Our History​
Hajj Pros is a collaboration
born out of the efforts of Sulaimaan Hamed and Shahidah Sharif married for over 10 years and committed to studying, teaching Al-Islam helping others in fulfilling  the pillar of Hajj, and providing an opportunity for others to do the same. While studying in Damascus, they were afforded the opportunity to meet while studying for the purpose of da’wah, calling others, and perform Umrah and Hajj. After seeing the difficulties for men and women from Western cultures on the Hajj due to language and cultural barriers, they committed themselves to facilitating a service that would bring a sense of ease in fulfilling the obligation of Hajj. Over the years, they have remained committed to improving their services at an affordable price.Working as a husband and wife team gives them an opportunity to service families and individuals who make their intention to make Hajj. Assisting pioneers, married couples, women, families with children, and believers with physical disabilities has given them the insight to the sensitivities that many may see as a “limitation” to fulfilling the pilgrimage, they address it as an opportunity to fulfill it in a manner that provides ease to the individual. With every difficulty comes ease is a sign that is apparent throughout the journey. It is their prayer and goal to continue offering this service as long as Allah permits.
