Zyarat in Makkah and Madinah.

Private transfers + VISA + return flights from Manchester all this was only for £975 per person !!

10 April 19: We all met at Manchester airport to get our flight to Jeddah. Arranged special assistance for three of our guests who need wheelchair assistance at the airports.

11 April 19: Upon arrival we took our private bus to Makkah hotel. A very nice surprise was waiting for us where the Hilton hotel decided to UPGRADE our stay to the famous Makkah CONRAD hotel even closer to the Haram for our 6 nights in Makkah !!!

          Massive room for only 2 adults !!!

11 April 19: 22:00pm after a bit of rest at our luxury rooms, we met at the Haram to perform our Umrah

          

12 April 19: We enjoyed Friday Khutba and prayer at the Haram.

    (Perfect spot for Asar/Maghreb prayers)

13 April 19: Performing the 5 prayers at the Haram. Some performed a second Umrah masha ALLAH.

            

14 April 19 : Time for our Makkah Ziyarat. We started early to be able to see as many sites as we can AND return before Dhohr time. We managed to see Jabal Althawr, Jabal Al Nour and of course Mena and Arafat area.

    

15  April 19

Fajr prayer at Haram

We wanted to go to Ghar Hiraa / Jabal AL Nour so went straight after Fajr prayer. Our Taxi dropped us after a very high hill(car was really struggling to move forward as in picture) and then we started to climb the uneven steps…It took about an hour to climb Jabal Al Nour and after Fajr is the right time to do it.. On the way up we had some unexpected guests but all went OK Thank God !!

                

   (could not have done it without these guys, have to say..)

Lovely experience to be honest….and really some pause for thoughts on how our belevoed Prophet “PBUH” have suffered climbing such a mountain to warship in Ghar Hira…

After such a hard exercise we went to our hotel for a well deserved breakfast and had some rest before Dhohr time.

16 April 19: We decided to do another Umrah as it is our last day in Makkah :((

17 April 19: Time for our journey to our Beloved Prophet’s Moqsue. We left Makkah around 13:30 just after Dhoh prayer, Prayed Asar on the way and reached Madinah in time for Maghreb prayer…

18 April 19: Our Hotel in Madinah “Elaf Taiba” which we have used several times before with no issues whatsoever, turned to be a bit of disappointment when it came to housekeeping, facilities and food. There was a huge gap between our hotel in Makkah and the Elaf Taibah in Madinah so I have decided to swich the hotel to the near by Elaf AL Mageedi. A huge thank you to their Sales team who were very helpful working till very late to make sure we check in the next morning without any delay.

As always, we all rushed to enjoy the five prayers in Masjid Nabawi, visiting the Rawdah Alsharifah and of course saying Salam to our beloved Prophet “PBUH”

    

19 April 19: Had a lovely breakfast at the hotel and we all got ready for the Friday prayer at Masjid Mabawi..

After Ishaa prayer  we have decided to go to one of of the malls to have a group dinner, I really enjoyed My Hanith meal !!!

  

20 April 19: Morning time was for our Madinah ziyarat. Our bus had a sligh accident from the back and had to wait for Police to document it so we hardly managed to visit Uhud mountain and then rushed to visit Qebaa mosque to perform 2 Rakkahs (to gain the reward of an Umrah in shaa ALLAH).

Evening time was for some shopping; we all enjoyed visiting “The Dates Market” and practiced our bargaining skills !.

21 April 19: Final day in Madinah so we all grabed every second

     

Afternoon time we had a farwell tea party..

   

 where I received a very precious gift from the group, Thank you all, really appreciated.

Evening time, sadly we had to leave the hotel for Madinah airport for our departure. Arrived ion good time to collect our Zamzam water and checked in for our flight back to Manchester.

We had a long stopover in Muscat so we have offered a half day tour to see the highlights of Muscat. Honestly we were all very impressed and enjoyed evey minute.

           

 We met as strangers but returned as one big family Alhamdulillah…

08/07/2018: We had our Manchester Hajj seminar with Mr Ez and one of our Guides, Hajj Hamdei. We explained how we will check in at the airport and how we will manage the luggage at airports and at the hotels. We also answered loads of questions about the 5 days of Hajj and gave out Elmakay special bags for everyone. We also created a whatsapp group to make it easier to communicate and let everyone know each others.

05/08/2018: We had our London and main Hajj seminar with more than 130 customers at the AL Manaar Mosque – The Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre at Acklam rd-London. All our guides were there; Hajj Hamdei- Hajj Mughees – Hajj Ahmed and of course Mr Ez.  We gave out the Hajj visas and passports to all customers and also answered loads of questions about the whole process.

12/08/2018: Our Manchester group left at 06:30am to be at Heathrow airport in time for our flight. Thank God all other customers coming from London and Birmingham came to the airport in time and checked in smoothly. Mr Ez, our guides and Our Imam Mr Ashraf, were at the airport to meet our customers at the departure gate. Stop over at Cairo airport was a good chance for all men to put on Ihram clothes using the Ihram facilities there.

13/08/2018: Our group arrived at Jeddah airport around 5am and we were outside the airport around 10am “alhamdulilah” to start the journey to Makkah. Checked in at our hotel in Makkah around 12:00 – Rooms were allocated quickly and customers went to sleep straight away. Agreed to do Umrah after dinner.

At 22:00 all customers met at hotel reception for our Umrah. Customers who performed Umrah previously were OK to go on their own. We divided the group into 3 small groups and they all did the Umrah safely and returned around 3am for a well deserved good night sleep after getting out of state of Ihram.

14/08/2018 : Free time to do Prayers at the Haram. PM after Ishaa we had our daily meeting with our Imam Mr Ashraf to discuss and answer any questions.

15/08/2018 : Another free day to enjoy  prayers at the Haram OR to do another Umrah- PM meeting with our Imam Mr Ashraf. Guides explained how we will move from Makkah to Mena and that sisters will go first to their allocated tent and then brothers will follow.

16/08/2018: One of our customers lost his Hajj ID during Umrah so Hajj Hamdei our guide went to our Saudi agent to replace his Hajj ID before we move from Makkah to Mena on Sunday the 19th of Aug.

PM all settled in our tents in Mena getting ready for the Great day of Arafat. Our tents in Mena have the VIP services; sofa bed, cover and pillow for every Hajj and on full board basis.

20/08/2018: Today our group arrived in Arafat early at 08:30am Ma shaa Allah and all were safe and busy doing their duaas/prayers. After Maghreb our Hajj’s started their journey to Muzdalefa by coach. Our group arrived to Muzdalifa after midnight and unfortunately other Hajjs helped themselves and stayed in  of our area which was not planned at all. After praying in small groups, Most of our Hajj’s wanted to return Mena camp and Mr Ezz went with them. Rest of the group spent some more time in Muzdalifa and then walked back to Mena with the group leaders.

After Isha prayer it was time to say goodbye to Madinah and go to the airport for our departure flight.

During checking-in a lot of our customers found out that EGYPTAIR have upgraded their seats to Business class, Lucky Hajjs !!!

31/08/2018 : Safe return alhamdulillah to London as our plane landed in Heathrow half an hour earlier than scheduled.
