Some of them selected these mediums as they are cost savvy when compared to the cost of travelling through air. Others wanted to make and feel their efforts they would do for Allah (SWT). Yet, we were observing only “men” in such decisions.

Now this year, we woman appeared and become the first lady to reach Makkah by using bicycle, the nontraditional method of transportation.

She further stated that she formed her cycle e Merzouga which means “grace with blessing” in Maghrebi Arabic. She also shared on her Instagram that she had a fear to stop while travelling. She wasn’t aware of how much her physical health would support her on fulfilling her wish. She just hoped that her physical health would accept and support her wish.

As she was alone, she also had a fear of getting stopped from entering the Holy Place of Makkah. However, she didn’t focus on her fears and continued to paddle and crossed her path.
