Whoever dies Performing Hajj, Umrah or in fighting for Allaah’s Cause

WHOEVER DIES PERFORMING HAJJ

Imaam Aboo Ya`laa -rahimahullaah- reported in his ‘Musnad’ (11/238-239/6357):

“Ibraaheem ibn Ziyaad Sabalaan narrated to us: Aboo Mu`aawiyah narrated to us: Muhammad ibn Ishaaq narrated to us: from Jameel ibn Abee Maymoonah: from `Ataa· ibn Yazeed al- Laythee: from Aboo Hurairah, who said: Allaah’s Messenger Peace be upon him) said:

<<Whoever goes out to perform Hajj, and he dies, then Allaah will write for him the reward of a person who performs Hajj until the Day of Resurrection; and whoever goes out to perform `Umrah, and he dies, then Allaah will write for him the reward of one who performs `Umrah until the Day of Resurrection; and whoever goes out as a fighter in Allaah’s cause, and he dies, then Allaah will write for him the reward of one who fights in Allaah’s cause until the Day of Resurrection>>.”

Shaikh al-Albaanee -rahimahullaah- said in Saheehut-Targheeb wat-Tarheeb (no.1114): “Saheeh ligharihi”
