Our comprehensive Hajj services are designed to provide you with a spiritually enriching and logistically stress-free experience.

Hajj, the preeminent pilgrimage in Islam, is an obligatory act of worship for Muslims in good health and with sufficient financial means. The rituals of Hajj span approximately 6 days, with core rituals that can be completed in as few as 3 days. It is the pinnacle of Muslim devotion, even though less than 10% of the global Muslim population manage to undertake this extraordinary journey.
In the modern era, about 2.5 million Muslims embark on the Hajj pilgrimage every year, a number that closely approaches the recorded maximum capacity. Saudi authorities carefully regulate the number of pilgrims from each country, ensuring a well-organized and safe experience. As a mark of honor, those who have completed the Hajj are recognized as ‘hajjis’ and often add ‘Hajj’ or ‘Hajji’ to their names upon their return from Makkah.

Pillars of Hajj

Three ways to perform Hajj
Tamattu` means performing `Umrah during the Hajj season, and on the Day of Tarwiah a pilgrim gets into the state of Ihram for Hajj. Anyone intending to perform a Tamattu` Hajj should on approaching the Miqat make intention for Umrah. After fulfilling the Hajj rituals, one should offer a sacrificial animal
Qiran means to combine Hajj and ‘Umrah. This means that the pilgrim should declare the intention to perform both Hajj and `Umrah together, “Labbayk-Allahumma labbayka bi-Hajjin wa-‘Umrah!” or “Labbayka Hajjan wa ‘Umratan!” “O, Allah! I answer Your call to perform Hajj and ‘Umrah!” In this kind of Hajj, it is not allowed for the pilgrim to end the state of Ihraam after Sa’ay. The pilgrim will not have to perform after the Ifadah Tawaaf on the 10th of dhil Hijjah the Sa’y because it is already performed for both Hajj and `Umrah. The pilgrim is supposed to bring his sacrificial animal with him as the Prophet (S) did. This must be done because the rituals of Hajj and `Umrah were joined together.
Ifraad means that the pilgrim declares his intention for Hajj only. ” Labbayk-Allahumma labbayka bi-Hajj!” or ” Labbayka Hajjan” “O Allah! I answer Your call to perform Hajj.” The pilgrim maintains his Ihraam up to the Day of Sacrifice. No animal sacrifice offering is required from him.
