Sa’eed was sitting at the waiting area at the Jeddah airport after having just completed the rites of Hajj. The man next to him said: "I work as a contractor and Allah Ta’ala has blessed me with performing my tenth Hajj."
Sa’eed told him: " Hajj mabroor, may Allah accept and forgive your sins."
The man smiled and said: "Ameen."
Then he asked : " Have you performed Hajj before this time?"
Sa’eed was hesitating to tell him, and then he said: "By Allah, it’s a long story and I don’t want to hurt your head with my talk."
The man laughed and said: "Please tell me, as you see we have nothing to do, we’re just waiting."
Sa’eed smiled and said: "Yes, waiting is the start of my story. I’ve been waiting for so many years so that I could go for Hajj.
After working for thirty years as a physiotherapist in a private hospital, I was able to save enough money to go for Hajj.
The same day I went to get my savings, I came across one of the mother’s who’s paralyzed son I treat. I could see her face was worried and anxious."
She said: "I leave him to Allah’s keeping, Brother Sa’eed this is our last visit to this hospital".

"A man asked Ali Radiallahu Anhu: "Which month do you order me to fast after the month of Ramadan?' He said to him, 'I have not heard anyone ask this except for a man whom I heard asking the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) while I was sitting with him. He said: "O Messenger of Allah! (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) Which month do you order me to fast after the month of Ramadan?" He said: "If you will fast after the month of Ramadan, then fast Al-Muharram, for indeed it is Allah's month in which there is a day that Allah accepted the repentance of a people, and in which He accepts the repentance of other people."
