          Second: Saying Labbayk (Talbiyah)

          Issue 132: Saying talbiyah while wearing iḥrām is just like the takbīrat ul-iḥrāmin prayer. When a pilgrim says the talbiyah, he becomes muḥrimand is now prepared to perform the rites of ‘umrah.
          Talbiyah means accepting the invitation of Allah Almighty who has invited qualified people to perform hajj. Therefore, it is worthy that one should pronounce the words of talbiyah with full humility.

          Issue 133: According to the most correct view, the sentences of talbiyah are as follows:

          "لَبّیکَ اللّهُمَّ لَبّیک، لَبّیکَ لا شریکَ لکَ لَبّیک"

          "Labbayk Allāhumma labbayk, labbayka lā sharīka laka labbayk"

          I am present in your court, here I am, O Allah. Here I am. You have no partners. Here I am.
          If one says only this, his iḥrām is correct, however on the basis of mustaḥabbcaution, one should say these mentioned talbiyahs following the above talbiyah:

          "اِنَّ الحَمدَ و النِّعمَةَ لَکَ وَ المُلکَ لَا شَرِيکَ لَکَ لَبَّيکَ "

          "Innal-ḥamda wan-ni‘mata laka wal-mulk, lā sharīka laka labbayk"

          Truly all praise, all favours and the kingdom belong to You. You have no partner, here I am.
          And to observe more caution, one may add:

          " لَبَّيکَ اللّهُمَّ لَبَّيکَ، اِنَّ الحَمدَ وَ النِّعمَةَ لَکَ وَ المُلکَ، لَا شَرِيکَ لَکَ لَبَّيکَ"

          "Labbayk Allāhumma labbayk, innal-ḥamda wan-ni‘mata laka wal-mulk, lā sharīka laka labbayk"

          Here I am, O Allah. Here I am. Truly all praise, all favours and the kingdom belong to You. You have no partner, here I am.

          "لَبَّيکَ ذَا المَعارِج لَبَّيک، لَبَّيکَ داعِياً الي دارِ السَّلامِ لَبَّيکَ، لَبَّيکَ غَفَّارَ الذُنُوبِ لَبَّيکَ، لَبَّيکَ اهلَ التَّلبِيَةِ لَبَّيکَ، لَبَّيکَ ذَا الجَلالِ وَالاکرامِ لَبَّيکَ، لَبَّيکَ تُبدِيُ وَ المَعادُ اِلَيکَ لَبَّيکَ، لَبَّيکَ تَستَغنِي وَ يُفتَقَرُ اِلَيکَ لَبَّيک، لَبَّيکَ مَرهوُباً وَ مَرغُوباً اِلَيکَ لَبَّيکَ، لَبَّيکَ اِلهَ الحَقِّ لَبَّيکَ، لَبَّيکَ ذَا النَّعمَاءِ ِ وَالفَضلٍ الحَسَنِ الجَمِيل لَبَّيکَ ، لَبَّيکَ کَشّافَ الکُرَبِ العِظامِ لَبَّيکَ، لَبَّيکَ عَبدُکَ وَ ابنُ عَبدَيکَ لَبَّيکَ، لَبَّيکَ يا کَريمُ لَبَّيکَ"

          Issue 134: Saying talbiyah once is obligatory but it is mustaḥabb that one repeats it as much as possible for him.

          Issue 135: It is obligatory for a person to pronounce talbiyah correctly. Thus, if a person can learn the pronunciation exactly or somebody may say it word by word so that he says it correctly but he ignors these steps and pronounces it in a wrong way, it would not be enough. But if he cannot learn it due to shortage of time and he cannot say it correctly with somebody dictating, he should pronounce it in any possible way and it is based on caution that he should appoint a representative to say it on his behalf.

          Issue 136: The person who neglects talbiyah purposely is similar to the person who neglects wearing iḥrām in mīqāt purposely.

          Issue 137: The person who does not pronounce talbiyah correctly and has no excuse for it is similar to the man who neglects talbiyah purposely.

          Issue 138: It is obligatory for a person who wears iḥrām for ‘umrah oftamattu‘, to stop saying talbiyah upon seeing the houses of the holy city of Mecca – though these new buildings around the Mecca which are considered a part of it. For a person who wears iḥrām for hajj, it is obligatory to stop talbiyahfrom the noon of the 9th of Dhul-Ḥijjah (the day of Arfah).

          Issue 139: Iḥrām for hajj tamattu‘and its ‘umrah, hajj ifrād and ‘umrah mufradah is materialized only by saying talbiyah, while iḥrām for hajj qirānis achieved by saying talbiyah along with ish‘ār or taqlīd.Ish‘ār is confined to the camel while taqlīd includes other types of sacrifices as well.

          Issue 140: Ish‘ār means cutting the hump of the camel so that it becomes stained with blood and indicates that it is for slaughtering. Taqlīdrefers to hanging a string or a shoe in the neck of the animal by a pilgrim so that it may become clear that it is for slaughtering on the occasion of hajj.
