The Hajj
 
  Obligatory of Hajj: Almighty Allah says:

Hajj to the House of Allah is a duty that mankind owes to Allah who can afford the journey.


 

And proclaim unto mankind the pilgrimage. They will come unto thee on foot and on every lean camel: they will come from every deep ravine.


And complete Hajj and Umrah for Allah.
The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:


 

O mankind, Hajj is made obligatory for you, so perform it.
Hajj for pilgrimage to Makkah is one of the five pillars of Islam.
The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

 


“Islam is built upon five pillars: testifying that there is no true god except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, performing Prayer, paying the Zakah, making the pilgrimage to the Sacred House (Hajj), and fasting the month of Ramadan.” (Reported by Al-Bukhari) Hajj was made obligatory in the 9th year of Hijra. The Holy Prophet sent off 300 Muslims under the leadership of Hazrat Abubakr Siddique (may Allah be pleased with him) to Makkah so that they could perform Hajj.

The following year, 10th Hijra, the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) announced he himself would perform Hajj. He led tens of thousands of Muslims to Hajj that year and demonstrated to Muslims how to perform all the rites and rituals of the Hajj. This Hajj is known in history as Hajjatul Wida’ or Farewell Pilgrimage.
That was the year when it was banned for the Mushrikeen to enter Ka’ba. It was also made unlawful to perform Tawaaf  with naked body.

Wisdom behind Hajj 
The virtues of pilgrimage is emphasized in the Qur'an and Hadith . It is to purify the soul from sins in order to qualify for Allah's mercy in the hereafter. The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said:

 


He who performs Hajj for Allah and does not behave in on obscene manner or acts unlawfully, will return sinless as in the day he was born.
