The Hajj: Have you been?
Hajj: Journey of a lifetime
- sarahbrowngb, CNN iReport producer
Hajj is one of 5 pillar of Islam. . All Muslims need to perform Hajj at least once in their life time (if they can afford it). If someone afford to travel to Makkah, should perform Hajj as soon as possible.
This is a dream of every Muslims to go to Makkah to see the Holly Kaba and perform Hajj. Several people those are less fortunate saves money in their whole life to just to go to Makkah and perform Hajj.
Kaba was built by Profit Ibrahim (Abraham) . Muslims around the world pray five times a day facing toward kaba.
Once we arrived in Makah and look at the Kaba, we couldn’t believe our eyes. Cannot explain our feelings when we looked at the Kaba first time. This is the moment when you prayers are accepted.
While people are there, they should pray for forgiveness, pray for their families, friends and for all the people suffering in the world.
