Perks of being a pilgrim

If you're going for Hajj through the Dubai Airport, then “Like the previous years, all pilgrims will be offered a gift bag that will include Haj accessories such as slippers, prayer mat, first aid box, umbrella and a thermos,” said Najjar. [Haj arrangements in place at Dubai airport]
There are so many perks of being a pilgrim! First, you get loads and loads of duas wherever you go- This is because people are asking you to pray for them when you get to Haram, and they have to pray for you in order for your duas to be accepted.
This is the pillar of Islam that weighs more than jihad for the sake of Allah. 5 days of continous worship, devotion, and detachment by millions of dusty, dishevelled followers.
So many prayers, I hope to pray for everyone, and not leave out anyone inshallah. May Allah (swt) accept everyone's duas.
My birthday gift this year inshallah is that I'm leaving for Hajj that day :)- as Sana pointed out. How cool is that?
