Welcome to a once in a life trip to Mecca and Madina. Experience the rising of the Super Moon.
Join Drs. Mujahid and Ayesha Din in the holy land of Mecca and Madina.
An aerial view of the holy city Mecca
The rising of the super moon is a rare phenomenon of nature when the moon comes very close to the earth.
Lucky are those who experienced it this time!
Thanks to my brother Dr. Mujahid and wife Dr. Ayesha Din for sharing the superb pictures of their experience in the Holy Land.
All ready to perform the sacred rituals
Thousands of devotees performing Tawaaf
Walking briskly from Safaa to Marwaa.....can be tiring but they have the energy-praying and having sips of revered 'zum zum' (holy water)
Worshippers gathering around the holy Kaaba
If you manage to 'kiss' the Hajr-e-aswad, you are really lucky as it can be quite a battle to get so close.
After completing the Umra - clean shaven and so happy!
