What year was Hajj ordained
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
The majority of the scholars in Islam are of the opinion that the Hajj was ordained as obligatory unto the believers in the 9th year after Hijrah; but there are a few scholars who opine that the obligation of Hajj was ordained in the 6th year after Hijrah. Allah Alone Knows Best.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
