Man Decided To "Flog Satan" While On Pilgrimage In Mecca

 Muslim pilgrims, as part of one of the last major rituals of the religious Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca and nearby holy sites in Saudi Arabia, engaged in the symbolic stoning of Satan on Monday.

But instead of joining others to stone Satan, this old man decided to use his cane on the devil... (he must have been very angry) The ritual is an emulation of Ibrahim’s (Abraham) stoning of the devil at the three spots where he is said to have appeared trying to dissuade him from obeying God’s order to sacrifice his son, Ismael (Isaac).

Muslims from around the world pour to Makkah every year to perform Hajj, one of the five pillars of Islam.
