Hajj is the fifth pillar of Islam and without a doubt an important aspect of our deen that must be fulfilled at some point in our life. During the Hajj pilgrimage the Eid Al Adha celebration is celebrated for those that have not gone on Hajj for that specific year.

Which types of Hajj require the sacrifice of an animal and which don’t?
