Even if you are not lucky enough to make the pilgrimage this year (sigh, like me), nothing but good can come from learning and preparing, because inshaAllah one of these days, we will make it.
If nothing else, may it increase our longing and desire to visit the haram and follow in the footsteps of the Prophets (saws), ameen.
ps – muslim garb watch for October 26, 2010. UmmS’ current muslim garb:
- Light blue shukr skirt
- Long sleeve light blue button up shirt from H&M
- Rainbow colored socks
- my awesome swirly shoes
- my favorite scarf – hot pink with flowers
No count of how many people I have terrified thus far today. I’m betting it’s in the dozens at least.
