Tazkiya

Sh. Omar Suleiman
Sh. Tahir Wyatt
Dr. Farhan Abdul Azeez
Ust. Majed Mahmoud

We have created a unique, hybrid VIP experience led by an amazing group of scholars – Sh. Omar Suleiman, Dr. Tahir Wyatt, Dr. Farhan Abdul Azeez and Ustadh Majed Mahmoud. The Tazkiya package is designed to give you the best experience of Hajj. Limited spaces available.

HIGHLIGHTS:

Express: Our entire package is 2 weeks maximum allowing for you to take the minimal amount of time off to participate.

Hybrid VIP: This unique package gives you the best of North American tents and VIP tents. With one night in the North American tents on 8th DH, we eliminate 3+ hours of lines for the trains. On 10th and 11th DH, we use the VIP tents, in front of the Jamarat, which allow for the most convenience.

Knowledge and Beneficial Reminders: We will have intense daily lectures with our scholars to make it a learning and transformative experience. This is our key feature. Our scholars are accessible throughout and prioritize your learning and preparation for each step of the trip.

Madinah Without The Crowds: This package prioritizes spirituality without forsaking comfort. In Madinah, we’ve chosen the days of 4-7 of Dhul Hijjah in which it is least crowded to allow for time in the Rawdah, as well as multiple tours of the most important sites with our scholars to relive the moments the Prophet (saw) lived with his companions.

Hajj Convenience: We then leave for Makkah right for Hajj in which we will have our own building near the Jamarat in Shisha as well as access to the VIP tents during the 10-12 of Dhul Hijjah where we will have multiple lectures and guidance throughout the days of Hajj without any long walks.

Service Trip Component: This portion of the trip has limited spots. Attendees will accompany Sh. Omar Suleiman to Syrian and Palestinian refugee camps in Jordan on a service trip with a chance to meaningfully impact their lives. This is a trip that Sh. Omar annually does with Helping Hand which has taken multiple youth groups on this journey. By serving the refugees, you will become better acquainted with their situation, have a chance to do direct Sadaqa, and carry them in your duas with you to Hajj.
