The hajj is among the five pillars of Islam and every capable Muslim must perform the pilgrimage at least once.
Hajj is the fifth pillar of Islam. It is a once-in-a-lifetime requirement for every Muslim.
It is a spiritual gathering of Muslims from all over the world seeking forgiveness and the blessings of the Lord. Every ritual of Hajj emphasizes the fact that we are all equal before God.
There is no difference between rich and poor, white or black, superior or inferior, weak or strong, man or woman, Eastern or Western.
