 Hajj or Pilgrimage

Hajj is pilgrimage to Mecca in Arabia to worship at Kaba and nearby Arafat. Kaba is the `House of God` built by Prophet Abraham (P*) for the worship of one true God. This is an obligation for a Muslim, once in a lifetime, provided the person is financially and physically able to do so. It is a great spiritual journey. It demands intense devotion, control of passion, refrain from bloodshed and everything evil, and lead a very pious and holy life. Every male, king or peasant, rich or poor, black or white, wears two pieces of white un-stitched clothes to cover their body. They all stand side by side, shoulder to shoulder, and perform all the rituals. People from all walks of life and from all regions of the world; get together in the true spirit of Islamic brotherhood. Every year millions of people from all corners of earth take this spiritual journey to Mecca. Nowhere on earth have so many people gathered together for the worship of one true God. This leaves a very deep and lasting spiritual impression on the heart and soul of every person who perform the Hajj.
