Q: I heard that embracing one another on the two Eid occasions by the ummahs usually not done at other days is not permissible in Islam. If so, could they not permit the embracing of haajis at their arrival.
A: Embracing a haji is in accordance to the sunnah.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
