Mashallah muramasa to Hakuna Matata Hakuna Matata lalala por que la de la la la madrugada la MADI brothers and sisters today as we speak right now and as you guys are attending Petaluma another great event is happening somewhere else in this world. And that is in Mecca. As we speak right now, all the Hajaj, regardless when they have arrived into Mecca, and when they're going to be arriving later, they're getting ready. They're getting ready for the journey alive, explore life changing experience. It's a lifetime experience, even after Hajj. And that is the occasion of Hajj. Tomorrow,
tomorrow, Saturday, is your material, the eighth of the ledger. And the eighth of the hedger is officially the first day of Hajj.
So people what they do on this day just so that we can share with them, some of the emotions, to share with them some of the experiences that they go through the Hajaj on the eighth day, they start now going all of them to the same site. And that is a minute. So whether they stayed in Mecca before, are they coming from overseas, or coming from out of Mecca from whoever they are, they will be moving all together into the same space. And that is into the camps of Mina. What is the point of that day? Back in the days when arafa was not equipped with all the resources that we have today such as water and shelter and food and so on. The Hajaj will spend the eighth day of the hedger in
Mina, getting ready for a very long day, which is a day of arafah. So they bring water so that they make sure that they have enough for the entire journey for those two days together. And then they also make sure that their camels have enough water. And that whole concept of quenching the thirst is called Korea. That's why the eighth day is called yo materia that they have quenching the thirst. So people they just cannot get ready for the next day. And Hajaj as the Prophet sallallahu wasallam did in his journey. He stayed in men and he prayed door on time to Raka and he prayed the answer on time to Raka then he prayed megagrip on time three Raka then he prayed Russia on time to rock and he
spent the night there. So what the law he was allamani all the way until the following day, which is the morning of arafah they prayed for their own time. And then they start marching to the day of alpha to the camp and the size of alpha. So tomorrow, you shall start seeing all the Hajaj coming together in one spot. Not so many people pay attention to that day. But there is a day when people now they realize they're getting ready to start dropping all the loads that they've been carrying throughout their life, probably throughout the year if they came for the hedge the year before. And now this is the time for them. This would be the chance to start dropping all the load that it's
carrying, that they've been carrying over the shoulder over their back and they drop it there for the sake of Allah zildjian.
This is the day when people they sit down and plan for the next day. They start counting their efforts and their deeds. They start reviewing with themselves. This is a day when people they just kind of start as they pray. And when they put metabisulfite ROM they realize this is the seriousness of the journey. This is a day when people start thinking about the past and what they have done. This I think they were proud of it or not. So therefore the next day when it starts, they have already completed their list and they know what they will be asked Allah subhana wa Taala for in terms of good in terms of rewards and terms of hierarchy and ask Allah Subhana whether for
forgiveness from things that they feel ashamed of and think they believe that they have messed up in their lives.
The Day After Tomorrow is going to be in Charlotte, Florida. That's Sunday for us over here. And on Sunday, the hajjaj will be in the plains of Africa. The plan of arafa is very open space.
Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he marched all the way there in the morning and he came right outside out of our territory. There he waited Salatu Allahu wa salam O Allah until it was noon time, which is basically the temple door is the one when there's a wild time started which is the time for Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam he gave a football. A very, very famous quote in our history, known as
the farewell football in that federal football Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he spoke clearly. And he told the people in that car and got that gathering he says color is small mini Listen to me, says lol Lila Alka combat the army hada it proudly that I'm not going to see you next season.
Which means he's telling them already that this could be the last time you will see me hear
of us in history had a lot of the people who come to Mecca. They come from outside Mecca.
Historians Muslim historians and alumna of Sierra they say over 100,000 came that day or that had season something unheard of in the Arabian Peninsula. Because the prophets are submitted very public and to everybody whoever is capable of coming for HUD should come and join me.
And he said who do anumana seeker can come and learn your monastic? Your rites of Hajj from me Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam was getting them ready. And he gave them that statement that Listen to me carefully, because this might be the last time you will see me alive and that they are sort of Lucha Salalah Salaam gave a message not just for them a message for the entire human race.
A message that it's all about the meaning of being a human being.
If you check the clock and the manner that were laid into that football that the prophet SAW son was given, they were universals universal etiquettes and as love and relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala your relationship with your fellow human beings, your relationship with your family and your spouse, your relationship in general, in all aspects, amazing, amazing message. No wonder at the end, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to the world to the people, he told them on a valuable liver shahidullah. Those who are present over here deliver this message to those who are absent. And that message has been going on forever.
For the past 1400 years until it arrived in our day in our time. Unfortunately, when we look at this, the the message the Prophet sallallahu Sallam delivered on that day seems to be some sort of kind of disconnect between what the profits or loss Adam has given that day. And a lot of the practice that people they go through and even among the Muslim community, there's a huge disconnect between the teachings of that message. And what we do today. And Hajj is a constant reminder for all of us. It's a constant reminder for all of us. It's a revival of these of this message of Rasulullah sallallahu and to the oma. And I wonder, I wonder how many of us, they make it an obligation upon
themselves. Not a obligation from the Prophet but an obligation in general upon yourself. How many of us during the Hajj season on arafa, they go and they look for that football?
And they read it? And they study it, probably even teach it to their children. Look what the professor said, How often do you read that football?
That's like a constitution for mankind.
This is like a roadmap for people how they should live their lives. Can you imagine that could be the last message the Prophet has given the oma has given the world, it must be the most valuable, it must be the center of the entire message. This is a message and this is a hook that I want. And I need each and every one of us here to go back and look it up. Read it.
make this an obligation upon you, every single year, at least once every single remind yourself for that period again, and again. And again. Because the Prophet sallallahu wasallam says, We will live a shahidullah those who are absent, deliver this message to those with those who are present, deliver the message to those who were absent. We were absent, who were absent that day. But those who have been there they delivered the message of the law and until it was recorded and documented in books of Hadith, and books of seer.
If it wasn't delivered to you, you have access to it. And it should truly go and look for it because the prophets of Assam said, go and learn this. Learn from the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam alright so tomorrow and after tomorrow as you get yourself ready for the for the raid. And worrying so much most likely about where you're going to be praying with solo should be choosing what kind of clothes you're going to be wearing and above.
All when and where and how am I going to do my code here?
How about you focus on the main message
have already put some effort in trying to understand what is this hash is all about.
And how about we go back again to the message that the hedge of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam when he migrated from Mecca to Medina, the only time he went to Hajj when he migrated from Mecca to Medina sallallahu wasallam How about we go back there and see what was the summary of the message of Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam as a Muslim, this is your summary.
This is should be actually the again the roadmap for your life. You look at what the prophet how he is summarize all or the concept and the message of Islam because I know a lot of us have hamdulillah we worry so much about doing things right I'm Allah bless your mala reward you for that. But in the process of doing right, you need to focus on priorities. And sometimes the priorities on not necessarily in doing how many records, how many sooner Can you do it, or how long it should be in the citation, as much as the quality that comes from the heart. And they will learn the message of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam from
Allah, Allah da, the hook buddy gave Salawat the law was alamanda Day is a historical football, you make sure that you go and study that.
Then the next day, they stay there on arafa, the hedges they will stay there and honor for the entire day, all the way until the sun goes down. Once the sun goes down, they start preparing themselves for the next part of the journey. People they go out altogether. And I don't know how many of you have seen that site. I've seen that handler multiple times. It's a site that you can't really describe to people by words. And honestly, when you watch it online, or you watch it on TV, it doesn't give her a hug of that site. And that ambience when you be when you're there. It's not even close.
Until you go and you see it yourself. I remember the days every time when I go to Hajj and handle our blessings. And, and, and the nirma of going there and making sure that I walk I walk from alpha to minute, instead of taking the buses, there's always that bridge that comes from over overpass of the pedestrians highway. And somehow I always go and stop there. Because that bridge leads to the same the same highway of pedestrians, the judge is just standing there. Looking over the crowd, you look from the right and the left, front and the back panela waves of human beings
waves of white crumbs.
You can even see the end of it, whichever direction that you look for. And as you just look there and it's still moving in motion.
And they are an all in motion. And they're all unified in one thing as well. That is even the chanting even if they don't speak Arabic.
They still chant the same thing. Love bellick Allahumma love bake in the service. Our Lord, we're coming to your service Allah. So they all keep repeating this over and over and over and over again. That is a sight of Allah is where you truly you feel that your heart now comes into the moment of
realizing that you're one of all these people and can you imagine with all these people are asking Allah subhanho wa Taala for whatever they're asking for. Allah Xhosa knows each and every one of them and he responds to each and every request from all these people.
That is a day when you realize the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala
no wonder that they in Islam is considered also one of the greatest days
when Allah tala and one day he was asked, he was told by a Jewish man from Medina. He said, Yeah, I mean, he told me there's an idea in your book and the Quran. If this was revealed to us, the Jewish people would have made the day on the relation to be read day like a festivity. Because which I are talking about, said Allah, tala Cadena
the ayah what Allah Subhana speaks about the completion of this Deen what man to Allah community and perfected this blessings upon you what to do to local Muslim Medina and we are pleased with Islam as it was presented to you. Amen. He said what I know when that when that was revealed, and it is already a day for us. It was revealed on Friday, when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was on arafa during the hot season. So he The point is
a celebration for the completion of the message of Allah subhanho wa Taala to the world. So that is a day when Allah azza wa jal, he calls upon the angels to come and see what are these people looking for? What what are they doing over here? And Allah knows the answer, but he wants to he wants to the angels to pay attention to this.
His mother Abadi, what are they What are they want over here. So you're up there asking for forgiveness.
Tikkun mercy from you.
And then Allah subhanho wa Taala would say that we should become unaffordable for too long. You'll be my witnesses that have forgiven them all their sins.
And even if there are amongst them there'll be people who are not necessarily as sincere. But you know what Allah subhana wa does Mercy is for everybody will include them as one.
It will include them. That is that that's why that day is considered a great day. For us here, we're not going to hedge you make sure to fast that if you haven't missed any of the days that before the weekend is coming. You make sure to do so it's Saturday and Sunday Yamato Ando Marfa. If you can't do these two days, then don't miss the most important of all these days. And that is your motto on Sunday. Make sure that you fast and make your family fast with you and have inshallah louder, liftoff together.
And when you do so you make a lot of them.
Because a professor Sam said, fasting this day of arafah will explain the sins of two years previous and coming to have the opportunity for sins to be forgiven. Just by fasting one single day. After that day, comes Yamanaka they were the Hijaz they all come in one single day to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala in a variety of Riba that, so they go and they make the offer on the cover. They offer their sacrifices, the other hand heady. And they go on, they throw the jamara, specifically, the word the only the first jamara. They do that, and then they shave their heads, and then they go out of the restaurant, and they celebrate their age. With the copyright law, a court of law, a court
of law or law, in the law, allow a court of law Aqua, vanilla ham, praising Allah subhanho wa Taala for the blessing and the nirma for being among those who've been blessed to be in touch for the next two or three days depends on how long they're going to stay afterwards, the Hijazi will be going back to spend the 19 minutes. And the next day they do the Jamaat again. And again and again. Now these are just simple activities that Hajaj will do. And that is for them to experience that. For us staying here behind, we're not going to hedge if we couldn't be there with them, you know, physically, at least in spirit by asking each and every one of us to go back again and read about
the journey of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and read about what but the law that hope by the prophets, Allah, Allah has them has given on that day. It's a very crucial, a very important football and I asked him each one of you to make an effort this week in the shallow the Baraka with Allah to make it happen. akuto kolyada was taught through law the money will come
through in order for him.
If you can have all the brothers please if you could, because come forward, Zack will occur for all the girls in the front and just so we can have enough space for everybody within the larger please come forward Zack
Alhamdulillah horrible alameen wa sallahu wa salam wa barik ala nabina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman kathira my bad about Allah Now that we know how the Hajj looks like in terms of practice, but what is the essence of it? For me, and for those who are going there for Hajj, what is the essence of Hajj that I need to experience I need to think about as I started coming closer and closer to celebrating the reading Sharla zildjian. Because it seems that when people think of their aid, they only think of a celebration. Again, they don't think what's what are they exactly what celebration is all about? If we look at hedge, and I mentioned that in many, many
different times, patch is nothing but commemorating the legacy of one of the greatest ambia of Alaska, Virgil and Mussolini. And that is a Brahim.
It's commemorating the legacy of Rahim Ali Salaam Hodges, in an essence is more it's more of an interfaith experience.
Like, you know, reminding all of us, Muslims, Christians and Jews of the legacy of Ibrahim alayhis salam, that's a great start to teach people about Hajj is all about what Ibrahim did.
He was the one with his son who raised the foundation of the Kaaba and we're going to make the walk around the house, the same house Ebrahim la Salaam raised the foundation for maybe not the actual structure, but it was there. And we also do our salatu salam to look at in behind the mahkamah running the statue Brahim la salon. We do the side between Safa and Marwa again, because that was the legacy of his household. This was his wife. And we do also the Jamaat is the story of Ibrahim alayhis salaam with the shaytan and that site and even our other hand our sacrifice the legacy of Rahim Allah is Allah Subhana Allah when you look at the look at all of this, you will see that there
is no connection over here. What is that connection? A lot of people they come to me and asked me this question, why do you have to do a walk around the cabin? anyway? What is the signal
consists of that. And what is the significance of kissing a hug or a stone? What is the significance of running between two mountains? Why do we throw seven papers? Why this and why that's valid we look at last and these questions, what is exactly is going through the minds of a lot of these people. They're trying to understand a justification they want to have a mental justification for that. And there is no doubt there is no doubt we can find that we can give you to them if this to them. But the main thing that they miss when they ask all these questions, again goes back to the legacy of Rahim Allah Islam, and what was his main legacy is called Allah hora boo hoo Aslam Allah
Islam curable Allah when Allah subhana wa tada Brahim submit yourself, Abraham. He said, I submit to the Lord of the Lord of the worlds.
He didn't even ask for what, how long? When? How? It didn't even ask that question. Allah says submit yourself to me, is it I submit myself to the world I mean,
one of the biggest problems we have in our time, you know, I do a lot of counseling between husband, wife, families and so forth. panela a lot of our problems in our households comes back from that same problem. Because husband, wife, one of them or both of them, they do not submit themselves to the commands and of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. Even when you tell them you can't do this part, Allah, Allah Rasool. They have their own justification.
And we leave it to people to make their own things, guess what happens? They get divided.
Because we have our own opinions on things. But when we all submit, the law surgeon and we all make this as a point of reference for us. It all goes back to what a lot what is Allah subhana wa Tada. And how the prophet SAW some done it if this is how we live our life, then I'll tell you that you will get that piece that Allah promised. And that's exactly the essence of Hajj. All of these rituals might not make sense to many of us. But you know what the prophet SAW some did it he did, would for sure, and he will forever for reverence. And with that, it brings some highlight great joy to the hearts of many people when they come back from Hajj and they don't tell you how they did that
or how they did this. They come back with an experience they come back with a feeling that they can describe my words. Why is that? Because of this submit to this to this they'll get the results and that says peace and tranquility in the heart so it was colossal hard to give us all this peace and tranquility. No horrible al amin and ask Allah to make us among those who listen to the speech and follow the best of it. Allahu Allah.
