Medicine for the Soul

Subject: HAJJ (PILGRIMAGE)         

Allah, The Most Exalted says:

"And pilgrimage to the House is incumbent upon men for the sake of Allah, upon everyone who is able to undertake the journey to it" (3:96 Qur'an)


The Noble Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) is reported to have said:

"Whoever performs the Hajj and commits no lustful act during it nor disobeys Allah (in any other way) shall return from it as pure and sinless as he was at the time of his birth." (Hadith-Bukhari & Muslim)

Note:   Hajj (Pilgrimage) is obligatory upon every understanding, mature Muslim who can afford to undertake the journey. (i.e. one who possesses wealth, which is more than one's need, and enough to travel to Makkah Mukarramah and back)
