Humble whisperings of a humble speck from Madinatun Nabi, the Radiant, the Beloved, the Blessed, the Protected, the Endowed, THE HUMBLE CITY of LIGHT that forever shines from the luminance of our Beloved Al-Mustafa, the best of creation, SallAllahu alaihi wasallam.

    As Salam O Alikum My dearest Khala Noor

    I have meaning to write to you fro some time now but I have found it difficult to express myself, not much of a writer. Allhamdullillah Today i thought, Im going to write to my dearest khala. Jazakallah kheyr for sharing the beautiful posts may Allah bless you and your family with his mercy and increase you my dear khala. My heart yearns to be there with our beloved Al mustafa, but Im so far from being with him due to the ill state of my heart.
    My dearest Khala please pass my salams on to our beloved and pray that Allah over looks my shortcomings through his mercy and gives me the tawfiq to better myself and illmuniates my heart with the love of his habib Al Mustapha may peace and blessing be upon him. Ameen. And Inshallah that I may walk to our habib and offer him my salams at the rawda. Ameen. jazakllah Kheyr Khala (I hope you dont mind calling me calling you khala)

    Please keep me and my family in your duaas and please keep in touch
    Thinking of you.

        Assalamu alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,
        Alhumdulillah this little space connects us from so many places. Insha’Allah keep making the intention to be invited to this Shining City. We are merely guests and never know how long the invitation is for, so Shukr is made for every minute that passes whilst being blessed as a neighbour. And if not physically here then Alhumdulillah we can fill our heart with the love of our Beloved Prophet SallAllahu alaihi wasallam from wherever we may be,

    I’ve been scrolling n paging around this blessed blog for a long time even when I was away physically from my Nucleus (Madinatul Munawwarah) but alHamduLILLAH! I am back permanently to Sayyadatul Buldan, the city of my Beloved Habeeb Alaihi afDalus Salati wat Tasleem… I can’t find words to express my feelings for this blog!! I rather say it as Spiritual Enhancement Center where the thirsty people like me can find the taste of Kauther ๐Ÿ™‚ This is the place where rivers of texts are overflowing; the moons of the love for Beloved Mustafa (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) are beaming; the suns of reverence for His Presence are effulgent; the stars of the light of the Faith are glittering; The gardens of Truth (Al-Haq) are swaying; The flowers of research send out fragrance; the nightingales of the Guidance are twittering! May ALLAH give you more strength and better Jaza for the divine cause you are working for ๐Ÿ™‚ May ALLAH bless us with the faithful and respectful life and death of Madina Munawwarah Mutahharah. Aameen

    Asalaamu alaikam dear khala noor,

    Your blog is a source of sukoon, a place where one can dive into a pool of noor and become immersed in the pictures, stories, nasiha and love…

    Mashallah how Allah t’ala guides and connects, my husband stumbled across your site over a year ago and since then we realise that many of our friends are also connected to you, how beautiful that you have a connection and touch the hearts and duas of so many all over the world, many that you may be completely unaware of…Subhanallah…

    Your recent posts make us ponder death, the pictures of the janaza ‘blurred’ strike a harsh reality of the unknown which awaits, Ya Rabb we seek help in your grace ameen… The excerpt of the pearl necklace reminds us of the fact that we are merely part a story in which only Allah t’ala knows the twists and turns it will take…when we depart from this dunya our actions will be the only thing we take ‘like a necklace around our necks.’

    “Oh Allah ease by it on our souls at death the agonies of the removal, the convulsions of the groaning when the soul reaches the collar bone and the Angel of Death, Allah send peace on our Prophet and on him, appears to seize it from the veils of the unseen and it shall be said ‘is there anyone to treat?’ He mixes for it from the lethal bitterness of death a cup of poisonous taste, firing from it the bow of death with the arrow of the lonliness of separation. The departure draws close to the afterlife, actions become a necklace around necks and graves are the resting abode until the appointed time of the Meeting Day.” [Extract from the Supplication for the completion of the Quran Al-Imam Zain al-Abidin Ali ibn Imam Husain]

    Please keep us in your duas as you are in ours…

    i have one question which i have been trying to find. do you have old and rare images of madinah? the houses of the companions, the old madinah markets from the time of the prophet? etc. i would love to see such images as i have been looking everywhere. the places where the companions had lived, worked and images of the old madinah and meccah. i would be extemely greatful if you could post them on your site or let me know. as i am reading ibn ishaq’s siratur rasullah at the moment, the images would go hand in hand with the fantastic seerah.

    Wa ‘alaikumus Salam Dear Sheikh,
    JazakumuLlahu khairan for your visit and for your encouraging words.
    Being no photography as early as those blessed times then the few images that are available are impressions individuals have gleaned from the Seerah. This previous post http://almiskenah.blogsome.com/2007/07/22/a-ramble-10-cont/ has a photo created by the resident artist, Brother Noushad, (see his brilliant photos at the link on the side bar) of the Research and Studies Centre here, http://www.al-madinah.org/madina/index.php, where they have a huge model of Madinah at the time or Rasulullah SallAllahu alaihi wasallam, as well as other information, but mostly in Arabic. In the past, prior to blogging I had access to a few other impressions of the houses of the Sahabah RadhiAllahu anhum, but they are in a different country now.
    Many Shukukh when taking groups for Ziyarah advise one to look beyond what is the tangible, and allow the eyes of the heart to feel that one is back during those Mubarak times. If I come across anything I will post, Insha’Allah.

As most, if not all the islamic heritage were still standing. I meant from that period. Secondly, i am not a scholar! Lol. Its just my name, ‘sheikh’ – a family name sort of thing.

    I have emailed you. But also, Insha’Allah if you familiarize yourself with the ‘virtual tour’ category, with the Ahadith and stories relevant to the various locations, this should be a good foundation. Also the ‘ziyaratun nabi’ category deals more with the area around the Sacred Hujrah.

    I came across your beautiful blog on the blogsome website a few months back while searching for anything that would quench my thirst for information, in form of litrature but especially visual, of the most beautiful place in the world, Al Madina Al Munawwarah. Just the site of the Blessed dome sends shocks down my body. Absolutly awsome. I have gone through all the wonderful and beautifully presented blogs and have just discovered that you have moved here, so alot of catching up to do.

    Alhamdolilla, the Light of the Universe, the most praised in the world, our Aqa-o- Maula (May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon them) have called me to Madina very soon. Inshallah I will be leaving for the blessed journey this coming thursday 1st of September and inshallah will be in Madina Shareef on 18th Ramadhan. Please do duas for me.

    I want to make a request. Can you please post more pictures of the outer districts of Madina Shareef, where the Madni people live and Please more pictures of the numerous date palm gardens/ farms. Jazakallah

    Please forward me your e-mail address.

    Wasalaamu Alaikum.

    Assalamu alaikum Wa Rahamatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,
    Dear Salwa and Bashrat,
    Ameen thumma Ameen for all your Adiyah and JazamuLlahu khairan for all the sweet words of support. It is always comforting to know that some are benefiting form this humble space. Insha’Allah I will be emailing you both.
    Masha’Allah for your blessing of being in the Kingdom Dear Salwa, and another Masha’Allah for your blessing of soon being here Dear Bashrat.
    There are many photos of the residential areas of Madinatun Nabi and date graves dispersed throughout the blog, but Insha’Allah I will try to add more once the intense summer heat subsides a little. Unfortunately the date farms are not as numerous around Madinah as they were a few years ago. Farmers seeing more money in selling the land for real estate. Sad when one thinks how the entire city was surrounded with dense groves during the time of our Beloved Prophet SallAllahu alaihi wasallam. Maybe when you are here you can visit these places and see how things are for yourself.
    Wassalamu alaikum

    Dear Respected Sister and Resident of the Beloved Prophet City,

    May Allah bless you and grant you and your family the best of both worlds. May Allah quench your thirst direct from the blessed hands of Rasululah Sualalluhu Alaihe Wasalam at the pool of Kauthar.

    I have frequently drawn inspiration from your site and will continue to do so.

    We have started a website recently. The site is the result of a radio program we had the previlage of taking part in Ramadhaan. A slot dedicated to increase awareness among Muslims of the importance of Durood and inculcating sunnah in all aspects of our lives. The programs popularity encouraged us to continue something similar online and already have a subscription of over a thousand people in just a short space of time.

    I also ask for your duaa for its acceptance in the sight of Allah subuhanahu wa ta ala. Any advice would also be greatly appreciated.

    Its beyond description in words as inspiring it is to pay a visit to the Masjid-e-Nabawi, deep down from within, every tissue wishes to depart all the shimmers of this worldly glamor and seek to dwell for the rest of life in the blessed city of our beloved Prophet SAW/PBUH and perform each and every prayer of the remaining life in his(SAW/PBUH) masjid.
    The tranquillity one feels by just being in that city cannot be described in words.
    May Allah SWT grant our wish to dwell in the shadow of our beloved prophet SAW/PBUH, ameen.
    Spent a small portion of last 10 days in Madinat Un Nabawi and find it so very inspiring and enlightening, that I seek for more.
    This was my third visit in close to 4 decades yet the thirst is not close to quench.
    Look forward to and seek Allah SWT’s grant to do so again, please remember us in your dua’s and do submit our salams at the rawdah.
    Jazakallah khair for keeping in touch with the lovers of beloved prophet, at large.
    Regards.
    Your brother in Islam

    Dear Brother Saifullah,
    May Allah Ta’ala bless your endeavour with Tawfiq, Ameen. You have shared some of the best Nasheeds, Masha’Allah, and I love the sentiments expressed in the poetry.
    Dear Brother Akber,
    Alhumdulillah that you were among the blessed throng to be in this Radiant City, and for your frequent visits, Masha’Allah! May Allah Ta’ala continue to bring you back again and again, Ameen. Even living here the thirst is never quenched, and probably will never be until we are at the Kawthar with our Beloved SallAllahu alaihi wasallam, drinking from his hand! Ameen Ameen Ameen! The body shivers at such a thought. May we all be granted this by the grace and mercy of Allah Ta’ala, Ameen.
    Insha’Allah, one of these times I am led to the knowledge of how to get the comments to recognize Arabic font. I am sure it is so easy for all the clever ones out there ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have a request, there is defenitely a reason/means for yourself and family being bestowed with this blessing of living in Al Madina and May I ask you the same.

    Would request your dua for self and family (parents, siblings, wife, children, ustaad, extended family and all muslims) to have the fortune to live and die as good muslims and to live and die in either of the Harams and their immediate vicinity. I would request your dua in Rauda.

    Dear Brother Shamim, Ameen thumma Ameen to your Du’a and kind expressions. I have added your name and requests to the ‘list’. May blessings flood your hearts and lives. Indeed being here is a gift beyond comprehension, but it also comes with sacrifices and responsibilities, which makes one shudder re the consequences of lapse and lack of Adab and accumulation of sins…all very scary, and who knows when the earth shakes this Mubarak City and the hypocrites are expelled if one will be among that wretched lot, Ya Rabb, Ya Lateef, Ya Wadud. Have mercy upon us all and save us, Ameen.

    Dear Brother Mohamad,
    Several have asked for this very same request recently, and how I dislike not being able to comply, but truly at the moment I am saturated with a huge backlog of correspondence that overwhelms me and until I can clear this and then manage emailing more responsibly I am cautious to share my email. However if what you require is URGENT and/or will not take too much time do say so, and please forgive me. I began the blog to reach many at the same time, but it also has created numerous contacts that I am sadly unable to honour.

    Aye Aasiq-e-Rasool Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam please accept my salams, May Allah subhanawah ta’ala always bestow upon you & your family with great health and Healthy Imaan.

    By the grace of Allah subhanawah ta’ala i was directed to your website sometime back and since then i have visited all of your great learning post i.e from your old link(blogsome) to your latest Mubarak service offerings. When ever i am free either i am sinked in your post or in search of book which talks of Love Allah and His Rasool Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or i am at my home like website i.e http://ashraf786.proboards.com/index.cgi just to learn something good or to share something good which i am capable of.

    As the Mubarak words uttered by Habeeb-e-paak Hazrath Sayyidna Mohammad Mustafa Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam so blessed i find your insight for the things i.e

    Habeeb-e-paak Hazrath Sayyidna Mohammad Mustafa Sallallahi alayhi wa sallam said: Give your eyes a share of your divine service. They(Sahaba-e-karam Radhwanullahi ta’ala ajmaeen) asked: O prophet Sallallahi alayhu wa sallam of god, what is the share of eyes in divine service: He Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said: To look towards the Quran shareef to ponder over it, to seek advice and to take lessons from its wonderful matters.

    Starting from the Beautiful Ray of Light from every direction to sophisticated touch of new born and many more such things experiencing in the lines of Sunnah and Quran -e- paak is simply a greatest blessing upon you.

    I love the fact that you always run for the every glimpse of Madinah Munawwarah and so making it eternal memory for the life, i wish i had been such who is always in Zikr, Fikr, Yaad and Immense Shukr for Allah subhanawah ta’ala and His Rasool Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Please keep My Family, My forum members and me in all your supplications.

    I will be really really glad if i can have your presence over the forum everyday and i’ll be double happy to read ur post twice i.e here and there. I assure you that it is one of the blessed forum …come there you will meet some great Ghulame-Mustafa Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

    So awaiting for you didi…hope i can call

    Your Brother

    Merciful Warmth has started to enter the city of lovers and so is reflected in the surroundings. The month of Safar has shown the blossoming on respective plants with they beautiful flowers and so soon those flowers along with leaves will soon fall over their respective places to welcome the Month of Rabbi-ul-Noor as it gets the greatest joy of “Jashn-e-Aamad-e-Rasool sallallahu alayhi wa sallam” wahhh Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala ke ye makhlook kya khoob jante hain…. Sarkar-e-do alam Habeeb-e-paak Hazrath Sayyidna Mohammad Mustafa Salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa Sallam ki khabar mili ke nahi apne aapko Raho me becha diya…Subhan’Allah! Subhan’Allah! Subhan’Allah!, Rabi al Awwal the Month gets the Greatest Joy in the hearts of the Ashiq-e-Rasool Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and so such joy you can see in the plants. This is the exact time were all the leaves of the plants & trees go dry and branches of trees gently leave they older dry leaves and dress up with freshness of they newborn and gently move to pass the fresh air which seems like they fable the coming of His subhanawah ta’ala’s Noor sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with endless Mercy and Happiness and so the term spring arrives. This happens every year, plants are seen new, fresh and lovely starting in this season till the beginning of Rabi Al Akhir which can be understood by true lovers that everything is bestowed with a mercy is compulsory to express gratefulness to Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala.This is commendable.

    Khair, Jis ke dil ka darwazah Khullah Hain Allah subhanawah ta’ala ke Fazl-o-karam se osi ke Dil ke Sheher me Dakhil hota hain Aisa Behtareen jashn-e-zikr, jashn-e-shukr, jashn-e-Fikr aur jashn-e-yaad ka.

    Soon we shall see such joyful threads from all in the forum….am i right guys ??? or ::)(dondte reh jaoge) ….no matter we’ll continue on this as the Greatest Joy is soon to arrive.

    Dear Ghaznavi, Insha’Allah something can be arranged…when will you be here? Seems a day or two is extremely short to be trying to fit in many Ziyarahs in between Salat in Masjid Nabawi. Do visit the ‘virtual tour’ category as some pre-trip study and familiarize yourself with the maps posted there, by accessing these previous posts via http://almiskenah.blogsome.com/
    Insha’Allah once you say when you will be here I can supply further details, noting the above comment re private emails ๐Ÿ™‚

    Assalamu โ€˜Alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,
    Dear almiskenah,
    Hope this finds you in good health. Im ghaznavi’s fiance’ and writing to you on his behalf. Masha’Allah he reached Saudia yesterday and has performed his first Umrah. He told me to keep a check on his mails and i conveyed your message to him. I got to know about you through my sister’s teacher and friend Amna Ilahi, who went with you and visited the cave of Uhad. I know a day or 2 is very less but he is with a group. He wants to spend most of his time in Masjid e Nabwi but also wants a short trip to Ziarahs n since ive told him about that cave he really wants to visit it:)..I hope thats possible:)…Please if u dont mind can you give your Cell number so that he can contact you directly and sort something out with you:)…He will most probably leave for Madina on 10th, will stay there on 11th n will leave on the 12th afternoon. This is not confimed yet and thats why i want him to be in contact with you directly if its convenient for you:)
    I will be very grateful:)
    If you email me your Number please email it on the mentioned email address
    JazaakAllah:)

    I too would like to be incorporating gems from the Shukukh here, but not being a male nor having enough Arabic limits the possibility. Plus one needs to realize the ‘direction’ that most scholars here take. I personally find that many who make regular visits from other countries are inspiring and instill a great love, and respect for our Blessed and Noble Resident SallAllahu alaihi wasallam. Apologies…maybe one day more can be offered.

    I just stumbled across your site and want to express gratitude from the bottom of my heart for having alighted my heart with newfound love for Madinah and all that it contains. Please pray for this needy one as the last time I was in the holy cities was when I was about four. The need to refresh myself spiritually is great. And the desire to be in close proximity to our beloved Rasulullah (S) is even greater. Please please please convey my salam to him, which I hope Allah will put somehow in your heart because I know the list of people requesting you to convey their salams must be long and filled with people more pious than I can ever be. And please, can you remember to make du’a that this needy one will till the last moment be victorious in following each and every sunnah and will always always always love Rasulullah (S), so much so that this love will allow for her to be with him on the Day of Judgment.

    JazakAllah Sister
    I already feel great love for you as a resident of Madinah. InshAllah I pray that just as Allah azza wa jal has allowed you to be in close proximity to Rasulullah (S), that He allow you to be in even closer proximity to Rasulullah (S) on the Day of Judgment.

    I literally jumped with joy when I saw that my name was added to “the list”. Alhamdulillahi rabbil a’alamin.

    I don’t remember anything from Madinah. But I do remember the great house of Allah and how it created a lasting impression on me. I remember praying in front of it. Aaah I need to come back there! InshAllah if not able to meet in this lifetime, may Allah allow us to meet in His garden indeed. I look forward to getting to know you there!
    You’re my friend now, okay? So you have to make du’a that I complete my hifz (which I’m currently doing alhamdulillah) with ease and become a member of the household of Allah. Oh yes, and one more request. My teacher wanted to be added to “the list” as well. Her name is Qurat ul Ayn. So if you can please add her name, I’d be greatly obliged.

    I found this nasheed and I absolutely love it. The lyrics are amazing. Thought I’d share it with you:

    Beloved Nabi by Talib al-Habib

    chorus
    Salla Allahu `ala Ta Ha
    Allahuma salli `ala nabiyyina habibina

    Beloved Nabi, my heart yearns to see
    The laughter that dances in your eyes.
    Heavy lay the burden of my grief
    Until you came and gave me strength again
    Beloved Nabi

    Silently, the thought of you appears
    Your love is like the touch of spring to me
    And joyfully, my blossom-soul awakes
    To remembrance that brings tranquillity
    Beloved Nabi

    Cord of moonlight, sunlight entwined
    Cord of love, our lovesbond eternal.
    Fire of yearning, light of hope
    Cord of faith that binds me to you.

    Light of my eyes, fragrance of my soul
    I send my love on angel wings to you
    Hear its cry, borne upon the wind
    Calling you to lead me through the night
    Beloved Nabi

    So fear not, my heart, at times when you feel
    Sorrowful and lonely in the cold
    Soothe your pain, for through his love you’ll find
    The solace and the comfort that you seek
    Beloved Nabi.

    Oh Allah! Send your blessings upon
    Our Master Muhammad, our guide, our beloved
    In every heartbeat, in every breath and sigh
    Every teardrop shed
    By those who yearn for the light of his beauty
    Who pass days and nights seeking his company
    From creation’s dawn, every moment, every hour
    Until the rising of the Last Day will come

    Beloved Nabi, how long will it be
    Until I see the sunrise in your eyes?

    (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam)

    I am a keen follower of your blog and a great fan of it! Jazaakillah khair for the enlightenment through your words and pictures. This blog is truly a treasure. InshaAllah I shall be going for umrah soon and would like to ask if you recommend any books that will help in preparing for this spiritual journey. May Allah allow us to benefit from you.

    Wa ‘alaikumus Salam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,
    Dearest ‘Sister’,
    JazakiLlahu khaira for your kind supportive words, Alhumdulillah you find benefit here. Insha’Allah keep making Du’a for this to continue ๐Ÿ™‚
    Masha’Allah for your invite, may every step be taking you closer and closer to Allah Ta’ala and His Habib SallAllahu alaihi wasallam and purify your heart and soul, Ameen.
    I have not used an Umrah book as such for many years, so not really up with all that is available, however meeting many and seeing what they have used then maybe you could check the spiral bound ‘Hajj and Umrah Made Easy’…it is on a cord that you wear around your neck so is available throughout the Umrah with Du’a for each stage as well as very clear and concise diagrams. It is in this very extensive list:
    http://www.islamicgoodsdirect.co.uk/index.php/cPath/1_22
    These are popular ones also:
    http://liwajhillah.co.uk/browse.html#EMSHPH001
    For the spiritual preparation I recommend the following. It is based on Hajj but is very inspiring:
    http://www.hubooks.com/Hajj/From-The-Two-Holy-Sanctuaries
    And this by Arif Billah Hazrat Maulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Sahab Damat Barkatuhum…which you can download…is a must read, Masha’Allah:
    http://www.khanqah.org/books/show/the-etiquettes-of-visiting-the-haramain-sharifain. Maybe others reading this can offer other suggestions, Insha’Allah,

    Can you please enable “share” script to each of your blog post i.e. share on Facebook or your blog or e-mail to friend, coz it not just helps us in reading good but also makes everyone of us to share good. Hope you agree with me…..in fact many of your near and dear would have suggested you the same.

    May the Prophet, salla Llahu `alayhi wa sallam, testify to your being among those that love him and long for him. Salla Llahu `alayhi wa sallam.

    On a different note, a quick question: I came across a Sheikh Amudi (of Bakri lineage, radiya Llahu `anh). Do you know anything about him? He’s of Hadrami origin and seems to be well-known and loved in Madinah, ma sha’a Llah.

It’s owned by a very humble and righteous man, Shaykh Maher. His shop, Medine Hurmacisi, sells one of the freshest and most delicious Ajwa dates that I’ve ever tasted!

    Shaykh Maher is a long-time resident of Madina, and usually accompanies Shaykh Hamza during the Sacred Caravan’s Umrah trip.

    If you get a chance, please do go there. Here are the contact numbers: 0503302836/0500395306/0503393279

    I am not aware of any photo of the inner dome of the Mubarak Hujrah and my limited knowledge is that the majority if relics were transported to safety by the Turkish at the fall of the Ottoman times, and now housed in Topkapi Palace in Istanbul…you can search for this and see details of the relics there, Insha’Allah. Also the beautiful book Sacred Trusts
    http://www.thesacredtrusts.com/
    details the Mubarak exhibits.
    Allahu ‘Alum to the whereabouts of certain items…there seems to be many accounts that are passed around, but only Allah Knows Best. I heard from a respectful Imam just a few weeks back that the body of Abdullah ibn Abdul Muttalib was moved to jannatul Baqi from the western courtyard area when they were working on the King Fahd extensions…once again Allahu ‘Alum.

    Salaams Sister,
    I saw your posts on skyscraper city and found your website [this one] and have been truly awestruck by the content, the amazing pics and the beautiful writing to go with them.
    I was wondering as to your background, as your english and the writing language being so poetic and of very high quality, makes we wonder that you must have some good high quality education, perhaps a degree in english language or literature. Where do you originate from ? Some pics under your Eid blog I think, shows a park which looks english. Just curious, that is all.
    I love your posts on the simple life of the Madeenah suburbs, away from the commercialised centre, and was also struck by the Madressa where young children are taught.
    I will be in the blessed city of our Beloved Prophet SAW next week sunday for 10 days, and then onto Makkah, with my wife and daughter, and your articles and pics have been a great inspiration as a prep for this visit.
    May Allah bless you and reward you. Keep up the great work.
    Wasaalaam.

    Wa ‘alaikumus Salam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,
    Dear Abu Arifa and family,
    May Allah Ta’ala accept this humble effort from me and make us all among those who are graced with sound hearts and souls. JazakumuLlahu khaira for your exceptionally kind sentiments, but truly whatever goodness may fly from this space is nothing compared to the profound goodness and beauty of the one SallAllahu alaihi wasallam being written about.
    Alhumdulillah for your upcoming visit. Yes there is a wealth of information shared over the past almost eight years, especially if you go to the ‘virtual tours’ category and make decisions as to what Zirayahs you may want to include in your stay. Though often I do emphasize the supreme bliss of remaining in and around our Beloved SallAllahu alaihi wasallam’s residence. Insha’Allah you do make the time to visit the Darul Madinah Museum too, as well as the exhibitions on the Seerah on the western side of the courtyard and the one behind Masjid Quba.
    I am Australian born and yes there is an academic background in the Eng Lit and the creative arts ๐Ÿ™‚ but oh so long ago in my Jahaliyyah times ๐Ÿ™‚
    May your every step and breath be imbued with the Noor and Barakah of our hallowed places, Ameen
    BarakAllahu fikum
    Wassalamu alaikum

    Dear Sister,
    Jazakallahu khayrun for your reply. Alhumdolillah this will be our 7th visit, so have done the usual round of ziyarahs a few times, and I agree the tranquility and spirituality around our Beloved Prophet SAW’s masjid and abode cannot be matched elsewhere, however, this time I will be hoping to see some sites not previously visited, and the exhibitions you mention will be among those. Also the Saqeefa Bani Sadait (hope I’ve spelt that right) which I didn’t know was so close to where we will be staying i.A.
    I pray Allah accepts our journey and make it a means to increasing the love in our hearts for our Beloved Prophet SAW, so we can truly live our lives on the Sunnah, and be blessed with closeness to our Prophet SAW in the hereafter.
    Regarding your education etc in what you call jahaliyah, at least you are using skills gained then to inspire others on the straight path, and had you not attained those skills, we would not have gained so much. Allah works in mysterious ways.
    Jazakallah for your duas as well, again, May Allah reward you. By the way I have read about this ‘list’ if it’s what I think, perhaps our family could be included on it too !
    Wassalaam.

      Ameen thumma Ameen to you heartfelt Du’as…Masha’Allah for so many invites, Insha’Allah there are many many more.
      Insha’Allah you will find Saqeefa, Banu Sa’edah, a pleasant haven where thoughts can turn to all that it means for us, reflecting on the many stories from there. I was there the other day, and Insha’Allah intend to go again tomorrow as it truly is like a small hideaway and not many seem to visit there. The thought that one day it may disappear due to the expansion is heartbreaking to say the least. There is already a drilling machine at the front fence working away. I feel there should be a planned ‘sit in’…though fear one may end up in a jail sit in the way things are here ๐Ÿ™‚ The intention is to add a post after tomorrows visit. Would love for you to share some of your experiences here when you have time…maybe you and your family could write a guest blog post? Insha’Allah.

        Salaams Dear Sister. We arrived in the beautiful city of our beloved Prophet on Sunday 26th May. What an experience our 10 days were. Very different to the hustle bustle of our last trip in Ramadan 2 years ago. On our 4th day we received the sad news of the passing of my dear wife’s father, who we had said goodbye, unknown to us, for the last time. It was a very traumatic fews days, as his passing was so sudden, we heard he was not well in the morning, and when i rang my daughter in the evening, she said ‘nana just passed away’. He was 85 and was weak and ill with prostrate cancer, but it was a bolt from the blue, and obviously my dear Wife, having missed the funeral etc felt she missed her last goodbye. Her strength came from being in the presence of our beloved Prophet and her sanctuary was His mosque. Alhumdolillah, this took her over the precipice and she was able to reach the other side with prayers and aamaal of esaale thawaab for her father. She later in Makkah saw him in a dream in good spirits. May Allah elevate his status in Jannat.
        As for our trip, following those few days we were able to visit the saqeefah, even my wife and daughter were amazed that such a pleasant place of serenity was so close and we had missed it on our previous trips.
        We also visited the exhibition, which was also excellent, and my daughter took plenty of pictures (until she was politely shown the NO PHOTOGRAPHY sign).
        Another brilliant chapter in our book, although tinged with sadness.
        Insha Allah we pray Allah accepts our trip, and returns us time and time again.
        Keep up the good work.
        Wassalaam.

          Inna liLlahi wa inna ilaihi rajeoon.
          Alhumdulillah for the solace you gained whilst being in the radiance of this City of Light. May your dear father in law be resting in the bliss of gardens of delight and surrounded by fragrances unknown to us earthly beings, Ameen.
          Alhumdulillah you were able to visit Saqeefa. Just the other day I was showing it to a friend who has lived here for decades but never knew of its existence! I still cringe at the thought of it being desecrated…lets see what unfolds when they begin work on the western side for the expansion.
          LOL to them saying about no photography…so many go and take photos there. Sometimes I think it is a bored security guard merely breaking his boredom and keeping awake by talking ๐Ÿ™‚

The questions are mainly about the day to day lifestyle of an expat. If it would be possible, could you also send some photographs that we can use?
    Of course, if you accept, we can add a link to your blog or some of your website.

      Yes I am a niqabi Alhumdulillah. Have been for decades and in whatever country…Muslim and non I have been in. I admire your considering but I am not sure your circumstances? Are you still in school? How is it viewed where you are residing? May Allah Ta’ala assist you in your decision. Once it hit my heart there were no second thoughts and that was in Australia but times are different now. Plus I am already a ‘grannie age’ and I think this has helped with dispelling some of the negative comments over the years. Some scholars have been saying not to wear it in non-Muslim lands now…but I will always wear it regardless as Allah Ta’ala is the Greatest Protector, Alhumdulillah.

      dear Brother Syed Khalid,
      Insha’Allah while the Haramain is embedded in your heart then Allah Ta’ala surely sees this and replies in ways you will never dream of. So many may physically be in Haram Sharif but their hearts are empty of the grandeur. Insha’Allah you continue to feel such a presence in your heart, And may Allah Ta’ala keep strengthening this by the second, Ameen.
      Wassalamu alaikum

    Hello from England!

    Jazakallah Khayr for this website. You have been an absolute inspiration and have inspired me to start a project to locate the Holy sites in the Haramain. So far I have 70+ locations and I would appreciate if you assisted me in this endeavour to preserve the history and memory of these Mubarak locations.

    Iโ€™ve noticed you have a extensive library (Ma Sha Allah ๐Ÿ™‚ and was wondering if you have Dr. Alkadiโ€™s book on this subject. From what I have read he has GPS coordinates for all the sites which would definitely make my mission easier!

    Once again, Jazakallah Khayr for this site. You should have my email address InShaAllah, if you drop me a message I would like to send you a Google Earth Map with the locations I have saved so far.

      Assalamu alaikum Miskeen,
      I was very interested to read your comment about the gpd locations in Madinah al Munawarah. I am a small publisher in the UK and also the official distributor of Dr Al Kadi’s Hijrah book. Dr al Kadi will soon be developing his website to include gps locations of the hijrah route.

      Please get in touch with me through my website beaconbooks.net as i would love to learn more about your work as it may have an impact on one of my future publishing projects.

    Dear Sister Noor Asslamu aliakum,
    I have recently subscribed to your mailing list and was very saddened to learn the news that you will be leaving the Shiny City soon.

    This year insha Allah, I have made an intention to go on hajj and was hoping to meet you to discuss a particular publishing idea i have. I run a small publishing company by the name of beaconbooks.net and would love to correspond with you on this.

    I know you have a busy and stressful time ahead of you and my prayers are with you and your family. I look forward to hearing from you when you are ready.

      Indeed emotions and the longing for the Beloved Subhanahu wa Ta’ala and His Most Beloved SallAllahu alaihi wasallam stir such passion in the heart. May these feelings be the means of gaining a more intimate proximity to Both, Ameen, and led us to be with them in Jannah, Ameen.
