AL-HajjL Pilgrimage to the house of Allah(Swt) in Makkah, Dr Shahid Sissiqi, Ottawa
Hajj is obligatory on those who possess the money for the journey. This very important pillar
of Islam, manifest a unique unity by dispelling all
differences, cultural or socio-economic, that may exist among Muslim brothers and sisters.
Muslims from all corners of the world responder
The call of Hajj in one voice and language:
LABBAIK ALLA HUMMA LABBAIK( Here I am at
Your service O Lord!), dresses in the same attire.
In Hajj there’s is an exercise of strict self discipline
and control where not only sacred things are revered, but even the life of plants and birds is made inviolable so that everything lives in safety.
“And he that venerates the sacred things of God,
It shall be better for him with his Lord”(22:30),
“And he that venerates the way marks of God,
It surely is from devotion of the heart.”(22:32).
Pilgrimage gives an opportunity to all Muslims
from all groups, classes, organizations, and Governments from all over the Muslim world to
meet annually I n a great congress where the
timing of this congregation yhas been predetermined by Allah(swt).
The invitation to attend is open to every Muslim
and no one has the power to bar any one. Every
Muslim who attends is guaranteed infull saand
freedom as long as he himself does not violate other safety.
Thus worship in Islam, whether ritual or non-ritual, trains the individual in such a way that he loves his Creator most and thereby gains an unyielding will and spirit to wipe out all evil and
Oppression from the human society and make the world of God dominant in the world.
