Performing Hajj - or Pilgrimage is the 5th Pillar in Islam and we should all perform it at least once in our life times - so get saving you pennies and cents peeps!
People from across the globe gather at the plains of Arafah to ask for Allah's Mercy and forgiveness for ones sins.
As your hajj is accepted you return free from sin as the day your mother bore you!
"Jabir reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “There is no day better in the sight of Allah than the Day of Arafah. On this day Allah, the Almighty and the Exalted One, descends to the nearest heaven, and He is proud of His slaves on the earth and says to those in heaven, ‘Look at My servants. They have come from far and near, with hair dishevelled and faces covered with dust, to seek My mercy, even though they have not seen My chastisement.' Far more people are freed from the Hellfire on the Day of Arafah than on any other day.” [Ibn Hibban]
And what about those not going for Hajj? Well...
