Reasons Muslim Perform Hajj
Reasons why Muslim go to Hajj. “The Feet of man will no slip on the day of resurrection until he is asked of five things: of his life as to how he used it, his youth as to how he utilized it, his wealth as from where he earned it and how he spent it, and of his wisdom as to what he did with it.” (Tirmizi)
Performing Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam that are obligated to perform. It is essential to know why to perform Hajj when one intends to do it. The Muslims are honored and proud to bow down before Allah, the one self-sufficient master, not he begets, nor he is begotten and no one is comparable to him. Allah is our Lord and what he commands we have to perform without raising questions. He commands to perform Hajj and has answered every question the Muslims can raise before performing; therefore, he answered them before.
