I've just recently came back from a two week trip to do Umrah. It was really fascinating seeing the 2 Holy Mosques and the Kabah for the 1st time. It was really cool to hear the recitors in person. I liked it when you could hear the adhan from the hotel.

That's beautiful masha'Allah!

Yeah.. I went first time when I was 22 days old. :sister:

Well :p when I was in Medina, in Masjid an nabawi, the Arab women picked me up and called me a princess. :p :sister: :sister: :sister:

..and the second time was 4years ago. :sister:

I don't think any major event took place obviously apart from seeing the haramain sharifayn :wub: . That was amazing. It's too good to be decribed in words. You have to experience it yourself insha'Allah. :thumbs_up



Insha'Allah, I intend to go again soon! :sister:

lol...I didn't see this until now.. :-\

Yep, alhamdulillah I have gone for Hajj.. This past yr and in 2001.. :) Yeh, the Masjid Al Haram does have a powerful and kinda intimdating feel to it. :wub: And the closer you get to the Kaabah you just feel like melting. Its truly amazing mashaAllah. :'( And so is walking around the area where the dome is in Masjid Al Nabawi.. When you actually walk in there you just wanna cry that you never got to be here when Rasulullah (Salallahu Alayhi Wasallam) was there. :'(

*gets off the spotlight* Sheesh...I talk too much.

Hey, bro zAk, you went, innit? Come on share u'r stories. I shared mine a while back...u never said much abt u'rs. :D

And thats wonderful sis 3washey. :love: May Allah SWT accept it from you and grant every Muslim the means to go.

Allhumdoillah summa allhumdoillah - I have been very fortunate to have been to Umrah/Hajj many times.

However, I can honestly say that nothing beats the first time you see Kaaba - it was amazing it was night time and the kaaba was in front of me in all its glory. It brought tears to my eyes - truly amazing. So much peace and blessings a unique experience!

The other great experience was the first time I did salaam at the Raudha - again an experience words cannot describe!

(Sorry to spoil the mood) but you would not believe some of the things that go on in the haram - astagfirullah - some of the things are bordering on KUFR and SHIRK! Dont these people fear Allah?

Is it true that depending on which country you are from, you will enter the masjid from a certain gate?

The other great experience was the first time I did salaam at the Raudha - again an experience words cannot describe!
Subhanallah, When I hear such things it only makes my desire grow to visit it one day InshaAllah.

Nah bro - you can enter through any gate you like. The most virtous being Babul Salaam (and here is a tip for you) Babus Salaam is not the current door - it has been moved due to the expansion. The ORIGINAL Babus Salaam is 21 footsteps behind Maqame Ibrahim (as in the Prophet (Sallallah-ho-walahiwassalams) time)

i saw this woman touching all the gold links on kabah

and my nana caught this woman trying to cut the kabah cloth for future keep
ASTAGFIRULLAH - I have seen similair things but I have seen worse things (I dont really like to mention bad things but I will give just 2 examples) - I saw a man in ihram and he came to me near the Hill of Safa he started telling me how his mum was blind and that he had just lost all his money whilst doing tawaf! Anyway, I knew he was dodgy but gave him like 1 riyal and he started huffing and puffing and wanted a few thousand riyals!!!! Anyway, 2 days later I saw him again in the same ihram asking someone else - this time I grabbed him and reported him to the Guards!

The other classic was same story as above - but the guy said me and MY WIFE were at the Raudah and we were doing salaam and we got our money stolen!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I pointed out that men and women arent allowed to do salaam together - after which he pretended to be deaf and walked away - ASTAGFIRULLAH

I have seen many other things - but all I can say is that MAY ALLAH GUIDE THE UMMAH!

What happens to the cloth after they take it out at hajj time and put a new one. Where does the old one go? MY Grandma has a piece of the cloth, and she told they cut it up and give it it out to people.

Oh yeah... amani mentioned about the kabah cloth and someone touching it?

Reminided me of something :-[ I went 5 years ago, practically when I was 10 years old. So a few days after I had performed umrah, I was doing tawaaf with my mum and just out of innocence as a child and you know first time being there and seeing the kabah, I said to my mum that I want to touch the kabah, feel the material of the cloth, what it was like. So my mum said ok so I did touch it and as soon as I did, there was this arab man and I clearly remember he was wearing white thobe, cream bisht red and white scarf, and he said to me to go and it was shirk... and I was like :omg: :omg: :( I only wanted to feel what it was like so I had to go :( ..
There were loads of people touching and putting their arms on it, and their heads in their arms...basically leaning on the kabah. If that makes sense? and the Arab man was telling them too..

I think because it doesn't say anywhere in the hadith about touchin the cloth so they don't let people touch it much.. Cuz then slowly people will get other ideas and thats how deviations creep in.. Allahu a'lam. :sister:

well abt touching it being shirk

i was in masjidul Nabawi...

n subhan'Allah cuz it was around Hajj time....like so many women wer going to c the Rasool(PBU)'s grave...
n i membr....ther was just regular cloth sumwher....on a pillar...n this lady....it was as if she was trying to cleanse herself or sumthing..like she was makin sure the cloth touchd her face, her arms....n thats wat is wrong....so sometimes they misinterpret(meanin like that arab dude) that is wat ur doing even tho u rnt really
like near the Kaabah... the gutter...wel wen it rains water coms down...n like so many ppl wud run n try to go underneath it to b touched by the water n they thought they wer "cleansed" ....so stuff that ppl made up that the Prophet(PBBU) nevr even told us to do....

anyways....
i did tawaf by myself, even tho im 13....n Alhumduililah nothong happned!!!! subhan'Allah didn know that happened at the masjid -shocked-

i membr wen i 1st saw it.... i 4got everything....n if w/e dua u read when u 1st see it is accepted...but i was so dazed i didn even make a dua! :zip:

Subhan Allah! I realised I haven't even posted in this topic yet.

Alhamdulillah I have been to Hajj, and I intend to go again insha Allah. I need to!

One must realise that Allah only calls those whom He wishes to His home. Some have millions of pounds, dollars, whatever, yet they cannot even make it to Makkah and Madinah so those who have been, and are hoping to go soon (all things are planned out and are waiting to go) should be really, really thankful. It's a great blessing of Allah that He allows us to see His home when we are young at heart, as nothing in life is for certain. Heck, we don't even know whether that was our last prayer.

Yea, insha-Allaah if and when I go, I know I will. I have 2 siblings that live in Jeddah, I've only seen them once in the last 13 years so beside the spiritual experience, it will also be a family affair. Insha-Allaah.

Everyone thats been to Hajj always tell me wonderful stories of their experience and the wonderful time they had, I want to be able to tell my kids those stories Insha-Allaah.

*raises eyebrow at zAk* Does it matter if you don't remember 'em? I thought you said you kept a diary while you were there? So dig out the diary, and start typing. ;)

Actually, stop pestering zAk. He went for Hajj before he was a member here, so urm, he can back out of this. :zip: (If you have to share that story of yours, then I know, I'll get pestered about my first Hajj. ;D)

And if nobody wants to share their stories with me, then fine. Just remember, when and if I go next, I won't share mine with anybody (except zAk). :mad:

assalamu alaikum,

I remember seeing all the people making sujood (prostration) to Allah, and it was completely silent...that alone made me cry...Allahu Akbar..to know that we are all here (in hajj) worshipping the same Creator..submitting to Him alone.

Then, i saw all my brothers and sisters who were from different backgrounds, and of different colours, dressed so beautifully, with the traces of nur(light) on there faces...smiling and greeting one another with salams.

Women, covered in black from head to toe, as if they were precious pearls being safeguarded by there husbands who seemed to be there body guards.
Little old men crying, and making dua for Allah the Most High to forgive them for there life full of sins....sharing food with loved ones, or strangers on the premises of the Prophets masjid....

I swear im sad everytime the hajj comes and goes, as i wish i could go again, and be one of these blessed pilgrims....

From what i know, its an amazing, undescribable feeling. I mean if you just watch it on like tv or something you will be amazed to see how all different types of people, with different backgrounds, different ethnicities are combined into one place and named as one. subhanallah!

everyone is equal in the eyes of Allah, and you cannot seperate differences from one person to the other.

Inshallah someone else can describe it better than I since i havent experienced it yet :)

All i can say is imagine being in the what to muslims in a sense is the centre of the world in the largest gathering on earth. Imagine people from all colours, nations, people with differenet languages, people youve never even seen, people from places youve never heard or even thought existed. Imagine seeing young, old, rich and poor all in dressed the same. In the pilgrime to Mecce there is no diffrentiaition between rich and poor, arab or non arab. People you never seen before will treat you like family. You never wana leave, it beomes ones home. To conclude, its truely amazing, its truly the house of God.

Preparation for trip to Hajj

The Hajj is the landmark event in a Muslim's life which requires great spiritual, physical, mental and financial planning and preparation.

Firstly, a pilgrim must satisfy a number of conditions to qualify for the Hajj. They must be a sane, adult person who has their parents' permission. They must be be debt-free and ensure their family will be taken care of in their absence.

Financially, Hajj expenses often spiral into the thousands and must be acquired through legitimate means. All debts, loans and outstanding financial obligations must be met and any family remaining back home must be adequately provided for. One of the main prerequisites of the Hajj also involves drawing up a will (Wasseeyat) before departure. This ensures that in the unfortunate event of death, clear instructions to distribute assets and property and provide for the bereaved have been made by the deceased.

Physically, the Hajj circuit demands a high level of physical activity and stamina. Pilgrims walk great distances under the blazing Saudi sun in a throbbing mass of humanity, hundreds and thousands of pilgrims trying to perform the same rites in confined spaces and very hot conditions. A gradual build-up programme a few months prior to the Hajj is recommended - walking and jogging about 20 minutes to 30 minutes three times a week.


Walking through the entrance to Mecca
Spiritually, pilgrims should increase their understanding of Islam before setting out. They should spend time learning about Islam, the Hajj and be informed about the divine requirements and symbolism of each rite. They should memorise Hajj prayers and be able to understand their meaning. A pilgrim should also understand and be able to speak basic Arabic.

A professional mutawwif might be on hand to guide the pilgrim through the intricacies of the Hajj but being able to move swiftly around the circuit equipped with one's own knowledge, may far outweigh the practicalities of keeping up with a group guide or leader in the huge crowds.

Mentally, the pilgrim must be fit and exercise self-restraint and control in exchanges with others. All differences and disagreements with others should also be resolved before departure. The pilgrim should begin behaving in a courteous and respectful manner at all times in preparation for their divine appointment with other Muslim brothers and sisters.

Travel arrangements need to be made well in advance especially flights and accommodation. Hajj visas are issued by the Saudi Arabian Embassy in London. The pilgrim also must obtain certain vaccinations to acquire a Hajj visa. In recent years, meningitis outbreaks at the Hajj resulted in 45 identified UK cases and eight deaths in 2000 with a meningitis strain not found in the UK. Inoculations are required for other illnesses such as typhoid fever, polio, pneumonia, diptheria, tetanus and malaria. Disease and illness spread rapidly at the Hajj where hundreds of thousands of people move at all times in extremely close proximity. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia requires proof of inoculations and a round-trip ticket to home to ensure pilgrims don't linger.

Female pilgrims must be accompanied by their husbands or a mahram (a male relative from their immediate family with whom sharia law forbids marriage). A woman over 45 years can travel with a group of pilgrims without a mahram if sponsored by a family within her group. For all pilgrims, regardless of gender, it is a duty for the Muslim pilgrim to be fully prepared to visit the House of God on the Hajj.

Checklist to Hajj


Plan early for the Hajj
Going on the Hajj is a serious undertaking. As it is a once in a lifetime experience for most people, early and adequate preparation cannot be underestimated. There is a considerable investment of time, money and physical effort required for the pilgrimage to be successful.

Prospective pilgrims need to make sure they are prepared and ready for what will be one of the most memorable experiences of their lives.

Follow our checklist below and see if you're ready for the Hajj.

Do you qualify?
Every Muslim who fulfills the following conditions must perform Hajj at least once in their lifetime:
You must be of sound mind and in full control of your mental faculties
You must be mature enough to understand the full significance of what you are setting out to do
You must be financially sound enough to bear all your expenses for the Hajj and provide adequately for your dependents in your absence

Six Months before
Begin to research the Hajj, make sure you meet the requirements and can afford to take time off work and will be debt-free. Talk to your Imam about the Hajj rites and get the permission of your parents. If you know someone who has done the Hajj get their advice on your potential arrangements.

Three Months before
Start organising the journey to Saudi and getting into good physical shape. Resolve all outstanding finances.
Pay off all bills, debts and loans
Make arrangements for any family remaining behind
Organise funds for journey
Book Flights
Start gentle exercise regime
Check your passport is valid for six months
Apply for a Saudi Visa
Organise a Mutawwif
Draw up Islamic Will

Two months before
Start reading up on the Hajj, learning about Hajj rites and memorising Hajj prayers. Need proof of vaccinations for Saudi Visa and obtaining documents:
Read up on Hajj and Islam
Vaccinations for Saudi Hajj visa
Need proof of Meningitis vaccination
Obtain proof of being Muslim especially if do not have Muslim name
If female, obtain proof of relationship with Mahram
Increase your exercise regime

One month before
Increase your fitness and memorising of the prayers. Organise requirements for the trip. Shop for:
Light clothes for the Saudi heat
Ihram for men
Extra slippers as they are easily lost on Hajj
Handy backpack to carry items around
Money Belt for travellers cheques and currency
Travel alarm clock to wake up at all hours
Medicines/antibiotics as preventative measures
First-aid kit for emergencies
Sleeping bag, night torch, ear plugs/eye patch
Unscented soap
Zip bag for Muzdalifah pebbles
Umbrella for Saudi sun and stoning rite
Nail clippers/ shaving toiletries for Leaving Ihram
Water flask for Zam Zam water

One week before
Test yourself by reciting the prayers from memory. Finalise packing and get ready to go.

Keep Pilgrim arrival card with passport and Saudi Hajj visa
Pack everything including portable Quran, English-Arabic dictionary, travellers cheques, some Saudi Riyals, high energy snacks, thermo flask for hot and cold drinks.

Good luck!

:D I was just reading and found this and I wanted share with u ...I think that are good news insha allah
( I think that yep ..are ...:cry: )

The signs of an accepted Hajj or 'Umrah

(*Please appropriately reference this fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
:eek: )




Question: Are there any signs which appear upon those whose performance of the Hajj or the 'Umrah is accepted?

Response: It is possible for there to be signs for the one whose Hajj, fasting, charity or prayer has been accepted by Allaah and they are: the opening of the heart (to good), happiness of the heart and a lighted face. Certainly, for worshipping (Allaah) there are signs that appear on the body, signs that are visible and signs that are hidden. Some of the Pious Predecessors have mentioned that from the signs that a good (act) has been accepted (by Allaah) is that he will be granted the towfeeq to do (yet) another good (act). Certainly the towfeeq of Allaah for him to do more good (acts) after it, is evidence that Allaah ('Azza wa Jall) has accepted his previous good (acts). He has made it easy for him to do another good act and is happy with him for it.

Masha Allah, really? :happy: Im so happy to hear that masha Allah. Yaa Allah, give me hajjan mabrura imsad :cry: Ameen.
Alhamdulillah I just back from hajj, Im Indonesian and actually in this year, so many test for Indonesian pilgrims masha Allah :cry:. I just remember in Quran Allah azza wa jalla said everything bad that happen to us, thats because of our own hands, and the bad deeds that we have done imsad . But to me personally, my hajj so so easy. I have imagined just before I went to Hajj that it will be tough. I thought throwing the jumrah is though, and thawaf is tough, and stay in muzdalifah is tough, but when I did it, masha Allah walhamdulillah everything is soooooooo easy, Allahu Akbar. Although its cold season there still I just felt the happiness, masha Allah.

When I said easy, that doesnt mean "not crowded":) , still crowded and I still couldnt kiss hajaraswad, but its just easy for me. I dont know, maybe because I have tall and rather big built than the other Indonesian :D, and I saw the other just about my ears :happy: walhamdulillah alla kulli hal. But I was able to touch rukun yamani in ever cyrcle alhamdulillah. But tried hard not to hurt the other. Masha Allah, eeeveryone came there with different intention, I saw them kiss the yamani, and they wap their clothes to the wall, and they wipe their face and ...arrggghhh aloooooot of bid'ah and churofat :offended: Yaa Allah, rarely muslims know sunnah imsad. Have you done hajj ukht?

1. Mina have one character which other places doesnt have, that it can wider by its self according the quantity of the pilgrims. So Mina will always be able to collect pilgrims as much as it can.
2. Its said that Mina is FREE from flies in hajj time. Its in hadith, but I havent check about it yet. What I know was I cecked it while I was in Mina, and SUBHANALLAH, even in garbage places I couldnt find even one single flies :muddlehea .

Really? Weird...I heard that they're going to remove the tents, and start putting buildings in their place to accomodate for more people...because now at the rate its going, there are people who are ending up staying outside the Mina boundaries. Or maybe I totally misunderstood something. That is more than likely!

I went to perform hajj in 2006> it was the hardest decision 2 leave my children behind as they were both very young and had recently lost their dad. I felt the need to go as i wanted 2 be closer and feel closer 2 allah.
wot a fantastic experience.
People who hav the opportunity 2 go shud be so grateful.
Wen I saw the kaba 4 the first time i couldnt believe how beautiful it was.
Wen i went 2 jamarat and saw the mad rush I actually thought ok, i mite not cum out of this alive but thanks 2 allah i managed 2 get through it.
I cant wait 2 go again but i dnt think it will be until my son is old enough 2 take me.
If any1 is thinkin of goin I wud say 2 them please make the most of ur visit. Spend a s much time in ibadah coz u never no if u will beable 2 go again

ASSALAMUALAIKUM,TO all my bros/sis,first of all i thank Allah who excepted me and the rest who performed HAJJ ameen.It was around july 2006,i said to my wife just make your niyyat v goin Hajj this year,more worried about the children,specially my 4yr old son Muhammad.My sis/bro in law also made the intension.As the time came nearer Allah made things so easy for us to leave for hajj on 13/12/06.
I just cannot believe it upon how Allah made our pilgrimage so easy that words cannot explain.Though it was difficult to keep-up with SABR SPECIALLY with my wife,but alhamdolilla i controlled myself so that i bring that same sabr back home.The word sabr was my intension to bring back home.I still feel,i did not do what i was suppose to do,may Allah 4give,and except all the Haji's,ameen.I ask you all to make dua for me to go for Umra for whole month of Ramazan.

Alhamdulillah I had the opportunity to make Umrah for the first time, back in the year 2003.Subhan’ALLAH it was such an amazing experience, not to mention it was also the month of Ramadhan. :) It was so beautiful to perform the different rituals of Umrah like making the tawaf and sa’i. Subhan’ALLAH being able to pray the taraweeh salaat and listen to the Qur’an being recited by the likes of Sheikh Shuraim and Sheikh Talib automatically uplifted Iman. The atmosphere at Fajr time was so serene and tranquil. :)
The hotel was quite close to the Masjid and so I remember, I used to wake up to the call to the Adhan, Subhan’ALLAH.
At Zuhr time was it hooooot, especially when we were praying outside. The heat of the sun was blistering! :heated:
And how could I ever forget, Madinah. Subhan’ALLAH the Prophet’s (SAW) Masjid looked so beautiful, like a white palace when we were arriving in city. And masha’ALLAH the people of Madinah were so hospitable. I remember breaking fast and making Iftar in Madinah. I was surprised cos in Makkah all u were allowed to break your fast with, at the Masjid, was with dates, water, laban and kahwa, but in Madinah, mahsa’ALLAH they were like giving biryani and all sorts. :p I could go on and on but I thik I’ll leave it for now.

Insha'ALLAH May ALlah take us over and over again...ameen

for makkah theres the hilton and darul Tawheed, but in reality hotels like Grand Makkah and along that line are closer to the actual doors. the new one is abraj al bait is that the one you mean?

in madinah it depends which side you want to stay at, the movenpick and ones along that line are close to the womens entrance, the ones along the side of the Dome opposite Jannatul Baqi are new and building but there arent much food outlets there. further up the movenpick area theres the food but not the womens entrace. so it depends what you want closest :p

1 - The Umrah experience is unexplainable! Best feeling on earth.

2 - Bro Fi: Paris Hilton is from the Hilton family. Hilton's a hotel company.

And if you search "saudi hilton hotel" in Google..you'll see that they've done Hotels in Saudi (Makkah and Madinah). And ALLAAHU A'LAM.

Assalamoalaikum,

During one of my Umrahs, we were going around Makkah for Zeeyrah, to visit the holy places in Makkah.

One of this time, the taxi driver took us to Ghar-e-Hira. We saw a lot of ppl climbing up. The taxi driver told us to try if we want to. As I was doing Umrah with a lot of my family memebers, some of them said they wanted to go up and others refused saying that we shouldn't.

The ones who wanted to go up n visit ghar-e-hira said, we r doing it only for the sake of seeing the cave with our own eyes. Not because we think it is a very sacred place.

So me being young and energetic decided to go. Infact, we were all kids with just one adult. It was a very very hard climb, which got tougher n tougher as we went higher. For me n my cousin, who were anemic, it got difficult to breathe properly. But we decided we would see the cave. For us, it was more like an adventure. We had never climbed a mountain before. And our parents gave us this permission the first time. We girls were the slowest to climb. When we reached the top there was a small canteen there for drinks. When we finished drinking, we thought we had to go down back now. But then our adult cousin told us that we had to go the other side of the mountain to go see ghar-e-hira.

Well, we were really tired but had to accomplish the mission. We got down from the other side of the mountain. Around 10 steps down and we had to pass through two huge rocks to get to the inner side of the mountain. It was a narrow passage. Ppl here said that from this passage u can realise that our Prophet PBUH was quiet slim. I don't know if it the truth.

Anyways, on the other side was ghar-e-hira. It was a small path and the cave was really small. There were ppl praying nawafel in it. So I went in too on my turn to pray. But with three ppl squeezed in a small one person cave, I couldn't do justice to my prayers.

What was an experience though, was the sight of Ka'aba. It was visible b/w the two huge rocks of the ghar-ehira. It was perfectly alligned to face the ka'aba. It was as if it was made for the purpose of praying towards Ka'aba.
I loved this sight and can never forget it. To view ka'aba from ghar-e-hira was an experience.

And to get down from that mountain,,,,was another!!It took us 1 hour to go up and half an hour to get down. But beleive it, I never thought I could make it down safely..I always felt I wanted to jump. It was really high n very steep. Somehow I felt the climb was better than the down walk.

I've gone to umrah three times. Once when I was in the 3rd grade, when I wasn't really aware of anything. And again in the Eid al Fitr holiday of 2005. That same year I went to Hajj and performed hajj for the first time. I also went to umrah again this year.

The feeling of being in the haram is so serene. It's simply calming, I just love sitting on the steps around maghrib time and making tasbeeh, admiring how many people are there, from all different walks of life. And the birds are flying all around. It's beautiful.

Salam.
