Every Muslim is enjoined to perform Haj at least once in a lifetime when he/she is by the means to undertake such a journey. Today the cost of completing this journey is quite substantial, and it is, therefore, sensible to perform the rites of Haj correctly as intended by Allah and His Messenger ﷺ.
This comprehensive and in-depth publication expounds the manner and method of performing the rites of both Haj and ‘Umrah by both the Shafi’i and Hanafi schools of thought. It discusses in detail the history of Haj and its directive, virtues, compulsion, when it became far, the excellence of Makkah and its grade above Madinah. It further discusses each and every principle and action of Haj from the niyah, the donning of the ihram and its ramifications, the rules for the correctness of Haj, the rules of tawaf, the sa-‘im, the sunnan of wuqoof, its wajibaat and its significance. The rites to perform during the five actual days of Haj and the pelting of the Jamaraat as the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) performed it are discussed in detail. Added benefits are the detailing of subjects such as the origin of zam-zam, qasr (shortening the salah) Salah, the joining of two prayers, the hadee and the Qurban, visiting the grave of the Prophet and the graves of his Companions.
The du’ahs for all the rites are provided both in Arabic and in English. The discussion of celebrating Eid-ul-Adha with Makkah has been added, detailing the dispute, the sighting of the new moon, the fatwa (judgement) from the Shaykhul-Azhar (Head of the Al-Azhar University in Cairo), the universal Islamic calendar and the conclusion.
Numerous Qur-’anic texts and Ahadith are cited to prove to the reader that there exists only one way of performing Haj and that is the correct way.
“Righteousness can only be attained if we follow and observe the principles which lead to righteousness. To perform a righteous Haj we must first know the meaning of the word Haj, its purpose, significance and the rules and regulations of these rites rather than being obsessed about performing the rites. Haj in effect is man’s evolution to Allah…It is a time of self-discovery.”
