    Why is Hajj important for Muslims!


    Did you know that 1.3 million people from 164 countries embark on a Hajj pilgrimage every year? What inspires millions of people across different continents to come together and worship? It is passion for God that grips millions of hearts.

    If you are wondering what could possibly stir such a large number of hearts in the same direction then, read on to know more.

    Hajj is essentially embarked on once a year and during the final month of the lunar calendar. During the rest of the year pilgrimages are still encouraged however, they do not earn Muslims the same amount of blessings as Hajj. This pilgrimage lasts for approximately five days and on the last three days, pilgrims celebrate Eid Al-Adha.

    Muslims celebrate only two major festivals one being Eid Al-Adha and the other Eid Al-Fitr. The latter is celebrated at the end of Ramadan.

    Hajj is definitely seen as the acknowledgement and profession of faith in one God and MUhammed (SAW) as the final Prophet. Many people believe that the performance of Hajj is related to the actions of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) when in fact, it has much more relevance to the life of Prophet Ibrahim (AS), commonly known as Abraham to Abrahamic religions.  

    As per the Islamic tradition, the Kaaba which is situated in Makkah is considered a sacred place where angels would worship God much before man could come into existence. It has been told that the Arch Angel Gabriel helped Ibrahim(AS) construct the Kaaba. It stands as a symbol of faith in the worship of Allah.

    A devotee who has completed the Hajj pilgrimage can add the phrase Al-Hajj or Hajji to their name. Many Muslims believe that the most meaningful aspect of their pilgrimage is the unification of believers from all over the world to worship together.
