hamdulillah Isla is niram
Al Hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah, Camden County, Ebony, Allah Bullock,
salam, ala rasulillah. hawala, Ali, he was so
at hamdulillah. We've gathered here today, as you all know, to do a brief hedge class. And this is obviously not the time or the place to give a detailed discussion, because that's something that will require many, many days of lecturing. And so what I'm going to do is just give a very brief overview and summary and then open the floor for questions because I'm sure, for those of you who are going for hedge, you have done the research that you need to, and it's not the time to do an actual fifth class of hygiene will take us many weeks. And also, hedges are very complicated ritual. It's not an easy ritual. And theory is one thing and practices and other theory is one thing and
reality is another so I can give you a nutshell, the theory, but what's gonna happen in your particular hedge, there's a million in one scenarios, right? Your bus was late, you missed this, you had to do that you weren't able to walk here, that army was at a different time, we cannot possibly cover all of the hypothetical scenarios that is going to happen. And therefore, the first piece of practical advice, I'm going to give some practical advice, the first piece of practical advice, choose your religious authority from now, who do you trust? To ask for factual? Who are you going to ask when something goes wrong, make sure you are confident in that person. Because your hedge is
going to really depend on who you're going to ask for your confusion. If you don't know what you're doing, you need to call up need to ask some fatwa have some authority that you trust. Some hedge groups have a Muslim, most of them have some type of spiritual guide. Fact of the matter is many of them are not. And you know, I mean, there as you know, the state of the oma our religious clergy is sometimes not qualified to do what they're doing. So you need to make up your mind who is the authority that you trust, and then stick with that authority. If you're happy with the guide, that's with your package and hamdulillah If not, then find out somebody that you can contact. I'm not
unfortunately going for a hedge. So I'm not the best person I wish I could be your your, your your modeling, but I'm, you know, 2000 miles away in Memphis, you might need something instantaneously answered. So find out and believe me, there's plenty of people there. Generally speaking, it's not a problem, I would encourage you to also avail yourself to the federal booths. There are federal booths set up everywhere says questions for tours. And there are scholars there that are appointed by the government, with translators in every language, Arabic, English, Urdu course they speak Arabic or some other language. It's These are the people that are going to the experience, they know
what they're talking about. And I would encourage you, if you cannot find anybody to encourage yourself, avail yourself to that opportunity. So insha Allah in a nutshell, we'll cover hedge and then we'll open the floor for questions, comments and concerns,
as we all know, is the fifth pillar of Islam and it is an obligation and that's something that 100 all of you are familiar with. And it is the last obligation that Allah revealed over the weekend. It is the last of the five out again, not just in order, but in chronic chronic, chronological Jube. Allah revealed, firstly, the fast the prayer, and then he revealed the fasting, and then he revealed the zakat. And then the final obligation that revealed is the reveal is the revelation of hedge and hedges obligatory with two conditions, physical capability and financial surplus, you need to be physically capable, if you're incapacitated. If you don't have a maharam, you're not physically
capable of doing hedge, you need to be physically capable. Number one, number two, you need to have the finances and finances. Again, it's a question of how much finances Do you need, the response is enough for you to do a hedge that is comfortable for your socio economic level. If you're middle class than you expect to go into middle class hedge, right? And therefore, you need to have an hour times at least what is the average four or $5,000 or even more these days, you know, four or five 6000. I mean, this is what it used to be. Even 10 years ago, it used to be 2000. But prices are going up. So a lot does not require that you go like a beggar. If you live a middle class life in
America, it's understood that as a middle class person, you will go on a middle class package. So you need to save up for what is the equivalent to five 6000 years, you spend dollars. If by that time you save up the prices go up. You don't have to sacrifice and go on the bare bottom package because this is your going at your level. Right now. If you're saving up for the luxury package, and you're not capable or worthy of that this is rough. This is rough, you know your level. You know what is reasonable for you and you
Look at the package of the three star hotel which is a middle class what we would expect then this is the package you go for. If you are Mashallah earning any martial a lot of money and you expect to go in that package, then that's a different story the five star package otherwise, for most Muslims, we go for the average hedge route, which is around five $6,000 in our times. Now,
hedge There are three types of hedge and I'm only going to concentrate on the one that's the most common. The three types of hedge are number one, demo tour number two, Tehran, number three if fraud
once again damage to Iran and a flood. What are these three types it's how you combine omura with hedge This is how the relationship comes there are three logical possibilities. Number one, you don't do it at all. And that's a fraud a fraud from fraud a singular there is no tomorrow you just go for the hedge. Number two, you do Umrah and Hajj in one haram you don't get out of Islam. And this is Quran, you have joined the
Quran, you have Quran, you have joined the to number three, and this is the most common for foreigners who don't live in southern Arabia. And also it is the most rewarding it is that you do a full hedge and a full omura with two columns. So you do the full hydrant O'Meara with with you get out of the farm in the middle. And this is the best because it is two acts in one. You do the aroma and then you do the hedge. And this is what most people do because they're going only one time in their life. So they want to do the hedge. They want to do their own moolah, right. So once again, if you only do the hedge, this is a fraud. And that's the quickest, shortest easiest. It's also the
cheapest because you don't have to pay that quarter bunny. Right?
number if fraud is singular hedge facility said, right? I mean, I'm just I might have said that's number three. But I mean, I'm saying if fraud is the term, if fraud is singular hedge, right? Another type of hedges put on which you combine the two together, and then cut on. As we said, you do Hajj and Umrah in one harem, you don't get out of Iran.
And the most common type, and that's the type I'm going to be talking about. That's the type that the bulk of the world that goes out from abroad and comes from abroad does is tomato, and tomato is also the most rewarding. And amateurs also the most actions in it and that's why it's the most rewarding and tomato is the full aroma. Then you get out of O'Meara and then you wait for the days of hedge and then you do the full hedge. So tomato means enjoyment. It is called enjoyment because you enjoy getting out of Islam. There's a period of enjoyment, because in Iran, you cannot cut your nails, shave your hair, enjoy your wife, etc. out of the home, all of this is permissible. So tomato
means you did the aroma, then you got out of home you finished house now you're done. Now you have five days, one week, 10 days, however many days for some people that can even be one month, two months, they're in this state of enjoyment. If they come in show while and they come after Ramadan, they're gonna wait all the way till till little card hedger until they do it. So of course for us in America, we cannot have that luxury. It's only five days, two days one day, but tomorrow it means you enjoy in the middle and that's why it's called de mettre. So we're going to talk about d'amato we're not going to do the other two, if you're doing the other two, then come to me later or speak
to me afterwards. But we're going to talk about the material because that's what 90% of the world does and that is what they should do. If it's the first hedge they're going for
the first thing that we need to understand is that hedge must occur at a particular place in a particular time and a particular state of a harem place time and spiritual state are all important, not like Salah you can pray anywhere, not like Dora, you can do it in any state, Hajj as a particular place it has to be in Makkah Mina was that if an artifact understood has to be at a particular time, right. And for the Hajj x it must be on the eighth ninth 10th 11th 12th of the hedger you cannot do it on any other day and it must be in a particular state and that state is called the home right. So how does a very specific act particular place time and state? So what is
the alarm? The ROM is a state in which you declare certain things that are Hillel, you declare them how long and that's what it's called, how long you have made certain things that are otherwise halaal you have made them how long upon yourself. And so the ROM is a sacred state that you enter and you declare in front of Allah, I am doing Hajj. So I'm entering the state of Iran. Now where is the harem entered into? It is entered into in the mobile feet or the male court
midcourt, the mid part geographic locations, the Profit System specified five locations, he specified five locations, our scholars have taken those five and drawn lines between them, right. And so the ROM has become a boundary. Because of these five locations, these are specifically mentioned in the Hadith. And then our modern scholars, in fact, even in the old, they they drew boundaries, you don't have to go to one of these five, but these are the boundaries that are made by the five, right. And so when you cross the boundary, you must at that point, or before it is permissible to go before it, declare it how long you cannot pass the mcats without declaring how
long or else you have to pay a penalty. Right? So you have to declare the firearm at or before the court. Why do I say before because when you're going on a plane, you don't have to wait exactly at the minute because you're not going to know it is safer to declare your head on 10 minutes, five minutes before you think you're going to enter it and you are safe. Okay, because you can enter a firearm before the main court. If you pass them in court. This is a penalty, you have to give a video which we'll talk about later on. So we don't have to worry about
telling you what the meal costs are. Any plane you take your meal cart you're going to land in Jeddah right. I don't think anybody's landing in Riyadh every day almost 99% land in Jeddah. So realize that the main thought is five minutes before you land. Five minutes before you land is the meal cut. That's all you need to know. Therefore, it is safest to enter into a harem 10 minutes before you land. Not a problem if it's 15 minutes because it doesn't matter. You can enter it not even from America, but you're making life difficult. Right? So you enter into a harem 10 minutes before you land you're on the safe side right. In fact, the milk cart is literally right outside of
Jeddah if somebody were to say two minutes before you land three minutes before we land, this would also have an element of truth because the main part is literally outside of Jeddah. What you cannot do is land in Jeddah and then say the big Aloma hedge, no, now you're in trouble and you have to pay a penalty. You cannot wait for the plane to land you have to enter the method and declared the Tobia before the state of the art before you land in Jeddah now.
Entering the harem is simply a verbal act.
It is a verbal act you say the baker Allahumma. Hajj This is your
whether you're wearing the aroma or not is a separate point. So if it so happens, some people are not wearing the hat on the big mistake. But when they enter into it, they have to say the baker lahoma hedge even if they're wearing pants and shirt, then they pay the penalty for the pants and shirt, but they're safe that they've entered their head on. Right please don't get confused. It Helen is not the garment you're wearing it her arm is the declaration, the bake Allahumma Hodge right or the baker lahoma bake whatever you're saying the bake, or you can even say no way to Hajin or you can say in English, my Nia is for Hajj. But you need to say something to enter into a harem.
And that is said before the mcats. So far, so clear. We're all on the same page. Now, of course, you know, you're going to enter into a harem before landing in Jeddah. Therefore, it's common sense that you wear the garments for the men, you wear the garments before you land in Jeddah. If you're stopping over in Dubai or in Frankfurt, believe me, it's not going to be embarrassing, because half the world is going for a hedge at that time. So everybody in the plane is going to be wearing a helmet, you don't have to worry about you don't have to worry about that. Yeah.
You know what, go ahead. So the question is no, not a problem. You're
like you make
and you're not worried.
So, if you make the ROM, while you're not wearing, the Fitbit is the same as cutting your hair off wearing clothes. And that is too fast three days or to feed six people or to give a sacrifice. And we'll talk about that in a while. Right? So the idea is relatively trivial. Whereas if you were to not enter a harem, now you're in big trouble. And you have to go back. That's the best thing to do. Or you have to give a bandana or a camel or something or sacrifice.
No, you don't have to you don't have to mention what type of hedge and you're allowed to change your mind within the hedge. It
shows his intelligence. When he did the bake. He didn't know how the processor was doing hedge. So he said what type of hedge he didn't know. So he said, the bake Allahumma upon the hedge of the processes and whatever that is
very smart. However, the process of doing that my hedge because he was coming from Yemen and the Prophet system was coming from Medina and so it doesn't matter even you change your mind. From from a fraud to tomato you change your mind before you begin not a problem because
Once you've entered is just like nothing prayer not nothing prayer, if you pray, wanted to pray to the cut for one reason and then you change your mind in the middle for nothing that's allowed not for for this law. So for Hajj, whatever you do is permissible within that framework. Yes.
You have to verbalize the NEA and verbalizing is done by anyway, the only place in the shediac where the NEA is verbal is hedge, not Insider, not in anything else. The only place where the NEA must be verbal is the hedge. Now, what is the verbalization it is any expression that signifies hedge you can say in English or law I am doing the hedge This is your near you can say the baker lahoma Baker, this is your near you can say the baker lahoma hedge the baker lahoma Dumbledore anything but you have to say it now, I wouldn't worry too much because the whole plane is going to be eagerly looking at their watch and this and that so you're with the group. So I wouldn't worry too much about you
forgetting the entire plane is a hydroplane and everybody's waiting and people are going to be doing it from the beginning all the way to Jeddah. Don't worry about that inshallah Allah plus you have a timeframe. Like I said, I would personally I would do it 15 minutes before the plane lands, even if you did it three minutes before the plane lands, and the pilot will make an announcement almost all airplanes, they may we'll make an announcement that we aren't, we are going to pass the new thought in two minutes or something like this. So when they make this announcement, and even if they don't, 10 minutes before they land, you should say something. If you don't verbalize you haven't made the
Nia and therefore there's the penalty if you land in Jeddah Okay. Now.
So if you're landing in Medina, that's 10 years, then you're safe because Medina is outside of Iran. But in America, I don't know. Planes Don't go. There are there are a few. Okay, it's rare. From what I remember, American groups, almost all of them they go to Jeddah, first, some groups from Egypt, and from Jordan, there's direct flights to Medina.
Aha, Jordan. Exactly. Yeah. So who is Jordan, and then they're going to Medina, then you're not entering your home anyway, because Medina is outside of, of the myth class, right. So if you're not entering the harem, then you don't have to worry about this, then you're going to enter Iran from Medina when the bus leaves, they're going to stop at the place of Islam, and then you're going to enter the home there. Now,
what is prohibited in Islam, nine things. Nine things are prohibited in Iran, we'll go over them one by one. Number one,
cutting or shaving the hair, cutting or shaving the hair.
I have to point out here that a lot of people make Islam more difficult than it is. And so if you're going to trust me, trust me, and what I say, if you're not, then go trust the person that you're going to trust for Islamic photos. But if you're coming here to this class, I'm assuming you're going to trust me, please understand that a lot of the books and a lot of the people out there, they make our religion more difficult. And it's not that difficult. I mean, I don't know how it says I have done Hajj and hamdulillah more than 10 times I have studied these rulings inside out. And what I'm teaching you is basically the fatawa, the fatawa, you're going to hear from those fatwa boxes
and boots. This is the mainstream photo of those who are doing hedge every year, and they're more familiar with it. You know, when you're far away, and you've never done hedge, it's easier to make things more difficult even as a scholar, and this is what we found many of the scholars did, that they've never done a hedge. And because they don't understand they don't visualize, they might make things more difficult. Those who do hedge regularly, and they understand the evidence is make a little bit easier. So what do I mean by all of this? What is prohibited is to intentionally pluck your hair or to trim it or to shave it. If your hair accidentally falls off. You didn't do it, don't
worry about it. Right. Also, it is not how to comb your hair. There is not there's no prohibition against combing the prohibition against shaving, plucking, trimming. So it is understood, especially when you're older in your ears such as myself these days when you comb your hair, something's gonna fall right that didn't happen 10 years ago with me now it is happening okay. This does not constitute plucking the hair because your intention was to comb and it is permitted for men and for women to comb. I said it is permitted. It's not encouraged but it is allowed. There's no penalty if when you comb your hair, some hair falls off. Similarly, there's no penalty if you wake up and your
pillow has some hair fault enough you didn't do it. It's nothing at all. If you were intentionally did it this is where you need to pay the video. Right so we'll get to the video. Number one we said shaving, trimming, cutting the hair. Number two, cutting the nails. Once again intentionally cutting the nails. If and this happens to me all the time, your nails scripts against something and it bends right because you're in the state of it.
For a week, your nails are going to grow. If they're going to grow, it's going to chip away. Again, if you have if it's even if it's chipped away, and it's painful to or it's awkward, you may break the chip without breaking the whole nail. Right? You understand this point a little bit of nail, you didn't intend to break the nail, there is no video. This is your hands raised against something, cement or something and happens all the time, right? Or you pick something up, you have big nails, and it it cracked, you didn't intentionally crack or break the nail no further on you what is not allowed if you take the nail clippers or your teeth or you know, some people, you know, bite their
nails or whatever, that would not be allowed. And again, this is intentional, unintentional, everything that is done unintentionally is forgiven. Anyway, the shed has this right. And I've been out to dinner in the scene. Anything that is unintentional. So even if you were just trimming, you know, pulling your beard like this, or pulling your hair, some people have a habit of you know, doing this, and then you realize, oh, a hair came out. You didn't intend to do that. Right? And therefore this is forgiven course you should be conscious, but it's forgiven. There's no video on number two, we said, trimming the nails. Number three. Now, by the way, I need to understand explain
to the psychology. Why does a lot tell men and women, this is for both men and women so far, to not trim their nails and their hair, to remind them
that there is a greater goal. But they shouldn't be worried about vanity looking pretty and looking beautiful, that there's a bigger goal that you know, at times of distress. Imagine somebody whose loved one has died. Do you think they're going to be worried about grooming themselves and trimming the you know, it's something big happening, right? So Allah is telling you, this is your family, right? This is imagine comedy, right? Imagine you have something to you should have bigger things on your mind. then making sure you're looking all pretty and vainglorious. And looking at the window, a mirror looking at, you know, looking at your image, no, there's bigger things to worry about. So a
lot, once us intentionally to feel that we have bigger things to worry about. And so he's made these things prohibited without making the more bigger things such as also such as washing yourself in the bathroom, of course you need to do that. Right. So Allah has prohibited the finer things of life, and not the staple items of life. So number two is trimming the nose number three, for men only covering the hair. Now, especially in the old days, covering the hair was a sign of modesty for men. It was a sign of dignity, right? Even in America, look at any black and white movie, what are all the men have their caps on and to remove the hair covering was a sign of humility. free men did not
have their hair uncovered, only slaves did. And this is by the way, even in Islamic lines, freemen didn't have this. This is culture in our times, everybody myself, all of you, all of us who have our hair uncovered. This is culture. So the purpose here was to signify your servitude to Allah,
that nobody had their hair uncovered except to slave in hajj, all of us are Allah slaves. So we were all supposed to have the hair uncovered. And therefore to cover the hair with a connected garment, such as a cap, such as a ball cap, such as a turban, this is something that is not allowed, however, to have shade and shelter. The Profit System below would cover him with the sun with his own right, and the Profit System sat under a tree. So there is one group, different federal, they believe that you cannot have any covering between you and Allah. So their buses are all they have no covering on the buses, their tents have nothing on top. This is that federal law, this is not socialism. This is
another federal for us. We can sit in shade, the process of them sat in shade, you can cover yourself with a umbrella. You can cover yourself with the sun with something that's not connected, but you cannot have a connected covering on the head. You had a question with it.
When you're sleeping, the pen has been lifted from you.
You don't intentionally put it on you. But if you're sleeping and you just put it on and and you're asleep, and you wake up when you wake up, you take it off. You didn't intentionally put it on you. Number four. Number four, and this is also for men only. And this is the biggest confusion amongst men.
It says you're not supposed to wear unsewn or you're supposed to wear unsewn or unstitched garments, right. This is where men now people don't understand what unsolder unstitch means. And they think that unsewn and unstitch means you cannot have any needlework on it.
This is completely wrong, and the translation is wrong as well. What is forbidden is for men to wear a garment that wraps around the limbs. This is what unstitched means, such as my shirt, just as a jacket that has hands. You know for sleeves in it, such as a pant, slacks, jeans, undergarments under, these are sewn,
your head arm has needlework on it. That's not it's not a problem, right? a jacket. If you were to wear a jacket in the cold weather without putting your sleeves in, this is an unsewn garment, because you're using it as a shawl. You guys following me if I have a jacket, you put it on over you without putting your hands inside, you're safe. You're scot free, because you're not using it as a stitched garment. What is a stitched garment garment that covers the limbs, wedges, the limbs, the two hands and the feet, right. And therefore, pants are not allowed. But you cover yourself with that with the head on shirts are not allowed, but you cover the upper part of the garment with
something that wraps around. It doesn't have to be white. It doesn't have to be a rectangle. But of course it's the most convenient that is shaped that way. And of course White is the most beloved cover color to the Profit System. So that is why all the columns are white, and that is why they're shaped in that rectangle. But the meaning of unstitched is that you don't have
leggings and and sleeves. This is what it means unstitch and therefore as I said if you were to wear something as a shawl, even if that garment has leggings and sleeves, you're fine because you didn't use it as that you used it as a wraparound. So the point being for men only they need to wrap things around them and they cannot wear stitched garments. So this is point number four, point them and of course for women there is no harm in the clothing. For women. There is no harm in the clothing they wear their regular clothes is only for men. Point number five.
Perfume as well has been prohibited in the state of Islam. Of course the big issue comes How about that which is not intended as perfume but still emanates perfume such as soaps, lotions, creams.
In my humble opinion these things are McGrew but they are not how long.
They are makrooh but they are not how long what is any mcru it's best to avoid it. But there is no video on you. Why? Because nobody uses soap in order to perfume themselves. Right soap is not meant to perfume. So it is not a perfume. Even if it has some perfume scent in it. You see the difference? Right? Similarly creams and lotions that are used for dry skin. My suggestion and advice and this is what I do when I go for Hajj, you buy the unscented versions, you get unscented soap, and you get unscented lotions, right? So to be on the safe side get that but in and of itself to use regular lotions and creams. Now there are those that are extra sensitive. Obviously this is a gray area
here, you're getting more and more to the how long right? But the average jergens lotion, hand lotion, right? It has a scent but it is not scented. You see the difference? Right? That's completely permissible. There's no scent, there's no perfume coming from it, perfume lotions, or mcru. Don't use them, because but nonetheless, they are not too familiar because if you wanted to use perfume, you'd put some cologne you put some glitter, and that is what is held on
soap as well. There's a scent that comes from it, but it is not. You don't use soap to perfect yourself. You guys understand this point here, right? So bottom line, avoided but most likely, when you go to the bathroom or you go you're gonna find perfume soap over there, right? Go ahead and use it. It's not going to cause you a video. It's best that you have your own but somebody is going to take yours you're going to drop yours they're going to go missing. So you go there, there's going to be perfect. Likewise, your skin's gonna crack you you finished your own unscented lotion. You might have to use somebody else's regular lotion, which has a little bit of perfume in it. There is no
video on you. There is no video if you use that, but make sure in your personal belongings you have unscented version. This is number six. Number sorry number five. Number six is COVID
toothpaste is not at all McGrew because that is ingested or put in the mouth. You don't stop eating scented food biryani is held Alhamdulillah throughout Hajj, great, spicy silence not a problem even though I wouldn't advise you for edge. Very dangerous, but it's not a problem. Okay, so toothpaste not at all not even mcru because that's going inside and using that matalon issue because that's not
A few months ago and is going inside.
We're getting there. We're getting there. It's not a problem at all, but we're getting there. Point number six. Nothing we have to worry about from America hunting. None of us hunts when we go for a hike we don't even hadn't in America, so we don't have to worry about that hunting is also out on point number seven in Sharla. Again, we don't have to worry about America 789 all have to do with marriage. Point number seven is getting married. inshallah nobody goes to MCC in the state of Rome to get married. So we don't have to worry about that. If you do fall in love, then wait till you get out of it head on and then marry otherwise, yeah, Annie, just be patient one week, that's all you
have to do. Okay.
Falling in love and how long is not a problem getting married? No problem. But you should have bigger points in mind. Point number seven. Point number eight is foreplay with your spouse. And five foreplay we mean kissing, petting all of this type of stuff. We have to be very explicit, I have to excuse me for that. But this is unnecessary. What we mean is touching your wife with passion, touching your wife to save her from the crowd is watching.
There was no video at all, okay, touching your wife in order to guard her as all the people are pushing and shoving. This is being a man. There is no video at all. touching your wife is Helen. But touching with passion becomes my daughter becomes what is prohibited. We all know the difference will have to go into detail for this regard. So holding your wife's hand in order that she doesn't get lost is something that you should do as a couple in hedge. Holding your hand to be romantic is not something you should do in the state of Ohio. This is common sense differentiation between the two. So this is point number seven. Point number eight sorry, point number nine is actual
intercourse. And that is separate from eight because eight you can get out of up the video for nine your hedge has been null and void if you get to that level is null and void. And to be honest, that's not anything you have to worry about. Because there is no privacy at all during Hajj. Men are all together with men, women are together with women. So there's really, there's really an I've, in the 10 years I've done hedge nobody has come to me with this problem. Because it's not even possible. Even if you go into superstar packages, generally there's men in the room and the women in the room so don't have to worry about this or hamdulillah. Otherwise, just for your fifth knowledge.
This if you do in the state of Iran, this is null and void. Your hedge is null and void. You have to repeat your hedge next year. Big problem, big issue. Just make sure that that doesn't happen. Be patient until you come back out of the state of economics. These are the nine
or the nine issues of Trump now. One point footware. Again, this is for men only for women, there is no ihraam guidelines for clothing, they wear whatever they need to wear. There's no the same jilbab hijaab schelotto gummies, whatever they're wearing regularly, they were unhedged. There's no clothing, requirements or issues for our sisters from America. For those who are extra conservative the issue of the glove and the new column is something they need to discuss. But I don't see anybody wearing that over here so we don't have to worry about that. Otherwise, the glove and the niqab should not be worn by a woman as a separate garment. Yes, you have a question?
Yes, I thought okay. For men footwear.
The profitsystem said that whoever has sandals should wear them and should not wear shoes, but whoever has shoes then they are forgiven. In one earlier version of the Hadith or earlier hedge. It is said that the process of told them to cut off the tops of the shoes that is below the ankles. Right? There's a biggest laugh if you have shoes, must you cut them off below the ankles? We don't have to worry about the issue because we're gonna purchase footwear that we're going to use for hedge so what is a legitimate footwear for the men? Obviously for women, there's no issue they wear their shoes and whatnot firm for men. What is the legitimate issue? Again, there's a lot of stuff
we're going to find details the bottom line, anything that you would call a sandal is permissible. And anything that you would call a shoe generally is not permissible. Right? So don't wear Nikes don't wear a shoe just wear something that is a sandal now obviously there's a gray area and a fine line some sandals or almost shoes you know I understand that any use your better judgment right and one thing that as a practical and personal note. Do not purchase brand new sandals for hedge it's making the biggest mistake possible. Use the ones that are the most worn out Why?
Cuz those are the ones you're used to. You're comfortable in. Right? Don't buy spanking brand new because that's gonna make you blisters and sore. No, you don't want that. I speak from experience. You want the ones that
The most worn out, and the ones who are the most comfortable in, right. And therefore if you don't have any buy them from now and wear them on a daily basis, so that you get used to them without socks, because you need to wear the sandals without socks, because you cannot cover your feet, you cannot have the socks because that is a that is a sewn garment. Can we close the door maybe so that way the kids are playing in the outside.
That is a sewn garment. So you cannot have a sock, right? Therefore purchase sandals that you're going to wear
without socks and get used to those sandals, that is the best thing to do. You have a question with this.
There's not a problem having it closed from the back, as long as a strap from the back is still a sandal. It's not a shoe, a strap that is in the back is still the standard. It's not a shoe. Right I myself the sandals that I wear for hedge they are. They are athletes sandals, so you know you're supposed to be running in them and stuff. But they are criss crossed, so there's not fully covered. And then there's a strap at the back. So the bulk of the foot is exposed. And there's a strap at the back. And there's not a problem at all to where that. So these are the nine Mahabharata, the nine issues of Iran. Now
the bulk of the problem that occurs is with regards to trimming and cutting deals and the the putting on of the perfume, and all of this, you know the trivial stuff as we call it for these things, if you need to do them intentionally. If you need to do them intentionally, then do them. You are not sinful. And then pay the video. What do I mean by this? One of the Sahaba had heavy here. And in the state of Rome while walking to Mecca, he got infested with lice.
And lice is a problem. Big problem itching scratching this and that. When the Prophet says number heard, he said hello, go and shave your hair and pay the video. Don't torture yourself. If there's a medical reason that you need to do one of these. So for example, you are freezing cold, you are sick and you need a jacket and putting it on you is not helping you. Right? Go ahead and put the jacket on. This is for men for women, of course they wear the jacket anyway not a problem for men go ahead and put the jacket on. If you have a fever, you have a flu, you need to be protected from the cold, right? Go ahead and do it and then pay the video. There's no sin on you, right. Similarly, any
issues of shaving and trimming or whatnot, if you have to do it for medical reasons, there's no sin. What if you did it not for medical reasons. But for
any other issue in this conflict, let's say in this case, you are sinful and you paid
for medical reasons you're not sinful and you pay the video for non medical reasons. You are sinful. So you have to repent to Allah, it's not good that you did it. And then you pay the video. So there's a fine line between comfort and medical. So for example, if you have a blister, and you need to wear a shoe, rather than your your now what defines a blister that is really painful. And this goes back to your better judgment. So bottom line, if you think that this is something that is a type of medical, not a balloon balloon is too big of a word and medical expediency, it makes life easier for you for medical reasons, then you should do it. And you pay the video and you embrace a
last concession that look a lot allowed me to do this right. Another example, that some years ago, there was this swine flu or bird flu, whatever happening, right? So the government said everybody should work as this non kastmaster. The, the, the face mask, right? Because the virus was spreading everywhere. In this case, they should do it, but they pay the video.
Right? Now, I don't know if that is the case anymore. You know, bester we have the government advisory now. But the bottom line if you want to wear it for medical reasons, and if there's a pressing need, then there's no set, you go ahead and do it. And then you pay the fifth, you have to pay the fifth you never get out of the video. What is the video, you may fast for three days, that's very difficult, much easier. You pay the co founder, which is to feed
six people to feed six people, right? And then the third option, you actually sacrifice an animal that cost $500 $200 very expensive. You don't need to do that. The easiest thing to do, and they're all three equivalent, the easiest thing to do is to feed six people. What does it mean to feed six people couldn't be easier. Anything easiest thing to do is very easy. You go to the shower place in front of you, you go to the chicken stand, you go to any type of burger joint, whatever is there, you buy six meals, and you will find beggars are plenty. You will find people from all over the world from India and Pakistan from Bangladesh from Africa from people who can under sleeping,
sleeping on the streets and you go and you give them these
meals and you've done your job six people and six meals, right? So you feed six people, an average food item. What is an average food is an average meal, chicken and rice, shawarma, falafel, whatever you're going to buy for yourself, right? Three rails, five rails, whatever is going to cost you very cheap. And you just go and you buy six meals, and you feed six people. And believe me, you will find much more than six. The problem is when you give it to 660 will come and they will say we went as well. So you're not gonna have a problem finding six people, you're not gonna have a problem finding food. So that's going to be the least of your worries. Okay, you have a question? Yes.
We will make your life easier doing it over there. Believe me. Where are you going to find six people here poor people to feed? Right? Where are you going to find six people in Memphis poor Muslims to feed it will make your life much easier. You don't have to do it there. But believe me it is better you do it there before you come back the feet six feet. It doesn't have to be right on that day. But before you come back, you do that? Yes.
The fasting has to be done that selected for the Hello Sabatino digital fasting should be done in that area, which is always very difficult and I would never encourage anybody to do it. Okay.
We're kind of running out of time. I wanted to have q&a. Let me just quickly go over the rights of Hajji went has spent a long time spending on the nine issues of health. Let me just do in a nutshell, the ideal hedge that you will do as handwritten letter okay. handwritten letter means you will be doing Roma before Hajj.
So what this means is you will enter the state of Islam you will be wearing the harem then you will perform the ombre which is seven
throw off round time the Kaabah then seven sorry. and assign means one way is one the way back is to a lot of people think one way is the whole back and forth that means you don't 14 no from Safa. Tomorrow is one from Ottawa back to suffer is number two, then Safa. tomahto, s3, then marowak to suffer is for right? So you do it, basically three times back and forth. And then one more, right. So three times back and forth the six and then one more, that is seven. Once you've done that, then if you're doing Dumbledore, you will trim your hair. Okay, here's where I'm going to be strict with you. This is, in my humble opinion, it is not valid for you to take a pair of scissors and go snip,
snip, snip, and that's it. This is not valid. And this is a concession that one of the methods has which I think is not valid at all. When Allah says trim the hair, you need to trim the hair, how do you trim the hair, all of it.
Just like when you do will do if somebody said I'm going to do will do by going tick, tick, tick and that's my will do none of you would say this is valid. When Allah says wipe your hair, you wipe your head, you wipe it, all of it. And therefore this is what I'm strict here and I say you this is your hedge do it properly. I do not think this is valid. Somebody else is doing it that's between them and Allah. You're asking me I say this is not valid. You need to trim all of your hair. And there are barbers everywhere. You know this at that time of the barber, barber season barber galore, everybody is a Barbara there, right? If you're doing tomato, do not shave your hair during your own
row, you save that for the hedge.
Because you want to do the better of the two for hedge. Right? Because within one week, you're going to be doing it again and your hair is not going to grow back in one week. No matter how much Mashallah you have, it doesn't matter. It's not going to grow back in one week. Okay. So you do your trimming. For women, they take their entire ponytail, or their entire hair as much as they have it right. And they trim
the tip of a finger, all of it, not just one slip. So they gather all of their hair in one fist. Right. And then the tip of it they would they would trim for one fingernail and that is the trimming for women. For men they have to trim all of their hair. Once you've trimmed your hair. You are out of the state of Iran. This is your thermometer remember so you haven't done your hedges. This is the aroma of tomato once you trim your hair house you're out of the state of Iran. So you go back to your hotel you take a shower you perfume you close you may come do whatever you want you there is no economic anymore because you're out of it. That's why it's called d'amato. So once you've done that,
you will remain in Makkah, some groups go to Medina during this time and then come back that two is fine. Not a problem. Most groups remain in Makkah during this time. So this is a hedge starts on the eighth of June hedger. This is most likely the fourth or the third, they will come to Makkah they'll spend four or five days you do your ibadah you do tawaf, you do whatever you want. That's fine. You're not in a harem. On the eighth of June Hey
The only time ever you will enter Iran from where you are. This is the exception to the rule of Islam. Otherwise, if you were to do Umrah or Hajj anywhere else are you coming in, you must enter from the Meerkat, there is only one exception. And that is during the days of Hajj for the judge, intimate. That's why it's called the matter you're enjoying is the one exception, and everybody will do it. So you don't have to worry about that. On the eighth of June, you will re enter the state of your home in your place of residence or a hotel wherever you are. And you say the baker lahoma hedge, you enter it again, a big Aloma hedge, right. And on the eighth, you're more alum, your guide
will take you to Mina. This is the day of preparation. There's nothing that happens there. And in fact, the entire day of the eighth is sooner. If you were to skip it, your hedge is still valid. There is no video no cafaro nothing. The eighth is the day of preparation, your material, which is called preparation, you're preparing for the big day. So the eighth is not even essential. So if you do anything wrong, you cannot do anything wrong on the eighth, right? Yes.
After fudger before the decision, after federal right before the show the profitsystem would enter a home in the morning of the eighth. And he would travel to Mina in Mina, you pray for her answer. Most of the Eurasia and the next fudger. So now we're on the ninth five prayers in Mina.
Yes, you leave Mecca with your home. from wherever you are you leave mica from Iraq. Yes, you enter Iran from your place of residence, your hotel, wherever you are. Now, as I said, these prayers and the staying of Mina. This is optional, voluntary sooner, you should do it. Suppose Something happened, you fell sick, you have a fever, stay in your place of residence, and make sure you have arrangements to go four out of five the next day. Keep your energy for the big thing. And that's the ninth, the ninth is the big day. This is the day that is the day of hedge, the profit zone set, set a hedge out offer simple Arabic and had you out of a simple equation. The whole hedge is around
alpha. So keep your energy for the ninth day, this is what you need to do. Right. On the morning of the ninth most of you will be in Mina. In fact, everyone should be in Mina. But if it so happens, you're not not a problem. You make your way to our facts, and on our facts. On the ninth, you should aim to get there before
you get there after law, not a problem. But the sooner is to get there before the law.
And on the day of out Have you will pray for her and answer shortened and combined in Minar. They will be shortened but not combined.
replay to further an answer. But there'll be at the regular timing. But in our fat you pray shortened and combined. Why? Because to show you that on the day of our offer, there's something even more important than praying it is proper time. And that is
so had you out of this is what you've come come for. To raise your hands to Allah and to beg and plead and cry and spend the entire day in liquid and liquid and dry. That's what you even Salah you just get get it out of the way. soon as you arrive, time for Zoho, you paid 200 an ounce or two to combine. And the rest of the day is then spent making dua thinking about your past sins, having the intention to a lot to have a better life in the future. And the doer of the deen and the act of dunya. Everything that comes this is what you are there for and to end. And I encourage you and you know what like it sounds Believe me remember this those who are going for hedge. You're going
thinking that this is going to be the spiritual time of your life. When you get there disease, plague fatigue, thirst noise, Smaug your spirituality is going to be a problem to try to get out of you. Right? It's easy to think how can I not be in a spiritual state? Get there, see how tired you are? See how physically fit. That's the whole point of hygena you need to extract the Rouhani out of you because you're so tired. You just you know, it's everything. But if it does, it's a problem to get out of that. Another point is and it sounds so petty that you might even get angry at me for saying this. You will not believe Hajj has become a tourism for many of the people talking
blabbering Reba backbiting Can you believe and I have seen this too many times. People literally gossip on the day of arafah now you're gonna say not in my group. Mark my words righted.
In your group
in your group laughing joking talking about I have even had people when I used to, to hedge, there was no internet connection. Now I'm sure they even have that they're listening to the radio for the latest basketball scores. Because there was some game happening the Lakers versus somebody that day, right? Or one year there was the finals of the football happening, right? And so can you believe now?
People are smoking doing all of this? Yeah, I mean, smoking, they, they don't even think it's hot. Um, so for, you know, it's even worse. And you know, My point being,
realize you need to cut off from those people. Don't sit with them. Don't listen to the basketballs course, but that day, you're laughing at me, believe me, you will be tempted on that day. Because that's what your thought wants you to do. You will be tempted to waste your time in this type of, you know, Riba and backbiting and not even just talking about stuff of useless time, cut away from them, the best thing to do, walk outside of the tent to a private area, shelter, be under shelter, because it's hot, have lots of water, obviously practical advice, but just break away from the group. And just sit there with your dog and your physical books and whatever you have, and just
private have your water and have your Vicodin and spend three, four hours solid away from society by meaning outside of the tent, you're on your own under the tree, especially before most of the the professor's would actually come outside of the shade. And he would in the sun now this is what time is this this is to to 20 minutes before Muslim you know, 30 minutes from or not. And this time there's going to be too hot right? When the sun is lost the heat, the process would literally go into the sun out of the shade. Don't do it at three o'clock. Do it at six, seven o'clock, whenever is negative 20 minutes before sir on six o'clock these days would be the process would go out into
the sun and raise his hands up to Allah azza wa jal directly,
and hands all the way up making dua. And you'll see a lot of people doing this in your group as well. That's the time to do it. Right towards the end. You're not allowed to leave out of fat before mostly.
And you cannot because the gates are closed anyway. So it's not even an issue. Even if you try to the police would stop you.
You're not allowed to leave outside before Muslim. After Muslim, the gates open up for most of you are going to be sitting in your cars for 3456 hours because there's going to be traffic jams, right. And this is very frustrating. But that's what you got to do. The gates are open but you are five miles behind the gates, right. And the buses are all stacked up and lined up for 567 miles. Sometimes I have even waited until 11 o'clock before the bus moves and Muslims at 630. Right. So for four hours, five hours, you're sitting in that smog. And that's the worst. One of the worst parts of hydrilla is that time, because it's just so much all the buses and all the people bathroom is a
problem. This is a problem. It's just chaotic at that time. Right. And this is a part of the Hajj experience.
I wouldn't advise you to walk it at that point in time.
Unless you're a group of young men, then is permissible or is good. Otherwise, it's just not the time you want to walk into it. The next stage which I'll tell you from out of fat you will go to was Delica.
Delhi is an open plane. There are no tents, there's no hotel. Unless you're a guest of the king, you have a palace upon the mountain. Otherwise, you're all in the open. Was Delhi is the most disorienting time of Hajj. The most chaotic it's only six hours, because you'll get there 1112 o'clock. Maybe even one two o'clock. That's really rare. Usually you'll get there by 11 o'clock, right? What is there? Wherever the bus is able to find parking. That's where it is. Where do you sleep? Wherever your bus has parked, you just slip right outside over there. That's the most difficult time of edge. And bathrooms are the worst. Let me get to the bathrooms in a while. But
tullahoma Stan, that is the most difficult time.
some practical advice before I forget.
This is the time when the bulk of the Hajaj who are going to get lost Get lost.
If it's destined for you to get lost 90% 90% of time it will be on this night. Why? Because you wake up and you see 3 million people sleeping out in the open, right? And you see in the distance, perhaps half a mile away the bathroom.
So you got like whoa, a straight line from me to the bathroom. Okay, sure. It's a straight line. When you get out after two hours. When you get out you look and the whole world looks the same to you completely. And you're like hold on I remember so click. So this is the most difficult time, right? You need to be very careful about where you're going from look at your signs, look at your bearings, everything use your comments.
sense mountains, you know, poles, bridges, whatever you see, make sure every while you walk into the bathroom look behind you. And look, look at the areas here. When I come back, what am I going to see? Make sure you look at it right. Another problem is you might be using a bus as your guidepost, this red colored bus, you come out there is no red colored bus because it's left. Don't use buses. Okay, use permanent structures. Okay. Use something that you can see. And it is very problematic. Definitely, there's no question long lines. 4050 minutes is common for the bathroom. And that's why it will come to practical advice, eat little eat little is use you is going to be easier for you in
every sense, right? Of course drink you have to drink. Hydration is very essential in was that if there's a common myth that you have to get the stones, this is a myth. You can get the stones from anywhere.
However, it's convenient to get them from Mozilla because Mozilla is a stony area.
But you you know, I you I get them usually on the eighth day when I'm in jmeter. That's when I get them cuz get that out of the way. You get the Profit System did not tell us where to get the stones from. We don't even know where he got them from. We don't know where he got them from. So this is a common myth that you should get them from Mozilla for No, you can get them from your backyard in Memphis and go with them if you want. Not a problem.
As I said, my, my met, I've done hamdulillah more than 10 hedge my methodology was to get them on the eighth day of the ledger in minutes. Because that would get one thing out of the way, so I wouldn't have to worry about it. And the point of advice have a nice pouch for the stones right? plastic bag or some type of pouch. You don't have to buy fancy leather pouch. But if you wanted to go ahead and buy a fancy leather pouch, but have something to put the stones in write, how many stones do you need?
Do the math on the 10th, you're going to need seven on the 11th and 12th and 13th, you'll need 21 each. So 21 times three is
63 plus 770. Okay, so have these 70 stones and then add 10 for just in case just in case you drop one or something like this, but around 70 or so you're going to need now the Prophet system told us in our authentic ID when others came back to him with some nice big Mashallah heavy stones. He said,
No, this is too big. He said unless something like a chick pea, you all know what up the tip of your finger, something like this, he said, and do not go to extremes in a religion. This Hadith is about the size of stones. So the size of the stone should be small, it's symbolic. Now don't go to extremes, you examine every stone, you put your finger on it. Look just you have a rough idea. Write something that's the size of the tip of your finger. That's all keep it like that. Don't get some heavy stones, because that's not the purpose. So you get these small stones anywhere you want to get them at observe was that if I get them when was it for but there's no reason to do that. And believe
me, you really don't want to be spending an hour compiling stones and was terrified. Yes, 90% of the project you're doing that you can get on to other things. Okay. So you spend the night in was that if you wake up and you pray fudger, it was Delica. And then you go to Mina.
Here is where if you're fit and up for it, I would in fact encourage you to walk it.
Why it's not that much of a walk and an hour.
And when I say young and healthy, I mean women do it all the time, it's just a matter of you can walk for an hour at a regular pace, that's fine. You know, you'll get there before most of the crowd. It's nice and healthy, fresh air. And it's just you know, there's the small gun, the hectic traffic, you'll just get out of it right now, when you get to Minar point of advice I forgot to mention, please make a note, memorize where your tents are in Minar on the eighth of the future, memorize where the tents are. Because you're going to come back to the same tents on the 10th.
So memorize it, and how do you memorize it very simple hamdulillah all the tents are numbered. All the tents are numbered, and it's rows and columns. So it's very easy. And if you don't know, you ask there are lots of Boy Scouts or lots of guides there. You say Where is number three dash 109 and they say, Oh 3109 is that way and you'll keep on seeing you look up and you find numbers everywhere. Okay, and once you get to 3109 you will remember where you attend to us and that's going to be your tents. So when you walk back, you know where your tent is. And if you look around you'll even find big maps in Arabic but you all read numbers in Arabic And it'll say where you are, you know you are
here big arrow and then you see 3109 where it is and you will find it. Not a problem. Okay.
Can you leave was that ever before if you are a elderly or a woman
are sick then Yes, you may.
And if you're young and healthy, then you should not the Profit System allowed. oma Salama, oma selama was not sick. She was just getting on in years. She's not even old. She's the profits, right? So I sell it. Right, she allowed all my Salama to leave Muslim, after midnight.
And he allowed even a boss who was a young boy to accompany the women because he was with the women.
So it is permitted without any video, without any problem for the elderly. So if you have a parent with you, and you were taking care of the parent leave early, right? If you have your wife who's pregnant, let's say right, then leave early. Otherwise, if you're young and healthy, so I didn't do that almost unlimited. Right. The other ones didn't do that. One of them only out of all the profits wise only woman selama. Why? Because she was the slowest and walking. And she was the one little bit elderly not again, she wasn't old. She's not like in the equivalent of wheelchair, but she wants to avoid the crowd. So even the slightest excuse to have a slight fever, go ahead got a problem. From
this, we derive even the slightest legitimate excuse, you may leave before fragile after midnight. So you spend some time in Metallica. And then you move on to Mina, what
we're getting there now. So now this is on the ninth and the night of the ninth remaining in was done if for some period is wajib, you must remain there. If you don't, you have to pay a penalty. And the penalty is the de facto the sacrifice of another animal. Now on the 10th. On the 10th, there are four things that are typically done.
When you do two of the four things, you are out of what we call the minor heroine. And when you do all four, then you're out of the major error. Right? What's the difference between minor and major, major heroine? When you're out of mind you're at home, then you may do everything other than marital intimacy. So you may resume your clothes, irregular clothes, perfume, trimming, all of this is permitted, the only thing that is not allowed is intimacy. And then when you do all four, then everything becomes highlighted. So what are the four things that are done on the 10th the order of the Prophet system was as follows. But this order is not wired up, you may do it in any order. The
Prophet system would number one stone, the Jonathan Cooper or the major, that what they call the big shot on the magenta Cobra number one, number two, he would sacrifice number three, he would trim or shave, he shaved or sell them. And number four, he did the bow off.
you do the stoning of only the one on that day you only do one the large one, right. Number two is the
the sacrifice number three is the shaving. And number four is that off now.
Nobody in our times does the sacrifice himself. You just buy the voucher and the coupon. So you don't have to worry about that you assume your sacrifices done. Therefore, if if the sacrifice is done, that leaves three things. Therefore when you do one of the three, you're out of
you're out of minor. Right now. On this day, you're going to hear lots of different fatawa you trust me, this is what I say. Two of the four Some people say one of the four Some people say three of the four, this is an afterlife, is it one of the four, two of the four or three of the four? Right? In my humble opinion, you do two of the four and this is what the majority say and this is what the scholar that I'm also following everybody, the majority is a two of the four. So in our case, once you do the jumla right,
then you're out of your home because you can consider that your sacrifice has been done. However, it makes more sense to have your hair shaved before you go back because then you take a nice shower, just logistically speaking, right simple logistics. Your hair is going to be shaved you're going to be feeling dirty. There's going to be some nicks and bruises and cuts not going to pay and don't worry it looks it looks worse than it feels okay don't worry about it.
And Mashallah, everybody becomes a barber on that day. That's the problem but everybody becomes a barber on that day.
But after the after the the the the stoning. You will find lots of people there. Please note 90% of them are trimming.
You don't want them. You want those who are shaving.
90 if not 95% are using clippers. Right shears like
They use on sheep.
It's the same thing.
And when they use it on you, that's little bit painful, not very painful. But what happens is, they're not shaving, they're trimming. And so you have half an inch or something of a hair left on your head.
And to me that's so nonsensical, because neither is that a regular trim, such as you come back to work the next day, normally, right? Nor is it a shame that you get the reward of the shape. You see what I'm saying, because you want the reward of the shaving, because that's triple reward versus trimming. So you need to be careful, 90, if not 95%, and you need to search for somebody who's shaving. And of course, the sign is using the open shave, you know, and over there, they use the open shave the old fashioned one, you open it up and they put the blade in, okay? That's the old fashioned one point of advice. Make sure your guy uses a fresh blade for you.
Some of them are cheapskates, right? Or do it yourself, if you have some experience and it or you do it to each other. If you have some experience and the
water, if you trim it, then you're trimming it.
Easy ear 10, you've trimmed and you've shaved. You see I'm saying then you've trimmed. That's what you've done. It should be shaving. Look, I mean I have done has plenty of times you will find people, you just have to ask and look around right, you'll find people they'll shave. Once you've done that now Alice, you are Hamdulillah, you will be looking forward to the bathrooms in minutes for the only time in your life. Because there you will now take a shower,
you will take a shower, use Mashallah perfume, soap, you're going to feel like a fresh man. And we hope inshallah, you're literally now a new baby born. That's what the point is now as well. Right? You will feel fresh and rejuvenated and shallow to Allah. And then you wear your regular clothes, and put your perfume on and trim and whatever you need to do. Now it is legit. And then on the 10th, after that, there's nothing for you to do. Once you've done that off, you may delete it off. Because if you deleted a lot off, the only thing is you're going to be in this state of bigger harm, right? And there is no privacy that you have to worry about that anyway. Okay, so you may delete it, I
usually used to delete to the very last day. But again, I mean, once you've done a lot of had, you start taking shortcuts, you don't want to do that, okay, if this is your first hide, you want to do it right, you don't want to take all the shortcuts like I used to do the aim higher than that any, once you do hydro every year, then you started getting a little bit lazy. So you want to do it properly. So maybe on the night of the 10th, when the rush is a little bit less, a little bit relatively less, because there's never going to be it's never going to be quiet in that time. Maybe at midnight you go and you do to offer something like that on the 10th or whatever you want to
whenever your group wants to. Once you've done your toe off, this is your main pull off to offer the father is your main philosophy father, do they have any? You
on the 11th 12th and 13th. All you need to do is to stone right now the 13th is optional, by the way, right? The 13th is optional. What is required is 11th and 12th. But Allah says in the Koran, Montag, jeffie yo mania for that is mighty woman.
Whoever is hasty and leaves in two days, there's no sin. And whoever stays for the third day, then there's no sin. So 11th 12th and 13th. Now you need to ask him wildermann guide the bulk of the Hajaj leave on the 13th. They don't do it on the 13th. Sorry, they leave on the 12th Excuse me. Yeah, so they don't do it on the 13th. So if you're not going to stone on the 13th that you don't need to collect 70 stones. That's if you do another 21. Otherwise, if you're only doing 21 times 21. That's 42 plus seven gives you 49. Right, so how many stones do you need? It depends on how many days you're staying you guys following this right? Ask him why limit group most of the groups, they
don't stay there for the 13 some of them do. And what I've done had some other groups they stayed some of them left. So you need to ask your guy, most of them daily. What do you need to do on those days? Absolutely nothing other than
the stoning of all three.
And that's done. These days. It's so easy once upon a time this was when the crowds and the mass massacres, but the stampedes and all that now panela. I kind of feel cheated. And the the heroes are so easy. It's not. It's not how it used to be. It used to be a real Jihad to go in that time and that was you felt Hajj now it's they've changed everything. So it's hamdulillah although this is done
yeah, it used to be the good old days you come back bloodied and bruised and everything.
So that's on the 11th and 12th. There's only one act left. And that is the dwarf Alberta the farewell tour was the was the was the farewell tour and this is done
The very last thing before you leave Mecca before you leave Mecca. And if you stay for another three, four days, you do offer that when you leave not when hedge finishes. So to offer that is the very last hedge.
It is allowed to combine the top of the tent with often without, this is allowed. If you're sick, if you have the flu, it's might be useful for you. So you delay the main flow off. And you just delay it until the very end. And then you do it with the double intention. Just like when you enter the masjid. You have to look out the window sooner to pray. And then you have to hit the masjid to pray. You said call us Let me pray to God with both intention, right is just so you can combine the two intentions. If this is your first and only hedge I wouldn't suggest that but if you're sick then this is something the way out. And with that
the word you can combine the awful father into awful without now the only issue that remains here
is what are the archives and what are the words you bought the hedge and what are the sunon? Unfortunately, I don't have time to get into this, the detail chart and this will take us many days. Realize that
the otter can have hedge and what is the rochen? If you don't do it, there is no hedge. Okay, they are kind of Hydra very simple Alhamdulillah there's really no problem number one is gotta be the right time and place. Nobody does hedge and show well so no problem hamdulillah right. And nobody does hedge in Memphis, Tennessee, the algo formula, they all go from Oklahoma to LA so that's not a problem, right time and place. Number two you have to be in the state of Islam.
You have to be in the state of your home. You cannot what is the state of Iran remember, it's to say I'm doing Hutch and to make the Nia it's not what you were if a person does hygiene a business suit, they'll have to pay the the hedges valid. Because following this a lot of people misunderstand it head on is a statement or a lot I'm doing hedge number two number three tawaf and sorry of the hedge itself which you've done that offer the father decide if you were done when you came that's your that's your sorry, right? The wife and say, that is the broken and the most important broken is part of that you cannot make up if you don't do these things. Just make a list of this everything else
you can you can make up if you don't spend the night in Basilica, if you didn't stone, all of this can be made up how do you make it up sacrifice? sacrifice. The one mortal sin of hedge which you don't have to worry about is intimacy that nullifies the whole hedge. Otherwise apart from that you cannot do anything that will nullify then the hedge Realistically speaking with this, I open the floor for q&a and this
see this is a you should not do multiple cameras.
Just do one remember in the beginning,
you should do extra top offs.
stuff is done without a home. Yes, yes, yes. Look, log on to the YouTube tonight and see pull off. Most of the people doing the walk are not wearing a hat on the wharf is an independent unit of worship, you do go off wearing your regular clothes.
It's like the hate images for Mecca. For Makkah, the Tahitian Masjid is not off.
So of course you cannot do it every time you enter because it's too busy. But if you come in the non peak season, three months later, five months later you go you do as many thoughts as you want.
Yeah, so this is where we get into the afterlife of what is the minimum amount of staying in minute.
You don't have to stay a minute during the day. You just have to do the stoning.
So nobody says you have to take a minute during the day. Once you've done your stone you can go to Makkah and sit there for five hours. It's the love comes when you come back what is the minimal quantity you need to stay in Mina and here's where you're splitting hairs here.
Yeah, and if you stay the bulk of the night, which is means from Muslim till midnight, you're safe inshallah. So you stay more than half the night in minutes.
Most of you will have your tents in minutes. So you don't have to worry about this issue.
Some groups have fancy hotels in a place called asiya, which is outside of Mina. Right? This is the rare most groups, they stay in minute, you don't have to worry about it. For those who have hotels, and as easier. The issue comes I had a number of hedge packages like this, we would literally go to Mina in our buses and sit there for five hours, and then come back. You don't feel like he copping out. This is a trick out, you know, it's not good. Stay in minute, like the process of it is better.
Oh, yes, this is wrong. You have you've missed a minute. And then you need to pay a video for that. Yes. This is
not a problem. You need to spend the bulk of the night in minutes. Right? If you want to go to asiya. In the daytime, there's not even it's not even my crew, and not others, you could spend the whole day in the hotel. That's not a problem. Because what is required is you spend the night in minute.
That's what's required. So if you spend the whole day and I zz and the air conditioner hotel, not a problem.
There's no worry that the slaughter actually happens. There's no way you can find out. There's no way so the scholars say you assume your Kobani has been done. Because, in fact, the fact of the matter is, the ore body will continue for five days after Hajj they have to sacrifice 30 million sheep and goat. It is statistically humanly impossible to sacrifice that many, you know at one location, you know, so don't worry about it. Assume yours has been done and Allah knows yet.
Otherwise, questions? Yes.
Yeah, I mean, so the question is taking the Hajaj on the night of the eighth. There's nothing wrong with that, per se, but they've given up the sooner
right, as I said, the eighth all of it is optional. If you cancel the eighth, and on the morning, you go to arafat, you're fine. So if they go to arafat the night before.
They don't have it even pay video. There's no co founder nothing, because the eighth is preparation to hire you. It's not the real hedge.
Then the finished image has finished. So once you've done the tawaf, basically in the tomato case, right? Because the toe off is what you delay all the rest you do right then and there at minimum, once you do so often if other than your out everything.
Other questions? Yes.
I mean, it's permissible.
doing multiple cameras,
is not what the Profit System did.
The purpose is that you go there you pray in the house, you do the love, he would do multiple dialogues, he did more thoughts that we can count, he will do multiple drops in a day.
So the notion that we have doing multiple cameras, really is not in the spirit of our religion. oma is one per journey. That's the sooner
and I speak from experience when you do it that way. You actually feel spiritually better. Because all of your energy is dedicated to that aroma. When you go for three hours a day you cheapen the aroma. Right? Do you make it like a ritual habit? You don't want to do that. You do one or you feel spiritually This is the ombre. Then after that you do as many tulips as you want.
Are you doing tomato?
No, then when you've when you've done the ombre in the months of hedge and the months of hedge our show was a little hard doesn't hit you. Right. So if you go after Ramadan to Makkah, you are in the month of Hajj. Okay, so if you've done omura on the first day of chawan this counts as Roma for tomato, as long as you don't come back to your home.
They are judged by the way from Indonesia from Egypt. They do the four month or three month Mashallah Hajj, the way it used to be done in the good old days. Your father must have done those hedges, right. They go and they stay in
maca for two months, three months. And Medina. So if they do it in that way, if they were to arrive on the first of show while in Makkah, that is their own 104 hatch
and they do their own route, then they get out of the harem and they're completely out of Iran. And they stay, they go to Medina, they come back. And then on the morning of the eighth, they then enter the hedge.
Is that clear? Yes.
And you go
and you stand there and you say
you do that
three times and in between them you make your own taxes.
No, no, you so there's a law that is mentioned in cyproheptadine others and you should look it up and memorize it, but this is shouldn't if you don't do it, it's not going to affect the hedge, but you should do this. There's a part of the process that would make facing the cab on Safa and Marwa
and so you say this
and then in between he would make his own to us. Then he would say that again. A lot of people have relied on a lot lol Hamdi will make the draft, then he would make a draft of his own Allah give me the good of dishwater next. And then he would say that there are three times so that's three times a specific draft. And in between the three there are two gaps. And in these gaps you make your own personal to us. You do that at Safa and Marwa Safa Marwah, Stefan Rosa. And then when you get to mobile for the seventh, you just walk away. Because you don't do that. When you finish at madhwa
which is why I said theory is one thing and practices and other.
However you do it is fine.
Yes, life is more important than, than this. So
no, you don't even do anything because you've done. You've done them seven times. The draw is done before you begin when you end.
You understand me? Think about it from from the caliber, you're going to go to suffer. Right? And when you add suffer, you make your first
and then you start walking number one, then you get there draw number two, number 3456. When you start your seventh, you make the two. When you finish the seventh, you're done.
What is the ritual when you finish the seventh
cutting there? You don't make the drive to seven.
You are worried about this issue. I'm telling you, you shouldn't be worried about it. It's not going to happen. Especially because you're so worried about it, then you will remember to do it
until you landed in Jeddah.
Well, even if you said it right before landing, you're fine. But nonetheless, if you forget to enter
because Mashallah you want to be perfect, I would say you should hire a cab and go to the meal cart drive 30 minute distance, not that difficult. It's going to cost you 2030 bucks, not a big deal. You tell the driver when to go outside the closest meal hot. So he'll drive there. And then you enter the heart and you come back in. This is going to be the best for you. If you're with the package, which you're going to be and you don't know how you're going to get there this and that. In this case, you need to pay the penalty
of entering the harem after the meal cost and the penalty is another sacrifice which is $200 $200 you pay the penalty.
Okay, yes. Is it
to make the visit or just No, no no because that it habits any habits? That's when you're outside of MCC and you don't know if you're going to get to MCC. Right. Once you're in MCC I mean you are there so
it would not be in accordance with the Sunnah. But if you were to make the condition then then you are scot free.
If you missed the waffle would die but you have done the waffle a folder.
If you are a woman whose monthly cycle has started
Yes, if you miss it, but you've done it
farther than you can have been done. But you should pay a fee to sacrifice a hoodie for that, because that is a watch that has been left.
But it is excused for women in their monthly cycle is excused. That doesn't have to be the video. But in your case, this is not this is no, it's not excused. So you should pay
few more minutes left, yes.
So realistically, when you make the offer without, it's not in your control, and the driver will tell you, for example, be ready at four o'clock for the toe off finish, right? And
you'll probably finish because you're a Mashallah young man, you'll probably finish by 230 because he's gonna time it according to the most elderly person in the group. Correct? Right. So you're going to start with everybody else, and you should you don't want to delay it because you don't know what's gonna happen. And you're gonna finish by 230, you're like, well, now do I do, you're gonna go and sit, you're gonna get a shawarma to eat, you're gonna get a drink. Because it's beyond your control.
The point being, you should not delay it, except for a reason beyond your control. Right. So you should try to have your bags as much packed as possible, and have it ready to go. And then do it. The latest possible in the real world, it's not in your control. So you do what you can as much as in your control, and inshallah Allah will forgive the list and have the full intention. So you should have your bags packed everything down. But when you do come back, you're going to have probably three hours to kill. But that's not in your control. Right? You didn't intend that. And by the way, he's gonna say four o'clock, it'll end up being six o'clock. This is the way hedges is very
frustrating, very painful. This.
See, the point is doing shopping. Luxury shopping indicates that you knew you'd have time to spend after the offer would that it's not the lawful order. And therefore, the only shopping that is
permitted without any car. Ah ha, is the shopping that you need for the journey. You need to buy water, you need to buy drinks, you need to buy food to eat on the way you cannot buy food and walk into the habit. Right. So this you just buy the provisions to go not a problem. But to go shopping for souvenirs. It shows that this one is not without in your mind. So this is the problem.
Yes, or if it's beyond your control, you just sit there doing liquor waiting to get out but Allah knows you've done your job.
No, no, no, you visit your friends, then you do it. What is the meaning of without? Goodbye? Right? Literally that's what what that means. And the purpose of what that is you say your farewell to the car but to the house of Allah. So the meaning of without the last thing that you do is the word Ah, that's what's supposed to be
Yes, this is one particular month, there is no reason at all. To prevent somebody to shave your hair. If he's in the state of a home. This is
being strict for no reason. It is allowed for him to shave your hair. Even if he cannot shave his hair because you're the one getting out of it. There is no problem in him shaving your hair.
or else there's going to be the issue of who's going to be the first to trim the hair.
Right? The chicken or the egg. People make religion more difficult than it needs to be. There is no such prohibition whatsoever. This is one of those.
Right, a problem. Final question.
Going once going.
So there's a weak tradition in fact, very weak tradition that says that whoever prays 40 prayers in my Masjid with the Gita to the harem, you know, my shofar will be why'd you for him. It's not an authentic tradition. At the same time, what's
With it, he wants to pray 40 prayers there then Hamza Allah.
It is not a requirement of Hajj at all.
It's not a requirement of Hajj. And therefore, if you do it, it's good because you're praying 40 prayers in Medina hamdulillah extra award. If you don't, then there's no problem at all in doing that. It's not even certain that in my opinion, the Hadith is so weak that it doesn't even even if it was slightly weaker, icoca helaas Bismillah. But the Hadith is close to being fabricated, nonetheless, what's wrong with praying a day straight in the huddle? Nothing is wrong with that. So another problem
with this shuttler if there's any questions that you guys have, before you guys leave, email me or see me in the message, not a problem. But my advice to you is choose your religious authority when you're on your way there. And then stick with him. Do not ask multiple people. Hajj is very complicated. And the more people you ask, we're gonna get 10 different photos, you're gonna get confused. And Allah knows you're trying your best. You go to the shear you trust, you ask his opinion, and the story, don't ask 20 times because it's not the time to learn. During Hutch, right? Then I forgot to mention some practical advice of obviously, spiritual advices you should already
know this philosophy always have to
do this for the sake of Allah intend to return a different man or a different woman is the main point of hedge, you come back a different person, right? If you resume the same lifestyle, then
you haven't done hedged properly. So hold point. hedges means manage means to be a changing point in your life, right? You come back a different person. If you're not praying five times a day, you need to start praying. If you're praying five times you start praying, the sooner for praying, the sooner start praying enough, you know, extra Quran extra, there's got to be that commitment, I'm going to be a better person. That's the whole point of hedge the spiritual stuff aside, practical stuff. Number one, always have money in you with you all the time. Always have cash, right? reasonable amount, at least 100 rails, you don't need that much. Number two, always know where you are,
wherever you our main aim was that if out of fat, take a bearing, see where your buses memorize it. Number three, do not leave the group unless you have to. It is always best to stick with the group. Okay, always be with your group. Unless you have to. The only time I tell you to go ahead and do that is from was that if a trainer on the morning of the 10th it's actually easier to leave the group and meet up with your group in your tents because you know where your tents are, right? It's the only time where if you're young and Mashallah you have an hour to walk. Go ahead.
Also, by the way, if you are up to it, the best hedge I ever did was the walking hedge. This will law heat and enjoyment of its own. Because when you're walking, you're away from the smog and the traffic and you with the human experience. Right. So if you're able to be brave about it, when do you do the walking hedge? Basically from our fat on the ninth? I refer to myself as a long walk two and a half hours. That's the long walk. Right? How about fat Mozilla is two and a half Mozilla fatimata hour hour and a half very easy, not a big deal. So if you want to do that stretch, believe me you will enjoy it much more because the walking hedge as soon as the sunsets palace you put your
backpack right your waters with you another practice is always have water. Always have water. Drink plenty of water do not get dehydrated. Right? You have your backpack with you. Food is everywhere. There's people showing me shawarma falafel ice cream. Excellent. You have beautiful memories. No Smaug has the best part of the walking hedge because there's a special road for the walking pilgrims. Right? no traffic, no buses. To me the worst thing of Hajj number one The bathroom is the whole opposite of villa. Right? Number two the smog I cannot stand the smallest of those buses it gets it used to get me nauseous and sick. I hated it. But
if you have fries I said you were going to give the video but the mask doesn't protect you fully. You still get the smoke, which is why my best hedge was the walking Hutch. On the day of alpha. You just have the backpack. You're ready. You're offered you're enthused Yella Bismillah you start walking, you're never gonna get lost because everybody's heading in one direction. Okay, you're not gonna get lost that day. So you walk when you get towards Delhi. You're all alone. You don't have to worry about the bus. You find your place you have your but you have your sleeping bag, right? You have your sleeping bag with you. You have your inflatable pillow, you have your water canister, I
lost Bismillah you have a light dinner packed, you have your dinner you go to sleep, you wake up and then you work you will you work your way to to Missouri for two minute excuse me, and that's really beautiful. If you can't do that, at least do the Missouri fatimata walking if you're able to and if not then you'll have this Miller stick with the group
even between our fat and was Delica
Leave me You're not gonna regret it. If you're able to walk an hour, an hour and a half, you're not gonna regret it from was delaford to Mina. There's a huge walkway shaded, there's no sun at all. You have no problems, water everywhere. As I said you even get ice cream, not a problem. It's a nice experience any UCL like ice cream and not so nice experience that a problem in Shama with this. Even if you're in a room you can eat flavored ice cream, yes, not a problem. hamdulillah and of course the final point, please remember all of us, especially your teachers who have taught you about Hajj, the Muslim Ummah, every please remember them on the day of alpha is the day when two is accepted,
have extra sincere to offer everybody and inshallah May Allah accept your hedge. May Allah allow us as well to do plenty of hedges in our lifetimes. Was that one okay? less than or equal not liable
