  • Hadith of the Day: Hajj Removes SinThe Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: "Make the Hajj and the Umrah (the lesser pilgrimage) follow each other closely, for they remove poverty and sins as a blacksmith's bellows remove impurities from iron, gold and silver." (Al-Tirmidhi) A man once told the Prophet: "My sister has taken a vow to perform Hajj on foot." The Prophet replied: "God receives no good from the affliction your sister has imposed on herself, so let her perform Hajj riding." (Sunan of Abu-Dawood)
