guest of Allah. All pilgrims must strictly follow the rules of Hajj
otherwise you may have to do sadaqah or extra Qurbanee or fasting etc.
extremely hot specially during summer in Saudi Arabia, so make sure in
your package deal that your travel agent / Hajj Guide will be providing
good air-conditioned transportation to travel in around Makkah and
Madinah and if possible, provide Air Transportation between Makkah and
Travel Agent / Hajj Guide give clear schedule for all occasions
including trip to Kabaa, Mina, Arafaat, and Muzdalifah etc. and will
always be there to help you.
Travel Agent / Hajj Guide don’t leave you behind at any instance
otherwise you may have to pay extra money, which you might not afford,
since during Hajj time transportation is extremely expensive, could be
ten or twenty times more. You must check with previous experienced
persons who already had gone with them. It is also your duty to follow
strict instructions of your Travel Agents / Hajj Guide as well, since
due to overcrowded, it may become extremely hard to follow timings.
Take extra precautions on trip to and from Mina and be cooperative to
Travel Agent / Hajj Guide will carry good quality FM Radio to listen to
Hajj Speech, since Listening to Hajj Speech is also Obligatory, like
listening to Juma Speech and any one misses Juma Speech, misses the
benefits of Juma Salaat, since it becomes half of Dhur Prayer, i.e.
instead of 4 Rakaat they offer only 2 Rakaat. Till Saudi Government
provide good arrangement of Audios (Speakers) to listen to Hajj Speech
nice and clear in all around the Arafaat ground, Travel Agent / Hajj
Guide must make an arrangement of good quality of FM Radio.
to Travel Agents / Hajj – Guides:
Pilgrims are Guest of
Travel Agents / Hajj Guide must be very humble and helpful to Pilgrims,
otherwise may be questioned on the Day of Judgment. They must provide
enough time to perform all acts including Tawaaf, Saee etc., since it
takes too long time to perform each act during rush time of Hajj. If
any of Pilgrims has to spend extra money because of your mismanagement,
you may be question on the Day of Judgment.
to Saudi Government:
Government is taking
extra care and busy in modernizing Hajj Trips for Pilgrims, still I
would like to highlight few more things to them and Allah will give you
At Mina, special
cares need to be taken to clean garbage DAILY otherwise there are
chances to spread epidemic/pandemic deceases like SARS, BIRD FLUE.
Already vast majority of Pilgrims are getting sick every year, which
could be due to Great Mess of Garbage piles up at Mina.
make sure all highways are completely shut down for all traffics from
sunset to sunrise, except those carrying Pilgrims and Saudi Officials
performing duties at Hajj, on the night Pilgrims stay there during
Hajj, and that is only once a year. Otherwise you don’t know what
impact it will leave behind on Pilgrims health due to traffic
pollutions passing from both sides of the Muzdalifah ground. Remember
there are for sure many Pilgrims whose health are little week and may
catch Pollutions base diseases and there life may become miserable for
few months at least if not for very long period.
It is advised to
Saudi Government to re-organize their arrangements so that all Pilgrims
get equal chances to offer at least 5 times Congregational Salaat
inside Kabaa (Haram). They can achieve this if nearest accommodations
are reserved for one day for each of Pilgrims and then send them far
away from Kabaa (Haram) to make room for others who don’t have
performed 5 times Congregational Salaat inside Kabaa (Haram). All
Pilgrims must have equal chances since this is once in a life time
opportunities for many of them. Perhaps they will need to establish
good train services as well for it.
d. One of the reasons for the moon’s
to find the date for Hajj in Makkah, and adopt it Globally. We must
have one Unified Global Islaamic Calendar. We must work for one Unified
Global Muslim Unity for the development of Peace around the Globe,
(Ref. Al_Quraan_002:0189). Those who are Sharing
must celebrate their Eid and Ramadaan same together, (Ref:
Al_Quraan_097.005). At the time of Magrib (Sunset) at Makkah, if there
is moon sighting on the east at the time of their Maghrib (Sunset) time
who have not yet started their Fajir time are sharing the same night.
Also before time of Fajir at Makkah, if there is moon sighting on the
west, who have started their Maghrib (Sunset) time are sharing the same
