Back from Hajj
Alhamdulillah...we arrived back but sad to have left Haram and back to life! Mariam is doing great after some rest and back to her MPH classes.
We are so happy to hear from you. We hope that you have finally got some time in Mecca and Haram to yourself and please have a safe trip back home. Please do let us know when you are back as we would love to catch up with you and thank you again for the wonderful time we had with our first Hajj esp due to your presence.
 I am thankful that you have sent me the email address for brother Moustafa Ahmed. We just wanted to share with him how you and your team made our Hajj a memorable and wonderful event esp in our condition.
 Dear brother Moustafa....Sister Rahima may have mentioned to you, but we are expecting a baby in Jan 2012 Mashallah and we decided to perform Hajj this year before we had the baby. She is 8 months pregnant at present and I am so thankful to God Almighty that He introduced me to sister Rahima who made every possible effort to make our Hajj as comfortable as possible from planning till we came back home, Alhamdullilah. She worked with us beyond being a sales person and custom tailored our package and trip so that Mariam ( my wife) stays comfortable at every step. I was amazed at sister Rahima's enthusiasm and patience's for every minute detail related to every Haji and remebering and caring for everyone's needs. In our case her every day Salam to us and outlining the day for us and giving us guidance was a blessing in disguise. At every step we were worry free that sister Rahima and her team were available on split second with a smile on their face. I have seen them not sleeping, eating or even performing their own rituals on time just to make sure that all the other Haji's were comfortable and perform their Hajj at the best of their abilities. I will esp mention Sister Sahiba and brother Waleed (who were directly involved with us) and sister Samina along with sister Rahima's daughter and praise them for their wonderful assistance in our Hajj. Nothing seemed difficult with their presence. May Allah give them the reward for their wonderful and caring nature to help so many Hajis perform their Hajj. For us, we have made more of a family out of sister Rahima, Sahiba and brother Waleed and would love to travek with them to Mecca again for Hajj or Umrah.
 We came back but are sad to leave Mecca and Haram and have wonderful memories and even more of a desire to go back to Mecca to have spiritual peace and comfort. We are thankful to Allah for giving us guidance to perform Hajj and hope to keep this feeling alive to repeatedly visit Haram and Masjid-e-Nabwi.
Sister Rahima..much appreciated..we will keep in touch..Good luck with your baby boy's efforts to be a doctor....Let me know if i could be of any help...Say our best to your family at work and home!
 Jazak-Allah.... Mariam and Siraj
