The Visit to Madinah

The Visit to Madinah

If it is possible, a person should go to Madinah and visit the blessed grave of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Musjid-e-Nabawi. This could be done before or after performing hajj. With regard to visiting Madinah, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said: “The person who visits me after my demise will receive the same blessings as the person who visited me during my lifetime.” Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said: “The person who goes for hajj and does not visit me has demonstrated great impoliteness towards me.” With regard to Musjid-e-Nabawi, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has said: “The person who offers one salaat in it shall get the reward of offering 50 000 salaats.” May Allah Ta’ala bless us with this opportunity and may He grant us the success to carry out good and pious deeds. Aameen.
