Hajj : A journey through Islam's special pilgrimage


For the 1.8 billion Muslims around the world, the Hajj is considered a spiritual pinnacle. Each year, up to three million pilgrims descend on Mecca -- the epicenter of the Muslim world -- to seek redemption, to forgive and to be forgiven. Wrapped in white cloth, worshippers embark on the five-day pilgrimage, considered one of the five pillars of Islam.

Mecca is meant to be the bedrock of Muslim unity, with the Hajj lauded as a place where pilgrims shed class, race, and nation.
