Pilgrim From The Uk Who Walked To Saudi For Hajj Cried When First Arrived

Pilgrim From The Uk

Perhaps none of the hundreds of thousands of Muslims performing
the Hajj in Makkah had a more difficult journey than Adam Mohammed.

The 53-year-old British electrical engineer walked about 4,000 miles to get to Saudi Arabia.

He traveled by foot across the Netherlands, Germany,
the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey,
Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan in the course of 11 months and 26 days.

At Makkah’s Masjid al-Haram, Adam told AFP,
“I cried when I first arrived.

“It’s an incredible feeling that leaves me speechless.
I experience great peace and a strong spiritual connection to Allah.

After learning of his exploits,
the Saudi government granted him and his
family visas to perform the Hajj.

“When the Saudi government learned that I was walking from the UK to Makkah,
it granted my family and me Hajj permits.
My family and I walked to Makkah together after they arrived in Madinah from the UK.
I am appreciative of them (the Saudi government),” Adam said.

The Extensive Trip

Adam claimed that although the journey was challenging,
he felt compelled to make it for Allah.

“I would experience mental fatigue and be unable to eat or drink.
But then I would feel a voice inside me ask, “What are you afraid of?
You can succeed because Allah is on your side.
Why can’t I devote 10 or 11 months to Allah after living for 52 or 53 years for myself?

The Iraqi-Kurd, who has spent about 25 years living in the UK,
decided to travel to the holy land after having a dream in August of last year.

In that month, he set out from his Wolverhampton home,
traveling an average of 12 miles per day on his self-built,
three-wheeled mobile vehicle.

On June 26, Adam arrived at the Ayesha Mosque in Makkah,
where he was welcomed and feted by a sizable crowd.

Adam has posted updates about his progress on social media throughout the journey.
His TikTok account has over 2.8 million likes and is very active.

This week, people from all over the world have been coming to
Makkah to prepare for the largest Hajj pilgrimage since the coronavirus pandemic.

The government has finished making plans for Mina,
which is also known as the “city of tents.”Pilgrim From Uk 

The first group of pilgrims has left Makkah and is already in Mina,
even though Hajj doesn’t start until Thursday.
