The Holy Kaba’ah

Why Hajj is important for anyone who is looking for spiritual peace:

Hajj is one of the pillars of Islam. As the four other aspects of Islam (Faith, Salah, Fasting, Zakat), Hajj is also a very important part of the religion. People, regardless of their caste and creed come together at one place to renew their faith from all over via the private hajj packages 2020 Pakistan and the get their sins washed away. They visit the house of Allah to ask for His forgiveness and to make Dua’s to Him about anything that they want in this world and the hereafter.

Hajj can be performed as many times as a person may be able to perform and as many times he can get hajj packages from Pakistan. But, performing Hajj once is mandatory for every Muslim.

People who seek to become better human beings often choose to perform hajj because Hajj can bring out the best in everyone. The holy Kaba’ah which is the house of Allah is the center of all the activity. People try to spend as much time as possible around it because it is the best, purest, and the holiest place where a Muslim can be. Staying there, prying there and even laying down there has its own fun, it can put your mind and your body to internal peace. There is nothing that you would want to do than to stay there and enjoy the harmony of your religion.

The Holy Kaba’ah:

The holy Kaba’ah was built by Hazrat Ibrahim (AS) and by his son Hazrat Ismail (AS) many years before the advent of Islam and before both Hazrat Ibrahim (AS) and his son accepted Islam. Over the years the Kaba’ah was constructed again and again. Before Islam, there used to be idols but then in the era of Hazrat Muhamad (SAWW), he broke all the idols which were kept by the non-believers inside the Kaba’ah. Muslims don’t worship the Kaba’ah rather they worship their creator, Allah. Kaba’ah is just a symbol of the house of Allah and it is used as a direction when Muslims offer Salah. When Muslims visit Kaba’ah after they take hajj 2020 packages from Pakistan they face it while offering Salah.

The important rituals of Hajj:

Hajj consists of a total of six days. But before the three days begin the Muslims who want to visit Mecca and Madinah for hajj have to check for hajj package 2020 Pakistan price. After they get a good package they fly to KAS and the ‘Zahireen’ of Hajj enter into the state of ‘Ihram’ which means that nothing matters more than Allah and the religion. While in Ihram, men and women are not allowed to do any worldly thing like use perfume, makeup, cutting hair or nails, fighting or getting angry, etc. After that, the days of Hajj begins.

Day 1: Hajj begins in Mecca where the Zahireen performs Umrah. They perform a Tawaf of Kaba’ah seven times while reciting dua’s. Then they walk between two hills called Safa and Marwa which Hagar (Hazrat Ibrahim AS’s wife) walked in search of water. After Umrah is done, the Zahireen visit Madinah a city where Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) is buried. Then they go to Mina where they spend their night under the sky in tents.

Day 2: After a night in Mina, all the pilgrims move towards the Mount Arafat and do all their worship there. At sunset, the pilgrims move towards Muzdalifah, spend a night there and collect pebbles from there for ‘Rami’ the next day (hitting Shaitan with pebbles because he tried to stop Hazrat Ibrahim (AS) from praying).

Day 3-6: the last days of Hajj have 3 tasks. A final Tawaf of Kaba’ah, hitting Shaitan with pebbles and getting out of Ihram after sacrificing and animal. After these three tasks are done, men and women cut off their hair. After the final day of hajj, Eid-ul-Adha is celebrated.
