Going to Mecca This picture book gives a simple introduction to the central pillar of the Muslim faith, the Hajj. It follows one family as they make their way from a London suburb to join the great tide of pilgrims making their once-in-a-lifetime journey to Mecca. It shows the rituals they perform: wearing simple clothes, travelling into the desert to pray, drinking from sacred springs, shaving heads, stoning symbols of evil, actions and observances which cause their spirits to soar as they walk in the footsteps of the Prophet.
