Visiting Haramain al-Tayyibain, performing Hajj or Umrah or having the privilege of seeing the Holy Kabah and the blessed Grand Green Dome or travelling there with any pious intention is certainly a great privilege. Because it is such a great journey in which lies blessings and favours in every step and when a pilgrim or a visitor reaches Haramain al-Tayyibain, he in fact has a stroke of fortune, if he dies during that period and is given a little piece of land for his grave, what could be more rewarding than this privilege? And besides that, rewards will be continue to be recorded in his book of deeds till the Day of Judgement according to his good intention and if he had to return home, then there would be great desires of going back to quench his thirst and eagerness. In short! This blessed journey has enormous advantages. Let’s read some blessed sayings of the Beloved and Blessed Prophet (SallAllahu Alayhi wa Sallam):
» One who comes out of his house for performing Hajj or Umrah and dies, Allah will grant the reward of Hajj or Umrah for him until the Day of Judgment. [Bayhaqi, Shu'ab al-Iman, Vol. 3, Page 474, Hadith 4100]
» There will be no accountability for the one who departs for Hajj or Umrah and dies on the way. He will be ordered to enter Paradise. [Tabarani, Al-Mu’jam al-Awsat, Vol. 4, Page 111, Hadith 8835]
» Whoever leaves his house with the intention of Baytullah, if his soul is removed, then it is in the mercy of Allah that He enters him into Jannah and if he returns, (after performing Hajj) he will return along with reward and benefit. [Al-Mu’jam al-Awsat, Vol. 2, Page 352, Hadith 9033]
