Hajj Season

December 3, 2007

Another Hajj (pilgrimage) will soon be upon us, insha`Allah.  I pray that all hajjis will have a safe journey, a blessed Hajj, and a safe return.

This also means that Eid al-adha will soon be upon us.  It will be close to Christmas, and I’m sure that many non-Muslims will confusingly assume that Muslims have a “December” holiday every year like Christians and Jews.  This, of course, is not the case, and we should try to clarify the nature of our lunar calendar for them.
