Madinah: Masjid-e-Nabwi The City of Madinah Aerial view of the city of Madinah Madinah Munawarrah (“the enlightened city”) ranks as the second most holiest place in Islam after Makkah. It is the city that gave refuge to the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) and the early Muslims upon their migration from Makkah and where lies the burial place of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him). The city of Madinah was originally known as Yathrib, an oasis city dating as far back as the 6th century BCE. During the war between Jews and Romans in the third century CE, many Jews fled Jerusalem and migrated to their ancestral place of Yathrib (present Madinah). Nero sent a massive Roman force under Petra Lenidas to Madinah to massacre the Jews in 213 CE. A community survived and by the time the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) had migrated there was a large Jewish presence around the city. The Jews were eagerly waiting for the arrival of a prophet who, according to their scriptures, would appear in Madinah. They used to taunt the local Arabs that when he did arrive, according to their prophesies, the Jews would destroy the pagans as the ancient people of Aad and Thamud had been destroyed for their idolatry. However, when they realized that the final prophet was chosen among the Arabs rather than from the Jews their pride got the better of them and they rejected him even though as the Quran mentions (in 2:146) they recognized him as they recognize their sons. In spite of this, there were some Jews who embraced Islam, most notably Hussain bin Salam, one of their most learned Rabbis. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) changed his name to Abdullah bin Salam. View of the City of Madinah at night View of the City of Madinah at night The city of Madinah was not unfamiliar to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) when he emigrated there. His father Abdullah was buried there and when he was six years old he had travelled with his mother Aminah and their devoted slave girl Barakah (later to be known as Umme Ayman). In later life he recounted how he had learned to swim in a pool which belonged to his kinsmen with whom they had stayed, and how the boys taught him to fly a kite. However, not long after they had set out for the return journey his mother fell very ill, and died a few days later at Abwa, not far from Yathrib where she was buried. Barakah did what she could to console the boy, now doubly an orphan and brought him back to Makkah. About a year before the migration, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) had dispatched Mus’ab bin Umair (may Allah be pleased with him) on a mission to propagate Islam (Tableegh) to the people of Madinah. Many of the Ansar became Muslims at his hands. Madinah is 210 miles (340 km) north of Makkah. At the time of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him), Madinah was approximately the size of the present masjid and the surrounding white tiled area. Narrated Anas (may Allah be pleased with him): Whenever the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) returned from a journey and observed the walls of Madinah, he would make his mount go fast, and if he was on an animal (i.e. a horse), he would make it gallop because of his love for Madinah [Bukhari]. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him): “For the believer, Madinah is the best place. If only they could understand it’s virtue fully, they would never leave it, and whoever departs from Madinah, having become disenchanted with it, Allah will send someone better to replace him. And whoever bears patiently the ordeals of Madinah, for him shall I be an intercessor(or witness) on the Day of Qiyamah.” [Muslim] It is narrated by Aisha (may Allah be pleased with her): When we came to Madinah, it was an unhealthy, uncongenial place. Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him) fell sick and Bilal (may Allah be pleased with him) also fell sick; and when Allah’s Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) saw the illness of his Companions he said: “O Allah, make Madinah as beloved to us as you made Makkah beloved or more than that; make it conducive to health, and bless us in its sa’ and mudd’ (two standards of weight and measurement) and transfer its fever to Juhfa.” [Bukhari] It is stated in another hadith: “There will be no town which Ad-Dajjal (the anti-Christ) will not enter except Makkah and Madinah, and there will be no entrance (road) but the angels will be standing in rows guarding it against him, and then Madinah will shake with its inhabitants thrice and Allah will expel all the nonbelievers and the hypocrites from it.” [Bukhari] Narrated Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him): The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) said, “Verily, Belief returns and goes back to Madinah as a snake returns and goes back to its hole (when in danger).” [Bukhari]
The Holy City of Makkah The Holy City of Makkah, which lies inland 73 kilometers east of Jiddah, is the place where the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, was born - the place where God's message was first revealed to him and the city to which he returned after the migration to Madinah in 622 AD. Makkah is the holiest city on earth to Muslims. Five times each day, the world's one billion Muslims, wherever they may be, turn to the Holy City of Makkah to pray. And at least once in their lives, all Muslims who are not prevented by personal circumstance perform the Hajj, the pilgrimage to Makkah. Thus each year the Holy City of Makkah is host to some two million hajjis (pilgrims) from all over the world. The Holy Mosque in Makkah houses the Ka'aba, in the corner of which is set the Black Stone which marks the starting point for the seven circumambulations of the Holy Mosque which every hajji must complete. The Holy City is served by the seaport and international airport of Jiddah.
Ramadan is a month which multiplies the reward of a single action to seventy times. If a Muslim offers one obligation (fard) then he/she will be rewarded seventy times of the actual deed. So, one can imagine the reward of performing one Sunnah or Nafl act performed during the holy month of Ramadan. Likewise, performing Umrah during Ramadan not only brings spiritual and mental relief but also brings great rewards in terms of blessings and acceptance by Allah. The significance of performing Umrah in Ramadan is a crux of Hadith of Prophet (S.A.W.W.): Ibn `Abbâs narrates that once Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W) inquired a woman from Madinah: “What prevented you from embarking on the Hajj pilgrimage with us?” She replied: “We had two camels out of which my husband and child took one and left the other for the rest of us to ride on.” Muhammad (S.A.W.W) then told her: “When the month of Ramadan arrives, go for ‘Umrah, because `Umrah in Ramadan is like accompanying me on Hajj.” [Sahîh al-Bukhârî (1764)]” Blessings during Ramadan Although performing Umrah in Ramadan is not an obligation, but since it accompanies countless blessings, no one would want to miss this spiritual opportunity. Apart from these countless blessings, a person’s emphasis remains on worship and the spirit of remembering and asking forgiveness is truly revealed throughout the journey. It gives an amazing sight to see millions and millions of Muslims from different regions of the world, the beloved guests of Allah sitting together breaking their fasts. The first thing that would come to a mind is benevolence. How amazing that experience would be to break one’s fast with people from different regions of the world, whom you have not met before and sharing aftaar together. It represents the core essence of Muslim brotherhood and highlights the harmony amongst Muslim Ummah (nation). An unforgettable experience Moreover, the sweet taste of performing Umrah in Ramadan is further aggravated during daily prayers. Particularly during Taraweeh, when the beautiful Masjid-e-Haram would be as bright and sparkling as during day time with masses equivalent to those present during Hajj. Likewise, the experience becomes further spiritual once you get to know that everyone is striving for the same journey ‘to seek forgiveness and blessings of Allah’. With everyday passing, the journey becomes more and more spiritual and worth-remembering. For many it is the Ramadan of a lifetime We care for you Along with these spiritual rewards, there are some problems which are part and parcel of almost every journey. People are often confronted with travelling issues such as passport, visa processes, flights bookings, hotel accommodations and many others. Likewise, many people lack financial means to embark on this Holy journey and therefore they lag behind in fulfilling their dream of visiting the Holy Kaaba and Madinah. For this reason, we care for you and we provide cheap umrah packages to assure our Muslim brothers and sisters to perform their prestigious journey. Now, dream of every Muslim can become true.
What a great achievement it would be for one of us to accompany Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) on Hajj! Think of standing beside him on the Plain of `Arafah. Imagine spending the night in his encampment in Muzdalifah and then getting up the next morning to go with him to Minâ. What would it be like to perform tawâf and sa`y alongside him. The apparent meaning of the hadîth is that our performing `umrah in Ramadan is really that significant. The ruling for `umrah in general & for `umrah in Ramadan We must understand that going for `umrah in Ramadan is Sunnah. It is not an obligation and should not be treated as one. Indeed, the majority of scholars hold the opinion that performing `umrah in one’s lifetime is not a religious obligation at all. This is the view of the Hanafî and Mâlikî schools of though. It is also one of the views expressed by Ahmad b. Hanbal. Al-Shâfî also one time held this view, and it seems to have been his older opinion, The official position of the Shâfi`î school of law is that `umrah is obligatory upon a Muslim, just like Hajj, once in a lifetime. The stronger of the two opinions – and Allah knows best – is that `umrah is not an obligation. The Qur’ân clearly mentions the obligation of the Hajj without once indicating anything similar for `umrah. The Prophet (peace be upon him) further emphasized this by saying: “O people! Allah has enjoined the Hajj upon you, so go for Hajj.” [Sahîh Muslim (1337)] And by saying: “Islam is built upon five things: the testimony that there is no God but Allah and that Muhammad is His servant and Messenger, the establishment of prayer, the payment of Zakâh, the pilgrimage to the House, and the fast during the month of Ramadan.” [Sahîh al-Bukhârî (8) and Sahîh Muslim (16)] We also have where a man from central Arabia with disheveled hair approached the Prophet (peace be upon him) and asked him about Islam. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said to him: “There are five prayers to be offered in the day and the night.” The man asked: “Do I have to offer any others?” The Prophet (peace be upon him) replied: “No, unless you do so voluntarily.” Then he continued: “You must fast the month of Ramadan.” The man asked: “Do I have to offer any other fasts?” The Prophet (peace be upon him) replied: “No, unless you do so voluntarily.” Then the Prophet (peace be upon him) informed him about Zakâh, and he asked: “Do I have to pay anything else?” The Prophet (peace be upon him) replied: “No, unless you do so voluntarily.” The man then turned away saying: “By Allah, I will do nothing extra for these things nor do any less than I have to.” At this, Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) remarked: “He will attain success if he proves truthful.” [Sâhîh al-Bukhârî (46) and Sâhîh Muslim (11)] As for specific hadîth on the topic of the ruling of `umrah, there are some which indicate that it is obligatory and others that indicate it is not obligatory. However, all of these hadîth have some weakness that can be levied against them. Therefore, we say on the strength of the general evidence that `umrah is a Sunnah. It is not an obligation. Some practical considerations It should make us truly happy to see how many Muslims converge on Mecca every year in Ramadan to perform `umrah. However, there are a few matters that we need to consider, so that the best possible effects of observing this Sunnah can be realized. Some people neglect their families to go on `umrah in Ramadan. This is a serious problem, because the blessed month of Ramadan is a time for people to show greater concern for their families. It is especially bad for parents to neglect their children during this month. Unfortunately this is exactly what a lot of parents do. They leave their children behind – because those children are in school – and abandon them for at least half of Ramadan. The children spend these precious days without anyone to look after them and guide them. Younger children miss out on essential aspects of their upbringing. Older children may even fall into sin. There is another mistake parents make regarding their children. Some parents take their children along with them to Mecca. Then, the father decides to spend his time in seclusion at the Sacred Mosque, leaving his children to languish in the hotel. This is a serious concern. Children who are left to their own devices in a strange environment can easily get into trouble. How often we see adolescents and young adults behaving badly in Mecca during this sacred month, since they see the whole thing as a festive holiday. They act as they please while their parents spend their time in worship – but neglect their parental responsibilities. It is, without doubt, a good thing for parents to take their children to Mecca. It can be a wonderful, faith-inspiring experience. However, this requires from the parents to be responsible and conscious of their duties to their children. Parents who are unable to manage their children should either stay in their homes and spend a fulfilling Ramadan with their families, or if they go to Mecca, make sure to do everything as a family and leave out i`tikâf. What is the point of parents seeking extra reward from their personal devotions while incurring sin due to their neglect of those whom Allah has made them responsible for? And Allah knows best.
