Islamic Gift Ideas for Hajj and Umrah. Hajj is the pilgrimage that is performed once a year during the month of Dhul-Hajj and Umrah can be performed any time throughout the year. The process of hajj and Umrah cleanse the soul of a Muslim from sins and instill the love for Deen and Allah SWT in the hearts of every Muslim.
When people come back from Hajj and Umrah, people in every culture greet them with love and respect and give Hadiya (gift) on their return from the sacred place. They can prepare meals or give some valuable gifts. They can also give Hadiya before they leave such as planners and duas, set in order to help them on this spiritual journey. The returners also, give Tabbaruk (Aab e Zam Zam and dates) to their relatives and friends.
What To Give To Someone Who’s Going To Hajj/Umrah?
Whether your loved one is leaving for hajj/umrah or they’ve already arrived back, you can make this trip even more special for them with these unique gift ideas.
↓ 20 – Bakhoor
Bakhoor is like a natural air freshener that is made from woodchips like Oud, natural oil and other organic ingredients like Saffron. It is used to perfume the house, clothing or just to add positive energy all around. It has been around for centuries and according to Islamic traditions, many Prophets including our Holy Prophet PBUH would use it regularly. It is also known as Agarwood and has many healing properties. Due to its Islamic significance, we believe it would be an ideal gift for anyone coming back from Hajj or Umrah.

↓ 19 – Wudu Foot Washer
If you’re thinking of buying a gift for a mature person like your parents, aunt or uncle who performed hajj/umrah then a wudu foot washer would be a good idea.

It’s a gift that they’ll use forever and it will make their lives much easier.
