Mecca is the center of the Islamic world since it is considered to be the birthplace of the prophet Muhammad and the religion. Mecca is situated in the Sirat Mountains of Saudi Arabia, in the sacred region Hijaz (Hejaz) and it is an oasis where you simply have to come to, in order to awake your faith. The heart of this wonderful place is the Kaaba in the Al-Masjid al-Haram mosque, which you are expected to face when praying. This one of a kind cuboid building located within the most sacred mosque is closed for non-Muslims who are not permitted to enter the city. If curiosity is what leads you to Mecca, not revival of faith, you should be aware of the non-Muslim policy.
6) Awaken your faith on a pilgrimage to Lourdes
Revive your spirituality in Lourdes, a small town in south-western France. What is special about this small market town in the Midi-Pyrenees region is that it is believed that the Virgin Mary appeared many times. The local teenage girl Bernadette Soubirous has seen the Virgin Mary 18 times and ever since 1858. When this happened Lourdes has become a place of pilgrimage, with many Catholics coming from all over the world to visit the place, who believe that can be healed by the spring water from the grotto.
These are some of the otherworldly holy places in the world that you should most definitely visit if you truly want to revive your spirituality and find the special sacred space that will awake your inspiration all over again. Religion is not something we should fight about. It is something personal for each and every one of us and we should pursue our beliefs in the form that we find the most suitable.
