Hajj is a yearly meet of Muslims across the world. Every year crores of Muslims around the world participate in the pilgrimage to Mecca. Mecca is the place of the birth of Prophet Muhammad who is the final Prophet of Islam. Muslims from BC 15 are the followers of Prophet Mohammed.

The history of Hajj goes back to the era of Prophet Abraham (Ibrahim in Arabic) by whom the generation of Arabs have started. As the Quran and Bible sates, it was the order of God, to leave his wife Sarah and Son Ishmael in Mecca. Per order of God, Prophet Abraham, has left his wife and son at Mecca.

They were having some dates and water with them. Nearby there were no houses. Wife had asked Abraham -Why are you leaving us here? Prophet Abraham replied, -It is the order from Almighty-. Then she also supported it whole heartedly. When the water had finished baby Ishmael started crying for water. Wife Sarah ran between the Hills Safa and Marwa in search of water. She could not find any water. At that time, baby Ishmael (Who later became Prophet) has kicked his foot to the land. As a miracle of him, clean water came from there. When it was become like a flood. Baby said to the water, -Zam Zam(Stop, Stop). So the cannel has got the name Zam Zam. There is not even Single River in Saudi Arabia. Still today, the water has been supplied to entire Saudi Arabia, from Zam Zam cannel. For the memory of wife Sarah who ran in between Safa and marwa hills, every year Hajj visitors run in between those two hills.

Hajj has been spectacular meeting of crores of Muslims and performing the Hajj together with the sky reaching voice of slogan -God, I have answered your call-.
