Haji and ‘Umrah is one of religious obligations on all Muslims but it is only wishes and dreams for almost all of our Da’ees and new coverts in Ethiopia and Kenya. None of our twenty four Islamic teachers in Ethiopia and Kenya ever made to Haji or ‘Umrah and none of them are still able to undertake that once in a life times’ journey unless someone like you give them that chance.
We can only imagine what impact making Haji and ‘Umrah would have on them and their da’wah efforts. So many community leaders and elders accepted Islam at our hand in the last three years and they never had a chance to make this noble journey.
Again, we can only imagine what it would be like for these elders and community leaders to feel the experiences of this blessed journey and come back and share with their respective communities of new converts.
The cost of Haji from Ethiopia and Kenya is about three thousand US dollars and may be about half of that amount for ‘Umrah. We are increasingly receiving the question of when we will be getting help to make Haji and ‘Umrah as numbers of convert’s increase and we know that these programs would have very positive effects on our da’wah efforts in these regions and greatly appreciated by beneficiaries.
