"During the course of this intriguing discourse, the Imam succinctly explains the spiritual dimensions of the hajj rituals, and as we see at the end of the tradition, the Imam’s words have a profound effect on al-Shibli.” So writes the translator in his introduction to The Spiritual Aspects of Hajj , a translation of Imam Zayn al-Abidin’s (as) discourse on hajj with al-Shibli.
