The Sunnah of meeting the Haji
Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam has said: “The Haji and one who performs Umrah are the Ambassadors of Allah. If they beseech Him, He would respond to them, and if they seek His forgiveness, He would forgive them.”(Ibn Majah)
Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam has said: “When you meet the Haji, greet him, shake his hands and instruct him to seek forgiveness for you before he enters his home, for undoubtedly he is forgiven.” (Ahmed)
Sayyiduna Abdullah ibn Umar Radhiyallahu Anhu reports that Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam said the following to a returning Haji:
قَبِلَ اللهُ حَجَّك ، وَغَفَرَ ذَنْبَكَ ، وَاَخْلَفَ نَفَقَتَكَ
Qabilallahu hajjaka, wa ghafara dhambaka, wa akhlafa nafaqatak
“May Allah accept your Haj, may He forgive your sins and may He replace your expenditure.” (Tabarani)
Hajj affords the best training grounds for the revival of one's faith and purity of character. It is the most sublime manifestation of the universal brotherhood of the Muslim Ummah. It is a journey of intensified devotion and discipline.
A Haji is therefore expected to return as a transformed person.
When Hasan Basri (R.A.) was asked, “What constitutes a Hajj-e-Mabroor?”He replied, “That you return from Hajj turning your back to this world and facing towards the hereafter.”(Al-Tabsirah)
May the Almighty accept your Hajj, make it a source of your salvation in this world and the hereafter and grant you the ability to say “Labbaik” to the call of Allah at all times, Ameen.
