Its Hajj season, Hajj for its participants is a beautiful opportunity through its obligatory rituals for Muslims to really focus on their relationship with God and on purifying their souls. Through totally submerging yourself in Hajj and its experience you have the opportunity to change your perspective, life and enhance your spirituality. 

For anyone interested in glimpsing how Hajj looks and feels I would recommend this book. Photographed over three Hajj seasons Reem Al-Faisal, a Saudi Photographer I really admire, has produced a book which shows the diversity and unity of this ancient ritual that has been performed since the time of the prophet Abraham. She captures the emotional and physical realities beautifully, and allows you to sense visually its experience.
