Islam has two major religious celebrations. The first occurs after the completion of Ramadan, the Islamic month during which Muslims (believers in Islam) fast daily from dawn to sunset as part of an effort towards self-purification and betterment. This holiday is known as Eid ul-Fitr (Festival of Breaking the Fast).
Islam, in Arabic, means “submission” – submission to the will of God. Faithful Muslims, therefore, submit unreservedly to God’s will and obey His precepts as set forth in the Quran and transmitted to mankind by Muhammad, His Messenger.
The story of Ibrahim is greatly associated with Hajj because the origin of Hajj is as old as the Kaaba, which was built by Ibrahim and his son, Ismail . Every act of Hajj reminds us of the noble family of Ibrahim since every act of Hajj refers back to the righteous actions and struggle of either Ibrahim , his wife Hajrah or his son Ismail .
Memories of Hajj is a documentary that takes you on a pilgrimage to a distant 1948 year. That year in Mecca and Medina for the first time introduced electric lighting in the city of Mecca was not a single building that was higher than the Kaaba.
