What the Hajj Pilgrimage Is Like, According to a Muslim American

Gizmodo Media Group is teaming up with Smartypants Pictures to premiere the second season of The Secret Life of Muslims—a video series with a view on modern Islam you’re not getting on cable news.

Hajj is one of the five pillars of Islam. All Muslims are required to make the pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in their lifetime, given they are physically and financially able to. In the video above, comedian and actor Ahmed Ahmeddescribes his first hajj.
