Assalamu Alaikum.

Here’s an excellent website which covers just about everything you need to know about Hajj. There are fatwas, audios, articles, health tips, etc. They even have a cute flash program on how to do Hajj.

Note: I don’t necessarily agree with everything on the site.

Video: Official Hajj Safety Guide

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

I just found this extremely useful video on Hajj safety, alhamdulillah. It was produced by the Ministry of Hajj, may Allah reward them for the efforts they put into making the Hajj go smoothly for millions of Muslims.

It’s only 15 minutes long but it’s jam-packed with information. A must watch for all wannabe Hajjies.

Documentary: A Practical Guide to Performing Hajj

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

Here’s another nice documentary on how to perform Hajj. It was produced by the Saudi Ministry of Hajj quite a few years ago.

Yes, some things are a bit different now (e.g. the size of the jamraat in Mina) but I think that it should still be a good guide for newbies, insha-Allah.

Article: “Enjoy this House”

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

Going for Umrah or Hajj? Well then, enjoy the sight of the Kabah while you can.

“While you can”, you ask?

Yep.

This short article will help you understand what I mean:

“Enjoy this House”

With Hajj season coming up, I thought it appropriate to present these narrations regarding the Ka’bah from Hamud at-Tuwayjri’s ‘Ithaf al-Jama’ah’ (3/214):

Ibn ‘Umar narrated that the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said: “Enjoy and take advantage of this House, as it has been destroyed twice and will be raised up on the third.”

[Reported by Ibn Hibban in his ‘Sahih’ and the ‘Mustadrak’ of al-Hakim, and adh-Dhahabi agreed on its authentication in his ‘Talkhis’]

Ma’mar said: “It has reached me from some that the Ka’bah will be destroyed three times, and will be raised up on the third or fourth time. So, enjoy and take advantage of it.”

[Reported in the ‘Musannaf’ of ‘Abd ar-Razzaq]

Ka’b said regarding the Ka’bah: “You will destroy it three times, O people. It will then be raised up on the fourth time. So, enjoy and take advantage of it.”

[Reported in the ‘Musannaf’ of ‘Abd ar-Razzaq with a chain that is authentic according to the conditions of al-Bukhari and Muslim]
