2 Hajj…. Is the holy spiritual journey to the house of Allah “The Kaaba” as all believers are in deep willingness to visit this holy place as Allah Almighty gave that place an advantage over any other place all over the world.

3 The first House appointed for Mankind !!
Allah Almighty Says: (Verily, the first House (of worship) appointed for mankind was that at Bakkah (Makkah), full of blessing, and a guidance for Al-'Alamin (the mankind and jinns)* In it are manifest signs (for example), the Maqam (place) of Ibrahim (Abraham); whosoever enters it, he attains security. And Hajj to the House (Ka'bah) is a duty that mankind owes to Allah, those who can afford the expenses and whoever denies Hajj then Allah stands not in need of any of the 'Alamin.) {Sûrat Al-Imrân-verse96-97}.

4 All worship are gathered in one
which is The Hajj !! Hajj includes all worship, in it there is Monotheism, prayer, fasting ,Zakat, good behavior, supplication(center of worship) , patience, contemplation, thinking in the creation of Allah , Jihad by the soul , spending money, Humility , purity and charity. Human is doing all of that while he or she is directed to Allah by a sincere heart.

5 The way to Allah!! The journey of pilgrimage is an easy way to acquire Allah’s satisfaction as the pilgrim is considered to be a guest in the house of Allah , so what do we expect from Allah the most Generous?

6 Pilgrimage is A magnificent worship
Allah Almighty ordered Muslims to perform this worship once a life as He Almighty says: (And Hajj to the House (Ka'bah) is a duty that mankind owes to Allah, those who can afford the expenses){Sûrat Al-Imrân-verse97}. So , what are the secrets behind this wonderful journey and what are the promised benefits from Allah Almighty who says: (That they may witness things that are of benefit to them){Sûrat Al-Hajj-verse 28}.Is it a great journey or just an ordinary one?

7 Phases of Hajj!! The journey of pilgrimage starts:
From the (Mikat) where the pilgrim dress the clothes of pilgrimage(Ihram) as he or she takes the intention to start this holy journey. After arrival to (Mekka) the pilgrim starts circumambulation around Kaaba (by kissing the black stone or referring to it by hand)for seven times. Pilgrim starts walking between hills (Al-Safa) and (Al-Marwah) for seven times. The pilgrim moves to (Mina) to stay the eighth day of (Dhu al-Hijjah). After that the pilgrim moves to (Arafat) to stay the entire ninth day till sunset and perform supplications to Allah Almighty. Then the pilgrim moves to (AlMuzdalifah) where he or she stay the night. After that the pilgrim moves another time to (Mina)to start (Ramy al-Jamarat) by throwing the Satan by the stones in the tenth day of Dhu al-Hijjah and he Slaughter the sacrifices and shave head for men (only a piece of hair for women). At the same day pilgrim return back to (Kaaba) to start circumambulation. The pilgrim return back again to (Mina )to throw the stones and stay there for three days (11,12,13) of (Dhu al-Hijjah). Pilgrim returns to (Kaaba)to perform (Tawaf AlWida) and drinks Zamzam water.

8 is a process for reprogramming the soul !!
Hajj is a process for reprogramming the soul !! The NLP scientists say that what makes human exhausted is the tremendous amount of problems and worries and the best way to rebalancing is to empty the accumulated negative charges. How can it be done?

9 is the shortest way to restore the balance!!
Hajj .. is the shortest way to restore the balance!! From 1400 years, religion of Islam guided us to the right way to restore our balance and to empty all accumulated negatives. We should not know what is behind orders of Allah but when we know, our faith increases…it is the magnificent worship of the Hajj.

10 Hajj is the dream of all believers!!
The journey of Hajj has many hardships and fatigue but it is the dream of all believers because of the tremendous peace of soul that pilgrim gets after pilgrimage. What is the secret behind this psychological peace of mind? the answer is simple as in that worship and if believers performed it in the right way it empty the negative charges and recharge the body with positive charges.

11 to increase livelihood!!
A method to increase livelihood!! Prophet Mohamed peace be up on him urges us to repeat hajj if possible as he says:” keep performing hajj and Umrah because both of them erase poverty and sins and the only reward for the accepted hajj by Allah is entering heaven ”{narrated by Ibn Hiban}. This journey recharge power of the body so that it makes people work harder which increase the livelihood and eliminates poverty.

12 Power of The black stone!!
The emitted power by the black stone is magnificent. Hence, getting closer to or kissing that stone gives you a huge power and you feel that immediately. Maybe because of that the prophet used to start the circumambulation around Kaaba by kissing ,touching or referring to that stone.

13 Unlimited benefits From 1400 years , Allah Almighty told us about the gained benefits from worship of Hajj as He Almighty says:(And proclaim to mankind the Hajj (pilgrimage). They will come to you on foot and on every lean camel, they will come from every deep and distant (wide) mountain highway (to perform Hajj)*That they may witness things that are of benefit to them and mention the Name of Allah on appointed days over the beast of cattle that He has provided for Then eat thereof and feed therewith the poor who have a very hard time ){Sûrat Al-Hajj-verse27-29}.

14 A method For treatment !! The hajj is a treatment for many diseases as it restore the balance of the body ,increase mental emotional and sexual activity and it is a source of power. This journey helps you to erase the past bad memories that prohibits you from performing worship in the right way so it makes you back again as if you are a born baby. Prophet Mohamed says :“ whoever performs the worship of hajj without violation the rules of hajj like making sexual relation (with wife or husband) and don’t make any sins will back from hajj exactly as a baby in the day when he or she was begotten ”

15 Why do we throw Satan by stones?
Steve Chandler one of the famous NlP scientists confirm that it is important to imagine the target which you want to achieve in your brain as it helps you to achieve that target. Hence, when we imagine that Satan is in that area and indeed the Satan is not there and when we throw him by stones, we definitely will succeed to win the battle against that Satan and we will defeat him in all battles .

16 In hajj Muslims don’t wrangle with each others
There are many bad habits in our life such as wrangling as it is a waste of time and effort and many Neuro-Linguistic Programming scientists advice us to reduce wrangling as possible. One of them is DR. Richard Carlson who says: ”don’t wrangle as it cause antagonizing with other people”. Allah Almighty says concerning this matter: (For Hajj are the months well known. If any one undertakes that duty therein, Let there be no obscenity, nor wickedness, nor wrangling in the Hajj.){Sûrat the cow-verse197}. Isn’t a clear evidence that all rules of hajj are identical with today’s advices by scientists and researchers?

17 Millions of pilgrims are moving anti clock wise around the Kaaba
Harmony with universe Millions of pilgrims are moving anti clock wise around the Kaaba Millions of stars are moving anti clock wise around the center of a galaxy Everything in this universe is moving at the same direction from left to right (Anti clock wise). Electrons around nucleus, planets around sun, stars around galaxy and pilgrims around the Kaaba, all of those are moving in the same direction from left to right. So that all universe are in harmony with each others.

18 seven Secrets of number
Allah Almighty has created seven heavens and of the earth the like thereof (seven), days of the week are seven, layers of the atom are seven ,number of doors of hell are seven and pilgrims are circumambulating seven times around Kaaba. Also the word Qiblah (prayer direction) was repeated seven times in Qur’an…….. Glory to Allah!!!!

19 The word Qiblah was repeated seven times the same as number of circumambulation around kaaba and also the same as number of rounds between Al-Safa and Al-Marwah…Glory to Allah!! ! 1.(The fools (pagans, hypocrites, and Jews) among the people will say, "What has turned them (Muslims) from their Qiblah [prayer direction (towards Jerusalem)] to which they were used to face in prayer."){Sûrat Al-Baqarah-verse142}. 2.(And We made the Qiblah which you used to face, only to test those who followed the Messenger){Sûrat Al-Baqarah-verse143}. 3.(Surely, We shall turn you to a Qiblah that shall please you.){Sûrat Al-Baqarah-verse144}. 4.(And even if you were to bring to the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) all the Ayat (proofs, evidences ,etc.), they would not follow your Qiblah){Sûrat Al-Baqarah-verse145}. 5.(nor are you going to follow their Qiblah){Sûrat Al-Baqarah-verse145}. 6.(And they will not follow each other's Qiblah){Sûrat Al-Baqarah- verse145}. 7.(and make your dwellings Qiblah){Sûrat Yûnus-verse 87}.

20 Walking is the best sport
In a published study by Harvard university , researchers confirmed that walking in a moderate speed (4-5 K/H)reduce the probability of infection by heart diseases by about 40%for both men and women. Also the study confirmed that walking enhance breathing system, immune system , eliminates depression, prevent from Osteoporosis ,reduce diabetic and control overweight of people.

21 heart diseases and diabetic!!
Hajj is a cure for heart diseases and diabetic!! Scientists confirm that walking helps in curing many chronic diseases and it is the base in Geriatrics and prolonging life!!! Physicians believe that long walking helps in curing colon cancer,treatment of back pains and increase concentration. Allah says about Hajj:(That they may witness things that are of benefit to them.){Sûrat Al-Hajj-verse 28}. This verse was descended in a time when people in Europe were believing that Hajj is a kind of torment for people and there is no gained benefit from it.

22 ARAFAT… Place of contemplation !!
Scientists confirm that contemplation is a cure for worries and they consider it as a magnificent strategy to reorganize the mechanism of the body to eliminate all psychological disorders. Contemplation helps body to sleep well and to enhance the ability of creativity and problem solving. Also contemplation increases the process of emitting some chemical matters in brain that prolong life. People in Arafat stand and sit for hours while contemplating and supplicating to Allah.

23 The power of Zamzam !!! The well of Zamzam is the oldest well in the world. Scientifically, it was proved that the water of Zamzam is free from viruses or bacteria and also it was proved that this water heals from Incurable diseases and there are many cases of people who were ill by diseases and medicine was unable to treat them but when they came for Hajj or Umrah with a sincere intention and after drinking from Zamzam and with supplication to Allah , He Almighty treated them from these diseases.

24 a treatment for diseases
Zamzam is a treatment for diseases Zamzam water is rich with minerals and it is alkalinity water so it reduce stomach’s Acidity and it can heal many diseases especially rheumatic pains. It is worth to remind you that millions of people drinks from this well from hundreds of years, but water did not run out. Isn’t a miracle?!

25 The willpower!!! DR/ Chandler one of the NLP scientists say that you must train your will the same as you train your muscles. In the holy journey of Hajj there are many life experiments as it contains travel, abstraction form all pleasures of life, risks caused by crowed ,Austerity , asceticism and humiliation for Allah Almighty.

26 In Hajj you gets a lot of learning
Hajj is a good practical lesson for many things and also to learn new things. Dr. Murphy one of the NLP scientists says "try to learn a new thing every day so that you will always have an active brain ” In Hajj ,the pilgrim learns discipline concerning the appointments as he or she must be at the right time to perform all ceremonies of the Hajj.

27 Change…!! Journey of Hajj is an effective way to change the surrounded environment as pollution in these days cause many diseases such as cancer and Asthma ,but this holy journey makes people to breath pure air and to purify their lungs.

28 More energy….!! People from different nationalities are meeting in one place for one purpose which is performing this great worship and obeying Allah’s order in all phases of Hajj. All of that provides them by great energy which is resulted from the spiritual atmosphere and the peaceful attitude of people(no wrangling in Hajj) as we believe that this huge group of people provides each other by a tremendous energy. But how does it happen? Prophet Mohamed peace be upon him gives us a nice example about that as he says” the like of the good friend and the bad one as the one who holds perfume and the one who blow in fire to purify iron from blots as when you sit beside the first one you may buy from him a perfume or the good smell may stick on you and the other one may burn your clothes or emits bad smell”{Narrated by Al Asharri}.

29 The best deeds….!!! “One of the prophet’s companions asked him: what is the best deeds? Then the prophet answered: belief in Allah, Jihaad for the sake of Allah and an accepted Hajj.” [narrated by Al- bukhari]. Performing ceremonies of Hajj in an appropriate way provide the believer with a magnificent power which is resulted from circumambulation around Kaaba, long walking between Al Saffa and Al Marwa , prayers, throwing Satan by stones, stand in Arafat and move between many places.

30 Heaven is the reward All people who performed that great worship confirm that this holy journey renewed their spiritual activity and increased morals. What a great benefits!!!! The prophet peace be upon him says about this worship: “and the only reward for the accepted hajj by Allah is entering the heaven” [narrated by Al- bukhari].
