We Snuck a Camera into Mecca to Film Hajj: The World’s Largest Pilgrimage

We Snuck a Camera into Mecca to Film Hajj: The World’s Largest Pilgrimage


SUROOSH ALVI: And this is about
as quiet as it gets. Hajj is the largest annual
pilgrimage in the world. It happens in Mecca,
Saudi Arabia. And for Muslims, it’s a
requirement that you have to do once in your lifetime. The Saudi government estimated
that last year there were over 3 million pilgrims who attended,
but the unofficial number is much higher. My parents are originally
from Lahore, Pakistan. They’re practicing Muslims, and
last year they decided it was time for them
to perform Hajj. So I went with them to help them
with their journey, but also for myself as well. It was the first time
for all of us. And I didn’t go thinking I
was going to make a VBS documentary. I just took the smallest
handicam we had the office and literally shot from the hip. You’re not allowed to shoot in
most of the holy places. So this is the footage I
managed to sneak out. We flew on Saudi Arabian
airlines. It was about a 10 hour flight
from JFK to Medina, where we spent 6 days getting mentally
prepared for the Hajj that we were about to embark on. In pre-Islamic times, Medina
was a place where the travelers who were crossing the
desert in camel caravans would come to rest. It was kind of like
a desert oasis. In modern times it’s kind of the
same thing, but there are less camels and more shopping
malls and hotels. There’s also stunning mosque
there called the Prophet’s Mosque, which is the
second-holiest site in Islam. When you’re there, you basically
just go to the mosque five times a day, for six
days straight, to get into a meditative state. The mosque is huge. It holds almost 700,000
people. And when we were there for
the Friday prayer, it was pretty much full. Flying to Mecca from Medina
was really interesting. Before we went to the airport,
we cleansed ourselves in a very specific way. And then we had to put on a
white seamless garment made our of terrycloth that all the
pilgrims have to wear. And it’s a renunciation of the
life that you come from and is supposed to put everyone
on the same level. There is no upper class
or lower class. Everyone’s the same. It’s just you and the sheet,
and that’s it. [PRAYING] This is called getting into
a state of Irham. Besides the clothes, there
are a lot of other rules. You can’t smoke. You can’t have sex. You can’t shave. You can’t cut your nails,
and there are a bunch of other no-no’s. So we got this charter, just
for the pilgrims, and 10 minutes after the plane took off
from Medina, the captain announced that we’d flown over
a designation, and we were in the zone near Mecca. And we all had to start
saying a prayer. And our group guide got onto the
loudspeaker system of the airplane and started
yelling the prayer. Everyone started chanting it. And I had a moment where I
looked around and saw all of these men and women in their
white robes, the men with their beards, and just thought,
if someone from the West could see us right now,
they would think we were a bunch of fanatical Jihadis
on some kind of an insane mission, when in reality, it was
just pilgrims excited to go on this spiritual quest. I think what was most odd about
this flight were the flight attendants, who were all
Filipino, wearing their normal Saudi flight attendant
outfits, looking like they would rather have any
other gig in the world than this one. We landed in Jeddah and
took a bus into Mecca. And that ride into the city was
one of the wilder scenes I’ve ever seen in my life. There were all these pilgrims
coming from all directions in all kinds of vehicles. And you see them riding
on the tops of cars, and vans, and buses. I remember seeing a pilgrim
jumping from the roof of one bus to another. Everybody’s just trying
to get to the city. Mecca is not a very big city. And during the year, it’s a
relatively mellow place, except during the
week of Hajj. The city completely transforms
and half the challenge of completing your Hajj is getting
all these rituals done in a very strict timeline,
dealing with the fact there are about three million other
people there who try to do the exact same thing at
the same time. After we checked into our
hotel in Mecca we walked towards the Grand Mosque,
which is also known as Masjid Al-Haram. It’s the holiest
place in Islam. And it’s a massive structure. This Moscow can hold upwards
of four million people with its outdoor and indoor space,
which, during Hajj, is technically the largest
gathering of people in the world at any given time. This mosque is what Muslims
pray towards from all over the world. And as you’re walking towards
it, you feel the anticipation build. People have been waiting
their whole lives to come to this place. And once you enter the mosque,
then you see the Kabeh. The Kabeh is a black
box in the center of the Grand Mosque. And it was built
around 2000 BC. And people have been praying
towards it since before Islam started. And when Prophet Muhammad
finally showed up, he cleaned up the place, got rid of all the
idols that the pagans had been worshipping, and reordained
the building as the House of God. So in the Grand Mosque, we had
to do our first ritual, which is called the Tawaf, which
is basically doing seven counterclockwise laps
around the Kabeh. And it’s kind of like being in
a mosh pit with hundreds of thousands of people, but instead
of it being full of angry young punk kids, we were
up against aggressive Bangladeshi grandmothers. I had my parents on each arm
interlocked, and we held each other as we went around the
structure seven times. You’re staring at the Kabeh. It’s a very intense
and heavy vibe. But the one thing that’s a total
bummer is you look up and all you see are these
massive, luxury five-star hotels for the super-rich
Muslims who want to pray from the confines of their room. After running around the Kabeh
seven times you have to do a bunch of other rituals in order
to complete your Hajj. You have five days
to get it done. And it’s kind of like being
on a scavenger hunt. You have a checklist. You have to be smart. And you have to use strategy in
order to make this happen on schedule. You have to do the Sa’i, which
is walking and running back and forth between two hills. Back in the day he used to be
outdoors and now it’s been turned into indoor structure
with two very, very long corridors. You have to spend a day
at Mount Arafat. It’s where the Prophet
delivered his last sermon from. And you spend the day in prayer,
and contemplation, and beg for forgiveness for
all of your sins. It’s a very important day,
and, after spending the majority of it in a tent, I
walked out and went in the direction of the mountain. And I walked through this wild
scene with people everywhere camped out with their animals. And as I got closer to mount
Arafat, it was such an incredible sight because
it had been completely transformed. It looked like a snow-covered
peak. Our tour group operators, before
we went on this trip, gave us some guidelines. And the last point on the
sheet said, be patient. Be very patient. Be very, very patient. I fully grasped the meaning of
this when we had to take a three-kilometer bus ride,
and it ended up taking eight hours. It was the middle of the night,
and we had to collect stones, it was one of our
rituals, in a place called [INAUDIBLE]. And so we got off the bus. We navigated our way around
sleeping bodies all over the ground, found the stones. And then it was time to pray,
and so we just threw the prayer rugs down on
the side of the highway and hit the mats. After picking up the stones,
we got back on the bus and drove to Mina. The Valley of Mina is where
the majority of the pilgrims stay. It’s a tent city that fills
up with, essentially, the population of Seattle for a
week and then, after Hajj ends, it clears out again
and goes away. It’s tents as far as
the eye can see. [SINGING IN PRAYER] From [INAUDIBLE] we arrived in Mina, and that’s
where we had to stone Satan. That’s the next ritual. And this one was actually
a lot of fun. You had to throw 21 stones,
seven at three separate Satan-stoning stations. And I finally got to see
what Satan looks like. Up until a couple years ago,
Satan looked like three big pillars sticking out
of a large pit. But the space wasn’t big
enough, and there was a stampede and people died. So the Saudi government, they
built three ramps the size of a multi-lane highway, and
there were three pillars inside of it that represent
the devil. They’re lit in shades
of green. And there’s a strange rumbling
loud sound coming out of them. And as my dad pointed out, the
whole thing made Satan look quite surreal. Before we finished the Hajj, we
had to repeat some of the rituals that we’d
already done. So we had to revisit Satan,
throw rocks at him two more times. We had to go back to back to
Mecca from Mina and do another seven counterclockwise laps. And then it was time for Eid,
which marks the official end of Hajj, which is a
big celebration. It’s the end of the state of
Irham that we’ve been in. And we slaughter an animal
to celebrate it. And then the last thing you
do is you shave your head. This is the line for
the barber shop. This is the line. Soon, they will all be bald,
all of these men. The barber shops in Mecca
have these massive lines outside of them. And you see hundreds of
thousands of baldos walking around town. And those people have
all succeeded in completing their Hajj. And they’re called Hajjis. Dealing with the Hajj every
year is a huge logistical challenge for the Saudi
government– to the point where they’ve
actually set up a Ministry of Hajj. In the past, there have been
incidents where pilgrims were trampled, when ramps collapsed
and pilgrims died, and the Saudi government has invested
billions of dollars to create an infrastructure to make this
work, with complex crowd control techniques. And what I saw when I went last
year was something that somehow manages to work. But it kind of goes without
saying that bringing 3 million people into such a small place
is going to bring up some complications. There’s a bit of a dark side. This many people in such
a small place, it really gets unwieldy. And despite the Saudi
government’s best efforts to deal with this profound
logistical challenge, the bottom line is that there
are too many people. And people need things. They need places to sleep. They need food. The need toilets. And the poor people who were
there, you see them basically camped out on the side of the
road for days on end. It really felt like Mecca was
maxing out by the end of Hajj. And the whole scene starts
looking and feeling rather apocalyptic. No matter where all these
people come from. No matter what they do. And no matter how rich or poor
they might be, during this pilgrimage to Mecca it
felt like everyone was just the same. It was unlike any place I’ve
ever been and unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. I was there standing amongst
millions of people, I was there with my family, but, on
some level, I felt like I all alone, on a personal trek. And everyday life felt like it
was hundreds of thousands of miles away. We flew back to New York. We landed in the morning, and
I went straight back to the Vice offices, which
may not have been the wisests of ideas. I felt like I’d been catapulted
from one end of the universe to the other.

    1- The luxury hotels you mentioned is not for the "Super rich muslims to pray in the confines of their rooms"!!! …. no one goes to mecca to pray in a hotel! that's just ignorant😒
    2- Describing Hajj as a "Scavenger Hunt" was really an indication that your heart was not in the right place.. which was sad!
    I wish you luck in your life.. and pray that one day you get to feel the deep emotions of that spiritual journey!🙏💕

    Christians & Jews DO NOT go or have to go a house where God "lives," in order to connect with HIM, The ONE and ONLY TRUE GOD. HE is OMNIPRESENT(meaning he is everywhere at all times) because HE CAN and HE is all powerful. HE is in the past, in the present, and in the future for HE is The Almighty. HE DOES NOT have a black house in Makka called the Kabba, where he HE "lives" (contrary to silly paganist Islamic belief!). Neither Cgristian nor Jews believe God has a hiuse where he lives. We (humans vuils hiuses for gim wgere we go to worshim. But, none of us believe he lives there. Our God lives in Heaven and anywhere else HE wishes to manifest HIMSELF. YHWH is HIS name. HE who told Moses HIS name. When Moses asked him on the mountain (after receiving the 10 commandments), "What should I tell them (the children of Israel) your name is?" And Elohim (God) said to Moses, "Tell them (the children of Israel), "I am YHWH (pronounced: Yaweh) THE ONE and only Elohim. (Exodus Chapter 3 Verse 15). The Bible (Torah & New Testament) proceeded to call HIM YHWH over 7,000 times in all the books contained in the Bible. Elohim is HIS TITLE DESIGNATION; which means "God" in Hebrew. But, HIS actual name is YHWH! HE never called himself any other name but YHWH, THE Elohim (meaning… YHWH The God) of the Children of Israel. Both Jewish and Christians traditiobs call him other TITLES (including: Jehovia, God, Elohim, Emmanuel, The Father, The Son, The Holy Spirit e.t.c). But these ARE NOT HIS Name. They are just respectful TITLES for we (mere human mortals) are not worthy to call him by his name. HE Never called himself "Allah," or any other name. This is one of THE Choke points that Islam cannot reconcile in its "theology." They write in their texts that their "god" said his name is "Allah." But Al "Lah" (in classic Arabic, literally means "the god"). "Lah" was the name if the Moon God, the highest of the 360 pagan gods worshipped by Mohamed's tribe (The Quresh) in pre-Islamic Makka before & during the tinw Mohamed was allegedly recieving his "revelations from some angel named "Jibril." We "The people of The Book" wrote all these things down when Mohamed could not even read a sibgle word! We (Christians) and our religious brethren (the Jews) also wrote YHWH's WORDS over 2000 years before the illiterate "prophet" of Islam was born; up to the resurrection of God in HIS human form known to christians as Yoshua (a.k.a. Jesus, The Savior, or The Son of God). Compare this f fantastic super amazing record keeping of our religion and God's activities & revelations on earth, with the sometimes lewd rantings and ravings of a man who until his death at aporoximately 52 years old, never could read or write in even his own language. It is clear as daylight that the only stroke of genius Mohamed ever had in his life (either by design or by sheer luck) was to make his hometown (Makka, a.k.a. Mecca) a permanent tourist destination and a resounding economic success. He guaranteed this by insisting that one of the 5 requirements (pillars of Islam) of his followers of his new "religion" be that they MUST visit his home town (their finances permitting) and worship and touch or kiss the black pagan stone (Kaaba) which housed the pagan gods (including al-Lat, al-Manat & al-Uzza; the "3 daughters of Allah" whom Mohamed prostrated in front of and worshiped as gods (then later claimed it was Satan that made him do it… hence "the Satanic verses") AFTER he had already founded Islam! The 3 daughters if Allah were just 3 of many dozens of pre-Islamic Islamic pagan totems and stone idols worshipped in the kabba;the stone statutes are gone. But now it's the house that housed the statutes (the kabba) the same stone cube that Mohamed said will grow ears, eyes, a nose and mouth on the last days, and plead with Allah to forgive all the Muslim's so they may enter one of the 7 heavens Allah has created for them and them alone. Yeah…right! The genius of Mohamed was not his skills as a caravan raider or a warlord or even as a false prophet.
    His most impressive skill was as a salesman and public relations genius. He was the first, true international travel agent. public relations genius and tour operator. He made sure that his hometown will forever be economically successful, by drawing millions of his followers there, once a year and then going out to conquer and forcibly recruiting millions more as tourists to his hometown (under the threat of death)! True genius! I'll give him that much. Everything else he said is pure B.S.

    …// .. The selfish act of Haj … Increasingly, Islam is looking worse and worse. While the wealthy Muslims have the privilege to go to Mecca (apparently allah loves the rich), the financially burdened Muslims must suffer and feel unworthy. These imbeciles (Hajjis) upon return are automatically revered as a sort of upper sect / class.
    That money (approx. $10,000 for a haj trip) should be utilized to help the needy and not to secure a place in Allah's paradise filled with 72 virgins .. Truly a selfish act but not uncommon amongst Muslim.
    The act of Haj was a financial masterstroke by that desert shyster Mohammad to collect money and nothing more. The Muslim simpletons however are still following the trick unquestioned.

Yes the documentary/ short video needs to provide more insight for better understanding, however as a Muslim brother some comments from Muslim brothers and sisters are a little sad. We should help those gain more understanding than to belittle unsurety, limited knowledge and misrepresentation. I hope this individual's Hajj will be accepted, insha-allah ameen.

    What a sick cult and to think the more religious a Muslim becomes the more dangerous he/she becomes, let's just admit that all the peaceful verses in the Quran have to be abrogated and then you are left with the real Islam practiced and taught in all the mosques of the world that follow Sunni wahhabi Islam as in the Saudis insane murderous version of Islam

    Just seeing the comments when this guy simply reported what he saw and his experience. Yet i see many bashing comments. I don't know why people like to water down simple truth. Thanks narrator you did what is expected of you. Thank you.

    HE HAS NOOO IDEAAA WHAT HES TALKING ABOUT! He sounds so dead 💀 He doesn’t realise how much of a blessing he experienced.😔😍 He made so many rude jokes throughout the video like the jihadist joke on the aeroplane and the Bengali grandma joke doing tawaaf. He sounds so ungrateful it hurts😒🥺 and hajj doesn’t seem apocalyptic it’s beautiful no matter what happens there or how people sleep 😠😤😢

    This is a clear picture of everyone going down to hell. None of them can ever claim innocence or ignorance about the truth. Jesus Christ said I'm the way the truth and the life no one comes to the father but thru me. There is no Allah, and Mohammed is in hell, waiting for all these stupid, idiots, so sad and heartbreaking.

    If the actual intention was to inform people about Hajj than VICE wouldn’t have accepted and Posted this video from a person who doesn't know almost anything about Hajj. Clearly shows that this person wasn’t' performing Hajj as an "Ibadah" to please ALLAH, he was there to do video for VICE and narrate hajj in a very very very weird way to present Hajj as some kind of Torture.
    To the ignorant narrator, do you know why you had to do seven laps? why you run between the mountains? why are there three pillars to represent satan in those particular places? Why you stone those pillar? Do you know why you sacrifice an animal on the day of Eid? Do you know who Ibraheem (alahi wa sallam) is? Who is Ismaeel (alahi wa sallam)? What happened to them?
    You know almost nothing. And because you know nothing, you narrated so ignorantly. Yet VICE post this hollow video that has no information. VICE is not innocent duffer. They have intention. And to fulfill their bad Intention they need a very bad video like this about hajj.
