Deeds that equal the reward of Hajj


Recommended Posts

 (Part 1)
Since Hajj has been cancelled for millions of Muslims across the globe, many people who were intending to go will be feeling disheartened. However, Allah Ta’ala in his infinite mercy has attached the reward of optional Hajj to certain other deeds for the benefit of everyone. We can take consolation from the following narrations which promise the reward of Hajj:
1. Wudu at home before proceeding for Salah with Jamaah
Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam said, “One who makes wudhu and leaves his home to attend the Fard salah in congregation receives the reward of a Haaji in the state of Ihram.” (Sunan Abi Dawud)
2. Salaatul Ishraaq
Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam) said, “Whoever offers his Fajr salah in congregation and then remains seated making the dhikr of Allah until (approximately 15 mins after sunrise) after which he offers two rak’aats of (Ishraq) Salaah, will receive the reward of one complete Hajj and one complete Umrah.” (Sunan Tirmidhi)
3. Serving one’s Parents
Sayyiduna Anas Radhiyallahu Anhu reports that a man came to Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam and said, “I wish to participate in Jihad, but I cannot afford it.” Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam enquired if any of his parents were alive, to which he said, “Yes! My mother is alive.” Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam said, “Show Allah (the good manner) in which you serve her. If you do so, you will be like a: Haji, a Mu’tamir (one doing ‘Umrah) and a Mujaahid (One striving in Allah’s way).” (Abu Ya’la, Tabarani)
4. To recite “Subhanallah” 100 times in the morning and evening
Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi wa Sallam said, “Whoever recites Subhanallah 100 times in the morning and 100 times in the evening is like one who performed Hajj100 times!” (Sunan Tirmidhi)
5. Esha Salah in Congregation
A reliable Tabi’e, Uqbah ibn ‘Abdil Ghaafir (rahimahullah) said, “Offering the Esha salah in congregation equals the reward of Hajj, and the Fajr in congregation equals Umrah.”
