10 days in the Blessed Yemen

In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Kind. All Praise is due to Allah [subhanahu wata3la] and may the peace of blessings of Allah [subhanahu wa ta3la] be upon his Messenger [salAllahu alayhi wa salam]

Whats this blog about, Im not even sure lol. But something like about Yemen [well duh]. Alhamdulilah I was blessed with the opportunity to go there aswell as Egypt during my gap year. Anyways, the reason for this is to give an insight on the blessed lands of al Yemen. Theres not actually much on the internet about this country, oddly. Yemen is one of the few countries mentioned and praised specifically by the messenger of Allah [salAllahu alayhi wa salam]. Yemen is absolutely beautiful, and I’m gonna go on about it but before you think this is nationalism or bias, thought its important to point out that I’m not even arab.

So this is more like kinda my experience in the 10 days or so I spent there. But I hope this will be of benefit somehow. If I was to sum up Yemen and my experience of it in one would be.. “Sunnah”. Yemen is the epitomy [I don't know what that means] of the Sunnah of the messenger of Allah [salaAllahu alayhi wa salam]. The country actually made me think of Surah Noor. Its Surah Noor summed up. Surah Noor is all about the Muslim society and how it should be. Yemen reminded me of just a slight teeny insight of how life must have been back at the time of the sahaba [radiAllahu anhum ajma3een]

Yemen is the land where many of the anbiya originate from. Nuh, Salih, Hud [alayhum salam] etc. and is also the place where Aad and Thamud are from, they’ve still got the areas marked and many of the sahaba aswell as the anbiya are buried there.

Allah [SWT] says in Surah Ghaafir, verse 82: Have they not travelled through the earth and seen what was the end of those before them? They were more numerous than them and mightier in strength, and in the traces (they have left behind them) in the land, yet all that they used to earn availed them not.

Its not like a personal diary and Im not even 100% sure where Im going with this so lets see and tawakal a3laAllah. Any good that comes from this is from Allah, any mistakes are from myself and the whisperings of shaytaan.

The remembrance of Allah

    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmaullah.

    JazakAllahu khair for that I thought it was really good. Could you kindly give us all a breakdown of what you did in the 10 days that you spent in Yemen. i.e. from the minutests detail like the food you ate there, what the housing is like, transportation etc, as well as the obvious things like what you learnt etc.

    I as wel as others would really benefit from this insha’Allah, as many dream of travelling abroad…some more on a delusional level and others on a more serious note. I know its probably going to be quite time consuming for you, but if you could do that I would be superb.

    JazakAllahu khair yet again, and may Allah give you the tawfique to take from the yemeni treasures once more, ameen.

    Bismillahi Ar Rahmaan Ar Raheem.

    al salamu alaikum,

    Al hamdulillah you have a chance to visit Yemen. The place I have always want to make hijrah to. Insha Allah i m asking Allaah Ta’aalaa on this matter all the time. walaahawlaawalaaquwata illaabillaah.
    Jazak Allaahu khair for posting ahadith about Yemen indeed they help firming my heart everytime i read it.

    You said,

    “Theres not actually much on the internet about this country, oddly. Yemen is one of the few countries mentioned and praised specifically by the messenger of Allah [salAllahu alayhi wa salam].”

    Certainly, the so called kufar internet terrain shall never put great pictures or good news or any interesting things about Yemen. Instead, if you search in google for example you will never find anything interesting at all only some news bout terrorists and bla bla bla…
    I myself have met several yemenis sisters mashaAllaah they were so nice and kind and friendly. I have discuss many issues with them Wallaahi they are so good.
    Even some of them are not really practising but they never have sign of arrogants.
    May Allaah aslih us all, ameen ya RABB.
