I took this photo of the Kaaba about three years ago. We were on Umrah. It’s my favourite image from that time and I wanted to share it with you all today.
Eid Mubarak and a huge congratulations and welcome back for all those returning pilgrims who have completed Hajj. We hope everyone is having a beautiful blessed Eid. Our prayers go out to those who are displaced this Eid ~ may your homes and hearts be filled with peace where ever you may be.
For my Kids this Eid is all about Prophet Ibhrahim and Prophet Ismail, and my son whose namesake is the latter was three years old when we took him on Umrah with us. He was familiar with the story but when he saw the Kaaba in real life it really was an unforgettable moment for us all.
Have you seen the Kaaba? What did it feel like the first time?
