Hajj & Umrah being a spiritual Journey unlike any other pleasure or business trips, there is a spiritually sensitive dimension in organizing such packages within the guidelines set by various governmental authorities. Keeping all these aspects in mind, we from Shepherds consider being Customer Centric as our topmost priority in organizing Hajj & Umrah packages accordingly. A unique feature of Shepherds is that since our inception we have been conducting detailed surveys on Customer Feedbacks once our respected Pilgrims return from Hajj. This helps us to evaluate our overall packages and act accordingly if needed. We consider these surveys as an integral part for our effort to remain relevant with our customer preferences.

Hence we always try to maintain a level of transparency in our communications so that our respected clients can get real updates from time to time.

Affordable

Hajj and Umrah are getting expensive day by day due to various economic factors. We realize that for a vast majority of Bangladeshi Pilgrims arranging funds for Hajj & Umrah is getting difficult with time. Bangladesh Hajj quotas not getting filled up in recent years is a reflection of that scenario. Shepherds always strive to arrange affordable Hajj & Umrah Packages without compromising the service standards and overall package quality.

Striving for Continuous Development

In recent years, Hajj & Umrah sector has been greatly impacted by Post Covid-19 regulations and also by technological advancement. This resulted in digitalisation of many Hajj & Umrah services and also complications in Supply Chain Ecosystem. Taking all these challenges into account Shepherds always try to improve their service standards instead of taking things for granted. By the Mercy of Allah (Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala) our Customer Feedback from our surveys have been satisfactory since the beginning yet we did our level best to bring about improvements and experiment with various services in our packages within feasibility limits based on feedback we received even if it was from a minority of our respected clientele.

I have been immensely benefited from their training sessions. They have qualified scholars with them who are eager to provide proper shari'ah guidance to the hajjis. Also, they were very transparent in their hajj management process and tried to fulfill the commitments they made throughout the hajj journey. I hope they will strengthen their management team even more and continue to provide best services to the hajjis in the upcoming Hajj seasons.

Alhamdulillah completed Hajj in 2023 with Shepherds. They maintained outstanding sariah compliance by the guidance of two renowned Islamic scholars of Bangladesh. Besides, the whole management team worked relentlessly, tried to provide what they agreed and even extended their generosity by repeated reminders through lectures, text, voice messages etc. May Allah except our all good deeds. Wish to perform Hajj/Umrah again with Shepherds.

হজ জীবনে একবার করা ফরজ। আমাদের সামর্থ অনুযায়ী অনেক শ্রম, সময় আর টাকার বিনিময়ে আমরা হজ করতে যাই। কিন্তু এত কিছু করে যদি হজ করতে গিয়ে যদি ভূল করি, কোরআন /সুন্নাহ কে প্রাধান্য না দিয়ে নিজের বা সমমনা মানুষদের অকাট্য যুক্তি ব্যাবহার করে হজের আহকাম, আরকান ছেড়ে চলে আসি তাহলে এর থেকে বড় আফসোস আর কিছু থাকবে না। হজের নিয়ত করার পর আমি এমন এক এজেন্সি খুঁজছিলাম যাদের মাধ্যমে আমি এবং আমার পরিবার পরিপূর্ণ ভাবে হজ্জ পালন করতে পারি। অনেক খোঁজ খবর করে Shepherds এর মাধ্যমে হজ্জ করার ডিসিশন নেই। আলহামদুলিল্লাহ, উনাদের মাধ্যমে হজ করে আমি পুরোপুরি সন্তুষ্ট। হজ কবুল করার মালিক আল্লাহ। কিন্তু হজ যাত্রার বহু আগে থেকে প্রতি সপ্তাহে নিয়মিত ট্রেনিং আমাদের কে ধীরে ধীরে কিভাবে হজ করতে হবে তা কুরআন আর সুন্নাহর আলোকে প্রস্তুত করেছেন যাতে হজের সময় আমরা কনফিউজড হাজী না হয়ে কনফিডেন্ট হাজী হতে পারি। প্রতি নিয়ত ইসলামিক স্কলার রা আমাদের পথনির্দেশনা দিয়েছেন। উনাদের কাছ থেকে ব্যাক্তিগত প্রশ্ন, সমস্যার সমাধান পেয়েছি মিনার তাবুতে, আরাফাতের ময়দানে, মক্কায়, মদীনায়। হজে অন্যান্য এজেন্সির মানুষদের সাথে কথা বলে মনে হয়েছে হজ মানে ভালো হোটেল, ভালো খাবার, অন্যের থেকে সস্তা প্যাকেজ আর কোনো মতে নিজের বিবেক মতো হজের পাঁচদিন পালন করা যেখানে আরামের উপর আর কোনো কিছু থাকবে না। আলহামদুলিল্লাহ Shepherds এর শরীয়া গাইডলাইন আর অসাধারন স্ট্র্যাটেজিক প্ল্যানিং এর মাধ্যমে আল্লাহর রহমতে এই ফাঁদে আমাদের কাউকেই পরতে হয়নি। আর সেবা দেয়ার ক্ষেত্রে উনাদের আন্তরিকতা আমার হৃদয় ছুঁয়ে গিয়েছে। প্রতিনিয়ত মনে হয়েছে, ব্যাবসা করলে এমন করেই করা উচিৎ, যেখানে দুনিয়া আর আখিরাতের কল্যাণ এক সাথে অর্জন করা যায়। পরিশেষে একটা কথাই বলবো, ফরজ হজ জীবনে একবারই করবেন, সেটা পরিপূর্ণ কোরআন আর সুন্নাহর আলোকে করেন। Shepherds এই ক্ষেত্রে আপনাকে প্রথম থেকে শেষ পর্যন্ত আপনাকে সঠিক পথে গাইড করবে এবং ইনশা আল্লাহ আপনিও আপনার হজ পরিপুর্ণ ভাবে পালন করতে পারবেন।

Things to Consider When Choosing the Right Hajj & Umrah Agency and Packages
Performing Hajj or Umrah is a noble and transformative undertaking that involves careful planning and preparation.

Selecting the right agency and package is crucial for a smooth, enlightening, and spiritually fulfilling experience in the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah. Here are some essential factors to consider when choosing your Hajj or Umrah agency and package from Bangladesh: quality of accommodations like hotels in Madinah, inclusion of ziyarah, and the overall value the agency offers.

Reputation and Experience


Look for a reputable agency with a proven track record of providing high-quality services and customer satisfaction in the Hajj and Umrah tourism industry, both internationally and in Saudi Arabia.
Check the agency’s history, achievements, awards, and recognition in the industry, such as the Bronze Award won by Shepherds at the 10th Hajj and Umrah Conference.
Verify the agency’s registration and approval by relevant authorities, such as the Ministry of Religious Affairs and the Saudi Arabian government, to ensure they are a legitimate and trusted Hajj Umrah travel agency

Package Inclusions and Customization


Compare package inclusions and costs across multiple agencies to ensure you’re getting the best value for your money.
Consider the level of accommodation, transportation, and meals provided in the package, such as VIP services, shuttle buses to the holy sites in Mecca and Medina, and Zamzam water.
Look for agencies that offer customized packages tailored to your specific needs and preferences, such as non-disabled facilities or additional days in the sacred cities of holy Makkah or Medina, allowing you to spend more time in these spiritually significant locations

Spiritual Guidance and Support


Choose an agency that provides adequate spiritual guidance and support throughout your journey, such as the presence of knowledgeable Da’e or scholars.
Inquire about the agency’s approach to ensuring a spiritually enriching experience, such as organizing lectures, workshops, or group discussions.
Consider the agency’s efforts in facilitating a smooth and hassle-free experience, allowing you to focus on your spiritual objectives.

Logistics and Convenience


Evaluate the agency’s expertise in handling logistics, such as visa processing, flight bookings, and ground transportation, to ensure a smooth and hassle-free Hajj or Umrah experience.
Look for agencies that offer convenient payment options and flexible booking terms, especially in light of the ongoing pandemic, allowing you to plan your pilgrimage with confidence.
Consider the agency’s location and accessibility, such as Shepherds’ office in Hossain Housing, 17-18 Mirpur Road, Shyamoli, Dhaka, Bangladesh, 1207, for easy pre-registration and consultation, ensuring a seamless process from start to finish.

Health and Safety Measures


Inquire about the agency’s health and safety protocols, especially in the context of the complex COVID-19 pandemic, to ensure they are following the necessary guidelines and regulations set by the Saudi Arabian government and international health authorities.
Ensure that the agency follows the mandatory guidelines and regulations set by the Saudi Arabian government and health authorities to secure the safety of all Hajj and Umrah pilgrims.
Consider the agency’s contingency plans and support services in case of emergencies or unexpected situations during your journey, as these variables can significantly impact your pilgrimage experience
By carefully considering these factors and doing your due diligence, you can confidently choose the right Hajj or Umrah agency and package that meets your needs, budget, and spiritual aspirations. Remember, investing time and effort in selecting the right agency is a crucial step towards making your pilgrimage a truly memorable and transformative experience, in sha Allah. Factors to consider include the agency’s reputation, experience, and registration with relevant authorities in Saudi Arabia and your home country. Additionally, compare package inclusions, costs, and customization options across multiple agencies to ensure you’re getting the best value for your money while meeting your specific needs and preferences
