Conditions of Hajj For women

 It is narrated that Ayesha (RA) said, “O Allah’s Messenger (PBUH)! We consider Jihad as the best deed. Should we not fight in Allah’s Cause?” He said, “The best Jihad (for women) is Hajj-e-Mabrur (i.e. Hajj which is done according to the Prophet’s tradition and is accepted by Allah). 

Abdullah Ibne Abbas (RA) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) who wants to perform Hajj, he should hurry up, because he does not know what kinds of excuses may expose to him. (Musnad Ahmad) 


1. To be a Muslim
2. He should be wise i.e. do not be mad
3. To be an adult
4. To be free
5. Affordability (having power and ability) To be days of Hajj
6. Should be no obstacles from the government
7. To be healthy and Wealthy
8. Ways should be safe and secure.
9. She should be accompanied by a Mehram (unmarriageable kin) or husband.
10.  She shouldn’t be in the state of Iddat (waiting period). 

Clarification: Some scholars have counted the last five conditions 6 to 10, namely (to be no obstacles from government, to be healthy, the ways should be safe, woman should be accompanied by a Mehram (unmarriageable kin) or husband and not to be in Iddat (waiting period) as performance compulsions, i.e. excluding these five conditions, Hajj becomes obligatory, But, since he/she is unable to perform, this is why, such person either has to cause perform his/her substitute hajj or make a will or when all the hurdles are removed, he/she should himself perform Hajj. 

Conditions of Hajj For women

Hajj like Salah, Fasting and Zakat is an important cardinal pillar of Islam. It is obligatory once in the whole life on a person who owns that much of wealth which can enable him to travel easily from his house to the holy Makkah and can afford the expenses of his family till his return.

Obligation of Hajj by the holy Qur’an:
As a right of Allah, it is obligatory on the people to perform Hajj of the House – on everyone who has the ability to manage (his) way to it. If one disbelieves, then Allah is independent of all the worlds. (Aale Imran: 97).

Narrated Ibne ‘Umar (RA): Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) Said:
Islam is based on (the following) five (principles):
1. To testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and Muhammad is Allah’s Messenger (PBUH).
2. To offer the (compulsory congregational) salahs dutifully and perfectly.
3. To pay Zakat (i.e. obligatory charity).
4. To perform Hajj (i.e. Pilgrimage to Makkah)
5. To observe fast during the month of Ramadan.  (Bukhari & Muslim) 

It is narrated that ‘Abdullah (RA) said: “The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: “Perform Hajj and ‘Umrah consecutively, for they remove poverty and sins as the bellows removes impurity from the iron.’’ (Ibne Majah) 

The Hajj is a pilgrimage to Mecca. It is currently the largest annual pilgrimage in the world, and is the fifth pillar* of Islam, a moral obligation that must be carried out at least once in their lifetime by every able-bodied Muslim who can afford to do so. The Hajj is a demonstration of the solidarity of the Muslim people, and their submission to Allah (God). Shahadah (Profession of Faith), Salah (prayers), Zakat(Giving to the poor and needy), Ṣawm- Fasting during Ramadan, Hajj - Pilgrimage to Mecca

The pilgrimage occurs from the 7th to 13th day of Dhu al-Hijjah, the 12th month of the Islamic calendar. Because the Islamic calendar is a lunar calendar, eleven days shorter than the Gregorian calendar used in the Western world, the Gregorian date of the Hajj changes from year to year. In 2007, the Hajj was from December 17–21; in 2008 from December 6–10, and in 2009 will be November 25–29.In 2015 Sep End of month was Hajj, In 2016 Sep Month was Hajj (Dhu al Hijjah)
