Umra Part 3 : Mecca Al Mukaromah, Masjid Al Haram, Kabah

We left Medina by bus at day 4. We did umra at this day. First stop Masjid Bir Ali, doing 2 rakaat shalat sunnah then we continue the journey by bus, say ihlal ihram and then talbiyah during Medina – Mecca. Medina – Mecca by bus is taking about 5 hours.

After we arrived at hotel, we continue umra. The first time i enter Masjid Al Haram, my body was shivering. I was crying when i saw the holy Kabah. I’m here!! Watch the greatest masjid, watch people from all over the world doing the same thing. I’m lucky yet grateful.

Number two in umra is doing thawaf, seven times go around Kabah.  I cannot take picture during thawaf coz i don’t feel to do it. I pray and pray, then i read my friend’s list. Oh my, so many list from my friend! 😀

Thawaf done, shalat around Maqam Ibrahim done, drink zam zam water done, then we go to Safa hill to do Sa’i. You see two green light at the wall? That’s the sign for male to trot between the green light.

Umra finished after Sa’i and cut our hair (called Tahalul). We start umra at 11 PM and finished it 3 hours later. We’re so tired yet happy, cause our dream and hope to do umra is done.
