Haleema is on her fist haj. "I'm happy that I'm here, I pray for God's forgiveness. Sitting in Arafat makes me feel like I am cleaned from all my dirty sins I may have committed in the past. Haj was my lifetime dream," she said. REUTERS/Zohra Bensemra SEARCH "HAJ BENSEMRA" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
