How To Perform Hajj & Ummrah



See Part 1

“Islam is built upon five (pillars): testifying that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, establishing regular Prayer, paying Zakaah, Hajj and fasting Ramadan.” (Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 8; Muslim, 16).

See Part 2

Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah) to the House (Kabah) is a duty that mankind owes to Allah, those who can afford the expenses (for one’s conveyance, provision and residence); and whoever disbelieves [i.e. denies Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah), then he is a disbeliever of Allah], then Allah stands not in need of any of the ‘Aalameen (mankind, jinn and all that exists) [Aal Imraan 3:97]
See Part 3
Thus every man or women who has the ability to go for Hajj, must go at least once in their lifetime. A women must to accompanied by a male mahrem. If she does not have a male mahrem then she is not required to go. But as soon as she has a male mahrem willing to take her to Hajj then she is required to go (assuming she has the ability to go). And the Hajj is the Jihad for the Muslim women as women are not required to fight in Jihad.
See Part 4
Hajj has its own etiquette and conditions which the Muslims must observe, such as restraining their tongues, hearing and sight from all that Allah has forbidden, being sincere in their intentions, using money from good sources (for Hajj), fostering the best attitude, and avoiding everything that could invalidate the Hajj, such as sexual relations, sin or arguing unjustly,
