Thank you Qibla Travels in particular Aatif for allowing my husband and I and my family to have amazing experiences and memories that we will be able to cherish for a lifetime as well as all the amazing photos we took of some truly incredible places!

My first trip was the Andalusia Tour in 2017! The hotel was clean, with friendly staff in a great location. The tours were incredible! Filled with Islamic history (exactly what we wanted), beautiful places and an excellent English speaking tour guide who enriched our entire experience even more as he went above and beyond!

As my first experience with Qibla travels was truly something to remember I did not hesitate to then contact Aatif again a second time in my most recent holiday to Istanbul.

I couldn't have chosen a better hotel in Istanbul It was in the best location, had great staff and we felt totally relaxed! The beds in this particular hotel (Sura Hagia Sophia Hotel) were the comfiest we have slept on!
Again, Aatif organised an amazing tour of the history in Istanbul with excellent English speaking tour guides!

This family holiday was one that couldn't have gone better especially as it was an extremely important one and I cannot thank Aatif and Qibla travels enough for making sure everything went perfectly!

Aatif always makes sure all my holiday requirements are met and I always have the most amazing experiences! Aatif is extremely efficient and organised. When booking a holiday with Qibla travels I always know I'm in safe hands and more often than not Aatif always goes over and beyond in terms of the service he offers - always friendly yet professional regardless of how many questions I ask or how much I will hassle him!

Really looking forward to planning my next holiday and will definitely be consulting Aatif and booking with Qibla travels again inshaAllah :D I highly recommend booking your holiday with Qibla travels!

Thank you again! :D

We traveled for Hajj with my elderly mum and Mashallah Qibla travel exceeded our expectations and fulfilled whatever our packages included and beyond. Very professional staff and friendly. While in London the staff gave us all the info and Hajj essentials and advised us on do and don’ts of Hajj plus advised almost on daily basis by Shaikh as what is allowed and not allowed in Hajj period. What was incredible is that the bosses of Qibla and the ground staff in Makka stay with you all times wether sleeping in Mina or in mozhdalefa they go through every step as you do. Allah give them strength to keep up the great job they do.
Highly recommended.

"Qibla Travels turning dreams into reality"

As-Salaam-Alaikum to you all. Alhamdulillah, three weeks I spent with my brother, wife & my 3-year-old daughter performing Hajj has been the most spiritually fulfilling and most enjoyable experience of our entire lives.

Qibla Travel is an excellent team of organizers and religious guides, that provide all the knowledge and expertise required for performing the rites of Hajj in accordance to the Quran and Sunnah.

The team is experienced with running Hajj & Umrah packages and as a result I felt I just had to concentrate on worshipping Allah (SWT) and I left everything else to the organisers at Qibla Travels.

Qibla Travels are well connected and very familiar with the areas of Makkah and Madinah. Alhamdulillah for the ease of our travel, accommodation and Hajj. I am grateful to Allah (SWT), for blessing me & my family with the opportunity to perform Hajj with Qibla Travels and I pray that Allah (SWT) accepts it from all of us. May Allah (SWT) continue to bless Qibla Travels abundantly, allow them to lead many more Hajj’s in future, that is accepted and that are run as smoothly and efficiently as our 2018 package. Ameen.

Salam,
Jazakumullah for everything Qibla Travels and their devoted team did for us. I personally thank you all For the time and effort you all put in. I have been telling everyone that Mashallah. Qibla Travels looked after us very very well. Specially sister Annie, can’t thank her enough for her constant help and support. I was amazed by the politeness, patience, and humbleness of the entire family. All I can say is may Allah make your Duniya and aakhirah more comfortable and raise your grades Because you all looked after us during hajj. I was told to pack patience in my suitcase. Trust me traveling with you guys I did not need to observe patients as you guys provided things there and then The food was amazing, however brother chef has to go easy on Oil/ ghee/ butter Etc. And a humble suggestion, if more care is taken towards preparing menus and the more staple food is introduced As Channa dhal etc. Does not help in retaining wudu etc.

Compliments to the chef on Nahari, pye, and Halwa of course. My husband is definitely traveling with you guys in future Provide he gets pye for breakfast. Lastly, many many many thanks to you all And please forgive us if we came across rude, arrogant or ungrateful towards your service.
Jazakumullahu khayran katheeran.
Looking forward to traveling with Qibla Travels soon Inshaa Allah.

Just returned from hajj 2018. It was an amazing experience from start to end. Alhamdulillah the organizers made everything easier and tried to help the group in every way possible. We highly recommend qibla travels.

We feel that at times they went out of their way to help the hujjaj in the group. May Allah reward them, Ameen. We will be using them again Inshallah.

The Qibla Travels Team gave my son and I an incredible experience. This was our first Hajj and everything was very new to us. The team were very dedicated in making sure that we were well informed and taken care of.

I could see that the family based firm had a wonderful ethos of caring and putting everyone before themselves. I would definitely recommend Qibla travels to everyone. I felt that they were not just a company but they were our friends.

On behalf of my sister Asgari and Myself, We would like to wish everyone from Al Qibla Group Happy New Islamic Year.
Alhamdulillah I am sure all of us feel Blessed Having completed the rites of the Holly Hajj.
Now it is time to reflect on the journey of a lifetime,experiences both physical and spiritual amidst the huge mass of pilgrims all eager with anticipation and passion to be one with The Almighty and to follow the footsteps of His beloved Prophet Abraham Khalilullah and Rasul Allah PBUH.

It all began at Heathrow Airport under the umbrella of Al Qibla Group.All strangers a bit apprehensive maybe deterred by the enormity of the journey ahead and at the same time looking forward to achieving the spiritual awakenings once landed in the mystic and Holly sites of Mecca and Medina.
First stop was Istanbul Airport where all of us changed into our Ihrams. This was a first solemn step which transformed a group of strangers into a unified togetherness of the Ummah one for all and all for one.
As we landed at the Jeddah Airport there was a surge of excitement and anticipation and eagerness to reach Mecca. The Holly Al Harmain and The Heavenly Kaaba were beckoning.
Normally once landed it can take anything upto 6/8 hours to clear customs and another couple of hours to reach Mecca but full marks to Al Qibla for their immaculate planning we managed to circumvent the system and reached our hotel earlier than expected.

After quickly freshening up we were all restless and keen to reach Masjid Al-Haram and Kaaba. We all regrouped and under the banner of Al Qibla started our journey with resounding chanting of “Labbayk, Allahumma Labbayk,La shareeka laka Labbayk,Innal-hamda wan-n”imata laka wal-mulk La shareeka laka.”
As we reached Al-Haram The sight of Kaaba had us all spellbound and I was overcome with mixed emotions and felt both spiritually uplifted and a calmness descended upon me and I became oblivious to everything else around me as if I had descended into another sphere.
We managed to complete Tawaaf and Sayee as if in a spiritual trance yet felt energised and fulfilled.
One looses all sense and awareness of physical and material needs and this where one needs to be in the company of caring and experienced agent to supervise and guide through the holly rituals of Hajj according to the Sunnah and this is where Al Qibla personnel Mr&Mrs Khan ,Atif and Imams and their staff came into their own.
Mr & Mrs Khan and Atif were at always at hand to see to our needs and made sure all the arrangements were in place and to top it we had a round the clock canteen which served excellent food and beverages.
We had lectures from learned Imams about the Hajj Minasik as per Sunnah and thus we completed Minah,Muzdalifa and finally Arafat to our hearts contend and finally on 10th Zul Hijjah which was the most trying and full of “Aazmaish”we completed the marathon walk from Minah to Jamurat to Mecca for Tawaaf and Syee and back to Mina in a day.
Unfortunately I had an accident and Mr.Khan made special arrangements for us to return to Mina by bus.
All the way Mr & Mrs Khan and Atif led the procession tirelessly rallying the troops and urging us onwards. I must admit at the end of this we felt elated and happy that we had managed to complete our Hajj .May Allah Accept it.
We were very lucky to be in the company of such a wonderful and caring group of Hajjis and subsequently in the true spirit of Hajj we all became an extended family and InshAllah may this bond last amongst us forever.
I am indebted to Mr Khan and family to create such a wonderful atmosphere and care and provide service beyond the call of duty which enabled us to fulfill our Hajj Rites to our hearts satisfaction. I would highly recommend Al Qibla.

Thanks to the team at Qibla travel both here and in Saudi Arabia, me and my family had the best time; we all loved the service and our Umrah went well.

The hotel service was excellent thanks to the recommandation of Mr Khan as well as the pick up and drop off service of the airport.

Everything went smoothly and the service given by Qibla travel is 5 Stars

I cannot thank Qibla travel and Mr Khan enough for making mine and my family's experience a memorable one. Inshallah plan to book Hajj and Umrah in future with them.

Thank you Mr Khan and Qibla travel, keep up the hard work!!

The service in Saudi Arabia was brilliant. Hotels were located nearby, they were clean and staff was very understanding. They pick you up from the airport in big cars, perfect for travel. The drivers are always friendly and will stop if needed to purchase something. There were no problems at all. Will definitely recommend to anyone thinking of going umrah or HAJJ!

The Qibla Travels team gave me and my mum an incredible Hajj experience. We were looked after all the way through Hajj. And accommodation after Hajj was very good too. Inshallah if I go for Hajj again I will definitely use them. May Allah SWT reward them for their hard work.

It was an excellent lifetime experience. Initial Hajj Seminar was quite valuable as it prepared us for the journey very well. All the hotels were near the Haram which was helpful to offer all prayers in Haram or near to it. Experience of Kabba Facing room was invaluable and it was hard to take eyes off Kabba. There was a huge variety in the selection of food in all the hotels.

Arrangements were excellent at all the places during Hajj days.
Group leaders were available at all times to discuss and guide us and a lot of times went out of the way to help us. Islamic Scholars gave lectures during Hajj days after each prayer which were helpful to carry out all Hajj Minasiks without confusion. Our special thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Khan and Atif for looking after us so well.
