What should I take with me to Hajj?

The most agreed upon rule of thumb in regards to packing for Hajj is Pack Light. We emphasize this simply because there is not much you need to take for the actual Hajj days, and for the remainder of your time, a lot of what you need is available in Saudi Arabia at great costs. However, a general list of necessary things to pack is as follows: Weather is very mild in Saudi Arabia during Hajj so take only comfortable and light clothes. Small Quran, Hajj book, prayer rug, sandals, medications for diarrhea, cough/cold, fever/headache (in original packages), note pad and pen, sunglasses, and a jacket or sweater. Clothing requirements for the Ihram, including a leather belt with an area to keep money and other things that must be carried.
