PilgrimageStreaming Video - 2006
Every year, millions of Muslims journey to Mecca to take part in the Hajj, the fifth pillar of faith-a sacred duty that transcends race, nationality, and even time. This program captures the day-by-day events of one such pilgrimage, including the ritual of tawaf, the performance of wuquf on Mt. Rahmah, the overnight stay at Muzdalifah, the symbolic stoning of the Devil in the valley of Mina, and the festival of sacrifice. Footage of the holy city of Medina, the ancient battlefield at Uhud, and the changing of the embroidered cover on the Kaaba is also included, as well as detailed historical background on Islam and its prophet, Muhammad.
