Hajj, Pilgrimage to Makka, is a series rituals that are performed in Mecca and the surrounding areas over five to six days. The first is tawaf, where pilgrims circumvent the Ka’ba seven-times in an anticlockwise direction. Muslims believe that Hajj rituals have their roots in the times of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham). Muhammad himself led the Hajj in 632, which was the year of his death. Every year, the Hajj attracts around three million pilgrims from all over the globe.
