The Islamic Pilgrimage

Journey was appointed in the 6th year after the relocation of the Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah magnify his notice ). It gets the job done for a pioneer to do it rare, and performing it more than once is willful.

A Pilgrim whose Hajj is acknowledged by Allah is given the great news that he would come back with every one of his transgressions being excused. The Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah lift up his notice ) says: "He who performs Hajj with no foulness or shrewdness practices will turn out from all wrongdoings as a recently conceived child." [Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

In this article, we will direct you through the means of journey and attempt to be as brief as conceivable without forgetting about anything significant or un visited.

In the wake of finishing up his 'Umrah, one returns to ordinary (no Ihram confinements). At that point, you rehash the supplication of Hajj, called Talbiyyah, saying: "Labbayka Allahumma labbayk. Labbayka la shareeka laka labbayk. Innalhamda wna-n'imata laka walmulk, la shareek lak".
