The month of Dhu al Hijjah in the Hijri (Islamic) calendar has arrived
This is the month where Muslims from each race and country will fulfil Hajj. A pilgrimage which is the duty, of every able body and those who are able to financially afford to preform once in their lifetime.
Hajj means ‘to attend a journey’ and this one involves circumnavigating the Kaaba walking between Safa and Marwah ,drink from the Zamzam Well, going to the plains of Mount Arafat to stand in vigil, spend a night in the plain of Muzdalifa, and perform a symbolic stoning of the devil. This is where the devil appeared to prevent Abraham sacrificing his son Ishmael.
Usually the number of pilgrims for Hajj would be between 2-4 million but due to Covid-19 restrictions only those in Saudi Arabia will be permitted to fulfill. Hajj is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, alongside Shahadah, Salat, Zakat and Sawm.
A 3 day global celebration of Eid al-Adha follows. The start of these celebrations will be Friday 31st July 2020.
This year we will be CLOSED on Friday 31st so we and our team can celebrate it with family.
We will REOPEN on Saturday 1st August and orders will be available to collect from 4pm.
We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this will cause and thank you for understanding.
