The most virtous Visiting Centers in holy Madina

  img_article 1. Masjid Quba

When the Prophet [saw] and Abu Baker Siddique (R) disembarked at Quba, which lies a few kilometers south of the holy city and he stayed some days in the house of Kulthum bin Imru'ual Qais during his migration to Madina, he constructed a Masjid known as Masjid Quba. It is mentioned in the Qur'an as the mosque founded on piety and devoutness. When he arrived in Madina, the first act he performed was building of a mosque. "Verily, the mosque whose foundation was laid from the first day on piety is more worthy that you stand therein. In it are men who love to clean and to purify themselves.
And Allah loves those who make themselves clean and pure" (At Thaubah 108).
According to a Hadith in Tirmidhi, offering prayer in Masjid Quba is like performing an Umra i.e the reward is equivalent to it. As mentioned in Bukhari, the Prophet (SAS) used to visit Masjid Quba once a week. Abdullah bin Omar and other Sahabas used to follow this Sunnah.

2. Masjid Qiblatayn (the Mosque of two qiblas)

Masjid al Qiblatain (or the Mosque with two Qiblas), is situated in Madinah, a few kilometers from Masjid an-Nabawi. It is one of the oldest Mosques in the world. This is the Masjid in which our beloved Prophet (saw) received Allah's command to change the Qibla from Bait al-Muqaddas (Jerusalem) to the Holy Ka'aba (Makkah) in the second year of Hijrah. He longed to turn his face towards the niche of Ibrahim (A) in the Ka'aba at Makkah. The following verse was revealed at this time: "Verily! We have seen the turning of your face towards the heaven; surely we shall turn you to a prayer direction (Qibla) that shall please you "[Al-Baqarah; 144]. When Prophet (saw) was facing Jerusalem; after he had already completed two rak'ats of the noon prayer (reported to be either Dhur or Asr), the Angel Jibreel (A) communicated to him the command of Allah. So he turned his body around towards the Ka'aba during prayer, and so did his followers. Hence, this mosque came to be called Masjid Qiblatain, the Masjid with the two qiblas.

3. The battlefield of Uhud

This is known nowadays as 'Mashhad Hamza'. There are four graves of Muhajirin (one who migrated from holy Makkah to holy Madina) including the grave of Hamza (May Allah Mercy upon him) uncle of the Holy Prophet [Peace be upon him] who were martyred at the Battle of Uhud.

The Messenger of Allah (saw) and his companions had defeated the armed force of Quraysh in the battle of Badr. The flag of Islam was raised high and the disbelievers returned to Makkah disgraced, everyone mourning the killing of his relative and lamenting over his misfortune.

The defeat was so painful for the disbelievers that they resolved to confront the Muslims again. They spent a whole year amassing as many weapons and men as they could to fight the Muslims. They left Makkah for Madina in the third year of Hijrah in order to avenge their defeat during the Battle of Badr and camped at mount Uhud.

The Prophet (saw) set out in the company of one thousand men, one third of whom turned back home after travelling part of the way towards Mount Uhud under the influence of the head of the hypocrites; Abdullah bin Ubayy. The Prophet proceeded with the remaining men until he camped at the trail of Mount Uhud putting the mountain behind him and facing the idolaters. He assigned some fifty archers under the command of Abdullah ibn Jubair (R) to a small strategic foothill and commanded them not to leave their position under any circumstances.

The Quraysh were three thousand strong soldiers; among them were two hundred horsemen led by Abu Sufyan (r). Their intention was to put out the light of Allah and mislead His slaves, and the intention of the Muslims who numbered only seven hundred men, was to attain victory from Allah or achieve martyrdom.
