Huuu..huuuu.. Today was my last day in Kashmir.. So hard to say good bye to my new love, KASHMIR.. In m y 1 1 t h e n t r y i told that i have a plan on last day before leaving Kashmir. The plan was praying fajr in Jamia Mosque. It was cancelled on the first fajr for certain reason. And only ALLAH knows the best. Anyway, i insisted Mr Fahad to bring me to Jamia Mosque coz the hotel could not arrange any transport for me.
ALHAMDULILAH at about 4.30AM, Mr Fahad came to the hotel and picked me up. We went straight to the mosque. We needed to hurry coz it was almost fajr. Once we arrived at he main gate, the gate closed. He tried another gate, also closed. And tried again for the third gate, also closed. No people around at this hour. And for the last attempted he drove us to the fourth gate, also close. Dont u think this is weird?? Why no people walking to the mosque? Almost tears in my eyes.. YA ALLAHH, kau tak izinkan aku bersolah di sini kah YA ALLAH. Then i cakap kat Mr Fahad, "Cuba you tanya this man where should we go," Then he scrolled down the window and asked to that man in Urdu". "YA ALLAH, he replied"..Why??..why..??.I asked. "No prayer lah kat sini.. ".."Whattttt??????The man said, no jemaah for fajr during winter and spring.. Mr Fahad tried to calm me down.."we tried for Hazrabal Mosque, INSYALLAHH." I just hoped and prayed..
Punya lah laju Mr Fahad bawak kereta...Quite far. Almost about 15 minutes driving, we almost reached to the mosque. From far we could hear someone recited al quran..And we also saw many people walking to there. ALHAMDULLILAH... we made it.. I was so happy. Before this Mr Fahad didnt bring me to this mosque. He had his own reason why he didnt bring me here. But we have to lah gak this time, coz of this fajr prayer.
I made it. I felt so touched. Praying with the local where everyone looked so different. No telekung like us. And me also. I just wore jubah and used my shawl as my hijab. Cara solat depa pun bit different. No dua'a qunut. Then for the last rakaat, they just sat like antara dua sujud. After solah, i met Mr Fahad outside and asked about this. He said, we only recite dua'a qunut during Ramadan. And duduk antara dua sujud tu memang different between man and woman.. Anyway, i just followed with what we always do... New things anyway..
Subuh tau masa ni. Right after solah terus turun kat sini. Hasil tangkapan Mr Fahad. Yang ni nampak lah masjid tu. Ada minor renovation.
Yang ni pulak baru lah nampak i..
Nampak tak tasik tu. This mosque facing to the Dal Lake too..Lepas tu Mr Fahad brought me to the hill. Kira macam nak tengok Srinagar city lah. Once we reached up there, alaaaa..kabus je coz it was raining yesterday. So tak nampak apa - apa pun. Anyway berada di atas tu memang best. What a shame i forgot to take any picture there.
Then, Mr Fahad sent me back to the hotel. I took a sleep for awhile. Then Mr Fahad came back at 9.00AM. My flight still lambat lagi and Mr Fahad asked me to go to his house and had my last breakfast at his house.
Masa nak keluar from the hotel i had a chance took a picture with Mr Sajid, the owner of the hotel. We had a very great conversation sepanjang i berada at his hotel. Almost every nite kitarang sembang.. Macam - macam hal. In fact dengan his father too. Baru lah depa ni tau kat mana Malaysia. Sedihnyaaa...Depa tau Singapore je..Apa cerita tourism kita ek??
Once arrived at Mr. Fahad's house i met the rest of the family again. Terus depa served breakfast for me. I had my breakfast with Mr Fahad. Banyak betul depa served kat i. Ada cornflakes plus dengan dried fruit, ada fresh fruit mixed with cornflakes, pakai fresh milk lagi. Ada pineapple juice gak. All these his Baba yang prepared for me.. YA ALLAHH..macam queen..Hee..heee.. Then ada gak bread depa tu lah. I took a bit je. Full dah i masa ni..It's about to go. Sedihhh nyaaaa...
Mr Fahad sent me to the airport. Sempat gak curi - curi tangkap gambar airport depa ni.. The security kat sini was REALLY TIGHT and STRICT. Before we arrived at this point, we had to queue here about 20 to 30 minutes. The police looked at my ticket here, then screened my luggage. I pun also di screen kat sini. Ini belum masuk airport lagi tau. Baru kat entance of the airport je baru.. Berlari - lari lah Mr Fahad. Hantar luggage and picked up them back. Masuk balik dalam kereta. I m sure i cant do alone. ALHAMDULILAH all this Mr Fahad did.. And the car also pun kena screen kat sini.
Walking to the departure counter i saw quite a long queue. It took about 30 minutes also here. Saying good bye to Mr fahad. Sedihhhh...Belum lagi checked in tau.. Baru nak screen luggage sebelum masuk ke airport. Then adalah makhluk - makhluk yang uncivilized, cut queue i. "Sorry, we are very late..", selamba je cakap..Geram je i.. Tapi buat cool je lahh.. Then after dah siap semua, i straight to the Foreigner Registration Counter. Maklumkan kepulangan kita kat sini. Then baru lah ke counter Indigo.. Makkkkk...excess baggage bebb.. Hee... 20KG extra.. Hambikkk.. I begging to the girl..Hee.. Pls..this is my first visit,..Pls.. , She smiled at me and said, 'Wokey,, i give u discount..Just pay INR 1400." "ALHAMDULLILAHHH..ALLAH bless u..".
Settled bab ni, masuk part immigration dia.. Makk aiiii.. SO DAMNN STRICTTTT.. Only one hand luggage is allowed. So, i memang bawak satu je. My back pack. Kat sini, everything u have to keluarkan.. All kena screen. Kosongkan bag..segala celah di screennya. Then pegi pulak at lappy counter.. Checked lagi.. Then lastly i was brought at the back site of the terminal. Cargo area.. What u have to do kat sini, U yourself have to check your luggage yang u dah checked in tadi tu with the staffs in charged.
First 10 minutes kat sini i just noticed my big bag je yang ada. The rest still were not around. After another 15 minutes of waiting, another one arrived. U know what, this area was open area. Raining and heavy rain.. Crazyyy..I was so freezing.. After 30 minutes of waiting the last bag baru i dapat. Goshhhh..You will face this experience if u visit here. But never mind, i was all alone.. Tanya je kat handsome - handsome guys kat situ kalau tak tau.Sure depa tolong... heeee...Just kidding ok..So serious kann..
Then once settled, i went up to waiting area. Small area je..While looking around i noticed one sweet lady was looking at me and she smiled.. Terus dia tanya, "Assalamuakaikum, where do u come from?,"...Malaysia i told her..We shook hands..Kitarang sembang..She had been in Malaysia for a week. She told me that once she looked at me she really wanted to know me.. I asked her why..Coz first , i m moslem, second she had a feeling that i came from Malaysia... Heeee..And one last reason, she told me she said i m so sweet....(blushinggggg!!!!!...) sweet tang mana tak tau i. Dia siap cakap dengan i, tak nak take her photo ke??? heee... Of coz lah i nak.. Kitarang gelak - gelak sakan kat situ.. Then i asked one guy ( also handsome guyyyy...) to take our picture..MASYALLAHHH..I have one kashmiri female fren nowwww...Yeahhh..
Beriya - iya i tangkap gambar ni rupa - rupa nya bukan flight i pun.
Sebagai kenangan i bought one book about Kashmir.. It costs me arounf Rp3000.
Still heavy rain. I felt bit worried kalau nak naik kapal, hari hujan.. Risau..
Waiting and waiting..
Time to go.. So sadddd....Frankly speaking i cried. Felt so sad. I was leaving Kashmir..
That's my flight to Delhi..
Sayu..sedih..Berat je kaki i melangkah ke flight. all mixed feeling in me..I wiped and wiped my tears. Goshhh.. my dream place. I have to leave u.. Just wait for me next year. INSYALLAHH....
Guys, i really felt so sad. Luckily seat next to me, tak ada orang.. So, orang tak tau i sedang menangis sedih. I just saw and had a view of Kashmir. Last view of it.. YA ALLAHHH permits me to come again next year. And today, almost a month I left Kashmir.. Exactly a month.. Sangat cepat masa berlalu..Rasa macam baru semalam.. Apa - apa pun, i feel so happy that my dream came true. I could see Dal Lake, i could do the cruising, i could eat some of the wazwan, i could prayed in Jamia Mosque, I could also be in Jamia during friday prayer, i could do my donation in friday to Jamia Mosque, I could taste Kehwa, i could see tulip, i could be in Mughal Garden Shalimar, be in Sonamar, be in Pahalgam, I could see Dal Lake from Parimahal... YA ALLAH i feel so blessed. Maha suci ALLAH i could achieve my dreams. Sweet memory in Kashmir..Paradise on Earth...

Allah's Apostle said, "But for the emigration, I would have been one of the Ansar: and if the people took their way in a valley (or a mountain pass), I would take the Ansar's valley or the mountain pass."
