This Highly beneficial booklet was compiled from a series of lectures that the Shaykh delivered in Masjid Quba for the visiting pilgrims. It was translated by Allaah’s blessings in 1423 A.H. in the Prophetic City of al-Madina.
Introduction by the eminent Shaykh Saalih bin Fawzaan bin Abdullaah al-Fawzaan
All praises are for Allaah Alone, and prayers and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon his family and his Companions, to proceed:
I have read this small, summarized work entitled ‘Lessons of Creed Acquired From The Hajj’ written by doctor Shaykh: AbdurRazzaq bin ‘Abdul-Muhsin al-Badr. I found it to be a beneficial piece of work, comprising valuable lessons about the ‘Aqeedah acquired from the rituals of Hajj. So, all the acts of worship in Islaam stand upon Tawheed, but the Hajj is specific here since this is where the Islaamic world gathers for it, from all regions of the earth, in the City of Allaah, al-Haram, receiving an education in the rituals of Hajj from the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger – sallAllaahu alayhi wa sallam. So it is a place of meeting for a training course, after which they return to their countries, having corrected much of the wrong understanding that they were upon.
So, how great is this Hajj and that which Allaah Ta’ala said to His friend Ibraheem – alayhis Sallat wa Sallam, regarding it
﴿وَأَذِّن فِى النَّاسِ بِالْحَجِّ يَأْتُوكَ رِجَالاً وَعَلَى كُلِّ ضَامِر يَأْتِينَ مِن كُلِّ فَجّ عَميِقٍ لِّيَشْهَدُواْ مَنَـفِعَ لَهُمْ﴾
<< And proclaim to mankind the Hajj. They will come to you on foot and on every lean camel; they will come from every deep and distant mountain highway (to perform Hajj). That they may witness things that are of benefit>>
It is obligatory upon the scholars to clarify these benefits and explain them to the people so they can benefit from their Hajj. There is, in this piece of work, a contribution to this great obligation – may Allaah reward its author Shaykh ‘AbdurRazzaq with the best of rewards – and make his effort of striving in this work, and in other works, beneficial.
May Allaah send prayers and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and his Companions.
