“And proclaim the pilgrimage among men! They will come to you on foot and (mounted) on every kind of lean camel, through deep and distant mountain highways” Surah Hajj

W

ith the months of Hajj fast approaching, will you be of the fortunate ones who respond to Allah’s call? Millions of people shall prepare and leave their homes to answer this very call that tugs at the heart of every believer. Will you be amongst those who proclaim “Labbayk Allahumma labbayk…” at your service o Allah, at your service” in answer to a universal call that transcend time? Once again the beautiful cities of Makkah and Madinah will flourish with pilgrims pouring in from all corners of the globe. Each one racing towards the mercy of Allah and focusing completely on this tremendous journey ahead. Indeed this journey is like no other – it is a journey of the heart and soul; a journey that shall, InshaAllah, change your life forever. Just imagine casting your eyes on the Ka’bah for the first time. Peace. Silence. Light. The blessedness of experiencing that moment and its beauty are so profound and personal those words cannot capture the reality of that special feeling that permeates your soul. How can you describe that moment, when you find yourself standing at the most sacred place on the earth, tranquillity descending upon you, your heart feeling overwhelmed and tears uncontrollably rolling down your cheeks? This is the beginning of your journey of a lifetime… We, at Umrah and Hajj Specialist extend an invitation for you, to come and join us this year on this sacred journey. The Umrah and Hajj Specialist 2012 package has evolved from years of experience and dedication. Paramount to us is

following the Quran and Sunnah in all of our dealings with our pilgrims. We understand that for the majority of people Hajj truly is undertaken only once in their lifetime, hence the importance cannot be emphasized enough on ensuring that the Hajj, from beginning to end, is in total compliance with the Prophetic Sunnah. Thus we have advised a unique educational programme that we incorporate in the trip – beginning with the pre-Hajj seminar here in the UK before departure and followed by a series of inspirational and informative lectures delivered throughout our stay in Saudi Arabia. Hajj for many of us is a ‘turning point’ and we pray that our pilgrims return safely to the UK with the renewed faith and increased commitment to their Creator. We pride ourselves on providing a high quality service to our brothers and sisters, whilst remaining honest, reliable and fair in all our dealing – delivering what we promise. Alhamdulillah as a result of this we have become one of the UK’s most reputable Hajj companies. Additionally for your peace of mind you shall be accompanied by our experienced UK staff throughout the trip as well as our Saudi counterparts who join us on arrival into the Kingdom. From previous customer feedback we have improved the hotels in Madinah for all our packages to the brand new Al Madinah Royal Dar Al Eiman offering delightful accommodation few steps away (150 meters) from the Prophets Mosque. Alhamdulillah this year we offer a selection of packages to choose from that will appeal to all tastes and requirements. Our packages includes the very successful 3 Week Super Deluxe / Super Deluxe Plus, 4 Week Super Deluxe Plus and 4 Week Super Deluxe hajj packages. All of these packages give you sufficient time to enjoy Makkah and Madinah before you begins the Hajj rites. If 3 and 4 weeks are too long for you, then the 2 Week Super Deluxe Plus and 2 Week Super Deluxe packages are the best to select. We are confident that these are one of the best 2-week Hajj itineraries at given prices in the UK market. Whichever package you decide to choose you can rest assured that our dedicated and committed team of organisers will accompany you throughout your journey and will be available to assist and guide you.

And when we made the house (at makkah) a resort for mankind and a sanctuary, (saying): take as your place of worship the place where ibrahim stood. We imposed a duty upon ibrahim and isma’il, (saying): purify my house for those who go around and those who are staying there for worship and those who bow down and prostrate themselves (in worship). surah al -baqarah (2) : 125 2

Customer Feedback From

Last Years Pilgrims Having performed Hajj with you was one of the best experience of my life. Jazakallah and may Allah bless you... I am so glad that I choose to go to Hajj with your lovely group. I have made the right decision on my own through your very well organized website. It enlightened me with all steps of Hajj and it reflects the 26 years’ experience in organizing Hajj and Umrah trips... Alhamdulillah! We perform all the hajj rites properly according to Quraan and Sunnah... What was promised, you delivered. Jazakallah... Excellent job done by Umrah and Hajj Specialist’s team. They are very dedicated and helpful throughout the trip... We would like to thanks to all your dedicated, hardworking and friendly staff who helped us and make hajj 2011”a journey of a life time... It’s my pleasure that I was with you in the three week super deluxe package last year. All the arrangements were excellent and you really honoured your commitments... A step by step guidance throughout the tour was one of the best thing of the package... The lectures before hajj were inspiring... An unforgettable journey of my life. May Allah (swt) give you Jaza... Everything was very professional and the excellent work done by the organisers... The proximity of hotels to the Haram was one of the best thing of the package... Very honest and straight forward in all your dealing... Appreciate your efforts to make our hajj more comfortable. May Allah accept it from you and us. Ameen...

Abu Hurairah (RA) reports that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said

“Whoever performs Hajj for the sake of pleasing Allah and therein utters no word of evil, nor commits any evil deed, shall return from it as free from sin as the day on which his mother gave birth to him�


Staying in Aziziyyah

After enjoying the sufficient stay in Madinah and Makkah’s luxurious 5 star hotels we will move to our Aziziyyah apartments before Hajj rites. Aziziyyah is a district of Makkah, which is located a few miles away from the Haram.

We have secured a building in Aziziyyah which is walking distance from Jamaraat (about 5 Minutes) – this means that you will have easy access to this building throughout the Hajj days while you are in Mina.

It will be a good opportunity to rest and prepare yourself mentally and physically for the Hajj rites on 8th Dhul-Hijjah.

In Aziziyyah we will be staying in basic yet functional accommodation. All rooms are air-conditioned.

We will be spending 2-3 days before hajj and 2 days after Hajj in our Aziziyyah apartments. These 5 days are most expensive in terms of hotel pricing in the immediate walking vicinity of the Haram Sharif. By avoiding these 4-5 days through shifting Hajj Packages, one is guaranteed 5 star hotels in our Super Deluxe and Super Deluxe Plus Hajj packages. This is a much better value for money than ordinary non-shifting hajj packages, where one pays similar prices but receives highly ordinary hotels in Makkah and Madinah.

4-6 People will be accommodated in each room. Men and women may be separated in to different rooms.

Frequently Asked Questions Does anyone accompany the group from the UK? Yes, about 7 organisers accompany the group from the UK most of whom have performed Hajj many times. All organisers are fluent in English as well as a few who are fluent in Arabic. We also have Saudi team that joins us once we arrive in Saudi Arabia, which has decades of experience in organizing Hajj. Do you provide any religious guidance? Yes, we try to organize regular lecture whilst in Saudi Arabia, covering the rites of Hajj in detail. Our staff will be with you throughout the tour and available to answer any question. How much money do I need to take with me? You should take a few hundred pounds with you. How much does a meal cost? An average meal would be about 20 Riyals (approx. £3) What is the exchange rate? The exchange rate is around 6 riyals to the pound. Is the source of the money that I use for Hajj important? The money that you use to pay for the Hajj must be from Halal sources. It is stated in the Prophetic tradition, “indeed Allah is pure and accepts only, that which is pure. I do not have a British Passport – Will I get a visa for Hajj? Non British passport holders will be given a visa if they are on a work permit, student visa, a passport with indefinite leave to remain, or are in the UK to live with their spouse. Passports carrying only visit visa will not be granted a hajj visa. What is the last date for booking? We do not have a published deadline for bookings – our capacity is limited once we sell the last seat for a particular package, we will not be able to accept any further bookings. Our packages are very popular and sell very quickly – we therefore recommend that you book as soon as possible. Can I book a Haram facing room in Makkah and Madinah? All our rooms are standard rooms, therefore we are unable to guarantee a Haram view room, and however if we are given any Haram view rooms, these are allocated on a random basis to remain as fair as possible. How do I get my clothes washed? There are lots of launderettes near the Haramayn in Makkah & Madinah that will wash and press your cloths, usually within 24 hours, ask one of our organisers or the hotel reception. The 5 star hotels provide this service for their guests but it is considerably more expensive. How are the men and women accommodated in Mina? Men and women stay in separate tents in Mina. The men’s and women’s tents are normally adjacent to each other. Will I be able to contact my wife in Mina? Yes, but under no circumstances will men be allowed to enter the women’s tent. What interpretation of Islam will be adopted? Every thing will be according to the Quran & Sunnah, inshaALLAH. How do I arrange my sacrifice? Cost of sacrifice includes in all our packages however if someone want to do extra qurbani, it will cost approximately £ 75. You will be given the precise information upon arrival in Saudi Arabia. Can I change the flight dates? The flight dates are not changeable Can you organise for me to fly to another destination after the completion of Hajj? All pilgrims must travel on our flights back the UK. Do I need to visit your office to book? No, you post your booking form and deposit. All valuable documents should be sent to us using special delivery likewise we would return all valuable documents via special delivery.

Booking Procedure We have limited spaces available and usually sell out fast! to avoid disappointment, book as soon as possible.

1234

All applicants must complete a separate booking form as fully as possible.

A deposit of £1000 per person must accompany the booking form which is non-refundable

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Hajj can be physically very demanding. Unfortunately we are not able to take responsibility for any pilgrims that have special requirements. In order to complete the rites of Hajj we require that all pilgrims are fit enough to walk for approximately 45 minutes. In case any pilgrim is not fit enough to do so, he/she should take a wheelchair with them as well as a companion who will take responsibility for them. We also strongly recommend that pilgrims seek medical clearance from their GP before booking, particularly the elderly and sick. Please note that the journey of Hajj cannot be equated to holiday travel. During this journey the unexpected is often the norm; despite careful planning and organisation the Hajj journey can never be taken for granted like a normal holiday. Hotels, Transport and Public services are all pushed to their limits during Hajj season, therefore do not expect that same level of service that you are accustomed in the UK. Due to the large number of pilgrims in a small area, the crowds can be overwhelming, also due to major traffic, congestions, expect very long delays whilst waiting for buses to arrive and moving from one location to another, especially during the days of the Hajj Rites

The following are also required and will be requested by us when we are ready to submit the visa application.

Full payment will be required by one month before departure date.

Passport (must be valid for at least 6 months on the date of travel. Non European community (EC) passport holders must have permanent residency and must have entered the UK two months prior to applying. (foreign passports will only be accepted if endorsed “Indefinite stay” by the home office or in case of passport holder living in the UK with a spouse, or on a student/work visa). Children who have been endorsed on their parents’ passport will only be granted a visa of a photo of a child has also been endorsed on the passport by the passport office. • Proof of relationship with Mahram. (marriage/birth certificate, etc) • 4 Passport sized photographs • A completed visa application form • We will retain your passport until visas have been issued, which could take until the end of September.
