This video is about my journey to Mecca for my first omra.
Due to blockade on Qatar, Saudi Embassy is closed in Qatar, so Tour operators in Qatar cannot apply for Umrah Visa.
I took my visa from Canada and traveled via Kuwait to Jeddah and after to Mecca.
Macca is a city in the Hejazi region of the Arabian Peninsula, and the plain of Tihamah in Saudi Arabia, and is also the capital and administrative headquarters of the Makkah Region.The city is located 70 km (43 mi) inland from Jeddah in a narrow valley at a height of 277 m (909 ft) above sea level, and 340 kilometres (210 mi) south of Medina. Its resident population in 2012 was roughly 2 million, although visitors more than triple this number every year during the Ḥajj period held in the twelfth Muslim lunar month of Dhūl-Ḥijjah.
Who is Ishaq Mustaqim?
Ishaq Mustaqim is an ex criminal who converted to Islam in 2010. His mother is Swiss and his father is Haitian. He grew up in Canada where, at a very young age, got a big interest in the criminal lifestyle. He used all of his knowledge and skills which led him to live like a millionaire. But life isn’t great when you live like an outlaw. He found himself guilty of many crimes and was taken to prison. In the darkest place of earth, he met the greatest person who led him to Islam. Ishaq Mustaqim was then born, and his life totally changed, for the better. He is now involved in the Dawah community of his country and helped many young Muslims and non-Muslims to avoid the temptations of the unlawful and excessive life.
“In the past I was poor … all I had was money.” Ishaq Mustaqim
