The Virtues Of Performing Hajj From Hadith

 Abu Hurairah (RA) reports that Rasulullah (SAW) said: “Verily there shall be no reward for a righteous pilgrimage except Jannah

Ayesha (RA) reports that Rasulullah (SAW) said: “There is no day in which Allah sets free more souls from the fire of hell than on the day of Arafat. And on that day Allah draws near to the earth and by way of exhibiting His pride remarks to the Angels: “What is the desire of these servants of mine.”

Talha (RA) reports that Rasulullah (SAW) said: “Apart from the day of the battle of Badr there is no day on which the Shaytaan is seen more humiliated, more rejected. More depressed and more infuriated, than on the day of Arafat, and indeed all that is only because of beholding the abundance of descending mercy (on that day) and Allah’s forgiveness of the great sins of the servants“. (Mishkaat)

Ibn Shimaastah reports we were present around Amr Ibn al-Aas (RA) before he passed away. He cried for a long time and then related the story of his embracing Islam. He said: “When Allah caused Islam to enter my heart, I came to Rasulullah (SAW) and said: ‘O messenger of Allah put forth your hand that I may swear allegiance. ‘When Rasulullah (SAW) stretched forth his hand, I withheld mine. Rasulullah (SAW) inquired: “What troubles you ‘O Amr?” I said: I went to make a condition that Allah shall forgive my previous sins”. Rasulullah (SAW) replied: ‘O Amr, do you then not know that Islam washes away all sins committed in disbelief, and that the Hijrat (migration) washes away all sins committed before Hajj?”

Sahl bins Sa’ad(RA) reports that Rasulullah(SAW) said: “When a Muslim shouts Labbaik, then verily every stone, tree and all the ground to his right and to his left recites the same, and this continues till that cry reaches the end of the earth“.

Abu Moosa (RA) reports that Rasulullah (SAW) said: “The Hajji shall intercede on behalf of four hundred families or he said four hundred people from his family, and verily does he return from Hajj (sinless) as on the day his mother gave birth to him.”

Ibn Umar (RA) report that Rasulullah (SAW) said: “When you meet a Hajji (on his way home) then greet him, shake hands with him and ask him to beg forgiveness of Allah on your behalf before he enters his home, for his prayer for forgiveness is accepted since he is forgiven by Allah for his sins.”

Buraidah (RA) reports that Rasulullah (SAW) said: “The expenses incurred during Hajj is like that incurred in Jihaad; rewarded seven hundred times.”

Abu Hurairah(RA) reports that Rasulullah(SAW) said: “Whoever sets forth in a journey to perform Hajj and passes away on route, for him shall be written the reward of a Hajji until the day of Qiyamah; and whoever sets forth to perform Umrah and passes away on route, for him shall be written the reward of a Mu’tamir until Qiyamah; and whoever sets forth on a journey to fight in the way of Allah and passes away on route, for him shall be written the reward of a Mujaahid until the day of Qiyamah.”

Ibn Abbas (RA) reports that a Sahabiyah (a Muslim lady who saw Rasulullah (SAW) once said to Rasulullah (SAW): “O Rasulullah (SAW), the obligation of Hajj has come at a time now when my father is a very old and weakly man. He is unable to remain seated on a camel (or horse). Can I then proceed to perform Hajj on his behalf?” Rasulullah (SAW) replied: “Yes, you can.”
Another Sahabi (RA) also came with a similar request: “O Rasulullah (SAW), my sister made vow that she would perform Hajj. Now she has passed away. What should we do?”
Rasulullah (SAW) replied: “Should she have passed away while she owed someone something, would you have settled that debt?” The man replied: “Yes indeed.” Rasulullah (SAW) said: “This is a debt due to Allah. Settle it.” (Mishkaat)

Jabir (RA) reports: “Verily Allah causes three people to enter into Paradise through one Hajj; The deceased, (on whose behalf this Hajj is being performed) the Hajji performing it and he (the heir or others) who makes possible its performance (by financial aid).”
