 “Scores of books are being written embellishing them with pictures and maps of the holy places mentioned in the Holy Qur’ān; these are not mere ornamentation, rather they augment understanding with their visual effects. Modern writers with geographical propensity have drawn maps to highlight individual and tribal geography described in the Holy Qur’ān, for instance, separate maps are drawn to depict the Prophets’ journeys to to preach their true faith. For instance, the Messenger’s migration to Madina, and Prophet Mūsā’s journeys. Several maps for all the Holy Campaigns (Ghazawāt), individual and collective maps of Ḥajj places and 5 stations (mīqāt) have been drawn, highlighting geography of routes. The present study aims at introducing, describing, and evaluating books, highlighting the different dimensions of geography employed in Islamic basic source, the Holy Qur’ān.”
