SMIL Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah who Allah Allah he will be here woman while Mohammed Al Hamdulillah as you're aware of me everywhere just returned from Omaha. So I wanted to just share some reflections of my own thoughts about having gone at home that after two and a half years of not being able to go because of COVID. And of course by the way, we should be aware that our profit system he performed for cameras in his life we should be aware of this fact of zero. He performed four cameras in his life. The first camera actually was the number of per day via in which he did not actually go for camera but he got the rewards of the camera when he was stopped outside

00:00:35--> 00:01:09

of Maccha and they made to Halina and they shave their hair. He didn't actually enter but Allah gave him the reward of their own rose. So this is the first model. The second one it was the year after that, which was the makeup of ABS seventh year. The third camera was on the way back from thought if when he conquered Maccha he wants to if on the way back he so when he entered Makkah and the conquest of Makkah, he did not wear haram, which shows you can enter mecca for reason without a haram. If you have to do for your doctor, you have a surgery there you may enter without Iran. So he entered as a conqueror without a haram. He went to die if on the way back he did ombre. So this is

00:01:09--> 00:01:11

the third umbra. And then the fourth hombre was one who can tell me

00:01:14--> 00:01:15

that is the fathead the third

00:01:16--> 00:01:19

hedge the hedge hated hedge what type of hygiene you do,

00:01:20--> 00:01:58

not the material. There are needed hedge often also there was an ombre so these are the four arm rods. Now of course, going for Omona is of course a very blessed act. And I wanted to do beyond just the spiritual blessings. It's very important that spiritual blessings our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, tab your open Alhaji will Umrah keep on repeating hajj and umrah keep on repeating them once you do one aim for another. It's not just a one off bucket list you do it tab your open Alhaji will Umbra keep on following up hajj and umrah because they get rid of your two things you said sins and your poverty. They get rid of your sins and your poverty like a furnace gets rid of

00:01:58--> 00:02:38

its impurities so to going for Hajj and Umrah Your sins are forgiven and your poverty because you're spending for the way of Allah so Allah subhana wa Tada will give you back and of course there are many blessings for O'Meara. Our Prophet system said that her jewel more TAMIU Wafula heater Allah the one who does Hajj and the one who does Amara, they are the delegates and the guests of Allah, Allah call them and so they responded to that call. That's why we have this notion of the Hajaj are the guests of all of this from the Hadith, the Hajaj and the Mortimer are the guests of ALLAH SubhanA wa taala. And we know that you know, hygiene and what our Prophet system said that whatever

00:02:38--> 00:03:16

from one moment to the next camera, our president said, all of your sins will be forgiven as long as the major sins are avoided, right. Amara Cafaro to Lima Boehner Houma so from one room, to the next room, Laura, so your sins shall be forgiven. So these are all spiritual blessings, the blessings of tawaf, the blessings of kissing the Blackstone, the blessings of prayer, 100,000, prayers, extra drop sadaqa all of this we all know, but there are also blessings that are of a psychological nature of blessings that we should appreciate and understand. When we go for Hajj and Umrah and it should be on our radar we should be wanting to go for Hajj and Umrah for all of these blessings of the

00:03:16--> 00:04:01

things that I personally again, this is my own reflections and thoughts and whatnot, that Subhanallah we all feel that boost that energy recharge when we go to Makkah and Medina and we thank Allah that we have such opportunities, you know, how do we recharge our spiritual batteries? We thank Allah that He has given us blessed times and blessed places to charge our batteries. Imagine if we didn't have anything special. How would we feel that boost? But Alhamdulillah Allah gave us Ramadan, by the way three months for Ramadan. Allah gave us a time during that time that time is blessing and our energy is recharged and Allah gave us places like Makkah and Medina and Jerusalem

00:04:01--> 00:04:42

when we go there our iman is recharged. So we thank Allah for giving us the opportunity to come closer to him via special times and special places of the things as well that I always appreciate going for Hajj and Umrah is that when you're just sitting there, you see the diversity of the Ummah in a way that you never really appreciate until you're there during hydrojetting ombre people come in Khalifa Jin and Allah says in the Quran, from every nook and corner in the world, they're gonna come to you. It just so happened this time when I was there. I saw large groups from the Central Asian republics that I hadn't seen before. Get a really stand and Kazakhstan and Tajikistan large

00:04:42--> 00:05:00

groups coming from there for some reason they're allowed to come and as you know, because of COVID There's restrictions. It was just so interesting to see Muslims from such places you don't really know about interact with them. So this is of the things you appreciate the diversity of the ummah of the spiritual blessings as well you go for Hajj and Umrah of the psychological

00:05:00--> 00:05:41

Blessings. When you're sitting there when you're praying when you're doing so off. You see people of all different backgrounds begging and pleading Allah making dua for their causes. And subhanAllah. Allah azza wa jal is answering all of their causes. Couldn't a young woman who officia in every single instance, Allah is in tion in a magnificent cause. Allah is answering the dua of the one and you and you are marveling at how Great and Majestic is the creator, that all of the creations asking everyone somebody has a cancer to be cured, somebody's child is sick, somebody is in debt, somebody is a sinner, and they're all begging and pleading Allah around the Kaaba making dua, and you are

00:05:41--> 00:06:19

amongst them as well. And this is indeed one of the signs of Allah's Magnificence, and that Allah is a summit. What is a summit mean? A summit means the one whom everyone asks of their needs. We see this when you were in Makkah that everybody is begging and pleading in their own manner. And you feel a sense of the the album or the greatness of Allah subhanho wa Taala of the spiritual and of the psychological blessings of going when you go for Oman, or when you go for Hajj SubhanAllah. Everybody's enthusiasm goes up. Even the worst sinner when he gets to the MCO when he gets to the end of the Kaaba, even the one who never prays, when you get to their Omura Colosse you're going to

00:06:19--> 00:06:54

be praying to her Jude 3am You're going to the older you're praying, and this is an amazing reality that Allah is demonstrating to the worst sinner, you have it in you to be a better person, he gets that opportunity when he's in that blessed place. The worst of the worst, how many people are committing sins, they're drunkards, they're far from the Dean, when they come for Hajj, when they come from Allah, it is as if they turn 180 degrees. So Allah is showing if you can do it here, you can do it back there as well. This is a gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala of the amazing things as well. And this is something that I was speaking with our differential class of bridges, the Imam of

00:06:55--> 00:07:32

Valley Ranch, mister, we're talking about the same thing. And he mentioned an interesting point, which is very true. He said when people go for Umrah all of a sudden, they're very, very eager to follow every aspect of the Sunnah. They ask you how did you do tawassul Allahu Allah Salam, they ask you should I do the right hander? Should I go this way? Where do I say the Torah car? When do I drink some some? Even though the two raka after though after drinking zamzam. Nobody said it's followed. Nobody says it's broken. It's the sooner you do it. You do it. You don't you don't. But when you get there, the bar is raised. You want to know step by step. Where did he sell Allah said

00:07:32--> 00:08:13

and pray? What did he do? What was the DUA that he made that suffer at Marois? Everybody knows it's so nuts not broken. If you don't do it, your toe off is valid, your site is valid. But when you get there the spirit of obedience. And by the way, nobody asks why is the right shoulder uncovered? Why do we walk fast the first three times what nobody asks. They want to just submit now what a partner, the spirit of of eemaan of Taqwa. This is the essence of worshipping Allah Obadiah. Samir. Now, Walter, I know we hear we obey, nobody begins to find a loophole and questioning this and that that spirit of a trust submission. This is what Islam is about. When Allah says we do when the President

00:08:13--> 00:08:57

says we do. And when it comes to the rituals of Hajj and Umrah they are rituals that we call it an arbitrary automatic audited manner. They're not rational that you understand why is it 718-518-8189? Why do we go counter clockwise, there is no rational reason. It is a reason that Allah says to do and we do. And this demonstrates the real spirit of worshipping Allah. And Allah is showing us just like we don't question him there. Why should we question him over here, just like we submit one way there, we want to do the best that we can. So to we should do over here. So the spirit of worshiping Allah we tasted, and most importantly, and this is the reality that all of us feel the tiredness of

00:08:57--> 00:09:36

the body, and the pleasure of the soul. There are demonstrated to be two distinct factors. Every one of us is tired after hygiene O'Meara physically, it's actually much longer than we thought it will be the walk between self and Mattawa, and jetlag, and the plane and whatnot, haram, it's such a irritation and nuisance on the body. We all know it those that have been, but the way that the soul feels, and the peace and the accomplishment, it demonstrates for us that the body and the tiredness of the body means nothing when the soul is feeling satisfied. And this is of the greatest blessings of worshiping Allah, especially when you put in that tiredness when you put in the effort, and then

00:09:36--> 00:10:00

you get the sweetness of that effort in there. ibadah. So all of these are some of the psychological and the spiritual blessings of worshiping Allah in particular hydro Nomura. So I encourage all of you and myself and shout out to Allah to aim to go for Hajj and Umrah as much as possible spend for the sake of Allah, Allah azza wa jal give you back frequently go between hygiene ombre so that your sins are forgiven and your risk is raised up May Allah subhana
