The program was solid!

MashaAllah the organizers were great. From the time we arrived at JFK, they introduced themselves and gave great direction. May Allah (SWT) bless Br. Raja, Abdullah, Sajjad, Shahzad, Shad and all those that made this such a wonderful trip. The program was solid; the Shayukh approachable and any “behind the scenes” drama was not made known to us, and for that we are grateful.

Awesome!

Alhamdulillah no complaints, everything was fine. We thank everyone as they were helping everyone when the hotel management could not be so accommodating. Arafat was a lot more than we expected.  Especially with kids, we were able to live like at home. Mina was again more then what we were expecting. Makkah was Alhamdulillah awesome, thanks to all of you, especially Sajjad and Shahzad.

Outstanding!

Outstanding effort by Zamzam organizers who have gone out of their way to accommodate people, and mitigate as much as they could from the chaotic Saudi system. May God reward them all. -Khalifa Family

If you want a Hajj experience with a peace of mind, then The Fifth Pillar is who you should consider.

If you want a Hajj experience with a peace of mind that all the logistics will be taken care of properly and if any issue happens, it will also get taken care of, then Fifth Pillar is who you should consider. The overall experience wouldn’t have been the same if we didn’t have the Fifth Pillar team right by our side handling everything, both expected and unexpected events. They were super patient, very kind and always caring. Having Imam Majid to help lead us and tell us stories and walking thru rituals as well as giving us insights into the life of the Prophet, made everything that much better! From all the conference calls to in-person meetings, expectations were well set, and all the resources and information provided really helped us prepare for the journey and what to expect. Highly recommend the Fifth Pillar especially if you are looking for a true spiritual experience during Hajj. -Saleem (2017)

Very approachable and friendly!

I found the organizers very approachable and friendly. They were calm even when it got tough. The organizers genuinely cared about the group as if it was their own family. -Fariduddin (2017)

The separate Khutbah for the sisters in Arafat were amazing!

I had a great time in Madinah. Alhamdulillah great location, good food, excellent speeches/sessions/handouts! You all did a good job managing surprises. The accommodations and the separate Khutbah for the sisters in Arafat were amazing. The hotel in Makkah is like a palace to us now.

Professional, experienced, knowledgeable, and patient.

The content organizers (Sajjad, Imam Magid, and friends) were all extremely professional, experienced, knowledgeable, and most important patient. Truly, their easy dispositions and cool heads in the face of expected unexpected events, irritant hajji's, and their own fatigues – served as effective examples to all of us and helped all of us complete our hajj obligations. Bless them and I hope to share my hajj with them again someday. -Tajuddin

The best!

I have had a splendid time during my hajj trip. The organizers and Imams made this trip so unique that I felt literally, even among all million hajjis, as if I am the only one doing it. They were very responsible, very accommodating, and very sincere to the utmost level to make the hajj trip a genuine spiritual trip. Of course, sometimes things go wrong, processes, etc.. but that was totally out of the organizer's hand.  Finally, the experience encountered in this hajj journey would stay way deep in my heart and in my mind forever and for sure Insha’Allah I will go again if Allah permits and if I did, Insha’Allah it has to be with same organizers….these are the best to take care of hajjis. -ElMoufti

Very nice and comfortable!

I love Madinah – look back it was very peaceful, relaxing, and close to the Mosque. Highly recommend staying in Medina before Umrah/Hajj. Arafat was nice, although roughing it, it was relaxing. Plenty of water and fruit available. Bathrooms (women) were plentiful and clean. Muzdalifa was a humbling experience. In Mina, the women had a great bonding experience. Makkah was excellent as well; the timing for Umrah was good because it was cooler and less crowded. The organizers were friendly, knowledgeable, patient and organized and always updating us on what to expect. Absolutely No Complaints!  Madinah was a great time, thank Allah and you all. Arafat was unexpected and was very nice and comfortable to spend a great time for ebadah. The accommodations in Makkah very nice, and relaxing.

Amazing!

The Fifth Pillar was an amazing group to go with. The organizers were available before the trip, during the trip, and even wanted feedback after the trip. I have no complaints and only good things to say. -Shareef (2017)
