The Haj Qurrah process starts district wise. Before the Qurah/Draw of Lots, it was decided by the Jammu & Kashmir Haj Committee to directly select the pilgrims of above 70 years of age and women who had applied to go for Haj without Mahram.
After the Draw by the Jammu & Kashmir Haj Committee the list of pilgrims going to Haj from Srinagar, Jammu and other state districts and cities are now final. Those who had applied for this year’s haj can check their status using cover number as explianed above.
Reports coming from Kerala State Haj Committee, Andhra Pradesh Haj Committee, Telangana State Haj Committee, Gujarat State Haj Committee, Karnataka Haj Committee and other states said they will complete the Haj Qurrah in the next few days – possibly before the end of the January second week.
The Uttar Pradesh State Haj Committee however confirmed that it will hold the Haj 2019 Qurrah of the state on Friday January 11, 2019. The Rajasthan State Haj Committee said it will hold the Haj 2019 Qurrah on January 13, 2019. Maharashtra State Haj Committee conducted the Haj 2019 Qurrah on Monday January 07, 2019.
The Haj Committee of India distributed its total quota of 175,025 seats to pilgrims going to Haj through it. Accordingly, a total of 125,025 pilgrims will go through the Haj Committee of India and the remaining 50,000 seats have been allotted to Private Tour Operators (PTOs).
The Haj Committee of India has received a total of 267,261 Haj Application Forms (HAF) from 31 Indian states. The number of application received this year has drastically reduced due to various reasons. But, it is still more than the double of India’s Haj Quota allotted by Saudi Government.
Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi, Union Minister of Minorities, has requested the Saudi government to increase India’s quota by 20,000. However a final decision on this is yet to be taken. All the states including Maharashtra will be allotted more seats if this additional quota is granted to the country.
Also, the Haj Committee of India after completing Qurrah will release the Haj 2019 waiting list on February 05, 2019. The pilgrims whose names are in the Haj 2019 waiting list will be given a chance against cancellation of pilgrims who are unable to make the payment or cancel their Haj travel due to some other reason.
Haj pilgrims should note that the Hajj 2019 Flight Schedule from all embarkation points will be released by the Haj Committee of India only after the process of the Haj Qurrah is completed by all states. However, according to Haj Action Plan 2019, the first outbound flight for Haj 2019 will depart from India on July 01, 2019. The last outbound Haj 2019 flight will be on August 03, 2019. The first inbound Haj flight from Saudi Arabia to India will be on August 14, 2019.
Coinciding with Eid al Adha, Haj is the annual ritual to commemorate the sacrifices made by Prophet Ibrahim, his wife Hager and their son Prophet Ismael. The likely date of Wuqoof e Arafat – the key ritual of the Hajj, is August 09 or 10. As the Islamic calendar is based on sighting of moon, the final date will be decided once the new moon of the month of Dhul Hijjah is sighted.
