After Makah, Madina is one of the holy cities. This city is different from others for a number of reasons. With the Umrah package, it is possible to go to Madina. Muslims from all over the world go to Madina to get its blessing. Many of us still don't know many of the hidden secrets of this holy city. Here are a few of them.
1-MADINA is Safe to DAJJAL: Only Madina will be safe from the anger and chaos that Dajjal will cause. Allah's Messenger told us a long story about Ad-Dajjal. Among the many things he told us for sure, he said, "Ad-Dajjal will come, and he won't be able to get into Medina. He will land in some of the areas outside of Madina that are salty and don't grow much.
2-Masjid-e-Quba in Madina: Masjid-e-Quba was the first place the Prophet PBUH went to in Madina after moving from Makkah. Abu Bakar R.A. was with him. They got there on Monday, the 12th of Rabi al-Awwal, 14 years after the birth of the Prophet. This date marks the beginning of the Islamic calendar, or Hijra (16th July 622 CE). Here, the Prophet PBUH built the first mosque in Islam.
3-MASJID-E-NABAWI (Prophet Mosque): Al-Masjid an-Nabawi, also known as the Prophet's Mosque, is a mosque in the city of Medina that was first built by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Al-Masjid an-Nabawi is one of the largest mosques in the world. It was the second mosque built in the history of Islam.
4-ROZA MUBARAK: The only part of the Roza Mubarak that can be seen is the gold grill. This is the Blessed Section, where the Prophet Muhammad PBUH died and is buried. It is also used to cover the graves of the first two leaders of Islam. To visit Madina and do the Ziyarat (visiting the grave of the Holy Prophet PBUH), the Prophet PBUH said, "Whoever visits me after my death is like he who visited me during my life."
5-RIYAAD-UL-JANNAH in Madina: The Riyadh-Ul-Jannah is part of the Prophet Muhammad's PBUH mosque, and he always pointed it out. The area between the Sacred Chamber and the Mimbar is called the Garden of Paradise, or Riyaad-ul-Jannah. It is now known for its green carpet, and Rawdah is another name for it.
6-JANNAT-UL-BAQI in Madina: Jannat-Ul-Baqi is the first cemetery in the city of Madina. It is in the southeast corner of the Prophet's Mosque. It is also called Baqi al-Gharqad, and it is an important Islamic site in the Hejazi region. In this cemetery are the graves of family members and friends of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
7-MASJID-E-QIBLATAIN in Madina: Sawad bin Ghanam bin Kaab built Masjid Al-Qiblatain in the second year of Hijra. It is important to Muslims because the Quran told Prophet Muhammad PBUH to change the direction of the Qibla there. The Qibla, which is the direction Muslims face when they pray, was then moved. This happened on the 15th of Shaban, when Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was praying Dhuhr with his friends. Then, the Quran told him to turn toward the Kaaba. So, all Muslims around the world now face the Kaaba when they pray.
8-MOUNTAINS OF UHUD AND MOUNTAIN OF ABL-E-AYR: The Heights of Uhud are the mount of heaven, and Jabil e Ayr is the mount of hell. Uhud comes from the words Ahad and Ayr. Ahad means "the One" and Ayr means "wild ass." Mount Uhud has a great history because it is where the Battle of Uhud was fought against Kufaar.
9-WADI-E-JINN 30 km from Madina: WADI-E-JINN is only 30 km from Madina. It has a secret that has attracted and interested people from all over the world. The biggest secret of the valley is that cars and trucks drive on the road without the driver touching the steering. People have seen that the vehicles are moved toward Medina, and the people who live there think that Jinn are there. People know it as Wadi Al-Baidah or Wadi Al-Jinn.
10-USTUWAANAH HANNANAH (THE WEEPING PILLAR): This is also known as the Ustuwaanah Mukhallaq. This is the holiest of the pillars because this is where the Prophet (PBUH) prayed. There used to be a date palm tree right here. Before the mimbar was invented, the Prophet (PBUH) would lean on it while he spoke. The Prophet PBUH used the mimbar for the khutbah when it was ready. When the change happened, the tree made such a horrible sound of crying that the whole masjid echoed, and everyone in the masjid started crying. The Prophet PBUH then said, "The tree cries because the zikr of Allah used to be close to it, but now that the mimbar is there, the zikr of Allah is no longer close to it." If I hadn't touched it, it would have kept crying like that until the Day of Qiyamah." The tree finally died and was buried.
Muslims go to Madina because it has many beautiful places to visit. In London, there are a lot of travel agencies that help visitors by offering December Umrah Packages 2023.
