Hajj will start with Ihram, Tawaf around Alkaaba, arafa mountain, muzdalifa and mina. Ihram which takes its name from the same origins as haram indicates a state of sacredness when otherwise halal matters are temporarily prohibited. It is getting ready for visiting the Holy mosque in Mecca. It is the first place for worshipping on earth built by Prophet Abraham and his son Ismail. Ihram is consisted of two pieces of unstitched sheets worn by the haji. One piece around his waist and the other one is worn round the upper part of his body.
Tawaf surrounding Alkaaba. It is said that Prophet Adam who originally built it and later on it was rebuilt by Prophet Abraham and his son.
