It has never been on my mind. Nor has it ever occurred once in my lifetime even when I was at a younger age.
But, out of the blue, I am thinking seriously thinking of uptaking Haj sometime around next year, inshallah. I have succumbed to the strategy of whereby I don't announce anything unless I know it is actually going to happen.
But, taking this into consideration, I will this one an exception just to see how far I am really willing to go on that spiritual journey.
The reason why it has popped into my mind is because of the mental state of a Hajj after they have finished their journey and how they feel towards the world as if they feeling everything like it was the first time; as if to be, born all over again. I remember a Hadith that talks about that very situation in the Prophet's (PBUH) own words, but won't quote it here because I don't memorize it well.
I suppose all I have to do right now is to see how far this sudden decision will take me.
