Pillar 5: Where do Muslims Perform Hajj (Pilgrimage)?
A Muslim completes the rituals of Hajj (pilgrimage) at 4 locations, all in close proximity to one another: Mecca, Muzdalifah, Mina and ‘Arafah. However, before pilgrims can begin Hajj in Mecca, they must cross points of ihraam. Sh. Abdullah Oduro identifies the different places where ihraam begins and the actions that are prohibited once ihraam is initiated.
