New Zealand Muslim rugby All Blacks superstar Sonny Bill Williams has traveled to the Muslims’ most holy city of Makkah to perform Umrah and visit Al-Madinah.
The Muslim members of Ghana national football team arrived Sunday in Saudi Arabia to perform umrah, or mini-hajj, and ask for Allah’s blessings.
After we were about to leave for Madinah, we did the farewell tawaf. Do I have to pay any penalty?
Dear scholars, as-salamu `alaykum. How can Muslims enhance their faith after performing Hajj? Any tips will be very much appreciated. Jazakum Allah khayran.
What next is required of a person blessed with Hajj and `Umrah upon returning home?
This brings to my mind the following question: What is the concept of sacrifice in Islam?
What is the best time for offering udhiyah (sacrifice)? Do we have to offer a separate sacrifice on behalf of every one in our family or one sacrifice is sufficient for the whole family? Is it better to offer sacrifice or can we give money as charity instead?
What is the ruling on one who performed `Umrah and started sa`i from al-Marwah instead of as-Safa?
The stay here has been a reminder that we often own far too many things and when you break it down, all our worldly possessions will be left behind! Such a humbling experience!
