    Thumbs up True Essence of Hajj - An Amazing Explanation by Shaykh Junaid al-Baghdadi Radi Allah

    A man came to visit Sayyiduna Junaid Baghdadi, whose life reflected no change, even after having performed Hajj.

    Sayyiduna Junaid asked him: “Where are you coming from?”

    “Sir, I have returned after performing Hajj of the House of Allah”, was the reply.

    “So, have you actually performed Hajj?”

    “Yes, Sir, I have performed Hajj “, said the man.

    “Did you pledge that you would give up sins when you left your home for Hajj?” asked
    Sayyiduna Junaid.

    “No, Sir, I never thought of that”, said the man.

    “Then, in fact, you did not even step out for Hajj. While you were on the sacred journey and making halts at places during the nights, did you ever think of attaining nearness to Allah?”

    “Sir, I had no such idea.”

    “Then you did not at all travel to the Ka’bah, nor did ever visit it. When you put on the Ihram garments, and discarded your ordinary dress, did you make up your mind to abandon your evil ways and attitudes in life as well ?”

    “No, Sir, I had no idea of that.”

    “Then, you did not even don the Ihram garments!” said
    Sayyiduna Junaid ruefully. Then he asked; “When you stood in the Plain of Arafat and were imploring Allah Almighty, did you have the feeling that you were standing in Divine Presence and having a vision of Him?”

    “No, Sir, I had no such experience.

    Sayyiduna Junaid then became a liltle upset and asked: “Well, when you came to Muzdalifah, did you promise that you would give up vain desires of the flesh?”

    “Sir, I paid no heed to this.”

    “You did not then come to Muzdalifah at all.” Then he asked: 0″Tell me, did you happen to catch glimpses of Divine Beauty when youmoved round the House of Allah?”

    “No, Sir, I caught no such glimpses.”

    “Then, you did not move around the Ka’bah at all.” Then he said: “When you made Sa’i (running) between the Safa and the Marwa, did you realize the wisdom, significance and objective of your effort?”

    “Sir, I was not at all conscious of this.”

    “Then you did not make any Sa’i!” Then he asked: “When you slaughtered an animal at the place of sacrifice, did you sacrifice your selfish desires as well in the way of Allah?”

    “Sir, I failed to give any attention to that!”

    “Then, in fact you offered no sacrifice whatever.”

    “Then when you cast stones at the Jamarahs, did you make a resolve to get rid of your evil companions and friends and desires?”

    “No, Sir, I didn’t do that.”

    “Then, you did not cast stones at all”, remarked
    Sayyiduna Junaid regretfully, and said:

    “Go back and perform Hajj once again, giving due thought and attention to all the requirements, so that your Hajj may bear some resemblance with Prophet Ibrahim’s Hajj, whose faith and sincerity has been confirmed by the Qur’an: Ibrahim who carried out most faithfully the Commands (of his Lord).” (53:37)

    Hadrat Anas Radi ALLAH Taala Anhu reported that the Messenger of Allah Peace And Blessings Be Upon Him has said, “Everything has a heart, and the heart of the Qur’an is Yasin. Allah records anyone who recites Yasin as having recited the Qur’an ten times.”
    [Sunan Tirmidhi, Vol 2, Page 116 - Sunan Daarimi, Vol 2, Page 336]

    Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (Allah be pleased with him) narrates that Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "Allah Ta'ala accepts the dua of one who performs Hajj and Umrah and if he seeks forgiveness. Allah Ta'ala forgives him."

    Internal purification is also essential for a Haji (pilgrim) he must purify the inner personality and soul with pure intention for the sacred pilgrimage and Ihram. This specific purification is known as (Tazkiyyat-Un-Nafs) purification of the soul.
