Faithful hearts of Muslims are longing for the lifetime journey of Hajj, which is a great favor Almighty Allah has bestowed upon Muslims so that they can draw closer to Him and have their sins—however numerous and grave they may be—forgiven. Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said, "He who performs Hajj without speaking or committing indecencies (abstains from sensual and sinful acts) will return as free of sins as he was on the day when his mother gave birth to him." (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
In spite of the difficulty of the journey and the abilities required for performing Hajj, either physical or financial, most, if not all, Muslims wholeheartedly wish to perform it and visit the sacred places.
However, before embarking on a long journey, proper preparations should be considered and taken. Prospective pilgrims, therefore, need to get prepared —spiritually, financially, physically, and mentally— for this blessed journey.
For this purpose, Shari`ah is launching this 10+ Fatwas folder shedding light on the prerequisites for Hajj and telling pilgrims how they could get prepared for that sacred journey.
