The Hajj is an experience like no other. Millions yearn to go on pilgrimage every year, a “few” lucky ones manage to. The “few” number well over two million this year and photos of this year’s hajj have enchanted many.
Here are our picks on the best ones that we came across so far.
From across all ages

The umbrella hat has become a must-have for pilgrims
Hajj this year came in the midst of peak summer, but torrential rain poured upon pilgrims as they reached the city of Arafah
What a capture

Tears of Arafah!! As the sun will rise in its brilliance on the Magnificent day of Arafah… So too do the hands of the Hajis rise… towards our Beloved Allah!! One of the best days of the year..forgiveness unlimited!! The day when shaytaan stands rejected and humiliated!! Allah draws near to the earth… Cleansing all ..like they were at birth!! Tears flowing..hearts imploring…servants begging!! Sweltering heat but no1 cares..all are asking and asking.. The young..the old..the strong…the weak All gathered at 1 valley..the pleasure of their Lord they seek.. Our Lord…forgive us ..forgive us..we have sinned in abundance. Ya Allah…accept the duas and pleas of our hajis at Mina ..Arafaat Muzdalifah..Makkah and Madeena Tayyebah And make us from amongst them in the near future inshaAllah!!! لبّيك اللهمّ لبيك!! Million heart's only 1 voice …….. " Labaik Allahuma labaik,labaika la sharika laka labaik, inna l'hamda wannemata laka walmulk laa sharika Lak " " ﻟَﺒَّﻴْﻚَ ﺍﻟﻠَّﻬُﻢَّ ﻟَﺒَّﻴْﻚَ ، ﻟَﺒَّﻴْﻚَ ﻻ ﺷَﺮِﻳﻚَ ﻟَﻚَ ﻟَﺒَّﻴْﻚَ ، ﺇِﻥَّ ﺍﻟْﺤَﻤْﺪَ ﻭَﺍﻟﻨَّﻌْﻤَﺔَ ، ﻟَﻚَ ﻭَﺍﻟْﻤُﻠْﻚَ ، ﻻ ﺷَﺮِﻳﻚَ ﻟَﻚَ " Forward, if possible, let everyone read this verse. May Allah protect our hujjaaj over the 5 days of hajj and give them the opportunity to await the dawn of Arafah, Ameen. Oh ALLAH, and for those of us who have not been invited to be YOUR Honoured Guests this year, let us be among the names that will be recorded to be YOUR Guests in the near future أنشالله Ameen. #Hajj #Hajjdiaries #hajj2019 #hajj2019? #Hajj1440 #hajjwithcii #myhajj #hajjwithcii #Arafat #rahmah #mercy #forgiveness @mjappie ??

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ، قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ ﷺ: يَقُولُ اللهُ : أَنَا عِنْدَ ظَنِّ عَبْدِي بِي، وَأَنَا مَعَهُ حِينَ يَذْكُرُنِي، إِنْ ذَكَرَنِي فِي نَفْسِهِ، ذَكَرْتُهُ فِي نَفْسِي، وَإِنْ ذَكَرَنِي فِي مَلَإٍ، ذَكَرْتُهُ فِي مَلَإٍ هُمْ خَيْرٌ مِنْهُمْ، وَإِنْ تَقَرَّبَ مِنِّي شِبْرًا، تَقَرَّبْتُ إِلَيْهِ ذِرَاعًا، وَإِنْ تَقَرَّبَ إِلَيَّ ذِرَاعًا، تَقَرَّبْتُ مِنْهُ بَاعًا، وَإِنْ أَتَانِي يَمْشِي أَتَيْتُهُ هَرْوَلَةً. Hazrat Abu Hurayrah RA narrated that The Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Allah the Most High said, ‘I am as My servant thinks (expects) I am. I am with him when he mentions Me. If he mentions Me to himself, I mention him to Myself; and if he mentions Me in an assembly, I mention him in an assembly greater than it. If he draws near to Me a hand’s length, I draw near to him an arm’s length. And if he comes to Me walking, I go to him at speed.’” [Sahih Al- Bukhari] ? @moaath_alyahya
