Advice for those about to perform Hajj
These are some pieces of advice and useful points which I offer to
our brothers about to make Hajj.
Firstly. The pilgrim must fear his lord by obedience
to Him, and must be very careful not to fall into that which Allaah has forbidden as Allaah ta'la says:
<<For Hajj are the months well-known. If
anyone undertaken that duty therin, let there be no obscenity nor wrangling in the Hajj.>>[Surat-al-Baqarah ayah
And the prophet said: "He who performs Hajj and does not speak obscenely
or commit evil then he returns from his sins just as the day his mother gave birth to him", and if he did so then his Hajj
would be accepted and Rasoolullaah said: "The accepted Hajj - there is no less a reward for it than Paradise. So he must
be aware of what many are affected by because of their ignorance or misguidance:
(A) Directing any form of worship to other than Allaah (shirk). And
we have seen many of the people falling into shirk - like praying fro the removal of distress or aid from the Prophets and
the pious instead of from Allaah alone, and their taking oath by them in veneration of them - so by their actions they completely
nullify their Hajj. As Allaah ta'ala says:(Soorat-ul-Zumar ayah 65)
<<If you were to join gods with Allaah,
truly fruitless will be you work (in life).>>
(B) Some men shaving off their beards - as it is a sinful deed - and
doing it involves four seprate sins - as I have explained in 'The Original'.
(C) The wearing of gold rings by men - and this is Haraam - even more
so those which are known as wedding-rings as that includes the further sin of imitating the Christians.
Secondly. Everyone who intends to make Hajj and has not
brought the sacrificial animal (Hadee) with him then he should intend to perform Hajj of Tamattu' [see the Glossary]
- as the Prophet ordered his companions to do in the end, and as he became angry when some did not immediately carry out this
order to change the intention from Hajj to an 'Umrah and he said: "I have entered the `Umarah into the Hajj until the Day of Resurrection", and when some of the Companions asked whether
he had done that only for that year or forever, the Prophet joined his fingers together and said: "I have entered the 'Umrah
into the Hajj until the Day of Resurrection, not just for a time, rather forever. And because of this he ordered
Fatimah and also all his wives - may Allah be pleased with them all - to leave the state of iHraam after finishing the 'Umrah,
and therefore Ibn 'Abaas used to say: Whomsoever makes tawaaf of the House - then he has left iHraam - the Sunnah of your Prophet - even if you are
averse to it. So everyone who has not brought the sacrificial animal with him, should call out that he is going
to make 'Umrah - in the three months of Hajj, and he who has declared his intention to do Hajj Mufrad (Hajj on its own) or
Hajj Qaarin then hears of the Prophet to change it 'Umrah - then he should quickly obey even after reaching Makkah and Sa'ee
between Safaa and Marwah - then he should leave the state of iHraam - then declare the intention for Hajj on the Day of Tarwiyyah
- the 8th of Dhul Hijjah.
<<O you who believe! Give you response
to Allaah and His Messenger, when He calls you to that which will give you life...>>[Soorat-ul-Anfal ayah 24].
Thirdly. You must not leave off staying the night at
Mina on the night before 'Arafah as it is obligatory (waajib) - the Prophet did it and ordered it with his saying: "Take from
me your rites of pilgrimage." And you must also stay the night at Muzdalifah until you pray Fajr prayer, and if you miss this
staying then you must at least pray Fajr there - as that is even more obligatory - rather it is one of the rukn (pillar) of
Hajj according to the most correct saying according to the scholars - except upon the woman and the weak - for it has been
allowed for them to leave after half of the night has passed.
Fourthly. And be very careful not to walk directly in
front of anyone praying in the Haraam mosque, not to speak of other mosques and prying places as the Prophet said: "If the
one walking between the hands of one praying knew what were upon him then it would be better for him to stand still for forty
(...) than that he should walk between his hands. [Maalik, al-Bukhaaree, Muslim, the 4 Sunan of Abu Juhaim]. And this is a
general text covering everyone walking in front, and everyone praying - and there is no authentic Hadith to make any exception
for the one doing so in the Haraam Masjid - and you should pray therein like any other place towards a sutrah - according
to the general nature of the Hadith regarding that - and there are also some narrations from the Companions particularly about
the Masjid-ul-Haraam - which I have mentioned in 'The Original'.
Fifthly. The people of knowledge should teach the pilgrims
the rites of Hajj and its commands according to the Book and the Sunnah whenever meeting with them, and that should not stop
them from calling to Tawheed which is the essence of Islaam and was the reason for sending of the Prophets, and the sending
down of revealed books, as most of the people whom we have met - even some of those who are supposed to be seeking knowledge
- we have found to be in complete ignorance of the real meaning of oblivious to the necessity of the return of the Muslims
- upon their differing madhabs (schools of thoughts) and various parties - to unification and joining ranks upon the basis
of the Book and the Sunnah, - in belief (Aqeedah) and Regulations (AHkaam) and transactions, and behaviour, and politics and
economic affairs and all other aspects of life. And they must remember that any voice raised or any movement made to reform
which is based upon any foundation other than this firm splitting and weakening of the Muslims - and will increase their shamefulness
and humiliation - and the present state of affairs is the greatest proof of that - and Allaah is the One Whose help is sought.
And there is nothing wrong with debating in the best way - when required,
as the kind of argumentation that is forbidden in Hajj is useless argument which is also forbidden outside Hajj, just like
the eveil-doing that is forbidden in Hajj - for that is not the debating which is commanded in Allaah ta'ala's saying [Soorat-un-Nahi
<<Invite (all) to the way of your Lord
with wisdom and beautiful preaching, and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious...>>
However, it should be noticed that if it appears that there is no
benefit in the discussion because of the other persons blindly sticking to his madhab or own opinion - and if he were to continue
then there is fear of going into that which is not permissible - then it is better to leave that argument with him as the
Prophet said: "I am a claimant for a house in the outskirts of Paradise for one who leaves off arguing even if he is in the
And the one who is inviting to the truth should always make things
easy for the people in general and the pilgrims in particular as this making things easy is one of the principles of the kind
of Sharee'ah - as is known - as long as there is no text against the point, for when there is a specific text then it is not
permissible to make things easy by opinion. And this is the just and middle way which it is binding for every caller to the
truth to adopt. And there is no need to take any notice to the people's objecting after that and saying: He is too strict,
he is too lenient.
And there are various actions which are permissible for the
pilgrims which they have become used to avoiding due to some people's fatawa going against the aforementioned principle. So
I decided to make note of those:
1. Bathing, without need to because of (e.g.) wet dreams (iHtilaam),
even if it involves rubbing the head - as it is authentically reported from the Prophet in Bukhaaree and Muslim and others
from the narration of Aboo Ayyoob (RH).
2. Scratching the head, even if some hair falls out as shown by the
preceding hadith of Aboo Ayyoob - and it is the saying of Shaikhul-Islaam Taimiyya (RH). 3. Cupping/Blood-letting (iHtijaam)
even if some of the hair is shaved off in the place required, as the Prophet had it done on the center of his head while in
iHraam - and that is not possible without shaving some fo the hair. And this is also the saying of Ibn Taymiyyah - and the
Hanbali scholars also - however, they say that he must make a sacrifice to make up for it, and they have no proof of this.
Rather that is rejected by the Prophet's cupping - and had he made a sacrifice because of having done that then the narrator
would have reported that - and his not having done so shows that it did not happen - so the correct position is the saying
of Ibn Taymiyyah (RH).
4. Smelling sweet smelling plants and pulling off broken nails - and
there is narrations about that mentioned in 'The Original'.
5. Taking the shade of a tent, or upheld garment - as this is proven
from the Prophet, and in the same way using the camel-litter in the old days or an umbrella or car - even sitting inside -
these days. And making it obligatory to make up for that with a sacrifice is a harshness for which there is no proof, rather
there is no difference between seeking the shade of a tent which is proven from the Sunnah and seeking shade from the camel-litter
- and its like, and this is a narration from Imaam AHmad as occurs in 'Manaar us-Sabeel' (1/2460). And what some people do
regarding removing the roofs of their cars is entering into religion something that the Lord of the worlds has not allowed.
6. Wearing a belt around the izaar and tying it when necessary, and
wearing rings - as occurs in some narrations. And like it is wearing a watch or spectacles and money-pouch around the neck.
All of those things fall under the aforementioned principle - furthermore
some of them also being supported by hadith from the Prophet, or by narrations from the Companions - and Allaah ta'ala says:
[Soorat-ul-Baqarah ayah 185].
<<He (Allah) intends every facility for
you, He does not want to put you into difficulties.>>
And all praise is for Allaah Lord of the worlds.
Assuming Iharaam (IHraam is the state entered
into at the Meeqat in which certain acts and types of clothing are forbidden).
1. It is mustaHabb for anyone going for Hajj or 'Umrah to take a ghusl
(bath) for iHraam - even if a woman is in her period or in after-birth confinement.
2. Then the men may wear whatever clothes he wishes that are not made
in the shape of the body - and these clothes are called by the fuqahaa (religious scholars) "ghair al mukheet (unstitched)".
So he wears a ridaa (upper garment) and izaar (lower garment) or whatever, and sandals or any footwear that does not cover
3. He does not wear a hat or an 'imaamah (turban) or anything like
that which fits onto and covers the head - this referring only to men. As for the women - she does not remove anything of
the clothes that are prescribed for her in the Shari'ah, except that she should not tie on the niqaab (face-veil)
or the burqa' or the lithaam (lower face cover, up to the eyes) or handkerchief and she should not wear gloves.
And the Prophet said : "The muHrim should not wear the shirt, or the 'imaamah, or the hooded cloak, or trousers, or garment touched by wars
(dyes with saffron) or saffron; or leather socks - unless he cannot find sandals) then in that case he may wear leather socks),"
and the Prophet said: "The woman muHrim should not affix a face veil and should not wear gloves. And it is
permissible to for the women to cover her face - even if it touches her face according to the correct opinion - however, she
should not tie it on, as Ibn Taymiyyah says.
4. He may put on the clothing of iHraam before the meeqat even in
his own house as the Prophet and his Companions did. And this makes it easier for those making Hajj by aeroplane for whom
it is not possible to put on iHramm at the meeqat - so it is permissible for them to embark on the plane in iHraam, but they
do not make the intention of iHramm until very shortly before the meeqat - in order that they do not go past the meeqat without
5. He may use body_oil and perfume himself with any perfume he please
which was has odor but not color, however, women use that which has color not but no odor - and all this to be before he makes
intention of iHraam at the meeqat - after that is Haraam.
Ihraam and Niyya (intention)
6. So when he comes t the meeqat it becomes waajib (obligatory) for
him to assume iHraam - and the mere wish and intention to perform Hajj is not sufficient as that has been with him since leaving
his own land - rather he must perform by word and action what will cause him to be muhrim. So when he recites `talbiyyah'
intending to enter into iHraam then his iHraam is concluded - as agreed upon by the scholars.
7. And he does not say anything more than the talbiyyah such as their
saying: "O Allah, I intend to make Hajj or `Umrah so make it easy for me and accept it from me..." as none of this is reported
from the Prophet - just like speaking with the intention for wudoo and salaat and Fasting - all of this being from the newly
invented matters and is well-known the Prophet said: "...for every newly invented matter is an innovation, and every innovation
is a going astray and every going astray is in Hell_Fire." [Tirmidhee - saHeeh]
8. The meeqaats (places for assuming iHraam) are five: Dhul Hulaifah,
Al-Juhfah, Qarn-ul manaazil, Yalamlam and Dhaatu `Irq. They are for those who live there and those who pass by them intending
Hajj or 'Umrah. And he whose house is nearer than them to Makkah then he makes iHraam from his house, the people of Makkah
making iHraam from Makkah.
DHUL HULAIFAH is the place for the people of Madinah and is a village
six or seven miles away - and it is the furthest meeqaat from Makkah - being ten riding stations away - or less depending
on the route, there being many routes from there to Makkah as Ibn Taimiyyah points out. And it is called ((waadi ul `Aqeeq,))
and its masjid is called ((Masjid-ush-shajarah)) (mosque of the Tree), and there is spring there called `the spring of `Ali'
by the ignorant masses - believing that `Ali : killed a jinn there - and that is a lie.
And AL-JUHFAH is a village between Madinah and Makkah - about three
travel stages away. It is the meeqat for the people of Madinah if they come by this route. Ibn Taimiyyah said: "It is the
meeqaat for those who make Hajj from the direction of the west, like the people of Shaam (Greater Syria) and Egypt and the
rest of the West. And it is today ruined and deserted, therefore the people now go into iHraam before it in the place called
And Qarn UL MANAAZIL - which is also called "Qarn-uth-Tha'aalib" is
near Makkah - being a day and night's journey away - and is the meeqaat for the people of Najd.
And YALAMLAM is a place two nights distant from Makkah, thirty miles
away and is the meeqaat for the people of Yemen.
And DHAATU TRQ is a place out in the desert, marking the border between
Najd and Tihaamah, being forty-two miles from Makkah. It is the meeqaat for the people of Iraq.
The Prophet's order to perform Hajj UT-TAMATTU
9. So when he wishes to make iHraam and is making Hajj-ul-Qirran,
having brought the sacrificial animal with him, he should say: labbaikallaahumma bi-hajjah wa umrah
(Here I am O Allah making Hajj and `Umraah). So if he hasn't
brought the sacrificial animal - and that is better - then he says talbiyyah for `Umrah only and that he must do, saying labbaikallaahumma
So if he has already made talbiyyah for Hajj only, he cancels that
and makes it into an `Umrah - as the Prophet ordered that and also said: "I have entered the Hajj until the Day of Judgment"
and he joined his fingers together (as in the Hadith that has preceded).
He also said: "O family of Muhammad - whoever from you makes Hajj,
then let him say talbiyyah of an 'Umrah in Hajj" and this is At-Tamattu' of `Umrah with Hajj.
10. And if he wishes when making talbiyyah he may state a condition
to Allah fearing that which may prevent him (from completion of the Hajj) whether illness or fear - saying as the Prophet
taught: allaahumma mahillee haithu habastanee
(O Allah my place is wherever you prevent me).
So if he does that and is then prevented or becomes ill - then he may leave iHraam of the Hajj or `Umrah - and there is no
recompensatory sacrifice due upon him and he does not have to do the Hajj again, except and unless it was his first Hajj -
then he has to repeat it.
11. There is no special prayer for iHraam, however if it is time for
prayer before iHraam, then he should pray and then put on iHraam following the example of the Rasoolullah who put on iHraam
after prying zuhr.
Prayer in waadee ul'aqeeq
12. However he whose meeqaat is Dhul Hulaifah - then it is mustahabb
for him to pray there, not for iHraam, but because of the place and its being blessed. As al-Bukhaari has narrated from Umar
- may Allah be pleased with him - who said : "I heard the Rasoolullah say in waadi ul 'Aqeeq:" "Someone came to me this night
from my Lord and said: Pray in this blessed valley, and say `Umrah with Hajj" And Ibn 'Umar narrates from the
Prophet: "...that he saw, when alighting for sleep at the end of the night in Dhul Hulaifah in the center of the valley, one
saying to him: you are in the blessed stony ground."
Talbiyyah and raising the voice
13. then he said he should stand facing the Qiblah,
and say talbiyyah for `Umrah or Hajj as has preceded, and say: allaahumma haadhihi hajjah, laariyaa'a feehaa wa laa sum'ah
(O Allah this is a Hajj, there being no ostentation in
it or hypocrisy).
14. And he should say the talbiyyah of the Prophet:
(i) labbaikallaahumma labbaika labbaika laa shareeka laka labbaika-innal
hamda wan na'mata laka wal mulka-la shareeka laka
(Here I am O Allah, here I am, there is no partner for
You, here I am, Verily all praise for You, and every bounty is from You, and all dominion is Yours - You have no partner.)
(ii) And he also said: labbaika ilaahal haqq
(Here I am O God of Truth.)
15. And it is better to stick to the talbiyyah of the Prophet, even
though it is permissible to increase upon it - as the Prophet approved of those who did so, saying: "labbaika dhal ma'aarij,
labbaika dhal fawaadil".
(of the Ways of Ascent, Here I am Owner of Excellence.)
And Ibn `Umar used to also say: "labbaika wa sa'daika wal khairu biyadaika war-raghabaa'u ilaika wal `amalu"
(Here I am and blessed by You, and all good is in Your
Hands, and desire and action are directed towards You.)
16. And the one saying the talbiyyah is ORDERED to raise his voice
with it, as the Prophet said: "Jibreel came to me and ordered me to ordered my companions and those with me to raise their
voices with talbiyyah." and he said: "the best Hajj is shouting out and spilling blood.
Therefore the companions of the Prophet when they entered into iHraam,
by the time they reached `arRauhaa' their voices had tired out.
And the Prophet said: "It is as if I am looking at Musa, upon whom
be peace, descending from the mountain pass raising his voice with talbiyyah..."
17. And women, as regards the talbiyyah, are like men - as the two
preceding hadith are general - so they should raise their voices as long as their is no fear of fitnah. And `Aa'ishah used
to raise her voice until the men could hear her. Abu `Atiyyah said: "I heard `Aa'ishah saying: Verily I know how was the talbiyyah
of Rasoolullah, then I heard her after that saying: Labbaikallaahumma labbaika..."
And Qaasim ibn Muhammad said: Mu'aawiyyah went out at night and heard
the voice of someone making talbiyyah, so he said: `Who is that?" It was said: "`Aa'ishah, Mother of the Believers, making
`Umrah from at-Tan'eem." So that was mentioned to `Aa'ishah so she said: "If he had asked me I would have told him."
18. And he continually repeats the talbiyyah as it is "from the signs
of Hajj" and because of the Prophet's saying: There is no one who makes talbiyyah except that whatever is on
his right and left - trees and stones also make talbiyyah until the earth resounds from here and here - meaning - on his right
Especially whenever he ascends a high place or descends a valley -
according to the hadith which has preceded: "It is as if I am looking at Musa - upon whom be peace - coming down from the
mountain pass....loudly reciting talbiyyah" and in the other hadith: "It is if I am looking towards him when he descends in
the valley reciting talbiyyah".
19. And he may also recite along with it "La ilaaha illallaah" and
talbiyyah according to the saying of Ibn Mas'ood may Allaah be pleased with him - "I went out Rasoolullah and he did not leave
off the talbiyyah until he stoned Jamrat-ul' Aqabah - except when he mixed it with reciting talbiyyah? or "La ilaaha illallaah".
20. So when he reaches the haram of Makkah and sees the houses of
Makkah he leaves off the talbiyyah to concentrate on the following actions:
Taking Ghusl for entring Makkah
21. And whoever can talk a ghusl (bath) before entering Makkah then
he should do so. And he should enter Makkah in the day following the example of Rasoolullah.
22. And he should enter from the upper part of Makkah which today
has Bab ul Mi'laah as the Prophet entered from the upper pass (Kadaa') above the graveyard, and he entered
the masjid from Bab Bani Shaibah as that was the nearest way to the Black Stone (Al-Hajrul-Aswad).
23. And he is allowed to enter by any path as the Prophet said: All
of the mountain passes of Makkah are a pathway and place for slaughter and in another hadith, All of Makkah is a pathway.
He enters from here and leaves from here.
24. So if you enter the masjid do not forget to enter by the right
foot, and say:
allallhumma salli `alaa muhammadin wa sallim -
allaahumma aftah lee abwaaba rahmatika or a'oodhu billaahil `azeemi wa biwajhihil kareem wa sultaanihil qadeemi minash
25. And when he sees the Ka'bah he raises his hands if he wants to
- as it is established from Ibn `Abbaas.(935))
26. And there is no du'aa established from the Prophet at this point.
So he may make du'aa with Whatever he can if he wishes with the du'aa which is established from `Umar:
allaahumma anta salaamu wa minkas salaamu fahayyinaa
Tawaaf of Quadoom (arrival)
27. Then he should go straight to the Black Stone and facing it make
takbeer. And he may say `Bismillah' before it - as it is authentically reported from Ibn `Umar, although not from the Prophet.
28. Then he touches the Black Stone with his hand and kisses it also,
and makes sajda upon it also - as Rasoolullah did that, and `Umar, and Ibn `Abbaas.
29. If he is not able to kiss it then he touches it with his hand
then kisses his hand.
30. Then if he cannot touch it he should make a sign towards it with
31. And he does that in every circuit.
32. And he should not push and crowd to get to it according to the
Prophet's saying: O`Umar, you are a strong man, so do not harm the weak, and when you wish to touch it, then when it become
free then touch it, and if not then face it and say takbeer.
33. And there is in touching the Black Stone a great excellence as
the Prophet said: "Allaah will raise up the Stone on the Day of Judgement, and will have two eyes with which it will see,
and a tongue which it talks with, and it will give witness in favor of everyone who touched it in truth." And
he said: "Touching the Black Stone and the Yemeni corner removes sins." "The Black Stone is from Paradise,
and it used to be whiter that snow, but the sins of the idolaters turned it black."
34. Then he should begin making tawaaf around the Ka'bah - it being
to his left - and he goes around past the Stone seven times - from the Stone to the Stone being one, wearing the iHraam under
his right armpit and over the left (called al-idtibaa') throughout the tawaaf. And walking quickly and with
boldness (ramal - a strong walk in which the shoulders are thrust forwards) in the first three, from the Stone to the Stone
- then he walks normally in the rest.
35. And he touches the Yemeni corner with his hand each time he passes
and does not kiss it, and if he is not able to touch it then he should not make any sign towards it with his hand at all.
36. And he should say between the two corners: "O Allaah gives us
good in this life, and good in the Hereafter and save us from the Punishment of the Fire."
Rabbanaa aatinaa fid-dunyaa hasanatan wa feel aakhirati hasanatan
wa qinaa 'adhaaban naar [Soorat-ul-Baqarah ayah 201]
(Our Lord! Give us good in this world and good in the Hereafter,
and defend us from the torment of the Fire.)
37. And he does not touch the two shaami corners at all following
the sunnah of the Prophet.
Iltizaam Between The Corner And The Door
38. And he may cling to the place between the corner and the Door
- placing his chest and face and forearms upon this place.
39. And there is no particular dhikr for tawaaf - so he may read Qur'an
or say any dhikr he pleases, according to the Prophet's saying : Tawaaf around the House is prayer, except that Allah has
allowed speech in it, so he who speaks then let him not say except, good things and in a narration : so let him limit his
talk in it."
40. And it is forbidden for a naked person or a mentruating woman
to make tawaaf of the House, as he said : A naked person may not make tawaaf of the House." And his saying
to 'Aa'ishah when she came to make 'Umrah in the final Hajj : Do as anyone making Hajj does, except do not make tawaaf of
the House (and do not pray) until you become clean.
41. So when he finished the seventh round he covers his right shoulder
and moves to the Place of Ibrahim and recites:
Wattakhidhoo min-maqaami ibraaheema musalla [Soorat-ul-Baqarah ayah
(And take ye the Station of Abraham as a place of prayer.)
42. And he places the Maqaami Ibraheem (Place of Abraham) between
himself and the Ka'bah and then prays two rak'ahs.
43. And he recites therein Surat-ul-Kaafiroon and Surat-Qul Huwallaahu
44. And he should not walk between the hands of any praying person
there, nor allow anyone to walk in front of him while he is praying - as the ahadith forbidding that are general - and there
is no established exception for the Haram Masjid, let alone the rest of Mukkah.
45. Then after praying he goes to Zamzam and drinks thereof,and pours
some of the water onto his head, as he said : "Zamzam water is for what it drunk for" and he said "It is blessed
and it is a food and a cure for illness" and he said : The best water upon the face of the earth is Zamzam
water, in it is nourishment and a cure from illness.
46. Then he returned to the Black Stone, says takbeer and touches
it - as before.
Sa'ee Between Safaa And Marwah
47. The he goes off for sa'ee between Safaa and Marwah (two small
hills). And when he reaches the foot of Safaa he reads Allaah ta'ala's saying:
Innas-safaa wal marwata min sha'aa'irillaahi faman hajjal baita 'awi`tamara
falaa janaaha 'alaihi an yattawwafa bihimaa wa man tatawwa'a khiran fa'innallaaha shaakirun 'aleemun [Soorat-ul-Baqarah ayah
(Behold! Safa and Marwa are among the Symbols of Allah.
So if those who visit the House in the Season or at other times should compass them round, it is no sin in them, and if any
one obeys his own impulse to good, be sure that Allaah is He Who recognises and knows.)
and says: Nabda'u bimaa bada'allaahu bihi
(We begin with what Allaah began with.)
48. Then he begins with as-Safaa - climbing upon it until he can see
49. Then he faces the Ka'bah - and makes tauheed of Allaah and takbeer,
Allaahu akbar allaahu akbar allaahu akbar - laa illaaha
illallahu wahdau laa shareekalahu - lahul mul ku wa lahul hamdu - yuheeu wa yumeetu wa huwa 'alaa kulli shai'in qadeer - laa
ilaaha illallahu wahdahu laa shareekalahu - anjaza wa'dahu wa nasara ' abdahu wa hazamal ahzaaba wahdahu
Saying that three times and making du'aa after each time.
50. Then he descends for sa'ee between Safaa and Marwah, as Rasoolullah
said : Make sa'ee as Allah has prescribed sa'ee for you.
51. So he walks till he reaches the green sign-post - on the right
and left - then runs quickly till he reaches the next sign-post. And this place was in the time of the Prophet a dried river
bed covered with small stones, and the Prophet said: (The river bed is not crossed except with vigour.) Then
he walks up to Marwah and ascends it and does upon it as he did upon as-Safaa - facing the Qiblah, saying takbeer and tahleel
and making du'aa and that forms one complete circuit.
52. Then he returns till he ascends as-Safaa - walking in the place
for walking, and running in the place for running - and that is a second circuit.
53. Then he returns to Marwah - and so on till he completes seven
circuits finishing upon Marwah.
54. And it is permissible for him to go between Safaa and Marwah While
riding. However the Prophet preferred to walk.
55. And if he makes du'aa in sa'ee, saying : Rabbighfir warham innaka
antal a'azzul akram
(O lord forgive and have mercy,verily You are the Most
Mighty, Most Noble) then there is no harm as it is authentically reported from a group of the Salaf.
56. Then when he finishes from the seventh circuit upon al-Marwah
he shortens the hair of his head thus ending the 'Umrah - and everything that became forbidden to him upon
entering iHraam now becomes permissible again - and he remains in the state of hill (being out of iHraam) until Yaum ut-Tarwiyyah
57. And he who made iHraam not intending to make 'Umrah before the
Hajj - and not having brought the hadi (sacrificial animal) from outside sacred precincts then should also leave the state
of iHraam in obedience to the Prophet's order and in avoidance of his anger. Those, however, who have bought the sacrificial
animal with them remain in iHraam and do not leave that state until after the stoning on the Day of Sacrifice (Yaum-un-Nahr)
Ihlaal (Calling Aloud With Tal-Biyyah) For Hajj
On Yaum Ut-Tarwiyyah
58. So when it is Yaum ut-Tarwiyyah and that is the 8th of Dhul Hijjah
- he puts on iHraam and calls out with the talbiyyah of Hajj, and does as he did when assuming iHraam for 'Umrah which he
did from the meeqaat - as regards bathing and putting on perfume, and wearing the ridaa and izaar (upper and lower garments)
and reciting talbiyyah - which he does not cease to do until he has stoned Jamrat ul-Aqaha (on 10th Dhul-Hijjah).
59. And he assumes iHraam form the place he is resident in - the people
resident in Makkah doing so from Makkah.
60. Then he goes off to Minaa and prays there the Zuhr prayer and
remains there, spending the night there and praying the rest of the five daily prayers - shortening them (to two ra'kahs)
but without combining them.
Proceeding To 'Arafah
61. So after the sun rises on the Day of 'Arafah (10th Dhul-Hijjah)
- he moves off towards 'Arafah (a large plain to the south-east of Makkah), while reciting talbiyyah of takbeer - as both
of these were practised by the Companions of the Prophet while making Hajj with him - and he did not critize either (those
reciting tal-biyyah of those reciting takbeer.) 
62. Then he stops at Namirah  - and it is a place
near to 'Arafah but not forming part of it - and he remains there until noon.
63. So When the sun passes its zenith he moves to 'Uranah and settles
there, and it is next to 'Arafah - and here the Imaam should give an appropriate Khutbah to the people.
64. Then he prays with the people Zuhr and 'Asr shortening and combining
them in the time of the Zuhr prayer.
65. And one adhaan is given and two iqaamahs.
66. And he does not pray anything between the two prayers.
67. And he who is not able to pray along with the Imaam - then he
prays them in the same way on his own - or with those in similar situation around him.
Standing In 'Arafah
68. Then he goes off to 'Arafah and if able stands upon the rocks
beneath the Mount of Mercy (Jabal ur-Rahmah) and if not then all of 'Arafah is place of standing.
69. And he stands facing the Qiblah, raising his hands making du'aa
and reciting talbiyyah.
70. And he recites much 'La ilaha illallaah' as it is the best du'aa
on the Day of 'Arafah as the Prophet said: The best thing that I and the Prophets have said on the evening of 'Arafah is Laa
ilaha illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu lahul mulk wa lahul hamdu wa huwa 'alaa kulli shay'in qadeer.
71. And if he adds in the talbiyyah occasionally (all good is the
good of the Hereafter) then that is permissible.
Innamaal Khairu Khairul Aakhirati
72. And it is sunnah for the one standing in 'Arafah not to fast that
73. And he remains in that state, remembering Allaah reciting talbiyyah,
making du'aa as he wishes - hoping from Allaah that He will make him one of those whom He boasts of (those whom He frees from
Fire) to the Angels as occurs in the hadith :"There is no day on which Allaah frees more of His slaves from Fire than the
Day of 'Arafah, and He verily draws near then boasts of them before the angles, saying :'What do they seek?' "
and in another hadith : "Verily Allaah boasts of the people of 'Arafah before the people of heaven (the angels), saying :
'Look to my servants who have come to Me dishevelled and dusty.'" and he remains in that state until the sun
74. So when the sun has set he leaves 'Arafah for Muzdalifah - going
with calmness and tranquility, not jostling or pushing the people with himself or his riding beast or his vehicle, rather
whenever he finds room then he goes faster.
75. And when reaching Muzdalifah he gives adhaan and iqaamah then
prays the three ra'kahs of Maghrib, then gives iqaamah and prays 'Ishaa - shortening it - and joining the two prayers.
76. And if he separates the two prayers for some necessity then there
is no harm in that.
77. And he does not pray anything between them or after 'Ishaa.
78. Then he sleeps until Fajr.
79. Then when the dawn first appears he prays Fajr in the first part
of its time with adhaan and iqaamah.
Fajr Prayer In Muzdalifah
80. And all of the pilgrims pray Fajr prayer in Muzdalifah (a place
between 'Arafah and Minaa) except the weak and the women - it being permissible for them to leave after half of the night
has passed for fear of the crush of people.
81. Then he comes to the Mash'ar al-Haraam (a small mountain in Muzdalifah)
and climbs upon it and faces the Qiblah - then recites tahweed,takbeer, tahleel - and declares Allaah's Unity and makes du'aa
until the sky becomes very bright.
82. And all Muzdalifah is a place of standing - so wherever he stands
then it is permissible.
83. Then he leaves for Minaa before the sun rises, calmly while reciting
84. So when he comes to the river valley of Mu-Hassir he hurries if
possible - and it is a part of Minaa.
85. Then he takes the middle road which takes him to the Jamrat ul
The Stoning (Ar-Ramee)
86. And he picks up in Minaa stones with which he intends to do the
stoning of Jamrat-ul-'Aqabah - and it is the last of the Jamraat and the nearest one to Makkah.
87. And he faces the Pillar (Jamrah), having Makkah to his left and
Minaa to his right.
88. Then he stones it with seven small stones, like the Stones of
Khadhf - which are slightly longer than the chick-pea.
89. And he recites takbeer while throwing each stone.
90. And he ceases reciting talbiyyah when throwing the last stone.
91. And he he does not perform this stoning until after sunrise, even
the women or weak who were allowed to leave Muzdalifah after half the night, as this is one thing and the stoning is something
92. And he may perform this stoning after noon even up to the night
if he finds difficulty in performing this stoning before noon as is established in the hadith.
93. So when he has stoned the Jamrah everything becomes lawful for
him again except women, even if he has not sacrificed or shaved his head - so he may wear his clothes and use perfume.
94. However he should perform Tawaaf-ul-Ifaada on the same day (before
Maghrib) if he wishes to continue in his state of having left iHraam - otherwise, if he has not made Tawaaf before the evening
(before Maghrib) then he returns to the state of iHraam as he was before the stoning - so he should remove his clothes and
put on iHraam according to the Prophet's saying: "Verily on this day has been allowed for you, when you have stoned the Jamrah,
that was prohibited for you except women (sexual intercourse). Verily on this day everything that you were prohibited from
(by iHraam) has been allowed for you, when you have stoned the Jamrah, except the women (sexual intercourse) - so if evening
comes upon you before you have made Tawaaf of this House then you revert to the state of iHraam as you were before stoning
the Jamrah - until you make the Tawaaf. 
95. Then he comes to the place of sacrifice in Minna and sacrifices
his animal - and that is the Sunnah.
96. However, it is permisible for him to slaughter in any other part
of Minna or Makkah as the Prophet said: I have slaughtered here and all of Minna is a place for salughtering, and all of the
mountain pass approaches, so slaughter on your place of stopping.
97. And the Sunnah is to do the dhabh (slaughter by a horizontal cut
through the throat) or Nahr (slaughter by a vertical movement of the spear to the lower part of the throat) with own hand
if possible, and if not, then to depute someone else to do it.
98. And he should make the animal face the Qiblah when slaughtering,
making it lie down on its left side and putting his right foot upon its right side.
99. As for the camel then he should slaughter it by means of Nahr..while
it is standing having its left leg tied, standing on its others with its face towards the Qiblah.
100. And he says when slaughtering: Bismillaahi Wallaahu Akbar
Al-Laahumma Inna Hadha Minka Wa Laka Al Lahumma Taqabbal Minnee
(In the name of Allah and Allah is greater. O Allah this
is from You and for You. O Allah accept it from me.)
101. And the time for slaughter is the four days of 'Eid - Yaum-un-Nahr,
and that is called 'Yaum ul-Jajj-ul-Akbar' (Day of the greatest Hajj) and the three days of Tashreeq, as the
Prophet said: "Allthe days of Tashreeq are for sacrifice.
102. And he may eat from the meat of his sacrificial animal and take
some back with him to his land as the Prophet did.
103. And he should give some it to feed the poor and the needy as
Allah ta'ala says:
(The sacrificial camels We have made for you as among the
Symbols from Allah: in them is (much) good for you: then pronounce the name of Allah over them as they line up (for sacrifice):
when they are down on their side (after slaughter), eat ye thereof, and feed such as (beg not you) live in contentment and
such as beg with due humility.)[Soorat-ul-Hajj ayah 36]
104. And seven people may share in one camel or cow.
105. And he who cannot afford a sacrificial animal should fast three
days in Hajj and seven when he returns to his family.
106. And he may fast the three days of Tashreeq according to the hadith
of 'Aa'ishah and Ibn 'Umar - may Allah be pleased with them - who said: "No permission was given for us to fast the days of
Tashreeq except for those who could not afford a sacrificial animal.
107. Then he shaves all of his hair off or shortens it. - and the
first is better as the Prophet said: "O Allah have mercy on those who save their heads. They (the people) said 'And those
who shorten their O Rasoolullah.' He said: O Allah have mercy on those who save their heads. They said: 'And those who shorten
their hair O Rasoolullah' He added on the fourth time: And those who shorten their hair"
108. And the Sunnah is for the barber to begin with the right side
of the head as occurs in the hadith of Anas.
109. And shaving the hair is just the for men and not for the women
- they have to shorten only as the Prophet said: "There is no shaving of the hair for women, verily upon women is shortening
of the hair.." So she should together her hair and shorten it by the length of a finger-joint.
110. And it is Sunnah for the Imaam to give a khutbah on the Day of
Sacrifice in Minaa between the Jamaraat in the forenoon to teach the people to
rites of Hajj.
Tawaaf Ul Ifaadah
111. The he goes off that day to the House and makes Tawaaf - seven
times around - as has preceeded in the Tawaaf of arrival - except that he does not wear iHraam under his right shoulder -
nor does he perform raml in this Tawaaf.
112. And it is from the Sunnah to pray two ra'kahs behind the Station
of Ibrahim - as Az-Zuhree said, and Ibn 'Umar did so, and said: "For every seven times around
there are two ra'kahs."
113. Then he walks and runs between Safaa and Marwah as before - except
for one doing Hajj of Qiraan or Ifraad - the first sa'ee being enough for them.
114. And after this tawaaf everything again becomes lawful for him
that became unlawful due to iHraam - even the woman (sexual intercourse).
115. And he prays Zuhr at Makkah, and Ibn 'Umar says: At Minaa.
116. And he comes to Zamzam and drinks from it.
Staying Overnight At Minaa
117. Then he returns to Minaa and remians there for the days of Tashreeq
and their nights.
118. And he stones the three Jamaraat with seven small stones in each
of those days, after noon, as has preceeded concerning the stoning on the Day of Sacrifice.
119. He begins with the first Jamrah, which is the nearest to Masjid
- al-Khaif, and after stoning it he moves onward and stands facing the Qiblah for a long while making du'aa while raising
120. Then he comes to the second Jamarah and stones it in the same
way, then he moves to the left and stands for a long while facing the Qiblah making du'aa while raising his hands.
121. The he comes to the third Jamarah and it is Jamrat al-Aqabah
- and he stones it in the same way - standing so that Ka'bah is to his left and Minaa to his right and does not stand there
(making du'aa) afterwards.
122. Then on the second day he repeats this stoning and on the third
123. An if he leaves after stoning on the second day not remaining
for the third day's stoning, then that is permissible as Allaah ta'ala says:
(Celebrate the praises of Allah during the Appointed Days,
but if anyone hastens to leave in two days, there is no blame on him, and if anyone stays on, these is no blame on him if
his aim is to do right,) However remaining for the third day's stoning is better as it is the Sunnah.
124. And the Sunnah is to do the previous actions of Hajj in order:
the stoning, then slaughter, then shaving the head, then Tawaaf of Ifaadah, the Sa'ee for the one doing Hajj at-Tamattu';
however if he brings something forward in the order or delays something in the order (doing things out of order) then that
is permissible as the Prophet said: "There is no harm, there is no harm."
125. And regarding stoning, the following is allowed to those who
have a valid excuse:
(a) The permission not to have to spend the night in Minaa according to the hadith of Ibn 'Umar: "Al
'Abbaas sought permission of Rasoolullah to spend the night of Minaa in Makkah as he was responsible for supplying Zamzam
water there, so he gave him the permission."
(b) To combine two days' stoning in one day, according to
the hadith of 'Aasim ibn 'Adiyy who said: "Rasoolullah made concession for the camel drivers in Bairootah that they could
stone on the Day of Sacrifice, the combine two days' stoning after that - performing it in one of the two days."
To perform the stoning at night as the Prophet said: The shephered may stone at night, then look after his flock in the daytime.
126. And it is lawful for him to visit the Ka'bah and make Tawaaf
during each of the nights of Minaa as the Prophet did so.
127. And the pilgrim during the Days of Minaa must take care to pray
the five daily prayers with the congregation - and it is best to pray the Masjid of Khaif if he is able to, as the Prophet
said: Seventy Prophets have prayed in the Masjid of Khaif.
128. So after completing the stoning on the second day or third day
of the days of Tashreeq - then he has completed the rites of Hajj and therefore returns to Makkah - and remans there for as
long as Allaah has written for him to remain - and he should take care to perform the prayer with the congregation - especially
in the Masjid-ul-Haraam, and a single prayer in the Masjid-ul-Haraam is better than a hundred thousand prayers in other mosques.
129. And he should perform much of prayer and Tawaaf at any time he
pleases of the day or night as the Prophet said about the two corners - the Black Stone and Yemeni corner: "Touching them
takes away sins, and he who performs Tawaaf does not raise or lower his foot (while walking) except that Allaah writes it
for him as a good deed, and wipes off bad deed for him, and writes for him an extra rank and whoever does it even times round
[check Sharh of at-Tirmidhee] it is as if he had freed a slave." And the Prophet said: ""O tribe of 'Abd Manaaf! Do not
prevent anyone from making Tawaaf of this house or from prayer at any hour of the day or night he pleases."
The Farewell Tawaaf (Tawaaf Ul Wadaa)
130. So when he has finished all that he has to do and has decided
to travel then he has to make a farewell Tawaaf of the house, as Ibn 'Abbas narrated: 'The people used to head off in every
direction ans so the Prophet said: "None of you should depart until he makes as his last act Tawaaf of the House."
131. And the menstruating woman was at first ordered to wait until
she became clean of it in order to make Tawaaf ul Wadaa' then it was permitted for her to leave without waiting
according to the hadith of Ibn 'Abbas: "That the Prophet gave concession for the menstruating women that she should depart
before (Farewell) Tawaaf as long as she had made Tawaaf of Ifaadah."
132. And he may carry away with him whatever he can of Zamzam water
because of the blessing therein, as: "Rasoolullah used to carry it with him in water skins and containers - and he used to
pour (it) upon the sick and give it to them to drink." Further: "Before Makkah was conquered he used to send
the message to Suhail ibn 'Amr: that he should bring Zamzam water for us and not leave it - so he would send to him two large
133. So when he finishes the Tawaaf he leaves the mosque like the
rest of the people - not walking backwards - and he leaves putting out his left foot first, saying: Allaahuma
salli 'alla muhammadin wa sallim - allaahumma innee 'as'aluka min fadhlika
(O Allaah send blessings and peace upon Muhammad. O Allaah
I ask You for Your bounty.)
