On 19th July, I went to Pakistan with my family. I was very excited about this trip, as I have many relatives who live in Pakistan.
Chawinda and Gujranwala
My first stay was in Chawinda stayed with my relatives there. We also went to Sialkot. Sialkot is home to a beautiful park. It had all types of rides, types we would normally not see here in England. Playing at the park with my sisters was fun, we played for a while before my parents decided that it was time to say farewell to this beautiful park. We also went to Gujranwala. Gujranwala is the city where my father used to live in Pakistan. It was exciting visiting the place where my father used to live.
Rabwah is a city built by our jama’at, founded by Hazrat Musleh-e-Ma’ood (ra). Rabwah demonstrates a city of peace filled with the motto,” Love For Allah, Hatred For None”. We visited places such as Darul-Ziafat, which serves as a guest house, serving accommodation and meals. I really enjoyed exploring these new places. After, we went to Bahisht-e- Maqbara for prayers. Then we visited Gol bazaar for some shopping. We also visited Tahir heart institute, which is one of the leading hospitals in the world, caring for people from all walks of life.
I loved going to the places in Pakistan. I wanted to stay there for a long time but obviously I couldn’t. In England there are fun places but I would recommend Pakistan to people. It’s a fantastic place to be. There were lots of other places we went, such as: malls, bazaars, restaurants and much more. My family enjoyed Pakistan. Though I have to admit Pakistan is not like England. England is always freezing and gloomy but Pakistan is a sunny, bright place. I’m sure anyone who goes there will agree with my point of view.
In Lahore we visited safari park. It was so much fun. There were lots of animals. Another day we went to Minar-e-Pakistan. There was a tall building there. There were also decorated buggies. We also sat on a boat. We went to Allama Iqbal sialkot house there were loads of memorable things like beds, rooms, books and much more. I would love if other people visit Pakistan.
