Time for muslims’ largest gathering has arrived. Yes, it is time of Hajj for muslims. This year the number of Hajis has decreased because of construction works in Makkah but still numbers are quite large. Muslims are moving towards Mina today and tomorrow they will move to Arafat where they will hear the Khutba of Hajj. Muslims who can not perform Hajj wish to watch it on Television channels but sometimes these channels do not help. So here is list of links and live streams where you can see the live proceedings of Hajj online. The links are listed below

Hajj Mubarak to all Muslims around the world. If you are one of those who are looking for a stream to watch Hajj 2009 Transmission online, I’ve found a good link for you. To watch this transmission you need to have Real Player installed on your system. If you dont have a real player, simply download it from here.

While you watch this hajj transmission live online, please do pray that Allah Almighty forgive us and calls us again and again to be part of the Hajj again and again. Hajj is probably the largest gathering of people on earth that is repeated every year.
Today is the day of Arafah, tonight the pilgrims will spend their nights in Muzdalifah and will return to their tents in Minah. Stoning of Jamarah and Tawaaf of the Holy Kaaba …. its all happening there and as I was unable to go this year, I’m watching it live online.
