Follow along with the Hajj as it is being performed. Set aside some time each day to reflect on the rituals that the Hajjis are performing that day. There are numerous Hajj manuals and sites that explain what is to be done, when it is being done and in which location. Al Jazeera offers this gorgeous 360-degree view and experience of the Hajj, and if you visit Haramain on Facebook, you can watch the Hajj happening live. Think about the meaning of the day’s rituals and how it applies to your life. Look at pictures of people performing those rituals, and imagine yourself doing them along with the Hajjis. What would you be feeling? What du’a (supplications and prayers) would you make? You may not be able to perform the tawaf or sa’ee, or go to the camps of Mina, the plains of Arafah or sleep in Muzdalifah, but you can set time aside for reflection and prayer dedicated to take advantage of these holy days.
