Salam Alikom to all,

I hope you are all doing well and I will keep this short.  

Quran explicitly talks about the months of Pilgrimage (Hajj) to be four months (http://www.masjidtucson.org/submission/practices/hajj/foursacredmonths.html).

Does anyone know of the sources as to why the muslims have restricted it to literally 5 days or so? Which causes too much overcrowds and thus stampedes occur?

Jazakallah Khair, Ma' Sallam

As a note of caution - MasjidTucson is part of the Quranists/Quraniyoon group established by Rashid Khalifa who claimed to be a Prophet.

I don't know but I urge you to be careful with the Masjid Tucson site, they are Quranists and are influenced by Rashad Khalifa, who claimed he was a prophet. In fact, Masjid Tucson was founded by Khalifa and the place where was he shot.

Salamun alaykum.

For finding the Islamic laws all the Verses and narrations should be taken into consideration.

As for Hajj, there are some Verses which limit its period to few days such as:

- 22: 27-28:

وَ أَذِّنْ فِي النَّاسِ بِالْحَجِّ يَأْتُوكَ رِجالاً وَ عَلى‏ كُلِّ ضامِرٍ يَأْتينَ مِنْ كُلِّ فَجٍّ عَميقٍ (27)
And proclaim the hajj to people: they shall come to you on foot and on lean camels coming from distant places,
لِيَشْهَدُوا مَنافِعَ لَهُمْ وَ يَذْكُرُوا اسْمَ اللَّهِ في‏ أَيَّامٍ مَعْلُوماتٍ عَلى‏ ما رَزَقَهُمْ مِنْ بَهيمَةِ الْأَنْعامِ فَكُلُوا مِنْها وَ أَطْعِمُوا الْبائِسَ الْفَقيرَ (28)
that they may witness the benefits for them, and mention Allah's Name during the known days over the livestock He has provided them. So eat thereof, and feed the destitute.

- 2: 203:

وَ اذْكُرُوا اللَّهَ في‏ أَيَّامٍ مَعْدُوداتٍ فَمَنْ تَعَجَّلَ في‏ يَوْمَيْنِ فَلا إِثْمَ عَلَيْهِ وَ مَنْ تَأَخَّرَ فَلا إِثْمَ عَلَيْهِ لِمَنِ اتَّقى‏ وَ اتَّقُوا اللَّهَ وَ اعْلَمُوا أَنَّكُمْ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ (203)
Remember Allah in the appointed days. Then whoever hastens off in a couple of days, there is no sin upon him, and whoever delays, there is no sin upon him that for one who has been God wary and be wary of Allah, and know that toward Him you will be mustered.

 

In both Verses, the days refer to special days in the month of Dhi al-Hijjah.

As for 2: 197:

الْحَجُّ أَشْهُرٌ مَعْلُوماتٌ فَمَنْ فَرَضَ فيهِنَّ الْحَجَّ فَلا رَفَثَ وَ لا فُسُوقَ وَ لا جِدالَ فِي الْحَجِّ وَ ما تَفْعَلُوا مِنْ خَيْرٍ يَعْلَمْهُ اللَّهُ وَ تَزَوَّدُوا فَإِنَّ خَيْرَ الزَّادِ التَّقْوى‏ وَ اتَّقُونِ يا أُولِي الْأَلْبابِ (197)
The hajj season is in months well-known; so whoever decides on hajj] pilgrimage [therein,] should know that [there is to be no sexual contact, vicious talk, or disputing during the hajj. And whatever good you do, Allah knows it. And take provision, for indeed the best provision is God wariness. So be wary of Me, O you who possess intellects!

These months refer to Shavval, Dhi al-Qa'dah and Dhi al-Hijjah. The reason why the period of Hajj is extended to some months in this Verse is that some parts of Hajj rituals ('Umrah) can be performed in these 3 months.

Thanks for the info.

"The reason why the period of Hajj is extended to some months in this Verse is that some parts of Hajj rituals ('Umrah) can be performed in these 3 months."

So does this mean that Umrah can only be performed within those 4 months? And what do you mean by Umrah being a part of the Hajj ritual?

Umrat-ut-Tamatu' can only be performed during the season of obligatory pilgrimage, namely, Shawwal, Thil Qa'dah and Thil Hijjah, whereas it is permissible to perform the Umrat-ul-Mufradah during all the months of the year, preferably in Rajab ...

To know more about the differences between Umrat-ut-Tamatu' and Umrat-ul-Mufradah see:

    • Salamun Alykum. I was today going through the videos of spokesperson of Islamic Caliphate such as Anjem Choudary and Abu Rumaysah. They were obsessed for implementing Shariah in UK and everywhere else. They were accusing America and Britain of its immoral policies. But aren't America and Britain the creators of ISIL and Daesh?? What is the scenario? Though ISIS has been finished but the ideology of Islamic Caliphate has not been wiped out and will not be wiped out until the Zuhoor of Imam (ajfs). Because Wahhabism = Islamic Calphate System and its not going to be eradicated. But can someone provide me a chain of events that how Terrorist Organization came into existence and from where they receive funding? And if they are created by Imperialist Powers then why they speak against them and threaten them?
      And Why Shia Militant Groups like Liberation force, Hezbollah and Hashd al Shaabi fighting these Daesh ?   
    • Are mosques in Pakistan mixed ? I mean do shia go without problem to sunni mosques and vice versa? Same here. I love mosques made of stones like this one:
    • Wa aleykumsalaam, Here is what our Aimmah has to say on this regard. 1 - محمد بن يحيى، عن أحمد بن محمد بن عيسى، عن ابن محبوب، عن جميل بن صالح، عن أبي عبيدة، عن أبي جعفر (عليه السلام) قال: إن ناسا أتوا رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) بعد ما أسلموا فقالوا: يا رسول الله أيؤخذ الرجل منا بما كان عمل في الجاهلية بعد إسلامه؟ فقال لهم رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله): من حسن إسلامه وصح يقين إيمانه لم يأخذه الله تبارك وتعالى بما عمل في الجاهلية ومن سخف إسلامه ولم يصح يقين إيمانه أخذه الله تبارك وتعالى بالأول والآخر. Muhammad ibn Yahya has narrated from Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn ‘Isa from ibn Mahbub from Jamil ibn Salih from abu ‘Ubaydah from abu Ja’far(as), who has said the following: “Certain people came to the Messenger of Allah after accepting Islam and said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, will any of us, after accepting Islam, be held responsible for what he had done in the time of ignorance?’ The Messenger of Allah said, ‘Whoever is good in his Islam and corrects the certainty of his belief is not held responsible for his acts in the time of ignorance in the judgment of Allah, the Most Blessed, the Most High. Whoever’s Islam is nonsense and has not corrected the certainty of his belief will be held responsible in the judgment of Allah, the Most Blessed, the Most High, for his past and later deeds.’” Source: al-Kafi by Shaykh Kulayni, Vol 2, Pg 461, H 1.  Al-Mahaasin by Shaykh al-Barqi, Vol 1, Pg 250, H 264. Grading: Allamah Majlisi said hadeeth is "Saheeh" (Authentic) in his Mirat ul Uqool, Vol 11, Pg 383. Shaykh Bahbudi also grades this hadeeth as "Saheeh" (Authentic) in his Saheeh al-Kafi, Vol 1, Pg 132.   2 - علي بن إبر هيم، عن أبيه، عن القاسم بن محمد الجوهري، عن المنقري، عن فضيل بن عياض قال: سألت أبا عبد الله (عليه السلام)، عن الرجل يحسن في الاسلام أيؤاخذ بما عمل في الجاهلية؟ فقال: قال النبي (صلى الله عليه وآله): من أحسن في الاسلام لم يؤاخذ بما عمل في الجاهلية ومن أساء في الاسلام اخذ بالأول والآخر. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from al-Qasim ibn Muhammad al- Jawhari from al-Minqari from Fudayl ibn al-‘Iyad who has said the following: “Once I asked abu ‘Abd Allah(as), ‘Will a man who is good in Islam be held responsible for his deeds in the time of ignorance?’ The Imam said, ‘The Holy Prophet has said, “Whoever is good in Islam will not be held responsible for his deeds in the times of ignorance and anyone who is not good in Islam will be held responsible for his acts of the past and those thereafter.’” Source: al-Kafi by Shaykh Kulayni, Vol 2, Pg 461, H 2.  Wa aleykumsalaam
