Islamic Guidelines for Visitors to the Prophet’s Masjid [Masjid Nabawi]


Islamic Guidelines for Visitors to the Prophet’s Masjid [Masjid Nabawi]

Visiting the Prophet’s Masjid is an act that is Sunnah; it is not an obligatory action and has nothing to do with Hajj, nor is it an action that is required in order for Hajj to be complete.

All the ahaadeeth which say that it is connected to Hajj or that say that visiting the grave of the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is  connected to Hajj are fabricated and false.

Whoever travels to Madeenah for the purpose of visiting the Masjid and praying therein, his intention is acceptable and his efforts will be rewarded.

Whoever travels there only for the purpose of visiting the graves and seeking the help of their occupants, his intention is haraam and his actions are reprehensible.

It was narrated from Abu Hurayrah that the Messenger of Allaah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:

“Do not travel to visit any mosques except three:

  • al-Masjid al-Haraam [in Makkah],
  • this Masjid of mine [in Madeenah] and
  • al-Masjid al-Aqsa [in Jerusalem].”

Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1189; Muslim, 1397.

Shaykh Salaah al-Budayr – Imam and Khateeb of the Prophet’s Masjid.
