One more day to go…..suddenly feeling not ready. Especially thinking about the kids…..what happens if they fall sick? Will my maid cook proper food for them. My parents are nearby but don’t think they’ll be in my house for the whole day.
I have to learn to believe that Allah is the one who is looking after the kids. It was never me or my wife. It will not be anyone else. Its ALlah the Almighty.
I don’t really care about what to wear. I can wear anything as long as its clean. Already learnt how to wear ihram. Studying in detail how to perform tawaf & saei…..and memorising simple doa. According to Dato’ Sano…..the best doa should come from the heart. Not by reading from the books. Those are meant as guidelines.
Also looking at maps around haram. Still not sure where is Hotel Mawaddah, the hotel we are supposed to stay. I’ll stay in room 402 with Prof Faris, Br Wan Hilmi & Dr Hanafi. Dato’ Sano said the hotel is near to the previous location for Sofitel (or Royal Makkah before it was demolished). If that’s the location, maybe it will very near to Safa.
IIUM jamaah will be together with brothers & sisters from African Non Arabic muassasah
