What should I pack for Hajj

Are you going on hajj for the first time and don’t know how to pack light and right? Packing is something that we can’t neglect at all, especially in hajj. If you don’t have done it in the right way, there are high chances you will not amass the spirituality of pilgrimage.

Because advanced planning is the key to unlocking any travel destination lock. A combination of packing and preparation is that key. Packing here means focusing on the essential things on your Hajj journey, which will be made your entire trip ease and safer. And preparation means focusing on preparing oneself for worship.

Just wait a minute. If you do not know the correct method of Hajj, read “What is Hajj and its method” to complete your annual pilgrimage.

As we know, 5 aspects of Islam are faith (Allah is one and Muhammad is the last prophet), five daily prayers, fasting in Ramadan, zakat (charity) and Hajj. Leaving any aspect of Islam can lead us to hell. Nobody will like it for oneself. Therefore, try to perform your last aspect of Islam only with the necessary packaging. So that your limited and precious time is not wasted in buying anything there. Bookmark this page because it will help greatly in your packing.

Here I have categorized your packing list to make it easier.
