Excellence of Hajj… 12

Excellence of Hajj (1):

Excellence of Hajj (1) 13 The Prophet ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) said: Umra is an expiation for the sins committed between it and the previous Umra ; and the reward of Hajj Mabrur (i.e., one accepted) is nothing but Jannah . [ Bukhari and Muslim] عن ‏ ‏أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه ‏أن رسول الله ‏صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: ‏‏ العمرة إلى العمرة كفارة لما بينهما والحج المبرور ليس له جزاء إلا الجنة . ( البخاري ومسلم ) Narrated Abu Huraira : The Prophet ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) said: Whoever performs hajj and does not commit any obscenity nor commit any evil, will return as sinless as a new-born child . [ Bukhari and Muslim] ‏عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال: سمعت النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول: من حجّ فلم يرفث ولم يفسق رجع كيوم ولدته أمه . ( لفظ البخاري ) ولفظ مسلم: من أتى هذا البيت فلم يرفث ولم يفسق رجع كيوم ولدته أمه.

Excellence of Hajj (2):

Excellence of Hajj (2) 14 The Prophet ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) was asked: Which deed is the best? He ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) replied: Faith in Allah and His Messenger . Then he was asked: What is next? He replied: Jihad (fighting) in the Cause of Allah . Then he was asked: What is after that? He replied: Hajj Mabrur . [ Bukhari and Muslim] عن ‏ ‏أبي هريرة ‏رضي الله عنه ‏ ‏قال:‏ ‏سئل النبي ‏ ‏صلى الله عليه وسلم : ‏أي الأعمال أفضل ؟ قال: ‏ ‏إيمان بالله ورسوله ، قيل : ثم ماذا ؟ قال : جهاد في سبيل الله ، قيل : ثم ماذا ؟ قال : حج ‏‏ مبرور . ( البخاري ومسلم ) Ai sha ( رضي الله عنها ) reported that she said: O Messenger of Allah! We consider jihad as the best deed. Should we not fight in Allah's Cause? He ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) replied: For you (women) the best jihad: Hajj Mabrur . [ Bukhari ] عن عائشة رضي الله عنها قالت: قلت يا رسول الله نرى الجهاد أفضل الأعمال، أفلا نجاهد؟ فقال: ل َ ك ُ ن َّ أفضل الجهاد ، حج مبرور . ( البخاري )

Excellence of Hajj (3):

Excellence of Hajj (3) 15 Aisha ( رضي الله عنها ) reported, Allah's Messenger ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) said: There is no day when Allah sets free more servants from Hell Fire than the Day of Arafah . He draws near, then praises them to the angels, saying: What do these seek ? [Muslim] عن ‏عائشة رضي الله عنها ‏ ‏أن رسول الله ‏ ‏صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ ‏قال: ‏ ‏ ما من يوم أكثر من أن يعتق الله فيه عبدا من النار من يوم ‏‏ عرفة . ‏ ‏وإنه ‏ ‏ليدنو ثم ‏ ‏يباهي بهم الملائكة فيقول : ما أراد هؤلاء . ( مسلم ) Abdullah ( رضي الله عنه ) reported that the Prophet ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) said: Alternate between Hajj and Umrah , for these two remove poverty and obliterate sins just as the blacksmith's bellows removes all impurities from metals like iron, gold and silver. The reward for Hajj Mabrur is nothing short of Paradise . [ Nasaee and Tirmidhee ] ‏عَنْ ‏ ‏عَبْدِ اللهِ رضي الله عنه ‏قَالَ:‏ ‏قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ ‏ ‏صَلى اللهُ عَليْهِ وَسَلمَ: ‏ ‏تَابِعُوا بَيْنَ الْحَجِّ وَالْعُمْرَةِ فَإِنهُمَا يَنفِيَان الفقرَ وَالذنوبَ كمَا يَنفِي ‏ ‏الْكِيرُ ‏ ‏خَبَثَ ‏ ‏الحَدِيدِ وَالذهَبِ وَالفِضَّةِ وَليْسَ لِلْحَجِّ المَبْرُور ثَوَابٌ دُونَ الْجَنةِ . ( النسائي والترمذي )

The Goal: Hajj Mabrur:

The Goal: Hajj Mabrur Hajj Mabrur (an accepted Hajj) is : A Hajj performed with the intention of seeking Allah's pleasure only (complete sincerity) A Hajj free of sin; i.e. conducted with full obedience to Allah ( سبحانه وتعالى ) A Hajj performed in accordance to the Sunnah of the Prophet ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) A Hajj that is not followed by disobedience 16

Another dimension to Hajj Mabrur:

Another dimension to Hajj Mabrur 17 Jabir ( رضي الله عنه ) narrated that the Prophet ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) said: The Hajj Mabrur has no reward except Jannah . He was asked: What makes Hajj Mabrur ? He said: Providing food (to people) and spreading good word . [Ahmad, Tabarani ( hasan ), Ibn Khuzayma (in his Sahih ), al- Bayhaqi , al-Hakim ( Sahih )] عن جابر رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال: الحج المبرور ليس له جزاء إلا الجنة ، قيل: وما بره؟ قال: إطعام الطعام وطيب الكلام . ( رواه أحمد والطبراني في الأوسط بإسناد حسن وابن خزيمة في صحيحه والبيهقي والحاكم وقال صحيح الإسناد )

Preparation for Hajj…:

Preparation for Hajj… 18 Aspects of Preparation Debts What to Take

Preparation for Hajj (1):

Preparation for Hajj (1) Sincerity Repentance from all past sins Resolve outstanding differences and seek forgiveness from others Pay/record all debts Write/update your will Make sure the wealth to be used for Hajj is from Halal sources Choose the company of the righteous Learn as much as possible about Hajj and Umra Fiqh and “how to” Meanings , spiritual and historical aspects 19

Preparation for Hajj (2):

Preparation for Hajj (2) Memorize some Du’a from Quran and Sunnah Learn how to pray Salat al- Janaazah (funeral prayer) Learn the etiquette of visiting the graves Learn the rulings of Salat as-Safar (traveler’s prayer), and wiping over socks in Wudu Mental and physical preparation Medical checkup 20


Debts Being debt free is not a precondition for performing Hajj. But debt is a very serious matter that should not be taken lightly, especially when leaving for Hajj. Narrated Salama bin Al- Akwa : A dead person was brought to the Prophet ( pbuh ) so that he might lead the funeral prayer for him. He asked, " Is he in debt ?" When the people replied in the negative, he led the funeral prayer. Another dead person was brought and he asked, " Is he in debt ?" They said, "Yes." He (refused to lead the prayer and) said, " Lead the prayer of your friend ." Abu Qatada said, "O Allah's Apostle! I undertake to pay his debt." Allah's Apostle then led his funeral prayer.  [Al- Bukhari , Book #37, Hadith #492] Pay all your debts before going for Hajj, if possible. If you are not able to, make arrangements for their payment during your absence, or in the event of your death. Ensure that family members are aware of any outstanding debts. Write an Islamic Will and make sure all your debts are recorded therein. 21

What to Take (1):

What to Take (1) When packing things for Hajj, keep in mind: Stay light. Extra items you don't need will just increase the weight you will have to carry around. Take necessary items like your prescription medication. Choose compact and light items. The camping section is a good place to look in. Do not take valuables. You run the risk of loosing them, and it just adds to your worries. Most items are available in Makkah, Madinah and Jeddah, and usually more affordable. The advantage is that you will buy only things that you really need. 24

What to Take (2):

What to Take (2) All necessary documents. Prepare travel documents (passport, etc.) well in advance. Make 2 sets of photocopies. Leave one at home and keep one with someone traveling in your group. Medication; especially prescription medication. Money (bills of $100 get you a better exchange rate). One credit card for emergencies (don’t keep it with the money). Check its expiration date. A small book of authentic Du’a . Hajj guide & checklists. Travel size toiletries, nail clipper, small scissors, comb, band-aids, baby wipes. Backpack, pocket knife. 25

What to Take (3) Clothing:

What to Take (3) Clothing Comfortable and modest clothes like Indo-Pak shalwar-qamees as well as the Saudi thoub (a one-piece head-to-toe garment) are ideal and are recommended for men. Women wear their normal comfortable clothes. Avoid nylon clothing as it tends to be uncomfortable in hot weather. Warm jacket, especially for Madinah at Fajr time during cold months. Slipper socks or rubber soled slippers: useful for Tawaf and Sa’y , except Tawaf al- Qudoom (arrival) and its Sa’y (for men) when you will be in a state of Ihram. Slippers/sandals/comfortable shoes. 26 Rubber soled slippers for Tawaf

Try to change it with wisdom and nice words if you can control yourself; otherwise keep silent. Ask Allah ( سبحانه وتعالى ) to give you patience. Be positive. Hope for the best, but be prepared for the worst. Have only one concern: will Allah ( سبحانه وتعالى ) accept my Hajj? And focus on the prize: Paradise! 32 A LOT of PATIENCE!!!

Juristic Method: Standard Calculation Method: Umm Al- Qura

Hajj Packages (1):

Hajj Packages (1) Most Hajj packages consist of 3 periods: Stay in Makkah Stay in Madinah Hajj days: 8 th – 13 th of Dhul-Hijjah Your Hajj package will be a combination of those 3 periods depending on the chronological order. Makkah gets very crowded the week before the Hajj days, i.e. 1 st to 7 th of Dhul-Hijjah , while Madinah gets less busy. Fasting, whether in Makkah or Madinah, during the first days of Dhul-Hijjah is recommended; but not during the days of Hajj, because of the physical effort required during those days. 36

Hajj Packages (2) Makkah First:

Hajj Packages (2) Makkah First If Makkah is your first stop then you assume Ihram for Umra before landing in Jeddah. Jeddah is beyond the Meeqat . Make the Niyah and say Talbiyah when Meeqat is announced during the flight, approximately 30-45 minutes before landing in Jeddah. You need to have a pair of Ihram towels with you for your Umra before travel. You can buy a second one for your Hajj from Makkah or Madinah, or wash and reuse the ones you used for Umra . Make sure you keep the Ihram towels in your handbag. Do not put them in your luggage. Put on Ihram towels in the airport at the last stop of your trip before boarding your flight to Jeddah. It’s extremely difficult to put on Ihram towels in the airplane. 37

Hajj Packages (3) Madinah First:

Hajj Packages (3) Madinah First If your first stop is Madinah then you do not need to assume Ihram on your way to Madinah. You can buy Ihram towels from Madinah. Your Meeqat for Umra is Dhul-Hulayfah ( Abyar 'Ali). If you leave Madinah on the 7 th or the 8 th of Dhul-Hijjah , then it may be difficult to do a Umra before Hajj. A few slides at the end of the Hajj procedure will explain how one can change his/her Niyah and show a number of possible scenarios… 38

Leaving Madinah on the 5th of Dhul-Hijjah:

Leaving Madinah on the 5 th of Dhul-Hijjah A newly enforced policy of the Ministry of Hajj would require all pilgrims to leave Madinah by the 5 th of Dhul-Hijjah . If Madinah was your first stop then you will assume Ihram for Umra that you perform upon arrival to Makkah . On the 8 th of Dhul-Hijjah you assume Ihram for Hajj from your place in Makkah (or Aziziyah ). If Makkah was your first stop and you already performed a Umra then you have the following options: Assume Ihram for Hajj from Dhul-Hulayfah . However, in this case you will be in a state of Ihram for a longer time, which may involve some hardship for some people. Alternatively,… Assume Ihram for a second Umra that you complete upon arrival to Makkah , and then assume Ihram for Hajj on the 8 th from your place. 39

Where is it located? - Geography of Hajj -:

Where is it located? - Geography of Hajj - 40 Mawaqeet Haram of Makkah

Mawaqeet (1):

Mawaqeet (1) Mawaqeet ( مواقيت ) is the plural of Meeqat ( ميقات ) : the geographical boundary that a person intending Hajj or Umra may not cross without assuming Ihram for Hajj or Umra , or both. A Muslim intending Hajj or Umra who crosses the Meeqat without Ihram must return to the Meeqat and make Ihram from there. If he/she does not return and make Ihram from the Meeqat , then he/she must offer an animal sacrifice as an expiation ( Fidya ). 41

Mawaqeet (2):

Mawaqeet (2) 42 Narrated Ibn Abbas : Allah's Apostle ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) made Dhu -l Hulayfa as the Meeqat for the people of Madinah; Al- Juhfa for the people of Sham; Qarn al- Manazil for the people of Najd; and Yalamlam for the people of Yemen; and these Mawaqeet are for the people at those very places, and besides them for those who come through those places with the intention of performing Hajj and Umra ; and whoever is living within these boundaries can assume lhram from the place he starts, and the people of Makkah can assume Ihram from Makkah . [ Bukhari & Muslim] عن ‏ ‏ابن عباس رضي الله عنه ‏قال‏ : ‏ إن النبي ‏صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏وقت ‏لأهل المدينة ‏ذا الحليفة ولأهل الشام الجحفة ولأهل نجد قرن المنازل ولأهل اليمن يلملم هن لهن ولمن أتى عليهن من غيرهن ممن أراد الحج والعمرة ومن كان دون ذلك فمن حيث أنشأ حتى أهل مكة من مكة . ( البخاري ومسلم ) ‏

Mawaqeet (3):

Mawaqeet (3) 43 Abu Zubair heard Jabir b. 'Abdullah ( رضي الله عنه ) as saying: I heard (and I think he carried it directly to the Messenger of Allah) him saying: For the people of Medina Dhu'l-Hulaifa is the place for entering upon the state of Ihram, and for (the people coming through the other way, i . e. Syria) it is Juhfa ; for the people of Iraq it is Dhatu ' Irq ; for the people of Najd it is Qarn (al- Manazil ) and for the people of Yemen it is Yalamlam . [Muslim] ‏ عن أبي الزبير عن جابر رضي الله عنه قال: سمعت ، أحسبه رفع الحديث إلى رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم ، قال: مهل أهل المدينة من ذي الحليفة، والطريق الآخر الجحفة، ومهل أهل العراق من ذات عرق ، ومهل أهل نجد من قرن، ومهل أهل اليمن من يلملم . ( مسلم ) Narrated Ibn ' Umar : When these two towns (Basra and Kufa ) were opened, the people went to ' Umar and said: O Chief of the faithful believers! The Prophet fixed Qarn as the Meeqat for the people of Najd, it is beyond our way and it is difficult for us to pass through it . He said: Take as your Meeqat a place situated opposite to Qarn on your usual way. So, he fixed Dhatu ' Irq (as their Meeqat ) . [ Bukhari ] ‏عن ابن عمر رضي الله عنهما قال : لما فتح هذان المصران أتوا عمر فقالوا: يا أمير المؤمنين إن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم حد َّ لأهل نجد قرنا وهو جور عن طريقنا وإنا إن أردنا قرنا شق علينا ، قال: فانظروا حذوها من طريقكم فحد َّ لهم ذات عرق ‏. ( البخاري )

Haram of Makkah حَرَمُ مكة :

Haram of Makkah حَرَم ُ مكة The Haram of Makkah is the sanctified area surrounding Makkah. It was delimited by Ibraheem ( عليه الصلاة والسلام ) under the guidance of Jibreel ( عليه السلام ). After FatH Makkah (the opening of Makkah), Prophet Muhammad ( صلى الله عليه وسلم ) sent Tameem Ibn Asd al- Khuza'ee to renew the boundaries of the Haram . Flags have been put on the mountains and hills to indicate the limits of the Haram . The number of flags reached 943 at some point, but most of them are ruined. Area of the Haram = 212 mi 2 (550 Km 2 ) Perimeter of the Haram = 79 mi (127 Km) 46

Du'a for Travel 59 Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest, How perfect He is, The One Who has placed this (transport) at our service, and we ourselves would not have been capable of that, and to our Lord is our final destiny. O Allah, we ask You for birr and taqwaa in this journey of ours, and we ask You for deeds which please You. O Allah, facilitate our journey and let us cover its distance quickly. O Allah, You are The Companion on the journey and The Successor over the family, O Allah, I take refuge with You from the difficulties of travel, from having a change of hearts and being in a bad predicament, and I take refuge in You from an ill fated outcome with wealth and family . [Narrated by Imam Muslim] عن ابنِ عمر رَضِيَ اللَّه عنهما، أَنَّ رسولَ اللَّه صَلّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وسَلَّم كانَ إِذا اسْتَوَى عَلَى بعِيرهِ خَارجاً إِلي سفَرٍ، كَبَّرَ ثلاثاً، ثُمَّ قالَ: « سبْحانَ الذي سخَّرَ لَنَا هذا وما كنَّا له مُقرنينَ، وَإِنَّا إِلى ربِّنَا لمُنقَلِبُونَ. اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّا نَسْأَلُكَ في سَفَرِنَا هذا البرَّ والتَّقوى، ومِنَ العَمَلِ ما تَرْضى. اللَّهُمَّ هَوِّنْ علَيْنا سفَرَنَا هذا وَاطْوِ عنَّا بُعْدَهُ، اللَّهُمَّ أَنتَ الصَّاحِبُ في السَّفَرِ وَالخَلِيفَةُ في الأهْلِ. اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ وعْثَاءِ السَّفَرِ، وكآبةِ المنظَرِ، وَسُوءِ المنْقلَبِ في المالِ والأهلِ وَالوَلدِ » وإِذا رجَعَ قَالهُنَّ وزاد فيِهنَّ: « آيِبونَ تَائِبونَ عَابِدُون لِرَبِّنَا حَامِدُونَ » ( رواه مسلم )

Jeddah will be a first test for your patience. The wait time in the Hajj Terminal can be 2 to 12 hours or even more. Show patience and be nice to the staff.
