Looking Ahead

Today we registered places for the Haj with MUIS. But our pilgrimage won't take place any time soon, assuming it takes place at all. The waiting list from Singapore stretches, we believe, to 2016. It seems strange to be thinking so far ahead but, given the quota system which is the only sensible way to arrange the Haj in these times, necessary.

A Muslim will automatically utter, or at least think, Insh'allah (God willing) regarding any event posited for the ever uncertain future. Our Insh'allah for this one comes with a very definite sense of yearning.
