Zaynah, Maryam and Ali were three young explorers. Together with their guide, uncle Hamza, they explore Makkah, Islam's holiest city.
They take young readers on an exciting journey, revealing lands and places that were an essential part of the development and history of Islam.
Join Zaynah, Maryam and Ali on this revealing journey and find out for yourself about the hidden gems that lie within.
‘This book is intended to serve as a guide for when you and your young ones are performing Hajj or Umrah and to introduce you to aspects of Makkah and Madinah other than the Masjid Al Haram and the Masjid Al Nabawi, which are obviously the principal attractions. So much history surrounds both of these Mosques that I feel it is important that we maintain the knowledge that has been passed down to us about where the Prophet (peace be upon him) was born, where he lived, where he received revelation, where he fought his battles, where he rested, where he delivered his sermons, and so on. The aim of the final guide will be to lay out what might almost amount to a physical Seerah Trail of the Life of the Prophet (peace be upon him) whereby one can enjoy a visible and tangible experience of the environment where the events of the Seerah took place.’
– From the Author’s Preface
‘This book is a brick in the wall of resisting this cunning project of commercialisation of Makkah as it highlights the historically and spiritually significant places that deserve the visit of our people, young and old; rather than malls and shopping centres.’
– From the forward by Shaykh Ahmed Saad Al-Azhari
