IQRA’ would like to wish safe travels to all the Hajjis getting ready to embark on life’s most sacred and blessed journey. Inshallah may your Hajj be easy for you and may it be accepted with the highest rewards (Ameen).
To assist the Hajjis that are traveling from abroad IQRA’ has put together a list of items to pack for Hajj based on recommendations from previous hajjis.
Teach your kids about the immense blessings and rewards received from completing Hajj. Use simple activities to build a desire within your children to visit the blessed house of Allah (swt) from a young age. Explain that the first 10 days of Dhul-Hijjah are special like the last 10 days of Ramadan. In fact, Allah (swt) says that no days are more beloved to Him than the first 10 days Hajj.
