    'Mina' Was Popularly Known As The 'Tent City' Or The 'Three Days Town' Because The Place Will Be Deserted After Hajj Season. This Is No Place For You To Indulge In Worldly Pleasure.There Is No Such Thing As Special Rooms With Attached Toilets And Ammenities.

    2nd DAY AT MINA

    Whenever I saw this photo, it made me *freeze* a second. This pilgrims came from Northern part of Pakistan and mix with fellow pilgrims from Afghanistan. A chance mix with them; found out, they sold their land and other properties just to fullfill the called of Hajj. Down here they never know about Hotel,Nice bed, Air cond and good food. They sleep where ever permitted by autorities, they eat whenever they are really hungry. They stay in a group (Jama'ah ). They seldom buying ready cook food. They cook near a road side. Learn the Principle : EAT FOR LIVING... NOT LIVE FOR EATING !!! That why they are very healthy some of them in the photo , achived 81 years old. No joke man ! Good to practice this principle...fight all internal desire.
