Surat Al-Hajj (Arabic: سورة الحج‎, "The Pilgrimage, The Hajj") is the 22nd sura of the Qur'an with 78 ayat.

Verses [Quran 2:62], [Quran 5:69] and [Quran 22:17] address the Jews, Christians and Sabians. According to the Shafi'is and Hanbalis, this is the only surah to have two prostations of recitation, however the Hanafis and Malikis do not recognise the second apparent sajda.[citation needed]
