Book: Manasik of Hajj by Ayatollah Sistani

Hajj is one of the basic principles of Islam; its performance is one of its essentials, and its non- performance is a grave sin.

It is clear from the Holy Qur’an and the traditions that performance of Hajj (Pilgrimage) is obligatory on every person who has attained puberty and has the means mentioned below.  Hajj is one of the basic principles of Islam; its performance is one of its essentials, and its non- performance is a grave sin. Denial of the obligatory nature of Hajj is blasphemy (kufr). Allah states in the Holy Qur’an, “.. and pilgrimage to the House is incumbent upon men  for the sake of  Allah, (upon) everyone who is able to undertake the journey to it; and whoever disbelieves, surely Allah is Self-sufficient, above any need of the worlds”.
