The intention to build one of the pillars of Islam had been planned by Harto for 38 years.

Since 1985 Harto has saved money from being a pedicab driver and pedicab driver.

Even though his income is not fixed, Harto constantly sets aside his income so that he can go on pilgrimages.

Being orphaned since childhood did not diminish Harto’s desire to work hard to earn a living and save up money so he could go to the Holy Land.

“It’s been a long time since I was a first grade elementary school kid. Hajj is God’s call, since I was little I had no parents, I went with my grandmother,” said Harto as he cried when he met TribunSolo. com, Tuesday (5/16/2023).

Although he had been saving money for the pilgrimage for some time, Harto and his wife only joined in 2011.

The desire to go to the Holy Land with his wife Suminem (58) should also be cancelled.

He canceled last year’s departure with his wife due to government-imposed age restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Suminem had to leave for Mecca alone without Suharto last year.

“Last year they were supposed to leave, but I was hampered by age. My wife left on her own last year,” Harto said.

Harto said his wife was reluctant to go because he wasn’t accompanied by himself, so he finally convinced Suminem to go to the Holy Land.

“The point is, you don’t have to think about me, this is God’s call, this was my first message from my wife,” he added.
