      Jannat ul-Baqi. Jannat ul-Baqi (جنة البقيع) is a cemetery in Medina, adjacent to Masjid an-Nabawi. It contains many of  Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) relatives and companions. On1 May 1925, mausoleums in Jannat ul-Baqi’ were demolished by King Ibn Saud of Saudi Arabia despite protests by the international Islamic community.

      Masjid al-Quba. The Quba Mosque (Masjid al-Quba (مسجد قباء) or Quba’ Masjid) in Medina, is the oldest mosque in the world. Its first stones were positioned by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) on his emigration from Mecca to Medina and the mosque was completed by his companions. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) used to go there every Saturday and offer a two rak’ah prayer. He advised others to do the same, saying, “Whoever makes ablutions at home and then goes and prays in the Mosque of Quba, he will have a reward like that of an ‘Umrah.” This hadith is reported by Ahmad ibn Hanbal, Al-Nasa’i, Ibn Majah and Hakim al-Nishaburi.

      Masjid al-Qiblatain, Madina. Masjid al-Qiblatain (المسجد القبلتین) (Mosque of the two Qiblas) is a mosque in Medina in which Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), while leading the prayer was commanded by Allah to change the direction of prayer (qibla) from Jerusalem to Mecca. Thus it uniquely contained two prayer niches (mihrabs). Recently the mosque was renovated, removing the old prayer niche facing Jerusalem and leaving the one facing Mecca. The Qiblatain Mosque is among the three earliest mosques in Islam’s history, along with Quba Mosque and Masjid an-Nabawi.

      Masjid Al Ghamama, Madina. Masjid Al Ghamama (مسجد الغمامة) is located next to the Masjid an Nabawi in Madina.The word `ghamam` in Arabic means clouds. This mosque has been given this name because it is the place where the Prophet (PBUH) prayed for rainfall after which it rained profusely.This mosque was built on the place where Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) used to perform Salat Al-Eid and Salat Al-Istesqa’a for a long time.

      Ghazwa-e-Badr was Fought HereThe Ghazwa-e-Badr (Battle of Badr) was fought on 17 Ramadan, 2 AH (13 March, 624 AD) at the wells of Badr, 80 miles (130 km) southwest of Medina. It was fought between the Muslims and pagans of Mecca whose strength was three times larger than the poorly equipped Muslim Army. It was a decisive victory for Muslims with divine help. This battle is also mentioned in the Quran.The Qur’an describes the force of the Muslim attack in many verses, which refer to thousands of angels descending from Heaven at Badr to terrify the Quraish.  It proved a milestone in Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) struggle with his adversaries and paved a way for spread of Islam in the Arabian peninsula.

      Site of Ghazwah UhudThe Battle of Uhud (Gazwah Uhud) was fought on 03 Shawwal, 3 AH (March 19, 625 .D) on the slopes and plains of Mount Uhud (Height: 1,077 m, 3,533 ft) between Muslims of Medina, led by prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.), and a force of Meccans led by Abu Sufyan ibn Harb. The Meccans wanted to avenge their defeat at Badr.
      In the initial battle, the greatly outnumbered Muslims (700 Muslims versus 30,000 Meccans), forced the Meccan Army back, leaving their camp unprotected. When the battle almost looked to be a Muslim victory, a blunder was committed by  the Muslim archers, which shifted the result of the battle. A breach of prophet’s (s.a.w.) orders by the Muslim archers, who left their posts to seek the booty from the Meccan camp, paved way for a surprise attack from the Meccan cavalry, led by Khalid ibn al-Walid. This attack created disarray and many Muslims were killed. Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) was also injured. After a fierce combat, the Muslims withdrew and regrouped higher up on the slopes of Uhud. The Meccans’ cavalry was unable to climb the slopes of Uhud, so the fighting stopped. The Prophet (s.a.w.) gathered his men together, rebuked them for their folly, exhorted them to obey orders in future, and led the chastened Medinites out to face the victorious Meccans once more. He came up with them in the early hours of the next morning. When the day dawned, the Meccans were running from battle field and Prophet PBUH had turned the defeat into victory.
      The Battle of Uhud was a major setback for the Muslims. According to the Qur’an, the misfortunes at Uhud, largely due to the negligence of the archers at rear guard abandoning their post in order to seek booty, were partly a punishment and partly a test for steadfastness. The Quranic verses provided inspiration and hope to the Muslims. They were not demoralized and the battle reinforced the solidarity between them.

      Site of Ghazwah al-Ahzab (Battle of the Trench). Also known as  Jang-e-Khandaq and Ghazwa-e-Khandaq. The battle was a fortnight-long siege of Medina by Arab and Jewish tribes. The strength of nonbelievers was 10,000 men, while the Muslims numbered 3,000. The battle began on March 31, 627. The outnumbered Muslims led by prophet Muhammad (PBUH), dug a trench, which together with Medina’s natural fortifications, rendered the confederate cavalry useless, locking the two sides in a stalemate. The confederates tried to convince the Medina-allied Banu Qurayza to attack the city from the south but prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) diplomacy upset the talks, and broke up the confederacy against him. The well-entrenched Muslims, the crumbling of confederate morale, and poor weather conditions caused the siege to end in a failure.

      The Valley of Mina. Mina (Also known as the Tent City) is situated 5 kms to the east of Mecca. There are more than 100,000 air-conditioned tents which provide temporary accommodation to pilgrims. In the Valley of Mina is the Jamarat Bridge, the location of the Stoning of the Devil ritual. At the start of Hajj, pilgrims go to Mina on 8th of Zilhija and  spend their first night there. Their next night stay is at Muzdalfa and then next two nights stay is again in Mina.

      The Plain of ArfatArfat is a vast open ground where the largest gathering of Muslims takes place every year on 9th of Zilhija. It is called “Waqoof -e- Arfat” (stay in Arfat). Muslims offer two combined prayers here under one Azan on Hajj Day. The qasar (shortened) prayers of Zuhar and Asar are offered here jointly just after concluding Khtuba-e-Hajj. Hajj is actually the name of Waqoof-e-Arfat and there is no substitute or penalty (damm) if someone does not attend the stay of Arfat. Penalty(damm) may be given against other Hajj elements but Waqoof-e-Arfat is essential. At Arfat pilgrims spend their time glorifying Allah, repeating the supplication, repenting to Allah and asking Him for forgiveness.
