Visit

Dar Al-Madinah (Kaaki)

Your trip will begin with a visit to the KAAKI museum, which highlights Islamic heritage and culture, as well as the city’s majestic and significant history, dating back to the Prophet’s first arrival in Al Madinah. The museum takes tourists on a first-hand voyage of illumination of Al Madinah through the years, with its stories and legends, sculptures, and unique exhibits.

Hijaz Railway Museum

A tourist should next go to the railway museum, which opened in 2006 and is located on the grounds of the reconstructed old Ottoman railway station in Medina, and includes a section of historic track as well as a train shed with four original tracks. Several engines and pieces of rolling stock are on exhibit, some of which were brought to the museum from various locations along the old Hejaz railway line. At least one engine has been refurbished to the point that it may be driven on museum tracks.

Qubaa Mosque

Then you have to go see the first mosque erected in Islam (Qubaa) as well as the first mosque built in the Prophet’s city. Qubaa Mosque is the first mosque erected by the house of Muslims, and it is located to the south of Madinah. The mosque was built by the Prophet Mohammed himself.

Grave of Hamza

After that, tourists will be driven to Hamza’s grave, also known as the Master of the Martyrs, a historically significant location. Originally erected during the reign of al-Nasir li-Din Allah, the Tomb of Hamzah ibn Abdul Muttalib (قبر حمزة بن عبد المطلب) was subsequently restored during the Ottoman Empire, most likely in the mid-nineteenth century. After they were slain in Uhud, Hamzah ibn Abdul Muttalib and his nephew Abdullah ibn Jahash were buried in this grave. During the 1926 demolition operation, the tomb above Hamza’s burial was removed, and the complex was split into two separate constructions, the Uhud Martyrs Enclave and the Sayed al Shohada Mosque.  Fatima (RA) used to visit Hamza’s tomb to take care of it.

Masjid A Nabwi

Masjid al Nabawi is Islam’s second holiest mosque and the world’s second-biggest mosque, after Mecca’s Masjid al-Haram. It is the Prophet Muhammad’s last resting place. It was constructed close to the home where the Prophet resided during his journey to Medina in 622 AD. It was an open-air structure with an elevated platform for Quran reading.

The mosque has been expanded several times throughout the years, with the most recent addition being in the mid-1990s. The green dome over the center of the mosque, where the tombs of Prophet Muhammad and early Islamic leaders Abu Bakr and Umar are housed, is one of the most noteworthy aspects of the site.
