Product description:

Born in 1909, Dr. Martin Lings (aka Shaykh Abu Bakr Siraj al Din) was revered by people all over the world as a "Friend of God," a man whose saintly radiance touched the lives of all those who looked to him for guidance. In 1938, as a young man in his late 20s, he embraced Islam, entering deeply into its spirit, and the books he went on to write bear witness to the profundity and the subtlety of that spirit which he came to embody and exemplify.

In 1948, he performed the Hajj, or pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca. In this documentary film, using unique archive material, Martin Lings recollects his experience of the Hajj, along with his insight into its historical background.

In this half-an-hour documentary, Martin Lings relates of his first Hajj in the 1940's which is accompanied by old, black and white footage from Mecca. The original beauty and simplicity of the Hajj is brought to the viewer through the sheer presence and eloquence of Lings' narrative. A pure pleasure.
