I cried when I saw this. Mashallah thank you so much sister, this is beautiful. I just love the women in all-white. I was surprised actually to see so many in black. And mashallah for you hotel, wow! Love you and glad you had a wonderful time.

Ellen: inshallah you will :)

Lisa: it is really beautiful. I don't know why but most women here wear black, except for some traditional costumes. Very few are in white, although it is very beautiful. Love!

wow. Seeing it through ur lenses made it feel soo real and me so so small. Didnt realize how a simple picture can move one so much so as to tear a little.

I recently felt the want to perform e umrah. Seeing these rekindled that want. But it also makes me feel so undeserving of going to such a place. Booo you're making a guy cry.

Marzuki: if you feel that need you should definitely go, if you can! I felt that need very strongly and masha'Allah it was the best and most rewarding experience of my (short) life. I would live there if I could.

Looking at these pics again made me tear up too!
