ASPIRING LEADER UMRAH TOUR
TOUR OF A LIFETIME
In February 2015, Human Appeal
Australia marked a new era of leaders
to emerge from the Muslim
community within Australia. We
initiated a new program that aimed to
create a group of remarkable leaders
that would have a positive impact on
the world and change it for the better.
The Aspiring Leaders Umrah Tour
Every year a group of 15 youth are selected from different cities in Australia to go on a trip of a lifetime. The tour begins with the pilgrimage to the Holy city of Mecca with the purpose of performing Umrah. They then depart to the city of light, Medina, where they visit the resting place of the beloved Prophet (pbuh) in Masjid Al Nabawi. Several museums are visited in both historical cities – Assalaamu-alayka Ayyuhan-Nabiy (The Prophet’s Project), the Holy Mosques, Ninety-Nine Names of Allah, Taiba, etc. The group also visit the Quran printing complex as well as the historical sites of Arafat, Mina, Quba, and Qiblatain.
After renewing and recharging spiritual and emotional connections at Islam’s Holiest places, the tour group then moves on to the city of Amman in Jordan. There they visit the historical ruins at Jarash, Um Qais and others. They then head to the Jordanian-Syrian border where they distribute aid to Syrian refugees and learn first-hand of the harsh conditions experienced.
This is followed by a visit to Human Appeal’s orphan
centre in Amman. The third destination of the tour is
Istanbul visiting the famous Fatih mosque, followed
by Topkapi museum, Sultan Ahmet and other
significant places. In Istanbul the youth leaders are
enlightened about the importance of understanding
the cultural interaction of Europe and Asia as well as
the rich Ottoman history.
Final destination for the group is Dubai in the UAE
visiting the headquarters of HAI in Ajman and
attending briefings about the Orphan Sponsorship
Program and the various humanitarian projects.
Throughout the tour participants attend leadership
workshops and development programs.
