FEED THE POOR

Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

The 52-year-old’s mission called the “Peace Journey” prompted him to walk through many countries in Europe, Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan before he entered Saudi Arabia.

The self-employed electrical engineer met dozens of people along the way. A father and son duo flew from The Netherlands to Turkey to help him for seven days.

Muslim pilgrimage or hajj is a lifetime journey that many aspire to.

Mohammed is not the first person to walk to Mecca from the United Kingdom. British man Farid Feyadi also set off on a similar journey from London in 2020 to debunk misconceptions in the Western media about Islam.

There have been other similar adventures, especially with regard to performing hajj.

Earlier this month, young Indonesian Muhammad Fauzan’s journey to Makkah took more than seven and a half months, riding his bike for nearly 5000 kilometers.

Fauzan kicked off his journey from Magelang, Central Java, on Nov. 4, 2021. He performed Umrah after reaching Makkah three weeks ago.

Another Indonesia Muslim walked more than 9,000 kilometers to perform hajj in 2017.
