Stepping into the Holy Land 2016

Surah Ar- Rahman : "Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both [jinn and men] deny?" 

No words could describe the moment I laid my eyes on the Holy Kaabah. Only flows of tears started streaming down my face. Allah has blessed me with this opportunity to witness His miracles and magnificence, Masha Allah.

I remembered clearly the calling to the Holy Land two years ago. I always knew deep down in my heart that someday I wanted to visit this special Holy place dedicated for only Muslims. But somehow, I always felt not ready, that was until the Ramadhan in 2014.

I was watching Muslims circumambulating the Kaaba through the live link at youtube and every time I watched them, I would just cry and cry. I knew then, that it was time for me to go.

So I set my heart to go in 2015, but as Allah is the greatest planner of all plans, I was unable to go to Mecca due the change of the 'mahram' policy by the Saudi government. For years, single ladies (unmarried) were allowed to perform umrah without a 'mahram' or a valid male relative until 2015, where due to the massive construction being done at the Masjidil Haram caused the Saudi Government to limit the quota of the pilgrims drastically.

So there went my dreams of visiting the Holy Mecca and Medina. But I had faith that someday, that day will still come.

So on 30th April 2016, we finally with the blessings of Allah traveled to Baitullah (the Holy Cities) with our family. Masha Allah, the feeling of being in Allah's blessed lands are indescribable. 

A sudden peace enveloped my heart. All my troubles and worries were left behind. I felt loved, protected and safe. Almost figuratively speaking, the feeling that I was enveloped by Allah's love, almost like being in a parent's warm embrace. Subhanallah!
