Important Hajj 2022 Update:

Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah

Dear Respected Brothers & Sisters,

The Saudi Ministry of Hajj and Umrah announced that it has authorized one million pilgrims, both international and domestic, to perform Hajj this year (2022/1443H). Alhamdulillah! 

We are also grateful to the Saudi Government for their incredible effort in successfully handling the Covid-19 pandemic and creating a safe and spiritual environment that has enabled the pilgrimage to be authorized for one million pilgrims.

How many pilgrims allowed from Canada?

While the overall number of pilgrims has been announced, we do not yet know the number of pilgrims that will be allowed from Canada and more specifically, the number of pilgrims that Ikhlas will be authorized for Hajj 2022. It appears, and we assume that we will be able to take 50% of the pilgrims from pre-pandemic numbers.  We hope to get clarity on this very soon, InshaAllah.

Any age restrictions?

The Saudi Ministry of Hajj also announced that Hajj will be open to pilgrims under the age of 65 years who have received the full doses of approved Covid-19 vaccines. 

In addition, all international pilgrims will be required to prove a negative PCR Test result from test performed within 72 hours of departing for Saudi Arabia. 

The Ministry of Hajj and Umrah also requires that all pilgrims must follow health instructions and comply with all precautionary measures to preserve their health and safety while performing the Hajj rituals.

What’s Next?

Respected brothers & sisters, we are in the process of getting clarification on the number of pilgrims allowed for Hajj as well as developing Hajj packages to comply with the Hajj instructions, requirements and restrictions. You have been patient thus far, and we ask that in this blessed month of Ramadan, you exercise patience for a little bit longer until we have a full picture and are able to offer Hajj packages for sale based on registration date / deposit received priority. We will get this information to you as soon as possible, InshaAllah.

Thank you for your understanding. May Allah grant us ease and help us all to gain His pleasure.
