Transcript of Hajj

Day 1
Tawaf - circumnavigating the Ka'ba 7 times
Jeddah - Statement of intention - "Ihram"
Drinking of water from the sacred well at Zamzam
"Sa'y" - Running between hills of Al-Safa and Al-Marwah
Make way to Mina to stay for the night in preparation for Day 2

They then return to Mina for 3 or 4 days stoning the
pillars again each day.

Before the end of the Hajj, pilgrims will return to
Mecca once more to perform a farewell Tawaf
and to ask Allah for forgiveness.
"Ihram" - white clothing worn by pilgrims.

Gives pilgrims a sense of unity and strips away
any status or wealth amongst the pilgrims.

Everyone is equal.

1. A poster advertising this once-in-a-life time experience of undertaking the fifth pillar of Islam, HAJJ.
