ABOUT THIS BOOK:
For the more than five hundred million who call themselves Muslim this is the official guide to the Sacred Journey, the Pilgrimage to Mecca, and for non-Muslims it is a gateway opening on to another world, the first full-scale picture of Islam as it appears tot he followers of the Prophet Muhammad. The complete text, in English and Arabic, has the unqualified endorsement of the two great schools of Islam, Shi'ah and Sunni, a fact of unique and unprecedented importance. The world is witnessing an Islamic Renaissance and this book offers an authoritative key to understanding the emerging African, Middle Eastern, and Asian nations.(Publisher). Good / good. Item #10802
