Photographer's Note

Pilgrims who complete the Hajj consider it one of the greatest spiritual experiences of their lives. Many Muslims regard the Hajj as one of the great achievements of civilization, because it brings together people from around the world and focuses them upon a single goal: completing the Hajj.

The Hajj rituals have a deep psychological significance for Muslims. The pilgrimage is usually a very profound experience for those who participate. When life is lived according to the precepts of the religion and the mind is in a suitable condition, the pilgrimage can spiritually transform the individual.

A believer is required to make the pilgrimage at least once in his or her lifetime. A devout Muslim's whole life is directed towards this spiritual goal all of life becomes a pilgrimage. A Muslim who can do this pilgrimage is expected to do so.
