I felt privileged to see into ali's experience of pilgrimage and what this meant for him and his family.
I will never get to Mecca, so I will never get to see what goes on. Ali brought the experience to life for me in away that was personal and honest. Ali's writing is accessible, relevant and engaging. Islam is not a culture or a religion about which I know much. Ali explained what was going on and what was required. It was a window into his journey.
I would recommend this book to anyone interested in what pilgrimage means to a 21st century English Muslim.
