3 IntroductionIn the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. By the grace of the Almighty Allah (SWT), we indeed have been blessed with the honour of compiling this booklet for the benefit of those going to Umrah, Hajj and/or Ziyarat of the Fourteen Masoomeen A.S. Our first calling for Hajj was in 1983 and since then, we have been invited back for Hajj and Hajj Umrah over 17 times over the past sixteen (16) years. We have also had the pleasure of serving thousands of Momineen and Mominaat, including residents of Canada United States, Jamaica, Britain, Australia, Sweden and Germany. This booklet was designed to provide you with some insight and clarification as you embark on your spiritual journey. We sincerely hope this booklet proves to be useful and we ask that you pass it on to others who, Inshallah, will be fortunate enough to go also. We are planning, Inshallah, to reproduce the booklet periodically so you are requested to advise us of any errors and omissions.
