Beginning the Pilgrimage

Some suggestions to take note of, while beginning the pilgrimage
  • Intention/Niyyah, which is an obligation, can be made at home or during the journey, but care must be taken to follow the acts that comprise of “intention” before crossing the boundaries of Miqat. (The details of the Miqat area have been discussed in the preceding section, 5).
  • When you leave your house, recite the following Du’a Transliteration: Bismillahi Tawakkaltu Alallah In the Name of Allah, I have placed my trust in Allah.
  • On the eve of the journey, it is recommended to make lots of repentance for all the misdeeds so you travel not just with clean clothes but also a clean heart.
  • Join your group at their specified time if you are travelling with them.
  • As you board the Plane, recite the following Du’a: Transliteration: Subhanallazi Sakkharalana Haza Wama Kunna Lahu Mukhrineen Wa Inna Ila Rabbina Lamunkhalibun Glory be to the one who has subjugated this for us whereas we were not able to subjugate it on our own. And we will certainly be returning to our Lord. [Al-Quran]
  • For journey by water, following Du’a should be recited Transliteration: Bismillahi Majraiha Wamursaha Inna Rabbi Laghafoorurraheem He (NūH) said, “Embark it. With the name of Allah it sails and anchors. Surely, my Lord is Most-Forgiving, Very-Merciful. [Al-Quran 11:41]
  • Make sure the food served to you on the plane is indeed Halal.
  • Be careful about the times of Salah during the flight, so you don’t miss the prayers, especially if you are flying eastward to reach Makkah Al-Mukarramah.
  • Please uphold the virtues of Sabr (patience) and Taqwa (abstinence from sin) during this journey by safeguarding gaze, thoughts and forgiving others for any mistakes.
  • Please value time. That’s the most important of all advices one can follow. Scheduling time to avoid wastage, properly allocating it according to the priority of each ‘ibadah and trying to gain maximum virtues out of the trip is very important.
  • Try your best to serve, assist and honour fellow Hajis. Make Salaam, smile at fellow hajis, shake hands and try to be of help to people, whenever possible.
