Each year in the 12th month of the Islamic calendar, Muslims, poor or rich, white or black, will be one. Wearing the same cloth, doing the same ritual. No difference. No one is better and No one is worse. All praying and kneeling, submitting to the One and Only. Praying for the oppressed, for the weak, for the hungry, for the sad, and for the sick. This very special islamic ritual is Hajj (the pilgrimage).

Malcolm X, an American human rights activist, describes the sociological atmosphere he experienced at Hajj as follows:

"There were tens of thousands of pilgrims, from all over the world. They were of all colors, from blue-eyed blondes to black-skinned Africans. But we were all participating in the same ritual, displaying a spirit of unity and brotherhood that my experiences in America had led me to believe never could exist between the white and the non-white. America needs to understand Islam, because this is the one religion that erases from its society the race problem. You may be shocked by these words coming from me. But on this pilgrimage, what I have seen, and experienced, has forced me to rearrange much of my thought patterns previously held"

SubhanAllah... Such beautiful, wise and inspiring words.

If these words have had an affect to your thoughts then share this without any hesitations so others can feel the same.

Spread the knowledge so it will be Sadqa-e-Jaaria (everlasting charity) for you and for me... In'Shaa'Allah.

The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said: “Whoever directs someone to a good, then he will have the reward equal to the doer of the action.” [Muslim 1893]

P.S. The picture is a very old image of Kabah, I just wanted to share the beauty, you do too.
