Saying Labaik Or The Takbir Whilst Going From Mina To Arafat

Muhammad ath-Thaqafi: One Hadith

[100] From Malik that Muhammad ibn Abi Bakr ath-Thaqafi once asked Anas ibn Malik (Radi Allahu Anhu), while the two of them were going from Mina to Arafa, “What did you use to do on this day when you were with the Messenger of Allah (Sallalahu Alayhi Wa Sallam)?” He said, “Those of us who were saying the talbiya would continue doing so, and no-one disapproved of it, and those of us who were saying ‘Allahu akbar’ would continue doing so, and no-one disapproved of that either.”



Al-Muwatta (Yahya’s narration 1/337 hadith no.760, book 20, chapter 13, hadith no.43), at-Tamhid (13/73, and he said, “This hadith is [Sahih] authentic), al-Istidhkar: (no.710)
