Hajj Paves Way to Paradise

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: Hajj Paves Way to Paradise: "Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said: "The performance of `Umrah is expiation for the sins committed between it and the previous ones. And the reward for Hajj Mabrur (pilgrimage accepted by Allah) is nothing but Paradise." (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol. 3, Book 27, hadith no. 1)"

I want to look up the Arabic word for "expiation" in this verse- does anyone know of a good online Hadith viewer that shows Arabic-English?

حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ يُوسُفَ، أَخْبَرَنَا مَالِكٌ، عَنْ سُمَىٍّ، مَوْلَى أَبِي بَكْرِ بْنِ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ عَنْ أَبِي صَالِحٍ السَّمَّانِ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم قَالَ ‏"‏ الْعُمْرَةُ إِلَى الْعُمْرَةِ كَفَّارَةٌ لِمَا بَيْنَهُمَا، وَالْحَجُّ الْمَبْرُورُ لَيْسَ لَهُ جَزَاءٌ إِلاَّ الْجَنَّةُ ‏"

Thanks Timothy, where did you get that?

Timothy said...

From memory ;^)

Just kidding. From here, but you can get collections for your computer or phone as well.

Thanks for that link Timothy. I've tried using that site before and have had the hardest time navigating it. It seems like once you choose a book, the 'verse' numbering doesn't match up with any english translations I've seen. I'd love to get the Arabic for this:

Volume 7, Book 70, Number 577:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "The good deeds of any person will not make him enter Paradise." (i.e., None can enter Paradise through his good deeds.) They (the Prophet's companions) said, 'Not even you, O Allah's Apostle?' He said, "Not even myself, unless Allah bestows His favor and mercy on me."

Do you know how to use the site (specifically how to navigate it) or find this specific verse in arabic? Thanks so much!

حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو الْيَمَانِ، أَخْبَرَنَا شُعَيْبٌ، عَنِ الزُّهْرِيِّ، قَالَ أَخْبَرَنِي أَبُو عُبَيْدٍ، مَوْلَى عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ بْنِ عَوْفٍ أَنَّ أَبَا هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ ‏"‏ لَنْ يُدْخِلَ أَحَدًا عَمَلُهُ الْجَنَّةَ ‏"‏‏.‏ قَالُوا وَلاَ أَنْتَ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ قَالَ ‏"‏ لاَ، وَلاَ أَنَا إِلاَّ أَنْ يَتَغَمَّدَنِي اللَّهُ بِفَضْلٍ وَرَحْمَةٍ فَسَدِّدُوا وَقَارِبُوا وَلاَ يَتَمَنَّيَنَّ أَحَدُكُمُ الْمَوْتَ إِمَّا مُحْسِنًا فَلَعَلَّهُ أَنْ يَزْدَادَ خَيْرًا، وَإِمَّا مُسِيئًا فَلَعَلَّهُ أَنْ يَسْتَعْتِبَ ‏"

Radical Lover of God,

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

You cannot go by volume, book, number. Rather, look for the name of the book instead of the number as they are often in different orders. I found your Hadith in another online collection of Al-Bukhari in English in Book 70... at your recommendation. Then looked at the name of the book "Patients." Then found the corresponding book on the website linked above "كتاب المرضى" and found the particular one there.

That word kafaara is a Biblical word, incidentally. It is also a cognate of the Hebrew (Kipur), thus yom kipur = yawm kafaara = day of atonement. Also in the Anglican liturgy in Arabic when the priest is celebrating the eucharist he says, "one holy, perfect, atoning sacrifice..." and kafaara is the word used for atonement.
