HAJJ 2024

“AND COMPLETE THE HAJJ AND UMRAH FOR ALLAH …” (QUR’AN – AL BAQARAH:196)

On the authority of Abdullah Ibn Mas’ood (May Allah be pleased with him): “The Messenger of Allah (Ample peace and blessings be bestowed upon him) said, ‘Keep on doing Hajj and Umrah, for they eliminate poverty and sin just as the bellows eliminate impurities from iron and gold and silver.’” (Tirmidhi: 810, Nasa’i: 2631)
