So I thought I would share my top things to do while visiting Mecca/ Makkah. Enjoy!
1. Pray: For Muslims, there is no other place that spiritually enlightens then the holy city of Mecca. Performing Umrah/Hajj if you are so fortunate, is life changing at the least. Even a day visit and performing sunnah and daily prayers in the Harem can not get any better. I love sitting along the stairs across from the Harem and literally just staring…taking its (Kabbah) beauty in. It’s hard to put in words the immense feeling and perspective you feel when doing it. For me nothing gets better than this.
be sure to include a visit to the “Mountain of Light”. It has been said that
Prophet Mohamed’s’ (PBUH) first revelation was received within this mountain “Hira Cave”. It’s an added bonus to enrich your Islamic knowledge, and the view is quite breathtaking.
