As many of you know, for the last 15 years we have been organizing to go for Hajj with El Madina Travel of New York. Once again this year, we are making arrangements to go with them, and plan to take close to 300 people with us, insha Allah. Many people from the Bay Area have joined us, and last year there were over 200 people from the Bay Area.
Regardless of your final choice, it is imperative that you investigate the group you plan to go with thoroughly and make your arrangements now, so that you can get the package and travel dates you need.
If you have any questions about El Madina Travel, or just in general about the Hajj, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Please note that all packages are priced from JFK, and there will be add-on charges from the city of your departure.
Though all packages are priced from JFK, we still have some seats available from SFO at no extra cost. Once the seats are no longer available, this message will be removed.
Travel dates may vary by one day according to selected flights. Package prices are based on availability. Hotel rates are subject to change without prior notice.
What's the differences between packages?
The primary difference between Deluxe and Economy package is the location of the tents in Mina. Economy package guests stay in North American tents, which are approximately 60 minute walk (one-way) from the Jamarat. Whereas, Deluxe package guests stay in the VIP tents, approximately 10 minute walk from the Jamarat. Both packages include full access to the apartment building during the days of Hajj.
Packages 2, 3, 5 and 6 also provide a walking-distance hotel stay for several days leading up to the Hajj. This is an amenity offered by El Madina Travel for the first time this year.
Please contact me for further questions.
One annual workshop will be held by Imam Tahir Anwar before Hajj on Saturday, July 21, 2018 in the Bay Area. Location to be determined. Registrations will open after Ramadan.
This workshop is open to all, regardless of which group you are traveling with. There will be a nominal fee for the workshop, which we will let you know of in the email we send to you.
