Ukaz, Majanna and Dhul-Majaz, Markets From Jahiliyyah

Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas (raa): ‘Ukaz, Majanna and Dhul-Majaz were market-places in the Pre-lslamic period of ignorance (Jahiliyyah).

When Islam came, Muslims felt that marketing there might be a sin. So, the Divine Inspiration came:

Al Baqarah – Surah 2. The Cow

[2:198] “There is no harm for you to seek the bounty of your Lord (in the seasons of Hajj).”

Ibn ‘Abbas recited the Verse in this way.

Sales and Trade – Sahih Bukhari: Book 34: Volume 3, Book 34, Number 266
