Update (15-08-2016) :
I am happy and excited to announce that the pledge for arranging the bus for Hajj Volunteers has just reached to the targeted amount of 15000 SAR. Alhamdolillah, Alhamdolillah.
Verily those who give sadaqah, men and women, and lend Allah a goodly loan, it shall be increased manifold, and theirs shall be an honorable good reward [Quran 57:18].
In Shah Allah we will see you there working 12 hrs under direct sunlight for 5 days, helping needy Hajji’s and getting their prayers. May Allah put Barakah in your rizk. May Allah give you unlimited reward for your contribution for offering your services for guests of Allah.
Remind yourself and your friends: O you who believe! Give away some of what we have provided for you before a Day arrives on which there is no trading, no close friendship and no intercession ( Sorah Baqarah). Share this ayah with others and motivate them to the spirit of giving!
Whoever works righteousness — whether male or female — while he (or she) is a true believer (of Islamic Monotheism) verily, to him We will give a good life (in this world with respect, contentment and lawful provision), and We shall pay them certainly a reward in proportion to the best of what they used to do (i.e. Paradise in the Hereafter)”
Jazak Allah Khier.
Thanks and Regards,

Most of you who have performed Hajj must know the quantum of suffering faced by our Pakistani Haj Pilgrims (Non KSA Residents) every year during Hajj. Primarily because most of them are elderly people, with no Arabic knowledge and many of them cannot comprehend Billboard Sings and Maps. Good news is that, this year 3000 Pakistani Hajj Volunteers got registered and trained to serve Pakistani Pilgrims under Umbrella of Pakistan Hajj volunteers group.
Pakistan Hajj volunteers group (PHVG) is serving guests of Allah ( Hajj Pilgrims) since last 5 years. PHVG is a KSA based non-governmental, non-political group with an aim to earn reward from Allah by serving Hujjaj as they perform Hajj. They have been providing support services to Hajj pilgrims through mobilization of Pakistani volunteers in association of World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY).PFA presentation for details.
Today after Fajar I met Mr. Adnan (my neighbor since 3 yr) who is Senior Staff of PHVG volunteer group (also Chief Accountant in a Multi-National group). He shared with sorrow that it’s first time in history of WAMY that they excused form sponsoring PHVG this year, due to unavailability of funds. Also WAMY offices other than Riyadh office got closed. This has put PHVG into big financial pressure. On my questions about how to support this cause he told: As volunteers don’t take any monetary benefit so the major cost is Transportation of Volunteer and Residence in Makkah. The cost of one Bus that carries 48 Volunteers for 5 days trip is 15000 SAR. Currently arrangement of Buses is the biggest challenge.
I was just wondering that if we cannot become physical Hajj volunteer (marching 12 hrs per day for 5 days in direct sunlight) this year, then at least we can pool in some money and sponsor transportation. Target is to arrange one BUS for Hajj Volunteers who are leaving their houses for this noble cause. Mr. Adnan told that if group of people can arrange BUS(s) to carry volunteers they do not need even a single penny to be handed over to PHVG.

I will plea to support this noble cause generously. The cost of Seat for 1 volunteer is 350 SAR. Please do let me know if you are interested to support. Even a smallest donation of 1 SAR will be counted and added to balance to your divine bank In sha’Allah
