About the author:
Abu Muneer Ismail Davids is an active Da'ee (spreader of the faith of Islam), conducting classes and giving lectures on various subjects to Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Needless to say that his favorite subject is Hajj. Since performing his Fard Hajj in 1989, he has developed a deep desire to share his experiences and knowledge with the "Guests of Allah", in any way he can. In 1990 Allah blessed him with the opportunity to work in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where he resided for fifteen years. This great opportunity opened the door for him to enrich his knowledge about all aspects of Hajj from the Qur'an and Sunnah point of view. Coupled with this he was able to be close to the pilgrims, year after year, to learn about their experiences. All of this allowed him to give the reader a unique account and invaluable advice on all aspects of Hajj. The author has provided a good and plentiful source of information that helps the pilgrim to do the Hajj rites and rituals, from all sides and aspects in a correct way that is solid and established in the Qur'an and Sunnah. It fulfills the needs of this everlasting excursion in modern times. It does this in a captivating way with many original ideas. It has enjoyable diversity that attracts the reader to the peaceful cities of Makkah and Madinah especially those from outside the Arabian Peninsula. More importantly, it provides authenticated proof for all Fiqh related issues.
