• Hajj is one of the pillars in Islam and was commanded in 9A.H. It is the perfection of faith and true surrender to the Almighty. It is a stage in which man can develop himself spiritually. It is a time when the pilgrim forgets his own hearth and home, his comforts and amenities of life, his dear wives and children, his hard-earned wealth, his friends, relatives and everything he possesses, therefore leading to the conclusion that Hajj is the best training ground for absolute and complete surrender to the divine command.

  • Hajj teaches us complete submission to divine will, because one without sufficiently understanding the inner meaning of going round the ka‘bah, kissing the black stone, running between safa and marwa and the throwing of stones at jamrat does these things in blind submission to divine order.

  •  Haj is a comprehensive act of worship, involving both financial outlay and physical exertion. Both remembrance of God and sacrifice for His sake are part and parcel of Haj. Haj is an act of worship in which the spirit of all acts of worship has, in some way or another, been brought into play.

  • The sacred duties of Haj revolve around the House of God, the Kaaba, in Mecca. What does the House of God represent to a believer? It brings to life a whole prophetic tradition, stretching from Abraham to Muhammad (May peace be upon them all). The House of God stands as a model of true faith in God, and submission to the Master of the House. “The Prophets gave up everything and followed the Lord,” is the message that rings out from the Lord’s House; “leave all and follow Him. They were obedient to His will; be you so also. They served His cause on Earth; serve Him until you die, and you will prosper forever.”

Islam is based on 5 pillars which are:

1. Shahadah: Professing that there is no other God but Allah and Muhammad is the last messenger of Allah.

2. Salat: Islamic prayer, 5 times a day. 

3. Sawm: Fasting, 30 days in the holy month of Ramadan.

4. Zakat: charitable giving.

5. Hajj: The Hajj is a pilgrimage that occurs during the Islamic month of Dhu al-Hijjah to the holy city of Mecca. Every able-bodied Muslim is obliged to make the pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in their lifetime: if he or she can afford it.
