A documentary telling the extraordinary story of the Masjid-al-haram in Makkah is to be shown in 23 cities around the UK.

The 'One Day in the Haram' tour by Penny Appeal will begin in London  on September 7, taking in among other towns and cities, Bradford, Manchester, Birmingham, Blackburn, Bolton and Glasgow.

This ground-breaking documentary by critically acclaimed British Muslim filmmaker, writer, producer and director, Abrar Hussain tells the story of the Haram through the eyes of the people working in Makkah.


For the first time ever it offers viewers unrestricted access to the inner workings of this most holy site, previously shrouded in mystery. 

The documentary was shot at 4k resolution using a variety of ground-based, helicopter, and drone video recordings to provide a beautiful and highly detailed viewing experience.

At present, the Masjid-al-haram hosts over five million people each year, especially during the time of the Hajj, a requirement of one of the five pillars of Islam, whereby all able-bodied Muslims must travel to the holy city. 

The documentary also discusses the Islamic rituals in great detail, while giving a rich history of the Haram, explaining the inner workings, beliefs, and traditions surrounding this most revered site, in a way that is enticing to both Muslims and non-Muslims. 

Director Hussain says he wants to “show how successfully the mosque is run, how organized its departments are, and how seriously its workers take their jobs.”
