As thousands of Muslims from all over the world gathered in Saudi Arabia’s second largest city, Madinatul Almunawwara as part of their preparation for Hajj rituals in Makka, an Egyptian Lawyer, Muhammed Darwish described Hajj pilgrimage as a best journey for every Muslim that can afford to embark upon it in his or her life time.
According to him, ever since he visited Madinah he felt a sense of connectivity with other Muslims from all over the world, particularly those fortunate to perform this year’s hajj.The Young lawyer, who disclosed this in a chat with Peoples Daily inside the Prophet’s Mosque in Madinah, said he didn’t find it easy when coming, but that the journey was worth it.
“My brother, Hajj is the best journey for all Muslims who can afford it, this is my first hajj but since I came here, I can tell you I feel more connected with other Muslims from all over the world. I was in Madinah to visit the Prophet’s Mosque and other places recommended for visit before going to Makka.
” I am an Egyptian and a member of Muslim Brotherhood, but because of the situation in my country I decided to move to Poland and have been there for almost a year and half now. But I can tell you that the situation in my native country made me to come for the Hajj this year, so as to have spiritual comfort,” he said.
Lawyer Muhammad further urged Muslim nations, especially those facing security challenges and civil wars to forget their differences and unite, saying the enemy can only penetrate them if they are not united.
He also frowned at the recent incidence of arms deal involving Nigerians, who were arrested in South Africa as he prayed to Allah to continue protecting Muslim countries from evil doers, saying most of the crisis happening in Muslim countries, including his home town of Egypt and Nigeria are the hand work of anti-Islam countries.
