Book Title: The Road to Mecca

Author: Muhammad Asad

Book Description:

This is one of the few books I had a chance to give to my late father as a gift. It recounts an extraordinary journey of a European who embraced Islam. It takes place in the 1930s in the Saudi desert when the sky was still unpolluted and life was simple, before the advent of oil wealth. The book describes a spiritual journey in search of the Creator. It is a fascinating story that bridges the gap between the East and the West from both spiritual and cultural perspectives. Its relevance to current times cannot be overstated.
