Exactly brother.  I think it can be taken as a subjective issue.  Some Quran-alone followers might want to trust the traditional information on the names of the months and decide to perform Hajj during any of them, because after all the Quran mentions "months" for Hajj and not month.  But if you ask me personally, with my distrust for Hadith, I would prefer pilgrimage only during Zil-Hajj.  Though tradition also mentions to perform Hajj only on month of Zil-Hajj, my reason is not that.  I prefer to stick to Zil-Hajj on the safer side .. because the Quran does not mention the names of the other 3 months.  However, I would view the entire month of Zil-Hajj as valid for pilgrimage, not just the first 10 days because the Quran also gives no reasons to conclude that only 10 days of Zil-Hajj are allowed for pilgrimage.

Salams dear sisters and brother.  I loved this thread.  "They say New York never sleeps, they haven't seen Mekkah yet."  LOL, so true!  And that excellent point br. TS brought up on Hajj where the Quran mentions "months" not month.  Sis Heba's conclusion was safest. 

The other point I want to ask is about Ihram.  Of course we know it's only for men.  How far is it Quranic?  I don't know of any references of wearing Ihram for Hajj in the Quran.  Obviously, both men and women must be modestly dressed as Allah has commanded they must at all times.  So how did the idea of Ihram come about?

Wa'salaam dear Sister Ruhi.  You're right.  While it's absolutely essential to be properly covered - for both men and women - in accordance to the rules of modesty already elucidated in the Quran, 'Ihram' (dress code for men) is a purely traditional and senseless thing never mentioned in the Quran.  Actually the literal meaning of the word Ihram alludes to abstaining.  In Arabic it means abstention.  According to traditional information, men require to wear two seamless white wrappings during Hajj; one worn around the waist and the other wrapped over the shoulder. This garment is supposed to be part of the state of Ihram during Hajj.  Probably symbolic of abstaining from fancy garments.  However, the point is, the list of requirements for ‘Ihram’ or abstention is given in the Quran, and it does not include this clothing for men. The abstentions mentioned in the Quran during Hajj are abstentions from war, hunting, sex, cutting one’s hair (head to be shaven at the end of Hajj), misconduct and arguments.  Thus, "Ihram" referring to the white wrapping is not a Quranic law.

Right on Sister Zeynab.  That's precisely it.  Moreover I've also heard people say that the Ihram wrapping is supposed to represent the white shroud as the wrappings must be seamless, no tailor stitches, not even a safety pin to tie the wrappings together.  But the Quran does not mention any such concepts.

Yes brother, I also heard one of my uncles say this ..... that it's a representation of the shroud.  But Hajj is for worshiping Allah, for reminding us of the Hereafter and cleansing ourselves of our sins with the realization of not repeating them.  The idea of putting on a garment resembling a shroud is quite unconnected with Hajj. As you said, the Quran makes no such references at all.

Plenty of thanks for the useful info dear sister and brother.  These are the points I had in mind too and needed a confirmation from you folks. 

In fact, the carelessness with which many men wrap the Ihram often looks  indecent with large parts of their hairy chests and backs showing.  This is NOT modesty and believing men must not be dressed as such any time, let alone at the time of worshiping Allah.

Wrapping the unstitched shroud around the dead is something different.  A dead person does not move around so the shroud stays intact.  But that doesn't mean those who're living must wear it .... and during Hajj one is constantly walking and moving about.

Yes, correct Sister Ruhi.  That too is a very logical point. 

You're welcomed Sister.

Time flies.   End August 2017 and we are going through the 10 days of the month of Hajj.  Day of Arafah is on August 31.  Hajj will culminate on September 1 with pilgrims required to sacrifice an animal for charitable purposes or donate its equivalent in cash.  A non-Quranic celebration by the Muslim world on the 10th day of Hajj is Eid-al-Adha requiring the sacrifice of animal as charity.  Unfortunately very little goes to charity.  Mostly this tradition denotes sumptuous lunches or dinners among the well-to-do.   If you observe Eid-al-Azha truly for purposes of charity, it's fine - either sacrificing an animal or giving the equivalent in cash to the needy.  Secondly, on the day of Arafah (9th day of Hajj) our jurists say fasting is recommended for those not performing Hajj.  If you're not performing Hajj and you find solace in fasting on 9th of Hajj, do so by all means.  However, it's not obligatory and not a Quranic requirement like fasting in Ramadan.

Thank you brother.  I think fasting on Day of Arafah is a very good idea.  Yes, it's not in the Quran but extra worship on a day like this .. particularly if one is not able to perform Hajj ... is always a benefit for the soul which Allah Almighty will take into account, if He wills.  Alhumdulilah.

Yeah brother, sister, I'm fasting today .. Youm-e-Arafat.  Not obligatory but a nice day to refresh and awaken your soul with fasting.  Some charity to the needy (if one can afford) would brighten the event.  May Allah Almighty accept.  Ameen ya Rab-al-Alameen. Ameen.
