Hajj December 29, 2005Posted by Muhajirah in General, Islam.
Insha’Allah you are all well.
And so, a couple of days till the New Year. I’m not looking forward to it at all, due essay deadlines and exams. But I can’t wait for Eid. I can’t believe it sooo near – it seems like yesterday that I was being bored, missing mum for little Eid (lol – Eid ul-Fitr I mean).
Hajj season has also began, ppl are making their way to Makkah. I was watching the Friday Khutba last week and boy was it packed! Subhan’Allah it’s amazing! I wish I was there!
May Allah make it easy for the hujaaj and accept their pilgrimage!
I wonder what it’s like living in Makkah or Medina. I personally prefer Medina to Makkah – Subhan’Allah words can’t describe the serenity you feel there. I Alhamdulillah have had a chance to travel to the two great cities. I can tell u, the day we arrived in Medina is still crystal clear in my mind! I’ll blog about it one day (if I haven’t already – can’t remember). While we were in Makkah, my dad made friends with the hotel owner – he lives in Makkah (obviously) and had performed hajj a whopping FIVE times (May Allah accept them). These days I am always thinking how I could go and live there. Mum says its mega hard to get residence there – people would be flocking there otherwise. Hmmm, I guess am just gonna have to marry a Saudi!
