Sheik Muhammad Mitwaly Ash- Sha‘râwy | Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 118 | Size: 2 MB
In the journey of ever continuous giving of the venerable Imam, Sheik Muhammad Mitwaly Al-Sha‘râwy, are shining lights and inspirations that illumine the way of the seekers, guide the astray and teach humanity the religious matters that have been kept hidden from it. Done for the Love of Allah, the Prophet Muhammad (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) and Islam by Abdullah translation group and as homage paid to our venerable Imam, Sheik Muhammad Mitwaly Ash- Sha‘râwy.

Hajj…that sublime fifth Pillar of Islam, rich with farreaching
shoreless meanings, wisdoms, morals, philosophies
and symbols; a rehearsal to the Day of Crowding, a great
scene of equality where all privileges melt into thin air. In
Hajj there is a reenactment of Prophet’s Ibrâhîm (peace and
blessings be upon him) firm stand against the black whispers
of Satan. He stoned him seven times, a physical matter that
agrees with our corporality, for us to learn that we should
always stone the devil within ourselves in a nonphysical
sense, barring all his gateways to us, by our defiance to yield
to his satanic temptations until he recedes and leaves us
dispossessed of all power over us.
All hajjis came answering the call of The Great Summoner –
His Majesty, Allah, all praise and glory be to Him. All are
standing before Allah just with a seamless piece of cloth on
body like the shroud you shall come out of this world
wrapped in.
Tawâf, Sa‘y, Standing at ‘Arafat, offering sacrifice,
Zamzam…. and other Hajj rites, all have a wisdom and a
moral, all teach a lesson that we should live by. Hajj with it
majesty and the magnificence of worship in it is the hope of
every Muslim to establish the Fifth Pillar of his Islam; hope
of becoming a hajji, a traveler whose destination is the
Sacred House of Allah and visiting His Messenger
Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace.
