Assalaamu Alaykum Wa Rahmatullaahi Wa Barakaatu Dear Brothers &Sisters in Islam

On this great day of Eid I remember my own journey of Hajj and how it changed my perspective on Eid . . . What special memories . . . treasured memories. . . What a testing journey!! . . . But Alhamdulillaah, what a meaningful, spiritual and unforgettably blessed journey too!! On this special day the Hujaaj are very close to our heart and close in our duas.

I pray that the commitment we made as we pelted the Jamaraat, to keep shaytaan at bay, is one we commit to each and every day . . . that the strong desire to please and draw nearer to Allah is one that never leaves us . . . that Allah

(SWA) makes it easy for us to live lives of purity, living and upholding our hajj and our Deen throughout our lives. . . I make dua that Allah (SWA) invites us to return to perform Hajj and Umrah again many more times Insha-Allah, and

calls those of our brothers and sisters in Islam who have not yet been, and that each time is equally and uniquely special and spiritually beautiful and blessed by Allah (SWA). . . . May our journeys of Hajj bring our hearts even closer to Allah (SWA)!

Eid Mubarak!!

Fi amaanillah - I leave you in the protection of Allah (S.W.A.)

Wasalaamu Alaykum Wa Raghmatullaahi Wa Barakaatu
