A pilgrim's account
Abdul Matin, from Bangalore, India, is keeping a blog as he takes part in the Hajj pilgrimage. He says:
"It was heartening to see both Sunni and Shia, Kurd & Turkmen and other people standing shoulder to shoulder without any problem. A feeling of universal brotherhood was in the air and people who were intractable enemies were now bosom friends."
Great to see Universal Brotherhood, Alhamdulilah
Thanks Zain for your hajj coverage and those Africans who reminded your proper dressing code may Allah bless you all.
Indeed, Muslims must all be united regardles of affiliation, (be it political or religious affiliation). Its just but saddening that we, the entire umma, seems to be devided in the midst of the critical situations where we ought to stand as one. Let us set aside all differences, and let all night mares be by gones. May we all be united in the name of Islam. More power to the team!
Yes when i went to umrah, i saw so many different muslims from so many different countires all together, it was strange but comforting
