Hajj. The largest annual congregation in the world. Almost 3 million people gathered in one place. People of different races and ethnicities striving towards a shared goal of getting closer to their Lord. Everyone eagerly anticipating their great moment - and then comes yours.
An electric feeling in the atmosphere as you enter the Haram for the very first time. The cool marble floor beneath your feet. The warm air against your skin. Your heart begins to beat faster and faster as you approach the inner courtyard of the Haram. People are rushing past you just as committed. A few more steps and you stop dead in your tracks. There it is. You stare in awe as your eyes finally meet it.
Immerse yourself in a journey like no other as you discover your true spiritual awakening.
Pictures you’ve seen, videos you’ve watched, stories you’ve heard. None of them have truly done it justice. Standing majestically before you, so familiar yet so different, adorned in its black cloth and gold lining, is the centre of the Islamic world. The object you’ve been praying towards your whole life. The ka’bah.
