Hajj is a once-in-a-lifetime experience rooted in the story of Prophet Ibrahim, his wife Hajar and their son Ismail. On the eve of Eid ul-Adha, Dr. Maher Hathout and guest Haris Tarin, head of MPAC’s Washington, DC, office, have a riveting conversation about the central and often overlooked role of Hajar in the foundation of Islam’s final pillar.
