Hajj and Umrah

Common Health problems during Hajj To fully appreciate the physical dimensions of the Hajj let us consider the Hajj as a dynamic system. On arrival you are going to be wearing the Ihram clothes and once in Makkah you have to go for Tawaf or the circumambulation the Ka'bah seven times and then perform the Sa'i; the act of jogging seven times between the hills of Safa and Marwah, a distance of 500 meters, i.e., a total distance of 3.5 kilometers. On Arafat day all Hujjaj must assemble on the Mount of Mercy from morning until sunset.

Haj is the 5th pillar of Islam. The Prophet Mohammed Sallallâhu Alaihi Wasallam did not introduce the performance of Haj. It can be said to be as old as the Ka’aba itself. Haj is a combination of both, physical and monetary ibâdat [devotion].

Haj was made compulsory in the 3rd year after the Hijrat. Allah says: "Haj of the Bait (Ka’aba) is compulsory on the people for the sake of Allah on those who have the means" (3:10)

Dear Haji General advice for those who intend to perform Hajj

  • Actions are judged according to the intention. Therefore one must sincerely intend only to perform Haj to fulfil the command of Allah Ta’ala and earn His pleasure. Let there be absolutely no worldly motive in one’s Haj. To also have some worldly motive together with the intention to perform Haj is like mixing milk with water.

The Prophet (saw) 's Farewell Hajj When Allah had purified the Ka'bah from desecration and the idols were destroyed, the Muslims yearned to perform hajj again. The mission of the Messenger (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) of Allah was also nearing completion and it was necessary for him to bid farewell to his loving Companions.

Hajj: its virtues and benefits Praise be to Allaah and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allaah.

This is a brief discussion of Hajj – its virtues, benefits and a little about its rulings.
