Yan’s Hajj – The Journey of a Lifetime

yans hajj

It is interesting to note that the title of this book so aptly reminds us that Hajj is the one and only one obligatory act that Allah commands us Muslims to perform only once in his lifetime, and that is if he can afford it.

Out of the five pillars of Islam that every true Muslim upholds, namely

  1. Syahadah – the proclamation of faith in Allah and His Prophet, Muhammad (pbuh)
  2. Solat – the five daily prayers
  3. Fasting in the month of Ramadan
  4. Zakat – tithe collected for the poor, the needy and other beneficiaries
  5. Hajj – pilgrammage to Makkah

Only the fifth pillar, ie Hajj, is a one-off duty that is no longer obligatory once it has been fulfilled. Considering that the queue to perform Hajj nowadays is so long that it can stretch up to a 60 years in some Muslim majority countries, it is only logical to limit Hajj to once per person so as to give others a chance to perform it within their lifetime.

The story tells of Yan, who  works hard on his farm to earn enough money before setting off for Hajj, but he meets others along the way who are badly in need of help. So he postpones his trip and decides to help them instead. Discover the heart-warming events that unfold as Yan’s sincere efforts and generosity finally brought him on his special journey of a lifetime!

Tell Me About the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w.

 

muhammad_0

This book presents the life of the Prophet Muhammad, upon whom be peace, from his childhood in the desert to his divine mission and early preaching in Makkah. It goes on to describe the hostility of Makkans towards his message, their total boycott of him and his family, the Night Journey to seven heavens and the migration from Makkah to Madinah. In Madinah he was welcomed and lived there for ten years teaching and calling people to the divine truth. His life went through stages of poverty, prosperity, defeat and success. Yet whatever his state of well-being or hardship, he never once strayed from the path of moderation. At all times, and right till the end, he remained the patient and grateful servant of the Almighty, bringing his message of peace and truth to all mankind.

The focus throughout the book is on the spirit of the Prophet’s teachings, and on the lessons that should be derived from it for our daily lives. These exciting historical events are presented in a simple, informative style, with beautiful illustrations, so that young people may understand and enjoy them. This book is a useful tool for every Muslim parent who wish to inculcate the love of the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. in their children.
