Fantastic expose' Sept. 5 2012
By Abu Abdurrahman - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a wonderful expose' into the Hajj and its history although I must caution that it is not intended as a guide for a Haaji, but rather a book intended to show the beauty of Hajj, its rites and the undertakings of those who perform and intend to perform it. Those who are going on Hajj and looking for practical information on how to perform it can also see books like An Easy Step-by-Step Guide on Hajj and Hajj and Umrah at a Glance
