Conditions of The blessed Pilgrimage –  Hajj

Pilgrimage – Hajj

  1. One must be a Muslim.
  2. One must be an adult.
  3. One must be sane.
  4. A woman must travel with her husband or a Mahram (a man she cannot marry at all).
  5. The pilgrim should have sufficient money for his journey as well as for his dependants whom he leaves at home.Hajj is only for Allah Ta’alaVerser: “And for the sake of Allah, the people are to perform pilgrimage to this house, who could find a way there.” (Surah Aal E Imran, Verse 97)

Hajj is obligatory upon those who can “make their way” to Makkah. That is to say that the requirement is not absolute, but incumbent upon those whose health and means permit it, and who in doing so, do not compromise their responsibilities towards their families. Hajj relates to the life of tests and trials lived by Prophet Hazrat Ibrahim (Alahissalam) and his son Prophet Hazrat Ismail (Alaihissalam) in the vicinity of Makkah.

 

Hajj – The one of the five pillars of Islam.

Hajj – The one of the five pillars of Islam.

Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam. The yearly flood of pilgrims from the remotes places of Islam has been a remarkable means of spiritual renewal for distant communities, which are thus brought closer to the manifest centre of Islam. Historically, the pilgrimage has been a means of knitting together the many races and nations that make the Muslim community, and there is no other event on earth that can compare with it.

Hajj is only for Allah Ta’ala

Verse: “And for the sake of Allah, the people are to perform pilgrimage to this house, who could find a way there.” (Surah Aal E Imran, Verse 97)

There are three ways of Performing the Hajj

Hajj at-Tamatt’u (Interrupted) this means entering into ahram for the Umrah, taking off after performing the Umrah, and then entering into Ahram again for the Hajj. People who come from other countries usually perform Hajj at-Tamatt’u.

Hajj al Qiran (Combined) this means entering into Ahram for both the Umrah and the Hajj at the same time, not taking off the Ahram until the day of sacrifice at Mina.

Hajj al-Ifrad (Single) this means entering into Ahram only for the Hajj.

My Beloved Prophet sallal laahu alaihi wasallam’s beloved devotees! We know that Hajj is compulsory on all those that are able to perform it, if they have the means. Those that can afford to perform pilgrimage should focus on the beginning of the ayah. Hajj is only “for the sake of Allah” and for His pleasure. It is not for fame, for a name or title, there should only be one yearning, and that is “O Allah, I am performing this only for you.” You will see the blessings of this in both worlds Insha Allah. May Allah Ta’ala grant us all Hajj for His Pleasure. Aameen

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.

 

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 Blessings of the Ten Days of Dhul Hijjah

The Blessings of the Ten Days of Dhul Hijjah
-الصــلوة والسلام‎ عليك‎ ‎يارسول‎ الله ﷺ

On the authority of Hadrat Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (Radi Allahu Anhu), the Messenger of Allah (SallAllahu Alayhi waSallam) said: “There are no days more beloved to Allah that He be worshiped in them than the ten days of Dhul Hijjah. Each day of fasting in it is equivalent to the fast of an entire year. And each night standing in prayer is equivalent to standing in prayer on the Night of Power (Laylat al-Qadr).” [Jaami’ al-Tirmidhi, Vol. 3, Hadith 758]

Also due to the stature and merits of these days, Allah swore by them when He said:
“By oath of the (particular) dawn. And by oath of ten nights. [al-Fajr: 1-2],”

and in them, He bestowed many of His bounties on His Prophets. Hadrat Sayyiduna Ibn Abbas (Radi Allahu Anhu) relates that in the ten days of Dhul Hijjah, Allah accepted the repentance of Prophet Adam (Ala Nabiyyina wa Alayhis Salam), and in it Prophet Ibrahim (Ala Nabiyyina wa Alayhis Salam) became the intimate friend (khalil) of Allah
“…And Allah made Ibrahim His close friend. [al-Nisa: 125].”

Hence, he submitted his wealth to the two noble guests (i.e. the angels sent to the people of Lut [Hud: 69-79]), his soul to the flames, his son to sacrifice, and his heart to the Most-Merciful One (al-Rahman). In it the Prophet Musa (Ala Nabiyyina wa Alayhis Salam) was also honored with the following call, “Said Allah,
“O Moosa! I have chosen you from mankind by (bestowing) My messages and by My speech; so accept what I have bestowed upon you and be among the thankful.” [al-A’raaf: 144],” and Prophet Dawud (Ala Nabiyyina wa Alayhis Salam) was granted forgiveness, “We therefore forgave him this; and indeed for him in Our presence are, surely, proximity and an excellent abode. [Saad: 25].”

Hadith on Hajj Generous Reward for Ethical Pilgrim

Generous Reward for Ethical Pilgrim:

Generous Reward for Ethical Pilgrim: Hadrat Abu Huraira Radiallhu Anhu  narrated That He heard Prophet Sallal Laahu Alahi Wasallam Said:

“Whoever performs Hajj and does not commit any obscenity or trangression shall return [free from sins] as he was on the day his mother gave birth to him.” – Al- Bukhari

The Excellence of Intention

The Excellence of Intention:
Umar bin al-Khattab Radiallahu anhu said: “The best acts are doing what Allah has commanded, staying for away from what Allah has forbidden, and having sincere intention towards what-ever Allah has required of us.” (Tahdhib ul-Asma)

Some of our predecessors said: “Many small actions are made great by the intentions behind them. Many great actions, on the other hand, are made small because the intentions behind them are lacking.”

Yahya bin Abi Kathir said: “Learn about intentions, for their importance is greater than the importance of actions.”

Ibn ‘Umar once heard a man who was putting on his ihran say: “Allah! I intend to do Hajj and ‘Ummrah.” So he said to him: “is it not in fact the people whom you are informing of your intention? Does not Allah already know what is in your hear?” (Jami’ul-‘Ulum)

It is because good intentions are exclusively the concern of the heart, that they should not be voiced during worship.

Allah ransoms more of His Slaves from the Fire

The Day of Arafah:

There is no day on which Allah ransoms more of His Slaves from the Fire than the day of ‘Arafah. He draws close then he boasts about them before the angles and says what do these people want?’ –  Sahih Muslim #1348
