After arrival at Madinah airport the Pilgrims will be taken to the waiting hall in the airport. Please expect a waiting period of between two and four hours depending on the number of Pilgrims coming at that time. When your turn comes, customs agents will call you to the booth, they will check your visa and get some information from you and then they will ask you to pick up your luggage (your luggage will be in the same hall that the custom agents are in). You will pick up your luggage and proceed to the checkpoint where they will conduct a routine search of all the bags.
GOING TO MAKKAH FOR THE HAJJ:
Enter into Ihram at Al- Miqat (station of Ihram) falls on the way. You may enter into Ihram from the hotel. It is allowed to do so before Miqat but not after that point. As such we request that you perform Ghusul (Ihram shower) at the hotel before leaving to Makkah.
ARRIVAL IN MAKKAH:
While moving to Makkah, which is about 420 kilometres away, you should be in the prescribed state of Ihram and should continue proclaiming Talbiyah as often as you can. When you enter Makkah, you should be reciting Talbiyah with great enthusiasm and fondness.
Accommodation during your stay in Makkah will be in Azaziah. The reason for the choice of using the hotel building in Azaziah over those close to the Haram is that we will spend most of our time away from the Haram and at the tents. Additionally, all the buildings surrounding the Ka’abah have been demolished to allow more space for the crowds entering the mosque. The Jamarat is located only 10-15 minutes’ walk from this location. The Haram is 4km from Azaziah and the tents are 6-7km. The only rituals performed at the Haram are the Arrival Tawaf (Tawaf Qudum) and Ifada Tawaf. Males and females will be accommodated separately in the same building in Azaziah. The number of people per room will be determined by the size of each room. We will operate on a first come first served basis (Early booking will be in a less occupancies room).
You will reside at Makkah Al-Mukaramah Al-Azizyah Al-Shamalia *Sidqi Street (The way to Jamarat) *Al- Ma’erefa Street *Opposite to Talha Ebn Obied Allah’s School *Beside Hamzah Mosque. The hotel is situated 10-15 minutes’ walk from Jamarat. Feel free to use the hotel during your stay in Mina at anytime. Rest and freshen-up after returning from Jamarats. After a short rest, you make your way to Al-Haram (Ka’abah) to perform Tawaf Al-Qudom (Arrival Tawaf) and Sa’ae. After performing Al-Tawaf and Al-Sa’ae, head back to the hotel.
Put on Ihram garments again from the accommodation (There is no need in going to Miqat again).
Make intention for Hajj.
Remain in Mina during the Tarwiah Day (8th Zul Hijjah) and perform the 5 prayers starting from the Zuhr prayer and ending with the Fajr prayer on the day of Arafat.
All the prayers are shortened (except Maghrib and Fajr) and offered at their proper times.
THE DAY OF ARAFAH [THE MOST IMPORTANT DAY OF THE HAJJ RITUALS]
After Fajar prayer in Mina, proceed to Arafat.
The Imam leads Zuhr and Asr prayers, combined and shortened, at Zuhr time with one Azan and two Iqamah.
Time will be spent in prayer and supplications until sunset
GOING TO MUZDALIFA:
At Maghrib time, without offering Maghrib prayer, leave for Muzdalifa (Al-Mashar Al-Haram).
Offer Maghrib and Isha. (Isha is two Raka’a) prayers together at Isha’s time with one Azan and two Iqamah.
After prayers, pick up pebbles for throwing at Satan at the Jamarat in Mina later on. (In our case, pick up 70 pebbles).
Stay overnight in Muzdalepha. It is permitted for weak (woman, the old, the ill etc.) to leave Muzdalepha after midnight (Moonset).
Return to Mina to spend the next three days. You will throw the Jamarat and perform Qurbani (Zabiha – Slaughtering). Some of the Holy places can be very crowded, particularly at the stoning of the Satans at Mina. The crowds can be particularly daunting for the elderly or frail. Pilgrims can become easily separated from their family or friends. Please make a note of the location of your camp and tent and agree a meeting point in case you do become separated. The performance of Hajj is physically demanding even if you are fit. After stoning Jamarat, you will leave for Makkah to do Tawaf Al-Ifadah and Sa’ae to complete Hajj rituals.
WHAT TO EXPECT IN MADINATU - AL - HUJJAJ (HAJJ TERMINAL)
After arrival at the Hajj Terminal the Pilgrims will be taken to the waiting hall in the airport. Please expect a waiting period of between ten to twelve hours depending on the number of Pilgrims coming at that time. When your turn comes, customs agents will call you to the booth, they will check your visa and get some information from you and then they will ask you to pick up your luggage (Your luggage will be in the same room that the custom agents are in). You will pick up your luggage and proceed to the checkpoint where they will conduct a routine search of all the bags.
