There is a saying in urdu "nau sau choohay khaa karr billi gayee haj pe"
This translates as "Having eaten 900 mice , the cat is going for haj"
This is generally for people who have done the whole shebang, and in their old age set out to do Hajj.
When they are too old to do anything more, they set out to seek redemption for their miserable souls.
The point of this is not some long winded lecture on morality etc etc
But to let you know that tomorrow afternoon, we are all driving down to dear old KSA for UMRAH.
Inshallah I shall pray for all of you though I have to admit asking God to Bless names like the names you all have assumed on this blog are a bit corny!
But what I will say is if anyone of you has any "xtra"special duaa to be asked and prayed for on the Holy soil and if I may be your path (waseela), then please do not hesitate to let me know.
Take extra special care of yourselves and others, and BLESS YOU ALL.
ps When I mentioned the 900 mice I did not mean I was that CAT!!
