Hajj & Umrah - Are All Sins Forgiven?
  • Question:

    I want to know that if someone perform Haj or Umrah then is he free from sins or what kinds of sins are forgiven?


    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    The Prophet (SalAllahu alayhi wa salam) said:

    β€œHe who came to this House performing Hajj without speaking or committing indecencies, would return home free from sin as the day his mother bore him.” (Muslim)

    This, along with many ahadeeth, shows that all major and minor sins are forgiven with a complete Hajj.

    However, transgressions towards people fall under the category of debts and still need to be resolved with the injured parties.

    And Allah knows best.
