And We made this House a resort for mankind and a place of security, commanding people: “Take the station of Abraham as a permanent place for Prayer,” and enjoined Abraham and Ismail: “Purify My House for those who walk around it, and those who abide in devotion, and those who bow and prostrate.”
Surah Al-Baqarah [2:125]
5* HAJJ PACKAGE – 21 DAYS
15th August to 05th September 2018
- 4 sharing – £4,700 per person
- 3 sharing – £4,950 per person
- 2 sharing – £5,200 per person
21 Days, 5-Star Hotel (‘Shifting’ involved). In this package the hujjaj arrive at Makkah Aziziyah first for 3 days prior to the hajj and for two days after completing the hajj (4, 5 or 6 People Sharing room). Although there is a stigma in some Muslim communities regarding ‘shifting’, it is ideal for the 5 days of hajj as the apartments are located a mere 1 kilometre from the Jamarat and located adjacent to Fakieh Masjid, close to all amenities making it an ideal location for the hajj. In temperatures exceeding 40 degrees centigrade, the apartments are ideal for rest and recovery after each day of the Jamarat (ritual stoning of the devil) and then ‘shifted’ to the prestigious Abraj Al-Bait complex in a 5-star hotel for approximately 6 days and whereby it tends to be less busier around the Masjid Al-Haram post-Hajj.
In Madinah, the hotel provided is the 5-star Movenpick Anwar Al-Madinah with an on-site shopping arcade and large Bin-Dawood Superstore. For the days of the hajj, you will have full board in Mina in an air conditioned tent and will be provided with a pillow, and blanket. In Arafat you will have an air-cooled luxury tent with half-board. For the overnight stay at Muzdallifah you will be provided a pre-packed meal (distributed whilst at Arafat).
All our packages have their individual benefits. The package you choose will be dependent on your individual circumstances and desires. However, you can rest assured whichever package you choose our Muallims will do their utmost to ensure you have a stress-free and enjoyable hajj. Please note that The Hajj is a journey like no other and should not be considered a holiday: it is a spiritual journey. Although we do our best to ensure everything goes smoothly, some things are beyond our control and inevitably leads to problems. In such a scenario, please remember that you are on a pilgrimage which in itself is a test and tribulation from Allah. We will nevertheless assist the hujjaj as much as we can and note that the journey has passed trouble-free for the vast majority of the years we have been in operation.
