Not Leaving Off Hajj for More than Five Years

No. 1662 – The Messenger (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

‘Indeed Allaah says: Verily I have made a slave’s body healthy and given him adequate livelihood yet five years have passed and he has not come to Me and redeemed himself, as a pilgrim.’


Shaykh Albaani said:

‘Benefit: al-Mundhiri said in ‘al-Targheeb’ (2/134): Narrated by Ibn Hibban in his ‘Saheeh’ and by al-Bayhaqi who said: ‘Alee bin al-Mundhir said: Some of our companions narrated to me saying: Hasan bin Hayyin used to be amazed by this hadeeth and used to implement it. He would love a healthy, prosperous person not to leave off Hajj for five years.’

No. 1264 – On the authority of Jaabir in a narration ascribed to the Prophet: (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam):

‘The goodness of Hajj is feeding people and good speech.’

No. 1820 – On the authority of Jaabir who said: the Messenger of Allaah (sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

‘Pilgrims for Hajj and Umrah are the delegates of Allaah. He called them and they responded, they asked of Him and He gave them.’

Subhan Allah! May Allah grant us all the means to perform the hajj.. If only once! So many people sign up for hajj in Palestine & wait for years praying they will get a chance.. Some never do, not even once. Some have died still waiting!! wAllahu al-musta3an.
