Course Specification


Hajj is the fifth pillar of Islam and fardh upon every sane Muslim adult who has the ability to perform Hajj. For most of us, performing Hajj is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

“The importance of Hajj and the fact that we might only get one shot at it makes it even more crucial that we get Hajj right”.

And for that we need to prepare thoroughly in advance which is why Ebrahim College are running this course.

Learn all about the rules and practical ins and outs of performing Hajj and Umrah in a structured course. The course will cover every aspect of Hajj and Umrah equipping every student with the technical and practical knowledge to be able to deal with all of the various situations you 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 teachers are experts on the theory of Hajj and Umrah as well as people who have undertaken the journey many times and therefore will be able 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.
