I beseech you to wash away all sins from me and my generations as far back to Adam and Eve. Take any iniquity, anger, unforgiving spirits strife and bitterness that we may have toward one another. Give us a new beginning and fill us with your Holy Spirit. Let no harm, illness or poverty come upon us. Let no tragedy become a cause for us to unite and cause us to become close.

‘I am now a newborn baby and I don’t have any sin,’ Nigerian pilgrim Taofik Odunewu told AFP, standing at the foot of Mount Mercy on the Arafat plain, tears streaming down his face.

From early morning, pilgrims crowded onto the slippery, rocky hill, which their uniform attire turned white in colour.

Some prayed and wept, some slept, while others spread their mats and sat reciting the Koran. 

All male pilgrims dress in ihram to symbolise a state of purity, which also emphasises their unity regardless of social status or nationality.

‘I pray for prosperity, long life and.. I pray for my country,’ Odunewu said with a broad smile.

‘I feel great… I’m on top of the world,’ he said at the world’s largest Muslim gathering.

Ten rituals: The week of Hajj occurs during the last month of the Islamic calendar and requires pilgrims to perform ten services or rituals before and during Hajj

It comes after reports that the annual pilgrimage has seen a rise in the number of pictures being taken on camera phones during the rite of passage in Saudi Arabia as followers share their experiences with family and friends back home

Crackdown: The number of faithful seemed fewer than past years following a crackdown by authorities on illegal pilgrims

HAJJ BY THE NUMBERS 

2,000,000 – Number of Muslims arriving at Arafat today

188 – Different nationalities that arrived last year

120kg – of gold and silver threads used to cover the Kaaba

45,000 – tents erected in Mina to house the pilgrims

£615 million – amount spent by Saudi Arabia on facilities

The hajj, which officially ends on Tuesday, is one of the five pillars of Islam that every capable Muslim must perform at least once.

It comes after reports that the annual pilgrimage has seen a rise in the number of pictures being taken on camera phones during the rite of passage in Saudi Arabia as followers share their experiences with family and friends back home.

But some scholars have taken issue with the practice, which they see as a ‘touristy’ distraction from the prayers and rituals that form one of the five pillars of Islam. 

Security forces were deployed en masse across Arafat plain and Mount Mercy to organise the flow of pilgrims, who have come from 163 countries as well as Saudi Arabia, home to Islam’s holiest sites.

‘This way hajji. Don’t stop here. You’re blocking the way,’ security men shouted through loudspeakers, trying to control the crowds.

The number of faithful seemed fewer than past years following a crackdown by authorities on illegal pilgrims.

This year’s hajj comes with Saudi Arabia and four other Arab nations joining Washington in air strikes against Islamic State group militants who have committed a spate of atrocities in Syrian and Iraqi territory they seized.

Saudi authorities are also striving to protect pilgrims from two deadly viruses, Ebola and the MERS coronavirus.

No such cases have been recorded among the hajj visitors, officials say.

Odunewu and other pilgrims from Nigeria were permitted to enter Saudi Arabia for hajj, despite eight Ebola deaths in their country.

Three West African states hardest hit by Ebola have not been allowed hajj visas.

Every adult Muslim is required to complete the Hajj pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime as long as they are physically and financially capable of making the expensive and difficult journey.

Each year, Muslim faithful from about 180 countries converge on the Islamic city of Mecca and other locations in western Saudi Arabia to complete the holy journey.

The week of Hajj occurs during the last month of the Islamic calendar and requires pilgrims to perform ten services or rituals before and during Hajj.

On the first day of Hajj, Muslims proceed to Mina for prayers then head to Mount Arafat, around 20km east of Mecca, the following day to repent their sins.

Health risk: Saudi authorities are also striving to protect pilgrims from two deadly viruses, Ebola and the MERS coronavirus

Men are required to wear two white seamless cloths with no knots and footwear must show the ankle and back of the foot, it was noted by the International Business Times.

Women are not allowed to wear the traditional Burqa and Niqab to ensure their faces can be seen.

In the second phase, known as Tawaf, when the faithful reach the Grand Mosque, they walk counter-clockwise seven times around the cube-shaped Kaaba – believed to have been built by Abraham 4,000 years ago.

It is this building that, wherever you are in the world, Muslims are expected to face when praying – it is the most sacred location in Islam.

Protection: Pilgrims from Nigeria were permitted to enter Saudi Arabia for hajj, despite eight Ebola deaths in their country. Some pilgrims wore masks for protection

Barred: But three West African states hardest hit by Ebola have not been allowed hajj visas

Repenting: On the first day of Hajj, Muslims proceed to Mina for prayers then head to Mount Arafat, around 20km east of Mecca, the following day to repent their sins

Stone the devil: The sixth requirement sees the pilgrims arrive back at Mina to perform a symbolic stoning of the devil

On the road: Muslim pilgrims ride in a truck on their way to the Plain of Arafat during the annual pilgrimage

Each circuit starts by kissing the Black Stone, called Hajar al-Aswad. Alternatively, pilgrims can point to it if prevented by the crowds.

After the circuits, pilgrims pray before drinking water from the Zamzam well, which is dispensed in coolers around the mosque.

The third rite, known as Sa’ay, requires walking or running seven times between the hills of Safa and Marwah, which are now enclosed by the Grand Mosque.

Afterwards, the men shave their heads and women cut off part of their hair to end the restriction of Ihram. 

The sixth requirement sees the pilgrims arrive back at Mina to perform a symbolic stoning of the devil.

They do this by throwing seven stones at the largest of three pillars, which for safety reasons have now been replaced by walls with areas to catch the projectiles. 

Crowded: This was the scene from the top of the mountain this morning

Sacrifice: Later, animals are slaughtered to mark the sacrifice of Abraham and Ishmael

Close watch: Security forces were deployed en masse across Arafat plain and Mount Mercy to organise the flow of pilgrims

Every adult Muslim is required to complete the Hajj pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime as long as they are physically and financially capable of making the expensive and difficult journey

Long journey: Some walked, others hitched lifts on board cattle trucks and cars

After this, animals are slaughtered to mark the sacrifice of Abraham and Ishmael.

In the eighth rite, the pilgrims return to the Grand Mosque for another Tawaf. Then, on the fourth day of Hajj, they head back to Mina to ‘stone the devil’ again and repeat this ritual the following day.

For the final rite, the pilgrims return to the Grand Mosque for a farewell Tawaf.

Hajj, the fifth of the pillars of Islam, coincides with the Eid al-Adha festival, known as the Feast of the Sacrifice and is meant to commemorate the trials of Prophet Abraham and his family.

Let me take you far away, beginning of your days,
The agony is written in your eyes.
This is how you’ve always felt,
You see it through the haze.
Remember how you’ve locked it up in lies.

They’re coming back from far away,
They’re coming back, they cannot stay.
So I will pray to purify my mind.

Wash my sins away,
Take my sorrow and pain.
Wash my sins away,
Источник teksty-pesenok.ru
Dry my rears with your rain.
Scars from yesterday,
Make my sins, oh, please wash them away.

Live again through feelings
That have shattered all your trust,
The pain you’ve felt
Is burned into your heart.
Never understood,
You were rejected, on the run
And, till today it’s tearing you apart.

They’re coming back from far away…

Позвольте мне взять вас далеко, начало вашего дня,
Агонии написано в ваших глазах.
Это, как вы всегда чувствовал,
Вы видите, что в дымке.
Помнишь, как ты запер ее в ложь.

Они возвращались с далеко,
Они возвращаются, они не могут остановиться.
Так что я буду молиться, чтобы очистить мой ум.

Умывать мои грехи,
Возьми мою печаль и боль.
Умывать мои грехи,
Источник teksty-pesenok.ru
Сухие мой тылы с дождем.
Шрамы от вчера,
Сделать мои грехи, о, пожалуйста, мыть их.

Live снова через чувства
Это разбили все доверять,
Боль вы чувствовали
Сжигается в вашем сердце.
Никогда не понимал,
Вы были отклонены, на ходу
И до сегодняшнего дня это разрываю тебя на части.

Они возвращались из далеко …
