Hajj, therefore gives, us opportunity to enjoy a well-balanced life. We also attain success in this world by developing our personality for Hajj trains us Muslims to develop right conduct. Allah the Exalted has enjoined upon us to take right conduct as the best provision in our Hajj journey:“For Hajj are the months well known. If any one undertakes that duty therein, let there be no obscenity, nor wickedness, nor wrangling in the Hajj. And whatever good you do, (be sure) Allah knows it and take a provision (with you) for the journey, but the best of provisions is right conduct. So fear Me, o you that are wise.” (Qur’an 2:197)Muslims who go to Hajj are expected to observe discipline, patience, kindness, tolerance and above all, peace. They ought to observe peace not only among themselves but also with animals and other living creatures including insects. This means that they are expected to control anger. Controlling anger is a virtue which we Muslims are supposed to develop even if we are not on pilgrimage as the Prophet (s.a.w.) taught us in the following authentic Ahâdîth:Abu Hurayra (r.a.) narrated that a man said to the Prophet (s.a.w.) “Advise me!” The Prophet (s.a.w.) said, “Do not be angry and furious.” The man asked (the same) again and again, and the Prophet (s.a.w.) said in each case, “Do not be angry and furious.” (Bukhari 8/ 137)Abu Huraira (r.a.) narrated Allah’s Messenger (s.a.w.) said, “The strong is not the one who overcomes the people by his strength, but the strong is the one who controls himself while in anger.” (Bukhari 8/ 135 and Muslim 4/6311-6314)
Increases Iman (Faith)
Furthermore performance of Hajj increases our Iman (Faith). It makes us realize Allah`s justice and equal treatment of all people who believe in Him. Muslims from different parts of the world, irrespective of race and socio-economic status in life wear the same prescribed simple clothing, utter the same supplications and perform the same religious rituals during Hajj for the same purpose of pleasing the Creator. Muslims who go to Hajj experience the largest congregation of different nations, which no other peoples from other religions have ever experienced. When we see people from different countries doing all the rituals of Hajj for Allah’s pleasure, we witness the universality of Islam. Indeed, Islam is for all mankind and that Allah Alone is the God of all mankind.
