On Friday January 26, 2018, a sudden last-minute decision from the ministry of religious affairs caused the postponement of the Hajj balloting 2018, which was previously due to occur today, after a stay order was issued by the Sindh High Court. On Thursday, the Sukkur bench heard a petition about certain restrictions and conditions of the new Hajj policy, declaring them anti-Islamic and against the Sharia, leading to the issuance of a stay order on the balloting.

A Little Word about Hajj
Hajj is referred to the annual pilgrimage made by Muslims all over the world when they visit the Holy city of Makkah. This spiritual journey takes place once every year, and nearly 3 million Muslims take part in it.
The Islamic beliefs regard Hajj as a mandatory practice for all Muslims who can afford to perform it. Therefore, Hajj has a significant importance in the beliefs of Muslims. Even those who cannot afford it keep saving and scraping away money all their lives to perform this sacred journey at least once in their lifetime.
When Do Muslims Perform Hajj?
According to the Islamic calendar, the pilgrimage of Hajj is performed from the 8th until the 12th of Zul-Hijjah, which happens to be the last month of the Islamic calendar.
The Hijiri or Islamic calendar holds much significance for Muslims living all over the world. Basically, it is a lunar calendar that works on the basis of moon sightings. The arrival of each month is marked by the physical sighting of the new moon. The dates of the Gregorian calendar are based upon certain astronomical measures. Now, while the Gregorian dates for Hajj keep changing each year, the Islamic dates are therefore more important.
