Lectures on Spiritual Journey to Makkah and Madinah
By Mohamed Raza Dungersi
To all first time Hujjaj, the experience of the Hajj is enriched by an understanding of its rituals when placed in context of the action and/or the place. It is with this primary purpose that the English lectures are facilitated by the EHM, aimed at English speaking Hujjaj. The book is an evolvement of two years of such lectures.
The book gives an introduction to the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah, from its original construction to the present layout. Explanations are given to the various events and places connected to the Prophet’s times in Madinah.
The origins of the Kabah in Makkah are traced, and its connection and significance to the Prophet’s mission are explained. This is tied in briefly with the events in and around the Kabah which are connected to the life of the Prophet.
Finally, the rituals of Hajj are explained in terms of its spiritual significance and in context of our daily lives.
