Visiting The Prophet’s Mosque in Rajab

May 29, 2012 § 1 Comment


Shaikh Uthaimeen, may Allaah have mercy on him said, “Some people believe that visiting the Prophet’s Mosque in [the month of] Rajab has some special merit and they go to it from all over, calling it, ‘The Rajab Visit.’  This is an innovation which has no basis and none of the forerunners spoke about it even those who came after the three generations, because what is apparent is that it was introduced much later, so it is an innovation.

But there is no harm in visiting Madinah in the month of Rajab–but not due to the fact that it is Rajab.

But a person who believes that such a visit performed in Rajab has some special merit has missed the mark and gone astray and he is from the people of innovation.”

Fataawaa Fil-Hajj, p. 660.
