Renew your devotion through Hajj!

[2:125]

We have rendered the shrine (the Ka`aba) a focal point for the people, and a safe sanctuary. You may use Abraham’s shrine as a prayer house. We commissioned Abraham and Ismail: “You shall purify My house for those who visit, those who live there, and those who bow and prostrate.”

As per the word of Allah that is the Quran, Allah gives the humanity the Ka`aba, a focal point and a safe sanctuary for the people who have tremendous faith and complete submission in Him. Hajj alone has the power to purify a person with all kinds of sin and convert him into a newborn without any iniquity.

“And Hajj to the Kabah is a duty that mankind incur to Allah, those who can afford the expenses”.

Hajj is considered as one of five pillars of Islam. Allah instructs every Muslims to perform Hajj at least once in a lifetime, if they are fit physically, mentally and financially for it. A mere preparation of hajj heightens one’s love for Allah as it is solely done for pleasing Allah. With one’s heart yearning to achieve the goal, one turn out to be purer in both thoughts and deeds.

They ask you about the phases of the moon! Say, “They provide a timing device for the people, and determine the time of Hajj.” It is not righteous to beat around the bush;* righteousness is attained by upholding the commandments and by being straightforward. You shall observe GOD, that you may succeed.

Hajj enables a person to synchronise their inner self with the universe. Every tiny bit of the Universe submits towards Allah’s grace. Each of them obeys the rule set by Him without any mistake. Like them, humankind is also instructed to obey Allah. Feeling the brotherhood shared between two people is also important as it teaches to treat each other well. Wearing the same cloths, following the same routine makes a person feels the similarity and helps them to love each other more. Love, belongingness, the essence of understanding beyond the words alone can unite Humankind for a better future.
Hajj will also act as a cleaning process that allows human to take a significant rest from their hasty daily routine and surrender themselves to Allah for seeking forgiveness. Human beings are not perfect. In contrast, they are all full of sins. Hajj acts as a shower that washes away every transgression and makes a person just like a newborn baby with no sin. Thus, Hajj brings pleasure that is beyond the materialistic world. It allows a person to attain its true nature that is to be in peace.
