Manasik Hajj is a demonstration of the Hajj ritual. Abata Moslem kindergarten had it in October, 30/ 2017. The purpose of the Manasik Hajj is to introduce children about the Hajj rituals like Ihram, Tawaf, Wukuf, Sa’i and Tahalul.
Prior to manasik, teacher told the Asbabun Nuzul of Hajj and the story of prophet Ibrahim family. Teacher then showed children how to do the Hajj rituals and told the places of pilgrimage.
Alief and Ba Class got the first turn to do the manasik Hajj then Ta and Abata classes the second. Boys wore the ihram clothes and the girls wore the white moslem clothes and veil.
The First ritual of Manasik Hajj that we did was intention of Hajj. Students recited niat of Hajj (Labbaika Allahumma Hajjan) then they recited Talbiyah (Labaik Allahumma Labbaik Labaikalaa syarikalaka baik Innal Hamda Wanni’mata Laka Wal Mulk Laa Syarikalak).
The Second was Tawaf : students started the Tawaf from Hajar Aswad and circled around Ka’bah counter clockwise seven times. Students stood facing the Black Stone and raised their right hand at the end of each circling while saying: “Bismillah, Allahu Akbar” (in the name of Allah, Allah is the Greatest). The circling is believed to demonstrate the unity of the believers in the worship of the One God, as the people move in harmony together around the Kaaba, while supplicating to God.
The Third was Sa’I : Students did Sa’I by walking back and forth seven times between the two small hills of Safa and Marwah. While doing Sa’I, they recited Innashofa Wal Marwata Min Sa’a irillah. Sa’i followed the actions of Hajar, the wife of Prophet Ibrahim who walked between the hills of Safa and Marwah seven times in search of water for her son Ismail.
The Forth ritual was Drinking Zam-Zam Water : After performing Sa’I students took a rest for a while to drink Zam zam Water and recited do’a Allahumma ini As’aluka Ilman Naafi’an wa rizqon Wa sian Wa Syifaan min kulli Daain Wa saqomin Birohmatika Yaa Arharrohimin.
The Fifth was Wukuf in Arofah : Students recited Dzikir and Do’a for them selves and Family and hoped that Allah would forgive their Sin.
The Sixth ritual was Jumroh : Throwing the small stone into the monument
The Seventh was Tahalul : Students finished all the Hajj rituals then cut their hair. The final ritual of manasik hajj was performing Shalat Idul Adha and sacrificing goat.
