My Hajj – A step by step guide to Hajj & Umrah
With the grace of Almighty Allah, today I am so happy to announce “My Hajj” – our very own eLearning course on Hajj & Umrah for everyone, anytime, anywhere.
For this project, I was lucky to team up with with Br. Ismail David (of AMID Inspirations, who also happens to be the author of the book – “Getting the Best out of Al-Hajj“) and Sheik Mamdouh Mahmoud (Roots & Sprouts) & we have worked tirelessly to put together a course which is detailed & practical yet clear & concise – with the sole aim of guiding you through the essentials of Hajj & Umrah according to the Quran and Sunnah. The course will live at the Hajj Course page – and is divided into 10 parts,
Part 1 – Introduction – which covers essential background and basic definitions
Part 2 – Overview – of the entire Hajj from start to finish
Part 3 – Before You Depart – in which we discuss what you should do before departing for Hajj
Part 4 – Ihraam – will be a discussion of this special state of ritual consecration one must be in to perform Umrah and Hajj
Part 5 – Journey from Home to Makkah – where we will discuss the trip from home to Makkah & how to spend your time during the trip
Part 6 – Makkah – where we will explore Makkah and become acquainted with the Kabah and the Haram
Part 7 – Rites and Rituals – in which we will explore the Hajj rites and rituals in detail, including Tawaaf and Sa’ee
Part 8 – Umrah – will detail a step by step explanation on how to perform Umrah
Part 9 – Between Umrah and Hajj – where we we will provide suggestions on what you should do between Umrah and Hajj
Part 10 – Hajj – will dive into a detailed account of Hajj in detail and present the best actions one can perform
Unfortunately the animations for each part aren’t complete yet, but as Hajj is approaching, will be releasing draft versions of each part over the next few weeks. But do stay tuned for the final versions which will also be released on the Hajj Course page.
Hope it is beneficial for you & that you enjoy the course,
Further to my previous post which summarizes where Hajj takes place and the locations involved, I wanted to share with everyone a special map of these Hajj locations – including main features, distances & geographic coordinates (mashAllah).
