Ḥajjat al-Wadā

Ḥajjat al-Wadāʿ was the #onlyHajj journey of the Prophet (s) after Hijra that occurred in 10/632. After Hijra, the Prophet (s) went to Mecca for ‘umra three times;[1] but, according to historians and hadith scholars, he (s) only once attended hajj rituals and it was few months before he (s) passed away.[2] Since, this hajj took place in the last year of his life, the Prophet (s) made farewell to people and it became known as Hajjat al-Wada’ (Hajj of Farewell).
