Ever encountered a huge mass of a single religion that gathered at one place? Rarely we would have seen that kind of a view. And to make that view visible, I've gathered something for you today.
The obsolete scene where around two million Muslims have gathered near Saudi Arabia's Mecca for the peak day of the annual Hajj pilgrimage. From dawn to dusk on Thursday, the 31st of September 2017, the crowd kept visiting Mount Arafat to spend the day in supplication and contemplation.
Muslims believe that Prophet Muhammad delivered his final sermon on the granite hill more than 1,400 years ago. "We hope that Allah will forgive our sins, and we hope to have a new start with our God," Khaled Ahmed, a 47-year-old pilgrim from Egypt, told the Associated Press News agency. In his sermon, the prophet is believed to have called on his followers to repay their debts, beware of Satan, perform five daily prayers, fast during the month of Ramadan and give to charity.
With such words, let's take a look at this rare view of people that gathered in prayer at one place.
