Alhamdulillah He has granted me the chance to visit Masjidil Haram and Masjid AnNabawi. Subhanallah, this is indeed one of the greatest experience I've ever encountered, with so much feelings mixed up and at the same time challenging my physical body. But Allah knows best, and He is the best planner.
The tears of joy, excitement, reflection upon myself and the sadness of leaving behind these blessed places --- is truly overwhelming. Headaches come and go, I had to take panadols and migraine meds, and its really disappointing at saddening. It really seems like my body is not fit to continuously move around... Nevertheless, du'aa is the key, and I ask from Allah - the Only One who can grant me strength.
Kids are at home. They had fever for a few days since before I left, and I can only make du'aa for them. I believe Allah is teaching me to let go and focus on my 'ibadah to Him, and not this dunya.
Al-maalu wal-banuuna ziinatan hayata fid-dunya...
There are still few days left. I really hope and aim to buckle up and use my remaining time in this Holy Land to the best and maximum, inshaAllah.
Subhanallah walhamdulillah wallahuakbar!
alhamdulillah... the picture with the Kaabah replica below was taken with my students during Eidul Adha celebration last year... Allahu akbar! We aim and we plan, and He is the Best Planner indeed...
