Take necessary provisions with you for the Hajj journey, but the best provision is right conduct.

A blessed pilgrimage is better than this world and all it contains. The reward is Paradise. Speaking well and feeding the poor make the pilgrimage blessed.

Muslims should perform the Hajj pilgrimage as soon as they are able as no one knows what lies ahead. [Ahmad, Ibn Majah, Abu Dawud]

Take from me your Hajj rites. [Muslim]

Pilgrims are the visitors of Allah. If they ask Him, He gives what they ask. If they seek His forgiveness, He forgives them. [Ibn Majah]

He who makes Pilgrimage to The House - avoiding indecent and immoral behaviour - emerges from his sins like a newborn baby. [Ibn Majah]


We are all travellers on the same journey - but some travellers have better road maps!
