Before The Start Of Hajj Journey

Fiqh, Hajj - Merits and Precepts

Please be careful about certain things :-

1. Purify your intention (Niyyat) for Hajj only for the sake of Allah and exclusively keeping in view the heavenly reward. Do not allow any worldly honour and vanity or any financial advantages or any worldly selfish design to mix up with your intention for Hajj. There is of course no Harm if even then some worldly benefits are attained to by Allah’s grace (and according to Hadith wordly benefits will also be certainly available), but you should not impurify your intention for their sake.

4) Not Performing the Prayer

Beliefs & Practices, Major Sins

Allah, the Most High, says,

But after them there followed a posterity who missed Prayers and followed after lusts soon, then, will they face destruction, except those who repent and believe, and work righteousness.” (Maryam: 59-60)

Commenting on the above verses (Ayat), Ibn ‘Abbas said,

“Allah’s statement, “Who missed Prayers does not mean that they did not perform it at all but rather they did not perform it in its due time.”
