Just back from an amazing trip to Masjid Al-Aqsa in Palestine (in Arabic known as Al-Quds or Bayt Al-Maqdis) with my daughter Amina. We spent a week there with an extremely well organised and experienced group called Al-Baruj. There were around 100 people from all over the world but the majority from the UK.
It was an amazing amazing experience easily compatible with Hajj but in different ways – words cannot do al-aqsa justice.
One day Palestine will be free !! Inn Sha Allah (God willing) – so none of us will have a “guilt trip” when we do get the invite from Allah to visit. We personally feel honoured and blessed. Allah looks at the intention and whats in the heart – we are going because we love our Deen, our Prophet and most of all Allah !!!
