Frequently Performing Hajj & Umrah
One of the greatest blessings of Allah and the easiest ways to increase your wealth is the frequent performing of Hajj and Umrah. When a person takes the time and effort to travel to Makkah, and spends of his wealth for the pleasure of Allah, then Allah rewards him by increasing his rizq.
One of the many proofs that performing Hajj and Umrah frequently increases your wealth is in this hadith reported by ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud where he said that he heard the prophet say:
“Follow up between Hajj and Umrah (i.e. continually repeat the performance) because they both eliminate poverty and sins just like a furnace eliminates the dirty impurities of iron, gold and silver. And an accepted Hajj has no reward less than paradise!”
Reported by al-Tirmidhi in his Sunan.
In this beautiful Hadith, the Prophet (SAW) encouraged the muslims to follow up one Hajj after another, and one Umrah after another, for the rewards of this small deed are great. Not only will a person increase his rizq, he will also have his sins removed, just as a burning furnace refines iron, gold and silver from impurities!
And Allah knows best.
