Hajj is an obligation on every Muslim once in a lifetime
if he can afford it. It is a desire of every Muslim to
go for pilgrimage to the House of Allah in Makkah.
Unfortunately, most of the people living in Pakistan are
unable to afford to pay for this journey.

employee of Cadet College Petaro for Hajj each year

has been increased to two per year.
Since 2010, of the 2 sponsorships, one of them is open
also for non-Muslim employees. In case a non-Muslim
employee wins the draw, the equivalent fund is given to
him for any special need of his of his choice.
