Meaning: “And proclaim to the people the Hajj [pilgrimage]; they will come to you on foot and on every lean camel, they will come from every distant pass”. (Surah- Al Hajj. verse: 22:27)
Hajj is a holy journey of Muslims held in Mecca every year on the scheduled date of the month of Dhul-Hijjah. Hajj is a mandatory religious duty that must be carried out at least once in a lifetime by all adult Muslims who are physically and financially capable of undertaking the journey. On the other hand, Muslims can perform Umrah in Mecca at any time of the year. Every year, about 140,000 and 100,000 Muslims from our country perform Hajj and Umrah respectively. It is important to be financially and physically prepared for this blessed visit. In the socioeconomic context of Bangladesh, persons who are interested to perform Hajj or Umrah are often unaware of how to save for hajj or umrah. That’s why this MetLife Hajj and Umrah savings policy can help you to meet your financial need for performing Hajj or Umrah in addition to life insurance coverages.
