Group of British Muslims cycled from London to Medina in time for Hajj

/

Calling themselves the Tour de Hajj group, a play off of the Tour de France annual bike race, a group of British Muslims cycled more than 6,500km from England to Saudi Arabia in time for the pilgrimage of Hajj.

Traveling for 60 days through 17 countries across Europe and the Middle East to finally end their destination in the holy city of Medina, the group also took to social media to help raise money for charity while they made the long trek across two continents.

Taher Hasan Akhtar, one of the group’s members, called this journey a “spiritual, beautiful journey” as they were given a warm hero’s welcome when they finally arrived in Medina. After paying respects and homage to the Prophet Mohammad in Medina, the group then set off to Mecca to complete their holy Hajj pilgrimage.

Hajj remains the most holy pilgrimage for Muslims, and inspiring stories like this of Muslims from around the world making sacrifices and devoting themselves fully to God only reinforces the beauty that comes from our love towards God. May all our prayers be blessed this Hajj, and may we continue to better ourselves as Muslims.
