What Is Akbari Hajj?


Please tell me what is Akbari Hajj and the virtues of Hajj on a friday.



In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Akhbari Hajj refers to every normal Hajj. It is called Akhbari Hajj(big Hajj) to distinguish it from Umrah which is called Hajj-e-Asghar (small Hajj).However, if the day of Arafaat is a Friday, the reward for such a Hajj is 70 times more.(Tirmidhi vol.3 pg 245).

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best

Mufti Ebrahim Desai.
