Your Weekly Digest on What Muslim Women Are Talking About

I Don’t Know if I Will Ever Go on Hajj but I Have Seen It All

by in Soul on 23rd August, 2017

In sha Allah Hajj is granted to you. I like many see Hajj is an invitation from Allah to visit a spiritual place where Muslims from every part of the world go. People who have never traveled on planes and those who have longed to go with loved ones gather in this holy place. Social media has a lot of negatives and positives too and this is one. Every year I wait for the Hajj goers not necessarily to post selfies but to share small moments of their experience with us, in times gone by perhaps I would have heard from the grapevine that so and so had such and such experience but now I can see the holy place and the diversity of Islam, it is beautiful. Twitter and Instagram have been filled with beautiful reflections and images.

Twitter and Instagram have been filled with beautiful reflections and images. From our lads in the UK biking to Mecca and seeing the moments they arrive to our Nigerian brothers and sisters dancing and celebrating the momentous occasion. It truly is a spectacular site. Alhamdulilah for Social Media in this respect.
