Why pack your own bag to go for hajj?? And what  to pack.. for MEN ONLY

With Hajj coming up. Let’s look at what we need to carry with us on hajj.
One thing people always overlook is tents are divided between sexes.

Keeping this in mind. We will make 2 different post. One for men and one for women.

This one is for men.. if you are a gal. Click here.

1. Ihram outfits. Buy at least 2. One to wear on first day and second you may change at mina after returning from Arafah

2. Mandatory.. Surgical masks and nonsented sanitizer

3. Sunglasses, cap

4. broken-in rubber slippers. Last thing you need is blisters.

5. Running shoes socks for 3 day’s stoning the jamarah. Be ready for long walks.. practice in advance.

6. Pajamas, only cotton casual clothes. Extra under clothes. Bathrooms are a bit tricky.

7. Safety kit with

Band-Aids and Tissues

Vitamin c effervescent. (Must Take one 1000m every day to beat infections)

Non-scented soap and Shampoo.

Sunscreen for last 3 day’s. Toothbrush and paste,

Painkiller and Anti inflammatory to help with after walk pain

Antihistamine and Antacid

Deo stick… Works wonders as an instant fix on the ihram rash too

9. Personal phone . You will mostly use it to call your wife out of her tent.

10. Extension cord. Your phone battery won’t last more than a day. Every tent has limited sockets. Having your own cord will help have constant power.

11. Umbella… no not for rain. For sun. A battery operated fan would be optimum and water spray bottle

12. Quran, Dua (suplication) and other Islamic books

13. Always carry a water bottle in hand. You need to stay hydrated. (You can buy these locally)

14. Ziploc bags for stones picked in for stoning the jamarah. Empty Water bottle will also do. (Can be picked from Muzdalifa or mina)…(https://islamqa.info/en/34420)

15. Ear plugs. Very important Unless you are a heavy sleeper and can tolerate snoring.

16. 1 coat hanger (also to use for drying washed clothes)

17. Click here to leant how to save maps offline. Make sure you do so before you leave and Mark your tent when you reach mina. Now you know how to get back whenever you get lost.

18. A bag that fits the above stuff. Remember you will need 2 bags. One for you and one for your wife.
Finally. Don’t forget point #8. Please go back and reconfirm you didn’t overlook it…..





8. Make sure you pay attention to detail. Learn what you need to do. Ask. Investigate. Don’t follow others blindly. So why pack the above items??? 8 years experience should hold some weight.

Hajj mabroor wa makbool inshallah.
