July 25, 2020 – July 29, 2020

Home is where the heart is and Madinah is where you left it

Both those who have been and those who long to, all have a deep and endearing love for this blessed city, all because of the stories of sacrifice and struggle of the Prophet and his companions.


July 29, 2020 – August 4, 2020

 A reward no less than Paradise itself!

Huge masses of people, all travelling fervently in the same direction, from Mina to the plains of Arafat, for that big day, that moment that everything was building up to… the day of Hajj!

Manasik of Hajj

July 29, 2020 – August 2, 2020

The charm and vibrant colours of the Ummah converge here

Gaze in amazement at the beautiful diversity of Muslims from all around the world, each group with its own unique style and grace, but unified with one aim, to complete the Sacred Hajj.


A late-night stroll by the sea or a midday luxury shopping spree

Depending on your flight schedule, you may be able to enjoy a stay in Jeddah, relax by the Red Sea with views of the world’s tallest water fountain, visit the historic city of Al-Balad or shop until your drop in one of its many impressive malls.

JazakAllah Khair for making our Hajj super special. You and DST team have been nothing short of amazing in going above in beyond to make this Hajj trip safe and spiritual for all of us alhamdullillah.
