Hajj (Pilgrimage to Mecca) is amongst the five pillars of Islam that every Muslim should perform, if he/she can financially and physically afford to do so. The other four being Shahda (Faith in Allah), Salat (Prayer), Zakat (Charity), Sawm (Fasting in the month of Ramdan). Umrah is a pilgrimage to Mecca that can be performed at any time of the year.
We have published this website because we wanted to make it easy for all Muslims going for Umrah and Hajj to have a basic, easy, simple and concise Guide to reference and to follow. We faced the same dilemma and nervousness that many Muslims face when going for Hajj or Umrah as to "How to Perform Hajj and Umrah". We consulted many books, reviewed numerous websites and the most important, performed Hajj and Umrah using this Guide. During the Hajj and Umrah, we verified the facts and cross-checked also for its accuracy. We have made the necessary changes and also included some things that the people using this book had asked. Alhamdulillah, everything is good now. May Allah forgive us for any unintended error. Kindly use this Guide with confidence and print it like a book and carry it with you everywhere. The Guide explains everything that you need to know in the most simple and easy way with graphics.
We welcome your feedback and suggestions. Kindly send your comments to us by email or via the website's 'Contact us' page. We also want volunteers to translate this book in other languages so that it can reach more and more Muslims around the world. Please contact us.
