Hajj is not about what you do, or how you do it, it’s about who you do with it. Having the right company with you on Hajj can make the difference between a bland trip full of rituals, and the journey of a lifetime that changes your life forever.
This year we are pleased to announce that our Hajj group for 2018 will be accompanied by a very special guest speaker, Babar Ahmad.
Throughout the trip he will be sharing personal stories from his life about miracles that he witnessed, dreams he had that came true and duas of his that were answered when he was drowning in despair.
We are confident that no other Hajj tour this year will have a guest like him.
If you’re looking for a package that allows you to perform Hajj with the minimum time away, and includes a visit to Madinah, then this is the perfect package for you.
Our Express Package has been designed for those who are unable to travel for a long period of time, due to work or other commitments. This package will allow you to complete your Hajj and fulfill all the rights of Hajj, within a period that is suitable for you.
Our refined itinerary involves the least amount travelling as you will be flying directly into Madinah Airport with a possible transit, so you can spend more time and focus on the true purpose of your journey.
In addition to special guest Babar Ahmad, our Hajj group of 2018 will be accompanied by the esteemed Sheikh Shaqur Rehman. A fluent English and Arabic speaker who studied in Egypt, Syria and Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Shaqur also has a MA in Applied Linguistics.
He is a hafiz of the Quran with authorisation (ijazah) in recitation. He is currently a Senior Advisor at the Islamic Council of Europe.
Here is what one of our young pilgrims, who performed Hajj with us in 2017, had to say about him:
“Our religious guide Sheikh Shakur, what can I say? Absolute legend, very very knowledgeable, approachable, in touch with the youth. Made me feel very comfortable to the extent I was able to ask him for advice on very personal situations outside of Hajj. He is also a very funny guy which I must say destroyed all my preconceptions of religious guides!” [MM, Hajj 2017]
