4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic expose' Sept. 5 2012
By Abu Abdurrahman - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful expose' into the Hajj and its history although I must caution that it is not intended as a guide for a Haaji, but rather a book intended to show the beauty of Hajj, its rites and the undertakings of those who perform and intend to perform it. Those who are going on Hajj and looking for practical information on how to perform it can also see books like An Easy Step-by-Step Guide on Hajj and Hajj and Umrah at a Glance
5.0 out of 5 stars What a treasure! Jan. 23 2015
By Audrey Shabbas - Published on
Format: Hardcover
What a treasure!
Look what I found at a Periplus bookshop here in Bali! This beautiful book was only 100,000 rp (that's less than $10 US). . . what a bargain for such a treasure.. . it is a bargain at any price! Wish I could buy a whole stack full and give them away. I have more than a dozen books on Hajj. . . several coffee table books. . .including Hajjj Paintings! . but this is most beautiful offering. . . from the British Museum and in the US from Harvard University Press. . . nearly 300 pages. . each two-page spread is its own related topic. . with extraordinary visuals and excellent commentary.
