July 22, 2020 – July 25, 2020

You can feel the magnetic pull of the resonating call to prayer

As you walk purposefully towards Masjid Al Nabawi, responding to the echoing call to prayer, clearing your mind of all distractions, preparing to engage with your Lord, All-Hearing


July 25, 2020 – July 29, 2020

 As you walk slowly towards it and then suddenly, it takes your breath away

The world is full of unique and wonderful buildings, but the utterly indescribable feeling that you get from seeing the Ka’bah, performing tawaf around it, praying towards it, is like no other.

Manasik of Hajj

July 29, 2020 – August 3, 2020

The blessed days where millions converge with one sole purpose

Surrounded by fellow Muslims, all in the state of ihram, standing with hands outstretched, seeking forgiveness from our Lord, with anticipating hearts eager to receive.


August 3, 2020 – Group Departure

Relax, drop your shoulders and put your feet up

Take some time to unwind and relax whilst you contemplate on the magnificent feat you have just completed. You’ve rejuvenated your soul, now allow your body to catch up before you return home, completely recharged. 

I’m deeply thankful for all your kindness in assisting and guiding through this journey. May Allah bless you and all your loved ones with the best in this world and the next Ameen JAK.
