Ramadan Umrah

23 Aug 2010  4 Comments

On the first day of Ramadan, we went to Madina and Mecca for Umrah. It was my first visit to Madina and my first Umrah during the Holy month Ramadan.

The Madinah fotoor was great, I went to the Al-Masjid Al-Nabawi 45 minutes before Maghreb prayer to read some Quran and pray.When I entered and was looking for a place to pray I didn’t find a place at all. At first I thought that it was just the section I’m in, but after walking around for the next half an hour I realized that the whole mosque has been converted to the biggest dining hall ever. I mean the whole time I was walking around looking for a place to pray, I was invited to have a seat and join them for fotoor. With 10 mins left till Maghreb prayer I just gave up and sat in the next available seat. After athan in 10 minutes the place was spotless and there was no sight of anything to do with food and all were ready to pray.

After 1 night at Al-Madina we drove to Mecca for Umrah. It was a 4 hour drive to mecca and could see the huge new clock from a few kilometers away. It was hot and humid but not undoable.

During Friday prayer it was so crowded that people even managed to fill the mall thats in front of Al-Haram. Not just that but all 3 floors of it.

I didn’t know that Taking pictures in both Al-Haram and Al-Masjid Al-Nabawi is not allowed. but there was still people taking pictures. Most of my pics were during night time, I didn’t have any intention of carrying around my camera while the sun was still shining.
