What is meant by ‘وفي حرم الحج’ (Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim)
This word can be pronounced in two ways:
- Fi Hurumil Hajj, which would mean, during the time, place and conditions of Hajj
- Fi Haramil Hajj, which means we were in a state of sanctity where the restrictions of Hajj applied
(Sahih Muslim with Al Minhaj, Hadith: 2914 and Fathul Bari, Hadith: 1560, vol. 3 pg. 421)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
