Hajj is a profound experience that completely penetrates the heart and soul. It is not only about going on a journey and performing different rituals and coming back with a shaven head. It goes way deeper and has the potential of completely transforming a person. An accepted Hajj (Hajj Mabroor) has the reward of paradise. Here are a few tips about what to do after returning from Hajj:
- Start your new life with a clean slate. The real Hajj begins after coming home to materialism and distractions. Life after Hajj is the real test.
- After returning from Hajj, do not emphasize on the hardships and difficulties that you may have faced during the journey. This is one of the most common mistakes after Hajj that people commit. Instead, focus on the rewards that you will receive from the Almighty. One must understand that the difficulties one faces during this spiritual journey is nothing compared to the high status in Jannah.
- Your action, speech and disposition must be an example to other people, and this is the best gift that one can bring back from Hajj.
- For many, Hajj is a turning point in life and the beginning of the journey back to their faith. For others, it is an ongoing journey of trying to implement lessons of patience, sacrifice and complete submission to Allah, in their lives.
