Women & Hajj by Muhammad Alshareef

The author of the book wrote “The goal of this term paper was to give the Muslim woman a chance to see those Fiqh rulings that are specific to her in Hajj – since many a time her rulings are lost in the general discussion of how to perform Hajj. In the end one should have a general idea of those things that a woman differs in Hajj from men. They should be able to recognize differences in ritual worship between the women and men. And they – inshaAllah Ta’ala – should get a clear understanding of issues that are commonly differed upon. After having been given the opportunity  – Alhamdulillah – to attend Hajj for a few years, the subject that came to mind to write about for this course of Fiqh Al-Kitaab was Sunnah was that of women in Hajj. Because of the lack of experience people, not specifically from North America, have with the rites of Hajj, I wanted to give the Muslim woman a chance to look specifically at those things which she needs to focus on and understand. With the intention of writing a term paper that would elucidate the Fiqh rulings specific to women in Hajj, I went about organizing the topics under three chapters, the first dealing with Ihraam and the second with ritual differences between the men and women.
