Madinah Al-Munawarrah - 1

Inilah kubah hijau Masjid Nabawi.
Under the green kubah is makam Nabi Muhammad where his companions Saidina Abu Bakar and Saidina Umar were also buried. Makam nabi was originally his house, which was integrated as part of the mosque after many enhancement works made to the holy mosque by the rulers of saudi, over the years. between makam nabi and his mimbar (which is still there) is a small place, around 15m x 22m, called raudhah, that can be easily identified by the different colour of its carpet.
according to hadis, nabi said,
"between my home and my mimbar is a garden of the garderns of jannah (heaven)."
in other hadis,
"raudhah bagaikan sepotong taman syurga".
and it was also said in another hadis lain dikatakan,
"barang siapa yang banyak duduk (berdoa) di raudhah,
nescaya ia mendapat tempat istimewa di syurga".
That's why this small space is always crammed with people who berebut even for a tiny space to solat, doa or just recite al-quran. alhamdulillah, abah and mak was able to spend quite a considerable time in raudhah. nope, no pics of the raudhah because according to abah, there were many mosque officers there.

My beloved mak @entrance of Nabawi Mosque
Masjidil Nabawi is a very beautiful mosque that can accomodate about 535,000 people, and it's fully air-conditioned. it might be a hot place but there's zam zam water (brought by tankers from makkah) in hundreds of water barrels everywhere in the mosque and you can drink it as much as you want.

Makam Para Syuhada (close up).

Beside asjidil nabawi is a huge piece of land (about 6-8 times bigger than dataran merdeka), called al-baqi. this is where more than 10,000 syuhadas, nabi's companions and many other great names in islam were buried. to date, al-baqi continues to be used as a burial ground and could see burials made every day (as common as solat jenazah after every solat fardu) there.

Makam Para Syuhada.

There are no tombstones, but only simple stones the size of a football as a mark. when the land is full, the bodies will be dug out and buried in one liang lahad, thus the rest of the space can be used again. in this pic, you can see there were two groups bringing jenazah for burial.
