Farewell to Madinah

Today we leave for Makkah to visit the House of Allah in order to perform `umrah (the lesser pilgrimage). This morning after fajr, the brothers visited Jannah al-Baqi` in the company of Shaykh Yahya Rhodus and Shaykh Dawud Yasin and greeted the Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them), some sahabah like Uthman ibn `Affan (may God be pleased with them) and some of the Imams of the Muslims like Imam Ja`far al-Sadiq and Imam Malik ibn Anas (may God have mercy on them).

Afterwards, people ate, packed, showered and changed in preparation for the group's departure for Makkah after Zuhr. Many of us tried to visit the rawda and greet the Prophet, peace be upon him, one last time before leaving. Some of us feel fear that we may never be able to return here again, but we have made intention to do so nonetheless.

May Allah unite us with al-Mustafa, peace be upon him, all who he loved and all who loved him, in Jannah al-Firdaws for all eternity.

Ameen inshallah Allah invites us to His beloveds land again, it was very hard for most of us to leave madina...but I think once we got to the meeqaat we were more into the umrah mood and excited that soon we will be doing ziyarah of the Ka'bah.
BTW 'rihla companion' we left of sunday remember??..we were meant to leave on saturday but due to some complications we left on sunday instead.
