Fulfil the dreams of a poor person and pay for them to go for Umrah.
- For peace of mind that your contributions are being spent in the correct manner we provide all donors/contributors with the following:
- Receipt for payment(s)
- Copy of the Hajji’s passport
- Photos of the Hajji in Mecca / Medina
- Phone number of Hajji (where possible).
- The 5 pillars of Islam for a poor person:
- Belief – La illah ila Allah Muhammad ur Rasul Allah
- Pilgrimage to the House of Allah (Hajj)
There are 5 pillars of Islam – 5 basic duties that are an obligation for every Muslim to perform.
In most cases, every Muslim rich or poor can observe the first 4 pillars without a problem.
The fifth pillar of performing pilgrimage or Hajj, to the house of Allah (SWT) is no doubt the most difficult of the 5 pillars to perform. The reason for this is due to the high financial costs associated with the journey.
The journey of Hajj has evolved over the years. In the past, any Muslim could travel to the house of Allah (SWT), on foot, by camel or by horse and set up camp in Mecca in order to perform their obligations to the Almighty. The journey was no doubt difficult but the only real expense that the Muslims before us had when traveling to Mecca was the cost of food. Even shelter was cheap as most Muslims would set up makeshift camps.
Times have now changed. We’re now living in the age of passports, visas, border restrictions, skyscrapers, 5-star hotels, air-conditioned coaches, taxi’s, compulsory vaccinations, airfares, coach fares, train fares and many many other crippling expenses.
The average cost of visiting the House of Allah (SWT) to perform Hajj is around Rs 300000/- INR
The average cost of visiting the House of Allah to perform Umrah is around Rs 50000 /- INR
This is a huge amount of money. How can a poor person who can barely afford to feed himself and his family be expected to raise this amount of money to perform his basic obligations?
Although Allah (SWT) through his mercy has stated clearly that the duty of performing Hajj is only obligatory for those who can afford it, we have to also remember that many Muslims have also been blessed with vast amounts of wealth. In particular, those living in western countries such as the UK, USA, Europe and not to mention the gulf states; states such as Kuwait, Qatar, UAE, Saudi Arabia etc.
We has been set up with a basic vision: to offer free Hajj and Umrah to as many poor Muslims around the world as possible.
We do this by inviting those Muslims around the world who are blessed with wealth to pay or contribute towards cheap Hajj packages and cheap Umrah packages so that poor Muslims around the world can visit the House of Allah to perform Hajj or Umrah.
Zakat money and Sadaqah money can be paid towards the costs for a poor person to perform Hajj or Umrah.
Each poor person that we select to send for free Hajj or free Umrah is carefully selected and screened to ensure that they qualify as a genuinely poor person.
Every person who pays for or makes a contribution towards a poor person performing Hajj or Umrah is given conclusive proof that the journey was completed by the poor person that they have selected.
We provide copies of passports, visas and photos of the person before and during their Hajj / Umrah visit.
We also ask the poor person to pose in Mecca / Medina holding a sign with a personal message for the person(s) who have paid for their trip.
We can also arrange for you to call/speak to the poor person who you’re paying for, for your own peace of mind should you wish to ensure that your contributions have been spent correctly or ask the person you are paying for to make any specific dua requests for you.
We prefer payment via bank transfer as you don’t get charged any bank fees.
