The Hajj: The Greatest Journey On Earth

We wish to give someone an experience of a lifetime

T.A.A.P. Foundation is pleased to announce that on 1st Dhu Al-Hijjah 1438 (23 August 2017 to 1 October 2017), we assisted Maqbool Pathan in fulfilling his lifetime dream to go on this incredible journey on earth called Hajj.

Hajjee Maqbool is 67 years old man from a remote village in the State of Maharashtra in India. He was 2017 selected to go on this journey; We hope to increase this to 3 – 5 for 2018.

In Shaa Allah

The following year Hajj 1439 (12 August 2018), we aim to continue to assist and make a positive lasting difference in the lives of disadvantaged, neglected, and forgotten people who have an opportunity to go on this journey.

The Greatest Journeys on Earth

Hajj – the great pilgrimage to Makkah – is a journey that every Muslim, with the means to, must make before they die. Millions of Muslims undertake the profound and sacred journey of Hajj every year. Muslims undertaking the deep and sacred Hajj journey is Islam’s fifth and final pillar.

On the first day of Hajj, the Muslim pilgrimage to Makkah and their fellow pilgrims must leave Mecca and head for Mina in the Saudi Arabian desert.

For the three million plus pilgrims, this is the most emotional and powerful day of the Hajj. After sunrise, the pilgrims head to the Plains of Arafat to spend the day praying and asking God for forgiveness.

The pilgrims have spent a cold night out in the open in the desert at a place called Muzdalifah, between Arafat and Mina.

Today the pilgrims are required to throw tiny pebbles at a series of stone pillars to symbolise casting out the devil.

On the final day of Hajj, Hajjees leave the tented desert city of Mina and return to Makkah.

We are involved in many projects, which include providing housing, water, food, and education to rural villages in India, Africa, and Palestine.

We greatly rely on donations to help these underprivileged people. Your donations will go a long way to assisting them to lead better lives. To join our cause
