  7. American Hijabi September 9, 2016

    I scored very well; which I’m not sure why I’m surprised – much of this was stuff that I had learned throughout my high school career; some of the more deep questions I of course learned as a revert, through my journey to Islam or just from living here in Saudi. I find that this is an amazing little quiz that could even be useful to our younger generations when teaching them about Hajj. Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks for your feedback. I’m a strong supporter of teaching about Hajj right from the tender years and reinforcing the knowledge with each passing year.

      Insha Allah you will reach greater heights of knowledge and eeman on your journey. We are all learners on the same journey.
