Hajj – a Lesson in Submission

By Hadhrat Mawlānā Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullāh

On 6th Dhul Hijjah after the Jumu'ah Salāh, we arrived at Dhul Hulayfah, outside Madīnah, and made preparations to enter into ihrām. Dhul Hulayfah was chosen because it was where Rasūlullāh sallallāhu 'alayhi wasallam and his companions radhiyallāhu 'anhum had entered the state of ihrām. It was our desire to begin the hajj by observing this sunnah of Rasūlullāh sallallāhu 'alayhi wasallam. The thought persisted in my mind that the beloved of Allāh performed only one Hajj during his lifetime, and Allāh had chosen this place for him to enter into ihrām. There could not have been a better place for this act.

After making all the preparations, attired in only two sheets, we performed two rak'āt, made the intention for Hajj and recited the talbiyah:

Here I am at Your service, O Rabb, here I am. Here I am, no partner do You have, here I am. Truly, the Praise and the Favour is Yours, and the Sovereignty. No partner do You have.
It is impossible to express how I felt at that moment. Tears trickled down my cheeks wetting my beard. In my mind echoed the thought: 'You are so careless in regard to the Dīn of Allāh ta'ālā. You are not worthy of being invited by Allāh ta'ālā to His Blessed House. How Merciful and Kind is your Creator that despite all your negligence and shortcomings He has listed you amongst the hujjāj of 1426.'
