Before Starting Journey to the Blessed Pilgrimage – Hajj

Before Starting Journey to the Blessed Pilgrimage – Hajj

Before leaving for the journey for Hajj, make your conscience feel that you are going for Hajj because Allah the Almighty is pleased with you and has paved the way for you to perform Gusl and wear the Ahram clothes. Perform Wudu and offer these Nafl Namaaz:

  1. 2 raka’at Shukrana Nafl.
  2. 2 raka’at Nafl-e-Tauba.
  3. 2 raka’at Nafl-e-Haajaat.
  4. 2 raka’at Nafl-e-Safar,
  5. 2 raka’at Nafl with the intention of Umrah Ahram.

Give alms (sadaqa) and request your neighbors, friends and relatives to excuse you for your shortcomings and misbehavior towards them.

ON BOARD THE SHIP OR PLANE

When the ship or plane is about to leave, recite the following du’aa:

BIS-MIL-LAA-HI MAJ-REE-HAA WA MUR-SA-HAA IN-NA RAB-BEE LA GA-FOO-RUR-RA-HEEM

In the name of Allah be its course on carriage or landing. Verily my Lord is forgiving and merciful.

During the journey keep reciting Al-laa-hu Ak-bar or the following du’aa:

SUB-HAA-NAL-LA-ZEE SAKH-KHARA LA-NAA HAA-ZAA WA MAA KUN-NAA LA-HOO MUQ-RI-NEE-NA WA IN-NAA I-LAA RAB-BI-NAA LA-MUN-QA-LI-BOON

Now do the Niyyat that O Allah I am entering Ahram. This is formulated by pronouncing Talbiyah, i.e. Lab-baik Al-laa-hum-ma Lab-baik, 3 times loudly. Women should pronounce this softly. Once you enter Ahram, it becomes imperative for a person to complete his Umrah of Hajj for which he had done Niyyat.

Once you enter ahram you also have to follow the restrictions of Ahram.

RESTRICTIONS OF AHRAM

  1. Do not apply perfume, do not eat or drink anything with strong smell.
  2. Do not cut nails or uproot hair.

O Allah This sanctuary is Thy sanctuary. And that of Thy Prophet. Forbid my flesh, bones and blood to the fire of Hell. O my Lord Allah, I beseech Thee to secure me from Thy torment. On the day Resurrect Thy slaves Thou Verily Thou art Allah and there is no god save Thee.

The Most Benevolent and Merciful. After entering Makkah Mukarrama and leaving your luggage at the place of your stay, perform Gusl if possible or even Wudu will suffice, and then proceed to Haram Sharif. Enter the Haram Sharif with your right foot first through Baabus-Salaam (and keep your eyes lowered and do not raise them till you are right in front of the Ka’aba) and recite this du’aa:

BIS-MIL-LAA-HI WAL-HAM-DU-LIL-LAA-HI WAS-SA-LAA-TU WAS SA-LAA-MU A-LAA RA-SOO-LIL-LAA-HI SAL-LAL-LAA-HU A-LAI-HI WA SAL-LAM

In the name of Allah, Praise be to Allah and Blessings and Peace on the Messenger of Allah, on whom be Peace and Blessings.

AL-LAA-HUM-MAT-TAH-LEE AB-WAA-BA RAH-MA-TI-KA WA MAG-FI RA-TI-KA WAD-KHIL-NEE FEE-HAA

O Allah open upon me the door of Thy Mercy and Forgiveness and grant me to enter in this Haram.

BIS-MIL-LAA-HI DA-KHAL-TU WA A-LAI-HI TA-WAK-KAL-TU WA NA-WAI-TU SUN-NA-TALI’-TI-KAAF

In the name of Allah I am entering (Thy House) and with faith’ on Thee and with intention of Sunnatul I’tikaaf (attending in Thy House, paths shown by Allah’s Messenger – Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam).

The first glance of the Ka’aba is very important because it is the time for the acceptance of prayers. Therefore, be particular, to beseech Allah at this time for the betterment of yourself, your family members, your relatives, your friends, your acquaintances, in this world as well as the Hereafter, and recite this dua’aa particularly:

AL-LAA-HU AK-BAR ——AL-LAA-HU AK-BAR ——AL-LAA-HU AK-BAR ——LAA-I-LAA-HA  IL-LAL-LAA-HU  WAL-LAA-HU AK-BAR

Allah is Most Great, Allah is Most Great, Allah is Most Great. There is no god but Allah. Allah is Most Great.

This is the time for the acceptance of prayer.

Hajj – Intention of the Pilgrimage

Hajj – Intention of the Pilgrimage

The ibaadah of Hajj has the exclusive status of being obligatory only once a life time, for those who can afford it. It is therefore important that the sincerity of intention must be given due regard. In other ibaadaat and devotions it is possible to gradually develop devotion, whereas the time available for Hajj is usually limited. The need for devotion is vital because a Fardh Hajj can never be repeated. During your journey to Hajj a concerted effort towards developing this all-important sincerity must be made.

The person who intends to perform hajj must do so with the express intention of attaining Allah’s pleasure, and to fulfill one’s fardh, and also to diligently carry out the commands of Allah and His Messenger (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). The rewards for deeds depend greatly on the intention that is formed. Sincerity is extremely important.

It is important that Hajj should be kept free of ulterior and worldly motives. There are three types of adulterations, which are possible in the performance of Hajj:

To ruin the Hajj even before departing from home by having a desire to be called a Haajee, and using haraam or doubtful earnings for this ibaadah.

To engage in improper acts while performing Hajj, such as committing sins during the time that one is engaged in the performance of Hajj, to have arguments, not to make Taubah (repentance).

To complete the Hajj and then to indulge in such deeds that defile the Hajj, e.g. to neglect the obligatory salaat, to indulge in sin etc.

Perform the Hajj with all its requisites, for anything done in keeping with this is well accomplished. While in Hajj do not do things to display to others.

On returning from Hajj do not emphasize the difficulties which may have been endured, instead turn your attention towards the eternal benefits and rewards you will receive. One must understand that the difficulties endured during this sacred journey are insignificant compared to the high position one will receive in Paradise.

When departing from home, the only intention in the heart should be the search for Allah’s Pleasure. All other evil intentions, as for example to show people or to wish to be called a Haji or the intention of having an enjoyable tour, should be completely removed from the mind.

Many followers of Wahabism/Deobandism repented and came back to Ahlus Sunnah after observing the FRESHNESS of the Janazah of the Son of The Lion of Ahlus Sunnah Hazrat Hashmat Ali Khan (Khalifa of Ala Hazrat), named Hazrat Ahmad Mash’hood Raza Khan (Alaihimur Rahmah) when it was shifted after a year due to emerge of water near His Grave.

O the innocent followers of the deviant sects,
You too get back to your ORIGIN before its too late.

[Baqarah 2:154] And do not utter regarding those who are slain in Allah’s cause as “dead”; in fact they are alive, but it is you who are unaware.

[A/I`mran 3:169] And do not ever assume that those who are slain in Allah’s cause, are dead; in fact they are alive with their Lord, receiving sustenance.

(Death does not mean extinction, it is the passing of the soul from this world to another. In case of virtuous believers, their bodies do not rot after death and they remain “alive”, in the manner Allah has ordained for them.)

The Journey of Prophet Sallalaahu Alaihi Wasllam

[Bani Israel 17:1] Purity is to Him Who took His bondman in a part of the night from the Sacred Mosque to the Aqsa Mosque around which We have placed blessings, in order that We may show him Our great signs; indeed he is the listener, the beholder. (This verse refers to the physical journey of Prophet Mohammed – peace and blessings be upon him – to Al Aqsa Mosque and from there to the heavens and beyond. The entire journey back to Mecca was completed within a small part of the night.)

Did you know?

When He Sallalaahu Alaihi Wasallam was fifty-one years and nine months, He Sallalaahu Alaihi Wasallam went on the Night Journey commencing from the place between Zamzam and the Maqām, to Jerusalem. The Burāq was brought [again] and he Sallalaahu Alaihi Wasallam mounted it and was raised to the heavens; prayer was made obligatory during this journey.

THE THIRD DAY OF HAJJ 10th Zil Hajj

THE THIRD DAY OF HAJJ 10th Zil Hajj

“Bismil Laa-hir.Rahmaa-nir-Raheem””Al-Hamdu Lillaahi Rabbil ‘Aalameen was Salaatu was- Salaamu ‘Alaa Sayidinaa Muhammadin wa Aalihi wa Asabihi Ajma ‘een (tauheed- risalat- ahkirat and islam-iman-ihsan)

THE THIRD DAY OF HAJJ (10th Zil Hajj) Return in Mina After gathering pebbles in Muzdalifah and after offering Fajr prayer before sunrise return to Mina and do following after being there:

FIRST TASK Hit Seven Pebbles To Jumra Kabira (Biggest Satan).. On the locations where satan made a failure attempts to misdirect Hazrat Ibrahim Khalil ul Allah (Friend of Allah), on those places three pillars have been constructed for identification. These are called satan in public language. Take seven pebbles out of those pebbles which you have brought from Muzdalifah to hit the biggest satan. As a precautionary measure take additional one or two pebbles in case of a pebble is missed to hit satan, so in the place of it you can hit another one. Do not pick up a pebble from ground as it is accursed (mardood). Leave first two Jumrat and come in front of the largest Jumra. Stand at the distance of 3-4 feet and hit pebble one by one. Hold the pebble with the thumb and forefinger (shahadat ki ungli) and after reading the following takbeer hit the pebble: bismillahi llahu akbar wa lillahil hamd

Hit every pebble in the root of pillar in such a way that pebble fell in a cistern which is made around the pillar. If you will throw a pebble directly on pillar it will fall far from pillar and another pebble is required to be thrown in place of it. Do not say anything absurd while throwing the pebbles.

REMEMBER — It is wajib(must do) on every pilgrim to hit pebbles himself. If any pilgrim assigns another pilgrim to hit pebbles in his place then his wajib(must do) will remain, for the compensation of which a dam(sacrificing an goat or a sheep within the boundaries of Makkah) is

required. Extremely weak and feeble people can hit pebbles in the night after dawn. Only extremely disabled, blind, people bereaved from legs and hands can assign others to hit pebbles in their place.

SECOND TASK To Sacrifice.. For the pilgrims of Hajj Qiran and Hajj Tamattu, it is the responsibility to perform second task of hajj that is to sacrifice. This sacrifice of hajj is called “Dum Shukar.” You have to sacrifice with the same intention. However, pilgrims who perform hajj Ifraad are not responsible to sacrifice but it is mustahib for them which mean if they can afford then sacrifice.

THIRD TASK To Shave or Clip The Hair.. After hitting pebbles to the biggest satan and sacrificing the third task is to shave or clip the hair of head on 10th zil hajj. After this all the restrictions are finished which were imposed while you wore ehram. However, husband wife cannot get involve in physical relationship unless they do “Tawaf-e-Zayarat”.

FOURTH TASK Performing Tawaf e Ziyarat.. The fourth work on 10th zil hajj is to perform “Tawaf-e-Ziyarat”. This Tawaf-e-Ziyarat is a very important rukn (ritual) of Hajj. For this tawaf you are required to come to Makkah Mukarama in your routine dress after hitting pebbles to Jumra Kabira, sacrificing, and shaving or clipping the hair of your head. The most preferred time for Tawaf-e-Ziyarat is 10th zil hajj but if someone could not perform this tawaf-e-ziyarat on 10th zil hajj then he must do it before sunset of 12th zil hajj. If 12th zil hajj passed and tawaf-e-ziyarat was not performed then due to delay to give “dum” (sacrificing animal within the boundaries of Makkah) will remain wajib (must-do) and tawaf will remain an obligation.

TAWAF E ZIYARAT is neither elapsed in any case nor can it be compensated. Its performance remains an obligation till the end of life. Unless tawaf-e-ziyarat is performed restrictions regardinghusband and wife remain imposed. All the restrictions which were haram during ehram are halal now.

Sayee after Tawaf-e-Ziyarat.. Since, before Waqoof-e-Arafat you performed the Sayee of Umrah and not of Hajj, so after Tawaf-e-Ziayarat Sayee of Safa Marwa is wajib (must-do) on you. This sayee will be performed without ehram in your daily cloths and you will not cut hair after this as you have already cut hair after sacrifice and ehram ends before this. After getting free, you go to Mina again. It is sunnat to stay in Mina after Tawaf-e-Ziyarat and one should not unnecessarily stay in Makkah. However, if the time of prayer is near then after offering prayer in Masjid Haram return to Mina as soon as possible. The time of stay in Mina is of the remembrance of Allah, prayers of forgiveness to Allah, reading Darood sharif excessively and this time should not be spent heedlessly.

When I want to talk to allah I say prayers and when I want that he talk to me I recite quran- Hazrath Ali(ra)

The Second Day of Hajj 9th Zil Hajj Yaum-e-Arfa

The Second Day of Hajj 9th Zil Hajj Yaum-e-Arfa

“Bismil Laa-hir.Rahmaa-nir-Raheem””Al-Hamdu Lillaahi Rabbil ‘Aalameen was Salaatu was- Salaamu ‘Alaa Sayidinaa Muhammadin wa Aalihi wa Asabihi Ajma ‘een (tauheed- risalat- ahkirat and islam-iman-ihsan)

The Second Day of Hajj (9th Zil Hajj) Yaum-e-Arfa On 9th zil hajj, after dawn you have to move towards “Arafat.” It is allowed to move towards Arafat in night because of crowd. It will be afternoon to reach Arafat. The time of Waqoof-e-Arafat (to stop in Arafat) starts after sunset. Remember to gather in the ground of Arafat on 9th zil hajj is the most important rukn (ritual) of Hajj. If a pilgrim performed each and every rukn of hajj but did not stop in Arafat after sunset on 9th zil hajj till sunrise on 10th zil hajj in Arafat, his hajj will not be done. That is why; each and every moment of this rukn (ritual) of hajj should be spent with great preparation. While going to Arafat from Mina and while staying in Arafat, read talbiyah, darood shareef, and fourth Kalima, which Holy Prophet Muhammad S.A.W read as well as recommended to read, as much as possible. As soon as you see “Jabl-e-Rehamt” after reaching Arafat, read the following tasbeeh o tahleel o takbeer: subhanallahi wal hamdulilahi wala ilaha illallahu wallahuakbar. And pray whatever you want. Jabl-e-rehmat is the mountain on which Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) addressed the Khutba Hijjat ul Wida. If easily possible then take bath with the intention of Waqoof-e-Arfa after sunset in Arafat ground but if there is no such opportunity then do ablution.

Then in Masjid Namra which is in Arafat ground, the Imam on 9th zil hajj will pray for Dhuhr and Asr together at the time of Dhuhr because today it is the command of Allah to offer two prayers together. Firstly, imam will offer fard of Dhuhr and immediately after it will offer fard of Asr. Those pilgrims who are offering prayer behind the imam will offer these two prayers together. But because of intense crowd, it is difficult to reach Masjid Namra and then to return back to camp. So, those pilgrims who are offering prayers alone or offering separately in a group are required to offer Dhuhr at the time of Dhuhr and Asr at the time of Asr. As the time of waqoof-e-arafat is very precious, so, after offering Dhuhr prayer, stand in the direction of Qibla and pray for forgiveness to Allah, praise Allah (hamd o sana), pray to Allah, read darood shareef, and read talbiyah. This act should be continued. After Asr prayer till the time of sunset pray in the court of Allah in an extreme humble manner for you and your parents, relatives and friends, and the whole Muslim nation because it is the special time of acceptance of prayers. If you cannot stand for long then you can sit and pray. Those who are weak and ill can pray while sitting.

 

Departure To Muzdalifah From Arafat.. Without offering Maghrib prayer move to Muzdalifah from Arafat when sun sets. It takes a long time to reach Muzdalifah. Any time you reach Muzdalifah, the first work you have to do is to offer prayer of Maghrib and Isha’a together at the time of Isha’a in Muzdalifah. Either offer it alone or offer in a group or in the guidance of ameer-ul hajj. The method is that; whichever place you stay in Muzdalifah, call to prayer first, then say Takbeer, and then after offering fard of Maghrib and Isha’a, first offer sunnat of Maghrib, then sunnat of Isha’a, and finally witr. For these two prayers say one call of prayer and one takbeer. This night you have to spend in Muzdalifah under open sky. This night is very beatific. There remains raining of Allah’s light throughout the night.So, it is better to rest for a while after offering Maghrib and Isha’a and then get busy in adoration of Allah. Since it is the night of acceptance of prayers so the whole night pray to Allah for forgiveness, blessings, and benevolence for you, your family, parents, relatives and friends, and for blessing and good of the whole Muslim nation. There is one more important work to do in Muzdalifah. This is to gather seventy pebbles from Muzdalifah. These pebbles should be equivalent in size to bean or to the seed of date. These should not be so big in size. These will be of use to hit Jumrat in Mina for three days. After offering Fajr and praying to Allah in Muzdalifah depart for Mina before sunrise having pebbles with you.
