Makkah to Madinah: A Photographic Journey Of The Hijrah Route by Dr Abdullah al-Kadi
By Abdullah al-Kadi, Orient East, Hardback, 200 pages
This Arabic and English book goes through the Prophet (pbuh)'s Hijrah route in detail identifying landmarks and locations of where verses of the Qur'an were revealed. This detailed book includes metallic inks and hand-drawn maps.
The book is the culmination of several years of research driven by the simple desire to determine as precisely as possible the exact route of the Hijrah. In the course of this study, the author has conducted dozens of field expeditions, collecting data, recording GPS coordinates, identifying landmarks, calculating distances, and covering as much as possible the entire route by foot.
He has also examined every available resource from Hadith and Seerah literature and narrations, to historical documents, maps from the eighteenth century through the present, as well as conducting extensive interviews with local residents to glean information handed down through generations.
