With a few days to the commencement of the Hajj rites in Mecca, thousands of pilgrims continue to troop to the mosque of Prophet Muhammad in Medina to offer prayers close to his grave and reenact other Islamic rituals.

These acts of worship are done to rever Allah and  to show love to prophet Muhammad who is believed to have changed the course of history in the Arab peninsula.

After his rejection by the people of Makkah, the city of Medina hosted prophet Muhammad and his followers.

Medina is where the prophet will go on to live and eventually die.

His mosque, Masjid Haram situated at the heart of the city has therefore become a spiritual centre for thousands of pilgrims who usually visit to reconnect their spiritual life and faith to that of the prophet.

His grave which is situated within the mosque also serves as a significant landmark that reminds pilgrims on the need to emulate the selflessness of the man who gave his all for the benefit of mankind.

His pulpit is not left out as it provides an opportunity for pilgrims at his mosque to reflect the attributes of Allah which the holy prophet use to espouse in his sermons.

A visit to the prophet’s mosque in Madina, Muslims believe, therefore provides the spiritual platform for a successful hajj.
