Hajj definition is it is the fifth pillar of Islam. All Muslims must perform it.

Question:

Who Can Perform Hajj in Islam??

Answer:

In Hadiths:

“Whosoever dies without performing Hajj while he is not under some difficult circumstances – whereby it’s impossible to go for Hajj. Or is not allowed to leave because of an unjust ruler, or is chronically sick – or seriously sick during the Hajj season – then let him die if he wants as a Jew or a Christian.”

[Related by ad-Daarimi and al-Bayhaqi]

He should:

1) Physically and mentally perfect

2) Must be able to afford all the expenses for this pilgrimage.

Allah Says in Quran:

“And Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah) to the House (Ka’bah) is a duty that mankind owes to Allah, those who can afford the expenses (for one’s conveyance, provision, and residence)”

(Aal ‘Imraan 3:97)

3) So, one has to fulfill all of their duties and responsibilities. Allah Commanded him according to Islam ( good development of their children, give them a good education, fulfill their legal demands, get them married, etc.).

4) It is not obligatory to the slave, so they should be free.

5) Be a Muslim.

Quran Says About Hajj:

In the Quran, Allah says:

“And nothing prevents their contributions from being accepted from them except that they disbelieved in Allah and His Messenger.”

(al-Tawbah 9:54)

Age For Hajj:

6) Be old enough; non-pubescent children don’t need to perform it. The Holy Prophet (SAW) said:

“There are three kinds of people who are not held responsible for their actions: The sleeping person until he wakes up, the child until he reaches the age of puberty, and the mentally ill until he becomes sane.”

[Related by the Five and ad-Daarimi] 

So, all Muslim women and men must acknowledge all the rules and regulations before performing this pilgrimage.
