Bosnian Muslim goes for Hajj by walk

Hajj is a show of creation, a show of history, a show of unity, a show of Islamic idealogy, and a show of Ummah,” – Dr. Ali Shari’ati in his book ‘The Hajj’.

Every year, nearly three million people gather in Makkah to perform their once-in-life Islamic Fard, the Hajj, one of the five pillars of Islam. However, very few of them know the real purpose of Hajj.

On March 12, 2012 – American The World media outlet reported that a Bosnian Muslim, 47-year-old Senad Hadzic has already started his journey, by walking, to Sacred city of Makkah (Saudi Arabia) to perform Hajj which is due in October this year.

Senad started his journey from his hometown in northern Bosnia back in December 2011 and hopes to cover a distance of 3,600 miles by Hajj time. He travels 12 to 20 miles per day.

To be honest, before i started on this trip, everybody was frightened for me, asking how will I, as a Muslim, be able to travel though Christian countries like Serbia and Bulgaria,” says Hadzic.

“In Serbia, people came out on the street and gave me a hat, or some socks,” Hadzic says. “In one case, a professor in Serbia invited me to stay in his house. This Serbian professor, who was a Christian, told me that I was the first Muslim who had stepped in his house in his life. It was a great honor for me.”

In Turkey, “an old Turkish wise man appeared and when he saw that I came from Bosnia to Istanbul on two feet, he offered me the money to sit on an airplane and go directly to Mecca for the Haj,” Hadzic says. “But I rejected this.”

“By this act, I am proving that everything I do is for the love of Allah,” Hadzic says. “For all the riches in the world, I would never stop what I am doing.”

    Subhanallah i hope allah accepts my bosnia brothers hajj and grant him paradise. Inshallah he can be a inspiration for other bosnian muslims to reconnect with their faith. I Know haji’s who went to hajj without understanding the real purpose why. Taking the hotels and mobile phones for granted and not rying to connect to the creator. Inshallah brother senad makes it to makkah ameen.

    we were so proud of him when he started and supported him in every way, after he received more than ten thousand of dollars he is rude to people who donated, calling them names and still begging on his facebook site for more money.
