Hajj 2010

Yesterday marked the start of the Hajj, the annual Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca, Saudi Arabia. The Saudi Press Agency said that a record number of Muslims were expected to make the Hajj this year - over 3.4 million anticipated over the five days of the pilgrimage. One of the pillars of Islamic faith, the Hajj must be carried out at least once in their lifetime by any Muslim who has the ability to do so. Pilgrims perform a series of rituals including walking around the Kaaba, standing vigil on Mount Arafat and a ritual Stoning of the Devil. At the end of the Hajj, on November 16th, the three day festival of Eid al-Adha begins around the world. (34 photos total)

Even as a Christian I can see the beauty in these photos.

We should all be very tolerant of each other. This Earth was given to us to share in harmony with our brothers, whether we agree with their religion or not.

@ 26. Similar, but not exactly the same in my mind. In the case of Hajj, Saudi government benefits the most and can charge anything they may like (monopolistic market).
In the case of Christmas and holiday shopping season, private sector benefited the most and may cause some push in economy.

@44, @49...are we looking at the same pics? sure there is a larger percentage of men but i see plenty of women in the group shots....maybe you don't realize what you're seeing...and the "only woman shown in these photos is with a babe at her breast looking after the kids" is standing right next to a guy doing the exact same thing...so your statement really shows your attitude

@Andrew # 44 ...... Every Muslim is allow go to Mecca included the women ... there are half of them women among 2.5 million pilgrims. ou can see women in pic no 13 . what one can do if big picture has not put the more women pics.

Beautiful pics,

Just want to add that BOTH men and women are present in the photos but it seems that it is predominantly men.

If you looks at #30 you can clearly see that men and women are praying together.

Posted by Habeeb November 15, 10 02:38 PM
57.

Andrew, there's PLENTY of women there, actually they are in the same amount of men. You should blame on the guy who took these pictures :)

second of all, probably these pictures were taken by a male, so as part of being religious in Hajj you shouldn't look at a woman so to avoid any lust because in these days u r dedicating yourself to god only, you don't want to be distracted by anything AND SAME THING FOR WOMEN. so he probably was not allowed to go the woman section :)
Always assume the good about people

If you look closely at picture 16 you'll see a women holding her baby, in response to your question about women being allowed in Mecca, yes they are, and they are treated as equals to men despite what you may have heard.

Posted by Yusuf November 15, 10 02:55 PM

@Andrew 44:
there are alot of women of course (pic 16 is showing one).. and they are allowed to do whatever and be wherever men are allowed to do or to be.
the issue is all about that women cover their bodies from head to toes (face and hands are the only allowed to appear)thats why photographers do not shoot women usually, respecting their privacy.

especially in Saudi Arabia, photograph a woman and she will slap you on the face!

Comment # 44 and 49
You're judging the entire event by just one photo... Just fyi, there could be more women in Hajj than men... they just won't be visible because they're in the tents avoiding the heat and unnecessary mingling with crowd...

@BBP... Photo # 25 may be Muzdalifah not Mina... Muzdalifah is where all Hajis must spend the night below the open sky...

There is a mistake in the introductory paragraph: "...At the end of the Hajj, on November 16th, the three day festival of Eid al-Adha begins around the world".

If you look close at picture 30, you can clearly see that there are mixed both women and men....
...I would like to comment though that normally in mosques men are at the front praying and women in the back separately... and why is that? - well, it's to show the women respect to not to stare them at their behinds, since you kneel a lot and everyone should be able to pray without feeling unconfortable or stared at...
..so my guess is that like in pic 30 is some women that choose to pray although it's mixed, since i cant imagine that it would be very possible to be able to separate in these big crowds? And that some women choose to pray in the back or similar of reasons mentioned above.
I might also be wrong, since I'm no muslim myself, it could be that the rules are different at mecca, the holiest place of all, or just that there are no rules such as, or that there are some parts separately for women and men and some mixed...
I used to live in Sweden, and more or less only know about islamic life, what media showed. Since moving to a muslim country ( Tunisia) I have experienced islam and muslim people so much more diffrently.... welcoming and varm people, believing in a religion of love. I myself don't understand this musts of five times of daily prayers and some other things, but I can really respect and understand people who believe.

Thank you for these wonderful pictures! Eid mubarak to all believers!

About the same set of pictures every year ... This is getting quite obsessional, isn't it ? :-)

Posted by Yogi November 15, 10 05:54 PM

It is really amazing to see that even after some 1400 years after the death of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W), Islam is still alive in its full force and the number of people visiting the Holy Kaaba is increasing every year. That goes to say about the strong unshakable faith that Muslims have in their obedience to The One and Only One God- Allah and His messenger- Muhammad (May peace be upon him and his purified progeny)
Thank you for the amazing photographs and the tour of Hajj

To those who don't know what this event is about: Muslims emulate Prophet Abraham's actions. It was here he had left his wife Hagar and the infant son Ishmael all alone in the unpopulated desert on God's orders. It was here the miraculous fountain of Zamzam originated when the infant kicked the ground out of thirst. It was Abraham who built this cubical structure with his son Ishmael. It was around these places he had obeyed God's order to sacrifice his son Ishmael. God loved Abraham's obedience so much that he ordered everyone after him to emulate these actions and made it an annual international convention. All the male pilgrims wear a two-peice white garment symbolizing the equality of everyone regardless of wealth, race, ethnicity, culture, etc. It also symbolizes that on the day of Judgment, everyone will be gathered at the same place and will be presented before God for accountability.

#64 in case you missed the paragraph before the pictures, there are 3.4 million pilgrims in Mecca for this years pilgrimage. not 10,000. it is 3,4 million pilgrims of all races and colors, men and women, rich or poor, from every nations, from china to australia, of 2 billion muslims on this planet.

#76 i don't think there's a law or anything like that on apostasy. but from what i've seen and experienced, the most extreme case would be disaffiliation from his/her family. but i guess that's not the answer you were hoping is it?

and btw, thanks to boston.com for another great edition of big picture. brilliant!

Women are there for sure. In fact, women who go to hajj are given the choice to do all the rituals or can ask their brother, husband, father or any other male to perform these for them and they get the same reward while resting. This allows the women to rest if they want and not to struggle and get exhausted in this huge crowd. May ALLAH accept the prayers of all Muslims. Ameen

beautiful pics of course, but way to underrepresent women in them! i know more women that have done hajj than i do men.
don't be misled - women are certainly allowed and required to perform hajj as well if able.
that clock tower is obscene and yet it cannot overshadow the grand mosque and kaaba.

I'm not religious in the least, but I'm struck in awe at these amazing pictures. I've been a little bit jealous that as an atheist, I don't get to go, because just the sheer human experience of it seems pretty mind-blowing, even though I wouldn't be respecting their religion, so, you know that's cool.

I don't know if anybody has brought this up, but if I were Muslim, I would be at the least aesthetically displeased with this giant monstrosity of a hotel and mall complex rising over the the Grand Mosque. Heck, I'm an atheist, and I'm aesthetically displeased with it!

Has there been any controversy about it that Muslims here might be able to comment on?

You wanna know the penalty for renouncing Islam?
It is easy, check the bible :)
Deuteronomy 13 (6,7,8)
13:6 If thy brother, the son of thy mother, or thy son, or thy
daughter, or the wife of thy bosom, or thy friend, who [is] as
thy own soul, shall entice thee secretly, saying, Let us go and
serve other gods, which thou hast not known, thou, nor thy
fathers;
13:7 [Namely], of the gods of the people who [are] around you,
nigh to thee, or far off from thee, from [one] end of the earth
even to the [other] end of the earth;
13:8 Thou shalt not consent to him, nor hearken to him; neither
shall thy eye pity him, neither shalt thou spare, neither shalt
thou conceal him:
13:9 But thou shalt surely kill him; thy hand shall be first
upon him to put him to death, and afterwards the hand of all
the people.

To all those who think ladies are not allowed ... Well I can say there are just as many ladies as men !!! Yup if someone stood there taking a pic of a lady she wud orobably slap them.
Another point is if u don't know the ppl and the religion please do not be so critical ... Experience them with reality and you'll find they are amazing ppl with alot if respect for all race and gender !!
I'm a lady my self guess what !??
I've been to do my haj, my mother, grandmothers,maternal and paternal aunts,sister inlaws, mother inlaws etc as in my entire family has been to Saudi to perform hajj !!!! Seriously don't go according to assumptions, please learn from proper sources and experience us in the better way ... And u will surly realize we at a majority are peaceful ppl who only wish for peace,love and happiness in this world

Beautiful and touching pictures. These speak, show and prove the glory of One God, the Most Merciful. But alas, the Muslims looking so united at Allah's House get un-united and apart when they are out of this sacred house.

Certainly it is sad to see the hotels and malls around the Grand Mosque as these tend to lower the grace of God's house which one was able to see from far away.

My sincere thanks to the one who has taken all these beautiful and impressive pictures.

@ EC (#96): yes there is equality system in Islam.

Even as a non-Muslim I have to respect the devotion and spirituality shown in these photos. I recognize that Islam is more than a faith, its a way of life. In the West where we have strict separation of church and State, Islam embraces the entire culture of the area it is in - for example, the color of Islam is green. Almost all the flags of Islamic countries contain the color green. In fact, the Libya Flag is solid green symbolizing 100% devotion to the religion. This is more than a religion. its a culture all its own.

Freedom and choice are all relative and are to be left for individuals based on their cultural background and for masses based on their collective maturity. However education and awareness enveloped in respect are key to make the best out of them which takes us back to the basic Islamic rights and duties; education, freedom and respect.
That's what happened during the time of the Prophet, he was never reported to punish anyone for leaving Islam, except if he started pausing a serious threat to the community by cooperating with the enemy to cause harm, the equivalent of todays Capital Treason, otherwise, God says in the Quran (18:29) "And say (O Muhammad), "The truth is from your Lord, so whoever wills - let him believe; and whoever wills - let him disbelieve.""
Changing one's religion never happens all of a sudden. It is either they have been believing that all the time but only verbalized it that moment or they have had a change of heart after they have been exposed to a certain influence for a while be that certain media or people. Accordingly and similarly the response to that should be gradual and spaced out in the form of discussions, providing correct information and education. After all that process that could take years just like it took years to get to that change the final "rechoice" is theirs.
The concept of make a choice now or you get killed is simply emotional and intellectual terrorism that totally ignores the human nature of needing time, space and psychological rest to be able to make a sound decision based on knowledge and personal conviction.

WHILE THE MAN HAS TO RUN AROUND FOR THE RITUALS, THE WOMAN HAS A CHOICE IN A LOT OF CASES TO DO IT HERSELF OR MAKE HER HUSBAND/FATHER/SON/BROTHER DO IT ON HER BEHALF AND GET EQUAL REWARD. WOMEN IN ISLAM HAVE MORE RIGHTS AND CHOICES THAN WOMEN IN ANY OTHER RELIGION :)

Thank you for this ,,,beautiful expression of a people bound to their faith. They may have many legalistic applications that could be done away with but for the majority such faith is to be applauded. As far as one renouncing their faith in the Creator and being killed for it today, well that would be wrong as the dictate if from the legalistic old testament writings. Thank you Lord that you fulfilled the law by the death of your son who you sacrificed and shed his blood so that all could live under the new law of love. If one will do unto others as one would have done to themselves then we would all be hugging and loving one another rather than trying to annihilate groups of people we do not understand. Blessed be the Lord and Father of all nations and may His name be praised by all peoples He came as a lamb and will return the Lion of Judah....Allah be praised.

Hii ... I am a Muslim from Saudi Arabia .. Amazing photos .. thanks a lot
I'll Answer some questions: ..
- We Muslims do not spit on black people here ... We respect them, and in fact my best friend of them.and the who spit from Muslims is faaar a way from Islam ! and we disagree with him !
- Pilgrims, half of them women, do not impose on them our custom in dress
It is customary to wear white for all men or women in Hajj
- True ..i m agree with Comment No. 107 about ( the cause of separation between men and women. )
and i agree withe comment No 153 About ( this giant monstrosity of a hotel and mall complex rising over the the Grand Mosque)
- Black Hall. Called the "Kaaba" ... There is nothing inside, except for some jellyfish
Muslims can pray in the Kaaba, sometimes
What's inside the Kaaba? You can see it here!

Posted by Salman November 16, 10 03:10 AM
227.

to #44 & #49:
pilgrimage is one of the the five pillars of islam. a once-in-a-lifetime obligation for those muslims (men and women) who have the physical and financial ability to undertake the journey. it is a form of worship that involves the entire being: body, mind and soul.

and yes women go to hajj every year and umrah all year round. to God, everyone is equal. i'm a woman and i have been there many times. and there is always lots and lots of women.

you don't see women in these pictures because the photographer kindly avoided taking the photos of women out of respect. women do not wish to come in the photos of strangers. personally, i would be upset if some stranger guy takes my photo or by accident i'm in one of the photos! i would make him remove the picture.

@hamari: that's how it's supposed to be, not only by the way they look but also by the way on how they get through the entire process of making Hajj. Yet many more people are craving for more luxurious facilities these days, and getting spoiled with it. Of course I'm talking about those who can afford it. See pic #9, I'm not sure if everybody gets the same facility like that?

I'm 13 and I've been waiting to go to Hajj since I was 5 years old! Just seeing these pictures excites me even more - being with so many Muslims, focusing on Allah, uniting our religion and our people. I can't wait until I can finally go. Masha'allah. Peace upon everyone - Muslims and non-Muslims. (: Express our unity in Hajj.

i was baptised a catholic because i had no choice, i was only 6 or 7 months old at the time.

i really really hope one day that the human race will break free of the medieval mysticism that has restricted and divided us for so long, i do not need religion to tell me how to be a good person, it is instinctual. i long for the day that each person calls themself a citizen of planet earth, not a muslim, catholic, saudi, irish or american, but that we view all as equal and rejoice in the overwhelming beauty of the science of the universe.
all religion is a hindrane to the advancement of the human race.
PEACE!

I wish I can be there..I will..soon in shaa Allah..

in answer to comment 227 by Jan - I cannot believe that anyone can make such a false and incorrect comment. How many christians have been murdered there in Iraq - none before the USA attacked that country. Tariq Aziz, a leading figure in the Iraq regime was a christian. How many 'christians' murdered since USA began this illegal war (against the geneva conventions) less than 10,000. How many Iraqi's murdered by these christian soldiers 1-2 million.....with 5-10 million displaced, internally or refugees, and seriously injured. Total devastation of the country....with little clean running water. Never mind the sanctions which murdered over half amillion children. A price worth paying, said 'Madame' Albright...coz they were children of rag heads...so who cares. Jan do not be an ostrich.

@ 127: By the way the Iraqi Christians were better off before the American invasion..There was many Christians in the government under Saddam..Tariq Aziz for instance, a Chaldean Catholic, who was Deputy Prime Minister and then he became the Foreign Minister of Iraq....Even the founder of the "Ba'ath Party" (Saddam Hussein's party) was an Arab Christian: Michel Aflaq..

I am sure Islam is a good religion.. It is just ashame soo many Islamic Extrimists have decided to involve killing, murder, and death, into the religion.

I hope one day everyone can just respect each others religion and live in peace. There are too many good muslims out there that get brainwashed and favor their extremist brothers when they see an American, British, or Israeli flag burning.

I was in Jiddah during the Hajj and witnessed the faith of the Pilgrams. I was very impressed. I made many great friends and was treated very well.

Yes, there are people of all different races, ages, physical appearance...

But only a few women are pictured (and I know they go, because a friend of mine is there somewhere). Although racism isn't an issue, sexism is, unfortunately. And that's not singling Islam out in particular, all of the big 3 religions have an issue with women.

Lovely pictures other than that.

O God,
We are here to respond to your call for peace and justice for all mankind;
We are here to celebrate and confirm our commitment for submission to your mighty power and will : YOU ARE GREAT! What a wonderful world you have created! what a wonderful blue and green planet you have placed in your solar system, as it works so perfectly in peace in your Galexies!! We are amazed at your creation! Thank you!

We are so small: when we look up, or look down or look at ourselves - so weak - with all our "might"! Truely, you are the ever present, ever lasting, all powerful with knowledge and wisdom to creat, and sustain the universe
as it beats every second in peace and harmony. Before you, I submit myself just as Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and your last messenger Mohammad - your messengers of peace - did. You gave me life, and to you I shall return when my time is due.Forgive me; guide me please! for you are the light of the worlds....

O God, You are great and we are nothing! Thanks for your present to us - our life with all the moments of testing we go through untill we die.

In your name, I celebrate today and every day and every moment of my life.
I love you.
Peace!

In answer to a post above calling the religion evil. I am sorry to say that this statement is total false and prejudice against the most peaceful religion of all. It is the ignorant people who can make and interprate any religion into doing evil. Please do not dis-respect Islam as it teaches respect to all religions and does not differentiate between the two humans due to sex, race, and color. All are equal in the eyes of Allah except the one who is more pious and more close to God.

Thses pics are beautiful.

Why should I bathe at sacred shrines of pilgrimage? The Name of the Lord, is the sacred shrine of pilgrimage.

My sacred shrine of pilgrimage is spiritual wisdom within, and contemplation on the Word of the Lord

The spiritual wisdom given by the Guru is the True sacred shrine of pilgrimage, where the ten festivals are always observed.

I constantly beg for the Name of the Lord; grant it to me, O God, Sustainer of the world.

You're born in a Muslim family, you believe in Allah. You're born in an Hindu family, you believe in Krishna. You're born in an Aztec family, you believe in Quetzalcóatl.

If faith is only by birth, how come I, a white middle-class American-born woman raised in a Christian (Baptist) home, have been a Muslim for the past 37 years? I became convinced of the truth of Islam through talking with Muslims, reading, thought, and prayer. I went on Hajj two years ago and it was an amazing experience, and these pictures bring the memories back. May Allah guide us all thru His Mercy.

RE: 390 - Yogi, I was born and raised in a Roman Catholic family, left the church at 17 to seek my path, began practicing the Buddhism of Nichiren Daishonin at 21 and recently celebrated 30 years of Buddhist practice. To a person who practices a religion, the teachings of that religion should agree with reason, have sound documentation and provide actual proof, i.e. the practitioner should see results in his or her daily life.

For those who 'don't see women' - I sure did. However most of the pictures did feature men. That doesn't mean that women aren't there at hajj in the hundreds of thousands; it just means that the photos that were taken or selected had mostly men in them. Also, many women are dressed in white and may not be distinguishable from men in the far shots.

Posted by Brenda November 16, 10 04:41 PM

If only Muslims followed the true teachings the world would have seen persons at an individual level are model of humility and knowledge, but for reasons out of place here I cannot mention.
Ladies are there and cannot be identified as most prefer white. In Islam woman rights are so sacred and have yet to be equalled by any system.
Since most of the Muslim world is suffering from Natural disasters, internal and external problems would it be possible to impose a donation of 30 Euros per person for emergencies such as the one now in Pakistan. A conference of intellectuals after Hajj hosted by the King for ideas on a the course Islamic world should take to get rid of cruel rulers, self proclaimed ullemas and fire brand militants who are bringing shame to this simple and clean religion which promises equality and respect to one and all. Show the world how Muslims & Jews lived in peace for over 1200 years, the world has little knowledge of Islam, the only thing they know is the Twin Towers, now is the time to introduce Islam in its pristine sense.

Hajj Mubarak to all Hajis. In refrence to the " ZAM ZAM " water in Mecca,wich is a holy water .I would request all vistors to view the following video what a German Doctor has to say about its qualities ,on youtube.


Dr. Knut Pfeiffer: Islam's Zamzam water positive effect on human cells

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcmpI1gsOkI


It was reported in Saheeh Muslim that the Prophet Mohammad (sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam) said to Abu Dharr, who had stayed near the Ka'bah and its coverings for forty days and nights with no food or drink other than (Zamzam): "How long have you been here?" Abu Dharr said: "I have been here for thirty days and nights." The Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam said, "Who has been feeding you?" He said, "I have had nothing but Zamzam water, and I have gotten so fat that I have folds of fat on my stomach. I do not feel any of the tiredness or weakness of hunger and I have not become thin." The Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam said: "Verily, it is blessed, it is food that nourishes." (Narrated by Imaam Muslim, 2473).

Im sure Christianity is a good religion too. It's just too bad they manipulate people to send them money, buy their lavish gold alters and commit every sin known to man. They even murder! But hey you know, while we are talking about bad apples in a bushel, might as well point that one out too.

As a Muslim,I'm protest to Saudi goverment about, they destroyed a lot of historical heritages and castle around Kabaa (Kabe) which are remain from Ottoman Empire and local residents. They made skyscrapers around the Kabaa and they are using Kabaa as "commercial material". All of that skyscrapers are using as "hotel" and residence by "rich arabians"!!!!!
This is an open insult against essential of Islam and Kabaa.

3.4 Million pilgrims with different nationalities, different colors dressed in one color (white) what does it represent? Isn't it equality? WOW this is a great religion indeed. Our Great-great grandfather Abraham, as ive heard from a Muslim friend made a Prayer in this Holy City of Mecca thousands of years ago, saying "Our Lord (together with Ishmael) make this place a City of Peace and Provide the People therein with Provisions (Prosperity). And God did not respond to Abraham meaning He accepted his prayer. The Christians and the Jews believed also to Prophet Abraham, I think we should study our own religion because in Christianity there are so many branches claiming to be the true religion of Jesus. So what is the TRUTH?

@Valerie: The reason why there are less women than men at hajj is not as sinister as you have assumed (Sexism), but rather that Hajj is simply not a safe place for children to be hanging out (thats one of the major reasons why mothers dont end up going, many have to wait until their kids grow up) or that they dont have a close male relative to look out for them there. Keep in mind HAJJ IS AN OBLIGATION UPON EVERY MALE AND FEMALE who r financialy able and healthy to go once in their lifetime.

@ no 357 Valerie...I am a Muslima and I would like to explain why you do not see the women in the pictures. It is not out of discrimination, but out of respect for the women there. In Islam, women are treated in high reguard. We are "pearls" and just like pearls we are to be protected from unwanted stares and words and advances by the general public. This is the main reason, after obedience to Allah, that we wear a veil. And many women who make hajj uncover their faces as a sign of total equality in the eyes of Allah. So the ppl who are taking pictures are asked not to take pictures of our noble sisters out of respect. We do not show our beauty to every Tom, Dick, or Harry at any other time so why would we allow that to happen at the most important event in the lifetime of a Muslima? Just thought you and others might like to know the REAL reason and not some given opinion by a non-believer. Insha'Allah my words are true and strictly for the sake of Allah....May Allah guide those who follow the straight path of Islam.. Amin Amin Amin

These pictures look really beautiful. Muslims following the rules of their religion. Islam and Christianity do not stem from the same beginning. Allah and Jehovah are not the same god. Mohammed borrowed information from the gnostic Nestorian unapproved version of Bible for input into Koran.

These pictures show devotion to instructions. Everything looks perfect from faraway.

Christianity follows faith not earthly works. This is one of the major differences between the two.

I am a Sikh and would like to share an excerpt/translation from Holy Guru Granth Sahib...which preaches equality of all...This verse is written by Bhagat Kabeer. The word Allah is used for the One Universal God.

""First, Allah created the Light; then, by His Creative Power, He made all mortal beings.

From the One Light, the entire universe welled up. So who is good, and who is bad? ||1||

O people, O Siblings of Destiny, do not wander deluded by doubt.

The Creation is in the Creator, and the Creator is in the Creation, totally pervading and permeating all places. ||1||Pause||

The clay is the same, but the Fashioner has fashioned it in various ways.

There is nothing wrong with the pot of clay - there is nothing wrong with the Potter. ||2||

The One True Lord abides in all; by His making, everything is made.

Whoever realizes the Hukam of His Command, knows the One Lord. He alone is said to be the Lord's slave. ||3||

The Lord Allah is Unseen; He cannot be seen. The Guru has blessed me with this sweet molasses.

Says Kabeer, my anxiety and fear have been taken away; I see the Immaculate Lord pervading everywhere. ||4||3||""

786-110-21-52 ASAWWBT: It is indeed an annual MIRACLE that happens in
Makkah Mukarrama, where at one time, one place and one spot, almost 4 million Muslims from all over the globe congregate for the sheer love of their Prophets Ebraheem A.S., Ismaaeel A.S. and their descendent,the last Messenger of Al Mighty God,SWT on earth, viz.,Rasoolallah,Mohammed ibn Abdullah,S.A.W.W.
I have been there twice, but, still long to go there at least once in my life time,AAMEEN. Ba tawwassol-e-Habeeb-e-khooda,SAWW, may Allah SWT grant me my fervent wish and desire.

LOL, @ all those who are annoyed by the lack of "women in pictures"

1-Women usually pray behind men, so it's hard to spot them, yet even some pray along with them for the lack of ability to pray behind them or so

2-Women can wear white or black or so....you would notice that many are wearing white...so to differ between men and women it would need a good eye for that...good luck!

3-Saudi government will most likely ban photographers from shooting pictures with women in them most of the time, and the places that are crowded with women are a no-no to photographing and taking pictures of them

so, yes, keep blaming or claiming or spewing nonsense...in the end you're just trying to convince yourself with an imaginary thought to be happy that you do not join Islam or whatever other reason you want.

Admirable pictures of the annual islamic ritual in which the entire muslim ummah of the world pay obeyance to the first mosque built on Allah's instruction by H. Ibraheem and H. Ismaeel (a s) . The ocassion also commomerate the Zibhe Azeem in which the life of H. Ismaeel (a s) was spared for a later sacrifice on Aashura e Moharram , mentioned in the Qora'an as Zibhe Azeem ( the supreme sacrifice) The ritual makes it compulsory for all Aazemeen e Hajj to circumbulate Khana e Kaabah
which was also destined to be the birth Chamber for the the Prophet of Islam's Cousin , Son in law and Wasi , who was the one and only person graced to be borned inside the holy presinct . May Allah accept the Hajj
of all sincere believers who were privillaged to offer the prayers this year .

The coming of that day: Hadith on Tall Buildings and now Abraj Al-Bait Towers overlooking the Kabba... May Allah forgive us:

`Umar ibn Khattab (Allah be well pleased with him) said: “As we were sitting one day before the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him), a man suddenly appeared. He wore pure white clothes and his hair was dark black—yet there were no signs of travel on him, and none of us knew him. He came and sat down in front of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), placing his knees against his, and his hands on his thighs. He said, “O Muhammad! Tell me about Islam.”

The Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) replied, “Islam is to bear witness that there is no god but God and that Muhammad is the Messenger of God; and to perform the prayer; pay zakat; fast Ramadan; and to perform Hajj to the House if you are able.”

The man said, “You have spoken the truth,” and we were surprised that he asked and then confirmed the answer. Then, he asked, “Tell me about belief (iman).”

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) replied, “It is to believe in Allah; His Angels; His Books; His Messengers; the Last Day; and in destiny—its good and bad.”

The man said, “You have spoken the truth. Now, tell me about spiritual excellence (ihsan).”

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) replied, “It is to serve Allah as though you behold Him; and if you don’t behold him, (know that) He surely sees you.”

“Now, tell me of the Last Hour,” asked the man.

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) replied, “The one asked knows no more of it than the one asking.”

“Then tell me about its signs,” said the man.

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) replied, “That slave women give birth to their mistresses; and that you see barefoot, unclothed, beginning shepherds competing in the construction of tall buildings.”

Then the visitor left, and I waited a long time. Then the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) asked me, “Do you know, Umar, who the questioner was?” I replied, “Allah and His Messenger know best.”He said (Allah bless him and give him peace), “It was Jibril. He came to you to teach you your religion.” [Sahih Muslim]

Beautiful photos. It's a shame, however, to see so many people sheepishly following a set of rules that denegrates women as second class people and wants to force the whole world to believe what they believe (just like every other religion).

The photos are not beautiful because of Allah, or any other god. They are beautiful because the world is beautiful and some people can capture this on film.

Let's have peace among peoples without the hatred and selfishness of religion. Make of life what you find of it and stop living for an imaginary afterlife.

The pictures in your article are just amazing. It reminds me of the Hajj I performed, when the Mina tents were razed to ground by a massive and uncontrollable fire. The tents, where we were camping were far off from the seat of fire. We were confident the fire would be controlled before it reaches our area. When our own tents were engulfed by the RAGING FURY of NATURE, it made an INDELIBLE BELIEF in me, that man has "no control" to FACE the FURY of NATURAL CALAMITIES i.e. HAIL, WIND, WATER, FIRE, EARTHQUAKE, etc.

"Women usually pray behind men"

WHY?

Why can't women usually pray along side men or in front of men?

Why do women have to walk behind men in Saudi Arabia?

If old men can last without getting exhausted encircling the Kaaba, then surely women can last.

@489. The pictures are taken in the way that only man are seen. Hajj is done by both men and women. Everybody is wearing white that makes it even harder to distinguish. White is worn just to show that allah has created everyone equal, regardless of color and money.

Contessa@61 does not know what she is talking about.

My dear you must learn to separate Saudi Arabia for the Muslim religion!
They are not one and the same. While Saudi Arabia gives very little
rights to women, Islam is the first religion to allow women to inherit,
own property and do business.

Dear you must also learn to separate fact from fiction. In other words
do not believe everything you hear!! Especially from the media!!

May Allah (an Arabic word for God, in case you didn.t know) have mercy
on people like you who are full of hate without knowing the truth.

What a great photos ! They just make amazed in front if this glorious scenes, and it will much more great if you been with those people - shoulder by shoulder !
It realy shows the deep strong faith of muslims even around the world, because this religion doesn't look for any nationalities .
May Allah don't drive us out of this grace by our sins .

According to " women in Islam ", we can just do a fair compare between muslim women and non-muslim women and between how do the two communities of muslim and non-muslim treat them to know what is right .
And just take a look on how do muslims treat their mothers, and how the prophet Muhammed - peace be upon him - treated his wives, and how have women created the Islamic history next to men - not under them or behind them - !
And, thank Allah, we have the great benifit from this, the peceful base of community and the good health and hearts .
By the way, it's wrong to call Islam obly by " Saudi Arabia ", KSA is just an arabian country wich has it culture and community, but however it's true that it has been built on Islam grom the begginig, and it's going on for that . So we mustn't put any mistake of any country that is muslim or of any muslim man or woman in face of Islam .
And Islam has it people to show the real view of it .

We don't hate you . We just want you to know the real right thing .

Peace be upon you :)

To Contessa61 - Why you asked? Well considering both you and I are women, we don't have the same mentality as men - you agree right? This is confirmed by science and biology. Women and men are not exactly equal no matter what anyone tries to say: phychologically, physically, mentally. By all logic it's an IMPOSSIBLE claim. What I want to ask, is why does a woman have to prove herself to be exactly like a man? Being a woman shouldn't she indulge in and enjoy being exactly what she is? It's not about reaction, it's about reality.

So please learn about Islaam before just thinking we're against woman. I mean I AM A WOMAN and an American, if my religion discriminated I would not go along with it. If Islaam discriminated, the largest group of 'converts' to the religion wouldn't be women. It's an entire farce when it's said we're against women.

And for the record that last point, just so you know, men and women both encircle the ka'bah at the same time. If you take some time to look up on those things, and learn Islaam from its basics of its belief you'll surely discover some new things such as the difference been Islaam - and different peoples cultures. Take that leap of faith and really look into it, you might be surprised

الحج طقوس سنوية التضحية العظيم (التضحية الكبرى) 17 نوفمبر ، '10الحج عام 2010 صورة كبيرة
صور رائعة من الطقوس الإسلامية السنوية التي الأمة بأكملها المسلمين في العالم صلاة في أول مسجد بني على تعليمات من الله وحضرة حضرة ابراهيم اسماعيل (عليه السلام). بهذه المناسبة يذكر أيضا التضحية العظيم الذي حياة حضرة اسماعيل (عليه السلام) كان يدخر لتضحية في وقت لاحق يوم عاشوراء محرم ه ، المذكورة في اعجاز كما Zibh ه العظيم (التضحية العليا). طقوس يجعله إلزامي لجميع الذين يرغبون في أداء مناسك الحج لطواف خانا ه الكعبة التي كان مقدرا أيضا أن يكون تاريخ غرفة للنبي ابن عم الإسلام وابنه في القانون واسي ، الذي كان شخص واحد فقط وشرفت أن يولد داخل منطقة القدس. قد تقبل الله الحج من جميع المؤمنين الصادقين الذين كانوا محظوظين لأداء الصلوات هذا العام في الكعبة في مكة المكرمة..

Great pictures, but would like to correct a statment there, it says on picture 15 " A Muslim man visits the Hiraa cave on Noor mountain late on November 13, 2010 during the annual Hajj. According to TRADITION, Islam's Prophet Mohammed received his first message to preach Islam while praying in the cave." .... this is not tradition, for muslims, it's a reality and a believe.

As for those who are criticising or commenting badly on Islam, I'd say you should read about it before doing that, not all believers reflect their real religion " and this applies to all religions". I'm a Muslim, I believe in, and respect, Christianity and Judaism, I might disagree but would never comment badly nor criticise .... That's what the real Islam tells and teaches us ....

It is very sad that contessa61 uses this show of solidarity and equality (150+ countries) as a venue to spew ignorance. Proud to be american she said as if americans are not taking part as equals with everyone else.

This type of thinking needs to go away and we all need to learn from and embrace the show of humanity and love that is expressed during Hajj.

islam started with very few people. and look now. mashaAllah. and look how it enrages hateful comments from hateful people.

[Shakir 48:29] Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and those with him are firm of heart against the unbelievers, compassionate among themselves; you will see them bowing down, prostrating themselves, seeking grace from Allah and pleasure; their marks are in their faces because of the effect of prostration; that is their description in the Taurat and their description in the Injeel; like as seed-produce that puts forth its sprout, then strengthens it, so it becomes stout and stands firmly on its stem, delighting the sowers that He may enrage the unbelievers on account of them; Allah has promised those among them who believe and do good, forgiveness and a great reward.

Allahu Akbar!
This shows that inspite of the vociferous and virulent tirade against Islam and Muslims by those who can't wait to show their hatred, Islam is growing and will stay forever...it has since its inception 1500 year ago and it is Allah who protects it, not people, so it cannot disappear. Remember the Mongols who came and completely destroyed all that was Islam and its books, records and scholars then became the dedicated ones to bring on the resurgence of Islam. So, not to worry, Islam will stay....it is Allah's Promise.

He looked down upon the sadness of men and saw in their hearts how they all wanted to be in the world on their own. God is achievable only after the age of the assassin - the age of man. And all those that kicked the dogs and took away the freedom of the children were cast into the Satan's Pit - never to be thought of again.

I am a muslim, but I think humanity is the first religion, even before Islam,so if we cant treat people with justice, there's no way we can make Allah happy , no matter how many Hajjs we perform. And by people I mean all human beings..
The basic definition of Islam is "Trust in God and do the right! "" all other things come much later !!!!

I share the sentiments of many by sisters and brothers -- Muslims are by Allah's will a people of peace. They are meant to be the best of mankind in goodness and piety. That challenge is still out there -- let's pick up the mantle brothers and sisters and be Allah's helpers. Terrorism and cowardice have no place in our belief system. Those who think that they can harm our faith by doing aborrent acts against innocent people should know that they will fail. Allah will not allow mischief makers and murderers to be successful -- that's 100% sure.

Once again, a sight to behold and inspire! However, one sad thing that marred this beautiful set of images was the two shots of armed forces personnel showing off their prowess! They stood out like a fly on a wedding cake! This is not the place nor the time to display any military might by anyone because everyone in the Holy land is in the humble presence of the one and only all-mighty power - Allah SWT. The members of this crack unit mean nothing before HIM because even they need His protection!

Please try and remove them if you can because they are polluting the sanctity of the rest of the photographs!

Keep up the good work!

Nice pictures from Boston Big Picture as always.

ALLAH literally means THE GOD. It's not that the Muslim god's name is ALLAH. Insult ALLAH, is the same as insulting THE GOD!

The is a lack of women pictures because Muslim women do not like to be photographed. This is a stark contrast to the other cultures of making women the OBJECTS of the advertising industry.

Photo 3: Correction, it's Arabic calligraphy not Islamic calligraphy. The calligraphy in itself has got nothing to do with Islam.

Photo 5: Nice development for having the train service. But am I hearing it right that most of it is reserved only for ARAB MEN. As always. a cruel ARABIC culture which it OUT OF ISLAM. The Arabs have a very nasty habit of associating all of their culture as islamic, when it's completely the opposite.

Photo 7: Never understand why they always need such a military parade for such a noble event. Surely the end of the days are coming!

Photo 8: Correction again, it's not Saudi workers. These workers are most likely Bangladeshis.

Photo 18: While praying at Arafa' is great, please there is no need to put yourself in such peril climbing heights like that. God never ask that!

Photo 21 and 22: Worshiping of rock, object or any physical being for that matter is IDOLATRY, thus is TOTALLY OUT OF ISLAM.

The Arab society and the westernized society are SO ALIKE. They define right and wrong according to ONLY what they wish. That's why they are always fighting with each other. I'm Asian.

For comment no #630

If there is no God, then there is no you. The answer is not as simple as it seems. It goes deeper. Think about it.

And as for the pics, great ones, but again, differentiate between the actual teachings and what are not teachings but made up as teachings of Islam (bida'ah) as shown in certain pics.

God is the Greatest - Allahu Akbar . These pictures tell us men and women who submit their faith in The One and Only True God, to come and visit Ka'abah, The Holy Sites that Prophet Abraham (A.S.) built. This event every year on Hajj truly marks the works of all Prophet of God since Abraham (A.S) until Muhammad (S.A.W) to give God's message to all human for guidance in "one and only one religion - the religion of God". There is only one religion of God, every prophet tell this religion to his people, only Iblis or Devil then made ignorant people looks away and made his/her own religion which is different from what the prophets told. Read the real "God's Words" and hope for guidance that all prophet teach, Amen.

No doubt the pictures are great but look at the response of muslims in general ( Mashallah, allaho akber). Just bragging about religion. Why should one be proud to be a muslim. We have not been able to establish a single viable state where people can live freely with dignity and justice.They are far behind in education and pursuits of knowledge and think it is their divine duty to conquer the whole world.

Men and women should be treated equally.

Why do muslims not protest honor killings? child brides? polygamy?
Is it because Mohammed condoned these acts?

Why do women have to walk behind a man in SA? Why do they not get to drive a car? Why do they have to ask their husbands permission to get a job?
Why do they have to pray in the back? Why does their father get to decide who they should marry?

Why are there large protests for Qaran burning and mohammed cartoons, but no protests for India train attacks, Russian children being slaughtered and airplains being flown into buildings in the name of Allah (God).

Pictures are amazing which reminded of my Hajj Pilrim with my wife in 2002, with my sister in law and their husbands and 3 couples. We had a great time during the Hajj. I pray to Almighty Allah that all the muslims get at least one chance in their life time to perform HAJJ. Also I wish that some sense prevails in those fanatics who kill innocent people in the name of Jihad by suicide bombings.

DIVINE MESSAGE
And who is better in speech than he who invites (people) to Allah, and does righteous deeds, and says: "I am one of the Muslims."
The good deed and the evil deed cannot be equal. Repel (the evil) with one which is better, then verily he, between whom and you there was enmity, (will become) as though he was a close friend. (Qur'an 41:34,35)

Jon Dough, You said suppose there is no God/Allah.

Why suppose? Think.

If I tell you that my house just came up and that there were no architect/engineer/worker to put it together, would you accept? Your logical thinking will not let you accept that claim. If that is so, how can you not accept that the whole thing that you see around you, the earth, the moon, the sun, the water et al, came into being because there was a creator/one who put the law into place for them to BE. Those who really think, God will guide them to HIM. So I suggest to you, Jon Dough, THINK. Use that beautiful faculty God has given you, impartially, logically and without any prejudice. And if God Almighty shows you the light, do share it with me. May you be rightly guided.

Nothing more that I can add to all who have talked about the beauty of the pictures. Have been there twice and have felt blessed. My only concern would be that instead of each picture having a caption, " a muslim pilgrim" praying or whatever, it should just say, "a pilgrim." Obviousoy every one there is a muslim. There are no non muslims there. SO the captions should just say pilgrims performing what ever rite it is that they are performing.

I am currently analysing whether Islam offers the true and correct way of leading your life in all aspects, the answer is a clear "Yes". BUT please believe me Muslims are the worst people to be with !!
Please give an example of a Muslim country where you could show me a true implmentation os Islam.
Whats the point of chanting "Subhan-allah" and "mashallah" here by seeing your pictures, while at the same time your neighbour is dying of hunger and you wont help them, what happens to you when you kill your own daughters in the name of honour? Sadly, you guys are the worst example of any human race so far!
Can you name a quality that can prove you to be the best people in the world or the closest to Allah..just name any please...

SunhannAllah! It is truly amazing! As a response to "Just-A-Human", If I judged Christianity, or Judaism, by the same measure you are judging Islam, they would fair far worse than your comments about Islam. Look to their history, now and them, and tell me that do not see carnage, hunger, cruelty, arrogance, etc. Think upon it, my friend, and be more kindly in your words of that last great revelation of God Almighty.

Thanks for letting us see the most beautiful pictures of most astonishing rituals of Hajj. Every year about thirty million muslims from all over the world gather in Makkah and Madina to perform the sacred rituals . considering the size the cities , it seems impossible for 30million pilgrims to be accommodated yet it happens every year I would call it a miracle...Hajj , certainly is world.s largest religious congregation , exhibiting unity , faith and decipline. It surely is a miracle in it self.. May Allmighty allow us to participate in this pigrige. Amen

I just want to reply on "Just_a_human". Ok, if you want to look at the beauty of ISLAM please do take my advice: Do not judge ISLAM based on some Muslims people!. Just refer to the truth sources about it. Read through them and read about the ideal muslims people in old ages. You will then realize how great it is!
That is not to say, good muslims are not exist today, Yet, it is hard to realize the beauty of ISLAM and the ideal muslims through the bad picture reflected in some untrustful media today.

I am responding to one gentleman who wrote-
" BUT please believe me Muslims are the worst people to be with !!
Please give an example of a Muslim country where you could show me a true implmentation os Islam."

You had attacked individual Muslim also Muslim Country too. I do not know whether you are a Muslim or not because you name is " A human being"
If you are a Muslim than take blame yourself first if not then please visit a true Muslim who are following Islam perfectly; you might meet some bad guy in your life. There are a lots of very good Muslim around the world who are doing best to change the world but unfortunately our Government are corrupt and Military Powers from the World (so called Democratic Country) supporting them so that no True Islamic State can evolved. There are international agenda to block Islamic State, Insha Allah Islam will prevail one day- may be not too long.
Do not worry about so called Muslim brothers or sisters. Good Muslim can not harm another human being or even animal. May be we did not reach that level yet but we are struggling. May Allah guide you to love another fellow; do not hate but LOVE.

(Answer to 837 Just a human)

Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) is the best example of Islam.

Alhamdulillah i am a Muslim and do agree that Islam is the best religion in the world which gives the Lesson of Humanity i must say that the believers of Islam are doing Good enough at their level, there are always some bad peoples in every religion which destroys the image of religions.

Regarding Islamic countries i do agree that they are not exactly acting as per Islamic Laws but if you see the history Muslims were the world powers.
The Non-Islamic world powers are regularly trying to destroy the image of Islam because they are always afraid of this religion and of the believers of this religion, they are succeeding because our political leaders are their agents, it doesn't meant that Muslims are Bad.

Dear, i believe that if we start improving JUST ourselves the world is going to be Muslim and with Best Humanity because Humanity is the first priority of Religion Islam.

Thanks.

my remarks are for 'just_a_human", who can feel the message of Islam but is turned off by the "muslims" he sees .
You are a privileged soul to have gotten so far...dont let the behaviour of a few deny you the salvation which your soul obviously deserves.
read the Koran in english or any language you understand and then make the decision.Our existance is an individual soul answerable to Allah as an individual.So forget evrybody else you are one on one with your creator in this matter.
And by the way all of us agree you cannot be a muslim untill you are a good human being.
READ THE KORAN YOU WILL GET ALL THE ANSWERS YOU WANT.
JUST REMEMBER TAKE EVERY WORD AS DIRECT COMMUNICATION FROM HIM TO you. try it and pl do let us know

Fantastic Photography, Brought back all the memories, I have sat in ghar-e-hiraa twice in total seclusion and silence, definately a spiritual calmness in there, and gave Adhan on top of Jabal Rehma how it echoed of the nearby mountains, then joined the sea of Hajis fulfilling the various rites and thought to myself 'look how many people love you Allah' a reply came to my mind 'then think how many Allah loves'. Everything is there, acts of kindness and selfishness, you have to prepare your mind for what you want out of this experience. We are on this planet only once, and we will have to stand alone in front of the almighty one day, we must try not to hurt the other with our words and actions.

To : JUST A HUMAN

Islam is a complete religion .
When you talk about honour killings this is not part of ISLAM . People have mixed tribal and cultural beliefs in their version of Islam.

Read the Quran and the life of our Beloved Nabi S.A.W and you will see the true ISLAM.

jazak Allah, very nice pictures with great efforts.
But pl listen to persons who have asked the muslims to practice lives according to Sayings of Quran o Hadith (hadees). The life of our beloved Prophet (PUBH) is role model for us.
Do not be worst any where in the world and become role model for non muslims becaz the non muslims are not satisfied with their faiths. It ois only Islam which will finally satisfy them becaz it is near to nature Alhamdo Lillah. The muslim where he is should be role model not dual character. So pl become PRACTICING MUSLIMS, READ QURAN and UNDERSTAND THE MESSAGE IN IT, You will get successful life Inshaa allah

Why do some people find it absolutely necessary to always voice distasteful/judgemental/ugly commentary on the internet? These are beautiful photographs about a sacred pilgrimage. Thats all. Why not discuss the actual photographs- shape, form, line, texture, LIGHT, composition etc. It's actually gettting boring and frustrating having to always read something negative. These are not photographs about protests and government; about abuse and poverty. The photos depict millions of people from Africa, Asia, Europe, America etc coming together to perform a PEACEFUL mission. Why not be positive and refreshing when you comment? There is a time and place for debates and arguments and now isn't that time.

Asalamualaikum:

10-20 years ago,This great interesting pictures would not be seen by the people in any country of this world; but now the scene Islam has been unvieled,
thanks to the internet world; the ISLAMIC TRUTH will
certainly be known day by day.

I would like to comment on Just- Human, Muslim or the
follower of Islam, are not all good people, same as
the follower of Christian, Bhudist, and other religions. Bad or good is the issue which we are all
faced every day, it is not the Islam religion, but the
follower. I am Muslim and faced many bad Muslim, cheated, Back biting etc. I cannot say Isalam is bad,
but that particular guy is bad, whether he is the
follower of any religion.

Most of Muslim used to say Muslims are brother, I do not think so, I cannot be brother with bad Muslim.
The most important thing is in Quran (the Holy book
of Islam) says 'INNAMAL MUNINUN NA IQWAH" which means
MUMIN (the true beleiver) are brothers; We cannot be
brothers with Muslim robbers, Muslim killers, Muslim
terrorist.........etc. I must strongly say that
ISLAM IS PURE AND BEAUTIFUL, IF WE follow the way of
MUMIN. Manu from Thailand.

these are amazing pictures and amazing blessings for Muslims as well as for all those who take inspiration out of this "biggest event in the world with amazing coordination".

I only have one comment for boston.com and that is, the spelling of Makkah is MAKKAH and not Mecca. Its been officially spelt this way and its one of the two holiest cities for Muslims as well as for anyone else so it needs to be spelt the way it should.

Kindly correct.

I just returned from Hajj. I wish Boston Globe put a camera to see the trash and poverty. Piles of garbage in the dirt and people sleeping on top of it. When policecars or buses come in and park, people sleep against the parked wheels on the ground, on top of it, under it, so the cars and buses cannot get out. Bathrooms overflowing and the stench. You cannot call those "bathrooms". The stifling heat. We had to wear a mask the whole time. People were passing out, ready to die. The tents are moldy inside and dirt floor. Try to understand the conditions with 30 million people. These are nice pictures, but they don't reflect the experience I just had.

To the anonymous comment #973. In one way you are correct. I saw first hand the disparity between rich and poor, it's so much more blatant than in countries like India and Pakistan.
I felt like taking pictures of beggars taking the discarded sleeping bags in Muzdalifah and dustbin workers eating from a plastic bag that is opened on the ground.
I may be doing a diservice to Muslims saying this - I honestly don't want to put them off from going. Haj needs to experienced and absorbed. There are 101 good things to come out from your experience and a few that are bad. Don't be disheartened but please remember that Hajj was not meant to be a holiday..

when i see these pictures i see one thing in all of them-unity and uniformity. Allah wants us to unite together - look how everyone no matter wherever they belong to, are standing in uniformity, wearing just two pieces of cloth that they will take with them down the earth and praying to him. No where , not even in any army/military of any country will you see so many people so united and uniformed like these people who have left their belongings, their countries, their families and they are here just pray to Allah who is the greatest of All.

I would like to respond to Just_a_human too, I agree with JehangirR that every soul is answerable to Allah SWT alone. In regards to the honour killings, only the worst of muslims would act in this way, if your daughter has done something shameful she will be held accountable on the Day of Judgement, As JehangirR says the Qur'an has all the answers ignore what you hear about killing non-muslims and getting 72 virgins, no terrorist can justify their intentions without quoting the Qur'an and it says "Whoever kills another one without justifiable cause, surely he is killing all of humanity. And whoever saves the life of another one, surely he saves the lives of all of humanity. [Sura Al Ma'aidah: Ayah 32]" If people were to act this way surely they would help their starving neighbour and not kill their daughters.

Dear Boston Globe, you did a great job with the pictures!
i just think you should not have included the pictures with Saudi soldiers. They seem out of context-since fighting is not allowed in Makkah, nor are pilgrims allowed to carry arms. The soldiers were not even in Ahram. Maybe they were pictures from another time and place and got included in these marvelous hajj picture.

Posted by amber November 19, 10 11:57 AM

Hajj is a great prayer, a great obligation to every Muslim.
In Islam each prayer has 2 major basic factors:
1: Ritual factor;like we pray 5 times a day.AND IN HAJJ like Tawwaf,Saei,stay in Araffat ,Mashaar al Haram,Mina,sacrifice of Halal animal.
2:Political factor;like we are strongly emphasized to pray 5 times in mosque in Jamaat,where we have the chance to meet other fellow muslims and discuss well being, issues,problems,and solutions of each other ,and a sincere brotherhood is created in the society through the Jamaat prayers.Once a year,in Hajj as Pilgrims are collected from all over the world,it is internationally tremendous occasion, extremely important and emphasized that these pilgrims discuss their problems of every nature with each other more than the blood brothers,and come out with the solution of them.UNFORTUNATELY THE EVIL POWERS OF THE WORLD KNOW ABOUT THE SECOND FACTOR MORE THAN THE HAJJ PILGRIMS,SO THEY USE THEIR INSTALLED SLAVE ESTABLISHMENT SAUDI KINGDOM,NOT TO ALLOW THE PILGRIMS TO EXERCISE SECOND FACTOR. SAUDI GOVT NOT ONLY PUNISHES THE PILGRIMS SEVERELY,BUT ALSO THE SAUDI MULLAHS HAVE GIVEN FITWA THAT ISLAMIC POLITICS IS HARAM DURING HAJJ.SO ONLY ONE FACTOR OF RITUALS IS BEEN EXERCISED BY PILGRIMS.
The evil powers reward their faithful slaves who are kings ,sheikhs,or presidents,to enjoy the most joyous lusty lives,and then kill them like Shah of Iran or Saddam.While the Muslim people are being made the most oppressed and deprived in the world.

Some of the greatest Hajj pictures I have ever seen. Kudos to Boston Globe for a fantastic job in telling the story of the Hajj in these pictures.

I only wish the Muslim ummah around the world would become as united as the Hajj pilgrims in these pictures.

Why is it that only an occasion as the Hajj is able to bring Muslims together? At al other times and in all other places in teh world, the sad reality is that Muslims are disorganized and divided everywhere. We must take the Hajj as an example and as a symbol of hope that Muslims from all over the word can be united at all times not just for the 5 days of Hajj.

I lived there in 1968 for a year. I have visted the place a few time since then The last Haj I performed was in 2002. The place has changed completely. Two yeras ago, during Ramadan I found spiritual satisfaction but as usual did not like the commercialization of the place and treatment by the Saudis. A classic example now is the train this year which only the Saudis can use. Why this discrimination. I am surpised that Muslims do not protest at the Saudis behavior but get up in Arms for simple stupid reasons if some thing happens in US or Europe.

Alhamdu lillah, Hajj is a beautiful experience.Hajj is not about the hardship you experience in terms of cleanliness etc.Hajj is about your IBAADAT. Surely we can bear a little discomfort for a few weeks for ALLAH( swt). after all NABI MUHAMMAD (saw) bore so much of pain and hardship for his ummah.Insha Allah may ALLAH(swt) give sabr to those who complain during hajj and may their Hajj be accepted. AMEEN

"Stoning of the Devil"......!?
Actually, we do not stone devil. This is a ritual action based on following the prophet Mohammed peace be upon him who was following the father of the messengers of ALLAH; Ibrahim (Abraham) peace be upon him who was stoning Devil when he came to deviate him from acting as per ALLAH commandment, at the same locations we do stoning now.

Great pictures. Brings back cherished memories and renewed desire. You have to experience it and I wish this upon ALL my family especially my two sons and grandson. Just a few years ago we could not imagine seeing such pictures let alone watching Hajj live, subhanallah! Thanks to modern technology so much has changed but we still have a long way to go. How can anyone say there is no God or associate Islam with terrorism is beyond me? This is the recipe for World Peace in my opinion. If the super powers would humble themselves and reflect I think we can live in Peace insha'allah.

First time I have seen Hajj pictures, I have been few times there for Hajj and Umra. It is a total miracle every year that millions of people gather at one place at one time and perform the rituals simultaneously without any major incident. Now to have some of the problems are likely at any place in the world where there is such a crowd, even in united states of america.
So praise be to God who looks after everyone in this long journey.

i understand wat u experienced was really painful but u need to understand one thing is that managing a 30 million people at a time is not a joke it need lot of staff for security and arranging purpose. moreover, every year hajj pilgrims increased by certain amount. Inshallah near future saudi government will take necessary steps to provide comfortable facilities for the hajis.

How beautiful the pictures are! They are fresh in my memory; I performed the Hajj last year, praise be to Allah. When you perform the various rites with complete humility, it is bound to touch your heart profoundly. If, in addition, you keep in mind the past and present history of human kind, you will surely find yourself even more moved. You will wish for an end of all wars, all inequality, all deprivation. You will wish for every person everywhere to receive his or her due share as Allah actually wishes. A way should be found to bring all world leaders together and have them perform the Hajj. May be that will finally bring around the much sought world peace and prosperity. May Allah help us all!

In response to 1047 "man created god not the other way around" plse reason the following:
- How is it that man can't create one living cell while God the creator can?
- How is it that man can't prevent his own time for death when God the creator decides his time?
- How is it that man has no control on the whole universe while God the creator can?
- How is it that man gets sick and can't cure himself while all the cure and health comes from God the creator?
- How is it that if God wanted a man to have difficulty in breathing the air during an asthma illness while man can't help himself during his attack?
- How is it that man can't bring down one drop of rain while God the creator can?
- How is it that the pure instinct of man call for its Cretor when faced by calamities?

Typically....the non-Muslim responses to these pictures have been negative. Why are you so annoyed by an event that takes place so far away from you? Are you envious?

Personally, I had a wonderful experience and time at this Hajj and would urge my fellow Muslims to go at their earliest opportunity...It is remarkable, humbling, and genuinely uplifting.

Why are non-Muslim responses to these pictures often negative ?

"A Pakistani court has sentenced to death a Christian mother of five for blasphemy, the first such conviction of a woman and sparking protests from rights groups Thursday. Rights activists and minority pressure groups said it was the first time that a woman had been sentenced to hang in Pakistan for blasphemy, although a Muslim couple were jailed for life last year.
"The blasphemy law is absolutely obscene and it needs to be repealed in totality," Human Rights Watch spokesman told AFP. "It is primarily used against vulnerable groups that face social and political discrimination. Heading that category are religious minorities and heterodox Muslim sects," he said. Last July, two Christian brothers accused of writing a blasphemous pamphlet critical of the Prophet Mohammed were shot dead outside a court in Punjab."

A religion of peace you said ?

Masha ALLAH
Dear 1168, your comments are welcomed. However, why do we prefer rule of law in human societies? If it is to provide enabling environment for growth and development, then why should we negate divine guidelines enabling an enabling environment; meant for purifying individuals approach towards nature; and which has nothing to do with individuals’ impure thinking and doings.

The images are beautiful, and I do believe many thank yous are due to the talented photographers who captured them. It takes work to make images as lovely as these, and a dedication most people are ignorant of. Also, thank you to the Big Picture for posting them for all the world to see.

Hope everyone had a wonderful hajj!

so many muslims praying as one ummah and muslims being persecuted around the world!! Why is Allah swt not granting our duas? We need to look inside ourselves...is it our amaal?? Hajj is among the pillars of islam but is there something else dictated by Rasool Allah also which is quite evident from the life of Rasool Allah! Muslims today are a picture too and not a living movie. We know we have the best and its nowhere to be practised even in the smallest region on earth! Why? why these Muslims return and become how and what they were before Hajj. My Haj alhamdolillah changed by life after return and it continues to improve. I wish the same for all those who have been for Hajj and all those who will go for HajJ.

These pictures are to me both beautiful and saddening. The beauty comes from seeing so many people that recognize that the hole in their heart can only be filled by God, and the sadness from the realization that they are trying to fill it with a god that does not wish to be with them in the afterlife. I'm glad my God is always there with me, through good times and bad, and that He loves me enough to let me reign with him in His kingdom, after all else passes away. :)

Response to yogi- #1208. It is blasphemous to speak ill or write ill about any prophet, be it Muhammad, Jesus, Moses, Abraham, Noah, or any of the other prophets. This has nothing to do with free expression for Muslims or non-Muslims. The latter are expected to respect the traditions of their host just as much as Muslims must respect the laws and traditions of the countries they travel to or live in as a second home. It is unacceptable and un-condoned when civil servants in the courts of Muslim countries to pick and choose among the Sharia laws or apply them unequally. The meek and trodden get punished, whereas the affluent and powerful get a free pass! And yes, Islam is the religion of peace, but it certainly does not turn the other cheek. Neither does Christianity or Judaism for that matter; history stands witness to the fact. The question is how peaceful is Christendom, which is led by the United States, or how peaceful is its ally of the Judaic faith?! Finally, is it truly the Muslims who invaded Christendom and bombed much of its land and shattered countless lives therein? Iraq, Afghanistan, and Palestine are a stark reminder of brutality and subjugation.
My apology goes to the pilgrims whom I should have first complimented for completing their divinely-ordained obligation, and for their return home cleansed and purified.

@ Rajab A Alkhazmi #1339 :
First, blasphemy doesn't make sense : don't you think Allah can be judge and take care of the punishment by himself ? Do you think any punishment given on earth weights anything compared to the punishment that will be given by God ?

Second, I'm not saying that non-Muslims should not respect the traditions of their hosts. I'm just saying that these traditions are intrinsically violent since blasphemy and apostasy can be punished of death. So no, Islam does not appear to me as a religion of peace.

Al Salam Alykoum, Happy Eid to all Muslims,

I’m from Saudia , I agree with most of your comments, however I’ll try to clarify and explain few things :
“Photo 5: Nice development for having the train service. But am I hearing it right that most of it is reserved only for ARAB MEN. As always. a cruel ARABIC culture which it OUT OF ISLAM. The Arabs have a very nasty habit of associating all of their culture as islamic, when it's completely the opposite.”

ANSWER : regarding the train, this is the first year operate with a capacity of 35% and the Saudi government avoid to test it with other nationality due to the fact of two reason ( as far as i know) (1) Politically, if any one get harmed or injured from certain nationality they will blame the government” why they test it with our pilgrimages”.(2) lack of language, the majority of other countries pilgrimages are old and it’s difficult to communicate with them. and some don’t follow the guide instruction since each group ( Hamlah) has to follow the timing schedule, and it is also difficult for the Saudis too to do it for the first time particularly for huge number.

YET, I DON’T LIKE THAT YOU GENERALIZED WHEN YOU SAY “ARAB CULTURE WHICH IS OUT OF ISLAM” IF YOU KNOW THE ARAB CULTRE WELL YOU WILL NOT SAY IT. now you are generalizing like non muslim when they met a bad Muslim they will say Islam is bad. I’m sure you had that bad experience with some arabic.

Photo 7: Never understand why they always need such a military …. etc

Answer : If you search and find what happened in Hajj year 1407 H ( 1987 G ) you will find the answer, basically some pilgrimages want to show their political point view during the Hajj. see the following link

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBmF_Sh-AmU


"Photo 21 and 22: Worshiping of rock, object or any physical being for that matter is IDOLATRY, thus is TOTALLY OUT OF ISLAM."

STRONGLY agree with you also photo 18.

Overall we are glad to be Muslim and these minor things are not big issue and I respect your opinion.
sorry for my poor English.

thank you for the wonderful pictures. I pray to go there myself . It is sooo expensive and so many restrictions. It should be made easier to get to instead many travel agents ect. are making lots of money that is not what it is all about. Who can afford over 5 thousand dollars PER person? And why are people saying bad disrespectful things? Whenever people think about God no matter what religion it is good. That is why i love islam because we are taught to be loving and tolerant of others. allah (God) will be the judge of the differences between any. We are taught to have love for any people who wish to worship God this message is repeated several times in the quran.

What steps to visit that place?? Is it possible to help me ??????????????????????

Posted by Charlos Jone

The pics are really beautiful. Yet, we forget to respond to to the feelings of brother Charlos Jone (#1348).

Dear Charlos, the actuality is much more beautiful than these pics. Unfortunately, the access to non-muslims is restricted, which is not recent. Our Prophet (peace be upon him) did this about 1400 years ago to keep away everything and everyone "impure" from the House of Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala). Please do not understand me wrong when I say "impure" because anyone not believing in Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) and his last Messenger and associating anyone or anything with Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) is considered "impure" in Islam and, thus, prohibited to enter the city. The only and best way is to learn about Islam and, in sha Allah, Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) will guide you to the right path. This will, in sha Allah, pave the way to experience the beauty yourself.

May Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) keep your thirst of visiting these places for so long and make this thirst a cause for you to find salavation. Ameen

Thanks Charlos for appreciating the Hajj photographs, as Faizan explained to you there are some basic requirements to be followed to go there. The first and foremost thing is one has to be a muslim. This is like a passport. You need a passport to go to one country to another. Similarly the passport here is Kalima - that is your intention to become a muslim has to be pronounced and that you should believe in one God, i.e. Allah Subhanawatala and Allah's teachings, tought by our Prophet, Muhammed (Peace be upon him). Hence you are welcome when you follow these simple principles. May Allah bless you for your good intentions. Ameen.

Hello Charlos
Your desire has been beautifuly explained by a very learned person in Islam who has a regular programme on Sky channell 826.He says that like all countries have contonement areas where only special people can only be allowed in,such as military zones etc where even the true nationals of that country are not allowed in for very good reasons.
Simmilarly makkah and madinah is a contonment area where only muslims are allowed to enter irrespective of their colour,status or nationality .
The criteria to visit such a place is to declare that you believe in one God,the unseen who has no partners and that Muhammad peace be upon him is the last and final messanger of God.
You can then visit the holy places and witness the miracle of God.

HAJJ is really jehad to be within this big number of people @ one time in one place ,you have to do it when you are still young and in good health to have the strength to do all manasek properly,i was there ,we were doing tawaf on the roof most of the time & it was very crowded also we walked for long distances in mena in order to reach jamarat and mena camping so you have to prepare your self

Assalamunlahi Alaikum, May Allah SWT reward your efforts in putting together these amazing, Islamic thought provoking pictures. And may Allah SWT reward the Government and people of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia headed by the custodian of the two holy Mosques, for making it possible for the millions of muslims to visit the kingdom for Umrah and Hajj every year. The kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been providing efficient and convinient facilities for pilgrims every year. May Allah continue to guide and protect the leaders of the Kingdom. I am deeply touched by the physical developments at the holy mosque of Kaába and the Masjid Nabi. It is indeed the pride of every Muslim. May Allah SWTcontinue to guide and protect our Ummah. Jazakumulah akhairan.

Why do you have to be a Muslim to go to Hajj? Agreed that it will benefit a Muslim a lot more than a non-Muslim, but why have that condition? Besides, does having a Muslim name automatically grant you a Muslim "passport"? Saddam Hussein performed Hajj, but was he a Muslim that deserves the blessings of Hajj, and the honor of having performed Hajj? Are the corrupt rulers of SA really worthy of this honor? (Only God knows.) Besides, didn't the Prophet allow Christians to worship in the mosque?
Please provide some examples from the life of the Prophet where he refused non-Muslims to enter a mosque.

To those who insist only "Muslims" can enter certain Islamic sites, please provide a reference from the life of the Prophet in which he forbade "non-Muslims" from entering Mecca/Medina, or a mosque. I challenge you to provide a definition of a Muslim--you will either bring the "People of the Book" into the fold of Islam or exclude Muslims from it. Finally, when Jesus falls from the heavens back to earth, on what basis will he or will he not be allowed entry into these places?

but i feel the actual cause to bring all muslims in one haram in one ground and in one dress in one place from whole world to realise muslims there is no diffrece for language colour dress or nationality you alll are like a body just one umma .
but we all gethered there but we didnt get the actual lesson from it we just go perform hajj and com back after that again we diffrenciate each other so this is main cause today although we are one umma but divided in many diffrences

This is a place of worship that requires certain rituals y all those who are there performing the Hajj ,example white clothing,continious a cleaning of one's body,believing in One God,and believing in Quran.I do agree that the hajj for hypocrites has no meaning,this is clearly mention in Prophet saying.
If you can bear the responsibilities of being a Moslim take the first step.

To Addas (comment 1545)
Makkah & Madinah (called the Holy land) theses are entered by muslims. Islam is founded on 5 pillars; Hajj is one of them. so why do Hajj without doing the others. for example fasting can be done any where; why not try to fast?? I'm saying this because one of my coworkers (non-muslim) asked me about the purpose of fasting and how muslims do it. the next day he was fasting but he could not complete the task.
You don't have to have a muslim name in order to be one. you only need to know the facts and what is required to be one. Saddam was a muslim and blessings and mercy are from Allah (God).
Almost any place in the world you can go to a mosque (masjid) and observe the prayers and speak with the Imam (the person who lead the prayer).
In the prophet era in Medina there was no Christians and he allowed none muslims in the mosque because it was his headquarter too.
The Holy land became a Muslim only area after the death of the prophet (SWAS)

Dear 1545,

You have to be a Muslim to go to Hajj because it is part of our religion. Why would non-muslims want to go to Hajj if it's not required in their religions?
Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam, it is required by every sane, adult, and able to afford it Muslims to be performed at least once in their lives.

You have a good point about "Saddam Hussein". He doesn't deserve that blessing but not all Muslims are good just like not all Christians and Jewish are good!
This can't be measured, it is in our book "Qura'an" and we should follow the instructions.

And yes, prophet Muhammad allowed Christians to pray in mosques, but in Hajj it is not only praying, there are sequence of processes we have to do.
There are some verses from the holy book "Qura'an" prevent non-Muslims to enter Mecca:
1 - "They have certainly disbelieved who say, " Allah is the Messiah, the son of Mary" while the Messiah has said, "O Children of Israel, worship Allah , my Lord and your Lord." Indeed, he who associates others with Allah - Allah has forbidden him Paradise, and his refuge is the Fire. And there are not for the wrongdoers any helpers. They have certainly disbelieved who say, " Allah is the third of three." And there is no god except one God. And if they do not desist from what they are saying, there will surely afflict the disbelievers among them a painful punishment."

2- "O you who have believed, indeed the polytheists are unclean, so let them not approach al-Masjid al-Haram after this, their [final] year. And if you fear privation, Allah will enrich you from His bounty if He wills. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Wise."

If a non-Muslim did every single step in Hajj, it won't be counted because he missed the most mportant factor which is Islam.

I hop I could help, and there are a lot of prophet mohammed saying "Hadith" and I can't find the one I need in English.

Masha-Allah. Seeing these wonderful images brought back memories of when I performed this farz with my wife three years ago. It also brought tears to my eyes. This is truly the spiritual centre for all mankind. May Allah Pak accept the Hajj performed by the pilgrims this year. May Allah also shower his Rehmah and Barakah on Muslims all over the world. May he also grant the Hajj to those that have'nt been there. Ameen

Thank you for putting together this pictures.

I did Hajj , Al hamdolelah ..

My advise to all young people : 1st .. do it ASAP ..
No . Of piligrems is ver very huge (and it gets more and more every year).. Hajj needs power and patient ..

2nd : for next 10 years will be nice weather ,,,, plan it within this to have at least good wither in crowded ..

عظمة الا سلام والمسلمين تتجلى في مثل هذا اللقاء السنوى الذي يلتقي فيه المسلمون لباسهم واحد وتوجههم واحد ودينهم واحد وقبلتهم واحدة لا فرق بين غني وفقير ولا صغير أو كبير أو شاب وشيخ ولا ملك أو رئيس ورجل عادي ... تجمعهم شهادة أن لا إله إلا الله وأن محمدا رسول الله يدعون ربهم خوفا منه وحدة وطمعا في جنته ..هذا هو الاسلام الحقيقي وهكذا تعلمنا من ديننا الاسلامي الحنيف ، لا عدوان بل سلم وسلام وطمأنينه ، نفوس جمعتها المحبة في الله وحدة ، وتتفرق على المحبة لتنشر الامن والسلام والوئام.. تصور أربعة ملايين مسلم اجتمعوا على هذا الصعيد الطاهر وفي أيام معلومات ويتكرر هذا المشهد كل عام ليظهر للعالم حقيقة الاسلام والمسلمين أما ما يحدث حاليا في أفغانستان والعراق والسودان والصومال وباكستان من اعتداء على النفس البشرية التي شرفها الله وأكرمها وحض على حفظها ... فهذا بعيد كل البعد عن الدين.. ناهيك عما يحدث على أيدي الصهاينة في فلسطين المحتلة حيث يتعرض البشر والحجر والشجر إلا أسوأ عدوان من أناس يدعون أنهم متدينون ولكنهم اجتمعوا على كره أنفسهم وكره العالم وكره أصحاب الارض ..لا هم لهم إلا طرد أصحاب الارض وقتلهم وسلب حقوقهم ، فهل يقوم العالم المتحضر بانقاذ الفلسطينيين واعادة أرضهم وحقوقهم السليبة لهم .. سننتظر لنرى والامل معقود على أوباما وزعماء الاتحاد الاوربي الأحراء الذين لم يتأثروا بالدعايات والادعاءات الصهيونية؟؟؟ .. ...
