Description from the publisher:
Hajj is an obligation commanded by Allah (swt) upon every able Muslim. However, pilgrims often perform Hajj with inadequate advanced preparation. This manual guides the reader step-by-step with numerous photographs, illustrations, and practical tips for various possible scenarios often encountered.
Dr. Riaz A. Akhtar, a practicing cardiologist and internist of Chicago, has assisted pilgrims during Hajj first-hand in the last several years, from both a medical and educational perspective. Similarly in this manual, he provides a unique combination of knowledge, based on these experiences, guiding the reader from Mina, Arafat, and Muzdalifah to medical questions, womens' concerns, and more.
