Bin Baz completed the religious pilgrimage to Mecca.
Sharing images from the birthplace of the Prophet Muhammad, PBUH, he has joined the millions who make the journey annually and following the visit, like many before him, he shaved his head.
The comedian, aka Abdul Aziz, is popularly known for his seriously funny skits, whose impressions of Arab mums are ridiculously on point.

Removing your hair at the end of your pilgrimage is obligatory and it’s up to you how much you remove, but for men, a full-shave is preferred.
There are barber stations within Mecca and following the pilgrimage, males visit head-shaving stations. Men can choose to fully shave their heads, or a slight cut, while women cut a short length from their hair.
