Hajj is a fundamental principle of Islam that offers Muslims the opportunity to exercise high principles, values, and objectives. The Arabic meaning of Hajj is defined as the intention to go to a revered place. From a religious perspective, Hajj can be defined as the intention to go to the Sacred House in Makkah to worship Allah in a prescribed manner. The pilgrimage signifies the Muslims movement to the Kaa’bah in Makkah to please Allah (swt). This sacred site represents ultimate truth and justice and is the nucleus of the Islamic world. “Behold! We gave the site, to Abraham, of the (Sacred) House saying: ‘Associate not anything in worship with me; and sanctify My House for those who compass it round, or stand up, or bow, or prostrate themselves therein in prayer. And proclaim the pilgrimage among men; they will come to thee on foot and mounted on every kind of camel, lean on account of journeys through deep and distant mountain highways.'” (22:26-27)All believers who are physically and financially able must perform the Hajj at least once in their lifetime.
