Umrah Travelogue - Part 4

The final part of my journey was spend at Mecca. At that time, the construction of the Holy Mosque is still ongoing.

Due to the massive construction, the environment is dusty and the places where you can perform the prayers are limited. There are hundreds of massive cranes that are scattered around the mosque. Bear in mind that I went to perform umrah before the accident of crane collapses happens. Read here.

To describe the feeling that I felt upon seeing the Kaaba is beyond words. I am lucky and honoured to be selected to come to this Holy place. It is my hope that all of my prayers will be answered and that all of Muslims in the entire world would be able to live in peace again.

To end my post, here are few pictures of the mosque including the on-going construction at that time.
