Unit 17 Pilgrimage? 朝圣
White. As far as he could see. A sea of white. This was Mohammad's dream. He had spent a whole year working and saving up enough money for his trip.
After a lot of hard work, he flew to Mecca to partake in the world's biggest pilgrimage. Now, he walked with over a million people, all dressed in white. Men, woman and children. It was going to be a challenging three days with very little food and water.
On the first day, Mohammad was excited. He talked to people he met along the journey. The sun was very hot. By the second day, he was tired and the sun seemed much hotter.
There were people everywhere, in front of him, behind him. Sometimes he tripped and fell onto people. But, it would all be worth it. "After the pilgrimage, I will ba a new man. I will feel closer to Allah."
The third day came, and he finished tired and sore. He had done what he came to do. He was very proud of himself.
