A record of the daily life of one of the great holy sites and a study in humanity, written in English and Arabic.

Al-Masjid an-Nabawi, the great Mosque of Madinah containing the tomb of the Prophet himself, is one of the two holiest sites in the Islamic world. Since the Prophet’s death thirteen centuries ago, the mosque has spread outwards from the core of the holy city. The tomb itself within the Prophet’s Chamber is a point of pilgrimage for visitors who come in their millions every year from across the globe.

All manner of expression and experience are found in the faces of the pilgrims—the old and young men, women and children—who are touched by the spirit of the place and by the devotion they have so faithfully expressed.

Nabawi is the focus of the Madinah Province and the book includes photographs of both the desert culture and the vanishing fabric of the city and its surrounding neighborhoods. Madinah, like its holy counterpart, Mecca, is a city in a constant state of transition.
