Description :

Pilgrimage in Islam - 'A Comprehensive Guide to Hajj' is an extensive manual describing the Hajj--a journey that enlightens the significance of human existence and submission. This guidebook offers advice for those undertaking the holy voyage and gives the meanings behind its rituals from a Hanafi Sunni perspective.
With special attention to the people who make the journey--approximately three/four million Muslims a year--this reference illuminates the importance of one of the fundamental forms of Islamic worship as a social and cosmic transformation.
"Muslims who perform the Hajj sincerely acquire beautiful attributes, like patience - enduring distress and difficulties with tolerance, reconciliation, cooperation and flexibility. The Hajj takes its visitors on a voyage which is over 14 centuries old. It allows these visitors to spiritually come together with the beloved Prophet Muhammad, ﷺ, and reminds them of the great efforts and struggles exhibited in those places. At the same time, the Hajj presents a scene from the Day of Resurrection, reminding pilgrims of the reality that they are but guets on this fleeting earth."
