How to Perform the Rituals of Hajj and Umrah
In The Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most MercifulPraise be to Allah, Lord of the Universe. May peace and blessings be upon Muhammad, the last of the prophets and messengers, and upon his family and esteemed companions. Hajj is one of the best forms of worship and is one of the most sublime deeds because it is one of the pillars of Islam that Allah sent Muhammad-may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him-with. A servant's religion is incomplete without it. A form of worship is only acceptable when the following is true.
One devotes it to Allah alone, with a desire for the Hereafter. It cannot be done with the intention of being seen among people or for worldly gain.
One follows the Prophet's example, in words and deeds. This cannot be accomplished except by gaining knowledge of the Sunnah.
