Alhamu li Allah, Alhamdu li Allah.
So this past weekend has been the best weekend of my life. THE best. I don’t think being anywhere else in the world would top it off.
I went to Makkah, wa alhamdu li Allah. It was a long weekend, and although I’m glad to be home in little old Madinah (it’s such a tranquil city ma sha’ Allah), I wouldn’t mind sitting in front of the Ka’aba for a couple of hours. It was so empty too, so that made the experience all the better. There was a decent amount of people, but at the same time, it wasn’t crowded, so there was no pushing or shoving or anything like that. Alhamdu li Allah.
I ask Allah subahanahu wa ta’ala to grant every single Muslim the chance to visit Makkah, because it’s truly an amazing experience that cannot be described with words.

1st time I went to al Masjid Annabawi, I lost my shoes because I didn’t remember what gate I entered from. When I finally found them, I turned off my phone without meaning to. & the worst part is that it was a new phone, and I had NO idea what the pin was because it was on the card….which I left at home. & the worst worst part is that I looked like every other women with my abaya and niqaab and my husband looked like every other man with his white thobe and taqiyah.
Alhamdu li Allah that he found me before I started crying because I don’t even know how to speak with the Saudi dialect.

Narrated Anas bin Malik (radhiAllahu ‘anhu): Allah’s Apostle (ﷺ) said,
"When carried to his grave, a dead person is followed by three, two of which return (after his burial) and one remains with him: his relative, his property, and his deeds follow him; relatives and his property go back while his deeds remain with him."

Assalamu ‘aalaykum guys! I missed you all :)
In case you’re wondering what happened to me, alhamdu li Allah, I have finally moved to Medinah with my husband, & I’ve been here for a couple of weeks now. It’s been a long adventure, and I’m enjoying every bit of it, alhamdu li Allah. It feels great to hear the Athan for all five prayers, and praying in Al Masjid An-Nabawi has been a wonderful experience.
I feel so blessed to be here, and although I miss my family and everyone back in the US, I feel so comfortable being here. Alhamdu li Allah :)
I hope all you sisters have been doing well, I’ve missed you all so much, & I apologize for those unanswered messages in my inbox. In sha’ Allah I will get to them pretty soon!

Imam Ahmad (rahimahullaah) recorded that Mahmud bin Labid (radiallaahu ‘anhu) said that the Messenger of Allaah (salallaahu ‘alaihiwasallam) said:
What I fear the most for you is the small Shirk. “They said: What is the small Shirk, O Messenger of Allaah.” He said: Showing off (Ar-Riya’). Allaah will say on the Day of Resurrection, when the people are rewarded or punished for their deeds, “Go to the one for whom you were showing off in the world and see if you will find any reward with him.
