Ep 10 - 5 Deeds That Equal the Reward of Hajj | His Hajj Story
While we yearn and pray for the day Allah invites us to experience the last pillar (whether or not it is our first visit), we can find solace in a few gifts the Prophet (s) left us: messages that confirm that even when we are far from his land and the land of Ibrahim (a), we can still earn the reward of a fully accepted Hajj through the ordinary deeds that are in extraordinary standing with the Most High.
Ep. 9 - Amongst the People | His Hajj Story
A major theme of the Prophet’s directions on how to perform Hajj was flexibility. He knew that, just as Allah never places a burden upon anyone beyond what they can handle, Hajj was also meant to be something every individual could handle. He reminded his Companions to be flexible and to remember that honoring each other was even more important than the holy pilgrimage itself.
Ep. 8 - The Day of Arafah | His Hajj Story
On the most blessed day of all in the Sight of Allah, the Prophet (s) did two things: speak to the people and speak to Allah. And on that fateful day, as the Ummah was spread out across Arafah, he delivered his final sermon: the unparalleled, most comprehensive message to the world that marked the moment Islam was perfected and completed.
Ep. 7 - The Farewell Hajj | His Hajj Story
The journey of the Prophet ﷺ began with rejection, as he stood atop a hill in Makkah to declare a message that few accepted. But many years later came a moment of redemption, when a crowd of 144,000 believers joined him in his farewell Hajj. The example he set in his final pilgrimage is one we still follow today.
Ep. 6 - Under The Leadership Of Abu Bakr (ra) | His Hajj Story
After the Battle of Hunayn in the 8th year after Hijrah, the Prophet (s) performed his third Umrah. But it was the eventful 9th year that saw both the abolishment of the rituals from the days of ignorance and the first ameer of Hajj in Islam who set the stage for the Prophet’s (s) farewell pilgrimage to come in the next year.
Ep. 4 - The Day Of The Conquest | His Hajj Story
After the Treaty of Hudaybiyah was broken by the Quraysh, the Prophet ﷺ and the Muslims embarked on the long-awaited journey back to their homeland of Makkah. In a day of reconciliation and mercy that was an example of the faith they were persecuted over, he ﷺ liberated the Ka’bah from idolatry and solidified the triumph of truth.
