Other notes:

The surest way to have a bad Hajj experience is to get sick.  Alhamdu lillah, I was one of the very few who didn't.  My recommendations are to wear surgical masks at all times when out in crowds, and most importantly, NEVER touch any part of your face without washing your hands first, either with soap and water, or, more practically, with the new waterless hand wash gel.

Also, at the first symptom of any illness, take echinacea, vitamin C, aspirin or whatever else is indicated.  And, of course, drink plenty of water at all times.

Another important piece of advice is when you are out in crushing crowds to never, ever attempt to retrieve any dropped item.  Shoes, fans, books can all be replaced, but there is a severe risk of being trampled should you try to stop or bend down.  As several fatal stampedes have occurred at the stoning of the Jamarat, have a 'scout' from your group check the crowd situation before you attempt to go there.

Comment: Jazakha Allah Khayran, I wish to go to hajj next year insha Allah. I thought it will be good to start preparing now and this is a starting point for me. I found it helpful.

Comment: Asalam Alaikum, it is also important that any personal care products used, such as soap or lotion, during Hajj be compliant with Shariah, I found the following site very useful in this regard: www.labaykproducts.com

Comment: Indeed a very helpful list that can be used as last minute checklist. Some of my relatives advise me to bring Vaseline and wet tissue also.

Comment: i have no female member in my family to give me advise, so i found this as very informative and straightforward. it would be very uncomforatable to take along any unnecessary items.
