“As I embark on the most significant journey of my life, the pilgrimage to Hajj, I wanted to share few words with you. This journey is not just a physical one, but a deeply spiritual experience that I’ve been preparing for, both in heart and mind. It’s a time for reflection, repentance, and renewal of faith.

Your support and prayers mean the world to me. I carry your love and good wishes with me as I seek forgiveness, peace, and a closer connection to Allah. I also humbly ask for forgiveness from anyone I have hurt, intentionally or unintentionally. It is my sincere hope that we can move forward with hearts unburdened. 

I hope to return with a heart more compassionate and a spirit more humble, ready to serve and love more deeply. Please keep me in your prayers during this sacred time, and I will keep you in mine. May we all be blessed with peace, happiness, and fulfillment.”
