Fatemeh Hoseini Alaei, Zahra Jalali Shoure Deli
Pages: 1-7
Hajj is one of the transcendent minor parts of Islam. Hajj is clear proof of Muslims’ attempt to maintain one pillar of the human society and attend to social, political and cultural issues that is as widespread as other Islamic issues. All doings of the hajj ceremony by the participation of people with various cultures and complexions creates a considerable stir alongside this-worldly and other-worldly effects. The fundamental substantial effect of this divine ceremony is to recognize people of the Islamic- human society from each other, insomuch that if the hajj doings are effectively implemented, the great Islamic world will be able to achieve unity. The substantiation of the resurrection and the humility of everything towards God can be mentioned as otherworldly effects of hajj. The present research is aimed to assess the effects of the hajj from the viewpoint of revelation and from the language of Ali (PBUH), the cousin and son-in-law of the prophet Mohammed, and to propagate the rich culture.
