Okay so I don't know why I haven't told anyone yet (It's a busy week, two essays in-class tomorrow, no wonder)
but, guess who is going to hajj?!
obviously not me, I'm bloggin' here!
MY GREAT-GRANDMA (my mom's mom's mom)!
Masha'Allah! She went to Hajj with her sister (great-grand aunt), and her own two children (my grand aunt and uncle)!
She's most likely around 80 something since back in Ethiopia (my mother's side is Oromo/Somali/Yemeni but more Oromo for my great-grandma) she married when she was 15-16.
Now I'm not 15 but when my Aunt called to wish me a happy birthday she jokingly said "You know, girls your age are married back in Africa"
They marry in their teens and it may seem like such a culture shock but that's not what this post was even about.
I just wanted to say that my great-granny (who I've never met only seen in photos) is going for I think her first time to Hajj!
Wow! There's like 4 generations of women in my family. I really want to get a picture of me, her, my grandma and my mom. It would be very awesome.
Please make Dua'a that she'll stay safe and have a great time (come on it's Hajj!)
