In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful
 
He is the only Lord, the King, the Holy, the Peace, the Forgiver, the Watchful Guardian, the Majestic, the Dominant, and the Exalted. God is too exalted to have any partner.(Holy Qur’an, Surah Al Hashr 59:23)
 
"Labbaik Allahumma Labbaik, Labbaika La Shareeka Laka Labbaik, Innal Hamdah, Wan Nematah, Laka wal Mulk, La Shareeka Laka"
 
(“Here I am, O Allah (in response to Your call), here I am. Here I am, You have no partner, here I am. Verily all praise, grace and all sovereignty are Yours, You have no partner”)


We are blessed to once again witness the Hajj season where the fortunate ones have travelled to Madinah and Makkah responding to the call of Allah (SWT), The Almighty, The Majestic, The Supreme … in fulfilling their obligation of Hajj.
