Our Partnership with Al Bait Guests

As you may be aware, important changes have been made to the way Hajj is organised for Australian, New Zealand and other Western countries pilgrims.  The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah has appointed a number of local companies in Saudi Arabia that will be authorised to organise Hajj for pilgrims travelling from these countries. Prospective pilgrims will have to book a package supplied by one of the authorised companies via an online portal (Nusuk). Therefore, packages will not be sold by any Australian company directly nor will payments be collected by them.

To enhance the experience of the pilgrims, provide a greater level of support and to address some of the challenges faced by pilgrims in the past, Australian companies will be permitted to work with one of the authorised Saudi companies. Their role will primarily be to promote packages and to provide support to the pilgrims including being guides.  

Last year we partnered with one of the authorised Saudi Hajj providers, Al-Bait Guests, as strategic partners, and we are delighted to say that Hajj 2023 was a huge success, Alhumdulillah! We are intending to build on last year’s success and we are confident that Hajj 2024 will not only be enjoyable and memorable but also deeply spiritually uplifting.  

Please note that the registration process for Hajj 2024 via Nusuk is now open. We recommend that you start this process if you intend on performing Hajj in 2024. The link to register is https://hajj.nusuk.sa/

We have also begun taking expressions of interest in order to help us plan and facilitate Hajj 2024. To register please visit https://bit.ly/Hajj2024

To stay informed about the latest updates, including new developments, launch dates, and other essential information, we encourage you to register your interest at your earliest convenience and subscribe to the Telegram channel.

Thank you for entrusting us with this sacred journey, and we look forward to facilitating an extraordinary Hajj experience for all.

One of the most beautiful moments imaginable.

The site of the Kaabah after 40 km of walking from Muzdalifah via the first day of stoning.

After tawaf and Sa'i, the hujjaj are able to take off their ihram clothing and shave their heads.

An incredible feeling of accomplishment, gratitude and relief at three immense days of rituals and emotions.

The 1st of 3 days (or 4!) on which stoning happens at the jamarat. An incredibly important emulation of our father Ibrahim (AS)

#Madinah #arafah #Makkah #Hajj2024
An incredible day of exertion and effort ahead of the Hujjaj today, at the end of which they can shave their heads. The highlight is seeing the ka'bah once again! What a sight it is after these days of effort. An amazing day

#Makkah #arafah #Madinah
The 40 kilometre day is here!

The walk from Muzdalifah to Makkah commences, via the first day of stoning at the Jamarat.

A long walk ahead of them but one of the most memorable ones!

Labbayk Allahumma labbayk!

 #makkah #Hajj2024 #Madinah
Fajr prayer at Muzdalifah before the hujjaj depart for the first stoning at Mina and onto Makkah for the Tawaf and cutting of their hair ❤️ 

A huge journey on foot but a most satisfying one.
