The Hajj in Islamic law is a group of sacred rites and is one of the pillars upon which Islam is established. Hajj in its two parts, the wajib and the mustahabb, is of great merit and with an ample reward. The obligation of Hajj is a proven subject in the Qur'an and Sunnah and it is among the necessities prescribed in our religion. Its neglect is considered as a great sin if he who neglects it possesses the required characteristics and he knows that it is wajib. Allah the Sublime in the Qur'an said: "Pilgrimage to the House is a duty imposed upon mankind by God, for anyone who can afford a way to do so. Any one who disbelieves will find that God is Transcendent, beyond any need for the Universe".

So for one who would become mustati` at his arrival to Miqat, Hajj will be wajib on him and it is valid to replace Hajjat al-Islam. Financial istita`ah is also considered as a condition if one becomes able to perform Hajj on his arrival at Miqat (e.g. the servants in the caravans), in case that he has also all the other conditions for istita`ah (as maintenance, essentials of

However, if he had intended to obey the real order of the Divine Legislator by imagining that it was the mustahabb order, then his Hajj would be valid in the place of Hajjat al-Islam. b- Physical istita`ah which means physical health and ability.

enter Mecca and delay `Umrat al-tamattu` until the time he could perform it just before Hajj practices. At that time he would do ihram for `Umrat al-tamattu` from the Miqat and after finishing it he would do ihram for Hajj in Mecca.
