Syukur alhamdulillah....

Madinah Al-Munawarrah - 2

As usual, we malaysians have always demonstrated our 'malaysia boleh' spirit wherever we go and of course who can beat us when it comes to shopping and kiasu. yups, the arabs love malaysians very much because we simply love shopping and to make it even sweeter, we are kiasu lots too. whenever we see fellow malaysians buy something that looks good and recommended, we'll buy it too although we know that we don't really need it but we buy it just for the sake of not missing the opportunity. As in this picture, my abah beli berkilo-kilo kurma sampaikan kedai tu siap perkhidmatan kotak (5 riyal sekotak) supaya senang masuk kargo kapal terbang.


Mak @ kurma farm.


According to mak, the trees looked like palm trees and the kurma fruits were greenish in colour. young or raw kurmas tasted bitter-sweet but after they were dried (without any additional flavours or preservatives), they tasted sweet - amazing, isn't it?



Mak @kiosk kurma.


Abah @entrance of Masjidil Nabawi.




Shopping again?

Madinah Al-Munawarrah - 1

Inilah kubah hijau Masjid Nabawi.
Under the green kubah is makam Nabi Muhammad where his companions Saidina Abu Bakar and Saidina Umar were also buried. Makam nabi was originally his house, which was integrated as part of the mosque after many enhancement works made to the holy mosque by the rulers of saudi, over the years. between makam nabi and his mimbar (which is still there) is a small place, around 15m x 22m, called raudhah, that can be easily identified by the different colour of its carpet.
according to hadis, nabi said,
"between my home and my mimbar is a garden of the garderns of jannah (heaven)."
in other hadis,
"raudhah bagaikan sepotong taman syurga".
and it was also said in another hadis lain dikatakan,
"barang siapa yang banyak duduk (berdoa) di raudhah,
nescaya ia mendapat tempat istimewa di syurga".
That's why this small space is always crammed with people who berebut even for a tiny space to solat, doa or just recite al-quran. alhamdulillah, abah and mak was able to spend quite a considerable time in raudhah. nope, no pics of the raudhah because according to abah, there were many mosque officers there.

My beloved mak @entrance of Nabawi Mosque
Masjidil Nabawi is a very beautiful mosque that can accomodate about 535,000 people, and it's fully air-conditioned. it might be a hot place but there's zam zam water (brought by tankers from makkah) in hundreds of water barrels everywhere in the mosque and you can drink it as much as you want.

Masjid Nabawi @night.

Makam Para Syuhada (close up).

Beside asjidil nabawi is a huge piece of land (about 6-8 times bigger than dataran merdeka), called al-baqi. this is where more than 10,000 syuhadas, nabi's companions and many other great names in islam were buried. to date, al-baqi continues to be used as a burial ground and could see burials made every day (as common as solat jenazah after every solat fardu) there.

Makam Para Syuhada.

There are no tombstones, but only simple stones the size of a football as a mark. when the land is full, the bodies will be dug out and buried in one liang lahad, thus the rest of the space can be used again. in this pic, you can see there were two groups bringing jenazah for burial.

Mekah Al-Mukarammah - 3

This is the hill of safa. It used to be rocks and sand but as you can see, it's already cemented and the grey coloured area was what left as a marker. besides as one of the point (the other is marwah) where siti hajar (the wife of nabi ibrahim) ran 7 times looking for help, for her and baby nabi ismail, the hill was also the location where rasulullah first made his call for the quraish people to embrace islam.

Mak di Bukit Uhud.

'Mina Starts Here' says the signboard.

Inilah Masjid Jin. Believe it or not?

Mekah Al Mukarramah - 2

This is the stone at the top of jabal rahmah, a small hill at Arafah, said to be the place where nabi Adam and Hawa met after being separated when they were sent down to earth. I don't think this stone has anything to do with the meeting but just a marker constructed for easy reference. Takut ada jamaah yang tersilap bukit pulak.

Mak dan Abah di Jabal Rahmah.
Aren't they cute?

Abah at camel ranch located just outside makkah. These camels were reared for milk and meat. According to abah, the camels at the ranch looked simply beautiful, happy, healthy and friendly too (see how they posed for abah's camera....hahahaha). It must be because they're very much well taken care by the farmers.

Mak minum susu unta?? The fresh milk then went through a simple filteration process (nak asingkan buih susu tu ajer), bottled and sold for 10 riyal each. It tasted like low-fat milk, delicious! Yummy!

3 saudagar unta.

Mekah Al Mukarramah -1

Mak bergambar depan entrance Masjidil Haram. It has a total of 95 doors and each door is guarded by mosque officers and policemen who'll check randomly jamaah entering the holy mosque.









Abah depan Hotel Zahret yang betul2 mengadap Masjidil Haram. Di sinilah mereka stay selama berada di Mekah Al-Mukarramah. Tangga yg kelihatan tu menuju ke entrance Masjidil Haram.

Abah in front of Bukit Uhud. Abah kata, bukit nie merahnya macam tanah merah yg ada di kampung2 kat Malaysia.



Di sinilah tempat ambil air zam zam. Air zam zam is the only water kat sini. Tulisan 'Barber Shop' tu ialah tempat jemaah yg nak bercukur.

F1 Sepang 2007!

We are Kimi Raikkonen's Fan. As anticipated, Kimi will join Ferrari in 2007 for a three years contract and this will surely mean that Kimi will now have a great chance of winning the Driver title within the next two years. That also mean that Ferrari will be able to continue with their quest for more Constructor Titles in years to come.

Lambaian Kaabah

Melaksanakan Umrah merupakan impian setiap muslimin dan muslimah. Syukur alhamdulillah... 4 April mak & abah selamat berangkat menunaikan umrah di Mekah buat kali pertama. Sayu juga hati bila dpt tahu mak & abah nak pergi. Tapi kami bersyukur sebab perjalanan dari rumah sampai ke KLIA semuanya dipermudahkanNya.


Kami sempat bergambar di KLIA sebelum mak dan abah berlepas menaiki Saudi Arabian Airlines. Mak ada bertanya kalau aku nak kirim apa2 di sana. Tapi jawabku, "kaklong cuma nak mak & abah mendapat keberkatanNya serta selamat pergi & balik".


Inilah Saudi Arabian Airlines yang menerbangkan mak & abah aku terus ke Jeddah.

Inilah saat2 sayu... bila pesawat Saudi berlepas ke Jeddah tepat pukul 1730hrs. Namun aku redha dgn ketentuan Ilahi sekiranya inilah kali terakhir aku menatap wajah mak & abah. Semasa di rumah, sebelum berangkat aku telah memohon ampun & maaf pada mereka di atas segala dosa yg telah aku lakukan, aku minta agar makan & minumku dihalalkan serta doakan kesejahteraan hidupku bersama keluargaku dunia & akhirat.

5 Tahun

31 Mac! Mohd Mukhriz Danish B. Mazlan atau nama glamornya Qish genap berumur 5 tahun. Cepat betul anak aku nie dah besar. Pejam celik pejam celik, dah 5 tahun. Sempena bdaynya, aku tempah kek khas Spiderman (malangnya kek tu cepat sgt cair sebab agak lambat dimakan). Spiderman memang fav cartoon Qish sampaikan selipar pun mesti gambar Spiderman.
Majlis bday Qish dibuat di rumah nenek & atoknya , serentak dgn kenduri sempena keberangkatan mak & abah aku ke Mekah untuk mengerjakan umrah pada 4 April 07. Hepi Bday, Qish drpd ibu.
