Du’a when welcoming a Haji

Question

What du’a can we recite when we welcome a returning Haji?

 

Answer

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Umar (radiyallahu’anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said the following to a returning Haji:

قَبِلَ اللهُ حَجَّك ، وَغَفَرَ ذَنْبَكَ، وَاَخْلَفَ نَفَقَتَكَ

‘Qabilallahu hajjaka, wa ghafara dhambaka, wa akhlafa nafaqatak.’

Translation: May Allah accept your Haj, may He forgive your sins and may He replace your expenditure.

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
