History of Hajj

 

 Hajj literally means ‘to set out for a place’. Islaamically however it refers to the annual pilgrimage that Muslims make to Makkah with the intention of performing certain religious rites in accordance with the method prescribed by the Prophet Muhammad صلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم.

Hajj and its rites were first ordained by Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى in the time of the Prophet lbraaheem عليه السلام and he was the one who was entrusted by Allaah to build the Ka'aba – the House of Allaah – along with his son Ismaa’eel at Makkah.

Allaah سُبحانه وتعالى described the Ka'aba and its building as follows:

وَإِذْ بَوَّأْنَا لِإِبْرَاهِيمَ مَكَانَ الْبَيْتِ أَن لَّا تُشْرِكْ بِي شَيْئًا وَطَهِّرْ بَيْتِيَ لِلطَّائِفِينَ وَالْقَائِمِينَ وَالرُّكَّعِ السُّجُودِ

And remember when We showed Ibraaheem the site of the [Sacred] House [saying]: Associate not anything [in worship] with Me and purify My House for those who circumambulate it [i.e. perform tawaaf] and those who stand up for prayer and those who bow down and make prostration [in prayer etc.].”
[Al-Hajj 22:26]
