Ammar Awais –
This is one of the most comprehensive and authentic books on Hajj in English. It not only explains the Hajj rites and process in the light of Quran and Sunnah, but also prepares the reader for this practical experience. The book contains several checklists to enable the pilgrim to be properly equipped, and be physically/mentally/financially prepared for this journey.
The book was a great help for me during the Hajj of 2013. Although I took several other books with me, this is the only one I really needed during the trip. I referred to it throughout and especially on the night before departing for Mina. Therefore, I would advise anyone planning for Hajj to purchase this book several months before the Hajj period and read through it at least once.
