Zaka-ur-Rehman Group

Home History
Zaka-ur-Rehman Group is organized by Almas Zaka-ur-Rehman Foundation which is a non-profit organization based in Lahore Pakistan. We have been assisting pilgrims for performance of their Haj & Umra since 1988. We  take four groups in a year: April Umra, June Umra, Ramzan (October) Umra and Haj. The Umra groups are of 7 to 18 days duration while the Haj group is of 16 to 28 days duration. The packages & prices of these groups are available only from our office in Lahore. We only accept reservations manually at our office in Lahore, therefore do not send us your requests by email. Our Hajj group is usually reserved 4 years in advance.

Zaka-ur-Rehman Group handles complete Haj / Umra issues for our group members which includes Accommodation, Food, Transport, Air Reservation / Ticketing, Haj Application / Visa formalities and whatever assistance is required for the performance of a comfortable and memorable Haj / Umra. We do not advertise our group, and the constant increase in our group size is due to the goodwill created with Hajis going in previous years. Our dedication can be gauged by the long history of our group. Detailed information about members of our past Haj Groups is available on this site.

Since the Pilgrims performing Haj / Umra with us are primarily of the middle & upper class, they expect us to arrange comfortable accommodation (4 or 5 Star Hotels) close to Haram Shareef and Masjid-i-Nabawi. Because of this, our Haj Package is more expensive than what is offered by Pakistan's Ministry of Haj. But, if our group members were to hire the same hotels on their own, they would cost them much more, since we get huge discounts because of our long term contacts and large group size. Before the end of the trip, we finalize our accounts and refund the balance money to the group members. Over the years, we have voluntarily refunded substantial amounts to every group member at the end of the trip.

Zaka-ur-Rehman Group caters for a limited number of pilgrims and reservation is on first come first served basis. Reservation for our Haj and Umra Groups is done by applying to our office in Lahore. However, our Haj Groups are usually reserved 4 years in advance.

All our groups are planned for departure from Lahore, but arrivals in Jeddah / Madinah can be coordinated for pilgrims arriving from other countries. Of course in that case, the international flight to Saudi Arabia & Visa responsibility will have to be borne by the pilgrim. For any additional information, please feel free to contact us.
