Transcript of Hajj Project

Hajj Assignment Extra Ihram- An extra ihram is very important because they may get muddy or dirty during Hajj for many reasons. What to Pack Bathroom slippers – Make sure to get the right slippers for those of you who need to use the washroom in Mina/Makkah. Make sure not to get the cheap 5 SR (Saudi Riyal) slippers, as they hurt a lot and they are really thin; it is better off to walk barefoot! Pocket Prayer mat – Since you’ll be out in various locations, keep a clean pocket prayer mat wherever you go in case your schedule is tight, and you need to pray salah as soon as possible. Toiletries – Don’t be too confident about buying everything you need for personal hygiene when you get there. Be careful not to use any scented stuff while you are in ihram. Notebook and pen – It is good to make notes while in Hajj. Try to take record of what you are doing all the time, everywhere. Small shoulder bag – On the day of Arafat, you will be asked to leave all your belongings at Mina camp, this means you will need a small bag to carry what you need and any personal items. Make sure to be completely organized! Make labels for everything so that you know where you put your belongings and so they won’t get lost. There are many amazing restaurants in Makkah and the best part is, they are all halal!

is performed at any time of the year. Mina – The city that you go to, to sleep in

our actual Hajj journey,
we must understand what
Hajj is, and why we perform
it. What is Hajj, and Why do we Perform it? Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam. It is a mandatory act for all Muslims over the age of puberty, and by those who are financially able to go for it. Hajj is where millions of Muslims from all around the world come together in one place to perform an act of worship, and they also come closer to Allah (SWT). Hajj is a place that represents us
Muslims and shows that we are all one
Ummah no matter our skin colour,
background, and language. Hajj is not just an act of worship, but it is
also an act of equality. The Prophet Muhammad said:“Whoever performs Hajj solely for the sake of God and, in the course of it, abstains from sensuality and disobedience, he returns from there as immaculate as a new born child.”
(Bukhari, Muslim) Hajj is performed by Muslims so that they can feel what the Prophet (SAW) felt when he went for his Hajj. Hajj is performed by Muslims to show that we have
Taqwa (aware of God and to fear Him). In the Holy Quran, Allah (SWT) says in Surah 3 Verse
"... whoever enters it attains security; Pilgrimage
thereto is a duty men owe to Allah,- those who can
afford the journey; but if any deny faith, Allah stands
not in need of any of His creatures." Different Types of Hajj There are 3 different types of Hajj. 1- Ifrad - Hajj before Umrah 2- Tamattu - Umrah first then Hajj. 3- Qiran - doing both Hajj and
Umrah at the same time. On this Hajj
we will be
the Ifrad Hajj. Types of Tawaf Tawaf Al-Ifaadah - Which takes place furing Hajj, is also known as the "Tawaf of Visiting" Your perform it after going to Arafat, and on or after the day of Al Adha.

Tawaf al Wadaa - The farewell tawaf which is performed after completing all of the acts of Hajj. Tawaf because of a vow - Performed when you made a vow to circulate the Kabah. Voluntary Tawaf - Performed because you want to. The dress code for men and women is pretty simple, but very important. Women must wear something that is loose and something that covers their entire body. (preferably abaya). Men wear two pieces of cloth wrapped around themselves. One on the top and one on the bottom.
