Upon returning from the Haramain

Al Hamdullillah Was Salaatu Was Salaamu ‘Alaa Rasoolillahi

Ammaa Ba’d:

After our return from our uplifting Five Pillars Umra trip, a journey to the Haramain that has to be one of the most heart affecting five pillars journeys thus far, in terms of the Dawrah ‘Ilmiyah, participation of the Mashaikh of Madinah, the coming together of Ahlus sunnah of various places, the brotherly love felt by all and the general Success of the trip. I mention here some ahaadeeth related to Makka, Madina and that which is present within them. That it may be a reminder for those who know of them and that it may connect the actions of all participants to a virtue or reward related to their righteous action. May Allah accept from us and grant success to all.

The Delegation of Allah!

Upon the authority of Jaabir ibn Abdillah – Radhiyallahu anhumaa – who said that the Messenger of Allah – Sallallahu Alahi wa Salam said: “The Hujaaj (individuals performing Hajj) and the Umaar (individuals performing Umra) and the delegation of Allah! He called them and they responded and they asked of him so he gave to them”

(Collected by Bazaar and declared ‘Hasan’ by Shaikh Al Albaani in Saheeh Al Jaami (3173)

The Virtue of Makka

Upon the authority of Abdullah ibn Uday Az Zuhri – Radhiyallahu Anhu – who said I saw the Messenger of Allah – Sallallahu ‘Alahi Was Sallam – standing in Hazwarah (A place in Makkah) and he said: “Wallahi Indeed you (Makkah) are the best of the lands of Allah and the most beloved land to Allah, and if it were not for the fact that i was expelled from you i would not have left”

(Collected by At Tirmidhi (3925))

The Virtue of Madina

Upon the authority of Ibn Umar – Radhiyallahu ‘Anhu – “Whosoever is able to die in Madina then let him die in it, for indeed i will intercede (in a version “..bear witness) for the one who dies in it”

(Collected by At Tirmidhi (3917) and declared ‘Saheeh’ by Shaikh Al Albaani)

Salaah in Masjid Qubaa

Upon the authority of Aamir ibn Sa’d and Aaisha Bint both said: we heard sa’d (their father) Ibn Abi Waqaas say: “For me to pray two rak’ah in Masjid Qubaa is more beloved to me then to pray in Baitul Maqdis!”

(Collected by Haakim in his Mustadrak (4280) and shaikh Al Albaani agreed with Imaam Haakim and Ad Dhahabi that it is upon the conditions of Bukhaari and muslim. see Ath Thamar Al Mustataab (1/573)

The virtue of travelling for Hajj

Upon the authority of Ibn Umar – Radhiyallahu ‘Anhumaa – who said: “The camel of the one performing Hajj doesn’t lift his leg or place it (on the ground) except that Allah writes for him a reward and removes from him a sin or raises him a level”

(Collected by Baihaqi in ‘Shu’abul Imaan’ (4116) and declared ‘Hasan’ in Saheeh Al Jaami’ (5596))

The virtue of the Talbiyah

Upon the authority of Abu Hurairah – Radhiyallahu ‘Anhu – who said that the messenger of Allah – Sallallahu alaihi was salam: “No one raises his voice with talbiyah except that he is given the glad tidings, and no one makes takbeer (I.e while carrying out the rites) except that he is given the glad tidings!” it was said “Oh messenger of Allah? (the glad tidings) of Jannah? he said ‘Nam (Yes)”

(Collected by Tabaraani in Mu’jam Al Awsat (7779) and declared ‘Hasan’ by shaikh Al Albaani in As Saheehah (1621))

The virtue of Tawaaf

Upon the authority of Abdullah ibn Umar – Radhiyallahu ‘anhu – who said i heard the messenger of Alah – Sallallahu ‘alahi was salam who said: “Whoever makes tawaaf around the house (i.e The Ka’bah) and prays two rak’ah then he will have like unto the reward of freeing a slave”

(Collected by Ibn Maajah (2956) and declared ‘Saheeh’ by Shaikh Al Albaani)

The virtue of the Black Stone

Upon the authority of Abdullah ibn Amr – Radhiyallahu ‘Anhu – who said “If it were not for the filth of the period of Jaahiliyah, there would be no one who is ill who would touch it except that he would be cured, and there is nothing on earth from Jannah other than it”

(Collected by Al Baihaqi in ‘Sunanul Kubraa’ (9012) and declared ‘Saheeh by shaikh Al Albaani in ‘Saheeh Al Jaami’ (5334))

The Yemeni corner and the Corner of the Black stone

Upon the authority of Abdullah ibn Amr – Radhiyallahu ‘anhumaa – the Messenger – Sallallahu alaihi was Sallam “Indeed the corner and the maqaam are two rubies from the rubies of Jannah Allah has removed their light if it were not for the fact that Allah has removed their light they would illuminate that which is between the east and the west”

(Collected by At Tirmidhi (878) and declared ‘Saheeh’ by Sh Al Albaani)

Salaah in Masjid Qubaa

Upon the authority of Aamir ibn Sa’d and Aaisha Bint both said: we heard sa’d (their father) Ibn Abi Waqaas say: “For me to pray two rak’ah in Masjid Qubaa is more beloved to me then to pray in Baitul Maqdis!”

(Collected by Haakim in his Mustadrak (4280) and shaikh Al Albaani agreed with Imaam Haakim and Ad Dhahabi that it is upon the conditions of Bukhaari and muslim. see Ath Thamar Al Mustataab (1/573)

The virtue of seeking Knowledge in Madina

Upon the authority of Abu Hurairah – Radiyallahu anhu – who said i heard the Messenger of Allah – Sallallahu alaihi was salam say: “Whoever comes to this Masjid of mine and he did not come except to learn or to teach something of good then he has the station of a mujaahid in the way of Allah..”

(Collected by Ibn Maajah (227) and declared ‘Saheeh’ By Shaikh Al Albaani in Saheeh Ibn Maajah)

Hajj and Umra will continue even after the coming of Gog and Magog!

Upon the authority of Abu Sa’eed Al Khudri – Radhiyallahu Anhu – who said: “Indeed Hajj and Umra will be made to the house (I.e. The ka’bah) after Gog and Magog appear!”

May Allah bless us to continue to re-visit the holy lands and establish these noble acts of worship and continue to recieve the surrounding benefits until we meet him

    Assalaamu alaykum is this reward for the supererogatory tawaaf, rather than the tawaaf done as part of the hajj or umrah rights?

    BaarakAllaah feek
