Hajj certificate

Iraq, 21 Muharram 837 AH, 6 September 1433 CE

The Hajj certificate is a legal and juridical document bearing the name of the person that has executed a minor or major pilgrimage (‘umra or hajj) to Mecca. This certificate was for a pilgrim called Sayyid Yusuf bin SayyidShihab al-Din Mawara al-Nahri.

Measuring about seven meters long, it depicts symbolic figures showing the steps that Sayyid Yusuf took when visiting the holiest sites including Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem. It also features a large illustration of the Prophet’s sandal. At the foot of the document, the witnesses have signed to testify about the pilgrimage.
