My Hajj

I cant beleive I have been for Hajj, Alhamdulillah :)
It was super fantastci, I loved the expereince of hajj, so symbolic and so powerful. I felt so close to Allah, I sae Him everywhere, I felt Him all the where else in the world comes close...
Of course I missed home, but I didnt miss the worldliness of this place...
Going away really helped me break through the routine of my life..I no longer say"on saturdays I have to do this..." etc I just make up things as the time goes along. I also re evaluate this worth it? Is this worth my time? Can i push myself? Why cant I read more after salaah? What am I replacing with extra reading and sitting on the musallah?
I cant belive how I actually changed my dressing, Alhamdulillah! Wearing abaya/cloak now :) Look its hard, im not going to work anyway..but so far havent found a single reason strong enough to tell me to stop so here goes, IA!
Strong faith is the biggest lesson for me...believing in Allah and seeing duas come true is what I learnt the most...God, I miss that place soo much! Everyone doing the same thing, thinking the same thing, for one purpose alone,..powerful!
And Madinah.....Ya Allah i LOVED it so beautiful..I really felt so close to Rasullulah (SAW)...spoke to him, cried by him..made so much dua in Masjidun Nabawi
Id love to go again IA..but with a breakand after longing to go really appreciate it
My 40 days are up not my own again :) May Allah accept all my duas, all our prayers, our Hajj and everything we do from now onwards
Oh also tawaf...knowing that all your duas are accepted! so mashallah! i just asked and asked for everything that I wanted...I want it all to come true, IA.
just want to keep it up IA!

This seems an insignificant detail but which group did you go with?

I was also priveleged to be there and I had real good time...religiously of course.

Alhamdullilah, that's amazing and i'm so glad u got to go at a young age. we also want to go soon as possible. i always wanted to go soon after i got married, because i think that's pretty much the best foundation you can have - the best start.

we were just talking on the weekend about how - for so many of us - it takes these life-changing events,calamities. big moments - for us to stop living in a routine; step out of our life; and look at things in a different perspective.

life in these times is just so fast paced and so jamp-packed that it really is a luxury to be able to stop and take a break, and see things in a different light.

and i think Allah uses calamities and these kinda events to FORCE us to stop, look at our lives/situations, and realise that we may not be living the way we aspire to live; and may not be advancing towards those goals.

it's sad that it takes something big like that to shake us up. to *make us* re-evaluate our lives.

but anyway, Hajj is something i hope we all get to go on. may yours and your husband's, and all those who've been, be accepted; and may you be a shining light to all who you encounter, and be a role model for us all.
