Heavenly Journey of Hajj is the most critical one

October 11, 2018

We played out the umrah on that equivalent night, driven by mutawif or religious aides. A few necessary customs should be performed. Initially, we have to absolute our goal in our heart to play out the umrah; this we had done before in the plane, while it was hovering above QarnulManazil, Saudi Arabia, around 2 hours before the arrival.

The second ceremonial was to play out the tawafumrah. We entered the Masjidil Haram, the blessed mosque, through King Abdul Aziz Gate or Gate Number 1. After observing the Kaabah, I said to myself: “Thank you Allah for enabling me to be your visitor”. Before playing out the tawaf, the hajj explorers must discuss the goal just before Hajar al-Aswad or the Black Stone at the mass of Kaabah. We at that point strolled around the Kaabah in hostile to clockwise course seven times, going by Makam Ibrahim and Hijir Ismail.

Playing out the sa’ieumrah at Safar and Marwah was the third custom. At Safar, with our face confronting Kaabah, we discussed our expectation to play out the sa’ieumrah packages deals 2018-2019 and began to stroll towards Marwah, around 420 meters away, and back. We did this seven times hence we should end at Marwah. At Marwah, we completed our fourth and the last custom of umrah by trimming our hair (called tahallul); recounting our aim to part from wearing the ihram. Men were required to trim somewhere around three strands of their hair, around 2.5 cm long, while it will be longer for ladies. It is imperative that every one of the customs must be performed in succession.

For a few days that were left before we played out the hajj appropriate, we wearing ordinary way. We invested the energy overhauling our religious exercises, much so playing out the petitions, five times each day, perusing the al-Quran and in addition recounting the various doa at the Masjid Haram. It was made realized that a supplication done at this mosque is 100,000 times superior to anyplace else. We accepted each open door to drink the zam water after each petition.

On 5 November (9 Zulhijjah), clad in ihram clothing once more, our gathering left for Arafah. The time was around 12:50 a.m. We articulated our aim to play out the hajj while in the transport and furthermore discussed talbiah amid the adventure. We should be available physically, or called wukuf, at Arafah as this is the main custom movement for hajj. Our Prophet Muhammad, peace arrive, had once stated: “Hajj is Arafah”. As far as timing, all the hajj travelers must be at Arafah, notwithstanding for a second, from zohor (evening) of 9 Zulhijjah till subuh (first light) of 10 Zulhijjah. At around 12:05 p.m., we began our wukuf with a message, trailed by zohor gathering petition.

At Arafah, my significant other DrRokiah and myself raised our hands high and appealed to Allah for the prosperity and advancement of ourselves and our little girls, Dr. Sarah and Syazana; relatives and companions. It was amid this time tears running down from our eyes. At Arafah, our brains were not considering whatever else but rather simply requesting the absolution from Allah. After isyak (night) supplication, we cleared out for Muzdalifah. Here, we sufficiently gathered stones for melontar or ‘stoning-the-demon’ custom movement at Jamarah in Mina.

We achieved Mina at around 4:00 a.m. on 10 Zulhijjah (6 November 2011). Pioneers were required to be in Mina from 10 to 13 Zulhijjah by goodness of melontar exercises.

As we intended to return to Makkah for the night, we played out the molantar on the 10 Zulhijjah at Big Jamarah (Jamrah Aqaba) at around 11:50 p.m., trailed by trimming our hairs. Once more, by trimming our hairs, we would then be able to part with our ihram clothing. We at that point strolled towards Makkah with four different companions and achieved our lodging around one hour and after ten minutes.

The following day, my significant other and myself returned to Mina as pillion travelers for 100 Saudi Riyal each. We halted at Jamarah and played out the melontar at Small Jamarah, Middle Jamarah and Big Jamarah. The ceremonies were rehashed on the following two days. We cleared out Mina for Makkah by transport toward the evening of 13 Zulhijjah. To finish the hajj ceremonies, despite everything we have to play out the tawaf haji and sa’ie haji. I did this with my better half on 12 November 2011, after Isyak petition.
