Hajj is an Arabic word that means “to intend a journey.” Hajj is a yearly spiritual journey that Muslims must perform at least once in their lives to exhibit their devotion and faith in Allah (SWT). Hajj is the fifth pillar of Islam, along with Shahadah (declaration of faith), Salat (daily prayer), Zakat (alms giving), and Sawm (fasting in Ramadan).
