Once in a Lifetime

Despite the great significance of Hajj, it is enough to do it only one time in your whole life. Islam is easy and takes into consideration the difficulties that pilgrims go through:
Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that one day the Prophet (Pbuh) addressed people saying:
“O people! Allah has prescribed Hajj upon you, so perform it.“
A man asked, ‘Every year, O Messenger of Allah?’
The Prophet kept silent. When the man repeated his question thrice, the Prophet said: “Had I answered in the affirmative, it would have become a (yearly) obligation, and this would have been beyond your capacity.”
Then he added: “Leave me alone so long as I leave you alone (i.e. do not ask questions about things I didn’t mention). What caused the destruction of the people before you was that they used to ask so many questions, and disagree with their Prophets.
So when I command you to do something, do it to the extent of your ability, and if I forbid you from doing something, avoid it.” (Muslim)
