About the Book: From the 9th year of the Islamic calendar, the Hajj pilgrimage was made a pillar of Al Islam. It was towards the end of the message of the Prophet Muhammad that droves of people entered into Islam and performed this hajj with him, yet only a few years before they were the same people who were driven out of their homes and oppressed. This sense of urgency in fulfilling one of these major acts of worship has carried on throughout the ages, and from this stems the importance and urgency that the scholars of Islam have placed in explaining the fifth pillar of Islam to the masses.
