22. The Pilgrimage
A.J. Droge [+]
This sūra takes its title from the reference to the Ḥajj, the pilgrimage originally established by Abraham (Q22.26–38). In addition to dealing with matters connected with the pilgrimage, it condemns those who deny believers access to the ‘Sacred Mosque,’ and concludes with an address to the believers, urging them to remain steadfast to the religion of Abraham.
