Welcome to the official website of Karnataka State Hajj Committee, Allow us to help you better avail our services and navigate through the site to know more about us and Haj. Haj is one of the five tenets of Islam. It’s every Muslim’s desire to perform Haj at least once in his life time. Performing Haj is obligatory to every sane, financially able and adult Muslim. Haj is the fifth pillar of Islam, an obligation that must be carried out at least once in their lifetime by every able-bodied Muslim who can afford to do so.
The Hajj is associated with the life of Prophet Muhammad (SAW), but the ritual of pilgrimage to Mecca is considered by Muslims to stretch back to the time of Ibrahim and Isma’il, prominent figures in both Islam and in Judaism.
