Among the rights that Allah has places upon His servants is Hajj. This pilgrimage is one of the five pillars of Islam and its obligation comprises a dynamically complex mixture of rituals, encampments, journeys and other rights that provide the pilgrim with an experience that deserves every ounce of struggle is demands.
This DVD contains a lecture detailing the rites of Hajj and explaining the practical means of fulfilling them.

A 3D tour the Kaaba provides a visual reference for important landmarks.

About the DVD
A group of young American Muslims planned to perform Hajj in December 2006/1427H. They began their preparations one year in advance and held monthly meetings at their homes in order to be well prepared. They attended Imam Tahir Anwar's annual Hajj training workshop at the South Bay Islamic Association in San Jose, California. Shafath Syed, a member of this group thought it would be beneficial for many others to have access to this workshop and information.
The workshop in this DVD was conducted in July 2006 specifically for this group. Imam Tahir Anwar traveled with the group of American Muslims and Shafath Syed videotaped and photographed the entire experience specifically for this DVD so that we could share this experience with the world and be in your prayers.
