Description :

Hajj is one of the pillars and foundations of Islam, the act of worship of a lifetime, the seal of all that is commanded, the perfection of Islam and the completion of religion. Such a worship deserves that much attention to be devoted to explaining it and to detailing its essential elements, its properties, its merits, and its mysteries.

This little book is translated from Kitab Asrar al-Hajj, the seventh chapter of the celebrated 12th-century work, Ihya Ulum al-Din, (The Revival of the Relgious Sciences). Hujjat al-Islam (the Proof of Islam) Imam al-Ghazali, may Allah be pleased with him,  invites readers to dwell on the subject of the hajj beyond its mechanics and rituals, and to pay attention to its true substance, purpose and philosophy.

Contents are divided into three Chapters:

   ---[1]. The first chapter concerns its merits and the merits of Makkah
              and the Ancient House and its essential parts and the criteria
              [that determine] itsobligatory character (Wujub).

   ---[2]. The second chapter [deals with] its outward acts in [correct]
              order according to their order, from the begining of the journey
              untill the return.

   ---[3]. The third chapter concerns its exact proprieties, its hidden
              mysteries and its inner (batina) acts.
