Muslims Journey to Mecca for the Hajj (حج)

Spotlight Want to see more photos from this year’s Hajj? Search the hashtag #hajj, and visit the location page of The Holy Ka’aba.

Every year, between the the 8th to 12th day of Dhu al-Hijjah, more than 3 million Muslims make the journey to Mecca, Saudi Arabia for the Hajj, or “pilgrimage.” All able-bodied Muslims who can afford to make the journey must do so once in their lifetime.

The Ka’aba, which translates to “The Cube,” is the most sacred site in Islam, and during the Hajj, it is circled counter-clockwise seven times.

The Hajj began last week, and ends on Monday.
