Qasswa was founded in 1981 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, by Mr. Mahmoud Asaad Hashem, who has been the CEO since. It started by providing services to a group of pilgrims and grew over the years to become one of the leading companies in the religious tourism industry, providing its services to thousands of guests exceeding 80,000 in 1433H (Dec 2011 – Nov 2012) from almost every continent on earth.
The name “Qasswa” came from the camel that prophet Mohammed PBUH performed his one and only pilgrimage to Makkah on. It was his enabler to perform this pillar of Islam. Therefore, we in Qasswa believe that, with our services, guests of Allah can perform their rituals and rites in a comfortable and hassle free manner.
Qasswa is one of the first local companies granted the license by the Ministry of Haj (www.haj.gov.sa) to be one of the “Certified Umra Service Provider” since the Saudi government organized the sector in 1423H/2002. Qasswa is reputable and has a professional track record with the Ministry of Haj since all its rules and regulations are being fulfilled. Moreover, Qasswa is a “Certified Local/Domestic Haj Service Provider” since 1415H/1995. Qasswa is remarkably considered to be one of the top three companies in this area.
