Hajj is one of the most important events on the Islamic calendar, as it represents the pilgrimage made by eminent Muslim prophets. All able-bodied Muslims are expected to make a journey to the holy site of Mecca, located in Saudi Arabia. Nearly two million Muslims will make the journey, providing they are financially able to do so. While there, they will perform prayer around the Kaaba, spend a day at Mount Arafat, and take part in ritual animal sacrifice.
