Oh what joy to receive good wishes from that fragrant land!
We say Alhamdulillah and we pray for our friends who have always been generous towards us, offering kind words and gentle gestures.
And how can we not be delighted about warm greetings coming from the Haramain?
So here I am extending the good vibes I received from two buddies who are still in Makkah al-Mukaramah. They sent me some lovely photos and thoughtful prayers early Sunday morning, today the 25th of sweet September, a great start to another wonderful day.
We call upon the Owner of the Kaabah
the Most Compassionate Host of the Holy Land
towards Whom all pilgrims direct their aim
to that one centre which all faces and hearts align
near and far
We call upon the Lord who forgives all pilgrims
to also forgive those for whom they seek forgiveness
Count us all in
let us know You rightfully
enable us to love You truthfully
bless and protect us with Your mercy
so we may bow to You and serve You sincerely
And guess who's the other person who sent me good wishes early this morning? Hah hah...
|Someone thought I looked like 35.|
Nah...make it 30. Sixteen years younger. LOL
And I shall drink 2 liters of water a day, to validate that : D
Alhamdulillahi hamdan yuwafi ni'amahu wa yukafi u mazidah
