Arafah 2010

As Salam Alekoum

This time last year, I was in Arafah. I was sitting on the carpeted ground in our camp area, leaning my back on my mother's legs whom was sitting on a chair (she can't sit on the ground due to leg pain). I spent the day reflecting on my life, conversing with Allah with Duaas and thanks, and reading Quran. I remember also eating lots of those yummy salted crackers to keep my energy up lol.

It's been one whole year Subhan Allah. I'm fasting today, and I am experiencing severe nostalgia lol. May Allah bless me, and all you dear readers, with Hajj and the chance to be in the sacred place of Arafah.

Spend the day in doing thikr. As the saying goes, make your tongue moist with rememberance of Allah. Reflect on your life, make Duaa and give thanks =)

‘The best of supplications is the supplication on the day of ‘Arafah and the best which I and the Prophets before me have said (is):

La illaha illa Allah wahdahu la shareeka lah, laho almulku wa laho alhamdu wa hoowa 'aala kuli shay'en qadeer

‘None has the right to be worshipped except Allaah, alone, without partner. To Him belongs all praise and sovereignty and He is over all things omnipotent.’

Sara, I too was there last year, and nostalgia has gripped me too. Thanks for sharing. And for the advice regarding the du'a. It will help ease the longing. May Allah bless us with visiting His house again soon.
