Book review by Kalida Haque from Sisters Magazine: ‘Umra Diaries: A Journey on the path to Inclusion’ by Ahmed, Hussain and Lemus is a little book which takes us on a rather big journey that we would otherwise be unable to experience. It enables us to understand the obstacles that are faced by Muslims with disabilities when making their pilgrimages to the land of the Prophet (upon him be peace). It opens our eyes to a whole other world and we gain a very different perspective on travelling to Makkah and fulfilling the rites of ‘Umra.
