A few years ago, I was on my pilgrimage. During this sacred experience, I had an epiphany. One day as I was looking at the pictures hanging on the walls at the House of Abbud, I felt like I was visiting a museum and I did not like that feeling at all. Pilgrimage is to be a sacred experience, not a visit to a museum. Then moments later, as I passed the room where Some Answered Questions had been revealed, I suddenly felt a different feeling. I felt as If I could visualize the conversations, I could imagine where Younis Khan had sat and my experience became sacred. I realized that knowing more about what events have transpired, what stories took place, what Writings had been revealed at the different Holy Places, was the key for me to have a truly sacred experience and connect personally with the history of my Faith. Therefore, I began making compilations on different Holy Places.

I have already posted some of them, more is to come. They are linked below. Perhaps reading about these compilations will assist you in making your pilgrimage more special.
