The Road to Mecca

£29.99

Product description

The Road to Mecca

Muhammad Asad

Islamic Book Trust, Kuala Lumpur, 1996; 2nd reprint 1999.

First published by Simon & Schuster Inc, New York, 1954.

Paperback; 145 x 215 mm; xi & 380 pages; illustrated. No dust jacket.

The book is in very good, near fine, condition. The binding is sound and tight. Inscription in black ink on the fly title.

“The Road to Mecca” is the autobiography of Muslim scholar, intellectual, political theorist and spiritual writer Muhammad Asad. It “is not a travelogue one picks up to read about the conditions of the people and landscape of a country in the distant past; it is an absorbing personal saga of a man’s ‘home-coming’ to Islam, the religion of his ‘fitrah’ (nature).”

“This, then, is the story of my road to Mecca: the story of the home-coming of my heart, as I began to understand it during those distant days in the late summer of 1932, when we rode, rode, two men on two dromedaries, from the northern confines of Arabia towards the south.”
