Off to Haj

It has been a few years since I have been thinking about Haj and recently things just came together perfectly and with the help of family. I have read a few books and sat down with some people have been through Haj to give me a briefing of what I should and shouldn’t do. I’m happy that I am not clueless but do I feel ready for it, no, but I am looking forward to this spiritual experience.

There a lot of things I have memorized over the past couple of weeks, but I had a million questions and I even wrote down a lot of things. I’m going with my cousins who have been to Haj a few times so I won’t be too lost and the Hamlah (Pilgrimage Group) has a good reputation. Its physically and mentally exhausting but very satisfying, a responsibility for each Muslim to complete. I have even brought my camera with me to take some photos, but I wasn’t sure in the beginning so I asked and I was encouraged to take it.

  12. as much as this might sound bizzare… but trust me… this is one trip you will never forget… actually it is an adventure… enjoy every moment of it.. the disciplne behind every thing… the logics that in some cases will be the last thing that makes sense… the peace of mind… and soul…

    الله يحميكم ويسخرلكم الأرض ومن عليها

  13. 7aj Mabroooor Dear :) Wish you the best.

  14. All Roads Lead to Haj

    Make sure to carry ” The Pilgrim’s Progress” with you to the Haj. Do they still not allow Non Moslems to partake in the Holy Haj? Or have the Saudis changed with the times?
    Have a good one.
    Peace
