This eminent work is the culmination of an epic journey along the Hijrah Route by esteemed academic Dr. Abdullah Alkadi. Incredibly, even after 1400 years, the Hijrah Route has been traced accurately using sources as varied as Ottoman period maps, historic texts and oral accounts handed down through generations among locals, as well as state-of-the-art GPS technologies. Dr. Alkadi dedicated 10 years of his life to the creation of Makkah to Madinah, which is eagerly anticipated by a UK audience following its initial release in Saudi Arabia.
Written in both Arabic and English, this recto-verso book illustrates the Prophet’s (blessings and peace be upon him) Hijrah Route in exquisite detail, identifying landmarks and locations where verses of the Qur'an were first revealed. Using metallic inks and hand drawn maps, London-based agency Inspiral Design has created a premium aesthetic to complement the beautiful illustrations and photography within this must-have book.
