Eid Mubarak and Hajj Mabruk!

The Boston Globe is at it again with their pictorial coverage of Islam’s most celebrated rituals! The traditional prerequisite shots of pilgrims circling the Kaaba creating a blurred photo-effect are augmented with plentiful photos of Muslims climbing to and praying at Mount Arafat, Noor Mountain Zamzam water collection systems, modernized campsite accommodations, Saudi military parade stills, and an inside view into a new light-rail metro line.

Lucky enough not to fall on (botched) International Burn a Quran Day, this year’s Eid al-Adha for some was observed on November 16th and other ardent moon-sighting observers November 17th, marking the end of Hajj and commemorating the willing sacrifice of Prophet Abraham. In addition to the staple Boston Globe photojournalist essay, here is a round-up of some auditory-tantalizing Hajj Stories:

1. Two South Africans Cycle to Hajj in Al Jazeera, Arab News, “Capetown to Mecca” by Cyclelicious.
2. Over 13,500 Chinese for this Haj

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. No room for terrorism in Islam: Haj sermon by Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al Sheikh of Saudi Arabia

Merry Eid y’all!

*The picture selected from the BG photoshoot was done so because it closely resembled my favorite photo from BG’s Eid ul-Fitr series, which is below:

  1. Fantistic image from Hajj.
    Thank you Boston Globe.
    That is a breath of fresh air,
    after getting used to all the negative Muslim images day in day out.
