"Come with the pilgrims

as they set out on a journey,

a journey of patience

to the city of Mecca."



We are led on the journey of a lifetime to the city of Mecca - the pilgrimage known to Muslims as the Hajj. The pilgrims walk with heads bare and feet in sandals; they call to Allah; they kiss or point to the Black Stone, as the Prophet did. Arriving at Mecca, they surge round the Ka'aba, shave their heads and travel to Mount Arafat. Finally, though their bodies are tired and aching, their spirits are uplifted, knowing that with thousands of others they have performed the sacred pilgrimage.



This is a window on to a sacred journey for Muslims the world over - beautifully described and illustrated for younger children.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'a great introduction to the meaning and reality of the Hajj to Muslims. Non-Muslim children and adults alike will learn a great deal from it, and Muslim readers of any age will rejoice in seeing such a crucial element of their faith portrayed so beautifully and respectfully.'


A beautiful book.


Lyrical, poetic text and bold mixed-media illustrations combine to capture the ethos and excitement of this important religious practice and how its rituals are related to the stories of the Prophet Ibrahim and his family.

The stunningly illustrated book conveys clearly the rites involved in making Hajj. This is a 10/10 read.

Engaging and vibrant artwork.. This book would be suitable to support the teaching and learning of pupils enquiring in to the Hajj.

A beautiful book.
