Forgiveness of mother milk.

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)


One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

My question is, In India there is a system called Forgiveness of mother's milk, when she is going for Hajj. it means that she mother forgives us for the milk that she feeds in our infancy and while she plans for Hajj or when her children plan for Hajj they must get the forgiveness of mother's milk. This sounds different in Islam, its an urgent query...

Forgiveness of mother milk

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Respected brother in Islam, to the best of our knowledge, there absolutely is no such thing as a mother forgiving her milk to her offspring, or her off-spring asking their mother to forgive them her milk when going to Hajj or otherwise….such an act, or rite, or ritual, or custom does not find any mention in the Glorious Quran or the authentic and established Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws).  And it would obviously not behove a believer who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day to follow or believe in such self-invented and innovated rituals and customs.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
