Hajj 2016

By Mar 10, 2016

MYTH:   Make Hajj Difficult to Get More Rewards

It’s important to make your Hajj experience as easy as possible so you can focus on making quality worship and not be frustrated throughout the acts of worship. Ayesha said, “Whenever Allah’s Messenger was given the choice of one of two matters, he would choose the easier of the two, as long as it was not sinful to do so.” [al-Bukhari] If you can afford to make Hajj easier, you should. Avoid difficulties. If difficulties naturally come about then there is more reward, but to choose difficulty is against the sunnah.

 

Do you want to fly for 11 hours, then wait for immigration in Jeddah airport for 6 hours, then get on a 3 hour bus drive to Makkah, then take an hour to check in at your hotel, and then finally in a tired state go and make Umrah??

If your answer is no, see why you should look into the Super Deluxe package below:

 

 

Madinah First – Upgraded Tents


Go to Madinah First vs. Jeddah First Why Madinah First?

 

Avoid the 6-12 Hour Wait at Jeddah Airport Upon Arrival

If you are going to Jeddah first, get yourself ready for a long immigration line and wait at Jeddah airport that could last anywhere from 6 to 12 hours. You will also be dressed in Ihram clothes throughout this wait and be expected to make Umrah after a 2-3 hour bus drive to Makkah. Our package takes you to Madinah first. At Madinah airport, you will literally be done with immigration in minutes and will be in your hotel resting and getting rid of jet lag while people will still be waiting in line in ihram in Jeddah. Saving a few hundred dollars with a cheaper package- is it really worth it?

 

No Dressing Required on the Plane

Going to Madinah first means that you don’t have to get dressed in your ihram clothes on the plane nor be in your ihram clothes for hours at the airport. Saving a few hundred dollars with a cheaper package- is it really worth it?

 

Make Your First Umrah With Ease

You will be making Umrah after resting and staying a few nights in Madinah instead of making Umrah after a long flight and wait in Jeddah airport. After a few nights in Madinah, you will have the comfort of eating a full breakfast, taking a shower at your hotel, putting your ihram clothes on, and then going for Umrah. Saving a few hundred dollars with a cheaper package- is it really worth it?

 


Hotels in Front of the Haramain

5 Star Hilton Hotel in Makkah

 

You will be praying 5 times a day in the Haramain or more. It makes sense to have hotels in front of the Haramain. You don’t want to walk through the crowds, bump into people and get bumped, get frustrated, and then arrive for prayer in the masjid. Saving a few hundred dollars with a cheaper package- is it really worth it?

 

Hilton Hotel Benefits in Makkah

Hilton Hotel has many benefits. There is easy access to many shops, restaurants, grocery stores, and vendors all indoors. Most of all, if you happen to be late for prayer you can pray at the entrance because people form the lines of prayer from the masjid all the way to your hotel doorstep. You don’t have to miss the Jama’ah even if you happen to be late! Saving a few hundred dollars with a cheaper package- is it really worth it?

 

Avoid Aziziyah – Shisha Buildings

You absolutely don’t want to have Aziziyah or Shisha in your package. Staying in these locations would mean that you will not have access to the Kabah because roads will be blocked a few days before Hajj. How would you feel when the Kabah is 10 minutes away but you can’t make it there for prayer?? Saving a few hundred dollars with a cheaper package- is it really worth it?

 


Upgraded Mina Sheet-Rocked Tents vs. Tents

You will have sheet-rocked tents with doors instead of the canvas tents. Instead of sleeping on the ground or a thin carpet you will be provided futons. Yes, they all advertise air-conditioning, but realistically how much air-conditioning will happen in open canvas tents versus sheet-rocked tents with doors in the desert?? Saving a few hundred dollars with a cheaper package- is it really worth it?

 

Tents in Front of Jamarat vs. Tents with a 45-60 Minute Walk Each Way

 

Enjoy our tents directly in front of the Jamarat (al-Baik is around the corner). Now after making Tawaf and Saee, do you really want to walk from a tent in Mina that is about a 45-60 minute distance one-way from the Jamarat? You will have to do this for at least two days if not three. On your way to the Jamarat you will encounter crowds and many people camping on the ground. It will be better to be right in front of the Jamarat in our Upgraded Mina Tents. Saving a few hundred dollars with a cheaper package- is it really worth it?

 


Take the Package with Meals Throughout

 

Our package has meals provided in the hotels and tents. You really don’t want a package that doesn’t provide meals. You don’t want to have to go looking for meals in Madinah or Makkah. Lines are long and the food production quality at some shops may not be up to your standards. You do not want to risk getting sick or getting food poisoning during Hajj time. You also want to have meals in Mina, it is very difficult to get food there otherwise. Saving a few hundred dollars with a cheaper package- is it really worth it?
