Hajj is an imperative duty (fard) for all Muslims who have the resources. It is to be performed during the days of Hajj, preferably once in a lifetime. The word Hajj literally means repairing to a place for the sake of visit, and in the terminology of the Islamic Sharia, it implies repairing to Bait-ALLAH (the House of ALLAH, one of the names of al-Ka’aba) to observe the necessary devotions. Hajj is not a new institution introduced by Islam in its Sharia, This practice of Hajj is as old as al-Ka’aba, itself, referred in the Holy Quran as the “first House of Divine Worship appointed for mankind” (3:95). This verse corroborates the Hadith (Prophetic Saying) which tells us that al-Ka’ba was first built by Prophet Adam (AS), the first man on earth.
