The Hajj is a holy pilgrimage to the sacred city of Makkah. It is one of the five pillars of Islam and is a duty for all healthy and financially able Muslims to perform this pilgrimage if they are able to. The Hajj consists of specific rituals that must be performed in accordance with Islamic teachings within a period of five to six days. The rare experience of performing Hajj coupled with the short time to perform it and the large crowds can make for a confusing trip if one is not properly prepared.
This Hajj chart was created to help those intending to perform Hajj, or even those who have had the privilege in the past, to develop an idea of the rituals and process of performing Hajj.
