Hadith -- Bakr Eid

Narrated Ibn 'Umar (Radi-Allahu 'anhu):

During the last Hajj (Hajj-al-Wada') of Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu 'Alaihi
Wa Sallam) he performed 'Umra and Hajj. He drove a Hadi along with him from
Dhul-Hulaifa. Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) started by
assuming Ihram for 'Umra and Hajj. And the people, too, performed the 'Umra
and Hajj along with the Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam). Some of
them brought the Hadi and drove it along with them, while the others did

So, when the Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) arrived at Makkah he
said to the people, "Whoever among you has driven the Hadi, should not
finish his Ihram till he completes his Hajj. And whoever among you has not
(driven) the Hadi with him, should perform Tawaf of the Ka'ba and the Tawaf
between Safa and Marwa, then cut short his hair and finish his Ihram, and
should later assume Ihram for Hajj; but he must offer a Hadi (sacrifice);
and if anyone cannot afford a Hadi, he should fast for three days during
the Hajj and seven days when he returns home.

The Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) performed Tawaf of the Ka'ba on
his arrival (at Makkah); he touched the (Black Stone) corner first of all
and then did Ramal (fast walking with moving of the shoulders) during the
first three rounds round the Ka'ba, and during the last four rounds he
walked. After finishing Tawaf of the Ka'ba, he offered a two Rakat prayer
at Maqam Ibrahim, and after finishing the prayer he went to Safa and Marwa
and performed seven rounds of Tawaf between them and did not do any deed
forbidden because of Ihram, till he finished all the ceremonies of his Hajj
and sacrificed his Hadi on the day of Nahr (10th day of Dhul-Hijja). He
then hastened onwards (to Makkah) and performed Tawaf of the Ka'ba and then
everything that was forbidden because of Ihram became permissible. Those
who took and drove the Hadi with them did the same as Allah's Apostle
(Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) did.
