ZUL HIJJAH 1431 (Poem)

It is now the month of Zul Hijjah

All the Pilgrims gather in Makkah

Chanting “ Labaik Allahumma Labaik”

We are here for your sake

Please accept our Hajj and forgive our sins

We are present, kings, commoners, Black, White Fat and thin

From Makkah to Mina, Arafaat and then to Muzdalifah we go

The journey is long, hot, and slow

At Arafaat we ask for forgiveness

Forgive us Oh Allah Our Lord Our Highness

After all the rituals of Hajj we head for home

Taking with us the memories of the Kaaba and the green dome.

Oh Allah cleanse our body and soul and makes it pure.

You will accept our hajj I am sure! (S.H.MUSTHAPHA)


We have entered the blessed month if ZUL-HIJJAH the month in which Hajj (one of the 5 pillars of Islam) is performed in the month in which we Celebrate EID UL ADHA . Even though we may not be one of those who are Performing Hajj this year, we should make it a priority to take time from our busy lives and make extra Ibaalat in this month. According to Hadrat Abu Hurrayrah (R.A), the messenger of Allah (S.A.W) said, “There is not a period when it is most dear to Allah that a man worship Him than the 10 Days of ZUL HIJJAH when each day long fast is equivalent to fasting of a year and keeping vigil during each night is like prayers in Lailatul Qadr”(Tirmizi,ibn Majah)
