Al Hajjul Akbar 2014

It is generally presumed that Hajj performed on a Friday is called “Hajj Akbar” and that it is a more rewarding Hajj as compared to the Hajj performed on any other day of the week.

The term used in the Glorious Quran “Al Hajjul-Akbar” does not mean a Hajj performed on a Friday, as is generally alleged by the people. The Quran has used this term for the Hajj performed by the Muslims under the supervision of Abu Bakr (r.a.) in the year 9 A.H., one year prior to the last Hajj of Propher Muhammed (s.a.w.). This Hajjul-Akbar (in 9A.H.) was not even performed on a Friday, yet the Quraan refers to it as “Al Hajjul-Akbar”. It is therefore evident from the above that this term has no relevance to the Hajj performed on a Friday.

The correct meaning of the term, as explained by a large number of the commentators of the Glorious Qur’aan is that, the UMRAH was generally called “Al Hajjul-Asghar” (the minor Hajj). In order to distinguish Umrah from Hajj, the latter (i.e. HAJJ) was named “Al Hajjul Akbar” (the greater Hajj). Therefore, every Hajj is a “Al Hajjul-Akbar” whether it is performed on a Friday or another day.

But if the 9th of Zul Hijjah falls on a Friday, it is, indeed, good fortune as it will enhance the dignity of the Hajj. Is is narrated that the Hajj which takes place on a Friday carries the reward equivalent to seventy Hajj. Friday is Eid for Muslims and Arafah is also Eid day. If two Eids fall on one day it is blessing upon blessing.

Once a jew said to Ibni Abbaas (r.a.) that if the Quranic verse: “Al-yavma Akmaltu Lakum Deenakum wa Atmamtu Alaikum Ne’matee wa Radeetu Lakumul Islaama Deenaa” (I have, this day, perfected your religion for you and completed My favour upon you and have chosen Islaam as religion for you) had been sent down for us, we would have celebrated Eid on that day. Ibni Abbaas told the jew that two Eids were combined on the day this verse descended i.e. Jumu’ah and ‘Arafah. So we did not need to celebrate Eid on that day. Friday and ‘Arafah (9th of Zul Hijjah) are the days of Eid for believers and the day the Quranic verse in question was sent down was Friday as well as ‘Arafah.

We as FATIH HAJJ see every Hajj as HAJJ AKBAR and have a mission to serve the guests of ALLAH (s.w.t) the Hujjaj the best we can, 2014 Hajj falls on a Friday, join us and lets get the reward together, please visit our website for the 2014 Hajj Packages .

Fatih Hajj Umrah packages
Pilgrimage (Hajj) to Mecca has a special significance in Islam. Mecca is the holy city where the first house of worship on earth The KABE is located and also where the last meseenger of Allah (s.w.t.) Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) was born. It is obligatory for all able Muslims from all over the world to perform Hajj once in their lifetime, which takes place annually, from the 8th to the 12th of the last month of the Islamic lunar calendar. Besides Hajj, there is also another important pilgrimage to Mecca, Umrah. Umrah can be performed at any time of the year. In Arabic, the name of the pilgrimage means “to visit a populated place” while in Sharia (the moral and religious law of Islam) it refers to circling the Kaaba seven times in a counter-clockwise direction, a performance named Tawaf.
In the Islamic world, the Umrah is referred to as “the minor pilgrimage”, whereas the Haj is considered “the major pilgrimage”. The main difference between these two pilgrimages is that the Umrah is not obligatory, while the Haj is.

In order to perform the two pilgrimages to Mecca and the visit to Medine where the prophet is, Muslims around the world must use travel agencies which have come up with multiple packages and options for Umrah and Hajj. For example, you can choose a Hajj package from FATIH HAJJ for 2014 Hajj  starting at $6,250.00,with all major expenses included. Usually, a Hajj package  includes the Hajj Visa, trip airfare, accommodation in Mecca and Medina, breakfast and dinner, the fees for visits to historic sites in Mecca and Medina and others.

In case you want to perform Umrah, the procedures are much simpler than in Hajj, advantage of packages for Umrah is that they can be bought at any time of the year, during the season you like the most. FATIH HAJJ offers Umrah packages for the 2014 UMRAH season starting at only $250.00, the prices for such packages vary a lot, according to the season of the pilgrimage, the type of accommodation preferred, number of travelers and the number of facilities included. All the Muslims who live in the United States and want to perform Umrah should check out our 2014 Umrah packages at or contact us so we can custom design a package for you.


2015 Hajj Packages from Fatih Hajj

New York – Travelling to Mecca, is something every able Muslim must do at least once in a lifetime. Your gender, age, or social status does not matter in a holy place like this. Going there and experiencing what millions of believers have is remarkable, imagine how breathtaking it is to participate in the annual Hajj with millions of other believers from all over the globe. And because the only thing you should focus on while in Mecca and Medina is praying, all you have to do is choose FATIH HAJJ on this sacred journey “journey of your life” and then you can just focus and what really matters.
Shehadeh, Salah, Zakat, Fasting and Hajj are the five pillars of the Islam. The first one stands for testifying, while the second pillar is a reminder of the main purpose of humankind: worshiping the true Creator of all things 5 times a day. Zakat is the mandatory charity. Fasting is the pillar of abstention for the purpose of developing patience and belief for the pleasure of Allah (s.w.t.). And the last one, Hajj, is the spiritual quest, the pilgrimage to Mecca that should be done at least once in a lifetime by all able Muslims. This major religious event takes place every year from the 8th to 12th of Dhu al-Hijjah, which is the 12th month of the Islamic calendar. Because this calendar is about 10 days shorter than the Gregorian one, the date changes every year.
Even though it is associated with Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.)  pilgrimage is actually originating from the time of Prophet Ibraheem (a.s.). No matter the nationality or the language they speak, millions of people gather every year in Mecca to perform Hajj.
