Question

I have not read much about Hajj yet and
intend to go for Hajj this year Inshaa Allah.
Many people tell us that in order to perform
Hajj we must read 40 prayers in al-Masjid al-
Haraam. Is this true? I have 3 children and
do not have anyone to tend to them for such
a long time. Allah (SWT) is the best of
planners but we would like to know if this is
only traditional or compulsory.

Fatwa:
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.

A person who performs Hajj or 'Umrah is
not obliged to perform forty prayers in Al-
Haraam mosque in Makkah or in Madeenah,
and there is no authentic narration, as far as
we know, in this regard, and no scholar has
ever stated that it is an obligation to do so.
On the contrary, there is evidence in the
Sunnah that the prayer of a woman in her
own home was better than her praying
behind the Prophet in the Prophet's
mosque in Madeenah.

Allah Knows best.
