Actually, there are many hadiths that explain why is Hajj very important for Muslims. Of course, I will not quote everything. In this article, I will only quote three hadiths.

Hadith About Why Is Hajj Important

The three hadiths about why is hajj important that I mean are as follows;

حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْعَزِيْزِ بْنِ عَبْدِ اللهِ , حَدَّثَنَا إِبْرَاهِيْمُ بْنِ سَعْدٍ , عَنِ الزُّهْرِيِّ , عَنْ سَعِيْدٍ بْنِ الْمُسَيَّبِ , عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ , قَالَ : سُئِلَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : أَيُّ الْأَعْمَالِ أَفْضَلُ ؟ قَالَ :إِيْمَانٌ بِاللهِ وَرَسُوْلِهِ . قِيْلَ : ثُمَّ مَاذَا ؟ جِهَادٌ فِيْ سَبِيْلِ اللهِ . قِيْلَ : ثُمَّ مَاذَا ؟ قَالَ :حَجٌّ مَبْرُوْرٌ

Abdul Aziz bin Abdillah told us, Ibrahim bin Sa’ad told us, from az-Zuhri, from Sa’id bin al-Musayyab, from Abu Hurairah radiyallahu anhu, he said, “The Prophet. once asked, “What are the main actions?” He replied, “Faith in Allah and His Messenger.” Asked, “Then what?” He replied, “Jihad in the way of Allah.” Then asked, “Then what?” He replied, “Hajj Mabrur.”

عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنْهُ أَنَّ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ : الْعُمْرَةُ إِلَى الْعُمْرَةِ كَفَّارَةٌ لِمَا بَيْنَهُمَا , وَالْحَجُّ الْمَبْرُوْرُ لَيْسَ لَهُ جَزَاءٌ إِلَّا الْجَنَّةُ . مُتَّفَقٌ عَلَيْهِ

From Abu Hurairah radliyallahu anhu, that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, “One Umrah to Umrah to the other is the penance of sin which exists between the two. There is no other reward for Hajj Mabrur except only Heaven.” The hadith is narrated by al-Bukhari and Muslim.

عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : مَنْ حَجَّ فَلَمْ يَرْفَثْ وَلَا يَفْسِقُ رَجَعَ كَيَوْمٍ وَلَدَتْهُ أُمُّهُ

From Abu Hurairah, he said, “The Messenger of Allah (Prophet Muhammad) sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,” Whoever, when performing hajj does not engage in sex and does not commit masses (sinning), then he will return (after returning from the hajj), like the day her mother gave birth to her.”
