They also contain illustrations when necessary, such as for the blessed pillars (Ustuwānah) in al-Masjid al-Nabawi.

Fada’il al-Hajj by Shaykh al-Hadith Mawlana Muhammad Zakariyya al-Kandhlawi

asSalaamu Alaikum,

Fada’il al-Hajj by Shaykh al-Hadith Mawlana Muhammad Zakariyya al-Kandhlawi

The author writes in his forward,

“During his tow campaigns in Hejaz, Mawlana Yusuf [al-Kandhlawi] noticed that a vast numbers of the pilgrims who gather there annually are well nigh completely unacquainted with the virtues and aadaab of Hajj. They seem to be unaware of the vast blessing of this great form of worship with the result that they do not return home with the feelings, the inspiration, and enthusiasm for righteousness with which they should have returned.

For this reason Mawlana Yusuf insisted on me that a booklet with Ahadith and explanation on Hajj should be compiled to be put before the Ummah so that intending Hajis should set forth for Hajj prepared with the proper enthusiasm for those special spiritual inspirations as are required by them. It is hoped that when the proper condition for Hajj is created within the heart of the Haji, he shall have the desire to carry out the functions of the Deen more diligently.”
