The authors of this article examine the travel narratives of several Muslim Americans who have performed Hajj. They try to provide some insights into the different ways in which they experience the journey. They start with a discussion about the general situation of Muslims in America and explain the modality of arranging to travel to Mecca. At last, they explore the hajj narratives of the American Muslims and read some of the essential hajj travelogues written by American Muslims.
