One has seen nothing in life if...
One never tires of gazing at the sight of the House of Allah, theKaa'ba. The site upon which the mercy and blessings of Allah areconstantly descending. There is truly nothing comparable to the Houseof Allah on this Earth. People wish time would stand still so they could keep gazing at the Kaa'ba; their thirst is never quenched, ratherit increases. Once, while on a visit to Washington, people told me that a woman hadaccepted Islam and had some questions for me. They told me that manynon-practicing Muslim women had started practicing again due to her. Atprayer time she would dress in her best clothes as if readying herselffor someone special, and would become oblivious to everything aroundher as soon she started praying. After a brief question and answer session, I asked her what promptedher to accept Islam. She sighed and started explaining; "I was a Jewand my husband was a Christian who was posted in Saudi Arabia for sometechnical work. Everyday I used to see Muslim men and women dressed inwhite on their way somewhere. I asked my husband where they were goingand he told me that they go to perform pilgrimage at the Muslim shrineof Kaa'ba. I expressed a desire to go but he told me that non-Muslimswere not allowed. However, I was determined and so we both bought whiteclothes and set out. Fortunately no one stopped us and we reachedMakkah, from where we found directions to the Kaa'ba. Upon seeing theKaa'ba our eyes froze and time seemed to stand still. When we turned tolook at each other after some time, we were both crying. With our eyeswe told each other that this was the Truth and we should accept Islam.No one ever told me about Islam, but there were so many blessingsdescending on that House that they changed my life forever." The blessings of Tawhid descend in Makkah, and the blessings ofProphet hood descend in Madinah. One has seen nothing in life if he hasnot seen these two holy sites. May Allah give all Muslims theopportunity to visit to His House. Source:Excerpt from a speech of Shaikh Zulfiqar -
