What is difference between Hajj and Hajj-e-Akbar?

Answer

(Fatwa: 1202/1202=M/1429)

 

It is famous among people that a hajj occurring on Friday is Hajj-e-Akbar, but it is not proved from any Fiqh books and mujtahid imams. However, the Fiqh and Hadith books state that hajj is hajj-e-akbar (big hajj) while umrah is hajj-e-asghar (small hajj).

Allah (Subhana Wa Ta’ala) knows Best
