The Essentials of Hajj and Umrah
This course provides a basic step-by-step guide to performing Hajj and Umrah
About The Course
Hajj is the fifth pillar of Islam and an obligation upon every sane adult Muslim who has the physical, mental and financial ability to perform Hajj. For most, performing Hajj is a once in a lifetime opportunity, making it indeed a journey of a lifetime.
“The importance of Hajj as a fardh and the fact that most of us may only get one chance at it makes it even more crucial that we perform our Hajj correctly.”
Most people often try to learn about Hajj and Umrah from talks in the Masajid: no books or resources and thus no real learning. Al Balagh, however, offers you a course that will cover all about the theory and practical guidance on pilgrimage.
You get to learn the rules and practical dos and don’ts of performing Hajj and Umrah in a structured course, the virtue and rulings of sacred pilgrimage carried out by the Prophet Ibrahim (AS) and what has been taught to us by our beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW. The course aims to equip you with the technical and practical knowledge to deal with all of the various situations you will encounter when performing Hajj.
The lecturers will provide you with the theory of Hajj and Umrah and inform you of the many modern-day issues that are likely to affect you when you make your journey. You will also be given plenty of advice and practical tips on making your hajj journey hassle-free by avoiding practical difficulties.
