The Importance and Virtues of Hajj

The meaning of Hajj:

The month of Dhu al-Hijjah falls at the end of all Islamic months. That is, it is the last month of the Islamic calendar. The first ten days of Dhu al-Hijjah are very important. The specific acts of worship performed by those who come to visit the city of Mecca are called Hajj in Islamic terms and the acts of worship performed by them are called the rites of Hajj. In Islam, Hajj is a once-in-a-lifetime obligation for everyone who can afford it. In the Quran, Hajj is the last and fifth pillar of Islam

The rituals of hajj:

It begins with the rites of Hajj from the 8th of Dhul-Hijjah. The first day of Hajj is called Yom al-Tarwiyah and it is the day of Zaljaj. On this day, the pilgrims perform Ghusl and Ihram. Reading the prayers of Wadi Manah is also included in this day. The second day of Hajj is the day of ‘Arafah and it is the day of the important day of Dhul-Hijjah. The second day of Haj is more important than the rest of the days. This is the day of forgiveness and it is called the day of ‘Arafah. On the same day, the great member of Hajj (Waqf Arafat) is performed. On that day, the pilgrims leave for Arafat. Waqf recites the prayer of Arafat and finally leaves for Muzdalifah and stays in the evening.

The third day of Hajj is called the day of Nahar, and Eid-ul-Azha is celebrated on the same day, but due to the busyness of the pilgrims and the importance of the rituals of Hajj on that day, the pilgrims offer Eid prayers. These are the programs of the day. Waqf is obligatory in Muzdalifah from Fajr prayers to sunrise on the 10th of Zilhaj. After this, there is a departure towards the mouth, and Jamrah Aqaba (ie the evil Shaitaan is stoned to death). After that, the sacrifice is made.

The fourth, fifth and Sixth day of Haj, that is 11, 12 13 which is called the days of Ramah. And on this day, after completing the Tawaf pilgrimage, the Tawaf farewell is performed and the Dua is offered while leaving the Ka’bahs.


10 Zill Hajjah day of Eid-ul-Adha:

Eid-ul-Adha is one of the major Islamic events celebrated around the year. Eid marks the end of the hajj which is a five-day religious journey to the grand mosque (Khana Ka’ba) of mecca in Saudi Arabia. this Eid is also known as the festival of sacrifice. this festival is based on Ibrahim’s devotion to sacrificing his son. Muslims around the world complete the Holy ritual along with the sacrifice of an animal n this festival. the celebrations last for 3 days, unlike Eid ul Fitr which is celebrated for one day. people celebrate this festival with great happiness and joy and send their warm wishes and offer prayers in the mosque.

Benefits of Hajj:

There are many benefits to performing Hajj. It washes away sins, just as water cleanses the dirt. This is an act of worship in which the spirit of all other acts of worship is present. For example, how zakat money is spent? Psychological desires are controlled by fasting, and this is also done in Hajj. Prayers in Haj are regularly performed with Takbir Oli. On the occasion of Hajj, the spirit of global unity of Muslims comes to the fore.

Why Ramadan is Celebrated?

Ramadan Celebration:

Ramadan is a holy month. This is why Muslims are to help the poor and needy and it is celebrated to feel sympathy for them. And people are celebrated for focusing on their religion and their relationship with Allah. This month is celebrated by the Islamic community because of this month’s great importance in Islam. It is obligatory to fast this month. These fasts are observed before Fajr and are opened after sunset Celebrating Ramadan is an honor to the Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W) and a way to control ourselves. The second reason for celebrating Ramadan is that the Qur’an was revealed in this month.

Importance of Ramadan:

The month of Ramadan is a month of blessings. It is the month for a Muslim to become a Muslim and make his deeds pleasing to Allah, to please Allah through wealth to the rich, and to do good to the poor in spite of their poverty. When this month comes, the atmosphere becomes light. Gives a wave of happiness to the believers and older people are driven by good deeds with sincerity. The children see them and join them in worship.

The importance and blessings of Ramadan can be gauged from this when Ramadan comes; the devils are imprisoned by the command of Allah. The gates of Heaven are opened and the gates of hell are banded. A demon whose work, men forbids good deeds and says evil deeds so, in this blessed month, cruel and dirty deeds are stopped. Therefore, the strongest proof of this is that most sinners avoid sins and worship Allah.

The Virtue & Worship of Ramadan:

In the Islamic, Calendar Ramadan is the 9th month. Ramadan is very important in Quran and Hadith. Ramadan is a blessed month that is mentioned in the Quran. In Quran, Allah says: The Quran was revealed in the month of Ramadan. (Surah Al-Baqarah Verses 185). And Verses 9 of Surah Al-Qadr says that one night (Laylatul al-Qadr) comes in this month which is better than a thousand nights. Hazrat Salman (RA) narrates that Muhammad said the last date of Shaban There is a month above you which is a blessed month. This night is more than a thousand nights. Allah made fasting obligatory in this month and made the night stay in it a reward.

When was the Quran Revealed?

As everyone knows, the Quran is the word of Allah and it is safe. The Quran was revealed two times, once in Bait-ul-Ma’moor (which is the place of worship of the angels). And the second time it was revealed to Hazrat Muhammad (S.A.W.W) little by little over a period of 23 years. The revelation of the Quran two times is clear from the style of the Quran itself. Numerous narrations have been narrated from Hazrat Abdullah bin Abbas, The summary of which is that the Qur’an was first revealed to the whole sky at once, and the second time to Muhammad (S.A.W.W).

The purpose of revealing the Quran two times was to evaluate the glory and glory of the Quran. And the angels were told that this is the last book of Allah which is to be sent down for the guidance of the people of the earth. Now the question is when was the Qur’an revealed? According to the correct view, the revelation of the Quran took place on a single night of Ramadan. But there is no definite tradition as to what night it was. According to some scholars, the night of Ramadan is 17 known from some says 19, and from some narrations says 27 Ramdan. In Quran Surah Al Baqrah verse 185, Allah says: In the month of Ramadan, the Quran was revealed as a guide for the people in which are clear signs of right guidance and a standard (between truth and falsehood).

Beginning of revelation to Muhammad (S.A.W.W):

The first verses that were revealed to Muhammad were the first 5 verses of Surah Al-Alaq. The first verses that were revealed to Muhammad were the first 5 verses of Surah Al-Alaq. In Sahih Bukhari, Hazrat Aysha (R.A) narrates this incident as follows: Muhammad (S.A.W.W) had true dreams before revelation. After that Muhammad (S.A.W.W) became interested in solitude.

During this time Muhammad spent many nights in Ghar-e-Hira and worshiped.  Until one day Muhammad (S.A.W.W) through Hazrat Jibril (AS) received revelation from Allah. Beyond this, Muhammad himself says that Gabriel said: Iqra (Read) then prophet Muhammad said, “I am not educated.” Upon this answer of Muhammad, (S.A.W.W) Gabriel (A.S) grabbed him, and released him. then said: Iqra (Read),  then he gave the same answer. And Muhammad (S.A.W.W) said: then he again grabbed me for the third time and released me.

Then Gabriel recited the first 5 verses of Surah Al-Alaq and he asked Muhammad (S.A.W.W) to read. Read, (Oh Prophet) in the Name of your Allah Who created. Who created man from a clinging clot. Read! And your Allah is the Most Generous. Who taught with pen. He taught humans what they did not know. (Surah Al- Alaq Verses 1 to 5.) This period is called the period of revelation. Three years after the revelation, the Hazrat Gabriel (A.S) appeared again between heaven and earth. He (Jibraeel A.S) recited the verses of Surah Mudassir and after that, the same series of revelations continued for 23 years.

Purpose of the revelation of the Quran:

The purpose of the Qur’an is to guide mankind to the straight path. And also its purpose is also to translate the other three Holy books (Torah Zaboor & Injeel) because the previously revealed books kept changing with time and circumstances.

The real purpose of the revelation of the Quran is to guide humanity but even then we read it for the sake of reward, which is why we are deprived of the guidance of Allah. And ignorance is upon us. By the grace is Allah, He has given us such a book if we make it a real guide in our life So the possibility of error in life is never possible. Muhammad (S.A.W.W)said In his last sermon: I am leaving two things between you, if you hold fast to it you will never go astray and if you leave it you will go astray, And then he said: One of them is Quran and one is my Sunnah.

Nowhere in the Qur’an is it written that kiss it, apply to eyes and place it on a high place. Yes, this is a recommended method and comes with respect which no one can deny. Therefore, it is necessary to read the Qur’an with understanding so that one can understand the real purpose of the revelation of this book.

Quran is the source of guidance:

Allah has revealed the Qur’an to us for guidance at the very beginning of the Qur’an, The guidance of the Qur’an is very comprehensive. One of the characteristics of Islam is that if you look at the religion of Musa (A.S), you will find a few commandments. If you look at the religion of Isa (A.S), you will find ethics. But completely where there are rules and there is also morality, that is the Quran. And it is not that this book is giving guidance in one field of man and has left the other field. You will not see any space in this Book. Understand that there is not a single moment in the book from the purpose of life of man to the fulfillment of his purpose of life in which the Qur’an has not given guidance. Allah has said: Alif-Laam-Meem.

This is a book that no doubt, Guidance for those who fear Allah (Surah Al Baqra Verses 1 to 2). Quran Contains Everything a man needs to know. and this is a guide for its readers. Because there is no possibility of any kind of error or misinterpretation in this. The Quran is a light for those who distinguish between right and wrong and guide them. It is said in Surah Al-Anfal, referring to the true believers: And when the verses of Allah are recited to them, they increase their faith. (Surah Al-Anfal Verse No 2).  All the chapters of this book shed light on all human aspects and confirm the earlier holy books.

What Does the Quran Say about the Bible?

In verse 3 of Surah Al-Imran of the Qur’an, Allah says: He has sent down to you the Book of Truth confirming the previous books, and He has sent down the Torah and the Gospel.  In another place Allah says: And following in the footsteps of these Prophets, we sent Isa bin Maryam Those who confirmed the Torah, the first book of theirs and gave them the Gospel, which is a guide and a light and the Torah which confirms the Book before it, and guides and advises those who guard (against evil). { Surah Al-Maida:46}. The term Bible is not found in the Qur’an.

In Quran Bible is called the Injeel which was revealed to Prophet Isa (A.S). Except for the Qur’an, all other books have been distorted, so the Qur’an says that it is necessary to believe in these books but not to follow them. Because over time these books were changed. But the Qur’an bears witness to these books, and also Quran testifies to the nations upon which they are revealed.

Introduction of the Bible:

The Injeel (Gospel) is an Arabic word that means “Good news” that is called the Bible in modern times. The Gospel is the third inspired book revealed to Prophet Isa (A.S). And the Old Testament of the Bible was completed around 165 BC. The Injeel is never referred to by the Quran as a ‘Kitab’, (87:16) or ‘Kitabu Isa’ (Book of Isa), but plainly as ‘Injeel’.

Difference between Quran and Bible:

The Quran is the only book having the title “Kalamullah” Quran Comes from the highlights level of all his names with the title of Allah of the realms. Quran is a universal book addressing all humankind, all the positive and religious sciences as seeds, past and the future generations. Allah informed through ayahs to protect Quran and that no holy book shall be revealed after the Quran.

And Allah revealed the book of the Bible which meets the needs of a particular tribe, a particular age. The only people in the Bible who are mentioned are the people of that time. Bible treated only specific subjects such as Du’a advice etc. The Bible has been distorted over time this is the head of the Christian versions which has more than 200,000 differences.

Who Wrote Quran?

The Qur’an is the last inspired book sent down by Allah to our Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W). Quran is the only book Which Allah Himself has taken the responsibility of preserving. Therefore, Allah says in Surah Al-Hijr:  Surely we have sent down this Quran and surely we are its guardians. (Ayat 9). According to this verse, there is no one who can change even one letter of the Quran (As was changed in the previous Holy books). This book is safe till the Day of Resurrection.  If we look at the order of the Qur’an, then the Qur’an exists in the same order that Allah gave to Muhammad (S.A.W.W) and then the Sahaba (R.A) wrote in the and continued to be written in the same order.

History of Quran:

The Quran was revealed to Muhammad (S.A.W.W) over a period of 23 years. Any verses were revealed by Allah, they would be memorized and these verses were written on various materials such as paper, cloth, bone fragments, and leather. In the time of Caliph Hazrat Abu Bakr when during the battle of Yamama, 70 memorizers of the Quran (Hafiz e Quran) were killed. Hazrat Umar bin Khattab became concerned and appealed to him to compile the Qur’an into book.

How the Quran was written:

When the memorizers of the Qur’an were martyred in the battle of Yamama, Then the Caliph Hazrat Abu Bakr formed a delegation under the supervision of Hazrat Zaid bin Saabit to write the Qur’an in book form. This delegation of 12 people, including famous figures such as Ali ibn Abi Talib, Usman ibn Affan, Abdullah ibn Masood, Talha ibn Ubaidullah, Ubayy ibn Kab, Khalid ibn al Waleed, Huzhaifah and Saleem, This 12 delegation of people gathered at the house of Hazrat Umar and collected all the material on which the Quranic verses were written. In addition, the memorized verses of the Companions were heard in the presence of two witnesses.

Thus, all the most important verses in the Qur’an, that describe the morality, faith, ideal stories of the prophets, creation of Humans etc.  Which believers should trust they were all collected.  Sayed Ibn al Aas, who was famous for his beautiful writing, he wrote Qur’anic verses in gazelle Skin. The Qur’an was recited in the presence of all the people and no one objected to it. The 33,000 Companions agreed that every letter of the Qur’an is in the right place.

What Does Quran Mean?

The Quran is the holy book of Muslims. Quran is derived from the verb qara’a which means “to read,” and “to recite”. Quran refers to Allah’s revealed truth. The Quran is the final revelation from Allah to our last prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W), through Gabriel (A.S). There are 30 Siparahs and 114 surahs in the Quran; every surah is divided by the verses. Verses of the Quran are also called Quran ayat. It has been written and read-only in Arabic for more than 1,400 years. But, Because Muslims around the world do not understand Arabic, that’s why the Qur’an is written in different languages. So that along with its recitation, it can be understood as well its meanings.

Right Guidance:

The Holy Quran was sent as a book of guidance for all humans. The Quran describes itself as a book of guidance for mankind in Surah Al Baqra 2 Ayat 185: During the month of Ramadan, the Quran was sent down as a guide to the people with Clear Signs of true guidance and as the Criterion (between right and wrong). So those of you who live to see that month should fast it, and whoever is sick or on a journey should fast the same number of other days instead. Allah wants ease and not hardship for you so that you may complete the number of days required, Allah for what He has guided you to, and gives thanks to Him. Quran contains some basic information that is not found in the other holy books. The Quran is considered the sacred word of Allah and it represents other books. The Quran is the source of guidance for today’s Muslims.

Quran Summary:

The Quran helps Muslims along the straight path in various matters of life. The Quran confirms and reminds the world of the teachings of the past prophets. In which there is an important part available of the story of Prophets. In the same way, the Quran describes in detail the message of happiness for the good people and for those who disobey Allah painful punishment for the bad people. In this book, there are verses of healing, asking for forgiveness and goodness for Muslims. The original purpose of the Quran is to advise, but still, we read it for the reward front. This is the reason that we have been deprived of the guidance of Allah. So we don’t just have to read the Quran; we have to understand it so that we can know its true purpose.

How Many Surahs are In the Quran?

One of the things that amaze me is that there is beauty and depth in the Qur’an. Qur’an is a guide for those who read it with understanding.

The most powerful and essence Surahs:

The Surah-al-Fatihah (The First Surah of Quran) and Surah Yaseen are the (thirty-six surah in Quran) are the most powerful and essence Surahs in Quran. Surah Al-Fatiha is a Dua of the Quran and Surah Yaseen is the heart of the Quran. This surah Fatiha has an essential role in Islamic prayer. Its seven verses are a prayer for the guidance and clemency of Allah. Its seven verses are a prayer for the guidance and clemency of Allah similarly; the main theme of Surah Yaseen is to explain some of the basic tenets of Islam. In Sahi Bukhari Whoever does not recite Surat Al-Fatihah in his prayer, his prayer is nullified. and Whoever recites Surah Yaseen and Surah Fatiha at night seeking Allah’s approval, Allah would forgive him.

Quran Shortest Surah:

Surah Al-Kausar is the shortest surah in Qur’an. there are 3 ayat in it and 10 words. The purpose of Surah Al-Kouser is that Allah says the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.W) to pray to him only. Surah Kauser summarizes devotion and spirituality. This Surah tells us how Allah brought Muhammad (S.A.W.W) the source of great abundance. For this reason, in this Surah, Allah says that the Prophet should take Dua and offer sacrifices.
