Reema Khan has lately been on a buzz-building spree. Her movie with Shaan Shahid is apparently in the works, while last month she was spotted celebrating son Azlaan’s birthday party. And who can forget her physical tiff with long time rival Meera – who has generated much curiosity with her upcoming “Baaji”.
The latest we have on the “Ek Pagal Si Larki” star is that she landed along with husband Tariq Shahan in Jerusalem, where she visited Islam’s third holiest site. The 47 year old star posted on her instagram account, parts of which read like a Wikipedia piece. She stated “Thank ALLAH for the opportunity to visit Al-Aqsa Mosque last month and pray inside the Dome of the Rock –from where our last Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) ascended to heaven on Shab-e-Mairaj. We also prayed at the place where before the ascension, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) led the prayer which was followed by one lac, 24,000 prophets.”
Taking note of the uniqueness of the opportunity, Reema further added “This was a lifetime opportunity and we cannot but thank God-Almighty for this “Saadat”. Also, feel indebted to our friend who arranged it all. Jerusalem is not only very holy to us – Muslims, but also is a very holy place for the monotheist religions of the world. Unlike, what we see in pictures and the calendars -the Golden Dome which is used as an emblem of whenever Jerusalem or Al Aqsa Mosque is mentioned, are in fact two separate structures standing across from each other and within the outer walls of the huge compound. We were fortunate to pray inside Al-Aqsa mosque and also very lucky to go inside the Dome and see the “Rock” – on which we believe, our last Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), ascended to heaven on the 27th day of the Islamic month of Rajab.”
Reema also met the mosque’s mufti and posed for pictures which she posted on her instagram account.
We thoroughly appreciate Reema’s public proclamations of piety and hope the star will continue her journey towards finding inner peace. While most of her countrymen cannot visit the site due to limitations on travel, the “Bulandi” actress made it to the holy site courtesy her foreign nationality
