Based on the Hadith of Muslim History, scholars from Syafi’iyyah, Malikiyyah and Hanabilah said that it is still legal for toddlers to perform the pilgrimage, but it is considered a sunnah pilgrimage. Why is that? Because the toddler has not carried out one of the obligations of Hajj, namely baligh.

“From the Prophet Muhammad SAW, that he met a group in Rauha’, then he asked “Which group?” They replied: “Muslims.” They asked: “Who are you?” Prophet Muhammad SAW replied “Messenger of Allah SWT.” A woman (among them) raised a small child (showing) to the Prophet Muhammad, then he asked: “Is this (little child) also performing Hajj?” Prophet Muhammad SAW replied: “Yes, and we also get a reward.” (HR. Muslim).

Hopefully this video can be an inspiration for all of us.
