batuk sampai nak terburai isi perut.. nak terseliuh pinggang pun ada... apakah...
anyway, I just came back from umrah, hence the coughs, and the flu and fever.. the perfect combo... ingatkan dah hero sangat la.. lalu kot construction next to our hotel in Mecca ie Kenzi Hotel tak tutup hidung bagai... However the effect of drinking gallons of zam zam water in mecca, really helped me (dengan izin Allah swt jugak).
In mecca, we went down and climbed up the hill every solat time, as Kenzi Hotel is located on the top of the steep hill, and next to the construction site. So imagine me donned with the telekung semayang which towards the end of our stay in Mecca has turned to yellow... and according to the pedometer in my S4 i actually walked almost 3 miles per day during my trip to Mecca and Madina.. Tapi harommm tak turun berat badan... lagi naik ada la.. hukhukhuk
the crowd was extremely congested either in mecca or madina, in fact the population was more than during the haj season.
temperature in Madina is colder and dry. Tapi akak mantain takpakai sweater hahaha. What really amazed me, we celebrated the new year in Mecca and maulidul rasul sambil berselawat ke atas Junjungan Nya in Medina. Both events brought tears in my eyes. Sambil menghadap kubah hijau yang mana di tempatkan maqam Rasulullah s.a.w, the ustaz narrated the story about the prophet's sacrifice and everyone wept in silence, digesting the story and brought it close to our heart and soul.
I am indeed one of the lucky person on earth to be given a chance to be close to him on his birthday.
We were then brought to the ziarah which included Quba' Mosque, Jabal Uhud, Mina etc. It was indeed a very beautiful experience for a first timer like me. Nothing can compare the experience of visiting Madina and performing umrah in Mecca. but, one thing for sure, do clean and empty your heart and soul from all sins that you have done in prior.
I broke my reading glasses in masjidil haram, and I know it was meant to be. The umrah was performed smoothly despite the huge crowd, and we successfully completed our tawaf wida` right after the friday prayer. Looking at the Kaabah for the last time, brought another silent tears to us, whilst in heart, we prayed that this wont be our last umrah here.
Overall, this trip was so sweet and so meaningful, despite the post-effect, We performed Ziarah wida`, right before we climbed the bus to the airport, and it was another memorable moment which keeps on playing in my mind until now. Surrounded by so many people whom just finished their asr prayer, we ( me and mom) stood there, staring at the green dome, whilst silently saying goodbye to Rasullullah s.a.w with tears brimming our eyes. We felt his love towards his ummah and we really felt our love keeps going stronger towards him. Ameen
