Hajj for the Tarbiyah Class Lifeline


Published on

This presentation was used to explain to the students at Lifeline the reason behind our celebration of Eid-ul-Adha.

We feel the best way to connect children to Allah SWT is to quote to them the Qur'anic text. As they are doing Hifz they will realize that key to our deen is based on the Qur'an.

Parents can download and share this with them. In fact ask them to explain the presentation to you!
May Allah SWT accept from all of us. Aameen.

  5. 5. Ibrahim Ibrahim is given title of “Khaleelullah” – A friend of Allah. In the Qur‟an Allah says: “And who is better in religion than one who submits himself to Allah while being a doer of good and follows the religion of Ibrahim, inclining toward truth? And Allah took Ibrahim as an intimate friend.” (An-Nissa (The Women): 125)
  6. 6. Why did Allah friend? choose him as a • Ibrahim „s repeatedly tested by Allah at different times and he passed every test with flying colors. He accepted all commands and sacrificed for Allah . And so as a result of passing all these tests, Allah rewards him by making him a leader of the people as stated in the ayah.
  7. 7. Ibrahim is made a Leader “And [mention, O Muhammad], when Ibrahim was tried by his Lord with commands and he fulfilled them. [ Allah ] said, "Indeed, I will make you a leader for the people." ” [Surah Al-Baqarah (The Cow): 124]
  8. 8. Story of Bibi Hajrah • Ibrahim was blessed with a son, Ismail . • Ismail as just a baby when Allah commanded Ibrahim to take his wife and son to the desert of Arabia (which is Makkah now), and leave them there. • He left a jug of water with them. There wasn‟t any other person around.
  9. 9. Story of Bibi Hajrah • Bibi Hajrah asked her husband where he was going and why he was leaving them behind in that place. He did not answer as he was told to not answer. • Then Bibi Hajrah asked Ibrahim , “Did Allah command you to do this?” He replied, “Yes.” She did not question him any more and said if Allah has commanded He will take care of us.
  10. 10. • She stayed there with Ismail . The jug of water finished. The baby started crying until finally she set out looking for water. She saw the mountains of Safaa and Marwa and went there to see if she could find water. • She did this 7 times. This is known as Sae‟ee. Every time she reached one mountain she would climb up to see Ismail .She saw nothing, no water and no human.
  11. 11. Ibrahim made a du‟a as he left Makkah. “Our Lord, I have settled some of my descendants in an uncultivated valley near Your sacred House, our Lord, that they may establish prayer. So make hearts among the people incline toward them and provide for them from the fruits that they might be grateful.” (Surah Ibrahim :37)
  12. 12. Du’a during Sa’ee “Indeed, as-Safa and al-Marwah are among the symbols of Allah . So whoever makes Hajj to the House or performs 'umrah - there is no blame upon him for walking between them. And whoever volunteers good - then indeed, Allah is appreciative and Knowing.” (Surah Al-Baqarah (The Cow): 158)
  13. 13. • Allah is indeed Merciful. When Bibi Hajrah returned to Ismail , she found a spring of water gushing beneath the feet of her son. Allah had ordered it to gush. The words that came out of her mouth were, “Zam Zam.” (Stop, Stop). • The spring came to be known as the well of Zam Zam. • A tribe passing by asked to share and settled there.
  14. 14. Ibrahim built. comes back. Kaaba is •Allah had now ordered him to build His house and directed them to the site where the construction would be done. • Both Ibrahim and Ismail (Alaihummussalaam) began building the Kaaba.
  15. 15. Du’a of the two Prophets while they built the Kaaba “And [mention] when Ibrahim was raising the foundations of the House and [with him] Ismail, [saying], "Our Lord, accept [this] from us. Indeed You are the Hearing, the Knowing.” Surah Al-Baqarah (The Cow):127
  16. 16. Another Du’a Of Ibrahim “And [mention] when Ibrahim said, "My Lord, make this a secure city and provide its people with fruits - whoever of them believes in Allah and the Last Day." [ Allah ] said. "And whoever disbelieves - I will grant him enjoyment for a little; then I will force him to the punishment of the Fire, and wretched is the destination.” (Surah Al-Baqarah (The Cow) :126)
  17. 17. Kaaba • Kaaba is also known as Haram • Another two names are Bait-ul-Ateeq and Baitul-Haram
  18. 18. Importance of Making Du’a • We learn the importance of making du‟a and especially when we do a good deed, we have to pray for its acceptance.
  19. 19. Maqam-e-Ibrahim While they were constructing the Kaaba, Ismail , would bring the stones to his father, who would place them in the right place. They had raised the walls of the Kaaba, Ismail got a stone on which Ibrahim , stood to raise the walls even more. This stone still has his footprints on it. Praying two Rakah Nafil Salah here after performing Tawaaf around Kaaba has great reward. Maqam-e-Ibrahim – means place where Ibrahim stood.
  20. 20. “And [mention] when We made the House a place of return for the people and [a place of] security. And take, [O believers], from the standing place of Abraham a place of prayer. And We charged Ibrahim and Ismail, [saying], "Purify My House for those who perform Tawaf and those who are staying [there] for worship and those who bow and prostrate [in prayer].“ Al-Baqarah (The Cow):125”
  21. 21. Hajr-e-Aswad – The Black Stone •It is stone of Jannah •The Hajr e Aswad was sparkling because of its pure whiteness, and it enlightened the north, south, east and west. People‟s sin have turned it black. •Tawaaf begins from here. •Rasul Allah would kiss and cry over this stone.
  22. 22. Allah commands call for Hajj • When the Kaaba is completed, Ibrahim is ordered to call people for Hajj. But there is no one there! • Ibrahim pleaded, "O Allah, how shall my voice reach all humankind?" Almighty Allah told him that his duty was only to make the call and that it was up to Allah to make it heard by people. Ibrahim then climbed Mount `Arafat and, as loud as he could, yelled, "O People, verily, Allah has prescribed Hajj for you, so perform it."
  23. 23. Allah says in the Qur’an: “And proclaim to the people the Hajj [pilgrimage]; they will come to you on foot and on every lean camel; they will come from every distant pass –” (Al-Hajj:27)
  24. 24.

  30. 30. “And when he reached with him [the age of] exertion, he said, "O my son, indeed I have seen in a dream that I [must] sacrifice you, so see what you think."

  32. 32. • Indeed, this was the clear trial. • And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice, • And We left for him [favorable mention] among later generations: (Surah As-Saffat (Those Who Set the Ranks): 106-108)
