Fard & Wajib Acts of Hajj

1.There are three acts that are fardh in Hajj.

If any Fardh is missed or omitted for any reason, Hajj will not be properly accomplished. Moreover, It is mandatory to perform every one of these Faraidh in the prescribed order at its appointed time and place. We will only emphasise on the mandatory acts of Fardh and Wajib in this section. The entire process of Hajj in an easy and progressive manner is dealt in a subsequent section.

  • Assume Ihram10 and make intention(Niyyah) for Hajj, recite Talbiyah11. The Intention should be done before leaving for Mina in the morning of 8thDhul-Hijjah.
    Note: It is permissible to leave for Mina the previous night i.e. evening of 7th Dhul-Hijjah.
  • Wuquf at Arafah, stay at Arafah even if it is for a moment, in the time between Zawal (Noon) of the 9th Dhul-Hijjah and the dawn of the 10th Dhul-Hijjah.
  • Tawaf Al-Ziyarah: It may be performed any time from the morning of the 10th Dhul-Hijjah till the sunset of the 12th Dhul-Hijjah after ritual shaving.

Very Important Note: Intention of Umrah and Hajj should be made separately.

2.Wajibaat of Hajj

There are six acts of Wajib in Hajj. If any Wajib is left out intentionally or inadvertently, it does not make the Hajj invalid, but Jaza (reparation for the mistake) will be due for the omission, in the form of Damm (Qurbani/animal sacrifice) or Sadaqah (giving food or corn as alms to the poor in a fixed quantity). Please keep in mind that omitting a Wajib without any excuse is a sin that cannot be absolved by Jaza unless the pilgrim repents and seeks forgiveness of Allah. Therefore, one should be determined not to leave any Wajib.

  • Wuqoof(Stay)at Muzdalifah
  • Sa’ee (Circumambulating the Ka’ba)
  • Rami (Pelting Stones) Jamarat.
  • Qurbani (Sacrifice of Animal)
  • Shave or Cut Hair (Halq or Qasr)
  • Tawaful Wida (Farewell Tawaf)
