Adam Muhammad, who lives in the UK, said he cried when he first arrived at Makkah for the 2022 pilgrimage.
“I cried when I first arrived,” He told reporters.
According to a report by Islamic Channel, the 53-year-old electrical engineer from the UK travelled around 4000 miles on foot to reach Saudi Arabia.
He thanked the Saudi government for granting him and his family Hajj permits.
“The Saudi government granted my family and me Hajj permits when it knew I was travelling from the UK to Makkah on foot. I met with my family in Madinah after they arrived from the UK and walked together to Makkah. I feel grateful to them,” Adam said.
While commenting on the journey, Adam said it was difficult, and he made it solely for Allah’s sake.
“I would feel mentally exhausted, unable to eat or drink too. But then something inside me would tell me that what are you afraid of? You have Allah by your side, and you can make it. I have lived for 52 or 53 years for myself. Why can’t I dedicate 10 or 11 months to Allah?” He said.
According to reports, Adam reached Ayesha Mosque in Makkah on June 26, where a huge crowd received him.
Adam had documented the progress of his journey on TikTok, where he is very active with over 2.8 million likes.
