The Ultimate Hajj and Umrah Product Guide
Do you know someone whose going for Hajj or Umrah this year? Are you looking for some children’s products to teach your kids about the meaning of Hajj or Umrah? Maybe you’re going for Hajj or Umrah yourself and need some tips on what to get.
To save you the time of scouring for Hajj gifts, Hajj decorations, and Hajj products, sister Farhat of the website, farhatamin.com and myself, compiled a list of our best Hajj and Umrah products as a guide just for you!
As sister Farhat is a Hajji already - alhumdulillah, and I’m not yet one (inshallah one day), I felt that her valuable advice would be super helpful in compiling this list with me. After all who should know better about the needs of Hajj than one who has already traveled on this amazing pilgrimage.
PRODUCTS FOR THE PILGRIM
1. A Hajj Bag, Backpack, or Money Belt
Sister Farhat advises having a decent bag as an essential product for a pilgrim. A cross body bag is perfect to keep valuables, documents, and essentials organized and close by. If you prefer, or travelling with kids, you may need something larger, so a sturdy backpack might be the way to go. For those who need just the bare essentials with them, a money bag might be a better option.
2. A Hajj & Umrah Guide
Sister Farhat recommends this book, as she used it when she performed her Hajj. The Hajj & Umrah Made Easy Guide is a step by step, practical, unique, and complete guide to Hajj & Umrah and includes:
An Arabic transliteration of duas.
World’s 1st Adjustable Travel Cord.
Wire bound flip format which is easily held in one hand.
Safety and health tips, travel information, and duas.
Hajj procedures explained.
Unique diagrams, Makkah map, color-coded pages.
All information according to the Qur’an and Sunnah.
3. A Pair of Comfortable Sandals
Once again, sister Farhat recommends quality sandals as an essential product for the pilgrim. She says, “I cannot over-emphasize the importance of wearing comfortable, sensible shoes when you go for Hajj, do not skimp on this! You will not regret spending more money on these and can easily slip them into your bag when you go to pray.”
4. A Hajj Outfit
I’ve heard from other Hajjis that wearing comfortable, light clothes will make your pilgrimage much easier. Therefore, finding the appropriate Hajj garb to wear that is loose, cool, and modest is another must-have and not always easy to find. Here’s two good ideas of outfits for the pilgrim.
5. A Hajj Journal
Sister Farhat advises having a Hajj journal as well. She recommends the Muslimommy Dua Journal because you can maximize saying your supplications while on Hajj and Umrah. You can do this by recording your duas before you leave for Hajj or Umrah for each aspect of your life, and for every special person you know. During your pilgrimage, you can use your journal to write your reflections as well as refer to the duas you wish to say at the appropriate times. Thank you sister Farhat for recommending one of my bestsellers! ;-)

PRODUCTS FOR KIDS TO LEARN ABOUT THE HAJJ
1. Hajj Storybooks For Kids
These Hajj storybooks for kids are great ways for your child to learn and to experience how pilgrims plan and go for Hajj. They will feel the awe of the journey of a lifetime as the characters share their experience of the pilgrimage in a storytelling.
3. Hajj Activity & Fact Books For Kids
My children enjoyed these books when they were young as some of them are coloring and activity books about the Hajj. The other is a Hajj fact book which is another enjoyable read for kids. When children learn through creativity, it helps them learn faster, and in this case, learn about the Hajj with fun!
