Is there a Hajj Akbar?
If Arafat is on a Friday, then
many describe it as Hajj Akbar (Big Hajj). There is no big
or small Hajj. There is only one Hajj. Every year is Hajj Akbar. The
10th day of Dhul Hijja is described in The Qur'an as
Is it a requirement to enter Masjid Al Haram from the Bab as-Salaam
There is no such requirement. You
can enter from any of the many gates.
3. Can I
smoke when I'm in Ihram?
No. Try to give up this habit for the good of your
health and the well-being of your family. Many chain smokers have
returned from the Hajj as non-smokers for good. Alhamdulillah.
I stone the jamr'at, is it necessary to hit the target?
No, it is not a requirement to hit the wall.
5. Can I
perform the Hajj every year?
There is no rule
prohibiting anyone from performing the Hajj more than once.
If you plan to perform it yearly, you are obviously financially well
endowed. You should consider the following. One, there are other
things you can do in the way of Allah. Consider contributing your Hajj
trip funds to uplift downtrodden Muslims. Two, with nearly 2 1/2 million
people converging in The Sacred Land, the Saudi
authorities have understandably imposed quotas. Have a heart for
those waiting in line to perform the Hajj for the first time. Allow a
reasonable time gap before going to perform the Hajj again.
it a must for a wife to seek her husband's permission to perform the
Yes. A husband is strongly advised not to
object as his wife is seeking permission to perform a duty commanded by
The Almighty. Obedience to the command of The Almighty supersedes
everything else, including a husband's objection.
7. More tawaaf or more
If you're NOT a local resident, do more
tawaaf as Masjid Al Haram is the only place where you can do tawaaf.
8. Multiple Umrah during Hajj/Umrah?
There is no basis for this in the Sunnah or
in the practice of the Sahabah.
ALLAH KNOWS BEST.
