Hajj 1438-2017: 
Some Quick,  Random and Maybe Disjointed Thoughts

Dr. Pasha

As Hajj approaches there is a whirl of thoughts and emotions in my mind. All I can think about is the Qur’an. For, there is nothing greater in this world. And, if you are able to connect with the Qur’an, it is a blessing that nothing can match.

When Allah returned Ismaeel, Alaihis salam, to Ibrahim, Alaihis salam, it was not without a reason. And it was not without getting an understanding from him. 

Hajj became, at least in part, the greatest celebration of that event in the world: how Allah took his son away from him and then gave him back to him, all in the same twinkling of an eye. 

A clear and firm commitment was called for: to devote himself entirely to build the Deen of Allah in this world.

That was then: 4000 or so years ago.

Today, that is also exactly the need of the hour. Islam, Muslims and the whole world need to be rebuilt.

That is done at several levels:

  1. Clarifying and promoting Allah’s Deen to Muslims, because Muslims right now are a fairly confused and uninformed people.
  2. Connecting Muslims with the Qur’an, for most Muslims are clueless when it comes to the Qur’an.
  3. Doing the same with non-Muslims, for most non-Muslims have no idea what Allah’s Deen is about.
  4. Educating the Muslims in every conceivable form of Ilm and knowledge about both the Deen and the Duniya.
  5. Training the Muslims in all the skills that are needed to succeed in this world and in the next world.
  6. Making sure the entire world of Allah and the entire Khalq of Allah reaches the highest point of success, tranquility, justice, goodness and peace in this world.

These are just some aspects of our mission on earth today, whether we live here for only one hour or for the next 100 years.

So, how do we get the Muslims everywhere to share this vision and to commit themselves to the achievement of this goal and to undertake this mission? 

And how do we set the same fire in the hearts of the non-Muslims everywhere?

In other words, how do we build a new and a better world for both Muslims and non-Muslims and for all the Khalq of Allah using the Hajj as our departure point?

That is what I am interested in doing and achieving. And that is what the message of Hajj is to me. And that is what Allah asked Ibrahim, Alaihis Salam, to do in exchange for his son.

Can all this be done? Of course, yes. That is Allah’s promise. Nothing less. 

Walladheena Jaahadoo Feenaa, Lanahdiyannahum Subulanaa is how the Qur’an delivers that promise to the world.

END
