When was the Ka’bah built, and who raised the foundations? And why was it named as such?
If a person had amassed immense wealth made up of trading in haraam, and then repented to Allaah [from that], is it then permissible for him to perform hajj using this wealth, or donate to charity from it, or [even] get married or build a masjid using it?
I acquired some money from haraam means, and I have since repented sincerely to Allaah. After having repented, I feared [my] wealth may be a source of loss for me, as I had also gotten married using this money. I now wish to use this money and perform ‘umrah and hajj with it, so what is the opinion of the shaykh regarding that?
Regarding the ‘umrah, can it be performed on behalf of another, since my father has died without performing the ‘umrah – and I live [too] far away [to do so on his behalf myself]?
What is the ruling regarding [performing] hajj without a [government-issue] permit; there are some [hajj services] groups which don’t have a [government-issue] permit – and they take along with them pilgrims who [also] don’t have a [government-issue] permit. Is such a hajj considered correct? And are these people liable for sin when they fulfill an obligation in this manner?
