Hajj: A Faithful Journey To Allah!

Allah almighty says: “Fulfill the pilgrimage and make the visitation for Allah” [Al Baqarah -196]. Hajj is the action of visiting Allah’s house (Holy Kaaba) in Mecca to perform rites of pilgrimage as Allah ordered, it’s the fifth pillar of Islam, it was imposed at the 9th hijri year, it’s imposed only on Muslims who are physically and financially able to afford cost and difficulty of travel, so you have to perform this duty once in your entire life if you are healthy adult having enough money to go to Mecca, perform hajj and return without causing any harm to your family or putting them in financial distress, Allah Almighty says: ” Pilgrimage to the House is a duty to Allah for all who can make the journey, And whosoever disbelieves, Allah is Rich, independent of all the worlds” [Aali ‘Imran-97].
