Yesterday, after Asr .. hubby and me went to the airport to send off our dear friends, sis N and her hubby , bro K to perform thier Hajj.
The airport was filled with people sending off thier friends and families.
Few of our good friends were there to send them off too, and so were her families.
Thier two kids,ages 13 and 11 were emotional and had to be consoled by thier aunts and uncles who were present there. This is a very normal sight that we will see ,especially when sending off people who are going on such spiritual journey.
After hugging and seeking forgiveness to everyone present there, both sis N and bro K had to make their leave and entered the transit lounge. Hubby and myself, then made our moved..to our next destination,fetching the kids (who were at home), for dinner.
While waking towards the carpark, we talked abt what we had just witnessed. I was indeed surprised to hear what hubby said , " I wished i am the one going for Hajj now. !"
We continued talking in the car , i could see his enthusiasm of doing such journey. I reckon he cant wait to do our mini journey ... kept asking me to plan and check out the dates etc.
I told him to take one step at a time ...... put your intention for the sake of Allah, HE will not dissappoint you...HE is the Most Knowing.
Subhanallah....... it been a long ride, especially so for hubby,who is a convert and has never been excited over stuff like this before.
Allah the Exalted said:
And whoever relies upon Allah - then He is sufficient for him. Indeed, Allah will accomplish His purpose. Allah has already set for everything a [decreed] extent. [at-Talaaq: 3]
