Every year millions of Muslims travel to Mecca to perform Umrah, an act of worship and devotion. They travel to refresh their faith, seek forgiveness, and pray for their needs. When you prepare to perform Umrah for the first time, it’s natural to have questions.

Here’s the book you need. It’s a comprehensive guide which contains everything you’ll want to know about the pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina. You will discover in-depth details about the pilgrimage, its history rituals, its significance, and key features. It’s ideal for students and young people, new Muslims, families with children and adolescents, and persons with disabilities.

Focusing on Umrah (rather than the major Islamic pilgrimage, the Hajj), this guide covers the views according to all four Sunni Schools of Islamic jurisprudence. Written by a Muslim chaplain married couple, it offers both male and female perspectives of the experience.

This fresh and contemporary guide will educate and inspire young Muslims to perform Umrah in the best and most religiously precautious manner possible
