WHY PILGRIM CENTRAL
Pilgrim Central is a Web App that serves as a platform to know about the rites of Hajj and Umrah from the most authentic sources.
The fiqh is based on how the Prophet ﷺ made Umrah and Hajj, starting off with content from a book written by Shaykh Muhammad West from Cape Town.
The content provided is definitely not exhaustive. However, our aim is to provide a concise App, that provides information for both pre- and post trips that is accessible from all devices online. It also provides the history of this blessed journey, some POIs and Dua.
