The Hajj

The annual pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia, begins at sundown on September 21st and concludes on the 26th.  Millions of Muslims will descend on Mecca, the birthplace of the Prophet, Mohammad, the founder of Islam. It is considered to be one of the “Five Pillars of the Faith” for Muslims to make the pilgrimage once in their life, if they are able to manage it physically and financially.
