In Production

Nadiya Hussain goes on an intensely personal and emotional journey when she follows the world’s greatest pilgrimage, The Hajj. With her empathy, wit and wisdom, Nadiya is the perfect person to bring one of the world’s truly great spectacles to life for an audience who may know little about it. 

The series will follow Nadiya from her preparation in England, to her arrival and exploration of the exclusively Muslim city of Mecca, through the exhilarating, gruelling and spiritually uplifting five days of Hajj with its rites and mass movement of three million people, and onto the great mosque of Medina and Muhammad’s tomb.
