♥̸̨͡ story: power of dua & belief 🍀بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم🍀
she prayed for 30 years to die in madina – اللَّهُ subhana wa ta'ala made it so.
my mentor’s mother had been praying to allah to live in madina since they were kids. she had a routine that after every prayer she would make dua to live in madina.
she wanted to die in madina
he further said she did it so regularly that when they grew up, this dua became the part of their life. they were so much used to it that it almost followed as one of the rituals of dua. when they got mature, they started questioning her about her prayer which was unrealistic.
she was living in america with all of her children, her children had no such plans to leave this country, how would she always make dua that she wants to die in madina? she would simply narrate some of the virtues of madina & then put an end to the conversation by saying, “allah can do anything, is it too big for allah?” though she was a just 4th standard pass, she had more knowledge about allah than all of them. after consistently making that prayer with a conviction for thirty years, one day, one of her sons decided to settle down in sudan with his wife & kids & was going to leave america.
everyone was surprised when his mother also showed her willingness to go with him. she was living here in america for years & it would be difficult for someone to resettle in a new condition in this old age.
she laughed at it & said that she is not staying in sudan, she is going to madina. true enough once they got to sudan she kept asking her son to take them for an umrah. when they went for umrah there was still a final obstacle.
their umrah visas got expired
at jeddah airport, they were surprised & shocked when they were told by an immigration officer that their visas were expired.
it seemed like their travel agent had sold them expired visas. the officer was angry & in a very harsh tone, he told them that because of the mother’s old age as she was in a wheelchair otherwise he would have put them back from very first flight.
they got entry to saudi arabia without a visa. 📸 photo credit @wld.tabh
