Visiting The Prophet’s Mosque (Al Masjid Al Nabawi)

Posted On: 2018-12-22 14:39:49


- Ablution is compulsory prior to prayers & visits

- .It is Sunnah to go to Madinah, at any convenient time, before or after the Umrah, with the intention of visiting the Prophet’s mosque & praying in it. Prayers performed in this mosque are rewarded a thousand fold over prayers observed in any other mosques, with the exception of the Sacred Mosque, according to the Hadith of the Prophet (peace be upon him).

- When you enter the Prophet’s mosque, enter with your right foot first, saying “In the name of Allah (God), the most gracious & the most merciful”, invoking blessings upon the Prophet (peace be upon him) & ask Allah (God) to open the doors of his mercy to you. 

- Perform the prayer (two units) of the mosque’s greetings. 

-  It is preferable to have this prayer in the area between the Prophet’s grave & his pulpit (Al Rawda). Otherwise, you can pray in any place in the mosque.

- Go to the tomb of the Prophet (peace be upon him), stand in front of it, uttering reverently in a low voice: “Peace be upon you & may Allah (God) shower you with His mercy & blessings. May Allah (God) reward you, on behalf of your people, with the best of rewards”.

- Head towards the grave of Abu Bakr & say: “Peace be upon you Abu Bakr, the successor of Allah (God)’s Prophet (peace be upon him) and may Allah (God) shower you with His mercy & blessings. May Allah (God) be pleased with you & may He reward you, on behalf of Mohamed’s people, with good rewards”.

- Head towards the grave of Omar Ibn El Khatab & say: “Peace be upon you Omar, the Commander of The Faithful & may Allah (God) shower you with His mercy & blessings. May Allah (God) be pleased with you & may He reward you, on behalf of Mohamed’s people, with good rewards”.

- It is Sunnah to visit the Quba mosque & pray in it as the Prophet (peace be upon him) did.

-  It is Sunnah to visit the graveyard of Al Baqi, Osman & Hamza (May Allah be pleased with them) & the martyrs of the Uhud battle, to greet them & to pray for them, where you say: “Peace be upon you, believers & Muslims, and we will Insha’Allah join you. We ask Allah (God) to grant wellness to all of us”. 

It should be noted that:

-  There is no connection between the visit of the Prophet’s mosque & the Hajj performance. If you perform Hajj without visiting the Prophet’s mosque, your Hajj is correct.

-  There is neither Ihram nor related sayings (Talbiyah) for visiting the Prophet’s mosque.
