Going to Mecca

2012

by Na'íma bint Robert and Valentina Cavallini

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

Rodeo is the number-one most exciting sport out West. Not so sure? Take a look"-- Provided by publisher
