Fiqh of Hajj Workshop

Hajj is one of the five major pillars of Islām performed once in a lifetime. Allāh Almighty states in the Quran, “And mandatory it is upon mankind the pilgrimage of the house for Allāh (only) for the one able to travel towards it” (Surah ale-Imran 3:97). Like with every obligatory act, knowing its essential rules to ensure the correct performance of the Hajj rites is also necessary. Often people become oblivious of the common mistakes performed by many resulting in either their Hajj as incomplete, deficient or reduced in reward. The aim of this intensive workshop is to equip the interested audience with the essential tool kit in mastering the guidance towards performing Hajj correctly and how to avoid common mistakes. It will cover both essential rules with a practical explanation. Some of the key questions addressed are as follows;

1. How can I ensure my Hajj is performed correctly?
2. How do I know whether Hajj is Fardh upon me or not?
3. What does and does not result in a penalty?
4. What essential preparations must I make before journeying to Hajj?
5. How to familiarise myself with the essential Hajj guide?
6. How can I avoid the most common mistakes in Hajj?
7. How can I exercise self-control in an overly crowded environment?
8. And much more……

Join us in this exclusive interactive workshop delivered onsite at JKN Institute to explore the above through Islamic and practical guidelines with practical case studies.
