Secrets of The Hajj
Written by Ayatullah Al-Hajj Ash-shaykh Husain Mazaheri
Translated by Saleem Bhimji
The person should not perform hajj simply for people to congratulate him; Or, may Allah protect us, to make other people work hard and go through troubles, meaning his hajj is not simply to use other people. In fact, his hajj should not even be for Allah to bestow upon him, both in this world and in the next, blessings and bounties. Rather, all of his attention and focus on this journey must be for Allah, the goal of reaching him and true worship, such that no one else or anything except the pleasure of Allah is in his sight.
