Qurban Trip 10 - 18 September 2016
I brought my mum to Zhaotong, Yunnan to join the 9 Days Qurban Tour, 10 – 18 September 2016 organised by Ms Mariah Mah.
Every stop from the Qurban to other sightseeing places was an enriching experience for both of us.
Following are the places we visited:
Islamic garden and museum to see 99 title of Allah attribute in oil painting.
Prayed at an ancient 300 years old Sufi mosque built without using a single nail. Some said Angels built this mosque.
Visited Mao Hua Jie Madrasah for Eid prayer and followed by the 1st Qurban ritual and moved on to other areas for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Qurban locations in Guizhou province.
Al Fatah Preschool and Masjid.
Madrasah and Mosque in Kaiyuan city which a Singaporean helped to complete. Mingle with Da Zhuang’s muslim community and visited an ancient styled mosque of 200 years old.
Prayed at the Grand Mosque of Shadian for Friday prayer at Shadian City.
Charming Jiuxiang ( magnificent underground karst caves with waterfalls, limestones and cable car ride)
Our tour group of 28 pax hailed from Singapore, Malaysia, Palembang and UK. Masha Allah! the group contributed 4 cows and 48 sheeps. Alhamdullilah!
Ms Mah instructed her staff to pay special attention and care extended to my mum and another elderly (Melor’s mother) making sure that both elderly ride in a comfortable car instead of the mini van when we visited Al fatah preschool as the road condition (gravel stone) was rough.
My mum and I would like to say a big thank you and Jazakallah for all your help and generosity during our trip. It’s been an amazing journey!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
