Hajj diary: Arriving in Mecca

Post by Mohamed on Sun Dec 07, 2008 10:22 am

It is day one and I am up early. The fact that I am about to make the journey of my life is just starting to sink in.
I have taken a shower and put on the two pieces of plain white cloth, as is mandatory for all those performing Hajj, the annual pilgrimage made by Muslims to the city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia.

"Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar" - God is Great, God is Great. I wake up to the sound of the call to prayer on my second day in Mecca.

It is five in the morning when I leave my hotel to go to pray at the Grand Mosque, but you would never know it was so early.
