Hajj is obligatory upon every Muslim adult, male and female, whose health and means permit. In the words of the holy Qu’ran, it is obligatory upon “those who can make their way there”. It is not obligatory on children, though they may accompany parents on this spiritual journey.
Over the past fourteen centuries, countless Muslims — men and women from the four corners of the earth — have made the pilgrimage to the birthplace of Islam. In doing so, they fulfil a most basic obligation which is one of the five pillars of Islam. In Hajj, they join millions of their co-religionists from across the globe and connect with that constant stream of the faithful who pay homage to the House of Allah. Muslims, who constitute one fifth of humanity, share a common aspiration to perform, at least once in a lifetime, the pilgrimage to Makkah, called Hajj. They also wish to perform Umrah or the lesser pilgrimage. The former is obligatory and performed in the Muslim month of Zil-Hajj. Umrah, on the other hand, is optional and can be performed in any part of the year.
