Info Haji 2024

TIMESINDONESIA, JAKARTA – Ihram, a sacred state for Muslims undertaking the Hajj or Umrah, involves specific guidelines and restrictions that must be adhered to. This applies for every season including Hajj 2024.

While much emphasis is placed on what is prohibited during ihram, it's equally important to understand what pilgrims can do during this period. Here are some activities that are allowed while in the state of ihram:

1. Performing Religious Duties

Pilgrims can continue their regular religious practices such as reading the Quran, performing Salah (prayer), and engaging in dhikr (remembrance of Allah). These activities not only help maintain spiritual focus but also enhance the overall experience of Hajj or Umrah.

2. Consulting Religious Guides

While in ihram, pilgrims are encouraged to seek guidance and clarification on religious practices. The Ministry of Religious Affairs provides various resources such as the Hajj ritual guidebook and videos, which can be accessed through the Pusaka application available on Play Store and App Store. Additionally, pilgrims can consult with religious guides and counselors available in each sector for any questions or concerns regarding their pilgrimage.

3. Staying Informed

It is recommended that pilgrims take time to review and understand the rituals of Hajj by reading through the provided manasik (Hajj ritual) guidebooks. This ensures that they are well-prepared for the upcoming rituals and can perform them correctly.

4. Socializing Respectfully

Pilgrims can engage in conversations and social interactions as long as they maintain respect and decorum. While certain behaviors such as arguing, using foul language, or any form of aggression are prohibited, maintaining a polite and respectful demeanor is encouraged.

5. Using Unscented Personal Care Items

While the use of scented products is prohibited during ihram, pilgrims can use unscented hygiene products such as soaps and lotions. This ensures cleanliness without violating the rules of ihram.

6. Health and Well-being

Pilgrims are allowed to take necessary medications and seek medical attention if required. Ensuring one's health and well-being is crucial, and this does not contravene the state of ihram.

7. Wearing Permissible Attire

While certain restrictions on clothing apply, such as avoiding stitched clothing for men and not covering the face and hands for women, pilgrims can wear appropriate ihram garments. Men wear two unstitched white cloths, and women wear simple, modest clothing that meets the ihram requirements.

By understanding and adhering to these permissible activities, pilgrims can ensure that they maintain the sanctity of their ihram while fulfilling their religious obligations effectively. The emphasis remains on spiritual growth and performing Hajj 2024 or Umrah with sincerity and devotion. (*)
