April 2019 – Labbaik Allaahumma Umrah

Hey Blogbees,

I feel sort of sad writing this post as there is no words I can really put down to explain my experience and how my heart feels.


All I know is I kept saying ‘Thank you for this opportunity’ ‘Thank you for having us’ , ‘Thank you for inviting us’, ‘forgive me’….’forgive us for not putting you first’.

The first time seeing the beautiful Ka’bah it was so big and breathtaking. It makes your knees weak and you become speechless. Subhan’Allah.

We booked for 10 days – 5 days Mekkah and 5 days Medina and two extra days for travel (28th March – 8th April). In cause of these dates I knew instantly it was our calling as Ibrahim was born on the 2nd of April. We completed 2 Umrah’s first it always have to be yourself and second was for my baby boy.


Picture of us after completing our first umrah 🙌🏾 . . . This Abaya was a gift during my wedding. It was my namaaz (prayer) clothes. Alhumdulliah so sentimental and meaningful wearing it during our Umrah 💕 #dreamtoinspire

I took my childhood Quran with me and an English translation Quran with us. I have never tried reading the English translation before and I was amazed by what I was learning and meanings. We use to sit in front of the Kabah for hours just watching…it was so peaceful.

As write this…I feel sad. As some of the moments and experiences are mine and my memories. I think I am going to keep it this way. So I’ll share of the posts I’ve already shared on my IG. It doesn’t feel right writing a blog on my special spiritual moments.

I would like to say…save your holiday money, put your house deposit on hold. Forget your designer shoes. And Make intention and honestly its worth it. Don’t know if we’ll be invited back but insh’Allah when the time is right we can be called for Hajj.

Only time I got emotional for Ibrahim when I saw other kids struggling with the heat. That broke me and I would literally would give the mother my hand self fan or my spray bottles.

I felt so free and had no weight on my shoulders….I would surprise myself with the knowledge I had about Islam when I was having conversations with the Umrah group. It was such a nice and supportive group and honestly made the experience. We went with Wayfarers UK, Luton group. The company is very professional, organised and gave us schedules which I thoroughly appreciated!

Inshallah speak soon.

Sultana ❤

“O People, it is true that you have certain rights over your women, but they also have rights over you. Remember that you have taken them as your wives only under God’s trust and with His permission. If they abide by your right then to them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness. Treat your women well and be kind to them, for they are your partners and committed helpers.” Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) Farewell Sermon. ‘Jabal Rahman’ the location the last Sermon was told 💕 #thaherandsultana #umrahmubarak #dreamtoinspire
