Title Review

This first-hand account of the Hajj, the largest annual pilgrimage in the world undertaken by Muslims, is a fascinating narrative that captures the coming together of cultures and people that the pilgrimage represents. Written in the form of a daily diary, it is a candid account of the social, economic and political condition of the places in Arabia. Alawi bases his account on his conversations and interactions with others and his observations. He not only presents the hope, triumps, trials and lamentations of the pilgrimage but also documents the customs, rituals and practices of a community.
