Therefore, Hajj has its two types: Hajj, Tamatu 'and Hajj' Umrah, unless there is some evidence that the two are different. As God has said: Performing Hajj and Umrah for the sake of God.

There are various meanings in the dictionary for the word Hajj

 and all these meanings are used in Hajj.

1. To give voice to someone so that he is respected. Most people travel to God to express the greatness of God and His greatness.

2ـ Selfishness and abstinence.

3- Overcoming through argument and proof. For example, if someone overcomes through argument, then it is said that such and such person has an argument and proof.

4ـ Stepping into the house of God, as stepping into the house of the common people is the same meaning

Frequent visits are also used in the sense of Hajj because the meaning of Hajj is intentional.


The word Bait-ul-Haram appears in 16 places in the Holy Qur'an. In two places, God has attributed the Bait to Himself. ۔ And in one place, Hazrat Ibrahim has given the house to God (عِندَ بَيْتِكَ الْمُحَرَّمِ).

And in three places the relation of the house is given to the people (وُضِعَ لِلنَّاسِ) 4 (قيامً لِلنَّاسِ) 5 (مَثَابَةً لِلنَّاسِ) 6.


Mishabah has six meanings: shelter, place of repentance, place of warning, place of refuge, spring, place of return.

The word baz gashtagah means to turn to Allah and repent to Him. Baz gashtagah is a place of repentance and istighfar, just as killing means (killing) and killing means (killing place). Perfection is perfection. Man attains perfection through self-knowledge, ie perfection. Similarly, it is indicated in other verses of the Qur'an (هُدًى لِّلْعَالَمِينَ) and (بِبَكَّةَ مُبَارَكًَ) and other similar verses which are related to ordinary people and special people. Not specific, meaning that all humanity and humanity can benefit from Hajj.

The philosophy of Hajj is a few elements.

The first member is: (مَثَابَةً لِلنَّاسِ).

The second member is (Qiyamat lillanas) so that people may stand up. Hajj is the name of moving towards unity in abundance (ie people gather around the Ka'bah and reach the oneness of God) so that the religion of God may remain alive and well.

The third member is هدى وَمُبَرَكًَ. The literal meaning of Mubarak is that any good or virtue will remain and continue till the Day of Resurrection and forever. For example, it is said that the pen of such and such a person is blessed One of the blessed names of Hazrat Fatima (SA) is Mubarak.

Al-Aqsa Mosque

 is a blessed land (الْمَسْجِدِ الأَقْصَى الَّذِى بَارَكْنَا حَوْلَهُ). Friday night is a blessed night because its charities and blessings are everlasting and ongoing. Blessed is one of the names of Allah Almighty. It has been observed sometimes in the house, sometimes in the time, and sometimes inside the people, such as in the prophets, in the wills, in the pious and righteous scholars, and in the believers.

The fourth pillar is لِيَشْهَدُوا مَنَافِعَ لَهُمْ. We have made Hajj obligatory so that people may reap economic, material, and spiritual benefits from it.

Imam Sadiq (AS) was asked: What is meant by profit in the above verse? Does this mean worldly benefits or otherworldly benefits? Imam Ja'far Sadiq (AS) said: (Alkal) means both worldly and otherworldly benefits.

(لِيَشْهَدُوا مَنَافِعَ لَهُمْ) so that they may closely observe the benefits of Hajj for them.

There are benefits to Hajj for all people and this is the philosophy of Hajj.

(وَيَذْكُرُوا اسْمَ اللَّهِ فِي أَيَّامٍ مَّعْلُومَاتٍ اللہ) ie through worship and devotion to the place of مقام صبغةالله »

Hajj is the essence of Islam and is the largest Islamic gathering. Hajj is the foundation of the Islamic government. Hazrat Adam is the first person to perform Hajj to the Kaaba. The reason is that Allah Almighty wanted to accept Adam's repentance. He declared the Ka'bah to be the first house above the earth. In fact, the earth is spread out from under the Ka'bah on the day of Dhu'l-Arz.

Therefore, it is quoted in the fourteenth volume of Bihar Al-Anwar.

When God wanted to create the earth with His perfect power, he looked at it with all his awe. That essence became water and steam started rising from it. God created the sky with this steam. And by his command, the water took the form of a wave. Foam began to appear on the water. After that, the foam froze. And God created the Ka'bah.

Therefore, the Kaaba

 became the center of the whole world and Allah's will was to worship Him there.
