“Take provision, and the best provision is piety” (Qur'an, 2:197). In other words, fatten up your souls with spiritual calories for this sacred journey back to your Lord.

The poet W.S. Merwin, upon reflecting on the miraculous migration of the birds, wrote that they are “tracing a memory they did not have until they set out to remember it.” God tells us in the Qur’an, “And if you forget, remember.” The journey of Hajj is remembering what we have forgotten. Allahu akbar!
