Hajj prayers at Mecca


Men and women Muslims in millions gathered in the holy city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, August 22 to celebrate the commencement of Eid al-Adha, known as Festival Of Sacrifice.

Hajj pilgrims stood shoulder to shoulder around the Kaaba, the cube-shaped building at the centre of the mosque, as well as at Mount Arafat, where the Prophet Muhammad delivered his final sermon. The pilgrimage represents one of the five pillars of Islam and is required of all able-bodied Muslims once in their life.
