Muslim pilgrims poured onto the plain of Arafat, south-east of Mecca to mark the Day of Arafat during the pilgrimage.

The Day of Arafat, considered the most important day during the Muslim pilgrimage of Haj, sees pilgrims making their way to the site of Mount Arafat to spend much of the day in prayer. It is also the site where Muslims believe the Prophet Muhammad delivered his last sermon to believers.

The annual Haj begins in the 12th month of the Islamic year, which is lunar, not solar.

Haj must be performed at least once in their lifetime by all Muslims capable of making the expensive and difficult journey.
