Trip to Makkah – Umrah at December 2010 ~ Muharram 1432

After few trip to Saudi Arabia’s embassy in Kuala Lumpur…

which reside inside the “Dewan Perniagaan”..

.. we managed to get the Umrah’s VISA approval on the passport. 🙂

Then the journeys start the next day flight MH150 ~ which is departing Kuala Lumpur to Jeddah ,
at 1515H…

We arrived there around 6.30PM ‘s Jeddah time.. which is about Maghrib time..

We had a nice meal and “Air Zam-Zam” that night before completing our first tawaf and saei..
a bit tiring.. but am so excited and very grateful for being able
to visit Kaabah and doing “tawaf rukun” ( my first time as an adult.. )

Well, first time being in IHRAM.. very interesting experience indeed..

Thanks to Bajuri for guiding and assisting, touring with me during first umrah..
Alhamdulillah.. we managed to complete our first umrah by 0230AM .. 🙂
tired .. but WORTH it !!

then next day we returned back again to performed the 2nd UMRAH and
we repeat until the 7th one..
( there were said 7 UMRAH may had same reward as one Hajj )

From there to repeat was not that difficult ..

1. “Niat at Miqat outside of Tanah Haram” ~ intention at Taneem (6-8KM from Masjidil Haram) (outside the Holy Land)

there is a bus service .. which cost only SAR 2. (Saudi Arabia Riyal)

either performed “solat sunat ihram” there or not is optional as long as the intention is made there with IHRAM.

inside the taneem mosque ..

2. Followed by Tawaf at Kaabah .. 7 times.. with wuduk.

Morning time is a bit NOT PEAK hours.. so can be completed quite fast compared to other time.

3. Saei ~ between safaa and Marwah .. also 7 times.

yes.. for man it is sunat to run between the two “green light” about 150m..

“Bukit Safaa..”

4. “Bercukur”
cut some hair at the end .. to complete..

.. then can remove IHRAM all do all thing that’s prohibited during IHRAM ~ TAHALLUL..

after that i was visiting around..
get to Hajaratul Aswad.. ~ the feeling is amazing.
Hijr Ismail.. Maqam Ibrahim..

then just reciting quran or solat sunat.. iktikaf in masjidilharam..until Zohor prayer..

    but can’t just pass through .. need check-in into china .. went out of arrival hall and check-out the the luggage ..
    so apparently can get outside of airport compound for 5hours and get in back for next flight boarding..
