The Hajj Sticker Journey is a great interactive way to encourage children in the learning and understanding of Hajj.
The Hajj chart shows the typical journey that a pilgrim will take on Hajj, marking all the major rituals of Hajj, as well as the location and dates the rituals are to be performed. Children will have the fun task of identifying which stickers from the sticker sheet need to be stuck onto the chart to complete the journey of Hajj, using the hints provided. Thus, parents and teachers can make use of the Hajj Sticker Journey to explain what Hajj is all about, making it easier for children to understand the main aspects of this sacred journey.
Package includes a Hajj Chart and a Hajj sticker sheet.
It is interesting to note that the title of this book so aptly reminds us that Hajj is the one and only one obligatory act that Allah commands us Muslims to perform only once in his lifetime, and that is if he can afford it.
Out of the five pillars of Islam that every true Muslim upholds, namely
Syahadah – the proclamation of faith in Allah and His Prophet, Muhammad (pbuh)
Solat – the five daily prayers
Fasting in the month of Ramadan
Zakat – tithe collected for the poor, the needy and other beneficiaries
Hajj – pilgrammage to Makkah
Only the fifth pillar, ie Hajj, is a one-off duty that is no longer obligatory once it has been fulfilled. Considering that the queue to perform Hajj nowadays is so long that it can stretch up to a 60 years in some Muslim majority countries, it is only logical to limit Hajj to once per person so as to give others a chance to perform it within their lifetime.
The story tells of Yan, who works hard on his farm to earn enough money before setting off for Hajj, but he meets others along the way who are badly in need of help. So he postpones his trip and decides to help them instead. Discover the heart-warming events that unfold as Yan’s sincere efforts and generosity finally brought him on his special journey of a lifetime!
