A Round-Up of IlmFeed’s Facebook Live Hajj Coverage

Before the introduction of services such as Twitter’s Periscope and Facebook Live, live streaming to thousands of people was only possible with expensive broadcast technology.

However, with Facebook rolling out Facebook Live to all users, we have been able bring on-the-ground live footage from Hajj.

Our intention was to encourage Muslims to perform Hajj and Umrah and to show non-Muslims the beauty of Hajj.

Here’s a round-up of our Facebook Live Hajj coverage:

Note: The videos may take a few seconds to load.

Imam Hassan Shibly, Director of CAIR kicked off the coverage with a live broadcast showing his group entering Makkah whilst reciting the Talbiyah:

Entering Mecca for Hajj!
