The morning of 25th October 2012(9th DhulHijja 1433 AH) dawned a bright sunny day at the Bilal Campus. The students of Nursery, Primary and Hawza were filled with excitement as they all waited for the demonstration of the Haj rituals to begin, and later for each one to be able to view and circumbulate the Ka'aba model.

The demonstration started with teacher Yassin leading a chorus of 'Labbayk, Allahumma Labbayk', followed by a poem on the Hajj rituals in step by step order.

A small group of students, dressed in white, some in male ihrams and others in salah chadors performed the demonstration, as the poem was recited.
