- Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam. Most Muslims perform it at least once in their lives. However, it is not mandatory, unlike the other four pillars, because of the hardships of the journey, so Islam has taken into consideration both the financial position and physical condition of the individual.
- The rites of Hajj are performed from the 8th to the 12th of Dul Hijjah.
- Eid Al-Adha falls on the 10th day of the month of Due Hijjah.
- All male pilgrims wear the same simple attire, which consists of two white cloths that cover the body. Women wear a simple abaya; most wear black and some wear white, but all have their heads covered with their faces showing.
- Hajj is more than an adventure. It is a journey into self-reflection and personality development. It’s an experience that allows Hajjis to live the brotherhood and sisterhood of humanity. It is a journey for learning the art of sacrifice; it allows pilgrims to connect with the divine.
