…SubhanAllah…such a difference from what seems moments ago when the courtyard was a buzz with the Hujjaj…

…the Haramain now enters into a few weeks where the new season Umrah pilgrims are yet to arrive… a predicted 6 million, beginning on December the 6th, Insha’Allah has been announced…

…this is the long awaited time of respite, after the scorching summer conditions, where the blessings of mild weather and stunning skies are gifts wrapped in glorious colours and hues…

…a time when the local children return to play in the open spaces…

…these were on the phone from the final days of trading for the temporary booths…all dismantled and disappeared until Ramadhan…the moods and changes are dramatic…

…no matter how kitsch these mass produced Chines imports are, the heart always trembles upon even sighting the name of our Beloved Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam…

…and trembles even more to know that whoever the recipient may be of such little ornaments and mementos from ones family and friends, returning maybe to remote villages and poorer communities, that such items will be cherished and treasured…not for their cheap monetary value but because they have come from this City of Radiance and Light…SubhanAllah…

…the last minute buying during the final days of the Hujjaj being here were frantic…the vendors must be very happy…

…sweets were being purchased by the kilos…may Allah Ta’ala plant the true sweetness of Hajj firmly in new Hajji hearts…may their experiences have a transformative and lasting effect on all they do and say for the rest for their lives and their deeds and actions have a positive impact on all encounters… Ameen…

His virtues are perfect, and were he to gift

His resplendence to the moon, it would never be eclipsed.
Despite their skill, those who have described him

Need all of the time to do so – and there is more they have not described.*

JUMA’AH MUBARAK!

*from Muhammad SallAllahu alaihi wasallam the Perfect Man.

…this humble speck has been faced with various ‘issues’, including fun in the behind the scenes of the blogland dashboard, so if comments have disappeared it is because of my ruthless attack on spam with some acceptable comments being caught in my bulk slashing and deleting…and for the while comments are now being held for moderating…if I am not replying or blogging it is because a super busy time with many non-blog activities are taking priority…all is goodness, merely shaded in a different hue…Alhumdulillah…

All good is from Allah Ta’ala whereas mistakes are from this humble speck. May Allah Ta’ala Bless all readers, bringing you all closer to Him and His Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam.  May He accept our humble efforts and grant us the capacity to be good and do good. Ameen.
