The Comprehensive Rules of Hajj According to the Hanafi School
Taught by Dr. Ashraf Muneeb
Performing Hajj is a fundamental part of our religion. The Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) taught us that it is one of the five pillars of Islam, and Allah Most High commanded every able Muslim to perform it, saying, "Everyone who is able to find a way to make pilgrimage to the House must do so." (Qur'an, 3:97)
But Hajj is different from the other pillars of our religion. The other pillars are performed regularly, either everyday (like the obligatory prayer), or every year (like zakat and fasting). Hajj, on the other hand, is often only performed once in a lifetime. The practical experience of doing the other pillars helps us understand what they are and how they should be performed. When we go on Hajj, however, we don't have that practical experience, and we often find ourselves in problems that we don't know how to solve.
This course is an explanation of the most famous manual of Hajj according to the Hanafi school: Lubab al-manasik wa `ubab al-masalik by the great tenth-century (AH) Indian scholar, Rahmatullah al-Sindi. Take this course to comprehensively learn how to solve both the problems that you are likely to face as you perform Hajj, as well as the problems that you might possibly face as you perform Hajj. By taking this course, not only will you comprehensively prepare yourself for your own Hajj journey, but you will also be able to perform the role of a Hajj guide who leads Hajj groups, assists others in performing their Hajj, and helps them solve the problems that they will face as they perform their Hajj.
This course is taught in Arabic, and runs for ten weeks each term
