The AHLI JEEM represents a concept derived from a people who have stronger links to no other homeland other than the KA’BAH al Musharafah, situated in ‘the mother of cities’, MAKKATUL MUKARRAMAH. the AHLI JEEM hail from ‘the mother city’, the Cape of Good Hope

AL JEEM EXPERIENCE
When one has their supplications answered and Allah accepts their call for them to journey to the Ancient House, many a thought is conflicted with the countless opinions of others who are brimming with enthusiasm to share their experiences. These are invaluable but need to be appropriated to suit the needs of the prospective Hajji…
The Al Jeem offering is more than mere travel arrangements but commences months prior to the journey with optional enrollment into the College of Hajj and Umrah. This offers thorough preparation to the Hajji presented over dozens of interactive sessions all accompanied by audio-visual presentations in-class handouts
for quick and easy reference when the need arises. Al Qur’aan encourages making provision for this remarkable journey and outlines the best of provisions as being that of righteousness. The frequent meet ups prior to departure within the College and beyond allow for the injection of regular dosages of spirituality that will yield their dividends when one comes into the august presence of Our Master Ar Rasul SAW and furthermore when infront of the Sacred House.
Visiting the Holy Cities is as much about prayer, salutations on the Final Messenger SAW and loads of His Remembrance as it is about realising who you are, the purpose of your creation and the very reason for your existence. The Al Jeem Team facilitate this process serving as catalysts by answering the ‘how’ and ‘when’ and more importantly, outlining the ‘why’ to each of the many acts of devotion, forms of worship and rituals of Hajj that will be diligently and seamlessly executed. The Al Jeem motto is based on conveying all we have learnt and discovered regarding our colourful Islamic Legacy with the hope of unearthing even more, that each would contribute to enhance the next as we grow closer to Our Creator. Months and years of preparation culminate in the climax of the days of Hajj themselves where every moment must be the fulfillment to a prayer in a never ending dialogue with the Almighty. The Al Jeem journey is lifelong as it continues after the days of Hajj in a collective and focused endeavor to utilize our individual and shared Hajj experiences to unravel the trials of life through a fraternity referred to as the Al Jeem Loyalty Programme.
