling and accompanied and therefore it is seen as being acceptable. This is the multiple Imam Malik the people of Medina and the madhhab of Imam Shafi and it seems to be a Raja,
the correct opinion to me Wallah who data Adam. Only thing that is considered in that is Ada. If somebody's husband has passed away or so on, then she should not head out to travel for Hajj, she should defer it for another year. How do we get ready? Well, what are the essentials of our hedge? What are the things that you're going to do when you go there? Right? Think of think of it backwards when I go. And I'm standing on Alpha, what am I going to ask Allah for?
Those are the same things that you begin with now. Right? Kalba gonna ask Allah to forgive me. I'm going to ask Allah to increase for me to give me Baraka, in my home, in my family in my wealth, I'm going to ask Allah to add love in our community to you know, those are all things that you now begin to invest in your trip prior to going to hedge. Oh, Allah, I want you to protect my health. All right, what do I need to do to protect my health from now?
The mindset of hedge is meant to begin before your departure on that state of hedge.
Previously, we used to say select the right agency.
Select the right guy. You know, there used to be those of us mashallah who people say, oh, I want to be in this man with this sister. I want to be in their company Subhanallah today, as you can see, the circumstances are a little bit different.
This doesn't mean that we still don't choose the company that we want to keep when we are there. So assign yourself and align yourself in shop law with a condition in your rooms in your whichever group that you are in with people that you feel comfortable with. And I will tell you in hajj, sometimes
you have somebody who is bunking with you, who is not somebody who your heart finds affinity with. So in hedge, there's no argument. There's no debate. There's no discussion. There's no but I came first you came up Do you mind if I sit here? There's none of that. It's just you smile. So when you come to me in the airport, which you will, may Allah forgive you from now. You're gonna go chef, when's the when's the bus coming? I'm just gonna look at a vehicle law.
And this will be our tradition, right? Anytime you see anybody you know, whether it's directed to you or not, you know, you'll see some brothers brothers brother, you just said I want to bake a law
and then it kind of snaps them into a different thought. I've come to serve Allah Subhana Allah to be like, let bake Allah who met a beat, I'm not sure. We have come for Allah. Take your time. The Cabo will be there when you get there.
It's not going to leave. Right? So those secondary kind of things. begin to think about your company how you deal with each other.
passports, visas, all of those are going to be very important things.
For those whether you are MCDC whether you are with Elevate, whether you are with a door, if you are a passport holder that requires a visa somebody to go in and walk it in. I've already taken one now it's
please see me Give me your documents. I have a Federal Express booking they will come to my home to take the package with them in chocolate tomorrow. So please have that conversation with me today in Charlevoix
travel preparation. We're going to talk about that. When we do our second session I brought my husband or my hedge pack. I'm going to show you what I'm carrying. This is everything I'm taking for hedge. That's it. Right. I'm going to show you exactly what you need. What you don't need is more important than what you need. What you don't need Wallahi Sister You do not need an iron Walla Walla you do not need an iron.
Wallah here I had one sister. She had an island and she said chef every time I plug it in it short circuit I say sister you don't need that. Leave the Hi sister colors. Alright.
Alright, travel like we will talk about that inshallah and I will issue you a shopping list inshallah. Medications very, very important, the medications that you've been prescribed, and also some medications of things you will need, that will definitely run out over there. So, and I'll just point out to a couple of those. Just quickly insha Allah. So the things that you are not going to find there, before you get there, you will not find these
arrive there late. As we are arriving there. You are not going to find hydrolite
You're not going to find electrolytes. You're gonna walk every pharmacy sold out run so that one soda brother, and there's no shipments coming because there's no truck access, intimate, right. So take, take ones that are soluble, you just put them in, don't take the powder, it gets a little bit messy. Take multivitamins, but also take specifically electrolytes and Chatbot. I highly recommend that you buy magnesium tablets for the cramps, because you're going to be walking and dehydrating. You need to over supplement your magnesium insha Allah
as this remains seen chest, you know, everybody gets everybody talks about the Haji cough, right? Everybody you know you're in the desert. There's lots of people around you. There is air conditioning that's blasting from one side of the room. It is a breeding ground for upper respiratory infections. Speak to your doctor now and say I'm going to hedge, you know that the Haji coffee will smile? He'll say yes, of course. Right.
Ask him to prescribe something for you because you will find it difficult to gain access to that their
asthma. puffers so if you're asthmatic Yes, my brother
so just speak to your doctor and say I'm going to hedge I'm worried about the chest cough, he'll happen and I'll put a list of these in the shopping list inshallah. So I'll send it all to the groups all right, this room I seen all of that and Chatbot.
Brothers, we will talk about this inshallah you are going to have chafing, right, your skin is going to become red, then it is unless you kind of listen to what I say to you and purchase what I asked you to purchase Inshallah, if you go
walking in the desert,
where it's hot, where it's moist, and where it is constant friction. So even if you just, you know, just rub your hands now, imagine for some who are with a date, you're walking, you know, eight kilometers, right?
Or you're doing tawaf and when we went they said oh office closed downstairs, you need to do it from the first floor. Instead of the circuit being eight 900 you're doing now a 2.1
Right? That's just how it is. That make Allah you're gonna look at ratio here is Ella Baker Allah who motivate the bacon, Sherry Calacatta bake. That's just the reality. So you are going to need anti chafing cream inshallah I did put up a number of times a complete dedicated Cape Wallah. You don't have to buy it. I'm not getting rich from it. There's no money in it. I'm just telling you. This is what I use. It's self contained. You have your deodorant, you have all those kinds of things. It's easy for you to have it all in one thing on your carry on because we're lending gender what
is a haram? Right? You need it in your carry on in sha Allah. Even when you put that even if you are Vaseline up I recommend
Do you buy a high quality, high quality? Bio Derma whatever it is called Ultra soothing cream for irritated sensitive skin repairs purifies and
irritants are what is it so this irritation and relieves itching
you need it I have a new one for myself
you're going to need it also sisters for your juba's
make sure you buy cotton not polyester polyester is going to rub you here and here and here and it will be very very uncomfortable get something linen inshallah like like what I'm by the way this is my headgear. So when when we are walking outside the firearm, this is me. Athletic pants, light, breezy linen, cotton, right?
Finally, hydrogel. This is for broad spectrum, antifungal, anti inflammatory cream.
I mean sure. And these will be in the list of items in sha Allah
arrival Interjet that we're going to fly into it in sha Allah, which means that we are
okay, it's actually not true, but I want to protect your hedge. All right, so if I'm doing hedge on my own, or if I'm doing it on my own, I have no problem arriving in Jeddah like this, and going into the airport and putting on the airdrop because I believe that the the main part of the people agenda is at the airport for those who are coming in that way. But I don't want you to say shall Yeah,
after clicking for 17 days, you ruined my hatch. Yeah, I'm not going to sell. I'm going to I'm going to do what I'm gonna you know what, I'm going to do it for you. But I tell you that lots of the Imams because Jeddah airport is built.
But people just don't want psychologically they're not ready for that. The new airport is built just at the boundary of that, like they claimed it like that. But it's your first Hutch I'm not going to have any discussions with it. You are going to land in Robin Sharma when we'll talk about that when we're in Malaysia. By the way, I have a big surprise. Malaysian
good brother coming to visit us. Somebody will enjoy time with them in Shaba. Yeah.
All right. So I won't be caught is just the airport as we arrive into it an hour before you will need to make your tibia have a haram and we'll talk about that inshallah. Then we've got locations surround the haram. So let's talk about Islam.
I brought to your prompt with me, Marcela, what is this called?
This is it's a towel, right? It's haram in the Haram.
No, it's my declaration that I'm in a state of Iran. That makes these towels A symbol of me being in a crop.
Does it have to look like this?
Like, does it can it be something not white, for example?
It can be yes, yeah.
Does the Haram have to be unstitched?
What does that mean?
I see a lot of stitching in this by the way, because it's stitched here. Right stitch to the edges. This concept of non stitch is a bad translation right? In out of the the prophets. I seldom said that it does not have high yield meaning Mahalia meaning not tailored.
It has nothing to do with ditching so when you hear people saying no, no, brother, you can't wear those shoes it as a stitch. You say no, no, we don't have a problem with the thread. The problem is, is that the clothing it shouldn't be close. So if I took this shirt off, I'm not going to and I just opened the buttons and I just said I'm arriving into Jeddah I went into the bathroom, my firearm got soiled. Something happened. All I have is this. So I took my top one I made it the bottom and I took this and I put it on top without tying it. I just wrapped it. Is it haram? Yes. No problem.
My wife has an extra Iberia Hattie. Right put it on. She's got an extra Scott Salas. Right? If you go to fight to get into the Blackstone and you lose yourself, you're gonna get something from someone right now.
Don't go. We'll talk about that later in Shama. All right. So this isn't, this is called a haram because it's a symbol of a haram. There is a brother, Joseph Alafaya. And I have his details with me who supplies these mashallah his grandfather, may Allah subhanho wa Taala reward him was the president of the hedge group for India for maybe 40 years. And his brother who lives a little bit before Armadale, he said, anybody who comes asking for Iran they will get the first one free. He doesn't want and the second one is a cost. The second one is a cost. So I remember when I put a poll how many people need so people said we mean Inshallah, I will put his details may Allah Subhana
Allah reward him. He has one condition that you remember him when
in our you're wearing his f rom he gave it to you may Allah subhanho wa Taala reward him all right, may Allah grant him claim and Baraka, Allah him. I mean, that's the spirit of Hajj right by the way, the brother is also going to Hajj with us.
He was a clicker
All right. Yeah. So only men have to wear this sisters mashallah you know, people they always talk about sisters are disadvantaged in Islam, they've never been to Hajj. Allah He you are going to wear whatever you want to wear. Whatever shoes you want to Shala it's smooth the brothers Welcome to Titletown Mashallah. All right.
We're going to talk about the how to put on the forearm and the tibia. There is a different telopea that we make for different occasions in our head come on through my brother's
things that are forbidden in Iran.
What are by the way all these I will send them to your to our groups inshallah. You'll have all access. I'll send you one of my books. It's called reborn, the sacred journey to hutch, I'll send you all of the maps everything in there, you will have more than you need in Siobhan. All right. And I'll create a Google Drive that if you don't want them on your phone, you can grab them. I'll send you the map of Mecca and its roads and Mina offline that you just keep in your phone in case you lose.
Yeah, in case you lose your signal, which happens in Hajj in Shabbat. What are the things that are forbidden? Obviously sins
and those are sins that is relative, you know, sins it's just meant it's meant to be general. It's meant to be open ended. The Prophet SAW Selim tells us to be cautious. So the very word Iran comes from the word how to walk man, something wrong. So now in your mind, you begin to think about what is happening around you that things that are normally halal for me, I need to be cautious with Masha Allah, those lovebirds husband and wife Mashallah.
When you are in Tulum, there is no holding hand tally activity. I'm going to tell Shala Shibori This is the lab she can hold on to you because you don't want to lose her. But there's no romantic walking in the sand dunes of Arabia. Right, this is no heavy VLB none of that right none of this right.
There is no Coralie
and Subhanallah you are going to be in very confined spaces.
With people that are generally unknown to you,
the food is not your delicacy. It's good food in Java, but it may not be to your taste.
You will be dehydrated. I will continue to force you to drink I will continue throwing tablets in your zamzam in your water drink Drink I'm sorry, no you need to drink this. No drink it in front of me. Right? Because my main job is to keep you healthy for you to complete your Hutch right
your goal going to feel irritable
I'm going to wake you up at two o'clock in the morning on the eighth day. I'm gonna say we're going to Mina chef but I thought what right now we have to go now let bake Allah
chef I forgot my love bake Allah home is right there's a bus Don't be that 146 People are sitting saying look panic Allah
and you come on you're lucky to
be considering for each and every one inshallah. No quarrel, no dispute. No raised voice no side. I like it.
So it's a phenomenal phenomenal effort. For men we wear anything tailored, is forbidden.
Wearing shoes with socks,
wearing shoes that cover above the ankle
I don't know what happens it has but you'll find that it gets strange sometimes mashallah, getting married or performing the Nika
using perfumes, I want to highlight that word using what's the word? Not scent. So just say I give you a tangerine Mandarin and you open it in your fingers smell like mashallah, Mandarin. Is this a problem? No, because that the scent of it is not applied as a perfume. Right? But if you buy a meander in body mist, and you say yes, I'm just sprucing myself with meander, embodiment, that's a totally different story. Right? So are you allowed to use soap? Yes. Should you use botanical garden? You know, the heavily scented? No. Can you use something that has a little bit of it was made from natural ingredients, aloe vera or honey or things like that have a scent in them, but it's
not meant to perfume you with it? Is that allowed? Yes. Right.
So there will be that balance inshallah. So use of perfumes on your body on your clothing before you are in prom is prohibited. We are not permitted to hunt. Or even you know, back at the time of the prophets, I send them to find food they had to hunt. So in hajj, there's no hunting and you can even indicate to somebody who's not had Look over there. Right, that's part of hunting. And there is no spousal intimacy, not just sexual activity. But there is no overt intimacy, the hand holding in the cuddling and all of that, haram
things permissible taking a bath please take a bath
take about take a shower. Get yourself ready get yourself refreshed. No problem with that right? Allah subhanaw taala says you may have to do to film that after the head you're going to give yourself a good clean no problem, but enhance you should take your hose you should take a shower you should refresh yourself with water you can use something that is not going to perfume you when you're in the State of Iran, you are permitted to change your firearm and you know having more than one so you will travel from Jeddah to Jeddah with at least one and you will complete your Imran inshallah with one you can purchase more over there or you can purchase from here from our brother,
as I mentioned Inshallah, covering the face
or nose because of dust and because you're asthmatic, or because you're ill is permissible. Yes. My brother
is taking Yes. To use soap on the body. If it is so that is not perfume. Yeah, yes. Yes, yes. So goat's milk soap and other things like that except to
each our platform think that yes. So we'll get to the hair in a second. So the hair is to remove it's too
many queue yourself. You're not meant to manicure yourself and make yourself look. extra special. That's not the intent. Yes.
Yes, yes. No problem. Anything medical Spiller, no problem. anything medical, medical mass, knee brace. back brace
it for a brothers or sisters who are incontinent, maybe some you know the bladder doesn't holder. No problem you can wear the
the under garment that holds that no problem. All of that if there is a medical reason no problem with that. And you can clarify that with me privately in Chihuahua. Covering the head.
Forget fully is acceptable. You're on the bus. You're exhausted. The air conditioning is coming in. You put your forearm up like this you forgot. And then your wife she looks at you with love. welcome
So you're fine. Don't worry about it. Right? You're not wearing a baseball cap you're not wearing you're
looking at oneself in the mirror. I had one brother his children suffer a lot they didn't take the mirrors out of the room I said Why?
Why are they going to take them? No, you're not allowed to see yourself
with where is this? It's some some cultures have those kind of no problem with that. Love. No problem was smelling the perfume. Right you walk by up to some of the photoshoot or something is like, Masha, Allah smells good. No problem. Right?
wearing a belt, wearing a watch. eyeglasses, sunglasses, your ring. Leave all expensive jewelry behind.
We've all expensive put it in a safety deposit box, give it to a friend lock it in a safe
do not take expensive jewelry with you. Please
be very very careful if you wear eyeglasses bring a replace. Pamela I had one sister, may Allah Subhana Allah accept her had she had the habit of like telling people because maybe on the first day in Mina
will talk about the bathroom situation. It's just you know the ground
Asian how many toilets and as she was going in, she was removing it and her glasses fell colors. And she did not have a wrench. It was chef I have the prescription. I said like Allah
subhanaw taala she held on to another sister for the love four out of four everything. Bring an extra pair. Bring an extra pair if you don't have an extra pair, make an extra pair. Just leave it in your backpack. Right? It will happen more often than not. Right? Bring with you those things that are essentials. Can you wear a belt? Can you use a rope? Yes, to be honest, there were some of the Sahaba who disliked
adding that extra row for that extra bill. They said the prophets of Allah Allah Salam didn't do it. But at that time this was a natural attire for them. And it's not a natural attire for many of us today and the majority of the redeemer in fact consensus you would say in our time is that it is acceptable if not recommended in chatbot using an umbrella it's fine sitting under shade is fine poisonous insects things like that. And I don't want to scare anyone but yes mosquitoes flies using you know a spray to get them out of your room or in the desert. No problem with that inshallah permissible things for our sisters yes, they are allowed to wear shoes socks, no problem. We are
going to be making the hajj that is tomato mature means that we're going to enjoy ourselves so we're going to arrive yes
no, don't put it on yourself but sprayer char right at Temecula is that we are going the prophets I seldom did not do tomato. He did Koran. But he asked them to do tomato. It is the default position of those who come to hunch that we arrived ready to offer the sacrifice and also ready to do Remora and separated white by a time of being in normal state and then putting on fram again on the eighth of the region. This is going to be what all of us in general in generality will do but laughter Allah sometimes things change. Maybe a flight is delayed. Maybe you're held back all of a sudden instead of us arriving on the fourth or fifth Allahu Allah what happens all of a sudden were landing
in gender on the seventh. I'm going to say to you all of us our Nia is now had uterine we're not going to make a full room row and exhaust you we're going to do half of our Quran we're going to do our cloth stay in Iran go direct to Mina insha Allah and complete our hunch right? But in general we're going to do hygiene tomato that will become clear with the documentation of the things that I send you and we talk about insha Allah entering Mecca, humility tell via let bake Allah manifesting the bakerella shall be collected cola bake in Alhambra when Yamata laka Wellmune luxury Correct. All of that is the essential the freeing your heart of any attachment other than Allah and living in the
moment this is why you are there. Finding your place with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada coming to the gates and remembering each and every step is meant to remind you of something in life. So when we make the f rom and as you put it
on it is to remind you that you will be shared of your normal cloth
and you will be clothed in simple attire. As you make the salvia LaBovick Allahu mana bait, it's to remind you that you are the weak creation of Allah and He is the master who you turn to seeking help.
As you come to the main thoughts, and you make this declaration that now I'm thinking clearly of you, Oh Allah, it is to remind you there is other stations in life that you're going to pass through, you're going to pass through other gateways, you're going to leave this dunya after what gateway into another. And Allah uses the same word in the Quran to describe our death. Everybody has walked in no route everybody has the time and the thought that they're going to arrive at between ourselves and ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada.
As you first behold the Kaaba, know that little baits Robin Robin yummy, yummy, that the House of Allah subhanho wa Taala is sacred to us as Muslims, and that the benefactor of it, the guardian of it is Allah subhanho wa Taala that it is a focal point of unity that you are one of many that you are going to be in shrouding the Kaaba with your dua to Allah subhana wa taala, that you are not a minority. You know, sometimes we see ourselves as a minority, but you are a part of a huge amount of Arabic, some of Allah who already was said Salam. And when you first glance at the caliber, even if you're into Remora, when it is for when you are there for this purpose, it has a different feel to
So have a dua in your heart, have something that you've come home, and those of you in sha Allah who are with me in my group, and as we go down, I'll give you a little bit of time to just give your heart and a connection to Allah subhana wa Tada perform your toe off, that the beginning and end is one in the same which is our life. We begin weak, we grow in strength and we come back to where we started weak again before Allah we begin weak and unknowing of the world and as we ascend into power and strength eventually we fall away and our strength and our success leaves us and is the ability yes by system.
none, none none that is established from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam but I will send you in sha Allah I have sent it already on the group how to construct your job. How to think of what you want to say.
Yeah, it's not established as being a sunnah of the Prophet sighs
Yeah, which when you and Allah you want to make Nephi your place with Allah, you want to show Allah your appreciation for standing there at this time doing this very bad. May Allah accept
what we do or none. There's no, nobody tells us what's important other than the prophets, I said, and he didn't mention anything, the only thing we know in tawaf, and in seeing the Kabah is Rebecca 18 effing dunya has an awful Africa has no plan other than now, right before we come to the Blackstone, everything else is silent from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. We're going to speak about Aurora shortly and before I begin that, I wanted to just end about Iran and I'll get some of the brothers in sha Allah who have been put on from before to come and try it out. So for those who are watching it from anybody who has never put on Iran before, mashallah, I was special
brothers. So I'll take some time with you inshallah. So some of us are horizontally challenged like myself,
Some are not. So
how do you measure? So if you hold this, you want to measure your chest area, right?
And then you let this part go. Alright, come up under your shoulders. So now I'm holding it to you. So I've measured
this is my chest area, right? So now I'm holding here. I bring this edge
Easy. Yes. Even you experts who put on a crown before I have your approval.
Then you close it.
Okay. You bring it in.
Rolls never done. Hello. Even with this, you don't need a better even with this. I'm going down with US debt.
Coverage. Very important, right. You're going up
Abbas ah, full coverage Camilla.
The length of your chest area, shoulder to shoulder. Hold at that tip. Fold it, do it again roll it down. Let's do it one more time and shut up.
unshare the screen.
Masha Allah. All right.
So you hold one length
shoulder to shoulder.
Keep the grip there. Bring the edge and you could do it from either side.
Hold it there together. Now I have this little fluttery bit. This is important. Don't lose this one. This is what you see people dragging usually,
but they're not professionally certified like you Michelle.
Bring it like that. You got it in front of you. Easy
the unit to roll down
done, you're good to go.
Now I will demand the view in sharp law that you have
a belt you can bring your own belt. It could just be a plain business belt no problem. I usually recommend that you have a pouch.
This will be the place that I asked you to kind of keep a little bit of money.
I want you to make it you know somewhat tight you can tuck it under so that people's hands don't go in. By the way. There are people who whose purpose of Hajj is not hatched
and you do find that there will be people who come May Allah forgive us and men who are professional beggars,
pickpockets who are waiting for honest looking Australians, masha Allah, look at this Australia with all this yellow $50 notes, right?
May Allah subhanaw taala protect you in sha Allah right. So be careful with that. Having it on the side, no good. Having it
in front of you. Right in front of you get one that's big enough that you can have your phone, you can have your hotel key, you can have your energy bar, you can have your small water bottle of water. Right? Everything is kind of in here. Have your band aid, have your lozenger have jellybeans for a little bit of sugar kick if you're tired. I have a little bit of a kit that is here. And you can find these quite affordable. Yes, my brother. Jake, can he ever sign vegan soon. You can have a side bag. The only problem with this side bag is that it's it's on your side.
And because you're always fiddling with your f rom on the top, and sometimes you'll have somebody holding on to you and things like that. This is my preference but yes, certainly OSI bag.
backpack I will show you my backpack definitely but don't put in a passport wallets because they cut it from the bottom. Right. Yeah.
Well it was set up from the top. Now you'll notice this one looks different. But that's just because I'm a profession. You won't have that luxury. Unless you you can find two different ones. So this is a very theme
because it's hot. Very theme. This is my top one. Right? So the top one really simple.
And our brother Masha Allah who I mentioned to you does Allah hair he has he'll have some of these I hope as well for you in July. You just want to drape it now you can put
a pin here, no problem. You can put a pin
there's so it doesn't you know fly off.
The easiest thing to do is take this corner in your bag area in the belt.
so now it's secured so you have one side secure. You can also secure the second side under here. And that way you kind of feel comfortable you know you can reach for things you can hold things by things. You can access your bag, you can cover your bag with it.
that the easier kind of approach. Other people they tuck this inside
I found that a little bit restricted for me because I'm horizontally challenged. But for those of you who feel comfortable with it, no problem in Shopbop All right. Generally speaking, you will want to have some room, some ventilation, some air, you will want to have more than one that you can change in an hour, you will definitely need to FLR for the duration of your MENA out of that was deliver me now out of them was delivered three days, it's two o'clock at minimum to Iran at minimum. Inshallah.
Any questions about that? Putting that on for the brothers? Yes.
Usually 2.1 2.1 You can gain like the but you'd have to code like two of them some kind of like you'd have to order in. So in Mecca, you can find larger ones, you can find more.
All right, we're going to take our first break here and chatbot when we come back, we'll talk about the Omura the process of hugs the days of Hajj, and we'll do some practical demonstrations as well and Chela for those brothers who want to come down and just try on the reframes. Give it a go. For those who have not put it on. I'm very happy to mentor you in it. But we will be nearly 400 500 of us in Kuala Lumpur. We're going to have a seminar together. And who wants to know who the guest is.
So we're gonna have Dr. Zack Knight, come in. Whoa, you have your camera here and you've got all the time what's going on, man? Oh, Allahu Akbar. What's going on with you guys? So alive? Yes.
I don't mind you having one of those as well. But I would say a bag that you can put inside. So one of the ones where are there? They're there. Personally, for the brothers. I don't normally like these ones. I don't like
the leather. The leather ones, the leather stretches. And it begins to smell in the weather. Because it's human. You know how leather can some so my personal maybe for a seminar, okay. But for I would say stay away from these ones. This is from a company called hedge safe.
So because the brother mashallah has been doing a number of times he knows some of the pitfalls. So he's made uncuttable.
Yeah. And may Allah you know, forgive our brothers Subhan Allah, it's a tragedy, really. But it's more difficult to get there now, isn't it right.
So this one is what I would recommend something slim like this, they sell them in Kmart and things where you can wear it inside your dress that has your passport. If it's not waterproof, one of the essential items that we all have to have our
say about 20 of these clean ratbags passports in here. All the things that you don't want to have a little bit of moisture in things, keep them in there and shot luck. But this is something that I do recommend little big for brothers and sisters under your clothing and Chatelet for your passports and essential items, yes, my brother
you can and I would recommend it.
But at times when you go down you need to do currency exchange or you need to get a mobile number or there are times you're going to need to have your passport. There are times that you're going to need to have them keep them secure credit cards, things like that. Sometimes you have them with you. Yes, my brother.
No, no, they don't take passports anymore for what we're hearing. So last year, they didn't take passports, it seems like they're gonna leave passports with people. There are May Allah so when we come back, I'll talk about what kind of documentation I carry with me. So I want you to have high grade quality photocopies of your driver's license Medicare 100 points ID along with your passport. You'd be surprised how many people have to go to Riyadh to get a new passport from the embassy. It's just the reality you know you drop it it's your bag is gone. You know something like that.
So make sure you have backup copies of everything that you need backup copies, one in each bag. One in your travel pouch when you're in transit, always Medicare card, birth certificate, whatever it is that you feel will meet the 100 point i
identification that you can walk into the embassy and they say, Yes, we know who you are, we're able to identify you.
With this with these things.
Money, how much money should you pray?
How much money do you think you need? Other than gifts? You need about $60 a day? It's not much
$60 Yeah, $60 I would say you want about $600 for your whole thing. The reason I say that is
you want to be charitable.
usually, when I talk about money, people are like, Oh, am I gonna use all? So you want to be as you are going up into the mound of suffer. And you see this young, our, there's elderly young brother, who's from whichever country, he has his mum with him.
And he's trying to get a wheelchair. And he's got 200 Riyadh, and the man is saying 500 And he's I don't have 500 and his mom, she's got help me. And you just smile and say, subhanAllah you know, I'm that guy. I'm the one who's going to solve this problem. $60 I got it.
Done. And you walk away in the in the, in the mix of a million people. You don't know his name. You don't know who they are, you know, nothing of that. But that $60 A day came in handy.
handlebar Hi. So think of the palantir's that we have as Muslims. So just say you made a mistake. And we're going to talk about the rich the rules of Umrah and Hajj now, if you make a mistake, how do you fix your mistake, you have to feed people in Mecca, the poor people of Mecca. Why? Because this is how we fix things in our life. So if you want I suggest you at minimum $60 A day other than your gifts and your you know, I want to carry extra I Joy dates and all of that leave all of that other than food you're going to buy yourself or others, you know, think about having 50 to $60 a day portion, some of that for your in fact giving and returned back reborn with Allah subhanho to add
Java programming, or ban with MCDC it's built in. And they will usually outsource it to somebody who will get it done for them in sha Allah. There's usually the you know, the reason sometimes people don't confirm it early is they want to make sure that it gets done early in the morning. So they want to see all of the live animals that came which company has more which company has been because it's a lottery system. So all of the butchers of this company, or they're the ones who are from 6am till 8am. So like, okay, that's the one we want. We want our Corbin done early, right. So that when that draw will be done Allah so sometimes people wait until a little bit
MCDC Yes, yeah, Inshallah, yes, my brother, how many money we need. We wired for spending money for the hutch
$1,000 for buying your other things. So I don't know which package you're with. So if it's MCDC, you don't need anything for qurbani unless you have a violation, you're going to buy and buy so that that will be additional. And they will give you a number this is where you do it or this is the machine you pay that it's because it's all automated now, right? You're just going to tap a card and you can use a card you get yet I suggest to you don't change any money from here. You can go with your Australian money, you'll be able to find exchanges there in Macedon exchange in Jeddah. The best exchange is going to be putting your cards in a machine and taking money out. That'll be the
best exchange that you actually get. So when you get there usually at the airport, I pull out 1500 realia. And I just keep 1500 Well with me, ATM, that'll be the easiest.
So I'd say about $60 a day for about 10 days. 15 days looking about $1,000 Yes, my brother
mentioned before, yes. I stay away from anybody who asks. And you know, you will yeah, there's anybody who asks anybody who sits next to you and says Sir, I want to come I'm from here I lost my passport, I need to go to nothing. Just obey the law who might have been nothing. I any kids, any elders, any injured, nothing. Nothing.
Don't give anybody anything
the ones that you will see who needed are normally the ones not asking. Just like I described, that he's taking asking the brother please look at her she's on the ground. She solved that problem in the walk from Mina Subhanallah a lot of people aren't able to make the walk back. So sometimes you just, you know, you you rent it, you push them somebody else pushes a Chaba
Yes, my brother
on the floor.
Anywhere else then. No, no. shouldn't be there. Yeah. Shouldn't be there in Chatbot. Yeah. Yes, my brother.
So I highly recommend travel insurance for your baggage for all of that kind of thing. Highly recommended. There is no religious objection to it. It's a takaful kind of system everybody puts money into a pot. That pot is used by some people and others don't use it right. So I have my travel insurance it's a family one year plan as long as you're traveling for the duration that's less than one month it covers ticketing hotels, lost baggage all of that kind of thing I recently when I went to UCLA and Remora some bags did not come to some some no the sub no our ordeal they were with me mashallah I claim back something like 1200 US dollars for three days you will came back the
inconvenience of that so definitely make use of it inshallah. Yeah, multi visit hedge insurance or travel insurance. Yes, sister.
Yeah, so if you go
you can sometimes in the bank, they will ask that and sometimes the street side is so busy that the best thing for you to do is to go and I'll show you where it is. It's in the undercroft nobody goes there because nobody knows because everybody has to show a passport. So if you don't want to wait in the heat for 30 minutes to change to $300 and you want to go to three minutes. You just show him that channel
All right, let's take Yes No. Of course. Yes.
In that package I'll wait for him. Yeah, no problem.
What's that mentioned that you will have a SIM card. So is it included in SIM card?
I'm not sure. Yeah, I can ask you anything.
Yeah, so what usually happens is that what that means is they will have somebody in the hotel
every SIM card requires your fingerprint and passport. No, there's no just Here you go. Everybody gets us. Yeah. So so you will be able to get one without having to stand in the lines. That's so we make that service to
make it easier that you don't have to Yeah, so in that in the hotel in sha Allah when we get there you'll be able to process that
it'll be easier to chop they'll have a you know a little kiosk and somebody there who's dedicated for our people to shop.
Alright, yes. Docker.
Minami moves away from the job. Yes.
You're expected to walk but isn't any consequence?
there is no possibility of it.
Like there's no possibility of a bus coming there.
And I'll show you photos to show you why. Because
it's a migration of 2.6 million people down four rows,
all heading towards the Jamaat
and there's no
there's no possibility of sending the bus there. And then traveling down, there's no other all the roads, all the tunnels, it's all people walking. So what there is are young Saudi boys, young Yemeni boys with wheelchairs that they bought in bid that would for 60 rial who will charge you an exorbitant amount to push you
and it's a good service Mashallah. If you are adventure
cuz like I was when I was young you can get on the motorcycles
I don't know if you're adventurous. So you'll find young people on motorcycles they say Hop on 60 rienne and then they do a wheelie and you hold on for dear life
and they go and come 1000 times taking people evading police in you know it's an adventure and you'll see all of that on motorcycle you'll see me on a motorcycle I've watched. So I when I come to visit you at Elevate which I will Insha Allah, I'm not going to walk you there you will hear it
as it comes to your tenant inshallah. Inshallah.
But then there's of course, the Hajj, you can try the Hajj movierulz where it's, you know, GMCs Yukon vehicles that are built for seven passengers that have 24. And you can sit on the roof or hold on the side, and it moves. Not from me now but towards the haraam. As you exit Jabara towards the cabin, you can try to find that, but I would say to you remain with the group Inshallah, get somebody to push, or you push or the, you know, there will be people who will facilitate that. It's the reason we sent those forms multiple times. I know, it's aggravating, you know, you got more the form, I already feel this. Break Allah.
I already gave you my detail, but every system requires a different data entry point. So we don't want you to wait in the hotel in the lobby in Iran, when we're going down to Zimbra in two hours, I'd rather you go straight up. So I want to do pre checking for you. How do I do that? I need a copy of your passport. But it can't be from this system. We need it in this way. And the passport has to be out of shape. Okay. Send it to them again, everybody doesn't the airline, it's a charter flight. We want to assign everybody seats so that you're sitting next to your spouse, it's not randomized. So we asked you again, can you please tell us who are your so there's all these different, you know,
things to Pamela that require a little bit of patience. But if you put in the special needs, even if you are Alhamdulillah relatively well, but you presume I can walk maybe for the first kilometer but afterwards I'm gonna find trouble then put in the special needs, this is something that I will require it I would rather anticipate we would rather anticipate rather than be told at the time.
All right, let's take our first break. And we will come back at 330 We'll give a little bit of time for some auto answer and we'll do and questions personally inshallah. And you can come down here and take a look at some of the things that I have on display. It'll make it easier for all of us the evening law he had a full full day there was no federal law and I'll leave you with one and the ones online there'll be a new Lincoln shot 130 minute speed Mila.
sublimating a nice
