The Prophet of Allah صلي الله عليه و سلم has declared and announced that Hajj is a obligation upon every man. As we are all aware, this declaration comes from none other than Allah سبحانه و تعالي.
Therefore, it is essential for ever Muslim to seek the knowledge of this obligatory act as adviced by the Messenger of Allah صلي الله عليه و سلم:
طلب العلم فريضة علي كل مسلم
“The seeking of knowledge is obligatory upon every Muslim”
The knowledge which is obligatory upon every Muslim is that knowledge which a person needs to accomplish and execute the necessities and obligations of his Religion, Islam.
As the month of Hajj is approaching there will be many articles, speeches, talks and lessons regarding the obligation of Hajj. This will be in attempt to educate the people in this area of their Deen.
However, as the saying goes, ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’; it will be most beneficial to have this obligation and pilgrimage explained to us is picture format as well as words.
In attempt to accomplish this there will be a Multi Media Presentation held in Jame Mosque, Leicester, to educate the people through the means of slide show presentations and explanations of the acts and methods of Hajj.
I pray to Allah that He gives us the opportunity to visit His house and fulfil this beautiful and inspiring obligation of Hajj. I pray that He gives us the inclination to seek that knowledge which is necessary for us. Aameen.
Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to ask all those who are going to travel to the blessed cities to remember me in their Du’as.
