Eight British Muslims kick off Hajj journey on bikes

he bikers will travel for six weeks through eight countries covering over 2,000 miles in order to raise £1m for those affected by the Syrian war, Ilmfeed reported on Friday, July 14.

Kicking off their journey from the UK, they will travel through France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy then Greece.

Ideally, they would have liked to travel to Saudi Arabia via Turkey, Syria and Jordan but due to security reasons they will take travel by ship from Greece to Egypt before travelling to Saudi Arabia.

Muslims from around the world pour to Saudi Arabia every year to perform hajj, one of the five pillars of Islam.

Every able-bodied adult Muslim who can financially afford the trip must perform hajj at least once in a lifetime.
