The Pilgrimage (Hajj and Umrah)

SKU: F-HU Categories: ,


Course brief and learning outcomes

We often try to learn about hajj and umrah from talks in the masjid: no notes, no resources and thus no real learning. Learn all about the rules and practical ins and outs of performing Hajj and Umrah in a structured course, the sacred pilgrimage carried out by the Prophet Ibrahim (AS) and taught to us by our beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW. The course will cover every aspect of Hajj and Umrah equipping every participant with the technical and practical knowledge to be able to deal with all of the various situations one will encounter when performing hajj. Learn to avoid common pitfalls and find out ways in which you can maximise the use of your time whilst you are visiting the House of Allah SWT. The teacher will be an expert on the theory of Hajj and Umrah as well as someone who has undertaken the journey and thus will be about to inform you of the many modern day issues that are likely to affect you when you make your journey and whilst you stay in Saudi Arabia. You will also be given plenty of advice on clever ways in which you can make your hajj journey as hassle free as possible and avoid practical difficulties. The course will cover the rules of Hajj, Umrah, and Ziyarah of Madinah and the grave of our beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW.
