Expenses (36-38)

Bismihi Ta’ala

Ahaadeeth and Sunnats of Traveling

The reward for expenses incurred for Hajj or ‘Umrah travels

36.)   Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) said : “The reward for spending for Hajj is equivalent to the reward for spending in Jihaad; one (dirham or dinaar, etc) is multiplied seven hundred times.”
[Hazrat Buraydah (RA) ]

37.)    Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) said: “Those traveling to perform Hajj and ‘Umrah are the guests of Allah. He grants them what they ask for, answers their supplications, and replaces what they had spent, one to a thousand fold.”
[Hazrat Abu Hurairah(RA) ]

38.)   Nabi (Sallallaahu ‘alayhi waSallam) said to Sayyidah Ayesha (RA) during her ‘Umrah : ‘Your reward will be according to the hardships endured and the expenses incurred (to fulfill this obligation).”

Note : The above Ahaadeeth indicate that the reward for spending for Hajj and ‘Umrah is unlike that of normal charity. A person receives up to a thousand fold for each penny spent in this cause.
