"Dear Allah... thanks for this beautiful life and forgive me if sometimes it seems as if I don't love it enough..."

Travel Agent: Poto Travels
We had initially book our Umrah/Oman trip with Andalusia Travels but to our disappointment the trip was cancelled last minute. We made a few calls to other travel agents and at last decided to join Poto Travels as they have a direct Umrah trip on the same scheduled dates.
We joined a group of 25 jemaah and performed our Umrah and ziarah rituals in the holy lands. The weather was hot and dry. At times it was unbearably hot combined with haze and sand storm. Both of us were down with flue and coughs throughout our stay but we managed to performed our Umrah almost daily and never missed to have our prayers in the mosque.
