Visiting Makkah(Mecca)

As a muslim I got to visit Makkah many times,Atleast once a year in our holy month Ramadan to perform(Umrah),it is some sort of religious practice to show our worship to Allah(God).Though it can be preformed all year round,,but it`s believed that it`s greatly rewarded when preformed in the nobel month of Ramadan.

I am blessed to be living only 80 kilo meters away from Makkah (more or less)....so the journey is not so tiring.

I took this picture with my mobile cam,it was Ramadan of 2006 and it was a weekend,the Mosque was so crowded even more than the time I went there for Hajj(Hajj is a greater practice),the picture might be blurr,but this is only because I was pushed by my kids by mistake

Al Masjid Al Haram

Here is another piture of Makka`s grand mosque...same location as the picture above...it`s on the out skirt of the mosque,and due to the huge crowd inside the mosque,,people tend to pray outside,with the Imam through listening to the speakers.

If you go the upper level of al Mas`aa you can see this site from the windows on the right hand side.
