Alee Ibn Wahf Al-Qahtaani
Invitation To Islam
This is a concise book containing the merits, the manners and the rulings of Hajj, Umrah and the visit to the Prophets (peace and blessings be upon him) Masjid. It clarifies all the needs of the pilgrim from the time he leaves his house until he returns to it safe and sound, insha'Allaah.
All the points are backed with evidences from the Qur'aan and the Authentic Sunnah. The matters which were difficult for me were clarified from the rulings of Shaikh Abd ul-Azeez bin Abdullaah bin Baaz, rahamAllaah, may he be raised in status, and I took from what he had concluded. May Allaah reward him with goodness. Then this book was reviewed from the beginning to the end by Shaikh Abdullaah bin Abd ur-Rahmaan al -Jibreen. His work was both excellent and beneficial, may Allaah reward him with good. (from the authors introduction)
This is one of the most comprehensive books on the subject of Hajj, Umrah and the visiting of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) masjid. To further add to the beauty of this work is the fact that the original work by Alee alQahtaani had been checked by the noble scholar Shaikh Abdulla alJibreen. The translator of this book has further added an appendix at the end of this work which outlines common innovations performed during the Hajj and Umrah. This appendix was translated from the book'Manasik ul-Hajj zeal Umrah' of the allaamah Shaikh Nasiruddin al-Albaani rahm Allaah.
