Only God knows how much I’m missing these places right now. It was my first Umrah experience and despite it being my first, it felt like I belong there and I was coming home to a place that has always felt like home.
And it is really true when people say that words can’t truly describe how it feels to be in Mecca and Madinah. It is a feeling that only you and God knows as each individual experience the spiritual journey differently.
“Whenever you’re alone remind yourself that the Almighty has sent everybody away so that it’s only you and Him” – Muftimenk.
