It was so great, subhanallah! My brother in law gave it to my husband and I as an anniversary present. All three of us went today. I was really fun and I was sooo nervous. We jumped out of a plane from 14,000 ft
Right when I jumped, I screamed, "La illaha illallah!" because I wanted those to be my last words in case I died, and at the point, I was thinking there would be a high chance of that happening...LOL.
Being up there was so intense! I felt like my stomach was left in the plane and I just fell down. Once we opened the parachute, everything looked so beautiful. The creations of Allah swt are truly a beauty. We just have to stop and marvel at them. It was like time was frozen up there and I saw the world.
The only downside was that since we were first time divers, we had to go with a diving instructor, so basically you two jump together and are strapped together. We asked if there were any female instructors but they said there were only males. The hubby wasn't too excited about it and obviously I would have preferred going with a woman, but I mean...we were falling to the earth at 150 m/h, so there wasn't any shananigans going on there. Either way, I know it wasn't right, so inshallah if I ever go again, it'll be with a woman or I will just watch from below. I had to go just once at least.
I was so worried about my hijab and if it would bother me or choke me, but alhamdulillah it was not a bother at all! Before, I used to be so apprehensive about putting on hijab, but it's only a problem if you let it be one. Who says Hijabis can't do exciting things!
(Our faces have been blurred for obvious reasons)
You guys should all do this at least once. It is so amazing and breathtaking! Am I crazy? Or would you do this too?
Until next time...
