Hajj and Umrah is a journey of a life time. When a Muslim has a certain amount of money, it becomes obligatory upon them. A Muslim will be accountable if he did not perform Hajj, after it became an obligation upon him. Therefore, we help pilgrims to perform Hajj and complete this spiritual journey purely, according to Quran and Sunnah. It is one of the major events in the Islamic calendar. Performing Hajj is compulsory upon all Muslims at least once in their lifetime, if they have acquired the means. Hajj is the largest gathering of Muslims from all around the planet. It is a sign of unity and the process of showing brotherhood, in Islam and their submission to the one and only God- (Allah)(s.w.t). One of the purposes of the rites and ceremonies of Hajj is for the pilgrims to reject evil in every way possible, physically, mentally, verbally and spiritually. The soul of a Muslim yearns to visit Makkah, where the first house of worship was built and this where, Allah (s.w.t) commanded Prophet Ibrahim (peace be upon him), to settle his family, thereafter, build the Ka'bah with his son Prophet Ismae'il (peace be upon him); where Muslims from all over the world, turn for prayers. This is where the last Messenger and the prophet of Allah (s.w.t) Muhammad, (peace be upon him) was born and where, the pilgrims begin their quest for forgiveness. A quest that takes them on “The Journey of a lifetime”- The Hajj.
Types of Hajj:
The majority of the people from the UK perform Hajj Al-Tamattu. This means entering into Ihram and making intention for “Umrah” on approaching the Miqat. Performing Umrah and then taking off the Ihram. Thereafter, from the 8th of Dhu Al-Hijjah, to wear the Ihram again from one’s residence in Makkah, make intention for Hajj and travel to Mina.
