Hajj is a journey with a special purpose. The pligrimage to Makkah, which almost every Muslim will do is called Hajj. Evey Muslim who is fit and can afford it is expected to go on Hajj at least once in their lifetime.

Before going on Hajj they make special preparations including making sure that their family is taken care of whilst they are away and preparing themselves spiritually.

Packing for Hajj is very different from packing to go on holiday. One important thing they will take is a ihram for men this is two white, unsewn pieces of cloth. One is tied around the waist, the other is put over the shoulder. For women it is a long white dress and head covering.
