Article: How to choose a Hajj company

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

One of the complaints that I hear about most from the Hajjis is how their Hajj company messed up. [No, I can’t type it out. The list is too long.]

Many people decide on the Hajj company at the last possible minute which is probably why they end up getting some bad surprises.

Here’s an interesting document from Al-Hidaayah (the book publishers) about how to choose a Hajj company. It seems to cover just about all the complaints I’ve come across.
