This study explores the development of research on the hajj’s economy (pilgrimage) published in reputable journal papers. The data analysed included more than 66 indexed research publications. The entire sample of journal publications has been published during the 18 years from 2003 to 2020. The export data is then processed and analysed using the VOSviewer application to determine a bibliometric map of the research’s development. The results show that the number of publications on the development of hajj’s economic research from 2003-2020 experienced a fluctuating increase, and most papers were published in 2019 with 15 articles (22,7%). Network visualisation showed that the map of the research was divided into 4 clusters. Cluster 1 consists of 15 topics; cluster 2 consists of 11 topics; cluster 3 consists of 11 topics, and cluster 4 consists of 10 topics. The findings of this study are in the form of suggestions for alternative research on the hajj investment fund.
