DESCRIPTION OF HAJJ (PILGRIMAGE).


DESCRIPTION OF HAJJ (PILGRIMAGE).

Hajj is one of the best acts of worship. It is one of the pillars of Islam with which Allaah sent Muhammad and without which a person’s religious commitment is incomplete. Worship cannot bring a person closer to Allaah and cannot be accepted unless it meets two conditions:

1) Sincerity towards Allaah alone, i.e., it is done to seek the Countenance of Allaah and the Hereafter, and is not done to show off, to enhance one’s reputation or for worldly gain.

2) Following the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) in word and deed. Following the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) can only be achieving by knowing his Sunnah.

Hence the one who wants to worship Allaah by doing any act of worship – Hajj or anything else – has to learn the teachings of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) concerning it, so that his actions will be in accordance with the Sunnah.

1) HAJJ IS ONE THE PILLAR OF ISLAM. :-

“And Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah) to the House is a duty that mankind owes to Allaah, those who can afford the expenses (for one’s conveyance, provision and residence).

(SURAH AL IMRAN 3 VERSE 97)

And when We designated for Abraham the site of the House (saying): “Do not associate anything with Me, and purify My House (Kabah) for those who walk around it and those who stand and those who bow and make prostration.”

(SURAH HAJJ 22 VERSE 26)

Narrated Ibn ‘Umar:

Allah’s Apostle said: Islam is based on (the following) five (principles):

1. To testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and Muhammad is Allah’s Apostle.
2. To offer the (compulsory congregational) prayers dutifully and perfectly.
3. To pay Zakat (i.e. obligatory charity) .
4. To perform Hajj. (i.e. Pilgrimage to Mecca)
5. To observe fast during the month of Ramadan.

It was narrated from Ibn ‘Umar that:

A man said to him: “Why don’t you go out and fight?” He said: “I heard the Messenger of Allah [SAW] say: ‘Islam is built on five (pillars): Testimony that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, establishing Salah, giving Zakah, Hajj, and fasting Ramadan.'” (Sahih)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 6, Book 1, Hadith 5004)

_______________________________________________________________________________________

2) VIRTUES OF HAJJ. :-

Abu Hurairah narrated that :

The Messenger of Allah said: “Whoever performs Hajj for Allah, and he does not have sexual relations nor commit any sin, then his previous sins will be forgiven.” (Sahih)

SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Vol. 2, Book 4, Hadith 811)

Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet (p.b.u.h) said, “Whoever performs Hajj for Allah’s pleasure and does not have sexual relations with his wife, and does not do evil or sins then he will return (after Hajj free from all sins) as if he were born anew.”

SAHIH BUKHARI (Vol. 2, Book 26, Hadith 596)
SAHIH BUKHARI (Vol. 3, Book 28, Hadith 45)
SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 4, Hadith 2628)

Abu Huraira (Allah be pleased with him) reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying. He who came to this House (Ka’ba) (with the intention of performing Pilgrimage), and neither spoke indecently nor did he act wickedly. would return (free from sin) as on the (very first day) his mother bore him.

SAHIH MUSLIM (Book 7, Hadith 3129)

Ibn ‘abbas said:

“The Messenger of Allah said: ‘Perform Hajj and ‘Umrah consecutively; for they remove poverty and sin as the bellows removes impurity from iron.”'(Hasan)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 4, Hadith 2631)

Abdullah (bin Mas’ud) narrated that:

The Messenger of Allah said: “Alternate between Hajj and Umrah; for those two remove poverty and sins just as the bellows removes filth from iron, gold, and silver – and there is no reward for Al-Hajj Al-Mabrur except for Paradise.” (Hasan)

SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Vol. 2, Book 4, Hadith 810)
SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 4, Hadith 2632)


Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle said, “(The performance of) `Umra is an expiation for the sins committed (between it and the previous one). And the reward of Hajj Mabrur (the one accepted by Allah) is nothing except Paradise.

SAHIH BUKHARI (Vol. 3, Book 27, Hadith 1)
SAHIH MUSLIM (Book 7, Hadith 3127)

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah’s Apostle was asked, “What is the best deed?” He replied, “To believe in Allah and His Apostle (Muhammad). The questioner then asked, “What is the next (in goodness)? He replied, “To participate in Jihad (religious fighting) in Allah’s Cause.” The questioner again asked, “What is the next (in goodness)?” He replied, “To perform Hajj (Pilgrim age to Mecca) ‘Mubrur, (which is accepted by Allah and is performed with the intention of seeking Allah’s pleasure only and not to show off and without committing a sin and in accordance with the traditions of the Prophet).”

SAHIH BUKHARI (Vol 1,Book 2,Hadith 25)

___________________________________________________________________________________________

3) TYPES OF HAJJ. :-

There are three types of Hajj: Tamattu’, Ifraad and Qiraan.

HAJJ TAMATTU :-

Tamattu’ means entering ihraam for ‘Umrah only during the months of Hajj (the months of Hajj are Shawwaal, Dhu’l-Qi’dah and Dhu’l-Hijjah; see al-Sharh al-Mumti’, 7/62). When the pilgrim reaches Makkah he performs tawaaf and saa’i for ‘Umrah, and shaves his head or cuts his hair, and exits ihraam. Then when the day of al-Tarwiyah, which is the 8th of Dhu’l-Hijjah, comes, he enters ihraam for Hajj only, and does all the actions of Hajj. So Tamattu’ involves a complete ‘Umrah and a complete Hajj.

IFRAAD :-

Ifraad means entering ihraam for Hajj only. When the pilgrim reaches Makkah he performs tawaaf al-qudoom (tawaaf of arrival) and saa’i for Hajj, but he does not shave or cut his hair and does not exit ihraam, rather he remains in ihraam until he exits ihraam after stoning Jamarat al-‘Aqabah on the day of Eid. If he delays the saa’i of Hajj until after the tawaaf of Hajj, there is nothing wrong with that.

QIRAAN :-

Qiraan means entering ihraam for ‘Umrah and Hajj both together. Or entering ihraam for ‘Umrah first then including Hajj in that before starting the tawaaf of Hajj. That is done by intending that his tawaaf and saa’i will be for both Hajj and ‘Umrah. The actions done in Qiraan are the same as those done in Ifraad, except that the pilgrim doing Qiraan has to offer a hadiy (sacrifice) whereas the pilgrim doing Ifraad does not.

The best of these three types of Hajj is Tamattu’. This is what the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) enjoined upon his companions and urged them to do. Even if a person enters ihraam for Qiraan or Ifraad, then it is strongly recommended for him to change his intention to ‘Umrah, then complete ‘Umrah and exit ihraam, so that he will then be doing Tamattu’. He may do that after doing tawaaf al-qudoom and saa’i – because when the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did tawaaf and saa’i during his Farewell Pilgrimage, and his companions were with him, he told everyone who did not have a sacrificial animal (hadiy) to change his intention and make his ihraam for ‘Umrah and to cut his hair and exit ihraam, and he said, “Were it not that I have brought the hadiy with me, I would do what I have commanded you to do.”

_______________________________________________________________________________________

4) CONDITIONAL OBLIGATION OF HAJJ ONCE IN A LIFETIME. :-

Hajj is a religious obligation on every Muslim once in their life time for those who can afford it. According to the majority of the scholars Hajj was legislated in the ninth year of Hijrah (Prophet’s migration from Makkah to Medina), meaning the year of the Delegations (al-Wufood), in which the ayah of the Qur’an was revealed,

“And Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah) to the House is a duty that mankind owes to Allaah, those who can afford the expenses (for one’s conveyance, provision and residence).

(SURAH AL IMRAN 3 VERSE 97)

This Ayah established the obligation of performing Hajj.There are many ahadith that mention it as one of the pillars and fundamentals of Islam, and this is agreed upon by the Muslims. According to texts and the consensus of the scholars, it is only obligatory for the adult Muslim to perform it once during his lifetime.

It was narrated that Abu Hurairah said:

“The Messenger of Allah addressed the people and said: ‘Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, has enjoined upon you Hajj.’ A man said: ‘Every year?’ He remained silent until he had repeated it three times. Then he said: ‘If I said yes, it would be obligatory, and if it were obligatory you would not be able to do it. Leave me alone so long as I have left you alone. Those who came before you were destroyed because they asked too many questions and differed with their prophets. If I command you to do something then follow it as much as you can, and if I forbid you to do something then avoid it.”‘ (Sahih)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 4, Hadith 2620)
SAHIH MUSLIM (Book 7, Hadith 3095)

____________________________________________________________________________________

5) CONDITIONS OF HAJJ BEING OBLIGATORY. :-

The scholars (may Allaah have mercy on them) have stated the conditions of Hajj being obligatory, which, if they are met, make it obligatory for a person to perform Hajj, and without them Hajj is not obligatory. There are five such conditions: being Muslim, being of sound mind, being an adult, being free and being able to do it.

1) BEING MUSLIM :-

This applies to all acts of worship, because worship done by a kaafir is not valid. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And nothing prevents their contributions from being accepted from them except that they disbelieved in Allaah and in His Messenger”

(SURAH AT-TAWBAH 9 VERSE 54)

It was narrataead from Ibn ‘Abbas that the Prophet sent Mu’adh bin Jabal to Yemen and said:”You are going to some people from among the people of the Book. Call them to bear witness that there is none worthly of worship except Allah and that I am the Messenger of Allah. If they obey you in that, then teach them that Allah has enjoined upon them five prayers every day and night. If they obey you in that, then teach them that Allah has enjoined upon them Sadaqah (Zakah) from their wealth, to be taken from their rich and given to their poor. If they obey you in that, then do not touch and fear the supplication of the one who has been wronged, for there is no barrier between it and Allah, the Mighty and sublime.” (Sahih)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 3, Hadith 2523)

So the kaafir is commanded first of all to enter Islam. If he becomes Muslim, then we tell him to pray, give zakaah, fast, perform Hajj and all the other duties of Islam.

2 & 3) BEING OF SOUND MIND AND BEING AN ADULT :-

Narrated ‘Ali:

that the Messenger of Allah (p.b.u.h) said: “The pen has been lifted from three; for the sleeping person until he awakens, for the boy until he becomes young man and for the mentally insane until he regains sanity.”

SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Book 13, Hadith 1)

It was narrated from ‘Aishah that the Prophet said:

“The pen has been lifted from three: From the sleeper until he wakes up, from the minor until he grows up, and from the insane until he comes back to his senses or recovers.”

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 4, Book 27, Hadith 3462)

So a child is not obliged to perform Hajj, but if his parents take him for Hajj, his Hajj is valid; the child will have the reward of Hajj and his parents will also have a reward.

Ibn Abbas (Allah be pleased with them) reported: A woman lifted up her child and said: Messenger of Allah, would the child be credited with having performed the hajj? Thereupon he said: Yes, and there would be a reward for you.

SAHIH MUSLIM (Book #007, Hadith #3092)
SAHIH MUSLIM (Book #007, Hadith #3091)

Karaib reported: A woman lifted a child and said: Messenger of Allah, would he be credited with hajj? He said: Yes. and for you there would be a reward.

SAHIH MUSLIM (Book #007, Hadith #3093)

4) BEING FREE :-

Hajj is not obligatory for a slave, because he is distracted by his duties towards his master.

5) BEING ABLE TO DO IT :-

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah) to the House (Ka‘bah) is a duty that mankind owes to Allaah, those who can afford the expenses (for one’s conveyance, provision and residence)”

(SURAH AL-IMRAN 3 VERSE 97)

This includes being able both physically and financially. What is meant by being physically able is that one is sound in body and can bear the hardship of travelling to the sacred House of Allaah. Being financially able means that one has enough funds to get to the sacred House of Allaah and back again.

THE STANDING COMMITTEE SAID (11/30) :-

Being able to do Hajj means that one is sound in body and has means of transportation to reach the sacred House of Allaah whether by plane, car or riding animal, or by renting such means, according to his situation, and that he has sufficient provisions to get there and back. That should be surplus to what he needs to spend on those on whom he is obliged to spend, until he returns from Hajj. A woman should also have a husband or mahram with whom to travel to Hajj or ‘Umrah. The money that he uses to reach the sacred House should be surplus to his basic needs, the spending enjoined on him by sharee’ah, and what he needs to pay off his debts. What is meant by debts here is things that he owes to Allaah, such as expiations, and what he owes to other people.

If a person has a debt, and he does not have enough money to both do Hajj and pay off the debt, then he should pay off the debt first and he does not have to go for Hajj. Some people think that the reason is that he did not ask permission from the one who whom he owes the money, and that if he gives him permission, then there is nothing wrong with it.

There is no basis for this thinking, rather the reason is being in debt. It is known that if the lender gives the debtor permission to go for Hajj, that does not mean the debt is waived, and he will not have discharged his duty because of this permission. Hence it should be said to the debtor: Pay off your debt first, then if you have enough left, go for Hajj; otherwise Hajj is not obligatory in your case.

If the debtor who did not go for Hajj because of his debt dies, then he will meet Allaah with his Islam complete and not lacking, because Hajj was not obligatory for him, just as zakaah and also Hajj are not obligatory for one who is poor. But if he does Hajj before paying off his debt and then dies before paying it off, then he is in danger, because even the martyr is forgiven for everything except debt, so what about anyone else? What is meant by the spending enjoined on him by sharee’ah is what he is obliged by sharee’ah to spend on himself and his family, without being either extravagant or stingy. If he is of average means and wants to show signs of richness such as buying an expensive car so that he will look rich, and he does not have enough money to perform Hajj, then he has to sell the car and use that money to perform Hajj, and he should buy a car that suits his situation. His spending on this car is not a kind of spending that is approved of in sharee’ah, rather it is extravagance, which is forbidden in Islam.

What is meant by financially able is that he should have enough for his family until he returns, and he should have an income after he returns to take care of himself and those on whom he spends, such as rent from property, a salary and business earnings.Hence he does not have to use the capital of his business, the profit of which he spends on himself and his family, to do Hajj, if that loss of capital will result in a loss of profits which in turn will mean that his family does not have enough.

6) PILLARS OF HAJJ. :-

Among the pillars of Hajj, even if one rule is mistakenly missed, then Hajj would be nullified.The person who leaves a pillar (Arkan) will not have his Hajj complete and it becomes null and Void.

1) INTENTION :-

If he is doing Tamattu’, he should say,

“Labbayk Allaahumma bi ‘Umrah (Here I am, O Allaah, for ‘Umrah).”

If he is doing Qiraan, he should say,

“Labbayk Allaahumma bi Hijjah wa ‘Umrah (Here I am, O Allaah, for Hajj and ‘Umrah).”

If he is doing Ifraad, he should say,

“Labbayk Allaahumma Hajjan (Here I am, O Allaah, for Hajj).”

Then he should recite the Talbiyah

It was narrated from Khallad bin As-Sa’ib, from his father that the Messenger of Allah said:”Jibril came to me and said: ‘O Muhammad! Tell your Companions to rise their voices when reciting the Talbiyah.” (Sahih)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 4, Hadith 2754)
SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Vol. 2, Book 4, Hadith 829)

It was narrated from ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar that the Prophet used to say:“Labbaika Allahumma Labbaik, Labbaika la sharika laka labbaik. Innal-hamda wan-ni’mata laka wal-mulk, la sharika lak (Here I am, O Allah, here I am. Here I am, You have no partner, here I am. Verily all praise and blessings are Yours, and all sovereignty, You have no partner).” (Sahih)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 4, Hadith 2749)
SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 4, Hadith 2750)
SAHIH MUSLIM (Book 7, Hadith 2668)

NOTE :-

Men should raise their voices when saying this, but a woman should recite in such a manner that those who are beside her can hear it, unless there is a man beside her who is not one of her mahrams, in which case she should recite it silently.

The muhrim (person who has entered ihraam) should recite the Talbiyah a great deal, especially when circumstances and times change, such as when going up to a high place or going down to a low place, or when night or day begin. After that he should ask Allaah for His good pleasure and for Paradise, and seek refuge in His Mercy from the Fire. The Talbiyah is prescribed in ‘Umrah from the moment one enters ihraam until one starts Tawaaf. In Hajj it is prescribed from the moment one enters ihraam until one stones Jamarat al-‘Aqabah on the day of Eid.

If the person who is entering ihraam fears some obstacle that may prevent him from completing his pilgrimage (such as sickness, an enemy, being stopped from proceeding any further, etc), then he should stipulate a condition when entering ihraam by saying, “If I am prevented then my exiting ihraam is where I am prevented” – i.e., if something prevents me from completing my pilgrimage such as sickness or delay etc, then I will exit my ihraam.

Narrated `Aisha:

Allah’s Apostle entered upon Dubaa bint Az-Zubair and said to her, “Do you have a desire to perform the Hajj?” She replied, “By Allah, I feel sick.” He said to her, “Intend to perform Hajj and stipulate something by saying, ‘O Allah, I will finish my Ihram at any place where You stop me (i.e. I am unable to go further).” She was the wife of Al-Miqdad bin Al-Aswad.

SAHIH BUKHARI (Vol. 7, Book 62, Hadith 26)

NOTE :-

If he stipulates this condition and something happens to prevent him from completing his pilgrimage, then he exits his ihraam and does not have to do anything (i.e offer a sacrifice in compensation).But the one who does not fear that some obstacle may prevent him from completing his pilgrimage does not have to stipulate any conditions, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did not stipulate conditions nor did he command everyone to do so. Rather he told Dubaa’ah bint al-Zubayr to do that because she was sick.

2) STAYING IN THE GROUND OF ARAFAH.

3) PERFORM TAWAFE ZIYARAT OR IFADHA (7 TIMES AROUND KABA)

4) DO SAAII OF SAFA & MARAWAH (TOTAL OF 7 ONE-WAY TRIPS.BEGINNING AT SAFA).

________________________________________________________________________________________

7) OBLIGATORY DUTIES OF HAJJ. :-

Someone who leaves an obligation(Without Valid reason ) must compensate for it by slaughtering a sacrificial animal.

1) TYING UP OF IHRAM RIGHT FROM MEEQAT.

2) STAYING AT ARAFAH TILL MAGHRIB.

3) SPENDING THE NIGHT IN MUZDALIFAH.

4) ON 10TH DHUL HIJJA PELTING OF 7 PEBBLES AND ONLY TO BIG JAMRAH BY SAYING ALLAHU AKBAR,SHAVING OR SHORTENING THE HAIR ON 11TH & 12TH DHUL-HIJJAH ,PELTING OF PEBBLES TO ALL THE THREE JAMRAAT BY SAYING ALLAHU AKBAR.

5) SPENDING 11TH & 12TH DHUL-HIJJAH NIGHTS IN MEENA.

6) STONING THE JAMARAT WITH PEBBLES.

7) PERFORM TAWAF-E-WIDA (FAREWELL TAWAF) EXCEPT FOR MENSTUARATING WOMEN.

NOTE :-

If someone, intentionally misses an obligation, then sacrificing of sheep will be obligatory on him/her. The sheep should be sacrificed in Haram & its meat is to be distributed in Makkah, the Haji, himself could not consume anything from it.

With regard to the one who miss any obligatory unintentionally,Out of forgetfulness or ignorance or because he is forced to do so, he does not have to offer any expiation, because Allaah says:

“And there is no sin on you concerning that in which you made a mistake except in regard to what your hearts deliberately intend”

(SURAH AL AHZAAB 33 VERSE 5)
____________________________________________________________________________________________

8) IHRAAM :-

Ihraam means having the intention of starting the rituals of Hajj or ‘Umrah.The pilgrim should observe the Sunnahs of ihraam namely doing ghusl, applying perfume and praying. Then he should enter ihraam after he finishes the prayer or after boarding his means of transportation.

IS THERE ANY SPECIFIC GARMENT FOR IHRAAM ? :-

There is no specific garment for ihram in the case of women; rather a woman may wear whatever she wants, except that she should not wear the niqaab or gloves. The niqaab is that which is worn over the face, in which there is a hole for the eyes; the gloves are that which is worn on the hands. In the case of men, there is a specific garment for ihram, namely the izaar (lower garment or waist wrapper) and rida’ (upper garment). He should not wear a thobe or pants or headgear or burnoose or khufoof (leather slippers).

It was narrated from Ibn ‘Umar that a man stood up and said:”O Messenger of Allah! What garments do you command us to wear in Ihram?” The Messenger of Allah said; “Do not wear shirts, or pants, or Khuffs unless a man does not have any sandals, in which case he may wear Khuffs that come lower than the ankles. And do not wear any garment that has been touched by (dyed with) saffron or Wars. And a woman in Ihram should not cover her face or wear gloves.”(Sahih)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 4, Hadith 2682)

SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Vol. 2, Book 4, Hadith 833)
SAHIH BUKHARI (Vol. 3, Book 29, Hadith 64)

(MAJMOO AL-FATAAWA IBN UTHAYMEEN 22/13)

IS IT ESSENTIAL FOR THE IHRAAM GARMENTS TO BE NEW ?

With regard to the izaar (lower garment or waist wrapper) and rida’ (upper garment) for the man in ihram, the Sunnah is that they should be white and clean; it is not essential that they be new.

IBN QUDAAMAH SAID :-

He should wear two clean garments, namely the izaar and rida’, because the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Let one of you enter ihram in an izaar and rida’ and sandals.” It is mustahabb for them to be clean, either new or washed, because we like for him to be clean in his body and also in his clothing. It is better for them to be white, because

It was narrated from Samurah that the Prophet said:”Wear white clothes for they are purer and better, and shroud your dead in them.”‘ (Sahih)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 1, Hadith 1897)
SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 6, Book 2, Hadith 5324)
SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Vol. 2, Book 5, Hadith 994)

(AL-MUGNI 10/76)

SHAYKH IBN UTHAYMEEN SAID :-

It is not essential for the izaar and rida’ to be new, but it is mustahabb to enter ihram in two clean white garments; the cleaner the better, because Allah is Beautiful and loves beauty.

(MAJMOO AL-FATAAWA IBN UTHAYMEEN 22/12)

DOING GHUSL :-

It is permissible for the pilgrim in ihram to do ghusl for the sake of cleanliness, because it is proven that the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) did ghusl when he was in ihram.


NOTE :-

Doing ghusl when entering ihraam is Sunnah for both men and women, even women who are bleeding following childbirth or menstruating.

A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Asma’ hint ‘Umais gave birth to Muhammad b Abu Bakr near Dhu’I-Hulaifa. The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) commanded Abu Bakr to convey to her that she should take a bath and then enter into the state of Ihram.

SAHIH MUSLIM (Book 7, Hadith 2762)
SAHIH MUSLIM (Book 7, Hadith 2763)

It was narrated that Jabir said:

“Asma’ bint ‘Umais gave birth to Muhammad bin Abi Bakr and she sent word to the Messenger of Allah asking him what she should do. He told here to perform Ghusl and wrap her private parts in a cloth, and to begin the talbiyah. (Sahih)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 4, Hadith 2763)

(MAJMOO FATAAWA IBN UTHAYMEEN 22/144)

APPLYING PERFUME TO HEAD & BODY :-

It was narrated that ‘Aishah said:

“I used to put perfume on the Messenger of Allah when he entered Ihram, using the best perfume I could find. (Sahih)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 4, Hadith 2691)

It was narrated that ‘Aishah said:

“I put perfume on the Messenger of Allah for his Ihram before he entered Ihram, and for his exiting Ihram when he exited Ihram.”(Sahih)

It was narrated that ‘Aishah said:

“I saw the glistening of the perfume on the head of the Messenger of Allah while he was initiating Ihram. (Sahih)

NOTE :-

With regard to applying perfume to the ihram garments, this is not permissible because the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) forbade the muhrim to wear any garment that had been touched by perfume.

It was narrated from Ibn ‘Umar that a man stood up and said:”O Messenger of Allah! What garments do you command us to wear in Ihram?” The Messenger of Allah said; “Do not wear shirts, or pants, or Khuffs unless a man does not have any sandals, in which case he may wear Khuffs that come lower than the ankles. And do not wear any garment that has been touched by (dyed with) saffron or Wars. And a woman in Ihram should not cover her face or wear gloves.”(Sahih)

SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Vol. 2, Book 4, Hadith 833)
SAHIH BUKHARI (Vol. 3, Book 29, Hadith 64)

Shaykh Ibn Uthaymeen was asked about applying perfume to the ihram garments, and he said:

That is not permissible, because the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Do not wear any garment that has been perfumed with saffron or wars.

THINGS THAT ARE FORBIDDEN IN IHRAAM :-

https://islaahh.wordpress.com/2012/10/12/things-that-are-forbidden-in-ihraam/

__________________________________________________________________________________________________

9) RULING ON WOMEN COVERING FACE IN IHRAAM. :-

Wearing niqaab is one of the things that are forbidden when in ihraam. A woman can cover her face in front of non-mahram men after entering ihraam with part of her garment, lowering it from the top of her head over her face, without committing the forbidden action of wearing niqaab.

IBN QUDAAMAH SAID :-

Ibn al-Mundhir said: The fact that wearing the burqa’ (face veil – during ihraam) is makrooh is narrated from Sa’d, Ibn ‘Umar, Ibn ‘Abbaas and ‘Aa’ishah. We do not know of anyone who held a different view. Al-Bukhaari and others narrated that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:

It was narrated from Ibn ‘Umar that a man stood up and said:”O Messenger of Allah! What garments do you command us to wear in Ihram?” The Messenger of Allah said; “Do not wear shirts, or pants, or Khuffs unless a man does not have any sandals, in which case he may wear Khuffs that come lower than the ankles. And do not wear any garment that has been touched by (dyed with) saffron or Wars. And a woman in Ihram should not cover her face or wear gloves.”(Sahih)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 4, Hadith 2682)
SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 4, Hadith 2674)
SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Vol. 2, Book 4, Hadith 833)
SAHIH BUKHARI (Vol. 3, Book 29, Hadith 64)

But if she needs to cover her face because men are passing close by her, then she should lower part of her garment from the top of her head over her face. This was narrated from ‘Uthmaan and ‘Aa’ishah, and this was the view of ‘Ata’, Maalik, al-Thawri, al-Shaafa’i, Ishaaq and Muhammad ibn al-Hasan, and we do not know of any opposing view. This is because of the report.

Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin: riders would pass us when we accompanied the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) while we were in the sacred state (wearing ihram). When they came by us, one of us would let down her outer garment from her head over her face, and when they had passed on, we would uncover our faces.

ABU DAWOOD (Book #10, Hadith #1829)

10) DESCRIPTION OF BLACK STONE. :-

Touching, kissing or pointing to the Black Stone – this is the first thing to be done when starting Tawaaf, whether it is for Hajj or ‘Umrah, or voluntary Tawaaf.Kissing the Black Stone during tawaaf is one of the established Sunnahs of tawaaf, if it is possible to do it without pushing and shoving or annoying anyone else by your action, following the example of the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him). If it is not possible to do it except by pushing and shoving and annoying others, then one should not do it, and it is sufficient to point to it with one’s hand, especially for women, because the woman is ‘awrah and because pushing and shoving is not allowed for men, so it is even less so for women. If it is possible for a woman for kiss the Black Stone without pushing and shoving, it is not permissible to her to uncover her face whilst doing so, because of the presence of men who are not mahrams for her in that place.

KISSING THE BLACKSTONE DURING TAWAAF :-

jabir b. Abdullah (Allah be pleased with them) reported that when Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) proceeded to Mecca, he came to it (the Black Stone). he kissed it. and moved to his right. and moved quickly in three circuits, and walked in four circuits.

SAHIH MUSLIM (Book #007, Hadith #2806)

IF A PERSON IS UNABLE TO TOUCH THE BLACK STONE,THEN HE CAN POINT TO IT WITH HIS HAND AND SAY “ALLAHU AKBAR” :-

Narrated Ibn `Abbas:

Allah’s Apostle performed Tawaf (of the Ka`ba) ending a camel (at that time the Prophet had foot injury). Whenever he came to the Corner (having the Black Stone) he would point out towards it with a thing in his hand and say, “Allahu-Akbar.”

SAHIH BUKHARI (Vol. 2, Book 26, Hadith 697)

IT IS SUNNAH TO TOUCH BLACKSTONE AFTER PERFORMING TWO RAK’AHS AT MAQAAM IBRAHEEM, BEFORE PERFORMING AL-SAAII :-

Passing the Black Stone and acknowledging it, after praying two rak’ahs of Tawaaf and before going out to perform al-Saa’iee is proven to be part of the saheeh Sunnah, but it is mustahabb (encouraged), not waajib (obligatory), so there is nothing wrong with not doing it

Jabir narrated:

“When the Prophet arrived in Makkah, he entered the Masjid and touched the (Black) Stone, then went to his right and performed Raml (walking quickly) for three (circuits) and walking for four. Then he came to the Maqam and said: ‘And take you (people) the Maqam (place) of Ibrahim as a place of prayer.’ Then he performed two Rak’ah while the Maqam was between him and the House. Then he came to the (Black) Stone after the two Rak’ah to touch it, then he left to As-Safa – I think – he said: Indeed As-Safa and Al-Marwah are among the symbols of Allah.” (Sahih)

SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Vol. 2, Book 4, Hadith 856)

It was narrated that Jabir said:

“When the Messenger of Allah came to Makkah he entered the Masjid and touched the Stone, then he moved to his right and walked rapidly for three (rounds) and then walked (at a regular pace) for four. Then he came to the Maqam and said: ‘And take you (people) the Maqam (place) of Ibrahim as a place of prayer and prayed two Rakahs with the Maqam between him and the House. Then he came to the Hosue after praying those two Rakahs and touched the Stone, then he went out to As-Safa.” (Sahih) Chpater 150. In How Many Rounds Should Be Quick?

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 4, Hadith 2942)
SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 4, Hadith 2965)

NOTE :-

It is prescribed at this point to touch it only.


AL-NAWAWI SAID :-

This is evidence in favour of the opinion of al-Shaafi’i and other scholars, that after performing Tawaaf al-Qudoom (the Tawaaf of Arrival) and praying behind the Maqaam, a person should go back to the Black Stone and acknowledge it, then go out through the Gate of Safaa to perform al-Saa’iee. The scholars agree that this acknowledgement is not obligatory, but it is Sunnah; the one who does not do it is not obliged to offer a sacrifice in compensation.

(SAHEEH MUSLIM BI SHARH AL-NAWAWI 8/428)

THE BLACK STONE WILL COME FORTH ON THE DAY OF RESURRECTION AND WILL TESTIFY IN FAVOR OF THOSE WHO TOUCHED IT IN TRUTH :-

Ibn Abbas narrated that:

The Messenger of Allah said about the (Black) Stone: “By Allah! Allah will raise it on the Day of Resurrection with two eyes by which it sees and a tongue that it speaks with, testifying to whoever touched it in truth.” (Hasan)

SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Vol. 2, Book 4, Hadith 961)

NOTE :-

It is not permissible for a Muslim to annoy other Muslims at the Stone by hitting or fighting. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) told us that the Stone will testify in favour of those who touched it in sincerity, which is not the case when a person touches it by disturbing the slaves of Allaah.

Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said to ‘Umar: “O ‘Umar, you are a strong man, do not crowd around the Stone and disturb the weak. If you find space, then touch it, otherwise just face it and say ‘Allaahu akbar.

(MUSNAD AHMAD 191)

11) DESCRIPTION OF TAWAAF :-

Tawaaf or circumambulation of the Ka’bah is a pure act of worship and the basic principle with regard to acts of worship is tawqeef (i.e., to do them exactly as prescribed in the Qur’aan and Sunnah). It is proven from the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) that he used to say takbeer in his tawaaf every time he came in line with the Black Stone, and undoubtedly the person who is doing tawaaf comes in line with it at the end of the seventh circuit, so it is Sunnah for him to say takbeer just as it is Sunnah for him to say takbeer at the beginning of every circuit when he comes in line with it, following the example of the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him), along with pointing at the Black Stone and kissing it if he can.

THE CONDITION OF PERFORMING TAWAAF ARE THIRTEEN :-

1) BEING A MUSLIM.

2) BEING SANE.

3) DETERMINED INTENTION.

4) PASSING OF THE BEGINNING OF THE TIME OF TAWAAF.

5) COVERING ONE’S PRIVATE PARTS FOR THE ONE WHO IS AIBLE.

6) CLEANLINESS FROM BOTH THE GREATER & LESSER STATES OF IMPURITY,EXCEPT FOR A CHILD.

7)COMPLETING SEVEN ROUNDS AND BEING CERTAIN THAT ONE HAS DONE SEVEN.

8) MAKING THE KA’BAH ON THE LEFT SIDE ,HE WHO DOES OTHERWISE MUST REPEAT THE CIRCUMAMBULATION.

9) NOT GOING BACKWARDS WHILE WALKING.

10) WALKING BY THE ONE WHO IS ABLE.

11) MAKING THE ROUNDS CONTINOUSLY.

12) MAKING THE ROUND INSIDE THE MASJID AL-HARAAM.

13) STARTING THE ROUND FROM THE BLACKSTONE.

TYPES OF TAWAAAF :-

There are many types of tawaaf around the Ka’bah.

TAWAAAF AL-IFAADAH :-

Tawaaf al-ifaadah during Hajj, which is also called tawaaf al-ziyaarah (tawaaf of visiting). It takes place after the standing in ‘Arafah, on the day of al-Adha or after it. It is one of the pillars or essential parts of the Hajj.

TAWAAAF AL-QUDOOM :-

Tawaaf al-qudoom (tawaaf of arrival) for Hajj. This is done by the pilgrim who has entered ihraam for Hajj and by the pilgrim who is doing Qiraan, i.e., joining ‘Umrah and Hajj, when he reaches the Ka’bah. It is one of the obligatory duties or Sunnahs of Hajj – there is a difference of scholarly opinion.

TAWAAF OF UMRAH :-

The tawaaf of ‘Umrah. It is one of the pillars or essential parts of ‘Umrah, which is not valid without it.

TAWAAF AL-WADAA (THE FAREWELL TAWAAF) :-

Tawaaf al-wadaa’ (the farewell tawaaf), which is done after completing the actions of Hajj and when one has decided to leave Makkah al-Mukarramah. It is obligatory, according to the more correct of the two scholarly opinions, for all pilgrims except women who are menstruating or bleeding following childbirth, and the one who fails to do it must sacrifice an animal of the type that is valid as an udhiyah.

TAWAAF IN FULFILMENT OF VOW :-

Tawaaf in fulfilment of a vow made by one who vowed to circumambulate the Ka’bah. It is obligatory because of the vow.
Each of these tawaafs must include seven circuits, after which the person offers two rak’ahs behind Maqaam Ibraaheem, if possible; if he cannot do that then he may offer the prayer in any other part of the mosque.

TAWAAF IS OF SEVEN CIRCUITS :-

Tawaaf for ‘umrah or Hajj must be seven circuits, and it is not acceptable to do less than that, because Allaah has enjoined tawaaf and said:

“And circumambulate the Ancient House (the Ka‘bah at Makkah).

(SURAH AL-HAJJ 22 VERSE 29)

AL-NAWAWI SAID :-

The condition of tawaaf is that it must be seven circuits, each one starting and ending at the Black Stone. If one step of the seven is omitted, then his tawaaf does not count, whether he stays in Makkah or has departed and returned to his homeland, and it cannot be rectified by offering a sacrifice or anything else.

(AL-MAJMOO 8/21)

jabir b. Abdullah (Allah be pleased with them) reported that when Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) proceeded to Mecca, he came to it (the Black Stone). he kissed it. and moved to his right. and moved quickly in three circuits, and walked in four circuits.

SAHIH MUSLIM (Book #007, Hadith #2806)

Narrated jabir :-

He touched the pillar and (made seven circuits) running three of them and walking four. And then going to the Station of Ibrahim, he recited:” And adopt the Station of Ibrahim as a place of prayer.” And this Station was between him and the House. My father said (and I do not know whether he had made a mention of it but that was from Allah’s Apostle [May peace be upon him] that he recited in two rak’ahs:” say: He is Allah One,” and say:” Say: 0 unbelievers.” He then returned to the pillar (Hajar Aswad) and kissed it.

SAHIH MUSLIM (Book #007, Hadith #2803)

NOTE :-

IT IS ONLY PRESCRIBED TO UNCOVER THE RIGHT SHOULDER AND WALK QUICKLY WITH SHORT STEPS (RAML) IN THE TAWAAF OF ‘UMRAH, AND IN THE TAWAAF OF ARRIVAL (TAWAAF AL-QUDOOM) FOR THOSE WHO ARE DOING IFRAAD AND QIRAAN HAJJ. IN OTHER TAWAAFS THESE ACTIONS ARE NOT PRESCRIBED, SO IN TAWAAF AL-IFAADAH THERE IS NO RAML AND NO UNCOVERING THE SHOULDER, WHETHER YOU DID TAWAAF IN IHRAAM OR NOT. WOMEN DONOT HAVE TO WALK QUICKLY IN THE FIRST THREE CIRCUITS OF ANY TAWAAF,SHE WILL NOT UNCOVER HER SHOULDER.THIS RULING APPLIES TO MEN ONLY.

Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas:

The Prophet (p.b.u.h) did not walk quickly (ramal) in the seven rounds of the last circumambulation (Tawaf al-Ifadah).

ABU DAWOOD (Book 10, Hadith 1996)

AL-NAWAWI SAID :-

“Uncovering the right shoulder goes along with raml. When it is mustahabb [recommended] to walk quickly (raml) it is also prescribed to uncover the right shoulder, and when it is not recommended to walk quickly, it is not prescribed to uncover the shoulder either. When the scholars differed, that had to do with both uncovering the shoulder and walking quickly [i.e., the two actions are not separated]. There is no difference of opinion on this matter

(AL-MAJMOO 8/43)

He also said: But raml and uncovering the shoulder are separate in one case, which is that uncovering the shoulder is Sunnah in all seven circuits, but raml is only Sunnah in the first three circuits, and one should walk (normally) in the last four.

(AL-MAJMOO 8/20)

IBN QUDAAMAH SAID :-

It is mustahabb to walk quickly and uncover the right shoulder in the Tawaaf of ‘Umrah and in the Tawaaf of arrival. Then he said: It is not Sunnah to walk quickly or to uncover the right shoulder in tawaaf except in the cases we have mentioned, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and his companions only walked quickly and uncovered their shoulders at those times.

(AL-MUGHNI 5/221)

SECONDLY :-

Doing the seven circuits without interruption is a condition of tawaaf being valid according to the Maalikis and Hanbalis; if there is a lengthy interruption between any two circuits, then tawaaf must be repeated.

If tawaaf is interrupted by a lengthy interval or because they forgot or because of some excuse, then it is not acceptable, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did the circuits of tawaaf one after another, and he said: “Learn from me your rituals of Hajj.”

(KASHSHAAF AL-QINAA 2/483)
(MAWAAHIB AL-JALEEL 3/75)

IS TAHAARAH (WUDOO-ABLUTION) A PREREQUISITE FOR TAWAAF ???

The majority of scholars are of the view that tahaarah (being pure, i.e., having wudoo’) is an essential condition of tawaaf, like prayer, being valid. Just as prayer is not valid unless one has done wudoo’, so too tawaaf is not valid without wudoo’.

IBN QUDAAMAH SAID :-

Tahaarah (being pure, having wudoo’) is a condition of tawaaf being valid. This is the well-known view of Ahmad, and it is the view of Maalik and al-Shaafa’i.

The majority of scholars quote several pieces of evidence to support this view, such as the following:

Ibn Abbas narrated that :

the Prophet said: “Tawaf around the House is similar to Salat except that you talk during it. So whoever talks in it, then let him not say but good.” (Hasan)

SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Vol. 2, Book 4, Hadith 960)

Abdullah bin Umar said:

“Speak little when you are perfoming Tawaf for you are in a state of Salah”. (Sahih Mawquf)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 4, Hadith 2926)

(FATAAWA AL-SHAYKH IBN BAAZ 17/213-214)

With regard to the actions of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and his doing tawaaf in a state of tahaarah (purity), they said: This does not indicate that it is obligatory, rather it only indicates that it is mustahabb (recommended), because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did that, but it is not reported that he commanded his companions to do that.

With regard to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) saying to ‘Aa’ishah: “Do what the pilgrims do, but do not circumambulate the House until you are pure [i.e., until your period ends],” the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) told her not to do tawaaf because she was menstruating, and the menstruating women is forbidden to enter the mosque.

SHAYKH AL-ISLAM IBN TAYMIYAH SAID :-

Those who say that it is obligatory to have wudoo’ in order to do tawaaf have no proof at all, because no one narrated, with either a saheeh isnaad or a da’eef one, that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) enjoined having wudoo’ in order to do tawaaf. It should be noted that very many people did Hajj with him, and he did ‘Umrah numerous times and the people did ‘Umrah with him. If wudoo’ were obligatory for tawaaf, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) would have pointed that out to everyone, and if he had stated that, then the Muslims would have transmitted it from him and would not have been negligent concerning that. But it is proven in al-Saheeh that when he did tawaaf he did wudoo’. This on its own does not indicate that it is obligatory, for he used to do wudoo’ for each prayer and he said: “I do not like to remember Allaah except in a state of purity.”

(MAJMOO AL-FATAAWA 21/273)

NOTE :-

Even though this view –that tahaarah is not an essential condition for tawaaf – has some strength and the evidence may be interpreted in this manner, people should not start tawaaf without being in a state of purity, because it is undoubtedly better to do tawaaf in a state of purity; that is more on the safe side and by doing that one will avoid going against the view of the majority of scholars.

A MAN STARTED TO DO TAWAAF,THEN HE PASSED WIND,DOES HE HAVE TO STOP HIS TAWAAF OR SHOULD HE CONTINUE ?

Shaykh Bin Baaz replied: If a person passes wind or urine or semen, or he touches his private part, etc. during tawaaf, then he should stop his tawaaf, as (he is required to do if any of these things happen) in the case of prayer. He should go and purify himself, then start tawaaf again. This is the correct view; there is a difference of scholarly opinion concerning this matter, but this is the correct view concerning both prayer and tawaaf, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “If one of you breaks wind silently during prayer, let him go and do wudoo’ then repeat the prayer.” Narrated by Abu Dawood and classed as saheeh by Ibn Khuzaymah. Tawaaf comes under the same heading as prayer in general…

(MAJMOO FATAAWA AL-SHAYKH IBN BAAZ 17/216-217)

ONE SHOULD PRAY TWO RAKAH SUNNAH AT MAQAAM IBRAHEEM :-

It was narrated that Jabir said:

“When the Messenger of Allah came to Makkah he entered the Masjid and touched the Stone, then he moved to his right and walked rapidly for three (rounds) and then walked (at a regular pace) for four. Then he came to the Maqam and said: ‘And take you (people) the Maqam (place) of Ibrahim as a place of prayer and prayed two Rakahs with the Maqam between him and the House. Then he came to the House after praying those two Rakahs and touched the Stone, then he went out to As-Safa.” (Sahih) Chpater 150. In How Many Rounds Should Be Quick?

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 4, Hadith 2942)
SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 4, Hadith 2965)

Jabir narrated:

“When the Prophet arrived in Makkah, he entered the Masjid and touched the (Black) Stone, then went to his right and performed Raml (walking quickly) for three (circuits) and walking for four. Then he came to the Maqam and said: ‘And take you (people) the Maqam (place) of Ibrahim as a place of prayer.’ Then he performed two Rak’ah while the Maqam was between him and the House. Then he came to the (Black) Stone after the two Rak’ah to touch it, then he left to As-Safa – I think – he said: Indeed As-Safa and Al-Marwah are among the symbols of Allah.” (Sahih)

SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Vol. 2, Book 4, Hadith 856)

RECITATION IN TWO RAKAH SUNNAH :-

One Should Recite In first rakah Say: He is Allah One (SURAH IKHLAS 112),Second rakah say:” Say: 0 unbelievers.” (SURAH KAAFIROON 109).

Narrated jabir :-

He touched the pillar and (made seven circuits) running three of them and walking four. And then going to the Station of Ibrahim, he recited:” And adopt the Station of Ibrahim as a place of prayer.” And this Station was between him and the House. My father said (and I do not know whether he had made a mention of it but that was from Allah’s Apostle [May peace be upon him] that he recited in two rak’ahs:” say: He is Allah One,” and say:” Say: 0 unbelievers.” He then returned to the pillar (Hajar Aswad) and kissed it.

SAHIH MUSLIM (Book #007, Hadith #2803)

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

12) DESCRIPTION OF SAAII :-

CONDITION OF PROCEEDING BETWEEN SAFA & MARAWAH ARE NINE :-

1) BEING A MUSLIM.

2) BEING SANE.

3) INTENTION.

4) MAKING THE ROUND CONTINOUSLY..

5) WALKING BY THE ONE WHO IS ABLE..

6) COMPLETING SEVEN ROUND.

7) COVERING THE DISTANCE BETWEEN THE TWO MOUNTS.

8) MAKING IT AFTER A CORRECT TAWAAF.

9) BEGINNING AT THE AS-SAFA AND COMPLETING AT AL-MARWAH.

DUA AT AL-SAFA & AL MARAWAH :-

HE SHOULD GO OUT TO THE MAS’AA (PLACE FOR SAAI) AND WHEN HE COMES NEAR TO AL-SAFA,HE SHOULD RECITE.


Jabir narrated:

“When the Prophet arrived in Makkah, he performed seven (circuits) of Tawaf around the House. Then he came to the Maqam and said: And take you (people) the Maqam (place) of Ibrahim as a place of prayer. Then he prayed behind the Maqam. Then he came to the (Black) Stone to touch it. Then he said: ‘We begin with what Allah began with.’ So he began at As-Safa and recited: “”’Indeed As-Safa and Al-Marwah are among the Symbols of Allah.” (SURAH BAQARAH 2 VERSE 158) (Sahih)

SUNAN TIRMIDHI (Vol. 2, Book 4, Hadith 862)

It was narrated that Jabir said:

“The Messenger of Allah circumambulated the House seven times, walking rapidly in three circuits and walking (at a normal pace)b in three. Then he stood at the Maqam (place) of Ibrahim as a place of prayer, raising his voice so that the people could hear. Then he went and touched the Black Stone and went (to perform Sai) and said: ‘We will start with that with which Allah started.’ So he started with As-Safa, climbing up until he could see the House and he said three times: ”La ilaha illallah, Wahdahu la sharika lah,lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu, yuhyi wa yumitu, wa huwaala kulli shayin qadir (There is none worthy of worship except Allah alone with no partner or associate, His is the dominion and to Him be praise, He gives life and death, and He has power over all things).’ Then exclaimed Allah’s greatness and praised Him, then he supplicated as much as was decreed for him. Then he came down walking, until he reached level ground at the bottom of the valley. Then he hastened until the ground began to rise. Then he walked until he came to Al-Marwah and climbed up it, and when he could see the house he said: ‘La ilaha illallah, Wahdahu la sharika lah, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu, yuhyi wa yumitu, wa huwaala kulli shayin qadir (There is none worthy of worship except Allah alone with no partner or associate, His is the dominion and to Him be praise, He gives life and death, and He has power over all things).’ He said that three times, then he remembered Allah, and glorified and praised Him, then he supplicated there for as long as Allah willed. And he did that until he had finished Sai.” (Sahih)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 4, Hadith 2977)
SAHIH MUSLIM (Book #007, Hadith #2803)

When he reaches the green marker he should run as quickly as he can without disturbing anyone, because

Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did saa’i between al-Safa and al-Marwah, and he said, “The river bed is not crossed except with vigour.

IBN MAJAH (HADITH 2419).

The river bed [it was a dried river bed in the time of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)] is the area between the two green markers that stand there now.When he reaches the second green marker, he should walk normally until he reaches al-Marwah.

RULING ON DOING SAAII WITHOUT WUDOO :-

It is not essential to have wudoo’ for saa’i. This is the view of the four Imams, Abu Haneefah, Maalik, al-Shaafa’i and Ahmad. Indeed It is permissible for menstruating women to perform saa’i between al-Safa and al-Marwah, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) only told menstruating women not to do tawaaf.

It was narrated that ‘Aishah said:

“We set out with no intention other than Hajj. And when we were in Sarif, my menses came. The Messenger of Allah entered upon me while I was weeping, and he said: ‘Have your menses come?’ I said; ‘Yes.’ He said; ‘That is something that Allah, the Mightily and Sublime, has decreed for the daughters of Adam. Do everything that the pilgrim in Ihram does, but do not circumambulate the House.” (Sahih)

SUNAN NASEEI (Vol. 3, Book 4, Hadith 2742)

Narrated Al-Qasim:

`Aisha said, “We set out with the sole intention of performing Hajj and when we reached Sarif, (a place six miles from Mecca) I got my menses. Allah’s Apostle came to me while I was weeping. He said ‘What is the matter with you? Have you got your menses?’ I replied, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘This is a thing which Allah has ordained for the daughters of Adam. So do what all the pilgrims do with the exception of the Tawaf (Circumambulation) round the Ka`ba.” `Aisha added, “Allah’s Apostle sacrificed cows on behalf of his wives.”

SAHIH BUKHARI (Vol. 1, Book 6, Hadith 293)

(AL-MUGHNI 5/246)

SHAYKH IBN UTHAYMEEN SAID :-

If a person does saa’i when he does not have wudoo’, or if a woman does saa’i when she is menstruating, then this is valid, but it is better to do saa’i in a state of tahaarah.

(AL-SHARH AL-MUMTI 7/310-311)

NOTE :-

Tawaaf al-wadaa’ (the farewell tawaaf), which is done after completing the actions of Hajj and when one has decided to leave Makkah al-Mukarramah. It is obligatory, according to the more correct of the two scholarly opinions, for all pilgrims except women who are menstruating or bleeding following childbirth, and the one who fails to do it must sacrifice an animal of the type that is valid as an udhiyah.


Narrated Ibn `Abbas:

The people were ordered to perform the Tawaf of the Ka`ba (Tawaf-al-Wada`) as the lastly thing, before leaving (Mecca), except the menstruating women who were excused.

SAHIH BUKHARI (Vol. 2, Book 26, Hadith 810)

It is not necessary to go to Madina for the acceptance of Hajj and there is no such condition but Haji should go to Madina also, and should not be deprived of ziyarath of Madina Taiba and its Ajar-o-Sawab(reward), people who think that Hajj will not be accepted, without going to Madina is unproven by Qur’an and sunnah.

7) Relieve himself from any kind of injustice which he may have inflicted upon others.

8) Secure the needs of his family members whom he leaves home.

9) Accompany the knowledgeable and righteous Muslims and stay away from the mubtadi’ah (innovators in deen).

10) Perform salah on time and as prescribed during the journey and in the hajj period.

11) Safeguard his tongue from backbiting, arguing, complaining, etc.

12) Keep his beard and not shave it for hajj or for any other reason, as this is prohibited.

13) Remember that it is unlawful for men to wear gold (rings included).
