Continuously perform Hajj and ‘Umrah

Question

What is the authenticity of the following narration?

“Continue performing Hajj and Umrah for those two remove poverty”

 

Answer

The full narration in question is as follows:

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 and sins just as the bellows remove filth from iron, gold, and silver. There is no reward for an accepted Hajj except Jannah”

(Sunan Tirmidhi, Hadith: 810, Sunan Nasai; Al Mujtaba, Hadith: 2631)

 

Imam Tirmidhi and Imam Ibn Hibban (rahimahumallah) have declared the Hadith authentic.

(Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 3693)

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
