[Quranic Reflection]: the Hajj.

[Quranic Reflection]: the Hajj.
Today is "13 Dul Hijjah"; which is Friday, 23 July 2021: the last and final day of the 6 days Hajj Pilgrimage, a cornerstone of the 5 pillars of Islam, a Muslim is supposed to do the Hajj once in a lifetime only.

Through the 6 days of the journey, those who go should wear the "Ihram", and practice the following verse to the letter:


Quote:Sura 2, The Quran:
https://quran.ksu.edu.sa/index.php?l=en#aya=2_197&m=hafs&qaree=husary&trans=en_sh

( 197 )   Hajj is [during] well-known months, so whoever has made Hajj obligatory upon himself therein [by entering the state of ihram], there is [to be for him] no sexual relations and no disobedience and no disputing during Hajj. And whatever good you do - Allah knows it. And take provisions, but indeed, the best provision is fear of Allah. And fear Me, O you of understanding.

( 198 )   There is no blame upon you for seeking bounty from your Lord [during Hajj]. But when you depart from 'Arafat, remember Allah at al- Mash'ar al-Haram. And remember Him, as He has guided you, for indeed, you were before that among those astray.


( 199 )   Then depart from the place from where [all] the people depart and ask forgiveness of Allah. Indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful.

( 200 )   And when you have completed your rites, remember Allah like your [previous] remembrance of your fathers or with [much] greater remembrance. And among the people is he who says, "Our Lord, give us in this world," and he will have in the Hereafter no share.


In the 6th day of the journey though, Muslims should act "the stoning of Satan", AKA "رمي الجمرات":


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hajj#Last_..._al-Hijjah


Quote:performs symbolic stoning of the devil by throwing stones at three pillars. After the sacrifice of an animal (can be accomplished by using a voucher (see below)), the Pilgrims then are required to either shave or trim their heads (male) or trim the ends of their hair (female). A celebration of the three-day global festival of Eid al-Adha proceeds thereafter.[11][12][13][14]

And that's that. 

More verses from the Quran:


Quote:Sura 2, The Quran:
https://quran.ksu.edu.sa/index.php?l=en#aya=2_203&m=hafs&qaree=husary&trans=en_sh

( 203 )   
And remember Allah during [specific] numbered days. Then whoever hastens [his departure] in two days - there is no sin upon him; and whoever delays [until the third] - there is no sin upon him - for him who fears Allah. And fear Allah and know that unto Him you will be gathered.

`
Quote:Sura 2, The Quran:
https://quran.ksu.edu.sa/index.php?l=en#...rans=en_sh

( 31 )   Inclining [only] to Allah, not associating [anything] with Him. And he who associates with Allah - it is as though he had fallen from the sky and was snatched by the birds or the wind carried him down into a remote place.

( 32 )   That [is so]. And whoever honors the symbols of Allah - indeed, it is from the piety of hearts.

( 33 )   For you the animals marked for sacrifice are benefits for a specified term; then their place of sacrifice is at the ancient House.

( 34 )   And for all religion We have appointed a rite [of sacrifice] that they may mention the name of Allah over what He has provided for them of [sacrificial] animals. For your god is one God, so to Him submit. And, [O Muhammad], give good tidings to the humble [before their Lord]

( 35 )   Who, when Allah is mentioned, their hearts are fearful, and [to] the patient over what has afflicted them, and the establishers of prayer and those who spend from what We have provided them.

( 36 )   And the camels and cattle We have appointed for you as among the symbols of Allah; for you therein is good. So mention the name of Allah upon them when lined up [for sacrifice]; and when they are [lifeless] on their sides, then eat from them and feed the needy and the beggar. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may be grateful.

Ah, discussing Quran and Islam with winterhold

teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

Why go to the Hajj, get heat stroke and potentially get killed in a stampede when you can...

(checks to-do list for Friday)

...listen to an audiobook, eat cookies, or paint a chair?

Quote:...a Muslim is supposed to do the Hajj once in a lifetime only.

I thought it was ‘at least’ once in a lifetime, that it is compulsory to do it once, but doing more often is voluntary. No?

just a jump to the left
