4. I DON’T KNOW HOW TO PERFORM UMRAH; CAN YOU HELP ME?

Of course! You will attend a Seminar at Ebrahim College where we will go through the Umrah procedure with you. We will also go through trip details at the seminar.

5. I’M A WOMAN, CAN I GO?

Yes, you can! The Saudi Authorities recently changed their visa ruling so women can travel without a male guardian. We will have a large group of women travelling together, so from a Sharia point it is also permissible for you travel with the group without a mahram. We recommend that if possible, you should travel with a mahram, a friend, relative or guardian in case of any unforeseen emergencies whilst in Saudi. Please get in touch with us if you require more information on this.
