The attainment of the provision and wealth to perform hajj, is a reflection to take provision for the afterlife by doing good actions and beware that his actions are not ruined by showing off


When he departs from his city leaving his family and friends behind and he begins the difficult journey ahead, it is a reflection on departing this Dunya for the final destination, the day of resurrection and every difficulty that lies in between

#03. IHRAM

When its time for ihram and he removes the clothes of the dunya that he wears with pride and he is naked apart from the 2 white clothes, it is a reflection the kafan, the 2 white burial sheet sheets, and that when he meets his Lord he wonโ€™t be wearing the garments of the people fo the Dunya.


When he makes the talbiyyah, is a reflection of his answering the call of Allah, having hope it is answered

ูˆูŽุฃูŽุฐู‘ูู† ูููŠ ุงู„ู†ู‘ูŽุงุณู ุจูุงู„ู’ุญูŽุฌู‘ู ูŠูŽุฃู’ุชููˆูƒูŽ ุฑูุฌูŽุงู„ู‹ุง ูˆูŽุนูŽู„ูŽู‰ูฐ ูƒูู„ู‘ู ุถูŽุงู…ูุฑู ูŠูŽุฃู’ุชููŠู†ูŽ ู…ูู† ูƒูู„ู‘ู ููŽุฌู‘ู ุนูŽู…ููŠู‚ู

And proclaim to the people the Hajj (22:27)


When he reaches the haram – the kaโ€™bah built for worship, he hopes for acceptance of his journey and is afraid that he didnโ€™t do enough. When he sees the Kaโ€™bah, his heart trembles and he thanks Allah that he made it to the level of those who answered the call and visited His ancient house.


When he does tawaaf of the house, he reflects over its importance and that it is prayer. Then when he kisses the black stone, he renews his covenant of submission and obedience to Allah and makes the firm resolve to fulfil the covenant.


When he goes between the two mountains Safa and Marwah, it is a reflection that on judgement day his actions will be weighed between the two the scales of deeds.ย 


When he is standing on Arafah, and he looks and sees hundreds of thousands of people, their voices raised in Duโ€™a and supplication, in different languages, it is a reflection of yawn al-Qiyaamah, the Day of standing, when every nation that ever existed will be in one place seeking intercessionย 


When he throws the stones (jimaar) – he is in submission and complete compliance with Allahโ€™s command, and showing complete servitude and worship, there being nothing in it for the person


When he visits Madinah, he reflects that it is the country that Allah chose for his Prophet Muhammad, and made Hijrah there an obligation and decreed it to be the burial place of the Prophet.ย  Then reflects on all the places of the Prophetโ€™s footsteps throughout Madinah, and reflects on the prophetsย  khushooโ€™ and sakeenah. ย 


If he visits the Prophet’s grave, he reflects on his lofty status, and then he sends salutations on him, in the knowledge that he is made aware of the salutations.ย 

ุฐูŽูฐู„ููƒูŽ ูˆูŽู…ูŽู† ูŠูุนูŽุธู‘ูู…ู’ ุดูŽุนูŽุงุฆูุฑูŽ ุงู„ู„ู‘ูŽู‡ู ููŽุฅูู†ู‘ูŽู‡ูŽุง ู…ูู† ุชูŽู‚ู’ูˆูŽู‰ ุงู„ู’ู‚ูู„ููˆุจู

Whoever honours the symbols of Allah, it is certainly out of the piety of the heart. [Al-Hajj:32]
