THE PILGRIMAGE TO MAKKAH: THE PILGRIMAGE TO MAKKAH PowerPoint Presentation: The annual pilgrimage (Hajj) to Makah is an obligation once in a lifetime for those who are physically and financially able to perform it. About two million people go to Makah each year from every corner of the globe. Although Makah is always filled with visitors, the annual Hajj is performed in the twelfth month of the Islamic calendar. Male pilgrims wear special simple clothes which strip away distinctions of class and culture so that all stand equal before God. The rites of the Hajj include circling the Kaaba seven times and going seven times between the hillocks of Safa and Marwa , as Hagar did during her search for water. Then the pilgrims stand PowerPoint Presentation: together in Arafa1 and ask God for what they wish and for His forgiveness, in what is often thought of as a preview of the Day of Judgment. The end of the Hajj is marked by a festival, Eid Al- Adha , which is celebrated with prayers. This, and Eid al- Fitr , a feast-day commemorating the end of Ramadan, are the two annual festivals of the Muslim calendar. ( Please visit for more information on the Five Pillars of Islam.)
