Arab stars gear up for Hajj
It's that time of year again - stars across the Arab world are getting ready to take a break from their glamorous lifestyles and wave adieu to their legions of fans as they gear up for the religious pilgrimage of Hajj.
Popular Egyptian actor Ahmad Al Sakka is reportedly amongst the rich and famous making this year's journey. According to Al Muheet the star is set to leave Cairo for a religious break from his professional success after being honored in the Rotary Club of Alexandria for 'the effect of the arts on the development of culture in a society' for his starring role in Ramadan TV hit Red Lines.
And Ahmad isn't the only celeb rumored to be getting in on the Hajj action this year. He will be joined by Egyptian starlet Yussra who is reported to be making the journey after a week long visit to Holland and Sweden.
