The Wider Image: Attending my first haj
Sanjeeda Bagam, 60, a Muslim pilgrim from Pakistan, is wheeled by her son after they cast their stones at a pillar that symbolises Satan during the annual haj pilgrimage in Mena, Saudi Arabia, August 21, 2018. Sanjeeda is on her first haj. "When I arrived in Mecca and saw the Kaaba, I had a feeling like never before: joy erased my entire past, as if I only know the present right here," she said. "I immediately took a taste, and now I wish I could come again." REUTERS/Zohra Bensemra SEARCH "HAJ BENSEMRA" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
