Author: Fathi Fawzi Abd al-Mu’ti

The book begins with a discussion of the sacred nature of Makkah Al-Mukarramah, the boundaries of the Haram (Sanctuary) and its sanctity. Then it discusses the superiority of Makkah and narrates Ahadith to that effect. Then it mentions the names of Makkah and the significance of these names. This book also speaks of Ibrahim (Abraham) and Isma’il (Ishmael) (peace be upon both of them) and their connection to Makkah and its sanctity and development. For Makkah derives its sanctity and high status from the presence of the Ka’bah in the city. This book is devoted to the Ka’bah and discusses its origins and construction, the connection of Hajrah (Hagar) and Isma’il (Alehissalam) to it, what has happened to it as it has been destroyed and rebuilt throughout the ages, and who its custodians have been. The book also discusses the holy places that are connected to it, such as the Maqam (the Station of Ibrahim), Al-Hajar Al-Aswad (the Black Stone), Al-Hijr and Al-Multazam.
