I've not blogged in a while because I've been away doing umrah :)
mashallah it was fantastic and the atmosphere was amazing subhanallah.

i was really excited to go because the last time i was in mecca and madina was 2 years ago for hajj and that is where i met my husband who was part of our group, so we both experienced hajj but separately and this time we where to travel together and perform umrah together so it was nice aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw :)

we arrived in jeddah at around 10pm, we got driven to mecca which is about 40 -45 min drive, got taken to the hotel, rested a bit and then walked the 5 minutes to the haram, and seeing the haram again was amazing, the whole place takes over you and you forget about all your problems, life, bills, application forms etc... its simply serenity...

obviously i took pictures but the ones inside the haram where from my mobile as my camera is too big to hide and it would have been taken away from me, so my mobile it had to be and it did ok...

sun set on my way to medina...

they are alot more stricter in madina with the camera so i was only able to take the one photo :(

whilst i was there i took a pic of a cat what i didnt realise was that the cat was playing with something, my worst night mare a coakroach yuk!!!

finnaly some pic of the mountains on the way to jeddah

its always weird to come back after visiting mecca and madina, you kinda get absorbed by the life style of praying in the haram and listening to the adhan and generally having more ibadah in your life.
mecca and madina is filling up pretty fast with people who are coming especially for ramadan, by the time we left it was choca block...
oh and libyans where every where, seriously every time i would come to pray garenteed i would see or hear a libyan lol, mashallah :).
