Hajj is a lifetime journey for which the faithful hearts are longing. Indeed, it is a great favor Almighty Allah has bestowed upon His people so that they can draw closer to Him and have their sins â€”no matter how numerous and grave they may beâ€” forgiven.
Hajj offers pilgrims a unique chance to start a new leaf by maintaining good relationship with Allah, with their own selves, with people, and with all other creatures. This fact is inspired by the Prophet's hadith, "Whoever performs Hajj and does not have sexual relations (with his wife), nor commits sins, nor disputes unjustly (during Hajj), then he returns from Hajj as pure and free from sins as on the day on which his mother gave birth to him.'' (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)
