Writing 101, Day Two: A Room with a View


To be honest, I have many beautiful experiences to tell you about cities in Indonesia especially Java. I spent 4 years to study in Islamic Boarding School in East Java. I had built many beautiful stories about that.

I often imagine those places and imagine my friendship in my college. But, a place that I most like to visit is Kaaba in Mekkah Al-Mukarromah. I have never visited it. I wish I could go there with my family soon. Why I choose it? I’m sure every Muslim missed to visit Kaaba. As we know, Kaaba is one of Amazing place in the world. If we read many sources, Kaaba is the central of the earth.
Every time, when I saw a prayer mat, or pics of Kaaba, I prayed to Allah, to make me easy to visit it.

Kaaba (baitullah) in Mekkah, Saudi.

One of the Five Pillars of Islam requires every Muslim who is able to do so to perform the hajj pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime.
Visiting Kaaba for performing the Hajj (pilgrimage) is my great dream. It’s still my dream! One day, yes one day my family and I’ll visit it. InshaAllah! (if Allah will)

I only heard, read and watched the history of kaaba from many references. The Kaaba or Kaaba is a cuboid building at the center of Islam’s most sacred Al-Masjidil Haram , in Mekkah, Saudi Arabia. Wherever they are in the world, Muslims are expected to face the Kaaba, when outside Mekkah, to face toward Mekkah – when performing salat (prayer). From any point in the world, the direction facing the Kaaba is called the qibla.
Al-Masjid al-Haram was built around the Kaaba.
I’ll enter Al- masjid al-haram and pray within. Reading Qur’an and will pray a lot. I really missed to complete the Five Pillars of Islam, I missed to answer Allah’s calling, “Labbaik Allahuma labbaik”


After performing hajj, my family and I will visit the history places, such as a grave of our Prophet Muhammad SAW, maqam Prophet Ibrahim AS and other places. Oh yes, I’ll visit my friends in Saudi. They are my Arabic online teachers.  🙂   Insha’Allah!
