ABOUT HAJJ WITH AE
Many “islamic holidays”, “spiritual breaks” and of course pilgrimages have scholars that accompany them to give talks and lectures to the pilgrims, but few will have a comprehensive life-changing experience like when led by a guide such as Sheikh Abu Eesa.
The difference is this: for the Sheikh, all of these trips and getaways are a means to an end. That end, is your self-development, your relationship with Allah being perfected, and the direction for yourself and your family as you navigate the challenges of life becoming clear and focused. Mentoring and teaching people is what Sheikh Abu Eesa does full time, and these trips abroad allow deep and close relationships to be developed allowing you on your return to continue studying and improving yourself sustainably for many years to come with the Sheikh acting as your private Murabbi every day of that journey.
The “AE Tarbiyyah Program” was started after the Sheikh’s experiences taking pilgrims to Hajj in the late 90s and by 2004 it became formalised and continues to evolve and improve every year, helping to prepare attendees months in advance of their journey and then giving them the very best combination of a holiday, ibadah, spiritual development and fun whilst they are away, and then close mentoring and support every day whenever needed upon their return. Although this may sound fanciful and unrealistic, the many thousands who are still benefitting from these experiences today who are still studying and developing pay more than enough testament to this, but do not just take our word for it: you can view some of what happens in these programs captured on our Youtube channel and more recently our Instagram page, but more importantly please read the reviews and feedback of attendees directly on Facebook or the reviews on our site here or personal testimonials here!
The program is tweaked each time to match the logistics and dynamics of that particular location thereby maximising the best experience possible using the natural strengths and unique aspects of that destination. The Hajj experience with our partners Al Bait Guests is clearly our most famous, popular and over-subscribed program. Our Umrah program is our most oft-requested and most detailed. Our 3 Sacred Cities and Aqsa only programs are the Sheikh’s personal favourites. And our cultural destination programs are our latest addition allowing people to leverage off the natural beauty, history and joy of holidaying in our beloved Muslim hotspots such as Turkiye, Bosnia, Egypt, Islamic Spain, Morocco and the Far East, but maximising their experience with a complete development program with the Sheikh. The true bonus to all the above is that every one of these programs is administered by the industry leader Dar El Salam Travels.
We are incredibly proud of our team and what they bring to these programs; approximately 95% of our attendees come through recommendations and we do reserve the right to restrict our pilgrims successful applications to ensure the very best group dynamic. By the permission of Allah, we think Hajj with AE is the perfect combination of creating ease for your ibadah and allowing you to focus on it, flights with quality airlines, 5-star hotels, very reasonable prices and the best in religious and practical guidance at a time where we all need it more than ever before.
“I would recommend Sh. Abu Eesa’s hajj package to anyone who wants to get a 5 star Hajj experience without the 5 star price!”
“Alhamdulillah. Shaykh AE was always on hand from start to end, with us every step of the way, from group trips to the Haramayn to a long night in Muzdalifah. The classes that the Shaykh put on were brilliant to help us understand what we are doing and why we are doing it, the experience was massively different to groups that seemed to be following their leaders like sheep.”
“Sheikh looked after our group very well making himself available at all times (to both brothers and sisters), leading the group through the Umrah and Hajj rituals and spending countless hours answering questions on coach rides, in class and on the WhatsApp group that was set up.”
“I had watched YouTube videos and read books, but what made my knowledge a reality was our helpful guide shaykh abu eesa! When it’s your first time you have a million and one questions and alhamdulillah for the shaykh for having so much patience. He kept us motivated and encouraged throughout our journey and provided us with his usual AE comic relief when things got tough.”
“My hajj with Abu Eesa was AMAZING! It was my 2nd time going for hajj as an adult, and comparing my 1st hajj with a full 5-star package, this was a fraction of the cost and ended up being a way better spiritual experience – may Allah accept it!”
“The whole experience of Hajj is incredible however hajj with Sheikh Abu Eesa is the next level! Our Sheikh is mashAllah amazing. Sheikh explains everything to you all at the right time. As cheesy as it sounds if I could do hajj every year I would no doubt choose to do hajj with AE hands down!”
“My wife was full of questions and I was full of awe at AE’s constant patience at answering everything. Didn’t think hajj could feel like a party but AE’s humour kept us constantly entertained. But once we got back to camp the humour stopped and it was hardcore ibada time boot camp style so it was a good balance Alhamdulillah. Looking forward to doing it again with you sheikh!”
