Fifty Things To Do In Hajj

Recommended Posts

Fifty Things to Do in Hajj

 

Muhammad ash-Shareef

 

 

 

Many of those going for Hajj may find themselves sitting in a tent thinking to themselves, ‘now what do I do’. Some pick themselves up and go around doing things pleasing to Allah – others may not capture the moment due to inexperience.

 

Here is a jot list of beneficial things to do during your Hajj trip. If you are not going for Hajj, why not forward it to someone who might benefit from it on his or her journey. At least they can practice number 26.

 

May Allah ta'ala make it a safe journey for all the Hujjaj. Ameen.

Subhan'Allaah I'd forgotten I had posted this. Glad its been of help Alhamdulillah.

 

If you are unsure of a ritual or anything else, always ask, many Haj Groups are accompanied with a Scholar / Aaalim.

 

Here are a couple more Do's and Dont's list:

DON'T expect Hajj to be a pleasure trip. Try to take your frustrations, hardships, and disappointments (and there will definitely be many!) in stride as a part of the sacrifice expected of you. See if you can ease someone else's burden a little by offering your support.
