another country. Where details of that country won't be found in glamorous
travel brochures but in the Holy Qura'an and the Hadiths. Where our plane
won't be Indian Air Lines, British Airways, Gulf Air or Emirates, but Air
Janazah. Where our luggage won't be the allowed 30 Kgs, but our deeds no

Where our dress won't be a Pierre Cardin suit or the like but the white
cotton shroud. Where our perfume won't be Channel, Paco Rabane, but the

leave to stay or else, but, The "LaIlaha Illallah" (insha Allah.) Where the
