PostSubject: In pictures: Muslim pilgrimage or Hajj   Wed Dec 19, 2007 10:28 pm

More than two million Muslims from around the
globe have gathered around Mount Arafat near
Mecca in Saudi Arabia, the high point of their
annual pilgrimage.
The day-long station at Arafat symbolises
Muslims' wait for the day of judgement.
They spend the day praying.
Male pilgrims wear a simple uniform of seamless,
two-piece, white garments called the Ihram,
which also signify their state of purity.
The pilgrims make a sea of white as they stream
in their thousands onto the plain of Arafat.
For many, the pilgrimage is the fulfilment of a
life-long ambition. All Muslims capable of making
the journey are duty-bound to do so.
One of the VIPs invited by the Saudi government
this year is the controversial Iranian President,
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, on his first pilgrimage.
