|Umrah guidebook, lent to me by my colleague who went there recently.|
Normally when I’m about to go for a trip, I don’t announce it here until I put up OOB notice on the departure day. But this time, I’m telling you in advance. Well, maybe not too far in advance since I’m leaving in a few days, but still earlier than I normally do.
Reason being I wish to share this blessing of umrah with all of you.
To my wonderful readers, if you wish for me to make doa for you during my umrah, I’m more than happy to assist.
However, I hope you can make it easy for me by doing this:
1) Write your doa as if I’m the one reading it. For example, if your name is Siti, please write "Ya Allah, my friend Siti wishes for her sins to be forgiven, for her life to be blessed and for her to get a husband who suits her herein and thereafter", something like that.
2) Kindly keep you doa simple and sweet, so that I can understand your wishes and read your doa from the bottom of my heart.
3) Your may write in English, Malay or Spanish as those are the languages I understand. Arabic is okay too, but please know that though I can read it, I can’t understand it much. So if you write in Arabic, I hope you don’t mind that I may not be able to really feel your wishes when I read them.
4) Please send your doa by this Saturday 16th June 2012 to my e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
I will try my very best to read your doa, hopefully in front of Kaabah, inshaAllah. Likewise, I hope for your doa from home for me to be able to do that.
I may not read my e-mail after Saturday 16th June 2012 as I will be busy preparing for the trip. Therefore, do send to me your doa soonest so that I won’t miss it out. I will reply to your e-mail once I receive it, so if you don’t get my reply, please send it again.
On this note, I humbly ask for your kindness to pray for my family and I to have a smooth journey throughout this trip, for our ibadah to be accepted, for our doa to be granted and for our umrah to be maqbulah.
May Allah bless us all.
