Ramadan in Jerusalem

It is a growing trend in the Muslim world to spend Ramadan and do ihtikaf in Masjid Aqsa, the third holiest place for Muslims on earth, The first Qibla and third Haram has significance in Islamic history which is only second to the Haramain in Saudi Arabia. The trend has been strengthened by visa problems in Ramadan for Saudi Arabia and relaxed movement policies by local authorities in Jerusalem. Now you can go for spending the Ramadan in Masjid Aqsa without any problem. It is cost effective as well in comparison to Hajj and Umrah. Of course, it is not an alternative to Hajj or Umrah as such, but it can be fulfilment of a dream of a lifetime and a unique experience.

A growing number of Muslims enjoy this pleasure in other times of the years as well. The reward of one prayer in Masjid Aqsa is equal to 500 in other places. In Ramadan, the blessings from Allah SWT would be manifold and endless. Our ground teams in Jordan and Jerusalem are experienced in the trip and will make sure you can focus on your Ibadah during your stay.
