They are…

  1. As pure as a new born baby
    “Whoever performs Hajj and does not have sexual relations (with his wife), nor commits sin, nor disputes unjustly (during Hajj), then he returns from Hajj as pure and free from sins as on the day on which his mother gave birth to him.” (Bukhari and Muslim)
  2. The honourable guest of Allah
    ‘The guests of Allah, the Mighty and Sublime, are three: The warrior, the pilgrim performing Hajj, and the pilgrim performing ‘Umrah.'” (An Nasai)
  3. The Ambassadors of Allah
    “The pilgrims performing Hajj and ‘Umrah are a delegation to Allah. If they call upon Him, He will answer them; and if they ask for His forgiveness, He will forgive them.” (Ibn Majah)
  4. The dwellers of Paradise
    “The reward of Hajj Mabrur (the one accepted by Allah) is nothing except Paradise.” (Bukhari)
