View from inside Masjidil Haram, Mecca, June 2011

Assalamualaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

Alhamdulillah, I'm back from my two week trip! To those who guessed that I went for Umrah, well you people are a clever lot aren't you? JazakumAllah khair for all your well wishes. My family and I spent eleven days in Saudi Arabia and three days in Qatar. We had an amazing time, shukur alhamdulillah.

Write more tomorrow, inshaAllah.

xoxo, Sha

Nur: InshaAllah I hope you and your family will get to go soon. Alhamdulillah we caught a bad cough but recovering really well now.

Rahma: No way! How awesome. I just checked out your posts. I wonder if we ever bumped into each other but just didn't know it lol.

Simmy: JazakAllah khair for your dua sis. I pray your turn to go will be very soon. You never know! Just make dua =)

RS: Aww thank you. You always give the most positive vibe on my blog. *Hugs* Hope you get over your jetlag soon!

shaz: Wasalaam Shaz, hmm a couple of people emailed me about Umrah. I hope I managed to reply you. Yes, Mekah memang sedang membangun right now. It's soo dusty because of all the construction =( They are expanding the mosque too!

washi: InshaAllah Ameen sis =)

Anon: April? It must've been a bit cooler then. Lucky you lol. It would've been nice to have met a fellow blog reader! InshaAllah your next Umrah won't be too far along

Alhamdulillah! Thanks for the beautiful picture, sis. One question: is it ok to bring (and use) cameras inside Masjidil Haram?

Shahirah Elaiza said...

Dee: Yup it's fine but not in Masjid an-Nabawi (except in the men's area).

Rahma Fateen said...

Yeah!
ohh, I wish I've seen you :(
another time Insha'Allah :)
