Hajj 2016: A Sacred Journey of 21st Century Through Mecca & Medina,360 Degree View

Exclusively @

Nearly two million Muslims have gathered in the vast Saudi plain of Mount Arafat for the most important ritual of the Hajj, an annual pilgrimage that re-enacts the actions of the Prophet Muhammad from more than 1,400 years ago.

Worshippers from more than 150 countries converged at the 70-metre hill at sunrise on Sunday, some 15km from Mecca, for “wukuf,” a high point of the Hajj which all pilgrims must attend in the mid-afternoon.

Wearing two white, unstitched pieces of cloth for men known as the “ihram”, and any loose-fitting clothing for women, the pilgrims climbed steps built into the hill where the Prophet Muhammad gave his final sermon.

In what looked like an unbroken sea of white the pilgrims marched to the top, reciting prayers and supplications.
