About Al-Masjid an-Nabawi
Al-Masjid an-Nabawi, often referred to as The Prophet’s Mosque, is one of the world’s oldest mosques. Located in the sacred city of Madinah, Al-Masjid an-Nabawi is the second holiest site in Islam. The mosque was built by the Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) himself in 622CE and is also his final resting place.
When the Prophet (S.A.W) was close to his death, he lived with Hazret Aisha (R.A) in their house. This house now forms part of Al-Masjid an-Nabawi and is regarded as a sacred place.
After his passing, many people tried to take some of the amber-scented soil covering the holy grave and tried to use it for healing purposes. To stop this disturbance, Hazret Aisha (r.a) built a wall in the middle of the room to protect the grave. The first two Caliphs, Abu Bakr (r.a) and Umar (r.a) were buried in Hujra al-Saadet, at the foot of the Messenger of Allah, as per their will.
The mosque was demolished and rebuilt twice throughout history to allow for additional development. It was also expanded several times over the centuries to accommodate the increasing number of visitors each year. The extensions included Omer bin Abdulaziz’s construction of the pentagon wall, the addition of minarets, beautiful Islamic calligraphy on the walls, huge pillars and the iconic Green Dome. At present, the mosque covers an area of over 1.5 million square metres to accommodate millions of visitors each year.
