Al Masjid an Nabawi

Al-Masjid an-Nabawī, known in English as The Prophet’s Mosque, and also known as Al Haram, Al Haram Al Madani and Al Haram Al Nabawi by locals, is a mosque built by the last prophet Muhammad SWS in the city of Medina in the Al Madinah Province of Saudi Arabia. It was the second mosque built by prophet Muhammad in Madinah, after Masjid Quba’a, and is now one of the largest mosques in the world.

Masjed Quba

The Quba Mosque is a mosque located on the outskirts of Medina, Saudi Arabia. Initially, the mosque was built 6 kilometres off Medina in the village of Quba, before Medina expanded to include this village. Depending on whether the Mosque of the Companions in the Eritrean city of Massawa is older or not, it may be the first mosque in the world that dates to the lifetime of the Nabi Muhammad SWS

Uhud Mountain

Mount Uhud is a mountain north of Medina, Saudi Arabia. It is 1,077 m high and 7.5 km long. It was the site of the second battle between Muslim and unbelievers. The Battle of Uhud was fought on 19 March, 625 CE, between a force from the small Muslim community of Medina, in what is now north-western Arabia, and a force from Makkah.

Masjid al-Haram

The Great Mosque of Makkah, also known as al-Masjid al-Ḥarām, is a mosque that surrounds the Kaaba in Makkah, in the Makkah Province of Saudi Arabia. It is a site of pilgrimage in the Hajj, which every Muslim must do at least once in their lives if able, and is also the main phase for the Umrah, the lesser pilgrimage that can be undertaken any time of the year.

Safa and Marwa

Safa and Marwa are two small hills, connected to the larger Abu Qubais and Qaiqan mountains, respectively, in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, now made part of the Masjid al-Haram. Muslims travel back and forth between them seven times in what is known as Sa’ee ritual pilgrimages of Ḥajj and Umrah. Muslims walk between the two mountains.

Mount Arafat

Mount Arafat, also known by its Arabic name Jabal Arafat, and by its other Arabic name, Jabal ar-Rahmah, is a granodiorite hill about 20 km southeast of Makkah in the Makkah Province of Saudi Arabia. According to Islamic traditions, the hill is the place where the Prophet Muhammad stood and delivered the Farewell Sermon, also known as the Khutbat al-Wada’, to his companions who had accompanied him for the Hajj towards the end of his life.
