The iconic journey of every Muslim’s lifetime, past and present united. Makkah

The annual pilgrimage to Mecca is one of the world’s largest spiritual gatherings. It happens over a five-day period from the 9th through the 13th in Dhul-Hijjah, the 12th month of the Muslim lunar calendar.

Every year, more than two million Muslims make this pilgrimage to Mecca. To prevent a colossal logistical nightmare of crowd control, every Muslim country has a hajj quota of 1,000 pilgrims per million inhabitants, or 1 percent of its population. Indonesia, the world’s largest Muslim country, sends 200,000 pilgrims for the Hajj, followed by Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. According to the Religion News Service, last year some 12,000 American Muslims made the pilgrimage to Mecca. A spokesman for the Saudi Arabian embassy in Washington, D.C., said that this has been a consistent number in recent years.
