Article 68- It is obligatory to say the “quadruple Labbayks” during Ihram with correct Arabic accent and it should be as follows as obligatory precaution:

لَبّیْکَاللّهُمَّ لَبَّیْکَ، لَبَّیْکَ لا شَریکَ لَکَ لَبَّیْکَ، اِنَّالْحَمْدَ و النِّعْمَةَ لَکَ وَ الْمـُلْکَ، لا شَریکَ لَکَ.

Allah! I comply (and obey) you, again I comply you, and one more time I obey you, there is no partner for you, I comply you, solely you deserve all praise and grace and sovereignty are exclusive to you, there is no partner for you!”

And it is better to abstain adding other expression, except those that will be mentioned in Mustahab acts later.

Article 69- If the pilgrim cannot express these word with correct Arabic accent, it is enough that another person says them articulately for him/her and the pilgrim recites them after that person, and if he/she cannot pronounce correctly he/she should say as much as he/she can and express also its meaning as a precaution and a person who has the ability of pronouncing correctly, say the words in behalf of that pilgrim, too.

Article 70- It is obligatory to say Labbayk during Ihram only once (in the way that mentioned before) and after that it is Mustahab to repeat that in different conditions as much as it is possible, it means during getting in and leaving the car, passing low and high lands, after awaking and after prayers and it is better that men recite these words with loud voice.

Article 71- It is obligatory that the pilgrim renounces Labbayk when he/she sees the houses of Mecca during Ihram of Umrah al-Tamattu’, and at the noon of the day of Arafa during Ihram of Hajj, and at the time of seeing Ka’ba in Umrah al-Mufradah (if the pilgrim has gone out of Mecca for Ihram, and if he/she is coming to Mecca from out of the city stops saying Labbayk when he/she is entering the region of Haram).

Article 72- A mute pilgrim points with his/her hand instead of saying “Labbayk” and moves his/her tongue as normal and it is better that another person says Labbayk in behalf of that pilgrim, but it is not obligatory.

Article 73- Children also can become Muhrim for Umrah or Hajj, and if they discern between good and evil they can say “Labbayk” with the intention (Niyyah), and if they do not discern a person makes intention and says Labbayk in behalf of then and whenever a person is unconscious in Miqat it is possible to make intention and say Labbayk in behalf of him/her.

Article 74- Twenty-five acts, which are Haraam for Muhrim, are not Haraam for him/her before saying “Labbayk” even if he/she has made the intention and has worn the clothing of Ihram; therefore, it has no atonement if the pilgrim performs one of the acts that are Haraam for Muhrim before saying Labbayk; in fact, “Labbayk” is like “Allahu Akbar” at the beginning of the prayer that a Muhrim does not enter the state of prayer before saying that, and whenever a pilgrim has doubt that if he/she has said “Labbayk” or not, nothing is also Haraam for him from the prohibited acts of a Muhrim.

Article 75- Whenever a pilgrim is in Miqat and has doubt that if he/she has said Labbayk or not, then he/she should say the Labbayk and if he/she has passed Miqat the he/she can return to Miqat and say it as a precaution and if it is not possible to return then he/she should say it in that place, but if the pilgrim do not know that if he/she has said Labbayk correctly or not, then he/she should consider it as correct and his/her Ihram is correct.
