The Fiqh of Hajj

Taken from Silsilah Ahadeeth As-Saheehah & Silsilah Ahadeeth Ad-Daeefah By the Muhaddith, Shaykh, Allamaa’ Muhammad Nasiruddeen al-Albaani


No. 830 – On the authority of Zaid bin Khalid al-Juhanee, on the authority of the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam who said: ‘Jibraeel came to me and said: O Muhammad! Order your Companions to raise their voices with the Talbeeyah (proclamation for Hajj or Umrah), since it is from the signs of Hajj.’

No. 1500 – On the authority of Abu Bakr as-Siddeeq who said that the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam was asked: ‘What is the best Hajj?’ He answered ‘The one where you raise your voice reciting the Talbeeyah and you slaughter an animal.’

No. 1621 – On the authority of Abu Huraira in a narration ascribed to the Prophet: -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam: ‘A person does not ever make Talbeeyah except he is given glad tidings, nor does a person ever say Takbeer except he is given glad tidings.’ It was asked: ‘With Paradise?’ He answered: ‘Yes.’ Mina

No. 804 – On the authority of Ibn Abbas: the Messenger – sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam used to visit the House (Ka’ba) every night from the nights of Mina.’ Tawwaf

No. 2725 – On the authority of Abdullaah bin Umar who said I heard the Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam saying: ‘Whoever makes seven circuits of Tawwaf around the House (Ka’ba) and prays two Rakats, it is the same as freeing a slave.’ Salutation of the House – for the person not in Ihram- is Two Rakah The Hadeeth has no chain – La Asl laha

No.1012 – ‘Salutation of the House is done with Tawwaf.’ The Hadeeth has no chain – La Asl laha Silsilah-Daeefah Shaykh Albaani said: ‘I say: I do not know, neither from the sayings or actions of the Sunnah, that which attests the meaning of this hadeeth other than the general evidences which mention praying before sitting in the Masjid which then include the Masjid al-Haraam. The assertion that salutation of the Masjid al-Haraam is the Tawwaf opposes the general evidence previously mentioned. So, this salutation cannot be accepted until it can be affirmed and how inconceivable is that?

Especially as – due to experience – it is not possible for the person entering the Masjid al-Haraam during the days of the sacred seasons to perform the Tawwaf every time he enters it, so praise be to Allaah who has made the matter easy. <> Indeed what must be brought to attention here regarding this verdict is that it is for the person who is not a Muhrim. As for the person who is in Ihram then the rightful Sunnah is that he begins with the Tawwaf and then the two Rakah after it.’

All Praise belongs to Allaah, may His peace and blessings be upon our final Prophet Muhammad, his family, his companions and all those who follow his guidance
