..the orbs of Muzdalifah and beyond..

..Pic 1..Haram..taken by Nik Faris with his budget digital camera..
....I really do not know what they were...the first time I was shown them was by a young 'tahfiz,' Nik Faris,  who was there with his mother...he had taken some shots around Makkah and Muzdalifah with his budget digital camera...thinking that there was some defects in his camera...he had shown it to his mother.. and later, to me as we get to know each other better....but by then, we were well on our way to Madinah...

Pic 2....Muzdalifah...taken with the same camera..
..I thought they were caused by dust particles..it was very dusty around the holy city of Makkah..but as I searched the web for reports of similar orbs when back in Malaysia, it became evident that such orbs caught on digital camera was a common occurrence... I came across a Dr  Klaus Heinemann...and article on him can be read here...

..Pic 3...Nabawi Mosque, Medinah....taken with Sony Ericsson
Xperia  with flash..
...in Madinah, we tried again taking night shots around Nabawi Mosque, this time with a Sony Ericsson Xperia smartphone...with flash on manual  we took pic 3 and pic 4...we marveled at the orbs..not able to explain it but not totally dismissing them either...

Pic 4...pic taken a few seconds later by pakmat...
..pakmat even took a shot of a roommate, Haji Rasit, as he was reading the Quran in our hotel room, and got this picture of him with  a small orb seemingly floating next to him...Pic 5..

Pic 5...shot taken by pakmat in our hotel room,
Al-Haram, Medina..


..Pic 6...the sky over Nabawi..pic taken by Pakmat..
..intrigue, pakmat searched the web for other images...and found the following pictures...all with orbs in them...there were no mention of it by the owners...perhaps they dismissed them as just a quirky display of light...

..Pic 7...pakmat searched the web and found this picture..
..MasjidilHaram..

..Pic 8...and this...


...Pic 9..and this of Nabawi..


..Pic 10..and this...


..Pic 11 .pic taken by wife with pakmat's handphone, HTC Aria..
..no flash...no orbs..

..Pic 12...taken by pakmat with HTC Aria...no flash..no orbs..

Salam Pakmat

SubhanAllah. As technology develops, we see the Truths as revealed and must be affirmed by having faith hundreds of years ago will be new discoveries.

But Truths like Hell will just have to be experienced isn't it?... if one is still unable to affirm on faith.

The orbs normally appear during religious occasions. Sometimes they naturally appear when we take a picture at an isolated area which not many human live in.

Hi Pakmat, I've been following your blog entries on this wonderful and meaningful spiritual journey. It's eye opening for a non-muslim like me. And I've never heard of the orbs before! I'm so curious that I read Dr Klaus Heinemann's article on it.

There's a sentence which mentioned :"'Over time, I realised that a flash seemed to be essential to capture them, even in daylight. I believe this is because we can see the orbs only through the process in physics known as fluorescence. The camera flash sparks this fluorescence process, making the orbs visible to the camera.'

I somehow buy the idea. How about you?

Salam Red..science, sometimes play catch up with me with truth..and it is the way of the ignorance that truth burnt at the stake, such as it is..

Salam SPD..yes, its like as if they chose to appear or disappear..makes you wonder, doesn't it..

Salam jamilah..I was told as such myself..that they are doas..tanda barakah...I dont know..until they tell us what they are, your guess is as good as mine..

salam pakmat, i too captured such orbs semasa di muzdalifah... terkedu saya masa tengok gambar2 tu..

pakmat said...

Salam YuinTing..somehow your comments make me happy...and glad..I am glad that I can share my experiences with you..it was something new for me, too..:) I've promised some friends that I will blog about it upon my return..I am doing that now..in fits and spurts..the haj have, indeed, left an indelible mark upon my life..and orbs is one of those mysteries that somehow affirm my faith..that one are one of God's creatures..and that there is a place for all of us in this place called earth..

Hi. I have alot of video footage of orbs. Do you think it could be a form of Jinn?
