Pilgrimage

Asalam Alaykum, today I will be telling about taking a pilgrimage to Mecca. It is the 5th pillar of Islam. The pilgrimage is a once in a lifetime obligation if you have the physical and financial capability to carry it out. However, you can perform the pilgrimage more than once " There are clear signs in it, it is the place where Abraham stood. Anyone who enters it will be secure. Pilgrimage to the House is a duty to God for anyone who is able to undertake it. Anyone who disbelieves should remember that God is independent of all creatures."Quran, Chapter 3:97

The pilgrimage also known as hajj (which means intend to journey) brings you closer to God, it also helps you clear your sins. It is largest annual gathering of people in the world. It occurs between the 8th and the 12th (sometimes 13th) of the last month of the Islamic calendar. The date changes with the Gregorian calendar, this is because the Islamic calendar is 11 days shorter than the Gregorian calendar. 

In performing the rites of hajj, the actions of Prophet Muhammed (peace be unto him) should be followed. The hajj is also associated with Prophet Ibrahim (peace be unto him).The rites of the hajj include ihram, tawwaf and sa'ay, the first day of Hajj, the second day of hajj, the third day of hajj, the fourth day of Hajj, the fifth day of hajj and the last day at Mina. Different actions will be carried out for each of these rites.

You should go for pilgrimage if you are physically fit for it and are able to afford it, as it is obligatory for you. That is all for today, thank you for reading this article. Keep checking out my blog regularly. Cheers!

For your marketing strategy to be successful you have to truly understand the buying behaviour of your customers. Some customers buy goods based on trust and loyalty which falls into the emotional reasons. Thus, you have to build trust between your customers and yourself so they can return back to you. Trust is built when you offer good quality for reasonable prices.

Some products are bought regularly while some products are purchased seasonally. If your products fall into the seasonal category, you should only purchase them to be resold during that season. At times buyers purchase products on behalf of another individual. In that situation, you have to capture the mind of both the buyer and the actual person tha…
