Millions of Muslims are completing the ancient rites of #Hajj in Mecca during these days.

May God accept their efforts. #Hajj2018

حج مبرور و سعي مشكور و ذنب مغفور.
I went on Hajj in 2012. Why is it so life-changing?

It is the ultimate spiritual retreat. The chance to disconnect and see the big picture.

It is an antidote to despair. A chance to *use* faith to win something very real: tranquility.
It is beautiful. You'll rarely, if ever, see humanity that up close and personal. Everyone takes away something that affects them, but for me, it was the unified diversity of Hajj.

No matter what, it goes on as it has for centuries. No matter where you're from.
Where everyone has consciously decided to leave their worries behind and focus on something greater than themselves.

Millions of people gathering in a barren desert valley. Your politics don't matter. Your bank account doesn't matter. Your privilege doesn't matter.
The humility it teaches you as you navigate crowds in the heat.

The trust it forces on you as you yield to its pressure.

The link with history it creates as you sit where your ancestors sat.

There's a tranquility learned there that provides a lifeline for years to come.
Faith and action are two sides of the same coin. You have to believe in something to spur you to action.

Hajj done right does exactly that: spurs action.

Let #Hajj2018 be that catalyst for change.
