Minute Details Regarding Hajj Vaccinations

Our Tabung Haji Travel’s Hajj Group KT85 left Kompleks Haji Kelana Jaya, close to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 10 buses on the night time of 29 October 2011, with Police escort, heading for Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). As our vacation spot became Makkah, all male hajj pilgrims have been already dressed in their ihram attire. The aircraft took off at approximately three:15 a.M. And we landed in Jeddah about 7    hours later. We then traveled to Makkah by way of bus and ultimately reached our Dar Al-Eiman Royal Hotel placed in Al-Safwa Towers simply before 5:00 p.M. For Muslims, performing the hajj is the 5th and the remaining pillar of Islam.

We performed the umrah on that identical night time, led with the aid of mutawif or non secular publications. Several compulsory rituals want to be performed. Firstly, we want to utter our intention in our coronary heart to perform the umrah; this we had completed earlier inside the aircraft, at the same time as it was flying above Qarnul Manazil, Saudi Arabia, approximately 2 hours earlier than the touchdown.

The second ritual turned into to carry out the tawaf umrah. We entered the Masjidil Haram, the holy mosque, through King Abdul Aziz Gate or Gate Number 1. Upon seeing the Kaabah, I said to myself: “Thank you Allah for allowing me to be your visitor”. Before acting the tawaf, the hajj pilgrims need to recite the aim just before Hajar al-Aswad or the Black Stone on the wall of Kaabah. We then walked around the Kaabah in anti-clockwise course seven instances, passing by Makam Ibrahim and Hijir Ismail.

Performing the sa’ie umrah at Safar and Marwah changed into the third ritual. At Safar, with our face dealing with Kaabah, we recited our goal to perform the sa’ie umrah and started out to walk toward Marwah, about 420 metres away, and back. We did this seven instances as a consequence we ought to stop at Marwah. At Marwah, we finished our fourth and the remaining ritual of umrah by slicing our hair (referred to as tahallul); reciting our purpose to part from carrying the ihram. Men were required to reduce at the least 3 strands in their hair, approximately 2.5 cm in length, even as it’ll be longer for women. It may be very essential that all the rituals must be finished in collection.

For numerous days that have been left earlier than we carried out the hajj proper, we dressed in everyday manner. We spent the time upgrading our religious activities, a whole lot so performing the prayers, 5 instances in step with day, reading the al-Quran as well as reciting the severa doa at the Masjidil Haram. It became made recognized that a prayer achieved at this mosque is one hundred,000 times higher than everywhere else. We took each possibility to drink the zam zam water after each prayer.

On five November (9 Zulhijjah), clad in ihram attire once more, our institution left for Arafah. The time was approximately 12:50 a.M. We uttered our aim to carry out the hajj while inside the bus and additionally recited talbiah throughout the adventure. We should be gift physically, or called wukuf, at Arafah as that is the first ritual interest for hajj. Our Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, had as soon as said: “Hajj is Arafah”. In terms of timing, all of the hajj pilgrims must be at Arafah, even for a 2nd, from zohor (afternoon) of nine Zulhijjah till subuh (sunrise) of 10 Zulhijjah. At about 12:05 p.M., we commenced our wukuf with a sermon, followed via zohor congregation prayer.

At Arafah, my spouse Dr Rokiah and myself raised our fingers excessive and prayed to Allah for the properly- being and betterment of ourselves and our daughters, Dr. Sarah and Syazana; own family contributors and buddies. It was for the duration of this time that tears jogging down from our eyes. At Arafah, our minds had been now not taking into consideration whatever else but just soliciting for the forgiveness from Allah. After isyak (night time) prayer, we left for Muzdalifah. Here, we collected sufficient stones for melontar or ‘stoning-the-satan’ ritual interest at Jamarah in Mina.

We reached Mina at about four:00 a.M. On 10 Zulhijjah (6 November 2011). Pilgrims have been required to be in Mina from 10 to 13 Zulhijjah by means of distinctive feature of melontar activities.

As we planned to move returned to Makkah for the night, we finished the molantar on the 10 Zulhijjah at Big Jamarah (Jamrah Aqaba) at approximately 11:50 p.M., followed by slicing our hairs. Again, with the aid of reducing our hairs, we will then element with our ihram apparel. We then walked towards Makkah with 4 other friends and reached our lodge approximately one hour and ten minutes later.

The next day, my wife and myself went back to Mina as pillion passengers for a hundred Saudi Riyal each. We stopped at Jamarah and carried out the melontar at Small Jamarah, Middle Jamarah and Big Jamarah. The rituals had been repeated on the following days. We left Mina for Makkah by way of bus in the afternoon of 13 Zulhijjah. To entire the hajj rituals, we still need to carry out the tawaf haji and sa’ie haji. I did this with my spouse on 12 November 2011, after Isyak prayer.

After performing tawaf wada’, we left for Madinah on 1 December, attaining our resort at approximately 10:00 p.M. While in Madinah, we prayed at the Masjid Nabawi which become 1,000 times higher than anywhere else. We additionally prayed on the Raudhah as well as passing via and performing the doa in the front of the wonderful tombs of Prophet Muhammad, Saiyidina Abu Bakar and Saiyidina Omar.

I did additionally bring my buddies’ greetings to the Prophet. For the following couple of days, the organizer added us to go to the encompassing areas which include Masjid haji plus  Quba, Masjid Kiblatain, Bukit Uhud, Khandak and date farm.

During our free time, normally earlier than afternoon prayer, my spouse and I did a little looking for dates and different gadgets at Taiba Complex and the encompassing areas.

On 10 December 2011, we finished the wada’ ritual at Masjid Nabawi before we left for Madinah Airport. The plane took off at about eight:25 a.M. Local time and landed at KLIA at approximately nine:25 p.M. Truly enough, the revel in gained as soon as in a life time while performing the hajj turned into just some thing which stays in the mind all the time. Thank you Allah for making it viable for me and my spouse.
