Hajj Fard - Hajj And Umrah Guide



AlSafar Hajj and Umrah Guide
to help you prepare for the sacred pilgrimage...


14. FARAID (THE DUTIES) OF HAJJ: They are three as given below:

(i) To assume Ihram: That is to form Niyyah (intention) to perform Hajj and to recite Talbiyah (Labbaik in full)

(ii) Wuquf at Arafat: To stay at Arafat anytime, even if it be for a moment, from after Zawal (the moment after mid-day) of the 9th Dhul Hijjah to the dawn of the 10th Dhul Hijjah. This is the Rukn ( an indispensable part) of Hajj. To begin Waquf immediately after Zawal is a Sunnah.

(iii) Tawafuz Ziyarah: It may be performed any time from the morning of the 10th Dhul Hijjah till the sunset of the 12th Dhul Hijjah after ritual shaving. This too is Rukn.

(a) It is Wajib to perform every one of these Faraid in the prescribed order at its appointed time and place.

(b) If any of the three Faraid is missed or omitted for any reason, Hajj would not be properly accomplished.

15. WAJIBAT OF HAJJ: Basically they are six. Other related Wajibat will be discussed in detail at their proper place. If any Wajib is left out intentionally or inadvertently, it does not make the Hajj invalid, but Jaza (reparation) will be due for the omission, in the form of Qurbani (animal sacrifice) or Sadaqah (giving food or corn as alms to the poor in a fixed quantity). It may, however, be kept in mind that omitting a Wajib without any excuse is a sin that cannot be absolved by Jaza unless the pilgrim repents and seeks forgiveness of Allah. Therefore, one should be determined not to leave any Wajib.
The above mentioned six Wajibat are as under:

i) Wuqf at Muzdalifah: That is Qiyam (to stay) at the appointed time during the halt at Muzdalifah.

ii) Sa’ey (traversing seven times) between Safa and Marwah: It is Makruh (reprehensible) to delay Sa’ey till after the days prescribed for Qurbani but no Jaza will be due.

iii) Ramyul Jamar: Pelting at Jamarat.

iv) To offer a sacrifice: It is due only on a Qarin or a Mutamatti.

v) Have the head shaved or hair cut short

vi) Tawaful Wada (Farewell Tawaf): It is only due on Afaqi.

16. SUNAN OF HAJJ: A detailed account of the Sunnan is given in the pages that follow. As a general rule, it is bad and objectionable to omit a Sunnah intentionally. No Jaza is due if a pilgrim omits them, but he who performs them is definitely rewarded.
