The author collates the historic locations of Makkah, in which the first generation of Muslims lived. After identifying these locations, the author proves their authenticity through the method of tawātur (the unquestionable authentication of a report) and shows the rules governing the visiting of these places, since they represent the living memory of nations, the standing witness that cannot lie and the perennial evidence that speaks across the generations. The author documents the historic places through biographical sources of the Prophet, his companions and the subsequent generations of followers, as well as through other general historical references on the subject, including works on worship rituals. The author identifies the Makkan relics that have disappeared and those still in existence today and discusses the two opinions held by scholars of approval or disapproval visits to these sites. Meanwhile, the book carries appendices of the biographies of a number of prominent historians who dealt with those vestiges. The book also includes a number of photographs and maps of various historic locations.
