THE MOSQUES OF MEDINA – The Prophet`s Mosque (Masjid Nabawi), was first built in the year 622 A.D. The walls were made of mud bricks and the roofs were supported by trunks of palm trees.
The Prophet`s Mosque has undergone several extensions to accomodate a growing number of worshippers until it reaches its actual size. The Prophet`s Mosque extends over 165 000 square meters and can accomodate about one million worshippers at a time. Out of its ten towering minarets, six of them are 99 meters high. This mosque also includes the burial place of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), a museum that displays ancient manuscript of the Quran and a library. The two underground storeys consist of car park that can accomodate some 4 400 vehicles, ablution facilities and the control panel.
Millions of pilgrims visit the Prophet`s Mosque every year.

Q U B A M O S Q U E
When the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) emigrated to Medina, he first landed at Bani `Amr bin `Awf and stayed in Quba for three days. So the Prophet (PBUH) built a mosque there, hence the first mosque built in Medina.
The distance from the Prophet`s Mosque to Quba Mosque (Masjid Qubaa) is 3.25 Kilometers.
Q I B L A T A I N M O S Q U E
Qiblatain mosque (Masjid al-Qiblatain), the mosque of two qibla, so called as it is the mosque in which the qibla was changed from Jerusalem to Mecca (the ka`ba).

Miqat mosque (Masjid Meeqat) is located at Dhul Hulayfa, also known as Abyar Ali. It is the place where pilgrims coming from Medina wishing to perform Umrah or Hajj enter into Ihram before they set for Mecca.

G H A M A M A M O S Q U E
The location where ghamama mosque (masjid ghamama) stands today was an open-air area during the time of the Prophet (PBUH) where the Eid prayers (Eid ul-Fitr and Eid ul-Adha prayers) were most frequently held. Nowadays Ghamama mosque is very near to the Prophet`s mosque due to the extension of masjid Nabawi. The word `ghamam` in Arabic means clouds. This mosque has been given this name because it is the place where the Prophet (PBUH) prayed for rainfall after which it rained profusely.
A B U B A K R M O S Q U E
Abu Bakr mosque (masjid Abu bakr) is located next to Ghamama mosque and it is also one of the locations where the Prophet (PBUH) used to perform the Eid prayers. It is named Abu Bakr because Abu Bakr (R) used to perform the Eid prayers in that location during his caliphate.

AL – MEDINA AL – MUNAWWARA – Al-Medina al-Munawwara (the Lighted City) also known as Madina an-Nabawi (the city of the Prophet), is located in Hijaz, on the western part of Saudi Arabia, some four hundred kilometers north of Mecca.
Medina has a population of about 600 000 inhabitants.
Medina is second to Mecca in spiritual importance among Muslims.
The presence of the Prophet`s Mosque (masjid al-Nabawi), the burial place of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and many other historical sites in Medina attract millions of visitors every year.
Medina became a city of religious importance with the arrival of the Prophet (PBUH) in it in the year 622 A.D. The Prophet (PBUH) and his companions (R) were persecuted in Makkah for practising and preaching a monotheistic religion, that is, Islam which is diametrically opposed to the polytheistic religion of the Makkans of the Jahiliya period.
As Islam began to have a greater influence among the Arabs of Makkah, the Qureish tribe who were the guardians of the Ka`ba and the 360 idols around it, feared that they would lose their privileged position among the Arabs.
They devised all means to stop the spread of Islam which is threatening their social, economic and religious status.
They intensified their persecutions on the the Prophet (PBUH) and his companions (R) to such an extent that the latter were compelled to leave their beloved homeland, their dear ones, and their belongings behind and migrated to Medina to be able to practise their religion.
This event is such an important one in the history of Islam that during the caliphate of Umar bin Khattab (R), the caliph chose this event to mark the beginning of the Islamic calendar.
Al-Medina al-Munawwara in the 21st century
Al-Medina al-Munawwara becomes more lively during the hajj and Ramadanseasons.
During these seasons all the markets and shopping centers around the Prophet`s Mosque are crowded with visitors and are opened till late at night.
In fact, the economy of Medina depends mainly on the millions of visitors it welcomes throughout the whole year, more particularly during hajj and Ramadan seasons, by offering services such as transport and communication facilities, food and accommodations services just to mention a few.
The old hotels around the mosque of the Prophet are being replaced by new ones.
This picture depicts a contrast between the new hotels and the old ones.
There is a large area in the middle of the image that has been cleared for new buildings.
In Madina schools start at 7.30 am and end at 1.30 pm except for the month of Ramadan where school hours are normally 10.30 am till 2.30 pm. So expect more traffic at these times.
Next to this building there is an open area where the teenagers of this region used to gather in the evening and at night to play football and to chat.
Still there are many foreigners working in Saudi Arabia (some 5.5 million in 2006) although the government has made efforts to reduce its reliance on non-Saudi labor (the total population is around 27 million in 2006).
Muntazah Baydah is a recreational park in Madina and is located some 20 km away from the Prophet`s mosque.
The locals used to come here with families and friends to relax and even camp here.
You can hire tents to set up your own camp.
Here the landscape is mountainous and there are lots of thorny plant.
To really explore this area, you will need a four wheel drive vehicle.
MADAIN SALEH – Madain Saleh, also known as al-Hijr, is one of the best known archaeological sites in Saudi Arabia, located near Ula (previously known as Dedan), some 400 kilometers north of Madina.
Madain Saleh was once inhabited by the Nabataeans some 2000 years ago, Petra (located in Jordan) being the capital of the Nabataean kingdom.
The Nabataeans are of Arab origin who became rich by their monopoly on the trade of incense and spice in particular between the East and the Roman, Greek and Egyptian empires.
Madain Saleh has about 130 dwellings and tombs that extend over some 13 kilometers.
However, Muslims believe that Madain Saleh was built and was first inhabited by the people of Thamud. The Quran points out that Thamud `hewed out in the mountains, houses with great skill`(chapter 26 : 149). The Quran makes mention of the people of Thamud with considerable amount of details in several chapters.
Last summer holiday, I set for Madain Salih with two friends. We left Medina at 10.00 am, stopped at Khaybar to have lunch and reached Ula at 2.30 pm.
There is an archaeological museum in Ula. Unfortunately it was closed. Later I come to know that it is opened from 8.30 am till 2.30 pm from Saturday to Wednesday.
Early next morning we left our hotel for Mada`in Saleh. It took us some 20 minutes to reach there. At the gate of the site we were asked to submit our pass permit.
At the gate you will see a signboard like this :
There is also a signboard having a map of Madain Saleh, illustrating its various locations.
Many of the tombs and dwellings at Madain Saleh are surprisingly still in good condition and are really stunning.
The façades of their dwellings are carved out from the mountains. Just above almost all the gates there are various decorations namely; eagles and snakes. The inside of their dwellings are not identical as if they were built for different purposes. Some are small with low ceiling while others are more spacious.
Nowadays many of the dwellings and tombs need stairs to reach.
This is probably one of their meeting place, place of worship or dining room. It measures approximately 13 meters in length, 10 meters in width with a height of 8 meters.
There is a region at Madain Saleh where there are wells, however, this area was not accessible to visitors on my visit to Madain Saleh.
