This week's program presented a very informative interview on - 'Hajj' - an annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca and a mandatory religious duty for Muslims which must be carried out at least once in lifetime by all adult Muslims. Hajj is performed during a five-day period from the ninth through the thirteenth of Dhu Al-Hijjah, the twelfth month of the Muslim lunar calendar. Canberra expatriate Mr. Tarek Safa and Ms. Iffat Tabassum described their experience of performing Hajj last year and shared some important information for expatriates planning to undertake the pilgrimage in future. This week's program was produced and presented by Raquibul Sheikh.
