Types of haj | 2. Hajj e mabror

Hajj e mabroor
The holy Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wasallam has held the Hajj e Mabroor (Acceptable Hajj) as one of the best deeds. Therefore it was asked from the holy Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wasallam about the best of all deeds.  The Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wasallam said: “Having faith on Allah and his Messenger” then it was questioned as to which deed holds the next best grade? The holy Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wasallam said: “Performing Jihad in the way of Allah.” Again it was asked from him about the next best grade of deeds. Then the holy Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wasallam said: “Hajj Mabroor (Acceptable Hajj).” (Sahih Bukhari, Al-Hajj: 1519).
It has been narrated by Hadrat Ayesha Radhiallahu Anha that she said: “Oh the holy messenger of Allah! As per our thinking, Jihad in the way of Allah is the best deed.” The holy Prophet sallallaahu alaihi wasallam said: “For you, i.e. for women the best of deeds is Hajj Mabroor (Acceptable Hajj).”  (Sahih Bukhari, Al-Hajj 1520).
Hajj Mabroor (Acceptable Hajj) is that one which has been performed with full respect, Taqwa (fear of Allah) and obedience, fulfilling all the commandments so that all the past sins are cleared with the intention of remaining without committing any sin in the future. The honored Muhadditheen and respected Ulema kiraam have opined different praises, which are explained below:
A Hajj during which no any sort of sin has been committed is called Hajj Mabroor (Acceptable Hajj).
A Mabroor Hajj is that one which becomes acceptable by Allah. The sign of this is that the slave Haji hates to commit any sin in the future.
A Hajj Mabroor (Acceptable Hajj) has been that one in which no hypocrisy was present, fame was not sought after, refrained from filthy and sexual talks, sights and action, and has not been quarrelsome with enmity.
Hajj Mabroor (Acceptable Hajj) is that one from which a person emerges better than his earlier life, never trying to commit any sin again.
It has been narrated by Hadrat Syedna Hasan Basari Rahmathullah Alaih that the man after performing a Hajj becomes unconcerned with the world, seeking  Aakirah (Mar’aathul Mafaatih: 6/190).
