As the birthplace of Muhammad s.a.w.s and a site of the revelation of the Quran, Makkah is regarded as the holiest city in Islam and a pilgrimage to it known as the Hajj is obligatory for all able Muslims.
Makkah was long ruled by Muhammad’s descendants, the sharifs, either as independent rulers or as vassals to larger empires. It was absorbed into Saudi Arabia in 1925. Makkah has seen tremendous expansion in size and infrastructure, t oday, more than 15 million Muslims visit Makkah annually, non-Muslims are prohibited from entering the city.
