The rites and rituals of Umrah and Hajj were first set by ALLAH Almighty during the time of the Hazrat Ibraheem (AS) and ALLAH Almighty gave Him the task to construct the Holy Kaaba along with His son Hazrat Ismaeel (AS). However, as the time passes, both the pattern of the Hajj and Umrah rites were altered by them. As idolatry was on peak and spread all over Arabia, Holy Kaaba began to lose the holiness and sanctity and the idolaters covered the walls of Holy Kaaba with paintings and poems. Initially, during the period of Umrah and Hajj, sacrifices were also done in the name of God. The bloods of the animals were poured on the walls of Holy Kaaba and the fleshes of animals were hanged. Idolaters arranged poetry competitions there and the poets would praise the splendour and bravery of the warriors and wars.
Then to restore the sanctity of Holy Kaaba a series of teachings of the Hazrat Ibraheem (AS) and their forefathers was taught to the pilgrims and devotees who came for the intention of performing Hajj. Then time comes when actual message of ‘true monotheism’ or Tawheed spread in Arabia, which Hazrat Ibraheem (AS) also spread and the laws of ALLAH Almighty was established. Once again Holy Kaaba became the sacred and pure holy center of worshipping the one True God ALLAH Almighty.
Our beloved Prophet (PBUH), smashes idol and not only frees Holy Kaaba from all the impurities, but also reinstated all the actual rites of Hajj with permission of ALLAH Almighty. Competitions of poetry etc and animal sacrifices and blood poured on walls of Holy Kaaba were stopped because it made clear to all that it’s not the meat, flesh or the blood that pleases ALLAH Almighty, but the intention, Taqwaa or prayer, worships reaches Him.
