The Hajj Pilgrimage

The Hajj is the fifth element of Islam. It becomes obligatory on him who, after meeting his necessary expenses, is left with sufficient surplus to meet the expenses of the Hajj, provided that passage is safe and free from any danger to life and he is healthy. The pilgrim should arrange for all the needs of his family or take them with him on the Hajj Pilgrimage. A man who does not accept the Hajj to be an obligatory duty (Farz) is an unbeliever. He is a great sinner on whom the Hajj is binding, yet he does not discharge this Farz deliberate.
 The Holy Prophet is reported to have said: Allah does not care for a person at all whether he dies a Jew or a Christian, if he does not perform the Hajj, although he has the necessary provisions of food and conveyance for the journey.

  1. Hajj is the 5th pillar of Islam. Hajj is a yearly Islamic journey to Mecca, the holiest city for Muslims. There are three faraid of Hajj. Leaving any of these completely void your Hajj.
