Hajj is the fifth pillar of Islam, and is required of every Muslim who is both physically and financially able to complete it. But there are many questions regarding the pilgrimage, some of which we hope to answer here.
Hajj is an excellent opportunity for Dua, a time when we are visitors to God’s house, when we are not distracted by our day to day lives. Here are a few suggested Duas we can make during the journey of a lifetime.
Prophet Mohammed said: "There aren't any days greater, nor any days in which deeds done in them are more beloved to Allah Most High, than these ten days." Here is a sample schedule of activities you can do together in these blessed days.
While Ramadan is a special time, there are ways to incorporate the blessings of fasting on regular basis. While one can fast any time of the year, there are days specifically mentioned that carry more reward should one partake in fasting.
Allah says in the Quran: “Call on me, I will respond to you” [40:60]. Given our current climate, filled with hate and negativity, we often feel hopeless. Use the last day of Ramadan as a time to unload our worries, our troubles to Allah.
These deep duas are being written just as guidelines. No names are real. Please adopt, modify, and write your own Duas. The point is to get into talking to our Lord directly, in our style, in our language
