1. Regard the time in Hajj as a blessing. One never knows when one may be favoured with this good fortune again.
  2. Since your stay there is a short one, you should value every moment there. Do not waste your time roaming in the bazaars and do not indulge in meaningless things and idle talk.
  3. Do not allow your attention to drift towards the decoration and splendor of the buildings, nor indulge in humour and ridicule.
  4. One must be extremely cautious with regard to the etiquette of these sacred places. Any disrespect in this regard will be a cause for retribution.
  5. Do not criticize the conditions and people there. After all, the local residents are human and are prone to faults just as we are. When noticing the shortcomings of others, special attention must immediately be drawn to one's own faults and weak points.
  6. One must make a concentrated effort to avoid sin, especially casting passionate glances at female who are present at Hajj. One must keep one's gaze lowered when women gather for Tawaaf and salaat-u-salaam.
  7. Hadhrat Umar radhiyallahu anhu said, "For me to commit a sin in Makkah is worse than committing seventy sins outside Makkah". Just as the rewards of good deeds are multiplied in Makkah, so too is, the retribution of misconduct multiplied.
  8. One must show consideration and take care that one does not trouble or inconvenience those who are present for Hajj and Ziyaarah.
  9. One must not deceive or trick others in buying or selling. To swindle or cheat the residents of Makkah or Madinah would result in one's own destruction. One must be extremely cautious in this regard. Transactions must be carried out with honesty.
