    The religious symbolism of Umrah and the connection to the Prophets (pbut) and esteemed ladies in Islam that you are walking in their steps is awe inspiring. 7 Tawafs, 7 Sa’ee, as I approached beloved Safa and Marwa with the prayers approaching facing the Kaaba Sharif and then the prayers and dua’s in between facing Kaaba Sharif with hopes and dreams as we made trips between Safa and Marwa to think what Bibi Hajra (pbut) had to endure for Ismail (pbut) and Allah swt delivered unto them gives us all hope that Allah swt will help us over come. As we met a lady who had lost her husband and was deeply upset we took her with us during our Sa’ee and told her that nobody is lost here in the house of Allah swt. With every lap her confidence grew for Allah swt is Mahram above all as they were was for Bibi Hajra (pbut)✨

    Not as difficult as people made it out to be, but it is definitely tough on the muscles. Wear shoes with good grip, bring lots of water, and watch your step. InshAllah make dhikr while you’re going up and all will be good. Keep your hands free to grab on to help you climb, and be extra careful about where your next step is. Go just after Asr to climb up by Maghrib and enjoy Isha at the top. I’ve seen people of all ages and (dis)abilities make it to the top by the will of Allah. Once you’re at the top, use the route between the rocks to get to the actual cave; the one around and over the rocks is tough and a little dangerous.

    To think of the Prophets that have graced Kaaba sharif from Adam (as) to Prophet Muhammad pbut to Isa (as) upon their return that when one arrives you are mesmerised seeing Kaaba Sharif, Hajar Al Aswad, Multazam, Iraqi Corner, Al Mizaab, Sham, Yemini corners and Hijr Isma’il, Maqaam e Ibrahim along with Zam Zam and Safa-Marwa. As I said my prayers setting eyes upon Hajar Al Aswad I felt myself blushing paying my Salaam’s with Allah hu Akbar as I made my Tawafs. Each Maqam presented themselves and I paid my salaams with grace. So heavenly is the feeling being at the Kaaba Sharif. Each station seeped in and witness to history that my excitement was euphoric as I passed them as long lost friends.
    Kaaba Sharif, Hajar Al Aswad, Multazam, Iraqi Corner, Al Mizaab, Sham, Yemini corners and Hijr Isma’il, Maqaam e Ibrahim along with Zam Zam and Safa-Marwa I congratulate you on the coming of our beloved. When they find themselves between Hajar Al Aswad and Maqaam e Ibrahim and the world conveys their Bay’ah to them may you convey my love to them and my eternal love to you all. Until we meet again ✨

    The place is easy to find and to be honest it was very clean and well organized to go visit, pray and leave. The experience was lovely but the shoes can be better organized when entering the mosque

    Golden Maqam e Ibrahim
    Blessed graces has it seen,
    Being in it’s presence is a dream,
    As we await that blessed day,
    United in Bay’ah Muslims will say,
    Our Imam is amongst us today,
    Allah hu Akbar they are Al Haq,
    Being Muslim is our luck,
    Bring forth Islams Golden age,
    Peace and prosperity will be written in history’s every page✨

    I read in alot of comments here people are saying Adam and Eve met on Mount of Rahmah but if read the authentic books of history scholars mention many different other points with authentic verses too about place of Adam and Eve where they met . But Mount of Rahmah is not mentioned anywhere in this regard.

    A must visit. Located south of Masjid Nabwi/ jannat ul baqi Gate.. it took me 5 minutes of walk from the South Gate. You do need to cross the flyover but this is easily done. The mosque is part of the Bilal market/ bazaar. You can get some great bargains.
    Overall, it’s a peaceful and less busy mosque and a must see in Madina

    The Hijaz mall is basically an average mall. It has a play area which would entertain little kids but I won’t suggest it for teens. There are your everyday shops like Starbucks and Mother Care but in the end it’s a good mall
