Bismillah Al Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad in while earlier he was IVIG mine and my beret. So Inshallah, we're going to have a short talk about the blessings of Ramadan and just very briefly go over the field COVID And then open the floor for q&a. And the fact of the matter is that many of us, we kind of takes aroma or something not as big or as as a trivial act of worship. But the fact of the matter is, that aroma is one of the most important and one of the most blessed acts that Muslims can do. And in fact, it is really second only to the Hajj itself and that is why the Roma is actually called the minor Hajj. In fact, you can

00:00:54--> 00:01:34

call the Umrah al Hajj and Allah they can even call it is the smaller Hajj, because you do most of the rites of Hajj and you show respect to the house of Allah subhanho wa taala. So we should go with that Nia when we go for Amara that we are undertaking one of the greatest actions of worship that a Muslim can do, because we are venerating the house that Allah has called his own house. And this place that we are going to is of course a place that Allah declared sacred before any other land. This was the first land that Allah declared sacred. And it was the land that of course, upon the tongue of the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam, it was declared to be the very first house of worship.

00:01:34--> 00:02:17

And Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in the Quran, that the land of Makkah, or the Valley of Bucha has been declared sacred, and it is the most blessed place in the entire world. And therefore Allah says that whoever intends to do any type of evil in this land, Allah will give him the most severe punishment. When a unit V hibbett had simply wanting to do evil in Makkah, our scholars say, if Allah says wanting to do evil in Makkah will get you a sin, then wanting to do good in Makkah will also get you much more reward simply wanting to do good. So when we go for Maccha, our new year should be that we will do as much riba as possible that we will give to the full Quran that we will

00:02:17--> 00:02:58

pray that we will do tawaf and that will of course, do O'Meara and that the mere intention of doing these good deeds, it will, it will magnify the blessings of these good deeds, and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam praised going for ombre in so many a hadith we don't have time to go into all of them, and many of them are mentioned in the lecture that I sent you, but just to get us into the spirit of going for Amara, that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that hajj and umrah el hijo o'mara the both of them, they get rid of your sins and your poverty, two things are gotten rid of just like a furnace gets rid of the impurities in Iran. So when you throw the raw ore

00:02:58--> 00:03:37

into the furnace, what comes out is the pure metal. So our process Adam is describing hygiene O'Meara as that furnace, that gets rid of two things, what are the two things that fall number one, our sins fall off. So just like when we go for Hajj, we expect to come back a fully clean person. Similarly, we should have the same intention where we go from what I know Dr. Umar is not as blessed as hedge, but nonetheless it is right under it, it is the hedge OSLA. So when you go for Omoto, our near should be as well, that will come back as a clean person as a pure person. And also we intend and there's nothing wrong to intend this, that Oh ALLAH I'm spending so much of my money and my time

00:03:38--> 00:04:19

for your sake. And your Profit System has promised that when I go and spend money for Umrah that Allah will eliminate *up or poverty from me, so we want to be eliminated from the poverties that all of us obviously want to avoid. And our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that one Omura to the next room where I will forgive all of the sins between them, as long as the major sins are avoided. So number two LLM rhotic afara, to Lima by number that one Omura to the next Amara, it will be as if it's a cleansing experience for all of the sins as long as the major sins were avoided. Of course, the major sins are like Zina and murder and butter. These are the major sins if we avoid

00:04:19--> 00:04:52

these major sins, then the Omura acts as a cleansing factor that from one genre to the next. So this is an encouragement, we should go for Umrah frequently. And unfortunately, many of us are a little bit lackadaisical when it comes to drama. We're like no big deal, you know, Shala once every decade or so, but our process is saying what that the more cameras you do, the more you will be clean. So one camera to the next camera. So we should already be thinking when is the next time I'm going to go for camera? You should already be there in our mind. Maybe not next year, two, three years from now. It's my Nia to go from what if Allah has given me the wealth to do so. And our Prophet

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that hajj and umrah is one of the two types of jihad. Jihad then

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

Of course the other jihad is the actual hotswap. So he called hajj and umrah. He said that in a huddle jihad in it is one of the two Jihad and this shows us that the greatest physical journey that we can do after the Hustla of a legitimate nature, the second greatest physical journey will be at the journey for Hajj and Umrah and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that raising the voice now here's another point by the way, a lot of us think that Lubbock Allahu Allah bake is only for the Hajj. And this is a big misconception. In fact, the tel BIA the bake Allahumma bake is for the State of Iran. So whenever you're in a haram, you say the salvia and therefore the OMA are also

00:05:44--> 00:06:24

has the Tobia in it is not just for the Hajj, and all of the blessings of the Tobia that we mentioned, when before we go for Hajj, we talk about them, they apply for the camera as well, because the camera is also an act of Tobia where you say look bake Allah Humala, Baker Baker la sharika color bake in the hem that will never matter, like our milk, luxury color. And our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said before he was going for Hajj, he said Gibreel came to me, and he commanded me that I should raise my voice when I say the Tobia. So Allah sent Gibreel to our process and him to tell him to tell his Alma that when they say the Tobia, they should raise their voice,

00:06:24--> 00:07:05

and this Toby as we said, is not just for Hajj, it is also for rombro and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that when the person gives tell me everything that here's the Tobia will intercede for that person on the Day of Judgment. So imagine every rock every tree, every thing that you pass that here's the Tobia, the more you say the Tobia, the more objects will testify that oh Allah this person announced that he's coming for the Hajj and Umrah he announced that he is answering your call. Therefore, we should raise the voice with tell BIA and make it our regular routine. As soon as we enter the Haram now for Umrah we're only going to be in a haram literally for

00:07:05--> 00:07:43

less than half a day. Right? We're gonna in our program, we're entering a haram from outside of Medina. So from literally it's not even like how do we have for five days is literally less than half a day. Why don't we spend extra energy mentally prepare ourselves that for those seven, eight hours, you know, or maybe even less than that if the bus driver is driving the way that they drive, usually maybe even five hours right. Before we get from the method to Makkah, this is the time that we have that we should raise our voice with the Tobia that the bus should be buzzing with the Tobia as much as possible so that we get our sins forgiven and our prophets Allah Allahu Allah He was send

00:07:43--> 00:08:26

them said that whenever the person raises his voice with to tell via the process, some said everything on his right and left even the Hajer and the shedule. They start saying the Tobia as well. So they of course we cannot hear it. But when the inanimate objects here, he people saying that Tobia, Allah azza wa jal gives them the ability, we don't know how. But everything will say the Tobia along with our Tobia as well. And this is a good incentive as well for us to say that Albia as frequently as possible, and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also told us that touching the to look in the corners, which is headdress with a raccoon Yamani, touching these two little cones.

00:08:27--> 00:09:07

They're called Dhokla in the Turo cones touching these tokens, it causes our sins to be forgiven. So we should try our best to physically touch the to record and inshallah we're going at a time. Yeah, it's not it's not offseason, but neither is it peak season is kind of in the middle. So we're going at a time that it's not Hajj season and Hamdulillah. But of course it is the December break. So a lot of people will come, but inshallah we will be arriving in Makkah, relatively little bit later on 9:10pm. And it's not going to be, it's going to be a day that insha Allah nights that insha Allah to Allah, it's not going to be the weekend over there. So relatively speaking, it will be a better

00:09:07--> 00:09:08

time, then

00:09:09--> 00:09:48

later on in the week, but before that week, so Inshallah, my point is that, for those of you that are still feeling energetic and young, maybe you can make your Nia that at least one of the seven, I'm going to try to, you know, touch the Hydras with sha Allah will see play it by ear, I mean, obviously, if the rash is very bad, then we skip that but make it an intention. And by the way, so touching the Blackstone doesn't have to be done only in the camera. You can do it in any tawaf in any throw off. So suppose you come in it is too tired or too tired, you're too busy, no big deal, okay? Then just do the two off the next day, stay awake late at night, you know, 2am 2:30am This is

00:09:48--> 00:09:59

when of course, the rush goes a little bit less. Then you do your toe off and you make your knee that Insha Allah, you know, I'm going to try my best to touch the hedges as well because touching and kissing the hijab is of course

00:10:00--> 00:10:43

is an act of worship, and it does forgive the sins as our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that never does a person raise a foot or put it down when they're going to the toe off or the Hajj or Umrah never. In other words, whenever they're taking a journey to Makkah, never do raise a foot or put it down, except that ALLAH will raise you one level or forgive us him. So every single footstep to the Haramain, every single footstep to Makkah, will give us that reward and therefore Alhamdulillah we thank Allah we live so far away then because when we do go now that far Miss becomes a blessing that we are spending more money than a

00:10:43--> 00:11:24

person you know, from within driving distance, we're spending more of our time and we hope that inshallah this long distance that we're going to travel literally halfway across the world that inshallah Tada we will get the extra charger for that. And our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that the throw off of the cabin is just like the Salah in the most powerful will Beatty Salah tune. So during our tawaf around the Kaaba, we should be in the state of who showed that we have during the Salah, because it is a type of Salah, except that ALLAH subhanaw taala has allowed us to speak in the tawaf and we are not allowed to speak in the Salah, and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi

00:11:24--> 00:12:08

wa sallam would regularly kiss or touch the Blackstone. And we know that the black stone is of course, one of the stones that Allah sent through Gibreel to the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam, and it is a stone from the stones of Jana. And I have said before and a reminder here that if Allah does allow me or you or any of us to be right in front of the Blackstone and kiss it, then just take a milli second to make sure you're kissing at the right space, right spot. Why? Because I mentioned in the theater class three and a half years ago, and I showed you on on our TV screen here, I showed you that one, the Kuramoto, which was a radical is my ad group in Bahrain. They came in they

00:12:08--> 00:12:36

ransacked the Kaaba in, was it 200 Something 270 Whatever Hijra 200 Something hijra, they ransacked the Kaaba, they stole the Blackstone, and they had to break it in order to get it out of the Kaaba. So it splintered. So the Blackstone splintered, and therefore one the Ibis has got it back. They had to put some pieces of the Blackstone in pure silver. So most of what you will see there is pure silver.

00:12:37--> 00:13:18

And there's only some fragments of the Blackstone that are sticking out the rest is embedded inside the silver. So and you will see it clearly. You will see there are seven slithers or seven fragments of the of the Blackstone. So when you kiss, if you're able to, and if not, then your life is more precious than trying to figure out where to kiss, okay, but if you're able to then try to kiss on the actual Blackstone, and if not, in the amount of India, Allah knows you stood in line, you tried your best to get there, and you are able to do as much as you can. And our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam encouraged the Sahaba by saying to them that Allah has made the tawaf and the suffer, and

00:13:19--> 00:13:58

the hitting of the camera was we will not be doing Allah has made it a symbol of a farmer to decree law, you are resurrecting and establishing the Dhikr of Allah in this earth. So the tawaf and the Saudi and the Jamara. No, this is not Jamara time for us, but to to often say this is a karma to the Karela. So this is establishing Allah as they could in this earth. And one of the simple realities of establishing Allah's vicar. The tawaf is a nonstop act of worship 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 30 days of the month, 360 days, it keeps on going, except for the actual salah, and then immediately it starts again. So imagine our process, some saying that Oh, often the psi is a

00:13:58--> 00:14:38

manifestation of Allah's dhikr on Earth, and we see it nonstop. Isn't that the case? Never, ever does it stop. It's something that is a continuous act of worship. So just like Allah should be continuously worship, so to the people are doing tawaf, non stop since the time of Islam, frankly, even before Islam than we should call we're doing power right. So that is a non stop act of worship that is continuing throughout centuries and centuries, and nothing stops it, even the Salah, you stop just for the Salah, 10 minutes, we stop, and then we resume again. So we should feel a part of this continual ritual that has been established from the time of Ibrahim, now you too will take your

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

part and doing that a comma to zicatela on this earth. And also we're going at a season that insha Allah Who Tada we're able to, we're able to take advantage of the militarism and then we'll tasm is the place between the hedgerow password and the door. There is a small area around seven feet or six feet, it's not that much space

00:15:00--> 00:15:44

that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam said that what is between the hedger and the the Bob or the door is a place that whatever a person asked for ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada will give it to him. And our Prophet says, Now this hadith little bit of a laugh is that authentic or not, some say it's slightly weak. So I'm saying authentic now, even if the hadith is a little bit weak, our process and we know for a fact he stood there for long periods of time, and he put his hands up and he beseech Allah subhanho wa taala. So this kind of makes this concept completely valid that between the edge of us word between the hedge last word and the door of the cab between this is an area that is especially

00:15:44--> 00:16:17

sacred for us that we should try our best to go and make dua over there. And you don't have to do this on tawaf. You could do it at any time. So when you were in Makkah, mashallah, we'll be there, you know, four and a half days, we'll be there in Makkah. So any of that time, see what when you can, and if you're not able to touch your chest on the Kaaba, then even it's alright, just take, take a step behind and just make dua, you're still between the hedger and the Bob, you're still between IT. And especially for our sisters. Of course, for them, it is almost impossible to be able to touch

00:16:18--> 00:16:56

the cabinet at that's at that place. But after the hedge of that password, there's this big empty hole because everybody wants to touch the hazard and then they want to leave. So in fact, the rush is not that much. After the hedger right at the tip of the Cabo, you get my point here, right? That it's literally as if there's like a vortex that goes straight to the the hatchet and then after that, it just disappears, because people just walk straight out. And so a foot or two after the hazardous word, it is possible for our sisters in offseason, in the middle of the night, maybe 2am 3am, it is possible for them to kind of come a little bit close and make dua between the the

00:16:56--> 00:17:35

hazardous wood and the door. And again, this is if they are able to reach that area without physical harm and whatnot and you be the best judge of that. Your physical safety is more important than standing at that particular place. Also, when we are in Makkah, we should try our best to fill ourselves with as much as a Muslim as possible. Try even to just stop drinking anything other than zamzam and take a bottle and just fill it and use it in your hotel room as well. For four or five days just try your best to fill yourself with the water of zamzam that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the best water in this world is the water of zamzam. hygroma elordi zamzam This is

00:17:35--> 00:18:16

the best water in this world and our process and I'm said Ma was MZ mo de ma shooty Bella who the water of zamzam will get you the reason why you drank it, meaning before you drink zum zum you make the intention to Allah, why am I drinking samsam You make a dua to Allah, that Oh Allah, I want such and such, Oh ALLAH forgive my sins, Oh Allah, bless my children, Oh Allah, this and that, and then you make dua, so and then you drink. So drinking, ZamZam is one of the causes of dua being accepted. So therefore, for that period that we are there, there we should increase, drinking zamzam as much as possible. And when we finish up the hedge, and sorry, the ombre in this case, when we finish up

00:18:16--> 00:18:47

the ombre, that we know that we're supposed to be trimming or shaving the hair and our Prophet sallallahu has had a made special dua for those who shave as you know, he said three times Oh ALLAH forgive those who shave forgive those who say forgive those who save, then he said forgive those who trim as well. So those who are able to shave at Hamdulillah that is good, and those who are trim Alhamdulillah that too is good. And for those who are taking children for Umrah or Hajj where a lady asked the process and um, she picked up an infant that she had, and she said, yeah rasool Allah

00:18:48--> 00:19:10

can this child do Hajj or Umrah can this child come with me and do it? And the process of them said yes, he may and you will get the reward. So because you have to take care and you are going to be in charge. So those who are going with their children, then inshallah this too there is a a double reward because you are in charge of the the children, and much more can be said, but

00:19:11--> 00:19:44

some basic stuff that when we are doing so, when we entered the Iran, we'll be doing Tobia and just do they couldn't do anything other than that when we get to Maccha. So the Tobia stops when we get to Makkah, or when we see the kava, some people say that there'll be a stop. Some people say when you get to Makkah, it stops. Some people say when you get to the Haram, it stops a slight controversy. And insha Allah I think when you see the hat on, you should stop the Tobia because then you've answered the call. Right? The point is that you're answering the call. What does Lubbock mean? I said this in the Hajj season where we'd give the whole the lecture about the Hajj. The bake

00:19:44--> 00:20:00

means love. That is a word that doesn't exist in English. It doesn't exist in English. Love bar means that somebody called you so I'm answering the call, right? So I have to explain the whole thing in Arabic in English, otherwise, we don't have one word that translates as law

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

But Love by means that somebody invoked you. So you're saying okay, I'm coming now I'm answering the call. So this is what love by means. So the bake Allah Humala bake I'm answering your call, that of course the call is what Ibrahim's call that come for doing it for the title the name of the of the house of Allah for showing respect to the house of Allah will live in Nasi give the Yvan proclamation for people to come and do Hajj and of course, I'm gonna as well to this house. So Ibrahim gave the event or he made the call and we are answering that call. So we say the bake Allah whom I'm answering the call, so when when do you finish answering the call when you arrive? So when

00:20:39--> 00:21:13

do you arrive when you see the Haram when you see the Haram and some people say when you see the minarets of the Haram okay, maybe there's some people don't see the kava, it's technical. It's two minutes difference. The point is that around that time, you stop the Tobia, then when you stop the Tobia, and you start the you don't have to start the toe off immediately. We will be tired, we will check into the hotel. You can take a shower if you want and if you want you can change the Haram even though there should not be a reason because this is not hedging. How do we understand you have been in Iran for 234 days, but in Omaha, we're going to be in your home for five hours. Five hours

00:21:13--> 00:21:51

we're going to be in a haram inshallah not more than that, I hope six hours max. So there should not be any reason to change the Koran but if somebody wants to change the Quran, that is no problem in doing that, and then inshallah to Allah once we are ready and fresh. So our group by the way, just a little bit of logistics. If you want to go by yourself at Hamdulillah, feel free to do so. And my honest and sincere advice. If you know how to do Umrah go on your own because Brahma is an act of worship. And you want to do acts of worship on your own between you and Allah. Okay, Amara is an act of worship, and you want to make your own dua, you want to be on your own pace, going in a group

00:21:51--> 00:22:26

honestly, is not as good, personally speak for you just to be spiritual, right, then going with yourself or your family, that you are now making your own two hours and going as but for those who are going for the first time, they're a little bit, let's say concerned or a little bit, you know, wanting to know that we will have three groups departing from the hotel, the timings will be told you later, but we'll have three groups one hour apart. So whoever wants to go in the first group, just meet in the lobby, we'll go as a group, then the second group and then the third group. And if we go in a group realize that the purpose of the group is just to be logistically together. I will

00:22:26--> 00:22:59

not be doing group do I because I don't believe this is appropriate. You know, some, some groups that go in the wild limb will say everybody repeat after me, right? But in my opinion, this is against the Sunnah of the Prophet system, that when you do tawaf, this is not like praying behind an Imam, that he recites factor how you all say, I mean, this is your act of worship. We're only going as a group so that to give you some comfort that will take you where you need to go. We'll do seven times, then will you know some people a little bit confused. How do I get to Safa and Marwah, understandable first time, you're there, it's a little bit overwhelming. So for those who are there

00:22:59--> 00:23:35

for the first time, then we will have three time slots and maybe every time slot, whoever wants to go 1015 20 will go every time slot. So we will have the three groups coming and again, it is going to be just for logistical support. I will not and I believe it is not right even this is my position. It is not right for somebody to tell you what do I have to make, you know you do as best. And you know what you want to make dua and you should make your own dua, you should come from your own heart and your own test beer and your own Quran, whatever you want to do, it should be between you and Allah subhanho wa taala. So we will just go as a group just for the logistics after we

00:23:35--> 00:24:11

finished the seventh talk. So just a reminder, I hope you've all listened to the video. But if you haven't, please do listen to it just to reminder that a lot of people make a trivial mistake is not the end of the world, don't worry that they make eight to copyright rather than seven. And this is not correct, because you're supposed to do it odd. So when you begin you say Bismillah when you begin, then you say Allahu Akbar and our prophets, Islam if he wasn't able to touch or kiss the hijab, he would point towards it. So for us, 99.9% of us we're not going to touch the Hydras word especially when we begin because we're going to begin on the outside then some of us might work our

00:24:11--> 00:24:16

way in but we always begin most of us on the outside. Okay, so we we

00:24:18--> 00:24:59

move our hand or point our hands towards the hedger and we don't have to face the hijab. You don't stop all the traffic and say Allahu Akbar you're not praying Salah okay, you are processing was riding on his camel, he did not stop the camel. He did not stop the camel when he passed by the edge of the Blackstone, he would simply point so if you're walking you may just turn it a little bit, but he did not stop. And so to stop is of course as for those of us who have been we know the number one cause of of congestion is what is the stopping everything, you know mess and if they followed the Sunnah Wallah it would be such an easy

00:25:00--> 00:25:15

Even in peak season, even in peak season, if everybody's moving, then Hamdulillah. But the problem again is, people just think they're doing better than the sooner, we're not supposed to stop. So as you move along, you just say Allahu Akbar and you walk normal pace. So

00:25:16--> 00:25:56

that is the first one. And you'll begin. So use you begin every show with the Turkish Lira, you begin every circle with the Turkish Lira. Now when you finish, you do not say that it could be wrong. And that's a small mistake. It's here. So here, the wife is not bothered if you say there's just a log, but But I'm saying you want to be precise. You don't say that to Kabira at the end of the seventh. Now people feel weird that I'm just walking away will realize you're supposed to pray the tour guide, that's your ending of the tawaf. Okay, realize that the point is that when you move on, then you go find a place and you pray the Torah, that's like the seal of the Torah. Now, the

00:25:56--> 00:26:34

Torah is sunnah. So if you don't pray, then your toe off is still valid. But technically, you don't do the Allahu Akbar, when you pass the hedger at the finishing of the seventh round. Okay. And I've said this many times, and I'll say it again, do not ever think that you will remember the short in your head. It's very common. I am an humbler, seasoned expert when it comes to hygiene and Umrah and tawaf. I've done more than I can count in terms of O'Meara's, and yet still I get confused, sometimes you're in the crowd, you're in the rush and like, was it five? Was it especially around five and six? That's when it really then when you're in six, you're like, am I beginning? The six

00:26:34--> 00:27:08

are ending the six, right? This is like always, like, you know, okay, I know I'm number six is in my head, is it the beginning or the end, and you really get confused. So the easiest thing to do is to have a marker on your hand, just like keep your hand in a certain position. Or some people literally have a clicker or something or that's fine, or they have this via and they they move it, that's fine as well. I'd rather just follow my hand. And so you just follow this and just say that, okay, and the first now you need to decide when will you shift from one to two, at the beginning of one, are you at one or are you at zero?

00:27:09--> 00:27:45

You understand because that changes everything right? When you start Are you already on one, because then when you finish one, you move to two. So then in reality, you're in the middle of two. Whereas if you finished one, then you move to one, then so you understand the point you need to decide your own language to yourself. But I'm saying logistically speaking is always a confusion. Suppose you're totally lost and you don't know which one you're on. You do in tawaf, as you're supposed to do in Salah, which is that you based on the pain. So if you're confused between five and six, they have pain is five, if you can choose between four and three, the key again is three. So you base on the

00:27:45--> 00:28:10

airplane, get rid of the shock, which is the extra one and then you go as if you're in the lower of the two and then you continue and then that will be acceptable. So after we finished the top off, we then perform the tour guide. It is almost impossible even in offseason to pray the tool to the guard behind macam Abraham directly so you go if possible behind MACOM Ibrahim far away

00:28:11--> 00:28:52

as for directly behind Maccabi Ibrahim, you can only pray there when it is literally off off offseason where the judge and the mortality are very few maybe it will be mid February these days or something of that nature when nobody's coming in the middle of the night at 2am in February, you know something may be at that time then the office so few you probably have you know maybe a few 100 people that's it. Okay, those are very difficult for people like us because we're working we have jobs what not this is only for those who generally they live there or whatever I mean, otherwise we rarely get that so for us don't expect to pray directly behind McCollum Ibrahim, we will go far

00:28:52--> 00:29:34

behind and try to have McCollum Abraham in front of us. Okay, so we'll try to go far behind but still in the direction of macabre him and if we can't find space even there, then okay, we'll just go somewhere else and pray to the gods. And then after that the sunnah of our processing was to fill up with zamzam. So then after that you drink zum zum zum is blessed water so you even pour it on yourself, he would even do will do with ZamZam, no problem. So and there are fountains as you know, taps between between the tawaf and masa and then inshallah we will do our site. I was very sad to see this year that they have put up barriers between the actual mountains you cannot touch software

00:29:34--> 00:29:59

and hardware anymore. And I'm very sad to see this I grew up in the 1980s as a little child playing always every time I would go to camera, I would literally climb all the way to the top. This was my memories of early 80s When I was a kid, 789 years old, that every time we go we'd go I would go all the way to the top because I'm a kid I love it, you know and then come all the way down this year I saw they actually put barriers. You cannot even touch the fan model anymore. You

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

is now a relic. You just see it. As far as I know that still right now but in hedge for short and hide, you could not even

00:30:08--> 00:30:45

come to Safa and Marwa you just come to a little bit of the base and then you have to go back. So we have to stick with the whatever the authorities say. And so we will go seven times between suffer and Marwah. And of course we end the seventh time on Motorola. So you have to walk back anyway but that doesn't count as a short that does not count as a as a as one of the things and after you finish the seventh one right there are the barbershops so our sisters can go back to the hotel, they should have a small scissors with them that is travel safe TSA friendly safe where else that will be an issue so it's very healthy healthy for helpful to the sisters have their own scissors they can

00:30:45--> 00:31:00

use in the hotel room, and for the brothers. They can just go to the barber shops right after you finish Marwa, there's hundreds of barber shops there. So we can just go there and whoever wants to shave, shave or whatever it was to trim can trim. And then of course we are done with the ombre. Now

00:31:02--> 00:31:36

the common question that always comes up and I have given a much more detailed answer in the video so you can see it for those who want to go for multiple cameras. So I said that this is a classical controversy dates back to the time of the sahaba. So whoever wants to go there are free to do so of course logistically that's their business we will not provide second or more or less, you just take tutorials. Taxi, when just go to massage and come back. That's up to you. Not that difficult at all. And if you want to rent your own taxi tutorials means you'll be stuffed with five people. But if you want to take your own, it'll cost you 1520 rails and then you just go and you can even tell him to

00:31:36--> 00:31:37

wait and he'll bring you back not a problem.

00:31:39--> 00:31:41

It's really up to you and whoever wants to Al Hamdulillah

00:31:42--> 00:31:45

I prefer the position that

00:31:47--> 00:32:32

doing too many cameras makes the sanctity of the Umrah, not as holy anymore. You becomes routine. And our Prophet says it was his sunnah and the Sunnah of basically the Sahaba after him to do one ombre per trip. And it makes the OMA feel more special. But some people say I want to do I want on behalf of my mother, she passed away so okay, for that I understand, you know, I mean, it's not haram, it's not wrong, but also do realize that, yes, it is true that the apostle or the general ruling is one O'Meara per trip because then you will feel more enthused more, you will value the Umbra more, but whoever wants to do it, then it's not a problem. That's that's permissible. But some

00:32:32--> 00:33:10

of them I would say this goes against the Sunnah, and others Imam Malik and others are even more strict in this regard. That in fact, Imam Malik and others did not even want person to go for o'mara twice a year because he said, I want to devalue the camera. Don't make it a routine. So even he didn't want people to do it even twice a year. So the camera should be once a year just like to hedge. Don't go more than that. And not because he wants to not tell you to do worship, but because you want to keep the sanctity and the feeling of all that you go for Umbra in that feeling that you don't want to make it into a routine habit. So these are some of the main points and inshallah Tada,

00:33:10--> 00:33:37

we're gonna open the floor for q&a, please realize that my q&a right now is not logistics. It's about the fifth as for the logistics, what time and who and why that will be brother Dinesh Inshallah, towards the end, come a little bit more about the logistics about our particular package, but from my side, Inshallah, we can now open the floor for q&a. So let's begin with our live audience here. And then those brothers and sisters online as well they can participate by

00:33:38--> 00:33:40

by emailing or

00:33:41--> 00:33:49

by emailing and shallow data. And you have received the email how to do that in sha Allah Allah. So questions from our audience Bismillah.

00:33:50--> 00:33:50


00:33:52--> 00:33:55

Are there any recommended or specific laws during the study? And

00:33:58--> 00:34:40

are there any recommended two hours between a fourth off and sorry. So there are some do hours that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and especially between the rukon Yamani and the 100 US word, we know that he will tear up and it no for dunya has no further hasn't opened up enough. So this is just for that last quarter of the Ottawa and when he would start the Safa and the Morula. So there is a long dua that you will find in your booklets of Amara booklets of Hajj and Umrah. He would stand on Safa and Marwah face the table and say, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, he would say for

00:34:41--> 00:34:42


00:34:43--> 00:34:59

sadaqa what are the winners? Rob? There was a gene that was a major hazard, but what are the La ilaha illallah wa Leia Microcenter de novo we'll create a cartoon and then he would make long to us. So this is on suffer and then on Marwa. So there are certain things narrated but for the bulk of it, we just do our regular

00:35:00--> 00:35:12

liquor, regular liquor or open up a must have very good you open up a Quran you have your phone, use your iPhone, iPhone, read the Quran, just read some Quran and just make dua to Allah subhana wa Tada. Okay, Han was on this ideas

00:35:15--> 00:35:17

is there any criteria on this?

00:35:22--> 00:35:26

Trimming is anything that constitutes trimming. So if somebody

00:35:27--> 00:35:42

sees you and sees that you've had a trim, then this is trimming as long as it's something that is, so it must be for the entire area. Right? And if one of us is bald, I'm getting bald man was myself as well. You are not bald, you're half bald. So give yourself half credit.

00:35:45--> 00:36:01

So, if somebody is bald than the scholar say for him, he should just dab Budan just as an act of a powder. Just put the shaving over his head just to show Allah azza wa jal that he's doing it even though he doesn't have hair. Okay? Yes.

00:36:09--> 00:36:18

You like we just said so you will just shave even if there is nothing, you will just do it that Buddha will Allah just as a showing Allah that this was an activity bother. Okay, yes, it's too good.

00:36:21--> 00:36:59

Yes, you can trim your own hair, not a problem at all. We have a question from online that. Can I take a shower once we arrive in Makkah, and the sister is saying, can we change our garments and undergarments because we might be tired or sweaty or whatnot? Yes, as we said, you can take a shower, and you can change all the garments, even for the men, they can change into another Iran if they so want to. And for the sisters, if they want to change whatever they're wearing, they may do that as well. questions from online giving the Ebola breakouts? Is it permissible to wear a mask? And do the cuff Farah? Or is this not a valid excuse? So I'm not going to talk about the medical

00:36:59--> 00:37:42

issue of whether one should wear mask or not from a medical perspective that's up to you on your doctor? And how effective that is? That's not my business. But from a field perspective. If you feel that you wish to wear a mask scholars defer this surgical mask and our times is it one of the things that breaks the conditions of Iran not breaks but breaks the the shoot or the the issues that are haram in Haram does it break it or not? Because it's not fully covering the face is just covering the mouth in the ear. So how technical Do you want to be? There are one group that says that this is not really covering of the face is just covering the nose and the breathing apparatus, right. So

00:37:42--> 00:38:18

they say no Katara is needed. And another group of modern scholars says no, it is covering the face because it covers basically most of the face. So they say go with the majority. So it is a gray area. And Alhamdulillah. The Kasara is very affordable for us from America. Right? It's not something that is so you feed six people, for example. So you buy food for six people, and then you give it to the people. You can see they deserve the food. And that's enough for aquafaba. So my suggestion would be even though technically fake wise, I sympathize with those who say it's not covering the face, no cathedra is needed. But just to make your heart at ease. We're allowed to

00:38:18--> 00:38:58

break some of the shrewd of Iran, we're allowed to break them If there is a legitimate need. And for the one who is genuinely scared of Ebola, and they feel it is a legitimate need. And that's not my business to say whether it's legitimate Ebola or not in Jeddah, or Saudi, that's not my business, ask the doctors but if you feel that it is something you are worried about, then you may wear the mask. There is no sin on you. And just for your own heart sake, I will say feed six people, even though technically I say I don't see this as breaking the ground because you're not covering the entire face. If we finish the top off during the Makoto timings of Salah, should we pray to sunnah

00:38:58--> 00:39:16

or not? This is a classic controversy that dates back 1390 years back to the earliest W and W of your own that this is the classic controversy. Suppose you did your toe off after acid and you finished still after after this before Maghrib? What do you do?

00:39:17--> 00:39:53

So three of the modahaus say that actually two and a half because when the mother has to mature to hire, say that you wait until then you pray to DACA. And one and a half of them are that had basically one in one rewire say that you should go ahead and pray. And in my humble opinion, it makes sense that in the Haram in Makkah, there is no mcru timings because the Kaaba is in front of you. And I kind of sympathize with this opinion that there is no mcru timings. When you finish the throw off you pray to God because the cab is right there. So the confusion that somebody might have while you're worshiping the sun or whatnot, it will never happen inside of the Haram and this is an

00:39:53--> 00:39:59

opinion within the humbly method and other than that there is no mcru timings for the kava itself.

00:40:00--> 00:40:10

And in any case, yes, if you want to pray immediately not a problem there. Can we drink zum zum at any time or just between

00:40:12--> 00:40:26

the wharf Oh, sorry, sorry. Yeah, between dolphin sorry, Safa and Marwa Is it a legislative session, so you may drink thumbs up at any time even when you're doing I'll often say you can drink zamzam but it is especially a sunnah between the throw off and the sorry.

00:40:28--> 00:40:45

It is especially a sunnah because our processing them did it. So just because he did it, we should follow it. Okay, so when you finish the toe off, on your way to say, you just stop and there are they actually have a place over there. Lots of tabs for zum zum because of the sooner so we should try our best to do it.

00:40:46--> 00:41:21

Somebody already asked if I do two cameras in a shave after the first What do I do for the second I already said this to our brother that if you have shaved and the next day you go for ombre, you still are completely bald, go ahead and just symbolically shave even if you just purchase a safety razor from down there and just quickly do it yourself. Just to show Allah subhanaw taala that you have done the the shave so you just do it symbolically, just like we do tambem symbolically, there is no water, but it was showing Allah azza wa jal that we are doing it once you finish there Omar, what are the recommended acts of worship and Maccha throw off the off the off as much throw off as

00:41:21--> 00:41:27

possible. Between every Salah just go to toe off as much stuff as you can do number one, number two do

00:41:28--> 00:42:04

one of the main reasons we're going to Makkah is to make special to us for our needs. Because the dua of Maca is one of the most precious to us. So we go to Makkah to make those dollars we should have in our head. Some of us write it down, no problem. Some of us put Word documents or whatever Google Documents, no problem. So that you know what do you want to make keep it in mind. So lots of dua over there. And then every good deed Quran zikr sadaqa. In fact, what I recommend people to do is to tell their family and friends that look I'm going to Makkah give me any charity you want

00:42:05--> 00:42:46

any extra charity you have Give it to me I'll be as long as you're trustworthy, obviously. We're not telling you to stop but Allah do something. So if you're a trustworthy guy, so anybody has 550 $20 So now you have Mashallah. $1,000 sadaqa. Right, you have five days in Makkah, and there are so many people and what I tell our brothers and sisters, especially the number one persons people you should give in the Haram are the workers of the Haram those people that are dressed in the the cleaning clothes, they are paid, literally pennies, poor people Wallah. I mean you feel for them, they're treated in a way that is really heartbreaking. Many of them are genuinely good Muslims, you see,

00:42:46--> 00:43:14

mashallah, the big beards and they, they feel enthusiastic, they get paid maybe $100 a month or something, you know, maybe 150. Now, when I was there, when I was there living the guy told me he gets paid less than like it was 300 and 100, less than $100 a month that can you imagine he has to send money home, and he has to take care of himself and this and any these people, you know, so I know this hurts for to say this. But my general philosophy is not to go to a professional beggar.

00:43:15--> 00:43:40

This is my general philosophy. Now this is my opinion. You can take it or leave it. I do not give to professional beggars. Because I have lived there too long to know. These are gangs. These are scams. And what is really, really pathetic is that the leaders and masterminds of these scams, they are creatures, they are animals, they take innocent babies, and they deform them.

00:43:41--> 00:44:15

So that you see all of these kids without a hand without this. Where do they come from? Now? Of course, the flip side, somebody says it's not the kids fault. I agree with you. It's not the kids fault. But where's that money going? It's not going to the kid Wallah. I wish I could do something at a national level, you know, kid, they help these kids. But in the end of the day, these are gangs and they take these children to stifle Allah, they mutilate them, they do this and that and then you that's why I remember once that somebody said to me, why is that that Mark is full of deformed people, deformed beggars. I haven't seen these different beggars, so anywhere in the world, you

00:44:15--> 00:44:48

know, the reason is, because these are gangs. It's a very sad thing that happens there. And there are professionals that are doing this. So it's a sad reality. I mean, you know, I don't know what to what to tell you. I don't know what to tell you. And these children, these young people, and then eventually these children get older and you'll see, you know, men and women, all elderly without an arm without a limb. I mean, I'm sure some of them are genuine, I'm sure. But I know for a fact that the scams and the professionals are more. So my philosophy is I never give to

00:44:49--> 00:44:59

you know this and you you just keep your eyes open and you'll find a family from this country from that country living out in the home. You see they don't have anything there have their bags with them. They can't even afford it.

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

Hotel, give to them.

00:45:02--> 00:45:37

Why would you want to give to somebody that, you know, they have made their life into begging but this is my advice by the way, it's up to you. And you know, I mean, I'm not telling you not to give to them. From a fifth perspective, this is your position or whatnot. But for me personally, I I cannot give to them when I know there are genuine people that are not asking, they have dignity, they deserve the money. So if you find 1002 I mean if you collect $1,000 That's mashallah 3700 is a good amount, you know, so you give these workers 200 300 rails for them, that's a good amount. And if you find somebody really good at 500 Why not? I mean, these people, they're living single lives,

00:45:38--> 00:46:12

their wives and children are back home, you know, they cannot they're not allowed to live with their families. Sometimes they go back once every two or three years to visit their children. I mean, speak to them Malay they all speak Urdu anyway, I mean, you know, most of them are you know, older Bengali speakers anyway, speak to them. How can I met Where are you from? Go give me you know, get never can tell me about and you will see man their stories are so genuinely you know, heartbreaking. How could you not help out this guy? So my opinion is there are plenty of people to help out. So collect the money from family and friends and make this another act of worship. The question was

00:46:12--> 00:46:28

what acts of worship this is one of the things that is so easy to do, you just become the medium, Allah will reward you because the money is in your pocket not even because you gave it you're collecting from family and friends give me some money by the way. So collect some family and friends Inshallah, and we'll go and we'll give it to, to to the people in Makkah.

00:46:30--> 00:47:18

So, it is the dua during say Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar Allah but Allah has long supposed to be set at the top of Safa and Marwah all seven times. So as I said, our prophets are some when he began the Saturday at suffer, and then at Marwa and then Safa and Marwa, he would stop and face the tibula and stand there for a long period of time. This is sunnah it is of the finer Sooners. Many times people don't have the time to do that. They're, they're tired, they're with family. So if you just walk it is completely fine. No problem. But our Prophet system would spend a good amount of time on the mountain, making dua to Allah. So yes, it is sunnah all seven times. Once again, when you finish the

00:47:18--> 00:47:36

seventh, you don't stand, you just walk out. And the finishing is the shaving or the trimming. Just like when you finish the seven throw off. You don't do tech bill. Similarly, when you finish the seven series, you don't stand you just walk and you're done. So yes, the responses all seven are soon to do.

00:47:37--> 00:47:40

The brother says that when I shave my hair, do I have to shave my mustache as well?

00:47:42--> 00:47:53

No, you don't have to shave your mustache or your beard. You may keep that in sha Allah. In fact, you should keep the beard you should trim the mustache as the senator but you don't have to do it at the Haram timing.

00:47:55--> 00:48:01

So the sister is saying that she will be in her menses most likely, what is permissible in Medina and Maccha

00:48:02--> 00:48:27

in the time of dementia, so if you feel that you will be in menses for all of those days, in Makkah, this is a bit of a problem, because we'll be in Makkah for four and a half days. So if you feel your ad, your routine is such that it will be overlapping that entire stay, then this is a bit of a problem. And

00:48:29--> 00:48:34

Wallahi I mean, honestly, this is not in your hands, of course.

00:48:35--> 00:49:10

In this case, I actually suggest speaking to your doctor and seeing if you can take medication that will not be harmful, as long as it's not harmful so that you will be able to delay. The menses even though I don't like interfering with the natural cycle. But in this particular case for Hajj and Umrah it actually makes sense once in a lifetime or once every few years that you delay it for a few days if it is possible. If not If there's any other reason, or I think it might even be too late to start the procedure. We have some doctors here, maybe it'll be too late even right now, because we're leaving in two weeks. For whatever reason, if that is not the case, then in this case,

00:49:12--> 00:49:49

books have Fick would say that you should remain in Makkah until you're able to do their Umrah. This is what the because in those days, there were no flights. If you had to wait a day or two, you'd wait a day or two and then catch up quickly because your caravan will be going slowly. If you're by yourself with your husband, they can be faster to catch up. So the books are fake would say that you just wait until your man says are over and then you finish up and then catch up with your caravan. And that's a very good opinion. I suggest to you if you're able to do that. And it is technically you can even in our group, it's not hedge, which means the flights are negotiable, and has the

00:49:49--> 00:49:59

fights are almost set in stone and Roman other fights aren't negotiable, speak with data set and see if it can be arranged, if it cannot be arranged and you are not able to do this. Then in this

00:50:00--> 00:50:37

position you must follow the borrower opinion. I don't like saying this, but it is a borrower. And that is that you performed the toe off in that state even though I don't like to do this, but it is a borrower. There is no other alternative. You're in there haram, you need to do it in that state. It's like the one who cannot do will do and to not touch his water. What should he do? He simply prays in that state. It's about aura is not the general rule. So if that is the case, then you have no alternative and speak to me in sha Allah, you're coming with my group, so speak to me and we can go in more detail as for Medina and what you can do. I mean, you can do all the other acts of

00:50:37--> 00:51:08

worship. You can do all of the other two hours and vicar. Of course, you're just not going to pray. Sada that's it and you can go to the courtyard of the Harlem and just sit in the courtyard of the Harlem I would suggest you don't go inside the Harlem but even if a person went inside, there is in controversy you should the woman in menses, is she allowed to go inside the masjid or not? Some of them say yes, I'm going to have to say no. So it's not something that is Iijima or clear cut, there is a gray area. So if you just to be on the safe side, stay in the courtyard. You know the large courtyard outside of Medina stay in that and in the home as well stay in the courtyard outside,

00:51:08--> 00:51:12

don't go inside the physical structure until the menses are over.

00:51:13--> 00:51:23

Question. I want to perform hijama are there can you suggest anybody? You know what I will find out for you? Yes, I can. But I'm not responsible.

00:51:24--> 00:51:27

What is hijama? Blood Sucking,

00:51:28--> 00:51:33

copying, copying you cut? And you? You know,

00:51:34--> 00:51:45

but I will tell you people but it's up to you to trust them or not. I can easily find out for you. I have good friends who know people who do hijab, okay, but it's your liability, not mine.

00:51:54--> 00:51:59

Yeah, the thing is, where are you going to do the hijab? Which part of your body if you do it on the back of your head?

00:52:00--> 00:52:02

There we're going to be vicious gashes.

00:52:04--> 00:52:05

It's not that bad.

00:52:09--> 00:52:25

What's the significance our process and appraised Jama more than he praised any other Schufa he praised Jama as a means of curing more than any other Chifa there are over 20 a hadith about the blessings of hijama.

00:52:27--> 00:52:32

Cupping, cupping, right? So bloodletting ganiyu, like you and

00:52:33--> 00:52:43

no, no, no, no, no, he the brothers just asking he wants to do hijama it's nothing to do with ombre. No, you can do hijama at any time of your life. Nothing was wrong. But

00:52:45--> 00:53:12

but the thing is, yeah, the 65th 1314 15 is the best time. But the thing is, because you're going to shave your hair in Makkah. And because the most common place of hijama is the back of the head. So a lot of people they want to do hijama in Medina, because then when they go to Makkah, then the hair will be shaved anyway. Because if you were to do a hijama at any time of the year, in here, they'd have to shave half of your hair.

00:53:13--> 00:53:52

And that looks very awkward. That's why a lot of people combine the hijama with the camera because of the shaving that's the only reason. Otherwise you don't have to get hijama in the back of the hair. You can get into head you can get and depending on what your ailment is. Now you go to the hijama it's a doctor, it's alternative medicine doctor just like these other alternative medicines, acupuncture what are the alternative? So there are doctors that are doctors of hijama and they train in that field. So you tell them I have headaches Now the most common thing I have had plenty of friends that have told me this that they have migraines or and the hijama helps them plenty of

00:53:52--> 00:54:15

friends. I have never done it. I've never heard that I had that issue of magaziner but a lot of my friends have done it and they have told me it has helped them immensely. And so I mean whoever wants to I mean that's their business, I can help you so the brother who asked the question in sha Allah Allah I will find out for you but again, liability is yours you go and you judge the guy yourself. I'll just tell you that this has been recommended by my own friends but other than that it is yours.

00:54:16--> 00:54:19

So are we allowed to drink caffeine during Ramadan?

00:54:21--> 00:54:25

I will drink my mocha and mocha and you will see me shout Allahu Allah.

00:54:26--> 00:54:35

You will see me doing that. So you will find see inshallah that it is halal insha Allah to drink a mocha in Makkah. Okay, other questions were done over this year. Yes.

00:54:41--> 00:55:00

So do we have to have wudu during tawaf, and say, the majority opinion is that yes, you should have wudu and it is the safer opinion to do and therefore insha Allah Allah Allah, you should have wudu however, Ibn Taymiyyah and others they

00:55:00--> 00:55:29

A they felt that it is not necessary to have although before you do tawaf so my suggestion to the people that come with my group is the following. Always make sure you have although before you go, but in case your will do breaks in the middle of the tawaf then in sha Allah Allah you can resort to advantageous opinion because there's no explicit evidence to say that you have to have wudu before going off okay

00:55:30--> 00:55:41

off as for Saturday no scholar in the history of Islam ever said you have to have all by unanimous consensus sorry, you don't have to have

00:55:42--> 00:55:47

there's no afterlife at all the afterlife was over two off okay.

00:55:50--> 00:55:52

You have to finish it okay.

00:55:54--> 00:56:07

So, the brothers saying if we have to break the middle of the bow off and then come back. So our scholars say if the break is trivial and for a reason, then you may resume from where you left off. Classic example the salah

00:56:08--> 00:56:22

if the break is trivial and for a reason so that will take three four or five minutes that is for legitimate reason. No problem. If the break is long, and for no reason, not a legitimate reason then you start from the beginning. Okay, yes good.

00:56:24--> 00:56:36

Are you coming with us this year? No. Next year inshallah you're coming, make the knee inshallah next year you're coming inshallah. Next year. I told him next year Sharla Halas we have a witness in the back that will make sure you live up to your promise

00:56:45--> 00:56:47

Yes, between the hedgerows within the door

00:56:49--> 00:57:02

Yes, the corner it's around six seven feet. It's not that small. You can easily have eight nine people squeezed in and then even if you don't touch it, you're in the second third fourth row have the men squeezed up Shala

00:57:09--> 00:57:12

You mean the door and the hedger the door and the

00:57:14--> 00:57:32

Yeah, so that's the hedger Yeah, that that that is not that is not the Sunnah place to do it? Yeah, there's not the Sunnah place but neither is it wrong. Anywhere in the Kava is good. So anywhere over there is good, but the most blessed places between the hedgerow password and the door.

00:57:33--> 00:57:34

Okay, yes.

00:57:42--> 00:57:43

Looking at this column

00:57:48--> 00:58:34

so the brothers saying is it an act of worship to merely look at the Kaaba, there is a fabricated Hadith that says that merely looking at the Kaaba is a bada. The hadith is fabricated. However, looking at the Kappa should make your iman go up. And you should feel a sense of who sure and humbleness and thankfulness that you are there. And that is definitely a part of iman. So yes, but there is no Hadith. But there's no Hadith looking at the Kaaba is, is very bad. But looking at the Kaaba should make you feel emotions of Riba. And in those emotions, you should make dua to Allah. Yes. And Wallahi it is a sign of weakness of iman, if being in front of the Kaaba, and you are not

00:58:34--> 00:58:59

moved, isn't that the case? You know, I mean, if you're in front of the camera, and you're not feeling that all, this is a problem, you know, so this is a sign of weakness of image. So we have a question from online. That Can I pray in the hotel with the congregation, my dear brother or sister will law respect to you, you're coming with my group, but why are you coming all the way there to pray in the hotel.

00:59:00--> 00:59:44

I mean, you have spent money and you have been time. And now I understand Wallahi and Hajj, I fully understand the timings of Hajj, it's crazy. And I prayed in the hotel lobby, you know, when you go down, it is literally connected to the harem. I prayed there because by the time you get there, you cannot even go outside of the you go 15 minutes before you cannot even go outside, I understand but we are not going at that peak season. And if you leave 10 minutes before you will easily get to maybe even soft oil on the roof if you're a brother, maybe even the front row you can see the Haram beneath you. So, I would say unless you are elderly or sick, why would you want to do that right and

00:59:44--> 00:59:55

as for the fifth perspective, if this will move or not connected, then you praying in the hotel lobby or the hotel masala will not constitute the GEMA

00:59:57--> 00:59:59

because the so forth have to be connected and when

01:00:00--> 01:00:02

Are those so forth connected, that we can hedge?

01:00:03--> 01:00:17

Otherwise the so forth are not connected from the haram to any of the hotels. It's not that busy. You know, I mean, unless things have changed dramatically. I don't think it is i i haven't been for in December for many years, but I don't think is that busy? Yes.

01:00:22--> 01:01:06

Yes, praying in the Hatim is highly encouraged because praying in the Hatim is the same as praying inside of the Kaaba. So you will get the rewards and following the Sunnah of praying inside of the cabin because the Hatim is inside the cab and it is a mercy from Allah. The Hatim is the semicircular rounding. The Hatim is inside the cab, and Allah in His wisdom and mercy before the before the prophethood began, what happened we all know that the Quraysh ran short of funds, and so they built a cabin smaller than they should have. And this was Allah's design, because that is why to this day, that area is open. Otherwise it was closed for 4000 years. Imagine for 4000 years since

01:01:06--> 01:01:21

Ibrahim's time up until the Prophet Muhammad says no it was closed and the Quraysh would prevent people from going inside except those whom they allowed just like every Islamic government did the same thing even to this day to go and pray inside you need to get royal permission.

01:01:22--> 01:01:48

In some ways it makes sense Imagine if they open the door what would happen just imagine if they opened the door there would be mobs and people would die you understand this you need a permission and especially what not once a year twice a year that happens. So it makes sense. So what has Allah azza wa jal in his wisdom done instead? The head team is open. So the Hatim is the cat but inside the cab when you are praying there you are praying inside the house of Allah

01:01:49--> 01:01:52

and so it is definitely a place we should try to go pray and

01:01:56--> 01:02:04

technically you can pray in any direction but been since everybody is facing the Gabba he would look very weird if you turned around and did it yes

01:02:09--> 01:02:10


01:02:17--> 01:02:17

I have a

01:02:20--> 01:02:21

positive experience

01:02:35--> 01:02:38

actually feels almost instant

01:02:53--> 01:02:54

my phone

01:03:07--> 01:03:09

mashallah, mashallah

01:03:15--> 01:03:17

I know this is very unique.

01:03:19--> 01:03:20

Yes it does. zamzam has a unique flavor.

01:03:24--> 01:03:25

And I was so

01:03:27--> 01:03:29

inspired by my own experience

01:03:38--> 01:03:39

everybody in

01:03:41--> 01:03:41

this room

01:03:43--> 01:03:46

anyway, when I opened it

01:03:52--> 01:03:53

the flavor was

01:03:55--> 01:03:59

just my cardio in spite of the fact that it has the label

01:04:03--> 01:04:06

has the name of the king of Saudi Arabia

01:04:12--> 01:04:23

his name so I cannot answer to this obviously, maybe the guy sold you wrong. So sometimes what they do is they take the bottle which is legitimate, and they refill it with regular water to sell

01:04:31--> 01:04:59

yes, there. Now, if you if you purchase zum zum, from the places within the vicinity of the Haram those the immediate replaces, generally speaking, they're not doing scams, generally speaking, but there are people that will take that bottle now the bottle is legitimate because if it has that on it, they have a ministry for them affairs or they have a branch of the ministry. So if it has that stamp on it, the bottle is legitimate but then what happens is there's

01:05:00--> 01:05:13

stuff with a lot of black market isms Um, can you believe right well Allah heat this is the state of our OMA that there's a black market of false Islamism so they will take the bottle and they'll just sell you regular water and they'll earn living off of that so

01:05:16--> 01:05:18

yeah so I can't I mean

01:05:20--> 01:05:26

Okay Alhamdulillah insha Allah keep that point and mighty sha Allah make sure that some Zoom is the real one. So we have questions from online

01:05:28--> 01:06:00

is the dua at the first sight of the Kaaba Moosejaw are accepted. It is authentically narrative that some of the Sahaba when they first saw the kava would stop dead in their tracks and make long too. So whoever wants to do that, that is good. But there is nothing from the Prophet system in this regard. So some of the Sahaba when they're walking in and they saw the cab, they would stop there, but also look at the people behind you. If you're going off season and it's empty, then go behind the pillar and make dua no problem. But if there's a long line behind you, keep that in mind and don't stop the light Yes.

01:06:09--> 01:06:19

During the Salah, should one look at the Kaaba or look down. This is another classic controversy that goes back 1200 years from the ancient times that in Makkah,

01:06:20--> 01:06:58

should you look still down or look at the Kava. And technically speaking, one would say the Sunnah is always to look down. But it is my position that if our iman is very weak, and looking at the cabinet increases are short in the Salah, then the goal of having a crusher is more important. So if you feel that looking at the Cabinet will increase your house you're then having for sure is more important. So in my opinion, it is not a problem to do. So any case nobody will say said mccluer How long nobody would say that. But the issue is, which is better to look down or look at the camera. And my response is whichever one gives you more sure is better. We have a question from online.

01:07:00--> 01:07:08

That is there more reward for staying in the house, some examples sleeping there, and to spend most of the time in the home.

01:07:09--> 01:07:46

There's nothing inherently more rewarding if you sleep in the home versus sleeping in your in your hotel room. So it's not you should not make it your goal that you're going to spend the night in the home. But whoever wants to spend more time there, no doubt it is better in your wakeful state to go and sit in front of the cabin, read Quran and do zikr no doubt. But in and of itself, it's not something that you should prefer to spend the night inside of the home rather than inside of your hotel. Even though it is narrated that sometimes the process some slept in the harem. In fact, according to one opinion, Islamic Mirage took place when he was sleeping in the harem, according to

01:07:46--> 01:08:11

one opinion, that he was sleeping in front of the cab, and it is common and you will find people sleeping there in front of the cab. But there's nothing inherently more rewarding to sleep in the Haram. Rather, I would say it is better for your dignity men and especially women, there's no question, man even it is better for your dignity and whatnot that you sleep in the regular base and go in alert for that wakeful state to the home. Mother says that

01:08:12--> 01:08:37

she might have to breastfeed her child during the tawaf can she stop and then resume or we said yes, you may stop in this case, if there is a need, you may legitimately go to the side and cover yourself and feed the child and then resume from where you left off because this is a small amount of time you know 15 minutes or so, that is acceptable that you are a mother that needs to take care of the infant.

01:08:38--> 01:09:18

Can I make will do with zum zum not just can you you should make will do exams it is soon to make will do with zum zum you should make will do with Zamzar Is there something called Farewell tawaf for the Romola trip No, there is nothing called Farewell tov. You don't have to do the last thing as a throw off. But some scholars have said out of a ticket, you should but there's nothing in the Sunnah. But some have made class and they've said okay, just like hedge, you know, there's the farewell throw off. So similarly there should be one in Omaha, but there's nothing there's nothing legal, but it is a matter of a ticket item. So I would also suggest that it is good and healthy that

01:09:18--> 01:09:25

you do auto off before you leave but it is not wajib smartwatch. Unlike hedge it is wajib to do the farewell throw off.

01:09:26--> 01:10:00

Someone says about bleeding during the head on and off. Bleeding does not break anything to do with the forearm and the will do. So if somebody is now we're talking about bleeding. It's almost somebody stepping or I have a nail bleed, that type of bleeding. Obviously the feminine blood is another issue that you're in the menses but any other type of bleeding a cut or a scar. Somebody steps on you that bleeding does not break anything of the Haram or a voodoo. So if it's a small scratch that you don't have to worry about continue if it's a severe

01:10:00--> 01:10:07

Think you need to get treatment for it, that's a separate issue. But it's not going to break your toe off what you will do. How long are we going to go? daanish? Because

01:10:08--> 01:10:10

five more quick, do you send them?

01:10:11--> 01:10:12

Okay, let me

01:10:13--> 01:10:15

Okay, any questions from the

01:10:16--> 01:10:17

audience? Yes, good

01:10:26--> 01:10:45

it's always better to raise the hands when you can. So if you are doing Pilates and you just want to raise your hands, it's not the problem. It's always better the general rule is to raise your hands during dua, but you don't have to and you may simply make your DUA from your tongue without raising the hand strength while this is also allowed.

01:10:52--> 01:11:08

Inshallah when we talk about the logistics but there's no rituals in Medina other than extra prayer, but inshallah when we talk about what we're going to be doing, we will go over some other things to be done in Medina Inshallah, dad, there was a hand over here from the brothers as well. There Yes, go ahead.

01:11:12--> 01:11:13

The selfie in the background

01:11:17--> 01:11:20

you had to ask didn't you write you knew you will be asking.

01:11:22--> 01:11:26

Can you take a selfie of the Kava. Stan?

01:11:27--> 01:11:30

Well, he there was a big controversy right online.

01:11:34--> 01:11:37

What can I say? It's not haram, if you want to do it, and you feel that this is

01:11:39--> 01:11:43

something you'd like to do with technically it's not haram. It's something that

01:11:44--> 01:11:56

what can I say? I don't feel comfortable doing it myself. And I feel very odd, but this is my personal personality. If that makes sense. It's my personality. I don't think it's something but

01:11:57--> 01:12:30

Allah here, it really depends on why you're doing it. And what is your intention? I mean, for some people, for some people doing that would be a type of encouragement to their friends that are not that practicing that man, I want to be there too. If that says Nia, that he wants to make them feel calm as well, then inshallah it's hella, you know, and for the one who wants to show up, there's no doubt that this would be haram and you're going to show off in front of the camera is like those years like really messed up priorities, man Hamdulillah? Yes, go ahead.

01:12:39--> 01:13:07

During the air travel, you will guesstimate so you figure out what time am I getting on the plane? What time will it be when I land? And then you guesstimate looking outside of the window? Roughly speaking, what time would it be and it is not that difficult. I mean, you look at and see where the sun is, you're never cloudy is that you're above the clouds. So you just look outside and you make a judgment call. And if you board the plane after maghrib and some of our flights are boarding after Mother's Day, then you pray Maghrib and Isha in the airport.

01:13:08--> 01:13:20

Right? So you're scot free there. If you board before Maghrib then you pray Maghrib and Isha. Within an hour or two after sunset, you pray both and then you pray Fudger before you land because by the time you get there, it will be

01:13:21--> 01:13:24

most likely depending on which flight you're taking, actually.

01:13:27--> 01:13:35

Oh, okay, so then in that case, we will have to we'll probably go ahead and answer at the airport. Margarita. Benicia and even fajr What time are we landing?

01:13:36--> 01:13:37


01:13:39--> 01:13:44

Yeah, so even Fajr will have to pray so we'll pray Maghrib and Isha and Fraser on the plane. Okay, well

01:13:45--> 01:13:48

yeah, there's an APA what is it called? Again, we can talk

01:13:49--> 01:13:57

S O A R ing soaring, there's an app that will tell you the timing of the timing of the salah and the plane.

01:13:58--> 01:14:01

Know where you are, it will tell you will tell you the time he goes

01:14:02--> 01:14:42

yeah, the current time of where you are in the plant you will find out we have a question from online. Should we pray too soon after doing whatever we did this tarnish number one we did that. Number two, if doing multiple cameras, can the rituals of aerobic O'Meara be performed at any hour of the day? Provided you get to the meal court and structures deliver haram? Yes. Romola can be done at any time of the day or night. There is no restriction on that. Do we pray the prayer of them wasafi while in Makkah and Medina or should we pray all of our sunnah. So you are a Mustafa. There's no doubt about that. But you should not be lazy and praying extra no awful. So even if you don't

01:14:42--> 01:15:00

pray so not Atiba. You should pray double, triple that interfere. Okay, so you are a musafir but you are going to be praying extra NFL because how can you give up 100,000 reward think about that. How can you give that up? You shouldn't be praying every opportunity you get just pray to regard as 100,000 On the day of Judge

01:15:00--> 01:15:02

With and 1000 in Medina.

01:15:04--> 01:15:05


01:15:06--> 01:15:11

we have a long question the Saudi authorities tell my wife not to pray close to the Kaaba to say segregated.

01:15:12--> 01:15:52

The Saudi security would take my wife and tell her to go away. When she was praying next to me, is there a religious justification that women shouldn't pray on the first level nearer to the cab. So we don't have the, you know, security rulings in our control, we can only do what they tell us what to do. So if there is a and this is only typically at peak timings, when it's empty, then the security also gets lacks and their main reason is logistics that it just becomes awkward with so many women are praying in one area and the men are doing so off their main reasons Logistics is not a defense of them, they have the rules of doing it. So if the security guards tell you to go

01:15:52--> 01:16:32

elsewhere, then I'll ask you go elsewhere and Allah knows you tried to pray behind the Mohammed Ibrahim, can we donate Quran to be placed in the home? No, do not donate organs to be placed in the home. There is a factory specially made for this purpose that we are going to visit. So no, we don't need to donate organs for the Haram because they have plenty of morons rather insha Allah for the men amongst us you will be donated a copy of the Quran inshallah Why do I say this because the women are not allowed to go to the factory, the medina factory it's not my my control the rules only men can go in. So inshallah we are still 100% confirming but inshallah the brothers will get to go to

01:16:32--> 01:16:38

the factory and you can get the Quran fresh from the printing press inshallah.

01:16:39--> 01:17:15

Yes, we need to do our final question then we are done that can women wear socks during a haram anytime? Yes, not even can they should wear socks, it is preferable for them to wear socks. Anytime, yes, they should wear socks inside inside the State of Iran. Inshallah, with that, Zach malaco Let's make a special dua to Allah that our Amara is accepted that our Amara goes with ease and comfort that Allah Subhana Allah does not test us and make us suffer a means of explanation cafardo for our sins, that Allah azza wa jal removes from us, the *er and the sins that we have, that we come back from this ombre as clean and as pure as our the day that our mothers gave birth to us that this

01:17:15--> 01:17:37

is just one of many other rumors that we continue to do until we meet our Lord and that Allah azza wa jal accepts our Onra and our tawaf and our sorry, and our salah, and our zikr and our do ask that we make that Allah azza wa jal accepts all of them and gives us better than what we asked for me and from mean Insha Allah we will continue later on the shortlist
