The Challenge

Trip dates: 12th February – 22nd Febraury 2015

What is the Makka Twin Peaks Challenge?

After performing your Umrah, your challenge is to trek up mount Noor and Thawr (Mecca, Saudi Arabia) on the same day, in the heat of an Arabian summer’s day. It takes about two hours to complete the trek of Mount Noor and anything up to 4 hours for Mount Thawr. The mountain paths are known for their steepness, this together with the difficult heat will be a test of your endurance. Normally only half of the participants manage to complete climbing both mountains. This year our hope is that all participants complete the challenge, insha-Allah. Please take note of the exercise tips within the terms and conditions and prepare for a difficult test!

After the exhausting challenge enjoy the rewards on offer by praying in the two holy masjids of Mecca and Madina and visit the historical sights of Islam through our sightseeing tours of the two holy cities, insha’Allah. By taking part in the Makka Twin Peaks Challenge you are contributing towards an important Islamic cause, share in the rewards of passing on good knowledge and help to improve our society, insha-Allah.

Hadrat Abu Huraira (radi Allahu ‘anhu) reported Allah’s Messenger (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) as saying, “Among the actions and good deeds for which a believer will continue to receive reward after his death are knowledge which he taught and spread, a good son whom he left behind, or a copy of the Qur’an which he left as a legacy…” (Ibn Majah and Baihaqi)
