Religious Significance of Madinah and the Sacred Journey of Umrah

Last Updated: February 12, 2024By

Madinah is one of the most beloved places to Muslims. The land encompasses a great virtue because Prophet (S.A.W.W) is buried here and his Masjid-e-Nabwi is the blessed place where rewards of deeds are multiplied. Therefore, pilgrim should be humble, abstain from sins and seek blessings while visiting the Holy Madinah in Umrah.

Madinah is the place where Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W) migrated and he took refuge there. The people of Madinah welcomed him happily and he gave his preaching there. In return, people of Madinah supported Prophet (S.A.W.W) and dedicated their lives to the message he brought. Masjid-e-Nabwi, the second largest Mosque in the world, is also in Madinah and is a most sacred place after Makkah.The sacredness of Madinah can be understood from the fact that angels safeguard the gates of Madinah, so neither plague nor Dajjal can enter it. Madinah is inviolable just as Makkah is. Moreover, visiting this place with sincerity and respect removes the sin just like an iron is made pure from impurities. Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W) made dua to Allah to bestow His countless blessings upon Madinah. Therefore, the rewards of righteous actions are multiplied in Madinah and offering a Salah is one hundred thousand times more than offering Salah anywhere else (except Al-Haram).

The visit to Holy Madinah requires more humility and respect than visiting Holy Makkah. The fact that the Messenger of entire humanity Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W) is buried there and he lived in Madinah entails us to be more respectful in our words and actions. Because the relationship between Allah and the mankind is that of a motherly one however, the relationship with Nabi Kareem (S.A.W.W) is more like that of a teacher-student, or a guide. Therefore, one needs to be extra cautious while visiting Holy Madinah, because we might know our single deed may earn the anger of Allah for disrespecting His beloved Prophet (S.A.W.W).

Apart, from thesanctity of this Holy place, sometimes the travelling issues cause trouble for pilgrims and they are unable to fulfil their religious obligation or to concentrate their worship. Many people who visit Madinah during Umrah, they wish to live nearby the Masjid-e-Nabwi in order to gain intimacy with the beloved Prophet (S.A.W.W).  Likewise, many pilgrims look for Umrah Packages which are budget friendly and at the same time comprehend their demands.
