May I request you to recommend the best book regarding fiqh and method of performing Hajj & Umrah (for layman, in English or Urdu) as I hope to perform my first ever Hajj this year inshaAllah.
Assalāmu `alaikum Warahmatullāhi Wa Barakatuh,
We recommend you study Mu῾allimul Hujjaj of Mufti Saeed Ahmad Saheb rahmatullah alahy. It is a comprehensive Fiqh guide on Hajj.
We also recommend Fadhā’il-e-Hajj of Hadhrat Sheikh Zakariyya rahmatullah alahy as a spiritual guide for Hajj. Both books are in Urdu and English and easily available.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best,
Muftī Ebrahim Desai
