Hajj reached its climax

Hajj reached its climax

Millions of Muslims gathered at Mount Arafat to observe a major part of the rituals.

On Wednesday, Pilgrims stand shoulder-to-shoulder in prayer asking God for forgiveness for themselves and their loved ones. 

Mount Arafat is the point where Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) delivered his final sermon 14 centuries ago calling for equality and unity among Muslims. 

The day when the pilgrims assemble at the site is known as the Day of Arafat. 

It precedes Eid al-Adha or the Feast of Sacrifice, which will be marked on Thursday after the pilgrims descend from the Mount. 

The Hajj is obligatory for any Muslim who is physically and financially capable of performing it.

It is noteworthy; a significant part of the Imam Khomeini’s messages and statements on the subject pertains to the revival of the Abrahamic and Mohammedan (PBUH) Hajj pilgrimage.
