The author of more than thirty books and over 300 articles, his works concern not only various aspects of Islamic studies but also comparative philosophy and religion, philosophy of art and the philosophical and religious dimensions of the environmental crisis.

Reviews

Many books have been written through the ages about the experience of Hajj, a deeply religious rite of going within and dedication, which Muslims perform in remembrance of Abraham and as a way of circumventing the world and finding God in deep and total worship. But the journey requires much physically, as well, and makes a huge emotional impact on the pilgrims. This book is different in that it portrays in full page black and white photographs the experience of the Hajj for the pilgrims. Without captions, the pictures speak for themselves, making quite an impact. The pages of text at the beginning of the five units of the book are well written and beautiful in spirit. The sections show Arrival, Pilgrims and Tourists, Makkah, Hajj, and Departure. It is an eye-opening book for non-Muslims and for those intending to take the journey. It is an amazing portrayal of humanity's dedication to spirit.
