Q: I’ve just gotten back from umrah on the 26th Feb. Subhanallah, I have never felt so much at peace when I was there, especially being in Musjid-e-Nabawi. Being there I did not feel any pain in my body (cancer), not a single worry was on my mind. My problem is that since coming back home, I have become sad and crying most of the day. I crave and miss to be there. I do not want to be here in my own country. I feel that when I was there, I did not do much ibadah, time was wasted as I was just learning ways over there. Is there any dua that I can make to increase the chances of Allah inviting me back there? I promise myself that if I get to go there again Insha Allah, I will not leave any time wasted like I did before. Is there any way for Allah to grant me death in Madina or Makkah? Or is it wrong for me to make dua like that?
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
