{And [due] to Allah from the people is a pilgrimage to the House—for whoever is able to find thereto a way. But whoever disbelieves—then indeed, Allah is free from need of the worlds.} [Quran 3: 97]


“The pilgrims of the Hajj and ‘Umrah are the guests of Allah; and when they supplicate Him, He answers their supplication; and when they ask for His forgiveness, He forgives them.” [Ibn Majah]


Performing Hajj often wipes out poverty. Ibn Mas‘ood and Ibn ‘Umar, may Allah be pleased with them, narrated that the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘layhi wa sallam, said: “Perform Hajj and ‘Umrah successively for they remove poverty and sins just as fire removes the impurities of iron.” [At-Tirmithi and Ibn Majah] it is obligatory on each Muslim who is physically and financially able to hasten to perform the Hajj before he will be unable to do so. The Prophet said: “Whoever intends to perform the Hajj should hasten to it; for one could get sick, his mount could be lost, or he could face poverty and need.” [Saheeh Al-Jaami’]

 There is a reward equal to the reward of Hajj. It was narrated on the authority of Anas, may Allah be pleased with him, that the Prophet said: “Whoever performs the Fajr (dawn prayer) in the congregation, then sits to remember Allah until the sun rises, and then performs a two-rak‘ah (unit of prayer) prayer, his reward will be equal to that of Hajj and ‘Umrah, completely, completely, completely.” [At-Tirmithi; Al-Albaani: authentic]

Abu Hurairah relates that the Messenger of Allah said: There are no days more loved by Allah for you to worship Him therein than days of Dhul Hijjah. Fasting any day during the period is equivalent to fasting for one year. Offering Sala’tul-Taha’jud (late-night prayer) during one of its night is like doing so on the night of Majesty(Layla’tul-Qadr). In another tradition, the Prophet was reported to have related that Dhul Hijjah, being a sacred month confers sanctity of blood, properties and honour of Muslims on one another.
