The Excellence of Hajj

No. 1185 & 1200 – On the authority of Ibn Abbas in a narration ascribed to the Prophet: -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam:

‘Be regular with (in another narration: follow up) the Hajj and the Umrah since they wipe out poverty and sins, just as the furnace separates the slag from the iron.’

Not Leaving Off Hajj for More than Five Years

No. 1662 – The Messenger – sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said: ‘Indeed Allaah says: Verily I have made a slave’s body healthy and given him adequate livelihood yet five years have passed and he has not come to Me and redeemed himself, as a pilgrim.’

Silsilah-Saheehah

Shaykh Albaani said:

‘Benefit: al-Mundhiri said in ‘al-Targheeb’ (2/134): Narrated by Ibn Hibban in his ‘Saheeh’ and by al-Bayhaqi who said: ‘Alee bin al-Mundhir said: Some of our companions narrated to me saying: Hasan bin Hayyin used to be amazed by this hadeeth and used to implement it. He would love a healthy, prosperous person not to leave off Hajj for five years.’

No. 1264 – On the authority of Jaabir in a narration ascribed to the Prophet: -sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam: ‘The goodness of Hajj is feeding people and good speech.’

No. 1820 – On the authority of Jaabir who said: the Messenger of Allaah – sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam said: ‘Pilgrims for Hajj and Umrah are the delegates of Allaah. He called them and they responded, they asked of Him and He gave them.’
