Book of Hajj


After entering into Islam by accepting faith (Iman) there are four worship (Ibadat) that become obligatory. These are (1) The Salaah (2) Sayam (Fasting) (3) Zakaah (Charity) and (4) Hajj (Pilgrimage). What is Hajj ? Hajj is performed by wearing the Ehram and entering the inner limits of the Holy Kaba (also known as Haram Sharif) the Pilgrim (Hajji) must go (seven times) round the Holy Kaba, known as Tawaf (meaning going round and round) and close by there is a place where one has to run and another place where one has to stop for some time and sacrifice is offered and the hair is shaved (for men only) and other things which will be mentioned in detail later, this is Hajj. The Virtues and importance of Hajj ? Hajj is obligatory and one who does not belive it as an obligatory is a non-believer (Kafir). It is obligatory once in the life time. It is a major sin not to perform the Hajj, to the extent there is fear that one may die as a non-believer and by performing Hajj there is a lot of reward and blessings in performing this obligation. The beloved Prophet Peace and Blessing Upon Him has said, all the sins that one had before performing Hajj, Hajj will get rid of all these sins and he said, Hajj for the weak and for the women is Jihad (Holy War) and he said, the pilgrim will be forgiven and he said, whoever the pilgrim makes supplication (Dua) for him too and he said, on every step one will get Ten Million rewards written in the book of good deeds and he said, the pilgrimage that is accepted the only reward is Paradise and he said, whoever travelled for Hajj and died on the way will enter Paradise without accounting and until the Day of Resurrection will be rewarded with the reward of performing Hajj and there are many rewards, however, we have only listed a few. As soon as a person becomes eligible for Hajj, it becomes obligatory to undertake this pilgrimage at the first available opportunity meaning if this year than this year and to delay is a major sin and if delayed for few years than one will be a sinner and giving witness will not be accepted, however, when the Hajj is performed it will current (Ada) and not out of it?s time (Qaza) . The time for Hajj and the conditions - The time for Hajj is from the month of Shawwal (10th month of Hijri calender) till the 10th of Dhil-Hajj (the 12th the last month of Hijri calendar). Before Shawwal and after 10th Dhil-Hajj the Hajj can not be performned, however, the Ehram can be worn before this, however, this is makrooh . There are eight conditions for Hajj, when all are fulfilled Hajj becomes obligtory (Fardh). These conditions are: (1) To be a Muslim. (2) If residing in Darul Harb (a city or place which has not had an Islamic ruling) and to have the knowledge of the obligations of religion. (3) To be an adult. (pass the age of pubity). (4) To be sane. (meaning it is not obligatory on one who is mental). (5) To be independent (not a slave). (6) To be in good health to perform Hajj (meaning Hajj is not obligatory on a handicapped person, a blind and one whose legs have been amputated, or one who is so old and is unable to sit on a transport by themselves, for them Hajj is not obigatory. Rule: If a person was capable in all respects and met the criteria, however, did not perform Hajj and now became handicapped etc. and can not perform Hajj, then the Hajj is still obligatory. If the Hajj can not be performed it should be performned by another person on his behalf . (7) One should possess enough resources for Hajj, this means leaving the neccessity, one has enough resources that one can travel to Makkah and return and in between can afford the expence for oneself and one who is with him. Leave sufficient money for the household expenses in his absence after meeting all expenses such as travel, transport, stay at the Holy Places etc; this means the money left at home should be suffcient for the family left behind, those dependent on him for their essential necessities, known as Hajjat-e-Asliyah. What are the necessities ? This means the living accommodation, clothing, servants, riding animals (transport), vocational implements, cooking and eating material, debt (borrowings or dues such as loan) . One who is dependant upon the business run by themselves, if one can leave such quantity of financial security which would not only meet the demands of the family during his absence, however, would also enable one to resume business with that money, without disturbing the normal affairs of the family. In this case, Hajj shall be obligatory, and similarly if a KASHTAKAR then after meeting all essential expenses, beginning with his departure from and arrival back home, one will have sufficient amount kept at home to bear the expenses of the implements purchase of seeds, (machinery) etc. on return; then Hajj shall be obligatory and similarly????? . (8) Time: meaning all the conditions are fulfilled within the time of Hajj when one reaches Makkah. Who are the Mehram? Rule: For a female travelling to Makkah, if the distance is of three days or more then she be accompanied by her husband or a Mehram whether the women is young or old and the husband or the Mehram who she can travel with, for him to be sane, adult, not be a fasiq-wrong doer (commits sins in the open) Rule: If a women went without her husband or without a Mehram she will be sinful, however, if she performs Hajj the Hajj will count meaning the obligation will be fulfilled. PROCEDURE OF HAJJ When near the Meeeqat perform ablution (Wudhu) and bath (Ghusl), apply perfume (only for males) and wear the Ehram and offer two rakats of Nafil with the intention (Niyah) of Ehram and after this, recite this supplication: TRANSLATION:- O Allah!

After this recite Lab'baik loudly, the Lab'baik is: TRANSLATION:- After reciting Lab'baik, recite Durood Shareef and read this Dua: TRANSLATION:- O Allah!

When reaching the border of Makkah then lower ones head and with respect keeping ones gaze low with love and affectionate and if possible walk with bear feet making Dua and saying Labaik. When you see Makkah stop and pray the following Dua: TRANSLATION:- O Allah!

When one begins to enter Makkah pray the following Dua: TRANSLATION:- O Allah! You are my Lord sustainer and I am Your slave. After going a little further ahead when one reaches Mud?aa stop here and after waiting a little here, pray with utmost humility and solemnity for the welfare and prosperity for yourself, ones Kith and kin, friends and all the Muslims, for there forgiveness and that one enter Paradise without accounting as this is the time of acceptance and importantly recite the Durood in abundance. At this point say ?Allahu Akbar? three times and ?La ilaha illallahu? three times and pray the following: TRANSLATION:-"O Allah! Grant us beneficence in this world and in the Hereafter and protect us form the punishment of the Fire of Hell. O Allah! I beseech You of the welfare which Your Prophet besought of You; and I seek You Refuge from the Evil which Your Prophet sought Refuge form."

I beseech You of forgiveness and security in the world and the Hereafter for myself, my parents, and for all Momineen, men and women, for Your slave Shamsuddin. O Allah! Grant him victory, a grand victory (Amin)". Then moving forward and when reaching Makkah, first of all enter the Masjid-e-Haram, remembering Allah and His Messenger all the time and praying for the success and prosperity of all the Muslims, in this world and in the Hereafter. Reciting the Labaik approach the gate of Bab-us-Salaam and kiss the blessed place entering with the right foot recite this Dua: TRANSLATION: Remember this Dua and whenever you enter Masjid-ul-Haram or any other Masjid, recite this Dua and at this point add the following phrases in this Dua: TRANSLATION:-"O Allah!

Forbid and deter the Fire for the Hell to on engulf my flesh, my skin, my face, my blood, my brain and my bones. (Amin) SKETCH OF KABA SHARIF When the sight falls on the Holy Kaba recite the following three times: ?La ilaha illal lahu, Wal Lahu Akbar?, recite Durood and this Dua: DUA Commence Tawaf (going round the Khana-e-Kaba) in the Name of Almighty Allah. The Tawaf begins from the Hajjar-e-Aswad, when one approaches Hajjar-e-Aswad, recite this Dua: TRANSLATION:-There is no god but Allah the One, He made His Promise True and He helped His (Apostle) servant (against the infidels) and vanquished their forces. He is Absolutely One, He has no Associate ( in His Godhood), The rule of the world belongs to Him, all Praise is due to Him and He has Power (and Authority) over every things. Before starting Tawaf men must perform Istabaa , now facing the Kaba with the Hajjar-e-Aswad on the right, standing by the Rukn-e-Yaman in such a manner that the full view of Hajjar-e-Aswas remains at his right hand. Now make the intention of the Tawaf saying: "O Allah! I intend to make Tawaf of Your sacred House, so make it easy for me and accept it from me". After the intention face towards the Kaba, moving on the right side and when Hajjar-e-Aswad is in front of you raise both hands so that the palms of the hands face the Hajjar-e-Aswad and say: TRANSLATION: Now if it is possible, try keeping the palms at the sides with the face inbetween and kiss Hajjar-e-Aswad three times without making a sound. If one succeeds to touch the Hajjar-e-Aswad with his lips, then regard oneself as the most fortunate that one is blessed with the Divine favor to allow him to kiss the Hajjar-e-Aswad to which the lips of the Holy Prophet Peace and Blessing Upon Him had graced by their holy touch. If on account of public one can not succeed to kiss the Hajjar-e-Aswad, do not resort to push and shove. If one can touch the Hajjar-e-Aswad by the hands, it is enough for him to touch the Hajjar-e-Aswad, and then kiss his hands. If this is not possible then kiss the palms of the hands. This process of kissing is known as Istilaam. At the time of Istilaam recite the following Dua: "O Allah! Forgive me of my sins and purify my heart and expand my breast and make easy my affair and give me protection and those whom You gave protection". "O Allah! I affair my Eiman with You, and testify the Truth of Your Book (The Holy Quran) and fulfill The Promise with You and obey and follow the Sunnah of Your Prophet Muhammad - Peace and Blessing Upon Him - and bear witness that there is no god however, Allah The only One, there is associate with Aim, and I bear witness that Muhammad (Sallahllaho Alaihe Wa Sallam) Abid and apostle. I affirm my Eiman with Allah and denounce (reject) the and the Devil? Saying this, proceed towards the door of the Kaba and while performing so, when one has passed by the Hajjar-e-Aswad, stand erect and walk in such a manner that the Kaba is on the left. While walking do not trouble any one, if possible it is better to remain close to the Kaba, however, not too close that the body or clothing touch the Kaba, when one reaches the Multazam, recite this Dua: TRANSLATION:- O Allah! This House is Your House, and The Sacred Place of Your Sacred Place, and The Peace of Your Peace and this is Your Place of protection from the Fire (of Hell), so protect me from the Fire (of Hell). O Allah! give me contentment with what Your have provide me and grant blessing (and affluence) in it and I pray in absence of those who are not present. There is no god however, Allah the One, there is none to associate Him, The governance of the Universe belongs to Him, all Praise is due to Him, and He has Power (and Authority) over every thing. And when one comes near the Rukn-e-Iraqi, recite this Dua: O Allah! I seek Your refuge form prevarication (skepticism) and infidelity (disbelief), And when one reaches Meezaab-e-Rehmat, recite the following Dua: O Allah! Give me shade below the Shade of Your Throne on the Day when there is no Shade except Your shade and nothing shall survive except Your countenance and make me drink from the Pond of Your Apostle Muhammad -Peace and Blessing Upon Him- the sweet drink after which there shall be thirst for ever. And when one reaches Rukn-e-Shami, recite the following Dua: O Allah! Make this as Hajj-e-Mabroor (Rule of Goodness and Blessing) and the endeavour (worthy) of Thankfulness and the trade/business where there is no loss O one Who Knows what is in the heart (breast). Take me away from the darkness towards the Noor, light. And when one comes to the Rukne-e-yamani, touch it with both hands or kiss it with the right hand, he may also kiss it if so desired; and recite this Dua: O Allah! I beseech Your Forgiveness and Security in this world and in the Hereafter Just ahead of the Rukne-e-Yamani there is Mustajab. One may recite the above mentioned Dua or recite: Or he may only recite Durood Sharif Dua, Durood etc. should not be recited very loudly. Now after circulating the Kaba one returns to the Hajjar-e-Aswad, this is One Full Circuit. Even at this point offer Istilam at the Hajjar-e-Aswad, in this manner perform six more rounds, meaning a total of seven circuits. In the first three rounds perform Ramal, when one completes seven circuits, one has performed One Tawaf. This is known as Tawaf-e-Qudoom. After Tawaf proceed to Maqam-e-Ibrahim, reciting the verse: VERSE And offer two rakats of Salaah, this is Wajib. In the first rakat recite, ?Qul Ya Ayuhal Kafiroon? and in the second rakat ?Qul huwallahu Ahad? After the Salaah make Dua, it states in the Hadith: O Allah! You know my secrets and open apparent things of mine, therefore accept my excuse You know my needs therefore grant my requests (baggings); You know what is in my self, so forgive my sins. O Allah! I beg you of Eiman (asa) pleasure of my heart and the true certainly. You know only that will befall me what You have written (ordained) for me and make my livelihood (subsistence) as a means of contentment for me what You have apportioned for me O the most merciful of the merciful ones). After Salaah and Dua proceed to the Multazam and embrace the Multazam near the Hajjar-e-Aswad. Embrace in such a manner that the chest and both the cheeks on the Multazam, spread both the arms over the head and resting on the wall or place the right hand near the door of the Kaba and the left hand towards the Hajjar-e-Aswad and recite this Dua: TRANSLATION:- After embracing Multazam, proceed to the well of Zam Zam. If possible draw a bucket of water from the well of Zam Zam, otherwise get the water from another person facing towards the Kaba drinking as much Zam Zam to the fill in three breaths whilst standing. Begin with ?Bismillah? and finish with ?Alhamdu Lillah? glancing each time at the Kaba. The remaining water may be poured on the body, the hands, face and make Dua whilst drinking as it is a time of acceptance. The Holy Prophet (Allah's grace and peace be upon him) has said that the reason for drinking of Zam Zam is for that reason and the Dua for that is this: Translation: O Allah! I beseech You The Knowledge which is Beneficial, the subsistence which is vast (abundant) and the Deed which is worth acceptance (and reward) and The Cure for all diseases (ailments) or the all embracing due quoted earlier). It is also blissful to look into the Well of Zam Zam from above the ground it also removes rancour and hypocrisy from the heart. Now, if one is not tired proceed for the Sa?ee. Before proceeding for the Sa?ee go to Hajjar-e-Aswad kiss it if possible keeping the face towards it reciting ?Allahu Akbar Wa Laila ha Il lul Lah Wal Hamdu Lillah? and reciting Durood immediately proceed to the Hill of Safa (leave the Mosque with the left foot and when wearing the footwear commence with the right. Follow this procedure for every Mosque you go to and recite the Dua for coming out of the Mosque that has been mentioned before). Remembering Allah and reciting Durood climb the first step only and do not go future as it is not permissible and before climbing the stairs recite the following: TRANSLATION:- Then turning towards Kaba, raising both hands upto the shoulder leaving a gap between the hands and make Dua, the length of time which is taken for Dua is twenty five verses of the Surah Baqarah, repeating durood, tasbeeh, Kalama-e-Tayyibah, pray for one's own self, his parents, friends kith and kin and the Ummah.

Then coming down from Safa, proceed towards Marwa making Dhikr and Durood and when reaching the middle, walk swiftly between the marked place with green lights, then walk slowly upto Marwa and climb the first step, to the extent the area around here signifies going up the Marwa this is why do not recline against the wall which is the practice of the ignorant people. Here on account of new structures the view of Kaba is not possible, however, face towards Kaba like one did at Safa. Repeating and reciting Dua and Durood as usual, when one reaches the green area walk swiftly until the green area finishes then walk normally and climb Safa. This completes the second round of Sa?ee. In the same manner proceed from Safa to Marwa this will be the third round then from Marwa to Safa this will be the fourth round, likewise go for the fifth, sixth and seventh round. The seven rounds will finish at Marwa. To walk seven times is called Sa?ee. It will start from Safa and finish at Marwa and in-between Safa and Marwaa and from Marwa to Safa there is a place where one will walk swiftly. Now stay in Makkah until the 8th and repeat the Labaikh and perform Tawaf without Istib?a, Ramal, and Sa?ee and after every seven circuits offer two rakats Nafl Salaah.

It is better that the stones reach the Jamara, if not then throw it from three feet, if it falls further away it will not count. In this way throw seven stones one by one and stop reciting Labbaik at the strike of the very first stone. When the seventh stone is thrown do not stay there any longer, at once return reciting Dhikr and Dua. After the Rami perform the Sacrifice (Qurbani). After the Sacrifice pray to Almighty Allah for the acceptance of the Hajj and Sacrife for you and all the Muslims.

Now after shaving the hair, it is better that today on the 10th to reach Makkah for the Fardh (obligatory) Tawaf, this Tawaf is the second Rukn (Obligation) of Hajj.

Then kiss the Hajjar-e-Aswad and cry reciting this Dua: O Allah! the Provider of Felicity in His Land, I state witness (or give evidence) of You (Your Favors) and Allah is Sufficient as Witness. I give evidence (stand witness) by (the Faith) that there in no god however, Allah and I also give evidence (asa witness) that Muhammad id The Apostle of Allah and I shall repeat and proclaim this evidence in the Presence of Allah the Most Dignified in the Day of Judgment, the Day of greatest mental distraction.

And after this recite louldy the full Labaik, recite durood and make Dua, another Dua is: O Allah! I beseech Your Pleasure and I seek Your Refuge from Your wrath and the Fire (of He'll). Now avoid performing those things that are forbidden in the state of Ehram mentioned for the Hajj. Then perform Tawaf, after Tawaf perform Sa?ee. Perform Tawaf and Sa?ee in the same manner as the pilgrim for Hajj. After having performed Tawaf and Sa?ee, have the head shaven or trimmed. Now the Umrah is complete, one may now take off the Ehram. In Umrah, while commencing the Tawaf immediately having kissed the Hajjar-e-Aswad, stop reciting Labbaik . QIRAN AND TAMATTU There are four types of people in Ehram - There are three types of Hajj. One is the Exclusive Hajj, this is known as Ifrad while the Hajji is called Mufrid. For this Hajj, the intention after the Salam is: O Allah! I intend (to perform) Hajj so make it easy for me and accept it as from me. I have made Intention of the Hajj and have wear the Ehram with it in absolute sincerity and devotion for (the Pleasure of) Allah the Most Elevated The Second type is intending solely for Umrah and wear the Ehram and in Makkah wear the Ehram for Hajj. This is known as Tamattu and the Hajji is called Motamatt'e. After Salam make the following intention: O Allah! I intend performing Umrah, so make it easy for me, I have performne the Intention of Umrah and I have wear the Ehram for it with due solemnity and devotion in the Name of Allah the Most Elevate). The Third type of Hajj is to make the intention of Hajj and Umrah from the beginning. This is called Qiran and this is the most virtuous and the Hajji is called Qarin. After Salam make the following intention: O Allah! I intend (performing/performing) Umrah and the Hajj, so make both easy for me and accept both from me, I have made mode Intention for Umrah and the Hajj and wear Ehram for both in due solemnity and sincerity in the Name (and for the sake) of Allah the Most Elevated) In all situations recite Labbaik after making the intention in a loud voice . THE PROCEDURE FOR QIRAN When the pilgrim intends to perform Qiran, make preparations in the same manner as a Mufrid. Perform ablution or bath with the Intention of Ehram, offer two Rakats and after Salaam make the intention for Qiran: O Allah! I intend performing Umrah and Hajj (both) so make them easy for me and accept them from me. I am making Intention for Umrah and Hajj and have wear the Ehram for both with due solemnity and sincerity in the Name of Allah the Most Elevated then recite Labbaik with the intention of performing Umrah and Hajj together recite Durood and make Dua then begin the process of Umrah, when one reaches Makkah for Umrah perform seven circutis Tawaf , as it is performned by the Mufrid after that perform Sa?ee between Safa and Marwa this will complete the rituals of Umrah. However, neither take off the Ehram nor have the haircut, now perform the Tawaf-e-Qadoom for Hajj and perform the Sa?ee and perform the other rites of the Hajj as performed by the Mufrid. Rule: If the Qarin does not have the capability to perform Qurbani that one does not possess enough money besides the neccessity nor has assets which may be sold to secure the sacrificial animal, then fast for ten days, from them, three are kept at spcified times meaning between the first of Shawwal til the 9th of Dhil-Hajj, especially on the 7th, 8th and 9th or before this and it is better to complete fasting by the 9th and this is upto oneself at ones convenience.

Take off the Ehram and stay it Makkah. Then on the 8th wear the Ehram from Masjid-e-Haram or the Haram of Hajj and complete the Hajj like the Hajji Mufrid except for the Tawaf-e-Qudoom.

To Pass by the Meeqat without Ehram To pass Meeqat without Ehram, from the Meeqat KHOOSHK Pg 51and without Ehram one went to Makkah even if there is no intention to perform Hajj or Umrah but Hajj or Umrah becomes Wajib, now one should go back to Meeqat and wear the Ehram, if one does not go to Meeqat but wear the Ehram in Makkah then Dam becomes Wajib. Rule: If one passes Meeqat without Ehram then wears the Ehram of Umrah then for Hajj or performed Qiran then Dam becomes necceccasry and if the Ehram is worn for Hajj then the Ehram for Umrah while in Haram then two Dams are due .

Rule: If one completed all the rites of Umrah and only Halq was remaining, so one wore another Ehram for Umrah then Dam becomes Wajib and becomes a sinner. Rule: It is forbidden for the person performing Hajj to wear the Ehram from the 10th till the 13th of Dhil-Hajj and if one wears the Ehram, take it off and perform Qaza and give Dam and if fulfill, Dam still is Wajib. THE MOHSAR One who wears the Ehram for Hajj or Umrah but for a certain reason could not fulfill it this is called Mohsar. The circumstances which may prevent one from performing Hajj or Umrah are as following: (1) The enemy (2) Wild beast (3) Illness or disease that is likely to go worse or you think it may go worse (4) Breaking of hands or feet (5) Imprisonment (6) The death of husband or Mehram with whom she was going on Hajj (7) Iddat (period of mourning by the widow or loss of transport, the husband does not allow the wife for a Nafil Hajj. COMMANDS FOR THE MOHSAR The rule for the Mohsar is that one can not take off the Ehram unless one reaching Makkah and performs Tawaf, Sa'ee and the Halq. If one wills to take off the Ehram one must send the sacrifice to Haram, when the sacrifice is done, the Ehram can be taken off or send the amount of sacrifice to Haram so a animal may be purchased and sacrificed it is also necessary that one must express to the messenger whom one has authorised to carry the money that the animal be sacrificed on such a date and at such a time and after this time one will come out of the Ehram. If the Qurbani is done on time or before then it is alright and if done after and one comes to know later one must offer Dam as he come out of Ehram before the animal was sacrificed, it is not a condition for a Mohsar to have the Halq done but is better do so . Rule: If the Mohsar is a Mufrid (meaning one wearing the Ehram only for Hajj or Umrah), then send one Qurbani and if a Qarin send two . For this Qurbani Haram is a condition. It can not be done outside, there is however, no fix time limit for the sacrifice . Rule: If the Qarin sent two Qurbanies but only one animal could be purchased then only one will not suffice . Rule: If the Qarin performed Tawaf for Umrah and became a Mohsar before the Wuqoof of Arafat, send one Qurbani and in place of the Hajj perform one Hajj and one Umrah, another Umrah is not neccessary . Rule: If the thing which prevented one from going has passed and there is enough time for both Hajj and Qurbani then to go is obligatory and if one went and performed Hajj then there is no problem if not then perform Umrah and come out of the Ehram and the Qurbani sent, you have now got back then do as one wills with it. Rule: After Wuqoof-e-Arafah there is no AHSAR Pg 53 and if still in Makkah but the Tawaf and Wuqoof QADAR Pg 53 one will be a Mohsar and from either one is Qadir on one then one will not be a Mohsar . Rule: When the Mohsar sends the Qurbani and comes out of Ehram, now one wants to offer Qaza then if the Ehram was only for Hajj then perform one Hajj and one Umrah and if the Ehram was for Qiran then perform one Hajj and two Umrahs and if the perseption is to offer Qaza for the Qiran then perform one Umrah or all three separately and if the Ehram was for only Umrah then perform one Umrah . THE LOSS OF THE HAJJ One whose Hajj is lost, meaning one does not perform the Wuqoof-e-Arafat then perform Tawaf and Sa?ee shave his hair or trim the hair and come out of Ehram and perform the Hajj the next year and Dam is not Wajib . Rule: If Qarin loses his Hajj perform Sa'ee and Tawaf for Umrah then perform another Tawaf and Sa'ee and perform the Halq and by this the Dam of Qiran will be waived and perform Tawaf as soon as this is done come out of the Ehram, as soon as commencing this stop reciting Labbaik and perform the Qaza of the Hajj next year, there is no Qaza for Umrah as this has already been done . Rule: The one performing Tamattu brought an animal for Qurbani and the Tamattu becomes void for some reason one may do what one likes with the animal. Rule: Umrah can not be lost as it can be performed the whole lifetime, however, Umrah is makrooh during five days meaning from the 9th Dhil-Hajj to 13th Dhil-Hajj . Rule: Tawaf-e-Sadr does not have to be performed if a person?s Hajj is lost . Rule: One who loses the Hajj and after doing Sa'ee does not take off the Ehram and performs Hajj the next year with the same Ehram then his Hajj will not be correct . HAJJ-E-BADAL (HAJJ BY PROXY) There are few conditions for Hajj-e-Badal (1) One performing Hajj-e-Badl, Hajj is Fardh on him (Meaning if it was not Fardh and one performed Hajj-e-Badl or the Fardh Hajj was not performed meaning Hajj become Fardh later then this Hajj will not suffice if one is capable then perform the Hajj or if capable himself one should do so. (2) On whose behalf the Hajj-e-Badal is performed for, if one has the capability to do so (meaning one can not perform Hajj on their own). If one is capable of performing it by himself and now in his state of helplessness but later becomes well meaning at this time he was not capable of performing Hajj then become well then make the person perform Hajj twice. CHECK Pg 54 (3) From the time of Hajj till death, one is capable of Hajj (If in between one becomes capable, one should perform Hajj themselves then the first Hajj performed will be void that will not suffice, however, if there was such a reason that the person had no intention to go and all of a sudden went and the Hajj performed in the beginning will suffice for instance one was blind and after Hajj gained the sight back then there is no need to perform Hajj again. (4) On whose behalf Hajj is undertaken should expressed their desire. Without permission, Hajj-e-Badal is not acceptable. However if the lawful inheritor (waris) performs the Hajj on behalf of the MORUS, then no permission is necessary. (5) The money (for all due expenses) shall be provided by the man on whose behalf Hajj is to be undertaken. (6) Only that man can perform Hajj-e-Badal who has been asked to do so. Hajj-e-Badal by any other man is not acceptable. (However, if a person who has passed away nominated a particular person before death to do Hajj on his behalf then if the nominated person passes away or refuses to go on his behalf then a replacement is allowed to do Hajj on the deceased person?s behalf). (7) The person doing Hajj on behalf of someone should use means of transport to travel around and all cost should be paid by the person whose Hajj is prayed for, there is an exception that if there is a shortage of money then the Hajj may be proceeded on foot. Transport is meant by the term of which some travels have to be on transport. (8) The person going on Hajj-e-Badal should proceed from the place where he lives. (9) Ehraam should be worn from the Meeqat if urged by the person whose Hajj is being done for. (10) The Hajj should be undertaken and performed with the intention of the sender. It is better with the words Labbaik he should letter the name of the man. (If he forgets the name he should declare in his that he is doing the Hajj on behalf of the man who has sent him. Apart from the rules stated earlier there are some more which will be explained in forecoming text and the ones which have been stated are solely for obligatory Hajj which is on behalf of someone if the Hajj is nafl then these rules are not of importance. Rule: Two men nominated the same man for Hajj on their behalf and he took the names of both the senders while reciting Labbaik. In this case, the Hajj from neither of the two will be valid . THE WILL FOR HAJJ Rule: On whom Hajj is Fardh, Qaza or the Hajj that someone has willed and that is in his responsibility and the time of death draws close then it is Wajib that one makes the will . On whom Hajj is Fardh and it is not performed and was not willed for then in both situations one will be a sinner, if his successor wills to perform the Hajj-e-Badal on behalf of the deceased there is no problem. If Allah wills it will be accepted, if the deceased had made a will then the Hajj should be performed with one third of the wealth left by the deceased, if the deceased had not imposed the condition of one third of the wealth for instance he said in his will that perform the Hajj on his behalf. Rule: If one third of the wealth is enough that the Hajj can be undertaken by a person from his home town, then a person from his home town be sent, otherwise send him from somewhere within the Meeqat from where it is afforable with the one third wealth left. CHECK pg 55 In the same way if someone can be sent from the fixed amount set in the will then send from where possible, if one third or the fixed amount is not enough to send someone from within the Meeqat then the will be invalid . Rule: Some one who went for Hajj and in the journey or at Makkah before Wuqoof-e-Arafah dies, if the Hajj had become Fardh in the same year then for one to leave a will is not Wajib and if one dies after the Wuqoof the Hajj is fulfilled then if the Tawaf-e-Fardh remains and one makes a will for completing the Hajj then some one should perform the sacrifice of Badanah on his behalf . Rule: For Hajj-e-Badl it is better to send one who has already performed Hajj, if some one who has not performed Hajj is sent it will be valid and if on whom Hajj is Fardh is sent and has not performed his Hajj then it is Makrooh-e-Tehrimi . SOME DETAILS OF HADEE Hadee is the animal that is taken to Haram for sacrifice. They are of three types (1) Shaat, meaning goat, sheep and lamb (2) Batr, meaning Cow or Buffalo (3) Camel. The lowest grade of Hadee is a goat, if some one makes a will to send an animal to be sacrificed in Haram without specifing an animal the sacrifice of a goat will suffice . Rule: The Qurbani animal weather a male or female the same rule applies, in the same way one can use a male or a female animal. Rule: The conditions laid for the Hadee animals are the same for the Qurbani. This means that the minimum age of a camel is five years, cow and buffalo atleast two years old. A goat is atleast one year old, however, if the sheep or lamb is six months old but appears to be one year then it can be used and in the Hadee sacrifice of a cow, buffalo, camel seven persons can share the sacrifice . Rule: If the Hadee animal belongs to a Qaran or Matammati then it is better if some meat is eaten by oneself, likewise if the Hadee is Nafl and has reached the Haram and if the animal has not reached the Haram then the owner can not eat the meat, the poor has the right over it and these three can not be eaten seperatelty and the meat of the Hadee animal that is permitted to eat, can also be given to rich too and the animal that is not permitted to eat, then one can not receive any benefit form its skin . Rule: The sacrifice of Qarin and Matammati can not be performed before the 10th DhilHajj and if done after 10th Dhil-Hajj it will be valid, however, Dam will be due, reason being that to delay is not permissible and besides for these two no perticular day is fixed it is better on to do it on the 10th. It is essential that the animal be in the Haram, it does not have to be in Mina, however, if it is performed on the 10th then it is Sunnah in Mina and after the 10th it is Sunnah in Makkah. The slaughter of the Badanah animal that has been willed is not a condition to sacrifice in the Haram if the will was not a condition in the Haram . Rule: It is better the meat of the animal is distributed among the poor and needy of the Haram. ????? be given away in charity and nothing should be given to the butcher ,however, if given by the way of good will then there is no problem . Rule: It is not permissible to ride or load on Hadee animal without the need and if one uses the animal for this and if the animal had any deficiency any way, one should give Sadaqah to the poor . Rule: Do not milk a Hadee animal and if under some curcumstance she is milked then the milk be given to the poor and if the milk is not given then the price should be given to the needy . Rule: If the Hadee animal gives birth then either give as charity or slaughter along with the animal, however, if one sells the young one or kills it then give its price away as charity and it is better if one purchashes another animal of sacrifice with that money . Rule: If some one slaughted an animal of other person by mistake while the other one slaughted the animal of that person then the sacrifice of both will count . Rule: If an animal was taken to Haram for sacrifice on the way it began to die then slaughter it straight away and stain the rope of the animal with blood together with the hump so the rich person will not eat its meat only the poor should eat it, if the animal was nafil then it is not obligatory to purchase another animal in its place and if it was a Wajib Qurbani then it is Wajib to purchase another animal and if the animal is now suffering form a defect which does not permit the sacrifice then one may do what one likes with it and purchase another animal if it is Wajib . Rule: If the animal has reached the Haram and is about to die then slaughter the animal and give to the poor do not eat it yourself even if it is Nafil and if the animal is suffering from minor defects but still fit for sacrifice then sacrifice and one can eat the meat . VISITING MADINAHH SHARIF DIGNITY OF MADINAH SHARIF The Messenger of Allah Sallalahu Alaihi Wa Sallam has said that one who can die in Madinah then one should die in Madinah as the one who dies in Madinah I shall intercede for him and he has said the one who gives difficulty to the people of Madinah Almighty Allah will put him in difficulty, and on them is curse of Allah Almighty, the Angels and all the people, and his Fardh or Nafl will be accepted and he said that one who deceives the people of Madinah, he will dissolved as salt is dissolved in water . And he said that the angels keep vigilance on the pathways to Madina, the Dajjal will not enter nor the Pg 58 plague and The Holy Prophet Allah's grace and peace be upon him prayed for Madinah that Allah increases two fold more than Makkah Pg 58 . The benefits and blessing and the loss of not visiting the Holy court of the Prophet Allah's Peace and Grace be upon him Allah Almighty states in the Holy Quran: TRANSLATION:- When people wrong themselves and (O Prophet) they come to you to seek forgiveness from Allah and you also pray for their forgiveness, they will Allah as the Acceptor of repentance and the Most Merciful.) The Holy Prophet (Allah's peace and grace be upon him) has said,"One who visits my Grave then my intercesion becomes Wajib on me" . He has said, One who performs Hajj and visits my grave after my death, it is as if he visited me in my life-time . He has said that One who performs Hajj and does not visit me, he oppressed me . NOTE: Many people being friends give different types of advice and make one afraid that there will be difficulties in the journey that there is dieases and this and that. Beware do not listen to them never go with the intention of fault. You will certainly die one day and what a better way to die than the path to Madinah and your experience CHECK Pg 58 ETIQUETTES OF ZIARAT (1) When visiting only make the intetnion, to the extent Imam Ibn Humam that do not even make the intention of entering the Mosque (2) If the Hajj is obligatory then perform Hajj and thereafter go Madinah, however, Madinah is on the way then without visiting it would be an act of misfortune and one should make this visit a source of acceptance of the Hajj and also making the Prophet as a mediator and if the Hajj Nafl than visit the court of the Prophet first then make him a mediator for ones Hajj being accepted. CHECK Pg 59 (3) On the way engage oneself in reciting Durood and Salaam and Dhikr, the closer one gets to Madinah be happy.

(8) Visit all the parts of the Masjid then send Durood and Salam and wait for some time then ask permission to visit the court and recite Bismallah and enter with sincerity and devotion with the right foot. (9) At this moment every Muslim knows how important it is to be respectful at all your mind, heart, eyes, ears, tongue, hand and feet from all thoughts, do not look at the structure and beauty of the Mosque and if someone comes whom greeting is important to perform then where possible do not divert your attention from the Prophet and keep your heart towards the Prophet. (10) Never say a word that is not important. LIFE OF THE PROPHETS It must be borne in mind with the deepest faith and Belief that our beloved Prophet Peace and Blessing Upon Him is still alive as true, real, wordly and physical qualities which he possessed when he lived in his worldy life, the death of all apostles was nothing but momentary disappearance from the sight of the world and there death is only to disappear from the eyes of the people. Imam Muhammad Ibne Haaj Makki states in his book ?Madkhal? and Imam Ahmad Qastalani in his ?Mawa'hib Ladunniyah? and other scholars in their books state: TRANSLATION:- There is no difference in the death and life of the Messenger of Allah Sallallahu Aliahe wa Sallam, in respect of his observation of his Ummah, he is aware with their condition and their intentions, their determinations and their hearts contents and all these are so manifest before that no covering can hide them. Imam Rehmatullah Alai?s student Imam Mohaqqiq Ibn Alhimam Munsik in ?Mutawassit? and Ali Qari Makki in his Sharah (explanation) MALAK MUTAQAT states: TRANSLATION:- Surely the Holy Prophet Allah's grace and peace be upon him is fully aware of your presence, your standing and your Salam in fact all your activities and conditions and moving from one place to another and staying .

The place for offering Thanksgiving (Shukrana) prayers be as close the Mehrab of the Holy Masjid as possible, if this is not possible than as close as possible then prostrate for thanksgiving and make supplication O Allah give me the respect of your beloved and accept it for me. (14) Now proceed with respect with the head lowered, eyes lowered in reverence and utmost humility remembering one?s sins reliying on his mercy proceed towards the from the eastern side in the precence of the Prophet?s grave and the Qibla behind, the Prophet?s attetnion will be towards you and this is enough for you in both worlds. (15) If you are fortunate to have the Divine Blessing, in those auspicious moments you may place stand atleast at a distance of four arms with the back to the Qibla and face the blessed grave and place your hands in the same manner as one would do in Salaah . (16) Beware do not touch or kiss the blessed golden gage as it is against the respect, in fact do not go closer than four arm length, is his mercey not enough that the Prophet has called you and granted you a place although his attention was towards you but now it is even closer. (17) Now like your heart the sight is also facing towards the blessed gage where the resting place of the beloved of Allah is, now with sincerity and modesty reciting ( ) not in a low voice (as it is against the Sunnah ) CHECK Pg 62 TRANSLATION:- O Holy Prophet Peace be on you and the Mercy and Blessing of Allah, O the Best of Creation of, Peace be on You O The intercesor of the sinners, Peace be on You and on Your Kin and Your companions and all the Ummah.

I beseech you to **** for us before the Apostle of Allah, Allah's peace and grace on him and you and the Blessing and Peace). (23) All these places are of acceptance meaning one should try and make Dua, pray the Due-e-Jam?I and to pray Durood with sole emphasis or recite the following: TRANSLATION:- O Allah! I make you witness and Your Apostle and Abu Bakr and Umar and Your Angels who descend on this Shrine and who stay here. I make them all witness and give evidence that there is no god but You, You are Alone and there no companion to You and Muhammad Peace and Blessing Upon Him Your Abd and Your Apostle. O Allah!

(27) As long as one stays in Madinah do not waste any time, apart from neccesities most of the time should be spent in the Mosque with respect, spent time in Salaah, reciting the Qur?an and Durood. Any worldy talk should not be done in any Mosque especially the Mosque of the Prophet. (28) While entering the Mosque make the intention of Eitekaf, in fact make the intetion in every Mosque. (29) It is fortunate for a person who gets the opportunity of staying in Madinah in the Holy month of Ramdhan, especially during hot weather the intercession is a promise.

Try to concerntrate on eating less where possible give alms, importantly the people from here should give alms in times of need.

(35) To miss congregational prayers at any place is a sin and if it happens few times it is stickly forbidden and a major sin and here besides major sin ??? Pg 65 may Allah save us.

When one enters the graveyard first intend to pray for all departed souls buried there by praying: ?Peace be on you (all) dwelling the homes of the community of Believers.You are our predecessors and if Allah The Excelled wills we shall meet you.
