Health Guidelines for Heart Patients

In general, a heart patient can perform hajj rituals if his health condition is stable. However, he or she is preferred to:
  • Consult a doctor before going for Hajj to assess his health condition.
  • Take an adequate amount of medication, and keep it in a safe and appropriate manner.
  • Carry a medical card or medical report (showing the patient's condition and the medications he/she is taking).
  • Avoid excessive physical exertion, and use a wheelchair during Tawaf and walking between the Safa and Marwa, and when feeling stressed.
  • When the patient feels any chest pain or shortness of breath, he should immediately visit the nearest health facility.​​
