This iReport is part of an assignment:
Going on Hajj?
Preparing for Ihram
I am in the airport in Amman, Jordan. I will soon be leaving on a flight for Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. My pilgrimage will officially begin when the plane passes the sacred boundary of Makkah, and I need to prepare myself to enter the state of ritual sanctity, known in Arabic as ihram.
