It is performed annually and is obligatory only for those who can afford it financially and physically. Muslims perform the ritual in the month of Zil Hajj which is the 8th month of Islamic Lunar Calendar and between dates 8th and 12th. After performing Hajj, Muslims celebrate Eid ul Adha! The rites of Pilgrimage were first explained by the Holy Prophet (Saww) and later preserved and taught by scholars to new generations.

The most beautiful sight on Hajj, you can witness is Muslims setting aside their differences and coming under the umbrella of unity. They do not look at each other with different perspectives, rather appreciate them for coming all the way from their countries for one purpose. Such a feeling is worth millions of dollars and can only be achieved once you enter the holy place.

Hajj renews your purpose of life. Those who come with empty hearts, return with filled hearts. During the pilgrimage, you meditate, meet different inspiring individuals, listen to amazing soulful sermons and focus on yourself; all these factors contribute in renewing your purpose and relive your personality which you lost during the way in trying to follow the worldly matters.

Islam teaches us to let go of our ego and make us humble in various ways. The ways may be hard or easy depending on the stamina, strength and nature of an individual. The ultimate result is achieving humility. When you are performing Hajj, you see people sleeping on the ground, eating on the ground and no matter the rank everyone sits alongside in the sermons and listen to the message of Allah. These acts promote humility.

Among the things that are prohibited when you enter the Ihram is staying away from anger, fights or anything that provokes you. When a person observes this behavior continuously and 24-hours, they start building a habit and as a result, they achieve the state of Tranquility, which is an important aspect of Muslim in faith.
