Stop Hajj Agent Profiteering

CAMPAIGN TO STOP HAJJ AGENTS RIPPING US OFF

For years many of the 'agents' who take us for Hajj and Umrah have been taking advantage of our uncertainty and apprehension. But now it's time to stop them from profiteering from us. Many people have to save for years if not a lifetime to go on this once in a lifetime journey, and yet the agents just seem to want to squeeze us for more and more.

This year in particular, even though the dates for Hajj fall outside the peak Christmas travel period, most operators are charging over £800 per flight. Yes, that's over £800 of our hard earned money for flights which they have most certainly blocked off months in advance when the prices were quoted at £450 or similar for the same airline earlier in the summer. The Hajj operators know how many people they will be taking, they know when they will be taking them, and it just seems very strange that they all quote the same fares.

We are not against people making a profit but what we do stand against is profiteering at the expense of poor Muslims who are in a vulnerable position. We are looking for people to support our campaign by providing details of the extortionate airfares they have been quoted together with dates of travel and airline. The information will be collated and examined and then referred for investigation by the appropriate authorities. If you are a member of your own e-group feel free to pass this information amongst your friends. If we do not take a stand now the prices will keep going up higher and higher until many are unable to make the Hajj.

Understand Qur’an the Easy Way

// September 25th, 2008 // 4 Comments » // Blog

This was worth breaking the hiatus for…

The Understand Qur'an course has been around for a while… but now level 1 is available in a easily-accessible, browser-based, flash version, māshā’Allāh.

Summary of objectives:

  • Learn 100 Arabic words that are repeated around 40,000 times in the Qur'an.
  • The Qur'an consists of approximately 78,000 words.
  • Thus you are learning 50% of the Qur'an!

I've been meaning to take this FREE course for so long, and now I really have no excuse! I pray that you join me in this learning journey. Maybe we can travel together?

Nights of Power: Short Tales of Inspiration

The best stories will win their authors amazing prizes, māshā’Allāh (seriously, I didn't know we could afford such things, else I'd ask for a raise… oh wait, I don't get paid. *Dangerous ideas begin to form*).
