Hajj - A time for togetherness

Posted on Mon, 2013-10-14 15:23

Hajj is a special time of the year for Muslims all over the world.  Whether you are fortunate enough to be able to perform Hajj this year, or will be wishing your friends and family well on their journey, the month of Zilhajj is close to our heart. 

 
We all know the importance of Hajj and the aspects and rituals behind this fifth pillar of Islam and each year we happily come together to pray and celebrate together.  From the time of Prophet Ibrahim, millions of Muslims travel to the Holy city of Mecca to perform Hajj.  And those who do not go to perform Hajj still take part in amaals, re-enact the acts of pilgrimage and celebrate Eid.  
 
 
Hajj allows people to unify themselves with others, absolve themselves of sins and pay tribute to Allah, where all equal in the His eyes regardless of race or status.
