I am a current lebanese university student in Australia thinking of moving to Mecca. Either continuing my studies there or just after finishing my degree in Australia. I was wondering what are the prospects for me to set myself up and find work or a place to reside? And how i would fit in. I would be bringing my mother as well inshaAllah and study nursing/midwifery.
Help would be appreciated dearly.
How many days to receive mecca visa
how much a price for pure honey at mecca?
Is there any storage or locker facility at jeddah airport where I can leave my luggage and go to Makkah with a light shoulder bag to perform Umrah? Thanks.
is there an aeroplane flying between meecca and medina,and why dont pilgrims take that flight unlike busses and taxis,what could be the actual distance between necca and medina.
I was adopted in Australia by a turkish Muslim family. I was 11 years old and they did not change my faith due to legal requirements, although I obviously followed their cultural and religious traditions. They have all travelled to Mecca, I would like to travel there to honor their kindness towards me and their customs and because of my own spiritual beliefs. Is there a way of being part of this incredibly important spiritual journey without being Muslim? Is there a mosque outside of Mecca that would allow respectful western women? I post this with the upmost of respect, so please forgive my ignorance.
Assalam alaikum, First of all, thank you for taking the time and reading my post. May Allah reward you. I have a weired desire to walk from Jedda to mecca in the state of Ihram for the sake of Allah during this year's hajj in shaa Allah. I am aware that I don't have to do this, the distance is quite far,and that it's a challenge to walk that distance anywhere let along in Saudia Arabia and in the state of Ihram. What I would love to know, jazakum Allah kheir, is: Do the Saudi authorities tolarate hajjis to walk to Mecca al mukarram? or if you've known or heard of people who walked to Mecca al Mukarram during Hajj. I would love to add that this is not about money or anything else but it's about a dream I've had for a while:) Again Thanks a lot for reading this post and for your answers Jazakum Allah kheir
