Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu.

I pray this reaches you in the best of conditions. Aameen.

Alhamdulillahi Rabbil 'alameen, we are glad to announce the launch of a new course titled Soul of Hajj (FQH 053). This can be accessed under Level 5.

The "Soul of Hajj” is a spiritual guide to Hajj where all the components that make up hajj are explained by Dr. Aboo Ameenah Bilal. The focus is on the spiritual aspect of the Hajj, as it is in understanding the inner aspects of Hajj that we can make a Hajj acceptable to Allaah.

The main goal of Hajj is to establish the remembrance of Allah in our hearts by having us go through a variety of different rites and rituals, constantly remembering Allah. We should be aware in all the various rites and rituals of the hajj what the individual character changing or modifying goals are. These are the sub goals which help us to achieve that remembrance wherein we are blessed with the purification from sin and ultimately paradise as the reward for the accepted hajj.

This course is an effort to awaken the Ummah from the state of ignorance and obsession with rituals while at the same time being unconscious of the goals of the rituals. It will keep us focused on the spirit of Hajj, give us a sense of humility by which we can truly worship Him as He alone deserves to be worshiped.

May Allah make your affairs easy for you. Aameen.

BarakAllahu feekum.
