Hajj is the 5th pillar of Islam.
It is a pilgrimage in Makkah and its surrounding areas:
Every adult Muslim must perform Hajj at least once in their lifetime as long they are financially, physically, and mentally able.
Hajj takes place in the Islamic Month of Dhul-Hijjah aka Month of Hajj (the 12th month of the Hijri Calendar)
Hajj rituals take place between the 8th to 12th of Dhul-Hijjah
Hajj originates back to Prophet Ibrahim (as) to commemorate his willingness to sacrifice his son Prophet Ismael (as).
On the 10th of Dhul Hijja is Eid-al-Adha where Muslims all over the world slaughter an animal and distribute its meat to the poor.
