About the Author

Abu Muneer Ismail Davids who have been conducting classes and giving lectures on various subjects to Muslims and non-Muslims is an active Da'ee (spreader of the faith). There is no need to say that his favorite subject is Hajj.

He has developed a deep desire to share his experiences and knowledge with the "Guests of Allah", in any way he can since performing his Fard Hajj in 1989. He resided in Saudi-Arabia for fifteen years and this provided him with an opportunity to enhance his knowledge regarding every aspect of Hajj from the point of view of Qur'an and Sunnah. Together with this he was able to be close to the pilgrims, year after year, to learn about their experiences. All of this permitted him to give the reader a unique account and priceless advice on all aspects of Hajj.
