Ahadith on Hajj


‘Aishah (RA) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “There is no day on which Allah sets free more slaves from Hell than He does on the Day of ‘Arafah.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Ibn ‘Abbas (RA) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, “(The performance of) ‘Umrah during Ramadan is equal to Hajj (pilgrimage).” Or said, “Equal to the performance of Hajj with me.” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Ibn ‘Abbas (RA) reported: A woman came to the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) and said, “Allah’s obligation upon His slaves has become obligatory on my father in his old age. My father is very old and incapable of riding. May I perform Hajj on his behalf?” He (PBUH) said, “Yes.” [Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi]

Laqit bin ‘Amir (RA) reported: I came to the Prophet (PBUH) and said: “My father is a very old man and does not have strength to perform Hajj (pilgrimage) or ‘Umrah or to undertake the journey.” The Prophet (PBUH) said, “Perform Hajj and ‘Umrah on behalf of your father.” [Al-Bukhari].

Ibn ‘Abbas (RA) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) came across a caravan at Ar-Rauha’ and asked who the people in the caravan were. They replied that they were Muslims. They asked: “Who are you?” He (PBUH) said, “I am the Messenger of Allah.” Then a woman lifted up a boy to him and asked: “Would this child be credited with having performed the Hajj (pilgrimage)?” Whereupon he (PBUH) said, “Yes, and you will have a reward.” [Muslim]

Ibn ‘Abbas (RA) reported: Ukaz, Mijannah and Dhul-Majaz were markets during the pre-Islamic period. The Companions disliked trading there till the following Ayat of the Noble Qur’an were revealed: “There is no sin on you if you seek the Bounty of your Rubb (during pilgrimage by trading)…” (2:198) [Al-Bukhari]
