It is obligatory to perform Hajj and Umrah as soon as possible

All praise be to Allah, Lord of the universe. Peace and blessings be upon the noblest prophets and messengers,

I advise my brother for those who have not performed Hajj, they should hurry to perform it. Performing Hajj is legally obligatory for those who can afford to go there (Baitullah). Because Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala said:

And God has the duty of the people to perform the Hajj to the House, whoever is able to make a way to it.

"Performing the Hajj is a human obligation towards Allah, namely (for) those who are able to travel to Baitullah." (QS. Ali Imran: 97)

Nabi Shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallambersabda:

Islam is built on five things: bearing witness that there is no god but God and that Muhammad is the Messenger of God, establishing prayer, paying zakat, fasting Ramadan, and Hajj to the House.

"Islam is built on five things: testifying that there is no deity (deity) that has the right to be worshiped properly but only Allah and that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah, upholding prayer, paying zakat, fasting in the month of Ramadan and performing the pilgrimage to Baitullah." (HR. Al-Bukhari and Muslim).

The Prophet, may God bless him and grant him peace, also said:

God has made Hajj obligatory upon you, so perform Hajj

"Verily, Allah Ta'ala has made it obligatory upon you to perform Hajj, so perform Hajj." (HR. Muslim).

It is obligatory for every Muslim and Muslim woman who is able to perform the Hajj pilgrimage, she should hurry and not delay it. Because Allah Jalla wa 'Allaah requires it to be hastened, and it is not permissible for every Muslim who is able and is affected by the burden of the Hajj pilgrimage to postpone it. Even hastening it and speeding it up will bring enormous goodness, as the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam said,

Whoever performs Hajj and does not commit obscene acts or commit sin, his return will be like the day his mother gave birth to him

"Whoever performs Hajj, without speaking dirty and without cursing, his sins are forgiven like a newborn baby." (HR. Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

The Messenger of Allah, may God bless him and grant him peace, also said,

Umrah to Umrah is atonement for what is between them, and the accepted Hajj has no reward except Paradise

"One Umrah to another Umrah is atonement for the sins between the two, and a Hajj that is mabrur has no reward for him other than Heaven." (HR. Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

This is a very great blessing, which every Muslim should be eager to fulfill. Hasten to do the practice of the hereafter both on the way and in Makkah. Among these virtues are giving charity to the poor and needy, reading more of the Qur'an and remembering Allah, more tasbih, tahlil, tahmid and takbir, more prayers in the Haram Mosque and circumambulation if it is convenient for him in order to obtain great benefits in place and time the said.

In the Grand Mosque, prayer has 100,000 times the priority. Obligatory worship there is 100,000 times better than other places. Almsgiving there is a multifold reward. Similarly, tasbih, tahmid, tahlil and takbir, reading the Qur'an, amar ma'ruf nahi munkar, preaching inviting to Allah, studying the pilgrimage. All this is commanded for every Muslim. Among the commandments of the Sharia is to teach the procedures of Hajj to his brothers (if he has established knowledge), in a polite, gentle way and with good language. In addition to hoping that there is an opportunity to be present in Makkah to be able to do various kinds of good deeds, as has been explained such as prayer, circumambulation, preaching to God, amar ma'ruf nahi munkar, with a good style of language and polite sentences.

I advise the leaders of the Muslim community, wherever they are, to facilitate this Hajj for their people, and to pay special attention to this worship. This is part of helping each other in goodness and piety. Allah Ta'ala said

They cooperated in righteousness and piety

"Please help in goodness and piety." (QS. Al-Maidah: 2)

The government's efforts to help its people and facilitate the affairs of the Hajj is a form of helping each other in goodness. The effort to advise each other in the truth and patience, in it there is a great reward, like advising the government to judge by God's law in all aspects and help God's religion in every matter. We ask God to always give taufik to the leaders of the Muslim community in every good thing, so that goodness is realized and guidance is given.

Helping other Muslims in every good deed, as I advise anyone who facilitates the affairs of people who perform Hajj with piety to God. Be kind to them and help them in every good thing, then hope for reward and reward from God. Then they will get a great reward and priority, if they help and facilitate the performance of Hajj. We ask Allah 'Azza wa Jalla to accept all our practices and give guidance to the Muslims wherever they are so that they are pleased with Allah, and be given a good understanding of Allah's religion and Allah make us and them to be among those who are given guidance. May God help our brother in performing the Hajj in the condition that God is pleased with him. May Allah also improve the condition of Muslims wherever they are. Truly God is listening and near. Shalawat and salam to our Prophet Muhammad Shallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam, along with his family and all his companions.
