Treated like royalty

I am so happy to be here, Alhamdulillah. I feel like Allah has chosen and invited me out of thousands that wanted to come. We are being treated like royalty. We are being taken on tours that dignitaries are taken on. It started out bumpy with flight issues but Subhanallah, it is by the wisdom of Allah because such trials bring us closer to Him. Anything worth experiencing is indeed worth being trialed for. The visit to the Rawdah was a real treat and the Saudis areproving to be wonderful hosts. I pray that those reading this blog can also experience this wonderful trip. Ameen.

My name is Ahmed Khan, from Toronto, Canada. I know there are a couple from Toronto at the Rihla.

oh boy, is my heart filled with envy or what?

Anyways, I pray that Allah SWT gives everyone the opportunity to visit the Rawda and Masjid Haram. Indeed it has to be the experience of a lifetime.

If possible, please convey my greetings, salaams, and salutations to Sheikh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi. I have never met him, but he is my Sheikh's Sheikh.

Please also convey my greetings, salaams, and salutations to all the
other shuyukh, and most of all
to the Beloved of Allah SWT, our most dear Master and Intercessor,
Muhammada al-Mustafa SAW.

Keep the posts going.


Ahmed Khan
