By Karimah bint Dawoud, Muslim chaplain and lover of vintage

Looking through some old magazines, I came across these wonderful fotos that I thought I would share with you, from an old National Geographic Magazine. They illustrate how Hajj was nearly 60 years ago, I hope you like them as much as I do.

As you approach Makkah these days, there is a big motor way sign that says “Muslims Only “

Muslims Only
Muslims Only

The streets look very different now, maashallah

And this is how Mina looked! Alhamdulilah for air conditioning now.
