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.

    Snuck????
    My cousin just got back from performing his pilgrimage and he had footage of everything even up close to the walls of the Kaaba

  6. Deebo Nash December 3, 2019 at 7:05 pm

    Muhammad was a white racist and sexist

    Sahih al-Bukhari Book 3 Hadith 63
    -Narrated Anas bin Malik:
    While we were sitting with the Prophet in the mosque, a man came riding on a camel. He made his camel kneel down in the mosque, tied its foreleg and then said: "Who amongst you is Muhammad?" At that time the Prophet was sitting amongst us (his companions) leaning on his arm. We replied, "This white man reclining on his arm." The an then addressed him, "O Son of 'Abdul Muttalib." The Prophet said, "I am here to answer your questions."

    Sahih Muslim 6081 – “It was narrated that Abu Juhaifah said: ‘I saw the Messenger of Allah with a white complexion and some white hairs.’

    Sahih Muslim 6071 – “It was narrated from Al-Jurairi from Abu At-Tufail…he was white with an elegant face.’
    “…the whiteness of his cheeks.” 4:1208
    Sunan abu dawud- 3:1002

    The Muslim sources even go out of their way to remind us how white Muhammad was. They frequently reference the whiteness of his various body parts—something that was not mentioned about any other prophet, from Abraham to Zachariah.

    Find the following in sahih albukari
    “The whiteness of his shins.” 1:8:367
    “…the whiteness of the thigh of Allah’s Prophet.” 8:3325
    “…the whiteness of his leg.” 456:7:67
    “…the whiteness of his stomach.” 9:90:342
    “…the whiteness of his armpits.” 8:78:631

    Find in sunan abu dawud
    “…the whiteness of the forearms.” 20:3200

    WHITE MUHAMMAD OWNED BLACK SLAVES

    Sahih Al bukhari- 7263,6161

    Black slave shot to death while holding Muhammad's luggage- 3858

    So mubammad had sex with a 9year old girl, robbed caravans, beheaded hundreds of Jews (he is okay)- but this black man grabbed cloak before spoils were divided so he is going to hell

    Provisions of the Afterlife Which Lie Within Prophetic Guidance (By Ibn Qayyim Al-jawziya) list 28 of the slaves muhammad owned. Named a woman "ship" in arabic because he loaded her like a ship to carry his things.

    Muhammad had sex with his slaves- ibn ishaq page.653 (i guess thats only creepy when thomas jefferson does it)

    *he called black people "raisin heads" sahih albukari- 7142

    A woman may never be a leader because their mind is deficient of a man, and since oprah wants to run for prez and she is black. Guess muhammad disagrees-7099

    MUHAMMAD SAYS SATAN LOOKS LIKE A BLACK MAN ibn ishaq page 243.

    If you say muhammad was black. Thats a death penalty. AL SHIFA-Ahmad ibn Abi Sulayman page 387

    Why are some black people muslim…. they should be some of the last people to become muslim. Muhammad was clearly a false prophet. Muhammad thought he was possesed by a demon.. he was a sinner and couldnt save anyone let alone himself

  7. Yasila Sheraz December 3, 2019 at 7:23 pm

    You are a typical Western muslim by birth ..you filmed it , narrated it as if your job was just to be a hired cameraman . Nevertheless you have not said anything wrong and good that you obeyed your parents and went with them. You do not realise how lucky you have been to be there. The call for hajj comes from Allah to the very lucky few. Even though most people feel that you just tagged along with your parents to please them and your words that you snuck the camera because your parents may not approve of it, I am happy that you went and hope that this experience will have positive effect on your life and you will find the real spiritual benefit with the hindsight and observe your duty to your creator with true sincerity. Even though some viewers did not like this because it appeared , you lacked the real meaning of hajj and showed no spiritual connection, you made it look like ticking few boxes in the list , I am sure you are rewarded by Allah All mighty more than you and others are thinking. It is only the beginning for you. I pray that more young people are granted this opportunity by Allah. Observe your duty to Allah and be nice to your parents and others. Thank you

    Allah is not God, all religions are toxic. There is no “God” and as long as cults like these keep running, people will continue to commit evil in their “god’s“ name

    Thank you for the video. A lot of my relatives went to Hajj but I never knew how exactly it goes off.

    Dont the saudis have enough cash to get the earlh mosques repositioned, so that they no longer point towards Petra?

  16. Bob Anderson December 4, 2019 at 12:21 am

    According to Muhammad (aka: Momo the Homo) satan looks like a black man. Islam: part pagan, part satanic, 100% idiotic. You didn't sneak jack crap, Liar.

    Only Muslims are allowed to Hajj. Shame on you!

    Amazing how one can meditate in the Mosque filled with 700,000 people.

  21. Joseph Ellul December 4, 2019 at 1:57 am

    So, these people go there after they have pimped their daughters to their uncles? The poor are allowed to pay off their debt for the journey by sending their wives to whore around too ? As long as they do the haj, they can do anything because their sins will be forgiven for ever.

  22. Starvin Marvin December 4, 2019 at 3:07 am

    But from what I can see and you got to give them props everybody’s behaving and being respectful towards each other. Good share!

  23. Waris Ali December 4, 2019 at 3:20 am

    Why did you “Sneak” it in? Millions of people (including myself) bring their cameras and you ARE able to film everywhere. There are a few places you can’t film for security reasons.

    OK. SO… Meccas was NEVER EVER on a main trade route to anywhere and that is well documented. The Kaaba IS, as you point out, a Pagan Temple that Mo simply "acquired" and then removed most of the pagan idols outside.

    There is no salvation to be found in Islam. My spirit was taken to Heaven, Jesus Christ spoke to me face to face he is God the Son, and he is the only Savior. You can’t go to Heaven any other way but through Jesus Christ. Stop worshiping a black rock that represents the fallen star. Again, there is no Islam in Heaven, Jesus is Lord! Shalom.

    So much Muslim apologetics in the comments here. "oh you got it wrong" "oh, you're making Islam look bad" and other nonsense. Religion is a cancer and blight upon humanity. Unfortunately, it will have to be stomped out since it refuses to go away quietly as it should.

  42. FATIMA IRFAN CHAUDHRY December 4, 2019 at 3:40 pm

    omg.. what the heckk.. i went for hajj in 2011.. making videos etc.. everything is allowed.. its just a bit restricted so people dont gather just for pics and videos and cause other people any harm.. cosoo much crowd will gather at one place.. restricting other people to move and thats all.. every year hajj is broadcasted live.. even makkah is live in normal days
    worst narrator everr..

  48. Uncle Davey December 4, 2019 at 9:13 pm

    So let me get this straight. Officially every year three million go on this Hajj. Every Muslim is supposed to do it at least once in his or her life, and there are 1.8 billion Muslims.

    From this I conclude that Muslims must have an average life expectancy of 600 years.

  49. Diand Bull December 4, 2019 at 9:14 pm

    Not being rude, but ?? What's in the box ?. The Saudi's are making mega bucks from religion.

    Wow so many lost souls that hell will wait for them so happily , and it's not even their faults , they are just blind. Do they even know why they wear this white cloth? Because the clothes of Mohamad was always full of sperm and poor Aisha always try to clean it but she never clean them 100% , this is the paradigm of the moral prophet go out with your clothes full of sperm , and that's the colour of his clothes ??

    I'm so happy that I was not born to be brainwashed.

    And just think… Islam is losing millions of adherents by them migrating to Christian nations. In a few years, this hij won't be so crowded!

    I saw and heard enough of this prayer call while I was in Turkey during my stint in the army. The narrator says that seeing those people in the plane on their trip to mecca that most people would think that they were just crazy muslims ( which they are). They might look harmless on the plane or walking to the hajj but don't think for a minute that they are sane.

    Horrible video. The way he describes certain actions its disgusting n it seems like he's forced to be there. He has nothing positive to say all he's doing is criticizing. Boring video which was supposed to be an educating video about hajj..

  80. Ali Ahmed December 5, 2019 at 4:57 pm

    An abysmal presentation of Mecca.

  81. Rakii Lifestyle December 5, 2019 at 5:09 pm

    You should be ashamed of making such a distasteful video… And ur enthusiasm makes me want to puke….I guess you don't know what Hajj really is

  82. Dulce Amigo December 5, 2019 at 5:22 pm

    Totally superstitious! Islam is based on fables without the slightest evidence. What a waste of time!

  83. Lordz Ray December 5, 2019 at 6:01 pm

  88. dj manafi December 5, 2019 at 9:37 pm

    This proves how little each group knows about the other. Fear of the unknown continues to separate mankind!

  89. I AM December 5, 2019 at 11:15 pm

    Muslims believe in a vicious and cruel god. The religion of peace my ass. If I were president Mecca would be a target for a nuke.

  90. Zahir Millard December 5, 2019 at 11:39 pm

    Uhh umm didnt know the founder of VICE was a muslim… let alone a brown dude lol.

  91. Petepan December 6, 2019 at 12:20 am

    sounds to me as if this guy is a Hajjpacker.

  92. Humberto Resendiz December 6, 2019 at 2:19 am

    beautiful to watch such an event looks so intense, I am wondering how they keep their clothes amazingly white,

  93. Zakar December 6, 2019 at 2:27 am

    No need to sneak into Mecca Shareef, if you're a Muslim.

  94. Beverly Balius December 6, 2019 at 2:47 am

    Satanic!!

  95. Sniper December 6, 2019 at 2:58 am

  96. Hashmaster General December 6, 2019 at 3:18 am

    Don't be filled you are not on a plane with a bunch of pilgrims you are on a plane with a bunch of potential terrorists. This is also a time of recruitment into Islamic extremist groups.

  97. Mahipal Yadav December 6, 2019 at 4:30 am

    its the same everywhere…weather it be multiple hindu pilgrimages in india or be it mecca…………….these bunch of fools…..thinking that visiting some place is gonna make they god happy and get rid of all their sins……..but in reality they are turning that place into a garbage dump. There is no place for rationality in any religion.

    You know what happens in some of the hindu pilgrimages in india. Imagine you go to famous hindu tample in india(Shirdi-Maharastra, KhatuShyam-Rajasthan and many more ), and what you see is large croud, so large that it would take you hours(a whole day in some cases) in long queues to get to the garbhagaraha(womb chamber:the centeral part of a hindu temple). So what do you do? You pay same extra amount in the temple office, get a reciept for it, and you can cut through the queue to get to the garbhagraha, leaving all those people behind who are either not willing to pay or incapable to pay extra just to see their gods without a fuss because of their poor economical status. And this whole process of buying special pass for early acces is official from temples administration.

    A god wouldn't discriminate between his devotees on the basis of how much they are willing to spend to show their respect to their god.

  98. Dave Wilber December 6, 2019 at 5:38 am

    Hey. I snuck in a camera to an event that gets live streamed to millions. Look at me, click-baiter.

  99. K Mobile December 6, 2019 at 5:38 am

    Pagan ritual. Islam rejects idols, but its ok to kiss a black stone, that is not a stone but just shards cleaned and blackened.
