Haj is one of the five pillars of Islam. Muslims declare that there is no god worthy of worship but Allah and that Muhammad is His messenger; they pray, they fast, they pay obligatory charity, and they go for Haj. Haj is a pilgrimage to the city of Makah in Saudi Arabia. At the mosque and in the surrounding area, Muslims perform prayers and rituals. Haj is an obligatory act performed once in a lifetime by all mentally, physically and financially able Muslims.

BISMILLĀHIR RAHMĀNIR RAHĪM
Glory to Allāh and Salutations on Rasulullāh Sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam
This Dunyā, with all its glitter and glamour, is a very enticing place. At times we get so carried away by it that we become its slave and forget our Rabb. We start living a life that is totally against the commands of Allāh Ta’ala and the Sunnāh of Rasulullāh (Sall-Allāhu ‘alayhi wasallam).

Before any decision we have to make, we hear a voice that shows us the way and directs us toward what is right. From the moment we wake up in the morning, wherever we may go and whatever we may do, this voice accompanies us.
Nobody else can hear it but that voice speaks to us of justice, moral virtue, humility, honesty and sincerity; in short everything that is good.
