Al-Kāfi - Volume 4 > Months of al-Hajj
Hadith #1

1ـ عِدَّةٌ مِنْ أَصْحَابِنَا عَنْ سَهْلِ بْنِ زِيَادٍ عَنْ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ أَبِي نَصْرٍ عَنْ مُثَنًّى الْحَنَّاطِ عَنْ زُرَارَةَ عَنْ أَبِي جَعْفَرٍ (عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَم) قَالَ الْحَجُّ أَشْهُرٌ مَعْلُوماتٌ شَوَّالٌ وَذُو الْقَعْدَةِ وَذُو الْحِجَّةِ لَيْسَ لأَحَدٍ أَنْ يَحُجُّ فِيمَا سِوَاهُنَّ.

1. A number of our people have narrated from Sahl ibn Ziyad from Ahmad ibn Muhammad from ibn abu Nasr from Muthanna’ al- Hannat from Zurarah who has said the following: “Abu Ja‘far, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘The months of al-Hajj are well known’ (2:197); they are Shawwal, Dhu al-Qa’dah and Dhu al-Hajj ah. No one has the right to perform al-Hajj in months other than these ones.’”
