Allah commanded our father Ibraaheem saying,
“And proclaim to mankind the Hajj (pilgrimage). They will come to you on foot and on every lean camel, they will come from every deep and distant (wide) mountain highway (to perform Hajj). [Soorah al-Hajj :27]
“And proclaim to mankind the Hajj” meaning, announce the pilgrimage to mankind and call them to perform pilgrimage to this House which We have commanded you to build. It was said that Ibraaheem said: “O Lord, how can I convey this to people when my voice will not reach them” It was said: “Call them and We will convey it.” So Ibraaheem stood up and said, “O mankind! Your Lord has established a House so come on pilgrimage to it.”
It is said that the mountains lowered themselves so that his voice would reach all the regions of the earth, and those who were still in their mothers’ wombs and their fathers’ loins would hear the call. The response came from everyone in the cities, deserts and countryside, and those whom Allah has decreed will make the pilgrimage, until the Day of Resurrection: “At Your service, O Allah, at Your service.” This is a summary of the narrations from Ibn ‘Abbaas, Mujaahid, `Ikrimah, Sa’id bin Jubayr and others among the Salaf. And Allah knows best. This was recorded by Ibn Jarir and by Ibn Abi Hatim at length. [Tafseer Ibn Kathir]
With the time of Hajj upon us, our Shaykh Hasan al-Banna (hafidhahullah) will enlighten us with respect to the story of Hajj according to the Book, the Sunnah and the narrations of our Salaf-us-Saalih.
We ask Allah to accept the Hajj of all our brothers and sisters and that He Al-Ghafoor, Ar-Raheem forgives us our sins and shortcomings.
