Al-Masjid an-Nabawi

Reviewed By TheDivaLife - Dubai, United Arab Emirates

I always heard from people, that you’ll fall in love it’s full of peace, until I experienced it, I was literally going again and again on my last day just to see it for last time, I fell in love with the peace I got there, leaving that place was like leaving your loved one. I cried like a child,
Some tips for ladies and gents
For ladies the entrance inside is gate 25, 29 and 13. If you would like to see Roza Rasool (PBUH) take 25th or 29th gate, if you would like to offer Nawafil in Riaz Al Jannah, the best time is in the morning as isha time is pretty busy I would recommend go at 07:00 go further until the end and then wait for your turn,
What you can also do to buy dates or sweets, once you enter the Mosque give it to people they will happily accept it from you, it’s great feeling to see people how they accept your gifts
Please remember in your prayers and say my Salam to my beloved Mohammed (PBUH)

Quba Mosque

Reviewed By F S - Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The evidence for visiting the Mosque of Quba’ is the hadeeth narrated in al-Saheehayn from Ibn ‘Umar (may Allaah be pleased with him) who said: “The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) used to come to Quba’ riding and walking.” According to another report: “and he would pray two rak’ahs there.” (narrated by al-Bukhaari and Muslim). The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) also said, “Whoever purifies himself in his house then comes to the mosque of Quba’ and prays there, he will have a reward like that for ‘Umrah.” (Narrated by Ahmad, al-Nasaa’i, Ibn Maajah and al-Haakim. Al-Haakim classed it as saheeh and al-Dhahabi agreed with him. Also classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, 6154)

Masjid al-Qiblatain

Reviewed By Riz24 - London, United Kingdom

There are a number of places throughout Madinah which have great historical significance. This masjid is where the congregation turned direction of prayer from Jerusalem to Makkah mid-prayer on hearing the Revelation regards the change of direction.
Such places give a huge sense of closeness to what happened then and are inspirational.
The masjid itself tends to be busy as people visit it and pray there in general.

Madain Saleh Tombs

Reviewed By isagarcas - Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt

Excellent place to visit if you are in Saudi. The ride from Madinah takes about 3 hours and from Jeddah around 7. The site for the moment does not have many visitors and we had it basically for ourselves. We took a guide from Al Ula and he explained almost every detail of the site. If you go by yourself you will miss many spots, so take the guide. The visit takes roughly 4 hours.
Contact for the guide is [email protected] You can leave the car in Al ULA and he will drive you in his vehicle uness you are too many.

Reviewed By Fatimai - capetown

The seven mosques are actually six, originally Masjid Qiblatayn was part of the group of seven but is now completely on its own, with the latter being extended to a rather big complex which is frequented by pilgrims from all over the world for its historical significance, whereas the smaller six mosques are not visited by all.
