'Guidebook to Historical Sites in the Hijaz'
*Large Paperback - 94 pages,
Foreword by Hamza Yusuf,
Published by Deen Intensive Foundation, USA.

Description :

This book covers the Sacred Journey of the Rihla and Sacred Caravan Umrah Program with professionally taken photos and detailed site descriptions. It covers Makkah, Madina, Taif and other holy sites in Saudi Arabia.

Review :

"Ever since the Saudi government took over the Hijaz there has been a systematic effort to eradicate traces of our history in the fear that people were performing “innovations”. As a result some of the great sites where people remembered the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and his Companions are slowly fading away.

'Deen Intensive’s' book aims to reignite the passion our forefathers had for the places where our Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and his Companions walked and lived. It is as far as I am aware the only book that acts as a catalogue for historical sites in the Hijaz.

This is recommended for anyone who has an interest in Islamic history and those who have the initiative to go and seek out the less visited parts of Makkah, Medina and the surrounding areas. It also means you will have to put up with taxi drivers shrieking ‘shirk!’ at you if you want to visit some of these places. (But then again there’s always the unlicensed Pakistani driver who will be more than happy to be obliged)."---Book Review by Britishmisk Blog.
