Registering Haji Under Tabung Haji
Last Thursday, we went to Tabung Haji Kulai, Johor to withdraw and deposit some money. At the same time we registered our names to perform Haji. According to the female officer incharge, in order to register for Haji, we need to have at least RM1,300 in our Tabung Haji account. After registering ourselves (husband and wife), we were given a slip each. It was stated in the slip that we can go to perform Haji in 2025. That is 16 years from now. However, according to the officer, normally, before 10 years, Tabung Haji will invite us to perform haji. We should be ready from now. We have to prepare financially, spiritually, physically and mentally.
Last year’s cost to perform haji is around RM11,000. Tabung Haji have not declared the cost to perform haji in 2009. I wonder what will be the cost to perform haji 10 years from now. My guess would be around RM17,000 per person.
Let’s say in 10 years time Tabung Haji will call us and say it’s our time, that means we will be performing Haji at the age of 43. My children will be 17, 15 and 14 years at that time, if we still have 3 kids. Hopefully I’ll have more than that… 🙂
What about you? Any plans?
