"The second I walked into Mecca (Makkah) tears came down my eyes. Tears of joy. My whole life I wanted to go to Mecca (Makkah) to pray and to give gratitude to Allah. I prayed for the world to have more love, life, peace, joy, health and protection for all of us," wrote the lauded singer.

In another Instagram post, the American singer shared a photo of Mike Tyson, who reportedly accepted Islam in 1992, and father of Tyson, wrapped in the white Ihram cloth, which Muslim men are required to wear when performing the pilgrimage.

"We are on our way to Makkah. Bless my brother Mike Tyson and his father as well. More love more blessings more life for everyone," US rapper DJ Khaled captioned the photo in which Tyson and his father are closely standing next to the singer, wrapped in an ehraam.

And needless to say, Shah Rukh Khan’s visuals from the Holy City of Makkah won millions of hearts and are still doing rounds on the Internet.
