Hajj Qiraan (Ahadith 1403 – 1404)


Hadith no. 1402 (below) is a repeat. Read it here.

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 702:

Narrated ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa): We set out with Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) in the year of his Last Hajj and we mended (the Ihram) for ‘Umra. Then the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “Whoever has a Hadi with him should assume Ihram for both Hajj and ‘Umra, and should not finish it till he performs both of the them (Hajj and ‘Umra).” When we reached Mecca, I had my menses. When we had performed our Hajj, the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) sent me with ‘Abdur-Rahman (radiallaahu `anhu) to Tan’im and I performed the ‘Umra. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) said, “This is in lieu of your missed ‘Umra.” Those who had assumed Ihram for ‘Umra performed Tawaf (between Safa and Marwa) and then finished their Ihram. And then they performed another Tawaf (between Safa and Marwa) after returning from Mina. And those who had assumed lhram for Hajj and ‘Umra to get her ( Hajj-Qiran ) performed only one Tawaf (between Safa and Marwa).

Today’s Ahadith:

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 703:

Narrated Nafi’:

‘Abdullah bin ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar and his riding animal entered the house of Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu). He (the son of Ibn ‘Umar) said, “I fear that this year a battle might take place between the people and you might be prevented from going to the Ka’ba. I suggest that you should stay here.” Ibn Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) said, “Once Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) set out for the pilgrimage, and the pagans of Quraish intervened between him and the Ka’ba. So, if the people intervened between me and the Ka’ba, I would do the same as Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) had done . . . “Verily, in Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) you have a good example.” Then he added, “I make you a witness that I have intended to perform Hajj along with ‘Umra.” After arriving at Mecca, Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) performed one Tawaf only (between Safa and Marwa).

Volume 2, Book 26, Number 704:

Narrated Nafi’:

Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) intended to perform Hajj in the year when Al-Hajjaj attacked Ibn Az-Zubair. Somebody said to Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu), “There is a danger of an impending war between them.” Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) said, “Verily, in Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) you have a good example. (And if it happened as you say) then I would do the same as Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) had done. I make you witness that I have decided to perform ‘Umra.” Then he set out and when he reached Al-Baida’, he said, “The ceremonies of both Hajj and ‘Umra are similar. I make you witness that I have made Hajj compulsory for me along with ‘Umra.” He drove (to Mecca) a Hadi which he had bought from (a place called) Qudaid and did not do more than that. He did not slaughter the Hadi or finish his Ihram, or shave or cut short his hair till the day of slaughtering the sacrifices (10th Dhul-Hijja). Then he slaughtered his Hadi and shaved his head and considered the first Tawaf (of Safa and Marwa) as sufficient for Hajj and ‘Umra. Ibn ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) said, “Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) did the same.”

Ibn `Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) performed Hajj Qiraan according to this incident. And when he said that he will do as the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) did, he meant that he’ll perform Hajj Qiraan like the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) did the year after he was stopped at Hudaibiyah.

The one who is doing Qiraan, i.e., combining Hajj and ‘Umrah, only has to do one tawaaf and one saa‘i, like the one who is doing Ifraad (Hajj only).

The tawaaf that is obligatory in his case is tawaaf al-ifaadah. With regard to tawaaf al-qudoom, it is Sunnah. In his case, saa‘i may be done after tawaaf al-qudoom, or he may delay it and do it after tawaaf al-ifaadah. This is what is indicated by the saheeh Sunnah and is the view of most of the scholars.

Upon Reaching Makkah, First Thing (Hadith No. 1383)


Volume 2, Book 26, Number 683:

Narrated ‘Urwa:

‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa) said, “The first thing the Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) did on reaching Mecca, was the ablution and then he performed Tawaf of the Ka’ba and that was not ‘Umra (alone), (but Hajj-al-Qiran). ‘Urwa added: Later Abu Bakr (radiallaahu `anhu) and ‘Umar (radiallaahu `anhu) did the same in their Hajj.” And I performed the Hajj with my father Az-Zubair (radiallaahu `anhu), and the first thing he did was Tawaf of the Ka’ba. Later I saw the Muhajirin (Emigrants) and the Ansar doing the same. My mother (Asma’ (radiallaahu `anhaa)) told me that she, her sister (‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa)), Az-Zubair (radiallaahu `anhu) and such and such persons assumed Ihram for ‘Umra, and after they passed their hands over the Black Stone Corner (of the Ka’ba) they finished the Ihram. (i.e. After doing Tawaf of the Ka’ba and Sa’i between Safa-Marwa.

This is Tawaaf al-qudoom (tawaaf of arrival) for Hajj. This is done by the pilgrim who has entered ihraam for Hajj and by the pilgrim who is doing Qiraan, i.e., joining ‘Umrah and Hajj, when he reaches the Ka’bah. It is one of the obligatory duties or Sunnahs of Hajj – there is a difference of scholarly opinion.
