The BIS Hajj Fellowship Program aims at imparting (1) foundational knowledge of Islamic texts and sciences related to Hajj (2) the means to apply, implement and disseminate these knowledge through practical applications. These goals are achieved in three stages: Iqra’, Tadabbar, and I’mal. Hajj fellowship will explore Fiqh (Jurisprudence), rules, practices and manners surrounding the Hajj as dictated by the Islamic teachings of the Prophet (PBUH). The Fellowship will also address the different interpretations from among Islamic scholars and Islamic Madhahib (schools of thought).

Participants will journey through different aspects of Hajj understanding, spirituality and Hajj Manasik (Rituals). Instructors and guest speakers will present their own experiences throughout the fellowship, and emphasis will be given to the transformational aspects of Hajj (before, during, and after the physical journey itself).

Learning Outcomes:

  • Perform Hajj according to the Qur’an and Sunnah with righteous companionship.
  •  Discerning between obligatory, acceptable and permissible actions during the Hajj
  • Acquire an understanding of the Fiqh of the Hajj and its objectives towards Allah and His creation
  • Utilizing the experience of the Hajj in finding ways to maintain and elevate one’sspiritual connection with Allah

Who should apply?

Muslims who made Niyat and are planning to perform Umrah or Hajj in 2020 or in the coming years.
