Eid Mubarak !!!

Labbaik....Allaahumma Labbaik
by Asma bint Shameem

As I pack my belongings..... and get ready for this great Journey
I cry with gratitude.....once more You've blessed me
Tears flowing.....in ecstasy my heart flies
My soul sings....my whole being cries
Labbaik....Allaahumma Labbaik

But what are these words..... what do they really mean?
Do I appreciate them?...Do I just repeat what I've seen?
Do I really understand....
Do I even comprehend....
Labbaik....Allaahumma Labbaik  read more »
