"One of the hardest lessons in life is letting go. Whether it’s guilt, anger, love, loss or betrayal. Change is never easy. We fight to hold on and we fight to let go."
The oldest surviving photo from Hajj ever, year 1880.
There are a few things to notice here:
1- The cover of the Kaaba was simple, despite the Ottoman empire being rich.
2- The old arches still exist until today inside the main building.
3- Nearly every man is wearing a turban, indicating this was taken after the 10th day (when Ihram cloth is taken off), and how much men adhered to the Sunnah!
4- Last, the Ottoman hotels surrounding the Masjid (one pictured at the back) provided FREE rooms & food for each Hajji without a tent, the same spot where the expensive clock tower hotel stands today!

When someone asks us about what we would want our ideal spouse to be like, why do we state the physical characteristics first and then the personality and spiritual characteristics last?
Men: “She needs to be shorter than me, fit, blue eyes, facial structure that resembles Kim Kardashian… oh she needs to be nice and caring..”
Women: “Tall, well-built, beard, tan, looks like Omar Borkan…He also needs to be a gentleman, well-mannered..”
We live in a shallow society.
