The Hajj- A Personal Journey The hajj is as much an individual journey, as it is a mass congregation of Muslims from all parts of the world.
Hajj is an obligatory pilgrimage once in a lifetime of a Muslim to the holy city of Makkah. Traditionally this journey also includes a visit to Madinah, where Prophet Muhammed (SAW) is buried.
Each pilgrim’s experience is unique.
In this book, the author charts out the journey he undertook in the Spring of 1999, and records his observations and activities.
He traces his journey from his arrival in Saudi Arabia to his return to London, England. He captures the daily activities, the rhythm of a pilgrim’s life and the rituals undertaken. He has also noted the places he visited and some of the people he met.
This book will give the reader an insight into the 'once in a lifetime journey' performed from the eyes of one who has experienced this journey.
