Hadiths of Prophet (PBUH) Concerning Umrah
Selected Hadith : Sahih Bukhari.
Book : 27. Minor Pilgrammage (Umra).
027 : 001 : Narrated By Abu Huraira
Allah's Apostle said, "(The performance of) 'Umra is an
expiation for the sins committed (between it and the previous one). And the
reward of Hajj Mabrur (the one accepted by Allah) is nothing except Paradise."
027 : 002 : Narrated By Ibn Juraij
Ikrima bin Khalid asked Ibn 'Umar about performing 'Umra
before Hajj. Ibn 'Umar replied, "There is no harm in it." 'Ikrima said, "Ibn 'Umar
also said, 'The Prophet had performed 'Umra before performing Hajj.'"
027 : 003 : Narrated By 'Ikrima bin Khalid
"I asked Ibn 'Umar the same (as above)."
027 : 004 : Narrated By Mujahid
Ursa bin AzZubair and I entered the Mosque (of the Prophet)
and saw 'Abdullah bin Umar sitting near the dwelling place of 'Aisha and some
people were offering the Duha prayer. We asked him about their prayer and he
replied that it was a heresy. He (Ursa) then asked him how many times the
Prophet had performed 'Umra. He replied, 'Four times; one of them was in the
month of Rajab." We disliked to contradict him. Then we heard 'Aisha, the Mother
of faithful believers cleaning her teeth with Siwak in the dwelling place. 'Ursa
said, "O Mother! O Mother of the believers! Don't you hear what Abu 'Abdur
Rahman is saying?" She said, "What does he say?" 'Ursa said, "He says that
Allah's Apostle performed four 'Umra and one of them was in the month of Rajab."
'Aisha said, "May Allah be merciful to Abu 'Abdur Rahman! The Prophet did not
perform any 'Umra except that he was with him, and he never performed any 'Umra
027 : 005 : Narrated By 'Ursa bin Az-Zubair
I asked 'Aisha (whether the Prophet had performed 'Umra in
Rajab). She replied, "Allah's Apostle never performed any 'Umra in Rajab."
027 : 006 : Narrated By Qatada
I asked Anas how many times the Prophet had performed 'Umra.
He replied, "Four times. 1. 'Umra of Hudaibiya in Dhi-l-Qa'da when the pagans
hindered him; 2. 'Umra in the following year in Dhi-l-Qa'da after the peace
treaty with them (the pagans); 3. 'Umra from Al-Jr'rana where he distributed the
war booty." I think he meant the booty (of the battle) of Hunain. I asked, "How
many times did he perform Hajj?" He (Anas) replied, "Once. "
027 : 007 : Narrated By Qatada
I asked Anas (about the Prophet's 'Umra) and he replied,
"The Prophet performed 'Umra when the pagans made him return, and Umra of al-Hudaibiya
(the next year), and another 'Umra in Dhi-l-Qa'da, and another 'Umra in
combination with his Hajj."
027 : 008 : Narrated By Hammam
The Prophet performed four 'Umra (three) in Dhi-l-Qa'da
except the (one) 'Umra which he performed with his Hajj: His 'Umra from Al-Hudaibiya,
and the one of the following year, and the one from Al-Jr'rana where he
distributed the booty (of the battle) of Hunain, and another 'Umra with his
027 : 009 : Narrated By Abu Ishaq
I asked Masruq, 'Ata' and Mujahid (about the 'Umra of
Allah's Apostle). They said, "Allah's Apostle had performed 'Umra in Dhi-l-Qa'da
before he performed Hajj." I heard Al-Bara' bin 'Azib saying, "Allah's Apostle
had performed 'Umra in Dhi-l-Qa'da twice before he performed Hajj."
027 : 010 : Narrated By Ata
I heard Ibn 'Abbas saying, "Allah's Apostle asked an Ansari
woman (Ibn 'Abbas named her but 'Ata' forgot her name), 'What prevented you from
performing Hajj with us?' She replied, 'We have a camel and the father of
so-and-so and his son (i.e. her husband and her son) rode it and left one camel
for us to use for irrigation.' He said (to her), 'Perform 'Umra when Ramadan
comes, for 'Umra in Ramadan is equal to Hajj (in reward),' or said something
027 : 011 : Narrated By 'Aisha
We set out along with Allah's Apostle shortly before the
appearance of the new moon (crescent) of the month of Dhi-l-Hijja and he said to
us, "Whoever wants to assume Ihram for Hajj may do so; and whoever wants to
assume Ihram for 'Umra may do so. Hadn't I brought the Hadi (animal for
sacrificing) (with me), I would have assumed Ihram for 'Umra." ('Aisha added,):
So some of us assumed Ihram for 'Umra while the others for Hajj. I was amongst
those who assumed Ihram for 'Umra. The day of 'Arafat approached and I was still
menstruating. I complained to the Prophet (about that) and he said, "Abandon
your 'Umra, undo and comb your hair, and assume Ihram for Hajj." When it was the
night of Hasba, he sent 'Abdur Rahman with me to At-Tan'im and I assumed Ihram
for 'Umra (and performed it) in lieu of my missed 'Umra.
027 : 012 : Narrated By 'Amr bin Aus
Abdul Rahman bin Abu Bakr told me that the Prophet had
ordered him to let 'Aisha ride behind him and to make he perform 'Umra from At-Tan'im.
027 : 013 : Narrated By Jabir bin 'Abdullah
The Prophet and his companions assumed Ihram for Hajj and
none except the Prophet and Talha had the Hadi with them. 'Ali had come from
Yemen and he had the Hadi with him. He ('Ali) said, "I have assumed Ihram with
an intention like that of Allah's Apostle has assumed it." The Prophet ordered
his companions to intend the Ihram with which they had come for 'Umra, to
perform the Tawaf of the Ka'ba (and between Safa and Marwa), to get their hair
cut short and then to finish their Ihram with the exception of those who had the
Hadi with them. They asked, "Shall we go to Mina and the private organs of some
of us are dribbling (if we finish Ihram and have sexual relations with our
wives)?" The Prophet heard that and said, "Had I known what I know now, I would
not have brought the Hadi. If I did not have the Hadi with me I would have
finished my Ihram." 'Aisha got her menses and performed all the ceremonies (of
Hajj) except the Tawaf. So when she became clean from her menses, and she had
performed the Tawaf of the Ka'ba, she said, "O Allah's Apostle! You (people) are
returning with both Hajj and 'Umra and I am returning only with Hajj!" So, he
ordered 'Abdur Rahman bin Abu Bakr to go with her to At-Tan'im. Thus she
performed 'Umra after the Hajj in the month of Dhi-l-Hijja. Suraqa bin Malik bin
Ju'sham met the Prophet at Al-'Aqaba (Jamrat-ul 'Aqaba) while the latter was
stoning it and said, "O Allah's Apostle! Is this permissible only for you?" The
Prophet replied, "No, it is for ever (i.e. it is permissible for all Muslims to
perform 'Umra before Hajj."
027 : 014 : Narrated By 'Aisha
We set out with Allah's Apostle shortly before the appearance of the new moon of Dhi-l-Hiija and he said, "Whoever wants to assume Ihram for 'Umra may do so, and whoever wants to assume Ihram for Hajj may do so. Had not I brought the Hadi with me, I would have assumed Ihram for 'Umra." Some of the people assumed Ihram for 'Umra while others for Hajj. I was amongst those who had assumed Ihram for 'Umra. I got my menses before entering Mecca, and was menstruating till the day of 'Arafat. I complained to Allah's Apostle about it, he said, "Abandon your 'Umra, undo and comb your hair, and assume Ihram for Hajj." So, I did that accordingly. When it was the night of Hasba (day of departure from Mina), the Prophet sent 'Abdur Rahman with me to At-Tanim.
The sub-narrator adds: He ('AbdurRahman) let her ride behind him. And she
assumed Ihram for 'Umra in lieu of the abandoned one. 'Aisha completed her Hajj
and 'Umra, and no Hadi, Sadaqa (charity), or fasting was obligatory for her.
027 : 015 : Narrated By Al-Aswad
That 'Aisha said, "O Allah's Apostle! The people are
returning after performing the two Nusuks (i.e. Hajj and 'Umra) but I am
returning with one only?" He said, "Wait till you become clean from your menses
and then go to At-Tan'im, assume Ihram (and after performing 'Umra) join us at
such-and-such a place. But it (i.e. the reward if 'Umra) is according to your
expenses or the hardship (which you will undergo while performing it)."
027 : 016 : Narrated By 'Aisha
We set out assuming the Ihram for Hajj in the months of Hajj
towards the sacred precincts of Hajj. We dismounted at Sarif and the Prophet
said to his companions, "Whoever has not got the Hadi with him and likes to make
it as 'Umra, he should do it, but he who has got the Hadi with him should not do
it." The Prophet and some of his wealthy companions had the Hadi with them, so
they did not finish Ihram after performing the 'Umra. The Prophet came to me
while I was weeping. He asked me the reason for it. I replied, "I have heard of
what you have said to your companions and I cannot do the 'Umra." He asked me,
"What is the matter with you?" I replied, "I am not praying." He said, "There is
no harm in it as you are one of the daughters of Adam and the same is written
for you as for others. So, you should perform Hajj and I hope that Allah will
enable you to perform the 'Umra as well." So, I carried on till we departed from
Mina and halted at Al-Mahassab. The Prophet called 'Abdur-Rahman and said, "Go
out of the sanctuary with your sister and let her assume Ihram for 'Umra, and
after both of you have finished the Tawaf I will be waiting for you at this
place." We came back at mid-night and the Prophet asked us, "Have you finished?"
I replied in the affirmative. He announced the departure and the people set out
for the journey and some of them had performed the Tawaf of the Ka'ba before the
morning prayer, and after that the Prophet set out for Medina.
027 : 017 : Narrated By Safwan bin Ya'la bin Umaiya
From his father who said: "A man came to the Prophet while
he was at Ji'rana. The man was wearing a cloak which had traces of Khaluq or
Sufra (a kind of perfume). The man asked (the Prophet), 'What do you order me to
perform in my 'Umra?' So, Allah inspired the Prophet divinely and he was
screened by a place of cloth. I wished to see the Prophet being divinely
inspired. 'Umar said to me, 'Come! Will you be pleased to look at the Prophet
while Allah is inspiring him?' I replied in the affirmative. 'Umar lifted one
corner of the cloth and I looked at the Prophet who was snoring. (The
sub-narrator thought that he said: The snoring was like that of a camel). When
that state was over, the Prophet asked, "Where is the questioner who asked about
'Umra? Put off your cloak and wash away the traces of Khaluq from your body and
clean the Sufra (yellow colour) and perform in your Umra what you perform in
your Hajj (i.e. the Tawaf round the Ka'ba and the Sa'i between Safa and Marwa)."
027 : 018 : Narrated By Hisham Ibn 'Urwa
From his father who said: While I was a youngster, I asked 'Aisha the wife of the Prophet. "What about the meaning of the Statement of Allah:
"Verily! (the mountains) As-Safa and Al Marwa, are among the symbols of Allah. So, it is not harmful if those who perform Hajj or 'Umra of the House (Ka'ba at Mecca) to perform the going (Tawaf) between them? (2.158) I understand (from that) that there is no harm if somebody does not perform the Tawaf between them." 'Aisha replied, "No, for if it were as you are saying, then the recitation would have been like this: 'It is not harmful not to perform Tawaf between them.' This verse was revealed in connection with the Ansar who used to assume the Ihram for the idol Manat which was put beside a place called Qudaid and those people thought it not right to perform the Tawaf of As-Safa and Al-Marwa. When Islam came, they asked Allah's Apostle about that, and Allah revealed:
"Verily! (the mountains) As-Safa and Al-Marwa Are among the symbols of Allah.
So, it is not harmful of those who perform Hajj or 'Umra of the House (Ka'ba at
Mecca) to perform the going (Tawaf) between them." (2.158) Sufyan and Abu
Muawiya added from Hisham (from 'Aisha): "The Hajj or 'Umra of the person who
does not perform the going (Tawaf) between As-Safa and Al-Marwa is incomplete in
027 : 019 : Narrated By Isma'il
Abdullah bin Abu Aufa said: "Allah's Apostle performed 'Umra
and we too performed 'Umra along with him. When he entered Mecca he performed
the Tawaf (of Ka'ba) and we too performed it along with him, and then he came to
the As-Safa and Al-Marwa (i.e. performed the Sai) and we also came to them along
with him. We were shielding him from the people of Mecca lest they may hit him
with an arrow." A friend of his asked him (i.e. 'Abdullah bin Aufa), "Did the
Prophet enter the Ka'ba (during that 'Umra)?" He replied in the negative. Then
he said, "What did he (the Prophet) say about Khadija?" He (Abdullah bin Aufa)
said, "(He said) 'Give Khadija the good tidings that she will have a palace made
of Qasab in Paradise and there will be neither noise nor any trouble in it."
027 : 020 : Narrated By 'Amr bin Dinar
We asked Ibn 'Umar whether a man who had performed the Tawaf
of the Ka'ba but had not performed the Tawaf between As-Safa and Al-Marwa yet,
was permitted to have sexual relation with his wife. He replied, "The Prophet
arrived (at Mecca) and circumambulated the Ka'ba seven times and then offered a
two Rak'at prayer behind Maqam-lbrahim and then performed the going (Tawaf)
between As-Safa and Al-Marwa (seven times) (and verily, in Allah's Apostle you
have a good example." And we asked Jabir bin 'Abdullah (the same question) and
he replied, "He should not go near her till he has finished the going (Tawaf)
between As-Safa and Al-Marwa."
027 : 021 : Narrated By Abu Musa Al-Ashari
I came to the Prophet at Al-Batha' while his camel was
kneeling down and he asked me, "Have you intended to perform the Hajj?" I
replied in the affirmative. He asked me, 'With what intention have you assumed
Ihram?" I replied, "I have assumed Ihram with the same intention as that of the
Prophet. He said, "You have done well. Perform the Tawaf of the Ka'ba and (the
Sai) between As-safa and Al-Marwa and then finish the Ihram." So, I performed
the Tawaf around the Ka'ba and the Sai) between As-Safa and Al-Marwa and then
went to a woman of the tribe of Qais who cleaned my head from lice. Later I
assumed the Ihram for Hajj. I used to give the verdict of doing the same till
the caliphate of 'Umar who said, "If you follow the Holy Book then it orders you
to remain in the state of Ihram till you finish from Hajj, if you follow the
Prophet then he did not finish his Ihram till the Hadi (sacrifice) had reached
its place of slaughtering (Hajj-al-Qiran)."
027 : 022 : Narrated By Al-Aswad
Abdullah the slave of Asma bint Abu Bakr, told me that he
used to hear Asma', whenever she passed by Al-Hajun, saying, "May Allah bless
His Apostle Muhammad. Once we dismounted here with him, and at that time we were
travelling with light luggage; we had a few riding animals and a little food
ration. I, my sister, 'Aisha, Az-Zubair and such and such persons performed 'Umra,
and when we had passed our hands over the Ka'ba (i.e. performed Tawaf round the
Ka'ba and between As-Safa and Al-Marwa) we finished our Ihram. Later on we
assumed Ihram for Hajj the same evening."
027 : 023 : Narrated By 'Abdullah bin 'Umar
Whenever Allah's Apostle returned from a Ghazwa, Hajj or 'Umra,
he used to say Takbir thrice at every elevation of the ground and then would
say, "None has the right to be worshipped but Allah; He is One and has no
partner. All the kingdoms is for Him, and all the praises are for Him, and He is
Omnipotent. We are returning with repentance, worshipping, prostrating, and
praising our Lord. He has kept up His promise and made His slave victorious, and
He Alone defeated all the clans of (non-believers)."
027 : 024 : Narrated By Ibn Abbas
When the Prophet arrived at Mecca, some boys of the tribe of
Bani 'Abdul Muttalib went to receive him, and the Prophet made one of them ride
in front of him and the other behind him.
027 : 025 : Narrated By Ibn Umar
Whenever Allah's Apostle left for Mecca, he used to pray in
the mosque of Ash-Shajra, and when he returned (to Medina), he used to pray in
the middle of the valley of Dhul-Hulaifa and used to pass the night there till
027 : 026 : Narrated By Anas
The Prophet never returned to his family from a journey at
night. He used to return either in the morning or in the afternoon.
027 : 027 : Narrated By Jabir
The Prophet forbade going to one's family at night (on
arrival from a journey).
027 : 028 : Narrated By Humaid
Anas said, "Whenever Allah's Apostle returned from a journey, he, on seeing the high places of Medina, would make his she-camel proceed faster; and if it were another animal, even then he used to make it proceed faster."
Narrated Humaid that the Prophet used to make it proceed faster out of his
love for Medina.
027 : 029 : Narrated By Anas
As above, but mentioned "the walls of Medina" instead of
"the high places of Medina. Al-Harith bin Umar agrees with Anas.
027 : 030 : Narrated By Abu Ishaq
I heard Al-Bara' saying, "The above Verse was revealed regarding us, for the Ansar on returning from Hajj never entered their houses through the proper doors but from behind. One of the Ansar came and entered through the door and he was taunted for it. Therefore, the following was revealed:
"It is not righteousness That you enter the houses from the back, But the
righteous man is He who fears Allah, Obeys His order and keeps away from What He
has forbidden So, enter houses through the proper doors." (2.189)
027 : 031 : Narrated By Abu Huraira
The Prophet said, "Travelling is a kind of torture as it
prevents one from eating, drinking and sleeping properly. So, when one's needs
are fulfilled, one should return quickly to one's family."
027 : 032 : Narrated By Zaid bin Aslam
From his father, I was with Ibn 'Umar on the way to Mecca,
and he got the news that Safiya bint Abu Ubaid was seriously ill. So, he
hastened his pace, and when the twilight disappeared, he dismounted and offered
the Maghrib and 'Isha prayers together. Then he said, "I saw that whenever the
Prophet had to hasten when traveling, he would delay the Maghrib prayer and join
them together (i.e. offer the Maghrib and the 'Isha prayers together)."
