This Dark Age

A manual for life in the modern world.

By Daniel Schwindt

This Dark Age is now available in paperback on Amazon. The print version is MUCH cleaner than this online version, which is largely unedited and has fallen by the wayside as the project has grown. If you’ve appreciated my writing, please consider leaving a review on the relevant paperback volumes. The print edition also includes new sections (Military History, War Psychology, Dogmatic Theology).

Pillar Five—Hajj, or pilgrimage

Each and every Muslim who is physically and financially capable, must make the pilgrimage to Mecca once in life, and this is to be carried out during the 12th month of the lunar calendar. Upon reaching Mecca or before, the pilgrim cloth themselves in two simple white sheets, symbolizing the equality of every believer in the presence of the God who is One. The Hajj involves various rituals such as walking seven times around the Kaaba, touching the Black Stone, and symbolically stoning the devil.
