Your challenge is to trek up Mount Noor and Thawr (Makka, Saudi Arabia) on the same day. Mount Noor is where Cave Hira is located and it is in this cave the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ first received revelation. Mount Thawr is said to be where the Prophet and Abu Bakr (ra) took shelter during the Hijrah. It takes about two hours to complete the trek of Mount Noor and anything up to 4 hours for Mount Thawr.
After the challenge enjoy the rewards on offer by praying in the two holy Masjids of Makka and Madina and visit the historical sights of Islam through our sightseeing tours of the two holy cities, insha’Allah. By taking part in the Makka Twin Peaks Challenge you are contributing towards an important Islamic cause, share in the rewards of passing on good knowledge and help to improve our society, insha-Allah.
Abu Huraira (ra) reported Allah’s Messenger ﷺ as saying, “Among the actions and good deeds for which a believer will continue to receive reward after his death are knowledge which he taught and spread, a good son whom he left behind, or a copy of the Qur’an which he left as a legacy…” (Ibn Majah)
As part of the trip, you will perform Umrah. Otherwise known as the lesser pilgrimage. The virtues of Umrah are many. Not only did the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ specifically mention the virtues of Umrah, he encouraged us to perform Umrah.
If you have never performed Umrah: Don’t panic. You will be invited to our training seminar where we will go through the Umrah rites with you and give you practical advice. You will also be assigned to a scholar who will guide you through your Umrah.
You will learn how wear the Ihram and rules pertaining to being in the state of Ihram.
