A boy and girl pigeon say Bismillah and spread their wings as they head off to Hajj. They see pilgrims at the airport wearing ihram before they start circling the Ka’ba like the humans below. After seven rounds they go to Ibrahim’s Station before they are off to Safa and Marwa while pausing to sip on Zamzam.
With Umrah complete they are off to Mina, then Arafat where duas are made. They then go to sleep under the stars in Muzdalifah, before they slaughter an animal, cut their hair, shower, and throw stones at Shaitan.
