It’s worth alot more than I used to think. Today, here in Makkah, I have made a big decision that I want to let go all the things that stop me from having a happy life and good future. I know God is always with me. And there are many people who love me.
[mobile post] I love love LOVE Saudi Mobily 3G internet.. so darn cheap and fast!
8.14pm, 16 Zulhijjah 1429. I am now sitting at the Marwah endpoint, have just finished doing Saie, hereby completing my final Haj task.
I DID IT! YAY!
Alhamdulillahi Rabbil Alamin. Hope You’ll accept ilyani’s Haj please. TQ. You’re great. I love You.
And I’m getting better :) still coughing here and there but the pain is practically gone.
Tomorrow I’m definitely going for shopping, I need to get a neat dress I can go around pretending as an Arab woman. Har har.
That I hardly could describe. Only God knows and only Him who could explain why things keep happening in such a magically strange way, that nobody would expect it could happen in anywhere but here. And this applies to both good events and bad events.
And only at times like this, you will realize how powerful He is. How He really does exist to listen to your prayers and make it true in instance. Also, how He really is able to punish you in instance just as well.
To put it in a simple sentence, right now for past few days I have been the sickest I ever felt in my entire life. I dont want to question why it happened this time, I cant blame the weather, I cant blame the dusty air. It is my punishment.
About the Hajj. I have done Wuquf at Arafat, which happened to have its own magical events also. Have done mabit in Muzdalifah to pick small stones, and 3 times to throw the Jamrat in Mina. Big tasks need big patience. Back to Makkah, and now I am waiting to do two last parts, while getting some rest.
Until next post. When hopefully I will be better. And Happy (belated) Eid.
I am here.
Yes. I mean I AM here.
Arrived in Jeddah airport 10pm local time on Thursday, and right now I have been in Makkah for almost one week. I can’t write much now coz the internet in this hotel is damn expensive, though I can get online on my mobile via Saudi’s Mobily (it’s much reliable than Celcom broadband, sigh) to check my emails and write on WordPress, I can’t upload pictures with mobile! (or maybe there’s a way, but I have yet to find out). And apart of the glorious Masjidil Haram itself, and the Kaabah, I am endlessly amazed by bunch of people here, we’re getting 2millions or more filling up Makkah by this day and the number is increasing like crazy.. people are still coming from every angle of the world until the Hajj session starts which will be a few days before Eid. Every prayer time those 4 floors are always full and even the mosque yards and on the street are full with people praying, it’s like real HUGE feast and even though you don’t like crowds but THIS crowd is like pure heaven! I am glad I am in the middle of this busy Holy city in this particular time. Alhamdulillah.
I want to write more and put more pictures but I don’t have much time I have to run. See yeh.
We are departing tomorrow morning. Bye bye, hope to see you again.
