Introduction to Hajj

The fifth Pillar of Islam is the pilgrimage to Makkah and its surroundings known as Hajj. All Muslims are obligated to make Hajj once in their lifetimes if they can afford it and are otherwise able to do so.

The Hajj is made from the eighth to the twelfth of the Islamic month of Dhul-Hijjah.

Muslims travel from all over the world to perform Hajj. The rituals are themselves simple, but the amount of walking necessary, the hot climate, and the crowds make the Hajj a rigorous exercise in faith. Still, between 2 and 3 million people perform Hajj every year, and millions more yearn to do so.

To perform the Hajj, pilgrims enter a state of consecration known as ihram. In this state they may not clip their nails, cut or pluck any hair, or have any sort of sexual contact. Male pilgrims wear special clothes consisting of two seamless strips of cloth, one covering the back and shoulders, the other covering from the waist to the knees. Female pilgrims can wear ordinary clothing that covers everything but the face and hands.

The rituals of Hajj date back to the time of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham) and commemorate his willingness to sacrifice his only son, Isma`il (Ishmael). During the days of Hajj, the pilgrims attempt to forget all but their most basic worldly needs and to focus their attention and devotion on Allah Alone.

Going for Hajj when one has debts
 

 

Q: I will be embarking on Hajj this year, Inshallah, and I want to find out what is my correct Islamic duty with regards to fulfilling long term debts. Do I have to pay the complete amount or ensure that the payments due within that period will be made?

A: If you settle the installments that are presently due and you feel that you will be able to pay the remainder amount after returning from Hajj, it will be permissible for you to go for Hajj if your creditors do not mind.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.

كتاب الحج ( هو ) بفتح الحاء وكسرها لغة القصد إلى معظم لا مطلق القصد كما ظنه بعضهم  وشرعا ( زيارة ) أي طواف ووقوف ( مكان مخصوص ) أي الكعبة وعرفة ( في زمن مخصوص ) في الطواف من فجر النحر إلى آخر العمر وفي الوقوف من زوال شمس عرفة لفجر النحر ( بفعل مخصوص ) بأن يكون محرما بنية الحج سابقا كما سيجيء لم يقل لأداء ركن من أركان الدين ليعم حج النفل ( فرض ) سنة تسع وإنما أخره عليه الصلاة والسلام لعشر لعذر مع علمه ببقاء حياته ليكمل التبليغ ( مرة ) لأن سببه البيت وهو واحد والزيادة تطوع وقد تجب كما إذا جاوز الميقات بلا إحرام فإنه كما سيجيء يجب عليه أحد النسكين فإن اختار الحج اتصف بالوجوب وقد يتصف بالحرمة كالحج بمال حرام وبالكراهة كالحج بلا إذن ممن يجب استئذانه وفي النوازل لو كان الابن صبيا فللأب منعه حتى يلتحي ( على الفور )

قال الشامي: قوله ( ممن يجب استئذانه ) كأحد أبويه المحتاج إلى خدمته والأجداد والجدات كالأبوين عند فقدهما وكذا الغريم لمديون لا مال له يقضي به والكفيل لو بالإذن فيكره خروجه بلا إذنهم كما في الفتح وظاهره أن الكراهة تحريمية ولذا عبر الشارح بالوجوب وزاد في البحر عن السير وكذا إن كرهت خروجه زوجته ومن عليه نفقته اه والظاهر أن هذا إذا لم يكن له ما يدفعه للنفقة في غيبته قال في البحر وهذا كله في حج الفرض أما حج النفل فطاعة الوالدين أولى مطلقا كما صرح به الملتقط قوله ( حتى يلتحي ) وإن كان الطريق مخوفا لا يخرج وإن التحى بحر عن النوازل (رد المحتار 2/456)
