“For the Hajj are the well-known months if someone fulfills that duty Let there be no obscenity, no evil, no disputes in the Hajj. Whatever you do, make sure ALLAH knows. ”
In this verse, the word ‘Rafath‘ is used, which means obscene language. This can be of two different types, First of all, there is more strongly forbidden.

Ayah Number Three:
“This day I have perfected your religion for you, completed my favor upon you; and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. ”
One of the great virtues of Hajj is that the verse announcing the completion of Deen was revealed at the time of Hajj. Hazrat Imam Ghazali R.A. He writes in his ‘Ilyas‘: Hajj is one of the fundamental principles of Islam. The foundation of Islam was completed and on it, the Deen was finished. It was at the time of Hajj that this Ayah was revealed. Once a scholar among the Jews said to Hazrat Umar R.A: “In the Qur’an, you read a certain verse, if that verse had been revealed. for us, we would have celebrated that day annually. “Hazrat Umar R.A. He asked: “What verse is that?” He replied:
“Al Yauma akmaltu lakum Deenakum”(The verse under discussion)
Hazrat Umar R.A said” Verily I remember the day and place where this verse was revealed (and apart of the revelation of this verse, which was a Friday) It was already a Double celebration for us. First, it was Friday, a day of celebration for all.
Muslims and secondly, it was the day of Arafat, a day of celebration for the pilgrims Hazrat Umar R.A. He further stated that this verse was revealed in a Friday after Asar on the day of Arafat while Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was sitting on his camel. It is also stated in the Hadith. that no verses were revealed after this regarding Halaal and Haraam When this verse was revealed, Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was sitting on his camel. The camel was forced to sit down. because of the great weight that descends on him because of the revelation. This is what normally happened. Hazrat Ayesha R.A. affirms that, when Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was sitting on a camel, It is used to lower the neck by not being able to lift it or move a step until the revelation had finished. Hazrat Abdullah Ibn Umar R.A. relates of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) that when the revelation came upon him, He was afraid of losing his life. (Durre Mansoor) Hazrat Zaid Ibn Thabit
RA. affirms that when verse 95 was revealed in Surah 4 I was sitting next to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) then became one in a semi-state consciousness and put his height above mine, whose weight was so Great that I felt that my leg would break. (Durre Mansoor) this was due to the greatest of the words of ALLAH, which today we read very casually and
Superficially as if it were an ordinary discourse.
