So America Hello barakato
Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa sallahu wa salam Baraka Vienna Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman Kathira my bad welcome you back again to tell seal class. Today inshallah tonight in shallow water Cotati we're going to be talking about a solid hedge from the book of mythos I'm Nigel Cassadine, the secrets and the etiquettes of hedge.
And before we get to the subject of hi just want to make sure that we still keep in our minds and our hearts in sha Allah, Allah, our brothers and sisters in Reza and Philistines, Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for the middle of the night. I mean, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to give him a variety of anatomy. We ask Elijah to alleviate their suffering and bring peace and tranquility into their hearts did Elijah Allah We ask Allah to protect their livelihood to protect their lives, their properties, their children, their families, we ask ALLAH SubhanA whatever to restore their life to the best that was unbearable. And I mean, we ask Allah Subhana Allah to remove that oppression and
aggression that has been imposed upon them. We ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to be there for them and given the victory against their aggressors, Dr. Abdullah Al Amin. So as we speak about the etiquette of hedge NAVADMIN Kodama, Mo dalla is coming right now to the last part of the five or carnival Islam. He spoke about the Shahada. He spoke about subjects of Eman in general. He spoke about the etiquettes and saw the secret of Salah he spoke about the secret of Zika and charity, he spoke about the secret of fasting, and now he's going to talk about the etiquette and the secrets of how people go to Hajj. How many of you guys have been to heart so far? Raise your hand.
May Allah subhana wa there have been go back again for hijaab anatomy and those who have never been there may Allah subhana wa Taala facilitate your Hajj easy for you and Sunnah Bananaman if you go to Hajj obviously, as you know, that a lot of effort is put there in hajj, you need to put money, time, energy, there is so much in Hajj And subhanAllah
you've seen through their eyes probably that a lot of people when they're supposed to be on a such a very sacred journey. It kind of like a lose, lose themselves or lose their focus specifically when they're fatigued. So they start saying things and doing things that's completely negates the principle of hygiene, the presence of hygiene, some people they go there just for the for the shopping and history, making sure that they get the best stuff that they have in the market and Allah subhanaw taala accept the hijab line and forgive them the shortcomings. So what is it for us when we go to Hajj what's the what's the essence? How should you view the subject of history? We're
going to see this in shallow data right now. Ma'am? Even Kodama Rahim Allah Dara Bismillah. This will honor him. I set out to certainly Casa de la Sol Allah Allah Allah is the author. He says,
On the etiquettes of the pilgrim
if one desires to perform the pilgrimage, he the pilgrim to begin with repentance doba fix any grievances. He may be guilty of payment of debts, arrangements for provisions for those for whom he must provide until His Return for returning of the trust entrusted to him. Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was a marvelous amalgam. Kodama Rahim, Allah Tala, he now he is speaking about what is the thing that you need to start with before even you go to Hajj. So he is now he's talking about the things that you need to prepare before you go on that journey. What are these things? Number one, you have that bit Toba? To begin with Toba? What does that mean exactly repentance. Again, the Toba the word
Toba in Arabic different and repentance in English in English Repentance means basically when you stop from something you never go back to it. Toba in Arabic is repeatedly always every time you make a mistake. You come back to Allah subhana wa Donna seeking His forgiveness obviously. So now repentance, the first thing that's in regards to Hong Kong Allah subhanho wa taala. So the first thing that you need to be conscious of and worry about is what the hell go the rights that you owe to Allah azza wa jal, you are making a lot of mistakes, you are falling short on specific obligations. So you need to be prepared by now doing Toba for all these mistakes and all these
errors. So the first thing is in regard to the hook of Allah Subhana Allah the rights of Allah azza wa jal second, he says God, what are the ill Morales? Ramadan is basically fixing any grievances he may be guilty of. But Allah Allah I'm here actually, these are in regards to the rights of human beings.
So the first one Toba in regard to your the right that you owe to Allah subhana wa taala. And second is right, you owe to people you wronged somebody, you took their money, you hid something from them, you inflicted harm on somebody, you're going to have to go and of course reconcile with them. So that they'll mme that now what you believe that you've wronged other people, you need to reconcile before you go and you travel
Now we're not going to go into details of how you do that because some of us might say, what if this person is not going to forgive me for example, does that mean that a hedge harasser is invalid for me? No, it doesn't. And unnecessarily and if you know the person if you go and you try to reconcile with them and seek their forgiveness, they're gonna make even make it even worse for you. In this case, you just make the art for them and behind their back and try to fix the situation whatever you spoke ill about them you're gonna speak better in the same places and so on. But the idea is that before anyone goes to hedge, they need to make sure that they're worthy of that invitation.
And making sure that worthy that invitation that Allah subhanaw is inviting you to his house that you need to fix your relationship with Allah subhanaw taala and then the relationship with the people then he says called Walk although dune payments of debts these debts right now these debts also from whoever but what's the difference between the first one and the second one? The first one who got a bad will you have inflicted actually harm on them? You're guilty of it. But do you and obviously that's not necessarily something that you're guilty of? This is just a matter of
engagement with the people that you borrowed money from them so there is now a monad between you and them. Now does it mean if if someone has a debt let's say for somebody I have a 10,000 I owe this brother and now I want to go to Hajj this year. Can I go for Hajj and then inshallah pay this brother later but Milazzo then the answer is obviously first of all you need to seek permission from this individual says hey, man, I know that my my my debt is now dude that I pay you back to you.
But I gotta separately to go to Hajj this year. Do I have your permission? Do I have your permission to take this money with me to go to Hajj and inshallah I'll pay it back to you next year. You have to seek permission from the kurta and if this person says Bismillah go for it then you are allowed to go for Hajj.
But if they say no I need my money then what do you do? You give them your money their money?
What about now guilt tripping them? Are you allowed to do that like a stop for Allah you don't want me to go to Hajj you stand between me and Allah's obligation to go to Hajj, all that guilt tripping doesn't work over here? Because they don't owe it to you. They don't owe it to you. And if you owe them the money, you give them the money back, too. What about long term debts that I owe? Like, I have mortgage, I have student loans, I have car payments, I have this I have that. They have to call every company and say, Hey guys, can I go to HUD?
The answer is now because these loans right now they're not mature yet they're not do what is due right now of these loans, the monthly payments, as long as you make that payment, enough payment, so that when you come back, you're not behind on your payment, you should be fine. So you cover all these payments for the time that you're leaving and coming back. But if you don't have enough money for that, that means you don't have this data, the capability of going to hedge. And he says God, and then wherever the network, I tell you call him and tell them una vaca to Dr. Rajul. And now we need to prepare an arranged provision for those for whom you must provide until you return. So the
first people are now that you owe the money and Heroku. And now more of the Heroku very bad, more of the rights of the people or the war, those are under your care. Who are these people in
your family, maybe your parents, your children, your spouse. And if you take care of orphans, for example, they're responsible for doing the same thing to anybody that is supposed to be under Financial care, you need to make sure that they have enough for you when you go and you come back again, that they're not going to be under distress, you should you should make sure that they have enough of that. Now, when we say that they have enough, obviously not necessary to live
in a luxury life, but enough based on the regular standard that they're living. Nothing much note no more notice the same thing hamdulillah and it should be enough to suffice them throughout your absence.
So basically, you leave you come back again and hamdulillah and there are some self sufficient and if they if they're going to start suffering in your absence, because you're not leave them enough provision that is your fault and you'll be held accountable. But as the head will be invalid The answer is no still valid. But definitely you're not supposed to be doing that. Carla while Ruth Duma and the home in Alba and if people voluntarily put something in your hand and your position as a trust, in this case, before you leave, you need to give all these trusts back to the people like what somebody for example, left some money with you for safekeeping or jewelry or gave you a key for
their car or their house for example. You know what I'm absent because you please take care of or something like that. All these now trust that people they have put in your hand volunteer
Clearly, you need to make sure that you give it to them before you leave.
What have they said? You know what? Don't worry, just keep it in your house with your family until I until we get back and shall i It's okay, then hamdulillah at least you've done your part. So as you can see over here, what is the principle that this, this actually paragraph has given us right now? What do you need to worry about?
Before you go to Hajj, what do you need to worry about?
The hook, the liabilities you have between you and Allah subhanaw taala and between you and the people? Why is that? Because what's the result of hijama? What is the result of Hajj inaugral? What is it exactly?
Before that, you come on, clean, clean slate wipes out everything. It's supposed to wipe out everything of your of your sins and mistakes and errors and so forth. But if you have hellhole that you owe to people, will that be actually wiped out? Who doesn't do that?
Hedge would not do that for you. So if you really want to come back with as the prophet describe Kal Mujaddid to omoide you're born again, completely with clean slate, then you're gonna have to make all this reconciliation before you go to Hajj.
Which means a person before they go to Hajj, they need to start thinking twice and thrice and keep revising this in their mind in their heart. Who am I? Today? What do I need to be in the future? Who am did I wrong in my life? What can I how can I do to you know, basically it's all about
reconciliation with Allah Subhana Allah will divert.
Obviously, in the past, going to hedge was much more important of an event than it is for us today. Why is that?
Because back then, how many times could people go to hygiene in their times, once in their lifetime or they could?
An item it's I met some people in Bosnia when I was actually involved and other places in the world as well to who they're already in their 60s and 70s. And they haven't visited Mecca.
They have not even visited Mecca. Some of them in driving distance, which means they can drive just maybe for 20 hours, 24 hours, and they will be there but they've never visited Morocco. Not because they don't want to because they are able to do Subhanallah and for us their handler in America, how often do you go Ramadan Hajj every time there's an opportunity it is before the lottery system Yanni. It was easy for people to go to Hajj hamdulillah Berman. That's why these principles that he's speaking about, don't don't inherit us so hard as they would do if someone realized this is just any once in a lifetime.
It's hit or miss opportunity for us. We know if we go to Hajj and we messed up something what do we think about although next inshallah Allah subhanaw taala. So these principles don't hit us hard because we don't we have another opportunity to redeem ourselves. But for someone who knows this could be one and all and only in their lifetime. Definitely it hits actually so hard in their hearts, specifically to reconcile between them and Allah subhanho wa Taala and also with the people
he should take with him enough lawful Halal money for going and turning without eagerness in such a way that he's able to have abundant provisions and generous
towards the destitute. So now that he spoke about your preparation before you go to Hajj. Now he says, What do you carry with you when you go to Hajj? What are you going to carry with you? The first the most important thing is what your status when old man and halal. Make sure your provision is halal. The money that you used to go to Hajj supposed to be halal,
but is there a condition of validity or condition of excellence?
What does that mean if someone spends their money from a halal investment whether they work in with river or they have for example a store that sells liquor and stuff like that and so on so they're their money is mixed right now probably if they go hedge with this money, would that hedge be acceptable? No, no, they have actually differences of opinion and some Allama they say actually it will be unacceptable like in the hamburger school is not gonna be acceptable because of the money is haram so then the practices that will be haram as well.
Either they say no, the earning is haram but the Hajj itself that they're doing is different so it will be acceptable in sha Allah to Allah but definitely is not as someone who's going with pure Halal income. May Allah make our income halal or Bananaman. So you guys call it a sauce heaven and metal holla you carry with you from his Halal income MacReady the heavy auto jury sufficient for you to go and come back again. And handler biller mean this is for us nothing to worry about no concern for us. Why? Even if you run out of cash, what do you do Gemma? You pull your your credit card
and you start using it there and it should be fine. You go you don't have that you call somebody to send the Western Union for instance, and the man is in in less than 24 hours is there in your pocket. Alhamdulillah by me there
Many, many ways for people to find a way of providing for themselves that hamdulillah but still in the past and some other people today in other countries other places, when they go to Hajj I know and I met these people as a matter of fact, I met some of these people, they go to Hajj you know, when did they go to Hajj they go to Hajj and Ramadan.
Although Ramadan is not a hot
Jonnie month, the month the month has start from where am I? So I'm from from after Ramadan.
So we're talking about the target about from Shaohua, the cardinal hedger, these are the months of hajj. But these people, they start their hard journey and Ramadan. Why is that?
Because they can't afford more than one ticket. So what do they do? They go and they save all their life savings, they put all the life saving in one journey. So they travel and Ramadan, to go to do an ombre and they stay behind.
And back in the desert was actually kind of like in terms of technical is illegal. But they stay behind. And they wait until shorewall Begin and they make their intention for hedge.
But then unfortunately, I've seen a lot of them don't have enough money for the whole state. You're talking about staying for four months, five months, probably at some times. So what do they do? They fall into of course, you know, all these any troubles of trying to find work on the side, or even actually, unfortunately, go go beg for for the money to survive. Allah Mr. May Allah make it isn't for the Mayor of London, I mean, the situation is different. But for you Hamdulillah you can easily go to Hajj and I've seen some of these people who probably you could say that it's only one time they go to Hajj ally. I remember one time, as we were doing tawaf and this old man is an older man
from Asia. And he was grabbing on our militarism, which is the space underneath the door of Aqaba. And closer 100 as well, and he was crying and weeping and I start I start doubting my intentions will lie.
I swear I was listening to his crying. I don't understand what he's saying.
But whatever it is, it seems to be coming from the heart. I start doubting myself. Why don't I can I be like this? What can my heart Subhanallah and I envied him and goodness, like why can't my heart feel feel what he's feeling right now. But don't realize panela because we have a lot of distraction in our dunya
we don't have that same desperate moment of I'm leaving the Kaaba, I will never come back again. I'm gonna die with this memory. But for us I knew when I'm leaving I'm coming back in few weeks when we're in Medina at the time Subhanallah so I'm coming back again and again and again and again. That feeling wasn't there. So you're gonna make make sure that when you prepare yourself a shallow Tara make sure that you have enough wealth and money that you take with you and you keep for the family that you leave behind you're responsible for caught up minerality tactile what does that mean? Don't be stingy. means don't leave your family just on the net account under underpinning. Like burly when
you come back there Berlino on budget this it says keep them comfortable. Keep them comfortable. He said there was also yourself keep yourself also come a comfortable don't go to Hajj and calculate everything to the penny you need to have extra money. So certain shallow to be any expand your your ability to feel comfortable being there or refundable for Cara. So you have you can have also extra to share with the poor and the destitute. Now
the Pilgrims should take with him what he needs to fix himself like a siliq comb, mirror and culture. Do you guys carry these things with you these days?
Anyone carry carries with them Kahal jar? You know what the coho jars, the koalas the college just like the mascara these days, right?
So back then it was used by men as well to the purpose of some user using the Kohala Python. And actually I used to use when I was in Medina, it looks awesome.
But I don't know about doing it these days. It will look weird. But seriously, it was it was for them. It was even treatment wasn't just a matter of purification. It was also a matter of treatment. So it carried with them. As a matter of treatment again, beautification probably the mirror of course to make sure that you look nice you groom yourself properly using the mirror and so on. Comb obviously obviously known why I miswak so basically take care of yourself grooming kit.
And now what is it hamdulillah is you can get in one single bank, you haven't small bag you have all these things, you have the razors, you have your scissors, you have your shampoo, this that all that kind of stuff, whatever you need to groom yourself on that journey and also while you're there and during the lunchtime because obviously if you're going to be traveling like for them for example, Monica Medina Tameka will take about five or six days if not a week on the road on the back of cameras. You can imagine if they live Marcia world good
By the time that I've maxed out, we're gonna look like
they need to also fix themselves prepared themselves for the journey as well to when they stay in, in, in Mecca. So again, this is for you to make sure that when you go to Hajj, you also make sure that you make you maintain healthy appearance, and you look nice. What does that mean? We're going to come to a point after the shutdown, it is not for Hajj, don't try to deliberately look and keep your looks
untidy. Like some people they say, because you're supposed to be a shyster about like dusty and disheveled. So they they deliberately mess up themselves. So they can look under the real hijab. It doesn't if it happens, you know, just by circumstance, that's fine, but doesn't mean that you go and you rub yourself in the dust and and keep your hair and all messed up and so on is not supposed to be the case. Now.
Furthermore, he should before setting out give away something to a charity that this is not necessarily something any confirmed in terms of the Sunnah. But however, it's a recommendation from the orlimar like always start your journey with a good with a good good deed. And that good is given charity so before you leave, some they say on the way out if not just the night before on the way out, why are you leaving, give some charity. So for example, when you're going to stop by the masjid put something in the account and leave or do something online or when you go to the airport, you see a box for donation, for example, put something there, and you start your journey, do an act of
And as well as higher for himself a writing beast, he must show the higher when he tends to load on it no matter how little little crate time. So when you go hajima you're gonna ride the beast like
What do you mean by the rising beats overhead.
You realize that's what it means. It doesn't mean the cameras back then. But back in the days, obviously that's how they used to love travel. So you go and you hire for yourself something that will be that will carry you throughout the journey.
Now, not so many people had those available for them. So what do they do when the hedgehog campaigns that the hedgehog missions, they prepare themselves, they prepare these these camels for the people. And then you go to the hire as you call them over here, I'll have man and that's when they pay them to ride one of their cameras. And these cameras will be prepared, well prepared and well fed to undertake that very, very difficult and perilous journey on the desert. So he says you need to make sure that you have that so what does that mean exactly? Means you your airlines, your bus your tickets, your rides, your transportation, your train all these things you need to make sure that you
have enough insha Allah to pay for these for these transportation and he says he must show to the higher what he intends to load on it that was back in the days. Why because you're going to be carrying on the back of the camera so you don't want you to kill the camera. So based on how much you carry he will actually charge you or he will tell you this is too much for the camera too hard to carry or if you're going to be carrying all that stuff. You're going to take this gamble I'm going to charge you 50 dinar for example extra for it because that camera is actually stronger as long as bigger as larger whatever that is. Nowadays word has happened to Jamal
the baddest counter
so two bags oh my god these two these bags. They look too big right now can you weigh them for example. And it wasn't there there are 50 pounds of orca Rama and Mashallah. So in this case, they will charge you for it. And you need to you need to declare what you're carrying so that at least they know actual Hamdulillah that it's safe now.
man once told YBNL Mubarak carried this letter to so and so for me, but he said, Not until I see consent from the higher Subhanallah that's part of the walk what I will do God what are their piety is like he took the baraka him Allah He took it literally. He wanted to make sure that he is transparent with the cat with the camera with the with that man. So when the man came, this is God. He said, Can you carry this letter for me? Please? My friend in Mecca? Can you carry that letter? You know for him, Please ignore what he said until I take permission from the guy because they Oh, they actually declared what I'm carrying. That's extra thing right now. I already told him what I'm
carrying with me and he approved it. Now that's an extra thing doesn't have a big weight on it. It's not much really. But just a matter of piety. It is to make sure that you know what I'm clear about what McCurry would mean, now
the Pilgrims should find a companion Rafiq, who is pious solid colors goodness and helps him in it so that if you forget something depending on will remind him and if you remember something, the companion will help him accomplish it. So So he basically he's not he spoke earlier about all the monetary provision that you need to carry with you and take care of right. But that's not what what you the only thing you need on the journey. What else do you need on the journey? You need now the social part of it right? That can be
Anisha Who are you going with nowadays? What do people look for when they go to Hajj they look for the group, who is this group, who is the leader of the group who was going in that group, they want to make sure that I'm going with people that I would love to have inshallah good companionship with them, which is why it's so hard this lottery system, our time is disrupting this, this for many, many people, because now you're going just basically on a blind date with them, basically,
you're going on Hajj, and you have no idea who is going to be with you, who's going to be with you on your bus, or being with you and your room, God knows. So therefore, it becomes very disruptive to this principle of having someone that you can trust for the majority, but you're gonna have to build this trust with these people afterwards. But if you know which group you're going, and you can tell who else is going, then in this case, it Hamdulillah that fulfills this example, he says that when you travel, you need to make sure that you're looking for somebody who's solid, Summerfield pious, righteous person who loves goodness. Why is that because that's the whole purpose of this journey
that you improve on you build your goodness helps him basically so that if you forget something, he will remind you, he will wake you up for Fudger he will remind you to do that test be on a car, he will look at the sunset somehow look at the beautiful sun, the creation of Allah subhana wa Taala He will make us look at the star and praise Allah Azza for the beauty of the sky. It reminds you if you forget something, and also if you do something good, they will just praise you for it. Marshall Zakka thank you for doing this will you remind me to do it as well too. So always encouraging each other for the fight as well. And of course, and if you try to do something wrong, he will also
remind you, you're not supposed to be doing this. You're gonna set up a haram you're going to be going to Hajj and Umrah and so on.
Or undock Asada who sub Bara and when someone starts kind of like losing their tempers, what do they do to you?
They calm you down.
It's okay, it's a we're hydrate now, Leila, it's an official, so they can calm you down, they give you a hug, they pull you away from the from the trouble, they put your 100 ease. The idea is that you need somebody who would help you make your hedge valid, and make your hedge count. And if you're going with people that will disturb you disrupt all of that for you, it's going to be disastrous. That could be the only chance for you for hutzpah, we're going to be disaster. So make sure to have good company inshallah with about a quarter an app.
And if you fear something, the companion will encourage him and if he becomes weak, the companion will strengthen him.
The group should appoint the most well mannered and gentle of them to lead them a leader is needed because people will have different views. And that cause for organization,
the leader must treat others gently do what is in their best interest and be the protector.
So is now speaking after, of course of Hamdulillah you have your company now you have many people doing together, what do we do right now? Because you have to now start work on organization. Don't just go like this. And it's commanded always that when people travel that they have a leader on that journey. They assign somebody to be the leader of that group. That's the son of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam called a Salah Salem in the Hadith that if if three people, if three people traveled on a journey together for a mural, I had a home, they need to assign somebody to be the Emir.
Why is that? Because this Emir will like he says Rahim, Allah Tala here says that this MA is supposed to be caring after them and making sure that you know what he is looking after them for their needs. And also he will be the one to make the final decision if there was any dispute or any, any kind of difference of opinion. So some people might say, well, we should actually, let's say, we should continue until we take a break and that city, some people, there's no word to tell us this way. So how do I decide what to do next? With me, says, You know what, let's do it that way. For us once he makes a decision hamdulillah everyone should obey. And also he will be the time he will
demand to announce when the Salah is gonna be when we do the karma, all this and like organizing everything for them. Again, His purpose is to the organization of the journey, not to be a supreme leader that will be will never be disobeyed. The idea is just for the sake of that journey, and once that journey is over what happens with that leadership, Gemma
says leadership is over. Once you arrive to a destination you come back from that journey. It doesn't continue afterwards and you kind of start in slave you in your own household. No, it's only just for the sake of that janitor making a shall organize now,
when one travels, he should other good words, feed others and manifests beautiful character. Most of them the clerk for traveling brings out the inner side of a person. If one maintains with character who's the help, has no personal help.
Which is which is where a person is it becomes annoyed, he will be even more well mannered when not traveling. So what he says in that somehow he says now this is for you. He spoke about the others. Now what about you? How are you going to conduct yourself on the journey? There is look when you travel should make sure that you when you speak you speak good. Try to feed other people serve other people as being the service of other people. If you
Can especially of course, if you have elderly you know, you have children, you have other people that need help and assistance with that be there be helpful. So he feed the people honestly. And instead of to manifest the beautiful o'clock person and hold on the hassle of law, and everything, again, somebody that systems to carry something for them, to help them out with something, when somebody fell ill somebody Subhanallah needs to get to pick up something for them, whatever that you can assist and help not obligation, but out of husband, Hello, and good afternoon and good manners. He says for traveling brings out the inner side of a person and that's exactly what the Prophet SAW
Selim mentioned about suffer it. And by the way, in the Arabic language, the word suffer, the words of which means traveling, was was called suffer from the word is far what is his farming and what was what is farming.
Revealing as far as revealing, as far as the morning, and when the for that woman takes her hijab becomes off, hijab becomes so full. So the word suffer because it's revealing. So what the Sufferer Reveals then what tribals repeated a man, cover and foods, it brings the real character out. When you're under under duress, under stress, it brings those who are brave out to be brave, those who are generous, those are those those that peoples of Hala in terms of prosperity and ease, they always show specific character. But under pressure
another person shows up so that's why pay when my Soumya suffer ill is very smothering us that suffer was called suffered trouble was called suffer in Arabic, because it reveals the genuine characteristics of people. So that's what he says over here. Therefore,
if one maintains good character, personal Hello, while traveling, which is, of course where a person easily becomes annoyed, because they're very agitated when you're traveling SubhanAllah. So if you can maintain first and follow on a journey, then when you are resident at home, you will be even better mannered, what amount of inshallah Autobahn Kota, like, but if someone is showing good character, then wander around in town. That doesn't necessarily mean they when they travel, they're going to be actually the same thing do. And that's why
honorable Katara della noorda, when he wanted to appoint somebody for leadership, what does he do? He asked about this individual. And if someone who knows this guy, like one of the occasions he wanted to assign somebody for an errand Iraq, because who knows this brother, who's this guy, so someone says, I know I mean, I'm a man, I know. So you ask them three questions. He says, Have you traveled with him? He goes, No. He goes, have you spent a long time with him? Like, how long have you been with them? Because not much really. Because Have you have you dealt with him in terms of financial transactions money, he goes, No, he goes, sit down, you don't know him.
These are three things could reveal who the people are. When you deal with them with money. When you spend time with them enough time to you know, they come relax with you and they start getting out for who they really are. And of course, when you travel with them. And that's why it's very important when you travel a GEMA that you'd be conscious of that, by the way that travel could be three, four hours, like what we did for the men's retreat, and I hope you guys revealed the best of your character and shouting each other. Or it could be support a long journey such as going to Hajj now.
Indeed, it is said that if a man is praised by both those, those who have dealt with him at home, and those who have accompanied him while traveling to that day doubt, his piety, mela Mecca, some of them are behind me. I mean, he should bid farewell to his companions and brothers who are not traveling and asked him to pray for him. He should set out on a Thursday morning, and after two units of prayer at home before leaving now. So in regards to of course, now the journey is about to start. It is better that it's good that you bet for everybody before you leave. And back in the days when people communities were small communities, small villages, you talking about 200 people, 300
people in one village, for example, maybe a few 1000 in a small town, and so on. So it was easy for people to do that. And I've seen in some some communities mashallah when they do that, they have nice, beautiful habits. Like in Bosnia, I remember when they were taking the people to Hajj and back then obviously, it wasn't easy for people to go to Hajj in Bosnia, because they were under a communist regime and all that stuff and so on. But still people still go to hedge, but they don't have the law. When things open for them. They start going more. So I remember first time I've seen the hedge caravan as it was leaving our town. They brought up in one or two big buses. So when the
hedgehog came the family and the whole almost the whole town came down to bid them farewell as they're willing to hedge. And the beautiful thing is, as they were leaving, they are used to make beautiful champions of tech rattle aid. So they go Oh ALLAH. Akbar Allah. Akbar, Allah
Akbar, Akbar Wa Hill Hamed as the people actually start to huddle when the busses start leaving, everybody's just kind of like doing their tech right and did the buses disappear and then everybody goes back home. What a beautiful sight was like wow this is interesting the whole committee is engaged in sending people off to Hajj but for us handler because our society is less attached like this, we are more individualistic as a community as individuals in the community so that kind of spirit has was lost unfortunately, we barely actually do that for our family members,
let alone neighbors or even actually friends now.
He then bid farewell to his family and property and recess in their to their vacations and remembrance before that actually forgot to mention about traveling on Thursday. Is there any special any virtual for that? Well, Hadith kababayan Malik inside Buhari actually is there that the Prophet SAW Selim Tala Maharaja FISA for him very famous, like the Prophet Salah Salem when he travels, he rarely leaves on a day on Thursday. Like he begins his jersey journey on Thursday, I tried to find from the Allama if there was any specific virtue for that particular choice and from the Prophet sallallahu sallam, but none mentioned anything specific. Nothing specific was was mentioned from the
Prophet so I said I'm like when the Prophet was asked about fasting Mondays and Thursdays. What did he say? He said, because these are days when a man raised Allah subhanaw taala I want my this to be when I'm when I'm still very bad when fasting. So whenever he first Mondays and Thursdays, but why traveling on Thursday, particularly we don't know. So there is no specific or than he used to that Salah Salem, maybe it's convenience. So do you have to travel on Thursday, you don't especially now that our schedule for travels are different. If you're going to travel for work, for example, travel for recreation, or anything like that. So if you're limited by time, you don't have to switch all
your calendar to just to travel on Thursday to meet that condition. However, if you are flexible, and you can tap on Thursday, so you can meet that son of the Prophet SAW Allah Salah then Bismillah Viet do it now.
When he when he exits the house and upon mounting, these invocations are well known and can be found in many books that talk about the rituals of pilgrimage. The same applies to all the rituals like entering the state of ritual, consecration,
the circum violation and running, running between stuff and mandala and standing reproof, at Ottawa. Once you recite the prescribed words, remember it says God invocations the word and observe the etiquettes of those rituals. All of that can be read about in the books of jurisprudence fiqh, where it has been dealt with. Lastly, so hear him out loud I did not mention many details over he said look, when you travel there is a lot of car and drive that you need to remember. Make sure that you memorize them and carry them with you if you want to study them on the way to Rama or Hajj. So there are there are that needs to be said when you travel when you go up mountains go down into the
valley. There's lot needs to be done. When you make the photo off, do your say and other etiquettes that require when you enter Mecca or Medina, he says you need to look for these others and etiquettes go and study them in books of filth, because here the subject of this book is only just to speak about the spirit and the secret of hedge May Allah subhanaw taala give us the opportunity and the ability to visit the house sell but I mean, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala was able to go to head sooner Allah We ask Allah subhana weathermakers among those that have that hajj is concerned Breweriana bulanan Allahu Taala Shall we stop here and next we can show will continue to Hajj?
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa sallahu wa salam Baraka Vieira, Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salam, the Sleeman Kathira to mama bad so we are still actually studying Hadith number 15 I know you surprised this is the third night actually that we're studying this hadith because Hala the topic is very, very deep and very important. This hadith is hate Abby right or the Allah animal doc Carla SallAllahu wasallam mankind human of Allah he will Yama will after Fela confer an outdoorsman, the one who believes in Allah and then on the final day on the last day, human below the folio concern oh yes man speak well, or remain silent. Woman can human of Allah Allah Allah
Assalamu alaikum Jarrah, if someone believes in Allah and the final day on the last day, let them you can Jarrah be generous to their neighbors, women can rely heavily on will occur if you believe in Allah and the Last Day for LUCAM life I'll be generous to your guests. So this hadith really is more as you can say it's three Hadith in one single statement
so that's why we'll be actually covering it you know, for three nights. So we've covered the first part which is basically speaking well or remain silent and tonight inshallah Allah we will continue with part two and that is speaking about the neighbors. Our discussion is going to start in sha Allah azza wa jal on page
I'm going all the way there area, so the bottom of 221 where it says the second thing which the prophet has commanded the moment on is similar go for Bismillah was sunnah to cinema.
so the author Ibn Rajab Rahim Allah He mentions. The second thing which the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam commanded them to be known in this hadith is that they should generously honor neighbors. In some versions, there is prohibition of harming neighbors harming neighbors. Mmm Raja Rahim Allah does not have the law so to summon so let me Raja Rahim, Allah Tala. He is now speaking about this meaning of being kind and generous to your neighbors, by speaker about the opposite of it. He says that other generations expanded that generosity and the other side meaning generosity of your neighbors is being saved from your heart.
You're generous with your neighbors, if you're truly keep them safe from your heart from the heart. How is that? Let's see what he says here.
Harming neighbors is forbidden, because causing anyone harm without right is forbidden now. But with respect to neighbors, it is more is more strenuously forbidden. So harming people in general is haram doesn't matter if they're close to you or otherwise. But for neighbors, seven actually is now more severe in terms of punishment.
In the two Sahib books there is
there is from Heaven Massoud Radha Lowen, from the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam that he was asked, which is the most serious wrong action. He's on alone Islam said that you should regard another as being
being light or a partner of Allah while he created you. Someone said then after that, what he said salAllahu alayhi salam that you should kill your child out of fear that he will eat with you. Someone said then after that what he said something along Islam that you should commit adultery with your neighbor's wife. Now this hadith salva Muslim, the Prophet says Ron was asked about some of the worst sins anyone can ever commit. And the brothers are some give them in this in this categories who the the worst and anyone can ever commit as what to associate part of the loss of 100 and worship that should be lost.
The second thing he says that you kill your children out of fear of poverty.
Like you know, nowadays, people what they do, there's a subtle they call a little cafe. It's an Arabic language called word word, which means when you kill your children after they're born, but, um, which was a practice by the Arabs at that time before Islam. But nowadays, they practice a subtle form of Word, which is basically preventing having children out of fear that you know what, it's not going to be enough. We don't have enough money to feed these kids. It's very common actually practice these days, especially if they want to maintain a specific lifestyle. So they want to have kids because if we have more kids, we're not going to have enough money to live this kind of
like lifestyle. That's a subtle form of word. But the third one which is related to the subject of a hair color, and to Zanni holiday Togetic that a person commits adultery or fornication with the lady of your neighbor. Now the Arabic words Halle letter Jeric. Hey, the translation says the wife of your neighbor, but the Halina is actually a female of your neighbor, which means it could be their wives could be their daughter to be someone that is actually related to them. Zina, whether it's adultery or fornication is a sin, no doubt about it. Added to that sin, that you betray your neighbor and your neighbors trust. That's even worse.
It's horrible. Unfortunately, in this culture that we live in today, and in the non Muslim culture, it's all over the place. There is no shame
For people who do not unfortunately, but most of them is to be aware of that. And to be careful with this, regardless of the circumstances. And unfortunately, you hear stories here and there for mistakes that could happen because people they just kind of drop their guards down. But you need to respect the boundaries and respect the hukou and the rights of your neighbor. You need to make sure that you never harm your neighbor in the least, especially in regards to you know, their families. So that is actually the next hottie that you will see. They're all about the same concept in which he speaks about different ways of people harming their neighbors, different ways of people harming
their neighbors. So some of them I wanted to I want to ask you to go down a little bit what it says Imam Muhammad and Al Hakim.
So the author immunological continuous Rammohan Imam Ahmed Ramallah and Al Hakim
an edited one also from a hadith of Abu Hurayrah Ravi Lowen. And he said, someone said, messenger of allah sallallahu sallam, such and such a woman prays at night and fasts in the daytime, but in her tongue, there is some sharpness with which she harms her neighbor. He someone lonesome said, there is no good in her. She is in the fire. Someone said to him, such and such another woman Woman preys on me only the obligatory prayers, and she fasts, only Ramadan and she gives sadaqa with portions of cottage cheese, and she has nothing but that but she does not harm anyone. He SallAllahu sallam said she is in the garden. So what's the meaning of this honey? The very so the prophets Allah Sam was
told about two examples in the community. Two ladies, one of them Mashallah. She, they spoke highly of her Eva, like she is religious. She prays the hedgerow she does this, she does that very religious person. What I can add to that, you know, guarana. she just, she unfortunately has her tongue out the biller is, is sharp, she always hurts her neighbors. The professor said, No use of her brother, she's in Jana.
What does that mean, as a man, if you remember, we were talking about difference between being religious and being spiritual.
You're not good until you become both religious and spiritual. Because some people might be religious like this woman, but they're not spiritual at all, that religiosity does not translate into good manners at UCLA. So what's the diff? What's the what's the point of it, the provinces have declared she has been Johanna.
Now, and that happens a lot because I know Subhan Allah with all due respect, and specifically when it comes to dealing with family issues and in laws issues, you have a lot of people talking about, you know, their their daughter in law or their mother in law or whatever. They said that she's religious. She even pass Mondays and Thursdays and she does Quran every day. She does the hedge with every night. But Allah must and she hurts her relatives and other actually family members the same thing. The other example the Prophet Salah Salem was told about a lady who doesn't really have much of a bad practice, but Alhamdulillah she maintains the bare minimum she prays her for Salah you know
she fasted Ramadan does the Ibadah what are some of the COVID I thought in the Arabic language here, they translate that at the cottage cheese, I don't know why.
Back then out of that cottage cheese, but something similar to that. So you guys know you can relate to it. Somebody who can relate to that, like basically into an insignificant stuff. That's what it means. Whatever left over of her the method that she used to make an adjustment to make sure we just give that away. So nothing significant. The Professor Sam said, she will be in Jana.
Whereas a manager Ma, you need to be careful, being religious versus being spiritual. Your religiosity should translate into spirituality, otherwise, you will still be in danger. Because it's not it's supposed to make you a spiritual person and a righteous person. May Allah make us some of the moral Bananaman. Now, so there is another stories are interesting. So we probably heard before, I want you to hear it again from Imam Ibrahim Allah al Hakim, continue.
And Hakim needed a Hadith from Abu Hanifa
said a man came to the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam complaining of his neighbor. So he said to him are goods through your goods in the street so goods away means actually belong to your stuff in the house, get them out, put them in the in the street.
So people pass by and would curse him. He came to the province analyzer and said, Wait a minute, I think actually there's a Mr. Translation of it. So what happens to this man came to complain to the Prophet saw some about his neighbor he goes, it keeps hurting him
I got a solid is mine ever captured me so much I can't live in peace because of that man. So the Prophet says, I'm told this man, he says, Why don't you take your luggage your stuff and put them in the streets? The man didn't know why the purpose is I'm told them to do that. He didn't know why. But if the professor just that for me, I'll do it. By the way back then didn't have any martial law 18 wheelers, loads of furniture, simple stuff. So they carry their stuff. He puts him in the street, he brought his family, they sat on the nether stuff, and he's waiting for the purposes. And I'm command Yeah. And what do I do next? Now, I did that. So guess what happened?
The neighbors, they start coming by and says, Well, what are you doing? What's going on? Because I don't know. Just complain to the professor about my neighbor who keeps hurting me. And he told me to do this. And the people just of which neighbor, that neighbor, I never go to that neighbor called baccala. Are you this your dad, and everybody started kind of like, you're insulting that neighbor for hurting his neighbor. So the point was made very clear. That neighbor, that neighbor, the bad neighbor basically came to this guy, he goes, could you please move your stuff back home, you're Himachal I swear, I'm not going to hurt you again.
So the problem was making a point for them over he said, like, look, you can do this. There'll be as the other community punishment.
It's a collective right now. Yeah. And the effort from the whole community to say, How dare you do this to your neighbor, now? Keep going.
so he came to the Prophet Satsang and said, messenger from what have I not met with?
What have I not met with from people? He asked, What have you met with from them? He answered, they're cursing me. He said, I'm gonna curse to you before people did. So I think there's good there is mistranslation about the Hadith, the story itself, the one who was cursed is the one that was hurting actually the neighbor. So there's something missing in the transitional base. I think that treasure is clear to you in shallow terracotta Allah. I just want you to know that Mr. Raja Rahim Allah has talked about JIRA. And that the JIRA is now that when it comes to being generous to the Quran, you need to first of all to make sure that they're safe from your evil. All kinds of evil,
whether your tongue, your actions, your behavior, parked in front of the driveway, blocking their,
their mailbox, your trash keeps flying in front of the front yard, even to the fact that if your grass actually is becoming to
become long and you're not maintaining, you know the yard, that is also hurting your neighbor as well too. All these things count as being actually not being good neighbor.
And you need to maintain that make it better Shala Tabata for them. Let's move on to Shala xojo When he says what the ayat called, as for honoring neighbors before the IRA before the IR s for honoring neighbors and treating them well, that is commanded. So he spoke about treating them ill is haram, as he described. So now when the Prophet says treat them well and be generous with their neighbors, this is how it should look like now. I'm the exalted easy, says, Although we live in a shutdown regime, who are going
to Riku Be sure you
won't be Nova li the Santa Wahby won't be the will be the new Korova one year at
Mercer Keane. One Masaki new one Jerry, Jerry the deme kotoba. One One
June June been Juneau viewers saw Phoebe from Berlin, Germany, Belgium engine v ouabain. Is be warm,
I imagine in
your head boomin can
feel cool to the hole for who
worship Allah and do not attribute partners to him. Be good to your parents and relatives, and to orphans and the very poor and to neighbors who are related to you and neighbors who are not related to you and to your companions and travelers and your slaves. Allah does not map anyone vain or boastful. So in this ayah, Allah subhana wa Taala speaks about five categories that you are required to maintain a son and being on demand good and good treatment. The first one is actually is your real relatives who speaks here about your parents and
your family and your relatives in general. The second one, those who are in need, such as the orphans, and the Misaki, and the poor, and then the third category, those who have neighborhood with you, they're a neighbor in kinda like in a in a kind of relationship with in that regard. So who are these people? Let's talk about the third one, you go to the third those who have right because
third, those who have a right because of their proximity, and the interactions between them, and he categorized them as three types on GRE, the kuruva Algerie, Juno, Juno V, and as Asahi bieniemy Na, so three categories. He's going to explain each one of them now, right right now, what's the difference between Algeria, the Cordoba will Gerald Janab God,
the commentators disagree on the interpretation of the IRA. Some of them says St. Algerie. They will Cordoba is the neighbor who is related. And Jerry
and Jerry, Jeremy,
Jeremy now is the unrelated person. So that's the first interpretation, which is actually the most common one, the most common Algerian CORBA agressive in the world. CORBA it means Kaurava they say corroborated them, which means basically a relative, like you have your brother living next to you, or your your in law, like live to you for the next year. So you have a relationship with them right now. So those are the first category. The second one is L Jheri curl. Jarrell Juno. So now this person, the only reason that you're required to take care of them because of proximity. So there is no blood relationship that you owe them. There is no Corrado that you owe them to be to maintain
between you and them. But you owe them the right of proximity being close to you. They could be Muslims or otherwise. So in this case, they're still your neighbors. Now,
some of them consider wives as being included in a jury the kuruva but some include them among Algerian.
Jeremy, what do you guys think of that edema?
So you have just your neighbor, right?
Well, the most common translation or actual interpretation is that the wife falls under the category it sounds like they say,
was so heavy, a sizable jump, because it says consult companion. But I would say we're not going to include the wives in this interpretation over here. It speaks about just neighbors. That's it. Now. Some include the traveling companion among Algerian. Joining me. Now it has been narrated that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say in his application, I seek refuge with you from an evil neighbor, to my residence for the neighbor in the desert changes, because they are no man's. So this is something we're interested in auto understand whenever you want to buy a house, or you know what we'd like to have a permanent resident rental house, for example, what do you need to look for?
What is the first thing that you need to pay attention to? Is your ma? The neighbors right? How's the neighborhood? How safe is it? Who is next to you? Who's behind us in front of you? Are they going to be allowed to do this or didn't write the professor some says when you seek refuge with ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada from an evil of a neighbor who's to your residence. Why? Because these people, they have permanent residence next to you, for in the oven, a general barrier to how well they're never in the desert, we'll just move because back then they were nomads, they only could get together, they build their tents, anywhere based on the pasture and the season. Once the pastor was
gone, and they said they need to move. They take the tents off, and they move somewhere else. So if you go somewhere else, you're probably not next to somebody else. They're not gonna be the same person next to you. If they were bad to you. Nowadays, that example, that example of the general bad idea, the neighbor, the desert neighbor, you could actually you could use that for what?
Apart not apartments, not apartments, traveling.
When you travel with people, and you're gonna have to be with them for a week or two Hajaj for example, your your roommates, your roommates in the hotel, for example. These are neighbors next to you, right? How long are they going to stay there in that room? How are you going to stay in that room? Not that long. So you still owe them hack of neighborhood, but definitely not like the hug of the neighborhood of someone who's permitted next to you. Then your residence. So that's the minimum that now some of them said Jared koruba Is the Muslim neighbor and Jared Dunleavy is the cafe neighbor.
In the Muslim of buzzer there is a marfo Hadith from Java. And he says Mark for me is the prophets have mentioned that now.
There are three
Types of neighbors, the neighbor who has one, right. And he is the least of the neighbors in terms of rights, the neighbor who has two rights, and the neighbor who has three rights, who is the best of neighbors in the terms of rights.
As for the one who has one, right, it is the neighbor who associates a partner with Allah, of the people of the book, who is unrelated. He has a right so this is basically a non Muslim was not relative do. Now,
he has the right due to
being being unable or busy. So basically, the right that you owe them is the right of being a neighbor. Now, as for the one who has two rights, it is the Muslim neighbor, who has the right due to him, because he's a Muslim, and the right due to being a neighbor, and he's not relative to theirs, not all others do. Now, as for the one who has three rights is the Muslim who is relative, for he has a right to do to him, for his Islam, a right due to him for his being a neighbor, and a right you to him, because he's a relative, this is very clear right now, by the way, although in terms of being Marfa or otherwise, is an explanation from the sahabi. That's a disputable thing, or
from the words of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. So now we recognize these three categories. So you have a neighbor next to you who's not Muslim, and it's not relative. And that's the one that has the least of the hook and the rights because the narrative and the director of Islam, so they only have the right of being unable to the second category, you have a Muslim whose neighbor to you, but it's not relative. So that's the second category you need to maintain to hug for them. The hug of being Muslim and being your neighbor. And the third category, you have someone who's next to your neighbor, who's relative to you, and Muslim, of course, obviously. So the three o'clock that you
have to owe them, you have actually to maintain with them. So these are the three different categories of the hijab. Now, who deserves the best of your companionship when it comes to neighbors? Is it the one next door or your relative who is maybe at the end of the block?
So if I have next to me, if I have a non Muslim neighbor right now, who's not relative to me, right next door, and my brother lives for example, five, seven doors away or houses away from me, who has more hat on Miyajima? What do you guys think?
Let's say what Mr. Baier inside Bukhari, where it says, Al Bukhari, the same page and say, Hello Bukhari, that is that is
in Sahih al Bukhari there is that I shall not the other one said, I said, messenger of allah sallallahu sallam, I have two neighbors, too. Which of them? Should I give a gift? He answered to the one whose door is closest to you? So the one was closest to you. So which one would you give? Would you give first the non Muslim neighbor or your brother five or seven doors away?
Which one is your ma? Which one? Know your brother?
Your brother, not the neighbor next door wide with Aisha, she asked the question the neighbors next to her what what have equal rights?
Those neighbors next door they'll have equal rights. So which one should I give you a Rasul Allah give the one next door. But if they if she had a relative few doors away, he would say I'll give you the one actually more related to you. So you give your brother because he has more rights than you and then you give the next door neighbors in that regard. So that's something to keep in mind. So again, how far should we calculate neighbors? Let's see what he says next. It probably have the right acting first generation sent the furthest limit of being neighbor is 40 houses and some set a circle of 40 houses on every side. What does that mean? Is your map
also valid right?
So that's basically more of like organizing of any Hoa is aware. Literally. That's what the provinces are speaking about that your neighbors are 40 houses here for the houses there for us it's fun for us back and if you look at all of that, we'll talk about maybe the entire Valley Ranch area. So last queerness is considered one neighborhood valances one neighborhood camping hollows one for example section that neighborhood and so on. So it's about four it definitely the element they said is not any Hadith authentic from the Prophet says it's a 40 but their estimation is actually 40 houses. Also keep in mind back in the days for houses and this direction or that direction. How far
in terms of distance would that be a demand?
Not far, few yards away. Nowadays Mashallah.
40 houses will be what in San Antonio roll.
The kind of Texas houses sizes the baraka Rahmani so it's a little bit different but that is the concept is understood that when it comes to neighborhood, it's not just the people sitting right living next to you. It goes beyond that to 40 actually here and there and there are directions. At least we understand now that even the concept of HOAs and the concept of making any collective effort as one community and neighborhood is also Islamic. So you guys need to make sure that you're participating you're also your home Association inshallah Tabata Kota Allah to improve the quality of your neighborhoods and making sure to maintain their health in sha Allah Tabata Katana, now,
inshallah next week we will continue with Allah with with more on the neighbors and we'll talk about the generosity towards the dive in sha Allah Allah and Degas Zack Manohar ceramic rahmatullah wa barakato question answer will be after Saturday. Shan Shan if you guys wait for a second at the sister inshallah there's a smooth pleases akmola The sister Shall I move to the sexual inshallah first
