Our last day for our 12 day Umrah journey and our final day in Mekah.
Before performing our Tawaf Wida or Tawaf Selamat Tinggal, we took one long last look at the magnificient Ka'bah once again.



I will really miss this place. 
So crowded and yet so calming and peaceful.
A rare combination!

Our view today!




umrah dan ziarah yang bermakna



Though packed most of the time, 
there is always room for everyone.



Good Bye. 
May Allah grant us with a Mabrur Umrah and
the opportunity to visit this amazing place again..soon.


We performed our Tawaf Wida (Tawaf Selamat Tinggal) after which no photos and other activities are allowed, we need to leave as soon as possible.
So we check-out of the hotel and boarded the bus to Jeddah.

While we were in Jeddah airport, I received a call from my boss asking me if I could start working tomorrow morning since everything had piled-up at the office and I obediently said YES!

We arrived home at 5 o'clock in the morning the following day and a few hours later, I was already at work, staring at the computer at the office!
The usual life continues...but Ka'abah, Madinah and Mekah shall never be forgotten.
Our Umrah journey will always linger.


P/s I can still see the twirling motion of people at the Ka'abah, I can still hear the people calling us 'Hajjah' and 'Haji' while we were there,
the clapping sound and the shouting of "ibu! ibu!" of the women guards in Madinah,
 the tudung terbang in Madinah and all.

And the doves, lovely doves..everywhere..will surely miss all of these!





They called me "Hajjah Fatin" in Madinah and Mekah :P
I am the eldest child and the only daughter of The Hilmis



They called him "Haji Aiman" in Madinah and Mekah :P
The second child and the eldest son of The Hilmis.


They called him "Haji Imran" in Madinah and Mekah :P
The third child of The Hilmis.

They called him "Haji Amir" in Madinah and Mekah :P
The youngest child of The Hilmis


Hopefully,
Insyaa Allah,
with all these doas,
we will be invited to perform our HAJI soon.

Our forth and last Umrah today. 
Our Miqat is at Hudaibiyyah.

After subuh prayers at Masjidil Haram and breakfast, as usual we boarded the bus.
Our first destination for ziarah was the Museum of Two Holy Mosques.

The original Zam Zam well.



Later on, we headed to Hudaibiyyah for our Miqat. 
We snapped a few photos in front of what was left of Hudaibiyyah mosque before getting into ihram attire.



The ruins of Hudaibiyyah Mosque.


We had our prayers at a small mosque structure situated next to the ruins and once we recite our niat for Umrah, our Ihram started.

We were back in Masjidil Haram again and completed our fourth  and final Umrah.


umrah 2016

Never get tired of this place.
There was always an amazing feeling when I was there.


 Today was a long day.
We had ziarah in the morning, performed Umrah during noon.

And after Isyak at Masjidil Haram, we joined the group to climb Jabal thur. This is where Gua Hirak is located. The place where our Prophet (s.a.w) received his first revelation. 

After alighting from the bus, we had to take a van towards the foot of Jabal Thur. It was a roller coaster ride, very bumpy and quite a scare. The trails heading to the top of Jabal Thur were extremely steep. Some people had to give-up halfway. I was lucky to have my strong brothers with me. Aiman carried my bag and both of them made sure I reached the top safely.

It was amazing how my dad made it since he is already 51 years old.
I guess his determination to witness Gua Hirak himself kept him going all the way.

My mom could not join us since she had a bad ankle.
And my little brother accompanied her at the hotel. 


It was an emotional journey for some of the climbers.
 I heard the sound of ladies weeping as they climbed. One Arab lady even screamed because she was too tired.  Just imagine how determined Siti Khadijah was, 
the wife of our Prophet (s.a.w), 
who climbed Jabal Thur everyday to send him food.

Our view of Mekah from Jabal Thur. 
We can see the clock tower and the whole city from up here.
Amazing view. 
Undescribeable.

After subuh at Masjidil Haram, we decided to explore Mekah a little bit. 
After all, we only have today and tomorrow to spend in Mekah

We arrived back at the hotel and prepared ourselves to head to Masjidil Haram for Zohor.

And when we got back at the hotel again, our uncle who is working in Mekah stopped by to visit us and much to our surprise, he brought along the famous Al-Baik Fried Chicken and burger.

ayam albaik

This fried chicken is definitely delicious. It even taste better than KFC!
Finger Licking Good.


It was time for Magrib and we made our way to Masjidil Haram again.

Time flies very fast here since we headed to the mosque 2 hours before every azan, went back to the hotel for our meal and by the time we finished our meal, it was the time to walk back to the mosque.

And magically, you'll never feel tired but rather, always excited to head back to the mosque again and again and again.

Our view today, Ka'abah from the Mataf Bridge  after Isyak



My mom and dad , watching the Ka'abah and the surrounding from this Mataf Bridge after completing Tawaf Sunat. 

This is our favorite spot. Tengok ka'abah pun dapat pahala.

The young couple sitting next to my mum were helping each other in memorising/reciting the quran while looking at the Ka'abah.



As midnight approached, the area around the ka'abah was less crowded.

We will be performing our third umrah today. 
Out miqat is Saidatina Aisyah Mosque in Tanaim.


Since it was just a short journey, everyone was ready with their Ihram attire even before boarding the bus. 
We completed our third Umrah and stayed in the Sai area for a while. 


sae dalam umrah

Just sitting on the stairs and gazing at all these people who were still performing their Sai , was such an amazing feeling. 

You could see children running with parents, some parents carried their children on the shoulders, the elderly being pushed on a wheelchair, the teenagers running energetically below the green lights. Everything just looked orderly. Though sai is quite a distance to cover, no one seemed tired but every one looked happy instead.

And my dad and the boys decided to go bald today!


All these HAJIs still looking handsome as always!



It was getting hot so there were not many people in the mosque area.




The doves that I love!
Doves and doves wherever I go.
Amazingly, I did not see any dove in Masjidil Haram area. 
But as soon as I stepped out of Dataran Masjidil Haram, I could see them , as if they know they have to keep the area clean for prayers!

Our second day in Holy Mekah.
We will be performing our second Umrah today and our miqat is Jaranah.

Just like in Madinah, we started walking from the hotel to the mosque as early as 3 in the morning. Sometimes, one would wonder, where all these strength came from. 
Waking up at 3 in the morning and ending your day after midnight or even later and yet still very energetic to start another day. My 2 brothers would even stay in the Ka'abah area until the wee hours and still very excited to continue with other activities the following day.

And today, after subuh at Masjidil Haram and breakfast at the hotel, 
we headed to The Mountain of love, Jabal Rahmah, 
where Nabi Adam met Hawa after being separated for many years.


jabal rahmah

This monument was built to mark the place where Nabi Adam and Hawa met. 







 We can see Arafah from here.

And during our journey, we were blessed and managed to get a glimps of places like Mina, Mudzalifah and Jamrah.



This is Mina 




We stopped over at Jaranah mosque and our Ihram for our second Umrah started here and again we must observed the forbidden acts of ihram until we completed our umrah.

We arrived back in Masjidil Haram and performed our second Umrah. 


Unlike our first Umrah which we performed at midnight in the cool weather, we had to performed our second Umrah during noon. I could feel the heat but it was not as hot as summer.



Our view after our second umrah.
Another blessing of a beautiful life and a beautiful day today.

Finally arrived in Mekah at almost 10pm. 
It was hard to describe our feeling at this time. First time ever stepping into this Holy city and so eager (and nervous) to witness the Ka'abah and perform our first ever umrah, 

After checking into our hotel room and had a delicious packed of Nasi Arab for dinner, 
we started walking towards the Ka'abah to perform our first ever umrah.

 There it was, right in front of my eyes, the most beautiful thing ever, the Kaabah, 
The first sight of the holy Ka'abah will make anyone cry..I surely did.

We were in one big group with our Mutawif to guide us through our Umrah.
 But the moment we entered the Ka abah area to perform the Tawaf, the whole group dispersed. We cannot stay together in a group since there were too many people around us.

Thankfully, every family member managed to perform the tawaf, saie and tahalul.  
We completed our first ever Umrah and we were no longer in Ihram. 

After Umrah, we went up to the Mataf Bridge to get an areal view of the Holy Ka'abah while waiting for azan subuh.  

Our view after our first Umrah.

Just staring at the Ka'abah gave us great peace of mind and heart. 
And we'll never get tired of looking at those people performing the tawaf, an endless twirl that you will never witness anywhere else.
Unexplained joy to be here, only the heart knows.

Then we heard the azan subuh echoing in the air.
Facing the Ka'abah and having the first ever Masjidil Haram Azan in our ears..speechless again.. and feeling so blessed.

Our first subuh in Masjidil Haram!


The famous clock tower




We were back at our hotel for breakfast but soon after we walked back to Masjidil Haram. 
That's the right place to be.


Making our way to Masjidil Haram before Zohor.
