grey pine trees


I miss the summer, and I am feeling  little bit like the story from old nan in Game of Thrones…

Oh, my sweet summer child, what do you know about fear? Fear is for the winter, when the snows fall a hundred feet deep. Fear is for the long night, when the sun hides for years, and children are born and live and die all in darkness. That is the time for fear, my little lord, when the White Walkers move through the woods… Thousands of years ago, there came a night that lasted a generation. Kings froze to death in their castles, same as the shepherds in their huts, and women smothered their babies rather than see them starve, and wept, and felt their tears freeze on their cheeks. So is this the sort of story that you like?

Ok the snow is not hundred feet deep, 🙂 but I feel like I haven’t seen the sun in years… The above picture from the pines describe the feeling more than words…

So its finally there, first day of the hajj starts! 8th of Dhul Hijja is the first official day of hajj. The gathered pilgrims travel from Mecca to Medina, its a small village, tent city east of the city. The pilgrims start stay there praying, reading Quran and resting for the coming great efforts they are going to make, inchaAllah

Here a really beautiful quotation from a book:

“The Hajj is not a journey of going; it is a journey of returning. The pilgrim is not going to Makkah. He is returning to his source, Allah The Source of Everything.”

(Hajj of the heart by Dr Y Mansoor Marican)
