In December 2005 Narjis Pierre left San Antonio bound for Mecca to join approximately 2.5 million Muslims on Hajj, the foremost pilgrimage in Islam, compulsory for Muslims in good health and with sufficient funds to make the journey. As Narjis explains, Hajj is a spiritual journey as well as a physical one. This journal is a unique glimpse into a Muslim woman’s pilgrimage. Contains 43 rare photos and a 13-page A-Z glossary. A wonderful resource for Muslim women wondering what to expect on their own journey or for others wanting to learn more about the heart of Islam. This accessible yet comprehensive journal would make an exceptional text for a college-level class in world religions or Islam.
