this is a wonderful video. the three personal stories from malaysia, south africa and the united states... provides the viewer with different - yet similar - journey to the house of god.
a black, white and asian muslims-- these three different lives from the rich in malaysia, and the working in the united states and poor of south africa-- take you on the journey from a-z hajj.
you see from the preparations in their respectives homes... to the final arrival at the ka'bah, in the heart of the masjid el haraam or the sacred mosque. their rites. their pains. everything.
this is a wonderful addition to any library. enjoy it!

"An excellent report about Mecca, although the comments are a little different as on the sunna (Moslem Traditions), such as for example the history of Abraham and well of other subjects. However, the documentary is new for those which would like to know Mecca and its importance in the heart of a Moslem. In connection with South-African which was seen directing towards the camp-site of Africans of its country in the place to be with everone, it is especially not an act of racism: what he did not understand, nor the producers of the documentary, in the Mecca, the camp-sites are by countrys, so that when one loses oneself or his self, he can find or to be easily direct towards the camp-site of his country."

"This was an excellent in-depth look at the Hajj or pilgrimage made by thousand of Muslims every year from around the world. This National Geographic DVD covers all the basics and alot more. I would reccommend this for Muslims and Non-Muslims alike"
3 stars because it is too short

"The video is well done, and beautifully photographed, as you'd expect from Natl Geographic. It is very educational as far as what people actually do on the Haj. I had thought the walking round the Kaaba was the climax but not so. Short, but good insight into something most non-muslims would never have the chance to see."
