Al-Amanah Hajj Trip 2019

Hajj

وَأَذِّنْ فِي النَّاسِ بِالْحَجِّ يَأْتُوكَ رِجَالًا وَعَلَىٰ كُلِّ ضَامِرٍ يَأْتِينَ مِنْ كُلِّ فَجٍّ عَمِيقٍ

“And proclaim the pilgrimage to the people. They will come to you on foot and on every lean camel, they shall come from every deep ravine”. (Hajj: 27)

The fifth pillar of Islam is to perform a pilgrimage (Hajj) to Makkah, in Saudi Arabia, at least once in a lifetime. This pillar is obligatory for every Muslim, male or female, subject to that he or she is physically and financially able to do so.

Abu Hurairah (RA) said: “I heard the Prophet (PBUH) say: ‘Whoever performs Hajj for the sake of Allah and does not have sexual relations (with his wife), commit sin, or dispute unjustly (during the Hajj), will come back like the day his mother gave birth to him.’” (Bukhari: 1521, Muslim: 1350).

Hajj is considered as the ultimate form of worship, as it involves the spirit of all the other rituals and demands of the believer. On this blessed occasion, up to 3 million Muslims from all over the globe gather at one blessed place asking the forgiveness from Allah (SWT). ALL pilgrims wear special clothes (Ihram) two unsown white sheets, which strips away all distinctions of wealth, status, class and culture; all standing together and equal for the sake Allah (SWT).

The rites of Hajj, which go back to the time of Prophet Ibrahim (PBUH) who built the Kaaba, are observed over five or six days, beginning on the eighth day of the last month (of the Islamic Calendar) of the year, named Dhu al-Hijjah.

These rites include circumambulating the Kaaba (Tawaf) and walking or lightly jogging back and forth between the hills of Safa and Marwa seven times (Sa'i), as Hajar (Prophet Ibrahim’s wife) did during her seek for water for her son Ismail. Then the pilgrims stand together on the wide plain of Arafah and join in prayers for God's forgiveness. The pilgrims also cast stones at a stone pillar which represents Satan. The Hajj ends with a festival, called Eid Al-Adha, which is celebrated with prayers, the sacrifice of an animal, and the exchange of greetings and gifts in Muslim communities around the globe.

Types of Hajj

The way in which hajj can be performed depends on where the pilgrim lives or whether they intend to perform Umrah along with Hajj or whether one wants to offer an animal sacrifice or not. These variations have been classified into three categories and referred to as the three types or methods of Hajj: Hajj al-Ifrad, Hajj al-Qiran and Hajj al-Tamattu. Thus, Al-Amanah Hajj & Umrah, provides a flexible choice to all pilgrims to select the type or method of hajj 2020 they desire to perform through all our 5 star hajj packages 2020 and economy hajj packages 2020 from the UK.

Hajj al-Tamattu

In this form of Hajj, a pilgrim enters the state of the Ihram for Umrah only first before subsequently entering ihram for hajj upon reaching Makkah the pilgrim performs Tawaf and Sa'i for Umrah, and then exits the status of Ihram after shaving or clipping the hair. Then on the eighth of Dhu al-Hijjah, the pilgrim enters the status of Ihram for Hajj only and performs all the rites and duties of Hajj. pilgrim performs this form of Hajj called Mutamatti.

Hajj al-Ifrad

In this form of Hajj, a pilgrim enters the state of the Ihram with the intention of performing Hajj only upon reaching Makkah the pilgrim performs Tawaf of arrival and Sa'i for Hajj. And remains in the Ihram till the accomplishment of stoning jamarat al-aqaba. There is no harm in Postponing the Sa'I of Hajj after the Tawaf of Hajj. Pilgrims performing this form of Hajj is called Mufrid.

Hajj al-Qiran

In this form of Hajj, a pilgrim enters the state of the Ihram with the intention of performing both Hajj and Umrah together. Or entering the status of Ihram for Umrah first and incorporating the intention to perform hajj. The actions performed in qiran are similar to those in ifrad, except in qiran a pilgrim must offer a sacrifice (hadi or qurabni). Pilgrims performing this form of Hajj is called Qarin.

Buses

The membership of the Syndicate comprises more than 49 transport companies (e.g. Qawafel, Rawahel, Rabitat Makkah and so on). GCS works in coordination with competent government agencies. Buses provided by GCS may or not in the best conditions. Nevertheless, buses used in transporting between Makkah to Madinah and vice versa could be upgraded to a higher standard by signing a contract with the desired transport company and under the supervision of the GCS by paying an additional sum per pilgrim.

Journey to the sacred places

According to Islamic custom, the night belongs to the day that follows it, so, at night of the eighth of Dhu al-Hijjah.

In order to transfer all the pilgrims from their hotels in Makkah to their designated tents in Mina.
