Dr Shabbir
If you translate the word hajj to pilgrimage then the
Rituals will automatically follow
But if you translate it according to its root meaning then what you say it becomes clear
As long as the people will continue to refer to the ‘convention’ as pilgrimage the meaning will be distorted

Also all derivatives of the root word HJJ has always been translated as challenge or argue

You are of course correct in defining the purpose of hajj a gathering for the benefit of mankind
The current hajj does not do anything and is only beneficial to the religionists and of course Saudi Arabia

Peace
