In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Halaal HAJJ from Haraam Income
By Irshad Mahmood – Director, Siraat-al-Mustaqeem Dawah Centre

“Labbayk Allahumma Labbayk. Labbayk La shareeka Laka Labbayk. Innal hamda Wan ni’mata Laka wal mulk. La shareeka lak.”

“Here I am at Your service O Lord, here I am. Here I am. There is no partner to You. Here I am. Truly, all praise and favour is Yours, as well as all Dominion. There is no partner to You.”

Every Muslims love to go for Hajj during his lifetime but many are unaware of their sources of incomes/funds to perform Hajj. Mixing Halaal with Haraam may invalidate Halaal deeds including Hajj. Just remember, why our Duaas are not being accepted even in Hajj, as well as during fasting in the month of Ramadaan and on Lailatul-Qadr (night of power). Also why Muslim Ummah still facing great turbulence of natural and manmade disaster?

One should not do the Great Mistake that “I am Right” (100% correct). If he/she is right, it is very good, BUT if he/she is wrong then it is WORST and he/she will never ever correct himself/herself and might go to hell forever.

Let us take the Guidance from the Quraan to make our Hajj pure Halaal as much as possible.

Hajj should be DEBT FREE and totally devoted to please Allah by fulfilling His commandments without showoff, without over expenses and from Halaal Income (Ref: Al_Quraan_004:142, 009:053-055, 107:006).

Even one single Great Sin may wash away all of your good deeds and may put you into the Hellfire forever, Ref: 025:043-044, Al_Quraan_002:085).

Examples of Single/Multiple Great Sins:
Iblees was the first committer of Great Sins. [Ref: Al_Quraan_002.034]
People of Shueyb (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) [Ref: Al_Quraan_012.084]
People of Musa (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) about Sabbath [Ref: Al_Quraan_007.163]
People of Lut (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) [Ref: Al_Quraan_007.080-084]

Enter into Islam whole-heartedly, and follow not the footsteps of the evil one. (Al_Quraan_002.208)

Hajj is not transferable, since you will get reward of what you have done. (Ref: Al_Quraan_036:054, 045:028)

You must read a book on HAJJ, and learn everything yourselves do not depend on the Hajj guide or Moulana / Sheikh. In case, your Moulana or your Guide get sick, lost or die, you should still be able to carry your HAJJ and perform your HAJJ properly.

Only first Hajj is Fard, and rest is Nawafil. Keep in mind, Rasool Allah (Peace-Be-Upon-Him) had performed Hajj only once in his lifetime. If you already had done your Fard Hajj then please leave it for others who haven’t yet performed their Fard Hajj, unless you are helping your Mahrams for their Fard Hajj. This may also be more economical and helpful to those who are performing their Fard Hajj and more new people may be accommodated to perform their Fard Hajj.

If you already had performed your Fard Hajj then remember Allah more and more which also includes involving yourself in many other Fard works for the humanity. (Ref: Al_Quraan_002:200)

Remember: Your Hajj may not be accepted if your Salaat is not accepted and Your Salaat may not be accepted if your Zakaat or Sadaqah is not accepted:

Do you know who really rejects the faith? That is the one who mistreats the orphans, and does not encourage the feeding of the poor, so woe to the praying ones, who are totally neglectful of their prayers, those who do (good) only to show off, but refuse (to supply) (even for) neighbourly needs. (Al_Quraan_107.001-007)
