Hajj with Shaykkh Usama al-Attar - A Historical Narrative

The pilgrimage of Hajj that millions of Muslims embarked upon not so long ago almost certainly spiritually enhanced the lives of many. However, the spiritual benefits and purposes are not the only part of Hajj. There is also a massive historical significance throughout all areas of Hajj, especially with regards to the places visited.

The World Federation of KSIMC is proud to present “Hajj with Shaykh Usama al-Attar – A Historical Narrative”, a 9-episode series based around this subject matter. In each episode Shaykh visits the places that are frequented during the Hajj, and discusses the historical background of each one.

Safe in His house of peace
Far from the blood and screams
