Going for Hajj or umrah? Here are some products to always be prepared.

must-have islamic products for hajj and umrah

All physically capable Muslims are obligated to do the Hajj at least once in their lifetimes because it is one of the five pillars of Islam. The Hajj is viewed as an opportunity to repent of the past and begin anew. When returning from the Hajj, some women don the Islamic "hijab", a head covering, in an effort to strengthen their faith.

Despite the physical demands of the Hajj, many pilgrims insist on travelling the routes while using canes or crutches. Sometime charity or local authorities provide financial assistance to those who cannot afford the Hajj. Others risk their entire lives to travel. Some even go thousands of kilometers on foot, taking months to reach Saudi Arabia.

On the importance of Hajj, Allah SWT mentions in the Quran, 

“When We made the House [i.e., the Ka’baah] a place of return for the people and [a place of] security. And take, [O believers], from the standing place of Abraham a place of prayer. And We charged Abraham and Ishmael, [saying], ‘Purify My House for those who perform tawaf and those who are staying [there] for worship and those who bow and prostrate [in prayer].”
(Qur’an 2:125)

In another place, the Holy Quran states the following about the importance of Hajj: 

“Verily, the first House (of worship) appointed for mankind was that at Bakkah (Makkah), full of blessing, and guidance for Al-‘Alamin (the mankind and jinns). In it are manifest signs (for example), the Maqam (place) of Ibrahim (Abraham); whosoever enters it, he attains security. And Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah) to the House (Kaaba) is a duty that mankind owes to Allah, those who can afford the expenses (for one’s conveyance, provision, and residence); and whoever disbelieves [i.e. denies pilgrimage to Makkah), then he is a disbeliever of Allah], then Allah stands not in need of any of the ‘Alamin (mankind and jinns).” 
(Surah Al-Imran, 96-97)

Given the fact that Hajj has been given the utmost importance in Islam, it is of utmost importance that people go over there prepared. The entire point of Hajj is to strengthen your faith. It is to strive in the way of Allah and while that comes with a fair bit of hardship – as it should – it also comes with a huge reward. And the fact of the matter is that one should try to minimize the hardship as much as they can.

ABDEEZ has the solution for all Muslims who are going to make the pilgrimage to the Holy city.

The Wudhu Socks

First and foremost, ABDEEZ provides The Wudhu socks, which are essentially socks that one can wear while performing wudhu. This product is 100% Shari’ah compliant and is made from non-leather, waterproof, breathable, and odor-resistant materials. These socks are a must-have on long roads you travel on for Hajj or during the lesser pilgrimage – the umrah. Owing to the comfort of The Wudhu Socks, they are also suitable for elders that get discomforted with cold water. Muslims with infirmities also benefit tremendously by using The Wudhu Socks.

ABDEEZ Prayer Mats

Apart from The Wudhu socks, ABDEEZ also provides various types of prayer mats, including one which has a backrest and is foldable. ABDEEZ also provides portable prayer mats, complete with a compass, weights to hold the prayer mat in place, and a pouch that fits in your pocket. The portable prayer mat also comes with a guide that will help you find the qiblah anywhere you are.
