Q 3: some people say that if the Day of ‘Arafah (9th of Dhul-Hijjah) coincides with Friday, as it is this year, anyone who performs Hajj that year will receive the reward of performing Hajj seven times. Is there any evidence for that from the Sunnah?

A: There is no authentic evidence for that. There are also some people who claim that it will be equal to performing Hajj seventy or seventy-two times, but there is no authentic evidence for that either.

May Allah grant us success! May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!
