ambigram: haji.umrah
Haji & Umrah: two versions ('manasikh') of the Muslims' Holy Pilgrimage to the Holy Lands of Makkah and Medina. 'Haji' or performing the hajj is the fifth tenet of Islam and refers to the 'complete' or 'full' version, while 'Umrah' refers to the minor pilgrimage.
The Holy Day of Aidil Adha also marks the pilgrims' convergence in Arafah on the 10th day in the month of Zulhijjah.
