‘The black stone is unlike any other stone. It came from heaven.’
- Hajjah Naziha Adil
As the Black Stone, so have all the rituals of the blessed pilgrimage, and the movements of millions of believers, as they fulfill these rituals come from heaven, and so too do they ascend as spiritual realities, beyond time and space.
This beautiful book, The MECCAN OPENINGS, journeys into the spiritual realities of Hajj from the teachings of the illustrious masters of the Naqshbandi Golden Chain.
However, it is not a book that ignores the physical for the sake of the spiritual. Rather, it marries them intimately, just as Shari’a delivers to Haqiqa, in the footsteps of our Beloved Master Muhammad ﷺ.”

Magnificently adorned with images from the holy land, this full-color book is one of a 2-part series on the Islam's Holy Lands, and is a sacred portal into the spiritual reality of Hajj, one of the foundational pillars of Islam.
This journey is gleaned entirely from the teachings of contemporary living Muslim saints Mawlana Shaykh Nazim al-Haqqani and Mawlana Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani, of the illustrious Naqshbandi Sufi order, as well as blessed a lady saints on this path, including Hajjah Aminah Adil.
This groundbreaking book takes the reader by the hand, from the outer form of the rituals of pilgrimage, to its haqiqa (reality) and origin, in the spiritual dominion and Divine Presence.
This book is an ascension for those who have already fulfilled this rite of Islam, a solace to those who have not been able to perform their pilgrimage yet, and a nostalgic breeze for anyone longing to return to Allah's Sacred House, allowing all to journey spiritually to their inner Ka'ba and the celestial Bayt al-Ma'mur (Oft-Visited House).
This, together with the abundance of pictures of saints and holy sites and sacred quotes, make this book a much-needed preparation for us to visit the Divine Abode on earth, in Mecca the Honored, and then onwards to the blessed city of Madina, to receive the Medinan illuminations from the precious heart of the Best of Creation, our Master Muhammad ﷺ.
