From: Sahih Bukhari
Chapter No. 26, Pilgrimage (Hajj)
Hadith No: 782
Narrated/Authority of Abu Musa
came upon Allah's Apostle when he was at Al-Bat-ha. He asked me, "Have you intended to perform the Hajj?" I replied in the affirmative. He asked, "For what have you assumed lhram?" I replied," I have assumed Ihram with the same intention as that of the Prophet." The Prophet said, "You have done well! Go and perform Tawaf round the Kaaba and between Safa and Marwa." Then I went to one of the women of Bani Qais and she took out lice from my head. Later, I assumed the Ihram for Hajj. So, I used to give this verdict to the people till the caliphate of Umar. When I told him about it, he said, "If we take (follow) the Holy Book, then it orders us to complete Hajj and Umra (Hajj-at-Tamattu) and if we follow the tradition of Allah's Apostle then Allah's Apostle did not finish his lhram till the Hadi had reached its destination (had been slaughtered). (i.e. Hajj al Qiran). (See Hadith No. 630)
