Coming to Madina !!!!

by tjanjua

Asslam-o-Alikum All:
Well, I am planning a trip with my family in September to Medina, inshallah. We will be coming to Madina after performing Umrah inshallah. Our stay will be very short,; about 48 hours and we want to maximize the benefits of our stay inshallah. I know it is going to be Ramadan and with hot weather, mobility is going to be some what limited. But if you guys can help in the following, it will be really appreciated. May Allah bless and reward you for your efforts.

What are the good, close to Haram and reasonably priced hotels in Madina?
What are the other sacred places we can visit close to Haram?
Good places to eat and Shop?
What is the best way for a family (4 people)to get around in Madina?
We have a flight to Jeddah, right after Friday prayer and will be very tight on time. Any tips so we don't miss the prayer and still make to the airport for the flight. How far is the airport from the Masjid Nabawi?
Anything else you like to add which is helpful in our stay?

Thank you and Jazak Allah Khair

Tanweer

Re: Coming to Madina !!!!

Dear Brother, Walaikum Asalam
First of all congralutions on your Umrah. May Allah accept it.
As regards your questions, I would respond as follows based on my many visits to the holy city during last 18 years;
1- There are lot of reasonably priced hotels around Haram. In fact the Haram is surrounded by hotels. However, depending on your budget you may check around, however those beyond Bab-e-Majeedi (towards North) are quite cheap (those behind Movenpick and Taqwa Inter-Con.
2- Sacred places are Al Baqai Graveyard (adjacent to Haram - usually opened after Fajar and Asar prayers). Another sacred and historic place is Quba Masjid (about 4-5 kilometer from Haram). According to authentic Ahadiths, Prophet PBUS used to visit Al Baqai and Quba Masjid.
3- There are many eatieries around Haram area - depending on your pocket.
4- Taxis are available aplenty around Haram area
5- It normally takes about 30 minutues from Haram to get to the airport;
Also, it case some one has his own transport (or a hired car) it is best to take accomodation away from Haram (available comparatively cheaply) and drive to Haram since excellent underground parking is available in Haram.

Best luck.

Walikom Asslam, Same What I replied about your quistion in Makkah applied in Madinah with advantege that the 5 stars hotels in Madinah very close to Haram and so many like Hilton and so and so. you can visit Baqee also in Madinah close to haram, the companion of propheth Mohammed beace be upon him buried there. regarding your flight to jeddah if it is after 3pm Saudi time you can pray Jumah and catch it, before that is a risk. Inshalah you will be happy in Madinah, wish you the best.

Travel Tips for Medina

Nabawi Mosque

by imran8852

Although Visiting The prophet's Mosque Has No Connection With The Hajj Or Umrah Rituals , We Felt It Is Our Obligation As Muslim To Visit The Prophet's Grave And Mosque As A Token Of Our Love And Appreciation To Him When We Are In Saudi Arabia. Unlike Masjidil Haram Which Open 24hrs , The Nabawi Mosque Close after Isya' And Re-open Again Around 3.00 a.m Just Before Dawn For The Next Prayer. No Words Can Really Describe My Feelings.

celebrating the Visit: 'lolouloying'

by Manyana

i've seen such an unsual yet, sweet way of celebration as much as making the noise of 'lolouloy'! i've been many times to the Prophet's Mosque to pay him a Ziyara or a visit. The Visit is kind of a religious habit, than a ritual, of leaving home in pursuit of seeing the Beloved, ie, the Prophet. it's specially common among saudi sufi as opposed to saudi wahhabism which forbids the habit per se. you just get close to the grave of the Prophet and his two companions, say salam, perform two rakahs and make your prayers or wishes, and inshallah they'll be granted or so as it is widely compellingly believed. however, non-saudi pilgrims, esepecially those who come from abroad, they celebrate this Visit in the most unsual sweet way ever. They actually celebrate as if they are attending a wedding Arabian reception instead of showing respect to a holy place as such. They cover their mouths with their hands and start making a very loud noise, lolouloooooooooyyyy--literally speaking. usually this is carried out by women as it's not considered so manly! i just laugh my head off when i see senior ladies doing it while the women guards of the Mosque struggle to shut them up,lol.
so don't be overwhelmed or freaked out; it's common to see and hear such a celebrative Ziyara. don't try to indulge it as the guards get very strict about this to the point of pushing or yelling at the visitors. just nod and smile:^)

Visit The Martyrs Of Uhud

by imran8852

It Is A Sunnah To Visit The Martyrs Of Uhud Which Is 5km From The City. The Prophet's Uncle Saidina Hamzah Received The Honor As Martydom When He Was Killed In The Battle Field Of Uhud. The Prophet s.a.w Used To Visit Uhud And Prayed For The Souls Of Those Who Were Buried there.

The tombs of Ohod warriors.

by marimar_72

The muslims were defeted in Ohod Battle against Quraish tribe,here you can see the tombs of the warriors,
on top of the list is:
Hamzah ibn abdul Mutalib(the prophet`s uncle).
It is located 4Km north of the prophet`s mosque.

The 2nd Holy city Al Madinah Al Monawarah

by marimar_72

"Al Madina Al Monawarah*"

Before islam came to Al Madina,it was called Yathreb,then it was given this name which means the city of light.
It`s true,when you arrive to Madina you will feel so relieved from all your swarrows and pains.
Amazingly spiritual experience.

"Al Madina*"

Al Madina Al Monawarah is the city that the prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him)chose to settle and live until the day he died.
In Madina,the first thing that will greet you are the palm trees,where you can see many dates plantation on the side of the roads.
I had a chance to visit Madina 3-4 times,all done in winter exept for my last visit in May 2005.

"A very old pic"

I found this picture among my mom's collection.
The pic is dated to year 1974.*
