Salaam be upon His last Messenger, to proceed:
on the net can you find inside information about studying
Islaam in Muslim countries with original photography
and contact information, along with real stories about
life in Makkah, Saudi Arabia, even photo essays about
the masjids and neighborhoods of Makkah?
can you find all this, and original translations
from the books and recordings of the world's best and most authoritative
scholars, and intriguing photo galleries, and
on-line courses and educational materials,
and much, much more?!
answer: Only at Bakkah.net!
may know, Bakkah.net started out on the web as MAKKAHnet
 on a free server called Homestead. MAKKAHnet
reached a rare level of success for homestead sites, with tens
of thousands of page views every month. Our main page itself
was viewed by over 20,000 visitors in over 70 countries in MAKKAHnet's
18 month history, and to Allaah is the praise. 
25, 2002, for severel reasons, a tough decision was made to
remove MAKKAHnet from the web. This decision was announced
through our mailing list. (CLICK
HERE to read that announcement)
response from our visitors and mailing list subscribers was
overwhelming! Some of our loyal visitors expressed their grief
through emails, some questioned our reasoning, and others
offered us reasons to go on with the project despite the difficulties.
We found so much support from our on-line family, that we
could not simply relieve ourselves of the responsibility of
maintaining such a benefical and well-received site.
a long story short, MAKKAHnet left Homestead and became
with our new domain name, we added a number of new features
and ideas that were not found on the original MAKKAHnet.
Here are some of the improvements you will appreciate at Bakkah.net,
in shaa' Allaah:
--- A new,
even easier, smooth user-friendly design

with each article, linking you to other trustworthy and beneficial
about each article that you can use to TEST YOUR UNDERSTANDING
of the information in that article
--- PHOTO GALLERIES,

Arabia, and other fun stuff in our INTERACTIVE FORUM
and other exciting features, we hope that Bakkah.net will find
a place in your home, and that you will help pass on the word.
have an Information
Center that keeps records of our previous updates, and
keeps you informed of our updates as they come out! Make sure

Allaah to bless this effort and to increase us all in sincerity,
knowledge, conviction, and piety.
