    Short History of Hajj 81011
    Short History of Hajj Hajj_Journey%5B200x162%5D
    Hajj
    literally
    means 'to set out for a place'. Islamically however it refers
    to the
    annual pilgrimage that Muslims make to Makkah with the intention
    of
    performing certain religious rites in accordance with the method
    prescribed
    by the Prophet Muhammad Short History of Hajj Saws1%5B26x22%5D.
    Hajj
    and its rites were
    first ordained by Allah in the time of the Prophet
    lbrahim [Abraham]
    and he was the one who was entrusted by Allah to
    build the Kaba -
    the House of Allah - along with his son Ismail
    [Ishmael] at Makkah.
    Allah described the Kaba and its building as
    follows:
    <blockquote>"And
    remember
    when We showed Ibrahim the site of the [Sacred] House
    [saying]:
    Associate not anything [in worship with Me and purify My
    House for
    those who circumambulate it [i.e. perform tawaaf] and those
    who stand
    up for prayer and those who bow down and make prostration [in
    prayer
    etc.]."
    [Surah Al-Hajj 22:26]
    </blockquote>After
    building
    the Kaba, Prophet Ibrahim would come to Makkah to perform Hajj
    every
    year, and after his death, this practice was continued by his
    son.
    However, gradually with the passage of time, both the form and the
    goal
    of the Hajj rites were changed. As idolatry spread throughout
    Arabia,
    the Kaba lost its purity and idols were placed inside it. Its
    walls
    became covered with poems and paintings, including one of Jesus
    and
    his mother Maryam and eventually over 360 idols came to be placed
    around
    the Kaba.
    During the
    Hajj period itself, the
    atmosphere around the sacred precincts of the
    Kaba was like a circus.
    Men and women would go round the Kaba naked,
    arguing that they
    should present themselves before Allah in the same
    condition they
    were born. Their prayer became devoid of all sincere
    remembrance of
    Allah and was instead reduced to a series of hand
    clapping, whistling
    and the blowing of horns. Even the talbiah
    was
    distorted by them with the following additions: 'No one is Your
    partner except one who is permitted by you. You are his Master and the
    Master of what he possesses'.
    Sacrifices
    were also
    made in the name of God. However, the blood of the sacrificed
    animals
    was poured onto the walls of the Kaba and the flesh was hung
    from
    pillars around the Kaba, in the belief that Allah demanded the
    flesh
    and blood of these animals.
    Singing,
    drinking,
    adultery and other acts of immorality was rife amongst the
    pilgrims
    and the poetry competitions, which were held, were a major
    part of
    the whole Hajj event. In these competitions, poets would praise
    the
    bravery and splendor of their own tribesmen and tell exaggerated
    tales
    of the cowardice and miserliness of other tribes. Competitions in
    generosity
    were also staged where the chief of each tribe would set up
    huge
    cauldrons and feed the pilgrims, only so that they could become
    well-known
    for their extreme generosity.
    Thus
    the people had
    totally abandoned the teachings of their forefather and
    leader
    Prophet Ibrahim. The House that he had made pure for the worship
    of
    Allah alone, had been totally desecrated by the pagans and the rites
    which
    he had established were completely distorted by them. This sad
    state
    of affairs continued for nearly two and a half thousand years.
    But
    then after this long period, the time came for the supplication of
    Prophet
    Ibrahim to be answered:
    <blockquote>"Our
    Lord!
    Send amongst them a Messenger of their own, who shall recite unto
    them
    your aayaat (verses) and instruct them in the book and the Wisdom
    and
    sanctify them. Verily you are the 'Azeezul-Hakeem [the All-Mighty,
    the
    All-Wise]."
    [Surah Al-Baqarah 2:129]
    </blockquote>
    Short History of Hajj Kaba_old1-1%5B200x208%5D

    Sure
    enough, a man by the name of Muhammad ibn 'Abdullaah Short History of Hajj Saws1%5B26x22%5D
    was born in the very city that
    Prophet Ibrahim had made this
    supplication centuries earlier. For
    twenty-three years, Prophet
    Muhammad
    Short History of Hajj Saws1%5B26x22%5D
    spread the message of
    Tawheed [true monotheism] - the same message that
    Prophet Ibrahim and
    all the other Prophets came with - and established
    the law of Allah
    upon the land. He expended every effort into making
    the word of Allah
    supreme and his victory over falsehood culminated in
    the smashing of
    the idols inside the Kaba which once again became the
    universal
    center for the worshippers of the one True God.
    Not
    only
    did the Prophet rid the Kaba of all its impurities, but he also
    reinstated
    all the rites of Hajj which were established by Allah's
    Permission,
    in the time of Prophet Ibrahim. Specific injunctions in the
    Quran
    were revealed in order to eliminate all the false rites which had
    become
    rampant in the pre-Islamic period. All indecent and shameful
    acts
    were strictly banned in Allah's statement:
    <blockquote>"There
    is to be no lewdness nor wrangles during Hajj."
    [Surah al-Baqarah
    2:197]
    </blockquote>Competitions
    among poets
    in the exaltations of their forefathers and their
    tribesmen's
    achievements were all stopped. Instead, Allah told them:
    <blockquote>"And
    when
    you have completed your rites [of Hajj] then remember Allah as you
    remember
    your forefathers; nay with a more vigorous remembrance."
    [Surah
    al-Baqarah 2:200]
    </blockquote>Competitions
    in
    generosity were also prohibited. Of course, the feeding of the poor
    pilgrims
    was still encouraged as this was done during the time of
    Prophet
    Ibrahim but Allah commanded that the slaughtering of the
    animals
    which was done for this purpose should be done seeking the
    pleasure
    of Allah rather than fame and the praise of the people. He
    said:
    <blockquote>"So
    mention
    the name of Allah over these animals when they are drawn up in
    lines.
    Then, when they are drawn on their sides [after the slaughter],
    eat
    thereof and feed the beggar who does not ask, and the beggar who
    asks."
    [Surah
    al-Hajj 22:36]
    </blockquote>As
    for the deplorable
    practice of spattering blood of the sacrificed
    animals on the walls
    of the Kaba and hanging their flesh on alters,
    then Allah clearly
    informed them that:
    <blockquote>"It is neither their meat
    nor their blood that reaches Allah, but it is Taqwaa (piety) from you
    that reaches Him."
    [Surah al-Hajj 22:37]
    </blockquote>The
    Prophet Short History of Hajj Saws1%5B26x22%5D
    also put a stop to the practice
    of circling the Kaba in a state of
    nudity and the argument that the
    pagans put forward to justify this
    ritual was sharply rebutted in
    Allah's question:
    <blockquote>"Say: Who has forbidden
    the adornment [i.e. clothes] given by Allah which He has produced for
    His Slaves?"
    [Surah al-A'raaf 7:32]
    </blockquote>
    Short History of Hajj Begger%5B175x197%5D

    Another
    custom
    which was prohibited through the Quran was that of setting off
    for
    Hajj without taking any provisions for the journey. In the
    pre-Islamic
    period, some people who claimed to be mutawakkiloon (those
    having
    complete trust in Allah) would travel to perform Hajj begging
    for
    food through the whole journey. They considered this form of
    behavior
    a sign of piety and an indication of how much faith they had
    in
    Allah. However Allah told mankind that to have sufficient provisions
    for
    the journey was one of the preconditions for making Hajj. He said:
    <blockquote>"And
    take a provision [with you] for the journey, but the best provision is
    at-Taqwaa (piety)."
    [Surah al-Baqarah 2:197]
    </blockquote>In
    this
    way, all the pre-Islamic practices, which were based on ignorance,
    were
    abolished and Hajj was once more made a model of piety, fear of
    Allah,
    purity, simplicity and austerity. Now, when the pilgrims reach
    the
    Kaba, they no longer find the carnivals and the frolic and
    frivolity
    that had once occupied the minds of the pilgrims there
    before. Now,
    there is the remembrance of Allah at every step and every
    action and
    every sacrifice was devoted to Him alone. It was this kind
    of Hajj
    that was worthy of the reward of paradise, as the Prophet Short History of Hajj Saws1%5B26x22%5D said: "The reward for an
    accepted Hajj is nothing less than paradise."
    May
    Allah grant us all the ability to visit His House and perform the Hajj
    in the manner of the Prophet Muhammad Short History of Hajj Saws1%5B26x22%5D. Aameen.
