"The Hajj is when Muslims perform the Hajj"
this statement by Ibn Taymiyyah, is this a
Hadeeth? If it is, then from which Hadeeth
source? If this is not a Hadeeth, just an
opinion by Shaykh Ibn Taymiyyah then I want
to know under which subject and what
occasion he said so. Also what this opinion
means. Please inform me.

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the
Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of
worship except Allah, and that Muhammad
is His Slave and Messenger.

We could not find what the questioner has
mentioned neither in the books of Sunnah,
nor in the books of Ibn Taymiyyah . So,
we do not know its source. It is probable,
however, that the questioner meant the
narration reported by At-Tirmithi which
was narrated by 'Aa'ishah , may Allah be
pleased with her, as she said: ''The Prophet
said: ''Eed Al-Fitr is when people break
their fasting, and 'Eed Al-Adh-Haa is when
people slaughter their sacrifice''. So the
narration does not state "and the Hajj is
when people perform Hajj."

Therefore, if this is the intended narration, it
was stated by Ibn Taymiyyah when he
was speaking about the sighting of the moon
of Thul-Hijjah and the standing of pilgrims
on the mount 'Arafah on the tenth day by
mistake, is still acceptable from them (that
serves instead of the 9 th day of Thul-Hijjah).

Allah knows best.
