My first Umrah ever

Last week I went to Saudi Arabia to preform my first Umrah ever. First we went to Al Madeena (City of Prophet Mohammed) for 3 days then we went to Makka for 4 days.

It was unbelievable and such amazing trip that I should have done long time ago. The feeling that I had when I first saw Ka’aba is unbelievable, I seriously can’t descripbe it ! I just felt disconnected from the whole world and felt nothing but being with Allah. My mother, my sister, and I used to spend almost the whole day there in the masjid, we only go back to the hotel to sleep or eat. I wish I can live there near Ka’aba and I need nothing else.

Alhamdeallah, I feel so so fresh and peaceful. I am praying to Allah that I preform Haj very soon Inshallah, and I promised myself to preform Umrah each year as long as I have the time and budget to do so.

My latest updates !

I know it has been so long since I wrote my last blog. Many things happened since July (the date of my latest post). I will try to update my blog more often.

Ramadhan and Eid came and I spent both of them home doing nothing but relaxing, praying, reading Quran and having a great time with family.

September was the change point cause I started my doctorate degree ! (ya finally I did)

Just couple of weeks ago I finished semester 1 and it was the worst 4 months I ever had in my life X_x it really wasn’t easy, I had to read a lot of books and articles, write like hell and most of my assignments feedback makes me look like a student at grade 1 if not kindergarten!

It has been so so long since I wrote an academic paper, and honestly, it wasn’t easy at all.

Alhamdeallah, I managed to finish the first semester, and now waiting for the results. Inshallah I will get a good marks at least to pass this semester !
