Hubby and I did our Tawaf and Saie Hajj after solat Eid Adha. As we walked to Haram we could see and feel the festive atmosphere where we saw the locals donned their 'baju raya' just like we did back home.
As we entered Haram via King Fahd gate, there was this lady carrying a huge basket and together with her young lovely daughter distributed dates and a packet of fresh bun for us. Alhamdulillah. Our breakfast aka 'alas perut'.
There was a huge crowd doing Tawaf but Alhamdullillah when we did out Solat Sunat Tawaf, we managed to do it behind Maqam Ibrahim. But of course lah, a bit further down. Lots of space to solat and then to dua. Alhamdulillah.
We then drank zam zam water and proceeded to do our Saie Hajj and after completing Saie, we did Tahallul Awal. Alhamdulillah.
I returned to the hotel whilst hubby waited for solat Jumaat at Haram.
After solat Asar, we went to Hotel Rotana to join the other KAWAN pilgrims for our journey to Mina.
It took us about an hour to reach Mina. But the coach could not drive us straight to camp 112. So we had to walk about a kilometre to Camp 112.
