Q 33: What is the textual proof that Pilgrimage (Hajj) is compulsory?

A ---Allah, Most High says:

 {And perform properly (i.e. all the ceremonies according to the ways of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)), the Hajj and 'Umrah for Allah}. 

(Al-Baqarah, 196)

Allah says: {And Hajj (pilgrimage to Mecca) to the House (Ka` bah) is a duty that mankind owes to Allah, those who can afford the expenses (for one's conveyance, provision and residence)}.

 (Al' Imran, 97)

The Prophet (Peace be upon him) says: "O people, Allah has made Hajj obligatory for you, so perform Hajj ".

(Sahih Bukhari)

He (Peace be upon him) says: " (The superstructure of) Islam is raised on five (pillars): The Oneness of Allah, performance of Prayer, pay­ment of Zakah, fast of Ramadan, and Pilgrimage (to Mecca) ".

(Sahih Bukhari)
