Thumbs up What is happening these days؟

Hajj is an annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia in order to perform rituals based on those conducted by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) during his last visit to the city. As the fifth pillar of Islam, Muslims who are in good physical and financial standing have a religious duty to perform Hajj at least once in their lifetime.

Hajj occurs in the 12th month of the Islamic lunar calendar, called Dhul Hijjah,

What time of year does Hajj take place?

“There are no days on which righteous deeds are more beloved to Allah than these ten days” (Bukhari)

The month of Dhul Hijjah is one of the holiest periods of the Islamic year. During this month, Muslims perform Qurbani and Hajj and witness the day of Arafah and Eid ul Adha.

In Dhul Hijjah, between the eighth and 13th days of the month, the annual Hajj pilgrimage is performed. It perfectly falls into the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah, which are better than all the other days of the year.

While performing the rituals of Hajj, Muslims retrace the footsteps of Prophet Ibrahim (AS), Hajar (RA) and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), commemorating their sacrifices and seeking ways to deepen their devotion to Allah SWT.

Who is excluded from Hajj?

Hajj in Islam is an obligation that comes with pre-conditions and prerequisites. Therefore, it is important for Muslims to know all its aspects, in order to ensure that it will be accepted by Allah SWT once performed.

Hajj is obligatory for Muslims upon the following conditions:

A Muslim should be over puberty and physically able to make the journey.
A Muslim should be able to afford the journey financially.
A Muslim woman should be accompanied by a Mahram man (her husband or a male relative, whom she cannot marry, like her brother).

According to these conditions, some people are exempt from Hajj. This includes Muslims who are too old or weak and unable endure the physical hardships of the journey. However, another Muslim, who has already fulfilled their own obligation of Hajj, can perform Hajj on their behalf.

If you are sick or physically incapacitated with risk of your sickness worsening by travelling then you are temporarily exempt from performing Hajj. It once again becomes obligatory when your agility is restored.

Those who don’t have sufficient money to afford the journey are also exempt from Hajj. This includes those who are in debt. A Muslim must be able to provide for the following expenses needed for Hajj in order to embark on the pilgrimage

The Prophet ﷺ said:

None shall ever greet me without God returning my spirit to me, so that I may answer his greeting.9

Intention of Visiting the Prophet ﷺ

It is highly recommended that your intention for this blessed trip should be to visit the Holy Prophet ﷺ. You should also have the intention of drawing closer to Allah through this virtuous action and you should also make the intention of visiting Masjid Nabawi and performing salah therein.

After you have made your intention, increase your Salawat upon the Prophet ﷺ. You should do as much Salawat en route to Madinah and recite it with full concentration.

As a member of the Prophet’s ﷺ Ummah, you should develop a yearning and desire within yourself to visit him and express your love for him.

Etiquette to observe during visiting the grave:

There are three graves side by side and when you approach towards the graves, the first one is the grave of Prophet (pbuh) followed by the graves of Abu-Bakr and Umar (May Allah be pleased with them). The actual graves cannot be seen, they are covered by golden metallic gates.
when you come near to the Prophet’s grave, stand respectfully and give salutation of peace in low voice by saying:

“As-salamu ‘alykum yaa Rasulallah wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu.” (May the peace, mercy and blessings of Allah be upon you, O Messenger of Allah!)
Then move about two steps to the right, that is the grave of Abu-Bakr(May Allah be pleased with him) and extend your greetings to him by saying:
“Assalamu ‘alykum yaa Abu-Bakr.” (Peace be upon you, Oh Abu-Bakr)
Now move another two steps and extend your greetings to Umar (May Allah be pleased with him) by saying:

“Assalamu ‘alykum yaa Umar.” (Peace be upon you, Oh Umar)
It is not permissible for anyone to wipe his hands over the trellis or kiss it; or cry and ask the Prophet (pbuh) to fulfil your desire or relieve from distress or illness or any other wish. In fact this type of act is gravely sinful and regarded as associating partners with Allah and worship of other than Him.
