We know that we are in tightening grip of Covid-19 from 2020. This disease is still ongoing across the globe. More and more countries are trying to slow down the speed of the disease. Several states have announced lockdowns and cancellations of social gatherings.
Another saddening Corona impact that has deeply shaken the Global God fearers is the continuous closure of worshipping spots like Mosques, temples and churches. The most unusual phenomenon is seen in Muslim Middle East which took the drastic step to ban the grandest Muslim gathering sites of Arabian twin cities of Makkah and Madinah.
The whole Muslim community is still dubious whether their pious Muslim fellas would be able to perform their most significant Hajj ritual or not. The Hajj and Umrah guides are still unsure. The Saudi Ministry is still concerned about the healthcare so it is very obvious that the Muslim itinerary guides may be hesitant of making Hajj arrangements with their Economy Hajj Packages.
The people are in chronic Corona stress. They have been stranded within their homes. The human movement has drastically decreased. The growing sense of loneliness and self-Quarantine has created a havoc on people’ mental health.
Don’t be Sad on Hajj Cancelation
But I request all my Hajj intender brothers and sisters that everything happens for our own good. The sense of piety and Allah’s love is the main requisite of our Deen. Always remember that Kaaba is our Qibla means an inevitable direction of our prayers. The mere spiritual visitations of Holy sites is not the way to Allah ( SWT)’s will.
These blessed ways are even easier than the arduous Muslim journeys. Among these are offering five time prayers, doing Dhikr, recite Holy Quran and charity to deserving ones.
