Just a few more rituals for this year’s hajis to perform and then they will have completed their hajj -in shaa Allah.

I was thinking about them a lot today. Picturing them in Arafat, hands raised in earnest. Someone would have stood where I was blessed to have stood several years ago. I wonder what they requested in their duas?

I remember some of my duas so clearly, as if I still ask for them. But I don’t need to ask for those things any longer because Allah granted them – Allahu Akbar!

He is always listening & can grant our wishes no matter what the odds may be.

May Allah [swt] fulfil the duas of every pilgrim who stood in Arafat today. And may He also grant the wishes of the believers who were not performing hajj but made dua anyway. Ameen
