Hadith Number Two

Chapter 01 - Encouragement towards performing Hajj, Dawah & Tabligh, Virtues of Hajj (Fazail e Hajj) / Friday, October 16th, 2009

Hazrat Abu Huraira R.A. reports that Rasulullah Salallaho Alaihi Wassallam) said: “Verily there shall be no reward for a righteous pilgrimage except Jannat”.

According to some ulama a “Mabroor Hajj” (a righteous Hajj) is such a pilgrimage during which no evil deed is committed. For this reason they speak of Hajj-e-Mabroor as a Maqbool Hajj (an accepted Hajj). By this they mean such a Hajj wherein the Hajee took note of each and every one of the Aadaab and Shuroot of Hajj while at the same time avoiding all faults.

By way of further elucidation we quote a Hadith by Hazrat Jaabir R.A. in which Rasulullah Sal’am said: ” the beauty (righteousness) of Hajj lies in feeding others and speaking to them in an amicable fashion”. Another Hadith states: “The virtue of Hajj lies in feeding others and in greeting others a lot”. (Targheeb)

It is also reported that when Rasulullah (Salallaho Alaihi Wassallam) announced that Paradise alone shall be the reward for a righteous Hajj, some companions inquired as to what a righteous Hajj actually was. To this Rasulullah (Salallaho Alaihi Wassallam) replied: “To feed others and to greet much”. (Kanzul Ammaal)
