Makkah & Madinah




My brother and I came back yesterday from a 'quick' Umrah - a visit to the holy land outside the annual pilgrimage season. In a total of 48 hours we managed to visit Madinah spend a night there and go onto Makkah the next day.  We spent another night in Makkah and prayed Friday, in front of the Kaaba, before heading back home in the afternoon.



Total photography time was probably less than fifteen minutes, and naturally - out of respect - the photographs are only of the outside of the sacred places.  The images below are in order - starting in Madinah airport.

May God accept your good deeds!

This is one of the best parts of living in the Middle East - Umrah and Hajj are relatively cheap.

It is honestly a very serene and awing feeling when you are there! That is what I felt! Very nice pictures as usual!
