Assalamualaikum/ God Bless everyone of you. i just came back from the pilgrimage to Makkah and ziarah to Madinah. I did try to add in a few notes from the hotel in Makkah but the hectic schedule prohibited me from doing so. Anyway the time in Makkah was for ibadah, not for wordly things such as blogging! I only managed to logged in a few times for a few minutes – just to check emails and converse with the family. I have written in long hand some of my observation and musings in Makkah and i hope i have the time to trANSFER THEM HERE AS PART OF THE cHRONICLES OF THE PILGRIMAGE. For now I am too tired to continue, still in a daze.
