Being a ‘Khadam al Hajjaj’ (Helper of the Pilgrims) runs in Wassim’s blood. His Late father Mohammed Abdul Malik (LALA) was one of the pioneers in the UK Hajj and Umrah sector over 40 years ago.

Since a young age he has had some form of involvement in this industry, in early 2007 was when he finally took over from his father and led his first Hajj group to Saudi Arabia with the support and guidance of his elder brother.

Prior to taking over the family business, Wassim was busy at university obtaining degrees in Sports Science and Physiotherapy. Along with a few other founding members Wassim helped create the whats app group which aided and assisted UK Munazzims while facing similar struggles in Saudi Arabia.

SAJID MUSA PATEL

Position:

Projects (FOUNDING MEMBER)

My main background is the IT sector, but have owned and ran many companies. I have been blessed with many opportunities in my life with different successful businesses.

Alhamdulilah my biggest success so far has been in this industry. Thrown into the deep end at the age of 28 due to the passing of my father in mina. I have over come many obstacles personally and with the company, but with the grace of almighty Allah today our company is one of the many successful and reputable Hajj companies in the market.

One of my main key strength in this market is the concern I hold for the well being of the Hujjaj first and foremost. And the love and respect I have for the industry and allahs guest is second to none. I care about our industry un-conditionally and am passionate about cleaning up the image it has today. The happiness of the hujjaj motivates me.
