According to the center’s website, it kicked off on Monday, August 24, and will run for a week.

It aims to raise awareness about the spiritual journey and its objectives and teachings.

Hajj is performed from the 8th through the 12th of the lunar month of Dhul-Hijjah, starting on September 2 this year.

Hajj activities include turning around the Ka'aba, the most sacred Islamic site, seven times counterclockwise to show unity among believers worshipping Allah, the Arabic word for God.

The pilgrims also walk seven times between the hills of Safa and Marwa.

All able-bodied Muslims are religiously obliged to perform the Hajj pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime.

The teachings of Hajj aim to remind Muslims that they are not joined together on the basis of color or race, but on the basis of belief in God and His Messenger, the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).
