The Essence of Hajj

This week millions of Muslims have merged into Makkah (in today’s Saudi Arabia) for performing ‘hajj’(pilgrimage). No annual event on the face of the globe, religious or non-religious, compares to hajj in terms of the sheer number of participants, duration of the event and the breadth of agenda. In spite of this fact, it has always remained equally fascinating and mysterious to not only non-Muslims, who are barred from entering the holy city, but also to millions of Muslims, who had not performed hajj.
