HAJJ is NOT Transferable

NO Hajj in place of others who are Dead or Alive
Sending or taking your dependents for Hajj is also your responsibility
You will get reward of what you yourself used to do. (Al_Quraan_036.054, 045.028)
Every Hajj is Hajj-e-Akbar and every Umrah is Hajj-e-Asghar (Ref: Al_Quraan_009:003)
Hajj may not be accepted if one is involved in cheating, steeling or robbing etc.
Hajj may not be accepted if one is found arguing, fighting etc.
Women MUST take extra-care and must not be angering on their husband
Husband & Wife MUST respect each other with true love
“Labbayk Allahumma Labbayk. Labbayk La shareeka Laka Labbayk. Innal hamda Wan ni’mata Laka wal mulk. La shareeka lak.”
I am at Your service O Lord, here I am. Here I am. There is no partner
to You. Here I am. Truly, all praise and favour is Yours, as well as all
Domin-ion. There is no partner to You.”
Helping the NEEDY is more IMPORTANT than helping others to perform the HAJJ:
It is found that people are collecting Funds to help Huffaaz and Ulemaa to perform Hajj. Remember Hajj is Fard on those who can afford in his/her lifetime with his/her own Halaal income. It is far better to help the needy who are starving around the world.
Give Donations Open and Hidden as well:
If you declare your charities, it is well, but if you hide it and give it to the poor, it will be better for you, and will atone for some of your ill-deeds. Allah is Informed of what you do. (Al_Quraan_002:271)
Those who can find the needy among their relatives or friends near they live, they can easily give charities hiddenly. BUTfor those who are living abroad they need a bridge between
them and their relatives or friends, which will be openly.This way the
bridge between them and their needy will work fine. If there is some
problem among our system we need to fix it by having a bypass surgery.
Bridge for the Needy:
The Charities are only for the poor and the needy, and those who collect them (Bridge between the Needy and the rich person),
and those whose hearts are to be reconciled, and to free the captives
and the debtors, and for the cause of Allah, and (for) the wayfarer; a
duty imposed by Allah. Allah is Knower, Wise. (Al_Quraan_009:060)
Now a days life
is getting more and more difficult, competitions are a lot more than
before and many people may not get enough time to go to the needy by
themselves, specially those who are working abroad, we need a bridge between them. When there is some problem with heart Doctor fixed them by doing bypass surgery,
similarly if our family bridge doesn't work then we need to fix the
bridge or made another bypass surgery. We need to work together to help
our relatives and friends with deep heart and in an organized way. Also to send ten peoples 50 Dollars each separately Bank may charge for this transaction up to 50 dollars each, and you may end up with paying 500 dollars to bank. BUT if
you are organized, you can reduce this transaction charges to one and
send to one place the Bridge and the Bridge person will give those money
to all the needy and this way you may help the needy most. It is time to make a bridge for the needy among our relatives and friends.
Give Donations to the poor who are suffering in the cause of Allah as well:
are) for the poor who are suffering in the cause of Allah, who cannot
travel in the land (for trade). The unthinking man accounts them wealthy
because of their restraint. They shall know them by their mark: They do
not beg of men with importunity. And whatsoever good thing you spend,
lo! Allah knows it. (Al_Quraan_002:273)
Hajj may not be accepted if your Salaat is not accepted and Your Salaat
may not be accepted if your Zakaat or Sadaqah is not accepted:Also the Zakaat and the Sadaqah are an essention part of the Salaat, since neglecting the Zakaat and the Sadaqah is like neglecting the Salaat, according to the following ayaats.
you know who really rejects the faith? That is the one who mistreats
the orphans. And does not encourages the feeding of the poor. So woe to
the praying ones. Who are totally neglectful of their prayers. Those who do (good) only to show off. But refuse (to supply) (even for) neighbourly needs. (Al_Quraan_107.001-007)
YOU MUST READ A BOOK ON HAJJ, AND LEARN EVERY THING YOUR SELVES DO NOT DEPEND ON THE HAJJ GUIDE OR MOULANA / SHEIKH. IN CASE YOUR MOULANA OR YOUR GUIDE GET SICK, LOST OR DIE, YOU MAY STILL BE ABLE TO CARRY YOUR HAJJ AND PERFORM YOUR HAJJ PROPERLY.

TAWAF: Perform Tawaf of Kabah seven times - - - - - - Fard of Umrah
Stop saying Talbiyah (Labbaik) before making intention of Tawaf. Do not say Talbiyah anymore.

your hands up to the ear and put it down on Hajre Aswad and say
Bismillahe Allahho Akbar, Wa Lilahil Hamd and put your hand down.

6 During all these tasks, whole frontal part of your body(i.e. face,chest, toes etc) should be facing towards Kabah.
7 Now without moving whole body just move the sole of your feet to the right, so the Kabah will be naturally, on your left and your face, chest and toes are turned right.
8 Note: If any time during Tawaf your face, chest or back has turned towards Kabah, you have committed an act of Makrooh-E-Tahrimi, therefore, it would be Wajib for you to repeat the whole one round of Tawaf again. Or pay Jaza(Compensation).
Note: Only at the time of Istalam turning of your whole body towards Kabah is permitted.
9 During Tawaf do not let your eyes wonder around but lower your eyes.
10 It is proper to perform Tawaf in such a manner that it form a circle around holy Kabah and direct your faculties solely upon the focal point that you are in the environment of Allah’s house where his Noor and Tajalli is directed.
11 It is Mustaheb to perform Tawaf by taking small steps.

body towards Kabah. If you are at a distance from Rukn-E-Yamani then
donot attempt to caress the Rukn-E-Yamani nor raise your hand or do Istalam on Rukn-E-Yamani. Just passed from there.

21 At the completion of each round, it is Sunnat to touch Hajre Aswad. But due to inaccessibility do Istalam at the completion of each round.
22 At the time of Hajj donot try to touch any part of Kabah in Ehram. Because Saudi Government put iter(Perfume) on it. If you touch Eitar(Perfume) your Ehram becomes invalid.
Wajibuttawaf -Once you have completed seven round of Tawaf perform two rikats Wajibuttawaf at Mukam-E-Ibrahim. If you cannot find a place than perform Wafjibuttawaf any where in Kabah.
