Photographer's Note

Anyone who is Muslim can perform the hajj, regardless of their origins. Every affording and healthy Muslim must perform this pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime. During the Hajj, Muslims recall what happened to important people in their history as well as try to be spiritually closer to God. Muslim and Western researchers trace these traditions to Muhammad's own performance of the Hajj. It is a way for Muslims to commemorate Muhammad's actions.

At the moment I took this shot from Mount Arafah, more than 5 Million Muslims from every nation in the world are gathered in Arafah.
