Religious pilgrimage worldwide seems to be a near universal phenomenon, be it on a local, regional or global scale. The Muslim Hajj, drawing perhaps as many as 2.5 million pilgrims in 2006, is one of the larger global pilgrimage phenomena. It brings Muslims from around the world to Saudi Arabia for a few days of religious solidarity each year in an otherwise very fractious world.
The purpose of this lesson is to provide students with an understanding of the Muslim Hajj and the scale of the phenomenon. In doing so, it will also give students an understanding of the distribution of Muslims worldwide and by region.

Students will learn aspects of Middle East culture and geography through reading the book.
