Minarets in the Mountains

A Journey into Muslim Europe

The first English travel book to explore indigenous Muslim Europe, and the first to look at its living 600-year-old culture, communities and heritage through the eyes of a Muslim writer.

Hussain does this with his family and takes as his guide the fascinating Ottoman traveller, Evliya Celebi, who wandered through Muslim Europe when it was at its cultural and economic zenith during the seventeenth century. 

Minarets in the Mountains will be published on 15 July 2021.
