The Messenger of Allaah sallAllaahu 3Alayhi wa sallam said: "Whoever directs someone to a good, then he will have the reward equal to the doer of the action". [Saheeh Muslim]


bismillah_f

Allaah says

وَأَذِّن فِي النَّاسِ بِالْحَجِّ يَأْتُوكَ رِجَالًا وَعَلَىٰ كُلِّ ضَامِرٍ يَأْتِينَ مِن كُلِّ فَجٍّ عَمِيقٍ

(interpretation of the meaning): 

“And proclaim to mankind the Hajj (pilgrimage). They will come to you on foot and on every lean camel, they will come from every deep and distant (wide) mountain highway (to perform Hajj)”

[soorah Al-Hajj, verse:27] 

A 75-year-old Yemeni walks over 2 months to reach Minaa for Hajj.

 Mohammed 3Ali Al-Mirfa3 told Al-Madina newspaper on Thursday that he started his journey from his home  town in Yemen on the third day of Eid Al-Fitr (July 3).

 He described his foot journey to be long and exhausting but he said: “I was determined to walk it  regardless of any difficulties.”

 Al-Mirfa3 said he bade farewell to his 12 children, wife and relatives and began his journey of a lifetime. He said  he is destitute and does not have anything to lose.

“I was only assisted in my journey by my strong will and determination which my long years have not been able to break,” he said.

When the newspaper met him, he was drinking a cup of tea provided to him by one of the cleaners. He was eating a loaf of bread with the tea.

“This is my breakfast. I am happy to have made it to the sacred Sites,” he said.

Al-Mirfa3 did not say if he had a Hajj campaign to accommodate him in Minaa, 3Arafat and Makkah.

He did not also say how he will go back home.

Comments on: "75-Year-Old Yemeni Man walked Over 2 months For Hajj" (2)

  1. This is a new site I have come in contact. This is too early for me to make a comment . I will comment after observation of some time.

  2. May Allah SWT be pleased with His servant(s), who have shown such immense love and determination. May He SWT also bless their families. This man is 75, he walked to hajj where as we dont even think of going to hajj. Stories like these are a wake up call, we have no excuses. May Allah SWT make us of those who are obedient, truthful, and pure hearted insha’Allah. Ameen.
