In the Footsteps of the Prophet

A unique retelling of the famous Hijrah story through the landscape and previously unseen artifacts from collections around Saudi Arabia.
For fourteen hundred years the story of the Prophet Muhammad’s movements during the famous Hijrah “migration,” from Makkah to the oasis town that would become Madinat an-Nabi, has been told and retold by generations of Muslims throughout the world. This story, one of endurance overcoming adversity in pursuit of the religious freedom to establish a nation united by bonds of brotherhood and faith, has continued to be an inspiration from which renewed meanings have been drawn. This book sets out to follow the Hijrah, situating it within the geography over which it unfolded. The book uses the sacred landscape of the Hijrah as a receptacle for the stories, memories, and events that took place along the route, providing tangible links between us and this momentous journey.
