making the talbiyyah as a group in chorus
*Please appropriately reference
this fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
Question: What is the ruling regarding making
as a group in chorus?
of the pilgrims make the talbiyyah
as a group in chorus, so one of them is either at the front,
middle or behind and makes the talbiyyah
whilst all of them follow him in chorus. This has not been
mentioned on the authority of (any of) the companions. Rather,
Anas Ibn Maalik (radhi-yallaahu
were with the Prophet (sal-Allaahu
`alayhe wa sallam) (on the Hajj al-Wadaa' (farewell pilgrimage))
and from amongst us were those who recited "Allaahu Akbar"
and those who recited "Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah" and those who
reicted the talbiyyah)).
is (what has been) legislated for the Muslims, whereby each
one then makes talbiyyah
on his own without joining together with others.
