Misconception:

Harmain is the ONLY place where our duas are accepted.

Reality:
Haramain is a place where our duas are accepted. There are places very near to us where our duas are accepted.

It is not merely a question of dua...

Everybody knows duas are accepted everywhere. Haramain are amongst شعائر اللہ , and as such, it is part of ‘worship’ to consider them worthy of respect and love. Frequent travel to haramain, or a desire to do so, is an ‘affirmation’ of this faith.

Those who can afford it, and those who fulfil other Fiqhi criteria for Hajj and umra, should certainly do so, particularly those in the west, to keep alive their attachment with the holy places, and therefore with their Din. Learning arabic language and frequent visits to haramain will keep their hearts attached to Din and help safeguard their Iman. Additionally, it will keep giving them an opportunity to meet pilgrims from other parts of the world, refreshing their commitment to the the brotherhood of Muslim ummah, inshaAllah.

Syedena Rasoolullah peace and blessings be upon him, once looking at ‘Baitullah’ in Makkah, said : “By Allah, you are the most beloved of places on Allah’s earth by Allah swt”. When our Rabb loves Makkah, we are supposed to love it too, and one sign of love amongst others, is a desire to visit Haramain frequently, if possible.

There is no doubt that haramain are شعائر اللہ . They are most respected, they shall be protected, if required through sacrifices of our lives.

The subject I am discussing is hinted by members in their earlier posts.

Many go to haram for duas. Is it not possible that the amount spent can be spend on needy among our nears and dears. Many around us are passing through trials. Chronic diseases, cancer, kidney, tumours etc. they are suffering due to non availability of funds. Our help will save their imaan. Pains will be reduced. Many girls are without marriages at the age of 35-40 for lack of resources.

My view is that if we help them, we shall be getting cash duas from depth of their hearts from these souls in distress. Many related to them will also do duas. And we need not ask them to do dua, voluntarily they will shall be do dua.

Urdu books of full of true stores, many postponed their nafl haj or umrah and offered help to the needy with the all the money accumulated for visit. And a angel did haj on behalf of them.
Many such motivating true stories are there.

I have no doubt about your love for Haramain.

Please check how many of those who don’t spend their money for optional hajj and umra, ‘actually’ spend the same or equal amount of money on other worthy and genuine causes that you mentioned ?

I appreciate your concerns though..

It is time now for ulema express to these views to masses. Many among us are not even aware that helping the needy will remove our trials.
Also, it is being told that the suffering of people is due to their bad deeds and we need not help them.

And the misconception must be removed that our duas are accepted only and only in haram.

Many senior ulema are preaching this in their inner circle. My feeling is that this must be widely publicized.

The same logic some liberal Muslims give during dhul-hijjah. Oh why are you spending so much on qurbani, give it to the needy blah blah. Why do you only have problems when it comes to our acts of worship? Why don't you say the same when someone is lavishly spending money on their weddings or when a person spends a fortune on acquiring higher education. Why don't you change your lifestyle and spend that wealth in charity?

Voluntary Hajj is better than charity

Fatwa

All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

If you mean the obligatory charity (i.e. Zakah), then it is better than ‘Umrah without doubt. However, if it is voluntary charity, then, in principle: Hajj and ‘Umrah are better as they involve spending money along with other acts of worship like Tawaaf (circumambulation of the Ka'bah), Sa‘y (walking between Mounts As-Safaa and Al-Marwah), Thikr (remembering and mentioning Allah), prayer, and Talbiyah (the Hajj-related chant).

Nonetheless, if there are people who are in need of a person's charity or if he has needy relatives and he cannot combine giving charity and performing Hajj and ‘Umrah, then charity is better in such a case.

On the other hand, An-Nasafi, the Hanafi scholar may Allah have mercy upon him said, "Hanafi scholars have said that voluntary Hajj is better than charity."

Al-Hattaab the Maaliki scholar may Allah have mercy upon him said, "Maalik was asked whether he preferred Hajj or charity and he replied, 'I prefer Hajj, unless it is a year of famine.'"

Shaykh Al-Islam ibn Taymiyyah may Allah have mercy upon him said, "If a person has needy relatives, giving to them in charity is better and so is the case if there are people who are in need of the charity. If both Hajj and charity are voluntary, then Hajj is better because it is an act of worship that combines both physical and material aspects. Likewise, offering Udh-hiyah (a sacrificial animal given on 'Eed)) and ‘Aqeeqah (a sacrificial animal given for the new-born) is better than giving their value in charity."

Ash-Shawkaani may Allah have mercy upon him said in his commentary on the Hadeeth of the very best deed which was collected by Al-Bukhari and Muslim may Allah have mercy upon them , where the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allah exalt his mention ) (may Allah exalt his mention), mentioned belief then Jihaad then Hajj: "This Hadeeth is proof for those who view that voluntary Hajj is better than charity."

One who ponders over the conditions of the Ummah nowadays realizes that there are many people in need of charity. There are many Muslims all over the world who cannot find food, drink or residence. Thus, giving charity to such people would take precedence over (voluntary) Hajj and ‘Umrah.

Allah Knows best.

Calm down!!
You are going for juma'a prayers, a severe accident happens before you, will you go to prayers because juma'a is fardh on time. Or help the injured.

We don't have control over these people. People who go to nafl haj with their naa-baligh children, stay in Hilton Hotel and spend lavishly, ulema can guide them to spend on needy around them and assure them, duas of weak is similar to your dua in hateem or near door of ka'ba or meezaab e rahmat or riyadul jannah.

That is fatwah. But fatwah changes with circumstances. I know what a few thousand spent can bring smile on faces of tens of people around me.

Yes of course I'll help the injured and will postpone my namaz, that is what Islam has taught me. However I will not go around asking people during normal days to stop going for jummah prayer and visit hospitals at the time of jummah and help the injured and sick patients there. This is just illogical!

Can someone upload here the story of shaykh Rabe bin salman RA postponing his haj for a needy syed girl. This is quoted in story number 69 of Fazail haj by shaykhul hadith Zakariyyah RA.

I had no idea that people have actually started fulfilling what Allama Iqbal RA had asked them to do sarcastically in his couplet.

you are not postponing juma'a or eid prayers you are totally missing them in this case.

Here in India the situation is same. hundreds of affected families are around us and we are moving on with closed eyes.

And qadianis and christian missionaries are misusing this. And it won't affect me, don't stop me from umrah.

Kindly Read this story till end:

Hazrat Rabee bin Sulaymaan R.A says: "I once went for Fajr together
with my brother and a group of other pilgrims. On reaching Kufa. I
went into the town to buy some of the necessities required for the
journey. On the way in a desolate spot I saw a woman dressed like
one of the poor, cutting pieces of meat from a dead mule lying on
the ground: having a natural death. She placed the meat in a basket.
I saw all this; and it grieved me to think that possibly this woman
was taking meat from a dead animal to feed others. Therefore I felt
that I could never remain silent having seen such a thing. I followed
her in such a manner that she did not know of my presence.
In the town she came to a big house which had a very big door.
There she had knocked, and after she had identified herself; four
young girls came to open the door. She went inside and placed the
basket in front of the children. The girls by this time were crying, and
one could see that they were passing through a state of great want
and misfortune. While I listened at the door, I heard the mother say:
"Take this and cook it for yourself to eat; and thank Allah; Verily Allah is He Who has power over all; and He has power to turn men's
hearts."
The girls cut the meat, grilled it and began eating. From where I
stood I felt such anguish that I shouted; "O you servants of Allah, do
not eat it; for Allah's sake!' she shouted back to me; 'Who are you?'
I answered: "I am stranger around here."
She said: "O stranger, what do you desire from us? We, ourselves
are in a bad state and imprisoned by our predestined fate. For three
years now we have had no helper and no earthly maintainer. What
do You want from us?"
I said: "in no religion is it permissible for anyone to eat dead
animals; except among some Zoroastrians (fire-worshippers).'
She replied: "we belong to a family of Rasulullah Sal'am. The father
of my daughters was a noble Sayyid. It was his great desire to get
his daughters married among me of his own class and rank.
Unfortunately before he could do this, he passed away. And soon
what he left for us was exhausted. We know that it is not possible to
eat from the carcass of dead animals, but at a time when
circumstances force one to do so; it is permissible. For four days we
had nothing to eat.'
When I heard her story I was move to tears and, greatly distressed,
I returned from there. When I met my brother again I said to him:
"Brother, I have now, no more the intention of proceeding for Haj."
Hearing these words from me, my brother did his best to persuade
me to carry on. He expounded on the virtues of Haj and told me that
a Haji returns as a newborn babe. I told him not to waste more time
in trying to make me alter my decision, and took my ihraam clothes
and all my goods plus sic hundred dir'hams, and bought with it flour
for two hundred dir'hams; and clothes for another hundred; and sent
all that to the house of the girls, having first hidden the rest of the
money in the flour.
Wen the mother received it she praised Allah greatly and said to me;
'May Allah forgive all your previous and future sins; May Allah give
you the reward of a Haj and grant you a high place in paradise; May
Allah give you a good return for this which you have given us-a
return that will become known to you."
The eldest girl said: "May Allah reward you doubly and forgive your
sins." The second one said: 'May Allah grant you so much more than
what you have given us.' The third one said: 'May Allah raise you up
on the day of Qiyaamah with our grandfather Rasulullah Sal'am. The
youngest said: "O Allah the One that has favored us. You favor him
abundantly soon; and forgive his previous and future sins.'
Hazrat Rabee R.A. continues the story: "the Hajis left and I remained
in kufa. When they returned after Haj, I went to welcome them, hoping to let them make duaa for me. Perhaps Allah would accept
someone's duaa of my behalf. When a group came into sight I felt a
bit of remorse; for having missed Haj; and in this sadness some
tears fell from my eyes. When I met them I said; "May Allah accept
your Ha and reward you for what you have spent." One of them said
to me: "Why do you say that?" what kind of prayer is this?" I replied:
"It is the well wishing duaa for one who has been deprived of the
blessing of being present at his door." He replied: "What surprising
words; how can you now deny having been there?" "Were you not
present with us at Arafaat; You were indeed among us as we threw
stones at Jamaraat; You performed tawaaf with us" I thought; 'This
must be Allah's grace.'
While waiting there the Hajis from my own town arrived, and said to
one of them: "May Allah accept your Haj and reward you for your
exerting yourself and spending in His way." He too spoke me having
been present at Aarafaat, having been at Mina and was surprised
now at my denial of that. One of them came forward and said:
"Brother, but why do you deny?" You were indeed with us in Mecca
and Madina!" at Madina when we came through Baab Jibra'il, you
gave this bag to me as a result of the great crowd around us. On it
was written
Whoever deals with us; shall profit."
'Here take your money bag.'
Hazrat Rabee R.A. says: "I swear by Allah that I had never seen the
money bag in my life. Anyway greatly amazed, I took it home with
me. Having performed Esha salaah and the normal nightly wazeefas,
I lay awake wandering about this strange story about me having
been in pilgrimage while I knew that I had not been there for Haj. At
this thought I fell asleep in a dream I saw Rasulullah Sal'am. I
greeted him and kissed his hand. With a radiant smile he answered
my salaam and said to me;
"O Rabee! How many more witnesses do you require before you
believe that you have performed Haj? Yet you believe not.
Listen! When through the kindness of your heart, you postponed
your Haj and instead gave charity to a lady from among my children'
and when you also gave your provisions to them, I prayed to Allah to
grant you a reward which shall be better and more profitable in
return. Thereupon Allah caused an angel to appear in your form and
commanded the angel to perform haj on your behalf annually and
forever; and in the world Allah had granted you a reward of six
hundred sovereigns in place of the six hundred dirhams you have
spent. Whosoever deals with us; shall profit."
When I woke up from this dream I opened the bag and behold, I
found therein six hundred gold sovereigns. (Rush-Fatus Sawee)
