I feel blessed. Within 5 weeks I was blessed to visit Al-Aqsa and then Makkah and Madinah. One of the many things that fascinate me when visiting Makkah is the amount of people from so many places and every corner of the world. Every person has a different outlook, different dream, different goal but all there together asking, praying, supplicating. The ayah in Surah Haj comes to mind “…and they will come on every lean camel and out of every ravine.” 22:27.
Most of my dua’s like many people I like to keep private but on this occasion I felt I should share. Lately many things have changed in my life too personal to share. One of my main dua’s is to ask Allah to give me a sign that I am doing the right thing, I am heading in the right direction and what I am striving for in terms of deen is heading in the right direction as I always fear being misguided. Yesterday (March 25) after Maghrib salah in the haramain, a lady from Algeria came and requested to share my prayer mat, after she finished we got talking, I shared stories of Al Aqsa and she in turn shared things from her life. We then sat together to pray Esha, after lengthy conversation she advised me that ‘I need to be careful of shaitaan as he will always try to get me’ and I should ‘not worry because Allah is with me and so is the Prophet Muhammed SAW’ and I need to ‘keep going’ this reduced me to tears as I realised that Allah had just given me the reassurance I needed. I type this with tears as it was such a deep moment for me. I take this moment to reassure you if you striving in deen Allah is with you. Feel humbled. #Islam
