Slide1:  May Allah bring peace upon you. In the following presentation, you will see a few rare and current pictures of Mecca. Slide2:  Mecca is a City in Saudi Arabia. A City where nearly 2 Million Muslims converge once a year to perform Hajj, which is one of the 5 principal steps in claiming the ladder of spirituality. The pilgrimage is a tradition set out by Prophet Abraham, and continues through Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Muslims the world over, face towards Mecca when they do their prayers. It creates purposeful unity and a singular sense of direction. Performance of Hajj is obligatory for every Muslim at least once in their life time, provided they have fulfilled their obligations to their family, the neighbors and their community. One feels a sense of devotement, a sense of humility, when 2 million people around him or her lose their identity and be a part of single humanity. All of them wear two piece un-stitched cloth and that really gives a sense of humility – God is great – so they chant Alla hu Akbar. Slide3:  Imagine the chaos, if every one in a temple, Church, synagogue or even in a class room sat facing in different directions and each one looked in multiple sides…. A system is developed in class rooms and all places of worship, where the students and devotees face in one direction. Take the concept further to have people pray, the world over, facing in one direction. For Muslims, Mecca is the focal point. It creates purposeful unity and a singular sense of direction. It is one of the most beautiful things – to pray in unison. Slide4:  SPEAKERS God willing, we are developing a list of speakers to talk about Islam.

An object for people to focus on. There is small stone, called Aswad, which is set in one of the walls of Kaaba ( the cube). This precious stone was set by Prophet Abraham as a marker. When the stone fell off on the ground, there was a dispute among several tribes towards the end of 5th Century AD as to who will lift and place it back. Every one wanted to have that privilege. The dispute was squared off, when they asked Muhammad, the young man who was known as the truthful and trustworthy to settle it. Being the peacemaker he was, he spread out a large piece of cloth and placed the stone in it, and asked all members of the tribe to hold the cloth and lift it in unison and proceed towards the Cube… His inclusiveness stunned the Chiefs, but they liked the solution, no one was excluded. Inclusiveness is a key ingredient in creating a just society. And that was the beginning of unity in diversity. Slide35:  Mecca is a City in Saudi Arabia.
