I can see lots of people wearing Ihram clothes. Inside the ka'ba, there's a sacred mosque where all people pray. In front of me, I can see a big black square whenever I pray. That's called the ka'ba. I can also see a gold thing called Maqam Ibrahim where I can see the footprints of Prophet Ibrahim. And a white circle called Hijir Ismail. In the Hijir Ismail, I can see some of the people praying there and I can also 'The Hajar Al Aswad'. We couldn't reach it because there were a lot of people so we couldn't squeeze through the crowd. Always around the ka'ba I can see a crowd doing Twaf.
I can hear people saying the takbirat Al Hajj and I can hear people praying and reading quran.
I can smell the perfume of the ka'ba and also the perfume of the Hajar Al Aswad. We have these perfumes.
My feelings towards the ka'ba is I feel like it's a dream and I also felt incredulous when I saw it. It was like I imagined it. I also felt very excited because I saw it on television and now it's right in front of me.
I touched the ka'ba for the first time and I couldn't believe it! After I touched it I looked at my hands and said to myself,''Oh my god, I can't believe I touched the ka'ba. First time in my life.''
