Lagerstatus: På lager.

En bok om hajj og hvordan de to hellige stedene Mekka og Medina har forandret seg, og hvilke ødeleggelser de hellige stedene har opplevd de siste ti-årene.

Sheikhen skildrer også sine egne historier og opplevelser fra sin egen hajj- reise.

Glimrende lesing.

En bokanmeldelse:
al-Hajj Gibril Haddad's From the Two Holy Sanctuaries is a new rihla of the Haramayn that is faithful to the classical tradition, and a Hajj Journal that is full of lessons for the intelligent reader. Its pertinent stories--none made up-- stand as a witness to what has happened in the Muslim Holy Land today and bring to life the age-old inherited practices of the great Hajj.

They make the heart firm in the spiritual benefits of these centuries-old traditions that have become neglected but that were always cherished by our scholarly authorities. They remind us about the destroyed and irreplaceable heritage sites, which had been preserved by every Khadim al-Haramayn until recently.

There are not only details on all the many things, but also guidance and mercy for the people of faith. It is a tour de hadji in the footsteps of our past masters--the pious and learned men of Islam. A true pilgrimage indeed, and may it be accepted as such. Mabrur!
