Ramadhan kareem.

The month of Ramadhan has started and many of us must have started planning for the divine journey.


.The Umrah performed in the month of Ramadhan not only gives thawab equals to Haj, but purifies our soul .We feel spirituality awakened and devoted.

If you are going to Umrah for the first time,bookmark these ten things in your mind.They are going to be very very  useful.

Remember the gates through which you entered, stay close to the people you are with ,because the rush of people increases a number of fold in the Ramadan season.

Please please have your identity cards, the details of hotels you are staying in, their contact number and the contact number of your umrah services handy and in paper .

I have met with people astrayed with no where to go as they had accidentally missed their mobile or lost them
One of my experience was with an old lady who was separated from her husband. She didn’t had a mobile, didn’t had any contact number and no food since two day.Language is also a problem because the local language is arabic, so she didn’t approach any one. she sat in a corner since two days without a proper food . Alhumdulillah she was able to meet her husband .The moment she saw her husband ,the anxiety of separation flooded out in tears.

Pack something to eat and drink Especially when you are in a medical condition that requires you to eat at frequent intervals.
During Salah time, all the shops and business remain closed

Have a carry bag with you so that you don’t have to hold your footwear in your hands while doing tawaf.

There is a barber shop , where the males can go for the hair cutting rituals.But for the ladies this ritual can br performed in the washroom area where you cut an inch of hair yourself completing the umrah and your limits of ihram is waived off.

Do the rituals of Umrah, the sunnah way.There are large groups reading their dua loud.Don’t get distracted and feel as if you are missing something.Read your duas and supplicate and keep focussed.

It is perfectly ok to circumblate Ka’aba from top floors.When you are circumbulating from the ground floor and you want to touch the black stone, enter slowly and subsequently and once you have done that slowly you walk away from the centre. This way neither you will get pushed nor you would want to push someone.

There are mushafs(Quran) all over the place in first and second floor.Read and make lots of Dua. choose a place which gives you the maximum view of Ka’aba.Watching Ka’aba is also earns thawab.

The centre has a straight path for the people who are old, weak and who require a wheelchair.This makes Sa’i shorter.

And finally no selfies please.
You are already captured and recorded with the angels you don’t need to stop in ghe middle of tawaf and Sa’i to get a pic of yourself

Facebook Silences Rohingya Reports of Ethnic Cleansing

The social network says it’s committed to helping the world ‘share their stories.’ But when people from Burma’s oppressed minority post, their stories have a habit of disappearing. Rohingya activists—in Burma and in Western countries—tell The Daily Beast that Facebook has been removing their posts documenting the ethnic cleansing of Rohingya people in Burma (also known as Myanmar). They said their accounts are frequently suspended or taken down. The Rohingya people are a Muslim ethnic minority group in Burma. They face extraordinary persecution and violence from the Burmese military; military personnel torch villages, murder refugees, and force hundreds of thousands of people to flee their homes. Human rights watchdogs say the persecution has intensified in recent months, and a top UN official described a renewed offensive by the Burmese military as “a textbook example of ethnic cleansing.” Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees have fled to Bangladesh. Sen. John McCain, ...
