Virtual visit to Masjidil Haram...everyday!

Assalamualaikum warahmatuLlahi wabarakatuh everyone!

I pray all of you have a blessed Ramadhan so far.

Today I'd like to share something interesting with all of you.

A friend of mine introduced a blog of a Malaysian living in Makkah. He is working at Al-Jewar Royal Orchid hotel, located exactly in front of Masjidil Haram. Masya-Allah, his blog contains lots and lots of beautiful pictures of Al-Haram for everyone to view. He updates his blog regularly, at least twice a day, so readers would know what is happening at Al-Haram from time to time.

If you have been to Makkah either for umrah or hajj, you may virtually come back to this holy land to bring back all the good memories you encountered when you were there. If you have never been to Makkah yet, this is the best opportunity to get to know what's going on over there recently. May you set a goal to be there one day, Insya-Allah.

The blog owner, Manzlie, or better known as CL, loves to take pictures of everything, from the masjid itself, to the various kinds of people visiting this place, animals like pigeons and cats, restaurants and other business centres, construction and development surrounding Al-Haram, the various beautiful pendants in the masjid, its interior design, zam-zam water, cleaners, food, night life, sahoor, taraweeh....etc.

Kaabah at 3.00 a.m. crowded with worshippers!

Enough from me! Go visit and experience it yourself. I guarantee you'll like it. And oh! by the way, the blog is in Malay language. You may need the 'Translate' button to help you. Not much, but at least you can understand what's told behind the story.

Enjoy the view! I do...  Here's the blog.


  1. Assalamualaikum sis!

    Thank you so much for sharing this! From time to time I'll go through my personal photos just to recharge that pleasant feeling one gets when one looks at the Ka'abah!

    Owh, and in case you're unaware, I'd like to share . The sister resides in Medina, but she also blogs about Mecca. :)

  2. Waalaikum salam, my dear sis Hajar!

    I agree with you that there's this unexplained feeling inside when looking at Ka'abah. Can never forget it!

    Thanks for sharing the blog with me and the rest of us here. I'll surely visit it soon.

  3. Assalamu Alaikum sisters, Hajar and Ati!

    Thank you both for recommending two awesome blogs to us. I'm going to add them to my Reader now :)

  4. Waalaikum salam, sis Nadia..

    Alhamdulillah... I feel so happy today..!

  5. Assalamu Alaikum,
    Oh! that tranquil feeling inside us when looking at
    Kaabah is beyond comprehension, bless to those who gotten it.
    However I just found this virtual and so realistic panorama of Al Haram Al Sharif. It is near impossible for us to ziarah this 3rd most holy site of Islam.Drop by on my blogs and do drop a line or two.

  6. Waalaikum salam, brother..

    Thank you for your kind words. Insya-Allah I will visit you one day.

    Take care & wassalam.
