Hajj tips for An easy & spiritual Hajj | British hajj travel

Hajj tips for An easy & spiritual Hajj by British haj travel. Hajj is an extremely rewarding religious obligation. Keeping in mind that over 3 million pilgrims attend Hajj in a small place. So, in order to make the whole process a little bit easier, I have put a list of essential things you should know before starting this beautiful journey.

#1 Have extra Copies of Important documents

Make sure you make extra copies of your documents as they could get lost. It’s always a good idea to keep extra copies in different places while on Hajj, for example, one in your luggage and one with you, in case you lose the one, you will have a backup copy.

#2 Check for obligatory vaccinations

Saudi officials require some obligatory vaccinations, so it will be for your own good if you make sure that you have made all the obligatory ones and have the certificates to prove it, as they can be requested by the authorities.

#3 Keep Fit

The fact that during Hajj someone could walk up to 20 miles, skips a lot of people’s mind and they start their Hajj journey without considering their physical state. It is extremely important to exercise before Hajj, as it will be easier for you, not only  to perform your religious obligations but also in order to enjoy more of your Hajj experience without tiredness. As being fit is vital, it is recommended that you start exercising up to 6 months before Hajj.

#4 Pack essentials for a comfortable stay

There are essentials that could make your stay in Mina much more comfortable, such as towels, a small backpack, tissues, slippers, plastic cups, travel toiletries and for the sister’s abayas that are comfortable and breathable. Create a small amenity kit for your Mina stay to have everything on hand. One piece hijabs for Umrah and Hajj could save sisters a lot of worrying, as they stay put and cover your hair. Furthermore, for a more comfortable stay you can consider extra sheets, a travel pillow and a camping mattress which are easy to carry.

#5 What you have in your carry on is very important

Having in mind that many people could wait 4 or more hours to be processed, what you have in your carry-on is extremely important for that hours. Some snacks for the long wait could be useful.  One extra abaya, Ihram, and some hygienic products could prove life-savers in case your bag gets lost.  Also, as the hajj terminal doesn’t have any facilities you should definitely bring extra water, fruits, and snacks. A pillow and a travel mat should be useful in this case too, as well as a pocket-sized dua book in order to get the maximum of every moment.

#6 Know that toilet facilities are limited

Knowing that toilets in Mina and the Hajj terminal are few and basic, you should limit your water and food consumption before entering the plane to Jeddah and during Hajj. You can get dehydrated during your flight, so try and balance your water intake, because you might feel the need to use the bathroom often, which could give you problems when arriving. You should use the bathroom before you leave the plane, as it’s it might be cleaner and more comfortable than the ones in the Hajj terminal.

#7 Don’t expect too much

If you don’t want to get disappointed you should keep your expectations low. Though Hajj can be extremely expensive, even with a VIP package, the service that is given might not be a 5-star. So, the best you could do is to have low expectations of your Hajj providers and ground services. This way you will avoid disappointment and enjoy your Hajj more.

#8 Expect to be pushed

Pushing – the unpleasant part of Hajj and Umrah. I could never understand why people keep pushing each other, as there is no apparent reason. Whether they want to go faster or want to finish as soon as possible or  just because they want to be in the front row, embrace yourself with patience as it’s something expected. As there is not gender segregation in pushing, if you’re a woman you should stay close to your mahram.

#9 Patience is your best friend

Having in mind that there are over 3 million people that have come to perform Hajj and everyone is different, you should be patient and tolerant, especially when things don’t go as you wanted them to. Remember that Allah SWT is the best of planners and you are a guest in this house. It is all part of the journey.

#10 Get Yourself the Hajj Journal

All the aforementioned tips should not scare you or make you put off your trip, but prepare you for what to expect and recommend a few good practical tips. As Hajj is one of the most transformational journeys in your life, it is worth the hardship that comes with it. As Allah SWT says with hardship comes ease. Enjoy every moment of this journey as you get the chance to connect with your Lord in a unique way.
