Mubarak to all brothers and sisters who are going for Hajj this year! May it be that our own eyes may once again be enlightened with the sight of the Ka’bah Baytullah, and indeed the coolness and Light of the very air of Madinah tul Munawwarah!

O abode of the Best of all Messengers;
The one by whom people are guided, and who was chosen to receive the Verses,
For you (o Madinah) I have intense, ardent love,
And a yearning which kindles the embers of my heart.

– [Qadi Iyaad’s al-Shifa, Vol. 2] –
