Hajj is an annual pilgrimage to Mecca and is associated with the life of Islamic prophet Muhammad. 

 Mecca was the birthplace of Muhammad and is regarded as the holiest city in Islam.

 The tradition involved thousands of Muslims travelling to Mecca for the week of the Hajj in order to undertake a series of rituals. It is a mandatory religious duty for Muslims that must be undertaken at least once in their lives, for all those fit and able.

In Hajj,The pilgrims shave their heads, perform an animal sacrifice and celebrate Eid al-Adha. The reason for the animal sacrifice is to represent the task Ibrahim was asked to undertake by Allah. 

Ibrahim - also known as Abraham - had to sacrifice his son to prove his obedience to God, but upon taking a blade to his son Allah provided a goat to be sacrificed instead.In commemoration of this, animals are sacrificed and the meat split into three parts. One third is donated to those who are needy, the second third to relatives, friends and neighbours and the remainder is shared by the family.
