Is going to madinah and doing ziyarah obligatory after Hajj?: I would like to know is doing ziyarah of the prophets at madinah obligatory after Hajj?.
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Dear Burhan Bhai, As salaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatahu.
I would like to know is doing ziyarah of the prophets at madinah obligatory after Hajj?.. I have heard a hadith which says...The prophet has said....jisme hajj ke bad meri ziyarat nahi ki usne mere pe zulm kiya... Please quote authentic hadith.
Waiting for your reply.

Visit medina during hajj obligatory
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.
Going to Madinah or praying in the Prophets (saws) Mosque in Madinah is not a requirement or obligation or a rite of Hajj. If one did all their Hajj rites as guided by Allah and His Messenger (saws) perfectly, and for any reason whatsoever was not able to, or chose not to go/visit the Prophets (saws) Mosque in Madinah, it would not effect their rewards for their Hajj in the least.
Visiting Madina or offering prayer at the Prophets (saws) Mosque in Madinah is not amongst the prescribed manasiks (rites) of Hajj.
To the best of our knowledge, we have not come across any authentic hadith which states that visiting Madinah during the Hajj is obligatory, or that not visiting Madinah during Hajj would be injustice to the Prophet (saws).
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is only ones. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
