History of Hajj
Hajj is a Holy Ritual which is started by one of the Prophet of Allah named as Hazrat Ibrahim (.a s). Allah ordered his Prophet to build Kabbah along his son Hazrat Ismail (a.s). So the both Prophets of Allah build this Holy place named as Kabbah. Then Allah ordered his Prophet to Visit some place faraway to preach Islam. So obeying the order of Allah Hazrat Ibrahim (a.s) did it. Hazrat Ibrahim (a.s) left his son and his wife Hazrat Hajira alone in the desert. In that hot summer and alone on desert the Prophet Ismail (a.s) started crying due to no availability of water. Hazrat Hajira as a mother to his son started searching for water for his son.
In that desert she did not find any water. She climbed the nearest hill named as the “AL-Safa”. But did not find anything. Then she climb another hill named as “Al-Marwah” but did not find anything. In between this she ran between “Safa and Marwah” for his son. When Hazrat Hajira returned she found a Fountain splashing out from ground near his son Hazrat Ismail (a.s). Allah like the act of Hazrat Hajira and made a compulsory pillar of Islam to perform this in their life once.
