The Hajj of Ahl-ul-Bayt (A.S)


Abd Allah ibn Ubaid ibn Umair: Hassan ibn Ali (A.S) performed the pilgrimage of Hajj on foot twenty-five times, while well-bred horses were at his disposal.

Sufyan ibn Uyaynah: Ali ibn al-Hussein ibn Ali ibn Abi Talib (A.S) was performing the pilgrimage of Hajj, and when put on the ihram (the pilgrimage garment) and his animal was ready to ride, his face got pale , his body started to tremble, and he was not able to say labbayk (here am I). He was asked: Why do you not say labbayk? He replied: I fear to say labbayk lest Allah Say: No labbayk. He was told: But you should say labbayk. Sufyan says: When he said labbayk, he fainted and fell off the animal he was riding and that was his state until he fulfilled his hajj.

Aflah, the retainer of Imam al-Baqir (A.S): We set off for Hajj with our master. When the Imam (A.S) entered the [Sacred] Mosque and looked at the House of Allah, he burst into tears so loudly and uncontrollably. I said: May my father and mother be sacrificed to you, will you bring down your voice, as the people are, watching you. His Holiness went on crying and said: Surprising! Why should I not cry? May Allah look at me with His Mercy and grant me salvation. Then he circumambulated the Kaba and said prayer at the Maqam Ibrahim. When he took his forehead off the ground (form sajdah), his tears was all over the spot.

Malik ibn Anas: When I would visit Imam Sadiq Jafar ibn Muhammad (A.S) he would bring me cushion and respect me highly, saying: O Malik! I like you. I would get cheerful and thank Allah for that. His Holiness (A.S.) was not out of one of the three states: He was either fasting or engaged in worship or remembering Allah [saying dhikr]. The Imam (A.S) was one of the greatest worshippers and pious persons who fear Allah, the Almighty. He used to narrate hadith plentifully, was the most pleasant company, and much helpful. Whenever he uttered the phrase: The Holy Prophet (PBUH) has said, his skin color would turn so pale and drawn that those who know him could hardly recognize his face.

One year I performed Hajj at his service, when upon wearing Ihram he mounted his riding animal, whenever he intended to say labbayk his larynx failed to let out any voice and he about to collapse. I said: Go on O son of Rasul Allah! You are to say labbayk. The Holy Imam said: O son of Abi Amir! How would I dare say: labbayk, Allahumma labbayk whereas I fear Allah would respond: No labbayk and no sa'dayk (glad to be here).

Muhammad ibn Uthman al-Amri: I swear by Allah, the Master of this affair [Hazrat Wali Asr-May Allah hastens his reappearance] takes part in Hajj Pilgrimage every year and sees people and knows them and people see him too but do not identify him.
