Allaah, in whose name I begin, is the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful

Allaah [Ta'alaa] says in the Quraan:
"Hajj [pilgrimage to Makkah to the house [Ka`bah] is a duty that mankind owes to Allaah, those who can afford the expenses"
[Soorah Al `Imraan: ]

Hajj as stated in Soorah Imraan, is a pilgrimage to the House of the Ka’bah and is a duty that mankind owes to Almighty Allaah, those who are able and can afford the expense. Hajj is one of the main pillars of Islaam that occurs in the 12th month of the Islamic Calendar, and it occurs mainly from days 8 to the 12th of this month. Hajj was declared compulsory in 9 A.H. It is an absolutely mandatory obligation. Hajj is compulsory only once in a lifetime. Hajj goes back to Ibraaheem [Alaiehis-Salaam] during the 7th century and was officially considered a pillar of Islaam through our Beloved Prophet Muhammad-ur- Rasoolal- Laah
 [Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Sallam].

Abu Hurairah reported that the Messenger
[peace be upon him]
"He who performs Hajj for Allaah's pleasure and avoids all lewdness and sins will return after Hajj free from all sins as he was the day his mother gave birth to him."
The literal meaning of "Hajj" is to intend or plan for and according to Shar'ee terminology it means to stop at 'Arafaat [the vast expense near Makkah where major Hajj rite is performed on 9th Zillhaj after wearing"Ihraam"[unstitched clothes] and to perform circumambulation of "Ka'bah" [the House of Allaah].

Significances and excellence's, of the Hajj:

Hajj is the best means to strengthen religious communication and coordination among the Muslims’ of the whole world hailing from different countries with their separate nationality, race, language and color and to collect them on a single platform thereby making them rally round the banner of "Kalimah Tauheed" [the Code of Oneness of Allaah Subhanhu Wa Ta'alaa] which is the pivot of Islaam.

The simple unstitched white clothing which Prophet Aadam [Alaiehis-Salaam] wore is proposed for Haajis so that the Muslims who all believe in One Allaah, one Messenger, one Book and one Ka'bah look alike sans any social ranking and status thereby to demonstrate outward religious harmony and cohesion too.

It project the glory and truthfulness of Islaam besides earning believers the benefits and gains of the air, land and sea travels.

Most of Hajj's sites are either prominent symbols of Allaah Almighty or have attachments with the Messengers and Prophets which refresh the memory of the sacred traditions and remind of the events of Divine blessings and mercy attached with these signs.
