In March, Meccastars wrote a piece on Senad Hadzic’s ambitious expedition from his home country of Bosnia-Herzogovina to Mecca with the intention of making it in time for Hajj. His faith, courage, and fortitude inspired many as he braved several countries, including war-ravaged Syria.
In an interview with BBC, Hadzic sheds light on his travels. He told BBC, “I walked across seven countries, two deserts, 5,650 kilometres, without money, only with a rucksack weighing 20 kilograms”.
Carrying both a Quran and a Bible, Hadzic believed God was with him throughout his journey.
“If I didn’t believe that God was with me, the he was protecting me and guiding me, I wouldn’t have even reached Bulgaria, let alone Mecca.”
He told BBC:
“I walked across seven countries, two deserts, 5,650 kilometres, without money, only with a rucksack weighing 20 kilograms.”
We pray Senad continues to inspire people with his message of love. Senad Hadzic’s journey of Hajj serves as a reminder to people of the timeless call of God in an age of increasing secularity.
