Bismi Llāhi r-Raḥmāni r-Raḥīm:
‘وَأَذِّن فِي النَّاسِ بِالْحَجِّ يَأْتُوكَ رِجَالًا’, ‘Wa ‘Adhdhin Fī An-Nāsi Bil-Ĥajji Ya’tūka Rijālāan’, ‘And proclaim to the people the Hajj [pilgrimage]; they will come to you on foot.’ (Qur’ān 22:27). Ṣadaqa Llāhu l-‘aẓīm.
When Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla ordered Ibrahim ‘alayhi s-salam to build the Ka’bah, he said, “There isn’t anyone. What should we do?” He ﷻ said, “Make Tawaf”. There was not anyone except Ibrahim ‘alayhi s-salam and Isma’il ‘alayhi s-salam. Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla told him, “Call the Adhan. Whoever hears it will come here to perform Hajj”. So Ibrahim ‘alayhi s-salam called the Adhan. Whoever hears this Adhan in the spirit world is meant to go to Hajj. Whoever doesn’t hear it is not meant to go. An obstacle or something occurs for that.
Therefore, the matter of Hajj – It is the time for Hajj now. Whoever is able to go to Hajj must go. But of course as we said, it is also the matter of kismet and destiny. Sometimes there is an illness, sometimes there is no money. And most of the time the government sets a quota like now, and you cannot exceed it. Certainly, all of them and this issue of quota are not good. Nevertheless, there is wisdom, because only those who heared the Adhan of Ibrahim ‘alayhi s-salam in the spirit world are meant to go. So such obstacles occur.
However, people should make intention to go and say “I will go when I have money. I will go when I am in good health”. Or they can send someone else on their behalf. When their queue comes and visa is approved, they should make intention to go, and Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla will accept their intention.
“إِنَّمَا الأَعْمَالُ بِالنِّيَّاتِ”, “Innama l-‘aa’malu bi n-niyyat”, “Actions are but by intentions”. [Hadith]. All worship you perform must be with the intention. Therefore, it is important to make intention. When starting a prayer, when fasting, when making ablution or Ghusl; everything is done with the intention. Without intention, it is not done. So it is same with the matter of Hajj. You must make intention to perform Hajj. Who cannot go, if Allah doesn’t allow it, ﷻ allows it, they will go. If He ﷻ Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla will accept as if they have performed Hajj. Allah ﷻ is Arhamu r-Rahimeen (The Most Merciful).
It is the days of Hajj now. Dhu l-Qa’dah is coming to end and Dhu l-Hijjah will start. And then there will be the month of Muharram. These are three of Ashhur ul-Hurum (The Sacred Months) – these are holy months and the months of Hajj. May Allah ﷻ let those who haven’t went yet to go insha’Allah, because – People get angry at this and that. But Allah ‘Azza wa-Jalla made a reason in order to be angry at them. Something gets in their minds and they say, “We cannot make so many people Hajji” and don’t let people in. That is the wisdom of Allah ﷻ. He ﷻ is letting them handle it in such a way. May Allah ﷻ let us handle things in a good way. May we not be from the people who prevent worship and obedience. May He ﷻ make us from those who perform and let others perform worship and obedience insha’Allah.
Wa min Allah at-Tawfiq. Al-Fatiha.
