Virtues of Hajj

Hajj is one of the five Pillars of Islam. It was made Fardh in the year 9th Hijri , after the revelation of the following verses of the majestic Quran:

“And performing the Hajj (pilgrimage) of this house, for the sake of Allah, is a duty upon mankind, for those who can reach it; and whoever disbelieves - then Allah is Independent (Unwanting) of the entire creation!” [Al-Quran 3:97]

Hajj, in a purely technical sense, refers to the visiting of particular places (like Arafah), at prescribed times (from 8th to 12th Dhul-Hijjah ) and performing of precise rituals (like Tawaf-e-Ziyarah) under specific conditions (such as Ihram).

The importance of Hajj is further highlighted by the following sayings of beloved Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh):

  • It is narrated by Hadhrat Ali (r.a.) that Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) said, “A person who has the provision for Hajj and has the conveyance that can take him to Baitullah (Holy Kaba) and even then he does not perform Hajj, it makes no difference whether he dies a Jew or a Christian” [Tirmidhi]
  • The Messenger of Allah (Pbuh) was asked about the best of deeds. He (the Prophet) said: Belief in Allah. He (the inquirer) said: What next? He (the Prophet) replied: Jihad (struggle to the utmost) in the cause of Allah. He (the inquirer) again said: What next? He (the Prophet) replied: Hajj Mabroor (an accepted pilgrimage) [Bukhari].
