In a couple of days the ceremony of Haj will occur in Mecca! It's one of the five pillars in Islam! This Islamic ceremony is a must on adult muslims who can do it & afford it at least once in life!

It's a ceremony that was ordered by God (Allah) to follow the steps of the father of all the prophets, Abraham (Peace upon him)

Shortly I can say that Haj is special for those who participate in the ceremony & for all the muslims in the world, because the second feast in Islam comes after finishing this worship! It's usually an atmosphere of faith, joy & charity...

What I like most about Haj is that it's the occasion where rich & poor, old & young are equal, no signs of differences, just the same way God looks to all people!

"Not to mention the four days off to enjoy the family, celebration & eating sweets" :)))

Blessed Haj for those who are making it this year & a nice season for all!

Thanks bro..... Eid Mubarak in advance, like Ramadan, most of the people fast for 9 days, from First of Dhul Hajj (Islamic Month) and sacrifice a goat or camel to commemorate the willingness of Abraham (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his son Ishmael (Isma'il) as an act of obedience to God, before God intervened to provide him with a ram to sacrifice instead.
