Previous Post: At The Jeddah Airport
Our Hajj trip was in 2008 and at that time, according to the government quota a person going to Haj through Haj Committee could carry only up to 35 kg of luggage together with 10 kg hand luggage. So for three of us it was 105 kg with 30 kg hand luggage that we can carry along with us in the flight. As we were to take rice, dhal, stove and other such items, it would easily reach that weight. Any easily breakable item should be carried as hand luggage. Also the weight of the single suitcase should not exceed 23 or 24 kg maximum was a rule. So we couldnot stuff any suitcase as much as it could hold.
The weights of our things were as below:
My uncle’s suitcase with his clothes – 10 kg – we intended to have it for hand luggage
Suitcase with our clothes (mine and my husband’s) – 17 kg
Trolley suitcase having stove, cooker and other utensils – 26 kg
Bag with rice and other readymade food items – 25 kg
Trolley bag with groceries – 24 kg
Small bag with snacks – 12 kg
Hand luggage backpack with cosmetic items like soap, lower, comb and Quran and Haj guide books – 8 kg
Hand luggage backpack with blanket, Ihram dresses and one set of dress for each of us – 8 kg
So total luggage weight excluding hand luggage – 105
Thank God! It is the exact weight. But

we got that only after remove a kilo of sugar, a kilo of salt and 2 litres of cooking oil with great reluctance.
We took our things and put them into the scanner. It went inside through the belt and came out after scanning. They did not ask us to open any luggage. We did not get any trouble in that and so we had to carry our luggage to a vehicle about 30 feet away.
It was like a
container vehicle with many coaches attached to it. It carried out luggage to a big hall and dropped them all there. In that hall there were many chairs and bathrooms. We separated out our luggage and then fulfilled out toiletry needs and felt
we were very hungry. The time was 4 early morning. We had the Biriyani given to us

in the flight and some cakes and cool drinks and we could quench our hunger with them.
We got into one of the retail outlets there and bought a Mobily company SIM card for each one of us. Then we rang up to our hometown to convey the news of our safe landing. Then I noticed that the things were taken to another vehicle at a short distance. We were all tired to carry our bags and so I noticed a trolley and grabbed it. Seeing me loading the trolley with our things, other pilgrims asked us where I got that and they too ran to take one for each.
After loading all the luggage machan got headache and so slept in the chair. A person was shouting 35, 35 in English and I pulled the trolley to his place and showed my passport. He said that my guide’s number is 27 and I have
to wait for my turn.
I was full of unknown happiness and my eyes had lost all the sleep. I was expecting for new adventures at the new soil with lots of desires in my heart. My long
cherished dream of seeing
Kaaba and performing Hajj is to become true and with a heart brimming with joy, I was waiting for the bus to Makkah at the Jeddah International airport.
