Hadith Number Five

Chapter 08 - Ziyyaarat of Madina., Dawah & Tabligh, Virtues of Hajj (Fazail e Hajj) / Monday, October 25th, 2010

Hazrat Ibn Umar R.A. relates that Rasulullah Sal’am said: ‘Whosoever performs Haj and does not come to visit me, has indeed acted unjustly and persecuted me.’

This seems like a strict warning. And why not? The great favors which Rasool Sal’am had bestowed on this Ummat are of such a nature that a person who neglects to visit him or negligently fails to do so in spite of having the means to do so, has treated him shabbily. Had it not been for the fact that some ulama of hadith had objected to the correctness and authenticity of this Hadith, Ziyaarat would have been waajib. Allama Qastalani wrote in his book ‘Mawa-Hibul-Ladun niyya’: ‘Who ever in spite of wealth and means does not perform Ziyaarat has indeed acted unjustly.’
