Special Guidelines for those performing Hajj and Umrah
From the noble utterances of our Shaikh and Mentor, Arif Billah Hazrat‐e‐Aqdas Maulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Sahab ( )

1. One should safe guard one’s gaze. In other words do not look at any man or woman with lustful gazes. People from all around the world are present at the Holy Sanctuaries of the Harmain Sharifain. Therefore, one should always be alert and on one’s guard not to glance at any ghair‐mahram even from the corner of one’s eyes.

(This is also an ibaadat and means of attaining spiritual reward) 5. One should not debate over controversial issues neither should one get in unnecessary arguments. 6. During Tawaaf one should not look at the Ka’aba Shareef....
