Hajj Simple Guide

 Hajj Simple Guide

Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam. The yearly flood of pilgrims from the remotest places of Islam has been a remarkable means of spiritual renewal for distant communities, which are thus brought closer to the manifest center of Islam. Historically, the pilgrimage has been a means of knitting together the many races and nations that make the Muslim community, and there is no other event on earth that can compare with it.

INTENTION OF HAJJ

There are three ways of performing the Hajj Haj at-Tamatt’u (Interrupted) This means entering into Ahram for the Umrah aking it off after performing the Umrah, and hen entering into Ahram again for the Haij People who come from other countries usually perform Haj at-Tamatt’u. Hajj al-Qiran (Combined) This means entering into Ahram for both the Umrah and he Haj at the same time, not taking off the Ahram until the day of sacrifice at Mina. Hajj al-Ifrad (Single) This means enter ng into Ahram only for the Hajj

The ibaadah of Haij has the exclusive status of being obligatory only once a lifetime, for those who can afford it. It is, therefore, important that the sincerity of intention must be given due regard. In other lbaadaat and devotions, it is possible to gradually develop devotion, whereas the time available for Haji is usually limited. The need for devotion is vital because a Fard Haj can never be repeated. During your journey to Haij, a concerted effort towards developing- ing this all-important sincerity must be made nthetual the s of slim it. The person who intends to perform Hajj must do so with the express intention of attaining Allah’s pleasure, and fulfill ones fard, and also to diligently carry out the commands of Allah and His Messenger (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam). The rewards for deeds depend greatly on the intention that is formed. Sincerity is extremely important. It is important that Hajj should be kept free of ulterior and worldly motives. There are three types of adulterations that are possible in the performance of Hajj.

 

To ruin the Haj even before departing from home by having a desire to be called a Haji, and using haraam or doubtful earnings for this ibaadah. To engage in improper acts while performing Haji, such as committing sins during the time that one is engaged in the performance of Haj, to have arguments, not to make Taubah (repentance) complete the Haj and then to indulge in such deeds that defile the Haj, e.g. to neglect the obligatory salaat, to indulge in sin, etc. Perform the Hajj with all its requisites, for anything done in keeping with this is well accomplished. While in Hajj do not do things to display to others. On returning from Hajj do not emphasize the difficulties which may have been endured, instead turn your attention towards the eternal benefits and rewards you will receive. One must understand that the difficulties endured during this sacred journey are insignificant compared to the high position one will receive in Paradise. When departing from home, the only intention in the heart should be the search for Allah’s Pleasure. All other evil intentions, as for example to show people or to wish to be called a Haji or the intention of having an enjoyable tour, should be completely removed from the mind.

CONDITIONS OF HAJJ

  1. One must be a Muslim. 2. One must be an adult. 3. One must be sane. 4. A woman must travel with her husband or a Mahram (a man she cannot marry at all). 5. The pilgrim should have sufficient money for his journey as well as for his dependants whom he leaves at home Hajj is obligatory upon those who can make their way” to Makkah. That is to say that the requirement is not absolute but incumbent upon those whose health and means permit it, and who in doing so, do not compromise their responsibilities towards their families Hajj relates to the life of tests and trials lived by Prophet Hazrat Ibrahim (alaihissalam) and his son Prophet Hazrat Ismail (Alaihissalam) in the vicinity of Makkah.

INTENTION OF HAJJ

The most important factor of Haij is the intention to perform the Hajj only to please Allah and fulfill His command. It should not be mixed up with the slightest worldly interest.

write a book on how to perform Hajj

Performing the Hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca, is a once-in-a-lifetime religious obligation for Muslims who are physically and financially able to make the journey. Here is a general outline of how to perform the Hajj:

  1. Make sure you meet the requirements for performing the Hajj. You must be a Muslim who is physically and financially able to make the journey.
  2. Obtain a visa to enter Saudi Arabia. You will need a valid passport and a Hajj visa to enter the country.
  3. Make travel arrangements. You can book a Hajj package through a travel agency, or you can make your own travel arrangements.
  4. Prepare for the physical demands of the journey. The Hajj involves a lot of walking and standing for long periods of time, so it is important to be in good physical shape.
  5. Learn about the rituals of the Hajj. Familiarize yourself with the specific actions and prayers that are performed during the Hajj, such as the Tawaf (circumambulation of the Kaaba), the Sa’i (walking between the hills of Safa and Marwa), and the stoning of the pillars in Mina.
  6. Dress appropriately. During the Hajj, men are required to wear simple, unstitched white garments, and women should wear modest clothing that covers the entire body.
