In the Name
of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
from Haraam Income

Truly, all praise and favour is Yours, as well as all Dominion. There
is no partner to You.”
Every Muslims love to go
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
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
devoted to please Allah by fulfilling His commandments without showoff,
without over expenses and from Halaal Income (Ref: Al_Quraan_004:142,
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).
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.
Hajj is not
transferable, since you will get reward of what you have done. (Ref:
You must read a book on
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
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
Fard Hajj then remember Allah more and more which also includes
involving yourself in many other Fard works for the humanity. (Ref:
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
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.
