Former cricket player and Pakistani bowler Shoaib Akhtar is in Saudi Arabia as a state guest to fulfil the Islamic duty of Hajj, and he is updating his followers on his whereabouts.
Last week, Akhtar revealed that he will be speaking at the Hajj Conference in Makkah, which would be attended by leaders of the Muslim world.
He published a video today from the top of the Holy Kabah’s neighbour, the Makkah Clock Tower.
In a video uploaded to Instagram, Akhtar remarked, “We’re at the highest point of the Clock Tower and I want to show you guys how does Kabah look like from here.”

“Subhan Allah,” he added.
One of the five pillars of Islam, the Hajj must be undertaken by all Muslims who have the means at least once in their lives.
It takes place over the course of five days in Makkah, the holiest city in Islam, and the surrounding regions of western Saudi Arabia.
