After getting the chance to have a good scrub and a nice sleep, it was time to head out and make our way towards Algeria. We left the hotel after having breakfast, which was approximately 300 kM from the border.
This seems to be the story of the ummah at the moment, and for this reason Allah has allowed our enemies to overpower us whilst we bicker with one another and fight for the sake of a flag. For this reason I strongly encourage those on the convoy not to fly any flags as this fuels nationalism as in Islam we only have one flag, the flag the messenger of Allah carried.
When going through these countries and borders, all which have their own flags, uniforms, anthems and constitutions, it hard not to think that Palestine will not be liberated until this is all eliminated and the ummah of the messenger s.a.w. becomes one nation. Once upon a time the only document one needed to pass through foreign territory within the Islamic borders was his testimony of Allah’s oneness. In fact even non–Muslims were free to travel within the land.
This stretch of the journey is a very long one approximately 1000 miles so we’ll be here for a good few days.
Tonight will be spent at the border, and I’ve heard that they did arrange a hotel for us, but as we didn’t leave the border due to the late arrival of one of the groups, the 200 kM journey would be too much of a struggle to complete as its now drawing close to 11 o’clock.
I won’t be able to put this post up as I’m unable to get to an internet cafe, but as soon as I get the chance I will do so.
