A 110-year-old woman from Russia's North Caucasus has fulfilled a lifelong ambition by traveling 3,000 kilometers as a pilgrim to join the Hajj.
The Hajj is the largest annual pilgrimage in the world and also considered a religious duty that must be carried out at least once in every Muslim's lifetime.
It is the only pillar of Islam that happens strictly at a certain time and place, from the 8th to the 12th day of the last month of the Islamic Calendar.
For Madinat Dzadzieva, taking part in the Hajj has been a lifelong dream. She is high-spirited and fearless, despite being more than a century old.
