I am married to my loving husband for more than 38 years now. I am a mother to 3 beautiful children, until 11 years ago when I lost my youngest son. Since then my life is forever altered but yet unbroken....

My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

2017 Umrah: Makkah/Hudaibiah

“Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, or worn. It is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace & gratitude...” - Denis Waitley

(Another place to miqat)

Day 08:
18 March 2017 - Saturday

Today the group boarded the bus to Hudaibiah to miqat for our umrah. On the way we stopped at the Museum of the two holy cities but were not allowed to enter as we did not have a permit.

(Only those with permit were allowed to enter)

Hudaibiah is where the treaty between Makkah Quraisy and Muslim from Madinah took place which lead to the conquest of Makkah. Masjid Hudaibiah was erected at the place where Rasulullah offered prayers during his stay. This mosque is located about 20 km away from Makkah on the old road leading to Jeddah. The remains of the ancient mosque are located behind the existing mosque.

We completed the tawaf and sa’ei for our Umrah early and waited for Zohor prayers before we went back to our hotel to rest..
