In and around Masjid al Nnabawi

Masjidu Nnabawi, own Masjid of our beloved Rasoolullahi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) is a shelter to many believers. They love their Rasoolullah (صلى الله عليه و سلم) from depth of the heart and long always to be there is His presence. They feel they were not privileged to be lived in era of Rasoolullahi (صلى الله عليه و سلم) and so were unable to see Him with own eyes. But with their deep love to Him they feel being in vicinity of Roudhah Shareef is of great pleasure to them. So they come in masses to Madinah from all part of the world.

During my recent visit I met at the courtyard of Masjidu Nnabawi an old statesman who had visited Madinah in 1972. He is hailing from south Indian state, Kerala. He was in his early 20s when his utmost desire to reach the Holy places blossomed and he arranged the ship passage charge of 700 Indian Rupees. It was after an eight days voyage he reached Jeddah. He was the only youth in his caravan of around 50 people because only aged people used go for Hajj in those times.

He told both Holy Masjids were smaller with fewer facilities in 1972. The place was full with tents setup by pilgrims over desert sands. He visited the Holy places twice after that and is astonished with facilities now there. All praise to Allah who opened up flood gates of wealth on Arabian Peninsula by means of petrol. Thanks to Allah who powered rulers who have a demonstrative attitude in building up high class facilities in the Holy places.

As means of transportation improved and wealth increased in believer community more people are coming for Hajj. Importantly many are coming for Umrah so making the Holy places busy round the year. With number of pilgrims increasing year by year all these facilities are becoming more and more important.

Umbrellas are erected at courtyard of Masjidu Nnabawi to protect from scorching heat of sun. It is folded during night and spread in day time.

Zamzam is kept in cool containers for thirsty pilgrims fill their stomach. Zamzam is a drink, a food and a medicine!

Cleaning vehicles and men are everywhere who sets the area hygienic.

Even pigeons are engaged in cleaning the Haram by eating up crickets messed up there.

    Just got back from al-Madina al-Munawwara. All I can say is that if people do not visit then they are doing dhulm to their own souls. Such a beautiful city with the most beautiful and perfect resident there waiting to host us – sal-Allahu alaihi wasallam!

    Oh how I miss Madina, when it is less than 48 hours I was there. 😥
