Accommodations for the Hajj Pilgrimage
The Hajj is a once-in-a-lifetime Pilgrimage to Mecca for some Muslims. As the Islamic calendar is based on the lunar cycle, the dates for the month of Dhu al-Hijjah change each year. Because the month must begin and end on the sighting of the moon, the estimated dates for the Hajj over the next two years are as follows:
- First day: on or around Saturday, July 17
- Last day: on or around Thursday, July 22
- First day: on or around Thursday, July 7
- Last day: on or around Tuesday, July 12
Information regarding the Hajj Pilgrimage is articulated in Accommodation for the Hajj Pilgrimage page.
