Necessary for haj and umrah
Dear hajis! May Allah the glorious bless in the voyage of your haj pilgrimage. Arrange for everything required three to four days prior to your journey. Also get counseling from any experience Haji. Though everything of the requirements of life is available at the holy Hijaz, taking those things from your land would result in much saving, because everything is costlier there. During the time of Hajj, most of the things are available at a high cost.

But remember that keeping less luggage would result in more comfort in the journey. Now we give a list of few things, as a part of counseling, to take with you if possible. In sha’ Allah, during the time of journey, these would prove to be of a great value.

Health Certificate
All Hajis are required as per the law to keep ready well in advance the papers required for their journey. For example, the health certificate. This you will get from the Haji Camp, after taking injections for Cholera, measles, etc. If there is any discrepancy found, you would not be allowed to embark in the ship, or you could face any problem at the sea port of Jeddah.
