In each of us as Oscar Wilde said our own heaven and hell and from that our own god, in whatever way we wish to manifest god. People go on searches for god.

The Forgotten Uprising in Islam's Holiest Shrine

Indeed the pilgrims to Mecca are searching for a closer connection to their Allah and still others will go on spiritual journeys looking for god. There is no obvious place that god dwells except within the faithful's heart.

Quite a few atheists will go out of their way to vigorously dismiss the notion of god. Many cry that with all of the world's woes that occur is proof that there is no god. That somehow the idea of a god is a fixer for all our cruelties and stupidity we inflict on the earth and as such we can just keep repeating this because some upstairs parent will sigh tidy up our messes and leave appropriately afterwards.

I am no advocate for saying the innocent people of something like Hurricane Katrina or millions of orphans being born must have committed some sin in the past and are paying for it in this life.

For we all know that Hurricane Katrina was no act of god and the millions of orphans in the world is not part of some mystical plan of god's either. We are responsible for all of that.

Any atheist would say we, as mortals, have the power to create life and take it away. The universe and all in it was created by gases and we have universes within universes, not made by an obvious white bearded guy in the sky. In the few places where god has been shown as something or described, god is seen as separate from us and predominately male but looks to be human.

As this book shows people are desperate for symbols. Before Islam became what we know of in history the people of Mecca had statues to their gods and goddesses.

We look for symbols constantly to find answers to questions we can't really begin to ask.

These symbols give us no answers. Symbols are guides, however, like most guides are often misleading. In modern life we have gone back to the old god of Money.

We trail after it all our lives for one reason after another. What keeps us asking for the meaning of life?

What keeps Ziauddin Sardar believing in the holiness of Mecca despite what is happening to it? The answer is in the book and within ourselves.
