Hajj is a once-in-a-lifetime journey for most of us and much has been written on the legal aspects of this sacred journey. Of the most famous books in this regard, is the widely acclaimed Manāsik al-hajj of al-Imām al-Nawawī rahimahuLlah. Drawing from this classical text, Mawlānā Muhammad Ayyūb al-Nadwī al-Shāfi‘ī, has compiled this hajj manual in which he provides not only a legal text, but also a how-to guide that is interspersed with practical advice. This English translation of al-Manāsik comprehensively discusses all aspects of hajj, from intention to completion, including the Qur’anic and Prophetic supplications suited to every occasion.
Moreover, it is infused with the spirituality and consciousness which are a hallmark of an-Nawawi’s work, that have been retained across the centuries.
