I exhort you, by Allah, by Allah, to take care of the House of your Lord! Do not leave it empty for as long as you live, for if it is deserted you will be given no respite.

الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : الحاجُّ والمُعْتَمِرُ وفْدُ اللّه‏ِ ، ويَحْبوهُ بالمَغفِرَةِ .

al-Khisal, p. 630, no. 10; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 388

الإمامُ عليٌّ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : وفَرَضَ علَيكمُ حَجَّ بَيتِهِ‏الحَرامِ الّـذي جَعَلهُ قِبلَـةً للأنـامِ ، يَرِدُونَـهُ وُرودَ الأنْعامِ ، ويَألَهونَ إلَيهِ وُلوهَ الحَمامِ ، وجَعلَهُ سبحانَهُ عَلامةً لِتَواضُعِهِم لِعظَمَتِهِ وإذْعانِهِم لِعزّتِهِ.

And He made obligatory for you the pilgrimage to His Sacred House which he made the ‘qibla’ for all people. They come to it like the cattle coming to water, and eagerly turn to it like the birds eagerly returning to their nest; He, glory be to Him, made it a sign of their humility before His greatness and their yielding to His Might.
Amir al-Mu'minin Imām ‘Alī ibn Abī Tālib (a.s.)
Nahj al-Balagha, Sermon 1; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 388

Perform the Hajj [obligatory pilgrimage] and the `umra [voluntary pilgrimage] so that your bodies become healthy, your sustenance expanded, and your faith improved; and suffice yourselves with the expenses of people and the expenses of your families.

الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : وهذا بَيتٌ اسْتَعبَدَ اللّه‏ُ بهِ خَلقَهُ ليَخْتَبِرَ طاعَتَهُم في إتْيانِهِ ، فحَثَّهُـم على تَعْظيمِـهِ وزيارَتـِهِ ، وقـَد جَعلَهُ مَحـلَّ الأنبياءِ وقِبْلَةً للمُصَلّينَ لَهُ ، وهُـو شُعْبَـةٌ مِن رِضْوانِـهِ ، وطريـقٌ يـُؤَدّي إلى غُفْـرانِهِ ، مَنْصوبٌ على اسْتِـواءِ الكَمـالِ ، ومُجْتَمَعِ العَظَمَةِ.

And this is the house by which Allah has demanded the devotion of His creatures to test their obedience in their coming to it, so He prompted them to glorify it and visit it. He made it the station of the prophets and the focal point (qibla) for those who pray to Him. It is a branch of His good pleasure and a way that leads to His forgiveness, founded on absolute perfection and ultimate grandeur.

There is no place dearer to Allah, most High, than the mas`aa [place of running between the mounts of al-Safa and al-Marwa in Makkah], for every overbearing person is lowered and debased before Him there.
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Bihar al-Anwar, v. 99. p. 45, no. 34; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 389

الإمامُ الرِّضا (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : فإنْ قالَ : فَلِمَ أمرَ بالحَجِّ؟ قيلَ :لِعلَّةِ الوِفادَةِ إلى اللّه‏ عزّوجلّ وطَلَبِ الزِّيادَةِ... مَع ما فيهِ مِن التَّفَقُّهِ ونَقْلِ أخْبارِ الأئمّةِ (عَلَيهمِ الّسَلام) إلى كُلِّ صُقْعٍ وناحِيَةٍ .

If someone asks why He commanded the pilgrimage, it is answered: in order for people to perform the journey to [i.e. for] Allah, Mighty and Exalted, and ask for increase… in addition to the benefits it has of understanding religion and relating the reports of the Imams (AS) to every side and region.

الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : ما رأيتُ شَيئا أسْرَعَ غِنىً ولا أنْفى للفَقرِ مِن إدْمانِ حَجِّ هذا البَيتِ.

I have never seen anything faster at attracting wealth and at repelling poverty than habitual pilgrimage (Hajj) to this house.

Amali al-Tusi, p. 694, no. 1478; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 389

عن إسحاقَ بنِ عمّارٍ : قُلتُ‏ للإمامِ الصادقِ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : إنّي قد وَطّنْتُ نَفْسي على لُزومِ الحجِّ كلَّ عامٍ بنَفْسي أو برَجُلٍ مِن أهلِ بَيْتي بمالي. فقالَ : وقَد عَزَمْتَ على ذلكَ؟ قلتُ : نَعَم ، قالَ : فإنْ فَعَلتَ (ذلك) فأيقِنْ بكَثْرَةِ المالِ ، و أبْشِرْ بكَثْرَةِ المالِ.

Imam al-Sadiq (AS), when Ishaq b. `Ammar said to him: ‘I have made up my mind to go for pilgrimage every year either personally or by sending one man of my household at my cost’ – asked, ‘Are you determined to do that?’ He said, ‘Yes’. The Imam said, ‘If you do that, then be certain of abundance in your wealth, and take glad tidings of abundance in your wealth.’

Complete your pilgrimage by visiting the Messenger of Allah (SAWA) when you leave to visit the House of Allah, for deserting it is unkind, and that is what you have been commanded to do [i.e. in the Qur’an: and complete …] by observing the rights of the graves that Allah has made incumbent upon you to visit, and ask for [increase in] your sustenance thereat.

Indeed people have been ordered to come to these stones [i.e. the edifice of the Ka`aba] to circumambulate them, and then to come to us to inform us of their friendship, and to declare their support for us.

He who abandons the pilgrimage for one of his worldly needs will not be able to satisfy that need until he sees the shaven heads [i.e. after the return of the pilgrims from Makkah].

Sawab al-A`amal, p. 281, no. 1; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 391

الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) ـ لَمّا قالَ لَهُ عبدُالرّحمنِ : إنَّ ناساً مِن هؤلاءِ القُصّاصِ يَقولونَ : إذا حَجَّ رجُلٌ حجّةً ثُمَّ تَصدَّقَ ووَصَلَ كانَ خَيراً لَهُ ـ : كَذَبوا ، لَو فَعلَ هذا النّاسُ لعُطِّلَ هذا البَيتُ ، إنَّ اللّه‏َ تعالى جَعلَ هذا البَيتَ قِياماً للنّاسِ.

Imam al-Sadiq (AS), when `Abd al-Rahman told him: ‘Some of these narrators are saying that it is better for a man to go for pilgrimage once and then to gives alms and maintain his kinship with his relatives [with that money than to go for pilgrimage again]’ – said, ‘They are wrong. If people were to do that the House would become deserted. Allah has made this House a [means of] sustentation for mankind.
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Ellal al-Shara’ie, v. 1, p. 452; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 391

عن عبدِ الرّحمانِ بنِ كثيرٍ: حَجَجْتُ مَع أبي عبدِ اللّه‏ِ، فلَمّا صِرْنا في بَعضِ الطَّريقِ صَعِدَ على جَبَلٍ فأشْرَفَ فنَظَرَ إلى النّاسِ، فقالَ : ما أكْثَرَ الضَّجيجَ وأقَلَّ الحَجيجَ!

Abd al-Rahman b. Kathir narrated: ‘I went for pilgrimage with Abu `Abdillah [al-Sadiq] (AS). When we had gone a certain way, he climbed a hill and looked down at the people and said, ‘What a lot of clamour and what few pilgrims!
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Bihar al-Anwar, v. 27, p. 181, no. 30; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 391

الإمامُ الباقرُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : ما يُعْبَأُ بِمَن يَؤُمُّ هذا البَيتَ إذا لَم يَكُن فيهِ ثَلاثُ خِصالٍ : وَرَعٌ يَحْجِزُهُ عن مَعاصي اللّه‏ِ تعالى ، وحِلْمٌ يَمْلِكُ بهِ غَضَبَهُ ، وحُسْنُ الصَّحابةِ لِمَن صَحِبَهُ .

The pilgrim to this House is of no worth unless he has three attributes: piety that restrains him from acts of disobedience to Allah, most High; clemency with which he controls his anger; and good companionship with whoever accompanies him.
Imām Muhammad ibn ‘Alī al-Baqir (a.s.)
al-Khisal, p. 148, no. 180; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 392

رسولُ اللهِ‏ِ (صَلَّيَ اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ آلِهِ) : مَن حَجَّ بمالٍ حَرامٍ فقالَ : لَبَّيْكَ اللّهُمَّ لَبَّيْكَ ، قالَ اللّه‏ُ لَهُ : لا لَبَّيْكَ ولا سَعْدَيْكَ، حَجُّكَ مَردودٌ علَيكَ.

When he who makes pilgrimage by means of unlawful money says: “Here I am O Allah! Here I am (labbayk All?humma labbayk)”, Allah will say to him, ‘No labbayka and no welcome for you. Your pilgrimage is returned to you.’
Holy Prophet Muhammad al Mustafā (s.a.w.w.)
al-Durr al-Manthur, v. 2, p. 63; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 392

الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : الحجُّ حَجّانِ : حَجٌّ للّه‏ِوحَجٌّ للنّاسِ، فمَنْ حَجَّ للّه‏ِ كانَ ثَوابُهُ على اللّه‏ِ الجَنّةَ، ومَن حَجَّ للنّاسِ كانَ ثَوابُهُ على النّاسِ يَومَ القِيامَةِ.

Pilgrimage is of two kinds: the pilgrimage [performed] for Allah and the pilgrimage for the people. So he who goes on pilgrimage for Allah, his reward is upon Allah and will be Paradise, and he who makes pilgrimage for the people, his reward on the Day of Resurrection will be with the people.
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, p. 74, no. 16; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 392

الإمامُ الرِّضا (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : إنَّما اُمِروا بالإحْرامِ‏ ليَخْشَعوا قَبلَ دُخولِهِم حَرَمَ اللّه‏ِ وأمْنَهُ، ولِئلاّ يَلْهوا ويَشْتَغِلوا بشَيءٍ مِن اُمـورِ الدُّنيـا وزِينتِهـا ولَذّاتِها، ويكونـوا جادِّيـنَ فيما هُم فيهِ، قاصِدينَ نَحْوَهُ، مُقْبِلينَ علَيهِ بِكُلِّيَّتِهِم

Indeed they have been ordered to be in the state of ihram in order that they humble themselves before entering the sanctuary and the safe place of Allah, and so that they do not divert and preoccupy themselves with anything of the affairs of this world and its adornments and pleasures; and so that they be serious in what they are engaged in, journeying to Him and approaching Him with all their being.
Imām Alī ibn Mūsā al-Rezā (a.s.)
Wasael al-Shi`aah, v. 9, p. 3, no. 4; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 393

الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : مَن ماتَ في طريقِ‏مَكّةَ ذاهِباً أو جائياً، أمِنَ مِن الفَزَعِ الأكْبَرِ يَومَ القِيامَةِ .

Whoever dies on the road to Makkah, on the way there or back, will be safe from the Great Terror on the Day of Resurrection
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
al-Kafi, v. 4, p. 263, no. 45; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 393

الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : مَن ماتَ مُحْرِماً بَعثَهُ اللّه‏ُ مُلَبِّياً.

Whoever dies in the state of ihram, Allah will raise him [obedient to Him] saying, ‘Here I am, O Allah’ (labbayka)
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Bihar al-Anwar,v. 7, p. 302, no. 56; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 393

الإمامُ الصّادقُ (عَلَيهِ الّسَلامُ) : يَفْقِدُ النّاسُ إمامَهُم فيَشْهَدُ المَوْسِمَ فيَراهُم ولا يَرَوْنَهُ .

The people miss their Imam, but he witnesses the season [of Hajj] and sees them, though they do not see him.
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Kamal al-Din, p. 346, no. 33; Mizan ul Hikmah, page No. 394

“Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, forgives the sins committed during the month of Zilhajj, Muharram, Safar, Rabiul Awwal and first ten days of Rabius Sani by a pilgrim, his family, his relatives and by those for whom he seeks forgiveness.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 78

“Allah forgives one who performs Hajj for Allah’s pleasure without the intention of showing it off to the people.
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 78

Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates that Imam Zainul Abideen (a.s.) said, “Perform Hajj and Umrah so that your bodies remain healthy, earnings increase, your faith strengthens and the expenses of people and your family members are met through it.”
Imām `Alī ibn Husayn (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 78

The narrator says that he asked Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.), “I have made an intention to go for Hajj every year or send someone from my family.” Imam enquired, “Are you saying this for sure?” “Yes,” he replied. Imam (a.s.) said, “If that is so, you should remain assured that you will get excessive wealth. Glad tiding to you for excessive wealth.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 78

Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) narrates from his predecessors that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “Whenever a pilgrim intends to go for a Hajj, Allah writes ten rewards for him, wipes his ten sins and increases his position by ten levels even before he has bought a single thing for his journey. When he intends to board the vehicle, Allah gives him the above mentioned reward even before he has set his foot on it. When he performs the circumambulation of the House of Allah his sins are wiped off. When he performs Saee between Safa and Marwa, he becomes pure of his sins. When he halts at Arafah, his sins vanish. When he camps in Mashar he comes out of his sins. When he performs stoning at Jimaraat, all his sins are wiped off. Similarly, the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) narrated all the acts of Hajj and said that all these acts wipe the sins of a person. Then he said, “How can you reach the position of a Hajj pilgrim?”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 78/79

The narrator says that he heard Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) say “When a Hajj pilgrim enters Mecca, Allah allots two angels for protecting him during circumambulation, Salaat and Saee. When he halts in Arafah, he is patted on his right shoulder and told, ‘Your past sins are forgiven. See how you spend your future life’.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 79

A person told Imam Zainul Abideen (a.s.), “You did not perform Jihad as it was difficult and performed Hajj as it is easy.” Imam was resting his back against the wall. He sat up straight and said, “Woe be on you. The saying of the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) at the time of the Last Hajj did not reach you. Surely, the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) conveyed to people through Bilal at sunset to keep quiet. When people fell silent, the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) said, “The Almighty Allah has made this day blessed for you. He has forgiven righteous among you and accepted their intercession for those who sinned. Go away for you are forgiven and you have gained the pleasure of Allah for those among you who were sinners.”
Imām `Alī ibn Husayn (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 79

When the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) started moving towards Arafah, a Bedouin saw him in the desert and said, “O Messenger of Allah (s.a.w.s.)! I have come to perform Hajj but I am not able to do so because of some problem. I have wealth; tell me something, which I can do and gain the reward of performing Hajj.” The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) pointed at Mount Abu Qubais and replied, “If you have a quantity of red gold equal to Mount Abu Qubais and you spend it in the way of Allah then too you won’t get the reward of Hajj.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 79/80

“The people who return from Hajj are of three types – some are freed from the fire of Hell, some become pure of their sins like they were on the day their mothers gave them birth and some protect their family and wealth. These are minimum benefits for a Hajj pilgrim.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 80

The narrator says that he heard Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) say, “The reward of performing Hajj is more than freeing ten slaves.” Imam (a.s.) kept on counting till he said that the reward of the acts of Hajj is more than freeing seventy slaves and said that the reward of circumambulation and a two rakat prayer are equal to freeing a slave.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 80

“Allah, the Blessed and the High, has positioned one hundred twenty bounties around Mecca. Out of that sixty are for those who perform circumambulation, forty for those who offer Salaat and twenty for the spectators.”
Imām Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sādiq (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 80

A person came to Imam Musa Kazim (a.s.). Imam (a.s.) asked him, “Are you returning from Hajj?” “Yes,” he replied. Imam (a.s.) asked, “Do you know the reward of a Hajj pilgrim?” He replied, “May I be sacrificed for you, I don’t know.” Imam (a.s.) said, “Every pilgrim should enter Mecca for Hajj with extreme humility. When he enters Masjidul Haraam, he should take small steps out of the fear of Allah. He should perform circumambulation of the Holy Kaaba and offer two rakat Salaat. Allah, the Mighty and Sublime would note seventy thousand rewards for him, wipe his seventy thousand sins, increase his position seventy thousand levels, fulfill his seventy thousand wishes and grant him the reward of freeing seventy thousand slaves each costing ten thousand dirhams.”
Imām Mūsā ibn Ja‘far al-Kāżim (a.s.)
Sawab al-A`amal, Page 80/81

“O Ishaq! For one who performs one circumambulation of the Holy Kaaba, Allah writes a thousand rewards, wipes out a thousand sins, increases his position a thousand levels, plants a thousand trees for him in Paradise and grants him reward of freeing a thousand slaves. If he touches his chest to the wall of the Holy Kaaba Allah opens all eight doors of Paradise for him and he would be given choice of entering through any one of them.” The narrator asked, “May I be sacrificed for you, is all this reward for one who performs circumambulation?” Imam (a.s.) replied, “Yes, should I tell you about a greater reward?” “Yes,” replied the narrator. Imam (a.s.) said, “To one who fulfils a wish of a believer, Allah gives reward of Tawaaf, Tawaaf, Tawaaf…(he repeated it ten times).”

Imam Ja’far Sadiq (a.s.) says that Imam Zainul Abideen (a.s.) willed to Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) at the time of his martyrdom, “I have performed twenty Hajjs on this she-camel and have not whipped it even once. When it dies, bury it, so that animals do not feed upon its flesh because I have heard the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) say that there is no camel who halts at Arafah during Hajj for seven years except that Allah makes it a camel of Paradise and blesses its progeny.” When this she-camel died, Imam Muhammad Baqir (a.s.) buried it.

أَمَا عَلِمْتَ أَنَّ الاِسْلامَ يَهْدِمُ مَا كانَ قَبْلَهُ وَأَنَّ الْهِجْرَةَ تَهْدِمُ مَا كانَ قَبْلَها وَأَنَّ الْحَجَّ يَهْدِمُ مَا كانَ قَبْلَهُ؟

Do not you know that Islam, Migration (to Medina) and Hajj destroy whatever have been practiced prior to them?
