In Saudi taking photograph of certain places is prohibited so this is the picture of Al- Baqi’(some called it Al- Bakee) that I took from one of the book cause normally we can only take the picture from afar. Here is the place where most of the prophet families and companions (sahabah) were buried. It’s a walking distance from the Nabawi Mosque. Muslim who passes away in Medina during Hajj or Umrah will also get the honor to bury here. Please take some of your time to visit Al- Baqi’ cemetery when you are in Madina and make Du'a for those who have gone before us…May God Bless Their Soul!

Address: 3km From Madinah City.
Everything about the inside is of the finest to show respect to God- the pillars, the lamps, the carpets. Even the Imam has a special timbre in his voice .
Unfortunately all the holy places of Islam are forbidden to non-believers, and photography is also prohibited, but with so many pilgrims [3.5 million in 2006/7], it is difficult to enforce the ban since mobile phones with inbuilt cameras are everywhere.

In 1861, an Egyptian army officer, Colonel Muhammad Sadiq stepped ashore at the little Red Sea port of al Wajh, on the coast of Hijaz and made a military survey of the pilgrim routes between Wajh, Madinah and Yanbu'; he carried with him the usual surveying equipment, but he also had a new apparatus to facilitate his work – a large and unwieldy wet-plate camera – with which he take be the first pictures ever taken there, of the Prophet's mosque and the Holy City of Madinah.
In 1880 he returned to the area with the Egyptian Mahmal and again brought a camera; he was able to take photographs of Makkah, Madinah, Muna area and other sites associated with the Pilgrimage, on this visit however he did not intend to use his camera for the secular purpose of a military survey; as a Muslim, his intention now was to make a holy record of one of the sacred duties of Islam – the Pilgrimage to Makkah – and he was not alone in his intention, although the motives of some of those who followed were possibly something other than holy.
Colonel Muhammad Sadiq was publicly recognized when he was awarded a certificate and gold medal at the Venice photographic fairs of 1876 and 1881.
Sadiq brought his camera to the Hijaz a mere twenty or so years after the invention of photography in Europe. However, the history of the camera itself has a close connection with the Arab world. It was the tenth century Arab physicist, Abu Ali al-Hasan ibn al-Haytham (c.965-c.1039 AD), who first described in detail an optical device to make an image: the "camera obscura", or "dark room". Al-Haytham, also known by the mediaeval Latin version of his name Alhazen, described in his treatise how, if a small hole was made in the shuttered window of a dark room, an inverted image of the outside world would be seen on the opposite wall. He also stressed the relationship between size of aperture and sharpness of image.

outside the haram, after fajar or asr prayers, you can take a taxi to do ziyarah of all the holy places in and around medina. this will include masjid quba, masjid qiblatayn, jabl ohud and many others depending on the time and places that the taxi driver can take u
they charge 10 SR or 15 SR per person and it is usually done by share a taxi system or if you want your own private taxi they would take about 45 SR.

When the sun rises over the prophet`s mosque,these domes slide automaticly at 7:00AM each day,providing sun light from the opend cilieings.
The best thing is when most people in the mosque rise their voices saying (Allaho Akbar)or in other words,God Al mighty,when they see this happening.
Because photography is prohibited in the mosque,I took this picture from my opend bag ;-)
