1-   have you not ever wished to perform hajj? do you not want your sins forgiven? do you not wish to be sinless as on the day your mother gave birth to you? imagine this great bounty, about which the prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  allaah exalt his mention ), said: “whoever performs hajj and does not commit any obscenity nor commit any evil, will return as sinless as a new-born child.” [al-bukhaari and muslim]
2-   do you want to have a great reward and limitless bounty, in addition to experiencing what no ear has ever heard, no eye has ever seen and no heart has ever imagined? certainly yes; then, contemplate the hadeeth (narration) in which the prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  allaah exalt his mention ), said: “(the performance of) ‘umrah is an expiation for the sins committed between it and the previous ‘umrah; and the reward of hajj mabroor (i.e., an accepted hajj) is nothing but paradise.” [al-bukhaari and muslim]
3-   do you not want to be rich? then, listen to the prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  allaah exalt his mention ), who said: “make hajj and ‘umrah follow each other closely, for they remove poverty and sins as a blacksmith's bellows removes impurities from iron.” [ibn maajah; al-albaani: saheeh]
4-   do you want to be among the best of all people on earth and draw closer to allaah the exalted through doing good deeds? then, contemplate the answer of the prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  allaah exalt his mention ), when he was asked, "which deed is the best?'' he replied: "faith in allaah and his messenger.'' then he was asked, "what is next?'' he replied: "jihaad (holy fighting) in the cause of allaah.'' then he was asked, "what is after that?'' he replied: "hajj mabroor (an accepted pilgrimage).” [an-nasaa’i; al-albaani: saheeh]
5-   dear sister, do you not want to be granted the reward of jihaad? do you not want to have the highest rewards from the creator of the heavens and the earth? our mother ‘aa’ishah  may  allaah  be  pleased  with  her asked the prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  allaah exalt his mention ), “o messenger of allaah! we consider jihaad as the best deed, should we not, then, go for jihaad?''the messenger,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  allaah exalt his mention ), said: "the best and most beautiful jihaad for you (women) is hajj mabroor (i.e., one accepted by allaah) and then abide in your houses.'' she added, “after hearing that from the prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  allaah exalt his mention ) i can never leave hajj.”[al-bukhaari]
the prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  allaah exalt his mention ), also said: “pilgrimage is the jihaad for the old, the weak, and the women." [an-nasaa’i; al-albaani: hasan]
6-   do you not want to worship allaah the almighty with all the other creatures and be a reason for making the whole universe worship allaah the almighty? the prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  allaah exalt his mention ), said: “no muslim raises his voice with talbiyah without all on his right and left of stones, or trees, or clods of earth, doing the same till the earth is traversed on both sides.” [at-tirmithi; al-albaani: saheeh]
7-   do you not want to be emancipated from hell and have all your sins forgiven and good deeds multiplied? the prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  allaah exalt his mention ), said: “if anyone goes round this house for a week and counts his circuits, it will be like setting free a slave….no one will place one foot on the ground and raise the other without allaah removing a sin from him on account of it and recording a blessing for him on account of it.” [at-tirmithi; al-albaani: saheeh]
‘ubayd bin ‘umayr  may  allaah  be  pleased  with  him said, “ibn ‘umar used to press towards the two corners in a manner in which i had not seen any of the companions of the messenger of allaah  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  allaah exalt his mention ) press. he said, "if i do so, it is because i heard the messenger of allaah  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  allaah exalt his mention ) say that stroking them is an atonement for sins….”[at-tirmithi; al-albaani: saheeh]
8-   do you not like to draw closer to allaah the almighty and enjoy the bliss of being a close friend of the lord? {and if the deceased was of those brought near to allaah * then [for him is] rest and bounty and a garden of pleasure.}[quran 56:89] ‘
the prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  allaah exalt his mention ), said: “there is no day when allaah sets free more servants from hell fire than the day of ‘arafah. he draws near, then praises them to the angels, saying: what do they seek?” [muslim]
9-   do you not want to have your supplication answered? the prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  allaah exalt his mention ), said: “the one who is performing hajj and the one who is performing ‘umrah are the guests of allaah; he invited them and they responded; then they asked him and he gave them what they asked for.” [al-bazzaar; al-albaani: hasan]
10-               is it possible that you can be satisfied with deprivation?
allaah, the almighty, says in a qudsi hadeeth (sacred narration): “the slave whom i have endowed with a healthy body and well-being and then five years pass without him visiting me, is truly deprived.” [ibn hibbaan; al-albaani: saheeh]
