As I have posted elsewhere HADJ is not a correct transliteration. It should be HAJJ or HAJI. There is no "D" in the original Arabic word, and Swahili has no need to add a "D" either. Checked a lot of sources -- DL Swahili is the only place I find "HADJ".

I typed "haji" several times before realising it wasn't going to accept my correct spelling
