Read Sultanق’s Sohbah here:
Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
“وَلِلَّهِ عَلَى النَّاسِ حِجُّ الْبَيْتِ مَنِ اسْتَطَاعَ إِلَيْهِ سَبِيلًا”, “Wa li-Llahi ‘ala n-Nasi Ĥijju Al-Bayti Mani Astaţā`a ‘Ilayhi Sabīlā”, “And [due] to Allah from the people is a pilgrimage to the House – for whoever is able to find thereto a way.” (Qur’an 03:97). We are in the days of Hajj. These holy days remind us about Hajj. The most blessed days are the first ten days and nights of Dhu l-Hijjah. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla has made them holy. They have a lot of virtue.
Wherever there are Muslims, as they go to Hajj from all over places, there is even more virtue. Because a prayer performed at Ka’bah is 100,000 times better than a prayer performed outside. It is same with charity done there. Everything is 100,000 times more. They are favors from Allah ﷻ. They are favors to Hajjis who come to the house of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla.
Hajj is the gift of Allah ﷻ to Muslims and believers. It is Fard to those who are able to go. Performing it brings a lot of virtue, because other worships cannot reach the virtue of Hajj. Even if you make Umrah all your life, you cannot attain Thawab of one Hajj. Hajj is different as it is Fard. Fard worship cannot be compared to Sunnah or Nafl worship. You cannot attain the virtue of one Fard prayer if you perform your prayer with the intention of Sunnah all your life without praying Fard.
Also, Shukr to Allah ﷻ, the religion of Islam is the true religion. Other people, non-Muslims go here and there to become Hajji. They are not Hajjis. So even this is enough for them to become Muslim, because Hajj is on the day appointed by Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla once a year. Its worship, Fard to be performed and places are known. If you stay in other places, your Hajj won’t be accepted. If you do other things, your Hajj won’t be accepted.
Others say, “I went to Rome and became a Hajji. I went here and became a Hajji. I went to Spain and became a Hajji”. They have made it up as they like and changed the religion according to their minds. The religion is one. The religion of Islam of Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla is the most perfect religion from all aspects. For people who have mind and who accept the truth, there is enough proof to follow this religion. And the matter of Hajj is one of the proofs. It is the biggest one.
It is not like other things. It is not like other religions that people have made up. The days, months, Fard and Sunnah for people that Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla put Barakah in and appreciated are done so in the most perfect way. And there is great virtue for those who follow them.
It is not considered easy. Hajj is difficult. Therefore, people who go to Hajj should not complain and say it was difficult for them. They may sometimes have a hard time. But the more they suffer, the more Thawab they attain. May Allah ﷻ bless it for Hajjis. May He ﷻ let those who haven’t been there to go. And may He ﷻ give from that virtue to those who are there in these holy days insha’Allah.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
Shukr to Allah ﷻ, our brothers have recited and sent from all over the world Qur’an Khatms, Yasin, Surahs, Ayat, Tasbihat, Tahlilat, Takbirat, Salawat. May Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla accept what they have recited especially for today in these holy days insha’Allah. We gift them firstly to the great soul of our Holy Prophet ﷺ, his Ahlu l-Bayt and Sahabah, to the souls of all Anbiya, Asfiya, Awliya and our Mashayikh, the souls of our late relatives, the souls of all Mu’mins and Mu’minahs, Muslims and Muslimah. For goodness to come and evil to be gone. Li-Llahi Ta’ala l-Fatiha.
