Asalaamu Alaikum  bro


Okay for those who have been to Hajj, what *one* thing do you most recollect from the experience (and you’re only allowed to choose one!!  bro)


For those who haven’t been, what *one* thing do you most look forward to with respect to Hajj, if inshaAllah you manage to go (again, you can only choose one thing)

Wa alaikum as salaam

As I fall into the latter category - not yet made hajj - I most look forward to walking in the footsteps of history.  Sure the paths have been paved and there are vastly more ammenities than there were it is still doing the same things in an unchanged manner that I'm focused on.

The feeling of absolute serenity.... I've been hajj once and umrah once and it's always the same, this feeling of absolute calm and serenity descends, time passes at a leisurely pace and once can do as much ibadah as one wants without rushing.....


On the other hand it could've been jet lag

I want to return with the same look and feel the same religious spirituality that the movie character Moses had when he came down from the mountain after getting the ten commandments in the movie "The Ten Commandments."
In other words I want to come back a different and better Muslim with the best of Taqwa.

Asalaamu Alaikum  bro

There is no doubt in my mind that Arafat is the pinnacle of Hajj.

No matter how many times you may do Umrah, you can only experience Arafat during Hajj.

That said, the one thing I recollect most from being there was the night before Arafat.


I was up the side of one of the mountains in Mina looking down at the Jamarat. It was 2am so most people were sleeping although you could see the odd people milling around.

I just couldn’t sleep, I was just too excited. I kept thinking that tomorrow I would meet my Lord, He would descend with His angels and boast about His servants to them.

There are not many moments in your life when you know that Allah is with you but on that day, you really feel the joy when the time of Zuhr comes and feel the sadness when the sun sets.


I kept repeating to myself: “Tomorrow is the day, tomorrow is the day” and reciting the Talbiyah acknowledging that here I was.


For all those going, that tomorrow will soon be today inshaAllah and may you all experience the joy of that day.  bro

Walaikum Salaam,

Two moments I'll never forget:


1. Umrah - Walking into the courtyard of the Kabah and seeing it for the first time. It was a balmy beautiful night, probably around 2am after we arrived. The feelings really can't be described in words.  It was just...  like a heartbeat of delight like I was finally in Jannah, glimpsing Bait al Ma'moor. So fleeting. Don't think I'll ever feel that again until the real thing iA.

2. Hajj - Praying under the first arches with a clear view directly towards the Kabah. Thinking this image, moment is what I want to always remember every time I pray anywhere else in the world.
