The prophet of God (P. B. U. H) stated: Everyone who wants the world and the hereafter should perform hajj rituals. Abdollah Ibn Fazl says: I said to Imam Sadegh (P) that I have too many debts, I have a big family and I can't afford the Hajj costs. Teach me a prayer. Imam stated: Say after each obligatory prayer: "May the blessings of Allah be upon Muhammad and his progeny, and pay my debts in this world and the hereafter. " I said to him, " I know what the worldly debts are but what are the debts of the hereafter? " He said: "Hajj". The prophet of God (P. B. U. H) looked at the strings of camels taking Hajis to the pilgrimage of God's House and said: They don't take steps unless it is taken as a good deed, they don't take steps unless it vanishes a sin of them. And when they finish their ceremony of Hajj, they will be told: "You have made a building, don't destroy it. Your sins are forgiven. From now on, do good deeds.

Imam Sadegh (P) said: O Isaac, everyone who circumambulates God's House one time, God writes down 1000 good deeds for him, vanishes 1000 of his sins, gives him 1000 rewards, plants 1000 trees fro him in Paradise, gives him mercifully the recompense for delivering 1000 slaves. When he reaches "Moltazem", 8 doors of Heaven open and he is told: "Enter whichever door you wish". Isaac said: "I said to Imam that all of those are for a person who just circumambulates God's House"? Imam stated: "Yes. Wouldn't I teach you a bigger recompense? " I said: "Please, teach me. " He said: "Everyone who does something for his faithful brothers, God will give him the recompense of 10 circumambulations."

Imam Sadegh (P) said: Someone who visits a Hajj pilgrim and shakes hands with him, it is as if he has touched the Hajar-ol-Asvad.

Imam Sadegh (P) says: People who do Hajj and Omreh are justified to God. God will grant them whatever they have asked. If they pray he willaccept, if they intercede, He will accept and if they remain silent, He himself begins to give them generously His favor and He grants themand instead of each derham, He will grant them thousands of derhams.


Imam Sadegh (P) says: Hajis who return from God's House appear in three categories: One group are those who are free from fire of Hell.One group who are purified of their sins as if they are born again. The third group are the people who come back with the guarantee of theirfamilies and properties, and this is the least a Haji enjoys.

B. U. H) ).

Regarding settlement in Arafat Imam Bagher says: none of good and wicked people would settle on the Arafat's mountain unlessGod accepts their prayers ; the chastes benediction for the mundane and afterlife matters will be accepted but the wicked prayers will beaccepted just for their mundane matters. A man asked Imam Sadegh (P) in Masjid- ul- Haram: Who commits the greatest sins? Imamsaid: "Someone who settles in Arafat and Mashar, and he does the ceremony of Saay between the mountains of Safa and Marveh, and circumambulates around the God's House, then he prays at the back of the Maghame Ibrahim (P) but doubts whether God forgives him ornot. This person commits the greatest sin."


Imam Hossain ibn Ali (P) says: Shake hands with Hajis and the people whom have performed the Hajj rituals and Omreh and salute thembefore they make sin.

Imam Sadegh (p) : No place is more favored by God except the place of running (Masaa) because there is where any selfish or cruel person will be humiliated and disrespected.


Imam Ali (p) : Don't you see that the Glorious God ever since Adam's time till the end of the world has tested people with rocks that areuseless as well as harmless, blind as well as deaf, and with all his respect, built them into a place where people gather round. Then, it was placed in the most rocky, plantless, and harrow canyon which was between the toughest mountains, hottest pebbles, and waterlesssprings that was very far from plains, somewhere no camel, horse, cow, or sheep could grow fat. If the Glorious God with all his respect were to place his home and the Hajj's ceremonial place somewhere else that was in the middle of gardens, springs, plains full of trees, fruit, and close houses and villages, and where fields full of wheat, gardens full of flowers, fine land and sure enough however simple the examination is, the reward will be little.


Imam Sadegh (P) in answer to Hesham the son of Hekam 's question about the reason of achieving the Hajj ceremony and circumambulating the Kaaba, replied: God created humans, andcommanded them to obey the religion and what's best for them in this world and placed Hajj to join his people from the east and west of the world (and so that they get to know what each other are up to) and so that the merchants that take goods from town to town would profit. And so that leaders and the camel keepers would gain something as well. And also so that the God's Messenger's traces would be known and his words would not be forgotten. If every tribe or person were to settle in his / her own city or land, they would banish, and their cities would be destroyed, they would have a financial decrease, and everything would be kept silent, this is the true reason of Hajj.

Imam Sajjad (p) : The right of Hajj for you is to know that through this you enter your God's bounders and you turn to him instead of sinning, and because of this your sorrow is accepted and you have achieved what God has asked you to do.


Imam Bagher (p) : Having complete Hajj is like meeting with the Imam.


Imam Kadhim (p) : Following the verse: Whoever is blind in this world is also blind in the second world and even more mislead. ImamKadhim (p) commented: That's someone who postpones the required Hajj and keeps saying I'll go this year, I'll go next year until he / she finally dies, and we warp their body and keep eyes of people.


Abdur Rahman the son of Kosair: I went to Hajj with Imam Sadegh (p) and on the way; his excellency went on a high mountain and lookedat people from up there and said: There's so much commotion and so little Hajis.


Imam Bagher (p) : Whoever comes to pilgrimage this house is not accepted if he/she doesn't have these three traits: 1. Self-restraintfrom sinning. 2. Forbearance to control his / her anger with. 3. Treating his / her companions properly.


Imam Sadegh (p) : If someone goes to the pilgrimage of God's home with religiously prohibited money, and says, " Oh my Lord, I 'mhere (Labake) (In return) he'll /she'll hear: No, you are not here and no you are not worthy. And if someone goes to the pilgrimage of God'shome with religiously legitimate money will hear: You are here and you are worthy.


The Holy Prophet Muhammad (p) said: Whoever goes to Hajj with religiously prohibited money, then says: I'm here, oh God,I'm here (Labake Allahomma Labake) God will answer: No, you are not here and no your Hajj should be of your own.

Imam Sadegh (p) : Whoever dies on the way to Mecca or coming back from Mecca will be rid of fright, fear, and nervousness on the Judgement Day.


Imam Sadegh (p) : Whoever dies while wearing the pilgrimage's garb, will later rise saying I'm here (Labake) .


Imam Sadegh (p) : Regarding the verse (And whoever reaches there is safe) said, Any human that enters the Holy Shrine and turns to it is safe from God's anger and if any kind of animal or bird enters, they should not be annoyed or forced out until it has left the Shrine itself.


Imam Sadegh (p) : People lose their Imam but his excellency is present in the Hajj ceremonies and sees people, but people don't see him.
