Whether you’re going for Hajj/Umrah or planning to go someday in shaa Allah or simply assisting someone for the journey, these amazing Muslim businesses are there to cater to your Hajj/Umrah needs. Different product recommendations have already been discussed in the previous posts (1,2,3,4) for your ease and general availability.
But it would be great to support Muslim businesses if you can. Please note that none of these brands are endorsed by us. We are simply recommending the Hajj/Umrah products we got to know of and we are in no way affiliated to them. Hence you must do your own research too.
Hajj Safe – as the name suggests – has pretty much everything related to Hajj and Umrah – from theft-proof bags to unscented products, from towels to first aid kits, from hajj resources to ihram belts etc.
Zaytoon Naturals – Sensitive Skin 3 Mini Unscented Soaps (mini things are best for such light traveling)
Olive Tree Soap – for a complete handmade pack of unscented Hajj/Umrah goodies (along with a packing checklist).
You can also check Olive Bee (UAE – for unscented organic beauty products)
Deen Square (UAE), Hadiya Shop (UAE), With a Spin (along with a wudu pal and a handy cool mist fan – USA based), Islamic Impressions (UK), The Islamic Establishment (UK) etc. are also selling a range of Hajj/Umrah products.

CURE (for adults (especially as Hajj/Umrah healthy snacks)).
If you are going to Hajj with babies/infants, then food pouches are the easiest to carry and feed the child – Although most of the products are halal (as long as there’s no gelatin, meat etc. in there) but if you’d like to support a Muslim business, then you can look into ForAisha & Aarasfoods
Salaam Nutritionals’ HALAL Adult Gummy Multivitamins, Children’s Gummy Multivitamins, Children’s Gummy Omega+DHA, Calcium + Vitamin D Gummy etc. are great to keep your nutritional and energy levels up!
If you aren’t going for Hajj/Umrah but know someone who is going or returning from the blessed land, following resources may help:
To Teach Kids about Hajj/Umrah:
Run a rehearsal for kids at home (if they are going to Hajj/Umrah with you) so you can see which activity, book or magazine clicks best with them. The one they love the most, just take that along to discuss about Hajj and its significance.
Actually, you can even test out #AlhamdulillahForSeries gratitude journal with them and ask them to jot down what they are grateful for at Hajj, just to keep the positive vibes alive. Even you can fill it out to keep your mindset positive and flourishing when people run over your patience (yes, it can be a very testing time for some).
List of Free Hajj/Umrah Resources
Hajj Activity Book for Little Kids by Ilma education (with more amazing FREE hajj resources linked in the post)
Islamic studies resources also have a huge Hajj section for kids.
List of Hajj/Umrah Magazines for Kids:
But following are some Hajj/Umrah focused magazines that we stumbled upon, after some research.
(We personally would prefer faceless books/magazines out of all because children can keep/use them anywhere at Hajj/Umrah. Since there might be people offering their prayers around them, so having no facial features drawn on the books/magazines/toys is a plus).
List of Hajj/Umrah Books for Kids:
But following is a pictorial list of books available for kids on the topic of Hajj/Umrah.
14: Hajj Harmonies
15: Young Explorers’ Adventures in Makkah (for which we contributed the artwork as well).
