I would like to know if there is a Hadith stating that whatever you spend for the purpose of ‘Umrah or Hajj, you will be recompensated for it?
Imam Bayhaqi (rahimahullah) has recorded the following narration. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“Those who perform Hajj and ‘Umrah are the delegation of Allah. If they ask, they are granted. If the call unto Allah in du’a, their du’as are answered. If they spend, they will be replaced…”
(Shu’abul Iman, with a weak chain, Hadith: 3809. ‘Allamah Mundhiri has also indicated towards the weakness of the chain, Targhib, vol. 2 pg. 180)
The above Hadith is suitable to quote as is the case with Hadiths of this nature.
The following authentic Hadith could also be viewed as a support:
Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:
“Perform Hajj and ‘Umrah in succession, for they remove poverty…”
(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 810. See the full Hadith and further references here)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
