Title: How many times Rasulullah Sallahu Alayhi Wasallam performed Hajj?


how many times did the prophet SAW perform the hajj pilgrimage? Is tere any special virtues in the month of hajj like extra rewards of doing good deeds?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

Rasulullah Sallahu Alayhi Wasallam performed many Hajjs before being a prophet and after being a prophet before Hijrah. The actual number of times Rasulullah Sallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam performed Hajj is not known. The Fardh Hajj was performed once in the 10th year after Hijrah which was known as Hajjatul Widaa’ (the farewell Hajj) [1][2].
