Munayyir, Muhammad `Arif ibn Ahmad. and Landau, Jacob M. The Hejaz Railway and the Muslim pilgrimage; a case of Ottoman political propaganda, by Jacob M. Landau Wayne State University Press Detroit Thankfully, Nicholson doesn’t allow the Lawrence of Arabia story to sidetrack him from pursuing the wider picture of the war for the Hejaz Railway.

This book addresses a wide variety of topics, but the two main themes are: 1) the initial building of the railway, and 2) the struggle for the railway during World War One. The Hejaz Railway was built on the order of Ottoman ruler Sultan Abdulhameed II on September 1st CE.

(5th of Jumada first AH). The main objective of its construction was to serve the two Holy Mosques and provide a modern means to transport Pilgrims who came from Asia, Europe and the Levant to the Holy shrines in Makkah and Madinah, in addition to strengthen ties between the then.

In fact, connecting to pilgrimage places may have been a big motivation for the laying long tracks. I remember Nizam of Hyderabad had set up a rail link to visit Ajmer in the late 19 th CE.

In Jordan, I was happy to meet yet another heritage railway story – the story of Hejaz railways. The Hejaz Railway was originally built to transport pilgrims from Damascus to Madinah, where they would travel on to Mecca for the Muslim Prilgrimage. The idea was first put forward in during the height of the age of great railways around the world, but it was not until 40 years later () that the Hejaz Railway came into being.

Railway expansion was symbolic of modernization in the late 19th century, and Britain, Germany and France built railways at enormous speed and reaped great commercial benefits.

In the Middle East, railways were no less important and the Ottoman Empire's Hejaz Railway was the first great industrial project of the 20th century. A route running from Damascus to Mecca, it was longer than the line. The Hejaz Railway, set to connect Damascus and Medina, was conceived of as a project of both religious and strategic significance.

The new railway was aimed at facilitating convenient and efficient travel for Muslims making the pilgrimage to Medina in present-day Saudi Arabia for Hajj. On May 2,Sultan Abdulhamid II, issued an imperial edict, which helped sow the seeds if a decades-old dream.

Planned as a means of convenient transportation for pilgrimage to the holy cities of Mecca and Medina, the Hejaz Railway was short-lived, yet it left a remarkable legacy of the early twentieth century. From the very beginning, the Hejaz Railway attracted the attention, excitement.'The Hajj presents an impressive array of historical, anthropological, artistic, technological, spiritual, and even epidemiological approaches to pilgrimage to Mecca.

These diverse essays illustrate the variety, complexity, and endless fascination of the Hajj.'
