Muslim pilgrims

n ambulance is parked as thousands of Muslim pilgrims pray near the Namira Mosque at Mount Arafat, southeast of the Saudi holy city of Mecca. Pilgrims flooded into the Arafat plain from Mecca and Mina before dawn for a key ritual around the site where prophet Mohammed gave his farewell sermon on this day in the Islamic calendar 1,378 years ago. Pilgrims spend the day at Arafat in reflection and reading the Koran or Mulsim holy book.
