    يَوْمَ تَأْتِي كُلُّ نَفْسٍ تُجَادِلُ عَنْ نَفْسِهَا وَتُوَفَّىٰ كُلُّ نَفْسٍ مَا عَمِلَتْ وَهُمْ لَا يُظْلَمُونَ
    On the day when every soul will come pleading for itself, and every soul will be recompensed for what it had done, no one will be wronged.

    Hajj and Umrah

    Some people think that the performance of Hajj and Umrah is very complicated. Therefore, they don’t make enough effort to learn to perform the essential rites correctly and have to pay Dam (sacrifice of an animal) as a penalty. Then some people are put off by the lengthy Dua’as in Arabic listed in the most books. To put these people at ease from the very beginning, we start with the suggestion to use the simpleDua’as that they already know. Then the procedure of Hajj and Umrah is presented in a simplified way. Continue reading

    This time the crowds were tremendous…..more, much more than the previous years. One couldn’t help but be overwhelmed by the number of people at Hajj this year. And similarly, I couldn’t help but be overwhelmed by the sheer number of lessons that I learnt on this journey – lessons of patience, lessons of compassion, lessons of humility and lessons of thankfulness to Allaah Subhaanahu wa Ta‘ala.

    Every corner I turned, every where I went, every second I spent during my stay in Mina had the potential to mould me for better or for worse. Continue reading

    The prophet Muhammad (pbuh) told us that no other days have the value such as these days(the ten days of DulHajah)because they contain great and blessed works which are the basics of the Islamic religion as prayers ,fasting,Hajj and charity.Allah glorified and exalted be he has made a vow with these days in the holy Qura’n because of sanctity as Allah says:{ By the dawn. By the ten nights (i.e. the first ten days of the month of Dhul-Hijjah }Narrated Ibn ‘Abbâs رضي الله عنهما: The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, “No good deeds done on other days are superior to those done on these (first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah).” Then some Companions of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said, “Not even Jihâd ?” He replied, “Not even Jihâd, except that of a man who does it by putting himself and his property in danger (for Allâh’s sake) and does not return with any of those things.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol.2, Hadith No.86).  

    What to do in these ten days? Continue reading

    The Meeqaats

    8. The meeqaats (places for assuming iHraam) are five: Dhul Hulaifah, Al-Juhfah, Qarn-ul manaazil, Yalamlam and Dhaatu `Irq. They are for those who live there and those who pass by them intending Hajj or ‘Umrah. And he whose house is nearer than them to Makkah then he makes iHraam from his house, the people of Makkah making iHraam from Makkah. Continue reading

    Assuming Iharaam (IHraam is the state entered into at the Meeqat in which certain acts and types of clothing are forbidden).

    1. It is mustaHabb for anyone going for Hajj or ‘Umrah to take a ghusl (bath) for iHraam – even if a woman is in her period or in after-birth confinement.

    2. Then the men may wear whatever clothes he wishes that are not made in the shape of the body – and these clothes are called by the fuqahaa (religious scholars) “ghair al mukheet (unstitched)”. So he wears a ridaa (upper garment) and izaar (lower garment) or whatever, and sandals or any footwear that does not cover the ankle-bone. Continue reading

    Advice for those about to perform Hajj

    These are some pieces of advice and useful points which I offer to our brothers about to make Hajj.

    Firstly. The pilgrim must fear his lord by obedience to Him, and must be very careful not to fall into that which Allaah has forbidden as Allaah ta’la says:

    <<For Hajj are the months well-known. If anyone undertaken that duty therin, let there be no obscenity nor wrangling in the Hajj.>>[Surat-al-Baqarah ayah 197] Continue reading

    Let us examine closely the square-structured Ka’bah (The Holy House) at Makkah, in Arabia, wherein in its Eastern corner lies the Black Stone set up chest-high. Every pilgrim in Makkah tries to kiss and caress it fondly, the first thing upon arrival there. This action marks the start of the act of Tawaf. The word “Tawaf” is an arabic infinitive noun which means to circle, compass or move around something. A pilgrim has to circle the Ka’bah seven times, to complete Tawaf. Each one of the seven rounds begins by kissing or caressing if possible, or by simply pointing at the Black Stone. The Black Stone thus, serves to mark the start of each round. Tawaf is one of the integral parts of Pilgrimage (Hajj), which is also performed, as a separate act of worship at any time. Thus we find the Ka’bah continually being circled by people day and night. Continue reading

    There are three forms of Hajj: T a m a t t u ' - I f r a a d - Q i r a n
    T ama t t u ' : A pilgrim wears Ihram for Umrah only during the months of
    Hajj, which means when a pilgrim reaches Makkah, he/she makes Tawaf
    and Sa'yi for Umrah. Then shaves or clips the hair. On the day of
    Tarwiya, which is the eighth of Dhul-Hijja, a pilgrim puts on his Ihram for
    Hajj only and carries out all of its requirements.
    Ifraad: A pilgrim wears Ihram for Hajj only. When he reaches Makkah,
    he performs Tawaf for his arrival and Sa'yi for Hajj. He doesn't shave or
    clip- his hair as he doesn't disengage from Ihram. Instead, he remains in
    Ihram till after he stones Jamrah Al-Aqaba on the Eid day. It is permissible
    for him to postpone his Sa'yi for Hajj until after his Tawaf for Hajj.
    Qi ran: A pilgrim wears Ihram for both Umrah and Hajj or he wears
    Ihram first for Umrah, then makes intentions for Hajj before his Tawaf for
    Hajj. The obligations on one performing Ifraad are the same as those on
    one performing Qiran, except that the latter must slaughter whereas the
    former is not obligated to do so. The best of the three forms is Tamattu'. It
    is the form that the prophet-may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon
    him encouraged his followers to perform. Continue reading 

    Every Muslim must perform the Pilgrimage to Makka at least once in their lifetime if they have the ability (physical, financial, etc.) to do so.  Pilgrimage becomes obligatory when the ability first is obtained.  To delay the Pilgrimage at all past that point is a sin.

    When you make your intention to perform the pilgrimage to Makka, start with tauba (repentance), returning anything which is not rightfully yours, undoing any acts of oppression against others, pay off all of your debts, prepare all expenses for all those it is your obligation to support until your planned time of return and return any trusts to their rightful owners.  In other words, with the exception of the support of dependents, leave for Makka as if you are never going to return.

    The pilgrimage to Makkah (the hajj) is an obligation only for those who are physically and financially able to do so. Nevertheless, over two million people go to Makkah each year from every corner of the globe providing a unique opportunity for those of different nations to meet one another.

    The annual hajj begins in the twelfth month of the Islamic year (which is lunar, not solar, so that hajj and Ramada-n fall sometimes in summer, sometimes in winter). Pilgrims wear special clothes: simple garments that strip away distinctions of class and culture, so that all stand equal before God.

    The rites of the hajj, which are of Abrahamic origin, include going around the Ka’bah seven times, and going seven times between the hills of Safa and Marwa as did Hagar (Hajir, Abraham’s wife) during her search for water. The pilgrims later stand together on the wide plains of ‘Arafat (a large expanse of desert outside Makkah) and join in prayer for God’s  forgiveness, in what is often thought as a preview of the Day of Judgment.

    The close of the hajj is marked by a festival, the ‘Id al Adha, which is celebrated with prayers and the exchange of gifts in Muslim communities everywhere. This and the ‘Id al Fitr, a festive day celebrating the end of Ramada-n, are the two holidays of the Islamic calendar.  Source: Islam 101.
