umra – the miqat, the dew became a tiny stream

The pilot annouced that at 1845 the aircraft will be passing the designated point of miqat. This is the location where every pilgrim recite the intent to do the umrah.

Designated location? It is like telling every dew to congregate at a particular location and become a tiny stream. And the tiny stream flows and be joined by other tiny streams heading towards the river.

You are water.

You now belong to a community. You start smiling and saying hello to others dressed in the same garb.

You are no different with the others. In His eyes, it is just your taqwa that determines your nearness to Him

Lab bai kallah, hu lab baiq.
